Trek Letter #10

Well it has being far too long since I did a trek letter but tonight I feel in the mood for a Trek letter as part of the ongoing Meanderfave Homework.


As Trek Letter ten is titled “Someone you don’t talk to as much as you’d like to” So for some reason my JJVerse 24th Century Xenktid wants to write to Emmylou.

For those not familiar with my JJVerse 24th Century stories, they are set after the Dominion War, which the Federation Allies did (just) win but at a heavier price.

Like in my Prime verse Emmylou and Xenktid are friends since there Cadet days but unlike in the prime verse Xenktid is the darling of the Federation , the great warrior who brilliance was vital to the defeat of the Dominion especially as she is the new and first non-human (She a Centuran) Captain of the USS Enterprise.

While too many of the Federation Emmylou is the villain of Starfleet, as she destroyed Earth Space Dock to keep it out of the hands of the Dominion War when Sol fell.

The fact that she was the most senior officer left alive to co-ordinate the forces that held the line long enough that Starfleet command and the senior Federation Government to evacuate to Tellar, and the so Federation survived long enough for Xenktid (and Emmylou) to strategize the plan that turned the tide and won the fight.


While most people with tactical awareness and thinking with their head accepted that Earth Space Dock had to be destroyed or the Dominion would have easily taken Tellar and New Vulcan within the week and ended the Federation resistance, the majority of people think with their hearts and just feel Emmylou lead the Starfleet abandonment of Earth in that dark hour.


Indeed most Admiral don’t want to admit the truth of that dark day, as such Emmylou has few friend in high places, only one Bolian Admiral publicly stands by her and he got her the command of the USS Copperplate, a war reparation Cardassian Galor class that Starfleet are using to fill their ship short-fall.


However some bitter Starfleet Admirals decided to use the Copperplate to see if the Cardassian command system of Gul and two Glinn (X/O) is better than the traditional Starfleet System since Cardassian ships seem to outperform there equivalent Starfleet vessel during the war. Indeed some Admirals seem to take pleasure in call Emmylou by her Brevity rank of Gul.

Xenktid is trying to be there for her friend Emmylou but leading the line doesn’t leave her much time to talk with her friend.

Anyway onto the Letter.


From: Captain Xenktid USS Enterprise

To: Gul Emmylou USS Copperplate


Dear Em,

Sorry for not writing sooner but I’m still getting use to the amount of bureaucracy that the Enterprise generates for me. I’ve got to admit my workload is helped (and hinder) by the Enterprise crew high efficiency at everything. The speed at which new ideas and suggestion come my way does seem almost scary at time. Still I’m slowly getting used to it and my new yeoman and X/O are both a great help.


Anyway I am pleased that the Admiralty saw sense and gave you your own command, even if it is a just a stinky war reparation Cardassian Galor class, I’m sure you will get a proper ship before long. Though I’ve also heard about the Gul and Glinn command system test they decided to force upon you. Whatever they throw at you I know you will raise to the challenge but in case you need a friend, please message me.


Please remember that you are good person and not the villain some would claim. Anyway I got to run but take care of yourself and I will try to write again soon.

Well wishes


Captain Xenktid.


Well that’s another letter down, as always pictures courtesy of trekcore.
Safe Trekking till next time.

The Trek Letter List – No. 9 Write A Letter To someone you wish you could meet

Sorry Real Life has kept me from bloging for a while, but I’m trying to get my writinghead back in the right zone. So I shall do the next Trek Letter.


Which is writing a letter from one of yourcharacter to someone they wish there could meet. Once again I struggle with this prompt, for once not to see how to translate this to the Trek setting because while Roddenberry humans still have heroes they also have the advent of Holodeck which means they can meet a simulation of there heroes anytime they wish. While it might be limited meeting I just feel that it would reduce the wish to write such letters to them.

So I had to go back to the earlier trek eras but still no ideas jump out for any of my normal characters from these eras. Hence the recent quiet blog period, which I try to find the letter.


Then this last fortnight (or so) two things happened that give me an idea the first as per the G&T show recommendation I did indeed watch the ‘Prelude to Axanar’ video on Youtube. Which I do recommend you track down and watch on Youtube if you haven’t already seen it. (I would embedit here but my old compute seem to hate embedding Youtube just don’t ask me why).

The second was while browsing mylocalcomic book store I spotted a discount version (due to minor cover damage) of Keith DeCandido “The Klingon Art of War” which again I felt might help me with inspiration after reading it in a single sitting, I felt it was indeed a good buy.

Having enjoying both of these differenttrek items call up to my mind Lily Klingon equal and antagonist (or at least she will be when I get round to writing more of Lilly USS Argonaut & Axanar voyages) B’sireyr. However in the meantime B’sireyr made a guest appearance in Weekly Free WriteWeek128“gettingSchooled” readable at:-


Now a Klingon wishing to meet a honourable enemy once final time on the field of Battle rather than waste away was the seed for this week blog letter.


For the attention of Lily of Earth,

From: B’sireyr, House of Ruv

Avenue of Blood,

First City,



Dear Honourable enemy Lily of Earth,

I know you were not expecting this letter and indeed given your death a couple of decades ago I don’t believe you would waste drinking time in the human version of Sto’ Vo’ Kor in reading the musing of your old blood enemy.

However as I lay here in my bed, no longer able to rise with the sun and fight.I know death comes closer with it bat’ leth held firmly to end my life, for I see it standing at the end of my bed. So before I ask my son Mukor to help me performmy last duty of Mauk-to’Vor. I intend to write this final letter to the one enemy who I would happily accept losing my life to on the field of battle, for you were indeed such a worthy enemy, something I am not sure that I appreciated during our first few engagements.


However in my many time facing you as a enemy I came to realise that you always help me to understand each of the nine core precept of qeS’a better and in particular the fifth precept: reveal your true self in combat.


For in our various combats in space and on alien worlds around the quadrant I came to realise I was to often controlled by my temper and didn’t value honour appropriately. While you also had awarrioress temper you could cage it long enough to see the bigger picture and pick your enemies and places of battle better than I and still hold true to your strange Federation believes.

However it was upon the ice fields of Kres’gar where you maroon us both, after you rammed your dying ship into mine, thus proving the value of the second precept, strike quickly or strike not. Then during our hellish journeys off those accursed ice fields we both fall manytimes to each other and the elements but in the words of Kahless when he explained the ninth precept, die standing up, “If you fall down eight times, you should get up nine times.” So did we both against the odds.


How I laugh with joy when I heard that you had fought your way off Kres’gar as well, for I look forward to the next opportunity to rejoin our constant battle and try to earn your head on my bat’leth to seal my most worthwhile victory over my favourite enemy.


Yet for all the later grand battles of the four-year war that we both fought in, we did not directly cross bat’leth again till after the war was over but I did hear of your part in the Federation victory at Edina Libirous.


Indeed the last time we meet in the fleshwas during the joint negotiations with the Rakitherians. Where we couldn’t fight directly so I challenge you to the Klingon strategize game of ‘Klin Zha‘ that youaccepted and over several alien drinks we gamed till the K’zinti assassin made the mistake of interrupting us. Thus reveal the truth of who was raiding the Rakitherians.


We never did meet again but I did hear of your death in battle with the legendary James Kirk at that Starfleet retirement home. How I envy you that a death in battle for the old warrioress while fighting alongside one of the greatest warriors of your race and maybe the galaxy has ever seen. Rather than pass away a broken old woman in her daughter guest bed.


I can now hear the sea washing up against the barge of dead and know my battles of this live are done and I have no more time to tell old tales. Perhaps maybe in Sto’vo’kor I will have the chance to meet you again and tell you of the mighty Khitomer Accords between our people that has the whole galaxy shaking or at least speak honestly and openly of my respect for you my warrior sister of the Federation.



Trying to beat the Block 2014

Well hello dear reader,

So it’s blog time again, and before I get to the Free-4-All Blog,

I just want to take a step back and revisited last week writing theme on unblock the block.

Now if you were hanging round the Ad Astra Forums ( you will have seen I’m trying to unblock a story I start back in February 2014 for the Holiday Origin story challenge.

The story features the stars of the Ariane NX-04 stories with a bit of a focus on Naurr and Douglas Gorrim. So far so good and I had a good organ idea which was inspired by reading David A. Goodman excellent Star Trek “Federation – The First 150 Years” and the piece about the Romulan War and in particular the Romulan devastating attack on Denobula 1st October 2158 so they could use they spaceport as a staging area before they attack on Sol a couple of weeks later.

The thing that stood out to me was the Denobulan entered the Romulan War as Earth only ally yet there was no mention of humanitarian aid or mutal support from Earth.

So as the other warp five ship were mention in the battle and none in defense it struck me that it would be a perfect opportunity to squeeze in the Ariane as it provide humanitarian aid and did the other functions that would have been need during an interstellar war with a unknown source.

The problem is to me the story seemed to have just a background but no challenge and despite several point of view changes the story just didn’t seem to having any hook.

So for Unblock the block I’ve tried to get the story going again with the help of the kind Ad Astra writers. It has improved and by bring in the temporary food shortage..


Captain Douglas Gorrim looked out of the window at Denobula, while taking another sip of his dark black coffee, which was as bitter as his mode. He looked once more upon the scares that the Romulans had inflicted upon an unsuspecting world. Behind him on the table lay several PADD with various department heads status reports on.


As the world slowly rotated below him he could see the six massive creators that the Romulans had inflict, to stop the Denobulan from resisting the Romulans abuse of their space sport facilities.

The Romulans were now long gone their expedition/invasion force to Sol had walked into Admiral Gardiner Ambush and been devastated.

Douglas activated his ship log reporter and said into it.

“Captain Log’s October 26th 2158 supplemental, The Ariane is now in orbit around Denobula and even from orbit the devastation of the Romulan recent callous attack is evident, the death count is many millions and with so many still missing I suspect it will only get higher over the coming days.

The Ariane crew are providing direct aid to the shell-shocked Denobulans, So far I’m proud to say that Commander Ziyl Engineering team have manage to establish two temporary power plants to allow the local civil defense force function better and dig several latrines to assist with the crippled and struggling local sewer system. However at the moment they are working overtime on helping the Denobulans to repair their overworked mass protein re-sequencers back on line. I’m told that the first signs of famine are already starting to show in the major urban areas.


Lieutenant Comsox science team are aiding the CMO Dr. Bernardine Keating-Fong team in identifying any wound buried under rubble but sadly more often than not they’re just pulling out more dead. I understand this morning the Beta shift team end up recovering bodies from a destroyed Children’s Hospital, I do not envy them having to do that, so in accordance with the good Doctor recommendation Beta Shift members have being put on reduced hours in order to keep them at peak efficiency, I almost wish we had a train councillor onboard to help them through the mental ordeal.

While Chef Naurr has gone into over drive with his soup kitchen to try and feed as many people as he can in the third city where food has struggled to get through, till we arrived. Lieutenant Akua security teams are working with the MACO’s and the local police to try and keep order at the kitchen so we can feed as many of the locals as we can, as fairly as we can. While the crew still onboard Ariane have switched to emergency rations, so that there is more food available to help the starving Denobulans.

While we await the arrival of the Enterprise and the Lexington with fresh supplies from other coalition members, I’ve tried to keep only a skeleton crew on Ariane so everybody who can be spared is planet side trying to provide extra aid. However Doctor Keating-Fong tells me that all of my department heads are already starting to show the strain of this aid mission, thus we’ve agree that she has a watching brief to send anybody back to the ship who can’t physically or emotionally cope with their assign task.

I’ve spoken with the Denobulan ambassador to the Coalition; thankfully she see this as a sign of the Romulans pure evil and not something that can be placed on humanity for being at war with them over the Starbase one massacre. I get the impression that as soon as the Denobulans get a new leader elected to replace the one killed in the attack, we will finally have another coalition member join us in the war against the Romulans.

Somehow it felt like that the tide of the war might have turn by a couple of Romulan mistakes as much as by our own efforts. Yet as I stare at the scars on the world below, I do wonder if they will ever be any peace among the stars for Humanity.”

The ship intercom whistle and his communication officer Ensign Savio Dubrovnik call interrupted Douglas.

Douglas quickly answered

“Captain Gorrim here, Savio what’s the issue?”

Savio replied

“Sorry to interrupt Captain but an urgent message has just come in for you, from Naurr,”

“Transfer it down here,” said Gorrim

“Aye Captain. I’m transferring it down now it’s audio only on channel two,” said Savio

With an acknowledgement to Savio, Douglas pulled out his communicator and switches it to channel two.

“Captain Gorrim here,” he said.

He was greeted by static, so he made a couple of adjustments before he hear Naurr voice.

“Please repeat Naurr,” said Douglas

“Captain, It’s Chef Naurr, someone has started a rumor the food will run out, I think you need to get down here, the locals are… well I don’t know the right word, but I think you need to get down here quickly, with some more MACOs.”

“I’m on my way,” Naurr.


With both shuttlepods already out on Denobula, and only being able to find one squad of MACO’s fit for duty on the Ariane, Douglas decided to risk it and use the Ship Transporter to beam down directly to the Soup Kitchen.


As the light and transporter paralysis left him Douglas could see why Naurr had struggle for the right word. The Denobulans were gather in loud crowds around the soup kitchen, most were dirty or wore damage clothes. There seem to be holding up touches and farming instruments. He estimates that the Ariane and local law enforcement were heavily outnumbered.

“Lovely touches and pitchforks, nice welcome,” said one of the MACO’s

“I predict a riot!” replied another.

Douglas turned round and give them both a hard stare, that he had recently learn from the MACO Major in charge of the MACO on the Ariane and the MACO with him got the hint and went silent and adopt a more active defense perimeter around him.

They’re arrival had gone unnoticed by either side and Naurr and a Denobulan in a uniform rush up to greet him.

“Captain!” Naurr shouted as he rushed up and hug him.

The Denobulan in the uniform spoke and it only took a moment for Douglas translator to pick the required translation.

“Captain Gorrim, Please to meet you I’m sub-lieutenant Phvolph, I’m in charge of police security for your soup kitchen, I’m Glad you here it might defuse the situation,”

“What’s the situation?” asked Gorrim.

Phvolph wait for the translation before replying.

“Somebody start a rumour that the food was running out, now the locals are gathering into family blocks, clear trying to seize the remaining food but at the moment no-one group seems ready to start on security, but as more people turn up, it will be a powder keg and something will start it.”

Douglas once he was happy with the translation decided to keep it short

“Okay, what your recommendation? Sub-lieutenant?”

“Evacuate your people or convince them the food will not run out,” answer Phvolph via the translator.

“Well the shuttlepod are too far away and the transporter limits mean it likely to take too long to get my people out.” Douglas turned to his chef “So Naurr what is the real food situation?”

Naurr rub the back of his neck and answered

“Not enough to feed all these people, we got maybe enough to feed three-quarters of them one more meal and then we need the new supplies from the Enterprise or the Lexington cargo run,”

“Which are both four hours away, I’m guessing it would take us an hour to use that up?” asked Douglas.

“At best,” said Naurr.

Douglas strokes his chin and said, “Best get me a microphone, I’ll see if I can prevent a riot,”

“How do you hope to do that?” asked Naurr with a bewilder look on his face.

“Explain it the start of the Hindu festival of light or Diwali and asked them to celebrate the forces of good in the universe by sharing their lights and more importantly food with those less fortunate,” replied Douglas,

“Is that Diwali?” asked Naurr

“Sort of, Religion isn’t my strong suit but let hope we can start a new tradition for a better tomorrow and not get lynched, there being enough death here recently,” answer Douglas


Still need a lot more work, the purple I know but what do people think of the latest bit?

Anyway Safe Treking till next time.

TTOT FAN ART Week First Pictures

Hello Readers,

Since I’m currently in my sick bed, I’ll hope you’re forgive me for a short post.

As I’m having problems posting pictures directly to the forum thread I’m going to post my pictures for TToT fanart week here in my Blog.



A rare picture of the Cajun Caitian onboard the Ariane NX-04. The Artist and date draw are now know but the bottle and two drink glasses on the serving tray appear to be bzart in origin suggesting this was drawing sometime round humanity first contact with the Bzart in 2159.


Safe trekking.

#Blog-Like-a-Boss 2014 Final Challenge.

Well as the week of Blog Challenges comes to an end, Admiral SL Walker has set one finally prompt challenge and like every question prompt this week, It set me thinking hard for a good honest answer and I can’t wait to see what everybody else produces.


Q1. What kind of writing would you like to tackle in the future?  

A1. How the actual invention of faster-than-light Warp Drive hasn’t invalidated Star Trek fiction. Preferable from the beech of a Risa like planet where hot green women like dancing for interstellar tourists.


What? A single guy can dream!


Still in truth I do want to try and get more short stories up on to the Archive and then try to do a longer series of inter-link short stories for each of Naurr, Lily and Emmylou and they colleagues.


Q2. What themes would you like to explore?

A2. Well looking at the Ad Astra theme list, I want to explore: –


  • Action/Adventure (Lily pre Centauran Contact Mission of Exploration).
  • Angst/Drama (Bread and butter to Trek stories).
  • Family & Romance (Lily and Martin courting / Prime Emmylou and Scott marriage)
  • Fantasy (Trips to the Holodeck J)
  • Friendship (Alternate TNG era Gul Emmylou and Captain Xenktid)
  • Holiday (Ganges for all the Holidays)
  • Horror (Yes Douglas, Lily and Emmylou exploration mission will show them horror,)
  • Humor (Always, a core part of good trek).
  • IDIC (Schick and Jolene plus many others)
  • Mystery/ Tragedy (I sure you all like to know what happen to the Ariane, I’m sure some day I reveal that mystery)


So that a wrap for #BlogLikeABoss Week.

As always I wish you all safe trekking whatever your destination.

Miranda Fave Homework

Well the USS FalseBill has opened it hailing frequencies and what do I discover? Only to find I’ve got more homework from Admiral Miranda Fave.


Q1. What do you consider as ingredients for a character?

A1. For me character needs to have a key virtual, a vices and a unique voice. The ability to stand up to you as the write and go no that not what I need, when writing them. When reading someone else character I think to be consider as a character is when they to give you the impression that they have also chosen they path of action more than the author did.


Q2. Do you begin with a sketchy outline or a cookie cutter template so to speak when you create your characters and crews? For example, do you say – I need a science officer let’s make him geeky and a buffoon with the ladies – or do you employ something a little more organic than that?

A2. I’ll say that each of my characters starts differently, some just start as a cookie cutter template while some are just randomly inspired by random casting ideas, i.e. I sew an actor and wonder what Starfleet character and species would they excel at. Other characters just enter stage left, hijack a scene and don’t leave. (Not mentioning any names, here like say Schick)


Q3. Do you look for traits, species, role; personality mixes with other characters when you conceive the character ideas?

A3. Well that depends if it a planned character or not. For most of my senior bridge crew I try to balanced the gender and races mix, once I’ve got those two characteristics I’m try to work out what personality and quarks might go with the character and not unbalance the rest of the crew. Yet in the end I still end up with a suck it and see approach and some habits disappear and get replaced and some quarks of character aren’t revealed.


Q4. What helps you recognize that a character is working (for you the author) within a story?

A4. Because they don’t always behave and they do their own thing in the middle of your crafted scene that makes it a different scene that you weren’t expected. They voice and action comes naturally without you really thinking about it.


Q5. Conversely, what makes you realize they don’t work or at least within a certain story context?

A5. When they disappear in the middle of a scene for a coffee break or every line feels forced, when it feels like you’re bend the character or the story to reveal the plot and the next step or conversations feels artificial forced.


Q6. What do you do then – jettison wholesale, rework and reshape, box and file and save for another story or day?

A6. Well it depends if I think the problem is the character or the story. I try not to jettison wholesale but re-cast or re-work the story or box it till I’ve time to reevaluate it with a fresh view.


I admit that I’ve currently have two stories sitting in the box and ready for beat the block challenge in Week 10. The question is do I go with the old Mirror universe precise I found during moving about an ex-Klingon lanky who once he tastes freedom, wants to keep it?


Or do I have another go at the Ariane at Denobula in the week after the Romulans direct attack on Earth and Denobula trying to give humanitarian aid to a devastated city and people who blames humans as much as Romulans for the war damage. So do you have any preferences dear reader?


The pictures are as always from

Anyway safe trekking till next time.

#Bosslikeaboss Prompt 5 to 7

Well one thing or another has kept me away from the blogsphere and I come back to find three very different questions that we’ve already seen fine answers for from Zeusfluff, Miranda fave, Jespah, Enterprise1981 and Kes7, so if you’ve not been over to look at those blogs yet, might I suggest you do take the time to go and visit them.



Miranda Fave





Q1. What character do you love to write most?  What about them makes them so compelling?

A1. Well the honest answer is my favorite character changes depending upon my frame of mind and mood when I’m writing. They are all like children to a certain degree it’s hard to pick between them to say which of them I love the most.

However I think Emmylou Galyaski wins just edging out Naurr. As I seem to keep coming back to her in the various stages of her life slightly more than the Cajun Caitian. Yet I can’t say what makes her so compelling to write as a character, other than she always has the power to surprise me. Emmylou seems to turn her hand to comedy as well as she does the romance, then she easily does angst/battle scenes. I think it was Miranda Fave who once said she had broadshoulders and I think it that story adaptability that has endear her to my heart and made her a pleasure to write.


Q2. Reviewing; what you love to see in a review, what you love to give in a review, what you want to do for your own reviewing skills in the future.

A2a. I just love to see a review of any sort. So many people seem to just walk away after reading a story and you’ve no idea if they finished the story or whether they like it or hate it, so even a couple of words has meaning. I mean I agree with the other bloggers a reply that got some meat and constructive content to it

A2b. What I like to give in a review is a positive acknowledgement that I’ve read the story and when I can thinkof something suitable a salient point brought up by their works.

A2c. As for my future reviewing skills I want do it better but the path to that isn’t clear right now, so keep doing reviews and hope practice makes perfect.

Q3. Writing a summary, how do you do it?  And what about the story summaries of others draws you in?

A3a. With great difficult is the honest answer, I don’t have the skill of someone like Kes7 to write a quick blab and it one of the thing that gives me a cold sweat each time I post a new story to Ad Astra archive and it ask me to enter the story summary.

Now I know writing summary is a specialist skill and not all of us have the knack to write to the high standard Kes7 does, so I try to go with the old advise of just imagine you answering a mate, when they ask you quickly what the plot of the book you’re reading now. So you’ve only got a sentence of about twenty-five words to sum it up.

Q3b. As for what summaries draw me into reading a story, I’ll say that while most readers will know my struggles with English grammar and punctuation, I do still want to see no significant errors in a summary, as long as I can read it without noticing the grammar then want I want is to see something different or something clever or a interesting mystery.


Well that my brief answer on those questions, I hope you find something interesting in there.

Pictures are curiosity of

I wish you safe trekking what ever your destination or alliance.

TTOT2014 W7 Blog Four


Hello again Reader,

So it’s another day and time again to #Bloglikeaboss only the daily prompt seems to be lost in the Delta Quadrant.


Well after yesterday’s blog self-congratulations love-in or was it an in-fight?


I’m trying to work out what to blog about as I’m not feeling in the mood for another Trek Letter, since it Jalke’i turn and I do need her to wake up from the coma at the end of Dance By The Pale Moonlight again, readable here if you have got some spare time :-


I shall have to think of something else so Instead here is a quick tour round the False Bill Trekverse main characters.


So back to the beginning circa 2158 to 2161 and the Ariane NX-04

This NX cruiser has the unique honor of being the first Starfleet vessel to be built outside Sol and at a non-human spacedock. As it was built at the famous Telarite Shipyards under contract due to Earth urgency need for warp five ships to fight the Romulan war.

One of the minor faults with this ship is the signage is all in Telarite. This might seems to draft to believe but does have it inspiration in a real Royal Navy Incident.


Captain Douglas Gorrim

Is the Commander of Ariane and he is was created to be more of a scientist than the fighter-jock that Jonathan and Erika to reflect Starfleet would need the Ariane Captain to be smart and diplomatic enough to get the Ariane built without upsetting the collation partners. Plus the Ariane secret order is to try and work out a way to find the location of Romulus or key Romulan bases.

For my preferred Doug story see Doug’s bug hunt

Chef Naurr

The Cajun Caitian is the runt of his litter and so has spent his life drifting from job to job, till he finally got a chef job on one of his sister’s interstellar freight ship, which the Romulans destroyed. Naurr was save by the crew of Ariane, feeling he owe then a debt and having no-where to go. Via broken English he talk Douglas into giving him the vacant chef role, which seems madness at first but slowly with help from the crew specially his best friend Philippe Rivette and pen pal letters from the ex-NX-01 sous chef Lili Beckettto bring out his secret talent. In the friendly environment of the Ariane he makes new friends and provides an innocent aboard view upon Humanity onboard the Ariane.

For a great Naurr (stolen toys)story see SL Walker Cajun Caitain


Lily Fitzroy



From there we jump to circa 2230’s and Lily Fitzroy, who after a first contact mistake is take off the USS Argonaut and assign to teach tactics to Cadets at Starfleet Academy. However in these dark times she found an old Friend Martin Lallason who is the friend in need, which soon develops into the start of something special.

For more of these two see Favorite things:-


Emmylou Galyaski

From here we have a big jump (for the time being) to the STO timeframe year of 2409 and the Federation Starbase (or mad-house) USS Ganges led by Admiral Emmylou Galyaski.


Admiral Emmylou Galyaski is the kind Grandmother or head inmate of this asylum depending upon your view. As an officer who gain a lot of frontline experience during the Dominion War as the X/O of the Galaxy Class USS Atlantis especially during the seize of Cait and the final battle for Cardassia. Post war she commanded the science wing variant excelsior USS Trireme while also brings up her children onboard.

Still for more of this valiant old lady see Remembrance 2409: –


Well I hope this little view was interesting to you reader,

Photograph Picture are from and hand drawn drawing are mine 😉 so till next time stay safe.

TTOT2014 W7 Day Two Blog


So it’s Day two and time once more to Blog like a Boss.

Q1. Who’s your favorite Trek blogger and why?

A1. Um, um ai yi yi that is an unfair question it so hard to choice between all of the fine Trek Blog out there. I mean everybody does a good job with providing a unique voice and viewpoint on the greater Trek fan-verse.


I would sum them up but Jespah has already beaten me to it, so for a good review of the main movers and shakers in the Ad Astra Trek Blog sphere go have a look at it here: –


As you can tell I’m trying to delay answering the question.

So I’m going to be honest and say it a tie for me and which is my favorite depends upon my mood when I read them, so fanfare please for: –

Jespah getting into the nitty gritty of the NX Era.

Barking up the Muse Tree by Jespah



Miranda Fave Meanders


So why did I pick these two?

Well Jespah is one of the most regular updaters and she put a lot of effort into her cross-promotion of her works and other writing venues and her character analysis blogs always provide food for thought.


As for MF, he writes some of the most amusing trek stuff but when he put his serious analysis head on, he puts together well thought out and good analysis of his topic especially in his boldly reading reviews.


Anyway that all I’ve got for you today.

So till next time take care and trek safely across your quadrant.

TTOT2014 W7 Day One Blog

Hello Reader,

Well after a bit of technical communication issues, that I shall blame on the Mimes. Week Seven of the Twelve Tasks of Triskelion 2014 is underway and it is now time to Blog like a Boss.


Q1. What has Star Trek fandom — and ficcing specifically — meant to you?

A1. Well as ficcing isn’t a valid word, it doesn’t mean anything. 🙂

So the read question is what does the Star Trek Fandom mean and all the fine fiction that comes out of it. Honestly I’m not sure I can put into words what it means to me.

Star Trek and my writing have always being my escape from the harsh reality of the real world and the pressures of work. A chance to enter into a world where fairness is a normal part of the human condition. I think this is reflected in the kind way Trekkie treat each other and how they seem proud to be who they’re regardless of what the rest of the world thinks.

To me Star Trek (TOS) repeats along with Doctor Who and Terrahawks, were my entry into Science Fiction genre and stories that are able to ask big questions and explore big ideas and the core questions of humanity.


Q2. What is the hardest story you ever had to write?  

A2. I don’t think any story is easy to write especially with all my problems with spelling grammar and so for me I think getting start on Ad Astra was the hard, but the hardest story was one that was throw up by a random back-story comment that came out during Emmylou and Jalke’i first meeting back in one of my early Weekly Free Write Story. A couple of people said they want to know that story. I’ve got to admit so did I, but all I had was a single line that sum up the whole story. So I had to go back and expand it into the story that I want to tell. It took a reasonable amount of help from LBD as the Beta before it become “Argonaut Prime Minister Incident”, which on top of all the core structure I want to try and to make lily a believable Commodore and starship captain and her first contact screw up due to a human failure. The story is far from perfect but it’s one of my early archive story it does holds a special place in my fiction.

Q3. What was the easiest? And why?

A3. You know I find this a much harder question to answer. As | said I’ve always struggle with delivering spelling and grammar to a good standard, so I don’t think any story was easy to get into the Archive.

However the one that I found surprisingly easy to write was Bow of the Wolf, which was written for SL Walker as A Stuff The Stocking 2013 gift.
