Author has written 3 stories for Terminator: Sarah Connor Chronicles, and Halo.
I am 20 years old and have been a huge fan of TSCC and the movies for a long time, I am also a fan of Halo and Star Trek.
Updates on Override Fate: Cause and Effect are being put off due to lack of muse and other problems I have with the story.
Forward Unto Dawn is my current obsession and hopefully will be completed during 2014.
Thanks to all the TSCC fanfiction writers out there who's works have inspired me to write my own stories!
Override Fate Trilogy (BTR AU)
Part 1 of the Override Fate series is complete.
Part 2 is in production, but on hold for now. A Firefly/Serenity and TSCC Crossover.
Part 3, being planned on the most basic level.

Star Trek: Enterprise (2151-2155, 2161) Four Seasons, Pre-Federation.
Follows the adventures of Captain Johnathan Archer and his crew aboard the experimental NX-01 Enterprise, the first human ship to achieve warp 5. This is the ship that sets the grounds for the eventual United Federation of Planets and saves the human race from several threats that originated from the extremely distant future.
Main characters: (These details are rather scant, but these people will be referenced only in my story if at all)
Captain: Johnathan Archer, a human whose father designed the engine by which the Enterprise was driven. He became a legendary captain over the ten years he served as the commanding officer of the Enterprise. He and his crew met many new species that would later become the first members of the United Federation of Planets.
Science Officer: T'Pol, a female Vulcan sub-commander who worked as a liaison for the Vulcans who feel humanity isn't ready for intergalactic exploration and the complicated politics that follow it.
Chief Engineer: Charles 'Trip' Tucker, A long time friend of Archer whose also one of the greatest engineers in the fleet. He served ten years on the Enterprise before dying trying to save an Andorian friend's daughter right before the ship's decommissioning and subsequent signing of the Federation charter.
Tactical Officer: Malcolm Reed, An English man whose family had served the Royal Navy for generations, but Reed joined Starfleet due to a fear of drowning. He also serves as chief of security and became the first human to invent force fields.
Translator: Hoshi Sato, A linguistic genius who was handpicked by Archer himself because of her ability to learn alien languages quickly. Her talents proved invaluable on numerous occasions and eventually helped create the first Universal Translator. She often questioned her usefulness on the Enterprise but eventually saw herself as a key part of it. She also feared the transporter.
Helmsman: Travis Mayweather, Born and raised on a freighter, he knew the star systems surrounding Sol and his knowledge was valuable early on, but since the Enterprise was many times faster than his family freighter, they quickly left behind familiar space and his usefulness in this area diminished. His piloting skills, however, saved them numerous times over the years and was always the one Archer went to when he needed a pilot on an important mission.
Chief Medical Officer: Doctor Phlox, A Denobulan who was part of the Inter-Species Medical Exchange, was initially brought on board during the pilot to treat a Klingon who crash landed on Earth while they transported him to Kronos, the Klingon home world. He preferred natural cures over normal ones and devised a treatment to kill Borg nanoprobes that was deadly to humans and extremely harmful to his own species, but due to his incredible immune system he was able to keep himself from being assimilated. (These were drones that had accidentally been revived by a team of scientists who discovered the remains of a Borg sphere in the Arctic ice. See Star Trek: First Contact for more info)
Star Trek: The Original Series (2264-2267) Three Seasons, Federation Era.
This follows the famous Captain James T. Kirk through out the NCC-1701 Enterprise's 5 year exploratory mission. The show only covers the first three years due to the show being cancelled after season three. The Federation has already been around 100 years and is one of the most powerful sects in the Alpha quadrant. The main protagonists are the Klingons and occasionally the Romulans. More frequently, however, they run into powerful species or beings that vastly out strip them in power and often use their smarts and some technobabble science to get them out of a jam instead of shooting their way out.
Commanding Officer: Captain James T. Kirk, Considered the greatest captain in Starfleet history, he used his incredible amount of luck coupled with his brilliance to use his human and technological resources to get the job done almost every single time. He was well known for being a ladies man but he never settled down and married despite wanting to. He was promoted to Admiral upon return from the 5 year mission of exploration.
Science Officer/First Officer: Commander Spock, Half human, half Vulcan. Takes after his Vulcan side and acts accordingly. Considers Kirk and McCoy his closest friends. Spock is considered one of the most brilliant scientific minds in the Federation and server Starfleet for many decades on the Enterprise before becoming an Ambassador for nearly a century.
Chief Medical Officer: Lieutenant Commander Leonard McCoy, Born in Georgia and known for his usually cranky attitude, he often clashes with Spock's logic with his own unrestrained human emotions. He served Starfleet for over a century by the time the Enterprise-D was launched in 2364, one hundred years after his own Enterprise set out on their five year mission.
Chief Engineer/Second Officer: Lieutenant Commander Montgomery 'Scotty' Scott, An Scottish engineer whose brilliance was rarely matched in his field and was known as a miracle worker due to his ingenious solutions and quick repair times. He retired in 2293, and shortly after, was enroute to a retirement colony when his ship crash landed. The ship was intact, but was in no shape to fly. With everyone dead save him and the captain of the transport, he put both of them in a transporter loop to keep themselves alive. Though the captain was irretrivable when the Enterprise D discovered the ship 75 years later, Scott survived and went on to work as a star ship designer for Starfleet.
Communications Officer: Lieutenant Nyota Uhura, A linguistic genius in her own right and an excellent communications officer. During the latter part of her career she took on a more active role in missions.
Helmsman: Hikaru Sulu, A gifted fencer as well as a great pilot, know to be good with the ladies like his Captain. He later went to Captain the USS Excelsior in the early 2290s and joined his former commanding officer as one of the greatest captains in Starfleet history.
Navigator: Pavel Chekov. A young super-genius who started serving on the Enterprise at age 17. He's of Russian decent and never lets anyone forget it.
NCC-1701 USS Enterprise:
Status: Destroyed (2285)
Captains: Robert April, Christopher Pike, James Kirk (2264-2270), Willard Decker (During refit and shakedown in 2271-72), James Kirk (as a rear Admiral until 2281), Spock (2281-2285), Admiral Kirk (2285)
Constitution class (three major versions, early, classic, refit)
The Enterprise was the second Constitution class vessel to be launched by Starfleet.
Armaments: Type VI phaser banks and two photon torpedo launchers, one forward on the saucer, one rear on the engineering hull.
(Ship armaments and dimensions changed during the refit of 2271, though I see no need to list them here)
Star Trek: The Animated Series (2268-2270) Two Seasons, Follows Original Series Characters in an animated format.
Star Trek: The Motion Picture(I), (2272) First Movie, Features a newly refitted Enterprise staving off a monstrous AI that was originally the Voyager VI space probe(fictional, we only launched two) and returned home per it's programming after being given a huge space ship for it's own use by a race of machines elsewhere in the galaxy, but it didn't like what it found. Using brains rather than might, now Admiral Kirk and his crew figure out what V'ger (the new name for it) needs so it will leave Earth alone and succeeds.
Wrath of Khan(II) (2285) The Enterprise is now a training vessel commanded by Captain Spock. Admiral Kirk has a birthday and worries about his growing age. His long time friend, Doctor McCoy, suggests he get his command back and do what he was meant to do, captain a star ship. He gets his chance when a space station science lab creating a top secret device gives him disturbing news before the channel was jammed. What happened was a previous enemy from his 5 year mission escaped and took over a Starfleet vessel Chekov was serving on. This ship, Reliant, was being used to find a suitable test planet for the GENESIS device that the science lab was putting the final touches on. This enemy, a genetically enhanced human from the late 20th century, known as Khan, finds out about the device and tries to obtain it while exacting his revenge on Kirk and the Enterprise.
In the end, the Enterprise is badly damaged and many of the training crew are injured or killed, but thanks to Kirk's experience, he manages to defeat Khan. However, Khan had obtained the GENESIS device and sets the detonator before dying. With the Enterprise's warp drive offline, it cannot escape the GENESIS blast wave. Spock realizes this and goes to engineering to fix the drive, but at the cost of his own life due to extreme radiation poisoning.
After escaping the wave, Spock lives long enough to tell Kirk goodbye.
Search for Spock(III) Sequel to STII.
Basically, the Enterprise returns back to Earth for decommissioning after 40 years of service. It is discovered during this time that Spock mind-melded with McCoy just before he died. To honor his friend's customs, he steals the Enterprise and returns to the newly formed GENESIS planet to retrieve Spock's body from it's casket to take it to Vulcan.
Instead, a cloaked Klingon bird of prey throws a wrench into works and costs Kirk his son, who worked on the Genesis device, and disables his ship.
Using the Enterprise as a last resort weapon, he lures most of the Klingon crew on board as they evacuate, but only after activating the self destruct.
The famed star ship destroys itself and takes all but four of the Klingon crew with it.
The artificial planet begins to destroy itself due to a design flaw in the GENESIS device, and oddly enough had resurrected Spock's body whose casket soft landed on the planet. After defeating the rest of the Klingons, the crew escape in the bird of prey and take Spock's body and mind to Vulcan to be reunited.
The Voyage Home(IV) (2286) Sequel to STIII
A more humorous sequel to STIII that takes place a month after Spock's body and mind are rejoined on Mt. Selaya on Vulcan. After having gone through a multitude of tests, Spock leaves with the rest of his former crew aboard the Klingon Bird of Prey to face the court martial back on Earth for stealing the Enterprise.
En route, A large cylindrical probe enters Earths orbit and tries to communicate with someone or something, but it's technology causes all modern tech to not function as well as vaporizing the oceans and causing severe weather.
Once Kirk and Spock figure out what the probe is trying to communicate with, which turn out to be humpback whales that were hunted to extinction, they use the slingshot method to return to the 20th century to bring some back.
After using the ship's small size and cloaking device to their advantage, they track some down and manage to solve an age old mystery of how to recrystallize Dilithium, a crucial mineral that regulates matter/antimatter reactions in most warp reactor designs.
Once all of this is accomplished, they take off for the future, return home, and save Earth.
Due to their heroic actions, all charges are dropped except one that applies to Kirk alone, disobeying a direct order from a commanding officer. He is demoted from Admiral back to Captain and given a new ship.
The NCC-1701-A, a visually identical Enterprise that has a few upgrades.
The Final Frontier(V) (2286)
Not much happens in this movie that is applicable to my story, but essentially takes place not long after Kirk and his crew take command of the Enterprise-A. Shakedown proves to be disastrous as numerous systems keep failing due to the ship's rapid refit.
This weakness allows Spock's half brother (and his separatist group of Vulcans who express their emotions instead of suppressing them) to take control of the ship and take it to the center of the galaxy where Sybok (Spock's half brother) believes they will find God at it's center instead of a massive black hole.
In a sense he's right, there is a planet and a deity of sorts, but it is not God, but is rather a not so friendly being. In the end, Sybok sacrifices himself to allow Kirk and the rest to escape the entities wrath.
The Undiscovered Country(VI) (2293)
Seven years after taking command of the Enterprise A, Captain Kirk and his crew, except Sulu who had recently taken command of the Excelsior, use the environmental crises on the Klingon home world to bring the warrior race to the negotiating tables. Kirk is initially set against the orders from Starfleet, but follows them anyway. Disaster strikes when the Klingon Ambassador's ship is attacked seemingly by the Enterprise before two Starfleet officers in EVA suits beam over and shoot the Ambassador.
Kirk and McCoy beam over to offer assistance, but when the Ambassador dies from his wounds, they are arrested and taken to court.
While the two of them struggle to survive, Spock and the Enterprise crew try to uncover the conspiracy behind the attack. After deceiving Starfleet Command in order to rescue their two crew members, they finally realize that the Vulcan that Spock's protege', Valeris, is part of the conspiracy.
Once rescuing the Captain and doctor, they set course for Khitomer, the planet that was hosting the rescheduled peace talks. The arrive just in time to prevent the assassination of the new Klingon ambassador after jointly destroying a cloaked Klingon bird of prey that could fire while cloaked with Sulu's Excelsior.
This event began the a new era in the Alpha Quadrant as the Klingons and the Federation worked towards eventual peace, ending decades of hostilities towards one another.
Star Trek: The Next Generation (2364-2371)
This late 1980's reboot was the continuation to the Star Trek saga set exactly one hundred years after the beginning of Kirk's five year mission. This show was intended to show how much Starfleet, the Federation, and the rest of the Alpha Quadrant in general, changed as a result of things that occurred in the Original series and it's subsequent movies.
Now at peace with the Klingons, the Romulans and eventually the Borg become the main antagonists to the series with the Cardassians showing up later.
The new Enterprise, NCC-1701-D, the fifth ship to bear the name and registry (NCC-1701), is the most advanced ship in the fleet and serves also as it's flagship.
The new crew are put to the test right away when they are introduced to Q, a member of an omnipotent race who loves to harass lower species. The new Captain, Jean-Luc Picard, and his senior staff quickly prove themselves and pass Q's test while saving an endangered life form that had been exploited by a nearby race.
The Enterprise and her crew are given the same assignment as it's predecessors, explore uncharted space and discover new life forms and new civilizations.

Length: 641 m Width: 470 m Height: 145 m
Armaments: 12x Type X Phaser arrays. 2x burst fire photon torpedo tubes, capacity 250 torpedoes.
Star Trek: Deep Space Nine (2369-2376)
Unlike the previous Star Trek, set on starships, Deep Space Nine's primary setting is a space station, Deep Space 9, formerly the Cardassian station Terok Nor. The station is a key strategic location, near to the planet Bajor, itself near the Cardassian border, and most significantly (following the events of the first episode) the station is situated next to the Bajoran wormhole, giving access to the Gamma Quadrant. The station also had a complement of runabouts, and later the USS Defiant, allowing stories to take the characters away from the station itself.
Due to the mostly stationary situation of the series, DS9 tended more toward continuing stories, rather than the "alien of the week" approach common to other series. Some of the main arc's involved: the Bajorans growing from years under occupation by the Cardassians, eventually joining the Federation; Captain Sisko's role as the Emissary; and the build up to, eventual breakout, and aftermath of, the Dominion War.
The series established and developed several races and cultures, most prominently the Bajorans and Cardassians, but with significant attention also paid to the Trill, Ferengi and Klingons. The Cardassians were commonly portrayed as the series' villains, and were later supplemented by the Dominion, led by the Founders, and represented by the Vorta, and Jem'Hadar soldiers, and the Dominion's allies, the Breen.

Star Trek: Generations (VII), (2371)
The story begins with the launching of the U.S.S. Enterprise (NCC-1701-B) in 2293, just months after Star Trek VI, and the mysterious disappearence of Captain James T. Kirk. Then, seventy-eight years later, Captain Jean-Luc Picard of the U.S.S. Enterprise (NCC-1701-D) receives a distress call from a remote scientific observatory.
Picard learns that a newly developed superweapon, a sun destroying trilitium torpedo, had been stolen by a desperate scientist with an insane to gain access to a reality where greatest desires are realized.
When he fails to do so, his ship, and the planet they were trying to save are destroyed as it's star explodes, but he is sucked into the same reality, called the Nexus. When he realizes that it isn't real, he seeks out the help of another Starfleet officer who'd long been thought dead but had actually been caught in the same phenomena.
James T. Kirk, the famous 23rd century Starfleet Captain.
After convincing Kirk, both stop the insane scientist, Tolian Soran, from destroying the star, but at the cost of Kirk's life.
In the aftermath of the battle waged between the Enterprise-D and Soran's conspirators, Picard learns of his ship's demise, but relieved to know that the crew escaped in the saucer section of the ship before crash landing on the planet.
Star Trek: Voyager (2371-2378)
Launched in the year 2371, the Intrepid-class Federation starship USS Voyager was a ship built to return to Starfleet's founding principle of scientific exploration. It was fitting that the ship's Captain, Kathryn Janeway, rose up through the science ranks rather than command. On the ship's first mission while departing from Deep Space 9, required it to find and capture a Maquis vessel that disappeared into the treacherous Badlands. As a result, the crews of both Voyager and the Maquis (a terrorist/resistance group) ship it was pursuing, were swept clear across the galaxy and deep into the Delta Quadrant. This was the doing of a powerful alien being known as the Caretaker. The 70,000 light year transit cost the lives of over a dozen crew members. Captain Janeway was forced to destroy the massive alien array that housed the remains of the Caretaker. In doing so, she saved an alien race, the Ocampa, but stranded Voyager and the crew in the Delta Quadrant.
United in a common purpose, the surviving Maquis rebels joined with Janeway's Starfleet-trained crew on Voyager. Though a journey back to the Alpha Quadrant would have taken more than seventy years through unknown and treacherous territory, the crew of Voyager was well served by Janeway's skilled leadership and their own steadfast determination. Ultimately, Voyager returned to the Alpha Quadrant in seven years.
Of course, the crew's return home was far from boring. Voyager made first contact with over 400 completely new species in the Delta Quadrant, discovered links to Earth's early space exploration history, utilized and even pioneered new technologies, all the while engaging in countless other adventures that would astonish the mind.
The crew encountered species ranging from the violent and ruthless Kazon, the Phage-afflicted Vidiians, the colorful Talaxians and the ephemeral Ocampa. The crew's other encounters included run-ins with the temporally-sophisticated Krenim, the predatory Hirogen, the toxic Malon and the scheming Hierarchy. The crew picked up passengers along the way including the wily but extremely resourceful Talaxian, Neelix, along with the Ocampan telepath, Kes (who, as a parting gift to the crew in 2374, used her new found powers of telekinesis to thrust Voyager 9,500 light years closer to the Alpha Quadrant).
Most memorable, however, were Voyager's repeated clashes with the dreaded Borg. While each encounter posed grave danger, Voyager was able to prevail every time. At one point, Janeway actually negotiated a temporary peace with the Borg when they perceived a common threat in a mysterious alien species from fluidic space. ("Scorpion") At other times, she was able to liberate Borg drones from the Borg Collective including Seven of Nine, Mezoti, Azan, Rebi and Icheb. Other instances pitted Voyager against not only the Borg, but also against the nightmarish Borg Queen herself.
Several years after Voyager's disappearance into the Delta Quadrant, Starfleet Command learned of the starship's fate. Subsequently, the Pathfinder Project was created. It was a Starfleet Communications project that attempted to communicate with Voyager through the MIDAS array via a micro-wormhole and the Hirogen communications network. Thanks to the hard work and enthusiasm of Lieutenant Reginald Barclay(A former crew member of the Enterprise-D and E), the communications technology improved to a level whereby contact could be made on a regular basis. In 2377, the crew was able to receive monthly data streams from Earth that included letters from the crew's families, tactical upgrades, and news about the Alpha Quadrant.
In 2378 Voyager made a triumphant return to the Alpha Quadrant with the help of a future Admiral Janeway by utilizing and then destroying a Borg transwarp hub, and after a turbulent trip, a celebration was held in honor of Voyager's return back home.
Commanding Officer: Captain Katheryn Janeway
Kathryn Janeway was a 24th century Starfleet officer, most noted for her service as captain of the starship USS Voyager. She became the first Federation captain to successfully traverse the Delta Quadrant, encountering dozens of new planets and civilizations over the course of seven years.

First Officer: Commander Chakotay
Chakotay was a 24th century Human Starfleet officer and former Maquis member, best known as first officer under Captain Kathryn Janeway aboard the USS Voyager.
In 2371, while Starfleet and the Cardassians were trying to capture him in the Badlands, Chakotay and his Maquis crew were pulled 70,000 light years across the galaxy, deep into the Delta Quadrant by the Caretaker's array and forced to merge with the crew of the Voyager during its seven-year journey home. Before serving as Voyager's first officer, he had resigned Starfleet after years of service in order to join the Maquis to defend his home colony against the Cardassians.
Tactical Officer/Chief of Security: Lieutenant Commander Tuvok
Lieutenant Commander Tuvok was a 24th century Vulcan Starfleet officer. He served as Captain Kathryn Janeway's tactical and security officer as well as second officer during USS Voyager's seven year journey through the Delta Quadrant.

B'Elanna Torres was a Klingon-Human hybrid and former Maquis who served as Chief Engineer on the Federation starship USS Voyager under Captain Kathryn Janeway.
Cheif Medical Officer: Mark I Emergency Medical Hologram, aka, the Doctor
"The Doctor" was USS Voyager's Emergency Medical Holographic program (or "EMH") and Chief Medical Officer during the ship's seven year journey through the Delta Quadrant. The EMH Mark I, of which The Doctor was an example, was a computer program with a holographic interface in the form of a Human male Doctor.
Operations Officer: Ensign Harry Kim
Harry S.L. Kim was a Human Starfleet officer who was best known for serving as operations officer aboard the starship USS Voyager during the seven years it was lost in the Delta Quadrant.
Astrometerics Officer: Crewman Seven of Nine
Seven of Nine (full Borg designation: Seven of Nine, Tertiary Adjunct of Unimatrix 01) was a former Borg drone. She was born Annika Hansen on stardate 25479 (2350), the daughter of eccentric exobiologists Magnus and Erin Hansen. She was assimilated by the Borg in 2356 at age six, along with her parents, but was liberated by the crew of the USS Voyager in 2374. She joined the crew and returned to the Alpha Quadrant with the starship in 2378.
Ambassador, Cook, and Morale Officer: Neelix
Neelix was a 24th century Talaxian who joined the USS Voyager when it was pulled into the Delta Quadrant by the Caretaker's array in 2371. During Voyager's seven year journey through the Delta Quadrant he served as the ship's chef, morale officer, "ambassador to the Delta Quadrant" and navigator, in addition to forming close personal friendships with many crew members and becoming a valuable member of the stranded Starfleet crew. He left Voyager just weeks before the ship's miraculous return home in 2378.
