Author has written 15 stories for StarTrek: Other.

I started writing this fanfiction about 20 years a go, maybe a bit more. I published about 12 stories on TWG, the Trek Writers Guild site, most of which are still there I think but haphazardly so. A couple of years ago I revisited the stories as I felt I wanted to update them. I fiddled around a bit, but didn't get far. It wasn't until I went to FCD UK and then the ST convention in Vegas in 2016 that I felt I wanted to get back to it and do the full re-boot/re-write. So I'm slowly working my way through, amending some plot flaws, changing a few names and cutting large chunks of detail and thought processes that slowed it down.

Despite that, I know the series remains flawed - too many characters, convoluted plot, and still too much description (can you imagine how much there was originally!), and I know I'm crap at dialogue. And grammar in places. And no doubt a bunch of other stuff! But this is more an exercise for me to get back to writing and creativity.

I don't know if people are into reading this amount for each episode. But it is what it is, and something is better than nothing - I'm doing it for me, so nyer! I did have one fan previously, which was nice, but the main reason I'm here is to hopefully get a bit more traffic. Fingers crossed.

Any feedback, however harsh, will be very welcomed, and any tips and hints also. (And any writing jobs too, if we're allowed to tout ourselves in such a way!)

Peace and Happy Life

See previous Acts/Recap. To reemphasise, this has been like pulling teeth! But glad I got there. I realised I'd mis-named the Klingon accompanying Lirik and Narli in the previous Act 3 and have amended that now, it should have been Karless not Kluless. I couldn't help a few more tweaks while there.

See previous entries. Editorial note: Apologies, this is a bit of a 'hump' episode I've struggled getting past; and this Act has a dense amount of explanatory dialogue between Lirik and Narli. I hope it doesn't detract too much. Things pick up.
