Boldly Speculating: The Borg

The exact origin of the Borg is a source of great mystery and of speculation of non-canon authors. These accounts, as outlined on Memory Beta, are largely contradictory. Intelligence provided by Erika Hernandez during in the Borg Invasion of 2381 suggest the Borg have a definite point of origin from a crashed and temporally-displaced Caeliar …

Boldly Speculating: The Ancients

Very little is known of the Iconians outside of what was established outside of The Next Generation’s “Contagion” and Deep Space Nine’s “To the Death” but are still a source of fascination for various expanded universe media. The mysterious Iconians relied upon a network of hyperspace gateways that allowed for instantaneous interstellar travel. During their …

Blog Like A Boss Prompt #3: Who is your favorite blogger and why?

To be perfectly candid, I have been a bit lax in my blog reading the last year and a half. From my perusing of the adastra.net blogs, I would have to say I enjoyed jespah’s blog entries the most. For one, I enjoy her commentaries on her own fanon stories, series, and characters. Most of …

Blog Like A Boss Prompt #2: What is the hardest story you ever had to write? What was the easiest? And why?

To start off, what’s the hardest story I had ever had to write? In the grand scheme, I’d say that Star Trek: Lambda Paz “To the Bitter End” was the hardest. This story was meant to tie up many of the loose ends that had built up in several of my previous stories in this …

Blog Like A Boss Prompt #1: What has Star Trek fandom — and ficcing specifically — meant to you?

What has Star Trek fandom meant to me? To answer that question, I’d have to go back to 1991 when I started watching Star Trek: The Next Generation on Saturday nights. That’s what first sparked my interest in the whole science fiction genre. In the interceding years, I have taken an interest in other sci-fi …

First posting for Blog Like A Boss: From the Rodenberry-verse to the Abrams-verse

In preparation for the Star Trek franchise’s 50th anniversary, I hope to soon publish Abrams-verse adaptations of classic Original Series episodes, a project IDW Comics has also undertaken. The biggest challenge, I think, will that with different actors playing these long-time beloved characters, these actors have somewhat different interpretations of the characters. For example, Chris …

Soaring to the Stars

(click on image to view entire animation) It’s not exactly a perfect animated montage, but it’s pretty decent considering GIF Soup froze on me while I was in the process of assembling each frame. It illustrates how humanity soared to the stars, first in rocket propelled space shuttles that could only send manned missions as …

Commentary on “To the Bitter End”

Welcome to my commentary on “To the Bitter End” where it all comes crashing down into an apocalyptic final confrontation. It opens with a look at how the first stone is laid in The Battle of the Three Suns outlined in the Dominion War Sourcebook.  And this is how the folks at Domininon HQ realize …

Mysteries of the Universe

Continuing my series of postings regarding the similarities amongst the various science fiction franchises, we move on to mysteries of the universe. Not the usual philosophical questions about the meaning of life, but more concrete mysteries. Among such mysteries are long-dead civilizations that existed as far back as before our race was born and before …

The Socially Awkward Roundtable

The Star Trek universe has certainly had its fair share of oddball characters. These characters usually took the form of alien observers of human culture—be it Spock on TOS, Data and Worf on TNG, Odo and Quark on DS9, and Tuvok, Seven of Nine, and The Doctor on Voyager. They were sources of comic relief …
