Author’s Commentary: The Better Part of Valor

I realize it might seem strange to do a flashback story so early on in the series, but I felt like it was important to show how Leone and Ariel were before they got to Farragut.  Which is to say, not a whole lot different, but I think this episode shows Leone in a different …

Author’s Commentary: Eternal Midnight

One of the aspects of Full Speed Ahead that I worked really hard to illustrate, was the relationship between the officers and enlisted aboard Farragut.  We got to see this more often than not in Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, however, I always felt that Chief O’Brien was a de facto commissioned officer, from the …

Introducing Star Trek: Linear

In my WIP post from12 February, I spoke a little on the subject of this project that keeps kind of creeping up on me.  I had some time to take a look at some of the logistics of doing a story where the central plot takes place on a planet-based colony rather than on a …

Parts I, II, and III.   It’s also the first episode where we get to know the entire crew and not just the Leone-loyal team of …

Kudos to anyone who recognizes the famous first line of this blog post.  But last night before I reported in for work, Sam Redfeather and I had a chance to polish off the last bit of The Chains of Error and I wanted to write on my feelings about this endeavor.  Sam hasn’t had a …

Ariel Must Die

Not too long ago in the crossover novel The Chains of Error (with Sam Redfeather’s Gibraltar), a number of people were a little surprised to read that Ariel Elannis died in the line of duty while trying to bring the evil Colonel Galmesh to justice.  I wanted to spend a little time talking about what …

Change Over

Due to the demise of my Full Speed Ahead site, I’ve decided that since I have multiple series ongoing right now, I would collate all of them into one site.  And as I tend to think of writing as an adventure one needs to approach with all due haste, I’ve named this blog for the …
