Summary: Past Featured Story

Hello everyone. With the discussion forum down and not all of us having our Ad Astra blogs up and going I thought I would try to create a little round robin story where we can all post a little response to my posited ‘How do we cope when technology fails?' prompt.

 

Our heroes would have to tackle Star Trek life without the magic of their technology - say no transporters, no replicators, no grav-plates, no warp power, etc. Maybe they find themselves in a crutch, maybe it ends up with some hilarious or fish out of water moments, or puts their lives in mortal peril. Have at it. Remember to keep it clean given the K rating and that this is just for fun to help us while over the absence of the forum.

Just post your prompt response as a new chapter and sign your name to the ‘chapter' you write. Well that's the plan. Fingers crossed as to whether this works! Remember, just write it, don't edit it to death - for this one time on the archive! ;)

Summary: This is the official Series bible for Star Trek: War Aftermath. Note that this series borrows from elements of post-series DS9 novels. While this series does not fully follow characters and events depicted in the Pocket Books novels, passing references to some of those events are alluded to in the narratives. Each chapter will outline those events, citing the appropriate points while additional and/or contradictory events in my fanon universe will be cited separately.

Summary:

Vulcan has been a member of the Federation for a very long time, but it seems that there have not been many points where anyone has questioned their ways. This is an argument between a pro-Vulcan and a per say "anti" Vulcan.

This is not a story in the traditional sense. It's written like posts in a forum.

Summary:

In the Cardassian Union, there is only one verdict: guilty, and from archon to conservator to nestor to condemned, everyone knows the role they play.  No mercy--no mistakes--or so the party line goes.

Yet there remains a faint echo of the past--and in the system another version of Skrain Dukat hoped to serve, a compelling picture of what could have been.

Read on to learn the history and divergent futures of the Cardassian justice system.

Summary:

In a galaxy of many great wonders and greater powers, faith has sometimes been dismissed as the province of children and fools. How might rational individuals like Mike Spirodopoulos and SigCat AU residents Skrain Dukat and Hirhul Mendral maintain their belief when faced with all of the various powers and principalities of the Trekiverse?<p>

This is one exploration of how it could be, as seen through the lens of the Sigils and Unions universes.</p>

Summary:

Go beyond the Universal Translator to read--and hear--about the Cardassian language designed by Nerys Ghemor for Sigils and Unions and its subseries, Catacombs of Oralius.

Written from a largely in-universe perspective, lessons will be added as I find time to write explanations and record the accompanying audio (which is hosted here on the Ad Astra forum--please note that you must be a registered member of the forum in good standing to hear the audio!).

And your first lesson: Kiba'avzayn ta'aboun-cor means "good tidings from friends" in Federation Standard.

Publicly-available grammatical work has ENDED.  While I will continue to leave the existing material available, the fact that the language is now being adopted by others outside the Sigils and Unions universe has led me to keep all actual grammatical information to myself so that I am the only one who can generate authentic words and phrases.
