Bio: Having only recently been able to find the time to reconnect with the Trek universe I love, I was not at all sure how to refresh my bio. I finally settled on the following:

I won’t tell you how old I am, but I was 15 when the Enterprise streaked across America’s TV screens for the first time ever. I have two sons, two daughters-in-law, one grandson (a just turned thirteen gamer), and two granddaughters (along with them comes one steady boyfriend and one soon-to-be grandson-in-law).

Previous to Katrina, I made a decent supplemental living painting murals. Now my day job is forensic accounting related to claims adjusting. Most people think that juxtaposition is weird – go figure. My sons have been instructed that if I ever come up missing they should call Pixar Studios and ask for the doughnut trolley lady. (I would actually pay those people to let me peer over their shoulders while they work their magic.)

I have lived in a little hamlet about 80 miles north of New Orleans for more than 20 years - which is why reference to south Louisiana is a thread that runs through most of my stories - and is fitting, because my favorite character, the much misunderstood and often underestimated Christine Chapel, was born in New Orleans.

Other than Unsung Heroes (a collaboration with Sam Pengraff and into which I still managed a reference to New Orleans) my stories are all TOS - my first Trek love.

Alas, it has been another long hiatus in writing, not to mention posting stories, and I hope to post a revised story soon, with more to come later.

Meanwhile, I am grateful for the comments and reviews of my older stories. They inspired and encouraged me to set out on the journey and boldly go forward into the future once again.

In the spirit of fun and adventure I humbly extend a challenge to the many fine writers of Ad Astra: Write a story that is within the universe of Unsung Heroes. It’s a round robin event organized as an open series meaning that you can post your own stories to the series, the various stories adding together like the chapters of a book. Prequel, sequel, TNG mirror universe – the galaxy’s the limit!

The instructions are simple. Read Star Trek HQ first and then come up with your own story that plays within the same ‘virtual sandbox’. Some good ideas for additional stories might be: ‘What did Amy do next?’, or, ‘What happened to Doctor Dunmore when he returned to Starfleet Command?’

And what of our new enemy? Although little is known about him, his powers of creation and destruction are very real. Originating from an entirely new faction of the Borg, it appears that the collective has changed its views on the importance and role of the individual. Can this Borg Homunculus – this drone that is not a drone – spawn entire new cubes faster than Starfleet can scream retreat?

If you send an email to and request The Unsung Heroes Technical Guide I’ll send you some important information on how the technology that tried to save Commander Worf worked. Your story does not need to use any of this technology – it’s available merely as technical backstory that you might find useful.

I hope it’s as much fun for you as it has been for me!

Summary: The HMS Bounty crew has saved the Earth, but has returned to a planet in crisis mode. The weather has cleared, but the aftermath is still being addressed. Rescue efforts and planet-wide remediation take precedence over gratitude and ‘welcome-homes’ in the hours and days before Kirk, McCoy, Scott, Uhura, Sulu and Chekov face the charges against them.
