Announcing: Deep Space Nine Season 10!
 
Hi all

This is my first Fan Fic project, and it's a pretty massive one, so I hope you'll indulge me, and I hope you enjoy!

Some of you may know, I have previously made a project out of adapting all the existing DS9 relaunch novels into screenplays, as if they were seasons 8 and 9 of the show. 26 episodes from Avatar to Unity (season 8), and 24 episodes from Unjoined to The Soul Key (season 9).

Now that the DS9-R seems to have fizzled out and people are wanting to know what happened between The Soul Key and Rough Beasts of Empire, I decided to come up with my own stories to fill the gap. Another whole 22 episodes, hence "season 10." The stories are written in screenplay form, as if they really were TV show scripts, each episode approx 60 pages. So it's a big investment, both by me as a writer and by you as a reader. Also, since it's so big, it's impractical to post the entire text onto the board, so I've formatted each episode as a PDF to download and store if you want.

During these 22 episodes, I plan on answering many of the questions TrekLit readers in general, and DS9-R readers in particular, have had ever since The Soul Key. Answers to what happened with the Dominion, the Ascendants, Dax's transfer, and lots more. Timeline-wise, episode one picks up right after the last page of The Soul Key, and by season end, we will be up to the beginning of TNG's A Time to... series.

The first six episodes are written, and I am now ready to begin uploading for everyone to read. I really want to generate discussion with this, as if they really were new episodes of the show. I'm hoping to get TrekLit board folks over here to join in too.

Download episode 10x01 "Emancipation" right here: 10x01 "Emancipation"

Enjoy!

I'm interested too. No telling when Pocket will give us a couple of books to explain the big gap we have between those novels.

Thanks for the interest, guys. The first ep is right there for you now, and I was planning on uploading a new one per month. Have to give myself time to write the rest of them!

Sorry, I hadn't uploaded the scripts for season 8 and 9, since I felt that would be rude to the original authors of the novels upon which they were based. It would effectively be giving away their books for free, and I didn't feel comfortable doing that. I did them mostly for my own entertainment and to learn the craft.

Since I'm now doing purely my own ideas (albeit based on what I strongly suspect some of the authors' and editors' plans might have been), I'm now free to upload.

Unless some author gives me leave to make the earlier scripts available, or someone can convince me it's alright to do so, I'd rather not do that just yet.

Any chances for an epub format? Reading from a computer screen is not that great and reading a pdf from eReader is even worse (tiny font).

To which my only response is "Buh?"

Since I have no idea what that even is, I'm going to have to say no. Unless it's something really simple that you can talk me through, then I'd be happy to.

epub is the format that many eReaders and Adobe Digital Editions soft use .

But never mind, I found an online converter http://ebook.online-convert.com/convert-to-epub .

So... has anybody actually read it yet?

:whistle:

I started today and I'm on page 45. As someone used to stories with traditional narration, the format feels a bit strange to me, but maybe I'll get used to it.

As for the plot, still not many things revealed, but it got me interested :)

It's kind of a slow start, I know. My plan was more to tie up some of the loose ends from the previous "season finale" (The Soul Key, part 2, aka 9x24 "Ha'mara"), plant a few seeds now and watch them grow over the course of the season. Things definitely get bigger in later episodes.

Sorry if I'm being antsy, just I want to know what people think!

Just downloaded it and started to read it alittle. Will check read more later but its good so far. Feels like a novel and an episode together.

I finished episode 1 and I'm looking forward to more, especially since you left some cliffhangers ;)

Thanks! Any specific comments? I just kind of want to know what people liked and didn't like, and if there's anything I need to work on.

And how often do you want new installments? Is one a month about right? Bearing in mind I've only got six written so far...
