Re: Star Trek: Full Speed Ahead

Wow, thanks, CeJay. You know, Star Eagle is how I found out about United Trek

As for Ariel, well, it's hard being a half human half Orion officer serving on a starship, isn't it? But she is a lot of fun to write and given the fact that Trek seemed to gloss over a lot of the more basic aspects of humanity in order to present a more hopeful future, I always felt that there was more going on behind the scenes than what 40-42 minutes of airtime could show us.

Besides, a race of enlightened humans wouldn't discount their sexuality or hide it away, or be embarrassed by it. I think they'd use it as another weapon in their arsenal. That's just my interpretation.

And I think it makes for some good entertainment, too
