Re: TOS Series Lexington: Meet The Lady

Thanks guys, I'm glad you enjoyed this. Like I said, my first priority is with my Sutherland series, but I have some interesting things lined up for The Lady and her crew. A few hints: Klingons...Mogatu...Klingons...

cmdrxeris: I'm sorry you don't like the Sutherland series, but, I guess, different strokes for different folks. I am curious though as to what you don't like about it. Is it the writing? Characters? Setting? Story arcs? Please feel free to PM me with your views--I promise I don't bite.

Gibraltar: As to Jim Kirk and Wesley being friends--I recalled reading a novel discussing their friendship while Kirk was a younger officer and decided to go with that. Of course, I could be mistaken. In any event, I kind of see their relationship, at least at first, as being more of a mentoring one.

CeJay: Yes, it is a tried but true format for introductory stories. To be honest, this has been sitting on my hard drive for over a year so I decided to go with it. I do look to capture some of that good ol' TOS feel, while at the same time maintaining a sense of 'realism'. But yes, I do have some...interesting...plot twists for the characters. I dropped a real big hint as to one possible character plot twist...I'll let you all try to suss it out...

I called the Saladin class ships destroyers because that's how they're most often designated by the various sources I've run across and for simplicity's sake I decided to keep with that terminology. Also, their purpose is primarily patrol ops and not deep space exploration. The TOS 'verse actually does possess more of a military feel than TNG.

Miranda class vessels were actually introduced at about the same time as the Connies and serve a function similar to that of Nebulas with respect to Galaxies. Like the Connies, they were upgraded quite frequently throughout their service lives.

Again, I'm glad everyone's enjoying the story!
USS Sutherland, Lexington, Gibraltar, Bluefin, Independence, Dauntless, Eagle, Dark Territory all dock here
