Re: What are your "Myriad Universe" ideas?

I wrote a short story about a scenario where Picard had never actually left the Nexus. His entire adventure with Kirk was fake (Kirk actually did die on the Enterprise-B), and the Ent-D and all her crew were really dead. In his old age he is pulled out of the Nexus by Starfleet and learns the truth. Because of his Irumodic syndrome (from "All Good Things...") he is faced with trying to come to terms with whether this is real, or if his mind is playing tricks on him. (And because this is a Myriad Universe concept, it turns out to be the truth.)

However, since I'm not an established writer, I doubt I'd be able to get it published.

What if Jonathan Archer had indeed died saving Earth from the Xindi superweapon?

What if Starfleet Command had given the U.S.S. Enterprise different orders in 2254 and as a result Christopher Pike never encountered the Talosians?


What if John Harriman had, for some minor maintenance issue, ordered the maiden voyage of the U.S.S. Enterprise-B to be delayed by just one day?

What if the Seventy-Fifth Rule never attacked the U.S.S. Stargazer at Maxia Zeta?

What if the Caretaker's displacement wave hit the U.S.S. Voyager at a different angle and as a result, Voyager's medical staff survived?

I am intrigued by the top two, given that if archer died on the xindi weapon the federation would not be how it should be and the obvious being as in the second point if starfleet command was a different organisation and were not so sure about certain first contacts, first 2 points would be great in a full out story

Except Starfleet didn't send the Enterprise to Talos IV, they went there in response to an old distress call.

What if the romulans had won the war and formed an alliance with the cardassians, breen and the bajorans

^Which war? The Dominion war? Because I can't see the Bajorans allying with the Romulans at that point in time.

Re: What are your "Myriad Universe" ideas?

The earth/romulan war, basically the romulans won that war, archer died on the xindi weapon, alas the federation as we know was not born, a different one in its place came to be, the bajorans from this point are all about war, so for the romulans to show who has power they group themselves with cardassians, breen and bajorans

Re: What are your "Myriad Universe" ideas?

I'd like to read the history of the "Shockwave" alternate future, where Archer vanished mysteriously in 2151 and by the 31st century, an Earth that never founded the Federation was in ruins.

Wrong era. The Romulans didn't know of any of those species in the 22nd century and warp wasn't that good.

Gul Dukat and his ship disappear in the Badlands, so Defiant is sent to investigate. Both Dukat's ship and Defiant end up in the Delta Quadrant courtesy of The Caretaker and Sisko must forge an alliance with the Cardassians.

Kirk and Spock fail to prevent Dr. McCoy from saving Edith Keeler and are trapped in the 20th century permanently.
