Re: Cover for TOS: The More things change

With only three days until its release, I realize I should have posted something like this earlier. But here's a slightly more detailed synopsis that could go on the back cover if it weren't an eBook.

"When Dr. Christine Chapel and Spock have to evacuate Audrid Dax from the Enterprise due to a medical emergency, Chapel is frustrated by Trill customs that don't allow her to treat her patient. Chapel finds herself questioning her long-term plans while also dealing with Spock's changing personality following his mind meld with V'ger. Soon, however, they have bigger problems when an unidentified vessel ambushes their shuttlecraft. They are forced into a dangerous cat-and-mouse game to evade their attacker long enough to get Dax to the Trill doctors who can save her life. Along the way, Chapel discovers much about herself, Spock, and the secrets of the Trill."

Re: Cover for TOS: The More things change

I'm a huge continuity nerd (as if the link in my signature didn't give it away) so I'm curious - do you stick to Christopher's post-TMP continuity or go your own way, and are there any references?

Either way, it should be interesting to see someone else tackle Spock's post-TMP personality shift.

Oh wow that sounds really good! Hitting lots of fanboy buttons there for me. Now if McCoy could just meet Audrid...

That was depicted in The Lives of Dax.

Re: Cover for TOS: The More things change

I think you're thinking of McCoy and Emony in Mike Friedman's story. The Audrid story featured Pike.

Re: Cover for TOS: The More things change

Yes, it was Emony and McCoy that were involved, which is why I think it would be cool for Audrid to meet McCoy.
I did like McCoy's reaction to learning about the Dax symbiote and her past lives, including memories of life as a male. One of the better uses of the Trill symbiotes as metaphor for being transgender.

My goal was to not break any Ex Machina continuity outright, but maybe bend things a little bit to give my story room to go its own way. At this point, I've kind of lost track, so I'm counting on continuity nerds like yourself to figure out what I did and then come up with retcons to fix it! I didn't want to write mine in a way that required people to have read Christopher's, so there's only a small reference that I intended as a callback to a specific scene in Machina.

It was fun to extrapolate the impact on the Chapel/Spock dynamic. I was playing off a scene from Machina and then turning it up to eleven, if you will. But this is very much Chapel's story, so it's more about her growth and how that affects her reaction to Spock's changes.

Don't worry, I just had to work in a scene with McCoy and Audrid together.

I wanted to maintain continuity with The Lives of Dax—there are some specific references to that—as well as Christopher's post-TMP work, but the timeline has gotten rather intricate there, so I'm just hoping it's close enough for Federation work . . .

Re: Cover for TOS: The More things change

I should warn everyone that I retconned the shuttlecraft Copernicus, which we didn't see until the Enterprise-A, back onto the refit Enterprise. Because reasons. Discuss. I will take lashings with a carp as needed.
