Brit, I really liked the short fic you put up here. It's really good and actually is inspiring me to post an excerpt from one of my fics, a Voyager Lower Decks type fic as well, before I post the actual fic.

Re: Voyager fanfics and creations

Dingo, I am very glad you liked it. My daughter is my tech expert lol, so this is part her story. We've been talking about writing a series of fics one generation ahead just as NG was a generation ahead of TOS.

Our idea is that so many of the admirals and captains would have been molded by The Dominion War and probably be rather conservative. Janeway and her crew would have been influenced by the Delta Quadrant and the individual thinking necessary to survive there. With Voyager's crew working in the Academy, shaping the next generation there could easily conflict with the older one.

I wasn't able to edit my previous post because the option didn't show. I request that this post be merged with my previous post in this section.

As promised, I've posted the first installment of my fanfiction for everyone's enjoyment. I apologize if it starts off a bit slow. I'll post a little more of the story tonight.

Here's a link to the Star Trek: Expanded Universe wikia entry I've written on my fic, Dark Realm.

I could use some photo-shop help with some of my original characters though. Can someone oblige?

Re: Voyager fanfics and creations

Hey Brit - would like to see you expand on your ficlet. My major obstacle to creating palatable fanfic is my dearth of scientific knowledge. (it occupies about .000001% my brain . . .) It seems felicitous to have a writing partner who has a similar bent and vision and an inclination toward science!

Re: Voyager fanfics and creations

Thanks oldstredshrtevr, and one of the advantages of having someone close that shares a love is the ability to verbalize and to expand on "what if" before a word hits paper. My daughter has a degree in biology and several hours toward a masters in neurobiology, it's not unusual to hear her say "the science is glitchy!" be it series episode or fan fiction.

The idea here is basically the same one that spawned "Next Generation". I believe that to truly get it right, Pocket Books and Paramount really don't need to look backward but forward. A good example is the villains of "Trek", if you will look at TOS, and NG-DS9-Voyager, the best villains have been "what scared us" in other words the conflict needs to be related to the audience.

So, today I think that the conflict needs to reflect some of the problems in the Middle East rather than another Borg story as those have been done to death. You also need a bridge like you had McCoy, Scotty, and Spock in Next Generation, you need the characters that we have grown to love to set the stable background but allow new characters to explore a different aspect of our galaxy.

So our idea is to have a "Starfleet" in conflict with its self, a generation of older officers influenced by the Dominion War, and a younger group ready to break out of what probably is restrictive ideas from people influenced by that war. So you build a new Enterprise, with "Slip Stream" capabilities, you people it with old friends and even old enemies (how about a Cardassian engineer), and you finally explore the race that Roddenberry wanted to, but didn't have the budget, you explore the Romulans.

There wasn't a link, it was a description of a fiction I've been working on (it's a long one), but I lost my nerve to share it and deleted my post ... however if you were interested in an expanded universe type thing featuring Icheb as First Officer of a huge mission back to the DQ, that's what I'm writing. I haven't posted it anywhere yet due to aforementioned lack of nerve.

I have a warm fuzzy place in my heart for Icheb and have enjoyed seeing him attend Starfleet academy in the relaunch but unfortunately he doesn't get too much face time (on paper) so I'd love to read it. I'm sure others feel the same way. I posted a tiny ficlet and got some very kind feedback. I think posters on the Voyager threads tend to be a kinder gentler lot. You should give it a whack!
