There's a reason both medical and sciences wear blue. Like security and engineering wearing gold.
I think this sums it up....

Re: Shore Leave

As far as I know, Medical and Sciences have always been presented as being seperate departments despite their shared colour, just as Operations/Engineering and Security are seperate despite both being yellow.

Ficitiously yours, Trent Roman

That's what I'm thinking. In that capacity, Ezri probably has more experience than some admirals. Transferring from sciences to command probably sent her on the fast track...

The way I see it is that Starfleet currently has three primary branches but there are divisions within those branches:
COMMAND: Command, Astrogation, General services
OPERATIONS: Operations, Engineering, Security
SCIENCES: Sciences, Medical

I would place anyone wearing blue as coming from sciences--regardless if they're a science officer, a doctor, or a counselor--because they're related fields...

The TV shows have always had three divisions. It was TOS movies that split them further, separating medical and science.

In any case, Dax has done both.

How long are the stories? Roughly like an CoE-novella?
I can answer that one, being that I'm writing "Reservoir Ferengi" in it... 20,000 words, so yeah, novella-length.
I've been meaning to ask, is that the official title? If so would it be ok if I added to the Memory Beta entry.

Re: Shore Leave

Home from Shore Leave; what a blast, as always. If you didn't make it there, you missed out on special releases of both Myriad Universe books and Christopher Bennett's Greater Than the Sum. There was also a nice giveaway for the people who went to the Pocket Books' presentation on Friday night, containing excerpts from Greater Than the Sum, Kobayashi Maru, and Dave Mack's first Destiny book.

See what you miss if you don't go?

So how long before some bootleg copies of those excerpts start showing up? Come on, Shore Leave attendees, boot those legs!

Re: Shore Leave

That sucks. I hate that I missed it but one of these days I will eventually make an appearence myself. I can't wait for the Ship of the Line calendar to come out. Even through I missed this year's, the one for next looks interesting. I have to say that quantum slipstream starship looks kind of interesting. Looks like a smaller ship as well.

At the moment, yes, that's the official title - I originally used the phrase as an email subject line, then when it came time to pick a title I said "cos we'll never get away with that," Marco said we'd stick with that as he liked it...

If you didn't make it there
Thanks so much.

Regretted not being able to go last year, and I talked myself out of planning for it this year... assuming I'd need to give three months notice for long service leave - and of course it turned out to fall in the middle weekend of a two-week term vacation, so I coulda gone without the boss's blessing. Fare woulda been expensive, though.

And now I miss out on the ST Experience as well, 'cos it packs up at the end of August. I was last in the USA way back in January 1992 - DS9 was announced in the newspapers on my last morning in Hawaii. How time flies. Never been to Shore Leave - and I really didn't think it would be so long before my next trip. Sigh...

Re: Shore Leave

One day, possibly next year, I will make my presence known at Shore Leave...because I'm insanely jealous of all who went and of the awesomeness of the event.

Re: Shore Leave

I just posted in the upcoming schedule thread -- it answers some of the questions posed here.

And what Jim said -- Shore Leave rocked this year.

Re: Shore Leave

You're not the only one. I've been wanting to go for years now, but it keeps sneaking up on me before I have a chance to actually make any plans to go. And there's the fact that I've never traveled alone before, so that also makes me kinda nervous.
