Re: Star Trek: Sigils and Unions--The Thirteenth Order

Oh, I'm obviously so smart that I can outmaneuver myself whilst standing still. A rare feat.

I knew that there was something familiar about that name, maybe its his late uncle from Korta II...

(BTW, my preceding sentence above is a shout out to a famous American author, can anyone guess who?)

The planet is Kora II--but yes...it's a reference to Harris Yulin, who played Marritza. He did so well I felt he should get a tribute, even though it was a walk-on role.

Re: Star Trek: Sigils and Unions--The Thirteenth Order

I see I have a lot of catching up

Just read the first part and enjoyed it. I always liked Macet and it's great that he returns both in "official" novels and fan-fics.

I liked Spirodopoulos's interaction with the kid...but I'm not convinced Starfleet's as against religious references as you may let on, Nerys. After all, Chakotay was completely comfortable with discussing his beliefs with others on Voyager....

That being said, it was a wonderful scene.

Also, a nice touch, Macet's headaches--and possible asthma. It's a tribute to his strength, I must say, that he can overcome this "weakness" and command men despite it.

Daro's thoughtfull reflection is also good--slowly paced, though that is very much the mark of a patient, quiet professor-type.

Looking forward to what is in store for the funeral.

Re: Star Trek: Sigils and Unions--The Thirteenth Order

Agreed on the Daro analysis there RL. As a quiet man myself (who has been compared to George Harrison, the quiet Beatle, at least in terms of personalty and vague similarity of looks), I have always found Glinn Daro's reserve and understatement to be a refreshing change to the blustering egomanics of the Central Command.

Prehaps I should have called myself Thor Daro

Why that is, is a whole other discussion and not one I want to have here.

That being said, it was a wonderful scene.

Also, a nice touch, Macet's headaches--and possible asthma. It's a tribute to his strength, I must say, that he can overcome this "weakness" and command men despite it.
Thanks. It's not normally as pronounced as it got when he was about to rebel, but it definitely affected him.

Daro's thoughtfull reflection is also good--slowly paced, though that is very much the mark of a patient, quiet professor-type.
That's definitely how I see Daro, and how he came off onscreen.

Looking forward to what is in store for the funeral.
Thanks!

If I ever get round to writing the History of Cardassia in the mid to late 24th century then I'll use that very title.

{satire}Of course, with a slight change in the wording, it could work of a history of any Earth Nation{satire}

Hey! I DID have The Desolate Vigil to finish, and I got it done.

Re: Star Trek: Sigils and Unions--The Thirteenth Order

Ah, but as good as the Desolate Vigil was (and it was superb) I believe this work of fiction is equal or better than the alphabet soup of the Great Science Fiction Writers(TM) Asimov, Bradbury, Clarke.

If you put this much effort into a piece of original fiction, I guarantee that it would be an international bestseller before you could blink.

Re: Star Trek: Sigils and Unions--The Thirteenth Order

The one thing this has in its favor is length...but honestly, it's not hard sci-fi like those guys. I have no idea if I will ever get a truly publishable original idea (and salable is a whole other question), but I thank you for your kind words, and for reading.
