Omega? Interesting. Not sure I trust these Tyndora, though. Keep up the good work.

Re: Star Trek: Tesseract

Nice to see Icheb and Maren at least being civil to one another. Working together without drama is a good start... baby steps.

And now we see what will be the first of what I presume to be a great many First Contacts for the Tesseract. Here's hoping everyone minds their manners.

Very interesting these Tyndora, I wonder how things are going to go during their talks.

Also I like how Icheb and Maren finally broke the ice a little more. Maybe next time they won't be so... hostile, towards each other. :3

Re: Star Trek: Tesseract

Another great chapter - an intriguing addition to the 'Mystery of the Destroyed Borg' and a new race to meet and greet. I couldn't tell from the chapter whether that second section is happening much later: I hope Icheb has had time to regenerate before he starts to go looney tunes!

Also, great work on the Icheb and Maren relationship, really realistic and well written. Can't wait for the next installment

Nope, same time. No rest for the weary. Anybody else could probably handle it, but Icheb in his present condition is not like anybody else. Unfortunately, only one other person and a hologram have any idea about that.

Also, great work on the Icheb and Maren relationship, really realistic and well written. Can't wait for the next installment
Thanks!

Re: Star Trek: Tesseract

Ouch! He's going to be suffering... I like it!

Ooh, mysterious! Can't wait to find out exactly what is going on with him.

When can we have more? please ma'am, some more?

I was wondering, actually, whether I could pick your brains on a writing query? How much do you have planned out on this in advance?

Oh, and you're welcome, it really is good solid writing! Keep it coming!

Re: Star Trek: Tesseract

Yes, remember DS9 and "O'Brien must suffer?" This is "Icheb must suffer." (Just kidding ... well, kind of. )

Re: writing: There's a thread in this forum called "Starting Points" where a bunch of us discussed our writing processes (which are widely variant). You should check it out. I'm probably the most organized of the bunch (mostly to compensate for lack of raw storytelling talent, or at least my total inexperience with fiction writing!). I have an overall arc already planned and written in outline form. Little things may change from their original intention here or there as the story develops (at which point I update my outline to reflect the changes), but the outline is my lifeline. If I forget where I'm going, it's like a map. It also helps me not to drop loose ends.

Others in this forum just write as things come to them and it somehow all works out beautifully. These people are the gifted ones! I would end up with an incomprehensible mess if I tried that!

Seriously, "Starting Points" -- check it out.

Thanks for that, I've checked it out and posted my two cents on how I work. You'll see, I fall somewhere between the two extremes.

Well, can't wait for the next Tesseract installment!

Hey there Kes7. Another great chapter. I've been looking forward to seeing the Captain interact with DQ species. And what will the Admiral have to say?...

Well, like the Vampire girl, Claudia, Oliver Twist, and the Borg, I want more!...

Thanks again Kes.

Thank you, Diogenes!

ETA They're not quite in the DQ yet. I'm working on the assumption that there are presumably still species in the outer reaches of the AQ that we don't know about yet. Space is pretty big.

Re: Star Trek: Tesseract

This is perhaps one of those times when you think that flying around in ship that looks like a Borg cube might not such a good idea after all. Nobody thought that it might lead to problems taking that thing into the Delta Quadrant? Really?

Personally, I don't think Starfleet should be in the business of trying to intimidate anyone, if that's what the designers were thinking here.

But I admit it does lead to some interesting misunderstandings and conflicts. And if there really are some Borg hunters out there, those conflcts could become rather tricky for our good folks on the Tesseract.

Don't mind my criticism too much. I enjoyed this chapter.

That's too bad.

I had a chance to glance over your reply earlier and before you deleted it and clearly you had given this particular issue plenty of thought.

Re: Star Trek: Tesseract

Yes, but I think most of it will be revealed in the story at some point, so I hate to infodump in the thread when it will probably be rehashed eventually. Sorry about that. I have no filter between brain and keys sometimes, so I massively abuse the edit button. If you want to read it again, I could PM it to you (I saved it). Or if you think I should put it back up here, maybe I will ... I just hate to give too much away up front.

( <---- that's me, rolling my eyes at myself for being such a spaz.)

Re: Star Trek: Tesseract

I don't think you should've deleted it but if you eventually explain things through the story itself then I glaldy wait until it is addressed that way.
