So I had an idea for a Star Trek fic. Big whoop. I have about as many of those as I have dirty dishes on my desk. But this one is a bit unique, so I thought I'd share it with anyone willing to listen. First of all, it's only set in the Star Trek universe, featuring no characters established in other Trek works. Second of all, it's a very slice-of-life, fluffy type of story, no high adventure whatsoever. I know, blah, but it can't all be pew-pew space battles and exotic aliens. Let me give you a rundown of what I have figured out so far. It has a brief prologue, and/or series of flashbacks, taking place shortly after the foundation of the Coalition of Planets. Sebak, a gawky young staffer, and Liss Canaan, a snarky security guard, have a sweet little office romance. The thing is, they both work at the newly-constructed Vulcan embassy on Andoria. He's a Vulcan. She's an Andorian. People stare. Their relationship progresses regardless, they marry, and, with a little (read: a lot) of medical assistance, they have a child. They both agree that a half-Vulcan, half-Andorian child would have a ton of adversity growing up on either of their home planets, so they move to a more neutral territory: Earth. It's not perfect, but it's the closest thing. Fast forward fifteen years, to where their son, T'Pakra Canaan, is in high school. The bulk of the story focuses on how T'Pakra, known to his few friends as Tip, gets by in a world that, at the very least, looks at him funny. He also has to undergo regular treatments to help him live with his various genetic defects, and treat the complications from surgeries that tried to. I haven't come up with major plot events, but I'll post events, ideas, and additional characters and character details.
