    Hi all

    You may (or may not) remember my DS9 Season 10 fan-fiction project of a couple of years ago. It was designed to continue some of the story threads that were left dangling from the licensed DS9-R post-finale novels when that series petered out in 2009, following the publication of The Soul Key.

    So many story threads had seemed abandoned, with tantalising hints of where they might go, and so many readers (myself among them) were asking "What happened next?" that I decided to answer the question for myself.

    The project took the form of 22 episode-length screenplays (the stories were done in that format because the project was preceded by me adapting the existing novels into screenplay format as seasons 8 and 9, and I simply wanted to continue in that vein).

    The story picked up right after The Soul Key, and filled in many aspects of the missing DS9 story, including Dax's transfer, what happened to the Dominion, some Section 31 shenanigans and, most importantly, the long-teased Ascendant conflict.

    When I wrote season 10, it was intended to be the be-all-and-end-all. I had no intentions of writing anything else. But inevitably I found myself asking once again, “What happened next?” With later novels returning to the DS9 milieu and dropping more tantalising hints about what had happened in the meantime, I had plenty of story threads to tease out and explore. So was born… DS9 Season 11.

    Another 22 episodes following directly on from what happened in season 10, and filling in even more of the missing time from the DS9 stories. To help you to place it in the Star Trek universe, this season takes place simultaneously with TNG’s A Time to… series, and in the year before the events of the Destiny trilogy.

    In fact there are hints that the official DS9 novels may be returning to the Ascendant storyline themselves in the near future, and rather mercenarily, I wanted to make sure my own stories were out there first.

    I will start uploading the new stories (on screen, and as downloadable pdfs and ebooks) in the next couple of weeks. This post is basically here to serve as an announcement and a "Previously On…”

    All the links to the season 10 stories are below, if you would like to read (or re-read) them. If you want my advice, I would suggest that you re-read the last three episodes (“In the Stars”, “Into the Fire” and “Ascension”), which form a season-ending three-parter, as I will be following up pretty closely on events from all three. Or if you’re pressed for time, just the season finale will do.

    Thanks in advance for your patronage!

    There are times when a person realizes that they have crossed in to the company of professionals. This is one those times. Here I am playing around with my story thinking 'hey this is rolling pretty good.' Only to realize wow, some of these guys are professional authors.

    Somehow I suddenly feel less than adequate. Lol

    I am already checking out season 10.

    Interesting. I like it. Is it possible to get a look at the previous seasons before ten? Keep up the great work, sir and/or ma'am.

    It's sir :)

    Seasons 8 and 9 are just adaptations of the existing novels. Season 8 was Avatar to Unity (the parasites arc) and Season 9 was Unjoined to The Soul Key (the WoDS9/Iliana arc). So if you've read those books, then you already know what happens (except for a couple of minor tweaks and some necessary editing).

    I was never comfortable uploading my adaptations freely, because that would basically be giving away those professional authors' works for free, and I don't want to get in trouble for piracy. But I suppose at the same time, if you have already bought those books, then the authors' have already got their money. PM me directly and we can discuss it.

    What I can tell you though is how the seasons lay out. Season 8 came to 26 eps (the ST standard), and Season 9 had 24 (ST:ENT was going shorter towards the end). Seasons 10 and 11 both have 22 (the industry standard for everyone except ST).

    But here's the TV Guide for 8 and 9:

    Out of interest do you include characters not associated with DS9 or do you try and avoid crossovers?

    From seasons 8 and 9, the episodes "Cold Fusion", "Lost Time" and "Wounds" include characters from the Corps of Engineers series, because they are based on stories from that series. I explicitly wrote out the crossover elements of "Divided We Fall" from the original comic book series.

    In seasons 10 and 11, I don't have any major series crossovers, but I do make use of characters that are more general Star Trek 24th century people who don't belong to any one series, for example Admiral Akaar.

    Mostly it's just the established DS9 characters though, from both TV and print.
