    What if the characters of Evangelion inhabited the world of Star Trek? And not only that, what if it was written like a Star Trek series?

    Those two basic ideas are the driving force behind this script-fic.

    If you've been following along in my thread over in the fanart forum (https://www.trekbbs.com/threads/firebirds-sketch-of-the-week-series.307901/), nearly one year ago, I had the sudden idea to do a drawing that combined two of my favorite franchises, Star Trek and Evangelion. At the time, I thought it would be a one-and-done idea, but as it turned out, I was incredibly wrong. Over the next few months, I started doing more and more drawings that put Eva's characters into Trek's 24th Century. This ultimately drove me to start brainstorming ideas about how I could fully integrate them into a story. This would be the first time I've ever attempted writing fanfic, after reading reams and reams of Eva fics and being inspired by Genocide, Advice and Trust, and Yui's Words, in particular.

    By last fall, I started developing this crossover as a full-fledged series. As I'm a bit of a screenwriting nerd and an amateur screenwriter, I decided to test my skills to see if I could make this work as a script. By the start of this year, I'd completed the first draft pilot episode script and a complete writer's guide/bible, codifying my ideas into one source. In the spring, I worked on developing the story over the arc of the series, while beginning to outline and write the first few episodes.

    Below is the final revised PDF "shooting script" of EVA-Trek's pilot episode, "New Way Home." As I've said, I'm taking the screenwriting format seriously, so I've tried to format and write this as close to how the writers on The Next Generation and Deep Space Nine did their scripts in the 90's.

    I hope everyone enjoys the first "episode." The goal will be to release a new script each month of the 26-episode "season," ending with a two-hour finale.

    Also, since I've got a huge backlog of concept art and "scenes" from assorted episodes I've drawn over the last year, I'll be posting some along with each script. Here's the batch for the pilot:

    And here's episode 2 of EVA-Trek, "Enough Space."

    Stardate 48344.2: In the aftermath of the first angel's attack, Shinji recovers and starts to get settled in onboard the USS Nerv. Meanwhile, Misato has to deal with an old acquaintance in the final preparations for the Nerv's launch from Earth.
