My Lexington series takes place during the TOS era and is a sister series of the Sutherland series and is also part of the United Trek continuity. Here we meet Liz Shelby's maternal grandparents: Commodore Robert Wesley and Ensign Aliz Bathory. We also meet a young Lieutenant Morgan Bateson, later on in the series, along with what I hope people will think are some very fun characters. One of the more difficult issues to resolve was dealing with the sexism of the period during which the old series aired in which you did not see female captains. The easy way would be to just ignore it and go ahead and put in female captains from the beginning on Constitution class starships. But I wanted to try something different. I went under the assumption that shortly after the Four Years War (I'm not including Discovery in my canon at this time), a cabal of extremely conservative admirals coming mostly from worlds and colonies that were strongly male dominated managed to get effective control over who got promoted to ship commands and as a result, women captains were rare during this brief, really twenty year or so period, and when they captain ships, they were relegated to destroyers and smaller ships. It wasn't until TheLoneRedshirt's character, Grace McAfee before women were able to break that iron ceiling. After that, the floodgates open as captains such as Marietta DeVeers and, eventually, Cilla Oudekirk, whom you'll meet here as a lieutenant, rise to the captaincy of major starships. The first story in the series is called Meet the Lady after the nickname the commodore and crew give the Lexington. I hope everyone enjoys this series and a little return to the days of the old TOS.
