Captain's Log, Stardate 092218 Without so much as an echo on the scanners, neither the First Officer nor our Science Officer will offer their opinion on the ghost ship sighting. But I am certain enough that I am adding it here, to my own official records. I don't use a superstitious term such as "ghost … Continue reading The Enemy Without…

Captain's Log, Stardate 091518 We've arrived at the edges of Federation space, transiting through the Dakotas into Northern Minnesota. It is a strange sight to watch the last of the stars slip off the bow and then stare into a featureless void.

Captain's Log, Stardate 090818 Late last week we entered orbit around a lush, wet world known to the native populations as Blue Earth.

Eric and Spencer keep chatting in the back of my mind and my work in progress … Continue reading Living Free Means Hard Work
