A little embarrassing, but I just logged into ye olde website and saw my last post was in April with the release of Crimson Son 4: Legacy. As I type, I'm also noticing WordPress has seriously updated their interface. It's like I've traveled forward in time and woken to a new reality. A started a … Continue reading Wait!?! I have a blog?
Stardate ???????? My absence requires a long and difficult explanation. I only hope the higher-ups at Starfleet will look favorably on my past record. My hope is that I shall not be deemed unfit for duty. Our first sign of trouble was when the communications array on Discovery went dark. We'd just entered a system … Continue reading This Side of Paradise
Universal translators are a fickle thing. Yes, they can provide a literal translation but they can't revise and rearrange ideas. Anytime a maintenance query or systems report request begins with "Shaka, when the walls fell," I'm out.
Captain's Log, Stardate 100618 "We're dead in the water. That," I said, pointing to the umbilical linked to our dock, "is the only thing keeping us alive." The situation since Farpoint Bronson had become dire. Our dilthium crystals drained, our only source of power was being provided by an automated way station situated light years … Continue reading Darkside of Nowhere
Captain's Log, Stardate 092918 Having barely escaped our encounter at Farpoint Bronson, we set a course for Federation space. As we departed, our antimatter clones watched with interest, their minds calculating, conspiring, but what? Our impulse engines humming just outside the far edges of known space, I called for the crew to prepare for warp. … Continue reading Shades of Lazarus
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. Gravitational currents of unknown origin pull on Discovery's hull as we cross the … Continue reading Encounter at Far Point Bronson
*Another update in my personal saga as I search for a means to commit mobile fiction. It's been a busy few months and, yes, my writing has slowed but not to worry - I'll be back on track soon. Eric and Spencer keep chatting in the back of my mind and my work in progress … Continue reading Living Free Means Hard Work
Last weekend we managed to squeeze in a trip in Discovery. We found a hidden gem of a state park only three hours outside the summer kiln of Dallas / Fort Worth. We lounged lakeside enjoying the thrill of doing absolutely nothing. I'd intended to file the usual Captain's Log for our trip, but lately … Continue reading Minimalist Mindset
For our latest trip in Discovery, I wrote a fairly general post about encountering difficulties along the way. I'd meant to give my typical Captain's Log entry (or First Officer...there's likely some debate and a brewing mutiny) but as it turned out, I didn't have time. This was our first real test. Embarking from … Continue reading The Road Ahead
Every day on the road with Discovery we learn something new. For instance, did you know the side mirror is exactly six feet off the ground? I’m six foot two… I’ve been bludgeoned by this reality multiple times now. Each stop requires a walk around check and my eyes are always lower to the ground. … Continue reading Bumps and Bruises? All Part of the Journey…
