Thanks a lot. I really enjoyed making it. The lessons Iíve learned along the way have really helped. I try to pass what Iíve learned on to other authors too. It makes the community stronger as a whole.

I wrote it with my character in mind as well. Iíve played many missions that made me feel more like a passenger rather than the Captain. They were still great stories and missions but I like to write as if there is a reason the player was made Captain. Itís great to have smart BOFFís but hopefully they got that way because of the influence of the Captain. You are right about the writing being risky as it may not appeal to some players, but the style just feels more like all the Captains from the series. There was always a tone self confidence in their ability to get the mission done. To me that is what a good Captain needs to succeed. I also like making the player smile at the wit or the wisdom in a dialog or the way an element of the mission flows. Thanks so much for the compliment and I am really glad you enjoyed yourself. That is my ultimate goal.

Thanks. As I wrote the story script I felt it would make an interesting storyline to draw a parallel with something most people, at least in the STO community, have heard of. Iím glad you liked it.

I have done a 2 part Klingon mission and I am developing more scripts to create more missions on both sides. Between work and school it can get a little hectic but I look at playing STO as a fun way to leave those concerns behind.
