I started this one based of #28: Stranded as Ssharki recording what he believed would be his final log entry following a shuttle crash. As I expanded the story to include the moments leading up to the crash I worked in elements from #33: New Romulus as well. Then I kept writing, started introducing some of Ssharki's senior officers (#26!) and the story expanded itself way beyond what I had anticipated. I'll keep it under the "Stranded" umbrella, but man is it easy to go off on a tangent while writing these stories!
Anyway, please enjoy "FROZEN" and the musical stylings of Shiny Toy Guns.
[Edit] This story contains some strong language, but it's all in Klingon.
That was an awesome entry, thanks for sharing, I rather liked Ssharki, he was a surprisingly spiritual brother
Calvin is certainly an interesting name for a Gorn, I hope the explanation behind it will be revealed in the future
Same for Sweetums... I have to admit, that did jar a bit, but I'm sure there's a fitting reason behind it
Very nice work
