Whether the scope of the story will exceed the time I have in the challenge is a question, but this may allow me to look at the fallout of "The Interdictor," finally...

How very interesting...

I'll need to think about this one a bit, but I'm sure I'll come up with something...

That said, I'm looking forward to seeing what everyone else writes, especially Sander, Marcus, gulberat, scarlet, and jonsills.

That post belongs in the actual Lit Challenge Thread, not the Discussion Thread we're currently in.

Good story, though.

No worries. We all make mistakes like that sometimes.

I say again, though, rather good story.

Well, with this kind of restrictive topic, it's going to be a tough one this time......

Okay, in the end I did 'blink'-most of the material I put together for this one was too rough for the STO forums-too graphic. as it is, I wound up paring out about 3/4 of the stuff I'd actually outlined and summarizing the rest, hopefully the scenes aren't TOO rough and the story's not too 'jerky' as a result of chainsaw editing.

Look into Vanilla PvP if you're tired of the endless pursuit of grind, utterly unbalanced selections of geardo-inspired traits, and generally unbalanced and careless 'development' made mostly to turn this game into a second job.

I'm going to need some time to process. That was a serious story, all right. All I'm ready to say now is that it was no fair using "Red Sector A" like that, man - bypassed the intellectual filters and hit me right in the hippocampus...

For some reason that song does that to ME too...which is why I used it when I was writing the story. Some of the parts I had to cut were tied to specific verses from the song-I'd write it, then re-read it and realized that it was just a tad graphic-to the point that it was excessive. (one of the scenes I cut actually made me nauseous on second reading.) It's hard to walk a PG-13 line with subject matter like this, I won't be trying it again for a long time.
