Commander Rose Sharon, haunted by visions of the past, encounters someone else whose life was changed by the people of the mid-24th century.

Good story about Cmdr. Sharon. Glad she managed to keep her cool - despite everything.

I'd been looking for a seed to a story about how Cmdr. Grunt came into possession of the heavy cruiser USS Hephaestus. This may give me the opening I need to make the damn thing finally come to fruition and get out of my head.

Now this was an unexpected turn of topic ...

Well done

@cosmonaut12345 - I had to read the passage a couple of times to grasp what was happening and reading your post in this forum helped. Then again, I'm reading at work so anything may be my fault. I'm a fan of the last paragraph - there's something awesome about it.

For those who didn't follow my Character Study thread, Rose Sharon is my Fed Borg Engineering BOFF.

A mid-24th century Iotian, assimilated by the Borg, and with a deep and abiding hatred for them. (And she still looks like the Borg Boff, albeit in a Sierra uniform, so that guy from Hugh's colony thought she might be a sympathetic ear...)

She sounds a bit like Arleen Sorkin in my head.

Great little piece! I love characters who don't recognize their own contradictions - or perhaps are all too aware of them and force themselves to ignore them. Cmdr. Sharon I suspect is the latter.

By the way, if Sharon is an Iotian, doesn't that mean the Collective also knows all about Chicago Mobs of the Twenties? Perhaps they know how to adapt to a Thompson M1921 after all...

Interesting challenge this time around.

Not sure if I'll come up with a piece for this one or not, but I'll certainly read everything that everyone else writes, and maybe post feedback!!

Huzzah, more of the Robert April and her crew!

Wonderfully-written piece. You captured all of the teeth-grinding anxiety of Rose's PTS quite vividly, and I could practically feel her reaching the bursting point before she had to have one of her BOFFs take over.

Agreed with takeshi, this is an interesting topic that I'll have to think on. Before I write on it, though, I'm going to write Arkos and crew getting a new ship (though first I have to decide WHICH of my in-game ships I'm going to use...)

As for me, I have too much to catch up on (The Road to Ruin, my Romulan Arc, more backstory from LC 40, etc.) and I can't think of anything to write into this topic - at least nothing as compelling as what I'm already working on.

Look forward to reading everyone else's entries though!
