You can have a civilian, certainly. Just keep in mind that not a lot of civilians run into the services of Starfleet. But, sure, Mothers-in-Law; annoying traders breaking the law.... there are many options.
Well, this one is kinda out of left-field, but should be interesting! So...write about or own personal Finnegan or Luwaxana Troi? I hope they aren't all about Franklin Drake!
I've got a good love-hate relationship I could write about (an old rival of my PC. There's grudging respect (on his end at least) but it's more of a Odo-Quark thing).
I made mine about Frinklin Drake because I was the first on the forum to mention the idiocy of his plan in "Night of the Comet" In fact, when I wrote my quick "rant," I had my original thread's title come up as an option (thank you autofill).
