That was an absolutely fantastic read I thoroughly enjoyed it, the characterizations, the interactions, the emotional displays, all truly amazing

What do you think?
That sounds like a fantastic idea ^_^ Given our conversations, I think it would be safe to say that you have as good an understanding of Marcus' traits as any, so I would most certainly trust you to write him using your own judgement, although of course, I am always happy to answer any questions about him I think that if you read his and S'rR's' biographies, that should give a good indication into his thoughts, and if you wish to set it at that early point in Alyosha's career, this cast list shows the Endeavour's Senior Officers and the actors who would portray them, incase there would be any interaction between them.

@ cmdrscarlet: A nice entry, and good to see Daikar enjoying better health than his Mirror Counterpart

@ Jonsills: That was a fantastic piece. Really explored the diversity of Starfleet, and it's always a pleasure to see a drone unleashed

@ designationxr337: A really fun entry, a really nice read

As for my own entry...
Well, given the freedom of all the past LCs, I have a lot of options... All I can say, is that I'm going to make use of them Watch this space...

@ marcus - Thank you! I had this one waiting because I was simply going to start writting on the past LCs in an open thread. That's why it was posted so fast after LC 40 was introduced. I had a hard time trying to figure out what would Kathryn have as a "prize" to keep. Then I recalled my utter joy playing the game in an Exeter (and hoping Cryptic will release a higher Tier or even a Fleet version) and went from there. I definitely wanted it to be something simple - my original thought was to transfer the Captain's chair as something she would carry with her from ship to ship. Also, Daikar *is* a character I want to keep using and thought it off putting to kill his Mirror-self as a way to introduce him. So, the last line was a way to bring some irony to the universe

Cast list:

Kathryn Beringer - Rachel Nichols
Daikar - Billy Zane

@ jonsills - Great piece and entertaining

@ designationxr337 - Excellent discriptions of EH technology and it's potential use - especially related to an in-game bug, brilliant merging of that with fiction to explain it!
Kathryn S. Beringer - The Dawn Patrol

Solaris build - Veritatum Liquido Cernene

Thanks! BTW, I got a few typos and weird phrasings cleaned out of the story. I think we'd probably better move the rest of the discussion of that story out of this thread so as not to clutter up the LC discussion, though.

Thanks! This will pre-date S'rR's, though, and the scenario I have in mind should not involve the rest of the Endeavour crew.

There will come a point, though, when I think Alyosha is going to say something that I won't be able to predict Marcus' response to. I will definitely ask you about that part, and don't be surprised if you get other questions from me as well.

Oh for sure, I just think it might help to read her bio, as it shows another aspect to Marcus' personality

OK...just PM'ed you the basic plot I have in mind. If you think Marcus wouldn't be on that kind of mission, just let me know. I'm also going to respond to what you said about "The Truth in the Illusion" in that thread.

This is perfect! I knew what I wanted to write next anyway, and there's a past LC that sets up exactly that premise. Now, to just make it to the weekend for a coffee-fueled, all-night writing binge...
