And then things go wrong. Yay, our regular, psychotic, living weapon is back!

Overall, a great, amusing, dark story.
Meh, she's just playing nice because she likes "Do'eth", she's a huge Worf fan, and she's trying to score a date with Koren (who is uninterested).

This was a decent opportunity for some fairly typical Three badassery. And I wanted to write "Do'eth" finding out that the guy who killed her girlfriend was working for the Iconians. She is NOT a happy camper.

Thanks! I think I'll flip back and do another story or two on a different LC redux, just for fun.

Not really... As I've said before, I find Three's genre savvy intensely irritating... That she's a badass, I can deal with... That she hero-worships Worf, equally tollerable, but the genre savvy... That really is the deal-breaker of my enjoyment... However, as I've said before, very nicely written

Ok...Well, TEHO on the genre savvy; I find it to be amusing to write, myself. I'm actually more worried about her badassery; if you notice, I make it very clear that she has little to none of the tech savvy or starship skills that a Trek denizen has, and I give the other badass characters their own cool things to do, because...well, I hate Mary Sues, and I do NOT want to write one by accident.

But thank you for the feedback! I can't wait for your entry.

Admiral Cullen is played by Tori Higginson.


I'll see if there's any more I can cobble out as well. Now I've played my Rommie alot more, may go back and do some Romulan stories.



EDIT: I see the rules say only 1 entry. The past redux's let us have multiple, for different LC's, so I shall assume the same applies here.
I like it, especially Talaina's habit of transferring her rank pips

I believe the initial derestriction on multiple entries, was when the LC was continued rather than a new LC being posted

Ah. I thought the limit was lifted for reduxes. I have one almost ready to go, after deciding it was too unwieldy what I wanted to do, and seeing previous ones, decided it was better to split in2. I guess you will have to wait for those then. I can tell you it was set in perplexing problems and then lone drone. And featured the followup to that Borg briefing from my One Night series.

I know that cmdrscarlet posted at least two for the last redux...but one was just last month, and the other that I saw was around the time LC 50 ended.

Smirk, can we have a Word of Mod here on this?

Unfortunately, that is how genre savvy reads to me, but absolutely, TEHO

And no worries, as before, I do think you write well

And thanks, I know what I'm going to do, I just need to sit down and do it

Awesome I know old LC threads can be added to any time, not just specifically on redux challenges

So you find genre savvy in normally genre-blind universes to be Sue-ish?

H'mmm.......

Thanks for the compliment, though.

Very excited to see what Ael and company get into this time!

I liked it
