Aha...looks like you snuck in just as I was hitting send on that other post about finding a topic.

I may not have one this month--if I did, it would be a hell of an uphill battle with Admiral "OpSec" ch'Harrell about letting cameras on his ships, and Alyosha's response was in these words: "Oh, no. Oh, GOD, no. No cameras aboard this ship. GOD no."

Why, 'cause they'd reveal him as Devidian? (Just curious.)

Yeah, these prompts aren't hitting any writing nerves for me either.

I don't think the cameras would reveal him as a Devidian, but they could reveal "odd habits" or other things that they think will make juicy story material. It could make someone speculate. The whole idea just gives him the creeps.

The other problem is the fleet admiral, ch'Harrell. In a sector where he has to fight the True Way and be concerned about information security breaches and so forth, he would fight tooth and nail to keep camera crews out of his sector.

Got a couple of stories brewing now. The 4028 story will, of course, feature Grunt, and for the movie it might be Burwell, or it might be Tovoa, a new toon I started just the other day - a Human orphaned as an infant, rescued by and raised as a Romulan, and currently a Centurion commanding the RRW Thrai, a Rhode Island-class seconded to the Republic. Both offer good hooks for a documentary...

Right, I'd better get cracking at a story idea, then.

...just as soon as I think of an idea, and just as soon as I find a way to overcome the writer's block that's more or less nipped my LC writing in the bud.

No ideas atm - will see what everyone else does, though.

Heeeeeeeey. That second prompt is looking pretty darn good to me.
You haven't heard "Jukebox Hero" until you've heard it in the original Klingon.

Just so we're clear with Three, when I said it could be any genre of film, that excludes snuff, erotica and indie.

The first two are pretty self explanatory.

I just refuse to believe that the idyllic, enlightened future Star Trek portrays would still consider indie films an actual genre of film.

JUST BECAUSE THAT ONE FLICK GOT OUT OF SUNDANCE AND MADE TONS OF CASH ON DVD DOES NOT MEAN IT'S A VIABLE OPTION FOR A SUMMER MOVIE! NO!
