I suspect Kirk and McCoy had an arrangement where they wrote each other mutually beneficial reviews

Hrm, I may have to edit my previous LCs to reflect that ...
None too shabby

In the meantime, I'm going to have to think of what challenge I'll use for Story #2. As ever, I look forward to reading more entries from everyone else.
That was a fantastic conclusion, I certainly hadn't expected the twist at the end

@marcusdkane - The requirements in the LC were incredibly specific and I loved how you dovetailed previous entries into this one gracefully. It was shorter than I expected but was appreciated (because I could read it in between duties at work ) In other words: None too shabby

I had no idea Susanna Thompson can now be seen on the TV show "Arrow" as Oliver Queen's mother. A little research goes a long way ...

Thanks ^_^ The thing which caught my attention most about the brief, was the damage to the ship, rather than the resulting situation of replicator rations, so I decided to focus on that and completely ignore the titular issue As for the length, I wasn't feeling inspired enough to include the battle, or even the on-board modifications, so I just let exposition take care of that, and used the entry to resolve the issues I'd been mulling over since LC 39... I was this close >____< to assigning either an Andorian or a Barsoom Thark as the new First Officer, but as GulBerat advised me, without having a strong character for the role, they would just wind up another fifth wheel like Lambert became, so I decided to split the role to the officers who were arguably Amanda's closest advisors in other LCs ^_^ (I even allowed myself the luxury of utilizing a Borg Swiss Army Bunny to solve the problem for the ease of it... I can see why the writers of Voyager did it so often with Seven, it just saves soooo much effort...)

I wasn't aware of that either... O_O I know Alice Krige was the first actress in the role of Borg Queen, but Susanna's portrayal is much more sublime, and less overt... The only reason they got Alice back for the finale of Voyager, was because Susanna had a scheduling conflict!

@ stellardrfit - NICE! That is good inspiration for when I hit LC 8 myself

@ marcusdkane - I think I need to understnd the concept of "exposition" to be able to use it to better effect. Having said that, I think my recent entries are ... lacking ... something. Maybe I'm forcing myself?

I liked your having two First Officers for the reasons presented. It makes sense to me! For my part, the LC topic inspired me to look at the command structure from my gameplay: I have my absolute XO (the first BOff I got), then as I acquired more I have a ship-based BOff set up and a variant Away Team set up. Since I can only have one Tactical BOff on the ship, Anthi was the obvious choice, and for Ground missions I made Karl the Tactical lead while Kathryn acted as "XO". LC 2 was a chance to briefly explain how that happened.

Regardless, Seven of Nine (besides being eye candy) was certainly an easy short cut to a quick end and very convenient. I had a discussion with a friend recently and revealed my favorite Star Trek series "overall" was Voyager and one of the many reasons was because SoN offered many Many MANY differnet avenues to solve problems that otherwise would be tragic for the ship and crew. At the same time, I do remember saying to myself "How will she get Voyager out of this one?"

We need to do two, now? Fine with me....

So I've run with the idea and dropped Tylha into an infinite black void. (Best place for her, some would say.)
