Speaking of LC 41, I've got a feeling about what this one will be centered around. Not spilling what I think it is yet though.
Two weeks ago, I would've put money on it being an officer exchange program... Now, I have no idea, and am just waiting to see where fate takes Amanda and her motley crue... I suspect Ensign Mitchell is going to be waiting a while for his rescue...
Is the story being told many years after the events of STO? Made me wonder when I saw the reference to Alyosha! Things must have had to have really changed for him to feel comfortable with revealing what he was to the public.
Great entry to encapsulate / cap off your story arc with Bryan and Ibalei.
Captain Palmer's haven sounds lovely. Fascinating look at the Pentaxian culture - similar in many ways to feudal Japan. Was that deliberate? Staying tuned to see what happens to S'rR's and Ensign Mitchell.
Great little mission adaptation with the sad twist of the loss of a bridge officer. Thank you for squeezing that one in; I enjoyed reading it very much!
The time has come. But, what an incredible month it's been?! Thank you to every single one of you who not only participated in #40 but also discussed the entries. Seems like you all had a great time being able to catch up on past challenges. We may have to do this again in the future
Unsticking, but as always, feel free to continue discussing. #41 coming up!

The Nova-Class is so small, that it doesn't have any holodecks, nor does the captain have a readyroom... I figured she deserved a little real-world treat, rather than just somewhere on the ship

Yes and no... I felt it should be a Dynasty rather than an empire, as Trek already has a few Big Empire's, so that was a deliberate comparison to Japan, but for the remainder of Pentaxian culture, I always saw it as a cross between Arabic and Indian cultures
Somebody once described Keenser's role as being the exact opposite of Jar-Jar Binks--small and unusual though he was, he actually played the straight man to nuScotty's insanity. That gave me the idea of making the Roylans a rather strict, discipline-driven society. One that might strike other species as surprising given their size (as they would associate such behavior with imposing physicality).
Teeglar might be back sometime...we'll see.
Apologies for missing this yesterday... I'd not heard that description applied to Keenser before, but yes, that is certainly very true. I hope Teeglar will make a return at some point

As for what I would've decided in her place...honestly, that is too difficult for me to answer. I cannot say what I would've done.
That's an interesting perspective, not one I would have considered, but certainly something I will bear in mind for future entries I think in this instance, it was simply a matter of cross-cultural differences, rather than deliberate withholding of information by the Adigeon doctor. The only information truly withheld, was MacLeod's omission to disclose the twin's genetic sequence containing the Lazarus gene, but that is simply medical policy rather than a personal failing on his part: 24th Century medicine can recognize a genetic marker in individuals who become immortal, and quantify the processes of the Quickening, but it does not understand it enough to tell if it is dormant or active until the actual event, so no one gets told, for fear of mass suicides if people were told, and the gene was to not activate, as happened with Alix.
