Being meaning to post for a few days in here, but keep getting side tracked. I really enjoy the installments, thus far, and this was equally as good. It was a bit different and just seemed to be more technical in a way, but that is what I really enjoyed. You have a definite talent and obviously have put much, careful thought into it. I look forward to your next write up. I keep feeling like I'm reading a more user friendly version of Jane's Defense, SF style.

After several months & a great deal of hardship comes Deeprange generation, covering 2229 to 2242. Actually, it covers all of the 2220s, but officially it starts at 2229.

Here's a link since the server will STILL. NOT. let me attach a simple Word document.

Still around, out of curiosity? I was hoping to get back into writing, and I wouldn't mind offering you some critique as an effort to get my mind back into a writing mood.

Yeah, still around. And hey, no, that'd be great. Critique away.

The past few months have been exceptionally difficult for me, & so my attention & energy has been focused elsewhere. I only just yesterday actually opened up the outline file for Sentinel generation & did a little work on it for once. So, good timing & all.

Woo doggies, it's been some time. But hey, we're up & ready to go again. That being said, I've done some edits & even have some new product. So, I present the first 4 articles for your perusal:

  • Foundation covers the founding of the Federation and Starfleet in 2161, with a minor recapping of the Romulan War. (9 pgs.)
  • Unity covers 2162 through 2175. (10 pgs)
  • Trailblazer details ships from 2186 to 2202, interim history from 2175. (12 pgs.)
  • Deeprange runs from 2221 to 2242, with interim history from 2200. (17 pgs.)

I've also included the initial draft for Sentinel (20 pgs.), which covers 2254 to 2269...sort of. The interim history runs from about 2240 & the article in truth ends at 2265, but the last class enters service in 2269, so it's somewhat pseudopodic.

As usual, looking for general critique & comment, & even possible enjoyment. Questions, comments, complaints, & racial epithets can be sent my way as needed. I would ask that they be of a constructive nature, though; don't just say me you don't like something, tell me why. Be specific. I'd also appreciate being told of any grammatical & spelling errors; sometimes the eyes slide over things after so many readings. In the case of Sentinel, I know there's overuse of some words. Normally I make great use of Word's thesaurus but that article was about 85% written on a crappy mobile phone-sized Android tablet & I couldn't find a free thesaurus app with a sufficiently diverse offline dictionary. Keep that in mind: I'm effectively writing a book on a cellphone.

All files are in PDF format for easier viewing on tablets, & can be found here: https://drive.google.com/folderview?id=0B5HtjQmKMnxcamJxaXVpYUpvaGc&usp=sharing

THREAD REVIVE!!!

It's been just shy of three years since I made the last post in this thread. I wanted to give a small update.

The project has not been forgotten or abandoned. It has progressed nicely, as I've been working on it when I've had time & the like. Currently, I'm finishing up the initial draft on the Sojourner article, which covers the 2340s & early 2350s; the next one will handle TNG, DS9, & tangentially VGR, & there'll be two more after that. With luck, it'll all be drafted & gone through Edit Review by end of August or so. From there, I start at the beginning again with Draft Review 1 to tighten here & flesh out there before going to the independent readers. With luck, by the end of 2017, I'll be ready to buidl the website.

The creation of DSC has thrown me a minor annoyance; I honestly didn't expect another Star Trek series to deal with, especially another prequel. For now, I'm staying the course I've set, & once DSC is over & done with, I'll make the adjustments & edits necessary to both writing & data. So.

This has been a recording. 203, 121.
