What would Scotty do?

From everything that I saw on TOS, it was obvious that Scotty was a diehard nationalist, even in the 24th century. But if he were alive today, do you suppose he would've voted for or against Scottish independence? On the one hand, I think that he would like to see his country stand its own 2 feet, but at the same time, I think that his background in engineering would make him rational enough for him to see the benefits of remaining a part of the United Kingdom. In short, I just don't know!See More

"I suppose that this is real, but it doesn't really tell us a whole lot, does it? One thing: the supposed leaked footage of the millennium falcon in a space battle is fake. The fans who created it have already owned up to the whole thing."

Happy Trek Day (on Monday)!

Well, shipmates, this coming Monday will mark the 48th anniversary of the premier of TOS. How do you plan to celebrate? I myself think that I'll watch "The Cage" in the morning during breakfast, to reminisce about how it all began. After dinner, I'll probably put in "Star Trek: Into Darkness," to see the latest incarnation. I also plan to read volume 1 of "These Are the Voyages" sometime next week. It's also been a while since I watched "Free Enterprise," and I could sure use a good…See More

What I've Been Up To

Hey shipmates, Yeah, I haven't been around much lately, sorry about that. There's been a lot of personal nonsense going on that I won't go into; I come to Trekspace to take a break from sh** like that. Once the dust settles (I hope), I'll be here so much that you'll get sick of me! On a cheerier note, I've also been busy writing the 3rd entry in my Paul Murdock thriller series, and it is now available on Kindle! This is the first time I ever wrote a novella, rather than a novel or a short…See More

About Me:
Greetings, Gentlebeings,
What can I say? I was born in 1966--the same year that TOS premiered--so it was innevitable that I'd be a trekkie! TOS will always be a classic, but I'm especially drawn to DS9 because it, like me, is considered the weird kid of the family! I'm here because I'm desperate for any contact with other Trek fans, or fans of SF in general. I also hope to maybe meet a nice Orion Slave Girl or Borg Babe. BTW: I'm a vent-dependent quadraplegic with SMA. No big deal.

I've added the cover to my latest book, Suka: A Paul Murdock Novel. All are available at authorhouse.com

Still counting!

It was 41 years ago today that I was given an emergency tracheotomy. One of the so-called "doctors" actually had the balls to say to my parents, "I give him a week, tops." The last I heard, he died several years ago of a cocaine overdose, and I'm still here, just like Admiral Kirk on Regula. Like a poor marksman, he missed the target!

The Start of Something Big (I hope)

My new science fiction novel, "Gone A-Viking," went on sale on Thursday on Kindle, and has already sold 4 copies. Not exactly Stephen King, but it's still the most books I've ever sold in such a short amount of time. If anyone here was one of the buyers, you have my eternal gratitude!

Need Tech Help Here, Trekkers!

Right. I'm proofing the final draft of my new novel, when I come across several pages that have a line of dots, like army ants, going right across the page. The remedy laid out in "Windows 2010 for Dummies" didn't work, which I suppose means that it was written BY dummies.

I can't submit this until this has been corrected, so if anyone has any Scotty/Geordi/O'Brien/Torres/Trip aspirations, sing out! If your suggestion works out, I'll mention you in the…

Hey, Sorry again.  No, I totally understand.  I have movies I don't even care for just because I had the complete trilogy or set. Oh well.  Hope you have been well!

Hi Mike, I'm sorry I've been away for awhile. I had some stuff going on that got a little distracting. How are you? To answer your previous question I think the DS9 episode you mentioned is also one of my favorites. It's one of several that always makes me cry.

Mike, you are a scholar AND a gentleman.  Many thanks to you for your kind words.  And Happy New Year right back at ya!

At 8:15pm on December 2, 2013, Trekscribbler (aka Ed) said…

Hmm.  Is that just the cover?  Was this an ebook cover?  I know that what I'm working on is a full wraparound, and the first time I uploaded it the dimensions they had originally provided to me didn't work.  That's what I'm in the process of re-formatting to some new specs, and (hopefully) it'll all work out when I get back to it.

As for 'would it pique my interest'?  Yes, it damn well would.  The backdrop I'd probably lower a shade or two just to bring out the 'noir' quality of it all, but, yeppers, you put a bad@ss with a gun on any cover, and I'm moderately piqued.

At 4:26pm on December 2, 2013, Trekscribbler (aka Ed) said…

Urgh.  Sorry, dude.  I don't have any advice.  I know that with the only one that I've uploaded I created the cover myself using the specific dimensions that they said I would need for it.  With my self-published novel, I had to download their template b/c (yes) they said the dimensions I had used were not correct for how it would lay-out in printed format.  To be honest, though, I haven't even looked at it -- I'm shooting for a publication date in February as of right now, so I'm just procrastinating.  Did the error message say anything more specific?

I know it's been said before but part of the brilliance of the show is the stories being so well written (most of the time) you can look past the cheesy scenery and special effects. So what's your favorite DS9 episode?
Thanks for the birthday wishes. I did have a good day.
At 3:18pm on November 5, 2013, Bonnie Munroe said…
Hi Mike, My favorite TOS episode is probably "Devil in the Dark". DS9 is a very close second as far as my favorite series. So many good episodes.
Thanks for the compliment about my dog. She's a sweetie.

Hey MIKE cheers for your message. I just thought I hadn't been here in quite some time -- it's great to see that the place can still be a little lively sometimes.
