  1. I enjoyed the movie. It had its issues, but the acting was good, it was neat to look at, and it was Star Trek.

    The problems I had were mostly two things (and maybe someone can explain how they make sense if they do and I'm being silly):

    1) Kahn transported from Earth to Qo'noS-- that was my understanding anyway. If this was possible, why have ships? Harrison used Scotty's transwarp beaming which is for transporting an object/person between adjacent ships or planets. Wouldn't that be Earth to Mars? Qo'noS is not adjacent (as a planet) to Earth. It might be in a solar system adjacent to ours but I think that's stretching it.

    2) The length of time it took the Enterprise to warp from Earth to Kronos. Or Kronos to Earth. Or Earth to Vulcan in the first movie thinking about it. In my opinion it would have added dramatic tension to have it actually take the two days its supposed to, but becuase this Star Trek is all action movie that is apparently "boring." I just think back to all those episodes where it took the Enterprise days to get to a place to save the day and having Kirk/Picard/Captain-of-Choice pacing and with the music and maybe a narration via a captain's log... nail biting to be sure.

    I liked the first movie better. But I too really like the Carol Marcus character-- she surprised me. Overall it was still fun and Star Trek and that makes me happy despite the flaws.

  2. Hi everyone! ::waves::

    I'm Kat, from the Pacific Northwest and am a personal trainer and writer. I've pretty much been a trek fan since I was born but have never gotten into simming. I think I found Starbase 118 through StarTrek.com's forums, but it might have been a google search :D. So far I'm really enjoying the training mission we are doing, though it's really weird to go from writing my own stories to sharing one with a group lol. But it's a good weird.

    Hope to see you all around.

  3. Dany stepped off the turbolift and out onto the carpeted walkway. The dome of the Commercial Sector rose up and over a giant city, though standing on the walkway it looked less like a dome and more like a blue sky with fluffy clouds. Here and there a cloud would move just right and the metal grid of the dome flitted in and out of view.

    Hitching her duffle over her shoulder, Dany walked along the walkway, passing shops and pedestrians (civilians and Starfleet alike) as she made her way to a small park with a fountain about two hundred meters away.

    Starbase 118 was large and sprawling. And it hadn’t changed since the last time Dany had been there, or hadn’t changed all that much. The Andorian gem merchant still sold crystals from the same storefront with the same old sign flashing above it; the Ferengi arms dealer still probably peddled blasters and illegal photon torpedoes from behind his upscale club down in the Dungeon.

    He’d sold her a faulty weapon, Dany remembered. Maybe she’d look him up and ask, politely of course, for her money back. Not that he’d give it to her, but now that she had Starfleet backing her maybe he’d see the wisdom of parting with a little bit of latinum.

    And wasn’t that something? Dany sat on a stone bench tucked into the corner of the park. She was now a Starfleet cadet and subject to rules and regulations now. Rules and regulations she and her mother had flung behind them when they’d left the Vulcan science colony when Dany was fifteen.

    What would her father have to say if he saw her now? Dany stretched out her legs and crossed her feet. Her decision to leave her mother’s devil-may-care lifestyle (as humans would say) and all the problems that came with was only logical. And it was also logical that she, being half Vulcan, would look for something beyond artifacts and stories and the next big adventure. Science was logical. Counseling, with her El-Aurian half trained for listening, was also logical.

    Dany smiled. Maybe logic wasn’t such a bad thing (though she’d never say it out right). She tapped her comm-badge. “Computer. Time?”

    “Oh-eight-thirty,” the mechanized voice piped.

    Dany stood and stretched. As a red ball bounced past followed by a trail of laughing children, she made her way back towards the holodeck where her training was scheduled to begin.
