As McCoy might say if he were a writer, "I'm a writer, not an artist, dammit." Alas, my vision for the image today turned out to be beyond my capability. So please imagine Ellie in this human hamster ball as you read on. Enigo was right. They were close to the ground,...

ST:HMB Trouble in Filedise, part 9

Wow- part 9 already! In my brain, this always goes much faster. Thank heavens there are Captain’s logs to skip us past the long boring parts.  We'll need a password in this episode, and gone are the days of "Riker-Omega-3," which sounds fishy, anyway. I figure they're...

ST:HMB Trouble in Filedise, part 5

via GIPHY Ellie Doall had a shameful secret. Well, shameful to her. Anyone else would think it perfectly normal. Ellie was not good with her hands. She could visualize her way through just about any problem, technical or personal. She always had an idea, especially...

ST:HMB Trouble in Filedise, part 4

The frustrating part about doing a serial seat-of-the-pants style is that sometimes too many characters want a say and the whole thing gets too complex. For example, I had a very nice backstory for Deary about having grown up on Filedise and escaped, which made him a...
