Trek Fiction

I didn't particularly intend to write any fan fiction, but the two Star Trek stories I wrote this time last year were based on very specific ideas I had.

The idea for Data Dump came about after watching Nemesis. I wondered whether it would be possible to bring Data back; after all, we thought he'd been blown up in a space ship once before. After some thought I came up with a plausible sounding pseudo-scientific way for him to make a come-back.

The title Pro Capitaneous Mori is derived from the Wilfred Owen poem Dulce et Decorum Est. I wondered what life was like on the Enterprise under Captain Kirk for those red shirted security guards who always got shot. I wrote this one as a diary, one of a number of different formats that I've tried. I'll tell you about the others another day.
