I am a huge Trekkie. For all non-Trekkies out there, that means that I really like the television show Star Trek. Tons and tons of my writing is in some way influenced by Star Trek.
I used to write fanfiction for the original series. (I can’t put it on here because I never typed it up.) I only wrote twelve episodes, but it was enough to get me interested in writing in screenplay format. Then, one day, someone told me I should make up my own Star Trek series and write about that. So that’s what I did.
Voyages of the Starship Phoenix is a spinoff series set around the time of the Next Generation (early 24th century). It follows the starship Phoenix, which, lead by the kind and courageous Captain Stephen Lester, explores the galaxy.
A quick note: These are most certainly not perfect, especially the earlier ones. They were written entirely for fun, and I never drafted them. The episodes are only about 4000 words each. And they can get really, really weird. Like the one where the main characters end up at a Star Trek convention in 2014. So just be prepared.
…In all honesty, I don’t think many of them are particularly good. But that’s how you learn! I definitely developed my dialogue skills a LOT by writing Phoenix.
