    The extended hiatus continues . . . "I'm not dead yet!" - Soon to be dead guy from Monty Python and the Holy Grail "Nothing happened. After a few moments, nothing continued to happen." - Douglas Adams It's been an interesting couple of years; we had both my father-in-law and my father in our home under hospice care during that period. My FIL passed about 18 months ago and my father passed on January 4 of this year. The family is doing well but we're still busy dealing with personal effects, selling Dad's house, etc. Apparently, writing is not like riding a bike. More like falling off of one. When you get away from writing (and vice-versa), it's easy to become gun shy. I've ideas a-plenty but nothing is flowing from the gray matter to the little computer screen. I've gone back and re-read some of the orphan stories that languish on the Trek BBS. Some are worth salvaging and completing. With others, I have searched (without success) for the delete button. I need to catch up on reading your stories also. I'm WAAAY behind! All that to say, I am doing well and will write again at some point. If any of you want to borrow characters from the Bluefin, please feel free. I think they're getting bored, sitting around the old cutter with nothing to do. TLR

    Long Time No See

    It's been a long time since I've posted and seen most of you, but some big things happened in my life that I should tell you about which explains why you haven't heard from me and why I haven't been writing. First, my mother suffered from Alzheimer's through most of the 2010's. As her condition worsened, I had to take on a greater role as caregiver until I and my family could no longer give her the proper care she needed and we had to place her in extended care. Me and my mother were very close and when she passed away in 2015, I spiraled down into a very deep and dark depression where I didn't really so much live, as exist. It was a very dark and painful time for me and really only recently ended. Last year at about this time, I passed out during a cardiac stress test and was rushed to the hospital where they had to perform a double coronary bypass and had a heart valve replaced. They had to perform surgery on me twice as they had to stop some internal bleeding. I nearly didn't make it through. It took me the better part of 2017 to recover from my surgery, but during that time, thanks to the love of family and friends, I got better. Now, I've dropped 70 pounds from last year and my depression is history. I've come to terms with the loss of my mother and I've found that my creative energies have been restored. If my friends at United Trek would have me back, I'd love to finish the stories I'm doing. Right now, I'm working on "Blood Cries" and I think everyone will like the ending of that story. I look forward to reading and sharing with everyone once again and to those who enjoyed reading about our wayward captain Liz and all her friends, well, if you'll have me, she's baaaaaack!

    Plebe Year

    The first new Sutherland Plebe Year is up now as a downloadable .pdf file through the link here and on Trek BBS and Ad Astra. It looks a little bit at Liz's childhood and at her freshman year at the Academy.

    So, obviously we got caught up in the editing phase, and then life happened. I changed jobs and AJ's life has changed significantly since then. But we've been talking about finishing this thing and getting it out there for everyone to read MDg

    Hey man, good to hear you are doing well all things considering. The beauty of writing fan fic is that we can step away from it anytime and also come back whenever we rediscover that elusive muse, as a number of us have demonstrated over the years and even very recently. Take your time and I'm sure one day, sooner or later, you'll be back to enriching the UT-verse with those terrific characters and stories of yours.

    Hello everyone, Letting you know that I posted some new stuff, "The Four Years War Origins: Future's Past" over at TrekBBs. Hopefully I'll be able to finish TFYW: Year Zero, revise my TFYW: Year One stories, and we'll see about covering the rest of the war from that point on. I invite all to read and if letting me know what you think about the stories and the direction I'm taking the Four Year War concept in. If you have any suggestions let me know those as well. Thanks. https://www.trekbbs.com/threads/ut-the-four-years-war-origins-futures-past.292661/

    All of reality was dying. That much had already been determined. The equations and calculations simply could not allow for any other conclusion. To deny this simple fact was tantamount to denying the existence of reality itself. And the study of reality was their entire raison d'être, their paramount purpose and their most sacred of responsibilities. Perhaps it had been different once. Before such considerations as the past, the present and the future had warranted separate and altogether different avenues of thought and philosophy. But once those distinctions had been left behind and deemed irrelevant when contemplating the total sum of reality, considered as too much of an impediment to fully comprehending and appreciating everything that was, is and ever will be, once they had reached that next stage of cognitive evolution, their duty had become inescapably clear.

    There was a time, long ago, when veteran physician and Starfleet medical legend, Elijah Katanga, had been a young man. The galaxy was a very different place back then and offered more than ample opportunities for him and his close personal, Trill friend Dezwin Sigus to get into a whole lot of trouble. But not all escapades of youth are innocent, and sometimes their repercussions can be felt even long after the fact. Now, Tazla Star has to reconcile the actions of a former life while balancing the burdens of friendship and duty. The Audacity of Youth, is now available in full at the TrekBBS and at Ad Astra.

    Eagle’s return to Earth signals a homecoming for much of her crew. But not everyone aboard is close to home again, certainly not Nora Laas, the Bajoran security chief who has eschewed her homeworld ever since leaving it behind to escape a brutal occupation. After an unexpected collapse while on duty, friend and counselor Alex Clancy tries to help the reluctant Laas to get to the deeply-rooted issues which have been plaguing her for years. Admitting that they even exist, is only the first step on a long and challenging journey Nora Laas is about to embark upon. Awakening, is now available in full at the TrekBBS and at Ad Astra.

    Absent Friends

    Just posted Absent Friends up on Trek BBS and will get it up on Ad Astra probably tomorrow. I've cleaned up grammatical errors and have added some new stuff, so Cejay, I'll send you over a .docx attachment tomorrow as well. Cold Comfort should be up in a day or so as well. Feels good to be writing again.

    Glossary of Orion Words

    Since the USS Bluefin patrols the borderland near Klingon and Orion space, I thought I'd provide a list of Orion terms I have used/may use in future stories. Feel free to use or add any for stories set in the United Trek universe. A brief glossary of Orion terms - Ah'met - 'Captain,' 'Leader' or 'Prince,' literally - Supreme. (Credit goes to Gibraltar for this one.) Ah'met-sur - Syndicate clan leader. 'Lord.' Literally - 'Grand Supreme.' Ahm’suka - term of respect for an elder, literally - 'Wise head.' Met'mat - Father Met'Sando - Adoptive father, literally - 'Near-father' Met'Chan - Mother Jih'mat - brother or male cousin Leh'mhin - sister or female cousin Chadoi - daughter Mehk - son Moi - child J'moi - children H'lajmoi - abandoned children, orphans Sundija - Orions not part of a Syndicate clan - basically serfs in a feudal system. Literally - 'Under-people' Sundrik - Non-Orion Slave Ah'm'sund'rikan - Slave master Hri'gun - rodent Vuut - an insult, roughly equivalent to 'fool' or 'idiot.' Slis'pul - a derogatory term, roughly equivalent to S.O.B. Kima - measurement of time, roughly one second Mekima - measurement of time, roughly one minute Jul - measurement of time, roughly one hour Slarndra - derogatory term for a red Orion (used by green Orions). Slis'jaka - an extremely vulgar term, worse than Slis'pul. Kleemat - a unit of measure, slightly longer than a kilometer Teuurn - Human Met'nahl - Clan or family Met'lorhalan - Syndicate Nal'klisa - bond sum to free a child of age from service with the syndicate, literally - 'free ransom.' V'ores'sur - Verex III - Orion homeworld - 'Place of the Clan.' V'ores'katul - Verex IV - the 'Place of no Souls' - the outcast planet shunned by the Syndicate. V'ores'dur - Orion afterlife, Hell. Shen'lur - Starship Klihn - Klingon Ah'njor - Andorian Tehl'rul - Tellarite Vuhlka - Vulcan Isha - Yes Ru - No Jeh - Go Nuh - Stop, Wait Reht - Obey Kehf - Hot beverage (coffee, raktajino) C'hav - Wound, injure C'hur - Kill Fet'jun - 'Federation' or 'Starfleet' R’uulk - Romulan Fehn'gur - Ferengi Kahrd'sa - Cardassian Grehlt - Monetary unit - coin, slip, credit, etc. J'Grehlt - Money, loot, treasure Lin'hur - Fight, struggle, combat Ser'chaan – Weapon, Phaser, Disruptor L’hak – Blade, knife
