Off the Record

It’s been a long time since I’ve last written. There’s so much that has happened that I feel like I’m going to forget to mention something. At the same time I felt like nothing real notable has happened. Still, I miss the writing process and here I am once again at it. Tino getting aContinue reading “Off the Record”

Off The Record

(A more extemporaneous entry) Listen to this episode The last few days have been wild! On Saturday morning, I decided to go to Tilden Park with my daughter (the boys didn’t want to come) near Berkeley (~100miles away). The park is a massive nature preserve with a lot to do. On the drive, Bella andContinue reading “Off The Record”

Listen to this episode Today, the (work) crew and I were relocated to Starbase 701 (new worksite). As I pulled up in my shuttlecraft (car), I noticed a number of shipless (homeless) encampments just outside the perimeter of the Starbase. Upon further inspection, I noticed a little girl (about 6 years ago) scurrying about theContinue reading “Captain’s Blog Stardate 07122022.9”

Off the Record

(A more extemporaneous entry) Listen to this Episode After 2 and a half years of not talking with me, my dad called me. He called with the purpose of reiterating what he has already told me; which is to say that he accepts my transition but still remains firm in his belief that little kidsContinue reading “Off the Record”

Listen to this Episode The crew (kids) and I have been quite busy this week. Our away mission to the Francisco sector was quite successful in providing some respite for the crew and I. It’s not often that Federation dignitaries (my extended family) get together. It’s a nice reminder that our crew isn’t alone inContinue reading “Captain’s Blog: Stardate 11302021.6”

Listen to this Episode The crew is in a festive mood this Thanksgiving day morning. As I prepare my officers for an away mission, I am mentally taking stock of the things I am grateful for. I think it’s easy to take for granted the things one has and to start to cast your eyeContinue reading “Captain’s Blog: Stardate 11252021.5”

Listen to this episode We continue to find ourselves in an unstable region of space. Unfortunately, it seems as though things will get worse before they improve. Our ship continues to be hobbled by the effects of the gravitational eddies we passed by. Ensign Noah’s console (computer) has yet to be repaired due to limitedContinue reading “Captain’s Blog, Stardate 10122021.2”

Captain’s Blog: Stardate 10042021.5

Listen to this episode The ship is in a slightly more stable region of space than it was last week. Our chief engineer (the mechanic) identified the issue with the warp core (the car engine) and it seems the ship will need a new EPS manifold (starter). The EPS manifold is slotted to be replacedContinue reading “Captain’s Blog: Stardate 10042021.5”

Captain’s Log, Stardate 08082021.8

Listen to this episode We were on the edge of Federation space, observing the Cordovo nebula when we detected a previously unknown planet within the nebula. Current scientific understanding of nebulas seem to indicate that planets shouldn’t be able to form within nebulas. Looking to further learn about the planet, our crew took a shuttleContinue reading “Captain’s Log, Stardate 08082021.8”

Captain’s log, Stardate 07302021.2

Listen to this episode The last few days I’ve been confined to my quarters. I thought that I had caught the galactic plague but after being tested by Starfleet medical, I was cleared of covid despite having very similar symptoms. Nonetheless, it was a scary and trying experience. Our three Caitian crewmen have got aContinue reading “Captain’s log, Stardate 07302021.2”
