To Boldly Go...From as far as I can remember I was a fan of the show. At first it was the idea of traveling through space that held my interest, and as I grew older I began to understand the social messages that were part of the stories. Over time I found myself not only watching the shows but wanting to be part of it in anyway that I could. Eventually I found a writing forum in which participants did not only read about the Star Trek universe but took part in it, shaping the universe with our imagination and written interactions.
I stopped writing a couple of years ago because of real life issues but now I am going back, partially because I need the distraction from the mess that my life had become but also to reconnect with friends and the feelings that were attached with the creation of this ongoing story. As in many of the episodes, there are messages and wisdom to be found in everything written and it is a great feeling to know that there are others out there sharing, reading and writing with you.
I was and still am a fan of Star Trek because of the stories, the messages and the overal idea that whatever may happen, the future can and will be a better place.
To one and all... Live long and prosper.
