Two years ago, on 30th April 2005, I first sent 'Captain Picard's Journal' to my intern in the 21st Century, starting with Waking Up
The last 12 months have been as eventful as the first, such as meeting a parallel universe version on Beverly in Captain Beverly (Part One)
a weird race help up by string in Stringworld (Part One)
and a group of characters who came to the Enterprise when the barrier between the real and unreal world started falling apart in The Reality Barrier(Part One)
Bev's son, who seems to save the ship, when he's on board (although he might be the cause!) has got problems of his own, as he has an amazonian girlfriend (Karena)
from the planet Wondawowman whom he needs to serve, seen in Wesley's Girlfriend and other stories.
The Enterprise has some additional staff, notably Seven Of Nine,
who has been placed on the ship by the Borg Queen to study human methods. She was first seen in Seven Of Nine (Part One) .
Also on board is the self-aware hologram Vic Fontaine.
He is a nightclub singer who performs in The Sands, a holodeck set up for the crew to visit. He is in Vic Fontaine .
Lastly, we have the troublesome Ensign Britney from the planet Delta.
who seems to spend most of her time in the brig!
My Journal, though used by myself seems to have been used by all crew members, and also others like Karena, and The Borg Queen. Look in the Categories in my Sidebar for a list of their writings, or stories that involve them primarily.
Thanks to each and every one of you for reading my Journal. It's encouraged me to keep on going with this. Your comments, together with my Awards for beings one of the Blogger 'Blogs Of Note' and Yahoo 'Pick Of The Day' (April 20th 2007) spur me even more.
To meet such a fine group is a big plus in itself, many I've known for as long as the Journal has been running. Nic is a very dear blogfriend, as is Ciera . Many others are new friends, such as Mistress Of The Dark , Table For Five and Tricia, some of which have helped me with HTML problems. I'm sorry I can't list everyone, but each on my bloglist is a friend. They are not just there to fill the screen!
Just as a bonus, here, from Syari is a singing session by Captain Picard. Be prepared! You haven't seen anything like it...
Here's to the next twelve months. I hope you enjoy whatever will come this way.
