Yes, three years ago on 30th April was the day that 'Captain Picard's Journal' was first opened. In that time, some weird things have been happening, and some strange characters have appeared.
Let's see what's been going on in the last year...
Karena and Wesley got engaged....although it wasn't exactly mutual! http://jlpicard.blogspot.com/2007/05/karena-at-hairdressers-part-two.html
Not long after that, Worf, Beverly, Geordi went through the Reality Barrier and encountered a Stargate in a three part story http://jlpicard.blogspot.com/2007/05/through-stargate-part-one.html
Ro Laren had a tough time when she crossed into a sinister universe that was strict on discipline here. http://jlpicard.blogspot.com/2007/05/through-mirror-strictly-part-one.html
Worf and Jadzia had a fun time at a holiday camp http://jlpicard.blogspot.com/2007/06/worf-jadzia-on-vacation-part-one.html
Some new people emerged during the last year. One was T'Pol, from the Terran Empire in the Mirror Universe of the 22nd Century. http://jlpicard.blogspot.com/2007/06/mirror-tpol-part-one.html
Her best friend is Ensign Britney. This is how they met: http://jlpicard.blogspot.com/2007/06/tpol-britney-in-brig.html
Beverly and I, Worf and Jadzia, Riker and Deanna all went on honeymoon. None of us were married, but we were trying to find who was abducting newly married couples.
Seven Of Nine helped us when a union firebrand official visited the Enterprise.
T'Pol and Ensign Britney went on vacation together. It could only lead to more trouble..and it did. http://jlpicard.blogspot.com/2007/09/tpol-britney-on-vacation-part-one.html
One of the major difficulties I had in the last year was when a piece of technology turned me into a criminal. In this five-part story, I had my own gang and a moll named Toots. http://jlpicard.blogspot.com/2007/09/picard-criminal-part-one.html . Even when I had recovered, it wasn't over, as I had to stand trial for the crimes I had committed. http://jlpicard.blogspot.com/2007/09/picard-on-trial-part-one.html
Though they were already engaged, Wes finally fell in love with the Amazon Karena in this story, leaving lots of problems that still have to be sorted out. http://jlpicard.blogspot.com/2007/10/karena-starfleet-academy-part-one.html
I had a huge problem when I crossed the Unreality Barrier, and had to be an actor named Patrick Stewart playing my part in the 20th Century. http://jlpicard.blogspot.com/2007/11/unreality-barrier-part-one.html
It was coming up to Christmas by now, and time for the traditional Enterprise Christmas Party, when you all send your viewpoints as to how it went. This was the last day: http://jlpicard.blogspot.com/2007/12/enterprise-christmas-party-part-five.html
Alexander was growing up. Worf and Jadzia thought it was time for him to have 'The Talk' http://jlpicard.blogspot.com/2008/01/alexanders-little-talk-part-one.html
Wesley and Karena possed passed their Starfleet Academy exams here in this three part story, and Karena encountered a rival. http://jlpicard.blogspot.com/2008/01/starfleet-academy-exam-part-one.html
T'Pol and Ensign Britney ran away to the Mirror Universe here, but found things were not so bright as they thought. http://jlpicard.blogspot.com/2008/02/tpol-britney-in-mirror-universe-part.html
The Borg Queen had an icy encounter at a Conference, when she and the Troi Borg Queen clashed. The Alpha Borg Queen, the supreme leader of the race was also there.
Ensign Britney had a tough assignment when she went undercover amongst the counterculture group known as the Dregs of Society in this six-part story. http://jlpicard.blogspot.com/2008/03/ensign-britney-undercover-part-one.html
Wesley and Karena were presented with their Ensign Diplomas here, and assigned to join the USS Rhode Island. Karena wasn't too happy to learn her rival was also coming along! http://jlpicard.blogspot.com/2008/03/ensigns-wesley-crusher-karena-part-two.html
Seven Of Nine was framed for the murder of a female drone she disliked. The Borg Queen and myself joined forces to find the truth. http://jlpicard.blogspot.com/2008/04/seven-of-nine-on-death-row-part-one.html
Those are just a few of the things that have been going on in the last twelve months. As for the future?
It's anybody's guess!
Thanks for all your comments. They really do help! It's been a pleasure writing in the last three years.
