700th Post!

Well, here we are, we've made it on to my 700th Post!

It is three and a half years ago when it all started out in April 2005, and all the members have gone their own ways.

Some newcomers might be a bit confused with what goes on, so I thought for this 7ooth post, we ought to look at them and see what they do:

Jean-Luc Picard: The beleagued Captain of the Enterprise who has to put up with everything else. In a discreet relationship with Doctor Beverly Crusher.

William Riker: Second in command. Has an unhealthy liking for donuts and is in a not-so-discreet relationship with Counselor Deanna Troi.

Thomas Riker: Duplicate of William Riker, created in a transport accident. Now a member of the Maquis.

Beverly Crusher: Chief Medical Officer and Captain's girlfriend.

Deanna Troi: Betazed Counselor and Riker's girlfriend.

Lwaxana Troi: Overbearing mother of Deanna Troi. Ambassador for home planet of Betazed.

Wesley Crusher: Disater-prone son of Beverley Crusher. Has recently got married to Amazon Karena. Both are serving on the USS Rhode Island

Karena: Wife of Wesley. She sees him as a Life Servant, there to do her bidding. Deadly with a spear. Comes from the planet of the Amazons, Wondawowman.

Queen Diana: Queen of the Amazons on Wondawowman, mother of Karena.

Nexa: Mischievous sister of Karena.

Captain Erika Hernandez: Captain of the USS Rhode Island

Commander Mark Hathaway: Second in Command on USS Rhode Island. Is overfamiliar with Hernandez.

Elizabeth Shelby:

Highly ambitious Starfleet Officer, determined to get to the top.

Guinan: El-Aurian bartender on the Enterprise.

Vic Fontaine: A holographic singer, created in the Enterprise nightclub named The Sands. Co-run by Fontasine and Guinan. The two have a discreet relationship.

Data: Third in command on the Enterprise. An advanced android.

Jennifer Baxter:

Ensign who is Data's girlfriend. A highly skilled fighter.

Lore: An evil duplicate of Data, also created by Dr Noonian Soong.

Geordi LaForge: Engineer on the Enterprise. Best friend of Data.

Trisha Lewis: Ensign, Geordi's girlfriend.

Luthor Sloan: Agent/Director of Section 31, a secret police group operating within Starfleet, and is accountable to no one.

Captain Beverly Howard: An evil copy of Beverly Crusher that comes from a parallel universe where women reign supreme.

Jadzia Dax: Trill Lieutenant and girlfriend of Lieutenant Worf.

Lieutenant Worf: Klingon Security Officer, father of Alexander.

Alexander: Son of Worf.

Ro Laren: Ensign who has been torn between the Federation and the Maquis. Girlfriend to Gul Vorak.

Gul Vorak: Cardassian Ambassador who is in a relationship with Ro Laren. As the two races are supposed to despise each other, they are doing everything they can to keep it secret.

Ensign Britney.

Ensign from Delta, where all citizens are bald. Constantly gets into trouble and is always in the brig. Close friend of T'Pol.

T'Pol: Comes from the 'official' mirror universe. Was in suspended animation for over 200 years. Best friends with Britney.

Seven of Nine: Borg drone placed on the Enterprise by the Borg Queen in order to learn more about human behaviour.

The Borg Queen: Controller of Borg Cube Unimatrix 01. She is Seven of Nine's leader.

The Alpha Borg Queen: Leader of the entire Borg race. Has taken it upon herself to invite herself to the Enterprise Christmas Party this year.

Borg Queen Troi: Comes from a parallel universe that is overrun by the Borg. She is essentially what Deanna Troi would be if she were assimilated. She is leader of Borg Cube Unimatrix 02 and believes the 01 Queen and the others are too soft. Vows to get us all, especially Deanna.

Annika Hansen: What Seven of Nine is really like in the Unimatrix Zero society. A place where Borg can live as their former cells if they have the recessive gene while regenerating. Their Borg selves know nothing of the secret life. Is currently serving as joint-Mayor.

Axum: Annika's former lover, who left her, and ran against her in the Mayoral elections in Unimatrix Zero. Joint Mayor.

Vi Toran: The Bajoran in Unimatrix Zero who Axum left Annika for.


Crotchety gardener at Starfleet Academy.

Ambassador Spock: Aged Vulcan who still serves with the Federation.

Holographic Doctor: The Emergency Medical Hologram that serves on the Enterprise. Has a bad temper, thinks he should do more important things. Has a taste for opera.

Q: A being from the Q Continuum who loves to cause as much annoyance as possible.


I hope that's cleared up some who might wonder who these particular characters are when you visit.

Thanks to all those who have visited. Not just now, but in the past.

Congratulations Captain!

I know it's been hard for you to keep the ship running as it does.

May be other 700 brilliant posts in your future!

Live Long and Prosper!

This blog often makes my day!

Epiphany said...

Yea, Captain!! Happy 700th post! I love the breakdown of the characters w/whom you interact. It helped me tremedously.

Here's to another 700, and then another. Congratulations!

Empress Bee (of the High Sea) said...

congratulations! (i thought there would be cake!)

smiles, bee

Michael Manning said...

Captain: I salute you with an imaginary raised glass of the bubbly stuff (it is a work night, after all). This is the most amazing cast assembled since Lynn Stalmaster's name ceased appearing at the end of every movie I ever watched as a kid! You may have just earned a new title of CSA! Karena, oh Karena..where are thou? Last question: How many Norelco shavers does Ensign Britney have in her loo? (Just wondering..):D) CONGRATULATIONS ON A FINE BLOGSITE! NOW, ONTO THE NEXT MILE STONE: #1,000 :D)

Merlyn Gabriel said...

congratulations Captain! And many thanks for your stories and hard work!

Jean-Luc Picard said...

Thanks for all your generous plaudits. It makes the writing very worthwhile.

Michael, as Ensign Britney comes from Delta, where the population have bald heads, she does not need a shaver.

Bee, I think Deanna had all the chocolate.

Epiphany, glad the breakdown helped.

Titania, I thought you were well on the way to that total.

Bilbo, look forward to your Christmas Party entry.

Gordon said...

gee Jean-Luc how you do it, I've no idea my post count at present but it's probably less even although mine has been going longer and well yours is always interesting ... :) I'll send deanna some more chocolate...

A Spot of T said...

A special day to come over and say Michele sent me. Congratulations on your 700th post!

Jon the Intergalactic Gladiator said...

Jaime said...

Congrats, Captain!!! This is great!!

Linda said...

A hearty congratulations on your 700th post and thank you for for the run-down on the entire cast of characters! There are certainly a lot of "discreet" relationships going on in there!

Best of luck as you continue your journey towards 700 more great posts!
