From the gloom of his alcove, six of eight heard an unspoken command. Aroused from his slumber, he wordlessly departed, and headed to fix a broken plasma injector, one of 11,000 drones on cube 1027; travelling towards Earth at a speed barely imaginable, Traversing the corridors, he took no notice of how alone he was; there was a world of voices inside his head. After an hour or two, he reached the correct injector, and with a tubule, he injected the entire machine with fresh Nano-probes.
Before he was assimilated, a year previously, he was called John Cooper, an engineer aboard the Geordie, an old excelsior class vessel that strayed a bit too far towards the delta quadrant, and paid dearly for it. Before any of the crew knew it, they found themselves linked to the collective, all personality purged. He had been a tall, dark haired Human, just twenty years of age; such life ahead of him. In one short year, he had
X-Men - Target Frost Part 1Alison Blaire was glowing. Her blond tresses sparkled brilliantly and her supple skin glittered underneath the dim lights of a Manhattan hot spot. Her body formed an elegant s-shape as it curled onto the glass table in front of her. Alison's hands cupped her bottle of water and could feel the crisp coolness dampening her skin. "When was the last time we did this?" She asked, her voice crackling with enthusiasm.X-Men - Target Frost Part 13 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
"It's been a long time." Betsy answered. "I'd say we haven't been out like this since our little mall adventure."
"Goddess, has it been that long?" Ororo added.
All thoughts of being part of the X-Men were drowned out by the loud music and even louder conversations. Superheroism and mutant politics were far from the minds of Alison and her friends. For tonight, they were four women having a couple laughs and a few drinks in the process. Alison had ditched her leather combat suit for a chic gold dress and sky-high Louboutin platform heeled shoes, their red bottoms hugging the met

Approximately two hours must have passed since ensemble of Total Drama had been first thrown into this nightmarish game. In that time no one had yet to find the hidden prize money, three contestants had been eliminated, and at least three interns were hunting their prey. The ground floor had become rather quiet in that time, Trent's team choosing to move up a floor after crossing paths with Noah and Eva twice. Team E-Scope was looking a little thin, missing two party members, but Noah had decided it was better that way. Brains and muscle, he and Eva were enough of a team to turn the whole hotel on its head.
Eva somehow must have heard the inner dialogue as she upturned a large vase, emptied it of debris, than let it smash to pieces on the tile below. Noah internally frowned, he didn't mean for her to literally turn the place upside-down.
"Eva," he gestured with his hands, "Calm down."
"I am calm!" she snapped back, stomping back towards the lobby.

"Space. The final frontier. These are the voyages of the Starship Polaris. Her mission: to explore strange new worlds. To seek out dangers and wonders. To boldly go and make a stand!"
For everyone who was inspired by a small ship which went against the big wide world
I. The backstory
During the Earth-Romulan War, Starfleet was busy pushing forward to Romulus. What they didn't know is that the Romulans are also pushing toward Earth. In the wake of a destructive attack, a group of Human pilots, gunmen and merchants decided to put together a fleet to hold the line should the Romulans arrive. Using old and outdated starships and led by a small fleet of seventeen privately owned light cruisers, they laid the cornerstone of what became the United Earth First Fleet. They held the line when the Romulans came and found their way after the founding of the United Federation of Planets as a permitted "member fleet".
As the decades went by, the First Fleet crossed p

Sela paced her quarters. So far all of my plans have been thwarted...I have been sinking lower and lower with each failure. My mnhei'sahe has nearly run out. But today, all of that will change.
The door chime to her ready room beeped softly. "Enter," Sela said. Two guards entered, dragging with them a rather tall man dressed in what appeared to be an admiral's outfit. He certainly looked like a Romulan, but his demeanor suggested otherwise. The man was bound in what looked like simple silver ropes, pinning his arms to his body like a straitjacket. Apparently, he was having difficulty getting himself free.
"So," Sela gloated, "This is the omnipotent Q."
Q tugged at the ropes that had pinned his arms to his sides. He managed to free his hands and forearms, but his shoulders remained bound. "Oh come now, Commander," Q complained, "Is this how you treat all your guests?"
"Only those whom I suspect of treachery," Sela said coldly. "And you are not my guest. You've wo

Points to be considered
"Starship Polaris" takes place in the mainstream Star Trek universe. It features one main line and not the "pocket universe" incorporating the ENT era. I say "pocket universe" because I see ENT that way, being created by Picard's time jump in "First Contact". As "canon" for the past, I accept Masao Okazaki's timeline and starship designs.
In the following timeline, I reckon with the "sliding timeline" used by Trek, that is, modifying dates and events to fit real-world historical occurrenses. Star Trek is fiction, thus creating a fictional historical background different from ours is completely acceptable by me. I try not to contradict elements from the Trek history by creating the "past" of the Polaris-Trekverse. I might make deliberate errors to correct some canonical, though ambigous elements. Also, I attempt to create a history that can explain events such as World War III and the Eugenics Wars, as well as the rapid space explorat

“Hard to port helm. Evasive at your discretion…Tactical, update!”
It was the dream again.
“Shields at 27 per cent Captain. Warp failing, weapons still at 75 per cent.”
Same old dream. In just a second…
“Captain, Dominion battle cruiser…” Yes, there it was. “Bearing 045 mark 022, closing.”
“Helm, what have we got?”
Fuentes checked her board as she always did, dream or no dream. She could no more prevent herself from doing it than stop herself breathing. Scattered before her were far too many amber and red lights, and nowhere near enough green.
“Sluggish but she’ll fight Captain.”
Brave words for a dying ship.
“In that case, tactical stand by for a spread of torpedoes on my mark. Helm, I’ll want this ship to drop like a stone when we fire.”
The history of the TMP refit cycleIn the mid-2260's, the United Federation of Planets and the Klingon Empire were locked in a bitter state of cold war. Following the sole "hot" event of the Four Year War of the previous decade, both interstellar superpowers started a huge military build-up. Starfleet was confident in their new line of starships, headed by the Constitution class and consisting of numerous variants of the same technology, including the destroyer Saladin and the dreadnought Federation. The Klingons relied upon their variants of the D7 class cruiser, a ship that equalled the Constitution class in terms of speed and, more importantly, firepower.The history of the TMP refit cycle3 years ago in Settings More Like This
Both superpowers were also engaged in industrial espionage. Mirroring the history of mid-to-late 20th century Earth, the Federation and the Klingons sent hundreds if not thousands to their enemy's bases to find out military secrets. Espionage led to the Federation reverse-engineering antimatter warhead technology, leading to the development of Starfleet's Mk. I phot
History of the Tzenkethi WarThe history of the Tzenkethi WarHistory of the Tzenkethi War4 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
Some historians consider the Tzenkethi War the Federation's military showoff for the emerging superpower of the Cardassian Union. Others say this small war which ended with a total Federation victory and the humiliation of the proud Tzenkethi race that knew no defeat for uncounted centuries was the continuation of an ages-old conflict within the Federation itself. Thus, it was a proxy war, fought between those who stood for the ideas of the Federation's regime and those who opposed it.
The conflict, they say, began in 2273 AD, when the third starship to bear the name "USS Polaris" (NCC-2782) was dispatched to investigate the war the Tzenkethi fought for the conquest of the Kzinti Patriarchy. Unknown to most of the Federation military, the UE First Fleet starship was tasked with a secret agenda by Leningrad Command: the crew was to help one side to win the war, and whom to support was their choice. The rest is history the crew chose the unknown Tz
The Tribble SongHere's a tribbleThe Tribble Song6 years ago in Science Fiction More Like This
There's a tribble
And another little tribble
Tablet, brick, potato
I was once on a Star Ship
I lived in Uhura's Shirt
But I never saw the way
The orange slayed the red shirt
I was only 3 years dead
But it told a tale
And now listen little child
To McCoy Squeal
Did you ever see a tribble
Kiss a tribble
On the tribbke
Tastes of Tribble
Half a tribble
Twice the tribble
Not a tribble
tribble in a car
Alarm a tribble
Is that how it's told now?
Is it all so old?
Is it made of lemon juice?
Doorknob ankle cold
Now my song is getting thin
I've run out of luck
Time for me to retire now
And become captain of a Star Ship
