When he hears Obi-Wan call Qui-Gon Master, it is as if the ship has lurched beneath him; he has been terribly nowhat slaver would go through such an elaborate ruse to capture one boy, even a top racer? And he can sense the rightness, as surely as if he were beholding the wonders of the Jedi Temple already. (He is not sure what those wonders are, as mostly when he imagined Jedi they were flying or fighting, but right now the air seems as imbued with promise as with oxygen.)
So he assesses Obi-Wan again, and sees a man younger, less scarred, than Qui-Gons example had lead him to imagine Jedi to be; were he raised in Mos Espa, Anakin thought, Obi-Wan would be...what? A gambler, a farmer, a vagrant? He does not seem to fit any of those molds. On Tatooine, anyone with such...such a shy sort of politeness, paired with the authority and skill shown by the fact he carried a lightsaber, would be left alone.

Note: Due to the high number of shots described in this game I suggest maybe just sipping a beer to each of this or have an array of things to eat and drink (non-alcoholic) for each “shot”.
1. Every time someone screams, take a shot.
2. Every time someone says “Space Marines” take a shot.
3. Every time they talk about chaos take a shot.
4. Every time you see or hear “Know No Fear” take a shot.
5. Every time the standard lights with that funky fire, take a shot.
6. Every time death is referenced take a shot.

Something to Hold OntoAtton was leaning back against a wall at the entrance to one of Nar Shaddaa's innumerable and crowded alleyways with his arms crossed across his chest and his eyes half closed. To the casual observer he appeared to be just another bored spacer, lounging around and waiting for... something. Unfortunately for him, he wasn't having to work too hard to make his affectation believable. He almost wished that the seedy looking Exchange thug that kept eyeing him would pick a fight just so he could add some excitement to his day.Something to Hold Onto6 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
She owes me for this, he thought to himself, mentally adding this outing to the growing tally of favors owed to him by the Jedi Exile. He couldn't stop from grinning as he pictured his plan of collecting on the debt involving a bottle of juma and Lilli in that little dancer's outfit.
Yeah, well you won't collect on anything if you don't pay attention, his voice of reason cut in, reminding him that he was supposed to be watching out for any trouble that th

Directly in their path
His blade raised high
Strong and unyielding he stands
A pillar of strength
Illuminated by the force
Flowing through his every muscle
As they approach he firmly says
'None shall pass'
They keep coming
One after the next
Thousands of warriors
Ever ready to send him to his fate
And yet he holds fast
'None shall pass'
Time fades into eternity
Any moment could be his last
But this right here
This was who he was
Standing in the corridor of his destiny
Everything leading up to this
Never faltering, never wavering
'None shall pass'
The end or the beginning
It makes no difference to him
He is both here and nowhere
The energy passing through him
It has become him
Fully aware and yet distant
He knows only his purpose
'None shall pass'
As his burning light fades away
He does not fail
As his breath escapes his lips
Forever burning in his lungs
A single thought takes him away
Becoming one with the force
He burns the words li
The Thing in the AquariumI have always enjoyed aquariums. There are few things more relaxing than looking at brightly coloured fish as they move gracefully through their tanks. There is so much beauty in the depths of the oceans. Yet it was in an aquarium that I saw the most terrifying and disturbing sight of my life, a sight that revealed to me the madness that lies so close to the world we inhabit.The Thing in the Aquarium2 years ago in Horror More Like This
I was on holiday in a town on the south coast, not far from Brighton. Though it was summer, the weather was atrocious and spending any time outdoors was imprudent. Of course our English seaside towns cater well for all weather patterns and there were plenty of things to do out of the rain. Among these was a visit to the small aquarium.
I have visited many aquariums and I have been scuba diving in several tropical reefs. I count myself as having a reasonable amateur knowledge of marine biology. Yet I was struck by how many species in this aquarium I did not recognise. Many of the specimens in the tanks had an oddly

My security office is the tidiest place on the entire station. No offense to the Starfleet officers in OPS, but sometimes, the sense for order gets lost up there. I know how to keep myself busy without causing a mess. Even on quiet days, as rare as they are. Sometimes, I just sit here and watch the promenade through my door. Study people, analyze them, memorize certain ways of moving or body language. It can be extremly helpful in criminal investigations to know such routines. Humanoids are not all alike; different species give away lies and half truths differently. Bolians never really blush, for example, while it only takes a strategically placed comment about a suspected white lie to make a Kobheerian blush pink and confess crimes he only heard about.
There is only one thing all humanoids have in common. They all remind me that I am not like them. That all I can do is immitate them, act like them, talk like

Yes, Captain. Spock nodded. His thoughts are chaotic, unreadable, and above all highly emotional.
Is this sort of mental breakdown common among Vulcans? Bones asked.
It is completely unheard of. Since I can not understand his thoughts it is impossible to tell what drove him to this extreme.
What are all the possible causes?
The main suspects would be: disease, radiation poisoning, or some form of extreme torture.
Torture? Bones asked in alarm.
By the time you have gone far enough to break a Vulcan they are truly broken and no use to any one. Spock replied calmly. It is not a logical use of time, but perhaps someone who h

It had been two weeks since Spock's one man take over of the USS Independence. They had done all they could for the ship and she had headed back to Earth alone. After finishing up with the class K planet they were now heading through the vastness of space towards a peace treaty signing between to waring worlds that the Federation had agreed to mediate.
Kirk sat in the Captain's chair staring out the front view screen at the stars that slowly moved past them. It was around shift change time, but he had no intention of leaving the bridge. It wasn't that the Enterprise needed him sitting here, he simply didn't have anywhere better on the ship to be. He glanced over at the empty spot where Spock was usually staring at the sensors.
I hate mediations. Kirk muttered to himself. Mr. Sulu, is there anyway we can get there sooner? Quicker we get there,
Loss of ControlJagged Fel rushed to unstrap himself from his sim seat. He had just taken out the last Rogue and wanted to see who it was. It wasn't Rogue Lead, Darklghter was the second to last Rogue to get killed. Darklighter flew with an obvious style; decades of experience coupled with a hard grace. No, the last Rogue seemed fairly inexperienced. Whoever he was, he flew with an astounding amount of raw talent. What's more, he learned quickly and could make his X-wing dance. With a little more experience, he could even shoot me down. That Rogue had won Jagged's respect from flying alone, which was a difficult thing to do. No one else had managed it.Loss of Control6 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This

Retching violently Spock spat bright yellow bile into the sink. When he felt he had control over his stomach once again he turned the water on to cold. After washing his face he buried it in a towel. Taking a deep breath Spock concentrated on stopping the trembling in his hands, but nothing could be done for it.
It is still a reasonable trade. Spock muttered to himself.
The Vulandin drug gave him the reins on his emotions once again. The price he was paying for mental control was a disabling physical sickness. Exhausted from the mostly unproductive heaving Spock walked back over to the bed and sat down. He stared at the far wall and contemplated his options.
There was no point in further demanding to be returned to the Enterprise. Although time was difficult to determine between the sunless room and the frequent black outs Spock assumed that at lea

I ran through the decompressing corridors, through cold, and fire, I shouldered my way through those doors that would allow it, and used the Force to rip those that would not, from their runners. She can't be gone, she can't be. She's mandokarla, she's proven that time and again. Tough, atin, resourceful, if anyone can make it through, it's her. I berate myself for thinking the worst, even though the logical part of my brain is telling me it's right to prepare. Logic be damned. Either we both leave alive, or neither of us do. Another explosion rocks the ship, not long now. Something strange was happening, maybe it was the lack of oxygen I was getting into my bucket, or maybe the gravity generator had ramped up with the last explosion, but it felt like I was running through syrup, every step getting harder. I rip a compartment door free, and there she is, the O2 level on her bottle was bottoming. I steadied myself in the Force, took half a breath in, then held on, ripping my bott

Youre not an intern any more, and the ship is not in a state of emergency.

Oh, well if you mean physically: she has a subluxed right shoulder, her wrist is broken in three places, laceration to the lower lip, and a deep bruise over her left temple with a small fracture in the superior orbital region of the frontal bone.
Kirk closed his eyes and pinched the bridge of his nose. He listened to the list of Uhura's injuries in complete disbelief. It was like a nightmare, and he expected to wake from it at any minute. When McCoy reached out and put his hand on his shoulder Kirk realized that he wasn't going to be waking up in a cold sweat anytime soon.

Uhura walked silently next to Spock as they made their way back to their quarters. The Captain had first requested that Spock report to sick bay and stay there. When Spock refused he came close to making it an order. Making his feelings clear Spock announced that he would resign from Star Fleet if that was what it was going to take to keep from being confined to a hospital bed. Kirk had back down, but only because he knew he couldnt win.
Spock had stopped into medical long enough to clean the blood from his face and check on Saavik. The other half Vulcan was not doing well and even locked in sleep she whimpered and fought for every breath. It didnt escape Uhuras notice the way that McCoy hovered over Saavik.

Making his way through the ship he quickly came to his First Officer's quarters. Kirk swiped his hand across the plate that would announce that he was standing outside.
Come. Spock replied from inside.
Kirk stepped into the room and glanced around at the odd mixture of Vulcan and African décor. Spock was sitting at his desk with the fingertips of each hand gently touching one another, a sure sign that he had been deep in thought when Kirk had disturbed him. Walking over to the desk Kirk sat on it casually, forgetting how much it irritated Spock to have his furniture used in a manner other than it was intended.

Looking down at the cat Uhura caught sight of her wedding band. The metal had been a dull lead colour for so long that she was startled to see it shining a bright silver. As she stared at the metal it increased its luster and began to deepen into gold. She was so fascinated by the change that she didnt even hear the door opening.

Spock woke to an unfamiliar sensation, one he did not find pleasant. Bones would have diagnosed it as a headache. Swallowing against a dry throat he tried to organize his thoughts. The differences between reality and nightmare had started to blur lately. Spock slowly opened his eyes and closed them tightly against the painfully bright light.
Quiet nosies that he couldn't identify mixed with an incoherent muttering that was barely above a whisper assaulted his hearing and caused his blood to flash to ice as fear suddenly lanced through his laboring heart. Irritated by the illogical anxiety Spock ground his teeth together. Realizing that the motion only caused his irritation to escalate into near fury he struggled to control his emotional swings through meditation.
A slow deep breath brought warm air into his lungs, air far warmer than any found on the Enterprise.

Pacing forward since I did not recognize his uniform,

After fighting a war along their side,
Their positions of peace only a lie,

A young Jedi cut through a trooper's arm, another's leg, my rifle..then MY chest.

My men charging forward shooting him from his toes,
Down he fell ...much like all the rest.

Silence except for the breath in my helmet,
