Is that really all I am to you?
What am I saying, you’ve never even bothered to learn my name. I don’t know why I expected anything different.
Yes, Mycroft called me, but that’s not the only reason I came.
You just don’t get it, do you, Sherlock?
I didn’t do this for your brother.

Although all the members of Calypso’s crew had visited a number of different systems, the sight of the Andorian homeworld with its mother planet as a backdrop behind it was a very impressive one. The primary world, Andor, was an enormous blue gas giant with a ring system that rivalled that of Saturn. Andor’s largest moon, Andoria, was an equally beautiful, blue and white globe.
“Entering standard orbit,” Garadun announced as the Class-P world grew very large on the viewscreen and then began to rotate beneath them.
“That’s a hell of a sight,” Jan Koor remarked. “My first time here.”
“For all of us, I believe,” said Nessa, and got nods of confirmation.
“She’s beautiful, that’s for sure,” Cera remarked admiringly from where she sat in the captain’s chair. She glanced at her cousin. “Would you ag

Chapter 21: My Best Friend
Jen woke up in a cold sweat, panting, her eyes wide, looking around wildly, a hand on her stomach. She could still feel the thing that looked like her brother, but wasn't, a concept she still had trouble grasping, taking Alex's knife and plunging it into her skin. She had no scar to prove it, only the bloody outfit she had been wearing that night with the stab wound in the center of her shirt. The fact that everything Alex had told her was true was also a shock. But she was starting to deal with it. Her angelic body guard was pretty cool too. Per Daniel and Alex's request, this other angel named Cas, who was apparently in charge, had assigned Jeremiah, the angel who brought her back from the dead and whose vessel was a teenager, to watch out for her. Daniel, whom she had recently been told was the angel assigned to protect Trea, who was a prophet, and had been using her brother as a vessel, and that she, as his twin, could also be a vessel for him.

The Forgotten Cruiser
From the Starfleet Data Bank
Following the defeat of the Romulan Star Empire at Charon in 2160 (Earth year) and the ultimate success of the small, cheap and reliable Daedalus class starships, Earth was once again secure for exploratory missions. The United Earth Space Probe Agency, mostly known by the acronym of UESPA was given a large percentage of old, war-proven Daedalus class ships to be converted as sience vessels. While the Earth Outposts were erected bordering the freshly estabilished Neutral Zone and Alpha and Beta Quadrant politicans were busy drafting the Constitution of the United Federation of Planets, the science elite of Earth was eager to be assigned to exploratory missions aboard a Daedalus.
Not much after the estabilishment of the United Federation of Planets, skirmishes erupted on the Klingon border. The hostile actions of the Klingons were generally belived as acts of illegal space pirates, however, Andorian strategists pointed out the smiliarit
Vignette - Captain Isabel FuentesVignette - Captain Isabel Fuentes2 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
“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.”

Written for The Delphic Expanse drabble game prompt 'Nose.'
After seven hours of labor, T'Pol gave birth to a healthy baby boy.
Grinning widely, Phlox handed the baby to Trip.
Trip carefully held the bundle in his arms, counted all his fingers and toes, gently stroked the tiny pointed ears, looked into his little face...
And breathed a sigh of relief.
"Trip?" T'Pol asked.
Trip smiled. "He doesn't have my nose."

The AngelThe Angel3 years ago in Visual & Found Poetry More Like This
I once saw an Angel
With hair as gold as the Sun
With skin as pale as snow
And wings as high as mountains
But that wasn't what I first saw
About this beautiful Angel
It was her eyes
As red as pure blood
And as deep as oceans
Her eyes caught my attention
I didn't even need or want
To look at the colour of her wings
Because I already knew what she was
And what she had become
I never thought I'd see
One of her kind again
Ever since I last saw
My long lost distant love
Seeing this beautiful Angel
Brought tears to my eyes
Because I already knew what she was
And what she had become
A Fallen Angel lives again

There it lies before me. Silently criticising me. Mocking me. Motionless. An orb. Large. Round. And very. Very. Blue.
This is not the first time I have come face to face with this foe. Nor will it be the last. Soon I shall annihilate him! And the safety of humanity will fall upon me. Tiddle's the superior!
Well what did you think I was going to say? Do you really think there are such things as super heroes? Don't be silly! Kittens however. We exist. Sadly not all of us have homes and we are forced to roam the streets, keeping those nasty rodents and their diseases at bay. Sadly, though, your human minds do not see us as the reliable cleaners we are, you see us on the streets and assume we are worthless or broken.
However, back to the orb. I'm not allowed to touch the orb. O

I blink as I materialize in a dark storage bay. In front of me there are two Remans bending over the computer console I need to get to. Unfortunately I can not use my disruptor as it would set off alarms. Quietly, like the silent huntress I'm pretending to be, I withdraw my honor-blade. Silently, I slip up behind the guards. Suddenly I reach up and twist his neck quickly, violently, just as I have been trained. There is a loud crack and I feel the bones of his neck pop beneath my hands. I pull back in mild shock feeling the fire of passion pumping through my veins.
The other guard spins on my suddenly like a cat. He's the first Reman I have ever seen in person. They are truly hideous creatures with mottled grey skin, sunken eyes, elongated ears, and protruding teeth. The lumbering creature attacks swifter than I expected but I still avoid the blow.

Rush of a night.
Heart thudding in my chest
Wheezing breaths in my ear.
Gut renching humility.
Just be quiet.
The hugs and kisses
Those eyes would never lie.
The suffocating hugs
The all too familiar guilt
Those cold piercing eyes.
Gifts from me,
Kisses from me,
Sex from me.
I love him
I need him
Gifts from me on the porch
Scars a permanent reminder
Knowing i'm carrying his seed.

Earth was a cold world now, it's sun dragged through an immense folded space gateway to the Venrash sector of unexplored space. James Logan had arrived to late to warn them, the homeworld had fallen. Perhaps if he could find a way to open the gateway, he could at least find out why. The small Cerilian class freighter exited from hyperspace and came to a dead stop several thousand kilometers above the surface of Earth and its desolate frozen wasteland. His instrument panel showed what he already knew, no lifesigns, no transmissions, nothing had survived. “This is James Logan, captain of the E.A.V. Denver to any other vessel, please respond.” Jim tried for several minutes and then closed the communications panel. He set a course for the gateway that had helped destroy his homeworld. The Cerilian class heavy fighter had been modified by James over several years. Usually crewed by five personnel, he had decided to install an A.I and use the leftover s
