This is Annette from the Wikia team. We have an idea we're planning that we would love to host on Memory Gamma, and we wanted to run the idea by you guys first and get some feedback before kicking it off.
We're hoping to generate more interest on Wikia for all things Star Trek, timed with the release of Into Darkness. We're planning a program that invites users to create the ultimate food and drink banquet menu for five different Star Trek races from the Star Trek canon. The narrative around the program would be that Neelix is preparing a meal for all of these races, and we are helping him decide which would be an iconic dish for each race.
The program will be part of our Food Fiction series, which we've done it elsewhere on Wiki…Read more >
I have two main ideas I'd like to do for some future Trek fanfics.
The first, which I had intended to start here on my last account, is a series called Star Trek: For Hire. Unlike conventional Trek shows and storylines, this one would follow a number of misfits; a ratty ship of mercenaries, Starfleet fallouts, and lonesome wanderers, all looking for work in an increasingly bureaucratic Federation universe. In short, it starts out like Firefly tacked onto Trek, except with original characters and situations. I say "starts out" because the first "episode" takes them somewhere very unexpected...
The second, which is similar but even more radical a departure, would be called Star Trek: Promenade. The idea for this one is that it revolves around me…Read more >
I was previously here under the name ChucklesMcTruck, and then a lot of life happened. I got away from writing for over a year, and lost the email account associated with that name, so I had to start from a new account. Que sera sera.
Now, I'm looking to do some creative writing again, and a collaberative wiki site seemed like a good jumping-in point. I remembered the stuff I started here, meaning to go much further, and poof! Here I am again.
Hopefully this won't fizzle out like the last one did.Read more >
Hello I'm new here and I was wondering if anyone knew or knows about any free programs that can be used to design Starships. Since I'm new to most things about Star Trek like the technology and a lot of the events (I play Star Trek Online), so I mostly make ship classes, but I have nothing that could make the ship. All I would need is a program that would help me draw the ship from a side view and a top-down view, and most importantly it has to be FreeRead more >
- THIS BLOG POST IS A WORK IN PROGRESS!!!
The wonderful world of Star Trek was conceived in the mind of a brilliant, progressive thinker a great-many decades ago, and since, has captivated our imaginations. I think we can all agree that the franchise was very advanced for its time, during the mid-to-later half of the twentieth century. In the modern era, however, someone who actively follows the latest avancements in scientific fields such as cosmology and genetics can't help but to look back question their favorite series. A fan fiction author might wonder how he or she is supposed to be inspired by such a series, that when tested against modern knowledge, falls short, even if not by much. If you know what I'm talking about, I'm sure you too …Read more >
Hi I'm Starfleet Academy and this is my opinion of the intrepid class' landing-gear (undercarriage). I would like to state that I love the intrepid class and it is probably my second favorite starship.
Firstly you have to know what it looks like in action. If you don't "ImperialCommander" has extrated this short from the Voyager episode "The 37's": see Youtube video.
Basic problems These are the probs I see with such a system. Firstly I thought that how could a 700,000 tonne starship land on four legs... that's 175,000 tonnes on each leg! But working it out gives roughly 19,444 tonnes per square meter. Thinking that this would go through the soil layer on most planets, I have tried to create a different system to take the weight of the ship. …

Well, I'm back for now. Fortunately, the stalking issue is done. Unfortunately, things aren't going well. Still out of ideas, now hounded day and night by trolls on YouTube who love Slayer, Dio and Iron Maiden and hate everything from God to Metallica and beyond, and with family dire straits, right now its not a good time.
So in disgrace returns the Author

sigh... I can't take this anymore! I have so much going on, and now the Klingons want to get involved now that Beta Thauron II is up and running! God, I swear, I feel like-- *beep beep*
It's from Starfleet. Gotta take this. Gotta go. Until next time... *sigh*

I am taking a leave of absence - or at least will attempt to take one - from wikia-related sites due to being stalked on the vampire-wiki. Please do not delete Star Trek: Conflict and its related pages. Also, do not let User:TyphussJediVader vandalize or delete Star Trek: Conflict and its related pages, for he will surely do so because I have brought his lascivitiousness to light and, not liking his faults to be made public, will move against me in my absence.
I remain yours, The AuthorRead more >
Well, in this great cleaning that is on-going, a lot of pages have been marked for deletion...some of them mine. I don't have a lot of information on those pages because that's about all I can put! If you want to delete them, then my story will be incomplete....
Fine, it's not the first time people have undermined my work!

I just recently learned that the word "evil" is a religious word. Example, when you are saying, for example, terrorists are evil, you're saying that they are agents of the devil, instead of just doing things criminal. Since the Klingons don't have a devil, and I've heard them say that people are "evil", so there is no meaning for the word "evil" in any Klingon-related thing. Then they should just say that before the Khitomer accords, the United Federation of Planets was bad, and criminal, NOT "evil."Read more >
Well, I have Star Trek on blu-ray. It comes with a digital copy that I can play on the computer. I was thinking of getting screencaps for us. Unfortunately, there is a glitch and it won't let me play it. I also can't reinstall the digital copy because of Paramount Security. Does anybody have any idea how I can?Read more >
Well, the internet is surely big indeed. A while ago, I created a YouTube account for Memory Gamma -- no I'm not creating videos -- mainly it's for the videos about Star Trek fan fiction and other great Trek videos out there on YouTube. Another place is Twitter, I think it's a better place for MG news, but I will still use here. MG currently follows TrekMovie, TrekCore, Mythbusters, and a few others on Twitter, so I hope you join one of them, if not both.
Here are the links to the official places of Memory Gamma that are also available in the sidebar to your left:
The second part of ST: Endeavor is complete. You can read it here. Now for my second part of the Expedition snippet. Here is the Executive Officer, Brian Warner.
I'm also releasing that the Excalibur is coming upon new Galaxy-warp technology. So wait and see which galaxy they end up going!Read more >
Why do we waste phasers, photon and quantum torpedoes when, in reality, the Borg can be destroyed with water? Why waste all of our military efforts? It's like the game chula!Read more >

There have been a lot of people on Memory Gamma who say that I have simply abandon what Star Trek really is. They say that Gene Roddenberry was an atheist---he was. Trust me, I absolutely love Gene's work on Star Trek and Star Trek: The Next Generation, and I'm not trying to destroy it. So I do respect him and his work. Some of Gene's ideas may be flawed and merely fantasy, but I LOVE the idea of a whole crew spending life aboard a starship, exploring stars and nebulas. So what's flawed and merely fantasy? His atheistic views. Now I don't mind that much Gene was an atheist, what I mind is his view of religion and faith. How in the world did Gene think that religion could be absolutely destroyed---it's not logical. Now with over population …Read more >
This will be my 1st official blog for Memory Gamma so I must carefully choose my words carefully (also my browsers spell check doesn't hurt either) but recently Ive really been getting into Dystopian fiction and films. Actually ive been watching these sort of media for a while Ive been looking more into it after purchasing a copy of 1984 and began growing a small fascination with the concepts of Utopian and Dystopian societies and none other then Star Trek and Memory Gamma itself is an better example for both of these concepts. Lets look at a comparison of both forms of society within Trek Canon and fanon.
1st lets start with...
- 1 1. Utopia
- 2 2. Dystopia
- 2.1 Orwellian
- 2.2 Star Trek: Conflict Randian
- 2.3 Mirror universe Roddenberryian

- My new series Star Trek: Endeavor has launched about a month or two back, I'd like to say that the first chapter The Wormhole is finished. I hope you take a look at what is to come later.
- And I've also promised a new picture or something to my next series, (Which I would like to announce is named Star Trek: Expedition.) It takes place in the 25th century in an alternate timeline (recurring pattern?) where the Cold War broke out into a devastating war. The only way to get out is to look up at the stars and make your way there. The United Planets of America was made. Here one of the many main characters, Mrs. Tana sh'Elaith, Captain of the Excalibur.
Note: I did not make the image. An-gel Sakura on Trek Photomanipulation Archive did.Read more >
On June 25th, 2009, Michael Jackson died of cardiac arrest. Ever since this date, the "king of pop" has become revered by people all over the world. Because of his death, all derogatory or satirical references to Michael Jackson (based on his appearance or alleged child-sexual-abuse) have become tabooed (presumably) forever.
Don't believe? Here's proof:
The film Scary Movie 4, and its predecessor 3, have had parodies of Michael Jackson. In the 4th installation, there is a scene where, after the children around him are herded away, Jackson is melted by a death-ray from the invading aliens. On September 27th, Scary Movie 4 was playing on Comedy Central...and Michael Jackson's "death" was completely cut out.
Here's another one...

Anyone who has seen TOS' "The Menagerie" will recall the fact that Orion women were freely traded as slaves and that this was known in the Federation, as Christopher Pike considered going into the business (economy and commerce will be in a different blog).
In the United States of America, slavery is believed to be a thing ended in the 19th Century: now although certain forms of slavery do exist in the US, not to mention true slavery in other parts of the world, it is true that slavery as a legal, publicized practice in the US is dead.
According to all that is preached about the Federation, it is apparently the savior for all creatures...so why is there still slavery? Oh yes, people can assume that, by the time of TNG, slave trade is gone an…Read more >
That was the question I asked myself when I began to delve seriously into Star Trek canon as I began writing the first draft that would become Star Trek: Conflict. Originally, I had intended to make it, like all Star Treks, a social commentary on our current position: I originally wanted to have a race of aliens who were fanatically religious to declare a "holy war" on the Federation. However, I soon discovered that this could not be an adequate commentary since the Federation abolished all of Earth's religions, and a social commentary of this kind would destroy my purpose since it would be pitting a fanatically religious alien race against atheism, which would only cause people to hate religion all the more.
So I decided to restructure my st…Read more >
I have a project coming up after Star Trek Endeavor. I won't give out little bits of information every time I start a new episode on Endeavor. Since I've started The Wormhole I am going to give you this image:Read more >
If you died tomorrow, how will you be remembered? What's going to matter? You won't be remembered by how much money you have, the car you have, the job you have, the friends you have, or the house you have. The only thing that you will be remembered by is your love, your kids, and your Salvation. Why not try to live for something more?Read more >
Even though I've had this story plot for about two years for now. I found that I don't have enough time to contribute to it. I will keep writing on MG, just not an entire series until later. Alpha Team, though will continue until finished, but has been hard since my computer deletes all my changes every time I shut down. I will start a miniseries as soon as Alpha Team is finished, a different format too. It will take place a month after the new movie, will takes place on a runabout-escort hybrid. It only has a crew of seven, and having sent to a new galaxy, along with a small task force, they have problems in the Ticona galaxy, known here, the Sombrero galaxy.Read more >

A Project that was thought out on Sunday, the new four-part miniseries, Star Trek: Alpha Team is about Christian Research Contract Academy students. It starts with just one simulation team, the Alpha Team, they have a test mission that goes wrong and they get captured by the Tensus Syndicate. Read the exciting Part 1 now!Read more >
Well, today I have finished Chapter 7 of OAKE and inserted it onto the right page on here. I have also been writing the next few parts, but I want to keep you all in suspense for the time being... :) Suffice it to say, when I get creative there's no stopping me. That's once I start, anyway. I am hoping now to write a chapter of OAKE each day, so I should be finished within the next month or so. The key word being "should".
As for "Tales of the Unknown", I will just leave that for a few days until I'm back into the swing of OAKE, then I can try writing both concurrently. The only thing I'm really lacking is enough free time as I am working full weeks at the moment, but I handwrote two A4 pages today whilst at work, so anything is possible. …Read more >
I've written a blurb for the eighth book (when it eventually comes), and it involves the Tholians. I was wondering what the Tholian homeworld of Tholia must be like, and set upon an idea. I looked around to see if there was any other information on Tholia, fan fiction wise or on other Trek sites, and came up with very little. Now all I need to do is finish the first book so I can get on with the rest...Read more >
Well, today is just like every other this week,
The new idea for today is in response to a 8-year old kid showing off his poke-mon collection - ew
interesting side note here, this was one of the few ideas my brother actually helped out with
- Klingon Dragon
- 20m long
- 70 tons
- Steel/Psychic Type + Dragon/Flying
- Max Stats
- 2 Attacks:
- (Organic Speck) Cannons
- <a href="/index.php?title=Wyrqux">Wryqux</a> Missile
Oh, I had the pleasure of being chased around the gym by groups of kids @ VBS tonight, very tiring - but FUNRead more >
Personal note: finished Every Young Man's Battle Chapter 5
- Klingon Dragon
Well, I really don't know what to say about this. Had a couple of ideas but don't know where to put them so:
- The Wyrqux are actually a symbiotic off-shoot of a super-suit and the hybrid described in the article, meaning that there is no other races because there are no other super-suits
- The most kick-but gun ever:
- 3.3 Mil rounds per minute [muzzle is 3 x 7-barreled guns with Metal Storm components]
- 4 different ammo size feeds, simultaneously(including guided ammo)
- Mach 7 muzzle velocity [specialized powder + rocket bullets + rail-gun accelerators]
- 500,000 times thermal sniper scope [has spy satellite uplink]
- a positively ginormous internal clip
- and your standard ball-point pen is harder to conceal than this
- No magnetic, radio, thermal, s…

I was watching those two videos that Bookworm made about Star Trek history and thought that they were well thought out. So I just wanted to talk about the two videos. I believe from every single country ever constructed and formed, that religion plays a MAJOR part in the country's success. No one seems to learn from history, when the Roman Empire was a flourishing civilization and then began to stop holding up to their beliefs, they began to fall. The same thing can be seen in America today. I live in America, and I hate to say this, but I know that religion in America is degrading and in very small steps, beginning to become just a little "side note". The Bible says that when a country believes in God really well, that the country will ho…Read more >

Well, I am still in the process of writing "On a Knife Edge", but I have been trying to develop my second series, Tales of the Unknown and it is coming along nicely. It will be very different to the norm, as it takes place somewhere not many people have written about (more to be revealed later!).Read more >
