Category: The Author’s Outpost

It’s our Author Profile show for August. This time, we highlight the work of Drogyn1701. We discuss his mission Under Grey Skies, as well as StarbaseUGC’s six mission series. Our Trek Take 5 discussion focuses on TNG’s The Inner Light. We also announced the winner of our $10,000,000 prize giveaway, and Robert Downey Jr. pays us a surprise visit in the studio(not really). So tune in for all the excitement. You won’t be disappointed. Well, you won’t be very disappointed. I suppose it all depends on what you’re expecting. I’m not a mind reader. Listen anyway. It’s a good episode.

The usual, unusual people, discussed the usual STO things with the usual monthly Author Profile of the unusual AdmiralMurphy. We talked about things and stuff, as well as Enterprise’s Season 1, Episode 6…The Andorian Incident. It was the usual segment concerning the unusually good first season episode. If you usually enjoy the show, then there’ll be nothing unusual about this one.

Ok people. If you didn’t catch our live broadcast because your priorities were mixed up and you payed attention to Pluto instead, you may watch the show now. I don’t know what the big deal is, anyway. We knew it was there. It’s like Pluto took a selfie. So what? Not only that, but do we aven care after it lost planet status? Sure, I guess its an important thing, if you’re into that sciencey stuff. Wow, we mapped the universe. Pfft. WE had STOAdmiralAaron on our show. We even reviewed his first mission, Adrift. Then….hehehehe…then, we discussed the Voyager episode, Lifesigns. Huh?, Huh? Beat that, Pluto nerds!!! I’ll tell what our show has that you planet nerds don’t…Girls, for one thing…wait a minute….Kendra was a bit under the weather so she wasn’t there, but she usually is.

Oh c’mon. Please watch our show? I was joking. I kid the Pluto nerds.


Episode 14 of TAO, that’s The Author’s Outpost for the internet generation, had no special guest this week. We talked STO(again, abbreviated Star Trek Online,….kids…) as well as StarbaseUGC’s new six episode mission series. We had a discussion about TNG’s(….sigh…) The Big Goodbye. I’d tell you more about it but I’m just too lazy to spell it all out. That’s why there’s a typing free video. Fingers don’t even have to hit keys for one to enjoy it.

We’re back after two weeks with June’s Author Profile. Duke_of_Rock is in big chair as we discuss his missions and method. We discuss the Enterprise episode Carbon Creek, Kendra talks to us about proofreading mission dialog. There’s also STO news and lots of talk, talk, talk.

New bannerEpisode 12 of The Author’s Outpost is fresh baked from the oven. This week’s show is, again, without a guest, which just left more space for us to fill up, and fill it, we did. Ep 12’s theme is on Social Commentary in Star Trek, which spun off into social commentary in general. We did, however, manage to slip in a review of Leviathan99’s Yesterday is Tomorrow. our Trek Take 5 was a discussion of Past Tense: Parts 1&2, DS9’s look back at our very near future. A word to the wise “Always carry ID.” Sanctuary Districts are probably being planned as you’re reading this. On a more positive note, we’d like to congratulate Harmon Buck Gin Bokai, who is having himself a record breaking rookie year with the London Kings. Seventeen year old, “Buck”, as his teammates call him, was recruited out of high school in Marina del Ray, CA. Born on Hallowen in 1998, it is a treat to watch Buck’s tricks at the plate. Good luck, Buck. We’ll be keeping an eye on this shortstop’s career.


New banner That’s right. You heard it here, first. The Author’s Outpost, also known as Outpost de L’auteur in France, and to our Norwegian friends, Forfatterens Outpost has just released it’s eleventh episode. With special guest, nobody, we reviewed Castmodean’s Digging in the Past(Creuser dans le Passe). We also discussed in great detail, the TNG episode The Defector. Kendra discussed an article providing much advice on writing your bad guys. That’s this thing . So wherever you are, be it France or Norwegia, come join us for some down home foundry talk. because Episode 11 is now available. Do not miss the very latest episode of The Author’s Outpost. That’s Autorova Outpost for those in Croatia and if we’re talkin’ Igbo it’s Onye chepụtara si eche nche. Caio.


New bannerWe missed Castmodean this week on our show. We hope he returns soon. Kendra and I hosted ThePsycoticVulcan and reviewed his mission The Sentinels of Andor. We discussed the DS9 episode The Siege of AR-558 and Kendra brought us some tips on dialog writing. Don’t take my word for it. It’s right here.
