TBG Omake: The Academy By The Bay 5 - Cross Cultural Studies

AN: This is an omake fanfic of a Quest (fanfic) called To Boldly Go, based primarily on Star Trek.

Inspired by the recent name vote (where we named our shiny new Enterprise-C!), and the fact that there are indeed canonical Starfleet ships bearing the name USS Equicon and USS Da-Teplan. I thought they sounded rather Gaeni and Qloathi (both OC species), respectively. Also, the canon Equicon is itself named after a series of fan conventions, so it’s a double reference!

TBG Omake - A Computer by Any Other Name

AN: This is an omake fanfic of a Quest (fanfic) called To Boldly Go, based primarily on Star Trek.

This plot bunny bit out of the blue. It's a direct sequel to The Definition of Life. Basically, the in-game reward for the previous omake was to have Mipek and Yanag assigned to the USS Lightning, which is running the experimental testbed for the isolinear computer system before we can roll that out to the fleet. (And as a result, Lightning gets a +1 science stat out of it too.)

Then, I looked over the Q2 logs for the Lightning, and lo and behold, they had a mission to the computer-phobic Arcadian Empire. And so, this fic happened.

Also, I guess I'm starting to fill out the non-Seigaku expies. Though at this point, I'm just using the Tenipuri characters as the basis for coming up with names and rough job/skill profiles. Characterization is not going to be the same since they're not all high school tennis players.

TBG Omake - The Definition of Life

AN: This is an omake fanfic of a Quest (fanfic) called To Boldly Go, based primarily on Star Trek.

Just to say this right off the bat, I wasn’t really aiming for suspenseful court drama for this omake, more fanservice-dressed soapboxing. That said, it also isn't intended to be an in depth essay to defend AI rights. I’m sure there are dissertations worth of that stuff elsewhere on the net. I structured things to be centered more around interesting cameos and the POV they might be able to offer, and what would make sense from an in-universe and in-character perspective.

To give a bit of background, Mipek was an alien probe/AI found by the USS Odyssey, and joined that ship as an observer/crew for Captain Mbeki's last year or so before he retired to go into politics. Since then, it has been living in Sol without problems for 2+ years now. So what changed to suddenly create this conflict? Well, the obvious antagonist was the Daystrom Institute and its record of problems with AI in Trek, and they just happened to have started researching the latest gen of starship computer cores as of the last research vote in-game.

I suppose, in another timeline where they actually brought up the M5 in the court case, this court drama would be an actual drama with the big reveal being DI was trying to revive the M5 program and sneak AIs into starships. And then Vice Admiral Eaton would put her foot down. Here however, they were savvy enough to cut their losses. After all, losing this one research request wouldn't hurt them as much as being kicked off their research spot would have been.

Absent that, this is mainly going to be about Mipek, and whether it gets to be treated as a sapient life form. In light of that (and previous depictions), there wasn't much room for the plot to go. So I ended up picking the fanservice soapbox route. *shrug*

As another aside, I'm proud I managed to sneak "yudan sezu ni ikou" in there for my Tezuka expy. ^_-

Foonotes:

Anthony Haftel is a canon character from TNG. Hopefully he'll learn his lesson here and not try to take away Data's kid in the future. Or maybe he'll come back later as an antagonist when we find Data. Who knows.

Areel Shaw is a canon character from TOS. I flipped a coin to see if she'd be too old to show up. But anyway, the last org chart I saw for the JAG department didn't have many high ranking spots anyway, so I guess most people there just languish at lower ranks or something...

Aaron Satie is yet another canon character from TNG. He was required reading for Picard at the Academy (and that's coming up soon too!) so he should be a famous judge around the current time.

TBG Omake - Academy Extensions: Down the Rabbit Hole

AN: This is an omake fanfic of a Quest (fanfic) called To Boldly Go, based primarily on Star Trek.

Both cadet OCs are Tenipuri expies. I decided not to make it part 5 of The Academy by the Bay series since it doesn't take place in San Francisco, mostly.

TBG Omake: The Academy by the Bay 1

AN: This is an omake fanfic of a Quest (fanfic) called To Boldly Go, based primarily on Star Trek. I've based my OC character on another fandom of course, as it will become more obvious.

Anyway, to understand the background...
- Here is a brief on the Apiata species. I'm using the female pronouns for queens, and neutral pronouns for drones (b/c all da zzzz's).
- Michel Thuir is an official NPC of TBG, first seen as a captain of uncommon good sense at the beginning of the quest, and has since moved up the ranks due to having the favor of the players.

AN: Finally, one step closer to finishing the InuKai series for Psidai... I think... maybe. Anyway, also updated my index while I was at it.

Edit: Echizen tried to sneak into this fic. But then I realized it took place when he wasn't in high school yet, so I kicked him back out again. The brat. -_-||

InuKai tibits...

Firstly, I came across this screencap when skimming through LJ communities. My first thought was "OMG! What is that poster on Inui's wall!" I mean, doesn't it *look* like a certain other character we know who does a lot of arm swinging in shorts and tank top? *cough* My second thought was like "no wonder Inui couldn't invite his kouhai into his bedroom without having to do a LOT of explaining", before I realized that I was thinking of Psidai again.

Speaking of which, note to self: need to update the Psidai homepage with the fics written since the last update.

Secondly, I was referred to this fic. Now, it's not exactly a rec, but the contents of it (written by an author who apparently does know at least a bit of Japanese) seem to suggest just what Inui's Distansu singles was about. Of course, I'm getting the impression that the radio bit at the beginning was Inui getting distracted by a radio advice service giving out advice to a mail from someone pseudo-named 'bandanna' or something. ...And of course my first thought also went to Psidai. That is, the message board monikers. Yeah, we know where my mind's at. :p

And also... MILK?!? WTH? Did Inui come out with a new singles or something? ...and...dedicated to milk. Sang with Kaidoh & Echizen. Er... what's Kaidoh doing in a song about milk... and/or why's Echizen in a InuKai duet? o_O

Rant: What's Wrong With Most HP/YYH Crossovers

I've been on a YYH kick lately, having been watching the anime. I've naturally also been reading the fics on fanfiction.net, and have found several HP/YYH crossovers, including two C2 communities. Some might remember my little mini-rant on the subject some time ago. Well, now that I've much more experience in the genre, and more time for introspection, I thought I'd write up a more coherent analysis of the stereotypes in the genre. And why they suck.

(Note: Potterverse bashing ahead. Consider yourself warned.)

My issues with HP/YYH stereotypes... )

Psidai MtG cards

These aren't really made to be played with the normal MtG cards (except maybe the Unhinged set), which is why a lot of the casting costs are so *broken*. The "doubles" ability is something new I threw in and not actually a MtG ability (that I know of), and it has homebrewn rules to go with it. They'll probably also require different rules for the Lengendary status, though I'm still not quite sure how those work...

Anyways, enjoy the cards. Just don't click the links all at once, 'cuz Geocities is really stingy about bandwidth. Feh.

Seigaku
Hyotei
Rikkai
Fudomine
Other Schools

The pages are all in simple html. They'll probably need to be edited (or not used in lieu of the card urls themselves) if these are to be adapted to the psidai webpage.
