Yeah, Halley, I was wondering when someone was going to mention him. I know Andy has him incorporated in Genesis, but I haven't even considered him in TROM or ROTDW. I guess my own take was that Halley's essence had merged with Lamia's at the cosmic alignment and so I've been treating them as one being with Lamia's voice and the F01's (which is colder and more to the point due to the subtle influence of Halley) taking it in turns, although this has only been briefly hinted at so far.Personally as a viewer I'd always thought that was it for Halley. He made a sacrifice at the end of the series, with maybe only an abstract portion of his personality remaining within the F01. Now that I'm actually writing the story though, and linking with all the other fanfics, it seems like I should address the Halley situation especially when Lamia returns to the physical realm. I'm going to have to have a think though; it'll probably be a very subtle reference, so as not to rock the continuity boat. I can always have him on an 'off camera mission' if Halley is required for future fanfics. Any ideas?That's a really plausible explanation for how The Great Skull can travel through time and space. I like it! I'd definitely incorporate that as it plays a part in The Great Skull's duel with Makara. It would be ideal to have the dark matter as part of the power core of the ship, with The Great Skull's symbionts as the triggering mechanism for each space/time jumpI originally have The Great Skull as a 'renaissance man' who lived on The Great Skull World (really really does need a name ). He was a great fighter, fine artist and superb inventor. He builds a time ship, but his contemporaries mock him. On his maiden flight, with your dark matter installed, he is unable to space/time jump. Humiliated and dejected he leaves The Great Skull world. Not long after when he is alone amongst the stars, his ship automatically jumps into the early Star Fleet universe. He has been drawn there by the 7 pure ancient spirits who possess him and turn him into, what people would come to refer to as, The Great Skull.I have Lamia/F01 and The Imperial Master only able to create warp gates in Sargasso (an area of space where I'm using a bit of artistic licence, will start a thread on this as the tv show has some very odd logic), and I've limited her powers to only the Star Fleet universe, just for the sake of my plot, but there's no reason why she can't be more powerful in future fanfics.With your ideas based on scientific principles there's no reason why in a few years there isn't a new breed of Star Fleet vessels with time jump capability. I smell a time travelling Steam punk X-Bomber spin off. Loving how hard science is being weaved into all of this fantasy. I'm actually learning things.
I like parties, I like fun, I want to live in a hamburger bun!
