Trying to find a particular Star Trek fanfic

Postby edaw1982 » 2012-05-05 07:45am

Apologies if this has already been brought up, but I am trying to find a Fanfic series of Star Trek (TOS), done in a more serious "NBSG" style reboot.

Gary Sinese as McCoy, for example and Sulu was an NCO (because officers don't actually fly the ships in the real military), no transporters and I *think* they (atleast Starfleet) used ballistic weapons.

I was wondering if anyone knows where to find this series.

In real militaries it is usually officers who pilot the ships (or fly the planes).
TVWP: "Janeway says archly, "Sometimes it's the female of the species that initiates mating." Is the female of the species trying to initiate mating now? Janeway accepts Paris's apology and tells him she's putting him in for a commendation. The salamander sex was that good."

This doesn't help in the least.
Still, I'll reply back anywho.

Also, in the Navy (or atleast the New Zealand, Australian, and American ones..) the Captain/Commander/Whoever-is-on-duty-at-that-time gives the order to go somewhere, to the Officer of the Watch (Some Lieutenant Usually), who gives the order to the Helmsman who is an Enlisted sailor.
The order-conga is a safeguard so somebody doesn't mis-hear an order and whoopsie daisy.

Sure, in the Airforce the Officers pilot the planes, but that's because it's Airforce tradition (even though there used to be Pilot-Sergeants....), whereas in the Navy the tradition is officers are not supposed to pilot the ship (I'm sure they could if need be but just as a General is not supposed to galavant around playing Lieutenant...if they can still do it, good on them; but it tends to raise eyebrows at the very least (probably makes people antsy too).

Unrestricted Line Officers (the 'Yellow Shirts' to use the TOS parlance) are the ones who stand watch and give orders, being groomed eventually for Captaincy of their own (or at least Division Chief or maybe even Executive Officer if they make it even that far).

And, I don't know why that is. Probably so Officers can learn to Command properly rather than leading (which requires a different mentality altogether), but I'm sure someone with Navy experience can explain the whys and wherefores altogether
