Okay, I have been to this site where it's an actual script for The Next Generation written by a fan that has a star wars crossover involved as the main plot. I can't find it in my favorites, and I just wanted to know if anyone else has seen this page and if so, can I have the url?

Also, I'd like to see Mike Wong write another fanfic. Does anyone know if he plans to make another?

Naa his first one was pretty Mediocer to being with (No Offense Wong but thats a Degree is not in English Lit :D)
Heck I've been kiciking around the idea of right one myself for awhile but then I think I'm a touch to mental biased towards SW thanks to the numbers I found after I discovered Wongs website(When you have 100x the power needed to Destroy a ship its a little hard to imagin a fair fight)

I had tossed around a Q throws a planet and ISD into The Alpha Quadren and Voyager just happens to be passing and the ISD blows it to hell(Of course this is every ST fans dream :D, Voyager being destoryed that is) but they get a warning message off
That might turn somthing intresting

Also a blind jump by a damaged ISD hits a weird INSERT HALF PAGE OF TECNOBABLE TO EXPLAN HOW IT ENDS UP IN ST UNIVERS HERE and thus finds itself at odds

I had a few other ideas if anyone carses to here

I'd like to see your degree in English Lit if you're going to "right" a fanfic on something. I also am very surprised you thought that Wong's (note the apostrophe, it's that little key next to the enter and above the question mark) fanfic was mediocre. I thought that it could have been better, granted, but I also thought that the ending was extremely strong (if a bit too predictable.) I can safely say that no fanfiction based on either plot you describe will best Wong's story for story arc, and if your post on this topic is representive of your writing ability and style I would not even bother to start typing.

Romulan_nemesis, I hope you're not thinking of Graham Kennedy's fanfic. That piece of garbage was so horrible that I had to stop reading it after about two paragraphs into it.

Heh Heh A question of my Grammer?
I'll answear you the same way I answear everyone Else
My English? Its Fine
Hows your Farsi?
:D never assume English is somones native Language we all make mistakes

As writing one myself you don't need a Lit Degree to be a Critic, :D One of my talents in anaylis of most anything
And while I don't have a Degree in English Lit I do know what I like and don't like, Along with some spiffy English terms to throw in, Wongs Story while nice on the surface after the intiatal conflict lacked any real Drama, Sure you had this and that going on but none of it was realy taken as far as it could have. Charater devolpment was lacking and there was a lack of flow, The set-up was right but the diffrent events did not realy tack togther.
I rated it KJA on a author scale, The fic built up but did not realy come to any real conculsion. It walked when it should have been running, whispered when it should have been screaming and dictated when it should have been teaching. While I don't claim a Eng Lit Degree my Aunt CAN make that claim and while it may sound like a appel to authorty and it sort of is the fact was when I ran it by here she had much the same critisisms as I did.
Thus I felt it safe to post up here on the board

And a final note

Hi guys,

Quick question. How do you post a fan fic? I've been to some of the sites, particulally the Star Trek vs. Star Wars site that Wong's fic is posted on. I was just wondering because I couldn't find a submission policy and I wanted to post a chapter to see if anyone likes it before I decide to keep on writing it.

Any suggestions are welcome and thanks in advance. :D

Post it in Pure-SW and we will rip it apart for your fun and pleasure

Or Off-Topic maybe where we will make helpful suggestions by complete Strangers and possibly idiots
Then rip it apart
:D

Your choice

Anyway, you can find a lotta fanfics in www.fanfix.com

Ah... waidda minute... You said SCRIPT, did you? Probably the story you're looking for is "For The Honor of the Empire". You can find it on www.fanfix.com (go to the Crossover section).

Get a newsreader, set it up, and go to alt.startrek.vs.starwars. Post your fanfic there, and it will usually go into the Archive (if it's bad, however, it might wind up in the Crap section :)). FYI, I'm the mirror maintainer for it; ask away.

If you don't have a newsreader (Outlook Express is one, but you must set it up first) you can go to http://groups.google.com.

Thanks everyone for your help :)

Also, Grahm Kennedy's Fic, (I forget who mentioned it...) was pretty pathetic. I read the entire thing, and while the idea was great,...its a shame for a trekkie to admit it, but NO Federation ship, or alpha quadrant ship could take that many hits from all those TIE fighters and ISDs and only have the shields down to a few percents below.

It reminds me of something out of those old 1960's The Outer Limits episodes where they got everything wrong.

If you want it on http://daltonator.net/fanfics/main.html then use a newreader like Express, or post it here: http://groups.google.com/groups?hl=en&s ... s.starwars

I'm willing to follow up with Mr. Bean's suggestion and post the first (and only) chapter of Star Crossed my very first fanfic ever on Pure Star Wars (although, it is a crossover story with ST) to see how well it holds up to you fine people's tastes. :D If it sucks then I haven't really wasted my time and we can all have a laugh (at my expense...hmmmm) If its good then I can continue writing and we can enjoy how it progresses.

I just don't want to post it if its against the rules, I wouldn't want to step on any moderator's toes or upset the Good Mr. Wong who provided us with such a fine forum. So, I guess if I can get the OK from someone I'll go ahead and do that later today.

Thanks again for all the help.
