Points for faves by gorgonbreath

Calm down kids I'm talking about writing.

I realized something earlier this week, I would've written this sooner but I've been sucking on managing my time this week.  Anyway one of the things I realized is the difference between writing (good) fan fiction for Star Wars and Star Trek.

The issue is the number of people you need to write about.

If you do a Star Wars style story you can get away with two people or even one person in the story and it works.  You could have a setting of one sector with one or two people trying to succeed.  Be it fighting the good fight, chasing down someone for a wide variety of reasons, or staying ahead of the bounty hunters and/or criminals that want them gone.  Then of course as the scale ramps up the number of major figures will increase and you'll get a lot of minor characters too, usually near the main characters in the Captain Obvious role or as someone to blow up especially if they're in a starfighter.  Of course this ranges from the novels of Han Solo in the Corporate Sector up to the Thrawn Trilogy and the galaxy spanning conflict going on there.

On the other hand you have Star Trek and the nature of the stories there.  You kinda have to write about a group there, usually the bridge officers of a starship.  Looking at Star Trek most of the stories on there did not involve William Shatner as Captain Kirk acting alone on the ship, you would have (the late, great) DeForest Kelly as Dr. "Bones" McCoy there to offer advice or treat patients, and you would also have (the now late, great) Leonard Nimoy as Spock giving his analysis of the situation and how to deal with it, and the communications officer, chief engineer, and well you get the point here.  It's a crew working together for the mutual advantage of everyone succeeding overall.  If there are stories about people doing stuff on their own I'm pretty sure those are one offs and next story it's back to the group dynamic.

So what's my point here?

Simple, I have two Star Wars characters and one Star Trek character.  All of them OCs and if you'll check my gallery you'll see one story for my Jedi, none for the Star Wars mechanic, and also none for the Star Trek character.  Thing is the Jedi character is fairly easy to come up with ideas for, adventure stories with some time devoted to understanding the situation and coming up with most of a plan to deal with it.  The Star Wars mechanic is a bit harder to write for, he needs a couple other people to work with or at least someone to pilot the ship he trying to keep together.

The problem is the Star Trek character, I need the rest of a crew to properly write for her.  I might be able to put something together eventually for some kind of story for her, but it could take a while.  I dunno, I'm writing this late at night.
