That's a line from a story Richard Burkhart began writing over ten years ago, in December of 1990. Due to a lot of things, it never got completed.

It really should be.

It's a story about a particular crew, that of the U.S.S. Stardancer, a project started in 1989 that has evolved over the years. The crew personalities were drawn from people we knew. The captain, Michael Robert Tyber, is based on me, though he's British. The first officer is based on my best friend from high school, the Chief Medical Officer is my old friend Rob Lewellyn, the Chief Engineer is my friend Ed, and the Andorian communications officer is based on Richard himself.

Lt. Cmdr. J'aaki'thlaras'tantzag (or just "J'aaki" to his crewmates) is a conflicted and flawed individual, like many of the crew, but J'aaki's story is particularly well-done, and the Arc as I recall it is very well-written.

Richard really ought to finish it.

Stardancer will have to be changed a little. But the project will go on.

[edited; corrected J'aaki's job]
