Tales from the Fleet - Family by PDSmith Tales from the Fleet - Family by PDSmith
I'll release this graphic novel out in groups of pages then at the end combine it into one PDF.

Enjoy the opening salvo.

This book rides on the heels these two Graphic novels.

Although, I've written it so you don't have to read them, but it seriously helps.
Knowing the back story of the Captain really helps especially for what is planned for her and her daughter.

on the side you also get to see  how my skills in 3d and graphic novel writing have progressed.

Love the look at feel to this. Nice updates to the sets while keeping that TOS flavor. Definitely want to read more :)

Thank you, I admit I took some liberties, like a 4 foot flat screen tv and a few small things but given our tech today, I figure some things might slide in and not effect it too much.  Definitely not going JJ I need my ship simple; it's about the people not the tech and there will be more, I'm cleaning house of current project to show what I'm working on at the moment so more comic strips to come.

Yay! Yeah on the one hand I'm trying to bear that in mind when working on my own stuff then remember how much I hate it when they screw things up on the show. LOL Probably shouldn't have set mine in the WoK era. Blarg.

I do love the look you've got. Definitely a nice modern feel while keeping it old school Trek. And flat panels at this point make a ton of sense, even in TOS. Their monitors were flat even if they had a big box behind them so there is that. ;)

Did they leave the Universal Translator behind at their last stop or something?

In TOS the translator was still in its infant stages. Remember in the movies? Uhura, Chekov and Scotty using a book to talk to Klingons? The Translator still had severe limitations.

No biggy. I'm old school Trek.  I'm less about relying on the tech anyway...I like to see things fail once in a while. It helps draw out a story and adds mystery and a few stumbling blocks for the characters to actually think their way out of things than techno-babble their way out of it.

Good bit of character development, with ominous foreshadowing to carry us through.

Very tight writing, a few grammatical errors aside.

Thanks, just taking things slow this time.  I don't have an editor, and for some damn reason copy and paste from Powerpoint to comiclife drops all my punctuation and in a few cases auto corrects spelling that shouldn't be done.

You just  keep thinking the Captain is a Demon Lord, I won't stop you.  But you are so way off base.

just a nick name besides her enemies fear her after what she did and fleet as like the Halo nickname a sign of insult with a respect as Romulans can't admit they fear so hide it with a Demon fear and respect her power

Buy at the same time you have to balance that power.  Mary-sue that character and she has no weakness.  aka  superman in the first 10 years.
