This started off OK, but already seems to be changed into a load of sound effects. Rather than fight sequences we can't see, why not have dialogue between the characters that we can hear?


I'm fortunate that I enjoy working out the fight scenes, but they do take some deciphering sometimes, when we can't see who's attacking whom, etc. Yes, it would be easier listening, if we were given more dialogue and less sound effects.

Agreed.
My views are my own.

I realise the military might search prisoners more thoroughly on occasion, but would it hurt the crew to put their teleport bracelets on their ankles, or anywhere less obvious that their wrists/hands, as they get taken off them instantly every time they get captured.

I thought of that while pondering writing fan fiction. I had Avon redsign the bracelet to be like one of those rubbery plastic bracelets you often see on people now- but semi-translucent and much smaller but with all the bells and whistles. The ankle idea is a good one but in an emergency bending double to call for help? That's a good way to be shot and for them to never find the bullet hole.... if you get my drift!
Zil: Oneness must resist the Host.

I like the way it's developing now (I'm about 7 minutes behind). The main two Federation characters in this are interesting.

I am LOVING it! Lots of STUFF to do for very precise deadlines (eg 9.30am for releases, 4.30pm for announcements), setting sales, promotions, writing synopses... it's a lot of fun, reminds me of my time working to deadlines in TV.

Yes, the offer is 25% off LC11. Oh well, if you've got them all, just spread the word! The offer is for one week only.


I'm really, really glad you love it! It sounds brilliant, and exactly suited to you, though such strict deadlines must be challenging, especially when there's so much to the job! I'm glad it's fun too! It's certainly a much needed job, doing a great service to the community!


I wish I could hear all the audio stories again for the first time! I'll certainly spread the word on them, especially when they're on offer Grin

Must have been a lot of giggles over the planet Straxus. Doesn't Dan play a Sontaran named Strax?

Paul's delivery of the lines makes me so happy, even when he's a hostage in the most dire situation...

"As a hostage, it's nice to be superfluous".

And he's still just as cool, after the threat of being strapped to the outside of the vehicle to be shot at. Grin

With the number of people who shoot first and take prisoners after, bending down in an emergency, might be a way of avoiding getting shot, so they can have a chance to be taken prisoner. If it's a first series story, even the chunky bracelets could be hidden by their flared trousers. Avon redesigning the bracelets would work too - I think pendant-necklace (sadly to be worn under clothes) would make a nice jewelry set.

I'm sure the 'trainee' wasn't quoting the manual at him, but was just taking the opportunity to get rid of a right idiot of a commander.

He was a rubbish commander, but very well played. Suffered quite a brutal (though not undeserved) end.
