NT1-Nova Trek- Gains and Losses by mdbruffy NT1-Nova Trek- Gains and Losses by mdbruffy
* Pilot Episode *
Captain Janet Tamera Kirk and the crew of the FSS Enterprise join forces with the Klingons in order to stop attacks on the border colonies. But will the price of their alliance be more than Jan can afford?

This is the book where it all began. This post of the PDF is intended to replace the cover and link I posted earlier.

It's definitely a "Pilot Episode". But it got things going.

The stamp wasn't showing up for this one or "Guardian's child" which is why I re-submitted it. I'll check the pages again.

Mr. or Madison- I don't hide my name. Probably should, But I don't.

Thank you. This project's been on-going for five years now, and in all that time, I have never gotten a negative comment. Constructive criticism, yes- and usually deserved. But out right negative, never.

Gains and Losses is the "Pilot" in every sense of the word. As I told someone else, the learning curve is obvious compared to the later books- but everyone has to start somewhere.

Have some sci-fi I keep meaning to write down and illustrate. Just never seem to get around to it.

If you don't, who will? I've got tons of original material laying around I want to get back to- that's one reason I made sure Nova Trek had a definite end in store.

Then I'll see what I can do about getting the Atalanta's story finished.

No promises on time frame, though

Why do you think I only state the year of the next book? I never pin myself down to a month until I'm nearing the last page.

I love this book!! This is where Jan and Spock and the crew, with the help of Kang figure out that the Romulans are up to no good. The only bad thing about this one is that this is where her brother Jim, and his wife Carol are killed.

Yep. This is where it all began. This is the Nova Trek version of "Balance of Terror"- the return of the Romulans after a century of silence.

This book is truly the "Pilot episode" in almost every sense of the word.

Your version was actually better than 'Balance', and yes, I thought it was a 'Pilot' episode as well.
