Hollywood TV writer and producer Robert Hewitt Wolfe (Elementary, StarTrek, DS9 etc) is a RuneQuest and Glorantha fan from way back, and even snuck references into the scripts he worked on). But, playing boardgames last night he had a Gloranthan reason to call out K-H-H-A-A-A-N-N-N-N!!!!!
Star Trek is 50 years old today. And Greg Stafford also discovered the mythic universe of Glorantha in 1966 too. But did you know that in the intervening half-century Glorantha has found its way into the Star Trek universe? Robert Hewitt Wolfe, RuneQuest fan and one of the producers of Star Trek "Deep Space Nine" and "Star Trek: The Next Generation", entertainingly slipped in various tweaked Gloranthan references to episodes. The most notable of these is the Klingon who proposes a toast to "Rurik the Damned, conqueror of the Zora Fel, liberator of Vrax" (DS9 S5 Ep1), but there's also Falagian Diamonds, various planets and characters named after Gloranthan gods, and one (admittedly incredibly minor) character that I am particularly chuffed about.... Andre Jarosch has helpfully catalogued all of Star Trek - Gloranthan references here in this German article: Happy half-century Star Trek and Glorantha! http://bit.ly/2cilKFi
http://darkerprojects.com/star-trek-lost-frontier/ http://star-trek-lost-frontier.blogspot.com/ I know we've got posters here who love post-apocalyptic drama and others who love space opera. Here's a 19-episode radio drama, Star Trek: The Lost Frontier. Think MegaTraveller's broken Third Imperium applied to the Star Trek universe. Set after Next Generation, Deep Space Nine and Voyager, galactic civilization has been wrecked by a devastating plague that swept all races, even the Borg. A certain Captain Trask is recruited by what remains of the Federation to oversee a mission aboard the Enterprise F to reunite former members and contact former alien allies and enemies. Trask's job is complicated by a resentful second officer, a sneaky Ferengi quartermaster, a Starfleet attache with an agenda of his own, scheming spies from a rival xenophobic Federation, intergalactic assassins and gangsters. It is hard to determine friend from foe. The current Enterprise is the height of Federation technology, but it is only one ship against the galaxy.
