    Summary

    Bucky Barnes is a guy who knows how to take a licking and keep on ticking. And it's a good thing, too, because the world has thrown some pretty weird things his way, including Nazis, dinosaurs, demons, robots, and *shudder* having a teddy bear named after him.

    Summary

    John Watson had worked hard to be accepted at Starfleet Academy. As an Augment, a descendant of the super soldiers who seized power on Earth during the Eugenics wars, he's had to work twice as hard. Play twice as hard too, because screw them. The only path to ship duty for an Omega is extra credits like T.A.ing a Professor's class. The mysterious Commander Holmes, an Augment like himself, would do nicely. Very nicely.

    Sherlock Holmes had gone to considerable effort to put his past - and his family - behind him. His career in Starfleet hadn't gone exactly as envisioned. Bounced from research facility to facility, his analysis on how to defeat the Borg ignored, now he's finally washed up teaching at the Academy. His T.A. is fascinating. Of course, he's entirely above all that alpha biological nonsense.

    Starfleet never really intended to assemble a crew with a half trained doctor and an alpha Augment with authority issues. But they also didn't really intend for the Borg to make it quite as far as they did.

    And so...These are the Voyages of the USS Bakerstreet. Her five year mission (make that ten (okay fine twelve year mission + time travel)), to seek out new life and new civilizations. To go boldly.

    Summary

    On a flyover of quadrant 86, Brunnhilde sees the target: a large green being, wearing only ragged trousers, with strength out of proportion even to his large size. He throws a piece of junk larger than his own body hard enough to obliterate a low-flying craft that’s firing upon him. Even inside Warsong she can hear the rage in his scream.

    Summary

    One hundred forty-seven years. Too long, I thought, and not nearly long enough. “I don’t imagine you’ve woken me just to chat about our respective ancestors. And the Yard has always had trouble with really creative criminals. Still—”

    “We had hardly any criminals, period, for over fifty years,” Lestrade interjected. “Then about three months ago, things changed.

    Summary

    When the worst case scenario is just the beginning of the fall, when you can lose all you loved and still keep losing more, when all you thought you'd be has become a mockery, when you have hit the rocky bottom, that is where, sometimes, you can find the strength to triumph at last.
