Universal translator3rd year cadet Pu'ma Shak'Ra and 1st year cadet David Reynolds are busy working in one of the Starfleet Academy tech labs. Soft classical music is playing in the background
Shak'Ra: Reynolds! Hand me that isolinear chip! Mrrrrrr
Reynolds: This blue one you mean?
Shak'Ra: Rrrrrr No! The green one, number 47.
Reynolds: 47, got it!
Shak'Ra: Thank you Srrrrr.
Reynolds: Can you explain to me again what is that you are doing?
Shak'Ra: Simply put Mrrrrr, the current universal translator used by Starfleet has extreme difficulty at translating spoken Caitian into Hrrrr Federation standard. As a result, the speech of any Caitian using the UT is broken up Grrrrrr with sounds from our native language that cannot be properly translated.
Reynolds: Funny, I always thought that you just liked meowing to yourself. You know like an angry person constantly swearing under his breath (Smiles at Shak'Ra).
Shak'Ra: (desperately trying to hold back an amused grin) Well that too, but for the most part it is th

Evaluation of the United Federation of Planets
Recently one of our starships encountered a vessel from a previously unknown alien race. These aliens represent a larger interstellar alliance known as the United Federation of Planets. From what we have gathered this Federation is a group of around 80 races (as of this entry) spread over several thousand light years of space. The Federation claims to be dedicated to the interests of peace, interspecies cooperation, mutual defense and the exploration of the galaxy.
While the Federation's ideals are not all that dissimilar to our own, we believe that it would still be wise to err on the side of caution. As any good predator knows, one of the simplest (and most dishonorable) ways to catch your prey is to set a trap for them, and the Federation may not be all that it seems.
There are a wide variety of races that are members of the Federation.
LithiumA single trickling rain drop
Like gossamer silk strands
Gliding along my third eye
Whispers wind's secret caress
I exhale. Lungs releasing-
Pressing translucent memories;
Fragment of a fragment
As water kisses rose petal,
Drifting down stream's curtain
Pretty little curtain.
Where the wizard lies.
He smiles up at me
With his monocled brow-
Sipping on warm tea
And fingers quacking casually
To the rhythm of his notes
This is a safe-zone. Free-zone.
Innocent eyes sparkle,
Imploring it to be true. I breathe.
Red Letter Day - Prologue
So here I am, writing.
I’m writing, I’m writing – just as you told me to.
I’m writing, I’m writing, I’m writing.
Have you ever noticed that when the sun goes down, this flat changes? It does. The walls are white during the day and lingering brown at night. During the day, I’m with you and the light from outside paints the walls that heavenly color. But when that sun goes down, the demons wake and I’m alone again, even though you’re just a room away.
Somehow it seems less threatening tonight, and I think it’s because you’ve given me an assignment to try and fight off the darkness. You gave me a stack of papers and a pen and told me to write everything that comes to mind.
It’s a strange feeling to have complete freedom. These empty pages are mine to do whatever I please – I could even wipe my ass with them – but they’re also terribly intimidating. The blank page has always been a nemesis of man. It&
