We're back! Thanks for bearing with us.

Though Tajaran Attack is the oldest of the scripts (and the only one we actually finished filming), there were multiple stories we worked on way back when! And Queen Natashia was meant to be the second. As I mentioned before, the original scripts were written more as a full-blown spoof, whereas we elected to do this series as a (at least slightly!) more serious Star Trek. However, we also thought it might be fun to share the original scripts! And I realize posting this late at night that I neglected to consult with my fellow authors about whether I should post the Queen Natashia original script before or after we complete the full comic episode. So... hang tight on that one, but here are the other two:
Tajaran Attack!
Scoggo Sector
Scoggo Sector is an unfinished script that we were working on as a prequel and is a fair bit newer than the others. Obviously, we scrapped the prequel part and just made it the first story when the comic came along! So enjoy! And I'll be back with more of them as we go along :)

Kelpian shrimp is a tangential reference to Star Trek: Discovery. Probably the only reference I will make. But I did like the Kelpians.

BrickVoid: Looks like Wogglenather has some kind of dish resembling an alien cat that they cook up for special occasions! As long as no real cats were harmed in this production, I'm okay with it htough! :D

Panel 1:
Title Text: Federation Star Defense Episode 4: "Queen Natashia"
President Barkface: ... and so, we give our thanks to our Federation friends. And especially...

Panel 2:
Barkface: The Great Jeffrey.
Commodore Dale Zurkett: Sigh.
Lieutenant Zack LeRoux: You're gonna have to get used to it, Dale.
    Jeffrey's just got that down-home charm. Draws all the spotlights.

Panel 3:
Dale: It's fine... at least we got mentioned as "Federation firends."
Zack: See, there you go!
    Anyway, look at this feast! I don't what half this stuff is, but I'm gonna eat it anyway.

Panel 4:
Dale: I question your wisdom, Zack.
Zack: Hrm.

Panel 5:
Zack: Here's the wisdom: The ship is almost fixed. Once this banquet is over, we only have days before we have to deal with that Romulan stuff.
Dale: Ugh. Diplomacy.
Zack: Right? So eat... and be merry.
Dale: Wonder if we should get a doggy bag--
Passing Wogglenather (aside): Ahem.
Dale: --- I mean a to-go bag for the Vulcans.

Panel 6:
Dale: I feel kind of bad that they're all running hte ship while we feast.
Zack: Vulcans hate this kind of frivolous, emotional celebrating. I mean... you asked T'Zel about it, right?

Panel 7:
Dale: Yeah... she said she hated frivolous, emotional gatherings.
Zack: Exactly. Don't sweat it. They're all as happy as clams right now. Even if they don't--
    Whoa! Is that Kelpian shrimp?!?
Ensign Hylia (aside): Get your own!
