As Basis of Proof ends I need to prime you all a bit for the next serial, Time’s Refuge. This comic, as stated in the About Section, does not follow the events in Enterprise at all and avoids much of what happened in DS9, Voyager, and even post fifth season TNG. That’s not to disparage those properties as good entertainment or to say that they aren’t “real Star Trek” – that is not the kind of discussion I ever want to have. They just aren’t my personal idea of where TOS came from and how it would evolve.
It’s important to remember this going into the next story because it will be predominantly set in the 31st century. There are no time ships in my version of events, nor is there a Temporal Cold War, and I wouldn’t even try to guess what letter revision the 1701 is, if it even exists.
My goal will be to make a
3rd 4th millennium that is as utterly alien as an era 700 years in Trek’s future should be while still linking it to Star Trek as we know it in some very obvious and appreciable ways. Basically, I have to figure out what the future of the future would look like from a 1960/1980’s perspective with a little 2010’s thrown in.
