“A character I made up while watching Star Trek: The Original Series.
Name: Ensign CLark
Appearance: Medium height, with short, dirty-blond hair. Has dark green eyes and peach skin. Age is somewhere around twelve-thriteen-ish.
Story: While on a mission to an uncharted planet, Capt. Kirk and crew received a distress signal from the planet. As they beamed down, the away-team found a building that didn’t show up on their ship’s radars, so they went in. They found the building to be holding children. Looking deeper inside, they saw Experiment 902-508. As Bones is scanning it (which turns out to be a her), he discovers that she is alive, but wounded badly and sick. It looked as if she was hit by a whip. Kirk makes the decision to take 904-508 back to the Enterprise so he can question her.
904-508 wakes up in the medical bay and is surprised to she that she is in a different place. Bones comes in and says that the captain will be in to see her. He shows her three things: a teddy bear, a blank notebook, and a pencil. 904-508 stares at the objects but knows what they are. Minutes pass an then Kirk and Spock come into the medical bay and start to question her.
Kirk: Hello. Do you have a name?
Clark: Clark, uh Sir.
Kirk: Alright, Clark. And you can just call me Captain Kirk.
Kirk: Now, Clark, why were you in that laboratory?
Clark: The scientists were conducting tests…..[spreads out what look to be hawk wings] hybrid tests.
[Kirk and Bones look utterly bewildered.]
Clark: I can read minds, too.
Spock: Why did they do that to you?
Clark: [shrugging] I guess to create the ultimate human.
Spock: [suddenly interested] You mean before you had wings, you were human?
Clark: I guess so.
Bones: [jestering to the three things] Do you recognize these things?
Clark: Yes. The scientists would give us a stuffed animal to “make us feel at home” and “get used to them.”
Kirk: But it doesn’t work.
Clark: Nope. They would also give us a journal to “write down our thoughts and feelings.” Yeah, right.
Bones: Your journal has nothing in it. Care to explain?
Clark: Yes. I never would write anything down in mine, because the scientists would always check them.
Kirk: One last question, honest.
Kirk: Why didn’t the laboratory show up on our radars?
Clark: I think because the scientists don’t have permission to be experimenting on us.
Kirk: Ok. Thank you, Clark.
Clark: You’re welcome, Captain.
As Kirk and Spock are leaving the Medical Bay, Spock is telling Kirk that maybe they could keep Clark and have her as an Ensign. He explains that she can’t go back because, as Bones checked the wounds, they were a result of abuse. Kirk teases Spock about having “fatherly-feelings” for Clark, but Kirk agrees that it is wise to keep Clark. “She would have to study, of course, if she wants to be an Ensign.”
Kirk and Spock propose the idea to Clark, whom graciously accepts the idea, saying, “Thank you. I really don’t want to go back.”
Personality: Sweet, smart, though shy because she has been isolated for the first few years of her life. She is strong, doesn’t read other peoples minds (unless she needed to) and always willing to help out. Since she can read minds, she is not easy to trick.”
Sounds like someone’s been reading Maximum Ride. :P
Anonymous asked: Theres this OC that is 19 years old and a Lt.... im confused becuz dont you enter the academy at 18??
Usually, yes. But people can enter the Academy at all kinds of ages. The entrance exam is very difficult, however, and most people don’t attempt it until they’ve had some form of higher schooling (since it includes quantum physics and the like).
Basically, a person would have to be a genius in order to have graduated and attained that rank at such a young age.
Okay….so I was looking through all of my old Star Trek characters (I have way too many) and I came across this gem, and I realised I had to share her on here. This has to be my most ridiculous Star Trek OC. Her name is Mallory Naavik Pendelten, and from what I remember she was like Spock’s niece (or cousin?) or some such relation (that’s not even possible……*snort*), and she was an illogical Vulcan/Human (so original ) who was in a rock band (I mean….whut???)
I honestly have no idea what I was smoking four years ago when I came up with this OC, but I thought she’d be the perfect specimen for this wonderful blog.
Mod Note: Oh my gosh, she’s perfect. XD A rock band member, crazy!!
Anonymous asked: Can an OC be considered a Mary Sue if she's a Lt. Commander at age 28 or 29?
Not necessarily. Some officers graduate the Academy at higher ranks, and others progress through the ranks at a good and steady rate. I would have to know more about the character themselves in order to know if they were a Sue or not, though.
Anonymous asked: Do you think my character is a M.S. if she became an Ensign at age 20? I only saw the 2009 and 2013 films and a few episodes of TOS.
I don’t think that’s too bad, but remember it takes about 4 years of Academy training for a person to graduate as a full officer of Starfleet. She would have had to pass the entrance exams at 16, which is a very difficult thing to do. Stuff to keep in mind! :)
As always, I recommend Memory Alpha as a great place to get more information about Star Trek canon. You can look up info about Starfleet Academy, courses, ranks, everything!
(Sorry for the black boxes on the image—I had to block out the watermark and signature!)
This chick is from an ongoing fanfiction and has no laid-out profile, but I was able to glean some fascinating information from the fic.
Her name is Rip, and she’s brand-new to the Enterprise! She has many talents, and is the new nurse. She graduated high school at 13 and just passed a bunch of tests at 18 at the Academy to “be aboard as any member on this ship, even as captain.” She was Kirk’s childhood friend, but he doesn’t remember her at first! How sad. She has to remind him! :3
Anonymous asked: What is wrong for a person to make a villain OC look cool? I've heard that cool looking villains are considered Mart Sues/Gary Stus just because they wear black clothing or look Gothic.
There’s nothing inherently wrong with a cool-looking villain. Gothic clothing is rather cliche, though. If a villain is wearing something practical, sensible, and still manages to look cool, though, that’s totally okay!
Anonymous asked: Would Spock even be able to have kids? He's technically a hybrid right so shouldn't he be sterile?
Not all hybrids are sterile. As far as what I know, I’m going to answer by showing you this “conversation” between Roddenberry and Sarek:
“And Spock was the result. The first Human-Vulcan mixture.”
“No, not the first. But the first to survive. As you must know, an Earth-Vulcan conception will abort during the end of the first month. The fetus is unable to continue life once it begins to develop its primary organs. The fetus Spock was removed from Amanda’s body at this time—first such experiment ever attempted. His tiny form resided in a test tube for the following two Earth months, while our physicians performed delicate chemical engineering, introducing over a hundred subtle changes that we hoped would sustain life. At the end of this time, the fetus was returned to Amanda’s womb. At the ninth Earth month, the tiny form was again removed from Amanda, prematurely by Vulcan standards, and spent the following four months Vulcan term pregnancy in a specially designed incubator. The infant Spock proved surprisingly resilient—there seems to be something about the Earth-Vulcan mixture, which created in that.. tiny body.. a fierce determination to survive.”
So while Vulcan-Human hybrids are possible, they are very difficult to achieve. This might mean that it would be very difficult for Spock to have children.
HOWEVER. [[Spoilers ahead if you have not seen The Search for Spock]]
After assisting Spock with his pon farr during his regeneration, it is implied in several cut lines and scenes that Saavik has become pregnant with his child. None of those bits made it into the final cut of the movie, but it is still possible.
“Carmen’s a rednexican (redneck/mexican) born and raised in Amarillo, TX. She lost her mother at a young age and her father was abusive when drunk. The father was taken by a tornado while she was in the cellar. Since then, her uncle raised her until she went to Cali to go to school for robotics and auto shop where she quickly dropped her accent for fear of being teased because of her background.
While on vacation in Las Vegas, she met up with the Aquabats and helped them rid the Fashion Show Mall of Fashion Zombies and helped in their concert afterwards. For about two years, she was helping the Aquabats save the world whenever she could until The Doctor kidnapped her to be a companion.
(Not explaining the trips with the Doctor)
The Doctor took her to the Enterprise because he knew that she wanted to use her skills somewhere where they would be fully appreciated. There, Carmen became an Ensign and assissted all over the ship in miscellaneous(sp?) areas her robotics and repair skittles were needed.”
Apparently “redneck” is a nationality now? (And I’m cracking up at “repair skittles.” TASTE THE RAINBOW~)
Anonymous asked: Have you ever encountered copycat sues?
Oh, plenty. Usually they’re Kirk’s sister, or a sister of any other canon character. Sometimes they’re just effectively genderbends of a canon chara, but with tiny clothes and a sassy attitude. :S
