RK_Striker_JK_5


I'm an old-school MLP fan, glad the new show is doing great.

Equestria finds itself caught in the cold war between the United Federation of Planets and the Klingon Empire. Can friendship prevail, or will this cold war turn hot, despite their best efforts?

This is a crossover with Star Trek, taking place in late 2269 of the Prime timeline, during the fourth year of the five-year mission of the original television series. It's not a crossover with the movies made by J.J. Abrams. It is mid-season five or so for Friendship is Magic. it is my humble offering for the fiftieth anniversary of Star Trek, which debuted September 8, 1966.

Thanks to Talon and Thorn, Bliss Authority, Tumbleweed, sun tzu, and RainbowDoubleDash for pre-reading. My humbles and most sincere thanks.

... Crap; wrong series for that joke, :trixieshiftleft:

Always good to see a crossover with the Star Trek universe. I am eagerly awaiting the next chapter.

“Mister Spock, this Equus System. What... do we know about it, precisely?”

This made me laugh far more than it should have. Shatner pauses in dialog. I'd never thought I'd see it.

And it wouldn't be Kirk if Kirk didn't put the moves on one of the princesses. Alright, you got my attention Riker.

Kirk flirting with Cadence and pissing off Shiny.

“I do not believe repetition will make the meaning of my words any clearer, Lieutenant.”

Ahh, the good old days, when people didnt take themselves seriously unless they absolutely had to.

Today:Dammit Jim, I dropped a cornflake on the mess room floor, now everyone will need to be vaccinated against Rigellian flu and the entire desk plasma clensed.:pinkiecrazy:

Just wanted to say you've nailed Spock's speaking style. Bravo!

I see this isn't a DisQord worldine.

In any case, I'm a sucker for Equestria in sci-fi settings, especially Trek. Definitely looking forward to seeing where you go with this.

It's not the first time I've seen this sort of thing, but it's always entertaining when done well.

Personally I'm anxious to see what the Klingons get up to. Part of me hopes you go full-in on the old-school treacherous Klingons of TOS, but on the other hand Kang in "Day of the Dove" seemed like a reasonable enough character. Plus this is MLP, so getting the Klingons and the Federation to work together would probably be pretty high on Twilight's to-do list.

Good to see the fast-and-loose Federation approach to the Prime Directive of this era, too. I feel it was generally healthier than the approach taken by the TNG era onwards.

Congrats! I have a Star Trek story in the works, but couldn't get it done by today!

Live Long and Prosper,

Dreadnought

Hey there. Thanks greatly for getting this story started. I really appreciate you going to the effort. I'm only a casual fan of both franchises, but as far as I'm concerned, you are doing a bang-up job capturing the styles of both franchises. Anyway, the exchanges, characterizations, emotional content, humor and future chapter set-up are all well done in all the right places. At any rate, excellent 50th anniversary celebration piece for the original Star Trek series AND a good tribute to the memory of Leonard Nimoy (who died either earlier this year or VERY late LAST year; I forgot which)

I'll definitely be looking forward to more of this - Same Pony Channel, but not necessarily Same Pony Time. Ooops. Sorry. (sheepish grin) Wrong series (though that series is ALSO seeing its 50th anniversary this year [another sheepish grin]).

Been hoping for a story like this for a while. Looking forward to seeing it develop!

So, is this the original Star Trek series that is crossing over here and not the J.J. Abrams series? Either way, it's interesting, but I'd just like some clarification as I'm not as into Star Trek lore as most.

I know this is based off the original series but are the ships and uniforms based off of the original movies (wrath of Khan- the undiscovered country)just to clear up some confusion

Hopefully we shall not wake a sleeping dragon here.

Oh boy.

The most important question is whom Kirk will end up sleeping with

Alright, you have my attention. A story containing several chuckles in the first chapter alone has promise. :pinkiecrazy:

New striker story? And it's Star Trek you say?

Maximum warp Mr. Scott. I've got a story to read!

7548142 Kirk got to say it a lot too, don't worry.

I'm very happy to explore where this boldly goes.

I believe you've got the Enterprise crew's personalities right. This should be fun.

Well, this has my attention. It sounds like you're potraying Q and Discord as separate characters. I really hope that continues, as I always felt their personalities are rather different on a fundamental level.

Also, it's nice to see a crossover with the original series.

Captain James T. Kirk

Yessssss

I know that this is supposed to be the original series but since I've never actually seen the original series, I kept using the movie versions :yay:

Wow that was some excellent characterization. Good job.

I really feel like I should give it more of a chance, but the whole tea between immortals discussing destiny/future events... well, its almost as bad as a cutaway to a dark shadowy figure discussing their evil plans involving the main character. Assuming its not a story literally about two immortals discussing something over tea/biscuits/whiskey, it sucks me right out of the plot line, destroys my suspension of disbelief, and just in general sours my enjoyment of what's going on. This sort of scene works fairly well on the big screen, very poorly in writing. At least in my opinion.

Okay, the rest, pretty good actually. A bit rushed, but the Kirk dialogue was spot on. The pauses done with just the right grammar to catch what he sounds like in the show, without being awkward to read.

I'm still going to follow it, but that first bit does not give me high hopes.

It's been quite a while since I've read one of your stories. This looks like it could be fun though. I admit, I've never been much of a Trekkie. (The fact that I used the term "Trekkie" probably attests to that.) But I still have some appreciation for Star Trek. Though I've only seen a good handful of Star Trek: The Original Series. I'm more of a fan of The Next Generation. Still, I think I have enough of a grasp of what's going on here.

“...What... do we know about it, precisely?”

“Wait, the probe you mentioned, what did it... send back?”

Our mission is to... seek out new life and new civilizations.

“Spock, do you think... whoever built this star system, could have built... Canterlot?”

Wait.... Are you.... using.... ellipsis and.... italics to.... represent William.... Shatner's stilted.... manner of speaking.... as.... Captain Kirk?

The others followed her gaze. Uhura stepped forward and smiled slightly. “Like Minas Tirith from the old Lord of the Rings novels.”

A Star Trek character brings up The Lord of the Rings in an MLP fanfic. That, my friend, has to be the nerdiest moment I have ever experienced.

Well, I look forward to see this boldly go where no man or pony has gone before. I hope I don't have to use Memory Alpha to figure out what's going on. Keep up the good work. :pinkiehappy:

hmmmm. interesting. you do quite well keeping to kirks speaking type. im quite interested in seeing where this goes.

I'm more of a fan of The Next Generation.

Oh, yeah! Up top!!!

Jean Luc Picard ftw!!!:rainbowdetermined2:

Yeah, that was kind of a clichéd and weak beginning. I think "Celestia knew about aliens all along" would've had more impact if it had been revealed later. Still, I wouldn't discount the entire story on that basis yet. "Twilight the Terrible" was pretty damn good and if this one ends up working even just half as well, it'll still be a pretty decent read.

7548344
Well the description says 2270s
So, TMP/TWoK era.

Which means we either get TMP uniforms or the good uniforms.

However, last year, two ship captains managed to drive off a rogue windigo through cooperation and laughter!

Hah! You're good. :rainbowlaugh:

I'm kinda beside myself trying to figure out who's going to up getting double-fist hammered by ripped-shirt Kirk. Rainbow is the most obvious one to pick a fight... :rainbowwild:

7548873
Seduce all the space horsies!

nice start definitely looking forward to this

7548901 Just the green ones? :rainbowlaugh:

Spock needs to stretch out his mind and play tick tack toe with Pinky.

Hmmmm, this should be good.

Odd. Given the presence of one person with yellow eyes:derpytongue2:, we might have expected another.

Stardate 6011.5 and Uhura's on the away team? Does that mean we'll see M'Ress at communications?

Wow!
So far this is the best Star Trek crossover to date :heart:

First thoughts before reading: thought this took place during Star Trek Online's TOS Faction: takes place around the same time of 2270.

After: but this seems like an original idea. if anything, you can use STO's 23rd century ship designs.

Oh my! I'm totally digging this so far -- it was a really fun read. As a few others have said, you've gotten your William Shatner voice down to a tee. But more importantly (well, at least for me, personally), Spock's and Bone's bickering is spot on.

Spock pulled out his tricorder and waved it around. “Gravity is at .9 of Earth. Atmospheric quality is rather remarkable.”
Bones inhaled deeply. “Now that is some clean, fresh air.”
Spock flipped his tricorder closed. “I believe I already said that, Doctor,”

:rainbowlaugh:

(Also, good day to release this!)

I'm tracking this, how many chapters are you thinking?

So who's Kirk going to sleep with on this planet? My guess is Rarity

7549185 I think you meant this one:

Eh, Klingons aren't much of a problem.

Just beam some tribbles into their engine room, where they'll be no tribble at all! :trollestia:

Or have William Shatner kick Christopher Lloyd into liquid-hot magma.

Either works.

You can also get rid of Klingons circling Uranus with some sturdy toilet paper! (lol, grade school humor from 30 years ago...)

7549373
Sweetcream Scoops. And Kirk is the one who gets cuddled thoroughly.

Now the big question: Which Pony is Kirk going to end up in bed with by the end of this fic? :trollestia:

...not that I am ruling out a Gryphon or Diamond Dog OC, mind.

i just got done watching the search for spock, great movie, a bit heartbreaking, though. that ship has been through so much...

*raise eyebrow* :trixieshiftright:

"Fascinating"
