KRAD COVID reading #100d: Star Trek: S.C.E.: Many Splendors Part 4

For 2021, KRAD COVID readings has been covering the only short fiction I didn’t read in 2020: my novellas for the Star Trek: Starfleet Corps of Engineers series, a monthly series of eBooks that ran from 2000-2007. I’ve had a new reading every #TrekTuesday, though this will be the final one of those

This week we conclude the landmark 100th installment of the series, and also the last story in the S.C.E. cycle: Many Splendors. Part of the “What’s Past” event done to celebrate the 40th anniversary of Trek in 2006, this story chronicled the Gomez-Duffy romance on board the U.S.S. Enterprise-D, and also provides an engine-room’s-eye view of the second through fifth seasons of The Next Generation.

In Part 4, Gomez makes a fateful decision about her career and her relationship with Duffy, even as the Enterprise is crippled by a quantum filament.

This is the last installment of KRAD COVID readings for awhile. I’ve run out of short fiction (at least for now, there are several in process), and I need a break. You can feel free to subscribe to the channel, or just check out the archives.

Thanks!
