there be a Virtual Season 10?
No, it was decided through season 8 that we will not be
going beyond a season 9. This is because we feel that the
story will be told in 2 seasons. We don't want the project
to drag on and become boring.
these stories be in print form?
There is currently no plan to release these stories in
fanzine or 'print' format.
we see the Borg again? / Will you bring Kes back?
We're discussing both possiblities at the moment. There
will be notification of this in the future as the episodes
can you plan a full season without knowing what happens at
the end of this one?
Simple, our plot, or "story arc' that we have defined for
the whole season leaves room to connect Voyager's ending with
our arc. The first several episodes of our season (2-4 possibly)
will deal with the repercussions of whatever Voyager left
us and connect that with our arc. If you want to keep up with
updates, we suggest clicking subscribe on the main page and
subscribing to the season 9 update list..
want to write! What to I need to do?
Authors are, at the moment, being picked by the producers
of the project or are being recomended by the writers themselves.
We currentely have 1/2 season of VVS9 planned out with authors,
all if which plan on writing 1 episode after that one.
don't want to write, but I want to help out. What do I do?
If you wish to help out in any other way, by contributing
story ideas etc. E-mail us and we'll see if we can place you
somewhere. Be reminded that this is a huge task, however having
too many people working at once will lead to confusion. We're
trying to avoid that as well.
want to write, however I'm concerned with how much story freedom
we'll have. Can you enlighten me?
We realize this is a big concern among many authors and we'll
try to provide them with as much freedom as possible. We have
planned for a 26-episode season, and out of those 26 1/4 roughly
will be arc-centered episodes (episodes that will have the
planned story arc as the main part of the plot). The rest
will be stand alones, however each will have a small portion
devoted to the overall plot. Basically a mention, a discovery
that ties in with the writer's own plot etc. Character-wise
it's just a matter of sticking to the normal characterizations
and following the overall story arc for what will happen to
what character and when. If you feel your story will fit in
better somewhere else along the storyline, tell us about it
and we'll solve it together. Each
episode need to be from 70KB to 100KB in length (10 000 to
16 000 words).
long will VVS9 Run? When will it premiere? How many episodes
will it be?
will run, by estimates up until October-November 2002. It
will premiere on April 10th, 2002 after a 3 month hiatus so
VVS9 can be written. This season will quite possibly be longer
than the last one, streching into 30-34 episodes. We are planning
on doing some 'normal' Voyager episodes during mid-season
- so we have accounted for this here.
are the requirements for submitting a story?
Simple actually! We're looking for good quality writing along
with a good story idea. The only thing we're strong on is
that the story should be at least 70Kb in plain text format.
Anything shorter than that and it wouldn't have room for development
we with to see in each episode. All stories, once written
should be submitted in text format.
will the episodes be posted?
All the episodes will be posted on the website. Back episodes
will be found in the 'Episode Archive' under the VVS9 section.
a new design for the website? I liked the last one!
is a very very very.....creative person. She sometimes expresses
this in creating massive new websites and redesigning others.
In other words - she was bored.
