Voyage of the Legacy
United Federation of Earth had plans to send colony ships to the stars, many were under construction. One such ship was the Legacy. It was built at one-quarter scale however it was still a huge ship. It mirrored the larger ships in every way; its purpose was to test out a new Warp Core. It was capable of traveling eight times the speed of light. The Legacy would test the Warp Core, Bio-garden and Medical Units to full capacity and beyond. They would test the Cryogenic Sleep Chamber, and the special healing Medic Units, which were designed for major injuries and illnesses. These healing units could heal the body through a cryogenic type sleep. Instead of freezing the patient they were put in suspended animation. The Legacy would be self sufficient by mid journey, complete with raising its own crops and animals for food; in addition the ship had two large tanks for fish both salt water and fresh, for the crew to eat. The crew was not all military but some were pioneers young and strong, couples some with children. It was the greatest hope that others not married would marry and produce children. This would be studied by the medical team as well. If they should come upon a habitable planet, they could deploy the ten townships and start a colony. Sending the Legacy back to Earth with a skeleton crew to give reports and bring back more colony members.
I am a complicated person, an artist, a singer, caregiver and now a storyteller. Most of my life I have quietly sat back listening and watching people. I have listened to many stories and I have seen many things, some not so nice. I am a very spiritual person and turn to God in all things prayer is the answer to every problem.
Two years ago I started to write The Gifts of Dawn Books, and I have cried more in these years, then my entire life. The memories are all coming back and they are not all pretty. Some are down right horrifying. I am a survivor, and the only sane (?) survivor of my immediate family. My mother, stepfather and brother (he committed suicide in my living room, he died in my arms) my aunts and uncle’s have all passed many years ago. My sister is pleasantly insane due to our childhood. My father was a pedophile and we were his toys. In my life I have been beaten, raped physically and mentally. I have been in 3 near fatal accidents and come back with few scares. I have been homeless and I do know hunger, days without food only water. I’ve been a drunk; I have 21 years of sobriety, one day at a time.
My hope for this website is that it grow and prosper one cross-link at a time. I will share my stories with you and I ask you to share your stories with me. I will also say.
“judge not, for you shall be judged with the same measure by which you judge, look always for the good, then if you must look at the bad, and bless it. Look a person in the eye. Say good morning or Goodnight, first. Don’t be afraid to smile and laugh. Laughter is one of God’s greatest gifts to us and we do not use it near enough. God Bless you all and keep you safe … Grandma Scott
