James Kahn @ThatJamesKahn: @ThatJamesKahn @rixshep @scifichat #scifichat when Khan quotes Ahab killing Moby Dick, and we saw that book on his shelf in the first scene

JLichtenberg @JLichtenberg: @MGallowglas That’s what I had to do, put a nag on my google calendar so I’d get the times right #scifichat

JLichtenberg @JLichtenberg: RT @richmagahiz: @ThatJamesKahn Welcome. It was Ricardo Montalban, playing the most awesome member of the Kohanim #scifichat

RobynMcIntyre @robynmcintyre: @DavidRozansky So far, so good – not trending enough for the spam bots to find us – or the trolls #scifichat

Paul Gadzikowski @AKOTAS: @scifichat Intro: Paul Gadzikowski, writer/cartoonist http://arthurkingoftimeandspace.com/0001.htm #scifichat

James Kahn @ThatJamesKahn: #scifichat @scifichat @DavidRozansky David, some of my posts are showing up, some not. What am I doing wrong?

David A. Rozansky @scifichat: #SciFiChat Q1: How well did the mix of Star Lost and #StarTrek work? Why was that?

Rich Magahiz @richmagahiz: @JLichtenberg @DavidRozansky Maybe #VoyagerChat #Scifichat

David Rozansky @DavidRozansky: #SciFiChat Q1: How well did the mix of Star Lost and #StarTrek work? Why was that?

Paul Gadzikowski @AKOTAS: @ThatJamesKahn Are you on the Twitter website or are you using a client like Tweetdeck? #scifichat

JLichtenberg @JLichtenberg: @ThatJamesKahn I RT’d your tweet to show you got posted. Get hashtag right and we’ll see you. #scifichat

David Rozansky @DavidRozansky: @JLichtenberg We’ll just tack on a number or letter and call out the channel, like last week. It went smoothly, so it’ll do. #SciFiChat

Rich Magahiz @richmagahiz: @DavidRozansky A1 At the time people called it a mix of ST and Gilligan’s Island, remember #Scifichat

David Rozansky @DavidRozansky: @ThatJamesKahn let me look at your tweetline and see if I can figure out the problem. #SciFiChat

JLichtenberg @JLichtenberg: I’m Jacqueline Lichtenberg, Prof SF/F/Romance writer and primary author of Bantam Paperback STAR TREK LIVES! New titles coming #scifichat

James Kahn @ThatJamesKahn: #scifichat @JLichtenberg How’s this?

Rick Shepherd @rixshep: @richmagahiz @robynmcintyre @DavidRozansky Speaking of warp drive, scientists now think it is possible: http://tinyurl.com/92oh7es #scifichat: View summary

RobynMcIntyre @robynmcintyre: @richmagahiz That seems harsh – unless you liked GI. #scifichat

RobynMcIntyre @robynmcintyre: @rixshep But still improbable. At least in our lifetimes. Sigh. #scifichat

JLichtenberg @JLichtenberg: @ThatJamesKahn That’s perfect. I’m on http://tweetchat.com/room/scifichat which auto-adds hashtag; also use hootsuite #scifichat

Paul Gadzikowski @AKOTAS: @scifichat A1. I liked Voyager cuz I agreed with the announced mission statement that the franchise should back to exploration. #scifichat

Rick Shepherd @rixshep: @DavidRozansky @ThatJamesKahn Hi! Hailing from Oklahoma. Flatland! #scifichat

David Rozansky @DavidRozansky: @ThatJamesKahn Use the tag #scifichat on all your tweets, and set your search to #scifichat. Try using http://Tweetchat.com #SciFiChat

Rich Magahiz @richmagahiz: @ThatJamesKahn You need to include the hashtag I think, not just reply to @scifichat #scifichat

Rich Magahiz @richmagahiz: @robynmcintyre Who didn’t like Gilligan’s Island? #Scifichat

Paul Gadzikowski @AKOTAS: @robynmcintyre GI was the rerun I watched in the afternoons till I discovered TOS. #scifichat

JLichtenberg @JLichtenberg: @richmagahiz @robynmcintyre hey, even I loved Gilligan’s Island!!! And it wasn’t on a space station! #scifichat

RobynMcIntyre @robynmcintyre: @richmagahiz I always thought of it as a guilty pleasure – like Beverly Hillbillies #scifichat

David Rozansky @DavidRozansky: RT @ThatJamesKahn: @scifichat Sorry, don’t know what Star Lost is. #SciFiChat

Rich Magahiz @richmagahiz: @scifichat A1 Actually I don’t remember Star Lost either #Scifichat

JLichtenberg @JLichtenberg: @richmagahiz @robynmcintyre you could argue that Gilligan’s Island did have aliens…. #scifichat

David Rozansky @DavidRozansky: #SciFiChat Q2: What stories or tropes from #StarTrek Voyager did you find interesting? Why? #scifi #TV

David A. Rozansky @scifichat: #SciFiChat Q2: What stories or tropes from #StarTrek Voyager did you find interesting? Why? #scifi #TV

James Kahn @ThatJamesKahn: #scifichat Okay, trying again. Here I am, all. At your service.

RobynMcIntyre @robynmcintyre: @JLichtenberg Everyone on that show was an alien, I think. #scifichat

David Rozansky @DavidRozansky: Star Lost was a short lived British scifi, a spaceship meandering aimlessly through space. #SciFiChat

Monica Pierce @MonicaEPierce: GI is like Twinkies for your mind. #scifichat

JLichtenberg @JLichtenberg: RT @ThatJamesKahn: #scifichat Okay, trying again. Here I am, all. At your service. #scifichat

RobynMcIntyre @robynmcintyre: @scifichat I particularly liked the Medical Hologram as it ‘awakened’ #scifichat

JLichtenberg @JLichtenberg: RT @DavidRozansky: Star Lost was a short lived British scifi, a spaceship meandering aimlessly through space. #scifichat

Rick Shepherd @rixshep: @robynmcintyre Many things were once improbable. Technology advances on a curve. Any movement in the right direction… #scifichat

Rich Magahiz @richmagahiz: @scifichat A2 Is @JeriRyan a trope? #Scifichat

Monica Pierce @MonicaEPierce: I’ll be lurkin’ while I’m workin’ today. #scifichat

JLichtenberg @JLichtenberg: @MonicaEPierce The thing with good comedy like GI is that under the laughs and gaffs there’s a real point being made #scifichat

RobynMcIntyre @robynmcintyre: @richmagahiz Included just for the fan boys. Gave me a headache. #scifichat

Rich Magahiz @richmagahiz: @scifichat (That should be @JeriLRyan) #Scifichat

David Rozansky @DavidRozansky: The seasons where the character that had a 9-year life span. How she saw the world was interesting. #SciFiChat

James Kahn @ThatJamesKahn: @scifichat #scifichat Q2: I liked Critical Care because of relevance to our current health care debate. The best of ST reflected who we are

Monica Pierce @MonicaEPierce: @JLichtenberg That’s the case with any good genre material. Or it isn’t very good. #scifichat

Paul Gadzikowski @AKOTAS: @scifichat A2. My favorite episodes were One Small Step and the one with the music and the persecuted telepaths. #scifichat

JLichtenberg @JLichtenberg: A2 VOYAGER trope is the “Lost Ship” and find your way home odyssey. It succeeded with Janeway, failed with GET HOME #scifichat

Rich Magahiz @richmagahiz: @JLichtenberg @MonicaEPierce Last week I was tweeting an analogy between Wagner’s Ring series and the Beverly Hillbillies #Scifichat

RobynMcIntyre @robynmcintyre: @richmagahiz You are a sick puppy. #scifichat

JLichtenberg @JLichtenberg: @MonicaEPierce There’s a lot of comedy around that doesn’t have that underlying gnaw-on-it thought #scifichat

David Rozansky @DavidRozansky: Last week we talked about AI. The Doctor on ST:V and his struggle to be an accepted crewmember counts, right? #SciFiChat

Monica Pierce @MonicaEPierce: @richmagahiz That’s epic

JLichtenberg @JLichtenberg: A2 I feel Jack Campbell’s LOST FLEET series (and a new one in that universe) do Voyager better than Voyager did #scifichat

Paul Gadzikowski @AKOTAS: @scifichat A2. I liked the development of holographic characters as sentients but I thought it was underdeveloped. #scifichat

JLichtenberg @JLichtenberg: A2 when VOYAGER came on, the kickass heroine wasn’t that popular among that target audience. #scifichat

RobynMcIntyre @robynmcintyre: @AKOTAS I’d go along with that – could have been its own series #scifichat

M. Todd Gallowglas @MGallowglas: #SciFiChat A2: I thought that the Holo Doctor’s quest for a name was an interesting take on the search for self-identity.

David Rozansky @DavidRozansky: #SciFiChat Q3: #StarTrek franchise much room for expansion, what other concepts can merge with Star Trek concept? #scifi #TV #books

David A. Rozansky @scifichat: #SciFiChat Q3: #StarTrek franchise much room for expansion, what other concepts can merge with Star Trek concept? #scifi #TV #books

JLichtenberg @JLichtenberg: @DavidRozansky YES – ST:V “doctor” hologram was part AI, using brain pattern of a real person though #scifichat

Rich Magahiz @richmagahiz: @JLichtenberg It was before Jessica Alba had been invented #Scifichat

David Rozansky @DavidRozansky: @JLichtenberg You’d have to ask @ThatJameskahn, but I am gussing that was why 5 of 9 showed up. #SciFiChat

JLichtenberg @JLichtenberg: @DavidRozansky ST:V’s doctor was “Spock’s Brain” done right. #scifichat

James Kahn @ThatJamesKahn: #scifichat @scifichat @DavidRozansky Absolutely. As do Data, and all cyber intels. Read Moon Is A Harsh Mistress by Heinlein.

JLichtenberg @JLichtenberg: @richmagahiz In some ways Jessica Alba could be derivative of Janeway. (I’m a double-dyed Janeway fan!) #scifichat

Rich Magahiz @richmagahiz: @scifichat A3 Keeping Up with the Cardassians #Scifichat

Paul Gadzikowski @AKOTAS : @robynmcintyre That’s a good idea. If the rest of the cast had properly recognized the EMH’s personhood, (cont) #scifichat

JLichtenberg @JLichtenberg: @ThatJamesKahn Oh, you mentioned MOON IS A HARSH MISTRESS before I did this week. You get a prize! #scifichat

Rick Shepherd @rixshep: @scifichat #scifichat A2: I liked the fact that the series actually allowed major character evolution throughout. Even for the holograms!

theakpal @theakpal: @DavidRozansky #scifichat a3: Before STTNG ended and they were talking about a new ST series, a friend of mine had a great idea 1/2

JLichtenberg @JLichtenberg: @DavidRozansky Oddly, I liked 5 of 9 as well, though as with Janeway, I thought they really didn’t know what to do with her. #scifichat

James Kahn @ThatJamesKahn: #scifichat @scifichat Voyager was, indeed, a merging with the Odyssey. I think you could merge it with any number of other myths. Iliad?

RobynMcIntyre @robynmcintyre: A3: ST and Discworld #scifichat

David Rozansky @DavidRozansky: I want to see a Klingon political thriller done as a four-year series on HBO. #SciFiChat

Paul Gadzikowski @AKOTAS: @robynmcintyre (cont) there could’ve been a followup series on the theme of recognizing holograms and other AIs as Fed citizens. #scifichat

RobynMcIntyre @robynmcintyre: @DavidRozansky That would be epic #scifichat

Rich Magahiz @richmagahiz: @robynmcintyre ST and Galaxy Quest #Scifichat

theakpal @theakpal: @DavidRozansky #scifichat Star Trek: Black ops/Special Forces type missions. 2/2

RobynMcIntyre @robynmcintyre: @richmagahiz LOLOL #scifichat

James Kahn @ThatJamesKahn: #scifichat @richmagahiz @scifichat Nice.

RobynMcIntyre @robynmcintyre: @theakpal Good one #scifichat

JLichtenberg @JLichtenberg: Now we have BUFFY and all the vamp show tough women, and today these kickass heroines have a place on SF/TV #scifichat

Amie Gallette @amiegallette: #ff”@MGallowglas: #SciFiChat A2: I thought that the Holo Doctor’s quest for a name was an interesting take on the search for self-identity.”

Paul Gadzikowski @AKOTAS: @scifichat A3. The series I just hypothesized to @robinmcintyre. #scifichat

M. Todd Gallowglas @MGallowglas: #SciFiChat A3: I’m intrigued by rumors of this Star Trek: Renegades thing I keep hearing about.

David Rozansky @DavidRozansky: I’d also like to see the Romulan civil war played out as a drama serial. #SciFiChat

RobynMcIntyre @robynmcintyre: ST and Hitchiker’s. I’d love to see Spock get chewed out by the cow at the Restaurant at the end of the Universe #scifichat

Monica Pierce @MonicaEPierce: @JLichtenberg Thank god we have tough female MCs now. #scifichat

Rich Magahiz @richmagahiz: @DavidRozansky “Is it true that you are in favor of sparing the 47% of non-taxpayers?” #Scifichat

JLichtenberg @JLichtenberg: @AKOTAS yes, DATA wanted to be a “real boy” too — which is part of the kickass heroine thread, women wanting to BE recognized #scifichat

David Rozansky @DavidRozansky: @MGallowglas Do tell. I’ve not heard about it yet. #SciFiChat

Monica Pierce @MonicaEPierce: RT @DavidRozansky: Id also like to see the Romulan civil war played out as a drama serial. << Yes! #scifichat David A. Rozansky @scifichat: That ends discussion period of today’s #SciFiChat. It’s time for the interview. Let’s please quiet down and give @ThatJamesKahn the floor.

David Rozansky @DavidRozansky: That ends discussion period of today’s #SciFiChat. It’s time for the interview. Let’s please quiet down and give @ThatJamesKahn the floor.

RobynMcIntyre @robynmcintyre: @JRSinason Yeah – spies on DS9. That was good. #scifichat

David Rozansky @DavidRozansky: #SciFiChat

JLichtenberg @JLichtenberg: @MonicaEPierce Yes, and the tough female has been my crusading point all my career. I won 1st Romantic Times Award for SF with it #scifichat

Joshua Sinason @JRSinason: A3 they missed the boat on doing a post dominion war show set around Cardassia #Scifichat

David A. Rozansky @scifichat: Welcome to #SciFiChat, @ThatJamesKahn! Please, start by twelling us in 140 characters about World Enough, and Time.

James Kahn @ThatJamesKahn: #scifichat @scifichat Again: In W of K I loved Khan quoting Ahab in final scene, noting his copy of Moby Dick on his shelf in first scene

James Kahn @ThatJamesKahn: #scifichat @scifichat Genetically engineered mythologic creatures wiping out humans in 2300. Re-released on Sept 27 with new chapters

David A. Rozansky @scifichat: .@ThatJamesKahn How did you get the coveted assignment to novelize Star Wars IV? #SciFiChat

James Kahn @ThatJamesKahn: #scifichat @scifichat ROTJ – Spielberg recommended me after I novelized Poltergeist, as did Judy Lynn Del Rey, who first published WEAT…

James Kahn @ThatJamesKahn: #scifichat @scifichat …And Judy Lynn, who loved World Enough and Time, was also publishing ROTJ

David A. Rozansky @scifichat: @ThatJamesKahn What are you working on now? #SciFiChat

Thaddeus Howze @ebonstorm: At hospital with son. Wish I was at #scifichat.

James Kahn @ThatJamesKahn: #scifichat @scifichat Rewriting Time’s Dark Laughter, the 2nd book in the trilogy after WEAT. Also writing a new reincarnation thriller.

David Rozansky @DavidRozansky: @ebonstorm I hope all is OK. Let me know if there is anything we can do. #SciFiChat

James Kahn @ThatJamesKahn: @ebonstorm #scifichat Hope your son is okay

David A. Rozansky @scifichat: What advice would you give authors who want to novelize movies and the like? #SciFiChat

JLichtenberg @JLichtenberg: @ebonstorm Sympathies and good wishes #scifichat

Thaddeus Howze @ebonstorm: He will be fine. Viral infection; treating symptoms. See you next week. #scifichat

JLichtenberg @JLichtenberg: @ThatJamesKahn @ebonstorm is one of our best contributors on this chat, very knowledgable, esp. Trek #scifichat

Monica Pierce @MonicaEPierce: @ebonstorm :( Not fun for any of you. Wishing him a speedy recovery. #scifichat

David A. Rozansky @scifichat: .@ThatJamesKahn What advice would you give authors who want to novelize movies and the like? #SciFiChat

James Kahn @ThatJamesKahn: #scifichat @scifichat Novelizing, you gotta be asked. Publishing your own novel is much easier, and if someone likes it, you might get asked

February Grace @FebruaryGrace: Sorry I’m coming in so late, I just had to stop in when I saw who today’s guest was, ROTJ is my favorite SW novelization. #scifichat 1/2

David A. Rozansky @scifichat: .@ThatJamesKahn Does your medical background leak into your writing? Is it helpful or a hindrance? #SciFiChat

February Grace @FebruaryGrace: I remember when it came out back in the day, I was 12. Carried it with me everywhere, read it and reread until it fell apart. #scifichat 2/2

James Kahn @ThatJamesKahn: #scifichat @ebonstorm ibuprophen for fever, don’t take otc cold remedies if he’s too young, give him lots of liquids. I’m an MD too.

James Kahn @ThatJamesKahn: #scifichat @FebruaryGrace Thank you so much. It was my favorite one to write, too.

Paul Gadzikowski @AKOTAS: @scifichat It’s chemo day (two out of three Fridays are, till November at least), and time to pack up and go home. l8r, #scifichat

James Kahn @ThatJamesKahn: #scifichat @scifichat It leaks all over the place, and is a great help. Partly just the science of it, partly all the human drama I’ve seen

February Grace @FebruaryGrace: @ThatJamesKahn I remember how the Luke/Leia scene on Endor made me cry. I remember thinking I wished I could write like that. #scifichat

Roqoo Depot @RoqooDepot: @ThatJamesKahn #scifichat What’s one of the hardest things you’ve ever written? (be it a book or portion of a book)

David A. Rozansky @scifichat: Okay, let’s open the floor to questions. Who would like to ask @ThatJameKahn a question? #SciFiChat

JLichtenberg @JLichtenberg: http://ht.ly/dTP2R #scifichat Just uploaded Dominion War: Part 7 – Attack of the Klingons (new version): View video

David Rozansky @DavidRozansky: .@ThatJamesKahn Will you be at StoryWorld next month? I’ll be speaking at the jointly held @WritersDigestConference #SciFiChat

JLichtenberg @JLichtenberg: I agented A. C. Crispin’s 1st novel, YESTERDAY’S SON, (ST Pocket), & she went on to stellar career in novelizations & tie-ins #scifichat

James Kahn @ThatJamesKahn: #scifichat @RoqooDepot The father/son reconciliation scene as Vader is dying was hard to make poignant during all the explosions

JLichtenberg @JLichtenberg: So I can endorse @ThatJamesKahn ‘s advice, write YOUR OWN novel, impress socks off, then get toe into tie-ins/novelizations #scifichat

theakpal @theakpal: @ThatJamesKahn #scifichat What’s with all the re-writes? Was there something wrong with the originals?

JLichtenberg @JLichtenberg: @ThatJamesKahn I have seen many panels at SF cons these days on whole separate profession of tie-ins #scifichat

James Kahn @ThatJamesKahn: #scifichat @DavidRozansky @WritersDigestConfere Just came back from Chicon7, kind of conferenced-out.
