Keep your story ideas

A few years ago, I was extremely excited to hear about the new Star Trek series Discovery. I started thinking about all the ways I wanted the new series to be. For example, I felt like we already have this flashy over-the-top Hollywood, explosion-filled Star Trek movie. Which are fine, they're entertaining. But I felt like it would be neat to see a more down-to-earth character-driven story that deals with Gene Roddenberry's original ideals of the show.


I then realised that it was pointless to worry about what the show would be like. It was very likely it would not be in line with what I thought it should be. The better option would be to put this energy into my own work

I then went on to develop the character for my comic, Bored in Space. I spent a couple of years playing around with the characters. You can see my early attempts here.
