Have I found it?

I think I may have a subject for my NaNoWriMo book.

It's fanfiction, of a sort, but bear with me.

Star Trek: Voyager, fanfiction.

I was thinking tonight about what the Doctor should do, now that he's back in federation space. It seems too restrictive to expect him to just become an emergency medical hologram for some other Chief Medical Officer. I'm also not happy just making him CMO on a ship. So I started thinking . . .

What if they assign him to supervise the modification of the other Mark I EMHs? He has proven himself a valuable senior officer, so there is no reason why the other Mark Is should continue to be Dilithium miners. They may not be able to make another Data, but they have something almost as valuable mining dilithium like grunts. If the Dastrom Institute manages to recreate the mobile emitter, the Mark Is will be invaluable. Starfleet needs good officers if they are ever going to bounce back from the Dominion.

Who should go with him to help? Barclay? Data? Dr Zimmermann? Since it was under her command that the Doctor blossomed, one of Janeway's responsibilities as Admiral should be to oversee this project, but I almost want to see how the Doctor will fare without her support. Maybe I'm just afraid to try to write Janeway!

I think there may be a book here.

So does this completely suck? Is there a book here? I need support/suggestions/raspberries (preferably more of the former than the latter).

The Doctor is married now. picture little holograms with mobile emitters running around, the pitter-patter of photons & forcefields. The possibilities are endless my friend!

A new wrinkle
I forgot about the Doctor's family. Did you see the episode Real Life? Maybe I should incorporate them in. Either that, or create some new blonde bimbo to be his sidekick. Or maybe I could go with the other dimension Kes that Jeri Taylor created in one of her books, and bring her back into the Doctor's life. Hmm, food for thought (of course, now my thoughts are turning to food)

Re: A new wrinkle
I had this funny Image of the Doctor attending some kind of conference with other Starfleet Medical Officers in a Remada out in the Nevada desert. Door prizes, pool side drinks, tennis?

All of a sudden a militant army hell bent on bringing down the federation kidnap all the doctors. blah blah blah blah..then a new federation task force is created to rescue the hostages, not to mention taking out a highly advanced ship - more advanced than the sovereign(sp?) class Enterprise E.

my fan-fic always sounds more moronic than most.

Hi Sir!

Sounds like you've got a great idea! I've never been a fan of the show but I have enjoyed reading...more for my imagaination to wander.

Good Luck!
