Author's Summary:
A multi-fandom vid for [livejournal.com profile] halfamoon's celebration of female characters.

Review:
calapine makes an unconventional but beautiful choice with her song, and for something so epic in scope, she makes it impactful on a personal scale as well, and deeply uplifting. This tribute is amazing not only for its subject matter, but also for its diversity. Women are not just awesome when they are gorgeous and kick-ass and come out with both guns blazing, but they're also awesome when they're doing science experiments, or being brave, or making difficult decisions.

Women can be some of the most harshly judged characters on screen -- because often, women are their own harshest critics. This vid highlights some unexpected choices, and reminds us that every single woman is more than just the few seconds we see them on screen -- they each have their own stories.

Author's Summary:
"Set first season -- Trip and T'Pol try to find some common ground."

Review:
A chance encounter late at night makes Trip and T'Pol realized that they are not as different as they expected.

Though Vulcan is one of the most well known (if not the most well known) species in the "Star Trek" universe, in both canon and fanom Vulcans tend to be portrayed as a somewhat monolithic, highly-cultured people. Artaxastra breaks this image and give us a glimpse of a rich, varied Vulcan whose regional cultural differences affect the way its inhabitants act and are perceived. Through Trip and T'Pol's conversation - which seamlessly moves from regional cuisines to the different interpretations of Surakian teachings - we get to better understand not only the characters, but also their cultures and backgrounds. Though some of the information shared by T'Pol has been disproved in later seasons of Enterprise, this still remains a highly interesting and very well written fic.

Title: riyeht-staya.

Length: Long (~21,300 words).

Review:
Vulcan scientist Skon is accused of murder and it's up to the Enterprise crew to clear his name and avoid the execution of the heir to Vulcan's most prominent family.

"riyeht-staya" reads like the novelization (and a very well written one at that) of a great Star Trek episode. The 'whodunit' element of the plot keeps the reader engaged, but it's the characters that really give the story its power. The Enterprise's crewmembers are very much in character and T'Pol in particular is given a chance to shine - her inner conflicts and repressed feelings are wonderfuly written. The insights we get about Vulcans, both as individuals and as a society, are one of my favorite parts of the fic, as is the short epilogue which connects the fic with the Trek mythos we are most familiar with.

Mockingbird by Credential (PG)

Title: Mockingbird.
Music Used: Mockingbird by Low Millions.
Fandom: Star Trek: Enterprise.
Pairing: Trip/T’Pol.
Warnings: None.

Vidder on Youtube: JL246

I’d never heard this song before watching the video, but it turned to be a perfect choice for Trip/T’Pol, as the vidder has shown by matching the song lyrics perfectly with scenes of the series. It really shows the somewhat volatile nature of their relationship, focusing in particular on T’Pol’s indecision about what to do regarding her feelings for Trip.

Review: 
The Enterprise receives a garbled transmission from a mining station, a joint Human/Andorian/Vulcan project. Once they arrive to investigate, they find one that one of the crew members has died in a suspicious accident and that a possible saboteur lurks about.

Written in the best “whodunit” tradition, the fic captures you from the start: was the crewmember’s death really an accident? Is there a saboteur on the station? Is it only one person behind the strange happenings or are there people working together? While the reader does not have access to all the clues to figure it out by his or herself, it’s fascinating to watch the characters piece everything together.

One of the other things I really enjoyed about this story is that it does not sacrifice character interaction and development for the sake of the plot. Set between “Bound” and “Demons”, it shows us a possible side of Trip and T’Pol’s relationship that was barely explored on the show: they finally recognize their bond and their feelings for each other and try, slowly, too develop their relationship.

Striking a great balance between its well developed mystery plot and the lovely Trip/T'Pol interaction, “The Thin Man Beams Aboard” is a great Enterprise fic.

The Thin Man Beams Aboard.
And its sequel
Thin Man Overboard.
