Group Profiles

       Vacuuming the cat is what writers call any work done to avoid writing, including so called "world building" and background work. Reason? You don't get paid for it. Well, I don't get paid for anything, so when my story muse is on leave I create where I can, and that often means background work, or even speculative stuff I post on Trek Creative. Groups and characters that have not even made an appearance in my stories, and may never. Something to aid my fellow writers in jump starting their own ideas.
       Stuff will appear in several categories. That which matters to the Epiphany Trek universe in some fashion will be noted as such.

Star Unions -- This is a list of the large political units, Federations, Confederations, and Empires. These are the top end of the political food chain. The First and Second Class Stellar Powers that have more than one race within them. Subgroups of the larger one will be included under that particular Star Union.

The Federation -- Our Heroes. The main location in Star Trek, it's where we keep our stuff. Starfleet's hearth and home.
              Federation Center for Disease Control: One of many departments.
              Federation Bureau of Measures & Standards: Another of many departments.
              Federation Councilors: Because Jay asked me to.
       The Ane Confederation -- One of the main races found in my Trek stories. A physical description and rundown on the culture at large. BTW, I am still looking for an artist who can draw the Ane for me, I pay well.
              Ansisi -- Human Ane
              Oz -- Humanoid Ane
                    Office of the Provost -- Oz Police Force
