A new episode of the Paddcast brings a 118Wiki roundtable Discussion, featuring Roshanara Rahman and Sky Blake with Lazarus Davis and James Colquhoun! And don’t miss the Captain’s Corner featuring Aron Kells (CO of the USS Thor) with German Galven.
We’re here with another interview with a newer member of our community. The title of this column is “Lower Decks,” hearkening back to the Star Trek: The Next Generation episode titled “Lower Decks,” in which junior officers aboard the Enterprise-D speculate on the reasons for recent unusual actions taken by the command crew near the Cardassian border.
This month’s interview is with the writer behind Ensign James Colquhoun playing a Human male Tactical Officer assigned to the USS Columbia.
GALVEN: Thank you for allowing me to interview you! Could you tell us a little about yourself for our readers out there?
COLQUHOUN: Sure. I’m a Charlotte, NC native but moved to Bloomington, IN about a decade ago for school. I finished my undergrad recently in philosophy and started a masters program in cybersecurity. I work in IT for Indiana University. One thing I will for Bloomington, we embrace the claim to fame of Jameway being born here. There’s a group of people working right now to install a Captain Janeway statue in town.
Having joined in November, what has been your favorite moment writing aboard the USS Columbia?
Probably our shore leave rotation on the planet Losaria. I think the whole crew enjoyed that, getting to create a whole world and culture as we went. Losaria still comes up in sims as fond memories for everyone.
