Summary: Strange Trek - a series of Star Trek short-stories that delve into the odd, the macabre, and the inexplicable with undertones of mystery and horror. As Dr. McCoy once opined, "Space is disease and danger wrapped in darkness and silence." Or, more to the point, "In space, no one can hear you scream."

In this third story, Commander Inga Strauss is really creeped out by clowns, though she doesn't really know why. This story will provide the answer. (Originally posted at the TrekBBS in 2008)

Summary: Star Trek: The Lady and the Sword" (formerly titled, "Steel-Edged Grace") is a TOS-era story centered on the first female C.O. of a Constitution-class starship. Captain Grace McAfee was first runner-up to command the USS Enterprise, losing out to James T. Kirk. Her consolation prize was command of the USS Ranger, an older light-cruiser which was destroyed by two mysterious vessels in 2266. McAfee is credited with saving her crew and driving off the attackers, but she loses her ship and goes through an inquest (which clears her of blame). In 2268, she is languishing as in instructor of advanced tactics at the Academy until a series of events change her destiny and place her in the center-seat of a starship.
