Space. It's big, it's scary and there are lots of weird places
These are the adventures of the starship Silverado.
Her crews never-ending mission: to keep her in one piece.

Welcome to my little corner of the Star Traks Nexus! Star Traks; Silverado chronicles the adventures of Captain Christopher Stafford and the crew of the (you guessed it!)
U.S.S. Silverado as they take abuse from Starfleet Command, crazed construction crews, super-feminist aliens, each other, each other and oh, did I mention, each other?

October 18th: OK. Life-altering changes made. Life hectic and crazy. But Season 4 of Silverado is currently being written! Not sure yet when I'll be ready to start posting, but hopefully it will be soon. In the meantime, anybody have suggestions for a web stats tracker that doesn't include annoying pop-ups?
June 12th: I guess I haven't posted news in a while. Two things: First, the Machinima project is finished. Click the 'Machinima' link to your left to few the final episodes. Still only YouTube quality, I'm afraid, but I can't find enough webspace for the high-quality version. Second, while work has commenced on Silverado Season 4, I'm in the midst of making some pretty major life changes. Location, career, lifestyle, everything is changing. For the better, I hope. But I don't know how much time I'll have for writing, so Season 4 may take a while.
February 4th: For anybody needing a Silverado fix now that Season 3 is over...anybody? Anybody? Damn. Well, for the rest of you, check out Episode 5 of the Star Traks Machinima series by clicking the Machinima link to your left.
January 14th: The Season 3 finale is now available. Closing off the third year of Silverado, we have 5 officers vying for 1 position. Who's going to come out on top? Find out on the Season 3 page!
