Many of you may have already seen this on various other people's journals, but if not:

I'm now seeing Picard acting as some sort of somewhat less trigger-happy Brig-substitute. Which would make Riker Yatesy and...Worf?...Benton...? Well, so much for Trek-UNIT comparisons.

Mentions the Borg and Cybermen as possible enemies. Which would make a kind of sense, because the Borg did kind of steal the Cybermen's act a bit. Provided it didn't deteriorate into Doomsday-style handbags over who were the better group of individuality-deficient cyborgs... Although each group would probably try to assimilate the other, one assumes, leading to some sort of freakish race of CyberBorg hybrids...?!

Hmm.

Hmm, the Cyberplotbunnies are knocking today; big, scary semi-cyborgised bunnies with big guns. That thing below is the physical side of the old silver nemeses, this drabble is my attempt to understand what makes them tick. Once again, I do not own Doctor Who or the Cybermen, that would be the BBC and their original creators.

I’ve written quite a bit about Daleks in my fic, and a bit about the Master, but haven’t really touched any of the other classic Doctor Who enemies. On my to-do list, the obvious ones are the Cybermen, the Sontarans and the Ice Warriors. This is just a scene I wrote; maybe I’ll use it in a story one day, when I think of a good Cybermen story, but I’ll just put it out there in the meantime. I don’t even know who “she” is, a companion presumably, encountering something nasty in one of the storage rooms of a space ship or station, which seems to be the natural environment of these beasties. Tell me who you think “she” is and whether you like my take on the Meanies from Mondas; probably a bit too gruesome and Borglike to be suitable for NuWho, but for some reason I find the all-metal rock ‘em sock ‘em robots of the new series a bit characterless and sterile. Which I suppose is actually appropriate for Cybermen! :-) Obviously, I do not own Doctor Who or the Cybermen; they belong to the BBC and/or their original creators.
