    You have got to be kidding! This crew flies to a different galaxy through an alien gateway, wrecks and lands on inhabited planets THAT SPEAK ENGLISH!!! and are romantically(?) compatible. Give me a break!

      Hi Gene. I hope you had a very lovely Christmas and a safe and happy New Year. Perhaps my stories aren’t what you are looking for. It would be a very short story if no one could communicate or the reader couldn’t understand the language of half of the characters—-and well, I do write romance in my stories. I came up with the idea for this story at the McDonald Observatory in Fort Davis, TX while at a star party. My hubby does astrophotography. The sad fact that we are likely to never meet anyone else in the universe because of the distance between our galaxy and others and the continued drifting apart makes imagining being able to travel and meet others who we can relate to and communicate with even more special. Some of my favorite SF stories, like Stargate, Star Wars, Star Trek, Starman, have been a huge influence in my writing and in my love for SF/SFR. Perhaps this will help you understand why I write the way I do.
