Aside from the Star Trek TV shows and movies, the
USS Valkyrie stories draw a lot of inspiration from the Star Trek roleplaying
games published by Last Unicorn Games (LUG) and Decipher Inc.
Roleplaying products that have had a rather strong influence on some aspects of the "Valkyrie universe" are some sourcebooks written by Steven S. Long for the Trek RPG by LUG that were never published in print but can be downloaded (with the author's consent) here.
Some characters and background have been developed for and during a roleplaying campaign I was happy to be part of. These include (among others) the characters Dar Enikal and Edward Blake, who are based on characters created by Oliver Schwank and Matthias Dittmann, and have been shamelessly modified for my own writing needs.
Books used as reference include (but are not limited to):
Photomanipulations were done using PaintShop Pro (7.02), in some cases using filters by: Xerographics (http://www.xero-graphics.co.uk/index.htm), Flaming Pear (www.flamingpear.com) and the Eye Candy filters by Alien Skin Software (www.alienskin.com).
