Star Trek: The Next Generation (Starship Mine)

             This episode is described as the Die Hard episode on a giant wall-sized poster I used to have on my wall in a formal haunt.

In this outing the Enterprise is parked at a space dock for reformatting and repairs. Unknown to the crew there is a group of “terrorists” on board planning to take it over while nobody is on board. Fortunately the captain has gone back to his quarters to retrieve his saddle. 

While on board he discovers the attempted take over and takes out the bad guys one and a time claiming to be Mott the barber the entire time. 

Does he succeed? Is the ship lost forever? I’ll give you a hint this is a one-part episode in the middle on only the second season of a seven series show. 

                                                                                                                                                                                   (Grade A)

A note from an editor!

Hi Matthew,

Thank you for the time and effort you put into this piece, especially on a Saturday morning. I can tell you definitely took good notes of everything that was going on during the event!

We still have some work to do before this piece is ready to print. Your piece has a lot of information, but it doesn’t sound like a news article. What was the point of his speech/presentation? Why was he addressing this audience? What is Vanguard? What does the company do – who does it serve? You spend a lot of time narrating (for example, how he was injured), but did not report on the purpose of the event. You can maybe mention his appearance/joking about it in a sentence or two, but do not take several paragraphs to do so. Also, I like how you mentioned where the name “Vanguard” comes from.

There are a lot of spelling errors in this piece – make sure you proof read each sentence carefully.

I know I am getting back to you a little later I hoped, and I’m sorry about that! But if you have time tonight, please go through my suggestions and try to rework your piece. You can send me what you have tonight/tomorrow morning. Please bring a copy of it to the meeting tomorrow and we will discuss it further from there.

Once again, thanks for your hard work and promptness! Remember this is a learning process, and we are all part of the Waltonian team!

Talk to you soon!
