Federation Starbase 23 - Kadh2000's Stories

Kadh2000's Stories

Hi! I'm Kadh. Well, my SFB/SFC alter-ego is Kadh anyway. In real life I was born on at an air force base in Langley, Virginia. I now live in Windber, Pennsylvania. I work as a computer network administrator. I'm a published author since 1975. I've haven't written anything that's been published since 1985. "The Men of Balan-gal" is a short story in an anthology somewhere. There's a book of poetry called "Set One". It's no longer in print. I can't even find a copy. There's also a children's book called "The NO Book". That's probably easier to find.

I have a wife (since 1987), a cat (since 1989), and a daughter (since 1995). As a corollary I have a mother-in-law, fur balls to cleanup, and a fear of the daughter's future boyfriends. I have been interested in Star Trek as long as I can remember. In college I discovered Starfleet Battles and was instantly hooked. Somehow I always ended up playing the Klingons. I guess I've always had this thing for villains: Darth Vader is my favorite Star Wars character. I continued to play mostly Klingons throughout my college years. When I graduated, there wasn't time for board games. Even worse, there wasn't anyone to play them with.

Fast forward many years and SFC appeared. I had by then settled into mundane life. I had a D&D group and was content. SFC led to the Interplay boards and then the Taldren boards. I don't remember who it was that talked me into writing my first fanfic there. I think it was Blyre. It was obvious that I should fall back on my Klingon interest and create a character of that race. Kadh was born. His name came from my own. In a junior high school code, my last name translated to Kadhdh. I dropped the redundant letters and there was my captain.

Do Not Feed the Kadh sign

Most of my stories were written with Kadh as a captain in the Klingon Deep Space Fleet. I certainly imagined Klingons like I saw them in TOS, and not as they appeared in the newer movies and television shows. Kadh's world is that of SFB. The events that occur in it come from the history of that game and its timeline. There are a lot of people I am grateful to for the encouragement I received to start writing. Most of the gratitude now belongs at the feet of Scott Bennie and Blyre. From Interplay, Taldren, Dynaverse.net, and now finally Starbase 23, Kadh has traveled a long way. Enjoy his story.
