Starfire Chapters 1-4

I've posted the first 4 chapters of my new story Starfire and you can find them at the bottom of this page.

Not much to say about them, just exposition and character introductions.  This pretty much gets everything set up for the actual plot to begin.

One thing to explain though is a Wrath of Khan reference that is really kind of obscure.  The ship that the majority of this story will take place on is called The Nordhoff.  Charles Nordhoff is the co-writer of a book called Botany Bay, which is the name of Khan's ship.  Seeing as how Wrath of Khan is one of the greatest sci-fi movies of all time, and it's about a character who is so consumed with rage and vengeance that nothing else matters to him, like the character Jake in this story, I thought it would be fun to toss in some Moby Dick and Wrath of Khan references here and there.
