Created with Artmatic Voyager 2 and Pro 5
Inspired by a favourite Star Trek TNG Episode – “Tin Man” is the 68th episode of the television series. The 20th episode of the third season.
‘Tinman’ (the ship) – Gomtuu was manned by a crew until an explosion in space generated radiation that penetrated Gomtuu’s ‘hull’, killing the crew. Gomtuu wandered the galaxy for millenia after the traumatic experience, vainly searching for more of its kind. Alone and without a purpose, it eventually decided to commit suicide by orbiting the soon-to-go-supernova star Beta Stromgren.
Betazoid Federation emissary Tam Elbrun is beamed aboard and the two entities bond with each other, Tam provided Gomtuu with an alternative to suicide, and Gomtuu provided Elbrun with the tranquility and purpose he had always been seeking ……
I do love a happy ending :-)
