"Klingons and Rumors of Klingons"
 
   Y'know, if I had it to do over again, I would probably have just gone ahead and called the Symphony No. 2 character who originally appeared under the name of B'Elanna Torres something else. It's not unusual for UF characters to diverge, in some cases wildly, from their original sources, but B'Elanna never even really started out as an approximation of the one on TV. She has a similar backstory, the daughter of a Klingon woman and a human guy who was in way the fuck over his head and failed to cope in any way, but she's such a departure from that point on that I find myself suspecting her name may lead to expectations that are... more-than-usually not going to be fulfilled.

This ran through my head just now as I re-read the part of Prelude in A Minor she's in. I like that bit, I like the personal journey it takes her on, but I don't think I did her any favors by assuming she was a variant of an established character when she's ever-more-clearly her own thing entirely.

Connectedly, I find I'm still pretty happy with most of that story, even though a lot of it is setup for things that I may not get around to actually doing now. There are a lot of nice moments there which still stand up. Oddly enough, I don't have the same feeling about the more-or-less-equally divergent figure of Ezri Tigan that I have about B'Elanna. She's supposed to be the-same-character-but-not right from the off, because of the absence of Dax, so she works for me.
