Grew up with Battle of the Planets and daydreamed about it every day the rest of my life. Finally found the Gatchaman version thus igniting the passion further.

I write fanfic mostly in the Gatchaverse, with only a few stories being posted, the rest remain on my hard drive. I do art for the characters. And I'm a beta reader.

I can beta read for the BotP and Gatch versions as I'm most familiar with those characterizations. My skills tend towards stripping out excess wordage, turning passive voice to active, finding plot holes, and creating dialogue - I love dialogue. I'll beta read most anything. I'm slow at it.

A rewrite of the BotP Episode, Ace From Outer Space. This is an answer to the 'rewrite a silly episode so that it makes sense' challenge. G-Force are just starting to hit their stride as a team and Galaxy Security is a dog's breakfast in a colander: very messy and full of leaks. There'll be tears before bedtime, mark my words.

This story forms part of the BotP: 2163 series. Click on the series link below to view the recommended reading order.

Hey Nancy! Great rewrite! Especially the part on the whip, I always hated that Mark threw that thing in the ocean (wth?!) Very sad backstory for Captain Doom, and mysterious as well. The backstory for Princess was good, too. Nice work!

Author's Response: Thanks, Sal.  Credit must go to Catherine for coming up with the idea about the tip of the whip.  That part where Mark throws the whip away was always the bit that did my head in, too.  That and the part about the asteroid, oh, and the part about the team volunteering for the mission, and the part about the air show, and the part... actually, just about the whole episode!
