WHAT ARE THE VALKYRIE CHRONICLES?
The Valkyrie Chronicles are, for want of a better term, companion stories of the Anglo-Force series. Set in the 24th century, the characters made their first appearance during the Anglo-Force story "The Formation & the Return of Saruman".
Based on the Star Trek universe but with original creations and additions from other fictional universes the stories centre on the lives and mission of the crew of the U.S.S. Valkyrie, a starship from the United Federation of Planets under the command of Captain James Watt, descendant of the legendary 21st century superhero.
Captain Watt isn't the only link to Anglo-Force in the story. The ship's first officer Commander Arthur Pendragon is a distant relative of the legendary White Knight, while the immortal Istarian wizard Dr. Phineas Magus serves as a roving Federation ambassador/trouble shooter.
As with the Anglo-Force stories this isn't the first Valkyrie Chronicles series that was written. Some of the characters here were originally portrayed in a series written in the 1980's called "Defenders of the Galaxy", which was based on my collection of action figures. The series later morphed into the first Valkyrie Chronicles. Sadly none of these stories exist anymore.
New (old) stories will continue to be added to this blog over time, and they'll eventually lead into what was my biggest multi-crossover story ever. But for now here's a few stories to bid you over.
