The Five-Minute Andromeda Subsite FAQ
Q: What is Five-Minute Andromeda?
It's the subsite of Five-Minute Voyager dedicated to Gene Roddenberry's Andromeda. It's referred to by the abbreviation 5MA. (See the main Five-Minute Voyager FAQ for information about the site as a whole.)
Q: Who's in charge?
Q: Is 5MA open for submissions?
Yes, all seasons of Andromeda are available to guest writers. Before you start, read through the Submissions FAQ.
Q: Why has it been so long since the last Andromeda fiver?
I started this subsite when Christian Höhne Sparborth, who had just hired me to write Enterprise fivers for the Trek Nation, asked if I was interested in doing the same for his Andromeda network, SlipstreamWeb. I agreed, and while I didn't do a very consistent job, I continued writing fivers for SSW periodically for the next year and a half. But in early 2003, Christian and the other administrators decided to close SlipstreamWeb for a number of reasons. That meant that 5MA was no longer a commitment to me, and since I have no special enthusiasm for the series, I don't consider adding to this subsite a priority.
However, I do still intend to visit here from time to time. I have at least one nearly-finished fiver on paper that will eventually be published, and I enjoy working with these characters. In addition, there are several unpublished Season 1 guest fivers which have spent far too long in my backlog. Five-Minute Andromeda isn't dead -- it's just dormant.
