Let's see... you can write up to 12 Bulikaya particle stories. The closer the character is to the explosion of particles, the longer they will travel through the multiverse. The particles have a radioactive half-life that decays quickly, and as the particles decay, the traveler becomes unstuck in that dimension and ‘quantum leaps’ again.

The time spent in other dimensions space themselves out by doubling your time in each alternate dimension- the first one is 30 seconds, then a minute, 2 minutes, 4 minutes, etc. Thus if you just want to write a couple of quick short stories, the character could have been in the back of the room and only ‘leaped’ twice, for 30 seconds then a minute, then back to the home dimension.

You will always appear next to, or near, your local counterpart- that might be at a graveside, but you always appear in proximity to your other ‘local’ analogy.

You will appear at the exact chronological position as your counterpart- for example, a Rita that was never rescued from being a warp ghost on the USS Constitution would have lived 10 years since that point, as chronologically, for Rita, that is 10 years in her past. So if she appeared next to that local analogy, she would be in the year 2270. Otherwise, if the local character has not been shunted to another time period, you won't appear in one. The character will appear next to a local equivalent of exactly the same age.

You can die- people have returned from Bulikaye expeditions dead. So be careful.

So if Thex does one where she'd never went to Earth and joined Starfleet she'd appear next to herself in that timeline?


Correct. The Bulikaya affected character is sent to basically visit with alternate reality versions of herself

So write some interesting takes on your character with this. The exercise is designed to give you the chance to tell some solo stories, and examine the character’s life and choices. What if they had never joined Starfleet, never traveled in time, never quit a different starship positing? This is an opportunity for the existing character to examine a series of ‘what if?’ scenarios, and for you to take a deep dive into the character’s background and choices.

This particular story arc will kick off in Dox's quarters, where Mona has thrown Dox a birthday party. The party's over and only the hangers-on are still there (thus anyone who wants in on the story arc). An intruder will attempt to steal the data crystal, and in the confusion the particles will be released, with the above results. So as that story isn't written yet, just allude to it to leave it open ended for us, and we'll write that when the time comes.

Have fun!
