Battle of the Planets: 2163 by Grumpy Ghost Owl
[ - ]
Summary:

These stories are mostly AU, being an exploration of what might possibly happen after the end of the BotP TV series.  There are also some stories that take place before and during the series.

For me, BotP was always as fascinating for what was implied as for what was clearly shown.  There were so many hints at a large and complex interplanetary society, and it wasn't utopian, like so many SF universes of the time.  In this series of stories, I've tried to paint a bit more of the wider world and the people who populate it.

Summary:

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.

Summary: In BotP canon, we hear quite a bit about Mark's father, but all we know about his mother is that her face was in shadow in that photograph Mark keeps on his nightstand. It's never explicitly stated that she's dead. Maybe she's just resting... or pining for the fjords.
