How would you suggest writing a marathon story? Include terminals with 1st person view, terminals with 3rd person view, without terminals, or whatever you think would be best.

I made mine up as a went along. In hindsight, perhaps that wasn't such a good idea, but hey. It's working out fine. Ish.

Well, I guess if it was Marathonish way, you could try writing out the entire plot in a very linear sense. Then you could look for cultural items that slightly relate to your plot and write those in liu of one of those linear events. (Separate Paragraphs perhaps). Or you could do an Owen Meany any jump around chronologically, but still tell a linear story. Like Drictelt said, anything that works.

You're this dude, and there are these aliens. Kill them before they kill you. The number 7. Find a way into the next level.

There's your story.

the lightning bolt?
i like it.

maybe you can run with that. what if the character is revived after X years to do a very very short (or what is intended to be)
fix of some appendage on the ship that the s'pht can't do themselves. they need a humanoid.
almost like a representation of the process of revival, if you'd be informed as to what happened for the past X years,
while still being reminded you, although fate, are still a pawn, etc.
