Agreed, great start to you new Lexington
story with a lot going on.
An away team to a planet full of 20th century xenophobes? I think I've seen enough TOS to know that everything will be just fine ... just fine.
I liked Wesley's decision to beam the Halenoi on board. It kinda reminded me of something Kirk would have done. ... oh and I like that you are keeping the TOS sex appeal. Nice!
Looking foward to see in what directions you'll take us with this one.
