This is great stuff. I can't wait to see how the two groups manage to work together. There will of course be plenty of friction, but they need to overcome it for the mission to be a success. We all know the outcome, but getting there is the interesting part.
Isn't that what Garak kept telling Bashir about Cardassian murder mysteries?
Hey, thank you for reading as well!
I think the comment about their "enigma tales" is that everybody's guilty: the question is, who's guilty of what? (A sentiment that as a Dostoyevsky fan, I actually find very true to life. But that's a whole other can of worms--just look up the character of Father Zosima if you want to find out more about that.)
Without giving too much away, there will definitely be growing pains, and at several different phases throughout this, sure!
