Re: Star Trek: Destiny: Mere Mortals - SPOILER Thread

Jeremy, thanks for the detailed analysis of Mere Mortals. To answer one of your questions, about whether I intentionally paralleled the themes and ideas of John Milton's Paradise Lost in the Hernandez story arc, note the epigraph of the book — which I selected precisely for its relevance to her story:

Our torments also may in length of time
Become our elements, these piercing fires
As soft as now severe, our temper changed
Into their temper.
—John Milton, Paradise Lost, book 2
Also, because you seem to have a keen eye for religious allusions in the text, I think you'll find a lot to dig into with Lost Souls. Enjoy!
