WOW...I'm going to have to print this out and read this over the holidays. Its novel quality NX! ...
Hurry up with the next chapters NX. C'mon who's more important? Your brother whom you've not seen in months or us anonymous posters on TrekBBS?
All kidding aside, I'm glad that your brother's safe and home with family for this Christmas (or whatever holiday you celebrate)!
I'm hoping to have the next sections up within the next 24 hours. Plenty more chapters will be coming.
