I've now finished this and have to say that I enjoyed it immensely. I agree with both sides of the argument regarding Ree's actions, and although I'm sure the hearing will likely be referenced in the next book or something, I would think Riker might decide to put a reprimand in Ree's permanent file, just like Sisko did to Worf after the latter saved Jadzia at the expense of the mission at hand.
I didn't think the science was too much, since I enjoy Christopher
's real-science approach to Trek. I'm looking forward to his next outing.
Just one question, is the Horne
a Flyer-class heavy shuttle or just a heavy shuttle with no class name?
