Re: Star Trek: Deep Space Nine--The Cleanest Food To Find

Thanks, Nasat--very much!

BTW, I would also think that fans who've read the Destiny trilogy, et al, would be interested in Ezri's first meeting with the man who would one day become her Chief Medical Officer on the Aventine.

I must admit, the story spung out of a desire to answer my own question of why Ezri had hand-picked Simon to be the CMO, out of all her options. (I had been wondering why she didn't pick Julian--but then I'd learned about what had happened in Unjoined....*sigh*)

I figured there must have been some kind of connection, some element of familiarity. And then I remembered Simon's place in the Star Trek canon. And...the rest is history.
