Re: November Challenge--"Serenity Prayer", A Tale of Captain Ezri Dax
Yep--actually...it was that scene which helped provide inspiration for this. There was also the in-private scenes between McCoy and Kirk in the first two films.
Also...Simon's affectionate nickname for Ezri is something of a nod to the classic "Bones" and "Jim". (I had been briefly toying with the idea of Ezri calling Simon "Bones"...but I ultimately decided against it.)
"I have been wounded but not yet slain. I shall lie here and bleed awhile. Then I shall rise and fight again."
