I loved it the perfect Trek format ships out exploring the unknown the author nailed all the characters.
A few thoughts.
1. I love the fact the Seven and Cambridge are starting a relationship I find this very funny and intriguing.
2. We finally got a description of one of the ships Achilles. I picture it as the saucer of Prometheus with basically a huge box as the massive cargo hold with two massive nacelles. I just wish we got a better description of the Merrian class.
3 I loved Captain Farkas and O'Donnel!
Only negative is I don't like Eden as still being a Captain IMO it's a little confusing. Star Fleet should have given her a field promotion to Admiral or since the is unique as in Star Fleet doesnt usually send out fleets, She should be a Commador.
