I was never a big fan on non-canon MU tales, but that was before the first Abrams-verse Star Trek movie. This was a well-thought out story told from the point-of-view of one of Empress Sato's consorts. In a universe where everyone is motivated by one's personal ambitions, at least this Travis has some shred of humanity in him.
