Thank you, CeJay. I should have the next section up later tonight; life has gotten in the way so it has slowed down. Frankly, I am surprised by how fast this has written itself: forty days since I wrote the first word. It should be wrapping up fairly soon, though.
I am glad that you are enjoying my humble attempt to write something for Trek; this is my first story set in the Star Trek universe and it is only with the advice and comments of some local experts on spacebattles that I got some of this technical things correct.
I do hope that you continue reading to the end (which is coming, I promise)!
