Re: Star Trek: Republic

I'm up through chapter 11. There's a lot to like here - great character work, engaging imagery and the Captain's hard-nosed but pragmatic approach to the Lorsham situation. Ordan reminds me of Landrieu and the Ultimate Computer from TOS but you added some unique and imaginative twists - particularly its ability to manipulate worship from other beings. I almost felt sorry for the Klingons (nice battle sequence, by the way) and hope that the Vulcan diplomat pulls through.
The arrival of Phoenix saved the day but now Captain Dahlgren must face the music for his actions. Personally, I think he made the right call. I'll read further to see if the board of inquiry agrees with me.
