Re: Saavik's Origin
If I understand correctly, TOS 49 - The Pandora Principle by Carolyn Clowes & Unspoken Truth by Margaret Wander Bonanno pretty much explain most of that and both are thought quite highly of. I have them both on my to read shelf but haven't gotten to them yet so I can't elaborate but those two should clear up a lot of her backstory.

I swear I remember the majority of the reactions to Unspoken Truth being negative. I was really looking forward to reading it, but when I saw how negative the reactions on here were I ended up pushing it back in my wishlist.
Over the course of many encounters and many years, I have successfully developed a standard operating procedure for dealing with big, nasty monsters. Run away. Me and Monty Python.
