As I stated in the other episode posts, A.J. and I have taken the story arcs in a new direction. "The Unreturned Prodigal" is the first part of new arc that replaces the old "Eight the Hard Way" arc I'd originally written back in 2009. This episode will use some heavily-revised scenes originally written for "Eight the Hard Way" but we believe you will enjoy them in their new context.
We're very pleased to present to TrekBBS with the world premiere of this episode (not posted anywhere else), signalling our new direction. We thank you for your continued support of our efforts!
