Okay, I hadn't realized that this had been planned as just a short story. I had mistakenly assumed this was the beginning of a new series.
I'm glad you decided to add to it and it would certainly be great to read more about this crew and, especially, this captain.
Too often we tend to see humans as the protagonists so it's refreshing to see the world from an outsider's perspective. And you can't be much more of an outsider than a Romulan Starfleet captain. We already see that this guy has no patience for Quark and able to engage people in the most unlikely places.
And how exactly did the Dew manage to survive into the 24th century? No doubt at a cost of countless rotten teeth ...
