Thanks for that Maurice. I admit I am on my third novel (non-Trek although there are Trekkies in it and one of them creates an artificial life form he names after a Trek character)... and I threw a play in there to try to get the 'keep it short' down. This is going to be the first one I try to sell... the others just weren't good enough. I have done about 30 or 35 rewrites, and I'll probably do 10 more. I've gotten comments from more than 25 people, and every one of them was useful. They helped me get out of my own head.
