^ It does have its share of light-hearted stories, but then the tempo is really ratcheted up with the Ascendants and dealings with Section 31 (hope that wasn't too much of a spoiler for you, Ln X).

I've began reading your first story Emancipation, and here are a few thoughts:
Thanks for giving it a shot. I hope you'll stick with it.

I liked the script format, as it conveys scenes, rooms and events quickly, precisely and smoothly. It also appears that your chapters (or episode length) is about the same size of an actual Star Trek script, so it's a quick read which I also like.
That's the aim, to be episode-length. They're all around 60 pages ish, which is probably a touch long, as I understand it a typical hour-long episode is about 50 pages on the theory that one page of script equals one minute of screen time, with room for it to tighten up in editing. But thereabouts.

Despite being completely unfamiliar with the characters (I have never read the DS9R books!) I am hopeful your story will help me become familiar with these characters without feeling I'm missing out on too much previous information/stories.
Ep 1 is specifically designed as like a recap here-is-where-we-are kind of thing, hence all the admirals coming to rehash everything. Any questions, feel free to ask. If it helps, the Even Odds is the same ship Jake encounters in "Rising Son."

I actually have barely created any new characters at all in the whole season. In almost every case I prefer to see what happens next with the characters we already know.

I don't mind spoilers; it gives me something to look forward to when reading.

I definitely want to check this out, but the "Emancipation" file has been removed from MediaFire! Anywhere else I can get it?

Sorry, yes - the Mediafire account got killed becuase the site freaked out and cancelled lots of people's accounts.

The on-screen text and new PDF link can be found at Ad Astra as Gul Re'jal posted (thanks GR!) or there's a set of new links to all the PDFs at the top of the most recent episode thread here. But obviously you might want to beware spoilers if you go into that thread.

Thanks for giving it a shot, mug, and I hope you enjoy it!

EDIT: Also, please feel free to comment and review. I always welcome other people's thoughts.

</end desperate plea for validation>
