    I'm not worried about being spoiled, especially since I'm seeing the episodes so out of order. Heck, I've already seen "These Are The Voyages" so I know what happens there. :rolleyes:

    I am just very aware that I don't know many details about Trip and T'Pol's relationship...but if anyone would like to fill me in, I'm quite ready to listen. It's driving me nuts that I have to rely on SyFy to get my fix. I'm hoping my husband is picking up the hints I keep dropping about how the DVDs would make a nice birthday gift. :lol:

    JiNX-01, I found your fic and am looking forward to reading it. :)

    Cool. Hope you like it.

    I didn't like the way the TnT relationship was written. Apparently nobody on the writing staff had any kind of handle on how to bring a Vulcan and a human together in an adult relationship. So what did we get? Adolescent angst. Trip loves her but never tells her so. T'Pol clearly wants to be emotionally close to Trip, but never takes the step. (it's pretty clear based on episodes like Fusion, Damage and Home that she knows she doesn't have the same level of emotional control as other Vulcans. So why doesn't she just go ahead and take ownership of her own feelings and let the rest of Vulcan social norms be damned?

    I do have another TnT fan fic in mind. Just haven't figured out how to do it so it works.

    That's why I wrote fanfic. :p To fix what didn't go right on the show (particularly in the MU :devil: -- even though I love those episodes too. :lol:)

    :techman:Jinx I'm glad you're writing another Trip&T'Pol story.One thing that's great about fanfiction if you fix a story plot you don't care for.;) Is there something wrong with twitter page? I keep trying get Connor's twitter page to load and all I get is the fail whale or a blank page.

    THUGs, this is the cover of the German language version of The Good That Men Do. Reanok was nice enough to send it to me so it could be shared here.

    I'm currently lmao at Trip declaring himself King of the Swamp in the episode Precious Cargo. Love me some Florida boys!

    This episode also gets bonus points for allowing Trip to shed his pesky shirt. :techman:

    Anyway, that promo pic is nice. Thanks for finding and sharing! :)

    There's a thread in the TrekLit forum called Why does Germany get the cool novel covers? I always thought TGTMD cover was excellent, but THIS is mindblowing! :wtf:
