^Thanks for the very thoughtful review... but please understand, you can't offer "free" story ideas to writers. It just doesn't work that way. Now that I've read that suggestion, I can't possibly ever use it, because if writers ever did that sort of thing, we'd all be exposed to unacceptable legal risk. And if, by coincidence, I had been planning anything of the sort -- even if I had already been writing such a story -- I would now be legally obligated to abandon it and start over from scratch. That's actually happened to some authors in the past, though not Trek authors as far as I know. That's why this forum has a rule against posting story ideas -- because the pro writers wouldn't be able to participate here otherwise. So I really appreciate your thoughts about the story you read, but please, in future, never, ever try to offer ideas for new stories to a professional writer.
