Oh. my. GOSH! You wrote this while you were DEPLOYED?! This is GREAT! It left me sitting back BREATHLESS. You have a real talent. It was cool how you crafted the story so that those who know TOS would get it, but those who don't would as well. I'm considering asking you for help on MY fanfic. Wow. Good story arc, great theme, AND you stayed true to the characters. Well done!
