I have never posted a fanfic on this BBS before. Didn't think I ever would. But I started writing this story for fun in my free time and it's grown to the point that I'm afraid I might stop working on it unless I get some feedback on it. So a preface, and a warning: this is a NuTrek story set several months after the events depicted in STXI. If you have personal issues with the recent film, or if you are one of those people who strongly believe in the sanctity of "teh canon," you should save yourself the headache and not read this story. I have not decided, yet, whether or not this story will lead to future events that will in any way resemble anything we have seen in TOS or the previous feature films. As I said, it's a story based on a reboot, so all options are on the table. I plan to post new chapters every week or two; questions/comments are welcome.
