Forward from the author: Well, I've finally gotten around to running my Trek series here, as promised. If you'd like a quick snapshot of what this is about, you can read my Ad Astra update thread here: http://forums.adastrafanfic.com/index.php?topic=445.0 The bottom line is that I'm now migrating my Trek series to both Trek BBS and Ad Astra. The Ad Astra format is here, if you prefer: http://www.adastrafanfic.com/viewstory.php?sid=754 This will be the first appearance of my series at either site outside of my cross over with Gibraltar ("Treacherous Waters") We begin with "The Double Edge". DE is one my oldest stories, so I've given it a make over. Much of the dialogue and details have been rewritten. It now sports a prologue as well. If you've read this story before, be aware that I've made no major changes to the plot or characterizations. What I've changed is solely to facilitate a smoother flow. Chapter 1 will follow in a few days. Excluding the prologue, this adventure takes place in 2374, a little over two years before "Treacherous Waters."
