So there's a little Janus in Juneau... It will be interesting to see whether this alter-ego comes from within or is an intruder.
Mucking about with the fabric of time so soon in the story? Nice that DTI is a civilian agency - many ST stories remain strictly with military organizations and rarely involve civilian authority.
A nice dynamic emerging between Sandhurst and Ramirez - back and forth on both Lar'ragos and Ashok.
Glad you liked my vision of the DTI. Sandhurst and Ramirez are beginning to gel as a command team, slowly but surely.

I would really hate to be Ashok... It's hard to be second smartest engineer on the ship when you're the Chief. Some really interesting things from Juneau... It definitely hints at there being more than meets the eye to the "mousy" officer.
I love the look in at DTI as well. They're certainly not the sort of people you would want showing up at your doorstep, and it makes a lot of sense that they would wield more power than is wise because of "recent" events.

Sandhurst man, I still feeling he is tentatively learning how to be a captain. But a least he did the right thing letting Ramirez sort out Lar'ragos. Though I doubt she will get through to that grizzled, paranoid old wreck...
The parts involving the Temporal Investigations Agency were fun to read, somehow whether in film or book, temporal stuff (related or otherwise) always comes off as interesting to me. Nice little irony with that Past Prologue book; a book of the future about the past...
Lar'ragos has lots of layers, as you'll soon discover... but grizzled, paranoid old wreck is not too far off the mark. ;)

I really liked the idea of 'The Vault.' If time travel were actually possible the way Star Trek does it, then something like the Vault would be an absolute necessity. I mean, really, considering that the Borg were so close in wiping out the Federation the one time, what would actually stop them from trying again? (and leaping back in time from the Delta Quadrant first, THEN going to Earth)
Can't wait to see how this all develops!
The Vault is definitely one of those build-it-and-hope-we-don't-need-it projects for the Federation. Thanks for the commentary!

I'm really enjoying this, the steady ratcheting up of tension and the overall mystery of just what might have happened. The chain of command is well portrayed. I'll be returning to this to read more chapters. I'm eager to see how you handle possible time travel issues.
Thank you very much! GoC was one of my favorite stories to write, as it was a scenario I'd wanted to pen for a number of years. It's very much a mission that should have been tasked to a bigger ship with far better resources... but Gibraltar happened to be the only game in town that day.

Oooh, talk about a boiling mystery on several fronts. I love how you've weaved them into these chapters, making reading more and more of something that's a requirement (and guilty pleasure when I have so much other stuff to do!!) right NOW. Juneau's 'possession' of sorts there was a fascinating moment, especially since she still seemed to be herself, but not, if that makes sense.
Then, the TIA? There's another really wide-eyed interesting addition to the story. I can't fathom how these will go together, but I have a feeling it's gonna be awesome.
And yet more on Pava's reign of terror over his own group. Yes, I can see why this won a front-page recommendation.
