The landing zone definitely has a feeling of those classic desolate, sound-stage+painted-backdrop settings for the original series and early STNG away missions.
The creepy, partially dissolved bodies seem very familiar from either STOS or STNG, but I'm not placing them. It's been nearly a decade since I watched that stuff.
Nice horror aura - I'm definitely a fan of good horror writing (my orignal genre as a writer.)

Another great Ramirez chapter. It's satisfying to walk with her as she goes through new experiences and learns her lessons in leadership. I also like your chapter cliffhanger...reminds me of the Silent Hill horror game series where they always seem to innocently ask you: "Would you like to jump down this dark hole?"
I wonder what a Tellarite female even looks like. I'm guessing just like the male but with longer hair and not such a heavy beard. Have we ever seen one?
Thanks for the review, vincenhugo!
Yes, this is a learning experience for Liana, who spent most of her XO time during the war on the bridge, and not getting to be very involved in away teams. I think we might have seen a female Tellarite in perhaps Enterprise, but I'm not sure, actually.

Well done on creating another tense situation, as well as an interesting dynamic in this away team. The macabre feel of the investigation was well rendered, sending little shivers down my spine at some points (people fused to chairs and tables? Ew!!! :) )
The away team scenes were a great deal of fun to write, and replete with little character moments that help to reveal the nature of the characters.

It's definitely looking as though the culmination of the research mentioned earlier didn't quite go as planned. Very creepy aftermath for the crew to have to explore. I like how the barren desolation of the planet underscores this.
Thanks! That's certainly the ambience I was shooting for. :-)

Eee! More mystery! I echo Ramirez's longing for the days of exploration, too. But the real interesting bit is, of course, the end with the mysterious staircase. I forsee the TIA being there... let's go see if I was right!
Only 'time' will tell. ;-)
