Tark's a sharp cookie to notice the new Juneau while in a pinch. No one said tellerites were dummies..
Well - the scientist turned out to be a badass... I wonder if Ramirez is now a candidate for a prosthetic.
So why did the Baron take on the form of Benghazi?
Really nice action and an unexpected win for Gibralter's crew. I always appreciate it when the writer keeps me guessing instead of following too worn tropes.
Also - interesting (and no doubt inevitable) character development between Ashook and Sandhurst.
Fortunately, the Baron's beam didn't sever Ramirez's arm, just punched a hole cleanly through it.
The Baron's relationship to Dr. Benghazi is a complicated one...
Thanks for your continuing reviews, they're much appreciated!

Wow, I think my view of the Orions have been permanently changed! A exciting and vivid chapter. An extraordinarily difficult choice that Captain Sandhurst had to make...I'm not sure what I would have done in his place. But that's what makes him a good captain.
It was a gut-wrenching decision, to be sure, and one he's certain to replay in his mind again and again.

Oh woah... What a decision Sandhurst just had to make. I can understand the logic behind it, but that must have killed him.
A great couple of scenes here, both the taking of the bridge (when you said the crystal laser beam sliced through Ramirez' arm I thought it had actually cut it off! Phew!) and the battle in engineering. Intense.
And the situation with the Baron gets more and more intriguing. Is he the One spoken of by the creature trapped on the planet?
Fortunately, Ramirez and the others (notably young Lightner) met violence with violence and overcame the ship's attackers. But this is far from over...
Thanks again for the reviews!

Geez. I feel terrible for your crew here. Sandhurst having to order the lack of treatment for one person, to save a prisoner, and just the complete wrong of the situation. War's not pretty, but daaaaamn.
It's a great story and agonizingly realistic, but it also totally makes me happy I write in a much nicer (even when things get bad sometimes) period in Starfleet history.
The post-war period is definitely a rough one for the Federation as a whole and Starfleet in particular. Fortunately, the horrors of war have helped prepare them for the uncertainties and moral ambiguity that pervades this dark era.
