Okay, you are seriously making my brain hurt trying to figure out these references. I'm in hook, line and sinker. :D This can refer to anything from Chekov remembering his own screams in the agony booth of the Mirror Universe, to tribbles freaking out when beamed aboard a Klingon ship, to the crews of the Constellation or the Intrepid dying horrible deaths in space.
I'm sure none of these are right, so I'll just have to keep reading and looking for the Easter eggs. ;-)
Author's Response: ::rubs hands together!:: Oooh, these guesses. I love it. Thank you so much.

Found something haunting or chilling about Chekov's actions. Not often I get that from writing.
Author's Response: So very honored by this comment. It's definitely what I was hoping to descend into from the humor. Thank you <3

Uh oh. Whatever overlap is happening is affecting others besides Scotty. Loving the humoour lacing this especially the beginning with the food cubes. That's one way to be inspired to throw yourself out an airlock.
But trippy went dark and foreboding with Chekov's ... whatever. Almost as though we're dealing with 'Yeserday's Enterprise' type deal with the crew being like Guinan and becoming aware of what is/has happened in NuVerse. [???]
Dunno but damned enjoying and intrigued by the ride.
Author's Response: My favorite part is your intrigue. Thank you, thank you thank you. (Somehow I've always read that Sulu, nuSulu, as a badass with a goofy twist. Might be the influence of his actor. Or maybe just the "...fencing." line in the first film.)

Sulu and Chekov, a classic pairing. I love how Sulu's just lighthearted here and doesn't take things all that seriously till Pavel pops out of his chair and runs down the hall. I'm at a complete loss as to what he's seeing though ... visions of the future? A TOS reference I'm not quite getting? I don't know. But I'm damned curious about it and more than willing to read more. Great interplay between the two and yes, the Russian came out very Pavel in this piece, heard him all the way.
Author's Response: I shall give you only a wink in answer ;) THANK you, so much, a thousand times. I'm honored by this comment (and relieved it sounded like Chekov!). Your curiosity probably means the most of all.

And another intriguing ficlet. I especially enjoyed the MASH reference, good to see that some pre-WW3 culture survived! :) As to the screaming Chekov hears... Hmmmm. I look forward to reading more.
Author's Response: ::grins!:: The world needs M*A*S*H, even after WW3 XD Thank you so much for commenting.
