Man oh.  Sounds like a mix of stuff from ENT (the Denobulan) with stuff from the original TOS (Nomad screeching "error," the destruct code sequence from 'Let That Be Your Last Battlefield,' "remember," from TWOK - what is going on here?  Echoes from the original timeline?  No wonder none of them register with Spock or Uhura, and yet they are both unnerved by them all the same.

Author's Response: These guesses are delish. I love the connections you've picked out. Thank you for them.

That picture is so cool.  I'm totally trying to figure this out.

Author's Response: ::grins!:: I am deeply pleased that you're trying. Thank you <3

what in the world is going on here...

Love the graphic to go along with this piece. And how very mysterious, combined with the other ones. Interested to see the rest of this

Author's Response: I owe a lot to Steff for brainstorming the concept of that graphic! Thank you <3

Lifts the lid more on Uhura than the show was often able to do. More than just someone who always seemed to be cupping her ear or saying "hailing frequencies open". Fascinating to read.

Author's Response: I love the original Uhura, and I've always chafed a little against her being stuck, in reboot, in a just-a-girlfriend role. I wanted to see into her some more. Thank you so much <3

EEE. You have me holding the laptop screen up to my face so I can try to dsicern any clues in the garbled message! This is how insanely curious you have me. Denobulon and old equipment suggests a possible ENT throwback thing. She's also hunting for Denobulan communications so that's intriguing too. And then there's the REMEMBER thing. Damn! You know how to hook us in ErinJean. Excellent job.

Also, love, love the Uhura thought process on communication and languages. Firstly, cos any language person does have a real romantic love of the languages and so rings true to the character(s) (TOS Uhura and NuUhura.). Secondly, cos it is such a great way of explaining it. Thirdly, cos it shows how much more there is to her job and how smart and important her role was - not some mere secretary on the bridge as some have tried to label it. This was a smart woman with a keen intellect.

The thought processes on Spock are also really fascinating cos in NuTrek it works to show the pairing and why it works, why they could be a pairing. For TOS trek it also works cos you can imagine Uhura stealing such thoughts about Spock especially when wrapped up in admiration and respect and shared interests. Makes me wonder jsut what universe this particular ficlet is set in.

P.S. Love the graphic addition to the piece. Noice!

Author's Response: Oh, what a wonderful long delightful review. Making it a graphic was Steff's idea; the font wouldn't work on the site! Which actually just made it more... heeee. I'm so glad you're hooked. I'm delighted with the guessing going on. Uhura was something I wanted to get exactly right, and was marginally sure I'd fail. Thank you for this portion of your review; I feel much better about writing her now. I do love her; I do feel she's been failed by scriptwriters and I wanted not to do the same. It's reboot, but the consistent feelings toward being able to read TOS era characters in it makes me very, very happy. Thank you so much, overall, for this review.

Ooh - perhaps we're hearing the MU ENT crew? Curiouser and curiouser!

Author's Response: ::giggles!:: I'm prizing the guesses. Thank you.

Uhura and she catches win of this mysterious thing as well ... in Denobulan of all things. Could we be looking at some sort of ENT reference? There's something strange going on here, obviously, but what exactly is it? I'm boggled and dying to see what it is. Uhura was written well, quite enjoyed her love of the symphony of signals.

Author's Response: Thank you. Emphatically, thank you, because I desperately wanted to write her well, and was scared I'd fallen quite short. At the very least, Denobulans exist in this universe ;)
