I like very much the idea here that the Chilo would go back in time and try to kill a younger, more vulnerable version of Douglas in hopes of extinguishing the threat before it ever had the chance to become one.
Interesting that that event was what cemented Douglas's desire to join Starfleet. Ah, the best-laid plans of mice and men...or Chilo...;-)
Author's Response: Yes a lot of people think that did seem in character for the Chilo. Yes that plan did back-fire a bit on the Chilo.

I just got done watching a Doctor Who episode that did this very thing, altering the past experiences of a character and having that person suddenly remember everything as it was happening. A lot of wibbly wobbly timey wimey stuff here...Pretty cool idea to roll with. And not a bad job on the execution, either.
Author's Response: Thanks for reviewing.

Ah, and Daniels appears - and yes, it makes sense, sort of like the Terminator films (and Star Trek: First Contact), that the Chilo would go for a weaker and smaller version, in the past, and try to defeat that instead. But of course that can create a temporal paradox.
Author's Response: Well they do want to destroy the universe so creating a temporal paradox might reduce their work load for them. Well I couldn't have Douglas wandering around the T.I.C. and not have Daniels appear, now could I?
