The present-tense style is a bit jarring at first (it's been a while since I've last read this after all), but as you are keeping it consistent, you get used to it quickly.
The story is still compelling. It invoked TNG's Genesis which is similarly dark and ominous. Now Im thinking this might instead turn out more like the Walking Dead in Space.
Author's Response: Argh. I'm sorry. I default to that from years and years of forum roleplay where everyone does everything in present tense. I really need to learn to write in a different style for fanfiction. I try to use Free Writes to experiment with new ways. I'm not sure if I should start applying a new style to this or finish it as is and then start using a new style on future projects.
