Wow. That's a powerful and very exciting hook of an introduction. I loved it. I loved the perspective of the Klingon Doctor throughout it. He's an intriguing character and I love the fact we are getting to see a Klingon in a different light. Yet despite the different light, Logruk still views himself very much as a warrior - in traditional terms and in terms of warring against disease. Very fascianting and an intriguing character with lots of promise, lots of fight, lots of on the foot thinking and very wily. Hoping to see more of him and to see how he interacts with the Federation.
Then we come to the conumdrum of the myth made flesh from Klingon nightmares. Very intriguing. It's a great spin on zombies or mutants and regardless means trouble for all ahead. I'm most curious about the nature of the mutation, its origin and the sentinence of these transformed Klingons. Why are they charting a path to Federation territory? Or did they? Maybe someone else did as a biological attack of some kind on Starfleet? And why did the mutated creature halt at the sight of itself? Does that mean there is still some sort of personality remnant left behind? Many, many questions. And the beginnings of what I am sure is going to be a terrific story. Additionally, I live the tone, style and phrasing of so much of this piece.
Author's Response: I hope, very much, that the revelations coming in later chapters live up to this praise. I'm glad you're enjoying it. Logruk originally started out as a very minor character, but writing for him thus far was so enjoyable that I'm hoping to expand his role.

I have a soft spot for Zombified Klingons as one of my previous stories can attest. This felt a little bit like a Trek version of that recent SyFy show Helix. And just like in that show, there are a lot of questions, chief among them, why is the doctor immune to these creatures? And what do they want in Fed space? I'm sure those and others will be answered in time. In the meanwhile we've got the beginning to what seems like a rollicking tale.
Author's Response: Thank you very much for the feedback. I'm glad you're enjoying my take on the zombie theme.
