Well, this answered a few questions I'd had, like what happened with Donald and Ojana after Treacherous Waters, and what happened with the Bajora-Tava. I think you did a masterful job with the political aspects of this. It really felt down-to-Earth (down-to-Bajor?) and realistic, from the hitman-turned-inspector, to the news reporting, to the feel of the city and the nice hotel and the smoke rising in the air from the unrest, the misnamed "Picard's War", the concern over whether a civil/religious war will prevent Bajor's entrance to the Federation ... very evocative, detailed imagery all the way around. Thanks for pointing this one out to me, I very much enjoyed it.
I'm glad you liked the story. I was a quick write for me, but it helped to tie up some loose ends as well as shed some light on the toll the Bajora-Tava were taking on Bajor.

Very intriguing. I know little of the overall background of this, and yet I was immediately drawn into the action. Your portrayal of Sandhurst as a pragmatist strikes a very real chord for a man in his position. I'm looking forward to making my way through more of the Gibraltar stories.
Thank you very much. :) This is one of those stories that doesn't make a whole lot of sense without the backstories involved, so I'm pleased you enjoyed it regardless. I appreciate your comments.
