Hm. Was that Khan? What the hell is he doing in that cave?? I like the way you arranged the story and the monologue. Well written, but still I don't understand Khan's connection to this strange cave...if in fact that is Khan, as I suspect. Most mysterious...

Ha! Jeannie-Luc Picard, thanks to the ever annoying Q. I must say that Q is my least favorite Trek character, and this story of yours clearly illustrates why. He is such a pompous, power-crazy entity, with absolutely no sense of propriety. To think of feminizing our beloved captain. May I ask if "she" was bald? Oh, the shame...
Too bad that the counselor had to witness this embarrassing episode. Can she hold herself back from sharing it...perhaps with Riker...over a second glass of wine?

Seven is wise to reconsider what sort of food she consumes before her regeneration cycle, but something tells me that this dream might visit her again, perhaps with different symbolism, but always telling the same tale. I wonder if she realizes that it is the story of her life?
Well written, with a nicely amusing twist at the end. Seven is always an interesting character.

Wow. This is a hard one to swallow. But I find the ending good. You wove good narratives into each of your seven ficlets for the different eras.
I can't wait for your Independence series comes out. I look forward to reading it. :)

Wow! Love the nod to Vulcan integrity here - that she wouldn't do anything to compromise it, and loyalty - that she wouldn't believe any attempts to besmirch the name of her captain, to the point of defending his honor with physical violence. She's only half Vulcan, though. Curious as to the rest of her hybrid makeup, and how it plays into her decision - both the refusal and the physical pummeling of the recruiter.
Author's Response: T'Randa was introduced in TemplarSora's "Infiltraitor", and she's the main character in the upcoming "Star Trek: Independence" series. She's half human, but she was raised on Earth (with much more human in her genetic makeup, thus her red hair). Thanks for the review!

Ooooh. I like this. There's a lot going on. And no doubt this scene has played itself out a number of times in the S31 meet and greets. It's scary that they exist. Perhaps more horrifying to learn from them themselves that they exist and that they want you to be a part of their ranks! Not a good sign. Not good at all. From the scene it seems T'Randa will resist being a part of S31 but they do have a habit of beating people down and dragging them into their schemes. I'm now very curious as to how T'Randa continues and if the halfing sticks to their word that they'll never be a part of it. Super job on this. Super job on all the ficlets.

Wow...creepy. And very fitting. And a very good explanation for how Spock could "see" Vulcan dying from Delta Vega. Really well done, bud!
Author's Response: Thanks, that was my concept for this story, to explain that scene.
