The conversation with Julian is perhaps the most telling, where Icheb is talking about what Dena might want in terms of which implants to remove, which ones to retain, etc. Julian wisely realizes that this is almost like Icheb is high on the technology.

I just wanted to say that I am loving this story line. The characters have a real depth and realism about them. You have thought long and hard about everyone of them. Well done. The plot is great. I just got to the last one of Part II and I'm wanting more!!!! Hope you continue with this. This would be a great published novel or tv series... Keep up the great work and looking forward to more!!!!
Your comment made my week. Thank you. I do plan to continue the story; however, it's on hiatus temporarily while I focus on another project. Thanks for reading and commenting; I hope you come back for the rest!

Worrying developments for Icheb. He seems to see the point and reason of what Bashir is trying to tell him. Icheb can understand the danger of the connection - Bashir presents it basically in black and white so he cannot refute it - however, if I go back to the drug addict analogy, I'm sure many an addict is sure that continuing the drugs is a bad idea initially, but the temptation to share such an experience again becomes such that reason does not hold any sway over their actions. One wonders and worries how Icheb will fare; and will power alone be enough for him to exercise caution and patience.
Meantime, Adele finds herself turning to Telek to run the ideas past him. In part, she cannot trust Icheb's eagerness and she doesn't have her chief engineer to hand [not to mention those senior officers missing aboard the Sol and Luna]. So she finds she is running the idea past Telek who makes his stance very clear. It seems she only needed a second opinion but it seems telling that she now has to ask someone else instead of trusting her instincts. very telling given her empathic, emotional guidance in different affairs yet now she is asking for corroboration for the path to take.

Julian and Icheb are developing a chemistry in their interactions. Meanwhile, Adele seemed to have caved awfully quickly. Unless she was just wanting to see how emphatic the acting chief engineer would be about not wanting to take such a big risk.
