Summary: Past Featured Story

2384: As the Alpha and Beta Quadrants continue to recover from the Dominon War, Starfleet moves ahead with the launch of a very special ship, the USS Pearl. Based on the unique design of the Enterprise-C, the Pearl is assigned to Captain Henry "Hank" Harrison and dispatched to a colony on the outskirts of the Federation, New Haven, to investigate a suspected Maquis plot.

What Hank and his crew discover is something far more dangerous ... and destructive.

I will post a short review only to say, as you know I read this at the OS. It's an exquisite piece brought to a haunting and melancholy end - just as it should have been. Extraordinary.

Author's Response: Thank you, Terry. It's a strange feeling knowing its all over. Can't wait to see what you think of the side arc, whenever you get around to it.

I've decided to go back over and read this here and that way I'll be able to provide my reviews on a chapter by chapter basis! As you already know Sam - Ramirez is going to be one of my faves I think. I love that this is not your "typical" Starfleet crew - in that there are already pre-existing anger and confidence issues...

Nothing wrong with a little fire right off the bat! I found myself hoping that Sandhurst would call her on the carpet and the "discussion" in the ready room did not disappoint!

Author's Response:

Yep, Ramirez has an axe to grind, and deservedly so.  However, Sandhurst can't let her attitude interfere with the mission.

It's always fun to read others' takes on what would have happened after the end of the Dominion War - this is certainly plausible and entirely frightening. But most of all I appreciate how brilliantly planned Urlak's manipulation of the Ferengi's position was made. It was surgical and precise - very, very Cardassian!

Author's Response:

As an ex-spymaster, Urlak is a bit more patient and cunning than your 'typical' Cardassian military officer.  Though his methods of manipulation are perhaps a bit more subtle, they are nonetheless very effective.

And that strange yet wonderful tick that Sandhurst has for command comes into play. Great way of introducing us to some new characters and they're incredibly real foundations Sam!

Author's Response:

I'm glad you enjoy the players in my story.  I hope you like where the tale heads.

This will always be one of my favorite non-Scott-centric pieces of yours Steff. Its mood is spot-on perfect and its easy to slip into the emotional perspective of McCoy's character. You always know how to direct your readers to find the complexities in the simplest of tales and point directly at the heart of humanity when you do.

Author's Response: Thank you much, Terilynn. I do love writing McCoy, just never quite as much as I do Scotty. I'm glad I could handle him well.

First off *headdesk* This was so...so good. But for some really incredible reason, this line:

"Guess it must not take much for the Empire to decide something's too broken to fix."

..is just scathingly perfect.

Author's Response: Heya Terilynn! I really loved working on some of these early pieces, even knowing that things go wrong. And that line can really only be foreshadowing. Thanks so much for the feedback!

Beautifully crafted and, not unlike your other work, surgically adept at striking at the very heart of things. An insight I wasn't sure existed before now...and even more tragic. damn, I love this character.

Author's Response: He is definitely a tragedy. He may be a villain or a hero; a monster or a martyr. No one knows. But he is a tragedy regardless. Thank you, thank you for the comment!

A rather domestic look at how he thinks, and feels... a normal life on part, and then life in the shadows, with a shadow, on the other.

I am continually bowled over by the intricacies in your work. Not of words mind you but of emotion and your ability to see into the layers of the psyche and how one layer may not necessarily hold what the one underneath it does.

Author's Response: I got to dive into some pretty fascinating psychology when it came to Andy, and by association, Scott. One Minute was going to be all there was of them, but I got addicted to diving through the layers (and some of those really damn dark, and some very warm and kind), so wrote a bunch more. Thank you for the comment! I'm honored that you've read it.
