I absolutely adored this. I've been on the hunt for stories about Pike and Number One, in the vein of my fave TOS novel _Vulcan's Glory_ and this is far and away my favourite Pike story I've foudn thus far. Not only do I recognise these people from "The Cage", but everything feels completely in character as you gave me an all new adventure. And I loved your cast of OCs, particularly Tora.

Author's Response: Thank you very much! I'm very happy you liked the story.:) And special thanks for your words about OCs, they have a hard time competing with canon ones for the readers' attention. :)

Cardassian Sunrise by Nerys Ghemor    Rated: K    Liked  Reviews (8
Summary: Past Featured Story

Like ripples in a pond, even a year after the attack on the Kelvin, the changes to this wounded timeline have already begun to spread beyond the Federation's borders.

See through the eyes of a Vulcan, a human, and a Cardassian as dreadful circumstances force two powers into much closer contact much sooner than they ever would have had otherwise...

This is lovely! I hadn't realised we had a canonical First Contact date for the Cardassians, which is why the name of the drink just blipped by me (I think I misremembered the Organians mentioning them on ENT and assumed it wasn't a continuity error), but I really love the level of detail in this piece. I could picturing it very clearly, and I especially love the last line.

Author's Response:

Thanks! :-)

We don't really have a canonical first-contact date...just brief mentions in ENT--then nothing in TOS--and then suddenly there they are in TNG.  This was just my way of explaining why they're not heard from in TOS (the embargo that would've gone into place had the attack on Vulcan not occurred).  But I'm really glad you like the story!  Do tell me, if you have the chance to drop a PM, if you think this is a plausible direction for the timeline to take following the attack! :-)

This was lovely! Poor Scott. And tea is in fact the cure for all ills. Even potential table linen disasters, and Klingon warbirds destroying the ship. I particularly love the yeoman.

Author's Response: Thank you! It's an earlier piece of mine, but I had fun with it.

This is just lovely. one of the things I love most about Pike is how he faced his death head-on when he went over to the Narada. This is a lovely peek inside his head, at what sort of man he is.

Author's Response: Thanks! This pretty much exemplifies why I like Pike so much as a character (looks over AOS stories written to date and those in the planning stages, sees most of them are starring Pike). His strength, his command of a situation, his willingness to face down odds which aren't in his favor...and a sense of humor to boot (I love the line about the "parking brake").

I finally dloaded this for my kindle and read thefirst half last night and I am UTTERLY ADORING IT. I am so so sorry I haven't read it before now. But I am so glad you keep writing! I am loving your Lt Scott, and his entire backstory, and OMG PIKE. He and Number One make me SO HAPPY.

Author's Response: Thank you! It was off your prompt, even if it took me three or four years to finish it. ;)
