Stories by Erin Moriarty
Summary: The Beauty of Gray Bajoran Lieutenant JG Kayden Rychel and Cardassian Lieutenant Helik Dakbar had not gotten off to a good start. On the one hand, it seemed perfectly obvious. Even in 2408, there were tensions between Cardassians and Bajorans, and there were some who believed that the Federation would be at war with the Empire before the decade was done. Still, they were both Starfleet officers, fighting the good fight, or so it appeared, until a “harmless” comment from Rychel provoked an unexpected reaction from Dakbar. What followed was a love story that spanned life, death, espionage, questionable loyalties, blood ties, and much, much more.

Still, if love was easy, everyone would do it.

This novel was edited together from postings at http://usstalon.proboards.com, and thus encompasses the viewpoints of several characters. The story has been edited slightly to improve flow of conversations, to remedy spelling and grammar errors, and to omit unnecessary or unrelated subplots.
