Did you mean to write cubits? I thought the Federation currency unit was called a credit. A cubit is a measure of distance.
Kadis-kot! Someone remembered! (ie, someone suffered through the hell that was ST:Voyager. actually, that entire tortuous journey would have been worth it if the last season had been Voyager's return and Kate Mulgrew Captain Janeway's courtmartial for bad acting, but whatevs)
He felt like he was taking off a costume once he slipped his jacket off, which was sobering in the worst way.
Oh, wow. *is not worthy*
Oh, man, good call there on the cubits! Too much Battlestar Galactica has warped my brain. *goes back to edit*
And thank you for such awesome reviews, seriously. You pointed out things that I didn't even find remarkable -- it's like, YAY, NEW EYES FOR THIS STORY I'VE BEEN STARING AT FOR AGES. So, thanks again. And yes, KADIS-KOT. Voyager is the Trek everyone forgot; even me, willingly, because damn it was bad.

He said it was because Jim couldn't be trusted to check on saturated fat content, but Jim thought Bones really needed to get laid.
LMAO, Bones is like my aunt who's been stalking me on FB because there are no major political campaigns going on in Illinois right now (she's retired, donchaknow).
Bones normally can't be bothered with anyone's private life (PLEASE, people, for the love of God stop telling Bones about your private life, just because he's a doctor doesn't mean he cares) but once you put Jim into the equation, he is TOTALLY someone's aunt.

The chess had been a monumentally bad idea. Kirk was going to imply the other Spock take his advice and shove it somewhere painful when he got the chance. Maybe the next time Jim wanted to get to know his XO, he could try water boarding, or those Godawful camaraderie exercises from the Academy. Camping. Spock would absolutely love camping, if by love you meant abhor with a terrifying intensity.
I love this sarcasm so hard.

Had to quit reading just to praise all the awesome. The casual way you slip in a wonderful comparison between the two universes, the total logic of Kirk being good at chess... but not all that good because he was too busy being Miz Understood and getting his head bashed in, lines like this: The silence that echoed was another layer of awkward on top of a pile of uncomfortable. Omg, the word-slinging here. Komack. Gosh.
Eee, again, your reviews are awesome. <3
