I have downloaded the file and I will study it asap. What I want to do *now* is to thank you for your generous effort, at this terrible moment in your life. I make wishes for this labor of love to bring you a measure of satisfaction, and the inner peace which allows for meditation and elaboration of grief. It was so for me while writing TOS fiction three years ago. Love, even just imagined love, is always a blessing and a consolation. Live long and prosper

I am really sorry about your crappy year as you so phrase it. Let us hope 2012 is a better one.
Now, I just loved your analysis about The Cage. About the women you mentioned, being tough, they are more holding their own. It is too bad that Number One's character didn't continue, or at least have someone similar in the series after the pilot. One person comes to mind is Elizabeth Dehner. She looks like one touch cookie. Remember how she gives the best lines to Gary Mitchell..
Improving the breed, Doctor?
Is that your line?
I heard that's more your specialty, Commander,
Would have loved it if she had remained. I really liked her. Also the uniforms, this is supposed to be the future. The Cage and pilot the girls were wearing pants...and then they weren't...Even the Abrams Universe..little skirts. But if we watch The Next Generation...I do remember a guy wearing a skirted outfit. I think it was the pilot. Do you actually see security wearing a mini..it makes no sense.
Getting back to The Cage, the talosians were played by older woman. Not everyone knows that. I find that pure genius on Roddenberry's part. How very sneaky. Okay, Spock he is a little strange looking with the brows and hair. Plus he likes to speak loud to be heard. He is trying to find his character, and even the early season of star trek he still was.
So, he is forgiven for smiling openly in the two pilots. So, I suppose I am not surprised by Quinto's Spock either. He is very young.
Great job my friend...happy that you are back...
