I enjoyed this scene filler. It always amazes me when authors such as yourself find a way to fill in a what we did not see on the screen. I think this captures wonderfully what Jim must have felt when he was left with the task of trying to summarize the unexplainable to a room full of people (that he needs to lead).
Author's Response: Thank you. Glad you enjoyed it. That scene just cried out to be written, at least to me!

Wow! What other word is there to respond to such a gut-wrenching, heart-squeezing cameo?
Author's Response: Many thanks. Kirk was so obviously distressed at the funeral, but his eulogy was so plain, I felt the need to explain the mismatch!

Welcome to the Archive, Anne Elliot! Your story is beautifully written, and heart-wrenching.
My husband wanted to watch TWOK last night, and I said no, it was still too soon. Dear God, it's three years this month since Leonard Nimoy died, and I still grieve him.
Author's Response: Thankyou for this. It wasn’t an easy story to write - nor to read, it seems. Thank goodness they got back together again later!

This is a very lovely piece of work - realistic and raw by turns. It reminded me of my state when I lost that dear one who made me believe that T'hy'la could be possible, when I told the doctors doing CPR to stop breathing for my dad and allow him to die, when I held my dying mother's hand and released my childhood memories and connections when I turned it loose. There can be a tremendous clarity of mind at a time like that, and yet there is such a tremendous, unsettling emotionality at the same time. You captured it perfectly.
Author's Response: Thankyou. I was sorry the story triggered sad memories, but glad I got the emotional feel of the story right.
