When I was in my early teens and used to watch the Original Series in TV I sometimes had to leave the room for a while because the tension of the action plot was just too much . This story brought me back to that feeling, when we know that they are threatened but they are not aware of it yet, when they escape in the subway... I resisted somehow (because there is no leaving the room when you are reading, obviously) and made it to the end, crying so much about the scene when Jim has to destroy the machinery. This is great action writing, with just the right amount of heart in it.

Wow, some powerful scenes in that one - in the ending especially... *wipes a tear*
Also finishing where you did, not on the ship with everything neatly resolved, is a refreshing, slightly disquieting move (in a good way!!!) that will make this story remain for a long time in my mind...
Thanks so much. I appreciate you taking the time to give me feedback on my various stories. It means a great deal.

I could kick myself for missing this story before. To me, this is what it's all about. This is the essence of Star Trek. Wonderful.
Thanks so much. That's nice to hear. It's always a challenge to keep them true to themselves and in character. I've tossed many a scene that, although written well enough, had them say or do things that simply didn't feel right. This is especially true with Spock as he has such subtlety of emotion. How Leonard was able to project so much with so little has always astounded me.

Wow wow wowowowowow . . . okay, I need to slow down, I'm starting to stutter over my praise. You know how every now and then you read a story or a book that reminds you of why you loved reading to begin with? That story did this for me. THANK YOU! You dragged me along and didn't let me go until the very last word! I honestly can't find a single talking point to gush over because it's all so phenomenal. I can point out that I think your treatment of Kirk and Spock's telepathic link is one of my favorites. Your characters were spot on, and even the minor characters were round and entirely believable - no flat performances here. And your talent for plot quite simply rocks. The choices you made regarding POV and what to show us vs. what not to show us were really masterful. This story slapped me upside the head with awesome.
There's only one thing I don't understand. WHY ARE THERE NOT MORE REVIEWS AND READS FOR THIS GEM?
Thanks so much for your encouraging feedback (both of you).
Re: reads. It's not as bad as it looks. Image was the first story I'd posted and when the site was changed to accommodate the new movie, all the old 'reads' were lost. Can't recall the exact number but it was around 2,000.
Reviews: alas, it's always been difficult to get people to write them. Too bad because it is very discouraging to writers, to spend lots of time on a story and have it seemingly drop into a black hole. One of the main reasons I stopped writing in the 90's - over this story, actually.

I love this story and the little extra scenes in them. I hope one day Kathy Resch will do a compilation of all your stories. They are so good. It's like chocolate mousse cake good. I love the plot , the angst, the luvvve. I know I've repeated all this in the KSC reveiw, but you're an awesome writer. I'm glad you posted it. I appreciate the fact that your stories hit the right balance of romance with action and plot which is kinda rare. Anyway, great story. Keep on writing. I really enjoyed it.
