Chapter 9: Chapter 9
Wow, I can’t believe I only just found this story! It’s so awesome! I hope I’m using this website right, I can only submit one review for the whole story, correct?
Anyway, I just love all the details you had in here. Just as an example, I really liked how you were true to the character and the Vulcans, by having them be very careful not to disturb the local eco system and looking out for endangered plants and the like so they wouldn’t cause any problems. That’s just exactly what the Vulcans would do. And the big with Spock/Kirk/Spock!Prime was the best! Loved, loved, loved that! :-D :-D :-D
Poor Jim, almost dying and Spock feeling the bond go when Jim’s brain shut down! Argh! That was so nerve wracking.
I do have a soft spot for Uhura and Bones finding together too, I think they are a great combination.
There was a funny moment where my European upbringing showed, when Ensign Charalam (sp?) was described when she bumped into Jim. All 5 feet of her. I thought she had 5 legs! Lol. I got it after re-reading that sentence a few times, but for ever after in the fic she was an alien with lots of arms and legs in my mind XD. That was quite amusing that I couldn’t get rid of that. Author's Response:
I'm so glad you enjoyed this story! It was long enough that I could include a lot more detail than I ordinarily do for my stories and I'm glad they worked for you. And yes, there were a few angsty moments in it. With everyone pairing off, it felt like Loveboat by the end! And so happy you liked my final resolution - I couldn't, absolutely couldn't, leave old Spock out - I love him too dearly. :)
And as for Ensign Charalam, that should probably read five foot for exactly the reason you describe - I suspect putting 'feet' is an English thing and Americans would have written 'foot' and are all probably initially confused by it! I mean, this is Trek so a being with five feet is totally plausible! :)
With regards to submitting reviews - you can do as many as you want, and certainly one for each chapter. There's also a small drop down menu below the comment box that allows you to add a star rating too.
Thanks so much for this awesome review! :)
