Chapter 3: A Logical Proposal
Part 3 and final part!
I'm looking forward to seeing capable!jim in action! Saving earth, going up against the empress, becoming emperer, and maaaaybe getting a bit softer due to his relationship with spock (not by being coerced).
You've also put a beleiveable spin on sarek/mccoy, especially with sarek needing to be stabilised. Also, who will be first officer - mitchell? Spock? I do actually like the mitchell character. And if uhura's in it and she hits on spock, kirk will literally kill her, lol! I'm interested to see how the vulcans are convinced to bond.
Anyway, to wrap this up, one of my fav things about this story is that jjim is son of a traitor instead of a hero.... And how that has affected his development. Will be interesting to see. Very original. (at first i thought maybe the empress was going to be winona, she seemed cold blooded...).
Looking forward to more!! Merry Christmas!
Jim will soon be in all business mode, but he hasn't quite had the proper push to getting there, yet. Jim's got a bunch of positions to fill in his crew roster, now. He's already made his selections. The transition of those positions is coming in the next chapter or so. McCoy/Sarek are going to embark on a vastly different relationship than Kirk/Spock. Glad you find that it works and makes sense. Was definitely hoping it didn't come out of nowhere. Uhura is in this, but not in competition against Kirk for Spock. :) She's got other things to deal with.
Jim has to prove himself different than his father in this version instead of living up to him - or besting him. And Winona will come into play, but certainly not as the Empress. I thought about it, but then settled on Sato. Something very different happened to Winona. Hope you enjoy it when it comes up.
Thank you for your super long review! Hope to hear from you again when I manage to continue this after recoverign from the insanity of the holiday season! Happy New Year! ~ RK
