Information

  • Dean Wesley Smith commented "This story, for me, one of the most powerful in all of SNW history, caught me up front with the clear voice, the format, and the viewpoint. We have a clear character in a setting, with a problem. My first thought as I was pulled down into this journal writing was can this author pull this off? By the time I got to the end, with the character change being in the Doctor, I was stunned. This is not only Star Trek at its best, but science fiction at its best, dealing with the themes and problems of alieness in all forms, both racial, and social". [1]
