Review of chapter "Just Doing Her Job" from ShyBob
Lovin' the hot green chick (and not just for the sex). Nice to see you give Gaila more "screen time" with surprising depth.

Review of chapter "Just Doing Her Job" from RevDorothyL
"you never expected me to be anyone but Jim, who never expected anything more of you"
Thanks for filling in what -- in the movie's limited time frame -- had seemed like a fairly superficial character, and an extremely superficial encounter that existed only so that Kirk would overhear Uhura's comment about the Klingon message. You really did a great job of making a meaningful connection between Gaila and the larger events in the movie.
(Also, thanks for the heads-up about the poor quality of the novelization -- that'll save me a few bucks!)
Comments from author:
Thank you! I'd heard a little bit about Gaila's intended backstory beforehand, and was disappointed how much got cut from the final product, so I wanted to fill some back in. =)
(The novelization, as a book, is OK; as a novelization of the movie, it's just-- disappointing. ADF was clearly writing from a very old script, as much of the dialogue and action is severely off, and all of his character's internal voices sound the same).
