Review of chapter "Coffee Talk" from JJDudeman
Really liked this. I'll say one thing, the Star Trek reboot really gave me a better appreciation for Kirk's underplayed cleverness. You've captured that well in this series. And I gotta admit, the way you had him mentally make note of her here as one to watch is both totally believable and made me excited about the idea. (Which would not necessarily be the case, if it was ham-handed. I'm not sure I'd care much for "Star Trek 2009 + Some lines from Buffy" in great detail.) Anyway, I've liked the depths you've shown in this series more than I would have thought, considering their brevity!
Comments from author:
I sat down about a year ago and watched about half of the original episodes. I remember watching them as a kid but didn't really catch a lot of the nuances back then. Yeah, the special effects are super horrible, but there was some really good writing that didn't get overshadowed by some not always great acting. (I'll admit, I covered my eyes sometimes and just listened so the bad special effects wouldn't ruin everything for me) But I have a feeling that some of the original Kirk stuff mixes in with the new Kirk when I write whether I try to prevent it or not. But both versions of Kirk have some fun layers to delve into that help play into what would make them a good captain - the ability to see things and paths, and a sense of compassion to find a win in that no-win scenario. :)

Slowly working on it. I'm hoping to get this series and a few others completed over the next few months

Review of chapter "Coffee Talk" from RevDorothyL
Good for Jim! And THAT's why he'll be a great captain one day (with a lot of help from the best crew in the fleet). :)
Comments from author:
I think he's got a lot of layers and that's what makes his character interesting and fun to write. (although the reboot seems to be a bit more shallower than his predecessor, but still enjoyably complex) Thanks!
