Review of chapter "A New Team" from AceDreamer
An interesting short(ish) story, which I'm pretty sure is based on:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Sten_Chronicles
I've read a great deal of science fiction, and I _think_ I've read some of the stories in this 'military SF' series of novels. If you don't mind me saying so, I think the quality of your writing in this BtVS cross-over is at least as good as that in the 'Sten' books, and may well exceed them.
The 'Sten' series is 'C'-grade science fiction, amusing, with plenty of action, but not (as far as I can recall) exceptional in any way. Though the bits around the Emperor aren't bad. I'm glad you found things in them which led you to write this x-over fanfic.
Whistler becoming human as part of the team - I don't recall any other fanfic which uses this idea. I like what you've done with jonathon, here, my only complaint is that I'd like to have seen more of him in action - he was always an under-used character in BtVS, almost totally in a supporting role - a lot of wasted potential.
So, thanks for writing this, and I'd be happy to read more of your work in future.
