This was a very engaging and inspiring story. Thank you for writing it. Bringing Trekkies to the Star Trek universe is the way to go... But the question for us all is, should we stay clothes shop attendants until someone whisks us away into another universe, or is there something we can do differently today to better our universe and humanity?

Very nice indeed. It is quite a fine tale, although I would have wrote the ending a bit differently myself. (I don't like Q :)

Fantastic. Just an epic tale. Very well done. Every aspect was great. I can find no fault with this piece. Thank you for writing this piece.

Yeah: How hard can it be to operate a shotgun.
You just aim and pull the trigger. First make sure the end is at the enemy. :)

I've been recalcitrant to add a review to my own work, particularly because it will add a number to the review count which will not be accurate. But the latest review has brought up an issue which I simply feel I must address, if only briefly.
I have always been fascinated - if somewhat irritated - by the blithe assurance which Picard gives Lily in the film "First Contact" that the twenty-fourth century has done away with the concept of money. The most striking contrast to this idea is, of course, the existence and profligate appearance of the Ferengi. As it is my nature to try to explain those minor things which appear to be Star Trek faults, I will attempt to do so now. Please believe that I am serious in this endeavor; when I was in college, I wrote a paper (please believe I am telling the truth) entitled: The Socioeconomics of the Twenty-Fourth Century. This paper, which received (as you might imagine) mixed results from my professor and fellow students, attempted to explain the difficult situation.
The Federation is not Earth. It merely has its home on Earth. The socioeconomics of the galaxy (or even the region which the Federation controls) are vastly complicated. In the twenty-fourth century, it is apparent that a system of non-monetary rewards was put in place, in an effort to create a society which was not based on personal gain. This is obviously the state in which our hero, Captain Picard, either grew up or was placed. He believes in it - we can see that in his dialogue with Lily. This does not, of course, mean that it will work. It is perhaps a trial system which will eventually be replaced. Furthermore, we must remember that it is ONLY Earth-based. This is extremely important.
Other worlds have other ways of dealing with the socioeconomic problems facing all of existence. The Ferengi, for good example, face it in such a way as to make it a near godhead. Numerous examples of other species dealing with it are given to us in the course of TNG, and we must accept them as they come to us. Ultimately, it is important for us to realize that the world Picard was describing to Lily was ONLY Earth, and for a simple reason: that was the only inhabited world she was aware of. Please remember that Picard is an advanced Starfleet officer, who has dealt with time travel before, and is aware (though I'll admit he chooses to deal with the situation in a rather bizarre way) of the consequences of giving out too much information.
Finally, I'll leave with a great thank you to all who've read and reviewed and continue to do so...this project lightened a dark time in my life, and it continues to cheer me up whenever someone takes the time to review my little first novel. Thank you so much, readers and reviewers. Thank you so very, very much.

If they ahve no money then how do they earn a living? How do they pay rent to keep their electricity .
How do those medical starfleet people have the will to go on? What's their benefits? Any rewards for doing exceptionally well done jobs"?
Never mind: You can obviously tell my dislike for communisum so please ignore me and get the Q-beating over with.

Very well done story just like the TV-show only it feels like a novel:
What I don't understand is in the episode *Q-Who?* the first weapon fired at The Borg was your basic everyday phaser and it actually made several holes in the craft which the Borg had to focus their attention on for a short bit.
Then later he fired photon torpeados which didn't do squat and he didn't resort back to the phaser that worked which he could've blasted them to pieces if fired enough.
WHY? What the *beep* was wrong with Picard?
Hell why didn't Mr Q even decide to give The Borg a 'Special Q Beating' they soon won't forget or will they eventually adapt to his powers?
Either way at least Mr Q would've teach them a 'hard lesson' on messing with the universe in worse sick ways then he would as at least Mr Q has valuable points don't ya think?
Sorry for so many questions and sorry if I wrote these poorly. I must deserve a Q beating for this. :(

So, I've been wondering, were is Seven of Nine? Why hasn't she been helping in the fight? I would think that, seeing as she has more exsperince with the Borg then Picard, you would have as part of the bording party. Also, what happoned to Voyager?
I really like this story, and I can't wate to read more. :)

SUPER STORY, I AM GOING TO READ YOUR SEQUEL SOON
| Kayin Sparkle Dreemurr chapter 38 . 9/16/2009
My good sir, I must say this is one of the best reads in my life when it comes to Star Trek. I think its an understatement when I say that you have perfectly molded out the characters, real, fictional, semi-fictional, and trans-dimensional (or whereever the Q live :P) into a spectacular web of action, drama, suspence, and romance.
I look forward to reading more of your works, Star Trek or not.
NOTE: I did wonder throughout the story, why did Starfleet not try to bring out Species 8472? Their ships were VERY easily able to outclass those of the Borg.

Reading this book was like looking into the face of God and seeing Him smiling back and saying, "You are my most wondrous creation."
| Wolfman chapter 4 . 4/2/2008
This is extremely interesting.
| Sean Mulligan chapter 38 . 3/12/2008
I'm glad that you finished this fic. It does a good job of presenting the Star Trek characters.
| Jeramy Tiernan Layton chapter 38 . 3/2/2008
Spectacular piece of work. You spent three years in the writing and it shows. This is a polised piece of work, and I can't imagine many people would disagree that this could reach wide appeal if published. Of course, the people who properly own Star Trek probably wouldn't like that, but your writing is excellent, but your plot devices, the plot itself, and the characterization of your people... magnificent.
You'll probably find it interesting that a dear friend of mine, C. sent me here, praising your story. Let me tell you, I was not disappointed. Thank you for the wonderful entertainment.
