You've written one of the best fanfics I've ever read. You didn't just crossover the two universes, you told a damn good story with an intriguing plot: would Picard uphold the letter of the Prime Directive when confronted with killing off the Reavers to save millions of lives?

Entertaining, beginning to end. I like your grammatical style: you handle large groups in conversation well, with no confusion about who is speaking to whom. I can't speak to your grasp of the Next Generation characters, not being overly familiar with the series, but you have Mal and River down quite well, I think. Your story contained a strong moral message and some coherent extended canon, always a treat. In all, a story well worth the reading, and I'll definitely be checking out the sequel.

This story was FANTASTIC. I thought you nailed it all around.
Thanks for sharing...

This is such a great story! The Enterprise is ridiculously over-powered in the Firefly-verse, but you manage to blend the two worlds into a compelling story. Thank you for sharing it here. I look foward to reading more of your work.

Nice little crossover and interesting moral conflicts for Picard and his crew. I liked the interactions between the two crews and I think you've captured the different personalities of Serenity's crew very well. :)

this was a pretty good story. I almost stopped reading at the first chapter because of how OCC Picard was. but I am glad I gave it a shot.
thanks for writing it.

The warm and fuzzies are real.
Wily old coyote.
I imagined john de lancie for every second. Was glorious.

That was awesome! I love Q, even when he's a dick. You write well, so I think I'll see if you've got anything else in store for me. Thanks!

This is a great story. It's not easy to be entertaining while also juggling these kind of murky moral questions, but you manage both very well. The clashing tones make it hard to avoid compromising characters for the sake of the narrative, so I was pleased to see that everyone is well grounded.
The Star Trek elements are particularly well-represented here. It's surprising how few authors have the patience to tell a story that stays true to the spirit of this series, but you didn't take any shortcuts. Everything is established, explained, and discussed like it is in the show, and the result, in my mind, compares favorably with canon story-lines. Consequently, the result is a somewhat uneven fusion, with Star Trek being the dominant partner in this crossover, but the sequel turns the tables in a way that I find balances the overall narrative.
If there is one element of this story that bothered me, it was Chapter 10. While it wasn't strictly necessary for the story you told, I can't help but see the one-month time jump as a missed opportunity to more thoroughly involve the crew of Serenity in the story. It also makes the introduction of the Reavers a bit more jarring than I feel it could have been, since this is the first time the two have spoken one-on-one. On the whole, though, I don't think it tangibly weakens the story.
Overall, this is a very solid crossover, and an enjoyable story in its own right.

Beautiful story, and the characterization and diaoluge is spot on - I can see the characters acting and sounding like that in the shows. Well done!

Daggone it, i have work to do! I wasn't going to spend the evening reading an awesome and engaging crossover fic between the two best series I've never seen!
Good stuff. Would have appreciated less meeting-exposition pieces and more amusing interactions between the Trek and Firefly ensembles. Some of the action scenes fell a bit flat, though considering Enterprises power it's hard to see how they would NOT be. (Still, could we have seen the fight in the medical wing?) Also Mal waxed a bit... didactic on Reavers-understandable given the context.
But. I loved the test Q set up, I loved Serenity's reaction to everything enterprise-y (particularly the first time they saw it), I loved River's mix of insanity and lucidity, and her interaction with Troi. And I loved... well. I loved a lot about this fic. Many thanks for the read.

nicely done. thank you.

awesome story. great crossover, thanks!
| Whyhow chapter 13 . 4/14/2015
This is a really clever way of doing an AU: the alternative elements come only as a consequence of the plot events and the whole thing is secondary to the plot, not the whole point. This would actually be a better starting point than most for a post-Serenity AU, especially exploring the results of River being partially relieved from the burden of Miranda but not to the same extent as after the BDM and the 'Verse not knowing about Miranda.

I like the incorporation of Chinese into the conversations, but it would be helpful to those of us who don't speak Mandarin if you provided translations somewhere.
