Pike is a cool and fascinating guy, and this is a great take on his thoughts. I think you got his character very well. Great job.

Wow. Good to see things from Pike's perspective.

through reading your stories I have gained a respect and empathy for Pike that I did nit previously entertain. At that point the enterprise was still his and Kirk not yet an official captain. Thank you for opening my eyes to a new dimension of the movie, in this and your other stories.

i LOVED this, and i can't wait to read the rest of your fic! your writing style is wonderful - (and i'm sorry for my word choices, i can never do stuff like this justice) and it's really great to see things so clearly from second-person perspective!
i probably won't end up reviewing all of your stories that i read - it would most likely mean you recieving about 20 almost identical lots of incoherent adoring babble - but i have a feeling my favourites list will be increasing drastically!

I always did wonder what happened after they rescued Pike...this is fantastic!

Amazing. I'm not sure that I have words to describe the wonderfulness of this fic-the utter realism that pervades it, the delicate handling of a tumultuous situation, and so much more. It is superbly written and characterized. A couple phrases really caught my attention: "...not a mere three years after his first glimpse of all that raw potential bleeding away in a bar in rural Iowa..." and "...he'd seen the young man's juvenile record, after all, and knew perfectly well how to read between the lines..." were particularly wonderful.
Thank you for posting such an enjoyable story.

Great introspection. I suppose Pike really is the only one of the crew who can give such a balanced overview of the events that have occured. It's great to see his point of view. :)

I love the analysis of the crew's actions. Nice.
"Unlike many of his peers, Pike didn't think Kirk needed any lessons in facing his fears: he'd seen the young man's juvenile record, after all, and knew perfectly well how to read between the lines. But Kirk's reflexive response to that fear would become even more of a problem if he didn't learn how to keep it in check."

Wow. What a really insightful piece into a character that doesn't get too much love in this ficdom. You've given Pike a voice that we really didn't get to see after his rescue from the Narada and I think you did it magnificently. This fic really weighs in on all that happened in the movie and the weight of it all upon Pike. This was a fantastic and insightful view. Great job!
| Renton chapter 1 . 5/29/2009
I absolutely loved Pike in the new film and I think this story really gives credit to an already great character. Awesome story. :)
| Mariagoner chapter 1 . 5/28/2009
This was fantastically written and so poignant as well. Pike really came alive in this piece. Great job!
| otahyoni chapter 1 . 5/26/2009
I just adore Pike. Thank you for writing him. This was a great way to look at the aftermath of the battle. :)
| Yume chapter 1 . 5/23/2009
awesome fic :D loved the sequel too!
| mlgm chapter 1 . 5/20/2009
Lovely little story and very true to the version of Pike we get in the movie. (It does make me interested and see what sort of media storm Kirk and Co would be subject to - not to mention finishing their classes before graduation.)
| Affff chapter 1 . 5/19/2009
i really liked this piece... i especially like the fact that you're using pike's perspective...
