Wonderful work again. Gaaaaah! Why are you so good? I especially like how you characterize Nyota. And I think you do an amazing job describing Spock’s inner thoughts. Great work!

It's 2016 and I can't find a sequel on your list. I'll look again. But I'm assuming this is it.
I'll imagine Spock Prime steps in and gets Sarek to be a proper father. And helps a bit himself because Spock Prime is awesome that way. Scotty and McCoy take a leave of absence and go to New Vulcan to design prosthetics along with an OC Vulcan character who can even design a neural net that gives Spock some of his telepathy in a new clone-mech-hybrid hand and arm that also uses nanotechnology.
I mean come one this is a century that has warp tech and teleportation. Surely they can design a fucking cool prosthetic. We have that sort of thing in development now even though some people still live in mud huts and subsist on dirt.
Jim is a selfish useless piece of crap. I can imagine Spock regaining his abilities with the help of technology but I don't see how you can fix stupid even in the future.

So so sad, and very well written.

This was sad, but I seriously wanted to burst into tears when I read McCoy's message to Spock. Great work and thanks for posting!

This is by far one of the most painful stories I have read in this fandom. Holy sh*t, have you taken the biggest, meanest stick and both literally and figuratively beaten the f*ck out of your characters. What has happened to Spock is heartbreaking...and was made so much worse by what Jim has done. I don't think I have ever been as close to hating him as I do here. I'm close, but not quite there yet. I wish you'd had Bones beat the sh*t out of him. Sure, he's in pain also, but what an absolute coward.
As much as I'm not 'happy,' you've done an excellent job here. Can't wait to read where you take this. Actually...I can a bit. I think I need to read a little fluff first. ;)

Oh my God. Oh my effing God. (I've never actually cussed in a review; too paranoid - what if it doesn't get posted? But I definitely would otherwise. Sorry, random side note.)
This story is kind of phenomenal. And by kind of, I mean it most definitely is. I apologize for my rambling - I'm pretty sure I'm still in shock, and this probably won't be the most coherent review I've ever left. But please bear with me.
The concept of this is just - wow. I love the realism of it - how you acknowledge the dangers of space exploration, something I think we often forget. And you certainly don't pull any punches: the characters react in very believable, very real ways... which of course makes the story just that much more enthralling.
You have a real knack for emotional impact, by the way. I was on the edge of my seat before you revealed what happened to Spock, and when you finally did, the word "amputations" just hit me with all the brute force of an 18-wheeler. And after that, you just had me absolutely hooked.
I loved your exploration of the different relationships: Kirk/Spock, obviously, but I definitely enjoyed the Spock/Uhura interactions and especially the Bones/Spock moments. Very few people truly grasp the dynamic between Bones and Spock, and I think you did it marvelously here.
There’s really no criticism I can come up with; a few typos here and there, but nothing distracting. Thanks for a really amazing story. I’m heading over to read the following installments now – just wanted to leave some feedback really quickly so you know your work’s appreciated.
I really enjoyed this fic. Like, loads.
