Archives: At my site, ff.net. Here. Anywhere else, just ask. I'll probably say yes... just want to know where.

Author's Note: Some people believe that 'Grace' is a manifestation of the cloud Sam and the Prometheus is trapped in. Others (like me) believe that, like the other 'visitors' Sam has, Grace is someone in her life. Someone she just doesn't know yet. And with her smarts and witty comebacks, just who do you suppose this child's parents could be? So, deep in the back of Sam's mind, whether she realized it or not, she contemplated her future. This story stands as a possibility of what got those thoughts started to begin with.

Additional Note: Just for those that don't know where I'm getting some of this information on Jack's family... I'm not just pulling it out of my... um... hat. ( Richard Dean Anderson wrote a brief bio of sorts for one of the series reference guides from Jack's point of view. In that memo, he stated that 1) his (Jack's) parents were divorced and 2) his mother was a computer genius. So, there ya go. (
