I loved the conversation between McCoy and Spock about the mind-link. You do a great job showing McCoy's gift of being nosy and minding his own business at the same time, and invoking Spock's loyalty to Jim as a means of forcing for Spock to take care of himself. There was so much insight and emotional truth in your presentation of these friendships; I was very impressed and moved.
That's about the best praise I could get. This unconventional friendship between the three has fascinated and captivated me since I was a child. And I'll have to thank the Great Bird of the Galaxy for that - he created them, I just get to play with them now and again. ;-)

So - it's unresolved whether there is actually the potential for a problem (or, at least, it's unresolved in McCoy's head). Will you be revisiting this?
The problem becomes evident in 'Six Degrees of Separation,' and leads to the rift that drives the three of them apart at the end of the 5-year mission. I realize I'm going about this all wrong, but these aren't being written in chronological order (the stories are listed in the correct order in my profile). Most of the big pieces are already in place, and I'm going back and filling in the cracks as ideas come to me. ;-)
As always, thanks ever-so-much for reading and reviewing. :D
