It's definitely interesting! I'm a little lost as to why Kirk needed to go off, as it were, in order to complete the mission. But otherwise, it reads just like an episode. I like Spock suggesting counseling; that didn't happen nearly often enough in my opinion.
The ending, of course, was darling, and in character, and a good wrap to the whole story.
Author's Response: Thank you for the reviews SLWalker. There was originally a reason given in the story for why Kirk needed to go off and be somewhere else, and I think it must have gotten lost in one of the revisions. I will see if I can find it and put it back in in the rewrite. Other than that, I am glad you liked the story. Thanks again for reading.

Good man, Styles. Spock was in particularly fine form here; mentally hearing him threaten to blow someone out of space totally made my day. I'm still looking forward to seeing what's going on in Kirk's head, too!

Oh. Oh! Oh, the plot does thicken, doesn't it? o.O Now I'm definitely hooked! What could have happened, who could be controlling Jim's moves? And what's going to happen with the Enterprise? And what's going to happen to the captain?
This story makes for one heck of a ride!

Oh, wow. Okay, something is definitely up with the Captain. It doesn't seem like it could be simple PTSD, though. More like... a switch flipped in his head and now he's lost his grip. I like Spock and McCoy trying to deal with him, and I'm really looking forward to seeing what this idea is!

I really love the interplay between Kirk and Spock here. And how Spock is calm, but still manages to implore to Jim's warm, human nature to go and visit Chekov. It's an exceptionally solid scene.
His reaction to McCoy later almost takes me aback by comparison, but it doesn't actually surprise me much. Jim really does have the ability to lash out, doesn't he? I can only hope that everything goes well, and that Chekov turns out okay, and they patch things up.
Well written and executed! Looking forward to more.

An unconventional method of locating the 'real' Jim Kirk, to be sure, but it was damned effective! It begs the question, though, of whether Kirk is unconscious someplace and thus Spock is able to enter his dreaming mind-state?
Curiouser and curiouser...

Wow, now Kirk’s resorted to throwing things at his senior officers?! Spock and McCoy have clearly made the correct call, but as for what’s happened to the captain… that’s anyone’s guess.
Author's Response: Thanks for the reviews. I really appreciate your taking the time to read my story and give me your constructive comments. As you have probably figured out by now, Kirk is not quite himself. I would love to know what you think of the rest of the story, and also any comments or suggestions you might have for making it better, if you have time to tell me. Thanks again! Gatekeeper

The conversation between Kirk and Spock rang true to their friendship, but after all’s said and done, Jim’s going to owe Bones an apology. Holding the ship’s surgeon responsible for a crewmate’s injury that he’s treating is blame-shifting of the highest order, and Kirk knew it when he said it.
An intriguing opening chapter!
