Neato concept of the shared/linked holodecks. Very current world tech juxaposed onto Trek tech. Neat.
Nice switch of tones here. Back to the friendly and happy. The change in pace keeps us on our toes. Also like the way the consequences of medical injuries is played out. There's still healing and recupperation to be done despite the 'magic' of 24th century medicine.

Why would they enter into a relationship that would produce nothing to show for the effort beyond their affection?
Ah, a question that made me smile. The answer, love, is the correct one but I feel Jessica is just scratching the surface there. The interactions with Bridget and Justine were both fun but it seems Jessica is getting the short end of the stick on this trip ... I wonder why she took the assignment on the Rafale? Hmm.

Ok, so Jessica is not alright after the incident on the bridge but at least she is on her way to recovery and even gets to spend some time with her friends in the holodeck.
I continue to enjoy this story and getting to see much of what is happening from a junior officers perspective. By the way, did you establish what race Jessica hails from and how come she has a human name? Sounds like there's a story waiting to be told there.
Author's Response: Yuppers! Check out "Interlude - Grown" for a bit of backstory on how she got her name. :) And I'm glad you're enjoying the story; my goal was to do from just the perspective of the main characters, who all happen to be junior officers. That's why (later on) some things will happen that might leave you going "wait, what happened elsewhere on the ship?" The answer is...who knows? If the character wasn't there, they don't know, so neither do we. It turned into a neat dynamic (I thought at least) and I hope you continue to enjoy it!

Though I’m glad Jess got some down-time with her friends on the holodeck, it’s certainly not the ‘real’ thing. I’m hoping she can find the time to meet up with them in the flesh in Risa, as the bonds of friendship can salve wounds both physical and psychological.
That was a nice bit of insight with Dr. S’Tel and her acknowledgement of the burdens of a healer. It appears Jess is in good hands.

I do hope the holodeck activities didn't drain too much power. Don't want to get the others in trouble, or place them in any risk.
Good quick thinking on the doctor's part; I imagine the first shot could've killed our gal. Learning her physiology on the fly like that - is that logical?
Author's Response: Unfortunetly, the doc did know she was allergic...it was the helmsman on the bridge, Wirstowx, who didn't know. He kinda just grabbed a kit, took the hypo, and did what he was trained to do. Jess couldn't exactly tell him to stop with her being...you know...unconscious. I originally wanted to do that scene (Wirstowx administering first aid and Jess getting worse), but couldn't think of a way to tell it (my writer's block has been killing me over here) so I went with just a recap in the medical log. Maybe I'll fix it up later, I dunno.
