So now we get to the key point of the opening change of that question.
You do a good job as in early chapters of showing the effect the dream has on both Jessica and the AU Bridget and how both of them are left to wonder from a dream what might have been and how much they friendship meant.
Good exploration of the STO opening story and how each different officer rises to the challenge in the myriad of universes.
This was an interesting choice of scenes and the use of music in the captain ready room to highlight the differences and similarities is well done.
Indeed a Merry little story.

Wow TS, I liked this a lot. Seems you and I took a similar approach...part of the reason why I don't read other challenge stories until mine is finished and posted. ;-)
Not being all that familiar with your universe, at the end I wasn't sure which was the true reality but in a way, I think that made it better for me - I could convince myself that somewhere, somehow they all survived.

Ah, the siren call of Parallels!
In one scenario, one lives, or another. Interesting how Justine either dies or is damaged in both. Perhaps there's a third scenario out there, where Justine takes charge, and is physically (but not necessarily mentally) all right?
Compelling, as always.
