Another good feature-length story from your Rafale series! This was just as good as your Blood Red Dawn book and you made great use of the Hirogen and Devidians! Both hunting species in their own right! So this was a great blend of sci-fi and action!
Also Jessica is coming on, she is maturing and she still seems a little emotional but she kept her head during battle. So I think with more missions under her belt and a couple of years she could be a pretty good captain.

Finally had time to finish this today. Really well done, TS. Thank goodness for Memory Alpha; gave me the background I needed on the 'aliens' to figure out what was yours and what was canon, and to understand the mechanics behind their presence in the Bassen Rift.
I found this last chapter particularly satisfying; seems the blended crew of the Rafale will indeed come to realize it's not us against them, but us against them. I enjoyed seeing the cooperation between the Away Team and their Hirogen prisoner, but felt some sadness at how the final battle on the Warwick played out.
There was a nice mix of action and quiet desperation as scenes shifted between the bridge of the Rafale and the Away Team. Glad to see how this new tried and untested command team rose to the occasion. They are growing into their new roles, and each test they endure will further cement them into those new positions.
All in all an excellent piece.

Wow, that was quite a ride!
I loved the idea of essentially getting the Romulan ship to do the final firing. It makes sense - get them to do the dirty work. Kinda reminds me of turning an enemy's weapon so that he shoots his own man.
Author's Response: Thank you so much; I'm glad you enjoyed it! Now I'm worried the next one won't be up to caliber, lol
