Interesting Prologue, does a good job of helping to establish Captain Grace McAfee.
Showing her warm character by her protection of her father.
Nice choice of setting the archaeological dig and the survey ship, as it help show hoe distant Grace has become from exploration command.
I do love the father/daughter relationship and then having to explain to the Andorian V’Shaali, that it is a sign of affection despite appearances. It a nice summary of the ultimate computer battle exercises as a royal cluster-frak.
Easy to read writing and it all flows nicely and helps sets the scene for the coming story.

It's a bit of a switch for me, reading something set in the TOS timeframe... I have to admit to never really watching anything else than TNG and beyond (just recently picked up some older movies)
I like the introduction it gives us a taste of Grace and sets the stage nicelye ^_^
Author's Response: Thank you! Most all of my other stories are set in the TNG and Post-Dominion War time-frame so I have to adjust my thinking when I write.

Great to see this one again. It's one of my all-time favorite stories of yours. Not only is it set in the too often overlooked TOS era, it also deftly dismisses the silly notion set forth in that series that women weren't able to command starships.
Author's Response: Thanks, CeJay. I decided to dust this one off, make a few minor edits, and move forward. The story had hit something of a dead-end but I think I have a way forward so new content will be posted after the older stuff is up.
