Really liked this story. Many Trek stories can easily be applied to contemporary settings but this one almost felt like a contemporary setting turned into a Trek tale.
And I don't buy that photographs will fade away in the future and give way completely to moving recordings and holo projections. There is a poetic beauty and lasting grace to a photograph, taken just the right way, that a moving picture could never do justice. And this story demonstrates exactly why that is.

Oh, this is so lovely!
I really love the names you've got going on here - Gilgamesh (the original flood myth), Stormcrow (evokes what Theoden calls Gandalf while Theoden is possessed by evil), and Hudson (just a basic, almost everyman sort of name).
I had to read back before I realized this is jessiy's father. I really like this backstory for him.
