I love McGregor's body language in the first part. Just because it's so adorable. (There's that word again.) I love his address to the crew, and their response. Despite the madness, it seems a happy ship, or at least not a hell ship, most of the time. I admit I'm a little concerned for what McGregor's planning, but what else is new?
Stanley is being decidedly creepy, in that sweet and innocent way of his, this chapter. Come to think of it, it makes the first RR almost seem like an emotional reprieve from the possible and potential weight of the universe. Him freaking Noah out was funny, though, when he airlocked himself.

Oh, Stan, you loveable alien you. This was a nicely done scene between the two, Noah and Stan, and it was nice of Noah to state that, yes, he really is quite scared of those visions. And he well should be, considering how Stan himself has no clue what’s really going on in them other then they’re full of pain and suffering (reassuring words, Stan). So, with the two of them here, I felt it was good to see Stan the man explain himself a bit. Noah again is citing regulations too much (McGregor report something to Starfleet … dude, where have you been the last few weeks?) but when Stan left the room via the airlock, that was a LOL moment.
I already knew Stan could do that particular move (thanks, first RR!) so it wasn’t surprising to me but poor Noah was freaking out badly. The way he reacted was natural, especially after how spaced (PUN!) Stan was before and how he had just gotten out of the medical bay for having a weird vision thing. So, totally, I understand why Noah freaked.
Furthermore, I think that McGregor and Molly’s reactions were just priceless. McGregor moaning over the scarf, Molly rolling her eyes at him doing that at warp … man, this crew is a tight knit group.

Blimey, I had my heart in my mouth when Stanley decided on his little walk outside. I wonder what other surprises this one of a kind alien will spring on us all.
So McGregor's off to piss T'Hos off. I imagine this is going to me a fraught and messy affair, whatever he has planned.
Well with Stan anything might be possible. Like that it surprised. Just imagine how poor Noah felt! Ha! McGregor is planning to piss T'Hos off and is feeling rather smug about the opportunity. We'll have to wait and see whether he is successful or not in his plans. But I think he will certainly manage to piss T'Hos off.

Miranda Fave, I loved this! Your characterization is awesome, each one has his or her own distinct personality; they feel very real. The whole crew, though, is just desperately in need of some people skills!
McGregor is hilarious and insane (though he claims a method to his madness!), and I feel terribly sorry for the long-suffering Cartwright. Noah continues his role as the ingenue, and is maybe suffering some aftereffects of his encounter with Ronak? Some kind of emotional transferrence? Or maybe he's just that upset about his roommate being a psychopathic Vulcan. Then there's Stanley, who is always fascinating. But you would think he'd WARN people before pulling that trick! Or that someone would inform him that he NEEDS to warn people about it. I liked the slightly deeper discussion of his visions, too. Still very mysterious, though.
Great stuff, keep up the good work!
Aw thanks kes7! They feel real because they are real - I mean - thank you, that's a lovely compliment, especially given how out there some of them are. Hee hee. But people skills! McGregor's dripping with people skills! Well ... maybe not, thankfully he has Molly there for him. Though he kinda expects her to watch his back and sort out the paper work and stuff.
As for Noah, you might just be right. Stan is the man. But he doesn't seem to appreciate how such behaviour could be construed as well crazy and idiotic. Glad it worked and even more pleased you read and reviewed. Thanks heaps kes7.
