Looks like a deus-ex-machina at the end... good old transporters...
Good character development for Lif - and also for Garla. Always satisfying to see not just original characters, but original species being developed. Especially since these are not the series leads - although Lif appears to rapidly becoming one.
Author's Response: What would Trek be without the magic of transporters? I wouldn't call QD a Lif story, but he certainly plays an integral part here. Simiar to on-screen Trek, I always tried to focus on one or two members of the ensemble cast per story beyond Owens and Star. A decade or so in, I still feel I have not have done justice to all of them.
