Yipes. What a return! Lots of ominous developments and at each turn I must say I am not sure where you are going to go. I gotta give huge kudos for the scene with Ensign Kira and the strange prophet visions. For something often seen in fanfics and in canon it can be hard to create an atmosphere, a forboding tension surrounding them. However, you did so with Kira's vision. It was quite compelling and of course very ominious.

Nice ending. A big build up and good delivery of the expectations.
Author's Response: Thankyee! The last segment was a spur-of-the-moment decision, but I think the mini-cliffhanger works better than trying to cram everything into the next teaser. Onwards!

Ho ho. A twist on the holodeck malfunction epsiodes. Nice build up to the actual problem occuring. I also like the way the series is layering in little nods to an overall arc that doesn't take away form the immediate epsiode.
Author's Response: Yes, my very own holodeck episode. I didn't think of it as such until someone said exactly what you did on Omega... and you're both absolutely right. :P Though the series never totally destroyed the holodeck... hmm. Glad the little hints/foreshadowing is going down well. :)

Tom cleared his throat. “My first,” he said after a moment, his voice low. “Let’s hope it’s also the last.” He turned his eyes skyward, where blue dome of the city’s shield still rippled and pulsed. He, along with expedition leaders Will Gates and Nathan Carson, had elected to keep the shield up for a few more days, or until they were certain there was no immediate threat from the Borg.
Somehow I doubt they will be the last of the deaths we will see. However, the arrival of support seems to point to a brighter more positive future - assistance that comes with high technology from Voyager to boot. However, that in itself might be a problem as it seems to have made some among Admiralty arrogant and of the opinion that they can best the Borg easily - enough to actively seek a war with the Borg. A deadly and frightening prospect.
And if that's not enough, there is something going on in the planet - changes of some kind and it seems to be connected to some larger danger - one in which the prophets are willing to show themselves. Hmm ... an intriguing and puzzling development.
Author's Response: We'll see...! But yes, two powerful starships is a welcome sight any day, in my book. And as for the Voyager's technology, well... as you say, it's not a good idea to actively engage the Borg.Ah, and I'm glad you spotted that! I think it was a little too subtle when I posted it at Omega, as no one noticed it till I pointed it out. Hehe... watch this space. ;)

What a bumper of a chapter to kick the new season off. An all out confrontation with the Borg with lots of twists and turns to the tale before it reached its end. Good stuff. T'Sora's mind meld in particular grabbed my attention. I love this Vulcan. Kira came up with a great little plan there and it worked out well. Nice twist to end the resolution.
Author's Response: Thank you! Glad this still entertains into its second "year"... hope you'll stay tuned!
