This was very interesting, if not a bit confusing. It seems like there are some troubled times ahead. I'm not sure what led him to this point, but I'm nevertheless happy to see Kirk back in charge of the Enterprise. Could you perhaps give me some references? It sounds like this is a sequel, of sorts. So I can understand this better, could you perhaps point me in the right direction for a little background? Regardless of all that, though, Saavik's comment about having never been to Romulus made me laugh. I'll be reading more! ;)
In short, this story is TMP minus the two-plus year interruption, no desk job, no crew dispersal and plenty of politics on both sides trying to force Jim's hand. Maybe parts of 'Down Through The Circles' and 'Paradise Lost' might cast some light on it.
'31 Days' was originally written as a separate drabble series, each day being told in 100 words. I thought it still worked well as a prologue, even if a bit short on details. Thanks!
