“An eye for an eye, eh?” Kozar replied with a wry grin. “That’s one of Earth’s oldest legal precedents, and it has been a justification for unending cycles of violence that spanned generations. But we haven’t taken it to those kinds of extremes in centuries. Where does that brand of justice end, Hadar?!”
Great line...great episode. I'm liking this story!
Author's Response: Old story, just made a few recent edits. Glad you're reading on either way...:)

That was a good story, but to much of the dialogue (and the style of some of the scenes) was copied word-for-word from Shockwave part 2. Limis getting on with that Grabowski fellow, that didn't make any sense. Even if it was a spur of the moment sort of thing, it still didn't make sense. You had some good bits like Limis entering that imaginary 20th century world with Benny that was clever. I just think this could have been better without the story so closely emulating Shockwave, part 2.
Author's Response: I see that the similarities to "Shockwave" are far more obvious than "Moral Dilemma's" similarities to "Anomaly". At least it's not a complete carbon copy like "The Naked Now" was of "The Naked Time" while "Fascination" (DS9) and "Singularity" (ENT) were less obviously similar. In the grand scheme of things, this story needed a resolution to the more immediate crisis while still leaving other issues unresolved. As for Limis and Grabowski hooking up, I would say it was an example of this ensemble being far less restrained than the "best and brightest of Starfleet" (though, Grabowksi probably should have shown more restraint). I can promise, however, the consequences will be nowhere in the area of John Connor's birth being a pre-destination paradox.
