Ah, there's something big and very secret going on.
The Klingons don't know, but one of them might be ... someone. Stellar Cartography is affected. Other systems are down. But our man Calhoun clearly knows - and this is Top Secret, whatever it is.
Since omega is the last letter in the Greek alphabet, it begs the question of whether this is a hugely destructive force being unleashed, or at least tested. Stay tuned.

Yup I get shivers all over again as I read this prologue. The Klingon beginning draws you right in and I think the fact they are dealing with a scientific conundrum only but adds to the mystery, the hook factor and making this story stand out. Then the switch to the Excalibur crew then adds a further level of interest as it registers that we have a Treklit crew here and somehow it begins to make this feel more serious already.
And of course our suspicions (well it was in the title) are confirmed - Omega Directive in operation - the Omega particle has been discovered. Yipes.
And again, I have to comment that I really liked the Klingon angle on this. Most interesitng.

So I've started reading this story again and I'm a little bit nervous because of the amount of DS9 relaunch content in it. I have no real love of DS9R as I feel it took the worst of DS9 season 7 and made DS9 a lot more weirder. However I will read this story to the very end as a) it has the Lambda Paz, and b) you have a knack for writing canon characters so maybe some of that will rub off on the DS9R characters which I -- so far -- have little love for.
Author's Response: Where does it suggest the Lambda Paz in this chapter? It's the Excalibur from the New Frontier series.

So we see the Omega Directive in action onboard a Starfleet and a Klingon ship too apparently. Now, it brings up some intriguing possibilities. I'm not so sure that the Klingons would have had a similar kind of protocol as the Federation but given the properties of Omega it is still a possibility.Also, given that the event seems to have happened near the Romulan border I expect to see some further complications in the form of our Romulan friends.
I like the early Klingon POV and hope that there is more to come of it. In a way, I was almost disappointed with the switch back to the Starfleet ship POV. Still you are building on characters I know about though haven't read - Lefler [apart from screen appearances] and Calhoun. I presume some of the Klingon characters also feature in the treklit universe but I like what you have done so far.
Author's Response: Yes, the crew of the IKS Gorkon and under the command of Klag are from the Klingon Empire (originally titled Gorkon) novel series. We'll be seeing them again after the prologue hinted by Klag getting a vague sense that Rodek (Kurn) might be part of the House of Martok. The part of the story involving the Excalibur and the NF ensemble is over (just chosen as a Starfleet ship that's regularly near the Romulan border)
