tl;dr, Enjoy your other 100 dilthium tip.
I loved this mission. I absolutely agree that this is Trek.
I would have enjoyed a bit more about the murder itself. I mean, settling her as a citizen, alright. But she still committed murder; and we never really sorted her defense on that one. I also found it REALLY jarring that our dead admiral was just left in the holodeck. I took this mission, bopped around for a few hours, did some doffs... I mean, real-time, I was halfway across the quadrant at a point.
I imagine he'd be rather smelly.
This could have been broken up, I feel, into two missions; the murder investigation and the trial. As it stands, both sides felt a little bit rushed to me. Part of this is the way you skip over whole big chunks of time. I would LOVED to have seen the trial and interrogation go on so we could hear the whole thing. Even if it's a bit shorter than is realistic. It would have been better than the gold text of summarizing doom.
Thanks for the feedback, but it wasn't a trial of her associated with the crime. The Admiral was also not left in the holodeck.
But, based on other feedback, you are probably right that I summarized too much with gold text. I try to pace things where the closer you get to the end, the less reading is involved until the climax.
