I... see...

Well, I look forward to reading the details, whenever you get them written down.

I certainly did! I really liked all the action you packed into the second half, and the ending was simply beautiful. And Schrodi... just makes me laugh in amazement as much as anything.

of course the scary thing..She just made Rear Admiral in game The Dauntless won't be able to be repaired and she has been given a new ship. The USS Cygnus. Better keep her away from black holes.

Does she have an Android BOff named Vincent?

It's a nasty topic, but you handled it well, and kept it under control. Nice work indeed
I agree that the Cardassians do have a serious social sickness. That said, I do not believe all Cardassians have fallen to it, and that they are capable of becoming and doing better. That's why I tend to write good Cardassians...not because I am ignoring their past, but because I think there are decent people among them (such as Tekeny Ghemor, in the show).

At least it's not the USS Rosinante - then you'd really need to worry about black holes...

Inevitably, there ARE good people among the Cardassians, but the vibe I always got off the show was that the 'old style' Cardies were pretty nasty customers, with their worst/cruelest/nastiest elements running the "Labor camps".

Even within their Military Regime, there were likely Cardassians of Honour and Integrity, compassion, and kindness-decent folks-but you wouldn't FIND such men in the Camps. (Well, Maritza, maybe...)

and the time period was a rough one. But like I said, I had to cut a LOT of material to tighten this up and make it readable without a barf-bag.

(at least, readable to ME without a barf-bag.)

Apologies for how it translated from notepad to forum post, by the way. I think my 'next' freestyle challenge will address Orions again. There is a direction (more fascinating than horrifying) I want to go with D'Moj.

Such people probably tended to get killed if found out in a place like that--or forced to flee, if caught or about to be caught in acts such as showing compassion to prisoners or trying to help them escape. I consider the situation of the few rebels in the ranks in such regimes on Earth, and that's what I would guess based on that.

I think we're on the same vibe then.

Regarding Cardassian stereotypes I direct your attention to the curious case of Aamin Marritza.
