@marcus:

I actually wrote the end that way to sort of show Bryan trying to process what he was seeing. But ty for the critique. It'll give me something to think about for my future entries.

@jinx:

Excellent entry! It's interesting too see what Trill might have been had things worked out differently.

How about calling it the Museveni? After the scientist in Andromeda who created the Nietzschean sub-species?

It isn't entirely 100% canon, but then it is Trek... Nothing is 100% canon apart from the the shows, so I feel it's ok to use it, and being fair, the Parasites were in the shows, and it was never explained where they came from, so it could be canon, lol.
Ahh, that definitely makes sense, as Jinx being able to see that parallel and needing to prevent it

Jinx meeting the 'prime' incarnation of mirror Jinx's host, unjoined, of course.
Trill's reaction to what the mirror symbionts are doing.
Jinx's quest to stop the mirror symbionts, and free the enslaved Trill population.
Mirror universe Trill, their plans and goals, and how they proceed.
Definitely some good options there to explore, it will be great to see what comes out in future work

No worries, I totally understand, I guess I was just thinking of pacing from my own perspective

As I said, something to think about. We all have our own writing styles, so it's only natural for us to interpret the same thing differently.

Absolutely so, that's what makes these LCs so much fun and so challenging I have to admit, I just realized that I did pretty much the same thing at the end of my entry when Darien is re-integrated and regenerated, but equally, there had been the preceding scene which was clear that Marcus was already dead

Well, now. A chance to put my main character through a serious emotional and existential crisis! I couldn't pass that up, could I? (As usual with me, it goes on for a bit.)

Wow
Loved the Iconian references And equally, that was my take on the MU doppelgangers, not that they were simply good/evil flips, but how people would have been having had different experiences or different choices, so I really enjoyed reading that

Some really excellent stories in this batch, including (of course) another great work by shevet. I confess, I'm intimidated; even if I had a solid idea for any of my captains, I don't think I'd dare after reading these.

bortjinx: yes, I remember reading of the symbiont/parasite connection on Memory Beta. All too plausible that, like the Goa'uld from a certain other setting, the mirror versions of our familiar tummy-slugs would have a different sort of "symbiosis" in mind. (To quote the hive-queen in the unfortunate Lt. Commander Remmick: "We seek peaceful co-existence." *shudder*)

If you'll forgive the pedantry: it's shuttles that are named for scientists. Runabouts are named for rivers; all the ones in canon are for rivers on Earth, but by 2409 you could probably make the excuse that they've run out / moved on to other founding worlds, if you want something more exotic.
