    I love fan fiction and so, when I stumbled across this book, I thought I'd take the opportunity to download it for free. However, very quickly I regretted bothering. I can't comment on the story, as I couldn't bring myself to read past the first chapter. Mostly this was due to the jumpy narrative style, but also I couldn't live with the misuse of the word 'whom'. Thompson has fallen for the trap of always assuming the word 'who' is the wrong choice. (The way I always check, if I'm unsure, is to replace 'who' and 'whom' with 'he' and 'him' respectively and see which would sound better. (If it's a question, you'll need to rearrange it into a statement to check properly.)) Justin Thompson's passion for the Star Trek universe does shine through with every line, and I can forgive him for naming the central character for himself (after all, who doesn't dream of being a Starfleet Captain?), but I think that sometime his desire to prove his knowledge of the canon can outweigh the need.

He should also consider placing less emphasis on the exposition of his characters pasts. (There are many books on this subject, often described as 'showing not telling'. So Justin, I recommend you read up.)< Less
