nice
my favorite line of the entire collection is still:

"Speaking of philosophy," Kalib said, "anyone have a large object I can beat someone with?"

followed closely by:

"...and a handle was attached to a small fusion generator for him to power it, meaning that Kalib now technically qualified as mobile artillery."

Kalib is another fun character to write. :)

but both will be trumped with:

"and with a flurry of movement and a precise strike, the lightsaber sliced through that stupid bitch janeway's neck...." or something to that effect.

Well, we'll find out in a couple of hours. ;)

Well done, Sonnenburg. Many, many surprises in this story, but I've grown to expect the unexpected in your writing, which makes it great.

However, seeing the Borg as all business (...including the fruit baskets, that was just hilarious) was the most unexpected, and admittedly, I didn't see the death or Jorri or Morgan coming, and it interwove well with the plot.

I can't wait to see all the story parts in the Completed fanfic forum, you certainly deserve it!

I've often quoted David Gerrold when it comes to Sebastian's life, because his philosophy fits this poor guy's character: the hero has to hurt. Because if he doesn't hurt, why should we care?

Thank you very much. :)

The final part of the series is Dawn of Forever, of which the original is wrapping up in about twenty minutes, but I do plan to release a "redux" of it hopefully tomorrow, mostly cleaning up typos and also adding in things that I had to omit to avoid spoilers for the previous re-writes.

Hey random question, but did you ever explain how Kalib survired assimilation in SotN? IIRC You finished a scene with a S8472 drone nanoprobing him and then the next time we see him he's fine and dandy.

At least in the redo, there's a scene where he injects himself with some sort of nanoprobe counter agent.

I'm not going back to reread it so I could be wrong, but I'm sure Kalib crushed the hypospray before injecting himself, so it was his immune system alone that fought the nanoprobes off.

Hey, trying writing it, then you know what a marathon really is. :)

What happened was that Kalib pulled out an instrument to help enhance his immune system (it's not a hypospray, though). He held it in place for a while, but he did accidentally break it, but fortunately it was enough to help his robust defenses eventually overcome the nanoprobes, although not by much.
