I’m going to have to admit that I really like this story. It’s a sequel of sorts to “A Letter” that I put up last week. The difference is that it seems to have some kind of cohesive plot to it. There is really only one character but his personality is amusing. I think you’ll see shades of Star Trek in the things that happen in this story — and the character even makes an oblique reference to that fact — but I think it takes things much farther than Star Trek ever dared to go. Captains Kirk and Picard never played stakes this high.
This is obviously a story written by a teenager but it’s kind of fun and not as bad as I had feared.
