If James Kirk had said something like this, you'd know something was wrong with him. :D

(Edit: Guys, I'm unsure: Is "you would know" or "you had known" or something else?)

(Edit 2: John, was "effected" on the previous page correct?)

I'm not sure, RockB.

Here's what The World Book Dictionary says about it: "Since little or no distinction is made in pronouncing the first vowel of these words, the spelling is very frequently confused. Except in some obsolete and technical uses, affect is always a verb: the new rules affect the behavior of the entire student body. Effect is most commonly a noun, meaning "result": the effect of the explosion was visible for miles around. Effect is also a verb in formal English, meaning most commonly "to cause or bring about": The new coach effected a marked change in the students' attitude toward sports. Notice that the object of the verb affect is the person or thing influenced, while the object of effect is the change or result of the influence: to effect an improvement by affecting the people concerned."

Thank you very much! Interesting! Hmmm... I did & do understand "to affect" as "to apply an influence", so in this sense, I feel that "affected" would fit better but "effected" still works.

And I don't know why I have this tendency to omit whole words and not noticing it until much later: There should be an "it" after "Is" :-/

I'd like to see what a 24th century brain scan would look like!

I have really enjoyed this adventure so far! Adding the Medusan to the 24th (or later) century Enterprise-G crew was an excellent choice. We really don't know too much about them, so his capability was realistically handled. Very well written and drawn chapter in the TAS style. Already subbed. :)

Thank you, Jas!

I thought it was time the Medusans showed up again. They were in only one episode of the original series and we never saw them again. Enterprise-G takes place about 25 to 30 years after The Next Generation, so I think that would put it in the 25th century. Even with it's limited animation, I still loved the Star Trek cartoon show. Thanks again!

Well, hey, TAS did give us a great story arc for young Spock in the 2009 Star Trek. I'm a fellow Trek geek who's a fan of all the series (though I'm still struggling with Discovery). I only read Star Trek books. Anyway, I love the attention to detail you've given the story, the dialogue and the art. Good work!
