Why This Must Be Read
: I started reading this fic not long after I recced my last bunch of Star Trek fic. I lost a whole afternoon to it! What I enjoyed best about this fic is that is very much about Janice, her life, and her growth from a determined but unsure young girl to a young woman who helps runs arguably the most difficult ship in the Federation. I love how the the author draws out Jancie's relationships with everyone around her, particularly Captain Pike as a friend and mentor, with the ladies of the Enterprise and with Kirk himself. (Can I just say, I think these two might be my new favourite couple for this movie?)
