I'm not sure where this story came from. It's my first non-crossover Trek fic, and probably my first unequivically non-comedic story of any type. The basic concept just occured to me, and I found myself writing it as I went along. I was quite surprised by the ending.

This story takes place in 2288, during the events of the Mirror Universe novella Sorrows of Empire. )

I've been reading about the new Star Trek movie. For those who don't know, this is a prequel movie, set shortly before the Original Series, with a new cast playing Kirk and co[1]. One of the things I read was that there was a time-travel element to it, and as well as Sylar-from-Heroes as Young Spock, there would also be Leonard Nimoy as Old Spock, emphasising that this was the same universe, not a total reinvention like Battlestar Galactica

This made me think of something which they probably aren't doing, but which I think would be a really good idea. This is, basically, the feature-length pilot the original series never got at the time.

So, by the rules of Star Trek feature-length pilots, there should be a quick cameo by either Scott Bakula under several layers of aging make-up or Jolene Blalock with grey hair.

[1]Oddest casting decision so far: Simon Pegg as Scotty. As it said in SFX, his only similarity to James Doohan is not being Scottish...
