Wow, this is awsome storytelling, so different, so powerful!

Author's Response:

Thanks so much for your comments, angelocustode.  In the Beginning is one of my personal favorites of my K/S stories, but readers don't seem to see it the same way I do.  Therefore, I really appreciate your response. Perhaps the death in the story is just too much for readers to take, but even though I was the one writing it -- a very emotional situation! -- I always saw the little girl as the Mother, all the way through, with the associated implied immortality, for believers, anyway.  I've written one other story involving a non-human religion based on a Mother Goddess, so I obviously have some issues I was working out in that direction.  Anyway, thanks so much for the kind words. I'm very glad you found something of value in this story.

Legends of born from the travails of men.  I have always wondered how much is legend and how much is truth. This was reverent, and beautifully rendered.

A fabulous tale! There are many stories involving danger from a lonely, powerful alien or artificial intelligence, seeking love or meaning (among star trek stories I think of Metamorphosis, of Who Mourns For Adonais, and of V-ger in the first movie.) But I can't think of any that present this theme with as satisfying and imaginative resolution as this one. This is a surprising and wonderful story!

A tale from a gifted storyteller. I love the way this story unfolds. Kirk & Spock helping others while coming to terms with their own immortalty -together. Seeing them through the eye of an outsider givres a great perspective. The tenderness of the characters was heartfelt and realistic. Wonderful!
