Background information

  • It was originally as part of the "Tales From the Farthest Star" anthology created during NaNo 2013. It was made up of numerous stories based on Weekly Free Write prompts from the Ad Astra forums. This was based the 8th prompt, which was on the theme of "first day".
  • The story was released on both the The Farthest Star blog and the The Farthest Star website.
  • While not explicitly stated Callan's mention of the "recent" invasion of the Cardassian Union by the Klingons is meant to place this story within a few months of the episode "The Way of the Warrior".
