Cute story! i like it that Trip does notwant toshare his sightings for a while, since he is always getting into messes. This time would have been a good time to since then Phlox could have recaptured the creature sooner and get Trip back on track!
I so did not get any notification of these reviews, I'm sorry! Glad you liked it!

What a brilliant story. You really got me - I read the whole story in one sitting, feeling for Trip and so curious what it was. So the little creature can make sounds to (I am asuming Hoshi was upset by what the creature "say"). The ending with Phlox was great. I think the fahrtaug can cause Trip to avoid sick bay for a long time. Thanks for a funny, exiting story.
Thanks for the review, I'm glad you liked it. As I said above, I just now saw these *kicks internet*.

I love it! What a great story! I didn't expect that ending, either.
First, it seemed like you were going for a tension-building, scary-type homage to the Twilight Zone's episode that is mentioned in the story. Trip's obsession with catching the gremlin while realizing no one would believe him was well done, as well as funny. I don't know how many times I laughed out loud while I read this.
Then Hoshi accusing Trip of some ungentlemanly behavior -- LOL!
I honestly thought that when Phlox was called to the bridge, it was to sedate Trip and take him away.
You wrote a wonderfully grump!Trip, too. His thoughts about what was going on were very entertaining, and exactly what I'd expect him to be like in a situation like this.
Thanks for sharing this here.
I feel so sheepish, I had no idea anyone had reviewed this (I don't really go looking), no idea why.
Thanks for the kind words. It did start out dark but then took on a life of its own, one of the first things I wrote because I HAD TO, ie, I couldn't stop until it was done. Two days, I think.
I'm glad it made you laugh!
