I can definitely see this being a potential outcome given the assumptions in the story. I really like how you've put the story together. Thanks for sharing.
Thanks very much! I'm glad you enjoyed it. That is such a thought-provoking episode.

Very, very well written. Interesting take on the issues brought up by the rescue as well.
Thanks very much! I'm glad it was thought-provoking. Neither Jonathan nor I had any good answers, just lingering questions.

That was a touching and well-thought out story. Would they have done what they did if they had known? Tough question to answer, and all those years later having it come back when Narra asks for Jon's help.
Very deft mixing of angst and hope, and a lovely portrayal of Jon and Malcolm's relationship 20 years later.

I like stories that revisit "Detention" and the Tandarans. Between that episode, "2D2N," and "Desert Crossing," there are so many interesting ways you can pursue the consequences of Jon's actions. This was a very enjoyable story. Archer and Reed's relationship was there naturally, quietly. You could tell they really cared for one another. I liked the reflectiveness of this piece.
Thanks very much! I'm very glad you enjoyed it and appreciate hearing that it read as I hoped it would. It did seem clear that the Tandaran/Suliban situation wasn't stable and that something had to happen with them at some point. In my mind, it tied in with what might have happened with the Cabal after the end of the Temporal Cold War when they'd no longer (presumeably) have access to their source of genetic modifications. There were a lot of ways it could go, but I really just wanted to show a glimpse of the effect the situation had on Jonathan. Reflectiveness is a good word - thank you.

Very interesting read on the effects of ARcher's decision to help the Suliban. i applaud you in gathering thoughts from this perspective, and then couragaeoulsy letting us see Archer's second guessing himselft on that decision.
And the relationship with Reed is told well, with his support and love of Archer at just the right touch for their personalities, yet being sweet as well.
Now we just need to have the rest of the story!
Thanks very much. I'm glad you enjoyed it; it was interesting to write their developing relationship and try to show how much Jon valued his discussions with Malcolm even before they were together. And I was fascinated by how the Tandaran arc threaded through several episodes and was curious about what might have happened later. Jon was uncertain about the chances for the escaped Suliban at the end of Detained, and he has a habit of second-guessing himself sometimes.
