OH I love your characterization of McCoy, and I'm looking forward to your take on Starfleet Academy. I note you've gone for a model that's closer to University than boot camp.
Thank you!! And yeah, I felt like it would flow better if I was able to write from experience (and I have not experienced boot camp, so...) and plus, I like going the route that Starfleet is largely made up of scholars rather than soldiers.
I'm working on hybridizing the approaches based on reading a whole bunch of stuff about Annapolis (and really wishing they'd kept terms like Midshipman and Plebe.)
Oh nice!!! (And yea, those are some pretty stellar terms!)
