The end is hopefully in a distant sight. It's Day 29, and I actually forgot to wish myself 'happy 43rd anniversary of becoming a Star Trek fan' (November 28, 1975; it says so in the first Star Trek book I ever bought). I am that involved in this story. Anyway... Day 29 total is 39,232 words. This is the first time I've actually done more than superficial editing on any NaNo story while actually writing it.
