I want to apologize to all those following this story for the fact it's been nearly a full year since I last updated. I never intended for that. I was hit by a combo of writer's block and distracted by my various other fics. I have begun an update and wanted to thank everyone for being patient and hoping that when I do get this story going again, it'll be more than worth the wait. Again, thank you all very much for your patience and wanted to get this out to let you all be sure that I haven't abandoned this by any means.
I was also pausing to do a few readings for a bit more "research" on the tale. That includes Greg Cox's great trilogy of novels that tells of Khan's rise, his rule and his exile as well. Also, Scott Tipton's fantastic comic mini-series "Ruling in Hell" which also details Khan's exile and how he changed from the noble warrior of "Space Seed" to the madman of the second film. I am using those as templates but keep in mind that in this story, Khan's exile isn't as long and thus he won't be quite as obsessive for vengeance above all else. So don't expect a retelling of Star Trek II (and recently checking out the Blu-Ray of it helped inspire too) as I'll also naturally be working the Colonials into this too.
So again, thank you all for your patience and hope to have it rewarded soon. Thanks.
