Review – We Meet Again
We Meet Again Background
In canon, there is virtually nothing shown about anyone’s recovery from Tucker’s untimely demise.
It is as if it never mattered in the first place.
In response to a Star Trek fan fiction prompt about entertainment, I decided to go dark and most decidedly not fluffy.
The story begins with Travis feeling a little lost. Very briefly, it is mentioned that the final movie night has been held on the NX-01 prior to its being decommissioned, and that the film chosen by Chip was the first James Bond movie, Dr. No.
He has little to do or think about, and his family is on the freighter, anyway. With no one to visit and just a little bit doubtful as to whether Captain Archer wants him back for the DC-1500 USS Zefram Cochrane, Travis goes to a nearby station and visits a ticket agent. He gives her an undisclosed amount of cash and just asks, “Where can this take me?” She gives him a few options and he chooses Philadelphia.
I did not choose Philly for any particular reason. I just like the city (I lived outside it for a few years as a child) and it is a readily recognizable place which would still exist during that time period. But Travis has no ties to it whatsoever. For him, it’s just a means of getting away from it all.

The story is rated K.
I could probably have spent more time on this short story, particularly with what Travis does in the City of Brotherly Love.
Otherwise, the experience feels somewhat rushed. But when he returns to Starfleet, the phrase, of course, is: We Meet Again, Mister Bond.
