ART: Embedded in the fic.
Notes: First, enormous thanks go to [livejournal.com profile] amiss for the amazing beta job -- you made this so much better and I am so much more satisfied with it. Many thanks also to [livejournal.com profile] neth_dugan for the wonderful artwork!

This is a sequel to Start Infinity Again. Reading that would definitely help, but I hope it's not necessary. What you basically need to know is that Jim survived Generations, got back together with Spock, fell into the Reboot universe with him, and decided to go to New Vulcan with him at the end of STXI. As a legacy of his time in the Nexus, he has a latent empathic talent, as well as a sort of universe sense, being able to detect universe shifts. He also got a doctorate in starship engineering, just for something to do.

Thanks also go to [livejournal.com profile] thyla_bigbang, for running such a fun bang and giving me the incentive to get this thing finished and posted!
