Thoroughly enjoyed this. An interesting take on what it's like from Zark's perspective, and watching the human observer slowly realize that this wasn't some kind of farce also tracked with my realizing it wouldn't be a farce. :)

I personally think that Teresa was very good at her old job, and someone realized she had that something that the Tin Can didn't have. Also, from the way she describes her data on the shuriken poison disappearing, I have to wonder: was it really lost? Or just moved?
I like seeing how she learns the ways and wherefores of Nerve Center -and how frustrated she is about how "clearance" keeps popping up. This is also a good look at the war with Spectra after Center Neptune was attacked.
Very enjoyable and realistic. And I feel sorry for Teresa in one aspect: we can yell at our TVs' when Zark comes on, but she has to supress it! :-P
Author's Response: Regarding the disappearing research data: ah, that's a matter for the sequel story. Which is coming along rather slowly, but it is moving. (It's been very stubborn, drat the thing.) When it's finished, I'll post it here. I can confirm that it will contain more information about why Teresa was reassigned and just what the heck she's doing in NCC. ;)

What an interesting perspective! I love the mission part in the latter half of this fic, and the POV of an outsider unfamiliar with how the team operates.
I have to say though, it doesn't seem like it's finished to me... I'd love to see more resolution of what Theresa is experiencing and the 'real' reason for her 'promotion'. Something just doesn't sit right with me about that whole thing...
I really enjoyed reading this.

Not many people can write 7-Zark-7 at all, much less do it in a serious manner. This story really excels at showing the "Tin Can" in a serious light without making fun of him. I really like how you have thought out the various functions that Zark performs as well as the unique aspects of his personality and 1-Rover-1. Then there is the interaction with the G-Force team, which we hear about through transmissions.
Using Teresa as an outside onlooker, so we can see the annoying little robot through her eyes was a good hook. As she learns about him, we do as well. When she starts to sympathize, so do we (and I still snort at 1-Rover-1 waking Teresa up! Hah!). The progression in character development and character understanding is excellent.
Not only is this a great story about Zark, but also about the support personnel that support him and G-Force. We don’t get so see much about them at all. Let’s face it, without all those faceless/nameless people, G-Force wouldn’t be able to function.
So many things make this one of my most favorite fics!
