I just wanted to check back in to inform you that I've started the sequel to this story!! It's called 'Starfleet Academy: Senior Year'. I know some of you already know about it, but I wanted to put it here for newer readers.

Again, thank you so so much for all of the support! I hope you enjoy the next installment of this story.
