This part of the plot was one of the earliest things I figured out for events in the story. This part written in outline notes likely back in Jan. or Feb. last year. When formally writing it, that took place last January and at the time of that I was re-watching Star Trek: Next Generation for the first time in a few years. I remember evaluating Skin of Evil from standpoint I don't think every other trekker would. When that came out TV tended to not show death as graphic as it is today. And to that I have no doubt Tasha Yars's death scene would have been more messy & bloody if produced today for television. I think simple can be just as effective and gory graphic. I'd like to think I've illustrated Floyd's death here with grace.

Also yes, I'm well aware of how graphic the death of Tanner was. ... Sorry, but I didn't see a way around that better effective. I wanted to have it very clear why his death would upset Amazon Annie.
