''[[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/5698125/1/However-Improbable However Improbable]]'' is a {{Crossover}} between the Literature/SherlockHolmes canon and ''Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries'', by [[http://www.fanfiction.net/u/1464384/KCS KCS]].

''An ancestor of mine maintained that if you eliminate the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth." - Captain Spock, ST:VI; original quote Sherlock Holmes, SIGN. Two universes, two worlds, one link threatening them both.''

It's a rambling epic largely about ThePowerOfFriendship. TheReveal of the villain should not surprise Sherlockian readers; however, there ''is'' a chilling twist to his character that basically takes him UpToEleven.
