Re: *SPOILER QUESTION* for Greater than the Sum
^^Yeah, but have you ever heard of a viable human baby being born six or seven months premature?
We don't know how long Destiny
spans; as we keep being reminded, we haven't read the outlines, much less the manuscripts.
A novel (of which Destiny
is three, which gives it even more room to play with) spanning several months, or even an entire year, is not unprecedented: see Articles of the Federation
or Rising Son
or (IIRC) Fire Ship
