Another good installment, well worth the wait. I liked the interaction with the Tellarites and the ribbing of Reed. Also your description of Yridians was right on too. When I read that I thought to myself, sounds like the Yridians are involved, and sure enough thats what the aliens were.
They have no thumbs, which pretty much makes everything in this chapter utter bullshit. Am I the only one who sees this?
I am assuming you are refering to the Yridian firing the Widowmaker without having an opposible digit. Seems to me that a Yridian could figure out a way to fire such a weapon even without a thumb. Also the very fact that these Widowmakers are basically homemade (or made from basic and availible parts) they are easily modified and one could be constructed specifically for and by Yridians.
