get trapped in RL and come back to this! what have you done with the place!?!?!?!?!
sorry. I really really love this chapter. I am shocked and pleased to find Maren more "tactically efficient" than I thought. wowza!
I am worried about Lakwa. I guess I don't trust politicians. I confess I don't rate diplomats much higher than politicians or lawyers. I do believe a lot of all of the above begin their careers wishing to make real and positive change. The systems they have to work within are usually too corrupted for most except the most fiercely devoted to those ideals to resist. Sorry about the tangent. In other words, don't let Lakwa and Admiral whatshisface get a meeting . . . (sorry - had a brain fart - I meant Beckley of course . . .)
A riproaring chapter Kes7! Thank you!
Oh! AND Omega ???? Thank goodness Malik doesn't have any real operating leverage . . . yeeeeeesh!!!!!!
