No kidding about that tension here. You could cut it with a laser scalpel.
Thank you!

The scene with Bouvier made me laugh out loud. Is that lady a first rate bitch or what?
The answer would be a resounding yes.

The comm black out was just what this story needed to take it to the next level. Now Akinola and Franklin are truly on their own and in a position in which they simply have to trust and depend on each other.

You can't make up this kinda drama ... Well, I guess you have.
I figured a communications black out would provide a sense of isolation and uncertainty for our protagonists, particularly when Franklin is still uncertain regarding the scope of her orders and Akinola remains mostly in the dark. Glad you like it thus far.

Akinola tends to stay in trouble. No point adding to his woes.

I'm really liking Franklin. Considering the situation, she's being very tactful. Akinola may not like being in the dark, but he's a professional.
I hoped that Franklin would come across likeable. She's a decent person and a good C.O. Her command style is different from Akinola's but she respects his experience and is reluctant to pull the 'tactical superiority' line on him. Besides, it probably wouldn't do her any good.

The 'shroom may not like three more ships intercepting it, either.
Hmmm. We shall see soon enough.
