All the different plots in the recent stories are all ways of turning up the volume and the tempo leading up to the final story.
As the writing progresses, I'll be giving little clues here and there. First off, the story will be primarily from several different points of view: the crew of the Lambda Paz
, the crew of the Seventh Fleet flagship USS Constantinople
, Yelgrun and his lackeys, and a Cardassian gul, who led an enemy fleet in an earlier story, on the side of not taking up arms against his own government until various circumstances persuade him to defect.
