Ah yes, old ships and their captains are not always welcomed with open arms, as other UT COs can attest.
And the alien ship doesn't seem to be going anywhere for a while, so one could say the stage is set.
Sorry to say there's going to be a lengthy delay before the next chapter goes up. I have a number of life things to take care of over the next few weeks. But I'll try my best to minimize the lag time.
