Looking forward to seeing Pava's up close and personal interaction with the Voranti. It is, perhaps, too much to hope that it might end "peacefully". On the other hand, given their fierce determination, they could be a valuable ally if they could be convinced that they were duped and come to trust the "real" Star Fleeters.
And, I'm very happy to see what's happening with Pell back at the station. Grim does not begin to describe what you have presented here.
As always, looking forward to more, and thanks for this installment.
