I remember this story. I'm curious to know why you've decided to revise it.
I decided to revise it because I wasn't pleased with the original end result. I thought the first stab at this story was too bloated. I also decided to change some of the characters, chiefly in the Monarch subplot (though I do give a shout out to that subplot in the opener). And to alter the ending and the fates of several characters due to extenuating circumstances in the overall UT universe. Once that happened, I think it lessened the impact of the original story and opened the door for me to go back in and tighten it up.
Hopefully this rewrite won't take too long and I can then return to "Hero of the Federation" and finish that.
