Thank you, John (CorporalCaptain)!
Really nice of you to comment! I think you're right about that plot hole!
Glad you liked T'Noshi! Christin Woods is an excellent actress!
Regarding your question about the spoiler, I have no definitive answer. We see this happen, and we're each to draw our own conclusion about the motivation. Me, I think it's more of a combination of things that lead to Grigory's decision.
Thanks again for the feedback! Stay tuned for next month's release!
