Thanks, KJ_A. I know...and I understand the reason for the "edge". Still...yes, I did feel the need to restore what I loved about her old self, without hurting her command abilities. I'm glad it seems to have worked. Yup--and I sure hope the pro authors will continue on that.... Don't worry. I won't have either of them retire, or anything. I have something in mind, but...that'd be giving plot lines away. Yeah, I just fixed that. The reason is that originally, it was a "long-range shuttle". But then, I realized that the Aventine had runabouts, so I re-wrote all that. That brief error was just something I'd missed in the revisions. My bad.
