I’m glad Beaumont surrendered when she did. Having done all she could already, her death would have been a meaningless gesture.
Proudfoot’s a complicated man. He obviously feels strongly enough about his course of action that he’s willing to kill a former comrade-in-arms in cold blood… well, cold vacuum, anyway.
Teague’s played the only card available to him by running and hiding in the gas giant. Somehow, though, I don’t think he’s going to do anything safe or predictable, considering the odds stacked against him.

Teague’s got the Pathfinder out of the frying pan, but if Proudfoot can get Achilles online, the crew will have landed right in the fire. Beaumont’s become the bee in Proudfoot’s bonnet, and here’s hoping she can find an EVA suit in time… and with her cortical processor offline, she might not even have the wherewithal to realize she needs one.

Oh, dear... Beaumont's emotional control has been stripped away with the deacctivation of her implant... and now she has free reign to run amok aboard Vanguard.
Heaven help anyone who gets in her way!
Terrific action sequence, by the way, nicely crafted with fluid prose.

Well… that was a sobering tactical assessment. Pathfinder’s boxed in and with Beaumont trapped with Proudfoot and his separatists, there’s no easy way out that won’t result in casualties of some kind.
I guess that’s why they pay Starfleet captains the big bucks!
