So the orion pirates survived after all... And no doubt will be put to more mischief. Alas - they might have become the minions of someone a bit more competant then they were.
Lar'rogos doesn't have to invent nightmares - appreantly he's lived them.
Something on the other side of a subspace portal.. that sounds tesseract unhealthy..
And a mysterious flying castle (complete with a Baron) to top it off... Now this is starting to get into some weird goodness..

I've read from chapter 1-9. Spent about 2 hours up last night reading a couple of chapters, then realised the time and had to get off to sleep. Excellent story. Still have no idea what is exactly going on, which certainly grips the reader more. Yet again you seem to have brought out a fantastic story.
I'm glad the story pulled you in so effectively, and I apologize for the sleep deprivation! ;-)

Seems like whatever is down there is causing chaos at the biochemical level as well...and it's nice to see this side of Captain Sandhurst.
I'm glad you brought up the point about personal weapon systems becoming so light and easy to use that it feels like a kid's toy. This is a blessing on one hand, but can be dangerous if an actual kid can wield it or if the user is reacting reflexively on instinct. Technology enables us to do so much but also increases our vulnerability to human error. Especially with something that suggests 'pure carnage'!
Sandhurst does have a compassionate side, he's simply been far too busy recently to let it show much. And the guns in the hands of the Orions are big, heavy, clunky, and undeniably dangerous. Thanks for the review!

Ooh intriguing. Who is this Baron and how did he have the power to save the ahmet and his men from their ship?
Really good job portaying Sandhurst helping Shanthi.
Looking forward to seeing where all of this is going.
The Baron... well, let's just say, he's complicated.
As for Sandhurst and Shanthi, sometimes there's nothing you can say to ease a person's pain. Sometimes all you can do is just be there for them.
Thanks for the review!

Good stuff! Sandhurst's reaction to Shanthi's grief was extremely well-done; the backstory on Pava, as well, and the haunting line he was asked.
I enjoyed being able to portray Sandhurst's empathy and compassion, and Pava's flashback was as disturbing to write as it was to read.
