Seriously. A shake and a candy bar. But anyway, McGregor points out the most delightful flaw of a villain gloating while trying to kill everyone -- you remove any incentive for the person you're threatening to do what you want. I suppose it ties into the same reason why physical torture is so ineffective.
Anyway, it's delightful. I love the Starbase's scrambling and disbelief. I love the half-resignation on Dexter's part. I love a lot of things. Especially McGregor and his reckless-not-reckless ass kicking moves here.

Whew, an action packed chapter here as McGregor faces down T’Hos, man to man. But dude, he really has some stones. It’s great though that you showed what was going on in the starbase because, frankly, I was beginning to wonder what the thought was happening. But McGregor triggering the self-destruct finally have the guys a clue that, hey, the ship is in trouble and in need of some major assistance. It’s about time for someone to start taking McGregor seriously and it’s good to see the starbase personnel doing that, despite Commodore Georgetown (who I imagine with a white goatee and a monacle) thinking it was all some sort of prank.
Back on the ship, McGregor’s ploy works in getting T’Hos off but instead of him going alone he takes Harris with him (given credence to the Orion girl thing) and when she goes, and he goes, McGregor dashes off. I thought he was heading for some sort of emergency override he built into the ship but instead he heads to an escape pod?
Oh man, it seems like the self-destruct is real but there’s no way McGregor blows up his own ship, right? Right? Right.
I’m almost certain of it.
In fact, pretty sure.

That is a kind of a cliffhanger for which people get killed. Just a kindly friendly observation... For now. ;-)
LOL! Anna, I have to keep you hooked and wanting to come back for more. Please keep it kind and friendly as I think I'd fear crossing you more than McGregor! ;)

Oh my God! Holy crap, McGregor! Seriously, some part of me expects a milkshake and a candy bar to drop out of a replicator slot somewhere, but this was still a fun chapter. I imagine he has to have some reason for running off, right?
Now why didn't I think of that! That would have been cool! Wait I've seen that somewhere before ... smeg where was that?!
