That is one Hell of a way to meet T'Vel. Or her alter ego. Or both. The dysfunctional but oddly loving vibe of the Kestrel's crew really shines through here. They all have their issues and hang ups and clashing moments, but they also all hang onto one another and pull one another out of trouble and cling together, closing ranks when outside threats hit the stage.
Which makes any and every tragedy even worse for them. But also what makes them the best at what they do on the back of the beyond.
Heh. I think when you finish this tale, you will likely leave me with a massive inferiority complex.

Well, here we are planet side again and we’re back to Sebastian and Dexter, having a heart to heart. Or security officer to security officer. Or man to man. You know what, I’m not sure what kind of conversation it was other than a tense one from Sebastian’s end. He didn’t seem to think much of the big, bad planet but Dexter’s right in that he needs to pay attention to the criminal elements and stop being so boastful.
He needs to also stop being so sensitive about his past. Crap happens and it’s about time for Sebastian to heed the advice of his elders and start moving on. He seems to be doing that in some ways and in others he seems so be stubbornly stuck in the past. Whatever the case is, he needs to take some lessons from Dexter and learn to be a bit more humble.
Meanwhile, Noah and Molly are hitting up some sources for information on Cassie. Oh, Cassie AKA T’Vel, she’s so much fun when she’s drunk or sober. She’s a big fan of Noah’s bum apparently (HAHA, oh, Cutler he’s got Cassie/T’Vel after him and Harris flirting with him … player, player!) and has her own past issues to deal with. Noah is a bit unsettled with all the unusual stuff going on, but this is the ship he’s signed onto. He best get used to it.

Damaged in some ways is right. That was an interesting interlude there. I really hope we find out more about this science officer and her condition. To say it's unusual to see a Vulcan in that state is understatement.
I also liked the exchange with Templar. Whether he's willing to admit it or not, his experiences DO make him more useful at that job. Hopefully, he knows better than to throw out the baby with the bathwater. Really intriguing chapter all the way around.
Glad you found it intriguing. We have quite a bit to find out about a few of our intrepid crew members. Sebastian's colourful past being but one aspect. T'Vel and her condition being another. As you've discovered, there is more to it. And more still.

So, having acquainted the newbies with some of what I imagine are more salubrious haunts in the area they run into a very unconventional Vulcan science officer.
Gotta keep an eye on T'Vel now lol.
Salubrious indeed! Maybe not but probably places McGregor likes to haunt. Ha! Love that word. Gotta use it somehow in the same way you did. I can just imagine McGregor dripping it off his tongue in sarcasm! And yes T'Vel is unconventional but you'll have to read more to find out just exactly in what way unconventional.
