The moment I read Mutara Nebula, the alien shipmaster's voice from STIII jumped into my head "MUTARA???"

I actually read and commented on this one yesterday, but for some reason it appears the comment didn't take.

I really enjoyed the combat scene onboard the Bluefin - and the introduction of this Solly Brin and especially the characturization of Akinola. It appears this alt-Star is definitely a Dark Star...

Really a fun, lively fight scene. 

Thanks!! rbs

Author's Response: Thanks for the kind words. A lot of credit in this story goes to creators of these characters such as The Lone Redshirt, the writer of the excellent Tales of the Bluefin series which includes the big red Orion.

That was quite the out-of-the-box thought process from Owens. Rather than just leaving the ship disabled, he staged a thrilling tactical assault (complete with PAVA) on the ship, and then had the balls to negotiate with the vessel's beaten captain?

That's bold. Ballsey. I like it ... he's trying to make sure there's no more bloodshed, no more loss of life. Star is a loose cannon it seems and Owens is trying to keep things from getting out of hand ... I question whether Sandhurst and the rest will give him too much slack, thoough. They already don't trust him. 


Author's Response: It was a ballsy move, wasn't it? I don't think the prime-Michael Owens would have made such a call. Hell, he would probably never found himself in such a situation to be begin with. And yes, trust is in short supply here.
