Is it just me or does the shuttle suddenly look awfully empty?

I sort of assumed that Beryl would try to sit beside him so I guess Tempo ordered her to sit somewhere else. Apparently the soldiers are at the back behind Tempo but I thought that one of them where placed on Alex side. Fireblade is nowhere to be seen either.

This is the second or third time Alex doesn't seem to remember someone's name. Is that because of the length of time between seeing them (as when he was in the cell for days) or is hunger getting the better of him?

Or he's like me and has a terrible memory for names when they've only been used once or twice, but will remember a face forever.

That would seem (I almost sound like a Loroi) to be a bad handicap for a would-be diplomat on Alex's type of mission!

Alex was one of the lowest ranking members on the ship though, not a diplomat, and was brought along presumably for his tactical expertise, not his diplomacy.

Given that he does have a mouth on him, hence his assignment to damage control, it's presumable that he wasn't ever expected to do the talking.

"On the contrary, we are Extremely Eager to learn as much as we can about you and your people."

Why does Tempo's gaze seem ...almost sinful when she says that? :)

Oh... that's right she is pushing his buttons to see how he will react and is studying his emotional responses. Do you think Loroi have any skill a cold reading? Meaning discerning if someone is being honest in their replies by the consistency of their non-verbal emotional responses...

Or...could she be 'enjoying' this interchange with someone she cannot easily read with her telepathic abilities? She never knows what he is going to say next?

A new page! :)
Finally, Alex is asking some important questions. Tempos answers tells us more than just her words and one could wonder why they didn't tell him earlier or why they didn't ask him for that meetingpoint before.

hi hi

I suppose its possible that Tempo is worried that if Alex gives the coordinates, some zealous captain will go and try to blow up the relay tanker. But I suspect things are more complicated than that.

Or like me.
I remember names, I remember faces, but can't bring them together....

Cool page.
So the Loroi can do jumps to intercept, but cannot go anywhere else without logistic support?
Not much range then, those ships...
But you'd need diplomats anyway before making contact with Humaniti.

I bet Beryl wishes she was sitting next to him. She is a xenophile and 20 days of questions would barely satisfy her.

The green narrative text seems somehow ominous.

After all, the last time we saw it was page 2, and we know how that turned out.

So we moved another 5 lightyears away.... And the journey has just begun.

232 vs 217 lightyears makes a 15 lightyears distance to me. ;)
I wonder how often they had to jump to get there.

New page! :D

Darn, no "Leido Crossroads" to find on any of the maps Arioch provided us with.
But I'm guessing its somewhere between Naam and Azimol.

I can spot Beryl's face on the upper left of the page first picture? And at the end of the bay in the second pic (left of Alex's face).

Bad, Arioch, Bad.

Making us believe that Tempo got them to leave :P

That moment of happiness when you check on the forum and see "Page 106 discussion" on the very top. :shock: :arrow: :o :arrow: :mrgreen:

So its confirmed that Alex is going on a trip to meet the higher ups. And perhaps Loroi males!

I wonder how Emperor Greywind will react to this.

Presumably by whipping her hair back and forth. :P

Alternatively, with lots of paperwork and big archaic Trade words that not even other loroi understand. :mrgreen:

I notice that Tempo are rather cold to Alex in a matter contrary to their meeting on the bridge. Then she apologised to Alex about the treatment he had received, now when he been locked up in the brig for weeks since then she treat him coldly, insisting on being properly addressed herself. Alex have been treated as a prisoner rather then an ambassador so he have all rights to be a bit miffed. They could have made his stay a bit more bearable even considering the security concerns. There wasn't even furniture in that cell.

Ten jumps is a significant distance; it's more than 50 light years, and greater than the width of Human territory. The Charred Steppes is only about 4-6 jumps across in most places, and the distance from Leido to Seren is about 7 jumps, a journey estimated to take 20 days.

Range in Newtonian space travel is not so much about how far you go but about how much fuel and supplies you are expending to get there. A ship like the Bellarmine can easily travel 10 jumps and back if all it is doing is making course corrections during system transits between jump points. For a military fleet to do the same, presumably fighting along the way, is more of a challenge. For SG51 at Naam, after 3 days of fighting and low on fuel, going 10 jumps farther away from base without resupply was simply not an option. Now at Leido, traveling 13 jumps (Naam is 3 jumps from Leido) through enemy-held territory would be a challenge under normal circumstances, but the circumstances are certainly not normal; there is evidently an Umiak offensive underway.

I can easily buy Loroi leadership deciding it's better to miss this contact opportunity but prepare for a future one by learning from a safe Alex, rather than trying to get him to the rendezvous now and getting him and a bunch of ships potentially killed in the process.
