In this Chapter we open with Tess alone on a dark road...trying to make her way undetected back to the Provenance.
She appeared overwhelmed by the deed. But the deed needed to be done. She found solace in this.
Once back aboard the Provenance, they all meet in the Captain conference room. Aslan is missing. Why?
What is racing across High Commander Mustafa's mind?
We already know what Tess is thinking and what she wants to do...right?
So the cover story will be dirty cops, drug mules, and kilos of cocaine. You think the FBI will buy their story?
Well...this is "some getting used to as they say in the south." Jeff is recent history. Tess is the new Cruise Director. Your thoughts.
So now we find ourselves with Commander Aslan headed to the Blackstar Drone Center on Deck 13.
What he saw surprised him. We are as well. What about you?
So this is Insurance. I wonder what
Double Indemnity' looks like?
Why did Commander Quasar become weak at his knees?
What do you think about Aslan words of encouragement to Tess? "--We execute our orders...not question them."
Even Quasar had words of wisdom. Were you impressed?
Now, this is a twist. The FBI is using the rare chikungunya virus story to quarantine the Provenance. Fate does have a sense of irony. Or maybe...just maybe, this is Karma.
Aslan was connecting the dots. He warned everyone that the Americans were sending a warship. Genesis Intelligence called shortly thereafter and confirmed his fears and more.
Is this a reason to assemble all 1,200 soldiers and possibly blow their cover?
