quoting quadibloc over in that swamp of a thread.

I guess tomorrows strip is when Ed shares some information, and Captain Chang finds out that Belters can push asteroids around, and many of them happen to have devices for blasting away rock that stands between them and valuable minerals in asteroids. Thermonuclear devices.

He will be... chagrined

Too true
What does Chaing know about what happened to Harris?
Did they give him just enough of the whole picture to get killed?
Does he know about Reggie's nuke in the pants stunt?
Does he even know Harris was stopped by tools, not weapons.
Is what happened to Harris and that dumb kid one of those abuses?
Will he go after their "murderer", another kid.
Wouldn't it be a hoot if Ed out guns Chaing by casually planting Reggie's nuke on the table as in OK,  I see your infantry unit and raise you a tactical nuke. Fold?
Ed is a SMART poker player.

He should, if he did his due diligence. It was T-cast live.

That's what Ed's argument has been so far.

UW troops who elected not to defect probably said something during the debrief. That does not make it widely known and it's possible Chaing was not told.

So far a slow and stately boil but by golly it is building.

Question though, where are the other 3?

I know there are a lot of potential examples in the plaza, will we be seeing them all?

You dare to ask this question of Mr. Rollercoaster? Now, there's a jinx.

Although, things will work out for the best; I have faith in that. Just as we're now in suspense over the fate of Reggie and Babbette on their journey, very, very soon I expect Ceres will be exciting. I suspect Chang will defect at the end when his enlightened obedience to his orders fails to provoke the desired incident.

Rollercoaster?
May I respectfully submit Nicole listening to music all week?
Way better target.

If Chaing defects will one of the others whack him and we so get a Billy Budd moment?

You know I was thinking the exact same thing.  I mean what the hell!

On another note, who was the guy with the bow wrapped about his torso and why did he have a Robin Hood hat?  Would a bow and arrow be an effective weapon on Ceres?

I thought it was just two days. Maybe three. And she's in the solar corona, and things might deviate from prediction at any moment... so there's suspense.

It's unfortunate that the music of the future seems to have gone to silly rhymes, but one can't have everything.

Glenn do you mean the guy Nicole wrecked her shovel on back home? The flaky musician boyfriend. Well, he's a flake and he's a musician, I guess. So he dresses funny.

No I see him now, a couple strips back in EFT. As above I guess. And yeah they'd work wherever there's air. Oh hell, an actor? Peter Pan in Space?

Sometimes a guy in a Robin Hood suit is just a guy in a Robin Hood suit

DING.
Who are they talking to, and what are they promising them?

Some of us think it's unfortunate that too much music of the present isn't even that good.
