Sebastian has such a chip on his shoulder. For the life of me I cannot remember why. But the highlight of the chapter, to me, is -- are we surprised? -- McGregor. I love his flirting with Jex. And even though I shouldn't find it funny, I love what he pulled on the counselor. And finally, I love the trailing bits of characterization that may or may not lead somewhere but certainly get one chewing on his personality.
Someday I will have to pry a detailed backstory out of you.

Bedding in indeed! Ah, the many McGregor puns, phrases, and innuendoes here are priceless. He’s coming on strong to Jex which makes me want to ship them.
So I’m totally going to ship them, ranks be damned! Jex is a Trill anyway so it’s not so creepy as it would be if she were just some fresh faced thing straight out of the Academy. McGregor an Jex, FTW. Team M/J (not related to Michael Jackson) is now taking on passengers.
Cutler and Templar are both reacting to McGregor’s brand of insanity differently, but both reactions are expected in some form. Cutler seems a bit shaken by McGregor’s behavior, probably completely surprising him considering everything the Academy teaches. Templar is a stubborn type, unhappy with the flippancy and sure enough has himself a bit of a past as McGregor hints to Gordon.
Ah, Gordon. The ever trustworthy and reliable barkeep. The interplay between the two in the nearly empty bar was good, Gordon pretty much keeping McGregor in check. He seems to have a good head on his shoulders which is a good thing for the rest of his crew, as McGregor seems to need a bit guidance every now and then from outside sources. Oh, things are gonna get fun … and Dr. Healy getting sold to Orion pirates was LOL worthy.

Hmmmmmm. Lots of interesting little background nuggets thrown into this one that raise lots of questions. I thoroughly enjoy how you parse out small details all along the way without ever interrupting the flow of the action and dialogue.
Thanks, I had to work on it a lot as I wanted to ground the ship on which they worked but didn't want to just list out the features of the ship. So I had to work in the details as well as work in details about the characters. This is among the first parts of the story that I wrote and secreted over as I mulled over the characters and their histories. I think this one is where a lot of it began.

Well, McGregor's eccentric to say the least. Quite enjoyable to read even if he is a madman lol. I've enjoyed what must have been the most thorough tor of a ship ever, and love the idea that there's a wanted muderer with an inside man waiting to stir things up later on.
Thanks millions for the review. Yes McGregor is eccentric - you're so polite! Though madman is maybe not as flattering - but possibly more accurate! Hee hee. Glad you're enjoying the ride. And yes our murderer had schemes up his sleeves - they'll just take a while to pan out. [But that gives you time to decipher who think might be the inside man!] McGregor too has his own schemes though - hunt T'Hos down and reap his revenge. Either way, things are definitely going to be stirred up. Again, much thanks for the review and reading.

LOL! Your McGregor is coming across as being a bit like Captain Ahab, though with some decided crazy that's more like bipolar. Interesting tidbit there about Templar that will be something to chew on in later chapters.
Captain Ahab would be a good comparison, I think. Though obviously, not so good for the rest of his crew. LOL! And Templar's past will have a bearing in the story for some. Thanks again, for reading and commenting.
