Nice snipe hunt.. I liked Tazla working to make inroads with Deen. The first job of the XO - get to know the crew and keep an open line of communication.
I also appreciated the descriptions of the ship.
Once I catch back up with this story I'll work my way back to the beginning - and hopefully find out why Eagle is chronically understaffed.
Author's Response: Thanks. One of the reasons that make this interesting is that Deen and Star have never been particularly close in this series, partly because Deen is very close to the captain, his personal friend and confidant, while Star, even though the first officer, has played a secondary role. This dynamic is changing a bit in Quantum Divergence. There is no big secret regarding Eagle being understaffed. It's a consequence of the war, during which Eagle has seen, not so much casualties, but a lot of her crew being reassigned to meet fleet-wide personnel shortages.
