Like Sliders, it seems the Eagle keeps jumping out of the frying pan and into the fire. Each universe seems worse that the last - at least for the Federation.

But that's why dysopic fiction sells so well... People under pressure...

It's an interesting storytelling technique - having to deal with multiple versions of yourself and your friends, pretending to be someone who looks just like you without knowing what they know...

Thanks!! rbs

Author's Response: There is no denying that alternate universe stories are really quite popular at present. Much more so than I realized when I was envisioning this one. But it's also true that there is a lot of fun in getting to see all these different versions of the essential the same characters. Yes, that is certainly a key theme in this story. The idea of confronting people you know, maybe even yourself, but different because circumstances were different or they made different decisions in their lives.
