Loving the juxtaposition in this chapter. The oldest (former) member of the crew and the youngest. These people should have practically nothing in common and yet their conversation really flows nicely.
I hope Hopper comes out of this okay. Sacrificing somebody this young, just starting out on her adventure feels cruel.
Also really enjoyed the Irons' reasoning for bringing Dolphin on board. Not many captains would admit to that but I can totally see this kinda stuff happening and people just going for their gut instincts on a new crewmember.
Glad you really liked this - there will be more with Irons and Hopper. Jennifer's youth and vulnerability was one of several reasons Dolphin recruited her for this mission. Irons is perfectly capable of flying the shuttle by herself and not putting another crewmember at risk.
