Story Notes:

Jean-Luc Picard created a Round Robin about this event, and it inspired me to write about a pregnant widow, for this attack is a lot like 9/11 and there were several pregnant widows from that attack.

And then Gina just kind of took on a life of her own.

Many, many thanks to JLP for the idea and the encouragement.
