Executive Offices, Stonozka, Titan "No." The Supreme Emperor's decision was final. "This is a memetic issue that can only be fought memetically," Noelle Sharudi insisted as she always did: by merely being present and yet apart, clinically detached from her own body. A marionette...

Scolopendran Embassy, Devras “A few of ours got hurt, ma’am,” a shorter blue-and-black-uniformed woman, brown-haired and angle-faced, strode quickly to keep up with her taller, fuzzier, and similarly uniformed superior, “but, as the press honestly said, nothing too severe.” “And how did ours show?”...

Kit almost twitched his batwing ears before a lifetime of being brought up by il padre paranoico kicked in and he consciously suppressed any indication of having noticed anything. This bought him some time to figure out what, exactly, he had noticed as he strode through the well-appointed cubicle fa...

"So we've got an idealist." Aston permitted himself a lopsided grin, with his lips sealed as per the usual manner of his countrymen. "Stereotypically, then, you've called in the expert on those. If that's a factor, then there's the question of whether he believes in the State or the S...

Aston nodded, rubbing his chin. "Yes, the evidence seems relatively incontrovertible, although I'm thinking that someone who can get their hands on a mindraper could possibly spoof the sensors. We should check again for dogs that aren't barking; if everyone else is accounted for, then we can re...

Agent Jamsheed simply followed at a polite distance and listened to the usual spacer flight briefing. The details were slightly different, because of course they would be, but the generalities of space travel are functionally universal: thinsuits, rapid-don oversuits, damage control equipment, so on...

The theme of 'worryingly' played out throughout her neat little cubicle in the Executive Apartments, isolated from the rest by double-thick sound-isolating walls and a secu...

-Acknowledged. Weber out.- With the needs of command and communication out of the way, the admiral resigned herself to laying in her rack until her brain could slow back down enough so she could return to sleep. The 'accident' had been no such thing and the mass-murderer responsible could be hiding...

Stonozka Caves of Steel, Titan “So you’re saying ‘it’s a good idea,’ then?” She nodded, her cream-colored hair bobbing as it framed her olive-skinned face. “We already know from the declassified WANCC studies that the risks—well, at least the systemic ones—are negligible. Really, now that the Unive...

-I'll have the sensor network set up, then. We're already on a persistent air patrol mission, so this will just require us to look down as well as up. We'll put the data and the management functions in an isolated server we can share with you--this will reduce decision-loop and coordination time as...

Marishiten It was a good thing that Weber slept lightly. She didn't bother opening her eyes when the Supercarrier gently buzzed her awake and told her she had a call; she just remained on her side in her rack and took the call in her head. If the Chairwoman was expecting any sort of video link, she...

'Doctor' Fulan al-Fulani, who was nothing of the sort, respectfully bowed in the short Scolopendran fashion towards anyone he had to and nondescriptly sauntered away behind the Imperatrice and the Queen. It looked and sounded as though the mission had been accomplished--at least this part--though th...

AiQien's shriek caused al-Fulani, still at that point leaning against the door frame, to roll his weight around his shoulder and spin around behind the door frame. This put him in a perfect place to overhear what was going on, so he eavesdropped as was only meet and proper for anyone in his current ...

As much as his sense of the theatric made him want to speak at times, al-Fulani's profession centered more around listening. So he listened. He followed the young woman around and simply listened respectfully, with his hands loosely folded in front of him. Similarly, he kept his mind open, storing t...

al-Fulani shrugged himself off the doorframe he'd been nonchalantly leaning against and approached the young kitsune. He had to remind himself to take his hands out of the pockets of his coat; old habits died hard. "Thank you, Mister Greizon." After a short bow in the usual Scolopendran fa...

It was a known risk, of course, and it confirmed many suspicions--useful in the immediate hindsight--but he'd have to double-check the null-wall and make sure it was...
