Wow that's a great plot twist. I love it when bullies get their backside's handed to them so thank you for that!
Do you have any more to flesh this out? Maybe some kind of next chapter where the Captain's beam out snags his attacker instead, so now they have captured a ship? I'd bet they're smart enough to keep Bril on as a slave to pilot for them at fangpoint... Anyway, just an idea for a way to extend your story and turn it around all the way.
Eric I'm just amazed at this novella! How can you get that truly published my friend?
You have inspired me to connect the dots between my two planned series' of stories with some of the elements of Moon Duty. I adore your characters interactions and your species interactions. Your descriptions of starfighter pilot jargon and combat maneuvers is the very best I've ever read. I only hope to get mine up to this good!
Publish this series as a novel! Please!
