Hi David,
I just saw Ren's new model page. With all respect to your modelling skills, I think you should have another look on elbows. Right now it looks as if you took a plastic tube and bend it hard at one spot. Especially Ren's right elbow looks weird to me. Real elbows look a little bit different I think, although I can't put my finger on exactly where and how.

I was holding off from commenting on the Ren Takagi model until I'd seen her in some scenes in the comic, but I found something "off" about her model's proportions generally, and I spotted her "bent tube" elbows too. Kari has the same elbows.

Now that is a fairly stunning opening image, I am thinking of Buckminster buildings and domes, VR, tesselations, landscape as well as the shape of a skin placed over an avatar. Very good "take another look" graphic cover.

Yep, this is very interesting. Are we going into Sarah's mind? That can be interesting :)
It's just that the perfectly good mystery (who betrayed) is going to be resolved too fast. Unless there is a second bottom to it?

I had forgotten that Daniel's left arm was hurt badly enough when he was shot in chapter 11 for him to get a class D Aug for his arm.

Someone is bound to challenge the quarantine...

So Whisper knows what Kari found to recognize similarity to Sarah.

I wonder sometimes in there's a stealth multi-lingual punning shout-out in the Souri Collective. The French word "souris" means "mouse" or "mice", and the mice secretly ran everything in Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy...

Something is amiss...

Kari sounds as if she didn't know about the quarantine.
If she knew, she shouldn't be that surprised that there is a fleet orbiting the moon rather than the planet - this adds security that no one accidentally (or not) breaks the quarantine.

On the other hand, I understand news may travel slower in space, but not that much slower! Especially if you work for the military, you would know that your capital planet is inaccessible :P

Unless there is no real quarantine, just a sell story for the inhabitants. For example, means for the pirates to control the plant and all the traffic.
But then world about that would spread out too in a couple of months I image...

So, there must be some third option?

Narrow-width, minimum strength... and let's hope whoever responds uses the same transmission settings ;)
