Welcome to Chapter Eight! Are you feeling a sense of deja-vu here? If you are, it’s because I’ve been a naughty little writer and have pulled the exact same trick that I did at the beginning of Chapter Seven– I’m messing around with the timeline of events. I’ve bumped you back in time a bit, so you’re going to have to be patient and wait for things down here in the underground on the planet to catch up with what’s happening on the ship. Trust me. ;-) Meanwhile, we pick up more or less where we left off at the end of Chapter Six.

Also, new blog post below!
