They really should have kept a closer eye on Bun Bun, or even considered taking him out a long time ago... On another note, what does Oasis mean, ''it's only fair''? Wouldn't she have helped save them either way? (Assuming she could).

I keep forgetting they have the XT-34. But apparently no time. Indeed, Torg, what do they do?

I think her new-found independence just doesn't want hey to acquiesce immediately.

Of late, Bun bun has been seeming more like a team player. He had his own agenda, but so did the team, and for awhile, they coincided.

So does Riff figure the incoming missiles, and subsequent fiery re-entry of all the little pieces, won't sufficiently scrub the DFA data?

And what does Bun-Bun plan to do? Gwynn seems to think he's going to stay in space. I doubt Bun-Bun would stay long in a tiny shuttle, though I'm not sure if that thing is land-able.

Can :oasis: actually burn anything? I thought the fire gun had been removed from her satellite in preparation for installing the DFA.

With real orbital physics, only some of the little pieces will re-enter. Most of them (depending on the orbital height, and the delta-v the average piece recieve from the explosion) will stay in space, being a hazard for satelites.

LOVE Gwynn's outfit. Poor girl. Don't forget your other cappy captain then since bunbun ditched you!

I guess Bunbun is (supposedly) gonna be the only one left with a function DFA. With a functional space ship and crew. Wonder where he'll end up!

(I can totally see Pete leaving the story like that if he was indeed wrapping things up after the wonderful 20 years!)

Point. (Like the not-Chinese satellite hC blew up already.)

So some pieces will exit the explosion in a down/rearward direction, and those will probably spiral in and burn on re-entry. Much of it will stay in space. But I would still think being blown into itty-bitty pieces and then sprayed throughout orbital space would make the data fairly hard to recover. Maybe if the missile wasn't bang-y enough and it didn't destroy the (disks? flash storage?) holding the data? Still, you'd have to come into orbit and find it, which would be finding a needle in a VERY big haystack.

I think that was just a bit of snark in reaction to Riff saying launching her satellite was something that they did not have time for - and then turning around and asking her to use the capabilities granted by that satellite launch...

I guess we're about to find out whether Dr. Montgomery re-installed it as part of putting her back together or not...

It's not clear who knew that ability was ever removed.
