Plenty of things. But let’s start with the more immediate threat.
And Quesix was worried about the Markaan. Ha! How about a psychopathic killer who has knowledge and abilities beyond comprehension? My current comprehension. Presumably not my prior knowledge.
Friend? Enemy? Stranger? Compatriot?………..Mentor or Student? Why is it that I don’t have my memories yet others were able to keep theirs? It can’t be the ability to compartmentalize one’s brain to hide who we are. The scientists obviously know that trick because it’s standard teaching for the నీడ ప్రజలు. Those same scientists who don’t reveal how memories…………….ah…..nevermind. Stupid scientists.
Thinking back to Earth2 and all the stasis chambers, and the fortunate timing of Alder’s vision. Was it Quesix who postulated “why don’t we just open the rest of the chambers? How can you care so little about others of your race?” Stupid scientist.
So much of this still makes no sense to me. Why so long? Why us?
