Isn't everyone in their right mind in the collective galaxy already out for MA blood? Everyone's internal tricorders are locked and set to identify Malign signatures.* So why should that matter to the Malign? I've said it again and again. I think the Malign has shown, for the most part, that they are not afraid of reprisals.

Let's not get it twisted. Albrecht was the one scorned. He is the only one with a few bones to pick with the universe at large. And he didn't give aratsass who else got angry. The galaxy isn't scorned. Albrecht won that trophy for the malign household centuries ago.

*Incidentally. the technology displayed in the Torch series where the Scraggs were tracking Lars and Berry should be standard issue on every RMN officer. A tricorder of sorts. I don't think the GA has any MA DNA. But the device can be set to identify non strains of normal DNA.

Does Simoes himself represent any MA DNA? Or at least the MA signature, with over the top enhancements?

A century later the Malign can go back to the future, now.

The problem with that theory. They know the Detweilers still exist & Beowulf will be out for MA blood after 43 million civilian deaths.

No Most SL people do not think The MA exists

it has only been a few months since Kingsford CNO SLN has even considered MA Moles -

Nov/Dec 1922PD and 10th Fleet
has not even started the MESA investigation

Just a question... Is that 43 million figure Beowulf alone, or does it include the Yawatta strike?

the figure is a SPOILER introduced into a NON SPOILER thread without warning by Nimitz. So if you really want an answer (aren't you waiting for the print version?) it is below. It is also a SPOILER and this is my WARNING. :)
























Uncompromising Honor wrote:“The Yawata Strike, carried out—we believe—by the Alignment, killed eight million people, including the total population of the city of Yawata, where ninety percent of my own family lived. The SLN was prepared to murder six million more in Hypatia. And two weeks ago, the SLN attacked Beowulf—the oldest extrasolar colony in the galaxy, the star system which led the fight to save this star system’s population from extinction after old Earth’s Final War, the star system which sponsored the Solarian League’s Constitution. And in the course of that attack, over forty-three million civilian citizens of Beowulf were killed.”

Thank you. Spoilers don't bother me at all. In fact for myself I think they are fun.

Most of the people in the SL were NOT out of their minds. Yes, some of the schools were probably awful (I just finished reading an article about a disaster in a school in The Bronx where essentially the ordered from above lack of discipline turned a good school into a sort of "Lord of the Flies."

But ignorance and stupidity are different things. Most of the people in the SL didn't care too much what was going on in the League because it had almost no influence on them.

Yes, there were protectorates, etc., where it was important and people behaved rationally (they might be opposed to what was going on but no one wants to die).

And the media can have a mighty influence even if it lies.
