The whole side story was running on 87 octane, unleaded plot.
There was an opportunity for an interesting battle and instead we got war porn. "James, give the natives another taste of the Maxim."
Unfortunately, the book was released hastily, with no editing and proofing, with just that one revision that delayed it for several week. If it had been released as it should have, with more review, the story probably would have been cleaned up and thought out more, with better transitions and fewer plot holes.
With more time and a re-read or 2, it would be changed just like the revision at the end of AAC, where originally Honor used a Hermes Buoy MISSILE in a cell on a missile pod to communicate with Tourville (yes, it would get to his formation with the missiles - then continue to fly past at 3/4ths the speed of light and be useless as a communications device). Unfortunatly, with zero time for that type of catch, we got the book we got.
