And if the eureka moment was to do with regeneration the ramifications would be immense, especially for Honor to get her sight and arm fixed.

I want an eArc of the book. That's all.

As for Hamish in charge of a fleet, right now the top admiral for running fleets is probably Honor.

And changing Emily would be a distraction. Science doesn't work that way.

Or somebody on Mesa having cooked up a metamorphic foxfication virus, maybe just as a hobby project. For that to work in a reasonable time in a non-magical universe, it has to include something acting like built-in regen, leading to obvious core-character-relevant implications :mrgreen:.

There may be side effects though.

Right now the top RMN Admiral for running fleets is probably Mike. Even Honor's a step removed from the front lines these days.

Still, the reason why I want it is because RFC kind of used Hamish like Star Trek: TNG used Worf. When TNG wanted to show how tough a character was, they'd have them win a fight with Worf. When RFC wanted to show how good a Havenite Admiral was, he'd have them win against Hamish. Plus his major accomplishments were largely 'off-screen'. And so I want readers to remember that Hamish Alexander-Harrington is in fact very good at his job, and a worthy partner of our heroine, even if I'm not a big fan of the threesome.

I'd like to see these characters 'fleshed out' a bit.
Faith & James
Prince Roger
Rachael & Honor Mayhew

Let's get to know them as people not just names.

... a healthy and happy Weber family, so all our fantasies can be fulfilled.

A snippet or the eARC would be nice too!

You have psychic space cats! This is not hard science!

Although really all you need to do to fix her ability to walk is a regeneration breakthrough, or a better artificial neuron.
