Hello

I read UH with a lot of joy. The book is <imho> very well written, the story makes sense....
But still there are some things i didn't get.

As soon as Mesa is involved i think there should be Beowolfs intelligence agencies are supposed to be the main part of the research.
Mesa is a part of Beowolfs history!
Firebrand mentioned the name 'Detweiler'
With that name all the alarms start to go on as soon as Beowolf hears it. Because it was a Detweiler who left from Beowolf to Mesa in anger!

The ships which are send out to conquer and hold the wormholes are often described as older ones.
I think any reasonable navy is supposed to send the ships out there which are best able to hold themselves so far away from their bases. The Saganami Cs along with even just one Agamemnon BC(P) are not really needed in a fleet with 300 + SDs, but they would make a big difference out there.

That Admiral Gweon - didn't they realize that he has an enhanced DNA? Especially when they know, that there is nanotechnology used.

When does Henke and Tourville get married? :mrgreen:

This has been the foremost question burning in my mind ever since I first read the book.

Don't you make me 'cat-eyes-and-quivering-lip you twice over, RFC!! :lol:

Wouldn't Mike (Henke) & Mike (Oversteegen) be even better for that?

Also, she's 5th in line, (3rd according to UH) so it is possible, although highly unlikely, that she may become queen and thus need to marry a commoner.

didn't QE2 in call to vengeance have constitution amended to say that if they are queen and unmarried (be that either unwed or widowed) they DON'T have to marry a commoner?
