Tourville's Memoirs

"Shannon, you have to remember the 'Citizen Commander' address. 'PC' is shorthand for politically correct and People's Commissioner. You have got to remember that with this new regime the two are synonomous and dangerous."

"PC is also shorthand for personal computer, and my PC is synonomous with 'blow' and 'up'.

Son, your mother says I have to hang you. Personally I don't think this is a capital offense. But if I don't hang you, she's gonna hang me and frankly, I'm not the one in trouble. —cthia's father. Incident in ? Axiom of Common Sense

One reason the different star nations have trouble getting along is that they don’t speak the same language.

For example, if you told Solarian personnel to “secure a building,” they would turn off the lights, lock the doors,and stop listening to what ever is happening outside.

Havenite personnel would occupy the building so no one could enter or leave. They'd also redecorate the building

Manticorians would assault the building, capture it, and defend it with Honor Harrington and Treecats.

The Andermani, on the other hand, would take out a three-year lease with an option to help the people of the building with their problems.


Maybe split up the Haven section?

CoPS (Committee of Public Safety)/StateSec personnel would occupy the building with StateSec so no one could enter or leave. They'd also redecorate the building with StateSec flags, and begin blasting Citizen Ransom's propaganda.

The PN (if they have a skilled CO (someone like Tourville, Theisman, Giscard or McQueen), and no Citzen Ransom watching their every move for her propaganda)would occupy the building with naval forces so no one could enter or leave, then add some defenses (not RMN class, obviously, but better than nothing), and do some redecoration, and try not to have StateSec or the RMN take it from them.

Republic of Haven edition

Shannon's people at Bolthole would occupy the building with naval forces so no one could enter or leave, being Havenites, but they would also move in and set up their R&D facility (if it's hidden like Bolthole is). They would not redecorate the building with StateSec flags, and begin blasting Citizen Ransom's propaganda, because their CO and the rest of the RHN isn't a fan of that (they fought a war, and had Shannon be a hacker to get rid of StateSec). If they redecorate, don't expect anything fancy or neat. There may be missing wristcoms that look like Vice Admiral Foraker's wristcom, and maybe some new tech toys (imagine running into Moriarty for the first time while mousetrapped like Solon, but at Bolthole, if Bolthole was in a grav wave).

When a treecat is dropped, it ALWAYS lands on its
feet; and when toast is dropped, it ALWAYS lands with the buttered
side facing down. Therefore, I propose to strap buttered toast to the
back of a 'cat. When dropped, the two will hover, spinning inches above the
ground, probably into eternity. A "buttered-treecat array" could replace
pneumatic tires on cars and trucks, and "giant buttered-'cat arrays"
could easily allow a high-speed monorail linking Landing with Saganami Island.

Handy guide to modern warfare

If it's new, ever changing and realy inventive, it's Grayson/Manticorian.
If it just barely behind the the above, yet has more of them, it's Havenite.
If it doesn't work, or the com officer on board is a Commodore, it's the Solarian League.

The Three Laws of The the People's Navy under the Committee.

1.You can't win.

2.You can't break even.

3.You can't quit the fight.


Handy guide to modern warfare Pt 2

If your ships get blown up by hacking, it's either RMN or RHN (or PN).

If it doesn't work, or if any staff officer is above the rank of Commodore (except on major fleets, like any fleet with Honor, which are exceptions if needed), it's the Solarian League's Battle Fleet.

Shannon's blonde in canon. Trust me, I also thought she was a redhead, until I found that little mention somewhere that she's not.

Beth's Memoirs

"Forget about it Beth! I am not signing off on that! I have never disobeyed your wishes but this is a negative!"

"What is the big deal Hamish?!" Grinning mischievously.

"The big deal? I have to sleep beside her, and I would like to keep both of my family jewels, intact! I will not be party to a new class of ship being called the Salamander Class!"

Maybe she is a mixture of both. Perhaps she is a dirty blonde. She certainly fights dirty. LOL

I once dated a blonde who became a redhead in the summer time. I thought it was the sun, but no, the carpet on her nether region was segregated half and half. One side was very blonde. The other side was red. It was kind of weird.
