@BeerWill: Good points, lemme address.
No insurance company in the world (or galaxy, for that matter), is going to pay out after a week. Or a month. Insurance companies are vampires, and will not pay out — for anything over a few thousand bucks — without taking them to court and forcing them to live up to their contractual obligations. So, Gredok wouldn’t be seeing a payoff from that for many months, at the earliest, and he would need to present some proof of destruction, most likely (something that works just fine all over the galaxy save for the Portath Cloud). No boom-boom signal, no payout.
As for the Commissioner, it’s in the book that he’s planning on bumping up a team from Tier Two to replace the Krakens. This isn’t the first time the league has lost a ship. Froese doesn’t screw around: games get played as-scheduled, season goes on as-scheduled.
Finally, you don’t get to see what’s going on off-camera (away from Quentin and the gang). You’re with them. There’s lots happening around the galaxy in regards to the vanished ship, as evidenced by a freakin’ war almost breaking out because of it.
@BukaHobbit” First of all, THE RIDER will melt your face. Second, ALIVE probably will, too. Don’t count it out because it’s “YA.”
@michaelkidd: No joke, just a mistake by some dumb-ass writer …
@michaelkidd: People come and go here, we don’t really get a ton online at any one moment.
@atomictwills: We’re working on scheduling the re-write of EARTHCORE so it fits in with the Siglerverse timeline. When we do that, we plan on getting Phil Gigante to read it, and we will get it on Audible pronto. Don’t have an ETA for you, unfortunately.
@lordimpala: No, I don’t think Marie’s Children will make it to the GFL era. Kings or soldiers. But who knows?
@lordimpala: Sorry, I’m not understanding the question. I might be missing a quote/reference? To take it literally, there are many soldiers in the GFL. Several Quyth Warriors, for example, have engravings of their unit insignia on their carapaces.
@natalief: THE ROOKIE is more space opera with heavy (but underlying) political elements. The era is based on World War I reconstruction, and is a metaphor for the racially unifying power of sports.
@BigJohn: Health issues? I hope you’re recovering well (and not just so I can see pics of you all muddy like Jason & Co.
@john_michael_smith: The NOCTURNAL song is “Wake Up” by Story of the Year, off the album Black Swan. I always name the artist and song at the end of each podcast.
