Got a lot of ideas about the next book kicking around inside the cranium. What sounds most appealing:
1. Normal “continuing adventures” of Taj and crew, largely intact
1a) Expected near future interactions with the universe, as governments start reacting to a new military and political force in their world
1b) Development and adventures of the first new Armadillo-class ship built at Tau Piper
1c) Further future book, such as one about Quinn
2. “Book of the past,” a story about one or more of the characters’ earlier development, what is it that got them here?
2c) Lag and/or Harbin
2d) Kaushik and/or Kaminski
2f) Kwon & family
2h) Quinn (obviously would be more a “when he grows up” story)
3) Intersectional story, primarily about one or more other characters that are seen in the book but not a primary character, and what their existence was like before, during, and after Taj and company emerge on the scene.
3a) Penger Trask
3b) Admiral Flicker
3c) Admiral Hawk
3d) Councilor Darch and/or Seymore
3e) Brother Libra
3f) Private Horkle
3g) Life aboard the HMS Hussein on it’s flight back to civilization
3h) Taj isn’t the only remaining AI aboard such a hull
4) Something else that sounds really cool.
