The Currents of Space – GM 3

Episode 12 was quite an eye-opener for me and is taking the story off in a VERY different direction. I’d like to spell out how it got to this point, because, on the face of it, it looks very contrived and pre-planned.

I can assure you, it is not pre-planned at all; and, to be frank, I really do not know where this is going.

Looking at the timeline, the 2009 uprising happened before Achernar joined the Survey Scouts.

Tying it all together; it made sense that Lydia was a Lebkuchen. I created a little bit more about them and determined that the GF3 model was designed to capture and store genetic material.

* The Lebkuchen are interested in DNA splicing

* Why did Haruna create this model in the first place?

Obviously, Achernar had a bad reaction to this.
