A sleepless night for some of the team has them wandering the Reliance at odd hours. Paul finds a gift left on the mess hall table. Jonomox finds Pierce staggering out of the metapods; apparently the older pilot has been trying to find a trick to stay alive. Their discussion of what they found is interrupted by an alert from John Stone; the Adversary is headed into another metaverse. It’s time for Princess Hedgehog, Paul, Jonomox, and Warren Winston Williams III to head into a horror show to try and find out what’s going on this time.
