On the Antarse, Mykl and crew were recovering from the battle. The ship was still at full alert, but the firing had ceased. The battle appeared to be over. Commodore Bayne had informed them of her boarding operation. So far it seemed all was going well. For all intents and purposes it was all over.

Mykl turned their attention onto the Mordrake. The ship was far from dead as it turned out, made apparent when Joe Lofflin greeted him tersely from the main viewer. He was marked with soot and his hair looked funkier than usual, but he seemed quite functional.
