It is impossible to list how much I owe to my elite plotting team, Strikeforce:


for being Major Democracy.


for the insanity.

Stuart, Richard, Tom, Morph, Taffy Dave, and Mike

for putting up with more Events than any hero should be made to suffer.

And especially

Dave and Chris

who will always be in here.

Without them all, my universe would be a poorer place.

Thanks to Tali for the illustrations and Stuart for the diagrams and general science and technology back-up.
