Dance Among the Stars"It'll be best if you go in backwards."John Stark stared out at the vast expanse of space. After seven years of training, here he was. At last, he was finally ready to fulfill his lifelong dream to dance among those stars; to become a test pilot."John? Can you hear me?" His mentor's voice snapped him back to reality."Uh, yeah. I heard you. Something about going backwards...""Yeah, about that. Plowing the ship strait in will cause a shock wave.

You know I can't, ner vod," he said shakily.Udesiir was furious. "Oh come off it! We're more than just 'siblings', as you put it so crudely. We're not even related! Although I bet you wish we were..." She said the last part darkly, with rage that so rarely emerged from her.
