Interesting idea "ID' that the FMS may ultimately be someone else's patsy. Either way this should turn out to be pretty darn interesting... Now it makes me wonder even more is "someone" going to get blasted back to the stone age? And if so, who is it going to be?Not a ID wrote: ↑Sat Aug 17, 2019 6:23 amI just discovered Chapter 6 is out, just downloaded but decided to fire this one off first before reading it.GotToGo wrote: ↑Thu Aug 15, 2019 7:57 pmHey it's going to lead to where/who is getting the money in-the-end.

JeffreyC - Nice post chief. Agreed - that is where I hope Fel goes with this. That somewhere in the UN there is someone who has their fingers on the checkbook and the patient scheduling system and is using the access to pocket the money while making it look like things are being done.
I suspect the Faey Medical Services are going to be part of the problem. But there will likely be "more to the story" that is going on there.
Chapter 5 was heavy on stuff not making the FMS look very good. Between the very low training success rate for Terran Doctors, the issue that was raised in regards to medical procedures for reproductive assistance(because the Faey have a religious taboo on it), and so on. While the "Revolution" may not be the FMS, they're probably going to be on the receiving end of some rather unpleasant attention from Jason soon enough if more issues keep cropping up. And given how entrenched they are, that's going to be quite the battle for Jason when the time comes... But I doubt it reaches the level of being its own major story arc, rather than a minor one.
A thought I had centered around the FMS and how they won't use fertility treatments if someone is having a hard time having a child...Songa won't help Seido and Merra for example. But may be the rest of the FMS, or some of the upper leadership have talked themselves into the "humans aren't Faey, so we have more wiggle room with what truly is "unnatural".
Looking forward to chapter 7.
