I didn’t realize that we had an author in our midst.

This will require a look see.

Not an author. By a long shot, but I have read some good ones over there and most gloss over the deeper parts, so this one is going to heavily focus on the problems others don't want to delve into.

Sounds like there may be controversy, intrigue, and dare I say, things that are not politically correct... ;)

If your not familiar with the BattleTech universe it will be hard to follow. No one delves into planetary management because there are no rules for it. As for political correctness, assassination is used a lot in universe when someone gets in your way.

This will at least allow you to look some of the stuff up and get an idea of what it is etc.

Not in the slightest familiar, but I like it. I expect that is a very good thing, unless the BattleTechies are like Star Wars fanatics who bitch at anything not pure Skywalker or Solo. One question: does the young Mitchell by any chance bear a resemblance to a certain graduate of the 2nd Armored?? ;)
