Episode 76 - The Torment, The Release

Dearest Wife,


 I know not how this letter will find you. I do hope that it is on the fairest of days and that it brings you some comfort that your husband is alive and well and thinking of you. Our regiment has moved again, this time to Xinti, and is preparing for another engagement with the enemy in the coming days. I am eating well and getting enough rest, though my pre-fab quarters could stand to have a few less vermin in them if you ask me. 


 Since the great powers in this New Systems Commonwealth have now decided to part ways in their ideals, we citizens of it are now forced to take up arms against one another. I for one am proud to stand for the ideals of the Commonwealth against these rebellious Collectors. Rest assured I will make you proud and will endeavor to return home to you as soon as possible, this war permitting. 


 -Your loving husband

Episode 75 - Exalted Reason, Resplendent Daughter

Life as a royal is hard. Managing 300 planets is a thankless job. So when your preening princess of a daughter starts to steal some of your thunder and becomes a favorite of the masses, its time to take her out. At least that's what Shineoa San thought he was doing when he loaded his daughter on a ship and sent her off to her doom. But his plan backfired when the very pirate he thought was going to kill her fell in love with her instead. Now he's chased them down into some enzyme swamp on a no-name backwater world to finish the job. Jim Byrnes stars in "Falling Down 2 - Misculon Nights"


Also, Andromeda and crew are in here as well in the actual episode title: "Exalted Reason, Resplendent Daughter"

Episode 74 - Machinery of The Mind

A conference of the galaxies greatest minds is convened to brainstorm about the Magog Worldship and what could be done to prevent disaster. Who better to put in charge of this meeting of the minds? Seamus Harper. No, we don't think that was a particularly smart idea either, but Dylan was called away on another matter so this is what we got. It's an episode of intrigue, name calling, lots of sass, and yes, brains: "Machinery of The Mind".

Welcome back to Drive Back the Night, in this episode: Dylan fulfills a 300 year old prophecy. Beka and Rhade get stumped by these faux walls. A young woman is reunited with her Spencer Gift's toy, and Harper loses a jacket. So sit back, switch over and hope we don't have a burnout in the "Conduit to Destiny".
