Doctor Bunnigus has some unpleasant work to do. Like most people fated with a tiresome task, she cheerfully allows herself to become embroiled in a completely unrelated activity. And like any mercenary medic seeking distraction, her choice for embroilment is an ad-hoc military operation.
With no supply chain, zero backup, and a single carbosilicate amorph as their own force multiplier, the Doctor and her companions must infiltrate Haven Hive in order to make a house call. Unfortunately for teh house in question, and perhaps for all the denizens of Haven Hive, when Sergeant Schlock provides force multiplication the math gets messy.
Tayler takes a handful of characters who've rarely been at the forefront in their own stories and Schlock and throws them into their own story without immediate chance of backup. Great shake-up.
