One Too Many Mornings

Synopsis

A lack of Hemmoians in the command crew triggers a forgotten security measure in the Station's computer who just will not hear the crew's pleas not to detonate the fusion reactors. Meanwhile, the badly scarred mercenary, Sonhan is contacted by a Folan officer and informed that his employers have lost confidence on him due to his unsuccesful handling of the job he was hired to do. The Folan officer does not tell Sonhan, but it becomes clear that Sonhan is also a liability now, and therefore his assasination is just a matter of time. In a fit of rage, Sonhan decides to go and kill Nix Balmorra by using Lydia. As the Folan officer lures Sonhan into a ship, and Sonhan blasts off to do his dirty work, the ship unexpectedly explodes - finally killing Sonhan. The Folans conclude that their plan to destabilise the region did not proceed as expected, and one of the Foland admiral scorns at the idea of using hired guns to do jobs that Folan military professionals could've completed much faster and more efficiently.
