Major Corbin goes to the local Marine watering hole, The Keel Haul, to get some info about what is going on in the sector. Some of the local guys have been chasing a confed ship that had an experimental ddrive. One of them expounds a theory of a galactic graveyard where all the ships that get lost in ddrive end up. After a few drinks most of the marines decide to start a fight with the Navy bar down the street, The Long Oarsman. A drunken fight ensues and Corbin gets in a fight with a navy officer that recognizes him and his rep. Major Corbin messes up the Navy officer and the MP’s show up. The marines scatter and some of the Mp’s follow Corbin. He dodges for awhile but they catch up with him and he goes to the drunk tank that night.
Pierce goes on his vengence hunt to get back at Mr. Belding. He searches out Mr.Belding’s daughter at the local university. He heads to her sorority to meet her and try to get her attention. He talks to the girl who answers the door and she ends up slapping him. He tries to talk his way in and fails, but gets Mitsy to come down to the door. She knees him in the crotch but he talks his way in to help her study her math. He fails at math and gets kicked out but she says she will meet up with him later.
Doc goes shopping for a dress to wear to go drinking. Finds one she wants and goes to drink but gets lost. She ends up in the wrong part of town and is soon accosted by the wrong element. She tries to talk her way out and gets two of the three to start to leave but the third is still interested. She pulls her gun and shoots that one in, you guessed it, the groin. He drops screaming to the ground and the other two start backing away. She steals all their wallets and tell them to drag their buddy to the hospital before he bleeds out.
