Prologue ...
A little recap from your author with a list of what has gone before below.
What have the teammates figured out?
1.  That the first system discovered by the Salesman was actually Caradesh Central Clearing, most probably the working financial and shipping heart of the Caradesh Technological Empire.  An empire which hopes to control all systems with a monopoly of trade goods, the tech of which cannot be understood or worked with by most other peoples.
2.  That Lissandra's folks are "those who are not", and they have simply endeavoured to stay completely beyond the knowledge of the "uncivil" since their first contact. The Stygian Dark Spheres are their hidden  development and ideation headquarters, but the vasts majority of their peoples simply live so very distant from the lands of the 'uncivil' that it is almost beyond imagining that they would be of interest. After all the 'uncivil' have a vast expanse of space which they can try to conquor, much closer to home.

Wary, wary be …  …
I do not move, I change nothing, I feign suspension, though any adept, even a novice is aware of the conscious mind.  Yet I feign suspension and continue my drift … I am certainly not going to slip into their midst and offer to shake hands … …  …  no, that just would not do, they will need to offer the first contact … these may not be the ones, they may be pawns, proxies, front line dispensible soldiers out here to tend to my collection, or possibly unmanned craft! … I drift on by, a seemingly derelict object on a stream of plasma.
This brings no actions, no craft comes forth, nothing happens, and so I continue my oddessy until such time as the dream interuptor either finds my mind, or finds me in the ship. … I drift farther and farther.
I allow the suspension module to signal awakening, as if I had been out, and were only now coming awake.  I remain in the pod.
Ah, and then it comes

Over 2/3 of the way across and the game is up … they have detected the object, my ship, and they are coming to investigate.  
A long range scan we could survive, but up close and personal, no way.  The goose is cooked as they used to say, I will be discovered, be undone and then spend the rest of eternity in some closely guarded facility for spies and other folk not of the Established Governance --  whatever this culture calls itself.
I set the pod to put me into suspension mode a few minutes before they arrive, and I put the data into as deep and as obfuscated an archive as I have at my disposal (short of coding it into the coating on the hull) … It will look like readings of a system taken many years back and very uninteresting. Amazing what the professional secret keepers can manage these days!
Guarding my reactions, I watch them come.  Closer and closer, and then … What?..
What happened, out on that moon? … Someone or something attacked t

I Dreamed of a Barred Galaxy .. 3
As I continued my slow and tedious data collections I came upon a most amazing sector, a sector using an generally unknown kind of technology, a technology of rather advanced beings, a technology which civilizations and cultures generally came upon late in their evolution.  Many suns, many planets all connected in this wonder of advanced engineering …
With sensors on high, and great caution, because such civilizations seldom lacked for advance notification of intruders, or of any unusually activity near them (a par sec would be near); I moved closer for a special mapping run.  … I knew I could not approach this sector much closer than 2.5 par sec, making my sensors work very hard to collect the data; unusual data, easier to read data, but still straining for detail at this distance would test them.  Setting all systmes to quite and silent runnning, I engaged the most capable of the cloaking modes and began a slow drift across the area using a slow moving plas

I Dreamed of a Barred Galaxy .. 2
There is nothing quite like starting a new day with a new project (fresh and bright) in mind, and since this swirling mass of lights and dust (and et cetera) had actually bothered to slip into my mind and into my dream and apprise me of it's presence before I even woke from my slumber …  Well, that's worth something, certainly, that is worth some time and energy and attention, so I launched myself in it's direction.
I did not notice it was so large, my oh my, this is a large item!
Where to start, where to start?
Turn on Stellar Cartography, take your bearing and assign a course, off we go!
Fly over, map, photograph, take many data readings, many, many data readings!!
Fly under, and do the same, then begin the long journey around the edge … high,and low, around we go, miss nothing, leave nothing to chance.
Thoroughness is the name of this game, especially if there are sentient life forms, which is a foregone conclusion … as someone, somebeing, entered my mind, my

I Dreamed of a Barred Galaxy
A Galaxy … what is a Galaxy?
What is a galaxy you ask …
I had this notion, of a swirling collection of lights.
It was lovely, it moved with grace and seeming purpose …
It caught up my imagination and pulled me along on its journey.
It was restless, and always in motion.
Creation, destruction, such power, how to know if it was making or unmaking … ??
After a time I came to understand, it had various tendencies, it had order in the chaos, it was formed and functioned within a set of behaviors.
 
It always turned things in the same way (unless of course, they got caught up in some other action and then they could manage to go the other way, but not with the elegance they showed before).
It grouped things into long nebulous streams, like fox tails, and squirrel tails, or long, fatter collections of dust and lights and other things.
It moved forward, toward some unknown destination.  Perhaps a destination also in motion? …

Things of wisdom seem to compete with art these days. Books, and more books. What can I say. Thank goodness for the Library, or I would be so very broke!

Current Residence: Why did I move here, ... really?
deviantWEAR sizing preference: generous
Print preference: Large
Favorite genre of music: Celtic at the moment .. & meditation
Favorite photographer: re-ditto
Favorite style of art: I love "Art", but dig the fractals, too.
Operating System: .. ha, ha, you call this an OS? .. well I get online ..
MP3 player of choice: not yet
Shell of choice: not yet
Wallpaper of choice: There are too many of these to choose just one!
Skin of choice: my own of course ... tisk...
Favorite cartoon character: Oh, too long ago, ...um, um, too long ago!
Personal Quote: Also, too many; you will see some of them!
Interests
It has been kind, clouds, breeze, showers, .... it has been a kind summer, as it was a kind winter.  I have a few more months to stay here in my car, and then I will move to Canada, and stay the 4 years needed to become a dual citizen.

I suspect I will have to work, since I will not seem very Canadian living on US Social Security, but that's OK, I can bus tables or something ... can't count the money and not good with metric, but I will get by!

doTERRA have opened a distribution centr in Calgry, Alberta ... tempting, once I am acclimated, perhaps.  At the beginning, just gettng acquainted will be sufficient.

Kindle Self Publish has been awesome.  I am learning, slowly.  I will likely look back on these books and freak out, like teenagers do when mothers produce baby pictures.  But they are essentially Author Baby Steps, and they have been fun, and challenging, and I even received my first royalty check for $4.50!!  yea!  It works!!

Hope you have all had great inspirations, and creations, and life has been good to you!


Happy 'almost' Indian Summer.
