In Chapter 12, the Allgood is closing in on the asteroid Hrothgar. They launch their reconnaissance drone to send back close-up pictures and take samples. Straker undergoes training as the tension between Louis and Katya thickens. Straker gives Louis some advice on how to get Katya’s attention–advice that is way out of Louis’s comfort zone. The conversations with the mysterious hacker get a lot more personal, and Straker finally learns her name.
