With the crew of the Allgood held prisoner, Straker has refreshed his oxygen and is headed back to rescue them. He is attacked by crewmen from the other ship, but Straker gets help from a new ally.
By the way, I’ve been screwing around with the lyrics that Straker and Sophia write in the book, put it to music, and made a video. See the youtube link in the “links” widget on the right (if you’re viewing on a desktop/laptop). The song is called “Straker’s Lament” until I come up with something snappier. Cheers, kpr
