“Perfect. I’ll be back in a few minutes.”
“Will we get a reply before we come out of the wormhole?” Sondra asked.
Vermillion turned before he got through the door. “If they respond to the server that I’m sending this from, yes.” He left.
JJ moved closer to me. “You know, this might piss Simone off enough to actually attack Earth, and then we’re in trouble.”
“She’s going to do it anyway, unless we surrender, and we’re not doing that. If she hits Earth with an attack, then I will target Devonia Axxiom. I didn’t intend that message as an idle threat.”
“That’s the Captain Trey Clarke I remember,” Sondra said. JJ shot her a worried glance, but kept her mouth shut.
