I'm sad to see it end. Though I would love to see what makes up the Free Canopian worlds.

This was a wonderful story.  You expanded from your original outline and made changes that kept us guessing at times.  As usual there was wonderful characterization and world building mixed with a great detailing of the conflicts (political, personal, and battlefield) that kept the readers engaged.   :thumbsup:

I'm curious as to what you might write next for the Battletech universe.  Will it be a continuation of one of your other stories that fell off, I'm particularly looking at Centurion and A Victorian Age, or will it be something brand new?  I am looking forward to whatever comes next from your pen...er, keyboard.

One tell of a story with lots of plot twists for sure and really kept coming back to read this story and it was fun to see hanse helping out for 20 years which is kinda weird for him though. Thank you very much for this very wonderful story and I really want to say I look for ward to your next monster....

The Canopian worlds NOT conquered by the Free World's League of course.  Probably has Lockton as a border world, if I was guessing.

I have to ask... how did Admiral Jones fare?  I can only hope he had a good retired life...

Drak mentioned over at the OBT.com site that he plans to release this story as a 3-part PDF, for those interested/wondering.

Okay, these links should (if I've got this right), lead to PDF documents of the three books of the story:

Davion & Davion (Deceased) I - Idealist
Davion & Davion (Deceased) II - Loyalist
Davion & Davion (Deceased) III - Secessionist

Looks like they're working as intended, kind sir!  Thanks!  :thumbsup:

And I'd still be interested in a word or two about Admiral Jones, if you get a chance... :)

And Helena Cameron. What happened to her? After all the trouble they went through to keep her safe, her just fading from the public eye after the election was a bit anti-climactic.

The most irritating thing is..I wanna know how this universe changes and what happens!  it seems that the Kerensky boys are fighting or at least have fallen into two camps, the Hegemony survives all be it in a diminished form, there's a bit of a dente going on and it seems the Lyrans are the 'baddies', but there's been no huge collapse, no terrible Succession Wars.
