I just had a thought. Stay with me on this: If their standard procedure for fueling the station involves taking the entire teraport defense system down. . .
. . .then the high-velocity antimatter missiles we encountered were probably 'ported into place during a refueling operation. We now know where to start looking for suspects in that particular crime.
I said "stay with me," not "run on ahead."
Sorry. You talk slower than you think, and you think like a meat glacier.
