Another "side" story to embellish the S&S saga. However, it could also stand alone, but does mesh well the the overall theme. A geek is lured from his Uni job & doesn't look back. He is responsible for some very interesting & profitable concepts for S&S, as well as enhancing other aspects of the business.
A once shy loner, he ends up with a "harem" (MUST be something in the water there!) that produces 2 children for him.
A good story, but I felt it left a couple of things undone: did the code for the laser get "leaked"? was the laser tested on the composite material? (for every weapon you develop, you have to have a defense before it can be turned against you.)
Is this the last of the series? or just a rest break?
