I fell down the rabbit hole. What the hell just happened? Now we find out about Kubiilikaan? As a side note, where the hell does she come up with some of these names? Once again the rug is ripped out from under me. Alien scientist? Really? WTH. I do like this Host city though. I want to see it. The descriptions are so clear I wonder how Ms. McCaffrey comes up with all these devices and cool technology.
