Chapter 3 - Can you tell me where can we start over?[]

New Avalon Institute of Science
New Avalon, Federated Suns

Dinh Ngo watched through the window as his younger brother writhed, screaming.  "It's been a month." he said.

The doctors turned away, ashamed.

"It's been a week, what are you giving him now? Neuroin? It's not working." questioned Dinh.

"We're trying another series of experimental drugs, Mister Ngo."  the doctor said, "Star League Era stuff."

"I told you, it's not working. My god man, don't you have any decency left?"

"We're doing all we can, Sir." said the doctor.

"No, you're doing everything you're willing to do. My brother agreed to this experiment, but he's not in his right mind anymore, and he's spent the last thirty four days, seven hours, and forty minutes in a continuous seizure state.  It's time to end this." said

"I can't let you do that-the Hippocratic Oath-"

"DO NO HARM." He pointed at the ruin of a man on the other side of the glass, a body thrashing in agony. Restrained with life-support stints rammed in to keep him alive. "DO NO HARM-that, in there is harm, Doctor.  End the gods-damned experiment!!" Dinh's eyes were red and tearing, his voice quivered, "End it, my brother isn't in if he is, he wants out.  Don't you have any god damned decency?"

Dinh had to be removed by armed guards.  The experiment would continue for another sixty days before being terminated by an attack.

Truk Ngo died in almost unimaginable agony, the final mercy coming from an unknown assailant's bullet.
