"You can't know that." Seether said.

"I married a Trueborn, Seether." Elizabeth stated, "Nathan was horrified."

"He didn't divorce you." Seether inserted

"True." she looked troubled.  "That's going to cost him.  Did you get a look at Haskins' witness lists?"

"Of course, it's standard." Seether said, "He's subpoena'd some of your crew, along with members of the Metis government, Lyran High Command, and requested testimony in written form from the Archon and from the General of the Armies."

Elizabeth frowned, "No scientific analysts?"

Seether froze, "Yeah. That's weird, I lined up a couple of Climatologists, a geoscientist, and two physicists..."

"Keep them under your hat as defense counsel for now, then." Liz said, "We don't need our precious eggheads getting scrambled and fried in holy shroud three."
