You know, what with all the super moguls getting heavily into the commercial space biz of late—we've got Elon Musk and Richard Branson and a few billionaires from Google, at least—one of the thornier parts of the A* backstory that you haven't seen yet has kind of worked itself out! I mean, seven years ago I came up with this scheme for how people from Earth ended up in the galactic core, 26,000 light years away, and I wasn't quite sure how the nitty gritty details of the very beginning of it were going to work, but, it turns out, history itself soon came to my rescue. So I was a few years ahead of my time—not that I can say I predicted this thing that I'm leaving vague here so I don't spoil it, exactly, but it very conveniently explains how the earliest part of A*'s own fictional history could happen; because if it hadn't happened quite that way yet, people might have told me it was far-fetched, because even though some of these commercial space companies were around back then, I guess, they hadn't really started showing actual space capability, and thus weren't really on the radar, as it were. Okay, not on *my* radar. ... So a smarter person would have been able to tell me back then that this was already happening. But *I* didn't know that, and I thought my story point was a little far-fetched! But now it isn't, as even I myself now know, so, thanks, history! : D And I guess you super space moguls too.

I was hoping someone would make that joke! : D It's a climbing harness, but they actually do have a structure like that, with a central loop coming down off the buckle of the belt, and two bands branching off that to hold up the loops around the thighs. ... They probably just don't wear all-white ones >_>
