**[[spoiler: Update, it turns out that due to a combination of interrupted communications, the death of the Mesan Alignment Covert Operations head and a reasonable yet wrong assumption as to whether or not he had received the entire package, Firebrand got the Goodies but not the Killswitch since it needed to be tailored to his DNA at the very lab that got destroyed at the same time the Mesan Head Spy got killed.]]

** Actually it's not so much that the edict doesn't apply to police actions as the edict doesn't apply to military targets. The edict is actually pretty limited in scope, it basically says that you are not allowed to use WMDs indiscriminately against civilian targets. It's perfectly acceptable to use them against military targets and if doing so inflicts civilian casualties then that's the fault of the defender for parking his military near to civilians (so long as the attacker made a reasonable effort to minimize the effect of the strike outside the immediate military area. So in the case of a rebellion a town that is occupied by rebel military a forces is arguably a legitimate military target under the edict. Obviously attacking it with a WMD is still a really awful thing to do but it's not specifically a violation of the edict.

* On a similar note as above, but for different reasons altogether, I give you Allen Higgins and Genevieve Chin. Those two poor sobs can't seem to catch a break, it'd be nice to actually see something going right for both of them.

* Lester Tourville and Michelle Henke, cowboy admirals extraordinaire. The Queen of Manticore's first cousin (and Honor's best friend) hooking up with Haven's senior serving admiral? Talk about a political bonanza! And ''Shadow of Victory'' doesn't exactly discourage the possibility...

possibility... And the whole 'same chain of command' doesn't even apply

[[WMG:Honor's charisma is partly due to her empath abilities...and she's not the only one.]]
* At several points in the series, people remark on Honor's uncanny leadership abilities, and Honor herself constantly works on projecting an aura of competence and calm in a crisis. What if she's ''actually'' (subconsciously) projecting something? Something that subtly influences people around her? And what would that mean for other characters said to have intense charisma...like, for example, Esther [=McQueen=]? Her effect on those around her is almost supernatural, isn't it?
