* As mentioned above in the section on Beowulf, [[WordOfGod has it - albeit with no details so far - that something devastating is going to happen in the Battle of Beowulf that will result in no fewer than 10 million civilian deaths. It's anyone guess whether that'll be an Edict violation or something else.]]

to:

* Pretty thoroughly {{Jossed}} by the events of the last few books. [[spoiler:As of the end of ''A Rising Thunder'', Rajampet, having reached the end of his usefulness to the Alignment, has shot himself with the assistance of nanotech, the so-called flower of the SLN has been conclusively defeated at Manticore, there's no realistic expectation that the upcoming battle of Beowulf is going to turn out any differently, and the League's leadership - with help from Alignment deep-cover agents - is turning to the more "realistic" strategy of commerce and infrastructure raiding, which might actually work if Manticore and Haven hadn't been practicing that exact same form of warfare against each other for the past two decades and knew all the tricks and what to look for. Moreover, Beowulf is on the point of seceding from the League, several systems sympathetic to it are ready to follow, and the Renaissance Factor is gearing up in the wings. Long story short, the Solarian League is very shortly going to be in no condition to occupy Manticore or anywhere else. Particularly not when the Alignment's real target all along has been the League; weakening Manticore was only a means to an end.]]

* However it works out, it's a lead-pipe cinch that we haven't seen the last of Montana's answer to John Wayne. Westman has a ''big'' bone to pick with the Mesan Alignment over the way he was conned into being their catspaw, so you can count on him doing something to get his own (and his world's) back.

* As of the end of Cauldron of Ghosts, [[spoiler: Mike's arrival has forced the surrender of Mesa, saving Victor, Thandi, and Co. in the process. Houdini has already gotten all of the Alignment's personnel out. Anton has figured out the existence of Houdini and arrived back in Manticore with that knowledge, but has no idea where Houdini took them. Though that will change if and when somebody puts two and two together and gets a hunch as to what actually happened to the Harvest Joy.]]

If somebody decides to take a hard second look at the bloody incident in which Zach Mac Bryde's liner was almost captured by the Royal Torch Navy, that is likely to set the bloodhounds on the trail as well.]]

** Also, it's heavily implied (if not outright stated) in 'Mission of Honor' that the leaders of the Renaissance Factor, who are all described as being exceptionally accomplished people in various arts and sciences as well as responsible, intelligent, liberal-minded political leaders, are among the most highly regarded public figures in the Solarian League. It's entirely possible that when the Factor first makes its appearance, many people in Manticore and Haven will take it at face value as an effort by the League's real best and brightest to bring something worthwhile out of the destruction and chaos, particularly if they position themselves in utter opposition to the former regime.




to:

* [[spoiler:WordOfGod on the Weber discussion forums has it that the next mainline novel will feature a devastating battle between the SLN and the BSDF/RMN in the Beowulf system, and that ''something'' will happen that will result in 10 million Beowulfan civilian fatalities. The current speculation has the cause as either being an accidental or deliberate Eridani Edict violation by the SLN, or else a repeat of Oyster Bay by the Mesan Alignment Navy.]]



* Don't forget that the wormhole, which the ''Harvest Joy'' was destroyed studying, is ''heavily'' implied to lead to the secret Alignment homeworld. That's probably a major ChekhovsGun.

Added DiffLines:

* They both have been shown to be extraordinarily skilled in hand to hand, and to enjoy high contact sparring matches. The fight will probably end inconclusively, (or in a close match and a friendly request for a rematch sometime,) to preserve both character's Badass status.

[[WMG:Eventually, we will have a sparring match between Honor Harrington and Thandi Palane. The Amazons will be MOST impressed.]]

*** Slight correction here. There are NO other signatories to the Eridani Edict. It was never a multi-national treaty, it was a unilateral statement by the Solarian League that it would come after anyone who violated it. Now people like Manticore and Haven will still enforce the same rules because they don't like people who massacre civilians either but there's no treaty requiring or authorizing them to do so, like the Solarian League any actions they take would be because they decided to take them.
