Trivia: Out of the Dark
- David Weber plans to write a sequel that will reduce the twisy-ness of the ending. It turns out that the horribly violent race that had self-destructed, much to the Hegemony's relief, had been conducting nanotech-based experiments intended to produce a Super Soldier, but had to flee due to the aforementioned self-destruction. The experiment got left behind, where a native named Vlad happened to run across it. The experiment was a success, and the rest is history... or myth, at least.
