Time Jumpers Episode 7: Hapsh'm and the First Coethi Encounter

Publisher Description

First Time Displacement Battery has survived a supernova in the age of First Light by ducking into voidtime. But the ship has suffered damage anyway and repairs have to be made.
After the repairs, the jumpship Cygnus attempts a risky jump to their home time stream. They make it, but not quite where they wanted to be along the worldline. In fact, they’ve arrived some sixty years earlier, at a world called Hapsh’m, and a time when Umans first encountered the hated enemy Coethi.
The Bugs have swarmed over much of Hapsh’m City and Dringoth decides they have to “fight the battle we’re in.” Despite misgivings from some of the crew about messing with this worldline, the time jumpers boost down to the planet and use their skills, tactics and weapons to help the Hapsh’mites fight off the enemy. But Captain Dringoth has been here before, for he was part of the original defense of Hapsh’m sixty years before. The exec, Commander Nathan Golich, believes Dringoth is systematically trying to re-live all his earlier exploits and change the outcomes. Something needs to be done.
As happened before, the Bugs are defeated and Dringoth emerges as a decorated survivor. But the main worldline is changed, in violation of strict Time Guard policy. The mystery deepens when Golich, on short liberty in town, finds an unusual patron at a bar in Hapsh’m City, a man he has encountered before, a time pirate who has the power to make Golich wealthy beyond belief, if only he will give up his Time Guard commission. If Golich agrees, a new life will be opened up to him. But if he does agree, Dringoth’s fiddling with time streams and worldlines could endanger everyone and everything, even allowing the Coethi to penetrate to the very heart of Uman space.
