Perfect Future sounds like Perfect Nightmare now
Great, trying to wrap my head around the time travel and repeated cycles was hard enough (I struggle even with time travel stories I write). Now we find out The Paradox is literally powerful enough to casually violate the First Law of Thermodynamics, and I have a genuine headache.

Hmm.I wonder when the next update is... *hint,hint*
Also,I'm calling BS on Hakara's "time is naturally linear" theory. The End of the Cycle agrees that time is circular, and Paradox actually denies it.Also,even if he is correct,that doesn't mean she lied. Weir could've been wrong,and she never explicitly stated that time was circular, it was just heavily implied...

Oh, yeah! I forgot I moved that segment to Chapter 5.2! Here's the info you're looking for:Also,again, what does Eteka think of Mira being a Mihaka?
Eteka Mihaka said:That Hakara guy mentioned 'Mira Mihaka' when he was briefing all of us about the Ark Angel's crew after we all met up aboard the Queen Karan. He just told us she was secretly commanding Task Force Kraahkan and he didn't specify if she was from the past or the future... which is frustrating. If he'd said when she was from, we could prepare for her. I really don't wanna go into this fight with missing intel. See, I've got multiple relatives named Mira. I've got an ancestor from the Wars of the Famine named Mira, and my older brother Namuna talked about naming his first daughter Mira as well, so there's at least one future Mira we know about! So which Mira was Hakara talking about, damnit!?
If its Namuna's kid, we can plan accordingly. Ango thinks we could exploit the fact that she'd recognize me.
If it's Toa Wahine Mira Mihaka, we just have to bring a gun to a knife fight. She was supposed to be some kind of swordsmaster during the Wars of the Famine. Easy as walking.
But Hakara didn't say what time or era this Mira's from, which means I have nothing to go on, and I really, really don't like that! I need to know which Mira he was talking about! If I can't catch up to Hakara and ask, I'll just get Kendra to do it.
Wait,given that Hakara and Mira has a “defection pact” ,why didn’t Hakara tell Mira that he’d defected? It would’ve prevented many deaths…
Chapter 5.2 is gonna get complicated...Also,@QueenKendra, how do you feel about General Kopunui Ignoring your orders?
Queen Kendra said:Technically, she hasn't answered my call yet. We committed one helluva Causality Violation to make that call happen, but she's pissed me off nonetheless. If General Kopunui turns out to be that Mira woman Hakara warned us about, I might get... well... she definitely knows what I'm trying to stop, and if she obstructs me again, I'll kill her myself. We're dealing with Planet-Killers... there's no room for mistakes.
As you'll see in Chapter 5.2, Hakara missed his chance to do both through no fault of his own. Kendra's inability to trust him is partially to blame.Ok,so when is Hakara going to call in the defection pact? And why didn't he appear during that Hyperwave call??
Tantomile's answer is drawn from Chapter 5.2.@EmpressTantomile are you going to try and attack Paradox directly?
Empress Tantomile and Sebakhira said:Only if she gets in the way. My new Command Ship, the LVK Demeter, is built to kill Super-Capital ships. (like Planet-Killers, for instance) So, if the Ark Angel tries to protect Task Force Kraahkan and gets caught in the Demeter's crosshairs... so much the better.
@EmpressTantomile and @QueenKendra, be careful not to give up your morals trying to defeat Paradox.
Queen Kendra said:I'm more scared about getting my friends killed. I still haven't repaid Eteka for going to Whakaari.
Empress Tantomile and Sebakhira said:I'm worried about losing control of my destiny. What's the point of going on if I can't decide who I'm going to be?
I'm terrified we might lose the future itself. The Paradox is trying to take it away from us.
Eteka Mihaka said:I don't want to lose the woman I love... or her future. If I lost her, I'd just be living with no good purpose.
And of course,there will be a reckoning.
