Maybe they will see its destruction as just deserts, use it or lose it type of thing and since the Federation didn’t appreciate it while they had it then they may decide to do something after it’s gone. If they are as pragmatic and technophilic as. I think they have probably copied everything they deemed. Worthy long ago and as thus they won’t be overly angry for its destruction, just a little more miffed at the Federation for being. So inept at defending the only thing they found worthy in that foolish endeavor. Feds barely did anything with the archives in the first place.
The Abyssal Lord, however? Hmm, this will be interesting. If the Colonel and Tawnie play their hand right they may be able to negotiate with the Kalent directly for safe passage while also making the Federation look like even bigger tools in the process. And I wonder, when was the last time an Abyssal Lord had any kind of fun? They always seem to have their asses kissed by the smaller fishes; who knows, maybe some shenanigans will prove to be a refreshing change of pace. You did raise an interesting point. Jessica’s smart, she didn’t become the Devil of Sol by letting opportunities such as that much knowledge simply passing by.
