    I figured there might be orbiting elements out of Uppsala, specifically from the Uppland Wing out of airbase F16. It’s only about 70km away.
    I wonder if they are still (heavily upgraded) JAS-39s (Gripens were supposed to be end-of-life around 2042) or the Swedish parliament got their fingers out and approved the appropriation bill for the JAS-41.
    It might be that something was actually developed out of GCAP or FS2020.
    Anyhow, where are the firies. Lisa needs coolant, stat, so her nanites can get to work properly. At least daddy Mark is nearby to help work on Lisa. Lisa might still have a chance if everybody gets on the ball.

    So kiss me and smile for me
    Tell me that you’ll wait for me
    Hold me like you’ll never let me go
    ‘Cause I’m leavin’ on a jet plane
    Don’t know when I’ll be back again
    Oh babe, I hate to go

    Luckily, there’s a fire truck parked right next to her. With fast action they should be able to cool her down.

    Seems to me that Steven still has another twist in the tale. Pinky hasn’t been taken out by an air-to-air missile, Kim Il-Sung style. Apart from the fact that she is still in more-or-less one piece, she still has a floor to lie on and walls around her.

    And where did Vestine go? Cue Terminator “jingle”.

      If I’m not mistaken, Vestine went off to join the Choir Invisible.
      She always did have a thing for musoes.

      O may I join the choir invisible
      Of those immortal dead who live again
      In minds made better by their presence; live
      In pulses stirred to generosity,
      In deeds of daring rectitude, in scorn
      Of miserable aims that end with self,
      In thoughts sublime that pierce the night like stars,
      And with their mild persistence urge men’s minds
      To vaster issues.

          Unless of course Pinky has fallen 10,000 feet to crash land on the top deck of a multi-story car-park, which would explain the white lines.

          Camera tracks back to reveal….

            Ah, I think I get it now.
            This isn’t the droid you’re looking for.
            That’s Lisa on the ground.
