First half July 25, 1996. Second half September 26, 1996. So what was it that Antares did to get Daphne so irritated? I am not sure but it was probably nothing special. Since the U2 is a very intimate device, even the fact that Antares was there would be roughly equivalent to finding a stranger under one's bed. Now there are some stringent questions. How could Daphne possibly get lost in a galaxy some 50+ millions of lightyears away? The velocity of the ship at the accident could have taken her there in the time that Antares thinks has elapsed since then but how could the system ship remain operational so long and what about braking? And if the time distortion was actually a wormhole then who had made it? And why is the course of action unlear even to the AI of the ship?
