I especially loved reading about the Crusaders in action. It's a vivid look at how a group that "are not a numerous people" could go toe-to-toe with galactic powers without getting too many of their few people killed! Real force-multipliers.
Checked Stars of Iron for the first time in six months, and noticed you'd been updating again. Read it again in one sitting. Thank you for continuing one of my favorite stories I had long assumed was dead.
