I was born as part of a program for Peloran cybernetic families to adopt Earthborn pilots. My family had not taken fighter pilots for decades, after an unfortunate loss that left us leery of such, but I wished to try it again. And the mission was worth it. Many of the pilots came from the Great Families of Earth, and we needed them to help bring our peoples together. I picked one who had plans to change things a great deal. He thought he was hiding his plans from me, you understand, but it is difficult to hide anything from one such as I. I wanted to make a difference, to bring change, and to make the worlds a better place. It has been a good life. – Dorothy Hurst.
