Just went over the chapter again (I take special interest in WC2-era stuff ). One or two more things to discuss. 1. "Snakier" - Should be "Snakeir". 2. "Heinlein" - I thought you said all the systems other than Kalla'Kar were real now? A suggestion: why not say that Kalla'Kar is the Kilrathi name for the Racene System? If you look at it's position, it certainly must be a fairly important system. In fact, it's one of the three systems with jump points leading into K'tithrak Mang. What's more, it's the only jump point which is viable for Confed - Repleetah was finally lost in 2664, and judging from events in WC2, Confed has no idea where the Enigma-K'tithrak Mang jump point is. Now, they're not about to retake Repleetah, and there seems to be no time to search for the Enigma jump point (and at any rate, the Kilrathi already have a foothold in the Enigma System), so Racene fits the bill perfectly. You could even say that this was the system from which the 'Claw jumped into K'tithrak Mang, back in late '56. If that had been the case, then the Kilrathi would have indeed done everything to block this route up afterwards, hence your little moon .
