This copy of The Transfer has been revised and
officially re-released in 2010. Most revisions are minor
spelling and grammar corrections, but one is to a calendar
date translated from a Days After Breakaway, where the DAB
figure was correct but the calendar translation was incorrect.
This is the most important correction given two subsequent
stories refer to the correct date. Other than all of this,
there have been some slight formatting changes,
a few minor dialogue improvements, and
some other corrections as well.
The earlier copy of this novel, at the Cyber Museum section of the Catacombs,
will remain as it was in 1997, as it was part of an "online convention"
organized at the time, where this novel was initially released.
Please note that this is what could be called a "Year Three" S19 story, which
combines elements and characters of Year One and Two of the series as televised.
In this case, I will not explain how that is possible. That is a whole other story --
actually, parts of a couple stories, which are planned or even started by now.
This novel is part of the
Bridges and Anchorages
series of fan fiction stories.
A zipfile is available, containing all the webpages and images comprising The Transfer.
