Hmmm. That would account for Typhon's sending off a colonization ship,
wouldn't it? Perhaps he thought the death of the sun was imminent, and
wanted to save a fragment of humanity from the cataclysm. But then why
didn't he come along in physical form? Hmmm again. Perhaps Typhon
thought he had a few thousand years, and the "Long Sun" ship was an
experiment. If so, he must be quite peeved by the information his
telemetry is giving him...
