An Eventful Month is the third chapter of The Deathworlders by /u/Hambone3110.
Terri Boone and Kevin Jenkins' roadtrip has snowballed into a large convoy of alien abductees. Terri finds herself unable to ignore that their experiences all corroborate each other's and takes special note of Hazel Naylor's notes and sketches.
Meanwhile in Canada, a new facility for extraterrestrial research has been established in the small town of Scotch Creek, BC. General Tremblay and one of the researchers, Captain Claude Nadeau, test a prototype of more powerful variations of kinetic pulse weaponry. Although they conclude that electrostatics are effectively worthless in weaponry, their research has yielded the secrets to other applications such as forcefields and advanced electronics.
Meanwhile at Capitol Station, Councillor Kirk is lamenting the political climate within the Interspecies Dominion when he receives an invite to Councillor Vedregnenug's private garden aboard the station. While discussing the rare Earth flora behind one of the containment fields, Vedreg reveals to Kirk that in a narrow vote, the entire Sol system has been quarantined using a system containment field.
- Two major updates have been made to this chapter reflecting the more concrete canon from later in the series:
- Terri's descriptions of the aliens in Hazel's sketches was totally reworked; the revised version includes descriptions of Corti, Vzk'tk, Rrrrtktktkp'ch, Kwmbwrw, Qinis, Locayl, Mjrnhrm, Allebenellin, Guvnurag and Hunters (in that order) as well as descriptions of Dizi rats, Gricka and Vulza.
- Kirk's contemplations on the member parties of the Dominion was also revised, now mentioning the Corti Directorate, the Grand Houses of Kwmbwrw, the Rauwryhr Federation, the Chehnash state and the Clans of Gao.
