When we left Deneb, I planned to go looking for you - try to figure out some way of making contact that wouldn't cause trouble for you. Before I could do that... well, it's my own fault. I was so angry at Vision for what she and Zaeed did that I didn't preflight my Valkyrie properly. One of the Cochrane coils had some microfractures in it from my fight with the Blue Suns, and when I went to warp speed, the engines went into a cascading imbalance. We went over the high side. Ended up in a parallel dimension, which is where I've spent the last 24 years your time, nearly 40 for me.
Something has bugged me about Correspondence/Starcrossed/Split-Infinitive.
In both Star-Crossed 10 and Split-Infinitive, Gryph gets hit by fire, which is what causes the malfunction. In Correspondence, he just hadn't pre-flighted his valk properly. So, uhh...which was it? And why the discrepancy? (Totally willing to accept "He forgot in the intervening 40odd years" as an answer.)
