Not sure; possibly.

No, it hasn't appeared. The ship was attacked by the Pfhor - the first time they'd engaged in ship-to-ship combat on purpose (as opposed to being bounced by defense forces while attacking a planet, as in The Vastru Encounter when the Eidolon took on their motherships). They were trying to take part or all of the Rayya's crew. Colonel Zorah and his people put a stop to that.

Just a calendric coincidence. I wanted the event and its aftermath to span a weekend in the middle of July, and that year, the Friday of the second weekend happened to be the 13th.

Thanks. That was probably the hardest work (although not the part that took the longest to do) of anything in this installment.
