Arrow 7th Transportation

Coat of Arms..

Duun cradling the Infant Thorn...
Battalion is a transportation battalion in the US Army first constituted in 1943.. The 7th Transportation Battalion participated in World War II, Vietnam and Desert Storm/Desert Shield..presented in the novel describes the first contact between the Shonunin and humans, which occurred when a damaged human probe with 5 crewmembers entered the Shonunin's home system.. The contact, however, turned violent.. It was not clear who fired the first shot, but the Shonunin, who had only recently put themselves into space, chased the crippled human ship for two years before overpowering it.. Having suffered losses themselves, the Shonunin killed all the humans aboard.. They knew the probe had been sending messages out of the solar system and the Shonunin, incapable of interstellar travel themselves, now feared retribution from the technologically superior humans..Scale of dragon, tooth of wolf, witches' mummy, maw and Gulf...


This is the first Imperial egg known to be dated.. Ruby red enamel was used only one other time for the Imperial eggs as Alexei's hemophilia was a constant worry for the family..Be bloody, bold, and resolute; laugh to scorn the power of man, for none of woman born..It commemorates the Imperial hunting lodge..

A Shonun, Dana Duun Shtoni no Lughn (Duun), was charged with the task of saving the Shonunin world from the potential threat the humans posed.. Duun's solution was to raise a human child to adulthood who could serve as an emissary to his race and hopefully prevent a major conflict when humans return to the Shonunin system.. Scientists cloned one of the dead human crewmembers to produce the male human child, whom Duun named Haras, meaning Thorn.. Raising a human in their midst, an alien and the enemy, sparked fear among the Shonunin, but Duun elected to undertake the task himself, uncertain whether the creature would turn on him...In genetics and developmental biology, somatic cell nuclear transfer is a laboratory strategy for creating a viable embryo from a body cell and an egg cell.. The technique consists of taking an enucleated oocyte (egg cell) and implanting a donor nucleus from a somatic (body) cell.. It is used in both therapeutic and reproductive cloning... Babylon Project was a dream given form.. Its goal: to prevent another war by creating a place where humans and aliens could work out their differences peacefully..It's a port of call, home away from home for diplomats, hustlers, entrepreneurs, wanderers and witches, all alone in the night.. It can be a dangerous place...
