Half A Life: Why No Successor For About To Die Timicin?
From firstname.lastname@example.org@21:1/5 to All on Sat Dec 9 10:19:53 2017
The Kaelon sun is dying. Timicin of Kaelon II and the Enterprise fire photon torpedoes into a similar star to rejuvenate it, but it explodes. Timicin must now return home to commit suicide in accord with his planet's custom, as he is almost 60. The
Science Minister says that it will take awhile to choose a successor. Given that everyone KNEW that Timicin was going to die soon, WHY HADN'T A SUCCESSOR ALREADY BEEN CHOSEN????? Why didn't his deputy come with him to the experimental site?
