The Limit of Tolerance
by J Alan Erwine
The crew of the Astrid has been pursued all over the galaxy by the Lemec, who while not being violent, have shown that humanity in general, and the Astrid in particular, are not welcome. Now the crew of the Astrid has found a planet whose population is facing extinction, but the Lemec won't do anything to help them. Do they risk war, or allow a species to die.
