Synopsis

Finalist, Asimov's Annual Readers' Poll

Mae, chief linguist on the Ivoire, heads a diplomatic mission to Ukhanda. Her handling of relations with the Quurzod lead to a battle that causes the Ivoire's anacapa drive to malfunction, stranding the ship in foldspace. Mae can't remember what she did wrong on the mission: all she knows is that she's one of the few survivors. If she doesn't recall it, she won't be able to prevent another disaster when the Ivoire escapes foldspace. If the Ivoire escapes foldspace. Because what no one talks about -- and everyone fears -- is that the Ivoire is becalmed... forever.

This standalone novella first appeared in Asimov's Science Fiction in April-May 2011. It has been collected in The Diving Bundle.
