Novella set in Smith's Jani Kilian universe. It originally appeared in Jim Baen's Universe, December 2006 and has been reprinted in Ligthspeed Magazine, April 2016. In Smith's own words:

"The events in Incident take place about five years after Captain Jani Kilian fled the idomeni homeworld of Shèrá and about thirteen years prior to the start of Code. I wrote the story during a break in the writing of Endgame, the fifth and final installment in the series. I had always wanted to write a Jani story that was more of a straightforward adventure, with less emphasis on espionage, politics, and the sociological skirmishes between human beings and the alien idomeni. The Jani in Incident is solely focused on the day-to-day challenges of surviving and of avoiding capture by the Commonwealth Service. She has just landed a job as a documents technician for a small shipping company. A little downtime is all she's looking for, a chance to earn a few badly-needed dollars, and catch her breath. Yet even though she fears discovery and is reluctant to get involved in a troubling situation, she's unable to ignore a cry for help."
