I have reached the tenth chapter of my new space opera story. Here is where things start to become more political. Political intrigue is one of the main themes of space opera stories since you get to see things from the point of view of interstellar governments. We get to see the political infrastructure of a planet as the characters prepare for an upcoming battle. The seeds of a serious plot twist have been planted. In addition, you will get more insight into the mindsets of some of the characters. Overall, this is a fun chapter to work with and I look forward to tinkering with it more.
