Chess and Checkers: Identity 20The Satellite Hospital was a much grander place compared to the Dove, or even the Colony ship they had just destroyed. It was like living in Buckingham Palace after growing up in a condemned building—which the Dove had to be.

Scarface stared out a window down at the planet below. The Stryx had made it very clear they were to stay on the satellite.
