Can someone post a tl;dr please?
Because god damnit, that is tough to read.
It's mostly a conversation between Jovian Face Dancers and the use of nanite-implants that allow capsuleers to do things like calculate non-causality violating eigenvectors in a closed timelike space powered by a substance called QE 4-He which can only mined on a single desert planet which is the product of an indigenous species that converts it from water and which can grow to a prodigious size.
That's Dune, dammit!
TL;DR? Alpha Clones and Project Discovery are actually part of a conspiracy to fight Drifters. Two spais with memory backup and an internal security guy died to bombs in a bar to bring us this information.
Also, bombing or no, the Ritual Suicide of Very Powerful People must go on.
