Sweet, that's a nice little pickup. It doesn't mean huge changes to things overall, but it's always nice to flesh out the Grey Knight story a bit. Especially if it leads to the question being asked as to whether the other seven founding members are similarly disposed protecting critically important areas...

The storyline also does an excellent job adding to the tragic and confused storyline of the DA.
Grimdark indeed.

The White Zone is for loading and unloading only. If you have to load, or if you have to unload, go to the White Zone. You'll love it... it's a way of life.

Nick Naylor: Cigarettes in space?
Jeff Megall: It's the final frontier, Nick.
Nick Naylor: But wouldn't they blow up in an all oxygen environment?
Jeff Megall: Probably. But it's an easy fix. One line of dialogue. 'Thank God we invented the... you know, whatever device.'

Considering what Fabius is up to in Black Tide, then we know he got plans, big plans. And -this- might just be the bits he is missing to fulfill it. And yes, Abbadon namedrops Fabius as part of his scheme during Pandorax, even if never appears.

It gets worse when you read between the lines, not just the book but also the afterword, and it becomes obvious just who Epimetheus actually is.

Actually you can't argue that. How would Abaddon even know that Loken was a part of that group if he believes Loken died at Istvaan? I think he met Loken again, and what followed is obvious.
