When writing a story with a lot of named characters do not give secondary characters similar names. The Rangers on The Arrogant Lion are named Fenuchi and Fundowkoski. (Holiday and Verde as well, but they are easier to differentiate.)
The Engineering Tech is named Flavius.
This has lead to some confusion on my part and I am sure I have used Flavius and Fenuchi somewhat interchangeably even though Flavius is clearly the Engineer and Fenuchi has the additional task of being the ship’s medic.
Sorry for any confusion when reading the book.
