Commentary for September 3, 2020:

In the original version of this story back in 2003, Davis did not come quietly and even ordered his guards to fire on the people who’d come to arrest him. They refused on the basis that he had already been relieved of command in a scene reminiscent of (or, rather, lifted straight out of) the penultimate episode of season 4 of Farscape. Now, at the time, I had no long term plans for Davis. Frankly, I could have just as easily had him killed off, but I think I chose instead to have him arrested against the possibility of one day bringing him back as an antagonist, which I did eventually. And, spoilers, he will be back in this remake eventually, too. But given that I know the circumstances of his return and the nature of whatever shadowy group he is involved with, having him surrender quietly to the Congressional Guard makes more sense than the temper tantrum he threw in his original incarnation.

This next scene with Samanfur also wasn’t in the original version, but I felt it was important to include it as part of this denouement for reasons that will become clear with tomorrow’s page, though I expect my readers are savvy enough to guess where this conversation is going.
