Some see the temporal anomaly crisis not as a crisis at all, but as an opportunity to start over. Three individuals who find themselves now of a different species have embraced their altered selves and partnered with the faction they feel most at home with to give everyone the option to change their species—no temporal anomaly required. Who will take the plunge, what complications might arise, and what might they discover as a result?
