[LMB] Regrets, Miles had a few.....

I wondered if one of Miles's regrets was not calling ImpSec when he went with
Tien, and Tien ended up dead.

But if Tien was alive Ekaterin would have gone back to him, out of Vor duty. And
I don't think she would have divorced him while he was in jail - which would have
lasted for a very long time. Plus even after the divorce she'd be the ex-wife of a
traitor. Tien dead was, if not a hero, then at least a fairly innocent figure in her
past. Tien alive and convicted was at the very least an embarrassment, and social
poison.  And with Ekaterin's sense of duty she'd probably have stayed with him
and never divorced. No marriage to Miles, no treatment for Nikki....

Nope, can't put that on the list.

Still thinking....
