However by this story's details so far it would appear that they're just big space-swimming extraterran animals/beings, without any Tear-Cracks-in-Reality spacedrives.

What I really dig is the subtle way a lot of the Mythos stuff fits in to the cross-genre setting; for instance, "vaguely-aquatic-adapted-spacers" thing is just common enough a trope in SF that it took me a few minutes to go "aha!" and notice the Innsmouth look in the gillies. Can't wait to see where we go next.
One tiny nitpick -- towards the beginning, Black Alice mentions that two-thirds of their profits go to keeping the ship alive and healthy. Isn't profit what's left over after things like operating costs and wages (upkeep of a living and seemingly-sentient ship could fall into either category)?
