June 2nd, 2552 I win? Yay me?
Guinea Pig/ Part-time mechanic/Canary in search of a coal mine, Kat James Reporting
It took several iterations of ‘The Gumbo is the only ship equipped for jump point travel’ before the brass accepted that the Gumbo was the ship that would have to go and find out what could be done.
It took a lot more to remind them that I’m the only one with any actual experience and that more ships could be built since time didn’t really matter. It took them a lot longer to accept that Fipps would have to come with me to explain what we were doing. Once that was dealt with, sending Tower along to keep us safe became just another point for them to plot on their graphs.
The Brass does love their graphs and charts.
I’m beginning to think there was lot more to the SOS than what they broadcast, not that the brass would ever limit the information we receive. That would never happen.
And I wonder why they think I’m dangerous. It’s not that I’m a convict, I’m not military – I don’t have discipline and I question everything.
