176-Valkyrie’s View: A Year Among the Stars
June 24th, 2552 – ReFit and RetroFit
Part-time mechanic/sometimes suspect Kat James Reporting
Today, I got to be a mechanic. It didn’t take Fipps long to figure out what needed to be done with the limiter – he actually had the plans from the scans we’d done of the 7.5 before it, and the Twilight of the Gods were destroyed.
Fipps said it was actually pretty easy once he figured out what he was doing, and then I made the mistake of saying “Hell, man, why don’t you just build a 1/24th scale of the Mark 7.5 – we have the 3D modeling.
I lost him for the rest of the day. The Brass, and more than a few Einherjar decided it was best that Druckab get acquainted with our systems and rules— yeah, their technology is leaps and bounds ahead of ours and I don’t know if they’re afraid he’ll figure that out or that we actually have some technology they don’t have, like the paper clip.
I don’t know, all I know is, I have a ton of ships to fit, retrofit and convert and I won’t be flying any time soon.
One of the problems with being multi-faceted, you can’t be in two places at once… only I can… just not yet.
