August 1st, 2552 – Full Debrief
Pilot/Witness and sometimes Target Kat “S-Kat” James Reporting
I’m thankful that the powers that be gave me some time to recover before debriefing me, although talking to Druckab was interesting at best. He still doesn’t quite get the whole unarmed bit when it comes to my status in the fleet. I mean he knew I wasn’t exactly expedition material, but he felt that made me an asset.
Now he sees it more as a liability because, in his world, I have ruined the balance of things. I’m not sure but I think in his reality I started the war that led to the ultimate battle between the Parataph and the View Project.
He did find it interesting when I explained that I’m a getaway pilot, not a fighter pilot and that took some more explaining, but it also led to several conclusions on things we need to work on in the fleet.
The civilian pilots need survival training, as taught by the military, the military pilots need to be taught getaway tactics, not to be confused with escape and evade, which is something we all need to work on and expand our options and from what I’ve seen all the pilots need to learn emergency mechanical repair.
So, we went to discover the universe and the universe taught us that we need a lot more training to get it.
