Pilot/Mechanic/Lab Rat – Katherine ‘Kat’ James Reporting
Daniels has decided that I need to focus on one thing right now and that is my project. He seems convinced that we are going to need to be able to scavenge parts, coble them together and make something we need. It makes sense since we have limited parts and until we can get the base materials, we’re stuck with what we’ve got.
There’s a forge and manufacturing equipment on Valhalla, but again, we’re dealing with limited supplies.
One thing I should say about having Mac help me— he’ll stop me from wasting parts – but he is not above letting me make mistakes so I can learn from them.
It would seem that there are a lot of mistakes that mean taking everything apart again and putting them back together in the right order.
After the 5th time putting together the maneuvering thrusters, he smiled at me and said, “I’ll bet that you will never forget the right order.”
I wasn’t sure if I wanted to throttle him or hug him. He’s not treating me like a crook, or a kid – he’s treating me like a Junior mechanic with a lot to learn.
