83-Valkyrie’s View: A Year Among the Stars

March 23rd, 2552 There’s an Acronym for that
Tow Truck Driver/Usual Suspect/mechanic’s apprentice/ – Katherine ‘ConV’ James Reporting

Well, the squad did not return with the find, but two pilots did, looking for extra grapples and repairs to their ships where the grapples failed.

I should have been allowed to work on it. I’m qualified to work on it, and if it’s being towed… I should be able to tow it- but that would involve bringing another ship there because of course— no FTL, or as I like to call it, ‘not quite faster than light but better than ground speed,’ but NQFTLBBTGS is never going to catch on.

I ended up coming up with acronyms to keep myself amused. By the end of the day, half the mechanical staff was with me. Some of the better acronyms we came up with included:

NAFLT – Not Actually Faster Than Light
FTR – Faster than Rumors
NQC – Not Quite Crawling
KTITD/KTD – Keep Them in the Dark
NTSH – Nothing to See Here
REAL – Rumor Enhanced Actionable Logistics

They should know by now not to keep too many smart people bored in one area… and still, I am watched.. Hopefully tomorrow, things will get REAL.
