Tow Truck Driver/Gumbo Cook and caretaker/ – Katherine ‘ConV’ James Reporting
I’m not allowed to touch the new ship— they don’t even want her in the same compartment as My Gumbo. Aside from yesterday’s walkthrough— I haven’t gotten to see the ship, I can’t put her through her paces and man I want to.
I understand, there is nothing in the rule books for this, nothing to base policy and procedures on. The other techs have taken to calling them Gumbo 1.3 and Gumbo 5.7. I know they’re just guessing but if the research team is right, the 5.7 has been on Dancer’s Retreat for at least 20 years.
I’ve read the report and the weathering of the landing gear is consistent with their findings but… A ship can’t be two places at the same time, and the 5.7 can’t exist before the 1.3 was built.
As it is I’m getting my information second hand and all I can get out of security is some excuse about temporal anomalies. But I can’t seem to get them to understand that the anomaly is there whether I work on her or not.
