Voice of reason/Schroedinger’s Kat/ – Katherine ‘ConV’ James Reporting
I really don’t know what the brass is thinking. It’s bad enough the 5.7 is on the Twilight of the Gods but now all the scientists, technicians and mechanics who are reverse engineering her are now all nicely stationed on the ship of questionable stability.
All it takes is one leak and everything and everyone involved will be lost. I tried to say something but the two techs who’d taken apart my Gumbo pointed out that keeping everyone here means fewer rumors and conspiracy theories to deal with.
They obviously do not know the rumor mill and I’m sorry— what they’re doing is only going to generate more conspiracy theories than there already are. In the absence of truth, rumors and theories are all we have.
Add to that a healthy dose of ‘We don’t know’ and what you’re really saying is ‘we don’t want you to know.’ That’s human nature 101.
Needless to say, I’ve been once again banned from the hangar bay.
