This week with Arlene and Jeff:
...The Chief Engineer assigned his best assistant to oversee the refining of the materials he would need to replace the parts that had blown, and to make certain that everything used in the new coil was made of fully refined materials, no matter how long the process took. My team and I will do this. They are learning and becoming more valuable to me almost daily. I must watch that bastard when he comes in here. He will not kill any more of my people. When he draws his weapon, I will end his days. If the First Officer has any sense, he will back me. Going rogue would still be better than having a tyrant killing crew just because the mood strikes him. But… I would rather go home a rich man.
Unconsciously, his hand caressed the small weapon nestled in his tunic. Maybe I will not have to kill him - maybe...
Have a goodun;
