Nice! I'm glad to see our young lieutenant commander isn't willing to be won over by Macet too quickly. The good news: he and some of his comrades are alive. The bad news: they're trapped aboard a Cardassian warship, and it appears the vessel's Dominion contingent knows nothing about their presence. Set phasers to 'tenuous.'
Indeed--I think I'd be awfully confused and angry if I were in his place!!
I'd say Spirodopoulos is perhaps 40 years old...young when the human lifespan's been lengthened to 120 years, but not completely green either. Being on his own like this, though, is new to him. He had a captain on the Petraeus
, and on AR-558 I think there may have at least been a commander there.
