Re: Whatever happened to Starship Exeter?
from "The Atlantis Invaders".
(half to himself)
How many interviews is that? Thirty?
Cutty rubs his eyes tiredly then goes for an obviously untouched tray with a carafe and cups. He pours a cup of steaming black coffee. Boy does he need this--
A BEEP from the viewer on the desktop just before he can pick up the cup. He punches a button. The viewer activates.
He smiles and raises the coffee to his lips...
Muffled sounds of phaser fire from outside! Cutty's dropped cup spills as he jumps to the window and looks down. There are flashes from outside and more phaser noises. The Yeoman reaches the window just as Cutty bolts from the room.
