Boy, it's been a while, huh?
Glad you haven't given up on this story.
Really like Aubrey here. Like many of his fellow starship captains, the man is not a born diplomat and it shows in that last segment. And yet he did a admirable job to keep his anger in check. In the end, strong words are exchanged, everyone's sorry, no harm has been done but the message has been received loud and clear.
Now I'm eager how he's going to handle these unwelcome 'refugees' once Intrepid
arrives at her destination. Don't let us wait another 7 months to find out, ok?
