I know, I know - it stretches believability. Yeah, this isn't your typical baddie ship. It's lost, bewildered and scared. I have to admit I feel sorry for it myself. But I won't say whether everything ends well for Zhar or not. Thanks, TM. Bluefin's bridge is somewhat larger than the bridge of an Oberth-class ship (think USS Grissom from STIII: "The Search for Spock"). But still smaller than a Connie - same basic layout but more cramped. Ah, nice bit of observation, TM. More on the 'passengers' later. Heh. For me as well. I still have to finish writing this brain-bender.
