I swallowed before continuing. “We’ve got the long

range sensors back up. Tallis says it’s clean from here,

so we’ll need to go in closer. Permission to take us in?”

There was silence for a few moments before the captain

answered, less anger in his voice. “Start our approach.

I’ll be on the bridge in 5.”

I looked over at Tallis as the comm line shut off, and

he just shrugged his shoulders.

“You know how the captain is when someone wakes

him up,” Tallis said innocently. I rolled my eyes at him

before looking back at the controls.

“Well, here we go.”

“Everyone suited up?” The captain looked around at

the three of us.

“Sir, yes, sir!” Khalis said, grinning as he pulled his

feet together and straightened his back as his hand

came up to salute. He held this pose until the captain

turned his gaze back to him, and slowly lowered his

hand back to his side, his grin sinking simultaneously.

A momentary smile appeared before Lief spoke

again. “You know the drill. This is a normal investigative

operation. Get in, assess the situation, help fix

whatever is broken, and evac any wounded. Are we

clear?”

“Sir, yes, sir!” We all yelled out in seriousness.

The Captain opened the door to the airlock, and

stepped through. Khalis glanced at Tallis and I, and

shrugged before he followed after him.

“And the fun begins,” I muttered under my breath as

I climbed through and into the other ship.
