Lieutenant Artie Brink
Peace at last. We’ve docked at Plankton Station and Captain Hartman has awarded shore leave, so no one will expect me to still be on board. Two whole days to work on my new theory. Two whole days of not worrying whether to hide from the Captain in engineering or Ensign Ingensen on the bridge.
She just makes me so flustered. Bouncing up when I least expect it. Her ideas are great, but I can’t concentrate with her grinning at me all the time.
And it will be worse after we leave Plankton. At least while Ahashi was senior Ensign I could give him the orders to pass on. Now I’ll actually have to speak to her.
Why did Ahashi have to make that joke about still being able to get off the Special?

For a limited time, I'm giving away the first two books in the Bytarend Fantasy series and the Hard Vacuum science fiction series for free.
Bytarend is fast, fun fantasy that'll have you on the edge of your seat. Hard Vacuum is hard-talking, violent science fiction and my tribute to 80s action movies.
