The Power error

Today, I want to give credit to the people who helped with the upcoming story. First and foremost is 1071-CCN who came up with the idea of doing a "Guess who's coming to dinner" story with Winston and Florence. RockDoctor, who quickly enlightened me on the impracticality of using an asteroid as a base station and that solid beams would last longer than cables in a bola design. Frank Harr with ship design and a lot of other bits, and Peruraptor who pointed out that I had my power wrong. I mean, really wrong. Rather than bore anyone here, there's a link below the comic I can bore you with. The good thing about making mistakes is others can learn from them, after they finish laughing and pointing at you. And again, to Winchell Chung of the Atomic Rocket's Home Page, where you can find just about everything for making the physics of space travel work.

There once was a captain named Sam, who loved living life on the lam. He expanded his crew past the old score of two, so his space-ship wouldn't go BLAM! By 1071-CCN

Sam: Am I too late to steal the credit?
Florence: Are you taking credit for the mistakes as well?
Sam: You're right. A good captain shouldn't take all the credit. You can have that part.
