Freefall in color by many folks.


Florence: Good morning, ship. This is Gregor Thurmad. He will be coming with us.
Ship: Good morning, Captain Thurmad. I am operational on shore power. Port reactor is in standby, ready to start. Polywell reactor is ready to be drained and disconnected.
Gregor: Captain Thurmad?
Florence: It's an old ship. It recognizes the highest ranking human as the ship's captain.
Florence: As the only human on board, that's you.
Gregor: Then it is good that you are not hiring me for your crew. Starting off as captain leaves very little room for promotion.
