It certainly has.

Captain Zwif, happy fifty-second. It's been too long.

Dressing informally again?

A lot of protocol has gone to the forest since we're all that's left.

You remember Skua, of course. And Captain J'k and Commander Kae of the Victory.

Who could forget J'k, or the rest of our Command class? How've you been, J'k?

Eh... old age isn't all it's cracked up to be. What happened to your hair, Thrin?

I grew it. Makes me look more distinguished.

How have you fared? We had a run-in with the drones three months ago and actually destroyed one of their shipyards...

But Commander Kav won't be joining us because of that fight. This is Lieutenant Commander Chak.

A pleasure to meet you, sirs.

Likewise, son. Let's get down to the fight. Anyone have any ideas?

We used a decoy to lure drones to the wrong shipyard.

It probably won't work again, but maybe it can be used for other things.

We retrofitted the Victory with a Krelax-inspired hyperdrive. It uses TONS more power than warp drive, but they can't track it.

We can run it for about three hours before the radiation starts to cause problems.

At least that's longer than a Krelax attacker could stay in hyperspace!

Oh, WAY longer. And we're faster than them.

We can only do about fourteen hours a month without causing genetic damage, but the Krelax ships were... what, nine?

It made the permanent crews easier to out-think; they expected to die young in any event.

But these drones have neither the expectation nor the vulnerability.

We should put these innovations together.

Well, it certainly is a minimalist design. They look surprisingly good.

If we didn't have to worry about the drones seeing human design, I'd love to set Marie loose on them.

Ooh, so would I, Rob! Haven't seen much 3D from her, but I suspect she's just as skilled at that... and hull livery I know would be awesome.

Speaking of Marie, where is she?

Decorating.

Can you compile the series in a Comic Book then it will be easier to re-read sequentially.? Super job with it.:)
