[SCENE: Realm spacedock, where ISS Pegasus floats quietly in a maintenance hangar.
Cut to interior view: Engineering. Lieutenant Cmdr. Ozymandias McCool and his engineering staff – which consist primarily of an overworked Jawa, three Ewoks and two pair of Bynars – are putting the finishing touches on installation of a new warp core.
The Engineering doors open and we see Admiral Darth Venomous and Captain Korrioth stride in, making a beeline for McCool.]
OZY MCCOOL (loudly): ADMIRAL ON DECK!!!
VENOMOUS: At ease. McCool, report.
OZY MCCOOL: Installation of warp core complete, m’lord; we’re performing the final quality checks now. We will begin testing and calibration in three hours.
VENOMOUS: Excellent, Commander, excellent. Submit a timetable for testing the new transwarp drive to the captain upon completion.
OZY MCCOOL: (nods) Aye, sir.
VENOMOUS: Korrioth, you will render whatever assistance the commander needs with fine-tuning the intermix settings. I went through enough wormholes the last time, understood?
KORRIOTH: Understood clearly, Admiral. (throwing a wolfish grin McCool’s way)
VENOMOUS: Without the painstick, Captain.
[The look of extreme disappointment & angst is written all over Korrioth's face.]
Denizens, I’ll be taking the Big Box down shortly to install a new SATA-type solid-state hard drive. Not that you guys will notice anything, but I’ll be slightly more incommunicado than usual.
