Who: Efof, Callum, Kara, Jessie and Chrizla
Where: In the shuttle
When: After Jessie stated her suicidal plan
Efof looked up from his colouring book in the back and stood up with
his fists balled. "I'm with her!" He said excitedly.
Callum stroked the back of his neck in irritation. "I ... uh well I
don't want to be the voice of morality here.... as ... its me. But
isn't that one of OUR ships? We can't just attack them."
Efof thought about this and stood up again. "I'm with him!"
"And... the fact that they're a huge battleship with weapons... and
a well trained crew..."
Efof stood up again "I'm with him!"
"What about boarding them then. we can kick a bit of ass that way!"
Efof stood up "I'm with her!"
Callum looked slightly skeptical again. "Need I remind you....
biiiiiig battleship with lots of crew... only five of us. I say
steer clear and continue with our original mission."
"I'm with him!" Efof said excitedly.
"What about sneaking up behind their ship, disabling their engines,
and slowing them down a bit, allowing us to continue with the
mission." Said Kara, which for her was a very rational decision.
Callum nodded. "A good compromise. What do you say to that Efof?"
"Urrr... I say we should have decided earlier. They've docked with
us, come aboard and are now holding me at gunpoint."
