Doug ponders "OH we got ourselves a good one, you see Hab the signal didn't just stop the drone it tracked it's tracking device and destroyed it, odds are it'll know people are looking for it. How far was the signal before you lost it?" asked Doug "two maybe three light years the signal was traced... the JMC craft Blue Dwarf." Doug paced up and down "Right i'm back off into stasis release me the moment we are in within hailing range lives could depend on it, pray we're not too late."

Ships log: Star date:- Smeg Knows, Time:- Half past the end of Sketch's show at Parrots bar or in laymans terms late evening.
A while back Sketch 300 requested some data be removed from his memory. The classified data was removed along with uknown corrupted files. With the new space in his memory Sketch 300 added a back log of 20th century jokes and gags that he always wanted to tell. The show this evening went down a riot ( told him not to tell any jokes about the Welsh). End of Ships log on board computer Holly.
Who: Doug the Bounty Hunter and Hab.
Where: On board Capture 1.
When: A month after they lost Sketch's tracking signal.
"This is Hab to Doug we are with in hailing range of the JMC Blue Dwarf." annouced Hab as Doug made his way to the controle room.
"Ok Hab open all hailing frequencies in all languages including Welsh." ordered Doug "Hailing frequencies open ready for your transmission." replied Hab.
"This is Doug the Bounty Hunter calling the JMC Blue Dwarf do you copy?" Holly appeared on the screen "Who hails? Friend or Foe or are you just asking for directions?"
"Doug Katchum is the name and bounty huntin's ma game, now I wish to speak with your captain the lives of the crew could depend on it as I suspect you got a hostile drone hiding among yall." Said Doug.
"Sorry dude but Captain Crysler is indesposed at this moment in time, care to leave a message and I'll get him to contact you A.S.A.P."
"Look as I said a hostile assasin droid may be hiding on your ship now the sooner you let the captain know the sooner we can start evacuating the crew and catch this drone, you got 24 hours for your captain to contact me or me and ma pardner is coming aboard warrent in hand. Katchum out."
With that Holly goes to Katrina as he suspects the drone in question could be his old mate Sketch who is totaly obliviouse to his past thanks to Katrina, the clock is ticking 24 hours downwads.
>tag: Katrina, Holly needs you to get the message to the captain before its too late the last thing Blue Dwarf needs is a run in with Doug the Bounty Hunter.
