A Plethora of Objectives

“Once this damned interview’s over, I’m living in boardshorts and neoprene. Perfect my volleyball form; snorkel; scuba dive. Turn my aluminum skiff into a glass-bottom boat; test my new impeller design. Take HUET training. Figure out how to turn custard into crème brulee. Overdose on polysaccharides. Fantasize about my Vulcan Surprise Package.”

The pain in the plethora of objectives was evident. Soval’s own culture took a rhadamanthine approach to such offenses as Lieutenant Tucker was accused of. Would Starfleet?

It wasn’t honorable to remain silent, when his testimony could exonerate an innocent man.

Soval’s course was decided.

He must testify.

Will Soval testify?

What will he say?

Will it be useful?

Any guesses?

I am myself. I own my life, and live with three other people who own theirs. My intention is to do only those things that bring me joy, and to give myself wholly to those things I do. Writing has been my passion throughout my life, and this will become the home for my writing life...because it brings me great joy!
