Shaun Newton was tired. Here we go again, he thought. It was not yet over. Same procedure as last time. Coordination. Communication. Plans. But this time it was different. Two hours ago the Long range scans picked up signals. The High Hand was on the move. And the last two departments were just waiting for their evacuation. When everything was ready to safe the Science Department, the armies of the High Hand were aproaching their System. I always thought it was a bad idea to scatter the departments all around the place, Newton complained in his mind.
“Calling Science Department, do you read?”, he yelled into the comlink.
“Yes, we hear you”, the answer came right away. “This is Commander Aisha McClure. The enemy is approaching fast. What’s our time schedule?”
“No time schedule. We will be awaiting you on your Arrival. You may proceed as you wish. May the Flying Spaghetti Monster be with you!”
“Okay. Evacuation is starting now. Hope to see you soon!”
Shaun hoped that too.
