To the TECN Jens Handsli, Nathanial Jaltwthe Commanding
From the Offices of the Trader Emergency Coalition Solar Fleet Headquarters.
Affirmative. Good luck on endeavor Jens. One adjustment to proposed course of action necessary: Initiate full colonization efforts as soon as possible. All Protevs are to be grounded and participating in the colonization efforts within four E-days.
I'm fine, thank you. I have actually transferred my command staff to the Achilles in orbit. I know you'll have a few choice words for that. But, like you said, I love my ships too much. I helped design them. Hell Nathan, they even have my name.
I'm glad to help your crew. God knows the Jens needs her time off, if just to help her arthritis. You need the time too, my friend. You've been going nonstop since you took command ten years ago. At the ripe old age of forty one, Happy Birthday to you incidentally, you need time off too. Unless you're me, of course. I do believe I have two years of leave accrued, save for the fact that the stone faced bastards who wrote the Navy regs only allow you to have a maximum of two months at any given time.
Still watching the sky,
