THE NULL SOLUTION = Episode 83
…that was 20 years ago, was it not? I am surprised you have your sanity…
“My friends call me Locutus,” Picard surprises everyone with his quick retort.
It is hard to catch an astronaut off balance.
“He’s messing with you Gussy. Good one Picard, I like your style!” And Roy means it. “Speaking of stranger than fiction, are Deke’s princess and her “child” in any danger by remaining on Earth?”
“No. It appears that water, oxygen and such are mutual environmental requirements, though I think Cerella is used to substantially more oxygen. That’s why it is fortuitous that you happen to have a hyperbaric chamber out here in the middle of nowhere…”
“I bet we could hop over to Mars, right damn now, and set up shop Crip!”
“Well, we are flying blind if we don’t. We need answers. We should provide answers before some amateur astronomer with a powerful enough telescope spots what’s going on and starts some video that goes viral.”
“We are keeping far too many balls in the air, son; some distant civilization is coming to get us – no one has noticed that Deke isn’t on the damned planet – And that’s just for starters.”
“Is that Joyner’s father?” Inquiring minds need to know.
“Yep Doc. And until Cerella plopped into your lap, we weren’t sure what happened to him… we didn’t even know where the hell Sampson and Celeste McKinney went.”
“The parents, ah yes, I remember now, but that was 20 years ago, was it not? I am surprised you have your sanity.”
“I may not after all, if I agree to let Gus take SEx out to Mars. For as many questions that you have helped us answer, there are as many or more we haven’t a clue about… like what’s behind the Martian reboot or that enigma wrapped in a riddle & shrouded in mystery that we have named Lorgan.”
“Lorgan… what… and Essex, huh?” J-L P would relate better to plain SEX.
