The NULL Solution = Episode 151
…To Chasonn’s dismay, there has been no sign of the notorious Lorgan; perhaps on the return trip…
From Skaldic on Eridanus, to Seljuk, and Chasonn; frankly, you can run a piece of paper between them.
They are both curious sorts and that trait is leading them down similar paths. While Skaldic will not let the Martian gateway quandary rest, Chasonn is losing sleep. He has that left-out feeling, having contributed technology to NASA and spied on Collapsar Axis and receiving virtually no love for either.
So why not hop in your finest space cruiser and pay a visit to those wild & crazy Eridanians. Not! Skaldic maybe and Sammy Mac for sure! Collapsar has come and gone and there is nothing much going on in Seljukland, perhaps the most boring system in its galaxy. At least he would have some new tales to spice up his provincial life.
And what a great way to test out his particle transporter in the Milky Way, as well as promote galactic unity and maybe catch a glimpse of ⃝ along the way. The poor guy is running out of things to invent.
Soon, he is within hailing range of Eridanus, which he does. Some do not require the courtesy, but Sampson McKinney appreciates the heads-up. He is thrilled to rekindle the brief connection, one that never really got a chance to develop. At the time, Chasonn had his hands full and was all about Seljuk business. This trip is like a vacation in comparison.
To Chasonn’s dismay, there has been no sign of the notorious Lorgan; perhaps on the return trip.
“Chasonn you devil, what you’ve been up to?” Sampson has been a little bored his own self of late. The approach of a foreign ship is big doings.
He glosses over Sam’s slang to get to the heart of the matter, “I would like coordinates to your location for purposes of utilizing my particle-beam transporter.”
“Are you crapping me, a Star Trek transporter?”
Sampson is an expert when it comes to obscure cultural references. That is a barrier for quality communication.
