Oh, that sinking feeling and realization when one has lost.

          I’m wondering how the mice will be saved. Ruddock can either order the ship to have all the remaining mice get in one of the spacesuits, or have the foodsynth’s “recipe” saved off for later use on another ship. Or both.

            It’s now canon that tribbles were created by a mad Starfleet scientist to be a rapidly reproducing food source, so this is nearly the same as the origin of the tribbles. If they send over the mice, the Strib might be blamed for mice overrunning the galaxy, and people will start calling them stribbles. And the humans will laugh and laugh and laugh.

    And so the Strib plot is revealed. The only reason they parlayed was to delay and obtuse Ciara and the Spacetrawler so they could lie to Feenky and get him on their side.

    And they’ve set it up so that the “accidental” destruction of Spacetrawler can be blamed on a trigger-happy set of G.O.B. pilots. Leaving them simon-pure and able to escape in the confusion.

    I’m liking the Stribs less and less with every move they make. Congratulations, Christopher: You have created one of the most enraging races of villains in science fiction today. Quite an accomplishment. Now where’d I leave my 10-terawatt maser?

        But if you miss, there’s no effect whatsoever. No, I want a HOSEABLE beam that will cook the Stribs even in passing, not unlike leaving your lunch in the microwave accidentally set to cook it for 10 hours.

    Ah, but wait wait wait … Tesfay contacted Emily. Emily may have been approaching a fugue state, but I’m sure that Feenky would have called Emily to let her know that he’s found the criminals and is about to bring them in, if the criminals don’t start shooting.

    It might take another week of building tension, but I’m sure Emily will swoop in, Pottybot in tow, and interfere with the Stribs plans somehow. In the meantime, we can amuse ourselves counting non-existent mice and waiting for updates on the house remodeling and learning to use a home-made composting toilet. Oh, be still, my beating heart!

    And don’t forget to lay in a supply of the Quilted Northern Artisanal Toilet Paper:
