Chapter 205 - What Could Go Wrong[]


Thazi (Independent System)
26th June, 3045


"Sir, you have fax from New Avalon." Major Craig Dumont said from the doorway

"Really, and what sort of bad news does New Avalon have for me today" Major General (President) David Mitchell asked holding out his hand for the message slip. He quickly read the message.

To: President Mitchell
From: First Prince Hanse Davion

Congratulations on your election to President of Thazi. There are 4 Dropships waiting to be ferried to your location. Two contain special equipment and personnel for a certain grounded vessel I bought along with two carrying other items you requested via fax and a certain contact you have making purchases. The sooner those people can examine that certain vessel, the better we will all be.

"Really? I wonder how I am supposed to go get some Dropships when I have been cut off from maintenance support?" Major General (President) Mitchell asked no one in particular as he thought about his reply. He picked up a pencil and wrote on the bottom of the message slip before handing it back to Major Dumont. "Send that reply."

Major Dumont quickly read the short message. "This will go over like a lead balloon. sir."

"Send it anyway. Two can play this game." Major General (President) Mitchell said

To: First Prince Hanse Davion
From: President Mitchell

Thank you for the congratulations. My fleet is at a standstill due to lack of maintenance for the immediate future. If you want that certain vessel, you can haul those Dropships out here yourself. The only halfway operational vessel I have is tied up supplying you know where and it is a matter of time before it breaks down and they starve or go on minimum rations.

President Mitchell
