The Final Test

“Entering atmosphere, sir!”
“Helm – rotate the ship stern down so we can thrust out.”
“Can’t, sir. Attitude drive is offline.”
“Sir, impact in two minutes.”

Think, dammit. Speed. Momentum. MASS.

“Prepare all forward weapons, starting with the DU torpedoes. Target our projected impact site. Fire at will. Hotcycle the railguns.”
“Aye aye, sir.”

Now we hope.

“Captain, we’ve slowed enough for a Case Red touchdown in the smaller ocean. Computer estimates 74% casualties and total combat loss of the ship.”

The simulation switched off. “I’ve seen enough, Lieutenant. Your new combat assignment is as follows: One cream, three sugars. Go.”

You've never had Navy coffee.
