Well, Nelson made
contact with the girl who hadn’t seen hide nor hair of the Skip in all that time, and when they went to the beach, the
girl was abducted and Nelson was almost killed by somebody shooting at him.
We kept looking, and
finally found that damn city that Nelson was sure was behind the loss of those
ships. We fired on it, even though we knew the Skip might be there. No more than a few minutes later, guess who shows up at
our back door, but Crane, and the girl!
Finally, after he
took her home, I managed to corral him into Sickbay. After guzzling down some hot joe (against my advice), I saw he got himself
beat up and after I checked his eyes, he admitted they’d knocked him out as well. The concussion is minor, and he’s
no longer in danger, but is it my imagination or the Captain Crane a trouble magnet?
