SF Drabble #33 “Flight 19 Finally Ends”

They’re calling them “Taylor’s Glow-worms.” The ambassador is neon pink and about a meter long. The full body CT scan he let us do shows that he’s mostly brain tissue. That was all we got before the UN whisked him away.

But the press has been all over Taylor. He says they treated him well over the years. The others died of old age, but Taylor’s spent most of the time near lightspeed. All he wants to do is get some new clothes and fly again. Though, he’ll have to get a new plane: the Navy has confiscated the Avengers.
