SF Drabble #321 “S.S. Imperator”

It’s a kilometer walk from my cabin to the secondary reactor room where I work. Which is not bad, there are people who work in the control pits on the bridge whose quarters are more than twice that far from their posts. I guess the rear echelon types never think about things like that when they design these ships.

We’ve been on this hunt for eight weeks now. The Woolies have been on the run since 61 Ursae Majoris, but they’re still dangerous. A lot of people are worn out from the fighting; I’m just tired from all the walking.
