Chapter Twenty-One--Final Good-byes
"Captain Tuvok was one of the best men I have ever known. He was brave, strong and true. For five years he bravely ked us to victory against this harsh quadrant, and gratefully kept me from the Captain's chair.

Tom whispered to his long time friend, "Peace, my friend."
