Exploring Destiny

"Okay, gang, here are today's team assignments." Riley silences the crowd in the mess hall with a stern look.

"On the Destiny exploration team: Lt. James, Cpl. Marsden, Airman Rennie, Dr. Fisher, Chloe Armstrong."

"Oh no," Chloe yelps. "Not the exploration team!"

Everybody looks at her in utter bewilderment.

"Please," Chloe sobs, throwing herself at Riley's feet, "I'll clean the bathrooms… I'll take the trash out… I'll peel purple sweet potatoes for 16 hours straight… anything but the exploration team!"

Riley blows her a kiss and shakes his head.

Chloe throws up her arms and storms out of the mess hall, wailing, as everyone stares after her openmouthed.

Finally Nicholas Rush jumps up and hurries after her.

"Are you all right," he asks, deeply concerned, as he catches up with her at the end of the hall.

She laughs.

"Of course. I love being on the exploration team. I just thought I'd shake things up a bit. We need some easily manageable drama around here."

He smiles at her.

"A bit of theatre?"

She nods.

"Always nice."
