8.12 - Short one

Jan 11 2012 Published by under Chapter Eight

“Thank you for deactivating your weapons,” Tour Guide said. “And don’t worry. Our relationship has not been damaged. I still consider you a friend. Besides, as I said, this section of the facility is completely uninhabited.”

“And if I were to resume firing?” Trak asked.

“I would have no choice but to say, ‘Please do not activate your weapons in the hallway.’”

“… nothing more?” Trak said.

“I suppose I could increase the volume of my voice.”

“That wouldn’t work.”

“I know,” Tour Guide said, sighing. “It never does.”

“The station has no threat countermeasures? That seems ... ill-advised.”

    As part of my new year's resolution to update Stuck Station everyday, I'm posting this short post just under the Wednesday wire.

    I'll post a longer one tomorrow.

    Ill-advised maybe, but still good to know. But, Trak, the system will throw you out into outer space if you don't take the tour (or if it doesn't like you).
