Ohmigod, McGregor. Whatever scheme can he be up to? Don't answer that. His back and forth with the Commodore is golden, naturally. His noting of Judy's unhappiness. But him asking for porn and scheming with Stan is, of course, my favorite part of the chapter.

Oh, McGregor, you dog. So we meet McGregor meeting the commodore again and, much like before, the two are not entirely sure which way to divide the blame pie. McGregor is more than willing to blame the commodore and his damned starbase for their lack of security (which, again, I don’t mind) but little acceptance for the blame falls on himself (McGregor’s MO so far: blame others, not himself). He’s the captain so he has to take some responsibility, even if he is from 60 years in the past (which I’m dying to know more about).
The two briefly showdown as McGregor tries to convince the commodore to give him a new travel pod, which I figured the commodore would do gladly. But, he surprised me (and McGregor it seems) and completely said no to the idea. I find that kinda admirable for the commodore, but he’s not exactly know for having a backbone so perhaps a random outburst like that might just keep people from taking advantage of him too much.
McGregor’s interactions with his fellow captains seems to indicate he’s not well liked among the rest of his brotherhood. Asking about a porn shop in the Starbase … come, McGregor, you know you would have found one there already with how often you visit.
The last parting scene where he ignores Judith (perhaps some feelings?) and then goes to the hanger deck (he’s stealing something, I swear it) is golden.

What on earth is McGregor up to now? He gave in to that way too easily for it to be real. I can't wait to see what he has in store for the Commodore next!
Oh the usual ...

Ah, coming up on departure. I squee everytime I see Stanley now. LOL! Your little mystery guy has become quiet popular all of a sudden, hasn't he?
heh heh. That's cool. I squee too. And departure is imminent. Please secure all hand luggage. Take note of your nearest exits. Lifejackets are under the seats. And please don't pester the air hostesses.

The character of McGregor is great! A real maverick, and funny, as well. Great job with the story, overall.
Thanks a million. I love writing McGregor. As maverick and funny as he is, McGregor is quite close to the edge and that makes him real fun to write. It also allows lots of other interesting things and people to be around him. Thanks for the review.
