The Watch On Venus
I'm supposed to be 'Personnel
Officer' of this flying circus,
Not a bloody psychoanalyst -
the Grey really pissed me off today,
Laughing at me like I was some
kind of idiot, like he could read
my mind and found it funny.
I don't think it's funny at
all - Godfrey Philips was a valuable
asset who made a few mistakes,
is all. I don't consider having to
send the guy back to the Mothership
to be at all funny.
Okay, so he has an ego problem,
likes to be 'special' - impressing
the natives with our technology
just to show off was fairly typical,
but from what his crew have told
me, he pushed it a bit far, threatening
the locals with annihilation
by laser if they didn't fall to their knees and
call him 'Uncle' or something.
The end came when he killed
a couple of them with our toys.
I'll never know why he did
it, I didn't like sending him back, and I don't
like the way the Grey has that
smug grin on his silly, parched face.
I liked 'God', and I think I'll
I had to send Mo Johnson and
his team down to do some damage control.
Hopefully, Mo will be able to
talk the locals into moving out while we clean
up the mess and hopefully disappear
