Is this story written somewhere to read?

This is where i thought you (she) was coming from. There IS value in being upfront and honest with superiors. He also asked for "permission to speak freely" so Palmer kinda asked for it. Still, even with his honesty she could have overrode any personal value Mitchell expressed for the sake of unity and command.

So he better be awesome and back up those words with action or hsi crew quarters may end up on the other side of the hull.

Heh, not really, but you know what I mean.

For my crew, Sierra 2 ... and that rhymes!
