At the edge of the Tau Ceti system, Commander Thorian banks Starfarer through the upper fringes of a gas giant en route to a rendezvous with the Police Cruiser Albatross for customs inspection. Meanwhile, First Officer Pa-Kur accidentally ejects the cargo module and watches helplessly as it tumbles toward certain destruction below. When asked by the Captain of the Albatross why he didn't catch it with a tractor beam, Pa-Kur explained that the tractor beam was temporarily off-line for repairs (which had since been completed).
Those zany rascals! You never know what the crew of the Starfarer will be up to next!
