Looking from the Aegis’ bridge, John spoke to Tom. “Beautiful isn’t it, the net. Is it fully operational?”

“Yes sir,” replied Tom. “Ain’t nothing on that planet getting off without us knowing.”

“Good. Status of our search and rescue mission?”

“Teams fully employed. We expect contact within hours.”

“Thanks Tom. Alert me as soon as contact is established, I’ll be in my quarters. I want full A/V Tom. No unexplained static this time.”

Tom nodded.

“And Tom.”

“Yes sir?”

“We need the Null alive. As for the rest, use operational judgment. “
