As the side hatch of the Black Ambition opened, Jasper was about to move forward, but Emily restrained him.

  "The commander thinks we're stationed here," she bugged him authoritatively. "We'll cause suspicion if we now board the ship. We will wait until it gets very quiet."

  "But I've burned the authorization panel! It's entirely possible that ground forces are transferred to the air." Jasper bugged back, annoyed.

  Emily did not respond to this. Eventually, when the transfer of personnel to and from the Black Ambition had completed, Jasper lasered the appendage tank and set fire to the spacecraft. Immediately, the evacuation hatch opened, revealing a row of shiny craftettes. Before anybody else reacted, the group of three took this opportunity to vault into the evacuation chamber.

The End
