“Sorry about that I should have asked before taking control of our body.” Said the voice in Will’s head, “its okay but next time make sure I’m not standing when I get control back okay.” Said Will under his breath. He walked over to the engine’s main console and began entering the new system upgrades that it would need to run without ripping the ship or the engines apart. As he did, Alin walked over to him “How is it that you know so much about these engines, I don’t even know that much so don’t tell me you got it from me.” Asked Alin as he watch Will reprogram the engines, “Well I didn’t get it all from you. My brothers always showed me different things and told me many things on how everything works but I never really understood them. But ever since the merge I have started to understand some of them, I know the being I merged with has so much knowledge on the engines that came before these so when I gained your knowledge it completed the picture and became so easy to do understand after that.” Will replayed.
The captains voice came across the intercom “Dropping out for cool down in 5, 4, 3, 2, 1” as he hit one the ship pulled as it dropped out of the Jump. The captain continued to explain what Will and Alin would be doing as he did the ship jerked. The ship was caught in the gravity of the star of the system they were in. It would slingshot them across the system in three hours. “Alright while you reprogram the engine I will get to work on getting the engines main drive to class three and ready for the second core.” Said Alin as he walked behind the engine.
As Alin worked, on the engines Will reprogrammed the engines and their controls to allow them to work at a higher leave. Within an hour, he was done but that was only the first part he had to reprogram the ships control system as well. He headed out to the ships cockpit and went to work reprogram the whole thing; he even redid the design of the controls so they were more to the liking of the navigator.
The three hours of cool down went by very quickly as the ship’s crew worked as fast as they could to get everything ready for the new upgrades. The last planet in the system slowly pasted by them as the navigator locked in a new course. “Listen up everyone we don’t’ know what the upgrades to the ship will do so everyone strap in it might be a bumpy ride.” said the captain as he strapped himself in for the ride, “Brace yourself lunch in 5, 4, 3, 2, 1…”
The ship jerked and everyone was pinned to their chairs as the artificial gravity for the ship compensated. The captain’s voice came back on the intercom “it will be a few minutes before the second core kicks in and…” He was interrupted as the ship lunched forward once more. The gravity-core had kicked in. The captain looked over at Will who was unstrapping himself from the seat “How long do you have till we reach the planet?” asked Will as he got up out of the chair. “I don’t believe this but the system is showing that we have 20 hours left.” Said the navigator, Will just looked at him with his normal smile as he walked back to his room. Once he closed the door, he began talking and as he did, the other Morfean showed itself.
