"Ha ha." Lofflin replied with mock sarcasm. "Keep your eyes open, please."

"Don't worry, I'll fire everything at them at the first sign of trouble, sir!"

Lofflin knew there were no working shipboard weapons left. So did Lt. Tan.

"And what will you fire at them?" Lofflin asked with mock-sarcasm.

"Harsh language, sir." Tan grinned. "What else?"

Lofflin grinned. So did most of the bridge crew.

"I'm serious, Fylip. Keep your eyes open."
