"Yes, sir."

As the specialist entech left, Billingham took out his comlink and called the Mordrake.

"This is Billingham, please tie in the main computer – I'm ready to transmit this end."

There was a long silence. I have waited long. Very long. The silence has been broken. More have come.

Doctor Harry Collins, Space MD, had hidden away a copy of his medi-scans of the late Captain Blaine's body as it had been in situ in his cabin, as well as the detailed scans he'd taken of the crime scene earlier. Not wanting to take the risk of leaving it somewhere in the computer mainframe, where capable hands might find it and delete it, Harry chose instead to download it onto a crystal drive, which was physically small and easy to conceal. Of course, if the killer had turned to arson to cover up his tracks, that wouldn't put him above killing again for the same reason – and Harry didn't intend to have the data on his person if Death came knocking.

Like Lofflin, he too suspected someone in the entech department, and so he opted to hide it somewhere where most entechs wouldn't gain easy access to. That didn't leave too many options open to him, considering that most entechs – the mechanics of the Mordrake – had technical access to everything on the ship, so he went to the one place he knew an entech wouldn't specifically go looking… the morgue.

After that, people tended to gossip and before you knew where you were, you were getting blackmailed, accused of harassment or favoritism, and getting removed from the promotion list. No, not good. Not good at all.

But… but… Bennett was rather a slight young man, slim, not particularly athletic. Quiet, sensitive. Nice eyes that seemed to radiate life and emotion. His hands were nice too, sort of feminine in a way. Captivating, the way they moved when he spoke. Okay, so they were nice hands, and their owner was nice too. Lofflin shivered. He had to tear his thoughts away from this subject – it had been years since he'd been in a relationship and anyway, the last one had been a disaster of epic proportions! He didn't need a repeat of that episode! Bennett suddenly looked up, saw his stare and smiled nervously, before his eyes flickered to look away.

"You okay, Ensign?" Lofflin said, recovering.

"Yes, sir." Bennett replied tiredly.
