Topic: Persephone Gatwick Spaceport

24 hours had passed since the meeting. The crew of Kvant had eat, slept and done other things. Maczarek had spent her day trying to sort out the issues regarding a man who had suffered a fatal heart attack when the Smelly Cats squad had broken up a row between him and a waitress. Issues that threatened to involve lawyers.

****
The bare metal hull of Kvant gleamed in the morning sunlight as it stood on Pad E4 in the executive area of the spaceport. Maczarek Security maintenance staff, dressed in their brown coveralls, were making final checks to the spacecraft before it took off.

One of them was inside the large starboard intake, checking over the blades that would provide the thrust for atmospheric flight. When dealing with a pig like Kvant, you needed all the thrust you could get to make Mach 32; escape velocity for Persephone.

Sarah Chu opened the door from the terminal and stepped onto the dry arid heat of the pad. The wind was picking up and there were likely to be sandstorms later in the afternoon. They'd need to leave by 1pm, when local airspace would be shut down.

She turned to Quinn, who was now their new CO.

"After you, sir", she said.

The sir was new to Quinn, that is, being on the receiving end. All the same Quinn liked formalities, it helped keep everybody in check. Quinn nodded to Sarah before stepping aboard.

He turned and addressed the crew as they boarded, "let's get her prepped for take off," and he looked to Angel, "Angel, get her warmed up and run through pre-flight procedures," then he addressed Sarah, "Sarah, take a look over the engines one more time," he said, wanting to take all precautions. He turned around and walked to the bridge.

"Ya whatever Q-Ball."  Angel said uninterested in the least but started to make his way towards the bridge.

OOC: Too easy - Sliders, one of my favorite 90's shows! I actually was raising the notion of making a Sliders sim back in the summer, but I got no response...  hmm
