First of all shame on all you readers who failed to not the new blog description on the top that is the rebranding of the blog...especially after I spent and unconscionable amount of time on it compared to doing something useful like fighting world hunger, Ebola or Russian incursion into the Ukraine.
The Eldership de-I, newly commissioned by AgeFleet Command, has been assigned a complicated diplomatic mission as its first assignment. This will involve bringing together a number of representatives of different systems for a great celebratory event. It will require the crew of the de-I to handle a wide variety of customs and mores and really tax our logistical capabilities. However my executive officer, Wife and I are confident in our ability to prevail.

I happen to look recently at the standard crew requirement for an AgeFleet Command Eldership. It calls for a full compliment of five hundred and seventy one. On the de-I there are only Wife and I. That's two which is a bit less than five hundred and seventy one. Makes one wonder what kinds of politics go on in the AgeFleet Command bureaucracy.
