After a year of mindless slutting around, Ensign Aaron Whelk finds himself in Captain Cain Woodward’s quarters, where he regains the best parts of his old self, and keeps all the best parts of his new self.
Ensign Aaron Whelk feels like he might be a bit in over his head, signing up for a three year voyage into interstellar space aboard the CSS Virile. He grew up in space and has always felt at home aboard starships, but here, on the Virile, he doesn’t quite feel like he fits in. His degree in warp engineering and slipspace astrogation aside, he feels like he has no idea what to do half the time. Thanks to a new friend, however, he learns that he really does have a place on the Virile.
