“Right in our line of sight to the planet,” Lyn said. “Ghez, can you document that for me, please?”
“Yes, Captain. Positioning is two sectors off contract.”
“Figures.” Lyn opened a voice link. “Endurance captain to the Aphrodite. Please respond.”
“Aphrodite here,” a low, possibly masculine, voice answered. “What can I do for you, Captain?”
“This is Captain Evelyn Randall. I hope you’re having a nice evening. I noticed you drifting into our sector. Please correct that.” Manners mattered, but she wasn’t going to ask, like it was a favor. Their ship was in violation.
“Good evening, Captain Randall. Third Officer Thomas Philbrick here. I’ll look into your request.”
The link went silent. Lyn drummed her fingers on the armrest, waiting, watching for any movement by the enormous ship. Anticipating her query, Ani shook her head. No movement detected.
“Endurance to Aphrodite. Please update your status.”
“One moment, Endurance,” Philbrick called back. “I’m seeking authorization to acknowledge the request.”
Lyn’s eyebrows rose. Ani also showed surprise. Who was in charge over there?
Minutes ticked by.
“Visual requested,” Ani said.
