    Good Evening Mistress Garthyre *touches forehead*, Jack Daniels, Sol system, not that dishwater from the boonies, straight, ice, no lemon. When-ever you have a moment ma'am, no rush.

    *Takes a stool on the corner of the bar, in view of the door, hangs his old battered leather jacket over the stool and seats himself*

    *half-smiles*, It's good to be back.

    I was late to that particular party and it was not a pretty sight - I haven't actually posted in it yet. It's like all the kids at school who have to be heard first. "me me me" - that's not to say they have nothing to say, but it needs reigning in... I'll go back at the end of the week I think...

    As far as the mortals comment is concerned - I think that we're just a "significant" statistical sample the majority of chatter is very similar to these forums

    Have a Trumble bite lad, you interested in the garbage collection business?

    I'm glad I ain't in the DDF, to be honest... I'm just a dumb pilot.

    Mixed bag of news, gossip and amateur dramatics

    I've just noticed the Forum Names section of the Backers Webapp has been removed - for me anyway.

    I wonder how the whole 'Commander names approval' process is going? It would be nice if someone from FD dropped in for a lemonade and let us know. I wouldn't expect details, but general numbers - how many completed, how many left to do - would be appreciated. We'll only start imagining the worst, otherwise:

    SCENE Frontier Developments 1st floor, no furniture, the carpet covered with single sheets of A5 paper arranged in a neat grid. Enter MICHAEL BROOKES and INTERN

    MICHAEL OK, you know where the coffee machine is and everyone's biscuit preferences. They are your main priorities. We've got your mobile phone number should any of us need a drink. The only other thing you have to worry about is this. We call it the 'Field of Dreams' downstairs, and your job is to go through each of these pieces of paper and - *waves hands in air* - sort it all out. Make sure no two backers have the same Commander name, make sure there's no swearing, and make sure there's no Han Solo anywhere. That's going to be my name. We don't care how you do it, just do it.

    EXIT MICHAEL

    The INTERN stands staring across the room for some minutes, before a single tear rolls down her cheek.

    I'm sure it's not really like... that. Is it?

    Oh and today is the anniversary of the death of Reg Presley, lead singer with The Troggs - a popular beat combo from Earth, 1960's. Can we have a moment's silence, please?

    Thank you.

    When I found myself to be on a distinguished road, I was intrigued. Where does this road lead, and what will happen when I get there?

    Then it seemed that everyone else was on the same distinguished road, and the journey lost some of its lustre - if we're all on the same road then neither I nor it can be that distinguished, surely?

    Only now I find someone who has left the road and
    will become famous soon enough
    So the road does lead somewhere, but how far does it go?

    Now playing:

    Hello Garthyre, You're the owner of this joint right?

    I'm just looking around - got my own plans to open up a string of R&R sites along the frontier. A sort of franchise idea.

    The Franchise name? 'Restaurants at the end of space'. Specialised in serving 'Elite' real ale with Lavian brandy chasers.

    Got any tips for a fellow entrepreneur?

    Yes, it's getting very confusing wandering round the bar: "Hi, Commander, what's your name?" *mumble, mumble, not sure yet mumble*

    By the way, do you have a Bell's whisky? It doesn't seem very popular round here?

    What? Why has it gone quiet suddenly?

    So... I found this neat old holo picture in my hold and thought it'll look kinda nice in here.

    *Hands over a limited edition holo print of The Liberator*


    Looks familiar somehow... doesn't it?

    Also I couldn't help to overhear much talk about the Name sorting process...
    I heard they went from Sheets to Post its™
    *chuckles*

    And I'll have the soup... NO WAIT! The Space Müsli!
