Rocket to the Future! Part One, Chapter 5

  After the debacle on the Martian moon of Phobos, the crew settle down for a well-deserved round of performance reviews. Captain Major, surviving his latest bout with a bad batch of space gin, hands over responsibility to Commander Train, the Vanguard's First Officer, Science Officer, Weapons Officer, Engineer and Ship's Doctor. But why has Train sent Phil the Used Android off on a strange mission that utilizes Phil's little jets that we never knew he had? And why does the Commander want the crew to believe Ensign Zinn (from Detroit) is really a telepathic alien? And why do these RTF summaries always end with rhetorical questions? Tune in, turn on, and drop out for the latest adventure of the "Rocket to the Future"!
