It's not over yet.
The crew watched the ship as it was being destroyed. Then the captain ordered a missile to destroy what was left. A young control officer who was flying the ship noticed someone run from out of the ship.
"Sir, WAIT!" Said the young officer, "I see someone."
"Not now,.... FIRE." Shouted the captain.
"Now what was it you were saying?" Asked the captain as it turned to the officer.
"I was just going to say that I seen someone running near the ship. But now it is to late." He said as he looked out the window as the ship blew up.
"It was probably just one of those THINGS." Said the captain.
"It didn't look like one...." He said. He was still looking out of the window.
"Sir." Said an older officer, "There seems to be someone down there."
"Where?" Asked the captain.
"Down there by the rock." Said the older officer.
The captain looked through the window, the smoke cleared just enough to see a body slumped next to a large rock. The sun glistened off metallic limbs. "It is just a droid."
"No it's not, Sir." Said the older officer, as he looked at a monitor.
"What ever it is has a life signature."
"Are you sure?" Asked the captain looking over the shoulder of the officer at a monitor.
"Yes, Sir." He said as he pointed to the monitor. "See here, it has a heart beat and a heat signature that isn't like a droid. What ever is down there, it is alive."
The captain looked back out the window.
"Sir, what do you want us to do?" Asked an officer.
The captain didn't answer, and the crew sat there and watched him. He looked like he was in deep thought.
He wasn't sure what to do. If left alone this thing would surly die. But if it did happen to live it may turn him in, and he didn't want that. He thought he could send down a group to destroy to body, but he, himself didn't like killing the innocent. He hated the Rodian's, because of what they did to his family. And Kloddo agreed to their destruction. So he would do the only decent thing he could think of doing.
"Land the ship." He said.
"You want me to do WHAT, Sir?" Asked the young control officer.
"You heard me." He said, glaring at him. "I said land the ship. You four will go out and collect that body, and take it to the medical bay." He said turning to other crew member
"Yes, Sir." Said all four together.
As then men left, the captain grabbed the young officer. "Don't you EVER question me again. When I say to do something it is done with a 'Yes Sir'. DO YOU hear me." He yelled to the officer.
"Yes, Sir." Said the young officer, and proceeded to land the ship.
"If you ever do that again, I will make sure you NEVER work again, UNDERSTAND!" He said just before he left the room.
"Yes, Sir. I completely understand, Sir. It will never happen again, Sir." He said, as the ship landed back on the ground.
By the time the captain made it down to the medical bay, the body was all ready there. He sent a message to the control room, to take off and head towards the destination point.
He looks at the body, it looks real bad. He askes the medical droid who was working on it. "Is it still alive?"
"Yes she is still alive, and she is stable." Said the droid and continued saying in its monotoned voice. "She is lucky that her body is mostly mechanical. That is what saved her."
"So she will live?" He asked.
"Yes she will. She looks a lot worse then she really is. The worst was this metal rod that was embedded into her side." It said as it held up a rod with one of its many hands. "It hit no organs. She does have some glass and metal fragments embedded into her skin on her chest and face. She also has severe burns to her back and side, And she has a large amount of blood loss. But she will make a full recovery with some time."
As the droid was speaking, the captain was thinking that he reconized this body. He took his hand and wiped the dust off her face. As soon as he seen blue fur he knew. This was Noel, the owner of Sky City.
Now what is supposed to do. Kloddo wanted her gone, and the Rodian's were supposed to do it. Now he had to dispose of the body. Just then the droid stopped talking.
"That's good." Was all he could say. He couldn't kill her, he had no grudge against her. He would think of what to do with her later. Right now she needed help. "Just do what ever is necessary to make her better"
