The Last Leg

Shake Down Cruise
Location: Long Range Shuttle
Zen was exhausted. The older shuttle had an auto pilot but she stayed awake for most of the trip because she didn't have a choice. If something went wrong, there was going to be hell to pay. Still encased in the warp bubble, she was going as fast as she dared to meet up with the USS Zeus. She couldn't wait to send this hunk of junk back to Command so someone else could have a go. Closing her eyes for just a second, or so it seemed they burst open with the ship slowing down. Looking around, the shuttle was coming to a stop and just floating in space. Checking her coordinates she sighed. Three hours, she had been asleep for three very short hours.
Looking at the coordinates again, her sleep deprived brain not catching them the first time she sent out a sub space pulse to see if the Zeus was there yet. She was in the correct system, now it was just waiting time until her new boat got there.
