-- Tyrus Cassius McQueen
|The next day, McQueen informs his squadron that the Commodore has given them the thumbs up for the mission. He will use the Alien fighter as a Trojan horse to invade the enemy's home ground. He asks them to accompany him though he knows that this will be a very dangerous assignment.|
|All the Wild Cards agree to go on this mission
... all ... except for Cooper who keeps them in suspense by saying: I'm
not a kamikaze ...
And when the Cards throw him looks he adds: 'Cause I'm coming back!. The cards are relieved and burst out laughing ... even the Colonel showing a fleeting smile to relieve the tension.
|While the Cards study the specifications of the craft, discussing their mission, McQueen gets some disturbing news ... the flight window will close earlier than expected.|
|As Paul is making fun ... posing as McQueen working as a plumber, the Colonel walks in to inform his squadron about the changed plans. Only to witness the merriment of the Cards. He answers Paul's act with the dead pan comment: It's hard to follow a dog act!|
|The Wild Cards are informed that the mission has changed considerably ... ill prepared and not quite as familiar with the craft as they thought they could be in about a week, McQueen tells them that everyone can reconsider. No-one will be court-martialled if they decide that they won't take part in this kamikaze mission.|
