Commander Arral clapped Bast on the shoulder. “Ready?”
“You nervous, son?”
Bast looked back at his revival pod getting ready for him. “You’ll oversee the revival, right?”
“I wouldn’t let anyone else go near your pod.”
Bast nodded and smiled. “I’m ready.”
“Good boy,” Commander Arral said. “Now go die and save us all. Attaboy!”
Bast let out a cry and charged the advancing enemy.
“Are you actually planning to revive him, sir?” Captain Brega asked and followed Arral to the pod.
“Are you out of your mind, Captain?” Arral yanked all the cables out of the pod. “His pod malfunctioned.”
