Re: It's just a talk, Lieutenant.
Markus shakes his head a little, still showing no real expression.
"His, Lieutenant? Last time I checked we had a female Kilrathi pilot."
Three pilots walk in close formation past them straight to the Vampires. One of the Colonels quickly turns around to give a quick salute, only to be answered by the same gesture from the Commander.
"Take your sister squadron, Dracula's Finest, for example. Do you know how many times they have protected eachother, not just from external threats but also from brass?"
One of the technicians wheels out a black box from one of the fighters, which has a visible transponder stuck on it.
"Just so you know, we always have our eyes out there, and unless there's literal godly intervention preventing a signal from coming through, we know what's happening. What Lieutenant Lafayette did was wrong. But did you *really* have to tell me about something which, coincidentally, saved a whole lot of lives? Defying assignments isn't good, going against your squadmates is worse."
