Spencer bound through the ship; running past Camil and Bailey as he headed for the flight deck.
"See ya, Baby." He smiled as he dashed around her.
"Spencer?" She stared after him in surprise. "What?"
Within minutes, he was dropping into the co-pilots seat.
"Status?" He began punching in commands on the console.
"We're at thirty percent thrust capacity." Tater responded.
"Coolant system is a little slow." Spencer stared at the various readouts on his panel. "Increase very slowly to forty five percent capacity."
"Aye aye." Tater nodded curtly as she pushed up a portion on the throttle keys.
Spencer switched his screen to the long range scanners.
"Only one ship I know of that is that big." He snorted with disgust. "We may be in trouble."
"Not us, Daddy. Tater glanced over with a confident grin.
"Copy that." Spencer looked back to his daughter. "We can handle anything if we follow our nose."
"Two Shooting Stars that can't be stopped." She giggled. "Eta to the rock field; Nine hours and fourteen minutes at current speed."
"Coolant system is just under the red line." Spencer readjusted his screen. "And steady. Hold on that."
"So what now?" Tater leaned back in her seat.
"I am back to Engineer." Spencer shifted the seat arm rest out of the way as he slowly rose from the chair. "Keep us running straight and true."
"I got this, Mr. Engineer." She made a salute with her right hand. "Get me some more power from those engines."
"I'm on it." Spencer winked as he headed back.
