Earth Station YB241 has recently welcomed a new arrival.
Capt. Wright, while commanding Space Outpost ZA430 on a small planet very much like Earth, had grown fond of the small planet's inhabitants, the Mworawi, and especially fond of one Mworawi female, Zenada. She was very intelligent and was able to learn English very quickly, and, as such, had been invaluable assisting Wright as a liaison between the indigenous Mworawi and the crew of ZA430.
Unexpectedly Wright was called back to Earth Station YB241 to settle a growing and serious emergency situation, arising, it seemed, from a number of "misunderstandings." Since Wright believed Zenada would make a fine addition to YB241, he wanted to take her back with him, where she could serve as a cultural ambassador for her planet, teaching and exploring her culture and inculcating an appreciation for cultural differences to the young recruits of YB241 who had not been exposed to the multitude of diverse alien cultures.
Unsurprisingly, Zenada was reluctant to leave her home and family, yet Wright eventually convinced her, with her conditions that she could bring with her some of her favorite items: a few "plants," her diminutive "comfort" companion, Yweeb, and the various minerals she uses for her body paint.
On their arrival, Wright had to leave Zanada and Yweeb at the receiving dock so he could immediately address the dangerous emerging situation. Here we see the near-human, exotic Zanada and little Yweeb waiting in the early morning sun, waiting with a growing impatience, for someone to meet them and to deliver them to their lodging.
A new uniform will likely be the first order of business.
Thanks for the view and for any comment you'd like to share. Appreciate your support.
