CHAPTER 24 - VINON
The Shannon arrived at Vinon its last mission complete. Half of the crew remained with the rest returning home. News had reach of the Alliances surrender.
The Shannon was docked in a space station orbiting Vinon. Alongside the Shannon were over two hundred ships all a mixture of military and civilian ships.
They were a mixture of transporters and agriculture ships which were distinctive with their large glass domes.
John looked out onto the fleet and it was scheduled to depart. The Shannon was being equipped with provisions to the Trequan nebula and everything from weapons to shelters, everything a new colony would need to survive.
He sat alone his thoughts dwelling on the burden of responsibility now upon him and knew he had come along way.
Commander Kyten was now in charge of the Danube promoted to Captain and both had said farewell. They had developed a close friendship and trusted each other.
The Captains new commander was a Lieutenant Jenvet a Moomat.
He was tall for a Moomat at five foot but was considered a genius and efficient capable of dealing with complex tasks which made him perfect for what was ahead. John knew he was perfect because he had lost his brother during the invasion of Uvonia fighting on the Dqet a Moomat warship.
The Captain walked to the bridge and sat next to the Lieutenant and signaled the fleet to make its way to the Trequan nebula.
