Gateway Essentials, Fiction, Science fiction

Captain Mond Aton had been proud to serve aboard the mighty ships of the Third Time Fleet. But now, falsely convicted of cowardice and dereliction of duty, he had been given the cruellest of sentences: to be sent as a lone messenger, unprotected, into time stream . . .

Captain Mond Aton had been proud to serve in such a fleet. But now, falsely convicted of cowardice and dereliction of duty, he had been given the cruellest of sentences: to be sent unprotected into time as a lone messenger between the cruising timeships. After such an inconceivable experience in the endless voids there was only one option left to him.

To be allowed to die.
