The Emperor's Nose

by Tim Cassidy-Curtis, Solar System Ambassador

In 2992 I went back into space.
Me, a five-star admiral, assigned to a one-star billet.
Babysitting two starships.

His Imperial Majesty wanted manually operated doors in the Capital.
The thirtieth century! Who does that?

Rendezvous with my squadron was on February 29th.
...One week after my door's rendezvous with the Emperor's nose.
