this image begins in science fiction ... the fantastic voyage, darkly imagined ...

They asked her to be commander. She walked onto the bridge and they were there, all the senior officers, and they told her that the vote had been unanimous, that they wanted her to lead them. But she had no reaction. She could only stand there, very still, looking out over the remains of the Caspian and the Long Love Lost, at the things that would never be commanded by anyone, ever again.
