Captain Coloma of the Clarke is on tenterhooks awaiting the results of the review board, after she did major, irreparable damage to her ship by placing it in the path of a missile intended for the aliens Ambassador Abumwe had been sent to negotiate with. In the meantime, she and her crew have been given a really simple, boring task: ferry around dignitaries from Earth, in an aging vessel the Colonial Union is planning to sell them.
Simple and straightforward, until Harry Wilson figures out that these dignitaries aren't from Earth, at least not recently, and her chief engineer discovers a little surprise hidden in the ship's skip drive.
Another good episode. Recommended.
Again, I bought this from Audible.
