|Star Trek: Banshee Squadron episode|
|"Absalom West and the Hijackers"|
[edit | edit source]
- Explosive decompression was a nasty way to die, but it was the price they paid for their assumptions.
Story[edit | edit source]
No one believes West's outrageous story, and the crowd disperses. Quark comments how odd it was that an anonymous person turned in a Varon-T rifle to station security that morning.
Notes[edit | edit source]
- This story was written in response to a writing challenge I read on the Internet somewhere. The challenge was to write a story beginning with the sentence, "They say explosive decompression is a nasty way to die, but it was the price they paid for their assumption."
- This is the first Absalom West spinoff episode, and establishes West as a teller of tall tales. Or are his crazy stories actually true...?
- The canon Bajor system has eight confirmed planets. In non-canon, the Bajor system has fourteen planets. West claimed to be orbiting planet twelve.
