Perfection takes time.
There are Times, Sir, when men of good Conscience cannot blindly follow orders. You acknowledge their sentience, but ignore their personal liberties and freedoms. Order a man to hand over his child to the state? Not while I"m captain.

Other projects also eat at that time, I'm working on the Leviathan build, a Ferengi ship, trying to do a tramp freighter in the StarWars 'Verse along with the Seolkis build.

On top of that are the family comittments, house chores, exercising and trying to get a few new parts installed on my '09 Versys 650.

If only I didn't need to sleep.

If you didn't sleep- you'd find more things to bog you down with.

Nothing much to report, shaved off the impulse drive area of the saucer to prep for rebuilding it;
