**Outside of the courtroom**

Leigh sighed as she glared at Arturo and approached him, crossing her arms. "Commander S'Rohass, what the hell was that about in there?"

Arturo's ears went back.

"No excuse, Captain," he said. "The inquiry board just brought up some bad memories for me and then Xiulan committed herself, and, well, I felt obligated to follow. And then Security moved in on her and, well, I may have gotten in over my head."

"This situation is fragile enough without having members of my crew speaking out. If I do it, it's on me and if you do it, it's also on me. The commotion in the court room didn't help my case one bit," Jacobs scolded before letting out a frustrated sigh and continuing a minute later. "I do appreciate the support, however."

Arturo grinned sheepishly.

"Of course, Captain!" he said. "Xiulan and I are behind you 1000%."

"'Never give up, never surrender!'" Xiulan chimed in, quoting from some old entertainment flick she'd listened to when she was younger.

Suddenly there was shouting, along with a red-faced Admiral Robertson storming out of the deliberation chambers and down the corridor the opposite way as Commodore Khilend chim and Captain Syzo Zh'qilrirh looked at one another as they stepped out of the room as well and watched Admiral Robertson continue to walk away before soon disappearing around a corridor.

"What the hell was that about?" Leigh asked, curiously.

"He doesn't look too happy, does he, Skipper?" Colt said.

"What's happening?" Xiulan asked, unable to see who was storming off.

"A very angry Admiral 'Chickenshit' Robertson just stormed out of the court room!" Arturo said. "Livid might be a good word to describe him."

"Anything that has Robertson pissed is music to my ears," Jacobs replied with a smirk.

Admiral Viktor proceeded to walk up to the Captain and commodore and after a moment of speaking, Viktor seemed to nod and look at Jacobs before making his way over. "Commander Jacobs, the hearing is over."

Jacobs was now curious. "Why, sir?"

Viktor sighed and shook his head. "Because that SOB Robertson blew up when it was decided that Commodore Khilend chim and Captain Syzo Zh'qilrirh were going to side with you and find you not guilty. To be honest, I don't know what's gotten into him lately. And since Robertson--the head convening authority in this trial--has withdrawn from the proceedings, the case is forfeited."

Jacobs let out a sigh of relief. "That's good to hear. Thank you, Admiral."

Viktor nodded with a slight grin. "I'll see you again before you leave. Just be careful in the mean time--who knows what's gotten into Robertson lately."

"Will do, admiral," Jacobs replied as Viktor turned to walk away.

"Well," Colt said, once Viktor was out of earshot. "That went better than I expected!"

"Indeed!" Arturo said. "Though, somehow I don't think that's the last we've seen of Ole Chickenshit. Not by a long shot!"

"I agree. I've been having Lougheed look into Robertson's recent actions," Leigh said. "Commander S'Rohass, you just got married, so go and enjoy your time off while I check in with Lougheed to see if he's dug up anything.

"If he has trouble finding anything, tell him to come see me," Xiulan offered. "I've done a lot of work in cryptography, I live in patterns, so I might see patterns in Robertson's behavior he might miss."
