Kendricks had reached the bridge without problem.
The other prisoners began to look around the massive room, trying out the controls.
Then Kendrick noticed what he was looking for.
There was a large timer above a panel of flashing lights.
The self-destruct control panel.
He went over and began pressing random buttons. Hoping to deactivate the self-destruct in time. It seemed they had alot of time, but then again, he couldn't read the Covenant language as well as some.
Suddenly he got an idea.
He took out his pistol and fired four shots into numerous parts of the panel.
The timer froze, and the panel nearly exploded.
He smiled and looked at the other Marines, "Well, guess what, I think we just captured the first Covenant ship of the war."
Their faces registered surprise, and then suddenly a cry rose from them as they found out that they had indeed survived, and with some Covenant handiwork.
"Okay! Everyone! Pick a station, it shouldn't be too hard to figure out how to drive this thing. Let's take it back to the USNC, and we're home-free!"
you very much
If a tree would fall in the woods.....would the other trees laugh at it?
