VANDERBEAM, WHAT DID YOU DO???
He must have said something pretty corrosive to the admiral.
Their relationship crumbled to dust.
It's a Charlie Sheen, and the Admiral wants to make sure he's winning! Or maybe it's just a time sheen…
Shouldn't have brought all those vases aboard.
He sure went off in a huff…
…it's going to be hilarious if this altered timeline is all Vanderbeam's doing, somehow.
Vanderbeam, AWOL? Jovia, maybe? He still hasn't bothered to catch up on her messages.
But that's another parallel universe removed from the one they're currently in!
Nothing to say that among the changes he couldn't have stopped her from being killed. You know, just to kill her again in front of Beams to be all evil supervillain.
My theory is that in this universe, he discovered the messages sooner (i.e., being Vanderbeam removed from a universe in which he had a relationship with Jovia) and read them all at once, instead of parceling them out over time. It's too much for him to handle, and he goes crazy.
What happened to the vanderbeam, cutter and jinx that they replaced when they came over to this universe (after the crisis) ? Did they die?
Presumably they got shifted to the universe our vanderbeam, cutter, and jinx came from.
Yeah they are likely dead. It's just how shift drive works. Another reason why it's awful.
One of the things I find disconcerting in modern sci-fi is the need to be irresponsible and be allowed access to powerful systems. If you have proved yourself unreliable or insubordinate in the past you will not be entrusted with responsibility or power in the future. It seems a common theme in baby-boomer stories.
"…Calibrate rust sensors to extra-sensitive!" But won't a higher resolution mean more data to catalog??
it could also be that they're trying to FIND the rust before they catalogue it, in which case they would want the sensors extra-sensitive and then they would recalibrate them afterwards.
