TBM-2009.15 – From the Logs of Basil

Robot head looking front on camera isolated on a black background

Description:

#audio. #flashfiction #basilandzoe A look at one or two of Basil’s log files.

Excerpt:

The Cousteau has just completed a humanitarian mission to the planet we refer to as Aquaria  Three, though the native population – a race of sentient marine mammals not far removed from the Terran cetacean species – has a different name for their world. The organic beings among our crew have been unable to reproduce the name, but I have managed a close approximation that the locals told me was ‘close enough for krill.’
