Subject: RE: TAVERN STEAMBOAT Albert Hansell - Part 4
Commander Leej placed his hand gently on the shoulder of the actor. "There is a way, my friend, to evade the reaper's clutches. We have developed the technology to transport one in your situation to any destination in the past that preceded his demise. And he will arrive at that location with all current sensibilities intact, save one: he will retain no memory of his previous existence. You amy, if you desire, return to your childhood. Or to your first love. Or to the moment of your greatest triumph on the stage. Know this: If you choose to re-enter a previous phase of your own life, your ultimate terminus shall again be the Albert Hansell voyage. You may have glimpses along the journey of your life that seem somehow familiar- the unenlightened refer to these as deja-vu."

The actor stood, walking forward to gaze into the eternal vastness of space."I assure you there is no danger, sir. I have made the journey numerous times myself. In the attempt to destroy the Red Heron's vile plan aboard the Hansell, I have been transported nearly a dozen times. Unfortunately, I can not be transported with any knowledge of the actual intent of the League of Mudcat, and my motives are related to some cryptic information passed from other sources. I have been thwarted every time, often by my own unconscious actions." Leej lit a long dark cigar."Care for one? These are Cuban, late 1700's, before the heavy soil depletion." DeMornay shook his head.Leej lit the cigar, continuing " or we can transport you to another time and place altogether. Say, London circa 1600. Would you like to meet Shakespeare, Burbage, Marlowe? Say the word my friend."
