Failed Mission

So today I prepared to pick up another ilovebees.com axon, this one a mere two blocks from the one I previously picked up. The call was scheduled for 0627 PDT (0927 local time), and I was very gratified to find there were only two phone booths at the specified location. I arrived about fifteen minutes prior to the call coming in, and sat near by, reading First Strike. At the appointed time, to the second (I took the liberty of synchronizing my watch with the USNO clock before leaving), the phone rang, and I picked up the voice of Melissa on the other end. On the previous call, she had asked me to name the vessel that she had been assigned to, the Apocalypso. Alas, this time, she asked me the name of the Captain. I drew a complete blank, given that the captain hasn't been an element in the story since the very first phases, before I got involved. I bungled the answer, and lost the call. *sigh*

Gragh!

Does that mean it's over, or that you have to start over? Or can you just try this axon again?

I can try it again, but they only ring once a day. Fortunately, purly kicks major ass, and allowed me to take her late shift tomorrow so I can try again.

That game looks so absurdly interesting and fun. Too bad I have no method of transportation, nor do I have the time to listen to that huge backlog of transmissions...
