Fifth in a series of responses to Rob's Empty Shell challenge.

When Gene Roddenberry comes to me and complains, I'll stop.

The previous drabbles in the "Empty Shell" series are The Full Shell [ENT], Grand Opening [TOS], Sk8er Droid [TNG], and Fly-by [DS9].

Tom and Harry were in Sandrines, drinking synthahol and trying to one-up each other over who had flown the fastest ship, died the most impressive death, etc.

Harry dragged Neelix into the conversation. "What's the largest thing you've ever flown?"

"You wouldn't believe me if I told you."

Tom couldn't focus. "Have you ever lied to us?"

Neelix shrugged. "The Caretaker snagged a cone of solid neutronium bigger than a Kazon mothership. I had to find someone who'd buy it whole."

"So who bought it?" Harry asked.

"The Kazon Ogla - young Kazon go through targets so fast, you know."

Thus endeth the Empty Shell drabble series.
