"Sergeant, this whole situation is way beyond any of us. Recruit or veteran. Unless you've got a top secret rating beyond all of ours, I think we need to be really careful here.
Therefore, I propose this:
We'll revive the bare-bones crew that can run this ship and get it back to our base of operations. If what the doctor has told us is true, and I believe it is, some of the higher-ups simply have to know. As Mrs Sanjukta has said, all factions were involved in this. The ship will probably disappear while in transit and that's it. We get a medal for finding it and the whole situation will end as a footnote and nobody is ever going to mention it again.
The reason why I'm not in favour of reviving the hole crew, Sergeant, Doctor, is that I don I don't want everybody who was on my ship this day to slip and break their neck while stepping out of the shower. If this has been secret for more than 400 years, I doubt the few lives on my ship would be a high price to pay to keep it that way.
To make it short, we get our recognition for finding the Endeavour, keep our lives and the whole project can continue. Or be put under review. Or whatever they want to do about it.
Would this be acceptable for the two of you?"
