Captain, the Galaxy needs saving.
Of all the thousands of pilots and intelligences present here at the Core, I'm the only one with direct experience in combat with Dark Matter Entities.
The Galaxy needs the benefit of that experience. Taking the ship here was the right thing to do.
Hang on. . . Your "experience" was what, ninety seconds of "running away really fast?"
And this is why I didn't list you as a reference on my resume.
