I'm doing this wrong. I shouldn't be apologizing by telling you how smart I thought you weren't.
Your work on that comm unit was brilliant. You are brilliant. The Galaxy is a poorer place for having put you in a position where we're only now discovering just how brilliant you are.
Does it count as an apology if you go on to blame the Galaxy for stuff?
Okay, I'm still doing this wrong.
Just go back to the "brilliant" bits and noodle around there for a while.
