NARRATOR: At some point we have each imagined going back in time to talk to ourselves.  Captain Andreyasn is actually doing it.

CAPT. KEVYN: Hi, Kevyn.  I'm you.

CAPT. KEVYN: Okay, that's not quite true.  I'm you as you'll be seven weeks from now.

KEVYN: I'm going to be captain?


Err... no.


CAPT. KEVYN: Let me try again.  I used to be you, and now I'm seven weeks older and I'm me, but that doesn't mean you have to end up like me.  In fact, I'm here so that you can work with me to make sure that the conditions that resulted in me don't happen to you.

NARRATOR: It is harder than it looks.

KEVYN: It sounds like I learn to babble like an idiot in the future.

CAPT. KEVYN: It's the clothes.  We have got to get me out of these things.

KEVYN: Nick, put the multi-cannon away.  We don't want to accidenta

SFX: *interrupting* BOOOM

DER TRIHS: A real time-traveller would have seen that coming.
