For the next few weeks we are sticking with Daniel Smith’s Story, which is tentatively titled “LabRat”.
BLURB: Inadvertantly ‘rescued’ (by a small admin error) seconds before committing suicide, Daniel is thrown into the Great Wide Multiverse and more adventure and misadventure than his otherwise mediocre life as a door to door vacuum cleaner salesman could prepare him for. He is assigned to the A.S.S. ( Alien Sentience Services) and promptly given a ‘new look’ and put into ‘training’.
We last found Daniel on Bancoon, Argle’s third moon, and a scientific research centre. Daniel has spent his first day with ASS being melted.

Although it seemed that he had been given the freedom of the facility, Daniel didn’t feel up to leaving his suite. He stalked around the three modest rooms investigating each cupboard and spotless corner.
Finally, he sat, cross-legged, on the low, square stool which occupied the space in front of the screen.
“I would like to watch something, please.”
“Certainly Daniel, what would you like to see?”
First he started with documentaries, especially about history and the current affairs of the people on Argle. He was grudgingly relieved to see that the general populace behaved just as badly as his once-fellow humans. The politicians were just as self-serving, and big business just as greedy. He should have learned, by now, not to expect miracles. Human nature, it appeared, was not limited to humans on Earth.
