I wasn't in favor of sleeping, but if that's what was chosen, I'll stand by it. No need to be waffle-y.

1, with the caveat (of course not representable within this context) that I stand by the choice I made that time; but if I am returned to a new ship in the middle of combat, I expect to already be fully awake and will remain so. So,  if this answer would be taken to mean that I intend to repeat the same choice in these different circumstances (which I would not), then I'll go with 2.

Maybe we are still sleeping and all of this is just a dream...not the most pleasant one, but still just a dream. So keep sleeping until it gets better! I love sleeping!

While sleeping was good at the time, and certainly led to several new experiences both physical and spiritual, there is some room for regret and remorse for this course of action. After all, who will preen the mates and feed grubs to the young of the others formerly aboard the Fury?

Option 2.

Number 2 sounds like the best option.

You tell the tribunal that you aren’t pleased with what you’ve done. You should have been more responsible and not let your fellow Pkunk down like that. They hoot a bit, and send you on to a new life.

This time you grow up to work in a factory. The Pkunk don’t need factories of course, but they beleive that hard work can be good for the soul. So some are kept around as places where errant Pkunk can work and learn whatever lessons they believe they need to learn. You work diligently, and attempt to keep your fellow workers amused with happy songs and pretty poems. After a while you’re called up to the factory managers office. He explains that you’ve done a wonderful job and that he’ll give you a choice. You can either continue working on the floor, singing happily and dancing around, or you can have his spot as a manager and learns something new and exciting.

   1. I want to stay on the floor with my happy friends and sing!
   2. Something new and exciting? What a treat this is!

New experiences are always welcome additions to our soul's journey down the path of enlightenment. Let's try something new!

Yeah, let's take the manager job. If nothing else, it would help prevent karma overflow. Wink

You decide to take the manager up on his offer. Organizing can be fun and with you in charge this place can only get better! To begin with, it is a lot of fun. You dance merrily around, organizing happy events for your subordinates and have loads of happy slides and pretty flowers installed to give the place a better feel. After a while, you get a note from upper management. While they appreciate your efforts. Pkunk factories are supposed to be a place where you work for the good of your soul. You’re turning yours into a merry go round, which isn’t the point. So now you have a choice. Either make your factory more efficient and profitable, or get transferred to a farm where you’ll be in charge of keeping the plants alive.

1.   Alrighty then, let’s make some money!
2.   Plants? I love plants!

Give up on my dream of making everywhere happy and peaceful, simply for the sake of cold hard cash? Never! Option 2 please.
