Watch Officer on a long-haul interstellar cargo ship is not a glamorous job, to say the least... only awake one year out of every ten, huge stretches of time working alone with little to see other than the empty black of deep space. In addition to maintaining the ship infrastructure, the main role for the Watch is to assure that the cargo is secure and undamaged. This trip, that involves making sure that 5,000 frozen colonists arrive unspoiled at their destination. Having to check on colonists isn't always a privilege either, to say the least - they certainly do come in all shapes and sizes. Out of 5,000, there is one in particular who makes the Watch Officer's job worthwhile. It was weeks before he realized that he was finding excuses to check and recheck the pods on Deck 6...
