Intergalactic explorer, enthusiastic entrepreneur, globe-trotting corporate executive: Chuck Marley is none of these. He is about to get his CFA. But becoming a Chartered Flight Attendant was not his childhood dream. Inspired by the cartoon hero Captain Querulous, Marley longs to leave the drudgery of Crete 581d. The possibility of escape comes from an unlikely source: An old manuscript by a forgotten Earthling named Leonardo Da Vinci. It could be worth credits. Perhaps Marley could flog it off to Gaston, his neighbour. At the very least the bumbling historian should know its worth. And he can explain the drawing of the toothpaste tube. If he's off to explore the galaxy, he may as well do it with good dental hygiene.
