The inspector cometh
Could the Inspector have failed us?
Yes. Our ship is provisionally certified. He doesn't have to give us permission to fly until we're fully certified.
How do we get fully certified?
We have to fly the ship. It's bureaucracy that dates back to earth. It's known as a catch-22.
A catch-22. Sigh. Human beings have so many wonderful things that I want to introduce my species to.
