It was this regrettable failing which took Ole Doc Methuselah, highly respected member of the Universal Medical Society, some forty-five light-years out of his way and caused him to land in the Algol... System on the planet Dorcon.
Hippocrates had asked him, pointedly and repeatedly, if they had taken aboard a new pile at Spico and Ole Doc had answered him abstractedly in the affirmative. But it developed, some ninety light-years out, that they were traveling on the ship’s reputation and that the poor old Morgue had but three or four grasshopper-power left in her gleaming golden tubes.
This was annoying. Hippocrates said so and, waving his four short arms, repeated, phonograph-recordwise, a two-hundred-thousand-word text on fuels and their necessity in space travel. He repeated it in fact so shrilly that Ole Doc in the pilot compartment unhooked every means of communication with the operating room, where Hippocrates was delivering his secondhand oration, and then used inertia converters to get down, somehow, into the Algol System.
