That’s right, scientists – SPACE scientists – are now running around telling everyone that the center of the galaxy smells like rum. Which means they’re getting very close to learning why it smells like rum, and that’s a secret we pirates just can’t afford to have get out. Not just yet, anyways.
Remember what they say about “the best laid plans,” mates. Secrecy at this point is critical, so keep yer yaps shut and stick to your orders. And if you see a space scientist knock them unconscious and send them my way. Do not – I repeat, DO NOT harm them as they may yet prove useful.
