HyperdriveThe Camden Lock is sent to play host to representatives from two warring races who stand at the brink of war over the ownership of a mineral-rich asteroid. Henderson is advised to wait for a third ship – full of American mediators – to handle the delicate negotiations. Determined to show that his British ship and crew doesn’t need the Americans to handle the tough jobs, Henderson decides to try a little bit of brinksmanship, threatening to destroy the asteroid so neither party can have it. Then he forgets to countermand that order, and the asteroid is destroyed moments after an agreement is reached. But the alien races remain allies…and join forces against the inept Earth ship. So it’s a great day for interplanetary diplomacy, but a really, really quite spectacularly unlucky day for the crew of the Camden Lock…
