The Last Command by Alpha-Step The Last Command by Alpha-Step

As the Admiral's flagship is overrun by enemy fire the captain issues his last command, to evacuate The Perseus Demise. He stays behind, walking through collapsed hallways, finally stopping on one of the cargo bays. Staring through the glass he awaits the sinking into the planet accompanied by his trusty robot friend remembering his days as a cargo worker. He started as a 16 years old boy grease monkey and now 5 decades later, as the admiral he gladly meets his end at the place where his career started. It's ok, the fleet finally freed their home planet, so it's ok to contemplate the lights of the void one last time. "See you on the other side comrades"

I was listening to Transformers-Dark of the Moon Soundtrack Score- 12. No Prisoners, Only Trophies and was looking at this wonderful artwork. I think the music captured the moment of the Perseus Demise in its final hours. I dig it!

Can a captain leave his ship if it's been evacuated fully? I always had a difficult time understanding that rule.

I´m not sure myself, I guess captain´s get attached to their ships and the prefer to go down with it rather than having a shipless life. Or maybe if you stay in your ship everybody praises you when you get to Valhalla, who knows.
