Mary Anne Eckhardt pressed her face

against the shuttle's view port, in an attempt to see the

approaching ship. It was huge, a long silver arrow lying dormant

in space with many silver bugs swarming around it.

'Wow, it's big,' Mary said in awe. Her

breath steamed up the view port and she lost her view of the

ship. Rather than wiping it off, she sighed and turned to the

crisp young ensign sitting next to her. He looked even more

apprehensive than she was.

'I... this is my first assignment,' he

said, swallowing nervously. Mary would have like to believe that

her closeness was making him nervous, but she knew better. A

first assignment was always scary. You never knew what to


'Keep your mouth shut and do what

everybody else does and you'll be ok,' she said patting him on

the hand. He scowled down at her hand and she pulled away.

'Hey, lighten up,' she growled.

'Sorry, I don't like to be touched,' he

said by way of apology. 'You're a petty officer, what's it like.

I mean on a ship?'

'Every one is different, depending on who

you work for and the commanding officer. Most of them are great.

I haven't heard any rumors about the Joan Of Ark since she's

newly commissioned, but I'm sure it's fine too.'

'But we'll be stuck in deep space for

three years. What if it's not --- ok, I mean?'

'Then you grit your teeth, do what you're

told and live with it, sir.'

'Oh boy,' he sighed, even more

apprehensive than before.

'Don't worry about it, we all have our

first ships. Just remember to salute aft, then salute the

officer of the deck when you board. After that some petty

officer will undoubtedly take care of you until you learn the


'A petty officer?' he seemed


'Sure. Who do you think runs this fleet,

the Captain?' she asked, trying to keep a straight face.

'Why yes, I...'

'Everybody line up, we have a five minute

window. Anybody who's not off in three get's kicked off!' A

chief petty officer shouted from the front of the shuttle.

'See,' Mary pointed with a half-smile.

The ensign swallowed even more and nodded convulsively.

'Your bag,' Mary pointed to the bag in

the overhead compartment. He apologized and pulled the bag from

the rack.

'Your other bag,' she pointed to the

compartment under the seat. The ensign looked at the chief, then

quickly ducked to get his other bag. Mary wondered if he would

have abandoned it if the chief was watching.

'Officers first, enlisted last!' The

chief shouted. Mary gave the ensign a little shove. He went to

the front of the shuttle reluctantly.

'He'll be just another asshole shouting

orders in a month,' a woman leaned over and whispered in Mary's

ear. Mary turned and smiled.

'God save us from asteroids and ensigns,'

Mary said and they both giggled. 'I'm Mary,' she extended her


'Ruth, Ruth Toliver. So how did you rate

the Joan Of Ark?'

'I was on the William Perry,' Mary said,

suddenly uncomfortable, 'they gave me first choice of


'The asteroid duster that exploded?'

'Yes, it was a deep space exploration

ship like this one, but much smaller. I barely made it on the

second of the only three lifeboats to escape.'

'Wow, a medal of honor winner, huh?'

'It's in my bag,' Mary patted the side of

her canvas bag with a smile.

'Glad to meet you. I was transferred

from HQ, no war stories here. I did two tours so I'd have enough

points for this,' she pointed out the window at the silver ship,

now laying alongside.

'It's better that way, believe me. When

a stranded crew becomes desperate enough to draw straws to see

who will get eaten, then it's best to stay home.'

'They didn't, did they?' the woman asked

in horror.

'Didn't what?'

'Didn't eat anybody?'

'No, but I'd rather not talk about what

we did eat. I may never eat again,' Mary said with a look of



Mary nodded and shuffled forward as the

line began moving.

'Well if you ever change your mind about

eating, buzz me,' the woman whispered, very close to her ear. 'I

wouldn't mind being eaten just a little.'

'Ruth!' Mary said in surprised

embarrassment. She turned and stared at Ruth. Their faces were

an inch apart. Ruth's smiling eyes looked deeply into her


'Well I wouldn't,' Ruth whispered and

they laughed together. Mary had no idea how prophetic that

statement would turn out to be, in a pleasant sort of way.

Within 24 hours, Mary was installed in

the Captain's Office. In 36 hours the atomic generators were

powered up and the Joan Of Ark got underway leaving the supply

ships, maintenance ships, shuttles, and well-wishers in it's wake

like a thousand little silver leaves scattering on a fall


As soon as her paperwork was caught up

Mary headed directly for the sexual recreation lounge. The

lounge was the talk of the fleet, and she had been dying to try

it out. It was new technology, a small world constructed of

holographic images, with real and holographic people. Their true

shapes and identities were masked with a holographic overlay.

She didn't realize how effective that masking was until her first

encounter in the lounge.

Mary sat in the booth and filled out the

form on the screen. She first selected 'Gone With The Wind' of

course, but that selection was filled for the next two weeks.

She added her name to the third week, and moved on to something

she could participate in now. There was an epic sea battle going

on in one section of the lounge, she stared at that selection

undecided, for a moment, then on inspiration she began

programming her own sub-menu into the battle. Finally, after

much work, she sat back and looked at the screen, very proud of

herself. She opened the metal door and slid into the weightless

room with a giggle of laughter.

Ruth sat in the still-warm chair and

recalled the menu Mary had been looking at.

'That little imp,' Ruth said in

admiration, then programmed herself into the hologram. She

looked around quickly, then turned off the screen and followed

Mary through the same door.

Mary rocketed through the cool, clear

waters for several minutes, enjoying her sleek body and the great

speeds she could attain. Suddenly, needing air, she shot toward

the surface. She broke through to open air and turned a

somersault, gasping in as much air as she could hold through her

blow-hole, then landed tail-first in the water to break her fall.

She balanced on the tip of her tail, watching the far-off battle

between wooden ships with soft, gray eyes. She chastised them

soundly with a series of squeaks, clicks, and squeals, then

leaped skyward and dove deep, using her pointed nose for a


In sudden fear she noticed a shape moving

alongside her. She looked over to see a sleek male dolphin only

slightly larger than herself.

'Who are you? This is my world,' she

said with squeaks, clicks, and whistles.

'I'm Raymond, your holographic partner,'

the other dolphin answered in the same language.

'My partner? I didn't request a

partner,' Mary said skeptically.

'The computer always provides you with a

partner. What good is an adventure without somebody to share it


'Then you're not real?' Mary asked


'Of course not, how could I be? Nobody

knows you are here, do they?'

'No, I guess not,' Mary brightened. 'So

what do you want to do?'

'How about a race? The loser nuzzles the

genitalia of the other.'

'They what?' Mary asked in horror.

'That's how dolphins mate, silly. They

dance in the water, intertwine their bodies, then nuzzle each

other's genitalia until they are aroused. Then they mate. It's

a very intricate process.'

'Skip the race and show me the other,'

Mary ordered. 'I haven't had my genitalia nuzzled in a long


'If that is your wish,' the dolphin

nodded with a toothy smile and moved closer.

'First we swim close and touch bodies,'

Raymond said. She could feel the warm water from his breath

against the sensitive skin of her face.

'Now we swim around and around, touching

bodies as we press against each other,' he said, putting his

words into action. Mary was amazed at how delicate her dolphin

skin was. She could feel the slightest touch, the most gentle of

caresses against her body, and each touch aroused her more.

'Oh, wow, it's working,' Mary sighed.

She was aware of sinking lower and lower into the depths of the

ocean as Raymond nuzzled her neck, chest, and finally her

genitalia. She gasped and stiffened as the long, pointed nose

probed deep inside her, parting the rubbery envelope of her sex

and gently stimulating it. Soon his long, narrow tongue slid out

and up inside her. Mary gasped and moaned as the long member

impaled her.

'Oh, Raymond, that feels so good,' Mary

said, enjoying the lavish licks he was giving her vagina. At

times the long tongue slid into the very deepest portions of her

womb, tasting, touching, and exploring her inner depths.

'I'm glad you like it. You taste

delicious, by the way.'

'Thank you,' she said coyly as the long

tongue licked and probed her sex.

'I want you in me, Raymond,' Mary


Raymond swam back a few feet and fanned

the ocean with his tail. Mary's eyes widened when she saw his

stiffened member standing up in front of him.

'Are you sure you're ready,' he


'Oh, yeah, I couldn't be more ready.

Stay there, I want to ride you,' she said approaching quickly.

He held his place in the water as she swam close and gently

impaled herself on his foot long penis. She squealed in delight

as the entire length of the penis slid deep inside her. They

swam frantically, propelling the penis in and out of her rubbery

sex hole. They swam, rotated and fell down and down as Raymond

pumped his huge member in and out of her vagina. Mary had no

warning. She burned and tingled from the moment she began, then,

suddenly, her orgasm struck with the force of a tornado. She

screamed long and hard as her loins spasmed, clenching and

unclenching his long member. The liquid heat was consuming her

loins, the penis seemed to grow even larger. She panted and

relaxed slightly, until Raymond began moving again. Her eyes

widened in joyful horror as her vagina began to spasm again. She

arched her back and screamed in her high-pitched dolphin voice,

until the second orgasm passed, leaving her limp and


'I must go now, another comes,' Raymond

said suddenly.

'Oh no, I can't take any more,' Mary

shook her sleek head.

'This one is different, a companion of

the same sex,' he said with a toothy smile and turned to

disappear into the dark ocean depths.

A sleek pink dolphin suddenly appeared,

swimming around her. She was a beautiful female with a gentle


'My latent homosexual tendencies must

have triggered you,' Mary said with a smile. 'I'm not sure I

want to try this right now, Raymond has more than satisfied


'A male can never truly satisfy a

female,' the beautiful pink dolphin said as she gently swam

around Mary.

'I'm not sure I believe that,' Mary said

with a smile.

'You should, it's true,' the dolphin

said, then slid gently against Mary as she passed. Mary gasped

and sighed as the sensitive skin touched her own.

'You see, I can do something that Raymond

can't,' the female dolphin said happily.

'Wha... what's that,' Mary was finding it

hard to speak. The female kept swimming close and caressing her

as she passed.

'I know when to touch you, where to touch

you, and how softly you want to be touched. Raymond could never

learn that. Only another female truly understands.'

'Mmmmaybe your right,' Mary said as the

female passed again.

'I don't have a long penis, like Raymond,

but we can nuzzle each other instead. Some believe that's even

more fun,' the dolphin said and approached again. This time she

pressed her body firmly against Mary's. Mary could feel it in

every fiber of her being.

'I'm not sure I want to nuzzle another

female's vagina, even a holographic one,' Mary said as the

dolphin sent shivers up her spine.

'Try it, sweet lady. See if you like

it,' the dolphin said and gently rotated until her tail was past

Mary's face. Mary was looking directly at the female's vagina.

It was soft, sweet smelling, almost irresistible.

'Well, why not, it's only a dream,' Mary

said and moved closer. The other dolphin suddenly licked her

vagina and Mary squealed excitedly, thrusting her pelvis forward.

She wished that she had arms to hold her in place. She extended

her long tongue experimentally and found it about the same length

as her real one. She slid it into the rubbery folds of the

female and tasted. It was absolutely wonderful. She found

herself licking the other female enthusiastically, lost in a

world of her own. She felt every action she made, done to her,

like a delicious, wonderful, mirror of delight.

'You taste and feel so delicious,' Mary

finally paused for breath. 'I wish the females of my species

were as wonderful as this.'

'They are, believe me,' the other dolphin

said and continued licking.

'How do you know?' Mary asked, then

plunged her tongue into the rubbery folds of her vagina.

'I was programmed to taste and feel like

a real woman, silly,' the dolphin said quickly and nuzzled deep

inside her.

Mary could no longer talk. Her loins

were burning and needed release. She probed the outer folds of

flesh with her long, stiff, tongue, then found the clit hidden

just inside the outer folds of the vagina. She licked it

brutally while the other female moaned and withered with her own

face in Mary's crotch. Mary felt something long and wide shoved

inside her vagina, and realized the other dolphin was using a

fin. She tried experimentally and found that her own fin would

fit nicely into the female. She worked her fin in and out while

she licked and tasted the beautiful pink female. They both

exploded simultaneously, withering, moaning and squeaking as they

thrashed in the weightless environment of the ocean.

It was a long time before Mary's vagina

stopped exploding and she could finally relax with her body

pressed against the warm female.

'You were absolutely wonderful,' Mary

sighed as she snuggled close to the dolphin's tail.

'So were you, Mary. I'm glad you finally

got around to eating me, a little,' the dolphin smiled and turned

to face her.

'Ruth?' Mary squealed in surprised


'In the flesh, sweetie. Well almost,'

she spread her fins with a toothy smile.

'Ruth, I'll beat you half to death for

this,' Mary said laughing.

'Not without arms, sweetheart. So how

did you like it?'

'I think I'd like to see more of you, as

you really are,' Mary said thoughtfully.

'I'm glad. You have no idea how hard it

is to proposition another woman, without taking a chance on

losing a friend. It's a heartache, but times like these make it

all worthwhile.'

'Let's get out of here and try it in the

flesh,' Mary said suddenly.

'Ok, but I'm saving your program. I like

it here. Maybe I'll try Raymond myself, when I get


'He's all yours,' Mary laughed. They

both swam toward the entrance.
