Rearranging Deck Chairs on USS Manifest Destiny

Welcome to The USS Manifest Destiny, the most advanced society the world has ever known, one destined to be the leader of the free world, and eventually the emprisoned world, because of everything. My name is Eric Holder, and I will be your Customer Service Director on this Vogage to Infinity.

Shortly after departure, there will be a perfunctory lifeboat drill, because there are no lifeboats on this unsinkable Shining Ship on the Hill, marooned by an unseasonable drought, making the lifeboat drill even more useless. Instead, we will have a Rearranging The Deck Chairs Drill, which we hope you will find both educational and amusing.

Thank you for your attention and have a pleasant voyage.
