A/N: Written for round two, week four of sd_ldws. The genre this week was "sci-fi" and the prompt was "phaser/stun gun." And in this drabble I prove that I know absolutely nothing at all about phasers or the sci-fi genre! Thanks goes to renne for her assistance in these matters.
"This is a new flavor of sick and demented, even for you."
Steve looks up from the door to the airlock. "What?"
"What?" Danny mimics, pitching his voice high. "You just threw a guy in an airlock with a defective suit and threatened to eject him into outer space if he didn't tell you who's been selling boosted phasers to the Plutonians! You don't think that's a little twisted?"
"Okay, first of all," says Steve, "I do not sound like that. Second of all, there is absolutely nothing wrong with that guy's suit. I used it last week when we were transporting those prisoners to Ganymede to stand trial for the assassination of the Jovian ambassador."
"Ah," says Danny, putting his hands on his hips. "Remind me, was that before or after you punted a guy into space and asked him how long he thought he'd survive if we just left him there?"
Steve looks at him, unimpressed. "That was three days ago."
"Right," says Danny. "Do you know where the nearest black hole is? Maybe we could just go dangle this guy off the edge and threaten to push him in if he doesn't talk. I think that would be effective."
"It's a couple thousand light years away, and I'm pretty sure that would kill us all," says Steve. "Do you know anything about black holes?"
"Sorry, I guess I'm a little rusty. I keep forgetting to order my copy of Beyond Waterboarding: 1001 Torture Methods for the Thirty-first Century."
Steve raises his eyebrows. "Which one of us strapped a suspect to the front of the ship and threatened to breach the atmosphere if he didn't give up a name?"
"That was a bad week," says Danny. "A very, very bad week."
Steve starts to reply but is interrupted by a howl from inside of the airlock. He and Danny exchange glances.
"You sure that's the suit you used last week?" says Danny.
Steve pauses. "I'll go check on him."
