Re: The Dark Master and Commander

Andrew: If I remember my Patrick O’Brian, a ship’s captain who was notably

religious could order the crew to fall in line with his observances. His

command was then known as a “blue light” ship.

If this tradition continues, and if this Satanist officer should rise to

command a vessel in H.M. senior service, there will, as Jack Aubrey would

say, be the devil to pay.
