The ship knows where I'm going. Sam will know. Winston was with me when I made the appointment, so he knows.
Winston looked tired. He might not have made it home safely. After the meeting, I'll give him a call. If I don't, I may be failing to assist a human in need. Direct orders can over ride that, but they have to be very, very carefully worded.
Build in safeguards. With a bit of thought, they can work for you instead of against you.
