I really enjoyed her list of things she'd do if she were a starship captain:
102. I will design my ship's tactical systems so that I do not have to personally direct every single shot fired.Does that ring a bell? How about:
114. I will install seatbelts in my space vessels, and have pressure suits and pressure locks at regular intervals.
Hayden gives us advice to select some random cliches from her lists and put them together in story, preferably in a way that makes for a good, ripping yarn.
Whether you use it or not, enjoy it here.
