And Then There Was The Time... is a BattleTech short story by Mark O'Green. It was published in the 1988 anthology Shrapnel.

No detailed dates are given, but references to a discussion of the Kurita pilot with famous James Doogan of Wolf's Dragoons suggest the event to take place during or after the Dragoons' employment with the Draconis Combine, i.e. between 3023 and 3028.

Plot Summary[edit]

While a Slayer AeroSpace Fighter pilot boasts about his exploits, namely a dogfight with the Stuka of famous Karl Stephens and how he could have shot him down, the rather bored and distracted thoughts of his female companion provide a stark contrast to his story.
