Space Shuttle Doesn’t Want to Retire

It seems that Discovery isn’t happy about it’s impending retirement. A leaky pipe has forced the final mission to be postponed. I can’t help but imagine some Herbie-like idea where the ship is deliberately self sabotaging (that is breaking bits of itself to put off the inevitable, as opposed to throwing clogs in itself*)

*It appears that this is not, in fact, the etymology of sabotage at all, that’s disappointing.
