I would think that I would see the first flash, if I were standing next to the emitter in the ship, and the second flash when the light returned from the front of the ship one second later and another flash every second as the light returned and changed directions. For the observer in the other frame I would see the flash when the light was emitted and 7.09 seconds later I would see a second flash as it returned from the front then .0354 of a second later I would see a third flash as it again changed toward the front. With this timing of the light clock I would think that the stationary observer could tell which of the two of us was moving, and his speed, or am I missing something?
