"Our monkey wrench here says you're something of an engineering genius, Dr. Bishop. I wouldn't know much about that myself." He smiles. "My line of work isn't quite so... prestigious."

Robin laughs a bit but stops quickly, looking to the other man. "Uncle, who is this?" she asks amiably.

Petru gestures to Arden. "Oh, this is my friend, Dr. --"

Ok, now that had Daniel worried, Bart almost never brooded. Something wasn't right and he was going to find out what the hell this was. Daniel makes his way behind him and leans over.

"Wescott!" Daniel says, it isn't loud but it's loud enough to get the point across that this wasn't a joke, and Wes needed this to be serious, "I don't know what your problem is with Kader but I want to know. And I mean now. We're going to be on that bucket for a year and I don't want the only friend I have on this trip spending it in the fucking brig."

((Morris' Plot Points +1 = 7; good bringing out your character and his concerns.))

Bart stares hard at Daniel for a beat before curling his lips in resignation. Just as he's opening his mouth to speak, however, one of their fellow squadmembers stops him short. Leo "Hardliner" Metharom half-guffaws, half-remarks, "What's wrong, Singer? Are we afraid of the Muntoan?"

Wescott glares at Metharom. "No. It's just --"

Absalom "Spiker" Ísman interrupts. "Kader's a great leader. You should know it was his skills that played a big part in getting us here."

Bart sighs. "I know. I just don't trust their involvement in this." A number of his fellows snicker at him.

Avra "Podalei" Theossen jeers, "And I imagine there's some Muntoan conspiracy to fuck all this up? What a load of shit, Singer!"

Wescott steams silently as the others continue to laugh at his expense.

"Back the fuck up you three." Daniel didn't need this right now, "We're all on the same damn side here," He turns to face Wescott, "and that includes Kader."

Daniel turns to face the other three again. "Now I believe that Captain Kader told us to hump it down to the hanger. So if we're done with this dick show, let's pack it up and move out."

Morris' words spread a hush among his squadmembers. Lucid says breathlessly, "Gotcha, Dice," and the others mumble in consent. They all grab up their gear and start heading toward the main hangar.

As soon as the others are out of earshot, Daniel casually turns around fixing his eyes on his friend.

"Sorry about that, but come on Wes, I don't need a full explanation here, I just need something to let me know that I'm not going to be short a pilot when we get to the colony."

((Morris Plot Points +1 = 8; I like how you played that out.))

Wescott looks left and right furtively before closing in to whisper, "There's more to our squadmaster than just that. He is a Muntoan, and despite my misgivings I wouldn't push on just that. But he's a Muntoan in the Stellar Navy of Betalla -- a captain in the Stellar Navy of Betalla.

"There's something there that doesn't seem quite right, know what I mean?"

Daniel lets out a long sigh. He has a feeling that this is going to be a problem down the road.

"Listen Wes, I get what your saying. But the fact that he's a Captain should tell you something. Just how many Muntoans do you think ever get higher than Sergeant? And Kader was made it to Captain, and now he's in charge of one of one of the best damn squads in the BSN, a squad so good that we've been put on the X-Colony mission, and Kader was the one that got us here."

"And it would tell me something... if there weren't more to the story. I'm not questioning the man's competence at all -- or even loyalty really -- but there's... something he did. I don't know all the details, so there's not a lot I can say to justify myself. In the meantime I know how to keep my mouth shut; I'm not going to be jeopardizing anything, Dice. X-Colony 1 is too important."

"Alright Singer, I'll trust you for now." Daniel raises his hand and clasps Wescott's shoulder, "Now let's hustle down to the hanger, people are going to start talking if we keep standing out here together like this."
