Bart nods absently, hefting up his gear and walking along with Daniel towards the hangar.

"Maersk. Dr. Arden Maersk." Maersk offers his best curt smile (coming out more as a slight grimace) and friendly handshake to Robin and Alex. "I'm the vice-administrator of the sickbay. Hopefully we won't be seeing too much of each other."

Niece, eh? Hm... So that means Petru is his REAL name? Unless...

Robin cracks a smile at Maersk's joke and then comments, "So you're a doctor! And not the kind like Alex here or the kind that shoots out molten alloy rods. A doctor on this mission is very valuable, I would think; and you must be a great one to be coming along."

Maersk arches a brow at Robin, then nods slowly. "Well, yes, I'm a medical doctor. And you'll never catch me calling myself a great anything."

Except liar.

"Or throwing molten alloy rods, for that matter. Nonetheless, I'm certain we'll discover some unique and horrific diseases, so someone has to figure them out."

Robin legitimately laughs at what she perceives as Dr. Maersk's deadpan humor.

"Don't be ridiculous, Arden. You do some amazing things."

Perception|Empathy (Alex) d8+d6 vs. Hard (11); roll 5
Perception|Empathy (Maersk) d10(bon.) vs. 8; roll 3

Petru continues, "Tell them about your last piece of work -- pretty grisly, life-or-death stuff, right?"

Performance|Acting (Maersk) d10+d8; roll 12

((Pretty good roll; up to you to interpret.))

Maersk chuckles, "Oh, you mean the moron kid with the gasoline?" Maersk rolls his eyes, turning to Alex. "This kid was trying to start a fire in a paper volcano with some twigs back on Betalla while I was visiting a colleague, grabbed a can of gasoline. He went up with it. I was able to save his limbs, but he had some nasty third degree burns."

He finishes with a shrug, smirking at Petru and winking briefly. "Aside from that, nothing besides the usual decapitations and brain transplants."

Robin's expression is partly one of admiration and partly one of mild disgust.

Petru chuckles. "I'd match his story with a tale of my own, but I'm a lawyer: dumb-client stories are a big part and parcel of my entire life."

Noticing the young man's reticence, Samson says, "Oh! Dr. Bishop, the gearhead here tells me you're looking to do research. What sort of things do you intend to study?"

"Basically, I think I will start out observing the machinery as we use it on the foreign planet. After some observation, with the help of Robin here, I will begin to try to focus in on more specific issues as they present themselves and attempt to discern the causes of the discrepancies in the nominal operation of the machinery and the foreign operation, which I expect will be different."

It only then occurred to Alex that he had forgot to even ask Robin if she would participate in the study with him.

Maersk arches a brow, his scowl lightening a little bit in the smirk he casts Petru's way.

"So... in common terms, you'll be glorified tech support that's a little more local."
