Re: Side Mission 04: Exploration

"Hmm..." Were it anywhere but here, were it time off duty, Geiben would've taken Zenigata somewhere and help him. The damage caused by mankind unto itself, its ignorance in the face of suffering, amends must be made, starting at the personal level, especially because Zenigata's part of his crew, and...

Re: Chapter 18: New Blood

Geiben puts his hand up, waving off the apology. "No worries, doctor." He smiles at the energetic Wasp. A happy go-lucky crew member is always welcome, to a point, anyways. People need boost to morale like this. Can't run a ship of people if all the people ever do is act like robots. "That won't be ...

Re: Side Mission 04: Exploration

Not good, especially because they're on a foreign ship. Geiben nods to the captain. "Charlie, if you'll excuse me, I'm going to have a word with our doctor here." The commander gestures Zenigata over to a corridor with less people. Not that he's afraid anyone trying to listen in; Geiben just doesn't...

Re: Chapter 18: New Blood

Geiben takes a few steps back, with a face of sheer confusion. "Uh... doctor, explanation?" He then looks at the lady and the wasp. "What are your names? And what do you mean by small friends?" Granted, he almost doesn't want to know.

Re: Side Mission 04: Exploration

Geiben smiles at the site of the market. He reminisces his youth, navigating through downtown Kilina, despite his parents' objections, trying to find the cheapest hardware for his sailboat; kid had a limited allowance, after all. More than anything, he looks intrigued at the people here. So many que...

"It'd be wise to stay together." Geiben nods, then taps his earpiece. "Captain Green-Thumb, can you still see Zenigata's and my bio-signatures? I want to make sure we stay connected." He then checks the map. "Hmmm..." The commander looks at Charlie. "You said you wanted us to understand your people'...

Re: Side Mission 04: Exploration

"... Understood, I'll take your word for it." Geiben's tone turns sympathetic, but his face twists into one of great difficulty. So... refugees of numerous species. A single foreign species would cause a stir in the Alliance, but multiple of them, from a different dimension no less, if they aren't c...

Re: Side Mission 04: Exploration

"It seems we have far more in similarity than difference." Geiben addresses, both to Zenigata, and to Charlie. He himself has donned a white, pressurized space suit, a holstered pistol at his belt, his maglocks turned on, the heels of his boots emitting a small, green LED light. "I suppose welcome t...

Re: Chapter 18: New Blood

The commander looks at the doctor sympathetically. It's a mythical tale, to be sure, but all that matters is that it binds these people together as family. Right... family... Geiben briefly considers his own ancestry, his mother tracing her lineage back to tribes along the Rhine River of Terran Germ...

Those species shown on the feed looked completely unfamiliar to Geiben, but that speech, it sounded familiar. "Put the audio through our data base, see what shows up." After less than a minute, several articles show up on screen. "Wait... these are speeches of the leadership on Terra, back when huma...

I mean, like you said, you have both canine and human characteristics, and your intelligence is certainly not lacking." He comes to a thought. "Are there...

(To Wazu) "Seems to be a trend on this ship, Mr. Wazu." The captain then elaborates. "I mean no disrespect, you've done quite a bit of work keeping this old ship relevant. I imagine it's been difficult." (To Zen) Geiben walks down the hall, following Zenigata"Yes, uhm..." Geiben looks down at Zen's ...

Re: Side Mission 04: Exploration

While the doctor tries to resolve the situation diplomatically, Geiben mutes his comms temporarily. "If what you said, Mr. Wazu, was true, then they must've suffered brain injury during their dimensional transit. Their AI has more sense then their captain." His face is a mix of disgust at the lack o...

Geiben freezes. He looks at his crew around him, who are also looking similarly confused. United Systems? Hierarchy War? Machine War? Wait--- "Sojourner, repeat. did you say you were part the United Systems Alliance? This is the Interstellar Alliance navy you are talking to. We aren't part of the sa...

Geiben clenches his teeth. Blast it! He watches as the shuttles approach and the fighters swarm in formation. This isn't good, not at all... fighters?! "Get the marines ready for anti-boarding action. aim our turrets on those fighters." He reaches for his pistol, but keeps his hand frozen mid-action...

The man clutches on to a rope with both hands, his entire body soaking wet amidst the storm. Wearing nothing but a pair of trousers, Geiben howls out, exhilarated, at the upcoming wave, about the swallow him and his tiny, metal sailboat, sending them both into Pacifica's embrace. He smiles, his bloo...

Mister? Geiben shrugs it off, instead his smile turns sympathetic to the doctor's displeasure of politics. "Likewise, doctor. I suppose we're a small crew here, so Geiben will suffice. How long have you been on the ship? Captain Green Thumb already informed me much, but perhaps you can provide me yo...

Re: Chapter 18: New Blood

Geiben salutes Esscast, then goes to shake Zenigata's hands. Xenos are nothing new to him, as he was forced to study much of non-human species during his education. Furthermore, much of human conflict has been weakly justified by "the Other". Now is certainly not the time to revive Terran plagues th...

Re: Chapter 18: New Blood

"Understood, ma'am." Geiben taps his data pad a few times, thinking. Weapons and armor is always nice, but given this ship's weak hull, redundancy is probably cheaper and more considerate for the crew and the passengers. "I'll compile a list of specific improvements in 12 hours. Installation of addi...

Geiben looks there, stunned for a few seconds by the sudden, drastic change in events. This was just supposed to be overseeing the ship while diplomats do there work, was it not? Recovering, he alas answers Green-Thumb's question. "Enough to know that this ship won't survive the first firefight we g...

Hopefully there's a large enough drone compliment to compensate. Another thing he'll have to check up on...

Re: Chapter 18: New Blood

Geiben nods, looking at the spin gravity section of the ship. All par for the course, any exploratory ship without such a feature wouldn't get past the preliminary conceptual phase. It's a good thing too. Kilinan biotechnology is pretty good, but it's nice not to have to always deal with the awkward...
