"There are a lot of 'A' class starports in space.  Any idea where this Fingers guy might be at if he's even still alive Kris?"  He eyes the other two women.  "It seems like the duke keeps quite the eclectic staff."

"No, but if we ask around someone will know. The problem is he could be on Terra, years away."

Eyes the five.  Nods head.  Laugh.

"Us too."

"Right, I finished bandaging our wounds, no bullets in the bullet holes though or sign of foreign objects. As if we were hit with ice that melted. Ardens sores look like Borillian Fever, but he's clear, the test came up negative."

"Kris I can't test it requires DNA scan."

"What subjects do you tutor Mr. Morfious?"

Looks at him, has weatherbeaten look of someone who's been around the block too many times.

Re: The Lady Anne
Ardens expression doesn't change a beat during the introduction performed by the Duke's Personal Assistant, but he winces as Snowy attempts a jest.

"Try not to offend the nice people who rescued us," he suggests to his doctor in an undertone.  "Try not to offend your doctor," he admonishes himself.

At least the Captain's question seems polite enough ...

Ardens brow furrows for a moment as the necessities of etiquette dawn slowly upon him.

"Ardens, Ardens Grafton.  Engineer, most recently involved with Research and Development on Emerald, and assisting with medical emergency on Plaven."  He tries not to look at Richard.  Some of the other things he's been involved with might not go down too well in present company.

Comm comes to life.

News Update

"Meanwhile the police still have no leads on the disappearance at the Baronial estate of the Ecanis family. A valuable statue to the family was found missing this morning. No sign of robbery but item is missing from locked case. Police have no leads and request help from citizens."

"In Sector related news from Chronor/Chronor 050-1105."
"News of a new Duke has caused political friction with the Zhodani who have since announced that shortly restrictions on trade to their worlds may commence.


 "Regina/Regina (0310-A788899-A) Date: 097-1105."

 "Officials of the General Shipyards on Regina announced that it has
 completed negotiations with Tukera Lines to locally manufacture L-Hyd drop
 tanks for use on high-capacity commercial vessels. General will assemble
 components at its more modern facilities on Pixie (0303-A1001030-D). The
 first production examples are expected to be available within six months,
 at which time Tukera Lines will begin high capacity service from the
 interior. Component assembly will be carried out at General's more modern
 facilities on Pixie (0303-A100103-D)."

"The joint press release concluded by stating that local manufacture of
L-Hyd drop tanks marks the dawn of a new era of commerce and prosperity in
the Regina subsector. Following the announcement, common stock in
Oberlindes Lines plummeted 27 points on the Regina exchange before trading
was suspended. Officials of Oberlindes Lines were not available for
comment."

" I'm disappointed you'd think a starship burning up on entry would make the news cycle." Rutger chuckled, his mood drastically improving once the scout base was in sight." Now all I have to do is explain this to the services, draw my paycheck, and get a well deserved adult beverage or ten....Assuming we don't end u quarantined, or committed."
