Deep Space, Lor Border Zone

14th Jyeshtha 2075

 

"I did not know that Terrans still had a nudity taboo!"

 

A bemused Sitara walked back into the cabin of the Kavaca zipping up her freshly donned jumpsuit, the ships proximity alarm providing a well-timed distraction.

 

The voice of Akazavani spoke as soon as Sitara entered the cabin, she could speak where she wanted in the ship and even had a holographic image for just such occasions. But she was being well behaved today, obviously, she understood Terran behaviour better than Sitara did.

 

"We're picking up a distress call from a Lor Navy ship, the Glorious Exploration of the Unknown."

Alex had been almost too excited to sleep! But it was nothing that the luxurious advanced material upholstry and reactive automatic enviromental controls couldn't overcome.

 

He'd woken up after 8 hours and spent the next 20 or so minuites exploring the various features of his room, particularly enjoying the sonic shower before getting himself dressed and stepping out into the cabin.

 

"Morning, sitara, akazavani...well relatively i guess." He mused as he stretched out a little.

 

He was about to ask if they had a gym on board or the like when he noticed the air.

 

"Something up?"

Sitara took the pilot seat and began to prepare the Kavaca to drop back to normal space.

 

"We've received a distress call from a Lor naval ship, I don't know how it works on Terra but we're obliged to offer assistance." to be fair she would always stop to offer help, but it made explaining easier, plus it was always an adventure even if occasionally it was a trap

 

 

"Well I do at least, you're welcome to stay on board, though it could be interesting for you to meet your interstellar cousins!"

"Its so weird that you're from earth but know nothin bout the modern day on it." He mused off handedly as he strapped himself into a chair following sitara's lead.

 

"But yeah, im up to meet some starmen and women, derring some do and the like!" He laughed a little

 

"Bet you'd like a break from teachin me how the appliances work too eh akazavani?"

"I would be a terrible host and ship if I didn't keep you entertained." it was difficult to tell if Akazavani was joking or not "We are at the coordinates now."

 

The Kavaca dropped out of superluminal speed a short distance, in a stellar sense, from the Lor ship. It was a thing of beauty all elegant curves in a bright white as if the ship was carved from white marble. Though in the darkness of space it only shone where the Kavaca's lights fell upon it.

 

"No response from our arrival, I am only getting feedback from the comms. Lifestyle reading are faint but indeterminable."

Sitara concentrated as she swung the Kavaca carefully around the ship using the lights to look at the state of the pure white hull.

 

"No outwards signs of damage or scorching from weapons fire, scans show the ship hasn't been here more than a day or so. Not enough time for the repair nanite to do there work."

 

It wasn't difficult to tell that Sitara was nervous about the whole things, lots of unknowns that could cause them all kinds of trouble. After a few more minutes she came to a decision and added.

 

"Akazavani get the ship to deploy a docking port but don't interface with the systems over there, I don't want you coming down with something!"

"Spooky....a ghost ship!" Facs chuckled a nervous chuckle as he unbuckled his seatbelt and stood up to pace a little as he did when he was nervous

 

 "you got a comm link i can borrow if we need to split up and look for clues?" He half joked as he examined the ship, it was difficult to gauge just how big it was without anything to compare it too but he got the feeling it was big enough to warrent splitting up.

Smiling Sitara got out of the pilot's seat and the ship began the complicated dance of docking with the other vessel, it was early enough that the ship could handle everything itself.

 

"Akazavani please note that I'm deputising this Terran, which allows him full access to Praetorian equipment etc, etc. As we don't know what we'll find we're going to have to treat this as a potentially hazardous environment."

 

Walking to a series of lockers just outside the cabin she opened one to pull out what appeared to be a spacesuit, though much thinner than those you'd find back on Earth. As she held out the suit she pressed the wall which showed a display, altering it until it displayed instructions in English.

 

"You'll need to put this on just to be safe, just follow the instructions and you should be fine. It's adjustable to a point so don't go too crazy until we know what's happening. And don't worry I'll be docking the ship so I won't peek as you change!" she grinned as she said this

"Uh thanks!" He said a little shocked at the promise he wouldn't be peeked at whilst changing but largely unperturbed.

 

Quickly stripping and changing into the sleek spacesuit he takes a moment to chuck his clothes bundle back into the cabin he was using.

As the display instructed the fitting of the suit, Sitara had chosen a voice that wasn't Akazavani so it wasn't too embarrassing, between her and the ship they flawlessly docked with the Lor craft. The airlock was almost perfect match for the ancient Delaztri craft, Sitara had pondered if the Lor hadn't picked up certain designs from that fallen empire. One day she'd have to take a look at that, maybe another bout of academics was in order.

 

With clunk that vibrated through the hulls of craft, bit no further in the vacuum of space, normally the two would exchange friendly data about each other if Sitara hadn't told the Kavaca not to exchange such things. She didn't want either the ship or its crew to pick up something nasty.

With a final check, Sitara set the systems on automatic, making sure that they'd be aware of any potential problem coming there way. It was unlikely this far out in space, but someone else might have detected the distress call, ones with less noble intents.

 

Standing up she deployed the body armour that would protect her from any dangers of the ship. A beautiful thing of gleaming white covered in amazing flourishes so it looked like a work of art. Giving the Terran a few more minutes to get used to the suit she stepped around to the airlock.

 

"You ready to go?"

"Yeah, this thing is pretty neat!" Flexing his arms and twisting a little "feels like im wearing nothin' at all." He was rather impressed all in all with the futuristic jump suit and its space age materials.

 

"You done ya sensor sweep full spectrum scan thing for anomalous anomalies?"

Pressing the panel the airlock began to cycle and the inner door began to open.

"It may look deceptive but that's a military vessel, the Lor like make their ships look pretty! It'll be shielded from most scans, and anything deeper might set off defences. The Kavaca is quite advanced, thanks to my efforts, but I'd rather not risk it this far away from any aid."

She stepped into the airlock and through the clear faceplate, Facsimile could see her give a broad smile.

"Besides where you sense of adventure!"

"Yeah, i think i saw one in a paper once, earth is pretty active for that kinda thing you know?" He added flippantly.

"When we have the time you'll have to tell me about this Art-Deco thing, it's been a long time since I've spent any time on Earth. Apart from the one time I helped some Terrans get home, I lost some good boots that day."

She stepped into the airlock and gestured for Facsimile to enter the airlock as well. A thought occurred to her so before cycling the airlock she turned to give the Terran a gentle warning.

"Just a warning we don't know what we'll find inside the ship, it's one thing when it's an alien but quite another when they look just like you."

"Yeah...don't worry bout me, ive seen a lot of messed up stuff already, dark magic and knife happy lunatics." He responded just as gently as he steadied himself, slapping his cheeks lightly.

 

"Lets get this show on the road, don't wanna keep riddley scott waiting." He stated confidently as he stepped into the boarding tunnel and began the slow walk towards the lor warship.
