Claude was fumbling with something in his duffel while Matthew spoke. Finally extracting a parcel wrapped in a tunic. He laid it gently on the bed.
With a finger he pointed to himself, “Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, South of Quebec City. Near Lake Champlain. I was there visiting family just before my assignment here.”
“I hear that Saint Louis is famous for its beef ribs. I’m sure that is something you will be tweaking in the replicator.”

Riley gave a crooked half smile. “I’m more a fan of brisket, personally, but I’m also a lousy cook, so probably no tweaks or adjustments from me.”

He leaned his forearms on his knees, still playing with the stylus. “I’ve never made it up that way. Farthest north I’ve been was Chicago.” He laughed. “And not during the winter. I’m not the biggest fan of snow.”

He was quiet for a moment before continuing. “I mostly keep to myself; read a lot.” He gestured to the books and his PADD. “I don’t mind music as long as it’s not too loud. I hope you’ll find I’m a pretty easy guy to get along with,” he finished with a small grin.

    “I believe I will be as well.” Claude replied, happy to have found a kindred soul. at least for now. “I enjoy reading as well. I’m currently re-reading a series that have had some very popular holo-series based off of it. Pre-WWIII Old Western crimefighting.”

He continued to put away more of the clothes in his duffel, this time civilian clothes which he carefully unfolded and put on hangers. “I’m hoping that I can find some of these inspired holo-series in the holodeck archives.”

Riley’s grin faltered the slightest bit at the mention of the holo-series, before he slipped it back into place. “I’ll have to read those, I’m always up for some crime fighting. Holo-series aren’t really my thing, though.”

He fiddled with the stylus for a moment before picking up his PADD. “With the entertainment options available, I wouldn’t doubt they’re in the library, though. They have a rec room with bowling alley, pool tables - heck, they have a pool on board.”

He tapped the PADD a few times. “That reminds me,” he muttered. “I need to see if I can schedule some time in the gymnasium.” He paused, staring at the wall as he flipped the stylus. “I wonder if there are any classes being held there…” He began swiping and tapping on the PADD, completely focused on the device.

Claude finished hanging up his clothes as Riley checked out the gymnasium offerings. Not a major fan of the gym, he went only when necessary. Now swimming would be something he could get into. Growing up on the Richelieu River had forced him to learn to swim at an early age, and water related activities was something hjs father had stressed while growing up.

“I believe I will need to check out that pool myself. I have fond memories of swimming as a child.” Claude replied, “I have not had a chance to get into the water for several years.”
