The Elder One seemed to consider the request for a minute then gave a toot sounding from the top of his head, and ‘shrug’ like gesture. “..I see no reason not too, so long as there is an equal exchange of information in return. Perhaps an enlightenment of information of races from your own region of space?” He inquired.
Drudoc took up the slack of exchange at this point. “..I see no reason we could not, such a trade would not be harmful as far as I can see to either party.” She said in agreement. Then looked around for seeing if anyone among the rest of the senior staff would be inquiring of information.
”..Then we have an agreement Captain.” The Elder One replied.

It was then that Miz’uki who was still mentally stuck still and her anger at their situation was building she had just been about to take a drink from the glass of water she gripped the glass of water too tightly and suddenly with a sharp breaking sound The glass of water broke in her hand she was not hurt but clearly she was quite upset
Serenity turned her head to the Engineering chief ” are you ok Lieutenant” she asked gently. Consurne writing on her face and clear in her voice. ” If your not hurt I can find something to clean that glass up” Serenity offered.
NE Barbra spoke up to Serenity, “..I’ll get the glass cleaned up ma’am, don’t worry.” She said already moving with a sonic broom and pan to sweep things up.
Drudoc looked over to where the chief engineer was, her expression of anger was clear she felt, and Drudoc suspected it was due in part to their current situation getting to the young Lieutenant. “..Lieutenant, why don’t you and the counselor step outside a moment, collect your thoughts with her?” Drudoc advised.

Denooy had jumped at the sound of shattering glass looking around for the cause and at the Captain’s words she glanced to Hayley, “I’ll continue talking with you later if that is alright?” then she got to her feet and walked over to the Chief Engineer, “Why don’t we go for a little walk?”
Denooy Ze In Dra, Chief Counselor
Miz’uki nodded getting up she moved to walk with the counselor before leaving the room she turned to their guest “Please Forgive me Elder one…I just…have a lot on my mind and I hope that you do not take this incident in offence” she said simply
The Elder One regarded Miz’uki, “..A pity we did not get to speak during this time. But things are for you as they are. Have a good day.” He stated simply.
Nivor looked up sharply as the glass broke, but others were closer and more able to assist. He watched the engineer leave with the counselor, mentally making a note to check with both of them later - the engineer to ensure she was well, and to get the counselor’s assessment. He could hardly blame her, everyone was on edge. He had voluntarily left his home planet almost two decades before, and expected he’d never likely see it again, whether they were in their own galaxy or not; he’d long before come to terms with this, else he’d likely be in the same place.
“You mentioned your religion covers many worlds, Elder One,” he began, trying to refocus everyone’s attention. “How many sentient species are in this area of space?”
The Elder One turned back from his study of Miz’uki as she left to regard the XO. There was a pause as if he considered how to answer. “..At least 30 are known to me, but there are likely many more that travel in small ships from further beyond. You all seem like such people in your own fashion unless I missed my guess?” He inquired and answered.
Hayley nodded to the Counselor in answer then continued to sip at her tea for a few moments. She then stood and made her way closer to her commanding officers and their conversation with the Elder One. The XO’s question had caught her attention and she was interested in the outcome of it.

Rhansi paused, holding still as he contemplated the Elder One’s words. “Elder One,” he said slowly. “When you say ‘from further beyond”…” He glanced at Drudoc and then at Hayley as she approached. “Do you mean ‘further beyond’ from within your galaxy, or… like us?”
The idea that this was a potential… nexus for lost travellers made his head spin, but that was getting too far ahead.
