– Outside the ship –
With nothing to do on the ship but re-analyze the sensor data ad nauseum and wait for their digging equipment to be repaired, Solit’s choice to accept an assignment to go visit Zank was a matter of practicality more than anything. He asked Lieutenant Cewa to join him specifically because neither of them were going to be leaving the island any time soon unless it was to make use of hand-held subspace devices in the middle of the sea (or gulf, or ocean, or whatever sized body of water surrounded the island), given that their distinctive physical traits would be difficult to conceal from the villagers. Instead, here he was, off to barter with the Ferengi who had been just as regrettably detoured as the Asimov.
“Well, Lieutenant, my father was raised in the Ferengi Alliance, so I’ve had plenty of experience with them,” Commander Idari said, trying to break the monotony of the walk. “How much have you been around them and their particularly aggressive version of capitalism?”

OOC: Ben Z. has left the Asimov, so I’ll assume nobody else is tagging along.
Commander Idari finally reached the downed Ferengi vessel, and began to look around for Zank or his wife.
“Hello? I’m looking for Mister Zank. My Captain mentioned that you were willing to provide assistance in return for aid in departing this planet.”
Solit was a little uneasy about this plan. He was certain that, had he been able to determine what material was causing the diamagnetic field, he may have been able to determine how to create a reverse polarity field without the Asimov operating a full power.

A beautiful woman appeared at the entrance to the ship. “Ah, you must be looking for my husband. I will go get him,” said the woman. She looked part Deltan, part Risian.
Moments later, Zank appeared. “What can I do for you, Commander?” asked Zank.
A shift in the timeline occurred and the fabric of reality warped. Idari could have sworn he was with a Lt. Cewa a moment ago but the name was starting to fade, as history overwritten, and a Lt. Cmdr. Wessley Tate took the place of the young Lieutenant Cewa.
“Excuse me, I meant to say, Commanders,” said Zank, “I failed to notice the Lieutenant Commander’s correct rank. I thought it was Lieutenant.”
Tate was slightly confused be the feeling was starting to fade. He realized Idari was probably in charge of this particular mission, but spoke anyone. “It seems we have a business opportunity in front of us Mr. Zank. One that might be profitable for all parties.” He knew how to talk to Ferengis but he wasn’t sure how much of his own end was a bluff.

OOC: If I could get a brief bit of info regarding our objective here, that would be great.
