As she worked Rende took in what they knew, both from the initial information gathered before they came down and now as the events unfolded. Something was nagging at her, and over the centuries (wouldn’t the rest of the ship have a heart attack if they knew) she had learned to trust her gut. Dropping her voice to a just barely audible whisper (as this activated her person to person comm unit), Eldorin would hear her in his ear, “Eldorin, isn’t this a little reminiscent of say, Belfast 1974?” One piece of hold-over El-Aurian technology that she and Eldorin still used. After all these years it just didn’t feel right to not be a voice inside each others’ ears.

He cleared his throat and spoke in an equally low volume and he breathed in slowly before exhaling, “It does, and here I thought we put that life behind us long ago. Rende what are we going to do?” The implication was not that they were out of options or that there was some woeful circumstance they were in, but that he wanted to double check with his wife before they started reverting to their old ways.

She was scouting ahead of her team at this point, but still her voice was low so that the ear piece would activate. “Well we aren’t going to get involved. It’s not just us, but the ship. The surface similarities are too obvious though. We have no way of knowing though, with this advanced technology, what the sides really look like. The armory chief and your En El were joking about alternate time lines and universes…like it was fiction. They have no idea. They have their own language but also very similar to Earth. Could that be a possibility?” Eldorin was a brilliant engineer and had a mind for bigger picture tactics. But if this was a mess up in the time line, they might could fix that.

Rende wasn’t a computer person, she could use them, and this system reminded her of the basic computers she and Eldorin used when they lived on Earth the last time, but it was never her strong suite. Hopefully someone else could make the system work. She moved through the building making sure it was clear and there were no nasty surprises waiting for them. Dropping her voice again as she made her rounds she whispered into the earbud, “Eldorin, they seem to be using an old DOS like system. I was never much good at it, but you on the other hand…”

Eldorin heard his wife and the question she was asking in all but words. “Rende while I’d love to tell you how to use DOS again it’s only been 300 or so years since I had our old NEC in Belfast… Let me delve into the depths of my memory.” He said with an annoyed chuckle. This was bringing back so many memories and experiences that were both refreshing and terrifying. “Rende.... I know we’re not going to get involved it’s just been such a longtime and I hoped that we were passed this.”

Eldorin, CE
