Kiama listened closely to the two women, her gaze fixed to the fields outside the aircraft, before asking with curiosity, “Why hasn’t it been a focus?” In her experience radiation was one thing all civilisations worked with and focused on at one point or another. And while these people were in theory a pre-warp civilisation now, they hadn’t always been. So she had assumed that at least at some point in their past, they would have worked with it.

“Our energy is principally renewable. Geothermal. Solar. Tidal. Fusion and other types that account for radiation we’ve abandoned long ago.” She shrugged and looked at Naim. “Perhaps we have blinders. Tell me why it is a practical study?” They soon left the fields behind. They could tell that Knots was going faster on the way back than on the way there but she wasn’t concerned. Soon they could see the city and the Visitor Center that was where they began. There would be just enough time for a reply before they landed.

“Sometimes we get so used to having certain technologies around that we forget what it might be like to not have them,” Faye said. “No one says you have to study alternate forms. Radiation exists beyond just a power source. Do your science fields allow you to explore beyond the known? How do you limit your curiosity?” she asked curiously. There was certainly no condemnation in her tone. If anything there was understanding and curiosity.

Knots got out of the machine and looked at the setting sun, but still helping with getting the findings out of the storage space. “That’s strange,” she commented about the piece of ancient metal, but then turned her attention to Faye. “We know, at least for now, that we’re not going out there and so we focus on what is here. There is so much to learn about our world and system. Every time we peel back a layer there is another one there. And there is a thrust to work at bettering what we have while helping our quality of life. With what we do how can we live better lives?”

While unloading all the samples they took, Kiama listened thoughtfully to the other two women.

“I know you must be back to your ship and I must rest. I’d be happy to meet again tomorrow. Maybe in sleeping on it we’ll each have other ideas? I must get to my bed. Be well.”
- Knots

“Hopefully we will,” Naim replied with a smile and then bowed. “Be well too.” She was confused by Knots insistence of having to go to bed. But now was not the right time to voice her confusion. That should and could wait till they were back on the Manhattan.

At that moment, the comms activated. =^= Attention crew of the Manhattan. All personnel who have been dealing directly with the Gravian people, or who have conducted first hand scans on behalf of the ship or the inhabitants, are to meet in the Confereance at 2000 hours for debrief and planning. That is all. =^= came the Captain’s voice.

Maree was collecting her things and was moving to a ground vehicle. “20:00. Is that long? In a way I envy you. I’ve never seen the stars in a night sky.”

“Soon,” Faye said. “It was nice meeting you. I hope we can work together some more. I expect we’ll come back with more questions.”

Tapping her combadge, Kiama replied =/\= Understood Sir. Naim out. =/\= She then looked straight at Faye, her eyebrows raised and asked, “Shall we gather our things and head back to the ship? And I’m curious to hear what you’ve learned.”

~Lt.jg. Naim, aCSO

Calloway nodded as they headed back for the shuttle that would take them back to the Manhattan.

OOC: We’ve talked OOC and decided to just do the recap at the meeting.

~Faye Calloway, Data Specialist

The shuttle ride was without incident. In the growing darkness they could see the twinkle of lights from streetlights and other lighting, but, eerily, nothing moved.
