“Well, something conspiratorial, so it could fit, though I think Stark will be sleeping in his own quarters tonight,” she replied with a grin and a wink.

It dawned on Stark the relevance of the comment now, as it was also beginning to dawn on him that the vast majority of humanoids had an abject and somewhat mystifying fascination with bedroom jokes and toilet humour.. in that order.

Ghubari gazed for a long moment at her husband, pondering. “We’re inviting a possible enemy into our carefully protected home, ‘Ral. Best we figure it, the only way for us to go on the offensive here and make any headway with the Conclave is to outright do something that draws their attention. I’m going to ping Eliza’s name in the system in the hope that any search for a Price family member will be monitored. After that though, we don’t know what sort of reaction that will have and I want to be prepared. Stark pointed out that we have no way to rule out the possibility of a Conclave member already being on the ship, and for that reason, I need the two of you to work out extra security measures that are… inconspicuous. We have civilians on this ship. Families. We must protect them from getting stuck in any crossfire at all costs.”

“Well, the first and most easiest set up would increase our response time and ability to have lock downs, and with that misdirection protocols to try and mislead people if needed. This can allow us to create force fields much easier to keep people locked down. As for catching them, I would suggest maybe we create a honeypot system.” he said as he looked at the two and wasn’t sure if the analogy might have been evident.

Stark raised an eyebrow in inquiry.

“This comes from my skills in engineering, a honeypot in tech terms is the idea of a computer system that seems to have tough, but not impossible to rack security with information that culprits might want to grab. They find the network with these easier to hack security and then it alerts us and before they have a chance to realize everything they have is fake we can pounce on them.”

“I like it,” he said simply, “and we have plenty to offer up as bait”.

Ghubari tapped the side of her index finger against her generous lower lip as she worked through the permutations of Konral’s idea. At length, she nodded. “Okay. I’m liking this as well. As maybe the simplest thing to do to start is plant information about Eliza. Maybe I ping the database for extra information, maybe I don’t, but perhaps letting them think we know more than we do will cause them to react.”
