“It’s about time for a check in anyway,” Kate said causally. Maybe if the Wiz saw how laid back her captain was he would relax too. Kate just hoped Calin was as laid back as she was imagining.

Tapping her comm badge Kate smiled hoping it would build more confidence. =/\=Captain Calin=/\= she started the conversation in a tone far more indicative of social call than a professional one. Glancing over at the Wiz and Lissi, Kate nodded with a smile.

=/\=Captain we have made some progress on our away mission. Right now we are in…negotiations.=/\= Kate tone’s was similar to the one where she reported at the end of the night that she gave his two girls an extra cookie before bed when she was babysitting. It was the tone that said she didn’t go against orders but bent them slight to achieve the end goal.

=/\= Our contact,=/\= she was careful not to drop the Wiz’s name just yet publically. Keeping names under wraps was often a huge conveyance of trust in this situations. =/\= has been sharing some information with us however there are concerns about Federation…retaliation…so I have given a few assurances of amnesty and possible asylum if needed.=/\= Kate tried not to cringe as she said the words. Calin was a phenomenal boss that gave wide latitude on the job but he still was the boss. Kate had been on the crew of the Odin for a couple of years now but amnesty and asylum had never come up before. There wa a first time for everything so she waited patiently for her CO to respond.

Kate COS

Wiz moved uncomfortably as Kate spoke.

Lissi waited with the others for the check in. As she checked her own PaDD she noted a message that the ship they were wondering about was ready for boarding. She nodded to Kate and turned back to the kid. “Can you show us where the ship is? I’m sure being able to report on its status would help out immensely.” The fact it had already been found and cleared by the Odin was something she wasn’t quite ready to divulge yet, for her own reasons of security and trust. If he was willing to show them where it was, then she wasn’t stepping on toes just wandering up to it with the kid in tow.

Wiz said, “It should not be a problem to tell you now that she has departed. She was berthed with its cloaking device on at the second platform above this planetoid, just a little ways from the starfleet ship. She would be quite a ways off.”

What Wiz did not know was that the ship was already boarded by the Odin’s boarding party.

GM

Lissi wasn’t aware the ship was already in the custody of the Odin as she tapped her comm badge. =^=Captain, we have a gentleman here who can tell us about the ship we got the tech signals from. He claims he’s lost contact with his Captain, but they were above the planet, cloaked. Request permission to offer asylum and perhaps help him with legit tech to replace the patched stuff he’s been rigging from scrap.=^=

Technically they weren’t giving them tech that was above and beyond their time, Wiz had already been making and using it and maintaining it. She hoped the Captain would realize that. And would also realize the kid was being helpful.

Wiz looked a little worried. “I didn’t say I wanted asylum …” he muttered.

GM

=/\= What are they needing?=/\= Calin responded, wanting to at least see what they were requesting first in hopes to think more. Giving away technology was seldom the way Starfleet worked but they needed the answers and they were running out of time.

Calin, CO

As the Captain fell silent, Lissi smiled at Wiz. “When we say asylum, it’s more for a give and take prospective. If your Captain tried to take it out on you that we got info from you, we could protect you. But it also helps in case our leaders try and say you are a problem. By giving you asylum we can protect you from them to a certain extent as well. And it helps when it comes to giving you additional help. Like giving you things to help make your life easier.”

She smiled. It was a bit more complicated than that, but it was a start. “So what kinds of things would you like help with? You mentioned movers. Are there any other things you’ve built from the scraps of our tech that you use regularly? I can’t guarantee we get you everything, but the better the list, the better we have at finding things to help you with.” She wasn’t sure how much they could help. But at least the mover should be easy enough. She hoped…

“But the cap is a good man!” he wailed in dismay. “He won’t betray me. Are you telling me to betray him?!!”

GM

Wiz looked unsure. These people said they would help but they were asking him to betray someone he respected very much.

GM

Lissi couldn’t help it, she smiled brightly and shook her head biting back a laugh. “Ok, so this is why I am not a diplomat. No, Wiz. I would… we,” she motioned the others as well, “would never ask you to betray anyone or anything you didn’t want to. Let me try this again. I would love to help you. I want to give you some things that would allow you to help your people without having to pull from scraps and jury rigged technology. How’s that, instead?” She mentally shook her head and wondered how the Command staff did it. They always managed to be both diplomatic and persuasive as the same time.
