Sllryo observed the away team with that reptilian like cold expression for a few moments before tilting their head. Any telepathically gifted could catch a very faint thought, but from somewhere distant. After a momentary pause they said, “I’ve been instructed to bring you to our space command center. We do not have a building strictly for the study of space, but one where all of our operations are run. The view of your ship can be seen on a larger screen there and of our tending vessels can be directed from such a place.”

With the absence of thoughts or emotions among their hosts, the faint thought popped out like a beam to Avik. Her mind locked onto the ripple among the calm, empty sea. Any attempts to trace it back to the source failed immediately, inwardly she cursed her inept abilities. Nox would’ve easily caught her shift from calm to uncomfortable before Sllryo spoke. Unable to speak of it in front of their group without revealing something was up, she nodded.

“Thank you,” she answered simply, then waited to be led.

Deep down, she hoped Nox or others might have caught Sllryo’s wording. Communications between individuals usually required a device or biological means, but telepathy wasn’t mentioned or used until now. She wondered if someone or something else was guiding these individuals for some reason.

–XO, Avik, Lt. Cmdr

Now that they were going to be on the move, Cassidy refused more intently. At least in the open they had options, but they were going inside a building they knew nothing about and had little information about the customs of these people. There were plenty of places for things to go wrong, so she was prepared to act quickly if need be. But there was only one of her. She couldn’t be everywhere at once.

Abrams, COS

“Do you have any devices that can get a person into orbit?” Marsh looked over, at zero power, the ship would cool and the crew would suffocate in their carbon dioxide. But most pressing was the status of their orbit, it could be decaying and bring them done in hours… while the ship cooling might take a day before it became fatal…

Sienna felt the same ripple that Avik felt and just as unfortunately, she could not follow the thread. She could tell that Avik grew nervous about the unknown source of telepathy. The Counselor turned and walked beside Sllyro and continued in her conversational tone. “I do not see any communication device. Do your people have some sort of empathic or telepathic abilities? Extra sensory abilities are common in some species who have joined the Federation.”

Nox, CNS

Sllryo led the way down the paved path away from the monolithic tower. They first addressed Marsh’s question while the escorts formed an oval formation around Sllyro and the away team. “Our means of conveyance into space is upon a magnetically accelerated capsule. Our station in orbit will grapple the capsule with a magnetized tether and pull it into merging with itself. If any of us need to return from the station then they ride the capsule back down where it is then caught it a magnetized lattice of webbing.”

Orbital elevator, that was a neat trick, what it didn’t allow for was a to another ship transport. “And from there do you have any space craft. A shuttle, hell, I’ll take a space suit and a thruster pack.” He thought for a moment. “A seven gigawatt power source, some magnetic couplers, universal adapter… although that’s on the ship. A laser torch, powered lamp.” Marsh looked over.

“Its an ask, but if I can get to the ship - I certainly can reimburse any expense or material loss.”

Sllyro then turned to address Nox. “As the Great Cycle is our way of life, so to is it that which binds all of us together. We have no ‘factions’ because each of us understands every member of our race completely and irrefutably. Everyone works towards the good of the race. This makes it difficult to interact with those not of our kind, but when we discovered how to travel at speeds and distances before never that possible, we knew we had to prepare for the eventuality to meet other life. The timing of that was much sooner than expected however. Our preparations were not completed.”
