Thomas nodded, and headed for a (relatively) quiet corner.
=/\=McGregor to Genesis, calling for the Captain.=/\=
=^=Yes, Mister McGregor, Go for the Captain,” Calvin responded.
<After talk with CO>
The director, Beth, moved towards the away team, her face beaming. She spoke jubilantly, “Was that a successful flight or not?”
“Bravo ma’am. It seems to have met your expectations. Congratulations.” Reia said.

Ben’s uneasy feeling about the test flight was quite disguised. Ben applauded at the achievement that this had happened successfully. At the same time, he was concerned about any other tests performing done at this facility. He felt it best to not mention any concern about his baseless feelings of concern. He needed more information to determine if staying here any longer is possible or not.
Beth came forward and said, “The rest of the test is routine. The ship coming back to our facility can be monitored by the other staff. Now, how can I be of service?”
She looked around and said, “Perhaps I can start first … I am dying to know: Where do you come from?“
“We come from very far away and not all of us are from the same place.”
Reia knew she was being vague but, the intel officer in her was still a bit leary of giving too many details.

“To be a little more specific, the planet our government is on is located several million light years coreward from here,” Thomas added.
OOC: I think we are, anyway. We’re in the unexplored bits of the beta quadrant, right?
=^=Away Team this is the Captain is there a receiving site for a diplomatic team of three?=^= This was the Captain’s way of figuring out where he could beam down without freaking out the locals and to alert everyone to the size of the joining team.
=^=Captain this is Lieutenant Park stand by=^= “our Captain would like to travel to see this facility with your permission of course.”
=^=Okay, Lieutenant, Standing By.=^= Marius was a little confused it wasn’t 10 minutes ago they asked for someone with a little more diplomatic experience.
The scientist, Beth, looked very intrigued by the whole exchange but said nothing. From what she gathered, something wonderful was going to happen.
OOC: So cleared to beam down?
=/\=Captain, lock on to my signal and give me two minutes,=/\= Thomas said, moving for the entrance to the mountain. Hopefully, the Captain beaming down there would minimize any fuss and allow them to maintain the fiction that they’d arrived through some other means.
