The small man took a few more careful steps up the hill to get a better look it seems of the away team at the top. Now about 15 or so feet away, with the rest of the natives still holding position about 30-40 feet among the junk laying about he spoke again, =/\= Va’s agents from the Heavens taught us much about strength of arms and working the land and resources on our planet. If you are not servants of the Feddoomers,” He said indicating the human members nearby like Glen and such, “..then what are you in standing to them?” he asked.
Glen found it difficult to hold his tongue. He wanted to reply, but he knew that the answers would sound better coming from Pashi. He just hoped that the others would remember what he had just instructed and would hold their tongues too.
Hunter simply looked on ,as of now only words were being exchanged .
“Pashi,” Glen asked, “The XO is suggesting that we tell them our engineer is most interested in taking a look at their mines. He thinks that no miner has ever given up the chance to talk about mines and mining!”
Max was very interested in taking a look at the mines. He was always willing to help find ideas and design things to help make things safer. He was ready to start talking to the miners about what was going on. He waited for a response from the captain about who he needed to have a nice discussion with.
Pashi turned and addressed the group “They are my travelling companions. I have one who would be most interested in visiting your mines. The individual is an engineer and is fascinated with mines. Perhaps you could show this individual your mines; give the individual and myself a tour and explain your techniques and perhaps we could explain our techniques. Learn from each other.”

The man seemed to consider the request. He did not seem exactly against it but more like he was caught between a rock and a hard place wishing to carry it out. His glance back at the taller woman and her supporters who seemed more keen to beat up the landing party if given the chance seemed to echo this. Turning back to Pashi he continued, =/\= I see, it is true that through Va’s agents from the stars, up till their recent return to His Heavens we have expanded greatly on our deep rock mining across much of our known living space. Some say it has not been a kind experience to Va’s body..=/\= He said gesturing indicating maybe that Va’s body related to a religious view of the planet. Much like humans would view ‘Mother Earth’ in some ways. =/\= However, those like myself who say such are fewer then those who took a stronger belief in Va’s agent teachings of hard work, and strength. Perhaps though if you and say another one or two of your party were willing to meet in our village for further discussions I could convince those with me to take your interested party member to our nearer mines. Would this be agreeable to you? =/\= He asked.
OOC: Ok for the sake of getting moving a bit faster 1) id like least pashi, the co OR xo, and one science person going for such a talk in the village (you can even throw in a NE guard or two), 2) For the engineer going to the mine same thing but someone also from medical would be good. Beyond this everyone else (player wise) can be divided as needed between both events.
Joe being some distance from the UT's and the conversation in general stood waiting. Although he couldn't understand the language he could tell by the tone and body language of the villagers that their attitudes for the most part seemed to be softening so he kept his eyes shifting back and forth between the villagers and the landing party awaiting any forthcoming orders from the captain.
