To explore new frontiers, to experience new realities, to embrace new worlds… and embrace the life on them, be it women, men or something else.

It’s a small thrust for you… but a huge plunge for Sakkilian kind!

>Risks of tampering with the armor to disable it
Yeah, I agree. I don't feel comfortable with tampering with something that's meant to keep someone alive. Let's just leave it alone.

>Yes, those tights Tizli is wearing are nice. They leave little to the imagination, don’t they?
You guess they need to keep their… “ball” joints free from obstruction, because you swear you’ve seen her rotate her legs more than 360 degrees. Not that you’re going to complain if she shows a bit of scale, though…
>[sarcasm]Yes, invite the species with no eyes to observe something. I’m sure there isn’t a problem with that at all.[/sarcasm]
…maybe you need to rethink your approach and not rely on your old tricks. Hmm… maybe some music? And some scented candles?
>If you learn nothing else about Admiral Krem’s fate, learn about the importance about keeping a low profile. Sooner or later, we'll need a station to monitor communications to alert us if they send security.
Honestly, you rather try and keep yourself on friendly terms with whoever might be able to call security, so that they’ll never even consider it in the first place.

>We are certainly going to have some issues in the future since that means we have Tizli and her as crew, but we will certainly be testing and proving our commander ability by navigating those waters.
Having Tizli and Tozlan on the same crew as Eki will definitely be challenging… you’ll need to keep them separated for now... and hope that time will mellow things out? Hmm… you definitely need a better plan than that…
>When haven't you been treating her like an honorary Ensign?
When you locked her in her room, like a prisoner? Or when you shot her down and captured her?
>Since she doesn't mind too much, why don't you tell her she'll keep her slave title (and slave-like low rank duties) for appearances' sake, but you're going to give her more trust and privileges.
…you rather not get a reputation of being a slaver. That would damage our possible Xeno relations in the future, after all.
>Slavery isn't going to last. Your peers probably wouldn't stand for it in the long run.
While you can’t say how the Xeno’s will react, you do know for a fact that Sakkilian in general are not the biggest supporters of the subject. We’re known for our love of workers’ rights and fair work environments… so as soon as you get something like 10 Sakkilian’s on board you’re to expect things like unions to start popping up.
>Keep it to the bedroom.
…wait, do you mean the slavery or the unions? Because only one of those is really sexy… well, that’s not true… you’re sure you can make unions sexy too, if you put your mind to it… hmm…


>Hug that girl. Hug her and don't let go until she's feeling at least a little better. Things have been rough for her.
You sit down behind her and embrace her, letting your arm envelop her body into protective shell and placing your head on top of hers. The two of you sit there in silence for some time before the tranquility is broken by her soft voice…
:IkekekiSA: …thanks… I needed that…
>Admiral Krem must have treated his slaves quite well for her to be still enthusiastic about being one.
:IkekekiSA: He didn’t treat them any worse than he did anyone else… it felt like… they just became part of the crew as well, you know…

>Let's put it like this: You will be on parole. Someone, probably Doxy, will keep an eye on you, as a formality, given our recent encounters and our Raomole friends on board. If you show that you know how to behave and don't fight with the rest of the crew for some time, i will formally welcome you as a true ensign.
:IkekekiSA: Oh, that sounds… good? Kekeke, I guess I really did impress you then, captain.
:ZentoSA: You did.
:IkekekiSA: Then I promise to be the mightiest part-ole that you’ve ever had the pleasure of sailing with!
>You will be assigned to scan duty for now, you seem to be good at that.
:IkekekiSA: Scanner duty? I… guess? It beats going full planetlubber and doing farm work.
:ZentoSA: What would you rather do then?
:IkekekiSA: To sail through the stars and collect booty?
>How does she feel about mining duty?
:IkekekiSA: Oh! That would be fun! To fly through the stars and dig up treasure full of doubloons! Though… um… maybe not while I’m this dry… I… I honestly feel like I’ve got scurvy…
:ZentoSA: I see…
:IkekekiSA: So maybe you can make that Aqua armor first?

>Well if we do make it, it would only be after we get the security room, and we'd have to put limits on where she can wear it; I imagine it would be all too easy for her to overpower our currently-unarmed crew while wearing that thing, and despite being an honorable sort, don't think she won't be tempted to at least assume command by right of combat.
:IkekekiSA: I swear on the pirate code that I wouldn’t keelhaul any of your crew for their booty, captain! But… I can understand your… um… hesitation.

:IkekekiSA: …so what does part-ole even mean? Is that like… soon to be recruited slave?
:ZentoSA: It’s a conditional release of a prisoner. In this case, you will be kept under scrutiny and if you can prove that you can behave and be a good girl, you’re a free shrimp.
:IkekekiSA: So… a prisoner that tried out to be a crewmember… and not a slave?
:ZentoSA: No slaves, Eki.
:IkekekiSA: …and what is a shrimp?
:ZentoSA: Err… never mind that.
:IkekekiSA: …is that like a slave?
:ZentoSA: *Sigh*
:IkekekiSA: I’m kidding, I’m kidding. Kekeke, I’m not that obsessed with slaves.

>I personally don't like the idea of owning slaves. I do however, have a thing for xenos. So, like i said before, if you are a good girl, I’ll ask your help to increase the ships population. And we can keep the slave thing as a roleplay.
:IkekekiSA: Eh? Oh… um… err… w-wait, what do you mean with increasing the ships population?
:ZentoSA: Shara was helping us increasing the ships population earlier, so… you know…
:IkekekiSA: …OH! OH! YOU MEAN! WITH ME!?
:ZentoSA: If you wish to, of course.
:IkekekiSA: Err… I… um… I’ll… think… about it?
:ZentoSA: Please, consider it thoroughly… and don’t feel like you’re being forced too… this is completely about what you want, Eki.
:IkekekiSA: …It just a bit… sudden… but… um… I’ll think about it?

>With how poorly Ikekeki is looking, we ought to see about getting that Kelshin terminal hooked up and operational today, though we best be careful and figure out exactly what kind of power it requires; Don't want to smoke it by pulling the equivalent of plugging a 110V appliance into a 220V socket.
It already got its own power source, so you don’t need to worry about that. What you need to worry about is that most of its memory seems to have been fried, which makes it hard to figure out what exactly is in this scrambled mess. Of course, if you know what you’re looking for its significantly easier, with you only need to type in “Aqua armor” to find something that look like a schematic. You’ll need to take some time to figure out what else might be on the terminal, though.
>Actually, Ikekeki would probably be of help getting it working and operating it, since it's both designed for Kelshin and using their language.
Hmm… maybe you should ask Doxy to take a look through it with Eki later. That seems like a good idea.


>Let's go see Regina next.
You find her in the hanger, polishing some of the tools. You guess she finds it calming?
:ReginaSA: Yes, dear?
:ZentoSA: I just wanted to check if you’re doing alright, Ensign Regina.
:ReginaSA: …well, hun, I’m a bit high strung still, but I’m sure I’ll calm down soon enough.
:ZentoSA: That’s good to hear.
:ReginaSA: I’m looking forward towards the celebration later. A few drinks and some friends will help me destress in no time, sir.
:ZentoSA: That’s in part why I wanted to celebrate. Do drink responsible, though.
:ReginaSA: Of course, hun.

>Get someone on the crew with engineering experience to take a close look at the Aqua Armor specs and figure out how to make sure it just helps her satisfy her biological needs, without being a tactical advantage.
:ReginaSA: Um… while it doesn’t give her that much of a tactical advantage, the things that do are essential to the suit, hun. If she’s not covered in armor plating the water won’t stay put while removing the mechanical muscle structure will just make her immovable. So no, that’s not possible. If she’s to wear this you’re just going have to live with her wearing armor and being slightly stronger than everyone else, dear.
>Maybe an emergency means to disable it's motor systems, depending on how powerful the "power" armor is. Electronics installed in her suit to lock movements by remote... or codeword...
:ReginaSA: …I can easily put in a kill switch that’s voice activated.
>We’d pretty much be giving her a wearable prison if we did anything like that! And if our modifications mess up the armor, it might not work properly or it could possibly kill her!
:ReginaSA: …I was thinking of just disabling the legs. That wouldn’t kill her, hun, but… well, she would be stuck in a prison until we got her out of the suit, I suppose… but only after we use the codeword, of course.
:ZentoSA: Hmm… it might be prudent to have the extra security… but it might put Eki at risk…
:ReginaSA: It’s up to you, sir.
>Because her and the Raolme still have the “Hated Enemies” status towards each other, we’d have to make sure neither of the Raolme mess with it to make it hurt Ikekeki.
:ReginaSA: Just don’t tell them the code word, hun?
>A temporary stopgap measure might be to fabricate a large water tub and the plumbing to install it in Ikekeki's quarters.
:ReginaSA: …we’re not building a large tub of water in a hyperspace faring ship without the necessary facilities to contain said water in place, hun. It’s a disaster waiting to happen, trust me. If you want a tub of water, build a proper swimming hall… otherwise said water will end up in the ceiling or something after a while…
>Surely the captain's quarters has a bathtub, right?
…why would your quarters be any different from the rest of the crew?


:ReginaSA: Actually, hun, there is something you can do for me.
:ZentoSA: Yes, Regina?
:ReginaSA: Now that we’ve collected a bit more crew, it might be time to start assign people to less essential yet necessary jobs. I’ve been doing some basic maintenance when I have the time for example, but it would be great if you would have someone doing it properly, dear.
:ZentoSA: Hmm, you’re correct. I might need to assign someone to do some extra cleaning too… the automatic systems work for the most part, we still need someone to remove whatever it misses…
:ReginaSA: And when we’re on the subject, maybe getting a few more engineers around? If we ever find some Xeno trade post or something, maybe hire a few? Just getting a few new faces around here wouldn’t be all too bad either, hun.
:ZentoSA: I’ll see what I can do.

>Can we vote on construction yet?
While you might plan ahead a bit, you’re not going to start constructing anything until tomorrow. So far you’ve only thought about the security station and a sun deck / swimming hall combo… if you can find some more Basic Metals in the asteroids that is.
Though more importantly, do you synth up an Aqua Armor for Eki or not?

>>1015958
Ah, it's only "slightly stronger", which means she won't be able to fight the whole crew. So yeah go ahead, and leave the killswitch out. Just make it clear to her that if another fight breaks out between her and the Raolmes, she is not to use the armor's strength to fight back. It's fine if the armor is damaged, it's not fine if the crew is damaged.

>>1015958
Make that armor, and don't install any countermeasures. It's a risk, but she needs the water to work and live a healthy life, and the countermeasures could probably be used by someone else if we're not careful. Besides, something like that full of water is bound to be slow enough that outrunning it should be possible, and she's outnumbered in a firefight. Just don't get stepped or sat on by it, and you'll be fine.

I think we should abstain from synthesizing the aqua immersion suit until she is able to appreciate the swimming hall for a day or two, as to be much happier when the suit is presented to her by Zento. Perhaps more importantly, we don’t want Tozlan and Tizli questioning Cpt. Zento’s command capability after being disturbed by the “prisoner”’s sudden increase in privileges, and an actuated armoured suit would likely cause them unease regardless of it’s function. If we aren’t able to have the swimming deck built tomorrow, though, it’s definitely better to just give her the suit rather than making the poor crab wait more.

>>1015958
>aqua armor
Just give it to Ikekeki as is. Don’t add any fail safes or anything like that.

>Regina
Let her know that you know of another way she can destress. She can come to your room for a special private “party” for just the two of you. But only if she’d feel up to it, you don’t want to force her or anything.

>Eggs/Clones: 3/10
Huh? When did we get a 3rd egg? Did one of the pregnant ladies lay a second egg or something?

Speaking of eggs, we still haven’t decided on a name for Zento’s and Doxy’s egg. I still think Vex would be a good name!

>>1015985
>If we aren’t able to have the swimming deck built tomorrow, though, it’s definitely better to just give her the suit rather than making the poor crab wait more.
It’s already been established that the swimming hall isn’t going to be finished until the day after tomorrow.

>Hmm… you definitely need a better plan than that…
It would help if the ship had a section that would help lower their defenses; literal common ground to establish peace. A Swimming Hall for all shows less blatant favoritism than Power Armor for one. Does it come have a hot tub and sauna?

>He didn’t treat them any worse than he did anyone else… it felt like… they just became part of the crew as well, you know…
Then it seems you and the Pirate Lord had a lot in common. Expect to meet a lot of claimants, biological or otherwise, to his throne. That title cannot be a stable position.

>To sail through the stars and collect booty?
So she put her proficiency in Survival (Wis)? Her scan rolls did look like it had a circumstance bonus. wait, too gamey, uh...
Is that what she calls mining planets for materials? She must have gotten lucky with scan duty because she knows how pirates tick.

>Just getting a few new faces around here wouldn’t be all too bad either, hun.
"So Regina, how are you getting on with the other crewmembers? Jealous of Shara taking Zell, or is your preference to clone yourself if need arises?"

Nothing against her, but you're already carrying baggage for 3 complicated relationships. If it's another alien princess, sweet, but literally everyone asking for a piece of you would be exhausting. Not that you'd say no if she asks for it anyway...

>>1015986
Regina did have to test cloning, somehow. Could she have done it when she built the thing? Or did she set up an AI routine to clone on death, and it tripped up when her cruiser went critical?
>>
No. 1015992 ID: f8fa51

She's not going to be superhuman. Slightly stronger is one thing, but unlikely to best actual weapons. Yes to the armour, no to countermeasures. Also no to letting her have weapons, though.

Let's do it. Without the fail safe. She'll have to be more responsible with it tho.

After the celebration, we should focus on getting more materials to construct the new facilities. They should increase the overall moral of the crew.

Make it, make sure it's possible to add the code word later (if that has to be decided in advance), but don't actually add any code word. If she misbehaves with it at any point, or if she expresses any interest in playing in other ways, we can always change our minds later.

>Don’t you think those “ball” joints look kinda like a butt? You like big butts and you cannot lie about that.
Big butts, small butts, any butt in between... be it a Lizbutt, Robutt or Bugbutt, you do love them all. You can’t wait to sample some of the more exotic butts as this “adventure” goes on.
>It seems you and the Pirate Lord had a lot in common. Expect to meet a lot of claimants, biological or otherwise, to his throne. That title cannot be a stable position.
…is it even a heritable title? For all you know you’re a pirate lord as soon as you get a fleet of pirate ships. But knowing pirates, you have no doubt that you’re going to find his bastard kids in every port he’s visited.

>It would help if the ship had a section that would help the Raolme and Kelshin lower their defenses; literal common ground to establish peace. A Swimming Hall for all shows less blatant favoritism than Power Armor for one.
You wouldn’t say its favoritism when it concerns someone’s health, but even then you’re thinking about building both, to make sure both parties will be satisfied.
>Does it come have a hot tub and sauna?
The swimming hall comes with a lot of different pools and habitats of different temperatures, while the sun deck will have at least a dry sauna… though if you combine them, it wouldn’t be hard to build a wet sauna either.


>Ah, it's only "slightly stronger", which means she won't be able to fight the whole crew.
:ReginaSA: While it’s far from the usual power armor we use, it’s will still be strong enough to beat Shara in a little wrestling tussle, hun. But if there were two Sharas? Then I wouldn’t know who to bet on.
:ZentoSA: ...so it has the strength of two well-trained women, huh?
>Besides, something like that full of water is bound to be slow enough that outrunning it should be possible, and she's outnumbered in a firefight.
:ReginaSA: I’m not sure, dear, but going by the schematic it seems to be surprisingly agile. Still, it will probably not move faster than jogging speed, so a well-trained man like yourself would have no problem outrunning it, sir.
>Just don't get stepped or sat on by it, and you'll be fine.
… … …by the suit, of course. You don’t want to be crushed by the armor. You wouldn’t mind if any of the ladies would step on your or sit on you otherwise.

>Just make it clear to her that if another fight breaks out between her and the Raolmes, she is not to use the armor's strength to fight back. It's fine if the armor is damaged, it's not fine if the crew is damaged.
:ReginaSA: Damage the armor? It’s made out of synth-steel, you’re not going to punch… um… well, I heard from Shara that those blind aliens have really sharp claws, so maybe… though I also heard that the shrimp girl didn’t fight back at all as well, so… problem already solved, hun?
:ZentoSA: Hmm… as long as Eki doesn’t get too big of a head from wearing the armor.
>Make that armor, and don't install any countermeasures. It's a risk, but she needs the water to work and live a healthy life, and the countermeasures could probably be used by someone else if we're not careful.
:ReginaSA: I’ll set the Fabricator to build it during the night. It should be finished in the morning, dear.
>Make sure it's possible to add the code word later (if that has to be decided in advance), but don't actually add any code word.
:ReginaSA: …give me an hour and access to it, and I’ll give it a kill switch whenever you need it, no problem, hun.


>Can we make one of the Salkilian that have born today and engineer?
It’s sadly a bit too late for that. They are already cooking in the Vats.
>Nothing against Regina, but you're already carrying baggage for 3 complicated relationships. If it's another alien princess, sweet, but literally everyone asking for a piece of you would be exhausting.
If you’re considering making new crew with Regina then it will be purely for professional reasons. It is your duty as Captain to make sure that you always have enough manpower and that all your crew mentally relaxed… wait, speaking of princesses… didn’t Tozlan say he was some kind of prince? Doesn’t that mean Tizli is a princess? …you really need to ask them about that before you accidently knock Tizli up with the next King of their people or something…

>So Regina, how are you getting on with the other crewmembers?
:ReginaSA: Not bad, all thing considered, dear. Zell is an old grump, Shara is too proud for her own good and I haven’t really interacted with that blind alien boy, though he is kind of cute, I suppose. I did have a rather nice gossip session with that adorable little Tizli, though. I do like her…
:ZentoSA: That’s good to hear.
>Jealous of Shara taking Zell, or is your preference to clone yourself if need arises?
:ReginaSA: …dear, why would I be jealous? I’m not some youngling who’s starved for affection… or looking for a serious relationship for that matter. Besides, Zell reminds me a bit of my old hubby… though nowadays I’d rather prefer someone a bit younger, someone that’s lively and has some spirit.
:ZentoSA: …hubby? You’re married?
:ReginaSA: Was married, hun. He died a few years ago… well, a lot of years ago now, what with the galaxy jump, but either way it’s in the past. Have two kids as well, though they’ve both grown up and left the nest a long time ago.
>Let her know that you know of another way she can destress. She can come to your room for a special private “party” for just the two of you. But only if she’d feel up to it, you don’t want to force her or anything.
:ReginaSA: Hmhm, is that really your move, hun?
:ZentoSA: I’m sorry if I was to forward, Regina.
:ReginaSA: Forward? Oh, no, not at all… While I am a bit surprised that such a beautiful young man like yourself would be interested in an old tart like me-
:ZentoSA: You know what they say about fine wine…
:ReginaSA: Why, aren’t you a charmer, dear… but going back to my original point, what’s most surprising is that if a virile young man like yourself is so eager to make me a mother again, I’d expect them to simply bend me over the table and make me one. That’s what I did when I was young and saw someone I desired…

After successfully starting the process of making a new engineer, the rest of the day is spent preparing for the celebration later tonight, as well as making sure that Eki’s armor is being fabricated. Your workday ends with a large bowl of salty soup courtesy of Tozlan cooking skills, followed by drinks and snacks on the captain to commemorate today’s victory!

:DoxySA: The “party”, if you want to call it that, is going rather well.
:ZentoSA: I’m happy that our Raolme siblings and Eki manages to be in the same room without fighting for once.
:DoxySA: I think they are trying to stay as far away as they can from each other… though I’m sure they don’t want to spill their drinks arguing either. I’m impressed that you managed to get everyone something to drink on such short notice.
:ZentoSA: The drink the Raolme wanted was easy enough to synth, what with Tozlan being in the kitchen helping me. The “Grog XD” that Eki wanted on the other hand… let just say that thing would eat right through our mugs if I didn’t change the recipe. But it seemed to work out in the end, as everyone is drinking with gusto.
:DoxySA: …I did spot Regina grabbing a non-alcoholic drink, though… do you know why?
:ZentoSA: …I’m sure she has her reasons.
:DoxySA: Of course she does.

>One thing we could attempt to do: work with the Ralome to figure out how much of the salvage is actually theirs. They may feel better knowing they actually have money to their names, again.
:DoxySA: Um… wasn’t all the loot stolen from the Raolme in the first place? Reminding them about that fact might mean they want all of it back.
:ZentoSA: Hmm… though telling them might give you political favor later.
:DoxySA: I’m not sure how their laws might say about this… or if there even is any laws out here.
>Huh? When did we get a 3rd egg? Did one of the pregnant ladies lay a second egg or something?
:DoxySA: A 3rd egg? Oh no, I’m sure you’re just seeing things, sir. Neither me nor Shara laid twins.
:ZentoSA: …you know something about this 3rd egg, don’t you?
:DoxySA: I’m sure it’s just a glitch in the system, honest!
:ZentoSA: Uh huh…
>Speaking of eggs, we still haven’t decided on a name for Zento’s and Doxy’s egg. I still think Vex would be a good name!
:DoxySA: I was going to ask you about that, because I need a name before the end of the hour.
:ZentoSA: …Vex?
:DoxySA: Vex?
:ZentoSA: Vex.
:DoxySA: … … …Vex… yeah, I like it… it’s a super nice name, isn’t it… Vex…
:ZentoSA: Vex it is then.
>After the celebration, we should focus on getting more materials to construct the new facilities. They should increase the overall moral of the crew.
:DoxySA: We need more Basic metals for sure…
:ZentoSA: There should be more than enough of it in these asteroids.
:DoxySA: And the blue planet should have some organic materials.
:ZentoSA: But it will have to wait until tomorrow.


:DoxySA: So are we just going to stand here or are we going to socialize?

That's a great topic. Zento, get to it. Ask her about her family.

Doxy, i have the feeling Rozlan was snooping around when the captain was making the engineer. Let's investigate, he seems to have a soft spot for the ladies here.

The most obvious reason Eki would ask for something like that is because she's consumed it before and her biology allows her to consume it safely.

captain can start with tizili and doxy can start with her brother since both the siblings are already fairly familiar with them. Plus I'm sure tizili has some questions for the captain seeing what she heard the other day in the hanger.

Insist on the egg. If it's a baby monster egg scavenged from the scuttled remains of the pirates, fine. But you need to know.

>If you’re considering making new crew with Regina then it will be purely for professional reasons.
That goes triple for Shara, as in she'll need three more eggs to personally man her own Sakkilian Cruiser. And if Zell isn't up to the task, remind her that you're decent "competition" yourself and you don't mind "losing" ;)

Actually, this may be too soon for Shara. She just laid her egg. It's not like women get stronger and taller as they lay more eggs, do they? How's Doxy holding up?

>…you really need to ask them about that before you accidently knock Tizli up with the next King of their people or something…
Warn Doxy about this too. That goes double for her, since "princess" can mean different things between matriarchal and patriarchal cultures, if they take gender seriously at all. She should look into how serious a relationship he wants and why he'd want kids. Preempt spawn custodial conflicts with a prenup!

>I’m not some youngling who’s starved for affection… or looking for a serious relationship for that matter. Besides, Zell reminds me a bit of my old hubby…
It'd still be nice if they'd develop a closer work relationship. He can better utilize her engineering, she can learn from his field experience to refine her work to be more durable and repairable. We can't keep wrecked ships, there's only so much room on our docks.

>I’m sure it’s just a glitch in the system, honest!
Very well, assign someone to look into it tomorrow then. I suspect mis-accounting errors like this will keep cropping up if we keep crewmembers too busy with morning orders. Regina did say they should be professional enough to handle general maintenance provided free hours, and it helps to have a some free crew on hand for emergencies.

Can we stockpile eggs, like keep them in stasis til we need them?

>Vex
Dr. Vex does have a nice ring to it. Just hope he becomes the ethical kind of doctor or scientist.

>…not everything needs to be your “Captain’s duty”, Zento.
Hold on. Are you... jealous? Regina isn't looking for anything serious, and...

...I admit I have been fond of our "night briefings". We can keep having them regardless if they end up "productive", and forgo oversight of the "project I assigned" to Regina. But in regards to our current and future alien friends, understand I'm not able to spend every night in my quarters.

Zento is supposed to be the tallest, scariest, most cryptic looking Sakkilian multiplied by 2, so I’d like to see him be a little intimidating here.

Have him tower over Doxy and insist that if she knows something about a 3rd egg, she should tell him now. But if it’s honestly just a glitch, then apologize for doubting her.

>split up
Zento go visit with Zell and Tolzan.

Doxy go visit with Shara and Tizli.

>Ikekeki and Regina are hanging out.
I guess since Ikekeki helped save Regina, that helped them form a bond of friendship. Maybe through Regina, Tizli and Ikekeki can work things out? I’m not expecting them to become instant best friends, but hopefully they’ll at least stop being hostile to each other.

>Zento is supposed to be the tallest, scariest, most cryptic looking Sakkilian multiplied by 2.
While you are the tallest Sakkilian man you’ve ever met, that still puts you at about equal high of the taller ladies around, like Shara. As for being scary… well, you don’t really try to, but your dark scales combined with your stoic nature does unnerve people at times…
>Say, we had a spectator, or listener in this case. Who do you think it was?
…you thought you saw something green moving around outside the hanger, but you’re not sure…
>Can we stockpile eggs, like keep them in stasis until we need them?
We can always place the eggs in a cryo-pod… or just let them mature normally. It takes about 2 months for an egg to hatch normally, after all.


>Can't fight my nature. I was born to be a captain.
:DoxySA: …you mean in a metaphoric sense and not that you’re a vatborn, right?
:ZentoSA: I’m not from a vat Doxy, no… but my mother is a space pilot, so I’ve grown up hearing the stories of the far reaches of the galaxy.
:DoxySA: Really?
:ZentoSA: And… it was the first true night I experienced that I can remember, when all three sun set at once and the sky became aglow with the faint lights of distant worlds… as I looked upon the sea of stars above me… I knew it was my destiny to sail between them. I wasn’t more than 7 years old then, yet here we are.
:DoxySA: Huh… that’s kind of cute…
>Hold on. Are you... jealous? Regina isn't looking for anything serious, and...
:DoxySA: …what? No? I didn’t even know about you or… wait, you’ve been with Regina? Never mind, what I mean was that you don’t need to be in Captain mode all the damn time, sir. Just go out and have some fun socializing, dammit! It doesn’t have to be about increasing the crew morale or picking their brains for information!
:ZentoSA: Ah… yes… I apologize, Doxy, you’re right.
>I admit I have been fond of our "night briefings". We can keep having them regardless if they end up "productive", and forgo oversight of the "project I assigned" to Regina. But in regards to our current and future alien friends, understand I'm not able to spend every night in my quarters.
:DoxySA: While I wouldn’t mind spending more quality time with you, sir, I’m not going to be in my quarters most of the nights either. Though honestly, after today I rather just have a really good night of sleep… and something tells me I won’t have that if I go to your quarters, sir.
:ZentoSA: Probably not, no.
>You might want to have some discussions with Regina too.
…maybe you should ask her if she wants to snuggle a bit tonight… hmm…

>Dr. Vex does have a nice ring to it. Just hope he becomes the ethical kind of doctor or scientist.
:DoxySA: The Vats wouldn’t give him either the mental deficiencies or the childhood required go off the rails immediately… so as long as we keep him on the straight and narrow it wouldn’t be a problem.
>How's Doxy holding up?
:DoxySA: Huh? Why do you ask?
:ZentoSA: Well… seeing what you and Shara went through today…
:DoxySA: Oh, no, we’re fine, really. I’m just super tired, but otherwise I’m fine… though I should find something egg shaped to sleep on…
>Its crazy how many generations you can get with vats right? Like on a ship you can even see the great grandchildren of your crew mingling.
:DoxySA: There’s a reason why it’s only used in emergencies like this, you know. It quickly goes out of control and… well, it gets hard figuring out who’s related to who after a while…
:ZentoSA: …we really need to get some new blood on the ship, don’t we.
:DoxySA: Definitely, sir.
>Insist on the egg. If it's a baby monster egg scavenged from the scuttled remains of the pirates, fine. But you need to know.

You gaze downwards towards her, watching unflinchingly as she start to squirm from the attention.
:DoxySA: I’m t-telling the truth, boss. There are only two eggs the Vats right now!
One of your eyebrows raises a bit and she starts fidgeting even more.
:DoxySA: … … …alright, alright, fine! I admit it, we… um… we needed to do some quick tests before using it on the eggs and… um… you were the only one whose blood was in the system at the time?
:ZentoSA: …you’re cloning me?
:DoxySA: We started the cloning process, sir. I was going to cancel it but… I forgot? It’s… um… still not going to be a person for a few more days so you can always just cancel it yourself?
:ZentoSA: Doxy, please, if you ever feel the urge to clone someone in the future, ask for their permission first.
:DoxySA: …s-sorry, sir…
:ZentoSA: …and I’ll take some time later to consider what I will do with that clone of mine.

>I am actually curious why Eki wanted a drink that would be more suited for scraping stains off of metal then drinking. Maybe we might need some stronger mugs in the future.
:DoxySA: Um… because it’s something she can drink, probably?
:ZentoSA: …I’m not surprised that anyone calling themselves pirates would drink the strongest stuff around.
:DoxySA: I’ll see if I can figure out what they usually use for mugs, sir.
>I guess since Ikekeki helped save Regina, that helped them form a bond of friendship.

:ZentoSA: Still… I wish to know.
:SharaSA: Titles are fucking cool, sister.
:TizliSA: Fine fine… yeah, I’m a trade princess… which just means I’m related to the Trade Queen of our Trade Clan. I’m 143rd in line, by the way.
:ZentoSA: So we only need to take care of 143 people to make you queen, huh?
:SharaSA: Shara…
:TizliSA: That’s not how it works, sister. You only go down the line if it’s an emergency, and only until the next Queen or King can be elected. Of course, they usually chose someone in the family to take their place… and even if they don’t, the one chosen usually gets adopted into the family first… you know, to keep the Clan in the family, so to speak.
:ZentoSA: …so you’re some kind of elective monarchy?
:TizliSA: What? No, that’s just the Clan. We’re a democracy… but you’ll need to go to our home world and nearby systems to really experience that. Out here, the Clan generally make most of the decisions… though they still follow the Prime Magistrates’ laws, of course.
:ZentoSA: Interesting…
>I'm sure tizili has some questions for the captain seeing what she heard in the hanger.

:SharaSA: …am I missing something here?
:TizliSA: HAHA! No, it’s nothing! Forget about it… hah… um…
:ZentoSA: Well, if you’re ever curious, you can always ask me, Tizli.

>That goes triple for Shara, as in she'll need three more eggs to personally man her own Sakkilian Cruiser.
Hmm… having her family pilot her ship? That’s an interesting thought… still, would be a tragedy if they were shot down… you really need some new blood, so that morale won’t go through the floor if someone passes away…
>Actually, this may be too soon for Shara. She just laid her egg. It's not like women get stronger and taller as they lay more eggs, do they?
Sadly, they do not get stronger from making eggs, no. And you’re sure she won’t be in the mood right now… of course, you’re not in the mood yourself. You already made one child today and that’s enough, really… you’re a Captain, not some kind of egg making machine after all.
>If Zell isn't up to the task, remind her that you're decent "competition" yourself and you don't mind "losing" ;)
:SharaSA: …did you just tell me to ignore rank and make you my boytoy, Captain?
:TizliSA: Huh? Did I miss something?
:ZentoSA: All I said is to feel free to ask me anytime you feel like it, Shara.
:SharaSA: Pff, asking is weaklings. A proper woman takes what they want… um… if I have consent for it, of course.
:TizliSA: Err… wait… are you talking about what I think you’re talking about?
:SharaSA: Because then I might just drag you back to my den and use you until I’m satisfied whenever I feel like it. I mean, not today, because I’m tired as fuck, but maybe tomorrow?

:ZellSA: Kind of ‘ard to catch a game of Scrumball when we’re the in the wrong galaxy lass. Though we really need some new entertainment around ‘ere… watching holo-disks in the crew quarters common room is getting a bit stale, yah ‘ear?
:TozlanSA: This place is way better than being stuck in one of our scumsuckingly small defender class ships. Barely enough room to even enjoy the brine without trampling over someone else’s tail. You don’t know how good you got it, friend.

Yeah, we even sleep in sand beds.
But maybe we can do something about that in the future. Maybe make like a mud ground or something. With a bit of water and a bit of earth, or sand. I'm sure we can find something for all of us to enjoy.

>Zento clone
We should mix someone else’s DNA in there, so that it’s not an exact clone of the Captain. It’d be confusing to have 2 people looking exactly alike on board.

And if for some reason the clone decided to take over, all he’d have to do is switch clothes with the real Zento. I’m not saying that it will happen, but there’s a possibility that it could happen, so it’s best we do something to prevent it from happening.

Then again, we could just change the clone’s gender to female. Then she wouldn’t be able to switch places with Zento, since everyone already knows the real Zento is a male.
