Ref. says: The following public service announcements are heard over the ship's com Ladies and Gentlemen, I hope that you enjoying your flight. Our estimated breakout time has been revised to 6 days 20 hours. We will keep you updated, as the computer calculates further viables.

"Would the Chief Engineer kindly report to the Captain's readyroom, as soon as possible. Thank you."

A passenger who was passing by stateroom 808 in the First Class section happened to notice strange multicoloured light flashing and crackling
like a persistant electrical discharge from under the door. She reported the phenomena to the Steward on Deck, who reassured her that the crew will investigate.

Thumbs up

After exchanging pleasant greetings with Baron Jame and Dorotea, Baron W. asks if they would like to join him in some form of card game entertainment?

"My skills are slight and I find myself often loosing but, I just love to play. I mean, I can't loose every game can I? And it does help greatly in passing the time."

Dorotea says, "I'll gladly play, though I'm not much of a gambler either." When they sit down to play, she asks, "What brings you aboard the ship?"

"Ah, well, actually my wife, the Lady Elaine wanted to visit Far Point. She heard there is a wonderful retreat and spa there she simply had to visit. I heard there was a Pod Race track and an up and comming pilot. I thought I could win some wagers by betting on him. What game would you like to play?"

Soft, hissing laughter follows.

"My clan makes small electronics, computers. I go to make trade with Zhodani. A great honor to be sent on such a fine ship."
"Pleased to meetcha'. I'm Matt Jeffers, no clan, unless you want to call my tech college a clan. They had a scholarship open to travel abroad on the Pride of Naasirka, I was the only one who applied for it and now I'm here seeing what there is to see." He took a gulp of his drink.

"I guess that makes me a bit like you, at least from what I've read. We're both out here being new-seekers", he finished with a rueful smile.

"A spa? I'll have to talk the guys into trying it - I don't plan on going myself. The third member of my party may be interested in that pod racing track - though I'm sure you should tell him. He won't be along until supper, though."

Dorotea looks up at Jame. "You don't mind watching a game of poorly-played Tonk, now do you?"

"Not at all, not at all."

"I too have pleasure in meeting you, Matt Jeffers. May I return your courtesy by purchasing you another beverage?"

Usssep cocks his head again, listening to the announcement over the PA: "I have little knowledge of ship operations. Is a summons for the chief engineer a normal thing at this time? Perhaps we should question a steward ..."

----------------------------------------------------------

"That announcement doesn't sound right. Usually maintenance is done on the maneuver drive while in jump, overseen by the Chief Engineer. At least that's what my instructors tell me," pausing for a moment.

"Yes, lets ask a steward and see what they say."

Ref says: The steward seems a little uneasy and after a long pause says:
"It's nothing to be alarmed with. Just routine maintenance. The Captain is concerned that the Jump Engines are only operating at 97.8% efficiency. And now if I can offer you free holofilm passes, tonight's feature will be a new release direct from the Baronski films on Upper Taragon."

The PA announcement calls out again for the Chief Engineer to report to the Captain's Ready Room.

In the meantime, a clearly drunken courtesan bumps into the group. "Some party, on the First Class Observation Deck, eh? Wild times like that haven't been seen since old Rome itself." Soon after bumping into a few walls a few marines in full battle dress escort the courtesan back to the elevators.

The door chime of the Captain's ready room pongs melodiously, naturally that is working fine notes the Chief Petty Engineer. The door opens and Jeffery walks in sparing a quick glance at the room, with the eye of an engineer rather than a decorator, and is not as impressed as the decor intends...

Standing respectfully easy in a clear voice Jeff speaks "CPO Sawter reporting sir, the Master Chief sends her regrets, she is sitting on a situation in main engineering at the moment. I have the details here." He hands over a data-pad and continues, "We should have crew comms patched up shortly so you won't have to use runners and the public address for much longer, sir." With that Jeff waits for the Captain to read the report and give his orders.
