Stepping up to the barkeep AI. "I'll have a large Anthalass tea please". The shipboard specs did have a few more details specs than the advertising literature. Interesting that they didn't show the meson gun in the advert details.
At least the designers were smart enough to put entrances to a few escape shuttles in the lounge area.

It is interesting to see the reactions of the different passengers to the strange happenings on the ship.

He turns to survey the lounge: "Perhaps there are others who also seek answers ..."
"That sounds like a good idea. A really good idea, Usssep." Matt gets up and follows his droyne compadre to the lift.

Ref. says: The grav lift promptly stops at the 119th floor - the observation lounge. At either exit are two Imperial Marines apparently transfixed by the sky. There is an enormous panoramic star-field approximately at 45 degrees inclination there appears to be a whirlpool vortex sucking in all light and matter from the surrounding area. The ship seems to be approaching the vortex.

In the lounge itself are at least 100 individuals wearing saffron & yellow robes chanting:
"Ohm, Ohm, Ohm, Diddy-Ohm, Ohm, Ohm, Ohm, Diddy-Ohm, Ohm..." each seem to be connected to a large machine in the centre via a fiber optic cable attached at the base of their skull. The machine is making odd sort of static sound. In the centre is a hoop which seems to be covered in an elastic texture of a soap bubble.

The Marines snap to attention and demand to see their security pass.

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

Meanwhile, back in the lounge. A tall leggy beautiful brunette in a tight black cocktail dress (think: Angelina Jolie & Vanessa Williams combination in a "Mrs. Smith" dress)sits beside Vegascat and asks:
"Is this your first time into the black? Well, don't just gawk, are you going to buy a girl a drink?"

Dorotea, joined by now by Jame and possibly the Baron, shows the Marines the security pass. They immediately notice Dr. Howard Calis lying in a chair - face down...

Ref says: "I am sorry Sir, this area is restricted to Gold level and above. I will have ask you to leave." to reinforce the point the Marines cock their Gauss rifles.

Usssep addresses the guard: "Apologies are offered. Steward gave ticket to show. This show not one have ticket for."

Reaching forward, he taps the lift control: "Apologies all around for abrupt action. A lift tube is not proper venue to dispute Gauss rifle."

Back in the lounge he steps to one side and touches a pad on his porta-comp. The control interface springs into being around him. Deft fingers stroke and prod the holographic images. The effect is not unlike watching a skilled harpist.

"This new-thing in observation lounge seems bad; very bad. Need data."

He accesses the passenger datanet. Gently, carefully, he begins probing, seeking an opening in the firewall. After several minutes, he finds one. The room service ordering program is linked through the purser's system back to the shipside datanet.

"I am trying to access security sensor network. It is wrong to do this, but the wrong on observation deck is much greater."

"Machines should serve sophont beings, not other way around. Linking mind/machine very wrong. Droyne do this long ago. Very bad."

A deft flick of a delicate, scaled hand dispatches a seeker program into the ship network.

"Now we see."

Ref. says: At that moment the entire telemetry of the ship pops up in a three dimensional representation. Power is currently being diverted from tertiary systems into the Upper Observational Deck by a rather sophisticated computer program. Further inquiry into the source indicates it seems to be using the Lanthanum jump grid to bypass detection by the ship's other systems.

The computer promptly notes that the current vector and velocity are standard for a jump of the magnitude expected for a jump to Far Point.

Attempts to activate cameras on the observation deck meet with failure either because they are switched off or there is a higher level of security that your portacomputer cannot crack.

At this point, your portacomputer alerts to the fact the security protocols have been activated. Almost instantly Naasirka emerge from the grav lifts and begin rifling through the crowd.

The ship's lights dim for a moment allowing the security detail to see perfectly were the source of the break in is occurring.

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

Meanwhile, elsewhere, you overhear an Aslan male shout out:
"Firukhte!
What do you think you are doing with my companion, fiyfiyalrya'uist? This calls for aisaiaokheh now!"
"Firuah, firuah" he chants in a deep growl

"Guard, my companion is lying in that chair right there. If I could have him back, I would leave with alacrity."

"Indeed" adds Baron W. "We could each take an arm and leave with all haste in the direction from which we came"

Baron W makes a move to put actions to words.
