    Kirk
    Kirk seems suprised for a moment, before a mask of acceptance slips over his face. "Yes, I've read Picards reports. And Janeways. And Siskos. You really do get around, Q. Though, considering what Picard and Janeway said about your flamboyance, I was at least expecting a more imaginative uniform. Though please, spare me the bed clothes." Kirk is grinning at this point. God-like beings harrassed him rather frequnetly, and he found them best dealt with by being unimpressed. Add in that Q rarely hurt crew members, and Kirk felt this could go well.

    "Hey wait, I need your help. Aphelion track its movements we need local help to get out of here." "Affirmative." Ratchet tears off into the jungle after the fleeing lifeform.

    John Carter

    John Carter smiled, his expression gentle and bemused. He had the patriarchal look of a friendly grandfather regarding an endearingly foolish young grandson. It was a look that his nephew Eddie back on Earth was quite familiar with, for 'Uncle Jack' had always been a perennial favourite amongst all the young members of the Carter family, and their relatives the Burroughs as well. Some might have considered John Carter's expression to be patronizing, but this was offset by the gentleness of his smile and the warmth in his grey eyes

    "Paul Atreides, there are some things you must know of Barsoom before you can be shown it's marvels," he said, and without further preamble, he bent over, and then sprang up and jumped seventy feet up into the air. He then came back down, and alighted in front of Paul, bending at the knees as he struck ground.

    "You are from Earth, no? Or an Earth-like world at least. Of course you are, you are human afterall. Paul, the gravity and air density of Barsoom is lesser than that of Earth. You may find that you need to relearn some motor skills if you are to travel on Barsoom" John said with a grin and a laugh.

    Despite his levity, however, his mind was troubled. Did the boy really say he could see the future? He had seen and heard many unusual and wondrous things on Barsoom, but never of a seer who was anything more than a fraud using unusually strong psychic powers to manipulate the masses. Even so, how had Paul known his name from the start. John threw up his mental barriers, even as he laughed.

    'He says he is a seer' he reached out to Tars Tarkas wordlessly, without a single outward thing to show that he was communicating with the towering Green Man, still sitting on his thoat with spear in hand.

    'Do you think we can trust him' the cautious Thark replied.

    'He is only a child Tars, but there is something odd about him, to be sure'

    'If I recall, there was plenty odd about you when you arrived amongst our people as well' At this, John had to restrain the urge to chuckle at the old memories.

    'Heh, fair enough. Keep an eye on him though, a hand near your pistol. Something strange is afoot here'

    Shevek frowns as the situation is explained

    "I am willing to go. I cannot speak for the other members of the delegation. What say you all?"

    To himself, he thinks.

    This is an opportunity to learn about the Federation outside of sanitized reading files. And I can transmit anything important back home via Ansible. And...maybe I can find allies out there among the stars...just in case.

    Paul
    He listened patiently to the mans explanation, then in answer leaps up into the air and executes a perfect tripple flip, enough to shame any acrobat as he contorts his muscles smoothly and easily, then lands perfectly on the balls of his feet and bounces upright. He smiles boyishly as he lands, but the smile fades after a moment, the exhuberence of using his body swallowe by his thoughtful nature.

    He could thank the training he’d been going through his entire life in order to mould him into a worthy successor of the Ateredis name for his agility. For the last six months, since being accepted by the Bene Gesseriet, he had been training for life on Pandora, where the gravity and pressure were less then what he was used to, and while it was nothing like it was here and had given him a stable groundwork. Not that he intended to tell John Carter that, it was better to keep the man guessing at his capabilities regardless whether he trusted him or not.

    He was troubled. He was good at reading people, though there was nothing supernatural about it, but John Carter confounded his attempts to get a bearing on. He knew the man was important, that he would learn from him and that he would be the final step in his maturity to carry him to Arrakis, but beyond that he was lost. Who was this man? Was he cruel or was he kind? He felt the former, but that was instinct and nothing more.

    It was going to be hard to get used to being human again, after so recently having stopped.

    Mal
    "Let me worry about that." He replies, straightening his coat, and moving as if to step past his pilot. Wash has a better point then he wanted to admit, but given his situation it was either take any job that came his way or starve and eat Jayne.

    Hober Mallow

    Well wasn't that just damned inconvenient. Men of principle in business. Who'd have thought it?

    Mallow has the soul of a Ferengi; while he knows very well about Seldon crisises and the manifest destiny of the Foundation, he doesn't really care about either as long as he gets paid.

    Time to pull a gambit. And if it didn't work, he'd try again the next time the board of CHOAM changed. The potential profit of getting on Earth was astronomical, but Mallow still made quite a profit every year normally.

    "Look. I spend my life in space for my five-and-dime gadgets and my beer-and-pretzel kickback from the Foundation. There's fat fellows back there," his thumb jerked over his shoulder and back, "that sit home and collect my year's income every minute – out of skimmings from me and more like me; they're the one's who worry about politics and votes and policy. I'm a Master Trader; I worry about cold hard cash. As long as I get paid at the end of it, I really don't care who does what and where."

    He takes out a cigar, lights it by simply roasting the other end like a heathen, sticks it in his mouth.

    "That's all there is to it, really. I don't give a rat's ass about the Federation, end of story. I'm just in it for the credits and latinum."

    There was a slight possibility that they'd buy his speech and let him on board. Very slight.

    More likely, they'd be disgusted and leave, but some poor schmuck of them whose margins aren't quite up to his usual spec will want to talk about possibly converting his plants for greater efficiency, along with a nice chunk of money for his silence. And a foot in the door was all he really needed.

    Jean-Luc Picard

    He works on a few reports in his ready room before he contacts Data.

    "Commander Data; you have the bridge. I'll be in Holodeck Three if I am needed."

    A good captain knows his limits, and not to overstress himself if he does not have to. There would be little enough time for him to relax over the next few days; a few hours as Dixon Hill would do him good.

    Preem Palver

    "Please. Enter."

    His belongings are sparse; a framed picture of his "wife," a half-empty pack of cigarettes (he doesn't smoke but it's a useful fiction), one or two hardcopy books (a compilation of Abrahamic mythology, and The Once and Future King). Since his room is small, and is little more than a bed and enough space for two people to sit on the floor, there isn't really any need for more.

    For this conversation, at least, he's dropped his lower-class accent.

    Kirk
    He laughs, his entire body shaking as he does, and slaps his knee. "You are much more fun then the others. I should have visited you far earlier.” He says, then suddenly stops and faces you. “But it’s worth the wait. Lets talk about whether your species continues to survive." Q says, reclining as though sitting back on a chair, though he was apparently floating on absolutely nothing. "War is nature's way. Survival of the fittest, and all that. The human race must either continue to evolve, or it will die. And now, we’re back to the glory days of the eugenics wars. I mean Big Brother watching you all, humans stepping off assembly lines and into a Soma filled haze, and all the rest. If you care about anything The Federation has built, well you’d better do a damn good job, because if you lose this fight, you won’t have a thing left to fight for.”

    Jean-Luc Picard
    You vanish into the adventures in San Francisco, California, 1941, where you make your way through mysteries and through the stories of your childhood hero, and almost make yourself forget the burdens of the present.

    Shevek
    You finally settle on five people abnd board up. You suddenly feel adventurous, you'll be heading to the cradle of humanity in nine days, moving far faster then light, and in a spaceship so advanced you can scarecly credit it. It almost makes you forget your suspicions that you're being misled, or at least that they know a lot more then they are telling you about this 'crisis'.

    Doggie
    Now that they will be remaining on board for a little over a week, you and Worf have been instructed to show the delegation around while Commander Data escorts you and answers their questions. He is currently cheerfully informing them about the three laws that govern his behavior and all his actions are based around. It's kind of confronting, the way he suggests it's the mechanical equivilent of a soul.

    Ratchett and Clank
    At last you find your way to the processing plant. Civilization. At last.

    Hober Mallow
    Mustapha Mond steps forward. He's the perfect counterpart to his grim fellow, in that he's cheerful, middle-aged, and gives the image of being perpetually apologetic. Just the same, he’s not the pushover he appears.
    “No need to be confrontational. While we may have different motives, we all want the same thing.” He holds up his soft hands. “Your proposition is certainly… brave, for want of a better word, and it’s still being considered. Naturally enough, your position as an independent businessmen of some stature has no small weight on our consideration.”
    He sips the drink he's been holding, makes a face then puts it down. "If you could ease a few of our concerns, I can see no issues whatsoever."

    Legato was growing... temperamental. It was rare for him to display true bouts of anger. Annoyance, disdain, disgust, disappointment, and a dozen other 'dis-'s, yes. But almost never anger. Still anyone of those 'dis-'s could lead to a small city dying where they stood. Legato signaled for his ship. He would make a stealth run through the lower atmosphere to the base where Gene was hiding. But Legato Bluesummers stayed certain of one fact. Gene Hunt was going to die painfully, and slowly.

    Legato
    It's difficult to make your move. The occupying family has brought an army, and unlike most of the houses armies, these ones have the look of hard, seasoned professionals, highly trained and resilient. They were dressed in uniform, light personnel armor fitted with shields and helmets, and tellingly they were armed with grav-blades and Lancer Assault Rifles, effectively ensuring they were prepared for anything.
    Your target is somewhere within, but you haven't got the resources or the inclination to take on an entire occupying force head on.

    Outlaw Starr
    Leto Atreides was tall and well built, with a neatly trimmed beard, the blue eyes that spoke of spice addiction and with the lean, flat build of a man half his age. Of course, that was impossible to tell, given that he probably took the Melange to extend his life.
    You were taken up to him and had spoken for a few moments, then before you knew it you were offered an obscene amount of money to track down his son, who, apparently after going mad, took a spacecraft and flew it to the outer rim and out beyond into the furthest reaches of space.
    It's extremely dangerous. But you don't have a choice. You're desperate. You'll take any job you can get, and you're extremely lucky to have something like this fall into your lap. And the gratitude of a man like him could be extremely valuable.

    Cruger doesn't mention the fact that all non-combative robots use the same basic systems of three laws. It's his higher level functioning and ability to augment his other non-three law systems that makes him more than a standard protocol droid.

    Instead he focuses his attention on the delegates seeing who among them if any might cause trouble for him later on.

    Ratchet and Clank

    Ratchet cheers as he runs towards the plant. "At last, civilization at last. You see Clank I knew that we would find something. " "Perhaps Ratchet, but we still do not know if the local residents are hostile or not." Ratchet runs into the factory as excitement in each step at getting off this planet. "Geez, you worry to much Clank. I mean besides, that guy lead us here right?"

    Shevek

    Shevek takes some notes on the impulse drive system of the shuttle on their way up. The arid planet of Annarres obviously couldn't build ships quite like the ones of the federation...but these ships were extravagant: something smaller, simpler, and engineered for lightness like the early space capsules and spaceplanes could possibly...

    "Do you know what our Warp Drive route will be?" He asks one of the ensigns.

    "That would be your problem." He vanishes in a flash of light, and reappears behind you, placing his hands on your shoulders. "If I helped you too much, well then all I would be left with would be a resigned conclusion. Where's the fun in that?"

    Shevek
    "The co-ordinates are here." He says, illustrating a screen. "Right now, our navigator is in a trance. As the way is determined, he'll provide instructions." He indicates a tank, where a tall and spindly figure is immersed in highly-concentrated amounts of orange gas. You get a fleeting glimpse of extremely large eyes which lack the iris, and ill-defined facial features, and then it resumes being a silhouette amongst it.
    "Simply punching in co-ordinates doesn't work, given that the entire cosmos is constantly moving. And steering manually is impossible, given we're moving past the speed of light."

    Doggie
    Data was just being friendly. They've probably never encountered an artificial inteligence before. You examine the delegation, and the only one who seems in any way less then receptive is a young woman, who's glowering and wrining her hands. It's clear she's not comfortable here and doesn't trust any of you.
    Apparently, she's what passes for a law officer on this world, although how they reconcile that with anarchism is beyond you.

    Junior
    Your in orbit around the planet now, silent and undetected, monitoring. The city is in turmoil, in what seems to be a revolution. Eisenhorn hasn't stirred, his occasional tapping the floor with his cane the only sign he's alive. However, what ever stirred them up appears to have left. It's really your call whether you continue monitoring from space or intervene, as Eisenhorn certainly isn't taking charge anymore.

    He continually taps his fingers on his captains seat as the infromation gathering continues and Jr. finally yawns before speaking. "Man we've been here for hours gathering info. I'm going down girls I gotta do something." Shelley then speaks up as she says, "Please wait just a little longer Little Master. We still do not have information on why this revolution happened and what the sides want." Mary then says, "That's right, I mean I know that Captain Kirk is like your role model and all but that doesn't mean you should just go off half-c*cked and not knowin' the situation." Jr. sighs as he sits back down as he says, "Sure thing, Spock and McCoy but it better take less than an hour or I'm taking what I can get and goin' down there." They girls nod as the look continue observing the conflict and trying to find the information for the cause of the revolution and what the sides are.

    "Which is where precognition comes in." Shevek notes. "It took temporal physics a century or to to catch up with the demonstrated effect of melange."

    Then he catches a gander at Data.

    "Shevek!" He says by way of introduction. "There are a few sentient mechanicals on Annares, but they're very crude and blocky in body form: regardless, it's a pleasure to meet you."

    Legato
    ((... 'Don't have the inclination or resources'? Do you know who I am? ))

    Legato's corpse yellow eyes take in the facility. The dead stare traces over walls, tanks, weapons, and men. Garbage. Every last bit of it. Just trash. Every blood vessel, every gear, every wire, just so much **** piling up in the universe. It needed to be disposed of. Put to better use. Cleared away for a more glorious promise. But first... he had to make sure there weren't any rats waiting to bite him. Bluesummers scans the base, feeling from afar for any psychic presences of note.

    Outlaw Star
    Gene Starwind kicked back on the command bridge of the Outlaw Star. 'Bridge' might be too big a word, though. More of a cockpit for four, excluding Melphina's tank behind his seat. The red rocket shot to the depths of space. Bounties weren't unheard of, and the crew had faced worse. Hell, just him and Jim had done stupider and riskier jobs than this. But there was still something creeping at the back of his neck...

    "Something wrong, Gene?" Jim asked. The pint-sized prodigy startled the bounty hunter, making him jump, "Ah! Crap, don't scare me like that!"

    "Sorry. Don't get your panties in a wad..."


    "Hey, don't get smart with me. I'm just a little on edge, that's all."


    "Thinkin' about the pay?" Gene's doubts melted away at the word 'pay'. Money. Cash. Credits. Woo-longs. Currency. The most beautiful selection of words in the galactic language. Working for a noble; they'd hit the big time.

    "Gene? Gene!" Jim Hawking snapped his employer out of the haze. The bounty hunter snapped back to attention, "Huh, uh? Oh, sorry. I lost track there for a minute."

    "Yeah, well try to stay more focused. We're keeping a pretty steady pace here, but we could probably get there in a couple of hours if we warp."


    "Nah, let the others rest. Melfina's cooking, and heads roll when Aisha doesn't get her third lunch. And Suzuka's..."


    "'Off being Suzuka', as you put it Mr. Starwind." Gilliam, the ship's AI finished. Gene smiled, "Finally catching on. I guess you probably know what our resident assassin does for fun, don't you Gil?"

    "I do, but I'm not telling. She cuts metal very cleanly, you know."
    One final snort, and Gene leaned back in his chair, watching the stars drift outside. "Steady as she goes, Mr. Hawking. Nobles are nobles, and a count's son will leave a trail a mile wide."

    ((Oh, that's right. I'm bringing text-y back.))

    River Tam
    River steps in to the room, cautiously, like a wild animal inspecting a new corner of a familiar place. Her mind is a multicolored, abstract swirl, and as she stepes over to you she gently lifts her hands, and places them on your face, feeling your jaw, cheeks and forehead with no care at all how strange and uncomfortable this is for you. She even pinches you a few times. Painfully.

    She’s reluctant to trust you, since the only other person like her she’s met made her the way she is now, but since she can’t see any intent in you to harm her, in her primitive way of reading impressions, she’s come at her brothers advice on the hope that you can help her.

    Stepping back and out of your personal space, she sits on the bed and looks at you.

    The signals from the ship the Bebop Crew is on finally reach you. It's a message from Faye Valetine.

    "Gene, I'm sorry for drugging you before but you have to hear me out. The terrorist we picked up, his men think you're the one who brought him in. They're coming for now."

    Doggie

    "Shevak, would you care to join the rest of your delegation as I show them around the ship?" Doggie asks the anarchist as they come across each other in the halls.

    "What's the general route you'll take?" Shevek asks. He doesn't quite pick up on the tone of command. Or he picked up on it, but decided to pretend he didn't.

    "Perhaps a hint then? An idea of what we're getting into?" He needed something to work with; while Kirk, like any Starfleet officer worth his salt, enjoyed exploring and discovering all the universe had to offer, he'd rather not run into something with no idea of what it was, when there was a good chance it was hostile.

    Doggie

    "The plan is very louse, it would be much better if you'd accompany us." Doggie says, in truth under normal circumstances he would be all too happy to allow Shevak to go his own way but with the possibility of him coming across Q he can't take the risk.

    "Part of the mission we are on right now includes the potential risk of hostile attacks. I have been assigned to protect the delegates and would appreciate it if you do not make that any harder for me than it has to be."

    "Attacks from what?" Shevek asks. "You been acting like a propertarian with the information you've given us so far."

    He's been following you all the while. You suppose that stringing him along with questions will do the job.

    "The directives of the mission were very vague. All I can tell you is we are heading for the planet Mars, in the Sol system. The bridge is our next stop, I'm sure the Captain could better tell you the details of the mission." Doggie continues.

    "Excellent!" Shevek leans forward as they stride through the hallways.

    He pauses.

    "What do you personally think the mission entails?"

    Riker

    The two reach the bridge, but the Captain isn't there.

    "That's classified information, Shevak."

    Will nods at his two fellow Starfleet officers, nods to the Annarian. Belatedly, he realizes what his tone reveals.

    "It's for your own safety."

    Preem Palver

    Preem's mind is perfectly ordered. A room filled from floor to ceiling with mathematical equations the likes of which River has never seen. Occasionally, she might recognize a function or two, but even then, they bear as much resemblance to what she knows as basic addition does to vector calculus. And while River is quite the savant, the formulas shown are simply too unfamiliar to discern.

    The science of psycho-history, after all, was unknown to all save the Second Foundation, after all.

    She gets an impression of the man as well. Stern. Devoted. Not kind in the conventional sense, but like a surgeon who cuts into people to make them better. The ends justified the means, after all. But the equations whisper of a better tomorrow, if not personally or in specifics, then in time and across all people's everywhere. A tapestry made of men. A history of things yet to come.

    Preem looks into River as well. His mental powers take time for him to open and utilize, like a blindfolded man needing to blink in the sunlight after taking it off. He brushes against her mind, softly and with great care; it would be rude to enter her mind fully after all. A moment passes.

    Preem recoils physically, the shock causing him to flinch and grasp his head.

    "What," he rasps. "What did they do to you, girl?"

    Shevek narrows his eyes for a moment.

    "What gives you the right to decide that?" He asks.

    Bridge

    Bridge gets up from the seat he was borrowing from Troi and takes steps forward between Riker and Shevak.

    "This is just a misunderstanding. You both need to calm down and take a step back from the situation." He says as pointing threateningly at both parties.

    "Riker is on edge because he knows next to nothing about what this mission is really supposed to be almost as little as you do, Shevak. So he's being unduly confrontational right now and you should not be taking it personally. He outright verbally assaulted myself and Kat earlier today." The young Counsellor continues directing his attention to Shevak.

    He then turns back around to Riker. "Now, think about this Commander. Shevak is a man of some note among a community of anarchist. Expecting him to fully master living under a military chain of command in a matter of hours is just insane and you know it. Particularly when it seems to him like that chain of command is withholding important information his life and those of his fellow delegates may depend on."

    "Do not make me book private sessions for both of you..." He issues the last part as a direct threat to the both of you. How that would be a threat is better left to imagination.

    Shevek

    Shevek is privately gratified by Bridge's honest manor, and Riker's (and Doggie's) choices of words make more sense.

    "Ah. I suppose Riker's choices of words make sense in light of the grossly inefficient system of military ranks."

    He steps up to Riker.

    "I don't intend to apologize for what I've said. But I don't want bad blood between us. Shall we start over in a more open light?"
