"My...planet? Um..." Hawk sighed and scratched his neck a bit, "I gotta be honest with you: I don't remember what planet I come from. My memory has been a bit of a mess ever since I woke up on Nebula Prime, so I figured I also was born there, but I don't really know. I been to Earth and it is a nice planet, but my home planet is a mystery, even to us. Truth be told, I don't really remember much of anything from the past. Sure, I've intentionally forgotten some things as I prefer to let the past die out and not affect my tomorrow, but the stuff I want to remember? I just can't. Only thing I can remember from then is arriving on the NSC Nostradamus and that's it."

"Oh, well… that must be rather unfortunate. I don't know what that's like, not knowing wherye you came from. Let's try to lighten the mood." Brad says, then, he raises his voice and calls to Ken "Ken, wanna come over here and show Hawk some cool tricks you can do?" Ken walks up to them and transforms into a microwave. "Come on, you couldn't think of something a but more technologically advanced than that? You could've turned into a pocket computer or a cellular device, but you chose a microwave, not to mention that it is a bit small." Brad remarks at microwave Ken.

Hawk chuckles a bit at Ken's antics, "That's actually pretty cool! All we can do is regenerate our body, though it comes at the cost of triple the pain, meaning a knife wound will feel like I got shot with a .50cal rifle and so on," he then takes a seat, "So, changing topics, what did you do before you joined the Champions?"

Quint went silent for a moment, before speaking up again in a much softer tone. Yeah. It really is. He said, seeming a lot less jovial than he was before.
Kolt meanwhile, was giving Jenny a big ole smile, before realizing something. “Shoot, I need to go find my watch. Ko Sah threw it off after he took control. Give me a minute.” He said, before heading off towards his room.

“So we just need to talk for a few moments while you collect the data? Sounds simple enough.” Alpina said calmly. There was a pause for a moment, as someone else could be faintly heard talking on the other end before the Admiral spoke again. ”Actually Captain Walker, there is something I’d like to ask about your, ah, previous relationship, if you don’t mind talking about it in front of the others.”
It took Liz a split second to realize what Tsukuyomi was talking about, letting out a resigned sigh as she did. “Go ahead.” She replied, trying to not clench her teeth as she spoke.
“Excellent. Now, our records say that Fortis grew up on Kaon colony 7. Did he ever mention anything about that while you were together?” Alpina asked, immediately dropping any pretenses about who she was talking about.
Liz thought for a moment, trying to remember something she hadn’t thought about in years. “Kaon was always a bit of a sore spot for him. He said the Republic all but officially abandoned it after black ice took out the communication satellites, leaving it’s citizens to fend for themselves. He said it was proof that the Republic would only take care of its people as long as it was convenient to do so. That was one of the only fights we had while we were.... together.”
Now it was the Admiral’s turn to sigh. “That certainly fits with our hypothesis.” She said, very pointedly not explaining what she was talking about, nor why she asked about Fortis in the first place.

"I get that," Messalca remarked, "but they shouldn't face the day alone. And, if they cause all that, where better than here, where we don't have too many things dependant on electronics? Block outages here and they fall back on old methods and pre-computer practices. Do that in a city these days?" She grimaced.


"You have a good point," Hivemind said. "I just wanted to be sure you were aware of what might happen."

"It's not exactly taught at junior schools," Hannabelle confirmed as Corvis agreed to try the drink. "Just Celican and standard. Do I wanna know..?"


Gear looked over at the menu, thinking about how Corvis might be able to read it despite not knowing the language. He decided to do a little experiment. Under the table, he started fiddling with his wrist computer. He tapped into the restaurant's local network and managed to hack into the electronic menu the Celican child was holding. The menu flickered for a split second, then refreshed with Varanian Glyphs instead of English. It was the first language Gear thought of that he absolutely KNEW Corvis wouldn't naturally know. "Hey, Corvis? I gave my menu up already. Could ya remind me what the Number 1 was?" he asked, glancing sideways at Hannabelle.

"Thank you for your assistance, Keeva." The predator said. "Would you like to get something for yourself?" he asked. "I'll buy. I got quite a lot of payment from yesterday's work."

"From our last call, it sounded like this Fortis managed to recruit powerful people from our own universe." Hivemind said. "It would be best if he did not know the Steelhaven survived the warp collapse. If he knew, he might launch an attack to get Captain Liz back. I'm confident in the Beacon's ability to resist such an attack, however our communication should be considered confidential for the time being."

Hivemind checked some of the Steelhaven's equipment, talking with the ship's computer. "I'm still gathering data." He said to the others. He spoke back into the comm system. "Admiral, I suggest extreme caution when dealing with any new species Fortis may have recruited. Some of them have species-wide superpowers. They don't have to adhere to ordinary laws of physics."

We can only hope." Brad said, trying to convey meaning at the latter part, and then paused before continuing, "Ah, no, that sounds way too philosophical. Let's do simpler things, what's your favorite food?"

"My story's less impressive: As far as I remember, I've been one of the galaxies deadliest bounty hunters and one of the best. We caught everything from low-life scum to intergalactic demons...but after a while, we started to rethink our position and felt we needed to do something different, hence why we came here in our ship," Hawk replied while leaning back on the chair, "As for food..truth be told, we don't ever get hungry or thirsty, so we don't really have a favorite. Our metabolism allows us to eat as much as we want without growing full or gaining weight, as it is instantly digested the second it hits our stomach. Heck, we can even drink as much alcohol as we want and we won't ever get drunk. But if we had to choose, it'd be a simple bacon butty and a cup of tea. Nothing too fancy."

Jenny started getting into her armour after Kolt nipped next door. So, what about you, Quint, she thought, anything you want to do whilst you're here, pal? I mean, whilst I can ask directly, what sort of thing do you dream of being able to do? If you want to tell.
--------------
Messalca stepped back over to the young 'Celican'. "Looks like you got some more time, Zach" she told him, "'cause you're stopping with me. Now," she added, "hugs are allowed in lieu of payment and you can get back to them, yeah?"
-------------
Jaken fell off his chair. "Really," he asked desperately, picking himself back up. "How..? What..? We're going to rescue him, right?"
-------------
Corp did his best to keep his feelings to himself about Fortis and his hands stayed behind his back. To say he had somewhat... negative emotions on the subject of that person was an understatement and he could feel those emotional blade things trying to cut into life and hoped the others weren't seeing them.
------------
Corvis stared at the menu and blinked. "Err..." he said, "this was in English a moment ago...
Jenevive frowned at her youngest. "Since when can you read English?"
"Last night," the Cub said proudly. "I read a standard/English dictionary."
"He did," Golten admitted grumpily, wondering how his brother had stolen all the attention that was supposed to be on him. "saw him reading the screens. Not a clue why. It all looked stupid to me."
" I wanted to find out about making burgers out of Kings..."
-----------
"Maybe later, Pred. So, what do you think of sentience so far?" Although she hadn't intended it, Keeva wondered if Predator would not the sort of joke there.

Chris raised his eyebrows, a little surprised that MT would invite him on something that he thought was rather personal. "I'd be honored," he says before stepping into the Ibis' cabin.
------
"Well actually they'd each get their own medical files, but this wou-" he cut himself off as soon as he realized what he was saying. His tail started wagging faster behind him when what she said actually clicked, "Sorry sorry, yeah. Yeah!" He hurriedly booted up an auxiliary computer and pressed his thumb to the reader, logging into his account. He quickly brought up Seena's medical file and forwarded it over to the station she was working at. "J-just fill in the, uh, the highlighted boxes." He sat in his chair, hands planted firmly on his knees; his excitement almost completely blocking out the interest he had in Liz's previous love life with an interplanetary bandit.
------
"Thanks?" Denver said, lifting an eyebrow at the comment; a train of thought that was immediately interrupted by the kiss on his cheek. His tail audibly thumped the couch as he leaned over and returned the smooch with one of his own.

Quint was silent for a moment as he thought about Jenny’s question. I believe I told you about this yesterday, but I would like to figure out what it means to be a person, and whether I fit those qualifications. I would also like to figure out what kinda of life expectancy I have, as that’s not something my creators had any desire to discover themselves. He replied, clearly having been thinking about these subjects for a while. Though if you’re looking for a less serious answer, I would like to try some spicy foods from other planets.

“That would explain some of strange abilities our soldiers reporting encountering during the attack on New London. We were under the impression that they had some sort of advanced technology implanted in their bodies, but it seems more likely they had one of those “glitches” you mentioned.” Alpina said, sounding like a few things had clicked into place for her.
”Excuse me Admiral, can you tell us more about the attack on New London? All Lockwood mentioned was that it happened eight months ago and that you were still rebuilding.” Liz asked.
A faint sigh came out over the communicator. “It started when their fleet suddenly popped out of nowhere inside Earth’s atmosphere, completely bypassing our orbital defense network. Fortis sent us a message about how he had one last thing to do before he “completely turned his back on his old way of life,” then his troops started teleporting into various important facilities, power plants, water treatment centers, stuff like that. That’s when things got strange. They acted completely differently from the way they’ve acted in previous asset denial operations, stunning anyone in those facilities and evacuating them before they even started destroying anything. It was only when our soldiers came in using lethal force that they started responding in kind. This went on for a few hours, before they suddenly withdrew all their ground forces and disappeared again. It was only then that we discovered what we believed their true target was.” Tsukuyomi let out another sigh before continuing. “A few hours after the invasion ended, one hundred and thirty six former or current senators were found dead in their homes across the planet. Every single one of them voted against giving Kaon any significant amount of emergency aid after the black ice incident.”

The teenager nodded gleefully and stepped up to give the Sheriff a hug. He felt cold as steel, lacking any warmth or life, even seeming to draw warmth away from his surroundings without even being aware. "Thank you. That means a lot to me. To all of us."

Hivemind had somewhat expected this kind of reaction, but didn't expect Jaken to fall off of the chair. The droid stood up and moved to help Jaken to his feet and back into the chair. "I was investigating the area, and talking with the local law enforcement. Someone was trying really hard to make it look like your father had passed, but then tried equally hard to make sure nobody could double check and make sure he really was. The investigation is ongoing, but I have an idea of where to search next. We'll be making our way there soon."

The Predator apparently didn't get the joke, as he answered normally without a hint of joking. "It's... Difficult to explain. Somehow, things are simpler, yet more complicated. Before, my mind was basic cause and effect. A complex algorithm that determined my actions, yet had no capacity for true knowledge or understanding. Yet, I understand now. I feel I know things beyond simple action and reaction. Do you understand what I mean?"

Hivemind was considering this new information when the Steelhaven's computer pinged him. He checked the monitor quickly. "I've got it!" Hivemind cheered. "The signal has been traced. Admiral, I don't wish to place any more unnessissary strain on Seena, so can you quickly describe some of the abilities you saw? While I develop a full communication system, I can research those powers and hopefully will be able to send a message on how to defend against them."

Well, you certainly fit some characteristics, Jenny told her guest, you're good company and intelligent and I'm pretty sure you've got a sense of humour(!) She audibly chuckled as she finished donning the rest of her armour, leaving the helmet off. Just don't practice jokes when I'm trying to be serious, yeah?
---------------
"Just as long as there's no axe murderers in there, yeah," Messalca said lightly, rubbing Zach's metal back with affection.
--------------
Jaken decided to play it stunned but cool but his wagging tail would have given his feelings away. "I, er, need to be involved in the rescue," he said. "Wouldn't that surprise him?"
-------------
"It's not exactly something taught on Celican colonies," Jenevive admitted. "Just Celican and Standard."
"All of a sudden," Hannabelle muttered, "I remember him writing a letter to the blue Killranger...
I figured he'd used a translation program but...
"
"Lappinean too," Jenevive asked in exasperation.
"I'm just, um, good with learning languages," Corvis said, looking perplexed as to why people didn't think this was normal.
"Just languages," Golten grumped.
-----------------
"You're learning," Keeva told her mighty friend. "The whole worldship is your school."
----------------
"We do, of course, need to keep the information about our exact location as secret as possible, Admiral," Corp advised. "It's very likely that, if Fortis knows where we are, he'll make plans and that's not to our advantage right now."
---------------
Cherry Seena was doing her best not to show too much of the stress she was beginning to feel as she kept the channel open and ticked the boxes on the digital forms.
--------------
"Y'didn't thou'," Sarah told Cailean, rubbing a crooked finger under his chin. "An', as the thin's more yuirs than anyone's, ah'm sure naewun would mind y' learnin'?"
-------------
"Aw, heck with it," Sana admitted, hitting pause on the program before shifting around and kneeling on the sofa to give Denver a proper kiss. "Don't mind, do ya," she asked after backing off a little.

Do not worry Jenny, I do not have any intention of doing anything like that. Quint said, as Kolt’s footsteps could be heard down the hall. Though I was not joking about the spicy foods. I find the heat quite enjoyable.
“I got it!” Kolt cried out joyful as he walked into the room, his watch back on his wrist. “Thankfully the battle didn’t move it too far from the trash bin he tossed it in.”

“Considering that almost half of his soldiers displayed some sort of strange ability, trying to list them all in the time we have left isn’t very practical.” Alpina said, as someone else could be faintly heard talking in the background. “There were, however, two sets of operatives I believe warrant mentioning. One focused more on combating our forces, and had a man with pointy ears who looked and moved like he was made of liquid metal, and some sort of fruit bat women who caused hallucinations. The other focused more on asset denial, and consisted of a maned wolf who could hack our most secure systems with a touch and produce weaponry from his body, and a human wearing the most advanced set of power armor we’ve ever seen. Both groups had authority over the other soldiers, though exactly what kind is hard to tell given rarely they wielded it.”

I figured he'd used a translation program but...
"
"Lappinean too," Jenevive asked in exasperation.
"I'm just, um, good with learning languages," Corvis said, looking perplexed as to why people didn't think this was normal.
"Just languages," Golten grumped.


"How long did it take you to learn Lappinean?" The Lycan asked.

Meanwhile, Eira decided to help entertain Golten while the others dealt with his brother. Two globs of water had melted from her ice hand and hovered in place. They shifted into the form of two samurai, which then started sword-fighting each other on the table in front of Golten.

"You're learning," Keeva told her mighty friend. "The whole worldship is your school."


"I believe it's more than that." The Predator stated. "There was an old thought experiment. I wonder if you've heard of it. Imagine being locked in a room with an instruction book. Someone keeps passing notes into the room with you, written in a language you don't understand. The instruction book tells you what symbols to respond with, but not what the symbols mean. The person receiving your notes and sending you notes understands what those notes mean, and so they believe they are having a conversation. And from their perspective, they are. However, the person reading the instructions has no knowledge a true conversation is taking place, nor do they have an understanding of what is being said." The predator waited for a moment, looking down at Keeva, wondering if she understood where he was going with this.

Cherry Seena was doing her best not to show too much of the stress she was beginning to feel as she kept the channel open and ticked the boxes on the digital forms.

“Considering that almost half of his soldiers displayed some sort of strange ability, trying to list them all in the time we have left isn’t very practical.” Alpina said, as someone else could be faintly heard talking in the background. “There were, however, two sets of operatives I believe warrant mentioning. One focused more on combating our forces, and had a man with pointy ears who looked and moved like he was made of liquid metal, and some sort of fruit bat women who caused hallucinations. The other focused more on asset denial, and consisted of a maned wolf who could hack our most secure systems with a touch and produce weaponry from his body, and a human wearing the most advanced set of power armor we’ve ever seen. Both groups had authority over the other soldiers, though exactly what kind is hard to tell given rarely they wielded it.”


"I'll see if I can find anything on what you've mentioned." Hivemind said. "However, I believe this sustained conversation is putting strain on Miss Seena. I will contact you again once I've developed the interuniversal communicator."

Keeva thought on what Predator had said for a few moments. It ALMOST made sense but not quite and... "The world's full of tests, Pred," she sighed, "and most of the big ones don't really make any sense at all the first few times, especially when you on't know if the test is for you, the other guy, both or everyone. Is it a test for you to work out the language or a test for him to work out if the replies are 'computer generated' but with worse handwriting?" She patted his foot. "Put it another way," she said, "life's also like a 50,000 piece Jigsaw puzzle which you've lost the box to. The picture can be worked out and becomes easier as you fill in the pieces. But, at the beginning, you're gonna end up with a lot of Ducks in Chimneys."
--------------------
"Excellent," Jenny replied, offering Kolt her armoured arm, "Shall we get out of here? Quint wants to try something with Nduja paste for breakfast!" Then I have to check on a few people and visit a necromancer. she added, thinking to Quint.
-------------------
"I... had a... book," Corvis said, wondering if he'd done something wrong. He looked hopefully at his mother. "Have I... done something wrong," he asked, fiddling with his tie.
"Probably best I let the Lycan answer that," Jenevive replied, hoping she didn't have to say the actual words as her other cub watched the distraction and began 'fighting' with his finger claws.
"'Least we know he's intelligent," Hannabelle muttered to Gear. "And I think we need a word with their dad about things his parents could do?"
----------------
"Just no 'leaving me out for my own good', yeah," Jaken asked. "Got me pride, y'know?" He took another spoon of the Ice cream mush.
----------------
"It IS something of a strain," Seena admitted, finishing off the forms and signing them digitally. "Oh, Hive? We'll need to pop down the Medical centre after. There's some biological files down there that I think your Doctors will find useful." She looked down at herself. "Especialy in a few months."

Beside them, Conall is starting to look a little lost, unable to keep up with everything that's happening.

”Then get out of here we shall.” Kolt said, before gently picking Jenny up and flying out of the still partially ruined building. Landing next to the shuttle, he gave a sheepish grin at the nearest Hivemind drone. “Sorry for the delay, we were making sure we didn’t leave anything behind.” He said as he stepped onto the shuttle.

”Understood. Admiral Tsukuyomi, signing off.” She said, as things went silent for a moment. However, it seemed that only Seena could actually end the call, as they soon heard a long sigh come out from the communicator, followed by Alpina’s voice again. “And now I have to figure out how to explain to the others that not only are superpowers a thing now, but they’re something we specifically need to watch out for if the Barbarox ever return. Wonderful.”

"Bluh, I- uh- no, of course not." Denver sat still for a few awkward seconds before taking a deep breath, "Do you think we could do it again?"
------
As soon as Seena signed the forms and submitted them, they were almost instantaneously marked as received and filed by a certain northern mixed breed dog sitting a couple meters away who was doing an absolutely terrible job of hiding his excitement.

Not quite understanding what Keeva was saying, and figured Keeva didn't really understand. "The thought experiment is one designed to speculate on the consciousness of artificial intelligence, and the nature of sentience. A non-sentient AI is like the person who follows instructions to create a response. There is no true understanding. It's simply a step-by-step process of coming to some meaningless output that only has meaning to the recipient. That was how I understood everything before. Everything was just... words. Sometimes mapped to pictures or 3D models, or some list of the object's properties, but that was just the instruction book. I had no awareness beyond the numbers. Now, I feel I know the language, and don't need the instruction book."

Once everyone was on board, the Ibis's side doors closed, then sealed shut with a airy sound as the cabin pressurized. The engines started up, and the drop ship lifted straight up into the air. Gravity shifted as the Ibis turned, pointing it's nose straight up. The rear engines kicked in, and the Ibis launched upwards through the clouds.

Meanwhile in the cabin, a hive droid walked down the center of the cabin with paper and specialized pens, staying attached to the floor using magnets on the bottoms of his feet. He handed out the papers and pens to everyone. "Right... I want all of you to fill out these forms. Provide an account of what happened, what went wrong, and how the situation unfolded and was resolved."

"Ulrich, once we get to the Beacon, you can see me about your new shield generator. I'll help you with the designs."

"Tatiana, I'm still searching for your spare armor. I will find it before we leave, and I'll bring it to the Beacon. Don't worry about it."

"Kolt, when we get to the Beacon, I'll need to speak with you privately. Jenny, I will also speak with you privately, and separately."

"You're not in trouble at all." The Lycan smiled while one of the icy swordfighters did a back handspring to get out of Golten's fingers while the other started sword fighting against his claw. "The speed at which you learn languages could potentially be a sign of a power. It seems you and your brother both have some mental or psychic abilities."

"Agreed." Gear nodded. "Two brothers, both with powers... the odds of that happinin' without a genetic factor are astronomically low."

Kolt loves to do the Superman/Lois Lane flying bit, doesn't he, Jenny asked Quint with humour before settling into the seat next to Kolt and taking a form and pen from the Hivebot. "Right-ho," she told him before filling in the form, detailing how they'd been taken by surprise and how she's needed to find cover for a few seconds and wouldn't have chosen where she had if she'd known of the enemies power and how she'd accepted Quint into herself.... she rewrote that bit three times until she stopped thinking of it as double entendres (which didn't help in other ways either) to help defeat the foe whilst trying not to kill Kolt because that wasn't how she did things.
--------------
Messalca watched the ship head up and away as Saffy contemplated saying 'Hello' to Zach.
-------------
"Jenevive," Hannabelle said, "we're gonna have to have a chat with Kelvin... Sheesh, I hate that name... These things generally skip a generation and, trust me, there's no history on our side of the family."
Golten found himself on the defensive in the 'battle' as he wasn't really up on fighting techniques. Corvis' reaction, of course, was more to gape and wonder if this meant he could get a role in diplomacy or espionage. "Well, it's not fighting," he eventually said, feigning indifference, "but I'll take it."
-----------
"Goes the same way for all of us, Pred," Keeva remarked. "We always start by needing to learn there IS an instruction book and going from there." She flexed her artificial arm. "You could say I've done it more than once. Could hardly get this thing to move the first few months, y'know? Now I don't need a book, either."
-----------
"Safe is boring," Jaken grumbled, "but probably understandable."
-----------
"Oops," Seena muttered, closing the link and rubbing her head. "Probably better we take you down there. Some of the files on my species, er, development is only on sealed medical systems." She began heading away.
Corp, still fighting down his feelings, inclined his head towards the Captain's ready room.
------------
"Aye," Sarah remarked, "Ah'd prob'ly be able t' learn ya." She touched Conall's arm and explained, via sign, that they'd been getting the frequency for the home reality and would be sending the messages through shortly. She also apologised then thought for a moment. If Ensign Seena sends messages to anyone, even if they don't have comms, does that mean she talks into their heads? Want we should ask her to try with you? Oh, she's gone.
-----------
"Well, it's not like I have experience in it," Sana admitted, "so I probably need practice. Just don't listen to those 'outer inner' voices, eh?" She waited for his 'reply'.

"Ah guess we'll hae tae catch her another time. Tha' cuid be quite interestin' though." Conall opines, unaware that Cailean had spoken aloud.

“And here I thought I might do less paperwork as a Champion.” Kolt said dryly as he took a pen and started writing. He wrote about how Ko Sah ambushed him in the bathroom (Shoot, I never took a shower!), how the Yah Rin had mentioned being disgraced by his peers for his previous failures and seemed to be acting alone in his attack, and how Diligitus intervened to end the fight before Jenny was killed. Once the paper had been filled out, he handed it to the nearest Hivemind droid and waited for the shuttle to arrive on the Beacon, gently nuzzling Jenny’s ear as he did so.

if you are referring to his method of carrying you, that is generally how he carries people when he is not in a combat situation. Quint replied as Jenny filled out the form. Also, do you think we should ask Hivemind if he is okay with me being in your head while he talks to you?

Once the call had concluded, Liz and Lewis excused them and went with Corp into the ready room. Once inside, she leaned against her old desk and gave her right hand man a concerned look. “So, what is it you want to talk about that has you acting weird?”

Corp thought for a moment about what he wanted to say and was thankful they were a little further away from the others. He twiddled his thumbs for a moment before removing his helmet so Liz could see his eyes as he talked. "It's, um, it's these powers," he said uncertainly. "I've..." He swallowed, then decided to plough on. "I've had...
affection for, um, you for a long while and... I've been able to press them down but, with these new, um, powers I have and the strength of feelings between the others we were just with, I'm afraid that control has slipped, er, somewhat. I'm, um, trying to get a grip on it...
" He tried to think of new words.
------------
If he reads the reports, Jenny told Quint, he'll know. She leaned into the nuzzling and did a little of her own
