Francis followed along with friends and superiors, finding himself looking down corridors and alleyways as he did so, just like a real security guard. He kept alert as best he could and listened to very.

"Yes sir!" Avery gives the captain a salute before enthusiastically marching forwards, leading the small train of four that had formed.

"So, how was the trip over sir? Hope everything went smoothly? You know you've stirred up quite the commotion around here." The canine tilted her head back, slowly making her way towards the entertainment section of the deck. She hadn't been there much herself, but she's heard many amazing stories. A movie theater with an all you can eat buffet, stage-shows, and even a water park...

"The trip was fine. Had a bit of a delay at port due to engine troubles but, otherwise, it was smooth sailing, no pun intended," Karlous replied, looking around at what Apollo City has to offer as they made their way to the entertainment section, "And a commotion, you say? I take it then there were some interesting rumors about me before I arrived?" Karlous knew his reputation preceded him but, some reason, he was always surprised when he learn that some people are frightened of him.

"Hey, once a showdog, always a showdog. You're working for us too, you know." JD points out.
"But eh, not bad, not bad. It's not quite right though. We need something for the whole show, not just the choir. Also the whole Norse thing is a bit overdone in opera, isn't it?" he jokes.

~~~~~~~~
"So... How do you like being a security guard, Francis?" Makani asks eventually.

"Oh," Francis breezed as he followed the group, checking down the passageways and decks, "it's not so bad as all that. It keeps me busy and doing things for the first time in my life so there's that. There's always the possibility of facing life ending danger but that's an as you come thing. And it probably won't get that bad..."

"Yes sir! With the last captain's departure we grew a bit curious of who was going to replace them! Even moreso when we couldn't really find any details on who you were, I hope that doesn't bother you! We were all just curious of who we'd be working with, the staff especially." Avery gave the man an apologetic smile as they rounded a corner, the entertainment section now laid out in front of them.

"Now... would you like to be introduced to our talented anidroid actors? Or maybe view some other kind entertainment first?"

Karlous chuckled a bit, "It doesn't bother me. Info about me is a bit on the hard side to find and, what info is available, is mostly my heroics back in the Navy," before directing his attention the splendor of the entertainment section, whistling at the sights, "Well, I would be interested in checking out that theater I've heard some marvelous things about it from my time on Aurora Garden."
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
"Part-time. Remember, like I sad, I'm still a Rescue & Recovery member!" Torque again reminded JD with a smile, "Though you are right about the overplaying of Norse...hmm...Tell the truth, I can't really think of anything to creative. Only name that's coming to mind is 'The Galactic Symphony' but that's it."

"Yeah. I feel like Apollo City is pretty safe." Makani agrees. "Can I ask what you did before you joined the ship? Were you always in security or...?"

~~~~~~~~
After buffing out the last smear on the bannister Kelly returns her polish and rag to the cleaning cart and the cleaning cart to the janitorial cupboard, and then snaps her disposable gloves to the bin. Pulling on her white cotton serving gloves again, she returns to the lobby and pauses by the bar to run a quick automated systems check on herself before deciding which task to tackle next.

"Me," Francis replied as they headed along the ship. "Oh, no, no. After mom and... sis - but THAT'S a longer story than I knew - left us, I was kinda swaddled in cotton wool until we got here. Everything catered for by Anidroids. Rarely allowed to leave the house by myself." He snorted. "Rarely able to leave the house full stop. So I got good with computers and that sort of world. Which is kind of how I ended up in security." He glanced over at the new Captain but decided that he'd probably know anyhow. "Made it so the system couldn't see me here - so I could get some privacy - and then said 'hello' to one of the staff. They saw someone standing where ship systems said no-one was and took me in." He chuckled. "Serendipity struck due to manners." He paused as they reached the foyer on their trip. "And here we have the eternally lovely Kelly Doyle," he said, by way of introduction, giving the ani-droid a small bow. "How are you today, Kelly? Have you met the new Captain and my friend Makani?"

"Heya there Kelly!" The canine waves, all smiles.

"We're giving the captain the tour of the ship! He wanted to see what type of entertainment the ship had to offer! Though if you could..." She leaned in close, "We're not too sure how many people are aware of the captain's arrival. So if you could, keep things on the hush hush until there's a formal announcement."

Torque shrugged, "More like fifteen new songs...I decided to work on a new album called 'The Beast Unleashed', which will be a return to my more heavier side I've been known for (Last album I did that had a heavy side was 'Rebel With A Vengeance' which, coincidentally, was my last album) but..." he then crossed his arms and leaned back against the chair "...I guess you can say I got Writer's Block. I only got three of the songs written then bam! Can't think of anything else."

Karlous, who was looking over the nearby posters and taking in the beauty of the place, looked over at both Avery and the droid, when he heard his title mentioned, and waved with a smile.

"Three's still a good effort! Much better than most of these modern celebrities that only seem to be able to release one or two singles in a decade." JD encourages.

~~~~~~~~
Kelly immediately comes out of standby mode and shifts her scan to run in the background.
"Good morning, Francis! All my systems seem fully functional although my latest scan is only forty eight percent finished, thank you for asking. I hope you are well too!" she answers, returning the bow.
"I have met Makani but I have not yet had the pleasure of making the Captain's acquaintance.Good morning to you too, Captain, Makani and Avery. And of course I shall be discrete, Avery. Would you all care to accompany me into the auditorium? It would be my pleasure to introduce you to the gentleman who owns this establishment."

At the top of the stairs, on his way out of the booth, Todd notices the captain in the foyer below but is too far away to hear Avery's instruction. Should the captain decide to visit JD, Todd will make sure he's announced properly.

~~~~~~~~
Makani had been interested by Francis' story but the group arrived at the theatre before he could ask any questions. Knowing the moment had passed, the cat contents himself with remaining quiet and polite, greeting the droid with a polite nod and a friendly "G'Day".

"Of course, Kelly," Francis replied politely. "Out of interest, with the shows and films you have available, which one do you think Tegan might like to see with me next?" He wondered if she'd respond. With her permission, he was trying to encourage her to gently broaden her programming by encouraging her to offer opinions based, as they often are, on extrapolations of past events. Plus the fact that he did, in point of fact, largely trust her decisions.

"That sounds like a great idea Miss Kelly!" Avery quips, turning to the captain and motioning for him to following along before falling into step with Makani.

"Pssst, Makani. I might have to lean on you guys in case anything in the theater needs to be explained... I actually haven't been here in a while."

"Yeah, that is true," Torque chuckles, "Still, I would love to be able to give people a good reason to get this album, you know? I mean, just the fact I'm returning to the music business with this new album was enough to get many excited...but I just don't want this to be just another Torque album. That and...I would love to be able to avoid controversy for once..." a small but audible growl came out of his mouth, "I swear, those parent groups have it out for me!"

Glancing over from the poster, Karlous walks over to Avery and follows them, while adding, "This is a lovely theater. Beethoven himself would've loved to perform here."

"We'll be fine, Avery. We've got the best possible tour guide." Makani whispers back, nodding at Kelly.
"But of course I'll do my best to answer any questions too."

~~~~
"Thank you, sir. We are proud of it!" Kelly answers with a smile as she leads the way.
"Well, Francis, we do have an upcoming production of The Phantom of the Opera that you both might enjoy. It involves romance, drama, murder and sword-fighting. Something to keep the both of you entertained." the droid suggests.

~~~~
Todd discretely disappears back into the sound and lighting booth.

~~~~
"Well, if it helps at all, you're welcome to make use of our facilities here. I'm sure the band would love featuring in one of your albums, plus it's good free publicity for us. Win-w- What on Earth?" JD stops, startled as a trumpet fanfare fills the auditorium.

"Ladies and gentlemen, the Doyle Theatre Company is proud to present... Captain Admiral Karlous Denver!" the PA booms as the brass, drums and cymbals continue and a spotlight focuses on the door through which is walking.

Keeping the door held open behind her back, Kelly immediately facepaws.
"I am so sorry, sir. It seems Todd didn't get the message about discretion. I will have words with him later. I can assure you that we are quite alone here aside from JD and Mister Torque though."

In the stalls JD has jumped to his feet and dropped into a theatrical bow.

Karlous, however, was red in the face as he was attempting to stifle himself but soon erupted into laughter. He then clapped at the performance, "Of all the ways I've ever been introduced...that is, by far, the greatest I've ever been introduced. Would I have preferred a more discrete intro? Yeah...but I'll let this one slide," he smiled at Kelly as he looks over at JD and..."Wait a second..." he then remarks, noticing Torque standing there, saluting him. Walking over to him, he asks him, "Are you Torque Nightshade?"

"Y-yes sir?" Torque replied, a bit worried at why the new captain singled him out before having a mild panic as he watched him dig into his jacket, only to pull out something very familiar to him, "I know this is silly...but could I have your autograph?" It was one of Torque's earliest albums, 'Drachenfeuer', and, as it turned out, Karlous was a huge fan of his. Torque was flabbergasted as he signed it, "I didn't realize I still had this many fans out there!"
"You kidding? There's still a forum up discussing your legacy and we are all excited for your next album!" Karlous smiled while pocketing the album, making Torque blush a bit. Turning his attention back to JD, he said to him, "And to you? Everyone back at base told me you host some of the greatest plays ever written and performed here, along with having the best music as well. I look forward to spending an evening or two listening to the symphonies of this fine establishment!"

Avery's only indication of surprise was an ear-twitch. But upon glancing at Karlous and seeing that he wasn't too bothered by it, she let the moment of panic pass, and gave the reigns of the tour over to Kelly and JD while she stood back.

Francis smiled genially at Kelly. "I trust your judgement," he said before trying a small joke, "you know how Tegan likes the sword fights, eh?" On the fanfare, he switched into action, pulling out his stungun and tensing as he scoped for targets until he realised exactly what was going on. He put the gun away and relaxed. "Sorry," he said awkwardly, automatically apologising to Kelly as she was closest.

"It is okay, Francis. At least you have good trigger discipline." Kelly smiles.

"Huh. You're packing heat. Where did you pull that out of? How did I not notice it sooner?" Makani asks.

"My apologies, Makani. If I'd realised it would make you uncomfortable I'd have asked him to leave the gun with our staff at the concession stand."

"Oh, no, it's fine, Kelly. Just surprised me, that's all. Have you gotten to tase anyone yet, Francis?" Makani asks, curious.

~~~~~~~~
"Thank you, sir. We'll look forward to welcoming you. And if even half the rumours about you are true then it's an honour to make your acquaintance and to call you my Captain." JD answers, returning the compliment.

"There are tons of rumors about me, it seems," Karlous remarked with a chuckle as he pocketed the signed album before saying to Torque, much to his surprise, "By the way, speaking of rumors, the old captain did tell me about your request to retire from the Rescue & Recovery team here. I was hesitant at first as you are one of the top R&R Members. But..." he then looked around at the establishment for a bit, before handing Torque his papers, "I understand why you wanted to retire. So here, consider your retirement request accepted." Torque, who wanted to tell JD he was retiring the day it was happening, nodded and accepted the papers, "Thank you, sir. It's going to feel nice to get back to my music...just hope my album does good..." He then turned to JD, who appeared to be sporting a surprised look, "Kind of a shocker, huh?"

"Uh, no no," Francis said, a little shame-facedly, as he put the weapon away. "Never been a need. People generally don't want trouble, they just want to have a nice time."

"...Uh, yeah... Was it really just five minutes ago you were telling me you didn't want to leave R&R and weren't really a showdog any more?" JD asks once he's picked his jaw up off the floor.

"Yeah. And you clearly know how to handle that weapon too. Which is cool." Makani grins, glancing up at the chandelier and proscenium.
"Really something, this place, isn't it? Like stepping back in time!"

"Yeeeah, I was kind of lying..." Torque admitted as he rubbed his shoulder sheepishly, "I turned in my three-weeks notice three weeks ago and I retire today, actually..."
"Again, bit of a shock to everyone at R&R as you were their best member," Karlous replied.

"Yeah," Francis remarked, "it's kinda like the old Italian luxury liners. Couldn't compete on speed so went for elegance. Now we get speed and elegance."

Avery nodded in agreement, "I'll have to make some time to catch a show! I've only seen clips here and there on the ViewTube and read a few historic plays. And I've been hearing nothing but good things about this theater from the passengers." The canine strayed a bit forwards to get a better look at the stage.

JD pauses and sniffs the air.
"Do you smell that, Torque?" he asks innocently, "It's the smell of pants burning."

"Really? You haven't been yet? You've really missed out then!" Makani exclaims.

"You know, if you folks would like a bit of a demonstration, I have the choir and orchestra due to start a rehearsal in about five-" JD pauses as a reed instrument squawks somewhere below the stage.
"Five minutes." he continues with a lopsided grin.
"Sounds like the orchestra is arriving." he finishes as a door thunks somewhere inside the orchestra pit and assorted musicians begin to file in, snap on lights attached to music stands and warm up and tune their various instruments.
