I’m glad you enjoyed it. My own grandmother, unfortunately, would have been distraught that she wasn’t drinking out of crystal, and would never have realised what the wine was…
I hope Cmdr. Jemel is all right. It _was_ a tough shift. We could check MedBay in case he isn’t.

*To Blaze, with honest curiosity*
But is there anywhere left where public transport isn’t fully automated?13/04/2016 at 16:20 #7141Blaze StrifeParticipant
*to Mundy, surprised*
Of course there is. Even on the old Earth. Not all regions of the planet are advanced enough to have automated transport.13/04/2016 at 16:44 #7148John van LeighParticipant
No idea. When I got the order “coordinate fire with Lancer” I expected to see Jemel on the comms net and was about to request orders, then I saw Das. He seemed to do fine on the outside, but nothing on my reports and briefings for today hints at him. All around, this week is a clusterfuck.14/04/2016 at 06:24 #7233
*even more surprised, back at Blaze*
Really? On Paragon, we mostly relied on the trains, in urban areas. I loved those trains, they seemed to take no time at all. There were cars, but they were self-driving. Nobody needed to learn to drive unless they specifically wanted to, so I didn’t. I suppose it shows…14/04/2016 at 15:19 #7246MatsiyanParticipant
Has anyone seen Wade? I ran into him as I was heading here. He just got back from that special assignment. I broke the news to him and I think he’ll be here as soon as he’s grabbed a shower.14/04/2016 at 16:07 #7250Gabriel WadeParticipant
*steps through the doors of the bar and glances around until he sees the familiar faces from his division. He stops over at the bar to grab a beer before moving to sit at the table with the others. He nods a brief greeting to them all then lowers his eyes to the table for a moment in somber silence before speaking up.*
“Not to understate the situation, but it sounds like I missed quite a lot on assignment. *tips his bottle toward Matsiyan* Thanks for briefly catching me up on that. *nods to van Leigh* Sorry to hear about the Phoenix. I hope she’ll spread her firey wings again soon.”14/04/2016 at 16:38 #7254AramondParticipant
Perfect, now you show up.
*Glares. Goes to take a drink. Realizes that the glass is empty. Glaring intensifies*
After $#!% has hit the fan.14/04/2016 at 19:32 #7270Gabriel WadeParticipant
*raises a brow at Aramond, attempting to gauge his level of inebriation*
“Hey pal, it wasn’t my call to schedule a secret weapons test at the same time as my other assignment. Had I been able to, I would have been aboard the Raven when this went down.”
*he pauses to take a swig of beer and looks ahead in brief contemplation*
“But… I’m not sure I would have contradicted Xavier’s order if I had been.”
*looks at Aramond squarely*
“A weapon with the destructive capability that Matsiyan described to me… The idea to build something like that should never have even been -entertained-, let alone carried forward into action.”14/04/2016 at 20:23 #7276
*with the faintest hint of “Librarian In Shushing Mode”*
Gentlemen, let’s keep this civil.
*adds, a little wearily*
We go where we’re assigned, all of us. And yes, it would have been better if that weapon had never been contemplated, let alone developed. Sometimes I wonder whether they surgically remove people’s common sense before they let them into R&D…14/04/2016 at 20:33 #7278AramondParticipant
That wasn’t supposed to happen! How is everyone missing that? The scientists were just as surprised as we were, and we killed ’em for it. Someone put a decimal point in th’ wrong place, and what’s our response? Throw a nuke at them!
