Space Station named Defiant

First topic message reminder :

The two shuttles both grabbed the rogue shuttle in their tractor beams and together towed her back to the shuttle bay where more security officers were ready and waiting to question her.

"you think the captain would agree to come with us?" Swarm looked kinda eager at that thought. Having everyone all together, no having to worry about him.
"Your alterations shouldn't take long yes?"

---

Esk nodded. "They turn a blind eye unless you mess with the civilians, the shops or the station itself. Otherwise, they couldn't care less about us all killing on another in the middle of the promenade." He shrugged. "Wonder if those bounty hunter assholes got bailed out yet... " He mused to himself.

"The captain will think we are betraying him," Tala said with a shrug. "Whether it will hurt him more to stay alone, or leave therapy, is anyone's guess."

"must be careful how we present the idea." Swarm nodded. "Even in a less dangerous state we doubt he'd take such desertion well. We must be cautious."

"Good thing James is the one bringing this up to him," Tala said. "His silver tongue will do wonders for Acus' interest in this idea." The tone of her voice might have been sarcastic. It was hard to tell.

"James and the captain seem to like one another.... in a strange way. The captain appears to trust the android. " Swarm remarked, they had faith in James.

"It might help that he thinks James is unable to do anything when he is commanded not to." Rigel said quietly

~~~
Dawn shrugged and watched the other people on this station on the way to the ship again.

Tala ate steadily, letting the others do the talking while she chewed.

~~
James, meanwhile, had somehow made it back to the Silver Devil safely, despite still wearing his badge, and giving strangers insufferably cocky grins as he passed. He pranced up to Acus’ room and rapped smartly on the door. “Room service!”
“Come in,” Acus replied dryly.
James let himself in, kicking the door shut and lounging against the wall in a pose that didn't really match his words at all. “Oh great and noble master--”
Acus raised an eyebrow. “What do you want?”
James coughed nervously. “I found my brother today.”
“And you want to leave me to go with him, or else you want me to buy him,” Acus guessed.
“Yeah,” James said, wincing. “The first option. Only for a couple weeks though.”
Acus frowned. “All on your own with strangers? Is that safe?”
“Well actually…”
“Go on.”
James squirmed slightly. “The others are going, too. They have a business deal, and want to take a vacation on a giant cruise ship. For just a few weeks.”
Acus’ look could have cut steel.
James quailed.
“And me?” Acus asked quietly.
“We didn't know whether you were ready to stop seeing the therapist or not,” James said nervously, “The invitation is open to you too, I'm sure.”
The avian opened his mouth to say something, then shook his head. “I'll need to think about this. Get out.”
James was all too happy to obey.

"We do hope he doesn't get himself into trouble. We are fond of the android." "We are fond of all the crew" "except the bounty hunter" "yes, the bounty hunter... "

---

"Any luck, Vicky managed to kill them. " Esk snickered. "Idiots, didn't even realise they were getting their arses kicked by a bounty." They headed back to silver devil. True to his word, Esk neither puked, nor fell over. Though he did walk a little wobbly.

James saw Esk Luka, and Dawn returning, and waved at them. "Have a good beer or two?" He asked, watching Esk's progress with interest.

Esk nodded and found a seat to collapse into. "Or six... actually I lost count."

"Seven." Luka informed him.

"I think they water the beer down." Esk complained.

"Yet you're still drunk". Luka told him.

"And you're irritatingly sober."

James smiled a bit. "Sounds like a good time was had by all. I volunteer to help Esk with his hangover, especially if he's shirtless again."

Esk's eyes narrowed at the android. "What IS your issue?"

"Her species? She has lost too much time. I remember very little of them, but they're considered second class... er, closer to indentured servants... in their empire, so-to-speak. They're used as servants. Or appetizers, really, depending on how well they're as servants." Merith said, looking down at the girl pitifully.

"I have lots of problems. Trying to find my worst one is going to be tedious." James smiled more genuinely. Nothing like needling Esk to improve your mood. "They're at a restaurant with Tala. She was getting hungry, so we got scared."

~~
Asher shuddered. "That's horrible. I'm glad she's here now."

Merith nodded sagely. "It's little wonder why she and whomever she was with is looking for sanctuary, certainly. Though, hopefully she can reunite with them when they reach there. From her story, it sounded like she was guided by one of the entropium salvation runners. Scouts don't really meddle with empire laws, but salvation runners are known to create... er, underground railroads in order to help servant classes escape slavery."

He turned and smiled sadly. "That's one of the reasons why the Terran android situation is so controversial. It would require a lot of paperwork, re-stationing and reassigning of empire category, as well as needing to assign salvation runners to Terra and Terran ports."

Esk snorted. "At least you admit it." He went to go find some water.

"How did it go?" Luka asked James. "On the cruise ship."

"It's a shame that her species is treated that way at all, but I'm glad they have help." Asher smiled grimly, "If we're lucky, the Terran android situation can be resolved without such measures. The Terran Empire is, in theory, a very idealistic place."

~~
"It was amazing. I punched Tala, which means my life is now better than anyone else's," James said quietly, grinning.

Luka snickered. "you PUNCHED Tala? How are you not in pieces?"

Esk came back with water. "Who punched what?"

"He punched Tala!" Luka told him

"The minotaur?"

"YES!"

"What'd she do?" Esk asked flatly.

"I got sick of her 'be a good slave' crap." James looked proud. "She decided to not trample me because she thought it was funny, I think."

Esk smirked. "about time you snapped. Do we have to worry about you murdering us all in our beds yet or what?"

"He's not going to murder us!" Luka protested. "a.. are you?" She eyed James warily, the shook her head, nah. "He's our friend. He's just less of a pushover now." She grinned. "How does it feel? does it feel weird?"

"Pretty sure I'm not gonna murder anyone," James said. "But man, you think I'm less of a pushover now? My brother pointed a gun--an actual gun!--at the programmer to keep my programming from making me leave. It was awesome. And no, it actually feels about the same," he said, "Which is weird too."

"'In theory,' is what I'm worried about..." Merith sighed, finally showing his genuine concern for the idea, almost as if he wanted it gone from the start. "But yes, as long as the Aurum Empire doesn't sniff us out, she and the dragons will be safe."

"Your programming is messed up" Luka remarked. "Glad you survived though. Who else would carry all my shopping?" She smiled and pulled him into a big ol' hug.

"I take it he didn't have to shoot the programmer." Esk asked as he sipped his water.

Asher gave Merith a questioning look. "The Terran Empire is basically good, despite their flaws. We just need to speak to their ideals and get their protection, and things will be a lot better for all AIs." He frowned, "Are the dragons in danger?"

~~
James hugged Luka back, happily, and snorted at Esk's comment. "No, the threat was more than enough."

Luka couldn't resist ruffling James' hair affectionately as she pulled away. It always bugged the hell out of her brothers when she did it.

"Does the captain know you've gone rogue?" Esk asked, he sounded utterly unconcerned as he finished his glass of water.

"The Aurum Empire believes all dragonkin and all species in relationship to dragonkin should be governed under them, whether by force or annexed." Saraphine gave her input.

Merith nodded again, "A very conquistador-like empire, that one..."
