Upon Celestial Tiger: Chapter One

Post by Kooshie on Thu Aug 03, 2017 6:51 pm

First topic message reminder :

A small, fast space yacht. The last owner named it Celestial Tiger.

Three small bedrooms (with bunks), one bathroom. Very small storage hold. combined dining/living area. Everyone's going to hate each other by the end of this road trip.

Luka yelped and moved to take the controls from Ethan, trying to help bring the ship under control. Oops, busted.

Ethan let Luka take the controls, he wasn't nearly as effective at recovering from a spinout as Luka was. "Crap," he muttered.

Tala made her way to the cockpit once the ship had steadied, holding tightly onto the handrails that well designed small ships always had everywhere. "I desire an explanation!"

Ethan looked up nervously, trying to decide whether it was safer to throw the blame on Luka, or if Luka's resentment would prove to be more dangerous down the road than Tala's current anger.

Luka looked away from Tala, looking guilty. "Sorry Captain... I was teaching Ethan how to fly the ship. If he's going to take the night shifts he needs to know.. " She trailed off. "I'm sorry m'am."

Luka wasn't throwing the blame on him? Well that was weird. Ethan looked at her, startled. "She was teaching me, so if I ever have to fly this ship in an emergency, I won't get us killed. It's not her fault I suck at this," he said.

Tala's ears were back and her nostrils were flared. "You must not risk the safety of our crew. We could well be thrown or the eggs could be broken by your antics. If you must lose control of a ship, learn in a simulator."

Ethan lowered his head. "Yes, Captain." He got up so Luka could take the pilot's seat again.

Luka lowered her head, she hadn't considered the eggs. Damn. "I'm... so sorry." She sat down, falling totally silent now. Her cheeks red.

"There has been no harm done. Cease your foolishness, and all is well," Tala said. She looked to Ethan, "You are not to fly this ship until you have been trained in a simulator."

Ethan nodded. "Understood, Captain." He looked like he fully expected her to slap him.

Tala didn't slap anyone, she just left the cockpit.

Ethan looked at Luka uncertainly. "Sorry. I thought I was a less shit pilot than that."

Luka nodded. "It's okay..." She spoke quietly, pressing buttons to get auto pilot back on. "Sorry..."

Ethan shook his head. "Guess we both screwed up some. I'm surprised Tala let us off so easy." Yeah, being told off stung, but it wasn't what he'd expected.

Luka nodded. "We'll uh... when we get back to Vestia there's probably some holodeck programs... " She looked awkward and uncertain.

"Yeah, there must be," Ethan agreed. He hesitated, "Look, if you want me to go away, I can leave you alone."

Luka frowned, she wasn't sure. Part of her wanted to be left alone to sulk, but it also felt really rude when she was the one who'd suggested this and argh.
She shrugged. "Whatever you want." She told him weakly, focusing on the scanners now.

"I'll stay here a while longer then," Ethan decided. He didn't really want to go out there yet, past the crew and their probable annoyance. And he wanted to avoid Tala noticing him for a while.
He looked out the window into space.

Rigel came up to the cockpit, looking to Luka and Ethan "You two alright?"

Luka looked even more akward when Rigel came in. "Yes, we're fine. Everyone's alright yes?"

Ethan looked at Rigel, then hastily at the ground. Making mistakes in front of the entire crew was so not good. "Yeah, are they okay?" He echoed Luka's question.

"I peeked in on Starr, she's curled around her eggs but has Helen and Sawna with her, so she's fine. Far as I know everyone else is too. So, what happened?" Rigel asked curiously

"Good." At least nobody was hurt, then he'd be in serious trouble. "Turns out I suck at piloting," Ethan said, still not looking up. "Tala's banned me from the pilot's seat until I've been trained."

Rigel chuckled at that then shrugged "Best training without getting in the seat or having a holodeck is a game I have, we can download it to your tablet and you can practice that  with Luka until we get back to Vestia, then do simulations there. It is not the same thing, but it has the same action and possible 'disasters' that a real simulation or situation would have." He was glad Ethan was wanting to learn stuff like being a pilot. It was good to know that.

"I don't think my problem can be solved on a tablet, I know the controls on this ship, she just doesn't react the way shuttles do," Ethan said. He looked up at Rigel finally, although his pride was still stinging from his flying and Tala's annoyance. "I'll learn when we reach Vestia, I'm sure her holodeck can create a good simulation." Yeah, he was determined to succeed now. Ethan was nothing if not stubborn.

Luka nodded, still not meeting Rigel's eye, or Ethan's.

Rigel chuckled and nodded "That's true, this little ship doesn't handle like the shuttles. This one has a lot more power to her." He said then turned to go "Well, if you want the game, even just for distraction, let me know."

Ethan nodded. "Thanks. Maybe I'll take you up on that sometime." He frowned, uncertain about something, "Rigel?"

"Why aren't you acting angry?" Ethan asked. "Why didn't Tala hit us?" You weren't supposed to remind people if they forgot to punish you for being stupid, but he was really kind of confused right now.

Rigel laughed a little at that and shook his head "Everyone makes mistakes sometimes. You just made one and you both took your responsibility for it. No one was hurt and you promised to not do it again until you get properly trained." He said then shrugged "That's all there is to it, really"

Ethan shook his head. "That doesn't make sense. Tala's a minotaur, they have tempers. And mistakes aren't tolerated on ships." He knew he shouldn't look a gift horse in the mouth, but this was just bizarre.

"This is Tala's ship, not mine, so any discipline is her choice. She chose to just ban you from flying until you get the sim time in." Rigel said then shrugged.
