First topic message reminder :

Starr shrugged and looked out the window again. "I don't know. I just want things to be normal."

Starr paused then tilted her head as if listening to something before she closed her eyes to focus. "The babies called me" She said, smiling happily at that.

Armin smiled behind his mask, bowing his head. "What do they say?"

"Web wants coordinates so we can reopen the portal and meet up again." Starr said then smiled "And that they are all safe there." She looked to Vestia's cameras then "Vestia, can you ask the others if it is safe to bring the kids back now?"

"There's a meeting scheduled for tonight," Vestia said. "It might be good to let everyone discuss this then. I can ask them now though, if you like, but it might be best to discuss in person?"

Starr dipped her head then sighed and nodded "Right, I can be a go between then, I'll tell the kids to rest up for the meeting later, that way we can have Web's input too."

"Great. That should make this all much easier," Vestia said. "We'll get everything sorted out this evening, hopefully."

Armin nodded. "Thank you Vestia." He bowed his head to Starr. "You must be relieved, soon the children will be back where they belong and we will all be together once more" He sounded happy.

Armin nodded. He wondered how she would explain her new child to them, but he didn't want to upset her so he kept his thoughts to himself. He was certain she'd already considered the problem.

Timeskip:
Later that day, Starr and the others gathered for their meeting. Starr brought her egg in it's carrier. They all had to start getting used to it now, before the baby was old enough to 'hear' them.

James and Luka had spent a few hours at the boardwalk, but they came back in time for the meeting. James was wearing a new shirt with some cartoon sharks playing volleyball on the front, and he didn't change out of it for the meeting. Hey, he liked this shirt.

Asher showed up to the meeting, excited to talk about the possibility of bringing the babies home. And less excited about the other stops on their to-do list. Sigh.

Tala, Ethan, and Ellie showed up, all wanting to be a part of this discussion.

The new androids weren't invited, they didn't have the clearance to hear about all this stuff yet.

Mourn didn't care about the meeting, or the babies, he was more interested in going back to his attempts to give the androids more storage space and thus extend their lives.

Armin stayed with Starr as long as she would allow him and went with her to the meeting, remaining close as moral support.

Luka stuck close to James. She'd won a great number of toys on the boardwalk which had been hastily shoved into her room for the time being. She still had some candyfloss on a stick she was nibbling at.

Esk came along and leaned against a wall near the back looking bored.

Kay and Matt looked anxious and eager to see their loved ones again.

Swarm listened in from the ceiling.

Amity and Hewitt didn't come because Hewitt didn't care and had roped Amity into a game of cards.

Asher looked around once the group was assembled. "All right. We've gathered here today to discuss our upcoming travel plans. On the agenda are a variety of important jobs, possibly the most important being the reunion with our loved ones in the Satare Empire. Other items on the list include visiting Haakon to help the minotaurs, and visiting the Sol system for a variety of reasons." He was kinda reluctant to say those reasons out loud, oh dear.

"We also must go to Defiant to concoct plans with the enemy of slavers, Hytar," Tala added.

Asher frowned, then nodded. He'd only briefly heard mention of that plan so far.

"So get to the point." Esk called from the back of the room.

He still wasn't happy about having to meet up with his father again, he'd rather hoped that lot would have done it BEFORE they met up again. Eugh.

Kay frowned at the mention of Hytar as well.

"So what do we need to discuss?" Matt asked.

"Web?" Asher figured out what Starr meant, then brightened. "So he can teleport and help you set up the transporter again?" Oh yes, that was a good idea.
He looked at Esk and Matt. "Well first, we need to figure out what's safe to do when. Whether it's safe to bring the children back yet, who should go to meet Hytar, when the robot rights campaign should happen. If we don't have that all figured out, we could well end up with someone in unnecessary danger, so we need to be careful before we act."

"I'll go meet Hytar." Luka volunteered. It had been her idea to contact him. While she wasn't quite as mad now, she was still pretty angry about the whole thing and trying hard not to stare at Starr's egg.

"We're bringing the kids back now." Matt insisted. "And Thalia."

Kay looked wary. [We aren't in any immediate danger right? least no more than usual. Perhaps the best idea is the send a small group to liase with .. Esk's father] He couldnt' bring himself to write that monster's name. [Defiant isn't that far, if most of us remain on Vestia then we won't even need to go down to the station.] He dreaded to think how chaotic it was there now. Their chief of security sure as heck hadn't seemed to much care about the rampant crime and corruption.
[As for the androids, I think that's something only you and your brothers can judge.] Kay looked at Asher sadly, he knew it had to start at some point, he just... kinda didn't want that to be now.

"Wait till you can walk" Esk advised dryly. "Hard to give a rousing speech when you're an invalid, and if it turns nasty, you can run."

Kay huffed at Esk's suggestion.

"I will go with you Luka" Dawn said, after all, she had already engaged in a contract with Hytar, so she knew what to expect in a way.

"I would love to have the kids back here again" Skye said softly.

Starr smiled softly and looked around at eveyone there. She felt better herself now, getting back into having her friends around them.

"I will also go to converse with Hytar," Tala declared. "Perhaps we should bring with us a star dragon to speak for their people," she suggested.

Asher nodded at Esk's advice. "Of course. I think an android giving a speech from a wheelchair might rather muddy the message." He could just imagine MegaBrainTech's PR firm using his disability as a smokescreen to draw attention away from what he was trying to say. Ugh. "The matter of when this campaign will happen will need some thought." He was sooo reluctant to commit to doing this, omg.

Kay tried to hide the look of relief on his face. He felt guilty about it but he knew how risky this campaign of Ashers would be, and well, he really couldn't deal with the thought of losing him.

Esk groaned inwardly as Dawn volunteered. "Fine, bring Shane or the new one" He hadn't bothered to learn Helen's name. "Starr should stay here, she's too much of a target. Tala, you and me can act as security, just in case someone needs shooting. " He smirked faintly at the idea.

Luka nodded. "Several of us have already met Hytar, we know what's he's capable of. Dawn made the arrangements last time, I trust her to do it again."

Tala nodded to Esk. "Yes, we shall be of great terribleness if such is required," she said proudly.

"I'll go too if there's room," James said. "You might need me for emotional support, or my good looks."

Asher frowned a bit, but didn't argue. James was an adult, he could go visit crazy parents if he wanted to. "All right, Starr, I suppose you can give the hatchlings our location so Web can find us. I suppose they'll be safe enough with us."

Starr nodded and dipped her head, contacting the babies to give them the coordinates of the beach planet.

Asher waited, looking hopeful. He was so looking forward to seeing his daughter again!

Ellie was practically bouncing in her seat in anticipation.

Starr frowned and sat up straighter "Uh,oh. Something has happened" She said then relayed what she had been told, including what Kaliyani had said.

Matt paled a little.

Kay chewed his lip, something major must have happened.

"looks like we gotta do this the hard way then" Esk muttered.
