Ace: Miss Rusty's shy assault shuttle friend, Robin, came out of hiding to rescue Grand Leader. She's being treated for radiation exposure and they're going to bring her in here to keep you company as soon as they can wheel in a K'Sel sleeping bench. Lackey's been coordinating with her people non-stop from almost before her cast hardened. She's exhausted two medical attendants and several tubs of burn lotion, so far. She doesn't know it yet, but she's going to be named Acting Grand Leader as soon as the clan elders meet, which will mean that she'll probably be the next Grand Leader. The Captain's dropped all charges against the K'Sel, and the available Awakeneds' analysis of Miss Regina confirms that she's been extensively tampered with. I spent a couple hours working with Miss Roddie on applying anti-virus techniques to remove Lady Banshee's overrides, and Miss Regina's already re-asserting her own judgment of right and wrong, even identifying motivations not her own. She's been put in Sky's custody for now. Or rather, she's The Captain's spy on Sky. Miss Rusty is going to need a completely new upper torso, it's the only thing she doesn't have spares for, and everyone, including Miss Regina is too suspicious of her old body to even think of re-using it. I already locked it in a storage cabinet before heading up to the module. It's going to stay there until someone can make the time to look at it. Lady Farah is technically under arrest in the custody of Miss Rusty and Miss Ruby and must be in the presence of one of them at all times. And she's confined to Launch Deck 3 unless flying, So Miss Rusty has a roommate for a while to practice her social skills on.
X: Ouch! Miss Rusty's cornered me a few times, so I know what she's in for. Talk about a harsh punishment.
Ace: I know what you mean. Anyway, the hull is going to need a complete re-inspection before getting under way again. The Chief Engineer's estimating it will take about two deci-cycles. So you and Miss Roddie will be getting your legs back at about the same time. Probably Miss Rusty and Miss Regina too, since Sky is also getting drafted.
X: Oh woe is me. I'm missing all the fun.
Ace: No problem. Captain Peach is going to let you handle all the paperwork.
Ace: The Jane Austen is going to loan some crew for that before pulling back to Ceres, and the K'Sel wish to stay aboard to provide whatever assistance they can. The Captain has to ask if you wish to board The Austen for treatment at Ceres, but we're pretty sure you're answer will be...
