X: Ace? C 'mon in. Th' water'z fine! Sumthin' wrong?
Ace: They didn't tell me you were taking a bath.
X: OH! It'zn't really water. It's a gel 'n' restrainin' field ta hol' my back 'n' hip imo-, in-, still. I'm stuck in here for a couple centi-cycles, then they stick me inna cast and put me in a recuperation room nex' ta th' Heavy Gym for about 15 to 20 more centies.
Ace: So about 6 to 8 weeks? Well, you're still naked.
X: Yeah! Chief Medic says it's 'cause clothes keep the gel from workin' right. I think it's to keep the inmates from escaping. But, hey, through this stuff, anything you might see is probably your imagination anyway, so go ahead and look my way.
X: Much better. I'll say you Terrans make some good drugs. How long have I been out of it and what have I missed?
Ace: It's almost noon down in Korea, but no one will have checked on me yet. I'm heading down in a few minutes. The Chief Medic gave me a pill that will give me a light fever, so no one, not even myself, will question my need for sleep. Sky's in her own bed with a medical attendant watching over her. There's no chance of her arm being regenerated, but she was pulling up specs for prosthetic arms before they even took the stimulator off.
X: Tell her I said no built-in weapons.
Ace: The Captain said the same thing, so she's only putting in a forcefield tool.
