"Station lighting's a pretty trivial fraction of our power consumption."

"Then I might not be much help with that. Are you also satisfied with your current ways of keeping things hidden and soundproofing rooms?"

Permalink

"I don't think we've had any noise complaints. What do you mean by keeping things hidden? Is that a cloaking ability?"

"Yes, I can do something like this..." She turns herself the color of the wall behind her. If the wall has any patterns or designs she doesn't match them. "Or I can do it like this." She cloaks herself and her immediate surroundings in impenetrable blackness for a moment, then drops the illusion.

"- huh. That's not a thing the station really needs but you could interest ships. I can put in a note to Starfleet if you like but they might want you to go through a lot of training before letting you sign on."

"Would working with Starfleet make it any harder to figure out how to get home?"

Permalink

"...No, if anything I'd think it'd be easier."

Permalink

"Then I'd like to work with them if they'll have me. Thank you."

Permalink

"You're welcome. Do you have guest quarters yet?"

Permalink

"Not yet, this was more urgent."

Permalink

"...it was?"

Permalink

"The pilot who rescued me offered me another night on the ship and it matters how soon I get home and I assume help with that won't be free."

Permalink

"Oh. Well, I can set you up with guest quarters and then messages about your cloaking ability will have somewhere to go."

Permalink

"Thank you! Do I owe you for this?"

Permalink

"...no. Unless you're talking to a Ferengi, within Federation space you can expect anything that costs money to be clearly labeled."

Permalink

"That's good."

Permalink

"Ferengi are the ones with the huge ears and four-lobed heads and pointy teeth," adds Lieutenant Zirs.

Permalink

Nod. "Should I expect to run into many of those?"

Permalink

"Not too many, but they pass through now and then."

Permalink

"I'll try to avoid them." And later she'll have to ask the computer if they sound or smell distinctive, but there's no sense in telling this person more than he needs to know. "So do I need to do anything about setting up guest quarters or is that something I can leave to you?"

Permalink

"I can set that up. Let's put you in 205. Deck two, if you take the nearest turbolift it'll be on your left."

Permalink

"Will it be ready if I go now or will it take time to set it up?"

Permalink

"It's clean and set up, unless you have particular needs?"
