"It's your private property, where I'm from you probably wouldn't be convicted of murder for kicking out a trespasser even if it did kill me."

Permalink

"Obviously it would kill you. I don't suppose I'd be likely to be caught, I suppose, but I'd absolutely be convicted of murder, and anyway don't mind cooking for two for a couple of weeks."

Permalink

"Oh. Your laws might be different than ours, do you have a copy of them with you?"

Permalink

"Yes, although they might suffer in translation."

Permalink

"Maybe the translator could read them to me tomorrow?"

Permalink

"Yes, it can do that."

Permalink

"Thank you. Should I keep it with me while I'm on the ship or will you want it back for something?"

Permalink

"It can talk to you anywhere on the ship. The thing you're holding is mostly for pictures."

Permalink

"Will it be able to hear me wherever I'll be sleeping?"

Permalink

"Unless you want to turn that off, yes."

Permalink

"How do I turn it off?"

Permalink

"You tell it to. I will be able to hear you from here through the door if you scream in your sleep."

Permalink

"Thank you. ...If you want better soundproofing I can do that, by the way."

Permalink

"I'm usually here alone, and don't mind if you listen to me talk in my sleep, but if you want to try it carefully for your own privacy I don't mind."

Permalink

"Okay. But let me know if you need anything hidden, I'm reasonably competent at that and out of work."

Permalink

"I'm not in the market, but I'm sure you'll find interested parties anywhere you care to travel in Federation space, since the ability's unheard of!"

Permalink

"I suppose I will."

Permalink

"I wish you luck."

T'Mir can stay up if convenient; Echan gets first choice of sleep shift and her pick of T'Mir's clothes (mostly different colors of loose linen pants and variously embroidered tunics, plus stretchy soft pajamas).

Permalink

Echan is impressed with the pajamas, they're not a familiar fabric.

"When you need me out of your bed just shout at me, otherwise I might sleep in late."

Permalink

"You can sleep as long as you like as long as it's not for more than - uh, twenty times as long as you've been here, that might get to be too much. I don't need to sleep very often."

Permalink

"I probably won't sleep that long at a time."

She does, however, sleep longer than the average human.

Permalink

She's had an exciting day, T'Mir doesn't read into it. She does survey. When Echan comes out in the morning they're orbiting a different planet; this one is blue and silver with threads of gold.

Permalink

Echan does her best to let T'Mir pretend to not be sharing space with a stranger. It's probably politer to stay out of the way and listen to Federation laws, maybe see if there are few enough that she can memorize them the first time through.

Permalink

It's really a lot of laws; if she doesn't go more than two bullet layers deep of clarifications and exceptions she can get through it in five hours.

Permalink

"Excuse me, translator, why are there so many of these?"
