"Of course if it wasn't some kind of tragic misunderstanding they'll face consequences."

"This was a threat to Our life," they say, as if he must not have understood the first time.

"Oh! No, no, phasers are stunning weapons."

“They can’t kill someone, then.”

Permalink

"Not by accident. They're very safe."

“It is a lethal weapon, then,” says Eskali, with the tone of someone explaining something to a recalcitrant child. Their gaze flicks over to Jean — can you believe this?

"Again, I'm very sorry for the misunderstanding."

Jean, standing carefully out of view of the transmission, looks extremely unimpressed.

“We do not trust the the Federation to prosecute them appropriately if We should return them.”

"I really must insist. I have a responsibility to my crew."

The noise they make can only really be accurately described as a giggle.

"You insist," they say, like they're talking to a child who's only just learned the word.

"Respectfully, your Radiance, it's not possible for negotiations to continue until our crewmembers are returned."

Permalink

"That sounds awfully like a threat."

They don't look threatened. They're leaning in a little closer, smiling, wings rising behind them, tone completely changed.

"Is that a threat, Admiral? Will you be sending the rest of your fleet to come and get Us?"

"The Federation is committed to a policy of peaceful negotiations."

Permalink

They laugh and stroke Morath's hair with one hand. (He shuts his eyes and shivers.)

"Well, you've already failed at that once, haven't you?"

Permalink

"Again, you have our deepest apologies for the unfortunate incident."

Permalink

"Your deepest apologies are not very deep," they say, skeptically.

Permalink

"If we can make it up to you somehow..."

Permalink

"–well. You could give Us this other one. As a sign of good faith."
