There are indeed a handful of uniformed women making their way aboard.
Eelesia leads Verity and Araeneve to follow them.
Inside, the Mononoke's motif seems to be smooth blue-tinted metallic walls with a soft horizontal strip of lighting running along the center of each wall.
"They've assigned us guest cabins," Eelesia explains, leading the way through the spacious corridors, passing the occasional crewmember, who seem to have been told to expect Araeneve and don't gawk. "There's a diplomatic team in the dignitary's suite. You don't have to meet them but you can if you want to. I asked them to put us in the crew quarters, so we can be near the bridge. I'll introduce you to Captain Anziel after you settle in."
The 'crew quarters' it turns out, are individual, private, three-story apartments with variable-gravity pathing (some of the walls are also floors, instead of there being anything as mundane as stairs), functional but high-quality amenities, and a ten-foot by twenty-foot viewscreen currently simulating a window.
