The Transcript For This Page
Hugo is walking onto the Command Deck; Murphy glances over at him.
Hugo: Anything else happen?
Murphy: I think they tried to send a trans-mat beam at us, but our shields stopped it.
Murphy: Have you re-assembled the drive already?
Hugo and Murphy, looking at the viewscreen.
Hugo: No. Just organized and packed away the parts for later.
Hugo: I wonder why they haven't hailed us?
Murphy: They have scanned us, and finding no biological sapients aboard, might think we're some sort of derelict craft.
External view of Causa Sui and the alien ship, now very close.
Hugo (from CS): Have you scanned them?
Murphy (from CS): I thought that might antagonize them, Hugo.
Murphy: Well, except for our power signature and shields.
Hugo starts to argue with Murphy but is distracted by a new event.
Hugo: I see no advantage to … what's that?
Murphy: Now they're hailing us … I think.
Hugo: Interesting. Not the same formatting as the video transmissions from the Fftpplt ship.
Hugo and Murphy.
Hugo: It's more like they're trying to communicate with a ship's computer.
Hugo: Trying to access its command interface.
Murphy: Well, that's not very friendly.
Hugo and Murphy
Hugo: Well, if they think we're a derelict, un-manned ship ...
Hugo: Let's hail them. Send a video signal and see what happens.
Murphy: What if we don't like what happens?
