The Transcript For This Page
In the foyer of Dalliances. An A.I. that manifests as an animated feminine face and hands on a screen welcomes and instructs Nicole and Seamus. There are two doorways, one on each side of the A.I. screen.
A.I.: Welcome to Dalliances, the first word in discretion.
A.I.: Please enter separately, through each of the two doorways before you.
Nicole and Seamus exchange discomforted looks.
Seamus: Last chance to change your mind.
Nicole: I guess my curiosity wins the argument. Let's get this over with.
Nicole is in a room standing before a console. The A.I.'s voice speaks.
A.I.: Please deactivate and remove your anysuit, shoes and all jewelry.
Seamus is in a similar room.
A.I.: Please deactivate your powered chair and remove your clothing and any jewelry.
Seamus: I can do the latter, but I require this chair for mobility in this gravity environment.
Back to Nicole: She is now starkers, her arms folded across her chest, and rolling her eyes.
A.I.: Please hold still while we scan for recording devices.
Nicole: As if I'd want to record this little misadventure.
A panel in the console opens and something that looks like a Dejah Thoris' tiara is presented.
A.I.: We detect an M-6460 Series Cortical Implant.
A.I.: You may either choose to permit us access to your implant to deactivate its recording features, or wear this Farraday Crown, which will inhibit recording and transmission.
As Nicole dons the tiara, a door opens behind her, revealing a closet with several items hanging from a rack.
Nicole: This is all I get to wear?
A.I.: You may choose from among the lingere items on the rack behind you.
Nicole has donned a teddy that looks like it came from Victoria's Secret, but conceals her naughty bits.
Nicole: I guess this will have to do.
A.I.: When you are ready you may enter the encounter room, to your left.
