((Tactical Science Lab, Deck 4, CIC Desdemona))
Genkos was playing a risky game - they all were. But he needed their estimates to be shorter, and their work to be faster. They didn’t have days to work on this, and even if they did, there were other things that needed to be done.
Adea: You have half that - get it done.
Genkos could feel the hostility from several members of his team; Jovenan rolled her eyes, and his telepathy felt the simmering resentment just beneath the surface of most of the rest.
Lux: We’re not just spinning out a frisbee, sir ::moves closer to Adea:: We’re dealing with quantum physics. If we get this wrong, we might cause a chain reaction that could destroy the very fabric of space. Not just for us, for everyone. The end of reality altogether.
Genkos moved closer to Lux, his arms folded across his chest and glared at her. What he didn’t want to admit was that the end of reality didn’t sound that bad to him - it meant the end of the Shint war and of suffering completely. Not bad work for an afternoon.
Adea: I gave you an order. Follow it.
Lux: ::unhappy:: I understand. You’re the boss.
The rest of the team turned to face one another again. Their attention was on the Lt Colonel, who relished in the power… just a tad.
Thevn: That gives us at least a day to get the shields and the shuttle primed for action. ::to Adea:: As she said, ‘you’re the boss’. Where do you want us?
Adea: Where do you think you’ll be most useful.
Jovenan: I could go down to the shuttlebay. Since you’re in such a hurry, installation needs to be started right away, and somebody needs to show the engineers how to do that.
Genkos nodded at Jovenan’s suggestion and turned to the others.
Thevn: As you say, Sir. I’ll need to know what our target is for the most accurate modifications, so until we get that information from Vik and Lt. Kader, I’m going to be following up on the Resistance intel, see if we missed anything.
Again, Genkos nodded and scratched at his beard.
Adea: Good idea, right. Dismissed.
Jovenan nodded and left the room, after a short conversation with Lux. Genkos shook his head, rolling his eyes at the ceaseless chirpiness of their Edo companion. He spoke to Hallia and Kuva.
Adea: I wish I had half her energy.
