Nostros had Krits take Nakiso to the guest quarters. Nostros returned to the bridge, where he studied as much of the updated data as he could. Krits returned shortly, and while glancing at Captain Nostros, shrugged his shoulders. Krits had a way of reading people, it was a gift.
Nostros had hoped to get a little more information about Nakiso… He was suspicious that perhaps the Captain was hiding something. Perhaps he was a traitor who shut down the defenses that allowed the Drex into the Battain fortress? Perhaps it was all a lie, some tactic to deceive the Terrellians. But… then again why? The Battain were always a proud people, not prone to betray their own kind or those who were allies. True the Terrellians had no current alliances with them, but had always been a friendly neighboring empire.
Nakiso rubbed his forehead, his blue gem glowed bright enough to see in the fully lit room when he was frustrated. It was always a handy warning sign to the crew to give the Captain his space. “How long until we arrive?”
“2 days Sir,” Kasha leaned back in her chair.
“Everyone keep your ears and eyes open and alert, I don’t want a single space speck floating by without being noticed. I want every transmission intercepted and analyzed.”
“Yes Captain.” Kasha and the rest of the bridge crew acknowledged.
