"Zee you," Hug'sh barks to Zaef and Arketta. Kind of a balancing act - simple Naranai for when he's acting, Whirrsign for when he's not, should be fine as long as he doesn't overdo it and the others don't answer in it. In any event, he's got the gear and his two left hands wouldn't be much use on the ship. He sticks with Angel, then, accompanying the noble on his way to the temporary lodgings.

Arketta hangs back. "I've got to get the ship sewn up and secured," she says. "Za - Second? You're with me."
Zaef looks back to Arketta, then to Angel and Hug'sh and shrugs. "Guess boss lady's still got ahold of my balls. See you at the hotel later."

What Angel meant by "we carry our own bags" is, of course, that Hug'sh carries the bags. What's a survey team without survey gear, after all, and it won't walk itself over to the skimmer pool by itself - Angel's luggage excepted, of course. The sulfur and trace metals in the air linger in Hug'sh's sinuses, and you better believe his sinuses are huge, so there's a lot of room to linger. What did he expect? Better breathe through his mouth here.

"Let's hope they don't have a Wherren warrior-slave in the camp," he comments to the team as they walk casual, literally humping the gear on his back. The tufts on his ears stand up a bit. "Ten minutes in this place and you could smell the oil and metal shavings on us from half a klick out. On the plus side, we already made some friends. Turai scanner overhead, that's SOP. IDs should hold up. The other trin walking with us the next street over, that's...not." He snorts. "Let's see what their next move is."

Viaweph nods. "We hit the floor in a few hours for some intro coverage," he says. "I figure that's as good a time as any to press the flesh with the cabal leadership. What's your cover?"
"Industrium looking to start a related industrium here, with some very exciting Turai and high security contracts," Garrett says. "Mantas and high security skimmers and ships, just the thing this dangerous galaxy needs. It's Ibash's time to branch out from pleasurecraft into where the real money is. Luis is the tech, Hale here is our Turai contact-slash-bodyguard, and I am, of course, the brains of the operation."
Viaweph grins. "Dangling some fat Turai contracts plus whatever off-the-books work for the criminals and well-heeled? I just might take you up on that."

The notion of mulching Steward Olona in the disassembly forges of his own monstrosity gets appreciative nods from the rebels. "Sounds like a fucking plan. First thing tomorrow, we'll suit up and start scouting," Hoim says.

Angel looks around, sniffs the sulfurous air, and scowls. "Where's my skimmer?" he asks plainly, as if it not already being parked and ready puts the loadmaster's job at risk.
"Ah, well, the industrium temporary lodgings are just down the road -" the loadmaster stammers.
"So that's what kind of planet this is," Angel sniffs.
"Errr," the loadmaster says.
"Good," Angel says. "This is a working planet, they shouldn't be wasting skimmers on me. We're a survey team, we can carry our own bags." Amusingly enough, his own bags hover at his hip, more than able to carry themselves. "Tell the skimmer pool that we'll need work sleds - private ones."
The loadmaster bows. "Right, yes, sir," she says, and scurries off.

"Sounds like we've got some places to scout, then," Luis says. "I should see what I can turn up on their digital presence. Orbital headquarters might be harder to get into that the Spspire, but we might have more options once we're there, and there's always blunt options. it sounds like Quaj is the one we need to ensure doesn't end up in charge of any of the factions, if we can help it when we split them up."

"Cool. Grand Theft Harvester it is. I'm thinking that we only get one surprise shot, if that - and the garrison makes more sense. If they're out of the picture there'll be less to deal with on the way to the palace." FTE shrugs. "Olona himself will have time to bail if we go that route, though. I figure we either let his failure lead to his own punishment -" at this, the Sheen gives a thumbs down - "or we introduce some separate malicious code to the palace to keep him bottled up until we can get the harvester there. Maybe we can handle that part when we introduce the routines to override the palace override for the harvester."

Hug'sh stays well clear of the greeting committee, busying himself as an additional crew hand for the post-landing procedures. His gaze casually drifts over the ground crew and the surroundings, not looking for anything in particular but trusting his instincts to report in if anything seems...hinky. He also takes a deep breath through his nose - probably ill-advised given the chemical smells, but Rhea's always telling him what he's missing not using his nose and he needs to get a "baseline" of the odors around the port anyway if he's gonna be able to tell new, potentially more interesting smells later.

"What would we do with control of a massive machine designed to take a square kilometer of whatever is in its path and turn it into pre-packed raw materials?" Hoim asks. "Well, there's the new Turai garrison that's been enforcing the strip-mining of Aikoro at beamer-point. And Olona's palace is very ugly."
