Zhenya and Leon are invited to the Captain's Table to dine, for a couple hours before jump to 107 Piscis. The Vegan Empress is a utilitarian craft, built during wartime for supply duties, as such the dinner is not on fine china with golden chargers, such as one would find on an in system liner around Sol, where star upon star, the clusters build like berries on a tree until who knows what awaits in the unexplored systems. The offer of High Passage here mostly means to have some sort of attention from the steward, rather than a servo-robot handing out steaming plates of printed protein and fiber; plain fare.

Fang is there to serve, the Captain, George Hall, a man looking to be in his mid to late forties; Senior Engineer Simon Fujii, a man in his late thirties; Senior Gunner Thaddaeus Satō, looking to be mid-thirties; and Doctor Freja Hernández, a woman in her mid-forties. Two other passengers are here to dine as well, Kana Bauer, a woman in her mid-forties, and John Ma, a thirty something man.

The fare for tonight is fresh salad and fruits, decent wine, followed by rice, asparagus, a printed turkey breast (otherwise indistinguishable from the real thing), angel hair pasta with a garlic Florentine sauce, and the ever traditional tilapia, a spacer holdover from the days when spacecraft had rotating rings for artificial gravity, and a bactry with fish and algae to recycle waste.

Zhenya listens to Leon's report with close attention, and tells him what she has discovered.

"Shall we see if our fellow High passengers are our target? I hope so, they disembark at our next stop."


A last check of the disguise, and Zhenya leads Leon to dinner, using the cane for support of a weak left ankle.

"Do you want to keep playing the zhestkiy futlyar telokhranitel', ah, tough guy servant? It might work. Zhenya would not be so obvious, or cautious."

Leon heads off with Zhenya for dinner at the captains table. In answer to her question he will just remain silent but vigilant.

Chir brings food to the bridge, she is in a somber mood, though.

Meanwhile back on the Vegan Empress Zhenya and Leon are seated at a circular table, to the Captain's right, to the left is who appears to be the woman who shot Zhenya with a Tranq, she looks older here than she did back on Reval Highport, her companion also looks remarkably similar. Other officers are seated around the table, as Fang serves drinks, and asks for any special orders or if anyone has allergies.

Zhenya is bright and chatty over dinner, making small talk about the the ship's itinerary, trying to elicit amusing anecdotes about the people and places along the way and joking about the ruffians with their broken-down ship that we are leaving behind in a slightly German-inflected accent.

There is no hint Zhenya has recognised anyone.

Has anyone shown signs they recognise Zhenya?

Bauer and Ma show no sign of recognizing Zhenya or Leon, they might never have seen Leon before. If queried about their work, they will casually mention they are in business, human resources. The rest of the crew will talk about various things, with a main talk of Fermi's "rule" over the 107 Piscis system, and the strangeness of the Fermians, and their squire-ocracy, ruled by an oligarchy of landed gentry, living on estates that are maintained by robots (think sort of the Spacer Worlds in Asimov's Caves of Steel).

Leon was a new hire, and Zhenya was alone, hopefully he wasn't in the file.

"Human resources? It does not sound as though 107 Piscis, is the world for you, unless it is a holiday. I think it would be fascinating to see. Perhaps a day trip, if we have time Captain?"
