Kanya wakes up in an unfamiliar room. "That's odd. I thought I was following Cassandra onto the Aegis. And then, my memory is a blank."
"Ah, you're awake." An unfamiliar voice.
"Where am I?"
"You're in the infirmary on the Aegis. Apparently, you just collapsed on the floor after entering the Aegis. One of the crew members found you lying on the floor. We don't know what happened, and your files don't show any relevant medical history."
"I don't even know how I got on the ship."
"Either way, you'll be causing quite a fuss in the administration of the ship. Someone in security is going to get it for having the system allow in unauthorised personnel. Anyway, you've been given temporary clearance for the time being."
"For one, you just collapsed for no apparent reason. Another thing is that we want to do some study on you. We want to keep you in observation for about a month. After that, you can be on your way and board the Kirkor when we rendezvous with it in about a month."
"Becoming a lab rat, huh."
"We are for the most part, a TRi research ship. We aren't like the Kirkor, which is a military ship. You won't need to perform any military duties while you are onboard, but it is highly suggested you join the ordinary pilots during practice sessions so that you won't be too rusty when you get on the Kirkor."
Meanwhile, Erse had heard of the intrusion. She was already going through several screens of code and monitoring data in the security room.
"No visible difference in any of the information. This is going just as planned." Erse said to herself.
Pandora is actually behind her. "We have more important things to do now than monitor his progress. He'll be on the ship until we meet the Kirkor anyway."
