[14:24] DR. Tourny Prime (dsqtourny): (Hi!)
[14:25] DR. Tourny Prime (dsqtourny): (*Waves to the Camera*)
[14:25] DR. Tourny Prime (dsqtourny): (Ok, I'm going to RPG this, because I don't feel like writing it out somewhere where Kris will rate it a U article.)
[14:27] Narrator (dsqtourny): Our story begins with DoctoR Tourny Prime, Captain of the Tournan Hive Ship Mark II, sitting in his usual seat on the main deck.
[14:28] DR. Tourny Prime (dsqtourny): *reads Sae's new report regarding his study of the Hive Drones*
[14:30] DR. Tourny Prime (dsqtourny): *Of late, he has found that they really are simple drones, though something appears to be... missing, for lack of a better description*
[14:30] DR. Tourny Prime (dsqtourny): It's like they have no capacity to grow as people...
[14:31] DR. Tourny Prime (dsqtourny): Cmdr: They -are- drones, Captain.
[14:31] DR. Tourny Prime (dsqtourny): Yes, but that doesn't mean they can't -grow-.
[14:32] DR. Tourny Prime (dsqtourny): I don't mean in the emotional sense-- they literally learn nothing.
[14:32] DR. Tourny Prime (dsqtourny): Cmdr: ?
[14:32] DR. Tourny Prime (dsqtourny): Ok, let me try to explain...
[14:34] DR. Tourny Prime (dsqtourny): Remember when we talked with the Dauntless and brought a Lysosome Drone along?
[14:34] DR. Tourny Prime (dsqtourny): Cmdr: Yes, Captain.
[14:34] DR. Tourny Prime (dsqtourny): Well, while we were there, it literally did nothing.
[14:34] DR. Tourny Prime (dsqtourny): Well, it had a glass of water towards the end.
[14:36] DR. Tourny Prime (dsqtourny): But that's the thing:
[14:36] DR. Tourny Prime (dsqtourny): Over the course of the -entire- meeting, all it learned was how to drink from a glass.
[14:36] DR. Tourny Prime (dsqtourny): Cmdr: Well, that's something, isn't it?
[14:37] DR. Tourny Prime (dsqtourny): Yeah, I dunno...
[14:37] DR. Tourny Prime (dsqtourny): We -know- they're telepathic, right?
[14:40] DR. Tourny Prime (dsqtourny): Cmdr: We're fairly certain.
[14:40] DR. Tourny Prime (dsqtourny): ... -You're- telepathic.
[14:41] DR. Tourny Prime (dsqtourny): Cmdr: Yes, but all I can tell is that there's some kind of hive mind facilitated by the Hive itself.
[14:41] DR. Tourny Prime (dsqtourny): ...You mean it could be something other than telepathy.
[14:41] DR. Tourny Prime (dsqtourny): Cmdr: Not other than telepathy, but it might not be the same kind I use.
[14:42] DR. Tourny Prime (dsqtourny): Cmdr: We already know the Servos Drones communicate with the crew via electric pulses transmitted by touch.
[14:42] DR. Tourny Prime (dsqtourny): Cmdr: Maybe all the drones require touch in order to communicate with the Hive.
[14:42] DR. Tourny Prime (dsqtourny): That doesn't make sense.
[14:43] DR. Tourny Prime (dsqtourny): I mean, they would make lousy foot soldiers if that was the case.
[14:43] DR. Tourny Prime (dsqtourny): Cmdr: Indeed. Have you ever tried organizing them outside of the Hive?
[14:44] DR. Tourny Prime (dsqtourny): Not really...
[14:44] DR. Tourny Prime (dsqtourny): Cmdr: Perhaps you should.
[14:44] DR. Tourny Prime (dsqtourny): Hmm
[14:44] DR. Tourny Prime (dsqtourny): Yes.
[14:44] DR. Tourny Prime (dsqtourny): Alright.
[14:45] DR. Tourny Prime (dsqtourny): Take us to Aharon. We don't want to make a fuss on the homeworld.
[14:45] DR. Tourny Prime (dsqtourny): Cmdr: Right away.
[14:46] DR. Tourny Prime (dsqtourny): *the Hive's Tetustemusdemuguff Drive activates*
[14:46] DR. Tourny Prime (dsqtourny): *and it is on its way*
[15:20] DR. Tourny Prime (dsqtourny): *meanwhile, the Hive has arrived at Aharon*
[15:20] DR. Tourny Prime (dsqtourny): *and landed*
[15:21] DR. Tourny Prime (dsqtourny): *Tourny has led a company of drones, with some difficulty, out onto a large field, beneath the

Tourny: Alright, men!

*the drones just stare at him blankly*

Tourny: ... Your task is to move that sack of rocks over to that x. *points to each in turn*

Tourny: Any questions?


Tourny: Very well. Begin! *steps aside*

*the Drones stand around uncomfortably, some of them looking up at the belly of the Hive*

*others begin heading towards the foot, through which they might board*

Tourny: Raise the foot.

Cmdr: Yes, Captain.

*the foot is raised*

*the Drones appear confused and regroup in the original location*

*eventually they emit a forlorn screech and some shuttles come down from the Hive to carry them up to the hangar*

*the sack is untouched*

Tourny: *facepalm*
