Computer: The Blinking gates are dead ahead. Proceed with caution.
Commander: Let's go in there
Janice Worse For Wear: Commander, detecting a vessel incoming. Appears to be a Police patrol ship.
+ Calsai Police Patrol appears on the viewscreen
Storm: Another one?
Calsai Patrol Ship #2: Good evening people, what are you doing in the blinking gates? You do not have good enough shielding to remain in the radiation cloud for long. Proceed with caution and stay within the gates away from the dense part of the clouds and you should arrive in one piece.
Commander: Thanks, will do.
Proceed to blinking gate #2 Go back the way you came Head int the dense radiation clouds
Janice Worse For Wear: Detecting another patrol Ship. Its the same type as before.
Storm: Another one, that is unusual. We've only just barely reached Gate #2 !
Calsai Patrol Ship #3: Welcome, proceed carefully though to the next gate. we will be monitoring your progress from here.
Go to the next blinking gate. Go back the way you came Head off into the dense Radioactive clouds.
Janice Worse For Wear; Same thing again Commander.
Storm: What is going on here, are the police patrol ships in this area lined up like a assembly line or something?
Janice Worse For Wear: Due to the radioactive interference going on between the blinking gates with the properties of the Nebula's clouds, we are unable to detected any further patrol ships ahead with these current scanners we have.
Storm: Oh now convenient. Great, well Commander, we nee to upgrade the scanner to get a more better scan of the area, then at least we will know what is ahead of us.
Commander: Proceed to the next gate.
Calsai Patrol Ship #4: Good evening people, we detected you coming through the blinking gates.
Storm: Yeah we know, proceed with caution.
Calsai Patrol Ship #4: Oh, so you already know the script. Take care then and don't wander too far away from the blinking gates.
Commander: That's four patrol ships now. This is weird finding them at every gate we stop at.
Herc Commander: It might be a highly secure area.
Head to next Blinking Gate Go back the way you came Go into the dense Radioactive Clouds
Janice Worse For Wear: Sorry Commander to bother you again but its the same ship approaching.
Storm: Something weird is going on here. Every single stop has the same ship. Why is that?
Commander: Dunno, I will ask them.
Calsai Patrol Ship #5: Good evening People, what are you doing in our space?
Commander: Why do you have a patrol ship at every blinking light?
Calsai Patrol Ship #5: Its to help guide the travelers safely through the blinking lights
Commander: This makes no sense. You've already got the blinking gates to guide them.
Calsai Patrol Ship #5: Part of our law states that all blinking gates must have a patrol ship for safe escort.
Storm: Ok this is weird.
T6unit: Makes no sense to me, but is a terrible waste of ship resources.
Herc Commander: The droid is right, it is a waste of resources.
Calsai Patrol Ship #5: Are you making fun of our laws here?
Commander: No we don't understand why you want all these extra ships
Calsai Patrol Ship #5; Oh that's a council issue, you will have to go down to the homeworld once you get to the end of the blinking lights barrier and see them. I cannot help you any further. it maybe a stupid system but the council makes all the decisions.
Commander: I see, thank you for that information.
Calsai Patrol Ship #5: You're welcome. Just obey our laws and the radiation cloud won't claim you.
Herc Commander: Rather friendly guy, isn't he.
Storm: Makes no sense to me to want patrol ships to escort you from one blinking light post to the next were not babies we can take care of ourselves.
Commander: Maybe its their way of hospitality. We should just obey their protocols and not cause any trouble.
Storm: Sigh, ok Commander.
Computer: Calsarians, are known to always have a patrol ship at every single post. This is their custom. They like to hold your hand all the way. Deal with it.
Herc Commander: Goodness me we're not babies. We can get to each post on our own.
Computer: The Calsarians are a hopelessly co-dependent sort of race. When it comes to their hospitality.you have to accept their nanny hospitality to avoid offending them.
Commander: Oh no, well I guess we have to be escorted to every single post. Just how many of these posts are there before we get to the main homeworld, I can see the planet from here so it can't be too many more of these posts.
Computer: There are approximately 8 more posts
Storm: Arrrghh. I wish you hadn't said that.
Computer: Be glad its not the Gori System which has 100 buoys. They are more co-dependent than the Calsaris.they will fine you if you fail to be co-dependent. They like good co-dependency.
Commander: Ok, we get the point.
Proceed through the next blinking gate Go back the way you came
Herc Commander: If we ever come across a world where everybody looks like storm, I will quit this mission and head back to my ship.
Storm: Yer wouldn't. We haven't found such a planet like that yet. I would look forward to to it.
Loana: To have everybody on a planet looking like you Storm would be a public relations disaster. Not to mention cause alot of confusion and probably turn worlds into anarchy.
Computer: You never know Commander, there might be a world out there with Storm look alike s Wannabes. The possibility is there. Maybe they are trapped on the planet with nowhere to go.
Herc Commander: Urggh, To be marooned on a planet like that would be true purgatory.
Calsai Patrol Ship #6: Good evening people how are you. I'm here to escort you to the next blinking gate.
Commander: Great, well that's 14 more gates left to go.
Calsai Patrol Ship #6 When you get through all the gates you can land on our homeworld. There's an outpost if you need to upgrade your ship or shields. I took a scan and your shielding is no way adequate for entering into the red radiation cloud where our homeworld is located.
Commander: Yes we are aware of that.
Head to next blinking gate Ask some more questions of Patrol Ship Go back the way you came
Storm: Well here we are at the next blinking gate and sure enough a patrol ship is waiting there like usual.
Commander: I still think its a waste of ship resources.
Calsai Patrol Ship #7: Good evening, welcome to the Calsai System. Oh dear you will have to stop off at the Outpost to upgrade your shields. It is just a short distance ahead.
Computer: Warning shields are dropping. 10000 Units remaining.
Storm: Uh oh, the shields units are dropping Commander.
Calsai Patrol Ship #7 That is normal because you are getting nearer to the Red Radiation cloud. So your shields will drop down as you proceed to each blinkingate from now on escorting you to the next gate.
Skinar: There's really no need for them to hold our hand like this commander. Its embarrassing.
Commander: Just proceed forward Skinar
Head to next Blinkingate Go back the way you came
Computer: WARNING: Shields are down to 9000 units.
Storm: uh oh this could be an issue. The shielding is going down really fast now.
Commander: Proceed forward to the next gate.
Calsai Patrol Ship #8: Good evening, I will escort you to the next gate
Go to the next gate Go back the way you came
Computer: WARNING: Shielding is down to 6000 units and dropping
Commander: Yikes, that's a 3000 unit drop from the last gate. Hmm I'm starting to get a little concerned now.
Calsai Patrol Ship #9: You need to head towards the Outpost, its just two more gates ahead. Your shields will be very low once you get to the outpost but should just be enough to hold to stop them from collapsing on you entirely.
Commander: Great, well show us the way then.
Head towards Blinking Gate 10 Go back
Computer: Waning Shields down to 2000 units.
Storm: One more gate and we should just make it. I hope.
Computer: Let's hope your patrol friend is right. The shields are almost down and out.
Head to Last Blinking Gate 11 Go back the way you came
Computer; Warning 5 units remaining left on the shields.
Storm: 5 Units left you must be joking.
Commander: 5 Units is better than no shield at all Storm.
Computer: WARNING: If the units drop below 1 the shields will all collapse.
T6unit: Approximately 1.001 units to be exact. You always seem to be off your calculations by 001 of a percent. That is a travesty for one who calls themselves the superior A.I computer. You are not perfect, you are defective and malfunctioning.
Computer: Its close enough. I am not defective. I am functioning perfectly. I don't round off the 001 of the percent. It doesn't matter anyway, the shields will all collapse if it drops below the 1 percent left that is remaining.
T6unit: In this you are accurate. The shields are about to collapse.
Herc Commander: We don't need to hear that right now Droid.
Head towards Calsai Ship Outpost Go back
Computer: WARNING Shields are down to 1 unit remaining. CRITICAL the shields will collapse after 10 minutes if the shields do not drop down any lower
Herc Commander: Arrghh, it might take us longer than 10 minutes to for this outpost to upgrade our shielding.
William Smith: Only 1 unit remaining. Its really cutting it a bit fine isn't it.
Cronis: A little too fine if you ask me. Commander, do you think this is wise to continue on.
