((USS Narenda - Office)) ::Ship to station right back into another ship. That seemed to be the life of Solek of Vulcan. While primarily stationed on Ops, the diplomat found work scattered about and went with ease to put his skill to good use. He had been a little very, very little - surprised to see a request f= rom the head of intelligence. Not that his work didn't sometimes overlap wi= th theirs. It was just uncommon enough to peak his curiosity. He'd had enough time to chance into the purple Starfleet uniform an= d catch the Narenda before it disembarked. The senior staff had been immersed in a meeting early on, so quenching his curiosity would have to wait. It was good he was good about waiting. But just as soon as he heard the meeting was over, he found himself walking quickly to meet up with Aitas. She had been the one to personally request his presence on this mission, it fairly stood to reason she had an idea of what was happening. More importantly - what they needed from him.:: Aitas: Commander, thank you for coming. ::He bowed his head slightly, those nearly blackened eyes kept watch of her. The Vulcan sought out to detect body language or expression that might give way to well anything. But namely, the threat level he suspec= ted they faced. :: Solek: Lady Aitas. ::he slid into the seat, one leg crossed over the other neatly.:: Aitas: How are your Klingon dialects? We may be dealing with some more isolated groups on this mission, and I'd rather not trust such merely to the universal translator. ::He took a steady breath in, then held it for a moment. Klingons. Their language was more guttural, sharp sounds and syllables. It always made his throat scratchy - right there in the back.:: Solek: I would say fair. ::his eyes played a bit.:: I am confident I won=E2= =80=99t start any wars. Aitas: I've put together a summary on the situation for you, but if you have any other questions better to ask them now. I fear things won't stay quiet for long. ::He didn't give much of an acknowledgment. His focus on what seeme= d a highly dangerous, if not touchy, situation. Yes. He was still confidence in his abilities. But he wondered how much good it would do. Klingon's= were not easily persuaded.:: Solek: ::now he nodded.:: Are we engaging the Klingon's in talks? ::Surely he would have heard something about it long before now. And as he understood, they'd been on good terms for a long while.:: Aitas: ? ::The Vulcan nodded as he listened. His unblinking eyes gave her his full attention. He didn't believe in filler words like =E2=80=98I see=E2= =80=99 or =E2=80=98indeed' or =E2=80=98fascinating' - am apparent culture favorite. So he listene= d and spoke only once he had something to add or ask.:: Aitas: ? ::He took the offered report to browse through briefly. It would be rude to read while be spoken too. But he started to get the bigger picture. The threat level of it all.:: Solek: We should include subservient languages as well, as they will be commonly spoken within the Empire. ::meaning less obvious, too.:: Aitas: ? Solek: From a diplomatic standpoint - how much is being done to limit this from going public? ::If a Klingon enemy found out about this in detail, it would plunge them into a deadly war. And as allies to the Klingon's:: Aitas: ? Solek: Yes, at times that truth is quite a burden. ::gossip traveled faster than most anything.:: Aitas?
