    Tom and Trent walked in and watched the Romans help Gena and the other women to their seats. Out of the corner of Tom's eye he saw Trent tense up as the younger roman helped Martha. "Cool it." Tom whispered. When Oren took his seat Tom and Trent remained standing. "Well Colonel where do you want me to begin?" Tom asked.

      Jaime paused outside the double doors of the Mess Hall, frowning not only at the fact that they were closed but at the pair of SFs stationed outside. One of them spotted her and stepped forward slightly.

      "Sorry ma'am," he said apologetically. "Mess is closed to the base for a bit. Shouldn't be too long, but we really don't have an ETA on reopening."

      Jaime sighed. "Thanks." She turned and headed back to the elevators, deciding she'd just wait it out. It wasn't as if she didn't have anything to do- she still had the final rearranging of her new furniture and decor.

      Lost in her thoughts, she headed back to her Quarters.

        Sharp pulled a chair out and sat down backwards on it, leaning his arms on the seat back. "Begin at the beginning, and go on till you come to the end: then stop."

          Gaius smiled to himself and made the same offer to the adult ladies. With a look, he brought two of his Legionaires over to help. The other two stood out in the hall on either side of the doorway to stop anyone from entering.

          Martha smiled politely as one of the Romans pulled out a chair for her. "Thanks." she told him shyly. She had noticed that the young man had been watching her ever since her people had met the Romans. She hadn't thought anything about it, but she had thought that he was very good looking, and now he was proving just how gentlemanly he could be. She guessed that was the way that he had been raised. There was no way that he would think that she was pretty, and besides she really hadn't started to like boys in that way yet.

          "I could use one of those sandwiches over there." Martha admited as she eyed the food on the nearby table at the young man's offer.

            "Oh, and please sit if you would like." He added as a few men remained standing.

              "I'd rather stand sir If that is ok." Tom said thinking about exactly where to start. Trent though decided to take a seat towards the end of the table. "Well I guess the best place to start is Ara." Tom then started to pace in front of the group. "The planet of Ara was at the end of our artistic period as most of the people were calling it. We were advancing in our art, music, and our medical and aero sciences were at their peaks. Our planet is made up of 4 continents and two polar ice caps. The continents were Cera, Methnar, Youric, and Teron. Each one is a seperate country with a few battles but only one world war in the last 300 years. The stargate was discovered 30 years ago after which the leaders of the countries got togeather and set up the AUC, the Ara Unification Council. It took 9 years for all the countries to agree to a single Govermental council with one repersentative from each country but each country was basicly allowed to run its own afairs. It was another 4 eyars before our planet was militaryily unified. Along with unifiying our planet we also gained much medical technology. But we quickly learned that not all the galaxy was as good as it seemed. We had many run-ins with a very advanced race called the goa'uld. That is what pushed our people militarily. 10 years after the unification of our planet's military we had our first space fighter, the FA-92." Tom stopped pacing and then reached down in his boot and pulled out a data disk. "I almost forgot I have the designs for that particular model and trent..." Tom continued looking at the kid.

              "Oh yes I have pictures." Trent said taking them out of a hidden pocket inside his jacket. and passing them around the table.
              Spoiler:





              "The ship you see in the backround was the first ship designed to be able to launch and recal fighters incase of a plantary attack code-named, Final. This ship was to be able to fight on its own for almost 4 years if it had to. We built 3 more like it in the next 5 years along with A total of 80 fighters, 20 for each ship." Tom stopped here, his girlfriend at the time had been a pilot on the ship Final.

                Micon grinned, his white teeth almost bisecting his dark skinned face, "Absolutely. I'll be right back"
                The young man joined the others near the table. He reached past the older soldiers, snatching half sandwiches from all four varieties and loading another plate with what appeared to be fresh fruit or vegetables. Carrying both plates balanced on his palms, and laid them on the table in front of Martha.
                Micon hurried around to the other side of the table, pulled out the chair opposite the Aran girl and plopped down. He was about to jump up again to offer something to drink but,Tom, their leader had started to speak.
                Instead, he leaned over and whispered, "Drink?"

                  [Martha Khones]

                  Martha leaned tiredly back in her chair as the young Roman boy left to retrieve the sandwich she had requested. Normally, she would have waited until one of the adults offered to get her something to eat, but in this case, they were probably to busy to notice her rudeness. After all, they were guests on this planet. Normally, Martha would have been the last one to request food or anything else before it was offered to her, but lately she had been feeling slightly on the rebellious side. Surely it was ok to eat one sandwich.

                  Martha was shocked when the Roman boy returned and sat two plates in front of her. It was a lot more food than she thought she would be able to eat, and was shocked that no one had chastised him for being greedy. She looked catiously over at the Aran women out of the corner of her eye, and noticed that one of them was frowning at the interaction between herself and the Roman. She tried to look as innocent as possible, but knew that she would hear about the encounter later. "Thank you." She told the young gentleman after a brief hesitation.

                  She picked one of the sandwich halves and took a small bite. The meat that was used in the sandwich was similar to the type they had on Ara, but the cheese was unlike anything she had ever tasted before. She wasn't sure if she liked it at first so took a larger bite before breaking into a large smile. It was delicious. She wondered who had prepared the sandwiches since the man named Col. Sharp had stayed in the infirmary with the group the entire time. She made a mental note to find him later and compliment him on the excellent food.

                  She watched with fascination as a few words were exchanged between the adults before Tom began the story of Ara. The offer of something to drink registered with Martha after a few seconds delay, she had barely even noticed that the boy had sat across from her. She wished that it was Trent that had been paying this much attention to her and not a stranger. "Water would be nice." She admitted, knowing that the simple drink would be an easy enough request, but part of her felt a little guilty about putting the young to so much work. She was old enough to do things like this for herself, if she had known where anything was kept. The people on this planet were very strange to her, and she wasn't comfortable around them yet.

                  "What's your name? Mine's Martha." She whispered across the table to the Roman boy. Knowing someone's name should always be the first question you ask someone, but then you had to make a point of remembering it too.

                    "Dexius Micon," he whispered back, "call me Micon." He quietly got up and fetched a pitcher sitting at the end of the food table. A quick sniff proved that it, indeed, was water. He picked up a few cups as well.
                    Checking to make sure that no one was paying attention to his moving about, he returned to the table and deposited the pitcher and cups within Martha's reach, "For you and the young ones."

                      [Martha Khones]

                      Again, Martha was suprised at the items that Micon had brought to the table. She smiled in appreciation and mouthed another thank you in response. Pouring herself a small cup of water, she allowed one of the adults to pour the cups for the younger children, Mira and Oren.

                      Taking a bite of one of the fruits that Micon had brought her, she was again impressed at the delectableness of this planet's food. She raised a questioning eyebrow in the boy's direction as if to ask what the food was called. On Ana, the only fruits had been melons, but this was unlike any melon she had ever tasted before. It was sweet, but not too sweet, she mused as she took another bite of the red teardrop shaped fuit. It seemed to have seeds on the outside coating, but oddly enough the seeds were edible.

                      Martha knew that it was rude to whisper while adults were talking but she was enjoying Micon's company enough to disregard the rules. Besides, this part of the conversation didn't concern her and she really didn't have to pay attention to it. She really wasn't even whispering, just using facial expressions to convey what she was thinking to the young man across the table. But just the same, she watched the adults out of the corner of her eye for any sign that she was going to be in trouble for the slight misbehavior.

                        Sharp's eyes widened at the mention of space craft and eagerly accepted the photos. Looking threw them he saw a fighter similar to ones they used to have on Earth, and a close up of a woman inside of the craft. Deciding to ask about the woman later Sharp asked about what was actually important.

                        "There wouldn't happen to be any of these ships left, would there?" However, Sharp realized how silly his question was directly after asking it. Do you really think these were a match for Hera? But a little hope still remained.

                          Micon looked up to see the Tribune staring at him. He nodded quickly at the silent order. Pinching his lips shut, he thought rebeliously, This is a big room, why are we all stuck here together? They could have put the youngsters in one corner and the adults in another. He hoped that someone would notice the littler ones getting restless and move them all.

                          (( I thought the whole point of taking over the Mess was to have room for children to be able to do something. For players to interact. Otherwise, you could have crammed everyone into the Briefing room. ))

                            "Actualy there is a chance that there are a few left. The facilities for building them were built in the deepest caves on Ara. We actualy didn't know how deep they were until someone acutaly went down them because of a element that shielded the caverns. We had no way of knowing weather the goa'uld would be able to sense them but we took a chance. the facility was able to build 10 at a time and was in the process of building the next fleet." Tom said when addressed about the probability of their being any of the FA-92s left.

                              (Sorry Jyn- I realized this, didn't have time to add it in the last post :/)

                              Sharp listened to what Jeff was saying, but was distracted by whispers. Glancing over, he saw the children chatting. Oh, of course! I should let them go eat.. He thought, however, he let Jeff finish what he was saying.

                              Holding a finger up to Jeff to let him know that a response was coming, he turned to the kids.

                              "How rude of me. You guys don't have to sit here with us; feel free to go eat and play around at another table...but not too loud."
                              He smiled at the kids and turned back to Jeff.

                              "An underground factory eh?" He let out a breath. This was another mission- for another time. There was no way they could take Hera with a few F-302s.
                              "Well, there is nothing we can really do right now," He said, putting on a slightly sad expression, then changing the subject.
                              "So there was a battle then?"

                                At Col. Sharp's words, Martha looked tentatively over at the Aran women that were seated at the other end of the table. At a small nod and hard glare of warning from the older of the two women, Martha smiled brightly, and picked up her food plate and water glass and quietly made her way to a table at the other end of the mess hall. She placed the items on the table and then returned to the main table where all the adults were seated at a loud giggle from Mira. "I'll look out for her," she whispered the promise to the adults and gently grasped Mira's small hand to lead her to the table at the other end of the vast room.

                                "Now we have to be quiet so the adults can talk. But they have some really good food that we can eat in the mean time." She instructed the toddler. Mira just giggled and reached for some of the food off of Martha's plate. The older girl helped the younger one to eat one of the sandwich halves without making a mess.
