Bemusing Situation

Suddenly a man resembling the Captain appeared made out of light. He had a shiny "H" on his forehead as he saluted everyone.

Captain: Greetings crew this is your very talented Captain. Captain Holden Teabagg at your service. At ease crew.

Then the Captain began to walk in a circle with a crazed look in his eye as he rambled on while pointing to the ceiling.

Captain: We shall fight in France, we shall fight on the seas and oceans, we shall fight with growing confidence and growing strength in the air, we shall defend our Island, whatever the cost may be, we shall fight on the beaches, we shall fight on the landing grounds, we shall fight in the fields and in the streets, we shall fight in the hills; we shall never surrender.

Evelina: Looks like the Captain is off his rocker. Be a dear and turn him off Jaxx.

Jaxx: Huh? Turn off the Captain?

Maxx: Authuuuuuuurization appppppproved.

Captain: Hey wait....

The Captain vanished and a small device for holograms called a Light Bug dropped on the floor.

Evelina: What is that?

Bark: Its a Light Bug. We use them to bring back dead crew members in the form of a hologram.

Jaxx: What now Evebabe?

Bark: Maybe the pilot?

Evelina: Great idea. Jaxx tell Maxx to activate the pilot.

Jaxx: Activate the pilot? Really?

Maxx: Authorization apppppppppppproved.

Suddenly First Console Officer Honey Rider appeared where the Light Bug was as it hovered inside her.

Honey: Hello, hello, hello chaps what's going on?

Lark watched all of this a little bemused and slightly entertained. The Captain seemed like he had lost his mind. The pilot seemed ok but she wondered how other people might emerge from such a state or one person in particular.

She had pieced together that she might need Jaxx help, whatever he was. Lark never could keep those kind of things straight too many alterations to worry about it.

"Hey," she said sweetly but with a sense of urgency. "Do you think you could activate my sister?"

Really, it had never crossed her mind that she'd just might be told no and Meadow wouldn't be activated at all. Lark felt lost without her twin really having no idea what to do. After all Meadow was smarter than her and was supposed to make all the decisions. Or that's what Meadow had always told her.
