She had said something about a cat... that could be interesting as and natural preditors on the world would need to be studied and ways the colonist could protect themselves. "well, i'll just talk to her in the morning, when she's more coherent. Meanwhile let me contact the mining crew." And he opened up a comm to them. "Report." "well sir we've gotten though the top soil but we might be having a bit of a problem. See the bedrock underneth seems to be harder than usuall. We can get though it, but it will take longer than expected." "How long?" "Well if we work far into the night, which is about a couple hours off captian, we shou;ld be able to have it in 6 hours." "Damn, thats cutting it close. Tech, how long will it take you to install this material and install the router?" "About an hour captian." "Good good, we should be fine then. Continue digging Major." "Yes sir." Ok, more to come later.
