Lord Dream finds Leda, Reka, Rhui & Toshi Station gathered about a table with tons of paper and a few slide rules while Ender stares at a board crowded with figures and Valeda Kor sits at the end of the table "supervising" (with her feet up on the table). "PEOPLE ... OFFICER IN THE ROOM" says Lord Dream for the third or fourth time, but who is counting? "yeah... hi... what's the pe ratio of ;asfdpj to pawoeiup 098 in the event we take a non standard trajectory and incur a w09u jp time variation before the fourth critical bench mark?... Dream, here, help," Rhui hands him an extra slide rule. Lord Dream discovers the slide rule is a lot of fun. They ask him questions, he slides it around and then lets them know where he ends up. "Do you know how to use that?" asks Valeda Kor, pausing to look over her newly painted toes. Renfield does good work. "Sure" says Lord Dream making all the moving parts work. This isn't rocket science, you know. "OK," says Leda. "In order to achieve maximum redundancy payments and retire in complete opulent comfort we need to resell this pocket fluff to at least five clients between now and the first bench mark. Reka, you'll keep your eyes peeled for benches?" Reka demonstrates keeping her eyes peeled. "And Toshi, you'll get those engines purring like kittens getting their first baths?" "Sure sure," says Toshi with a grimace. "I may need to break it to make it work," he says making another turn on the rubicks cube he's working on. "Good good. Ender, you'll communicate all this to our second in command, Lord Dream?" "I'll have a memo tomorrow." "BINGO!" says Rhui looking at the mahjong pieces. The voice of Captain Disco can be heard clearly over the intercom: "Are our profits redundant enough for me to sign an iou to a Blkasfj merchant for some ... uh .... bottles?" "YES!" cry the doctor and first officer. "My slide rule proves it!" continues Dream, scraping the slide rule open and closed a few times in front of the communications grid. "Let's get frank" says Rhui to Reka. "OK," says Reka, going off to find and retrieve Frank. "I meant, let's be frank," says Rhui, following Reka back to the bridge/landry room.
