Chira utters a shrill of surprise and pain as she falls back onto the deck plating, her padded armor smoking slightly from the stun blast.
"CHIRA!" Wendi yells and runs into to kneel by her friend and check on her. As Chira sits up quickly and glares angrily at the droid, rest her paws on her matched blasters, Wendi lays a hand on Chira's shoulder,
"Calmly Chira...obviously the disabling of security doesn't extend to the personality of rude and racist droids..." she glances briefly at the offending droid then at Ari.

Ari replies calmly, doing her best to stifle a laugh, "Seems to me that the droid is accurate, in both aim and words. Chira is furry and is a miscreant. Jaycee isn't furniture. It's a mistake, and truly rude, to treat her that way. I did warn Chira not to touch anything without permission, and she agreed. And you, Wendi, are responsible for her behavior. You both failed to keep your assurances."

"Furry I'll grant you, 'miscreant' is the racist title I object to most. Many people assume that just because they've met one Chadra-fan they've met them all...she was simply curious and eager to check out the ships systems. I will restrain her from here..." Wendi rose and helped Chira to her feet, "Remember what Ari said about not touching anything until permission was given Chira?"

Chira stood silent for a moment, still glaring at the droid, then her shoulders slumped and she bowed her head in dejection, "Chira sorry...not touch again..."

Wendi smiled sadly and rubbed the little Chadra-fan's furry head again as they stepped back into the companionway. "Let's get on with the tour..."

Ari turns to face 3PX, "Threepee-ecks, please state the definition of 'miscreant'."

"Certainly, Mistress. Miscreant is a noun, defined in the Galactic Basic Dictionary as a person who behaves badly or in a way that breaks the law."

"And who sets law aboard a ship?"

"A ship's Captain does, per Imperial regulations, Mistress."

"And who is the Captain of this ship?"

"You are, Mistress."

"Thank you, Threepee-ecks," replies Ari. She then turns to give Wendi a very pointed look. "Doctor, I strongly suggest you learn the meaning of your words before you bandy them with me. You will also find that making assumptions about my motives and what I do and do not know is generally ill advised." Without waiting to see the doctor's reaction or giving her a chance to argue, Ari spins on her heels and heads out of the bridge and down some stairs on the starboard side to the lower deck.

Wendi looks after the departing Ari for a minute then shakes her head and follows after.
"Hopefully we won't have to be on this ship for any longer than we have to be Chira."

Chira frowned and briefly touched one of the walls, "Good Ship Wen-dai, much love."

"Couldn't tell by the Captain."

They both moved to catch up and continue the tour.

Ari points towards the bow of the ship, "In the forward compartment are the gunnery stations for the ship's heavy cannon batteries." She then points to a well-marked emergency hatch directly aft, "And that's the starboard escape pod. There's another just like it on the opposite side." Ari then walks around the corner and taps a control on the forward bulkhead. She points to her left, directly aft, "That's the forward cargo lift, and that," pointing to her right, "Is the personnel boarding ramp. Engineering is aft of the main hold, on the upper deck. That concludes the tour." Ari then turns to head back upstairs.

When Ari gets to the top of the stairs she points a finger at Chira, "Come." She heads back towards the bridge, enters, and moves to a few paces from the co-pilot's station. She says, "Artoo, take the sensor station." Turning to face Chira, Ari makes a "come here" gesture with her index finger.

Chira looks at Wendi who nods and smiles encouragingly, "Go ahead Chira."
Chira nods, eyes JC warily then shuffles to Ari and looks up at her. "Yes?"

"Please take the station. Do not power up the engines. Do not power up the weapons. Just look over the systems. Become familiar with the controls, the nav computer, and the droids. And also the torpedo targeting, launch, and guidance systems. If you have any questions, Jaycee can answer them, or you can contact me if she can't. Jaycee, this is Chira. She is the new chief pilot. This is not a reflection on your abilities. You will continue as co-pilot."

"As you wish, Mistress," replies the droid, in a resigned and not-quite-surly tone.

"Oh! Chira do!" Chira happily climbs up onto the copilot's chair and quickly begins checking through the controls and performing a basic pre-flight check, her face serious in contrast to her usual wide-eyed gaze. When the check is completed she looks up at Ari, "All good! Ready to fly any time Captain ma'am!"

Spoiler:
Pre-Flight Check: 3eP+1eA+1eD 4 successes, 2 advantage

"I'll leave you to get better acquainted ... with everything," say Ari, turning away from Chira before breaking out in a smile. This is going to be an interesting trip. Too bad they come as a packaged set. Ari heads aft towards her quarters.

Before Ari leaves Chira will pipe up, "Captain, Chira need to adjust controls and seating...not set for Chira-sized beings. Permission to adjust?"

Without turning, lest the little furry one see her grinning expression, Ari replies, "Make yourself comfortable. The R2s can adjust your seat if you need help with it."

"Chira can do!" she replies and promptly sets to work making adjustments.

Wendi smiles and heads out as well, "I'll be in our quarters if I'm needed for anything, which hopefully won't be until we get to our destination." She heads back to the guest quarters with her things and Chira's. Once there she deposits the bags then heads off to the cargo bay to see to the checking, distribution, and settling of the extra items.

Once Wendi returns to the cargo bay she finds a pair of J9 drones maneuvering a full-size bacta tank off of the aft cargo lift as Hass supervises. The hulking exploration droid remains in the exact same spot that Wendi saw it at earlier. Sitting between its legs is a dog-sized and canine-looking quadrupedal droid that wasn't there before. It eyes Wendi warily.

Spoiler:
Wendi likely fails to notice that there are three small remotes hovering just below the overhead, observing everything that is happening in the bay and relaying sound and images ... to Ari. There's a fourth one keeping an eye on Chira from the back of the bridge.

Wendi raises her eyebrows at the sight of the bacta tank, but waits until its settled into place before she goes to examine it. While waiting she taps her comm, "Captain, you did let the rest of your droids know Chira and I are supposed to be here right? I only ask because there's a hunting droid here that looks like it wants to eat me."

Ari laughs, "If Kay wanted to eat you we wouldn't be having this chat. You'd be screaming, and bleeding on my nice clean deck. Though you wouldn't be screaming very long if Eedee decided to step on you. Security has been informed that you are a guest. As long as you comport yourself as a guest you will have no trouble with ship's security. I do suggest politeness. They may not be organic, but they do have thoughts and feelings."

Wendi grins into the comm, "Who let droids have thoughts and feelings? What's the galaxy coming to? Next thing you know they'll want to come around for caf and complain about their exes! On another note, I thought we couldn't find a bacta tank? Did you rob a Hutt or something?" She walks over to examine the bacta tank critically, "How does it look Hass?"

"Caf is bad for droids. Promotes rust. As for the tank, Fuerza said she couldn't provide one, not that there are none available. I went looking and bought one. Using my share of the money you gave us."

Hass answers, "I will let you know when it is installed and ready to function."

The tank is maneuvered into the smaller aft cargo bay, which is in between the main bay and the engine room. Inside that bay is a CT-4 medical droid and a quintet of Mini-Med droids.

Wendi stays out of the way while the tank is installed, but turns to look at the CT-4. "Greetings, may I have your designation and function?"

Meanwhile on the bridge, Chira finishes adjusting the controls to her satisfaction then turns to look at JC.
"Hi! Chira, sorry for climbing on you, very excited by pretty ship! Chira can't wait to take out into space!"

The droid comes out of standby mode, "I am DeeCeetee-Four-GeeToo-Aurek. I am the primary medical specialist aboard the Cherenkov Blue. Do you require assistance?"

Not having been asked a question, Jaycee does not respond to Chira. The highly skilled and expensive droid is more than a bit miffed at being treated like furniture by one organic, insulted by another, and then demoted by her mistress.

Wendi shakes her head, "Not at this time thank you, I may require your assistance later when we reach our destination. You may return to standby mode for now." she coolly waits for the installation of the bacta tank to be completed.

Chira shrugs and goes back to looking out of the cockpit window while waiting for flight orders.

Excited to finally receive orders, Chira pilots the ship to a safe jump distance before entering hyperspace. The careful calculations conducted by the droids over the past few hours are able to shave nearly a day off of the jump. You exit hyperspace three days later in the Yag'Dhul system. The first leg of your journey complete.

Spoiler:
The next jump is considerably shorter and along a major route so it will just be an average jump and you get a boost die.

Taking time to ensure correct calculations the group remains in the system for two hours before jumping to hyperspace. A day later the ship exits hyperspace into a barren region of space at the intersection between the Corellian Trade Spine and Sanctuary Pipeline.
