"Sunfire to Away Team, do you read?" The voice of the Captain crackled into range as the ship neared the planet once again.

Dean gave Patin just enough of a nudge to hopefully make the Djinn clench their sphincters. "Hey look, they can learn." Reaching to tap his comm badge. "House to Sunfire. House to Team B."

Patin nodded in agreement then relaxed her stance if only a little. She gave Ronson a once over and commented on his appearance, "Have you always had that stripe of silver hair?" The effects of having ones life energy sucked from them could age a man apparently.

"What stripe of silver hair?" Ronson started frantically patting his head as though he could feel the different hair colour.

Patin grimaced, "It's nothing. I'm sure the good doctor can have you patched up in no time." As Ronson turned around towards the door, Patin was blinded as the lights reflected off of Ronson's new bald spot in the back of his head. Age would not be kind to this one.

"Commander House, this is the Captain. We read you loud and clear. What is your status, where is commander Savar?" The voice of the Captain echoed inside the stone walls of the castle.

"Sensors indicate Commander Savar and the rest of the team out just outside. We are ready to beam you up on your signal. We're negotiating a treaty with the creatures" the Captain explained.

"That's amusing, given that we pretty much just finished aggressive negotiations to get comms back up. Yes, Patin and I came to find Ronson and I had the rest of them head outside to try to contact the ship." Dean glanced over to Patin a moment, "The creatures are in a better mood to talk now."

"We are making some progress here as well. Are you ready to beam back or so you need more time?" The Captain's voice indicated she wasn't sure if there was two sets of negotiations going on.

Dean gave a bit of a shrug, mostly to himself, "I'm not sure. We're suppose to help, if we can, find a way they can live without killing people. We should probably all group up and not have sixty conversations at one time."

"I'm beaming you all back to the ship and releasing the creatures we had taken into custody. We have an agreement that should buy us some time to work out a more permanent solution. Standby to beam up" the Captain conveyed the highlights of the conversation she had just had with the

Kitiuas heard the conversation between the captain and Commander House. She looked at the “castle and tower” then to Commander Savar. Deep down she did not feel they would be able to accomplish a true détente with these non-corporeal entities, but it was up to the senior staff now to decide that.

Savar met Kit's unflinchingly. His face unreadable. Whatever his thoughts were on the creatures and reaching an agreement were known only to him.

Aurora didn’t say anything, all she could do was hope a solution would be found to the problem at hand.

The away team vanished in a plethora of blue sparkles, to rematerialise in the transporter room next to where th creatures were being held. Once they were safely on board, true to her word the Captain released the force field.

The creatures swirled around, remaining within the transporter pad for the first moment the exploding in a myriad of swirling colour. For an instant it seemed they were everywhere at once before swirling in enmasse around the Captain as though to test her resolve.

"I gave you my word, you have been released. Return to your world and we will try and find a solution to your food problems"

The creatures hue changed through various colours as they seemed to mull through their options.
