CEC Kharon, Deck 2, Brig
IC Time: Post Holocaust Day #107
OOC Time: Mon Aug 03 16:41:07 2009


While the larger classes of the fleet might have two separate brigs, one for officers and one for enlisted, this would not be the case on the Kharon. Three cells are packed into this small room, each containing a toilet and bed. The bars provide no privacy, possibly as an incentive to the ship's crew to stay out of this room. Done in the same drab battleship gray that the rest of the ship is, there is only a single desk to occupy this room which faces the cells. Perhaps a bit oddly, this room is almost as strictly utilitarian as the Naval Offices.


The hatch opens, as it does now and then during the day. It's not quite rotation of the shift, and when Salazar steps into the brig, this time, the MP on duty straightens in his chair and converses briefly with the woman. The only thing different about her, which may take a moment to recognize, are the pins on her collar, which now show the rank of Ensign. A folder with the Colonial Seal can be seen on the front of it. In her other hand is a mug of coffee. She sets that down on the desk, just out of reach of the MP. A clear 'do not touch'. She turns, without grabbing a chair, and moves to stand in front of Leda's cell. There's a whisper of paper crinkling and pages turning. Salazar flips to a page, reads briefly, and waits for Leda to gather himself.

Castor takes a second to note all of the movement and so he stands to move to meet Salazar. For his part he moves with a purpose because hell if he knows what is going on. He then takes a second to adjust his crew cut as he looks back at Salazar because he isn't sure what in the hell is going on. He then takes a second to look at Damon's bunk and back to his because the last time someone got serious attention in here it belonged to Damon and not to Leda and for his part Castor is hoping this doesn't apply to him in case it means that he is a dead man.

Salazar flips the folder closed, after a moment, and glances up. "Your alibi," She drops her hands behind her back, folder clasped between them. "Give it to me from the top, Tinman." She watches the pilot with dark eyes. She gives him nothing to go on.

Castor looks at Salazar for a moment, "Well, I pulled a double shift, which is documented. Then after that I was around a group of pilots who can say exactly what I did because they were with me. Then a group of Marines found a bomb in my locker and I got dragged here. So my alibi is all of my logs from pulling doubles."

It may seem a little odd, her coming in here like this just to ask him that, because that is all she asks him. Surely this question has been answered before. "You were not, for any period of time, alone?"

"To my knowledge I was never alone." He says as he looks back at Salazar as if to say, 'Seriously" and yet his tone says, 'I'm doing my best to give you the truth as I know it.' He finally looks back at Salazar, "I would never harm a pilot willingly. This is the one thing that needs to be understood, even if it means my death."

The S2 turns. "Noted." Salazar heads back to the hatch, her foot falls audible on the deck. She retrieves her coffee along the way. "Are you suggesting there may be some reason you would not know you were alone, and had unwillingly planted an explosive device in the berthings?"

The S2 turns. "Noted." Salazar heads back to the hatch, her foot falls audible on the deck. She retrieves her coffee along the way. She pauses at the desk, and asks across the room, "Are you suggesting there may be some reason you would not know you were alone, and had unwillingly planted an explosive device in the berthings?"

Castor looks back at Salazar for a moment and then says, "Does this mean that the marines have a problem with keeping track of a lone pilot because the logs will prove what I did. As for if I was alone or not I would like to point at Case and Rebound who can prove I was with them before things went all crap up." He then looks back at Salazar it would seem the man is convinced of his innocence.

"I'm responding to your words, Lieutenant. If you'd like to get out of here anytime soon, I suggest you choose more candid phrasing, and then stick with it," The marine seems to have had enough of this particular interview, and she pulls open the hatch. She leaves Castor to his thoughts, Damon, and his MP guard.

Castor shouts, "You and I both know I didn't do this and so find the person who is walking free and causing hell."

All the answer the young pilot receives is the cold clang of the hatch as it shuts.
