Ysalwen steps through the front door, looking lighter and less troubled than she has in weeks. Having your apprentice settled into a Tal-Vashoth mercenary team -- the Valo-Kas, as it happens -- will do that. Particularly given that they are newly formed, though taking in members of several different mercenary bands with a great deal of experience.

Meraad liked them, and James found very little to complain about with any of its members, so.

Ysalwen settles herself at a corner booth, pulling out her tablet-book and pulling up three holographic windows. One contains a complicated nuclear decay simulation, another has some sort of energetics equations on it, and the third is playing Die Hard. She's been told it's a quite interesting play, and so.

Liranan has settled underneath her chair, ready to take a nap while she works. He may come out when the movie's gunfire starts, or he might just roll his eyes and go back to sleep.

Hera glances back at Senator Jebel, still droning on. "I can get back to you later," she sighs, switching the hologram off.

Carefully, and maybe still a little hesitantly, Hera leans down, holding out her fingers for the dog to sniff. "Hi, Liranan."

Looking back up to Ysalwen, "My name's Hera."

"You seem to be pretty good at multitasking." If the three windows are any indication.

Hera doesn't look down again, but does move her fingers to scratch behind Liranan's ear.

Hera, for the moment, seems to be managing to stay not-knocked-over.

"I've had... some experience with that."

Still, all of three of those images looks like more than she'd want to try to follow, if she didn't need to.

"I didn't mean..."

All right, sometimes outrunning TIE Fighters or managing a difficult route isn't exactly comfortable, but -

"I just meant that I'm a pilot."

And being as a good a pilot as Hera requires a lot of multitasking.

It's not that it's untrue. But it really wasn't what Hera had thought of.

(And maybe, when it comes down to it - even those skills she did learn under pressure, she doesn't feel much regret for how she learned them.)

"'Flies between the stars' is one way to say it," she says, with a small smile. "Though we usually stick to planets."

"There's a lot you have to do at once," Hera agrees, straightening in her chair again.

"Have you... been in a ship before?"

"We've had space travel for thousands of years in my galaxy."

So it was a problem solved long before Hera's time.

That's... an awfully specific question.

"There are thousands of civilizations in my galaxy," she says, slowly. "They haven't all existed since the first species traveled into space, and some of the ones that existed back then don't now."

Hera takes a moment, trying to decide how to put that together. "It's not one line, through one civilization. But once the tech for hyperspace travel was shared, there's been no stopping it."

"I've heard a lot about it."

She smiles, and shakes her head. "But I've never stayed here long enough to look that far."

"And I'd guess you can actually read the books there," she says.

"But it doesn't sound like there's a way to fly the ships in the garage."

There are a lot of things to learn from a grounded ship, but Hera also can't help but feel that a ship she can't fly is about as useful as shoes for a Hutt.

"Maybe," Hera allows.

"But I'd still be a little worried about tearing this place apart."

With a small smile, "He seems very well-behaved."

She might be imagining how Chopper would treat the wait staff if he showed up here. It... might be for the best hat he hasn't.
