*Arik: *You mean like last time, when they brought back a "snipe" that turned out to be a dormant Shadow. My kid had nightmares for a month.
*Theren: *So they should know what a dormant shadow looks likes now, right?
*Arik: *I wouldn't count on it.
*Theren: *I don't have time to deal with this. We still need energy and now I have to worry about the Ashtar who's going to come looking for this ship.
*Arik: *I put together the list of everything we have left to trade. Theren, It's not enough.
