    Loves paused for a second. It was one thing that he felt notably less nervous around the Sthyss. But whereas he was uninterested in Authority protocol and proceedings, she seemed completely unaware. Finally, he decided to just be blunt.

    "He's asking Griklik to prove who he is," he whispered in response. "Moophat-head is being cautious before giving our dear leader any authority or classified info."

    It would normally be considered disrespectful to refer to the agent by the fungus that his head resembled, but Loves wasn't terribly concerned with such in their present situation. The diminutive alien shrugged.

    "Of course, if Griklik has no proof, we might be tied up in this bit for awhile."

    Ashani's head-tendrils wriggle cordially as she listens to the little bite-sized mammal's response. It seems like the weird-talking alien actually got something across.

    She whispers back a reply, "I dunno, Griklik being his usual charming self should be proof enough."

    Overseer Griklik

    The beholder is visibly glad to be recognised for who he is. "Lieutenant Sprog, it is splendid that you are alive. Where is your gravity dampener?" One of his eye stalks turn to Black. "It needs a gravity dampener" he adds. "While your adherence to the protocol is commendable, you should be able to tell I'm overseer Griklik without the need of my code. But this is as far from normal situations as it could get. The code is 05021985." Telekineticaly, Griklik undid his sash and presented it in front of the alien. "The overseer sash, in case you need a two point authentication."

    On a turn, everyone is treated to a familiar sight. A 4-X T790 Heavy Transport class Authorized Starship, the Redemption, now an utter wreck.. The spine of the once glorious cruiser was split straight down the middle, ant the entire engineering section towards the rear was almost entirely absent. The nose of the ship has been warped by the intense temperatures it sustained crashing through the atmosphere, compounding with it slamming into the planet below. The crater it rested within was nearly double it's size, and trailed off several miles deeper into the forest. Though the fires must've been out for days, acrid smoke still leeks fourth and accumulates into a bank of darkened clouds.

    A perimeter fence has been erected along the crater's edge, with hastily built yet sturdy looking towers placed every thirty feet to help keep the area secure. Xarvalis is able to pick up radio chatter in his glasses, as the pilot secures a landing pad while also detailing their passengers and your apparent affiliations. From this, he's able to get warning ahead of time that there were going to be security personal meeting them face to face and would have time to warn his companions if he saw fit.

    Clustered around a large breach in the whole at ground level, are five metal structures that are in turned surrounded by a low concrete wall, their hasty construction evident of the scaffolding and people scuttling about to get their base up and running. One area of the compound, next to the largest building of the five, are a series of flat platforms occupied by aircraft similar to the one your in. The transport starts to dip down, aiming for space cleared for it. The soldiers around you begin to ready themselves, standing at attention the moment you come to a halt. The tingling sensation slowly dies down as the craft shuts down, and Lieutenant Black approaches the sliding panel which has begun to open.
    Gaar'o has to admit, he's impressed by the sight of the base and how fast it's been built. He's still not sure if these natives are going to get the group off this rock or kill and dissect them, but at least they've got ingenuity.

    You're first met with an intense smell of ash, fuel, dirt, and sweat the moment it does. Your companions pay it now mind, obviously having grown used to the unpleasant smells in the short time they've been assigned here. Following their commanding officer, they start to march out with a few remaining behind to offer a full escort for your group as everyone prepares to exit onto the tarmac. An odd ethereal voice is heard as Black marches forward ahead of everyone else. "Tier Three Leader Dark, Tier Five Leader Tu-Gru has been awaiting for you to arrive. You are required to address this organism and reveal developments regarding your ongoing mission."

    At the voice's source, everyone sees the first tangible proof that the natives are, in fact, working alongside officers who survived the crash. They're a tall, hunched over being, easily ten feet in height if they were to stand straight. Their stick thin limb structure implies little if any strength, and it's apparent to everyone that this member of the guard is having trouble with the planet's dense gravity well. Whatever suit they must've worn to help him in such environments has clearly been damaged or lost, instead replaced with a uniform that barely fits them. You can't see any recognizable facial features, their head instead smooth and domed like that of a fungus. It's neck is bent forward, the domed structure facing the group. When it spoke, the skin of it's head rippled and vibrated in order to transmit the sound.
    Well...that at least means we're not getting dissected. Still, I don't know how keen the Authority's gonna be about this whole group...or me.

    Unlike some of his newly-found companions, Gaar'o is clearly not as amused with the idea of Grillik being the face of the group. His expression twists into a mixture of a grimace and a glare as he tries not to think of the many ways the Overseer could get them all put in front of a firing squad.

    Huh, that was actually pretty tactful...I wonder how long until we get kr'azked.

    "The Xxx-EeEe eta'eta'eta' was compromised." Sprog revealed, though whatever word it used to describe the suit was enough to make those with sensitive eardrums very uncomfortable. The natives among the group in particular seem very bothered by the sound it produced, but offer up no verbal complaints. It either ignored or was ignorant of the discomfort imposed, merely taking the sash with it's slender, delicate, six fingered hands. The tips of their fingers traced the fabric, focusing mainly on the various insignia and medals embroidered into it. Whatever it was doing however, it seemed to finish and passed the cloth back into the Beholder's telkinetic grip.

    "This organism has been able to properly verify your status. It is a positive concept that you retained your structural integrity, Tier eight leader Griklik. Are these organisms classified as offenders?"

    Overseer Griklik

    "Most unfortunate." Griklik comments at the mention of the broken device. "Were. Under emergency protocols I have recruited then as energy crew and the have complied. Under Authority legislation they are to be treated as lowest tier officers until contact with the authority mainframe had been established." The overseer informs

    Ashani's head tendrils squirm anxiously after Griklik's and the tall one's exchange. While she's glad that the Overseer once again stands up for them when he just as easily could have done otherwise, she's about worried about the 'until' part.
    Still, for the time being, the Sthyss knows it's best to play along.

    "Until, huh?" Gaar'o repeats, sounding very unsurprised, "Good to know how this works."

    "Their status is acknowledged." Sprog reverbed, afterward rotating it's dome towards Black. "Tier three leader Dark, please escort Tier leader eight Griklik and the fleeting Tier one subordinate organisms to Tier leader seven Praxus before proceeding with your protocols."

    Black placed his hand against his forehead in some form of salute in response, before he turned to face the rag-tag survivors. "Ready when you are, sir."
