*lets self into Stephen Tanner's quarters on the Bella Nova*
*closes door behind her*

*waits for him to notice her*
*crosses arms*

Have you taken a look at the calendar lately?

If I didn't know better, I'd say you enjoy it, Stephen.

C'mon, you have a finance waiting - a marriage to plan! You should be far more eager than me to get back.

*looks away*

*feels Hoshi's hand on his leg*

It's been a year, and how we left things...

*licks lips*

Well, we've been declared dead now. He's probably moving on with his life...maybe found someone else.

*scoffs with the others*

Bullshit. He was devoted to you.

*sees the doubt*

Okay, think of it this way. If your places were reversed? Would you wait?

Of course I...

*trails off and then grins as Hoshi flashes him a dazzling smile*

When did you get so wily, Hoshi Sato?

*laughs, happy the conversation has moved off their children*

She's always been wily, she just hid it better before.

*nudges her with the toe of his boot*

Being a pirate has honed your edge, hey Hosh?

*hand flies to her mouth*

Oh my god. We are, aren't we?

*sees their blank stares*

We're pirates!!

And you didn't even bring a bottle of rum to the party, Hoshi!

*falls backwards laughing*

Yo ho ho indeed.

*sits up, wiping a tear that was almost entirely from laughing from the corner of her eye*

Man. A year and a day ago, if you told me that in the morning I'd be signing onto a pirate ship, I'd have shipped you off to Phlox. But now...

*grins* I'd have never gotten the chance to talk my way onto a Harbonnian superfreighter....

...and helped clean them out.

*shakes head*

Of course, if we were back on the NX, we'd be trying to stop something like that.

*looks up at Steo, catches his eye*

But you know what...

Okay. I admit, I'd never have reached this level of knowledge in quantum mechanics if we hadn't ended up here.

Who'd have thought, I'd be reading time travel papers and understand them...

Understanding them? Chris, you're correcting them. You're not just the resident expert on quantum on this ship, I think you'd even give T'Pol or Tucker a run for their money now.

*cuts her off with a wave of his hand*

And no, I am not exaggerating.

It still hasn't brought us home yet. It would be nice just to hold... just to talk to her. Just to send her a message that I haven't forgotten her.


Wait a minute... *sits up straight*

What if we just do that? Send them a message?

*sits up with her*

Could we have been that stupid??

*sees Matt's blank expression*

We've been focussing on creating a...a phyiscal bridge. A replica of the event that brought us here. And it's been eluding us -- we haven't enough energy, enough control to safely send matter across...but we might have enough to punch a microtunnel, down which we can send a data stream...

I mean, it matters if matter gets a bit garbled, but a signal...*looks to Hoshi*

*nods, hair whipping around her face*

I can create a signal that will be readable...I designed our autocorrection matrix, after all.

We can send them a message. We can tell them we're alive, and we're trying to get home.
