"Your heroes abandoned you," Director Esoria sh'Vreshaa taunted as she stood in the doorway to the Executive Stateroom that was doubling as their cell for their high profile passenger/prisoner. "Not only did they flee like cowards they bombarded the surface of Svian with Berthold Rays in the process."

Minister Zehoi D'ian sat in the recliner in the center of her room resting her face on her hand and trying not to be overly annoyed by the Andorian that stood opposite her. Ever since she had been captured on Svian Director sh'Vreshaa had made a point of trying to learn everything that she may, or may not, have told the Federation about the Emerald Chain. When she insisted that she had said nothing, Esoria just took it as a personal slight and came at her.

"You've done all that, Esoria," D'ian charged. "The Enterprise was just here to help and you ran them off."

"Why would I ever do something so crass?" the Andorian asked mockingly.

The Orion moved her hands to her lap, "Maybe because when you were last in here with Osyraa you thought it would be fun to launch that weapon into the atmosphere?"

The Captain of the Cerulean laughed, "Oh yeah! Forgot about that. You know, Princess, you may be brighter than you look."

"Wish I could say the same," Zehoi looked at the window. "So, not that I don't enjoy our witty repartee, what do you want?"

"I just need to know what you told your friends out there. Then I let you do whatever it is you want. Osyraa wants me to bring you to her, but I think that our friendship means I need to give you an escape plan." She shifted her pose to look a bit friendlier. "We were inseparable growing up. I just want you to be safe."

The Orion shook her head, "I don't know how many times I have to tell you I didn't tell them anything before you'll believe it."

"But I do!" Esoria corrected. "Osyraa isn't as trusting. She wants me to have you submitted to questioning under Aurellio, but I don't want to do that to you."

"Aurellio can ask me all that he wants. I still will tell you the same," she answered.

In a near whisper sh'Vreshaa answered, "I believe you." She returned to her more stoic, commanding presence, "But I don't have the luxury of my own beliefs. We'll deal with your friends soon enough, they may have escaped for now but we will find them all the same. As for you," the guards entered and grabbed for her, "You have a doctor's appointment to get to."
