"Captain Hiyan, we have an accord. May it be a pleasure working with you." Matthias said, shaking the offered hand. "I'll get to work on getting you that manifest straight away so you know what resources we have to work with."
Matthias sat back down again, and looked pointedly at Julian.
"Kid, if you're interested in having that history chat, now is the time. As stated I'm going to be swamped with work soon, so as the good captain put it, speak now or forever hold your peace." he said.
