Mission: Shattered
Location: Brig, ISS Gaman
Timeline: MD 01 : 0928 Hrs

Tucker woke with a bit of a start, he was laying on a rather uncomfortable surface and the light was rather bright and harsh. He made a face as he slowly moved into a sitting position and reached up to rub his throbbing head. It was clear he was in some kind of holding cell and now he was trying to replay his memories that led up to this moment. It was clear something was very wrong.

For a long moment, nothing seemed to happen. There was an eerie silence that fell over the brig cell, save for the soft chatter that occurred just outside the field of view of the force field. In another moment, Valiyi stood at the other side of the forcefield, wearing little more than a short cut black dress with matching, knee-high boots, with an unfamiliar golden insignia in the form of a badge resting upon her chest. She waved a hand, and the force field came down, but only for long enough for her to step through the barrier, before it sizzled and came back up again.

She folded her arms, eyes resting upon Tucker. "... Oh what am I going to do with you?"

Tucker blinked a couple of times as he looked over Valiyi, the confusion was clear on his features as he looked at her. She was dressed a little different than what he was used to, not that he was complaining about what she was wearing. The badge on her chest looked like military but not one he recognized. "Valiyi, what's going on? This ain't the Rosie and why you dressed like that?"

"The Rosie?" Valiyi's lips curled into a devious smile as she took a few steps closer, kneeling down to his seated level. "Oh no, Tucker. We're on a much bigger, more well maintained starship than that. Relax. Everything is being taken care of as we speak."

Tucker furrowed his brow as he looked up at Valiyi, he hadn't been on the Rosie for long, but this was very much out of the character he'd seen from her. Her dress, her body language... Was she the saboteur? "Everything is being taken care of but you got me stuck in this cell. Some kinda uniform I aint never seen before... Who the hell are you?"

Valiyi waved a hand. "Formality. Some of the higher ups on this vessel have come in contact with a more unsavory sort of person, and we cannot lose our host's trust." She reached out to touch his hand with her own, expression of mild hurt written across her features. "... Don't you trust me, Tucker?"

"I find that answer vague and unconvincing," Tucker glanced up at her, narrowing his eyes at her when she touched his hand. "I ain't been on the Rosie that long and, darlin', I can count on one hand the people I trust. Maybe I should talk to one of these higher up types, might help us all just get a little more friendly with each other."

The Betazoid's eyes narrowed, before she removed her hand, resting it on her knee. "Well, that's not going to do at all." She stood, hands on her hips. "If you can't even trust me, I can't help you get what you want at all."

"You ain't exactly givin' me a whole lot of reason to trust you," Tucker pointed out. "Won't tell me where I am or why you got me locked up... Makes a man suspicious."

"I'm hurt, Tucker." Valiyi put a hand on her hip, adding a small pout. "That you'd think you could escape by utilizing me in your plans. That won't do at all."

"Oh darlin' this might be a military ship but I aint some slouch and you seem like you'd be a high value target," Tucker smirked at her playfully. "Unless you plan on tellin' me something or letting me enjoy some creature comforts, up to and including see what you look like without that dress, I don't think we have much more to talk about casually."

Valiyi waved a hand, and as the forcefield flickered open, a pair of guards stood behind her, wielding nasty-looking phaser rifles. Without taking her eyes off of Tucker, Valiyi stepped through to meet the guards, moving to turn the field back on. "... I think you've given me all the information I need, Tucker."

Tucker just chuckled, he took a long look at the pair of guards and considered trying to make his move. As he stood up, he took a couple of steps forward, "Oh darlin' I didn't give you a thing you didn't already know. Still don't know why I'm here but I'm gonna figure it out."

Turning to give the man one last look, Valiyi's lips quirked into a small smile. "You're cute. And you'll find out one way or another, whether it's on our terms or yours remains to be seen."

"Awww shucks darlin', there's no need to flatter me," Tucker replied with a charming grin. "In my experience with incarceration, it's usually a little of both. Come by any time for a chat or maybe a little more gorgeous."
