"Ambassador," Tayvore said, in dress uniform with a sidearm concealed as did her security team. "The Earth vessel should be in the general area at any time. Are you prepared to depart or shall we wait for them to contact us?" she asked, anxious to get the first contact part of first contact over.

"I'm prepared," Tol Sa'id said, "but let's wait for them to hail us. They, no doubt, have preparations to make as well."

Ketol Eror, Tol Sa'id's assistant, stood close by. He knew it was important not to rush this.

"Very well Ambassador," the Lieutenant said, she motioned for her team to take their seats. She moved to the front and sat down in the co-pilots seat. She opened up the control system and inserted her ID card activating the controls. She began the process of warming the engines and preparing for takeoff.

Eyri hated her dress uniform, it was tight and uncomfortable and always came with an overly formal occasion. She fidgeted with the hem again before finally entering the hanger. "Ambassador," She said with a polite nod as she approached. "Any last minute requirements for the Science Directorate?" She asked.

"No," Tol replied. "Let's just get this over with." Ketol nodded in agreement. "The sooner, the better."

"Transmission from Headquarters," Tayvore reported. "There is a transmission from the Earth vessel Eagle requesting to speak with you, Ambassador."

"Put them through."

There was a short burst of static over the shuttle's speakers and then it cleared up it was a voice only transmission.

"Eagle, this is the Paraagan delegation," said Tol, "we're receiving you."

"This is Captain Cavett we are in position and awaiting your arrival, do you have an ETA?" Cavett asked, sounding staticky.

Tol looked to her assistant to fill her in on the ETA to the rendezvous point.

Ketol looked at the chart in his hand. "We should arrive in approximately one hour from now." He told Tol. He was looking forward to what this conversation with the humans would bring about for their world.

With a grimace, Tol relayed the information to the Eagle's commander.

"An hour," Cavett repeated an annoyed tone to his voice. "We will be awaiting your arrival to our port docking port. Do you have any special requests that we need to be aware of for your arrival?" he asked.

"Nothing outside of the requests we have already provided, Mister Cavett. We will see you in one hour." Looking to Tayvore, she said, "Close the channel."

"Captain Cavett out," Gene said, gesturing the comm officer to close their end of the channel.
