The hesitation in the Aschen Admiral amidst Stratcona's speech did not go unnoticed. The woman was curious, perhaps intrigued, though still not without caution. Douglas was studying the woman opposite of the projection, her mannerisms, the way she went about delegating her subordinates. The woman was direct, as most Aschen naval officer were. While this was a first encounter for Douglas, the stories certainly held their merit.
"My deepest apologies, Admiral Nash..." Stratcona continued now in his own native tongue, "... My dialect is less Aschen Anquietas and more Earth Latin."
The Admiral, as his presence was now visible to the Aschen officer, appeared to be a rather straight cut fellow. A veteran in life as the marks of age decorated his face. Additionally his combat veterancy also left its resume across his visage. The right eye was covered with a patch, hiding the disfigured socket beneath. A litter of scars varying in length lay scattered over his aging face, the most prominent cascading to under his ocular coverage. His mane consisted of deep brown hair, which surprisingly did not carry the silver discoloration that comes with age, likely some form or other of hygienic care that maintained the natural, youthful colour. This application also seemed to carry on to the facial hair that covered his mandible, and the swath beneath his nose. The uniform was more leather based, at least the most outer shell, with a composite mantle that circumvented the neck, minus the front most of the man's neck. This uniform accessory stretched over the shoulders, though did not inhibit the movement of the arms. At the back it connected with a two gold plated clasps. The shoulders displayed a series of four chevrons, which in the UCP was a display of Admiral. Oddly a reminiscence of old army rankings, if only holding an extra chevron. This the UCP used as a throwback to the old days of earth bound military.
The captain was also in view, a woman airing on the younger half of human life. She was in her thirties, long brunette hair tied into a tight and proper bun, as was the custom uniform appearance. Unlike her superior, Captain Kalenskov wore a wool uniform, traditional of the forces of old Earth, though it would likely be impossible to determine this through the likes of holographic projection. The woman herself bore the insignia of Captain, which were four straight bars on her epaulettes. They did not bare the star of old as such was abolished when Earth was united as a planet, not under the United States of America. The star was indicative of the United States Navy.
"With your permission, I would like for my flagship to remain in orbit with my fleet." Stratcona now addressed, eager to commence the negotiating, though not so much so as to risk his vessel. "I understand completely the procedures and precautions you wish to take, however I too must be cautious. While we seek peace, we have had our own encounters that have made us careful. Myself, my second in command, and a small security team would like to dock aboard a corvette class of our own making."
