NARRATOR: Cavalry, fairy godmother, deus ex machina... These are all less-than-apropo monikers to hang on the UNS Battleplate Vredefort right now.
(unknown, Vredefort): Serial Peacemaker, this is the Vredefort. Please make ready to receive passengers.
ENNESBY: Sir, I think we're about to be boarded.
NARRATOR: The Vredefort saved the day, yes. Think of it, though, as "the piper," because the piper always needs to be paid.
UNS MARINE: Where's Captain Kevyn Andreyasn?
KEVYN: Right here, gentlemen. Is this about the galactic core event and the Athens II?
UNS MARINE: We picked up a 'cast from the Athens II, yes. What did you have to do with the destruction of that ship?
KEVYN: Um... nothing? I mean, we were talking to them and learned they were too close to this anomaly at the galactic core, and then we got cut off.
KEVYN: Didn't you read what Athena sent you? I thought that was why you were saving my bacon.
UNS MARINE: In a word, no. Athena's message threw up a red flag because of your name, and the associated coordinates.
KEVYN: And my name is flagged...
UNS MARINE: ...because of a certain customer list your people have purloined.
KEVYN: Ah. Well, as long as you're here, can we talk about saving the galaxy?
UNS MARINE: Boy, hand some folks an ounce of political antimatter and they become megalomaniacs.
ENNESBY: No, he's pretty much always like this.
