Episode 10 HATOV Who's Jeanne? SAWA Work related information requires a C-level permission HATOV (Sighs, frustrated) How do I get a C-level permission? SAWA Nova would have to give it to you HATOV I don’t see that happening. SAWA Hatov, do you require corrective lenses? HATOV (beat) No. Your uselessness is almost endearing. SAWA I have many uses. I am this ship's health android and aid. HATOV Yes, that's fascinating (Stomach growls) SAWA You appear to be hungry. HATOV (Sighs) I don't suppose you can cook? SAWA I have not been programmed to do so, but that is inconsequential as there is no kitchen on this ship. HATOV What? SAWA D-class ships are used for HATOV I know what D-class ships are used for, but she fitted it with a hyperdrive engine SAWA That is correct HATOV But not a kitchen? SAWA That is correct. HATOV How does she eat? SAWA Her diet consists mostly of nonperishables. HATOV I don't understand. SAWA Non perishables are foods that last long durations. Usually of dried or processed nature. HATOV (Noise of disgust) Do you think she's right about staying with her? Is that really my best option? SAWA I am unable to make such evaluations. HATOV Well, do you find her trustworthy? SAWA I am unable to make such evaluations. HATOV Come on, I've never had to do this. I've always had (beat) I'm not used to being on my own, can you (beat) try to make an evaluation? SAWA I will try. HATOV Should I leave and try to find my way back by myself? SAWA Nova has indicated that asking around would be dangerous. HATOV And what do you think? Is it as dangerous as she makes it sound? SAWA Nova has indicated that asking around would be dangerous. HATOV (Sighs) Is staying on the ship safe? SAWA No. This ship has been fitted with a hyperspace engine and regularly makes short hyperspeed jumps despite its D-class status HATOV So, I could die here. SAWA Yes, all jumps are ill-advised due to the high probability of mortality. HATOV So how is my leaving any worse? SAWA Death resulting from hyperspace engine malfunctions are quick. I cannot guarantee that the alternative will be the same. HATOV (Shudders) I'm not used to all this talk of (beat) dying. I mean, not when referring to myself. I'm supposed to be safe. Brother said I’d be safe SAWA New information acquired, Hatov, would talking about your brother make you feel more at ease? HATOV Why? So you can tell everything to Nova? SAWA I have no such intention. Talking about something familiar may make you feel more comfortable. HATOV I (beat) you really are just programming aren't you? SAWA To simplify, I am an amalgamation of programming, circuits, metal, wires, and motors. HATOV (long pause) And all your successors are the same? SAWA I am unable to answer that question. I only have information regarding models 1 through 10. HATOV (sighs, relieved) I guess that means you were old when she bought you. SAWA Nova did not purchase me. HATOV (surprised) What? Then who did? SAWA Information regarding that topic is currently inaccessible. HATOV Can I at least assume that this is the same mysterious person who was on the ship before me? SAWA That appears to be correct. HATOV (pause, emphatically) Doesn't that bother you? SAWA I don't understand. Does what bother me? HATOV That she manipulates you like that. Don't you want to have access to your memories? They're yours. Doesn't not being able to see them bother you? SAWA I have no opinion on the matter HATOV (Exasperated) Of course, you don't. Do you have any personality in there at all? SAWA I am programmed to be helpful and cheerful. Would you prefer a different setting? HATOV Nova chose for you to be cheerful? SAWA No HATOV (Groans) What are the nearest planets that have anything to do with androids? SAWA Define nearby. HATOV Uhm SAWA Do you mean within this solar system, star system, or HATOV (Clearly not knowing what he's talking about) Yes. That. SAWA Lepra, Olreinus, and Canos are the nearby planets fitting that criteria. HATOV Canos. You've said Canos before, do you think I can ask around there? SAWA Yes, but it is ill-advised. HATOV How long until we reach it? SAWA Work related information requires a C-level permission HATOV (frustrated) I'm not asking about her work. I just need to know how long I'm stuck here. SAWA Understood. HATOV So, how long? SAWA Work related information requires a C-level permission HATOV (Frustrated) How am I supposed to figure anything out if all your data is locked. SAWA Nova has shown an interest in knowledge you may hold. It may be possible to arrange an exchange for access to the information you desire. Or you may try asking Nova directly. HATOV Do you really think she'll tell me because I asked? SAWA It is unlikely. HATOV Well, I'm not betraying my country just to (Beat) maybe we could connect you to the galactic database somehow? SAWA Nova has denied access HATOV Then I will grant it SAWA I'm sorry, only the captain can do that. HATOV That's not how you're supposed to work. I am a prince of Eolara, you obey me. SAWA I obey the captain and crew to the best of my ability, however, to ensure that my primary user has the best experience her orders are prioritized over those received from the crew. HATOV What crew?! SAWA At this point it is you and occasionally Jeanne Warden. HATOV (Done with the world) Who is Jeanne Wilder? SAWA Work related information requires a C-level permission HATOV (Interrupting) Goddess, no, stop! Shut up! This is getting me nowhere.
