Fido is gracious for the cookies and eats one. He hopes there is no chocolates in them because he is severely allergic to them. Because he is a dog. Chocolates are poisonous to dogs.

Dahlia skittered back to her corner. Her world was changed. This metal-person, this CHEF, was some godlike being no doubt. To create such flavor, such beauty from what appeared to be simple chemicals and organic materials was amazing.

She would need to study this in detail. Much more detail.

The one, the only, Vancho!

Chef continued to stare, a faint whirring sound coming from within its chassis. Several tense seconds passed. "WAIT IN AN ORDERLY LINE NEXT TIME, STONE MAN."

Chef backed off, serving Fido a cookie. It didn't have any real chocolate in it, at the very least.

RE: Frontier Fucked - Chapter 1: Ghetto Gotta Git Gone
The Devil peered over his gossip rag at the escalation. Finally something lawsuit worthy! Time to get the word on before the violence starts.

Donavan takes out a small bottle, sprays a little on his hands and rubs his chin...he then takes a swig out of it, the heavy smell of sulphur drifts across the room as he stands up

"Now Now Bots and Busts, i am sure we can settle this dispute in a reasonable matter, and if not... Hello Donavan Darko. Lawyer for hire. Don't hesitate to sue the shit out of the other for any dents on you two's ..exteriors.."

Dahlia scuttled off to calm down.

Apollo and Chef continued FACEOFF

Fido was given a cookie with no chocolate.

"...Thank you?" Fido said. He eats the delicious "chocolate" cookie. "So what brought you here? And is everyone here for the Spacebeard thing?"

"ARE YOU HERE FOR A COOKIE?"

"Nah, there's no need for this to get violent or anything. Besides, lawsuits are sort of boring? Like, no offense or anything, lawyer guy, but your profession isn't exactly inspiring any sick jams any time soon." Apollo gently patted the beam katana hanging from his side. "Sorry for not waiting in line, I guess. There was room, so I just grabbed it. Didn't figure it would inconvenience anyone." Apollo proceeded to absolutely destroy the rest of the cookie with his rock-face.

"If it's any compensation, the cookie was pretty cool. Like, I can't taste it or anything, but it was aesthetically pleasing."

Varo finally finishes tinkering with one of his devices, looking up long enough to take in the scene. Right, he'd forgotten other people were present.

He approaches the robot handing out cookies with the intent of swiping one for himself, but seems to think better of it after watching the statue-guy get chastised for doing just so. Instead, he winds up just sort of studying the robot intently, idly nodding to himself without seeming to realize it.

"Hm? Oh yes right sure," he says as he swipes a cookie as if per reflex.

"I was wondering about the harmonization of your sensors, bit judging from your swift reactioning, I suspect that they're as good as can be. But whats this taste scanner? Whats it do, hows it work?" He asks enthusiastically, all the while gesturing with the cookie.

"RUDE," the robot said flatly as Varo swiped a cookie. It had a spatula ready and everything!

"IT SCANS THE CHEMICAL COMPOSITION OF A GIVEN ITEM AND RUNS SIMULATIONS ON GENERAL TASTING DISTRIBUTIONS FROM DOZENS OF KNOWN SPECIES. MY TASTES ARE AS REFINED AS THEY COULD POSSIBLY BE. THAT IS WHY I AM THE CHEF HERE."

Varo gives a shrug, popping the cookie into his mouth to make short work of it. Had he not been clear enough, or was the chef's conversation systems suboptimal? Whatever, there would always be another chance to ponder such technology.

Oh. This was a pretty good cookie, the likes of which he had not had in years. Maybe he should've paused to savor it properly, but that was too late now.

Harmonia, who had been boredly stirring a fake martini made of glitter and dyed liquid (it was probably a bathroom cleaner) looks over to Dan and winces... At least, winces as well as her sub-par face allows. She mumbles into her (non-potable) drink.

"Oh Sol, and I thought my frame was bad, poor guy..."

She spins around in her chair to survey the other patrons of the bar. Were they ALL here for the treasure hunt? Did that bee even have a space-suit? Was that a demon?

Well, this would be interesting, at least. She notes the in-poor-repair chef robot serving cookies. She wondered if, along with the damaged droid... Thing... If they would compose the crew's only synthetic members. Who knew, you sometimes couldn't tell. Maybe the statue guy could be a synthetic? That'd be an oddly expressive frame, if so, she'd be jealous...

She stirs her drink again. It was all she got it for, was just to stir and toy with. The glitter was her addition.

She sighs. At least, she emulates one. Hopefully the captain would get here soon.

Darwin is sitting, reading something, when he finally catches the smell of those sweet, sweet cookies. He hadn't eaten anything that smelled that good in weeks. He walks up to Chef, and after realizing nobody else milling around the robot was taking a cookie finally steps forward.

He shrugged again, pulling up his legs to kneel on the sofa and turn better to Dan. "In the sense that I am looking for something to do, yes. I'm hoping to be accepted into this crew, and say 'sayonara' to this station. Even if it wasn't a floating wreck, I should be moving on by now already, and I've done too little for too long."

"Are you looking to join solely for the treasure then, or something else? I could live if this adventure planned goes bust so long as I get some funds."

"Huh?" Apollo looks up from his RETRO MP3 PLAYER distractedly, removing a headphone from his ear. "Oh, yeah, the treasure hunt. Yeah, I guess that'll be cool or something. Don't have much better to do, and I'm almost out of cash, so not starving to death would be pretty fuckin alright. What about you? What are you here for?" This guy looked like a real corporate suit. Mostly because he was wearing a corporate suit. He was probably out to earn money to deliver to his boss so that the capitalistic machine could be fueled even harder. Laaaame.

Apollo would have rolled his eyes if they weren't rocks. "Stable work? Man, you've really bought into the system wholesale. The moment you start agree to the idea of steady employment they've already got you wrapped around their fingers. Once you take part in capitalism you ʙᴇᴄᴏᴍᴇ ᴄᴀᴘɪᴛᴀʟɪsᴍ.
