Souvi entered the cabin, quite upset. He was about to say something bad...
"I'm sorry, but you may want to see this, maybe actually answer it too." Rim cut him off, while offering him a communicator. He heard a faint voice then a sound like someone had just hit a hard surface.
"The transmission seems scrambled... Can you get it any better?" Rim changed the configurations but the voice was still weak. He shook his head. "Sorry, Souvi, but I think we can get a better signal at the Communications Room."
The young man headed there and picked the transmitter, the signal was a lot clearer. He could distinctly hear Rueben's voice.
"Come in, Rueben? It's Souvi!"
