"Serpico would probably be the star home-runner."

...now I'm picturing Serpico in Homestar Runner attire.

This deserves an explanation, and quite possibly won't be getting one in-game.

In Alexis' language (auto-translated for everyone else) the word for any non-abstract noun is derived from the echolocation profile of the object that it refers to. This means that some information about the material that the object is made of is included in the noun.

Normally, no-one notices this, since Alexis can echolocate and then pick up the right noun. In space, however, relying only on his eyes, it's a bit more difficult; since he didn't, at that point, know what the spaceship's echolocation profile looked like, he was sort of guessing at the texture, which changed the noun.

Since the group is now back in atmosphere, he'll glance at the spaceship and correct his noun.

Why did you make an edit just to change the word several to an incorrect spelling, ccc??

...I have no idea. I blame the lateness of the hour at the time.

Himi, may I suggest instead of cutting open the hull, using Illusion to make a part of it invisible? This prevents you from triggering Lumina's lightning trap while still letting you see the cargo.

I think Asch can only use illusion to grant the appearance of invisibility, not actual invisibility. She has to know what the illusion should show in order to show it; she cannot use illusion to see if schrodingers cat is alive or dead without opening the box.

Hmmm. I see your point. It does seem fitting that the illusion rune can only grant the illusion of invisibility.

Evidence Rune: Reveal Hidden Evidence, perhaps?

It's not just Lumina's lightning trap; there's also a reasonable possibility that slicing open their cargo hold may make the red-ship crew turn against us.

If there's anything left of the lightning trap after they crashed an entire ship into it, I'll be quite impressed with Lumina.

Asch is trying to conserve ether. And if the red ship crew turns on asch for checking something that will sort out conflicting claims, they weren't on the level to begin with. A detective has no room to make allies, as anyone they meet has potential to turn out to be a criminal.

Fair enough. Now you just need to persuade them of that.

Flying around all the time is really not conducive to battlefield banter with people on the ground.
