Of course, the impossible man needed to choose what he considered the most high class establishment on the Station. T'Prina thought the establishment was too concerned with image and less with actual culinary accomplishment. Her own culinary skills were barely minimal, still she could appreciate flavor over style. Puzzles had arguably better food, even if it did lack what some considered a polished and refined atmosphere. She moved to enter the dining area when the maitre 'd loudly cleared his throat and looked down his long nose at her.

"Excuse me... Miss. Do you have... a reservation?" The man highly doubted it. Although she was a Vulcan, she looked like a mere slip of a girl, who'd blow away in a strong wind.

"Of course I have a reservation. I would not be wasting my time here otherwise." Her voice was stringent and was at odds with her soft youthful appearance. "I am Lt. T'Prina and I am to meet with Mr. Kenneth Hawke here. I am sure he is already seated." The posturing annoyed her, and the sooner this meal was done, the sooner she could get back to the much more fascinating problem of the spider ship. Hawke had interested her just enough for this momentary delay.

The maitre 'd colored, his sallow face turning a deep shade of eggplant. "Mr. Hawke's guest! Of course, right this way!" The man nearly swallowed his tongue, as he made his way around the podium to lead her to Hawke's table. He made a production of announcing her arrival and pulling out her chair.

"Your guest has arrived, Mr. Hawke." A light sheen of sweat was visible on his bald forehead and his hands fumbled on the back of the tall chair.

"That is entirely unnecessary. I am well acquainted in how chairs function. I am sure there are more pressing matters for you to attend to." T'Prina seated herself gracefully, and summarily dismissed the man.

"Good evening, Mr. Hawke. I hope you are finding the Station's accommodations to your liking?" Beneath the table, she placed her handbag on her lap, inside was her PADD with much of the day's notes.

T'Prina let the compliment roll over her, unsure of how to respond. Her appearance didn't often come up in conversation, and she didn't think much of it, other than Kenneth was probably being polite.

"I thank you for your kind words. Modeling is a career path I had not considered for myself. My work with microbiology, among other things, is not very glamorous." She stopped for a moment, and took a sip from the crystal water glass that was on the table in front of her. Water was water, whether you drank it from a clay jar or etched crystal. She had to admit though, the way the candlelight filtered through the cut glass was at least aesthetically pleasing.

"I only spoke to the Commander in passing, and he did not mention it to me directly. However I am aware of the experiment. Do you really think it wise that your son does this alone?" Once she had found out about the plans for a flight test, Hawke's cryptic gloomy statement to her made more sense. She would like to know the reasoning for such an odd decision, and hoped the older Hawke would be forthcoming with an explanation.

T'Prina took the offered PADD and scrolled through the information, before responding.

"Interesting. I can see where you drew from Specialist Volskene's algorithm since I worked on the translation. There are some variables I do not recognize, but judging from the groupings here, and here, I am fairly sure they are from whatever the Breen were working on." She set the PADD back down for a moment, and looked up at Kenneth.

"Your confidence in the Commander, your son, is not misplaced. He is competent. Sending him alone, just does not seem like a smart decision to me. Unless, this is one of those instances of a father wanting to bring more prestige to the family name?" She raised her slanted eyebrows at him, and took another sip from her water glass. It was a small risk to goad him like that, he could be offended enough to ask her to leave. But just maybe, he'd be amused enough to talk more.

The Vulcan acknowledged the compliment with only a slightly raised eyebrow. It seemed charm and flattery, along with his overwhelming hubris, were as natural to Kenneth Hawke as breathing. The charm he had in common with his son, however she was inclined to believe James was more genuine. Maybe it was biased and unfair to compare them, however she needed to extrapolate from known data.

"Perhaps I am misunderstanding, Mr. Hawke. As with experimentation, I believe intent is just as important as results. Your ego or social standing is of little interest to me, as are your politics. I am sorry if it is a disappointment, but I much prefer plain speaking rather than veiling every comment in layers of misdirection." She raised an eyebrow at him in gentle disapproval.

"This is why I prefer the hard facts of science, rather than the circular talk of diplomats. If I wanted to spend my days pretending to tolerate idiots, I would have become an ambassador." The Vulcan picked up the menu and frowned at it. Every item listed was likely 'gourmet and authentic' meaning overly complicated and questionable at best. Other than her rare indulgence in a dark chocolate biscotti, eating was a chore to ensure survival, not something she particularly enjoyed.
