Be back for dinner, mommy o.
Hey, Jax, wait.
Welcome to Earth.
You're not Professor Osborn.
You're perceptive, I see.
I'm his teaching assistant, Xander Duvall.
I was told I'd be meeting Dr. Osborn, so...
Yeah, he was supposed to. He wanted to, in fact.
是的 他是要来见你的 他也想来
But he's very busy, so he sent me instead.
You think he'd find the time
to meet the orphaned niece he's never met.
Yeah, like I said, he's
I heard you.
I'm not sure we're completely getting off
on the right foot here, are we?
Well, it appears I'm not the only one who's perceptive.
I had a class with your mother...
when I was a freshman.
She was an inspiring teacher.
I'm sorry for your loss.
That's very kind of you.
I suppose we should go get my duffels then.
You may just be strong enough to carry all of them.
Interesting he chose to model his home on the Queen Anne's.
Not what I was expecting.
Yeah? What were you expecting?
Certainly not to find my uncle aspiring to live in the home
of a bonanza king.
even if just a very impressive replica.
Is that you, Mr. Duvall?
It is, Professor.
Sorry I was unable to greet you personally,
but it is most agreeable to finally meet you after all these years,
sadly under such unfortunate circumstances.
I appreciate your help, uncle.
It's been a difficult few months as I'm sure you can imagine.
I presume you've already been briefed on your dispensation.
If you mean that as my only living relative,
I'm now your burden, then yes.
Hardly a burden, my dear.
I'm not an emotional man, but I loved your mother dearly.
And to her, family was everything.
I feel it incumbent upon me to make sure that you're looked after.
It's what she would have wanted.
Is there any news on the investigation?
None as of yet,
but I'll see what I can find out.
In the interim, you're aware I arranged with the chancellor
for you to matriculate this semester at the Fleet Training Academy.
I appreciate you interceding on my behalf.
The school year started two weeks ago,
but based on your grades
you should have no problem playing catch up.
And if there's anything else you need
Mr. Duvall can assist you.
He's one of my brightest pupils.
Please feel free to rely on him for any of your immediate needs.
I certainly will, uncle.
Now as Mr. Duvall said,
the school year has indeed commenced,
and I am already quite inundated with work,
so if you'll excuse me,
I'll see you both on Friday for dinner here promptly at 7:00.
Such a warm and sociable man.
Great men like the professor are often somewhat quirky.
Not the word I would've used.
Anything else I can help you with?
What do you know about my the death of my parents?
I only T.A. For the professor,
and as you can imagine, he's pretty tight lipped.
I guess I'll be seeing you around then.
Sooner than you might like. I'll be seeing you in class.
May I assist you?
Is this Interstellar Protocol?
Wrong class. Sorry.
Protocol is more than simple etiquette.
It's not about manners or pleasantries.
It's about respecting customs and traditions
utilizing proper diplomatic formality.
For instance, if I wanted to convey my profound indignation
over the inability of a cadet to arrive on time in my class...
how exactly would I do that?
I'm so sorry, I didn't
To misunderstand the culture you're communicating with
is one of the worst mistakes an officer can make
in a first contact situation.
Seemingly incomprehensible acts can often be better understood
when one examines the situation from the opposite perspective.
And there are some worlds in which failure to adhere
to proper protocol can have the direst of consequences.
Consider yourself lucky this is not one of them.
Wouldn't you agree, Miss Zhou?
Shral didn't need to be such a scum weasel.
It's my first day.
I got lost on the way to class.
Are all the professors here so awful?
Actually, most of the profs are pretty neat.
Except Osborn. That man is a total ass.
He's also my uncle.
I guess I shouldn't have said anything.
I'm so sorry. Oh, I agree.
He is a total ass.
I'm Jax. Nice to meet you.
So where you headed now, Jax?
Back to the dorm.
I have a ton of assignments to catch up on.
Well, I'm going to hang at the Black Hole.
Want to come with? Black Hole?
Center of gravity on campus.
Lounge, bar, hangout.
酒廊 酒吧 娱乐场所
Place where you can unwind.
And if you ever wanted to hear some really bad poetry,
it's the place to do that too.
Did I mention it's a great place to meet hot guys also?
Not on my dance card this semester.
I have other obligations. You say that now.
Oh, that's Tom. He's also in Shral's class.
You'll like him.
He's not your average joystick jockey.
