At the inquiry that Rommie posed, Riker was about to go into detail about the Federation itself but found his voice failing him as Captain Picard arrived. Riker glanced to his friend before they began to discuss the origins of the pod itself. The man began to explain what had happened leading up to their escape. It was a very wild tale and while he had no reason to question its validity, he was still a bit uncertain as to whether or not The Enterprise was where they assumed it to be. Had their run-in with the anomaly somehow altered their position? Was that possible? It was a puzzling situation.
Soon the door slid back to reveal a woman with long blond hair. "I apologize for being late." She gave everyone a quick look before she found a seat. Nex was picking up a lot of emotions, most of which were originating from those of Riker and Picard. Nex turned her gentle gaze to the newest two additions to the ship. She picked up a sense of urgency from the male but found herself unable to connect with the woman, which wasn't a situation Betazoid often found themselves in. There could be some technological interference but it was almost like Rommie was emotionless.
There was also some hint of Rhade feeling anxious.
"They're not lying." She said, only having heard the last bits of their story. "They've had to endure a lot of hardship in a very short amount of time. Nex folded her arms, looking to Picard still. "I understand the ambivalence of their story, Captain. They do not pose a danger to us so I think it is within reason to assist these two in finding home, wherever that truly is." Nex told him. She was curious about the woman though and knew she may need to approach the topic with great caution.
Riker wasn't entirely convinced and still found these two to be very odd and out of place. "Could you tell us more about this Commonwealth of yours? It's not a section or faction we've heard of." Riker said. He wasn't sure they could locate a place they had never heard of but if Rommie was skilled with locations and the reading of stars, it would prove helpful to have her work alongside Data or himself to help settle on coordinates.
"I would be happy to show you both to your quarters if you need to rest and clean up." Nex commented. "We've also got a great place to grab a drink if you're in need of that as well." She smirked lightly. From what she could infer, the two weren't romantically involved so she had to assume it might be better to give them separate quarters that were close in proximity. "Consider me your personal liaison while we sort everything out, anything you need: I'm your gal." She offered them.
