*Slipstream is at home in her quarters, reclining on her side along a bench and quietly plotting, as she watches one of her collection of Science-fiction videos - one of the many Star Trek movies; one featuring an Uhura rocking a pony-tail.*
I have said it before, I like science-fiction and strong female characters, but I do not just mean "strong" in terms of character - independence, spunk, moxy, all that - strength can indicate an aptitude; like the aural and oral ability of a xenolinguist. A forte. A strength.
Some strengths are shared by all Seekers, or they would not really be Seekers: speed, visual acuity, intelligence (really, even all the Skywarps).
And all Starscreams *sigh* share some strengths, different as they are from verse to verse: strategy; and some technical or scientific skills - be it dabbling in chemistry, making basic mechanical repairs, building bombs, or cloning....
And I, Seeker and clone, have all these strengths. I'm fast, sharp, smart, strategic, and possessed of some affinity for manipulating code or bare metal.
These strengths are what are supposed to make us elite air warriors and advance scouts, to enable us to go in, strike, and retreat with speed, precision, and success.
But if there is no need to "seek out new worlds" and no "missions", then what else can we do?
I suppose that answer is what we are seeking.
[ooc: Slipstream is physically in her quarters. "You" may already be there watching the video with her, or choose to politely ask for admittance, contact her virtually, or otherwise completely ignore. "You" here meaning any character, basically. Yes, Shack residents, I did know you watched the same movie recently. <3 ]
