I kinda want there to be an ancient historian vacationing on the planet to suddenly show up and help remedy the situation. "I say, Govenor, I hear you are having a bit of trouble with have a fellow wanting people to speak English to him. I minored in English during my school days and, while a bit rusty in it myself, I would like to see how well this fellow has grasped the ancient tongue of our ancestors."
"Dammit, tell me you speak English!" "... Governor? Why is he shouting at me?" "Because he's rude. Richard, stop accosting my citizens!"
( The script just called for 'white guy', so I said 'hippie-looking fisher'. And then he ended up looking like he decided that Erebor was forever lost so he might as well go to another planet with slightly smaller reptiles. )
TRUTHFULLY SPEAKING , I REALLY LIKETHIS STORY AND HOW TOTALLY AND UNREALISTICALLY STUBBORN THIS GUY IS BEING ;
BUT AT THIS RATE IT LOOKS LIKE TAL's GONNA HAVE TO TAKE HIM UP IN A SHUTTLE-CRAFT OR SOMETHING IN ORDER TO CONVINCE THE TRICE-DAMNED FOOL THAT HE REALLY ISON AN ALIEN PLANET THAT's ALSO IN THE FUTURE TO BOOT ! . . . (it should be rather interesting to see the resulting heart-attack too ! )
