While Vlalkor was in the cockpit, Light addressed the recently awoken Varik. "Nice of you to join us. Have a nice nap? Oh, and is Kif up and about yet?"
Once Vlalkor returned and reported to the group, Light responded.
"We should send a message back offering to provide help. Then if any of the soldiers down there fire on us intentionally, it should tip us off that they have been contaminated."
"I know some of us might not want to chance being exposed to the Rakhgoul disease, but if we don't do this, we could end up waiting for the Republic to send reinforcements. We all know how thin they are spread these days. That said, what do you think, boss?" Light looked at Vlalkor, expecting him to agree that they should help.
