Looking up from the notebook Hornet smiles at Karen. "Alright, you've definately got all the signatures from all the right people. So let's see what you can do in a lab, I've got a couple on-going projects that should be no sweat for you." He says as he hands back the notebook and rises from his seat. "Follow me and I'll give you the two-dollar tour on the way."
"Really?!" she practically jumps out of her seat in exitement before grabbing your hand and shaking it vigorously "Oh my gawd this is so exiting Im just blown away you wont regret it I promise!" she practicaly gushes before her face turns red and she recomposes herself "Uh yeah you probably want this back." She chuckles as she lets go of your hand.
"Alright Karen, look this over and tell me what you think."
There was nothing like jumping in feet first in the deep end, so Hornet wanted to see Karen's work process up close. The reworking of his flight system was a good starting point.
"This place is amazing, I cant believe you have a working Arc reactor like the Bay City malls, its amazing." She smiles brilliantly as you enter the lab where she dons a pair of glasses--near sighted she adds--before looking over what you put in front of her.
Looking over the blue prints you're slightly stunned at the change in demeanor. One minute Karen seems like one of the over eager Hornet fans that youve had to deal with over the last few months. The next moment now that she has actual work in front of her you see her eyes looking over the plans like a computer taking in data and putting for theories as supported by said data.
"Ok lets see here..." she begins "If i read this correctly the armor uses a series of 2 cycling engines which cause each of the 4 wings to oscilate at high speed more like a dragonflies wings instead of a hornets; though in this case your anterior wings are larger then the posterior wings." she explains pointing to the larger front wings and smaller rear wings.
"that biological basis enables the wings to support your weight when shrunk to smaller size and the oscilations are what gives the flight pack its distinctive buzzing sound." she continues while moving her hand like a mini hornet and making said buzzing sound almost like a kid, before she turns and smiles that brilliant smile at you again.
"So it looks like your trying to increase oscilation for improved speed while simultaneously reducing counter vibration which is costing you maneuverability, and your looking to add an improved heat shield to the suit itself..." she pauses looking thoughtful for a moment
"Does this have to do with that Firefly person Hornet?" she asks with a worried look "I -I ask because if so you'll need more thermal insulation around the flight packs seams to keep those thermal blasters from causing to much expansion of the armors plates which could lead to engine failure and ummm..." She makes the hornet gesture again this time adding in the imitation of a crashing airplane.
Karens KS Technology roll 30 yeah shes a smarty pants.
And because of that she will be able to use her skills and your own to give you one free invention in place of the hero point Id normaly award for this.
