Johnny disappears for a couple of minutes, then comes back looking a little grim. "Ted's phone is off, or something Peter isn't picking up, and I don't know Ted's fiance's number. I sent out some texts, but nothing back yet." You nod.
Roxane suddenly announces "Done!" and you snap back around. Darn, if only it had lasted longer. She hops down from the cockpit hatch, to show off the new optical ball, and a couple of other sensor features. "Alright, now you two pay attention, because I don't want to have to repeat myself, and this is a custom job, so there's no owner's manual." She taps the metal ball of the main 'eye' with a wrench, drawing your focus to the three lenses set in it. "Three camera set up, here. Visible light, with a high definition lens, lots of range and clarity. Also has two kind of night vision, a regular low-light starlight lens, and a proper infrared camera. This," she points to a bulb on the left side shoulder area. "Is an infrared illuminator, if there isn't enough normal light or infrared to see by. Also good for night ops, if that's your speed." She switches over the right shoulder, and points at a long rectangular box with a radiation tri-hazard on it. "X-Ray imager. Pay close attention now. There are two buttons in the cockpit, X-rays on and shutter open. Do not go irradiating people willy-nilly." She then gestures at a disk also on the shoulder, looking a bit like a giant hockey puck. "And here's my favorite. Radar set-up, ground penetrating. It'll light you up like a Christmas tree to just about any detection system worth its salt on Earth, but its great for excavation work. I also tuned up a lot of the controls and interface inside, so operation for all this should be simple."
