The doors the small cell opening is what caused Aurther to open his eyes and jerk slightly. In the boredom that probably caused him to drift off slightly, but the new sounds was a snap back to reality. Much like feeling when you catch yourself almost falling off of a chair. He was greeted with the somewhat smiling face of a man, who looked roughly in his 40's as he brought in a bag and tossed it on the table.

"That should tide you over for a bit." He motioned to the bag, "I'm sure not up to full on Federation standards, but edible."

"A food ration pack?" Aurther walked over and picked it up to examine it. He noted that there was a slight Starfleet insignia on the package. It was older, but obviously had been taken for a Federation shipment at some point. "I think it would meet Federation standards, considering it is from the Federation."

The man gave a slight half laugh, "Well would you look at that. To be honest, I got it from someone else. I don't know where they got it from."

"It's kind of irrelevant to the current situation, you would agree?" Winters looked at the distance between the two men, and anything around him that would help him escape. The calculations went through his head in a second and they all came back the same. Death. The man had some kind of weapon on his hip. It wasn't a phaser, and best he could see from the small glint, perhaps a disruptor. He knew better then make an aggressive action towards someone who's weapons essentially had two settings, stun or kill. Often it was set to the second one, and didn't want to chance it.

"I would, and although this banter is nice. I usually work by myself, so I have a lot of time to think. I think right now is the best time just let you get back to whatever you have been doing in here for the last 6 hours..."

"Six hours?" Winters thought to himself.

"... but we still have 2 left in our journey." He paused to take a breath in and held up his hand. "Let me stop you already. No, I'm not going to give anything away, and I'm not going to tell you anything more than what I know. You can check out that PADD again, there should be some new information on it that should be able to prepare you for the next leg of your journey." Williams paused, "I hope it's not your last."

Within seconds the doors were shut, and Winters was alone again. He sat down and the table and grabbed the PADD and started to scroll. He also reached out and grabbed the ration pack. Inspecting it, he could verify that it hadn't been opened and to the best of his ability, hadn't been tampered with. The bag opened with a small his at the contents finally hit the open air again in the first time since they were packed. He poured it on the table and started to refuel and read, in hopes to understand more about what was going on.
