 She knew she was running late, hence her sprinting for the ship once she was on the pier. No one saw her, at least from within the 401 as it was turned outwards with the rear door closing as she drew near. Luckily the side door was still open, Teyla's boots barely touched the steps as she more or less flew in. The door hissed closed just as she found her way in. Strapping herself in quickly with a reddened embarrassed face, she called ahead to Lorne hearing his words. "We are now Major."

Evan glanced back, made sure Teyla was buckled in, made sure the rear hatch was secure, checked the coordinates.

"Thanks, Tower. Griffin is a go for takeoff."

Then to the rest of the ship, he said, "Please make sure your seats and tray tables are in the upright and locked position. Sit back and enjoy the flight. Today's weather at your destination will be fair to middling, with a dash of intergalactic emergency. We'll have a brief layover at the Mainland before we begin our in-flight entertainment."

"In-flight entertainment?" Maxwell asked.

Evan glanced at him as the ship started to rise. "You can sing, right?"

 The taking off part was easy, relatively. With the 401 at low altitude while in the vertical vectoring mode you had to be careful of the downward thrust. The ship's own turbulence had caused many a first timer to come unstuck, with two fatalities already marked up to her early prototype flights. Hence the moniker the 401 had been saddled with in those initial flights as the 'Widow Maker'. Lorne's little airline spiel gave Jordan a decent reason to undo her typical frown, her mouth curving into a half smile. She half wondered given the long flights the 401 was capable of, if in flight entertainment wasn't a bad idea. "Lorne, when we get back, remind me to send a memo back to the SGC to see if we can do something about that."

 As luck would have it, Lorne was an excellent pilot having no trouble at all getting the Griffon up. With a quick swing around the city, they headed directly for the mainland. At about 3,000 feet directly above the Athosian village. "Ready Sunniva, Kara?" She called back to the rear compartment.

 Sunniva leaned forward to look directly towards the cockpit, she gave Kara a nudge with her elbow, unfastening her belt as she did so. "We're ready." She swallowed hard, for although her race were masters of all kinds of technology, which of course included beaming. She was just a little apprehensive of the skill applied to this small ship. She had nothing to worry about though as Jordan locked onto the two of them.

 "In three, two, one." She activated the beaming node, sending the two El'Dari down to the village below in the Asgard beam.

 After they were gone she spoke to Lorne again. "It'll take five seconds to spool up the hyper drive, lock in the coordinates now please Major."

Kára followed Sunniva and took her place beside her in a guard position near the exit of the 401. Moments later they reached the coordinates for the beam down. Her leader nudged her causing her to follow suit as they took position. She waited as the beaming took them away from the 401 and to their destination.

Jon nodded at Lorne's comment about him taking the stick on the way back. He'd like that as he took his seat across from the El Dari. Watching them vanish in a beam of light, Jon wondered if he would ever see the El Dari again. Seeing as not many were nearby, it might be awhile before he would see one. It was rare.

The 401 continued on its journey toward the Dreadnought.

Riding in a ship was always fun, unless you felt your life was in danger, which it usually was.
John was satisfied with the answer the tall aliens gave him but he could tell they weren’t entirely fond of him either, perhaps he came off too strong?
