The human was moving slowly, very slowly, and doing deep breaths with each slow movement. They almost looked like moves one would do in combat, but these were too languid.. too.. relaxed. The saurian scientists aboard the ship were curious and a few even tried the movements, with varying degrees of success, and one asked the human as they paused a moment to watch their friends, what was that odd motion just now? The human smiled and said in a relaxed tone "Tai Chi".

Human Kin had set aside this time for exercise, but this did not look like more common methods of exercise known to the Alliance. Companion Thresk watched in fascination. They were fighting moves, and Thresk had seen Human Kin fight using most, if not all, of the motions involved.
It was fascinating. The rhythm of Human Kin's breathing was almost soothing, and the motions were almost hypnotic. Sometimes it was hard to stay awake as Human Kin exercised. The exercise itself was slow and graceful and Havenworlder-Friendly.
Companion Thresk joined in with the breathing, first. It must be assistive in keeping Human Kin awake. When that almost failed, Thresk attempted the motions. Human motions did not adapt well to saurian morphology. Human Kin noticed in seconds and put a stop to it.
