Rereading from the beginning, like I mentioned! I just realized Aareck was shaking with his left hand. Is there a reason he did this? I can’t imagine it’s considered impolite to shake with a robotic arm, but perhaps Aareck doesn’t like to draw attention to it right off the bat? Just wondering!

HA! Thanks for re-reading!

Aareck shaking with his left hand was an oversight when I wrote the script. I wanted his real arm to be the one that got crunched a bit, so this conversation about ‘is One-15 a robot’ would get started. Since One-15 initiated the handshake, maybe he just didn’t know any better 😉

I see! That makes a lot of sense. In a world with numerous species interacting, glossing over a little faux pas like that is in itself a basic courtesy. Thanks for clearing that up!
