"If Mr. Alexander is able to survive by utilizing your equipment, then the tests would be considered an unequivocal success. His death indicates a failure."

Karter looked over the pages again, then squinted his eyes and stared off into the distance, thinking.

"Yeah, sounds good, " he said, finally. "Get up, we've got work to do."

With that, Karter stepped over the downed guest and marched, with purpose, down the hall. The mechanical arm gingerly helped Lex to his feet.

"Karter can be made to behave reasonably when given the proper incentive, " she explained.

Before Lex could respond, Karter's voice bellowed from down the hall, "Let's go! Just because I'm helping you out doesn't mean I want you hanging around any longer than you have to. Move it!"

Eight hours passed. Karter dusted off his hands after finishing the final piece of equipment. They were in the lab's repair hanger once more, loading the inventor's contributions into Lex's ship.
