"Probably because your metabolism is all out of whack," Wartmon said. "Either that, or it's because you ate quite a bit of the good Dr. Frankenstoat." He shrugged, then nodded. "You two," he said to a pair of Stormtoads, "go and get some of the Kaptain's clothes. He's chafing and the owner of the uniform he's currently wearing is blushing like a schoolgirl. Move!"
The Stormtoads saluted and hurried from the lab, rushing past Kalsijj and Dr. Croaker. Croaker frowned when Kalsijj did not respond to him, and tapped him on the shoulder trying to get his attention. "Ahem!" he said, clearing his throat.
"From what we can gather," Kalsijj began. "The cause of death wasn't atmospheric decompression. We've conducted the tests over and over but the results show as negative. Qwainn is searching for the possible cause now."

"Of course it's not atmospheric decompression," Croaker said, stuffing his hands into the pockets of his lab coat. "Otherwise, we'd all have exploded. You needed the Imperial Forensics Team to tell you that?"
"Croaker, stop being so haughty," said Prof. Wartmon after excusing himself from the viewing window and walking over to Kalsijj. "You'll have to excuse Dr. Croaker," he said. "He shares my sentiments that the Toxus I Research Laboratory is the final word in bio-sciences, and he isn't very diplomatic about bragging."
He grabbed Croaker and gave him a noogie, then let him go, leaving the shorter toad scientist to stumble off dizzily. "Now then, what can I do for you, my good sir? If you've come to check on Kaptain Staan, he's doing well for the time being."

"Quite a lot, beyond the death of Frankenstoat," the scientist replied. "Most of which I've only learned secondhand so I'm unaware of the details. Brigadier Chesters is dead... not to mention the entirity of the senior support staff. Apparently, they all somehow exploded up in the control room and the Imperial Forensics Team has been called in to try and get to the bottom of things."

"Technically, I already run half of this base, but high command is all about military toads having the final sayso. Any leads thus far?" asked Wartmon curiously, although with a slight hint of sarcasm due to his dislike of the Imperial Forensics Team, while the Stormtoad whose uniform Staan had borrowed was getting dressed nearby and Dr. Croaker stood beside the Professor. "Chesters was really starting to become the one C.O. I actually liked."
