Ahh, there we go - told you this was a Cosmos story! What's great about Artie and Gene being thrown into the Synergy milieu is not only that they've got a whole new bunch of people to annoy (an entire galaxy full of them!), but they exist under a new set of rules: they're enlisted science officers in Spacefleet - somehow - and therefore have to obey the chain of command, or face some very real consequences. This page again highlights the clear differences between Artie and Gene in terms of their personalities and approaches to life: Artie places himself very pointedly on the straight-and-narrow, adhering to the rules and treating his position and rank with respect. Gene, however.... this gig is a great deal of fun, with never-ending opportunities for adventure, and - while not deliberately creating an intergalactic incident or getting himself court-martialled - is, as ever, content to bend the rules juuuuuust short of breaking point; confident in his ability to not get in TOO much trouble. Gatecrashing a fancy party -Meh, not that big a trangression in the grand scheme of things, surely? The 'Ray and Tara' mentioned by Gene are their fellow science officers (and direct superiors), while Mr. Vorik is the Spock / Tuvok-esque lieutenant commander on board their ship, the NCSS Synergy.
