"No," he says, sounding confused. "I mean - yes, but also no. I do not know… I am in jail, but not jail - jail for soldiers. We had television there, very small one with satellite antenna. Mostly we get the English 'Space' channel. Captain Kirk, lots of Captain Kirk."

Of course. Captain Kirk. That makes sense.

Amie is completely lost.
