"It could be bad, if it's about what could of happened to the group with The Doctor's past life. Or it could be good, if they found out what happened to the group after. Or neither of those things specifically." Kiba shrugged. He never really thought hard about some things, unless they posed a threat to his friends...
Byleth had never felt this level of wonder before, being a passenger on such a strange voyage. A ship that flies in eternal night, powered by automated magic...had it not been for the expedition just moments prior, he would've sworn it was some fantastical dream. But no, it was all too real, and all too phenomenal to really comprehend.
The Ashen Demon spent the waiting period silently exploring the ship, taking in all he could of his surroundings. When the time came to go to the bridge, he did so, giving nothing but a formal bow to the captain. Leave the questions to the others onboard. He certainly wasn't one for conversation.

"Matter or not we'll find out either way." Kiba replied, hoping to put Five at ease a bit by making sure he walked in the middle. The Doctor's sudden arrival had shocked the not-boy but while it had surprised Kiba somewhat it wasn't exactly something he didn't expect to happen sooner or later with say, the crew maybe.
"If their numbers took quite a bit of damage could it be possible to hide for a hundred years?" Kiba asked. Wolves had been in hiding for a long time after nearly going extinct in his world, they adapted and evolved. Who's to say that the Cybermen went into hiding for a reason? Given the wreckage on the last planet, maybe these other Cybermen were stranded or for a time found something that tied into this whole mess?Soon enough all of the group had gathered unto the bridge. "Welcome," Picard remark to them. "I contacted you because we have followed the coordinates the Doctor found for us and have arrived at the solar system." Picards face looked grim as he continued. "However. According to our star charts, this particular solar system supposedly holds five planets. Two of which can sustain life. Data?"
Data was at his station and punched up the map on the screen. "As you can see according to this we should have passed a planet with two moons." The screen now went out into space and its vast emptiness.
"Nothing," Picard remark. "The probes confirmed the same going further in. There's nothing in this system. Except for one planet on the outer rims. Our true destination."
"What does it all mean?" The Doctor asked aloud. "Are the Cybermen trying to...cover their tracks? A bit overkill isn't it? It's not really their M.O."
Picard shook his head. "We don't know, but what is clear we have to hurry to find a possible cause for the planets disappearing or we will lose a valuable lead and our trail will go cold. We are going into warp to make it to the planet."
"Setting in the coordinates now, Captain."
"Make it so Mr. Data. Engage." As the Enterprise went into warp Picard turned to the group again. "For now we need to figure out what these Cybermen could possibly be hiding in this system. Any information we have found says it has no important value be it strategically, or for possible resources."
"Sounds like a perfect place to hide then," The Doctor quipped.
"Indeed...but for a hundred years?" He let the answer float in the air as the journey continued.

Not sure if he'd be much help on The Doctor's front, the Wolf in disguise remained quiet for a bit before sighing deeply."Not much, I'm afraid," Picard replied solemnly as he pointed towards the screen. "That's a Planet killer. An ancient and devastating weapon. I wrote a history report about one of them that Captain Kirk...was forced to..." He seemed to be lost in thought for a moment. "That can't be a coincidence."
"Captain?" Data asked confused.
"There has be some sort of connection." Picard pushed the emblem on his jacket. "Yellow alert, get ready for battle. Fire a photontorpedo at the Planet killer. We need to catch its attention."
The Doctor's eyes went wide. "Oh! You are going to try to steer it out of course of the final planet! Do you think we have a chance?"
"We will only get out of it with the skin of our teeth...or die trying."
"Oh no such gloominess just yet!" The Doctor started to head out of the bridge. "I'm going to the TARDIS to see if I can figure anything out. Anyone who wants can come along! More heads and minds is usually better!"
