She turns them from 3 o'clock to 12, almost as if winding a clock in reverse.

Quarterly review, the woman clarifies through her phone after a couple of seconds, should Kirk not seem able to parse her signs. The saboteur plays it calm, studying Kirk with an unassuming gaze - but he can still pick up on the way her body tenses, the subtle glances around him as if looking for a way to slip past. Cantata's not frightened, but she's definitely a little uneasy.

"Right." Kirk does require her to use her phone. Of course he doesn't mention that he's been teaching himself sign language. He levels a stare at her for what just starts getting awkward. "How do you feel you've performed?" He asks, oddly conversationally.
