For 2 million years (give or take), Rog has been a resident of an alien facility out in deep space - A place known as a Guardian ruin ( of which there are a vast number ) - A far cry to the barely evolved monkeys who he now finds himself among.
He is amazed that they are actually able to travel in space when they can't even fix their own ships - such rudimentary technology. He's even more surprised of their reaction when he fixes things easily.
He's patient with the monkeys though, even though they can't speak his language - they are trying. They've even introduced him to a food source he likes - although it took a few foods he didn't like before they managed to find one that he did.
