The Volgan for goodbye is "Dosvada"
He hears a Volgan speaking aboard ship and confronts him, getting his shotgun destroyed in the process.
Prince John says he is Savage's best friend. He climbs the ship's mast and discovers that 'Georgia' is a Volgan agent, but Georgi throws him off and he falls to his death. He is given a burial at sea.
He is present at Silk's burial.
He throws Silk off the mast and to his death. He later insists on given him a burial at sea.
One. Silk is killed falling from the mast.
Silk: "For heaven's sake relax, Savage - we're safe at sea!"
We hear "Dosvada" twice. "Smerska Grodnavia" is evidently a Volgan phrase indicating surprise.

Silk's death comes as a surprise, but as he has been a largely passive character throughout it doesn't necessarily have the poignancy intended.
