Chapter 7 - Act II - Part 2


[07:33:29] GM: It's been a week since the Haydonite saboteur was slain, and the damage it caused is all but repaired. the tension aboard ship is high, but the Captain and her department heads have kept the crew (including) you so busy that you don't have time to stress out.
[07:35:14] GM: Free RP as you land after another CAP flight as Pilot Fish for the trio of capital ships.
[07:36:10] CWO2 Sarah climbs out from her cockpit and looks around quickly, stretching out idly and relaxing on the deck for just a moment. She pulls her helmet off and shakes out her hair slightly, glancing around at the others.
[07:36:51] 2 LT Komillia: Can exhaustion lead to more stress than worrying?
[07:37:22] Lt. Jaron climbs out of his alpha, stretching as well. Then looks to Komillia "Some might say yes but I don't think so."
[07:37:49] 2Lt. Aylanea wanders over to the others and shrugs slightly. "Not sure. Guess we'll find out for sure."
[07:38:33] Lt. Ishida hops out of her Alpha, and like a machine, post flights it, nods to the others and trots over to flight ops.
[07:39:58] Lt. Jaron moves to follow Suki to flight ops "You know you don't have to do that anymore. Unless its something special for the Major"
[07:40:18] Lt. Ishida: Do what elltee?
[07:40:57] Lt. Ishida replies, not missing a beat in her stride.
[07:41:05] Lt. Jaron: "The report ops. Aylanea or I can do"
[07:42:04] Lt. Ishida: I see.
[07:42:54] Lt. Ishida: All the same, I'll continue. It's good practice, and I'm sure you would agree a third eye on the paperwork can only help ensure it's accuracy.
[07:44:27] Lt. Jaron nods "Very well. Just giving you a chance to ease your responsibilities"
[07:44:42] Lt. Ishida nods
[07:44:59] Lt. Ishida: My responsibilities will ease once the last Haydonite is nothing but scrap metal.
[07:45:16] Lt. Fallnya would have went strait to her quarters wanting a nice hot shower and some time away from the squad
[07:45:18] Lt. Ishida: But I appreciate your concern.
[07:45:49] Lt. Ishida looks Jaron in the eye to let him know she means what she said.
[07:45:51] CWO2 Sarah stretches a little little bit and looks around again, holding her helmet under an arm. She turns to look at the corridor. "Hm. I need a shower. Back once I'm clean."
[07:46:26] Lt. Jaron nods and smiles "Just make sure you don't over do it."
[07:46:40] Lt. Ishida nods with a slight bow
[07:46:45] Lt. Ishida: Hai taicho!
[07:47:06] Lt. Ishida calls after Sarah.
[07:47:08] Lt. Ishida: Wait up!
[07:47:35] CWO2 Sarah glances over to wait up for Suki, nodding and smiling. "Okay." She settles into a spot then.
[07:48:35] GM: Lu arrives at her quarters, it is as she had left it, except the cat food dish is half empty and the litter box is half full.
[07:48:53] Lt. Jaron does his own report with flight ops.
[07:49:24] Gage is at his security post, thinking of past events
[07:49:48] GM: Free RP means off duty time there Gage lol
[07:50:28] GM: It's also for the characters to interact as much, or as little as they want…
[07:50:51] 2Lt. Aylanea watches the techs working on the planes for a moment, her own helmet now pulled, hair pulled out so she can relax and dry it out. She glances over at the others heading to flight ops, and glances over to the others. "Hm."
[07:51:32] Lt. Ishida smiles as she catches up to Sarah, bumping her playfully as she passes her on her way into flight ops.
[07:51:51] 2 LT Komillia: Ok, I'm going to grab something to eat. Who's coming with?
[07:52:05] Lt. Ishida calls over her shoulder.
[07:52:17] CWO2 Sarah laughs a little at the bump, smiling brightly to Suki
[07:52:25] Lt. Ishida: We'll join you as soon as we've changed, say, 10 mikes?
[07:52:25] 2Lt. Aylanea looks up. "Sure."
[07:53:21] Gage is now off his shift and heads to change out of the clunky cyclone
[07:54:11] Lt. Fallnya cleans it up puts fresh litter and food in, then lays on the bed after stripping mostly naked
[07:54:20] GM: Gage drops his VR off at the armory and signs it back in, then he is freeeee.
[07:56:06] Lt. Ishida drops off her paperwork then joins Sarah in the shower for some fanservice then changes into some UEEF issue off duty garb to join Komillia in the mess hall
[07:56:06] Gage heads to clean up and eventually get some grub
[07:57:30] CWO2 Sarah smiles and enjoys the fanservice, taking an active part certainly. She slips her own off duty clothes on, and follows right along behind Suki to the mess.
[07:57:31] 2 LT Komillia is looking at the "menu". "Ok, I'll have the noodle-shaped sludge, the steak-shaped meat surprised, and the vegetable slush. And about a gallon of water to wash it down.
[07:58:14] Lt. Jaron finishes up his report as well and off to change…
[07:58:21] GM: As Gage makes his way to the mess hall there is a slight noise behind him and then a playful smack to the back of the head as a spry Anji lands next to and slightly ahead of him
[07:58:33] 2Lt. Aylanea heads to the mess, stopping for a quick shower herself. She slips in quickly though, not having fanservice to do. She slips her way towards the line, looking around.
[07:58:38] LCpl Summerwind: Sup there Alex!
[07:58:39] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( lol, silly Anji ))
[07:59:32] Gage ducks slightly from the smack "Not much Anji. Its all pretty tame since last week"
[08:00:23] LCpl Summerwind: Lucky SOB!
[08:00:42] LCpl Summerwind slugs Gage on the shoulder, (no pain, since he is still in his CVR-3)
[08:00:56] LCpl Summerwind: Been running my ass raged in the CIC.
[08:01:01] Gage: (yea, still impact)
[08:01:16] 2Lt. Aylanea slips into the line and starts getting something that isn't… too unappetizing, then looks for others.
[08:01:19] LCpl Summerwind: Anji analyze this, oh Anji, can you decode that!
[08:01:26] Gage rolls his eyes a little and sarcastically "Sounds like fun"
[08:01:35] LCpl Summerwind: Sounds like SUCK!
[08:02:02] Gage smirks "indeed. So what does a crazy, fun girl like yourself do on downtime?"
[08:02:34] 2 LT Komillia: ((She eats tacos… *ducks*))
[08:02:40] LCpl Summerwind: Swear to Pak'tu, ever since ninja bitch and loverboy poached me from my unit, I've actually had to WORK for my pay! It's insulting!
[08:03:24] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( how close to the mess are they? kekeke ))
[08:03:28] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( roflroflrofl ))
[08:03:34] LCpl Summerwind: Oh, you don't want to know that Gage! You really don't. To know that would add the prefix Accessory to your name.
[08:04:11] Gage chuckles slightly "Its not as bad as when I was with the ASC. A lot of rebuilding was to be done"
[08:04:14] LCpl Summerwind: ((lol Komi))
[08:04:30] LCpl Summerwind: Oh I don't so much as rebuild as…re-appropriate.
[08:05:17] LCpl Summerwind enters the mess and notes the occupants.
[08:05:27] LCpl Summerwind: Oh shit, speak of the devil!
[08:05:37] LCpl Summerwind: Hi occifers!
[08:05:41] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( lol ))
[08:05:41] LCpl Summerwind waves
[08:06:05] Lt. Ishida: Greetings peon.
[08:06:11] 2Lt. Aylanea looks over as she hears Anji, and blinks, laughing at that. "Hi there, Anji. You being good?"
[08:06:12] Lt. Ishida answers in stride with a smirk.
[08:06:22] CWO2 Sarah just laughs and shakes her head.
[08:06:49] Gage follows Anji and smiles as she enters, waving to the others.
[08:06:52] LCpl Summerwind laughs at Suki, conceding that one. She nods to Ay.
[08:07:01] LCpl Summerwind: As good as i can Juggs.
[08:08:03] 2Lt. Aylanea laughs a little and nods. "Good girl. Can't have you being naughty after all."
[08:08:21] LCpl Summerwind looks over at the others and snickers.
[08:08:36] LCpl Summerwind: She don't know me very well, do she?
[08:08:55] 2Lt. Aylanea laughs.
[08:09:13] 2Lt. Aylanea: "I know you're a goofball."
[08:09:21] LCpl Summerwind slides into line, grabs her grub and sits with the others.
[08:09:54] GM: This is of course met with some shakes of the head by other sin the mess halls along with rolled eyes.
[08:10:32] Lt. Ishida: Where is Fallnya
[08:10:32] Lt. Jaron soon enters and gets some food as well
[08:12:16] 2 LT Komillia pokes her food several dozen times. "You know, I think we're lab rats, and this is some sort of mutagen they're using to create supersoldiers, or at least mindless soldiers who don't complain nearly as much."
[08:12:31] CWO2 Sarah laughs a little at Anji and Ay, and hmms slightly at Suki. "doesn't look like she's here yet. Did she say she was coming to eat?"
[08:13:13] Lt. Jaron sits with the others "I don't think so."
[08:13:22] LCpl Summerwind looks over at Komi,
[08:13:46] LCpl Summerwind: Nah, but watch out, if the UEEF ever starts to feed us food paste, then you gotta worry.
[08:13:46] 2Lt. Aylanea settles in with her food quickly as well. "Well, whatever it is, it isn't working." She smiles and shrugs. "But then, I'm used to the food more than a lot of people."
[08:14:07] LCpl Summerwind looks at Ay and snerks
[08:14:19] LCpl Summerwind: Milk, it does a body good, as the humans say.
[08:14:27] 2 LT Komillia: I thought this was poorly disguised food paste.
[08:14:58] LCpl Summerwind: Oh honey, we really need to size you up. Then you'd know what real food paste is.
[08:15:42] 2Lt. Aylanea rolls her eyes at Anji, and laughs a bit towards Komi. "Ew." She glances over at Anji and laughs even more.
[08:16:26] Lt. Ishida shakes her head with a wry grin as she eats with her chopsticks.
[08:18:06] 2 LT Komillia: Nah, then I'd have to pilot a Q-Rau, and they have way too many missiles.
[08:18:21] LCpl Summerwind: What with you and your missile hate anyway?
[08:18:43] Lt. Ishida: She finds them dishonorable.
[08:18:55] LCpl Summerwind: Really?
[08:19:01] LCpl Summerwind: You're shitting me right?
[08:19:06] CWO2 Sarah laughs a little bit. "Remind me not to eat if we have to find out. I'll just have to snitch a fuel can or something and try to drink that." She rolls her eyes and hmms, thinking a moment.
[08:19:46] 2 LT Komillia: Personal combat philosophy: Missiles are weapons that require the least of amount of skill, and are therefore soulless attacks. The more skill required in combat, the more of oneself is communicated in the combat.
[08:20:11] 2 LT Komillia: And therefore a melee attack is the most soulful, the missiles and explosives, the most soulless.
[08:20:25] 2Lt. Aylanea laughs a little. "Fine for what she flies. I don't mind the missiles. But then, I'd need the cockpit controls adjusted if I tried to fly it. Or would need to learn how to read Zentraedi."
[08:20:38] LCpl Summerwind: Fuck that noise! I say if you can paste them then do it. Who care so long as you frag the toaster.
[08:20:56] LCpl Summerwind looks over at Komillia.
[08:20:59] LCpl Summerwind: Ma'am
[08:21:11] LCpl Summerwind she adds, as an after thought.
[08:21:45] 2 LT Komillia: It's your right to believe such, but the less of your own soul you pour into something, the less growth you have. Eventually, you will stagnate, and stagnation means death.
[08:22:08] CWO2 Sarah laughs just a little at Anji's after thought.
[08:22:17] LCpl Summerwind pauses then smiles uncomfortably.
[08:22:41] LCpl Summerwind: Hey! I saw that movie to! What was it, som elil green dude that talked all funny.
[08:23:00] 2 LT Komillia: Nope, it's not a Star Wars thing.
[08:23:13] 2Lt. Aylanea shrugs. "I haven't stagnated, anyway. And I use plenty of missiles. Though… they might restrict how many I can use after losing that Legios full of them."
[08:23:14] Lt. Ishida snerks suddenly, almost losing her food.
[08:23:21] 2 LT Komillia: The stagnation bit did appear in Ghost in the Shell, sort of.
[08:23:36] Gage: "was about to say that yet"
[08:23:46] LCpl Summerwind: Ghost in the what?
[08:23:59] 2 LT Komillia: Watch more anime.
[08:24:06] LCpl Summerwind: Ani who?
[08:24:24] Lt. Ishida rolls here eyes
[08:24:26] 2 LT Komillia throws a bit of the "steak" at Anji.
[08:24:30] Lt. Ishida and continues to eat.
[08:24:33] 2 LT Komillia: ((AFK for a bit, gotta take care of the parent's garbage while they are away.))
[08:24:40] Lt. Ishida: ((kk))
[08:25:43] CWO2 Sarah laughs a little at Anji and rolls her eyes. "I saw a little once. Mostly cartoons regional to Japan on earth. Often either with subtitles or badly translated and dubbed, from what I recall being told."
[08:26:34] LCpl Summerwind nods at that, but you know she hasn't a clue what you are talking about.
[08:27:39] Gage looks to Anji "I think I might have a few in my collection"
[08:29:20] CWO2 Sarah: (( or not translated at all, but even the creators of Kyattou Ninden Teyandee admit that SPC was better. ))
[08:30:18] CWO2 Sarah laughs and eats her food quietly.
[08:30:29] Lt. Fallnya sleeps sleeps sleeps
[08:30:43] Lt. Fallnya unless the cat wakes her up again
[08:31:02] 2 LT Komillia: I mostly watch the Super Robot shows, I mean if I could find a mecha with a sword, or chains, that is every bit as effective with those weapons as my Bioroid at the very least, I'd be very happy.
[08:31:40] LCpl Summerwind snorts
[08:31:56] LCpl Summerwind: Wow, you humans sure some up with some strange concepts.
[08:32:54] LCpl Summerwind: Lay of the 'Culture' Komi, to much will rot your mind.
[08:32:57] LCpl Summerwind laughs
[08:33:43] 2 LT Komillia: Funny, I think it was the lack of culture that nearly killed off our people. so I'm going to ignore your advice.
[08:33:56] LCpl Summerwind: Probably a good idea.
[08:34:01] LCpl Summerwind snickers.
[08:35:18] CWO2 Sarah glances over at Komillia then. "The problem with that is, by now, everyone has long range weapons on their mecha. Because those weapons hit harder. Depending on the kind of battle. In open combat unless you're mobbing the enemy to the point they can't shoot all targets before melee range, you'd never get into range for a sword or chain, before being fired on repeatedly."
[08:36:28] Lt. Ishida seems to be listening to this line of conversation with a bit more interest. Watching now to see what Komillia's reaction will be.
[08:38:08] 2 LT Komillia: Not ENTIRELY true there, the main reason for the switch to firearms WAS indeed due to the increase of range. But at the time the long bow was still better, the main reason for the switch is that firearms and the like require less skill to use efficiently, and therefore were easier to train in less time.
[08:38:59] 2 LT Komillia: Over time the lack or research into melee weapons because they weren't used has led to the power disparity.
[08:39:59] 2Lt. Aylanea listens quietly to the conversation.
[08:41:07] 2 LT Komillia: I mean a vibroblade could hypothetically cut just as well as a missile destroys if fully perfected. Hypothetically, anyway.
[08:41:33] Lt. Ishida looks back down to her meal, continuing to eat.
[08:41:46] CWO2 Sarah hmms at that. "Wasn't there a movie once where someone did a spectacular display of sword work, only to have the one they were facing pull up a gun and shoot them dead after the display the intended to intimidate with?"
[08:42:58] 2 LT Komillia: Again, that is more a range issue, not a power issue.
[08:43:21] 2 LT Komillia: And I admit that ranged weapons have the advantage.
[08:43:50] 2 LT Komillia: Which is why I use direct fire weapons, they at least have some skill required to use well.
[08:44:27] CWO2 Sarah nods just a little and shrugs slightly. "Point."
[08:45:14] Lt. Ishida pauses, then continues her meal after a sidewards glance to both Komillia nd Srah in turn.
[08:45:28] CWO2 Sarah glances to Suki. "hm?"
[08:45:51] 2 LT Komillia: I mean it is possible to get a melee fighter who is better than the gun, but that require the melee fighter to be a teleporter, or impossibly fast.
[08:45:52] 2Lt. Aylanea just keeps eating her food and listening.
[08:46:05] 2 LT Komillia: As in faster than the gun can fire and the projectile travel.
[08:46:33] Lt. Ishida looks over to Sarah at her utterance.
[08:46:35] Lt. Ishida: "Yes?"
[08:47:51] CWO2 Sarah shrugs just a little and offers Suki a smile. "Was just noticing you looking, wondered if something was up." She glances over to Komi then. "Hm… the problem with that is the strain put on by the teleport itself. Even at short range, there's a recovery time for the effort involved."
[08:48:40] Lt. Ishida nods then turns back to her meal, and then snerks slightly as Sarah qualifies her statement regards teleportation.
[08:49:13] 2 LT Komillia: Again, I'm not out of touch with reality, I'm just pointing out the only way I could see it working, and even I admit we'd be in the realm of the fantastic for it to even work 1/10th of the time.
[08:49:57] 2 LT Komillia: I just happen to find that sort of stuff impressive and would LIKE for reality to meet my fantasies from time to time.
[08:50:17] CWO2 Sarah hears the snerk, and laughs just a bit, shaking her head slightly. She nods at Komi then.
[08:51:41] CWO2 Sarah looks over at Suki then. "I know you got sick, I'm sorry. And… I didn't mean to wind up that far off the deck the other time."
[08:54:53] Lt. Jaron looks to the others "Does anyone have anything special planned for their down time?"
[08:55:29] 2Lt. Aylanea hmms a little and shakes her head. "Not really, no."
[08:57:29] Lt. Ishida looks at Sarah with a quizzical eye.
[08:57:39] Lt. Ishida: What are you talking about?
[08:59:35] CWO2 Sarah hmms at Jaron, glances to Suki and blushes softly, then looks back over. "Just spending some quiet time, why?" She blushes again at Suki then. "er, nevermind."
[09:00:46] 2 LT Komillia: Probably not, I can't really rebuild my collection right now, and quite frankly the three video discs I do have I've seen a dozen times since I've gotten in this unit.
[09:01:08] Lt. Ishida blushes slightly as Sarah mentions 'quality time'
[09:01:36] LCpl Summerwind notices the pair blushing and points to them both in turn with a laugh
[09:01:41] LCpl Summerwind: HA!
[09:01:48] Lt. Jaron: "Just wondering."
[09:02:11] CWO2 Sarah: (( hehehehehehe ))
[09:02:20] CWO2 Sarah: (( I said quiet time, but quality time works too. ;p ))
[09:02:21] LCpl Summerwind: Suki and Sarah in a tree K I S S I N G! First comes love, then comes marrige, then come a larvae in a baby carriage!
[09:02:24] CWO2 Sarah: (( kekekekeke ))
[09:03:32] CWO2 Sarah rolls her eyes at Anji. "Oh shush."
[09:03:35] 2 LT Komillia: Have you ever taken Biology?
[09:04:10] LCpl Summerwind looks at Komillia and laughs
[09:04:13] LCpl Summerwind: Duh!
[09:04:18] LCpl Summerwind: It's still funny!
[09:04:39] Gage smiles a bit
[09:05:47] 2 LT Komillia: A child's mock song is funny as an adult??? What planet are you from again? I'd like to avoid it.
[09:06:01] 2Lt. Aylanea just shakes her head a little bit at Anji. "Goofball."
[09:06:57] Lt. Ishida turns beet red.
[09:07:42] Lt. Ishida then snickers slightly
[09:08:01] Lt. Ishida looks over at Komillia.
[09:08:36] Lt. Ishida: Immature as it is, and it is. If we cannot laugh at each other and engage in trivial frivolities, then we are no better then our enemy.
[09:08:59] 2 LT Komillia: I agree, but not everyone has the same since of humor.
[09:09:03] CWO2 Sarah blushes a little bit as well, through this, though not as much.
[09:09:09] 2 LT Komillia: One size does not fit all.
[09:09:32] Lt. Ishida nods.
[09:10:06] Cosmos: ((sneaks in, makes sure Anji's hair is in pigtails than ties kick me signs to them, before sneaking back to her own universe.))
[09:10:17] 2Lt. Aylanea nods a little bit. "Asides, I won't consider it a bad thing anyway. Keeping each other company keeps them occupied when off duty."
[09:10:20] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( rofl ))

[09:11:49] GM: Another few days go past, and the tam finds themselves on CAP once again, ahead of the Capital ships by about 200 miles. The 'weather' is turbulent. There is a lot of chop.
[09:15:05] Lt. Jaron radios "Keep space between us, don't want any collisions"
[09:15:16] 2Lt. Aylanea nods quickly. "Acknowledged."
[09:16:09] GM: ((I figure three Legios, then, Suki/Sarah, Jaron/Lu, and Ay/Beta
[09:16:18] CWO2 Sarah: (( kk ))
[09:16:34] 2 LT Komillia: "Roger."
[09:16:39] Lt. Ishida: Roger that, heavy chop ahead.
[09:17:01] GM: Roll Piloting
[09:17:28] GM: ((If any of you have seen that episode of BSG where they are in teh nebula hearding ships then something like that sans the radiation))
[09:17:57] Aylanea: [1d100] => [8] = (8)
[09:18:01] 2 LT Komillia: [1d100] => [92] = (92) vs 85
[09:18:21] 2 LT Komillia: ((destroys the dice before they can act up.))
[09:18:25] Lt. Jaron: [1d100] => [72] = (72)
[09:18:27] Aylanea: (( suck and fail. lol ))
[09:18:32] Lt. Jaron: vs 84
[09:19:04] Lt. Ishida: [1d100] => [70] = (70)
[09:19:46] GM: Komillia, your non aerodynamic craft is not taking to these winds very well.
[09:20:00] GM: Roll to recover
[09:20:12] 2 LT Komillia: [1d100] => [23] = (23) vs 85
[09:20:19] GM: Woot
[09:20:36] GM: A gust tumbles you, but you are able to right yourself.
[09:20:59] GM: Roll three more piloting rolls each
[09:21:06] Lt. Ishida: [3d100] => [76,93,50] = (219)
[09:21:53] 2 LT Komillia: [1d100] => [72] = (72) vs 85

[09:21:56] 2 LT Komillia: [1d100] => [80] = (80) vs 85
[09:22:18] GM: Suki roll a recovery for roll number two
[09:22:24] Lt. Ishida: [1d100] => [33] = (33)
[09:22:24] Aylanea: (( hehehehehe ))
[09:22:53] Aylanea: [1d100] => [65] = (65) vs. 87% (specialty Alpha)
[09:22:54] Aylanea: [1d100] => [33] = (33) vs. 87% (specialty Alpha)
[09:22:56] Aylanea: [1d100] => [46] = (46) vs. 87% (specialty Alpha)
[09:24:41] GM: Jaron?
[09:25:28] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( good thing it's except for radiation ))
[09:25:54] Lt. Jaron: [1d100] => [54] = (54)
[09:25:54] Lt. Jaron: [1d100] => [16] = (16)
[09:25:54] Lt. Jaron: [1d100] => [82] = (82)
[09:28:24] GM: For 30 minutes you battle the winds and turbulence. You scarcely have time to look out side your cockpits as you fly by your instruments, relying on them to keep you level in the tractless pea soup you are flying through
[09:29:20] GM: First Jaron, then Ay and then Suki/Sarah, followed shortly afterward by Komillia fly on. Percs
[09:29:37] 2 LT Komillia: [1d20] => [14] = (14)
[09:29:51] CWO2 Sarah watches instruments and course for any potential problems, back in the Beta. [1d100] => [57] = (57) RSI vs. 70%, [1d100] => [33] = (33) space nav vs. 75… (was typing that before percs asked)
[09:29:52] Lt. Ishida: [1d20+3] => [18,3] = (21)
[09:29:54] CWO2 Sarah: [1d20+1] => [13,1] = (14)
[09:30:02] 2Lt. Aylanea: [1d20] => [20] = (20)
[09:30:45] Lt. Jaron: [1d20+2] => [3,2] = (5)
[09:30:51] 2 LT Komillia: ((Ay hears the whispers of oblivion…))
[09:32:17] 2Lt. Aylanea blinks, and blinks again, and shakes her head. "Wow… I'm seeing something up ahead… haven't seen that in a long time it seems like…"
[09:32:44] Lt. Ishida notices and gasps.
[09:32:56] Lt. Jaron looks around "What is it, I cant see"
[09:33:29] GM: The rest in turn notice, first the lack of turbulence, then clouds, then, the clear space ahead of you, stars as far as the eye can see.
[09:34:14] CWO2 Sarah oooohs. "That's a pretty sight."
[09:34:23] GM: Looking around you can see the tell tales of nebula gasses dissipating from your crafts 'slipstream'
[09:34:43] Lt. Jaron radios "Homeplate, we've found a clearly or the end of the nebula"
[09:34:48] Lt. Jaron: (clearing)
[09:34:54] 2 LT Komillia cheers at leaving the nebula.
[09:35:14] GM: ((end, if it was a clearing you wouldn't be able to see stars and open…black…space.
[09:35:52] Lt. Ishida: Yata! Homeplate! Hitman Three confirms!
[09:36:51] GM: Behind you the awe inspiring sight of two Shimakaze class battle crusiers exiting into open space followed by a Tou Redir greets you.
[09:37:38] CWO2 Sarah sighs happily and stretches, settling into her seat.
[09:37:44] GM: You realize this is the first time in nearly a month you have seen open space.
[09:38:41] 2 LT Komillia: YAY! Maybe now we can go someplace interesting and maybe even get resupplied properly.
[09:39:19] CWO2 Sarah nods just a little. "If we're lucky, the Phoenix is out or will be out soon, as well."
[09:40:51] Lt. Jaron smiles as well and glad to be out "So where did we come out at?"
[09:41:20] 2 LT Komillia: The anal end of nowhere?
[09:41:52] CWO2 Sarah looks around, tries to think about where it might be, and tries to evaluate relative position to anything, trying to call a map up on her VT. [1d100] => [4] = (4) space navigation
[09:42:21] GM: On the bridges of the Battle cruisers cheers go up. On the Yukikaze, the Captian allows for some backslapping before she calls her crew back to their stations. Sensor sweeps are conducted and the Phoenix is not located.
[09:42:34] CWO2 Sarah: (( eep ))
[09:43:15] GM: Unable to scan any enemy vessels either, the Captain orders the ships back into the nebula and launches recon birds at regular intervals.
[09:44:00] GM: After a few more days, the Captain makes a decision. The Yukikaze and the wounded Tou Redir will fold to Karbarran space while the Miyuki waits for the Phoenix.
[09:44:53] GM: All wounded and sick personnel from the Miyuki are transferred to the Yukikaze and all reserves of food, fuel and ammunition are sent to the Miyuki.
[09:45:41] GM: Free RP for a bit during the transfer.
[09:46:40] CWO2 Sarah: (( we all drafted into helping transfer stuff? ))
[09:46:42] CWO2 Sarah: (( kekeke ))
[09:47:17] Lt. Jaron: "they must have hit a big storm or something to have lost contact"
[09:47:46] 2 LT Komillia: Assuming they are still in one piece.
[09:48:03] 2 LT Komillia: I mean how many times did we come close to kicking the bucket?
[09:48:17] CWO2 Sarah sighs a little and glances to Komillia. "That's…what I'm worried about."
[09:48:22] Lt. Ishida: Stow that bilge Maeless.
[09:48:28] Lt. Ishida huffs.
[09:48:55] CWO2 Sarah hmms. "But we know they were all right at least, we got the recon flight from them at one point…" She considers that.
[09:49:04] Lt. Ishida: Until we hear otherwise the Phoenix is combat effective.
[09:52:03] Lt. Jaron: "Agreed Suki. Lets just make sure the transfer goes smoothly"
[09:52:39] CWO2 Sarah nods just a little bit.
[09:54:58] GM: That it for the RP?
[09:55:07] 2Lt. Aylanea just tries to help with the moving, herself, not getting involved.
[09:55:09] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( hm ))
[09:55:15] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( *peeks around* ))
[09:55:32] GM: Guess so
[09:56:47] Lt. Jaron: (sorry was afk…..yea no more RPing here)
[09:56:52] 2 LT Komillia: ((yeah, I mean I'm kinda stuck on things to say and do at this point…))
[09:57:05] GM: Fair enough
[09:57:39] GM: The transfer is achieved after some hours and the crew is put on Red Alert as the two ships leave the Nebula.
[09:58:32] GM: The Yukikaze contacts the Karberran homeworld, informing them of their arrival and once conformation via fold communication is received the ship is locked down for the fold.
[09:59:39] GM: The fold initiates and the bridge informs the crew that they will be in fold space for upwards of 4 hours.
[10:00:27] CWO2 Sarah sits through the fold worrying about Suki's stomach issues.
[10:01:01] Lt. Ishida has taken her Dramamine but still looks miserable.
[10:01:16] Lt. Jaron reads some of his Tirolian book for the next few hours.
[10:01:21] CWO2 Sarah keeps arms wrapped around Suki to comfort her.
[10:01:40] Gage is at his post
[10:02:34] GM: About thirty minutes to defold and the call to alert stations comes over the PA
[10:03:23] GM: Thirty minutes later the ship drop out of fold.
[10:03:29] That's the Tab key, Dave
[10:03:49] 2 LT Komillia meditates.
[10:04:09] GM: The ship goes to Yellow Alert some 5 minutes later.
[10:04:23] Lt. Jaron puts his book away and waits
[10:04:30] GM: All pilots are called to their respective ready rooms.
[10:05:05] 2 LT Komillia is in the ready room, suited up, upon being called.
[10:05:08] 2Lt. Aylanea hurries to the ready room.
[10:05:26] Lt. Jaron heads that way
[10:05:30] CWO2 Sarah heads there all suited up, with Suki.
[10:07:13] Maj. Kavashera: Have a seat ladies, ladies, ladies, and gentleman
[10:08:03] GM: You all see the officers and NCO's off the 33rd are also present
[10:08:11] GM: ((off = of))
[10:08:52] Lt. Jaron looks around and does so
[10:09:11] Maj. Kavashera: Okay, defold briefing, and after we are done, you fighter type hop into your birds, I'll tell you why in a minute.
[10:10:09] 2Lt. Aylanea blinks and listens up.
[10:10:56] Maj. Kavashera: Okay, the short of it, we are in Karberran Space, in orbit over Karberra. We entered fold on November 15th. Due to time dilation, we have defolded November 30th. The ships clock has been updated, please be sure to update your personal electronic devices.
[10:12:38] Maj. Kavashera: The Captain has placed us on Yellow Alert. All UEEF and KDF craft are at that level, so, we're just following the crowd on that one. Pilot, be advised there is a dogfight about 500 klicks from here. KDF and UEEF forces have it in hand, but the Cap'n want you on standby just in case.
[10:13:41] Maj. Kavashera: As it stands, we are to deliver the Tou and her cargo to KDF Space Dock 5, after which we will rendezvous with the Trinity Docks.
[10:14:11] Maj. Kavashera: Once docked, all 33rd personnel will debark for transfer ground side.
[10:15:39] Maj. Kavashera: Seems that the Haydonites have landed forces along the equatorial regions, and while the UEEF dirt-side have them well surrounded, we're going down to play 'Force Multiplier' a lot of the brass want to see if the bold new experiment of a Raider unit works as well in a gravity well as it does in space.
[10:16:53] Maj. Kavashera: So, pilots to your craft, we should know in the next five minutes if you'll be needed. NCO's get with your men, get them ready for debarkation. Any questions?
[10:17:52] Maj. Kavashera looks around the room.
[10:17:52] Lt. Jaron: "No sir"
[10:18:02] Maj. Kavashera: All right then, DIS-missed!
[10:18:24] GM: The 5 minutes come and go and no call to launch is made.
[10:19:17] Lt. Jaron waits patiently
[10:19:51] 2 LT Komillia: "Ok, no west for the weary." Komi notes as she sents in her Bioroid then decides to see if the outgoing-radio signal was off.
[10:19:58] 2Lt. Aylanea sits in her cockpit all quiet and waiting.
[10:20:23] CWO2 Sarah sits in hers as well, watching and listening for any launch calls intently.
[10:21:41] GM: The Yuki escorts the Tou to the KDF dock, and you can see out the windows the massive space facility with multiple KDF ships in dock and nearby
[10:22:19] GM: Morale lifts as you see a great gathering of friendly shipping and fighters seemingly everywhere
[10:22:38] GM: Percs
[10:22:46] Lt. Jaron: [1d20+2] => [15,2] = (17)
[10:22:48] CWO2 Sarah: [1d20+1] => [1,1] = (2)
[10:23:00] Lt. Jaron: (bear squirrel?)
[10:23:02] 2Lt. Aylanea: [1d20] => [16] = (16)
[10:23:03] 2 LT Komillia: [1d20] => [6] = (6)
[10:23:16] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( nervous Invid not noticing things. ))
[10:23:20] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( kekeke ))
[10:24:10] GM: Jaron and Ay, you notice a few capital ships bearing UEEF markings, very slender, with massive guns.
[10:24:49] GM:
[10:24:54] GM: ((Hayes Class))
[10:26:28] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( ooh ))
[10:27:23] 2 LT Komillia: ((heh))
[10:27:49] GM: It is not hard to see the myriad Karberran ships in orbit (the Karberran ship tab)
[10:28:04] 2Lt. Aylanea peeks out at the ships and ooohs just a little, seeing the UEEF ones, looking out at them interestedly.
[10:28:12] 2 LT Komillia: ((Where;d you get the pics for those anyway?))
[10:28:26] GM: ((the Hayes? or the Karberrans?))
[10:29:04] Lt. Jaron: "Defintely interesting things happening here"
[10:30:00] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( the Karbarran ones have a note on where they're from, I think the Hayes is from a book of Mospeada pre-production art and stuff ))
[10:30:27] GM: ((nod))
[10:31:12] Lt. Ishida looks at all the shipping and blinks
[10:31:20] Lt. Ishida: I will have much to read later.
[10:32:19] CWO2 Sarah stays quiet as she looks at all the ships, glancing around at the Karbarran ones mostly, expression curious.
[10:32:56] Lt. Jaron: "One of the Hayes ship has a dock above it…..looks something like an SDF"
[10:33:17] Lt. Ishida: [1d20+3] => [9,3] = (12)
[10:33:28] Lt. Ishida: I see it.
[10:34:00] 2 LT Komillia: [1d20] => [8] = (8) PERC, to see if anything looking like new mecha can be seen.
[10:34:02] Lt. Ishida: Liberator Class!
[10:34:30] GM: With that roll, no, not to say there isn't just that you didn't see any
[10:34:56] 2 LT Komillia: ((AFK))
[10:35:42] GM: Alongside the Karberran and UEEF ships you also see Tirolian and a few Zentraedi ships.
[10:36:30] CWO2 Sarah looks out again quietly, curious about all of it, even if she's nervous. [1d20+1] => [14,1] = (15)
[10:36:54] Lt. Ishida notices the trepidation
[10:37:03] Lt. Ishida: Whats wrong Sarah-chan?
[10:39:20] CWO2 Sarah shakes her head a little bit at Suki, speaking quietly. "Don't worry about it." Her eyes, noticeably at this point, are blue again for the moment, though.
[10:39:23] 2 LT Komillia continues scanning for any machine that looks interesting. [1d20] => [16] = (16)
[10:40:00] Lt. Ishida isn't convinced at Sarah's dismissal.
[10:40:06] Lt. Ishida: Very well, we will talk about this later.
[10:44:13] CWO2 Sarah nods just a little bit. "Just me being initially unnerved, that's all. I was on Tirol as well, at first."
[10:44:16] GM: Komillia, you see a few odd craft now as the Yukikaze approaches the Trinity Docks (perc on that for Suki, Sarah, and Lu) One is a battloid that is rather bulky bearing KDF markings but looks UEEF made. (I'll have pic and stats up on it in a few days) as well as obviously 'homegrown' space fighters.
[10:45:28] Lt. Ishida: As I said, we will talk about it later.
[10:45:56] CWO2 Sarah sighs, hushes up then. "Yes ma'am."
[10:46:53] Lt. Ishida: [1d20+3] => [5,3] = (8)
[10:47:13] GM: Sarah a perc roll if you wish, otherwise don't worry about it
[10:47:25] CWO2 Sarah: [1d20+1] => [13,1] = (14)
[10:47:40] GM: Sarah, the docks you are approaching look familiar.
[10:48:49] CWO2 Sarah blinks at the approaching dockyard and gestures at it. "Isn't that the dock that was around Tirol initially? Nice to see it's still up and going."
[10:49:14] Lt. Ishida: Is it?
[10:49:31] Lt. Ishida: Good eye, yes. I think it is.
[10:50:31] CWO2 Sarah nods just a little bit and smiles. "Yep… probably already looking at us coming and saying "them again?" or something like that, if they remember us."
[10:50:50] Lt. Ishida: If it is, then we should be honored guests.
