Interlude 5 - Part 2


[07:31:44] GM: You are aboard the bridge now. Modern ship systems such as life support, internal gravity walk hand in hand with archaic by comparison forms of navigation and propulsion
[07:33:36] GM: the ships controls are arrayed, two to the front and to facing the aft, with the navagation pedestal in the center suspended over a transparent dome (now opaque with age) above and below. The domes have grids and numerals etched into them
[07:35:21] Lt.Jaron looks to the Ensign and points to the sphere "Was this the navigation controls?"
[07:35:56] Chorelle: Looks like it…
[07:36:18] Chorelle: At the very least, their version of 'central plot'
[07:36:33] CWO2 Sarah peeks at the navigation system, raising her eyebrows over it and pondering it. "Hmm… interesting. Wonder where they thought they were going." She tries to look through the dome, and dust it off to see if it helps.
[07:37:56] GM: Sarah, the dust all seems to be on the outside. Upon further inspection of the dome you can see grease pen wriring, horribly faded and small pegs inserted into toiny holes with string attached
[07:38:15] Lt. Fallnya settlesbehind the navigation pedistal and tries to bring it online
[07:38:23] Lt.Jaron: "Could you tell where their last known locations was or destination?"
[07:38:40] GM: rather, some from of metallic twine (something that wouldn't sag or expand without having to be made taut repeatedly
[07:38:43] Lt. Fallnya: (ooops my bad
[07:38:51] Lt.Jaron: "Shouldn't touch anything yet"
[07:39:05] 2 LT Komillia: Makes you wonder what things would have been like without the Masters.
[07:39:21] GM: Lurana, you look for controls, and by and large, the navigation pedastle is totally manual,
[07:39:50] CWO2 Sarah looks at the pegs inserted, and tries to figure from that, knowing she won't be able to read the grease pen writing. ([1d100] => [17] = (17) Space Navigation vs. 75%)
[07:40:03] Lt. Fallnya: [1d100] => [35] = (35) vs navigation: space 58%
[07:40:04] CWO2 Sarah: (( well, that and the stars on it ))
[07:40:19] Lt. Fallnya tries to descern its last destination possibly
[07:40:25] Lt.Jaron looks to the ensign for a reply then to Sarah as she looks at the sphere
[07:40:48] GM: Sarah, and Lu, you both can see the course and understand it, however, you have now context. You do not know the 'start point' of the 'leg'
[07:40:56] GM: now = no
[07:41:52] CWO2 Sarah hmms a little bit. "Well, if someone read the writing, so we knew where the start point was, I can tell the course…" She looks up and shrugs slightly, glancing to Chorelle.
[07:41:59] Lt. Fallnya: "Old navigation… even by zentradi standards… wich was just point and go…. Litterally"
[07:42:18] GM: percs you two (jLu and Sarah)
[07:42:43] CWO2 Sarah: [1d20+1] => [6,1] = (7)
[07:43:52] GM: Jess?
[07:45:02] GM: Perc roll Jess?
[07:45:39] GM: Jeron the ensign did reply, that was Chorelle)
[07:46:00] Lt. Fallnya: [1d20] => [13] = (13)
[07:46:29] GM: Lu, you notice some tubles nearby on a rack, they look like chart rolls.
[07:46:36] GM: tubes
[07:48:08] Lt. Fallnya steps over to the tubes, "I think these might be their charts… to bad i dont read triolian
[07:48:34] Chorelle floats over
[07:48:59] GM: remember, no stepping or walking, you are in Zero gee
[07:49:13] Lt. Fallnya: (err wouldent we have magnetic boots?
[07:49:31] GM: might damage the hull, remember this thing is an egg
[07:49:47] 2 LT Komillia is floating with her feet pointing to what would normally be the ceiling. "Why are you all upside down?"
[07:50:14] GM: roll space nav Sarah and Lu
[07:50:21] Chorelle: [1d100] => [78] = (78)
[07:50:27] Lt. Fallnya: [1d100] => [5] = (5)
[07:50:28] CWO2 Sarah peeks at the chart. [1d100] => [46] = (46)
[07:50:31] Lt. Fallnya: (critical pass
[07:54:03] GM: You are able to, with Chorelle translating determine that the lions share of the maps are of the fantoma system, as well as the nearby colonies, about 10 of them. (this compared to the height of the Masters Empire where many hundrads of colonies were established) highlighted are trade routes, navigational hazards, and other landmarks. Two of the maps deal with the nebula. One shows the space leading up to it, much of it uncharted, (by these maps) and another shows a course layed leading into the nebula, notable is the Tirolian equivilant to "here there be dragons" written on the area of space representing the nebula and beyond
[07:56:22] Lt. Fallnya: "I should have been a ship navigator…"
[07:56:42] Lt. Ishida giggle snorts
[07:56:53] Lt. Ishida : Hai anjin-san
[07:57:09] Lt. Fallnya: "Ishida you d that again im gona take carrie away from you."
[07:57:20] Lt. Fallnya: (err i mean Sarah
[07:57:26] Lt.Jaron: "We can use that to make our way finally through the nebula if its the one we are crossing"
[07:57:57] Lt. Ishida : Do what?
[07:57:58] 2 LT Komillia: [1d10] => [4] = (4)
[07:58:25] CWO2 Sarah: (( now, to understand, it showed a plot /in/ but not /through/ right? ))
[07:58:28] 2 LT Komillia: Don't we still have a ship to fix first?
[07:58:32] Lt. Fallnya yanks Sarah to her side and makes motions to ishida like shes gona take her away from ishida
[07:58:53] GM: Correct Sarah
[07:59:01] CWO2 Sarah: (( heehee, okay ))
[07:59:06] Lt.Jaron: (ok)
[07:59:34] CWO2 Sarah almost snickers at the marking for the nebula. "Hm. Must have been trying to explore it, not realizing just how dangerous it was." She acks as she's grabbed, then.
[08:00:22] Lt.Jaron: "True but our tech might be able to use it to traverse."'
[08:00:36] Lt. Fallnya: "To bad they never made it through the nebula it that was their original intention, would have been nice to know of any celestial bodies a head."
[08:01:34] Chorelle looks at Lu and smiles.
[08:01:56] 2Lt. Aylanea coughs softly. "I thought the map the Karbarrans gave us was mostly complete, at least."
[08:02:05] Lt. Fallnya: it = if it
[08:02:12] Lt. Fallnya: or rather just if
[08:02:54] Chorelle: We know exactly what on the other side Ell Tee. 5 ly beyond is a Karberren outpost, 15 ly after that is series of asteroid fields. And then you enter the karberran hegemony, then it's another 600 ly stright shot to karberra.
[08:03:29] Chorelle: That are of space has been well charted for the last eight hundrad years
[08:03:31] Lt. Fallnya: "Right but there could be a celestial body here in the nebula
[08:03:33] Chorelle: are = area
[08:03:44] Chorelle: Ahh, I see.
[08:03:55] Lt.Jaron nods "Agreed Lurana"
[08:04:29] Lt. Ishida : I'm going to look for the Captains rutters.
[08:04:38] Lt. Ishida floats off.
[08:05:02] CWO2 Sarah watches Ishida go, raising her eyebrows just a little and smiling.
[08:06:12] GM: anything the characters want to do, look for etc?
[08:07:22] 2Lt. Aylanea looks around the bridge again, floating along and looking at all the consoles curiously. "Wonder where the logs would be, if there are any." She glances around. "Or if it'd be all on computer, so inaccessible."
[08:07:29] Lt. Fallnya wouldent suppose this thing had weapons
[08:07:52] GM: The vessel has what looks like a weapons station.
[08:07:52] 2 LT Komillia goes looking for the armory.
[08:08:02] 2 LT Komillia: [1d20] => [8] = (8) PERC
[08:08:09] Lt.Jaron looks to the Ensign "Could is be possible to get this ship powered?"
[08:08:15] GM: Komillia you find the armory rather easily
[08:08:18] Lt. Fallnya floats over to the weapons station, and tries to see what it had.
[08:09:00] CWO2 Sarah looks at all the floating around, and wanders to find Suki, looking at the ship in general as she does.
[08:09:20] Lt. Fallnya: [1d100] => [70] = (70) vs 68% to ID weapons listed on the Console
[08:09:27] CWO2 Sarah: (( heh heh heh ))
[08:09:31] Lt. Fallnya: (fail by 2 freeking %
[08:09:39] GM: Lurana, the ship seemed to be armed with two turreted laser cannons, incredibly low powered by todays standard (read SDC) and it looks like they were intended to clear navigational hazards.
[08:10:21] Lt. Fallnya: "Space Debree Blasters… Its a wonder this ship wasnt attacked."
[08:11:02] 2 LT Komillia looks for anything odd, like melee weapons. [1d20] => [7] = (7) PERC
[08:11:08] Lt. Fallnya floats over to jaron and pokes his suit with a sad look its betwen her and him
[08:11:30] GM: Komilla, the weapons locker hold a total of 6 rifles. (Laser) 5 Pistols (laser) a collection of swords and polarms. (e-clips of all weapons and a charger) as well as archaic armor (half plate for all intents and purposes)
[08:11:53] Lt.Jaron turns toward Lurana "Whats up Lurana?"
[08:12:02] Lt. Fallnya: (is assuming those rifles and pistols are SDC
[08:12:09] GM: (correct)
[08:12:35] Lt. Fallnya: "Kinda sad the first time were in Zero G, that we cant try something" *she makes a sugjestive wink'
[08:12:55] 2Lt. Aylanea glances over to Lurana. "Actually, depending on how things were in space before the wars, not that surprising. Who would attack it out in space?"
[08:13:05] Lt.Jaron smiles
[08:14:07] GM: Sarah you cath up to Suik as she floats up a ladder way to the upper deck and then into a cabin
[08:14:13] 2 LT Komillia picks up a polearm and tests it out.
[08:14:13] Lt. Fallnya: "Umm, look how Humans reacted to my kind when we first appeard."
[08:15:39] Lt. Fallnya: (*Swing, SMASH!*)
[08:15:42] GM: Komilia, it's a well balanced weapon, compact for it's type. but you cant tell much more about composition or strength, especially in Zero G
[08:17:07] 2 LT Komillia: "Now this could be good, never mind HTH in 0G sucks."
[08:17:13] Lt.Jaron radios "Suki, any luck?"
[08:17:42] Lt. Ishida : Hai, I have found the Captains quarters.
[08:17:54] Lt. Ishida : And the captain.
[08:18:15] Lt.Jaron replies "Coming" and begins to head that way
[08:21:25] 2Lt. Aylanea glances over to Lurana. "The SDF-1 fired the first shot, without human intervention. The only way to interpret that indicates a militarized potential threat from go. That's what caused any other response in panic." She shrugs.
[08:21:36] 2Lt. Aylanea follows along for the captain's quarters as well.
[08:22:23] 2 LT Komillia tags along.
[08:23:12] Lt. Fallnya stays with the ensgin
[08:23:20] GM: Inside the Captains quarters: The room is small, maybe 20x20, there are some rugs on the floor and a wooden desk. a sleeping space is built into one wall and a lavtory into the other, a closet occupies the third. a large window occupies the cieling.
[08:23:51] GM: a pair of chairs float in front of the desk (the desk being bolted down)
[08:24:35] Lt.Jaron: "Find anything?"
[08:24:55] GM: books, clothing and other bric-a-brac float inside as well. The Captain is at the desk, a pen in his hand and Suki gingerly handling a book nearby.
[08:25:20] Lt. Ishida : Might be a ships log or persoanl journal, I cant read it.
[08:26:05] Chorelle nods to Lurana,
[08:26:17] Chorelle: They'll likely need a translator.
[08:26:25] Chorelle floats to join the others.
[08:26:33] Chorelle: [1d100] => [13] = (13)
[08:28:29] GM: Chorelle is able to determine that the book is indeed the ships log. The last entry saying "I have lead my men to their doom, our provisions are gone, or course is fouled. The nebula is expansive. Our mainspar has defied repair and we have drifted for weeks within this pocket.
[08:29:51] CWO2 Sarah winces just a little bit at that and shakes her head. "ouch."
[08:30:19] GM: To any that may read this, know that I, Eratosthenes of Tonvella braved the stars, and met my end within them a content man. My only regret was to never agin set foot upon the soil of my birth.
[08:31:36] GM: The Amalgast was a fine ship, and now, my final resting place. P'tok bless all those that sailed within her.
[08:32:34] 2 LT Komillia: Ok, anything interesting in the journal besides the fact he was a harmless explorer?
[08:33:32] Lt. Ishida : I would think it would all be interesting
[08:34:29] Chorelle: [1d100] => [46] = (46)
[08:34:49] Chorelle: Hmm, well, this is useful…this entry here,
[08:35:12] 2Lt. Aylanea nods a little at that. "In a historical sense, anyway…" She blinks at Chorelle then. "What is it?"
[08:35:16] Chorelle: It seems that hthis regoin of the nebula is what you would call on Earth a Sargasso Sea.
[08:35:42] Lt.Jaron listens
[08:36:41] 2Lt. Aylanea listens as well.
[08:37:02] CWO2 Sarah blinks at that. "er?"
[08:37:20] GM: Navigators may roll
[08:38:24] Lt. Fallnya: [1d100] => [67] = (67)
[08:38:26] Lt. Fallnya: (fail
[08:39:35] CWO2 Sarah: [1d100] => [48] = (48)
[08:40:09] CWO2 Sarah: (( nav 79, nav space 75, pass either way ;p ))
[08:40:30] CWO2 Sarah: (( but then, also pretyy foreign ))
[08:40:40] CWO2 Sarah: (( pretty, even ))
[08:41:23] GM: the sragasso sea is well know to navigators as an area of the Atlantic ocean surrounded by currents. these currents depoist much of what they carried into this area. it was alos an area with a lot of seaweed…
[08:42:28] Chorelle: Well, that certianly explains that mess out there.
[08:44:46] GM: Anything else the characters want to do aboard?
[08:45:08] 2 LT Komillia: ((Not really.))
[08:45:19] GM: Souviners?
[08:45:21] GM: wow
[08:45:23] GM: okay
[08:45:40] CWO2 Sarah pauses at that and nods. "So there wasn't one big battle. Just things that drifted in there separately, over the ages." She nods just a little at that. "Definitely explains a lot."
[08:45:42] CWO2 Sarah: (( lol ))
[08:46:00] 2 LT Komillia: Does it say how to solve this gordian knot of a nebula and get us back to someplace resembling civilization?
[08:46:09] Lt.Jaron: "Did they have an XO or Quartermaster?"
[08:47:16] GM: Komilla, the way out is easy for you UEEF types. You know which way you have to go, it's jut a matter of making your way there without running into devestating currents. So you WILL be able to exit the nebula.
[08:47:54] 2Lt. Aylanea looks around a little bit again. "Too bad it's a little big to take aboard. Probably shouldnt' disturb the tomb too much though. The log and equipment, however, could psosibly be of interest to historical types. Same for the books."
[08:48:35] GM: Jeron, I'm sure one of the crew was an XO uyes
[08:48:38] GM: yes
[08:48:46] GM: same for teh QM
[08:49:40] GM: what are you looking for Jeron?
[08:51:08] GM: The Ensign reports the findings to the Captains of the two Shimikaze Battlecrusiers. Captain Rienard orders that all moveable relics be transferred to the Yukikaze for transport. The bodies of the crew are likewise to be intered in the Yuki's morgue pending their return to Tirol, when and if that world is liberated from the Haydonites.
[08:51:41] Lt.Jaron: (another quarter for the QM, if they were seperate from the others)
[08:54:21] GM: The lions share of the relics will need to be turned over to the CFW (Coaition of Free Worlds i.e the Sentinals) Science Council for later transfer to the Tiresians. However the Captian will allow you all an item or two to claim, as well as access to the books prior to them being turned over, (which could be weeks) so you get first read. You will also be given credit for the find.
[08:55:27] GM: Game wise, you all gain a +5% to Tiresian History or Lore skills should you have them, or take them in the future.
[08:56:35] Lt.Jaron: (Cool)
[08:57:08] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( neat ))
[08:57:47] GM: you also gain a +2% to Invid Lore / History should you have it or take it in the future
[08:58:22] GM: Same for Zentraedi lore / History skills
[08:59:02] 2 LT Komillia: lol
[08:59:09] 2 LT Komillia: ((lol))
[08:59:09] GM: hint hint lol
[08:59:25] GM: okay so items that you might desire from antiquity?
[08:59:51] Lt.Jaron: (just a book)
[09:00:03] GM: Jeron you are given two books
[09:00:40] CWO2 Sarah: (( hrm. none really for either of my chars. heehee ))
[09:01:02] 2 LT Komillia takes one of the polearms.
[09:01:13] Lt.Jaron: (k)
[09:01:48] GM: Suki asks for a sword, one of the old pistols and a book.
[09:02:12] CWO2 Sarah: (( well, maybe. ;p ))
[09:02:15] Lt. Fallnya: (probly a rifle and pistol for display
[09:02:18] Lt. Fallnya: , and any books left
[09:02:20] GM: done
[09:02:33] GM: Sarah, take a sextant
[09:02:39] GM: you navigator you
[09:02:44] CWO2 Sarah: (( heh, okie ))
[09:02:48] Lt. Fallnya: (none of the cloths are her size, or fem
[09:02:53] GM: nod
[09:03:30] 2 LT Komillia: ((summons Ishtar to play with while the crest are deciding on loot.))
[09:03:41] GM: lol
[09:03:47] 2 LT Komillia: ((er, rest))
[09:03:56] CWO2 Sarah: (( heh ))
[09:05:31] GM: okay, so, thats it for loot. note that the weapons etc are of the classical baroque design common to Tiresia, however, they are all very well made. and inlayed with gold, not so much for it's worth, but for it's durability (case in point, gold foil was used to protect the Appolo lander.
[09:05:47] GM: Apollo
[09:05:55] GM: me is not b gud speeleer 2nite
[09:06:02] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( heehee. ))
[09:07:14] GM: also as a Historical note Eratosthanes of Tonvella would be the Earth equal to Magellen and Niel Armstrong combined. Such was his fame and accomplishments
[09:07:49] GM: His disappearance had also been one of the 'Worlds great mysteries'
[09:08:12] Lt. Fallnya moves on with a couple books that loomked intresting picture wise and a good jumping off for teaching her self triolian
[09:08:25] Lt. Fallnya as well as a pistol and rifle for display no clips tho
[09:09:33] GM: Lu, you have the books no issue, but these would NOT be helpful to teach you Tiresian, however, Jeron I belive does have a primer for the language…if memory serves me
[09:11:14] GM: okay
[09:11:46] GM: After you abscond with your phat lewts the Major calls you into the ready room
[09:12:16] Lt.Jaron heads that way after changing
[09:12:27] Gage heads to the ready room
[09:12:30] 2Lt. Aylanea heads for it as well.
[09:12:52] CWO2 Sarah heads there quicklyaswell, settling into a seat.
[09:13:11] CWO2 Sarah: (( urf, bad spacebar ))
[09:14:08] 2 LT Komillia follows the group
[09:14:10] Maj. Kaveshera: Had fun with your fossils?
[09:14:11] Lt. Fallnya shows up just after the most of them except jaron and seats her self in her usual spot
[09:14:35] 2 LT Komillia: No, sir. Too few explosions…
[09:14:48] Maj. Kaveshera: Spoken like a true Zentraedi
[09:14:55] Lt. Fallnya: "Not as much fun as chasing Anjin out a hull breach Sir."
[09:15:32] LCpl Summerwind: Look out Fairman, she's after my ass now.
[09:15:43] LCpl Summerwind: Hussy!
[09:15:54] CWO2 Sarah blinks at Lu's comment, then snickers as Anji answers her.
[09:16:12] Lt. Ishida tries and fails to supress a snerk.
[09:16:29] Lt. Fallnya: "You wish that was mearly a way to keep you from floating to obilivion."
[09:16:36] Maj. Kaveshera: Oh what webs you weave.
[09:16:53] Gage shakes his head
[09:17:45] 2Lt. Aylanea laughs softly and smiles brightly to Anji.
[09:18:02] Lt.Jaron: "Sorry sir but the investigation was interesting"
[09:18:19] LCpl Summerwind notices Ay's smile and points at her
[09:18:26] LCpl Summerwind: Okay, now your just creeping me out.
[09:18:42] Maj. Kaveshera nods at Jeron's statment
[09:19:37] 2Lt. Aylanea blinks at Anji, rolling her eyes. "What, I can't have missed your comments while you were gone?" She smiles and turns back to listen to briefing then.
[09:19:42] Maj. Kaveshera: Well I hope you had fun, and hopefully you'll live to recieve your lifetime "I contributed to History" award, but right now, I'm going to need you back on war footing.
[09:20:25] Maj. Kaveshera: While you were playing Dr Jackson, our CAP fighters nuked another Shade.
[09:20:51] CWO2 Sarah frowns just a little at that.
[09:21:03] Maj. Kaveshera: We've notified the Fleet of our situation and they've asked us to play the bait.
[09:22:07] Maj. Kaveshera: Now, the Yuki is in fighting trim, so thats the good news. bad news is, we should expect a well appointed welcoming party from our toaster friends out there.
[09:22:51] Maj. Kaveshera: Our job is as follows. Dig in, meet the enemy, and claw his face off at point blank range.
[09:23:46] Maj. Kaveshera: The Captain believes, and i agree, that we can inflict substantial damage to the enemy in this debris field. Think of it as space based urban warfare. And we have the home team advantage.
[09:23:56] Lt.Jaron: "Interesting. Anyway we could use the larger peices of debris to lay ambushes or flank the enemy?"
[09:24:20] Maj. Kaveshera nods at jeron
[09:25:32] Maj. Kaveshera: Now here is the rub. The fleet is moving on fine without us. So, thats good for our side. However we do NOT want to be stuck in here.
[09:26:07] Lt. Fallnya: "And you want us to protect the engiens while destroying the enemy at the same time"
[09:26:24] Maj. Kaveshera: The Captain wants to bloody their noses, kill off a wave or two then fade before all hell shows up.
[09:27:05] 2 LT Komillia: HRmmm, how high can we make the output of an artificial gravity device go?
[09:27:05] Maj. Kaveshera: No, our CAP fighters will be protecting our ships, you guys are the pointy end. We didnt' spend all that time and money for you to play defense
[09:27:32] Lt.Jaron smirks
[09:27:33] Maj. Kaveshera: Not an engineer
[09:27:55] Lt. Fallnya: "What do you want us to do be the spear tip, and with what?"
[09:28:21] 2 LT Komillia: Can we make them strong enough to cause this junk to start violently shifting about once we get a few Haydonite ships into the debris field?
[09:28:53] Maj. Kaveshera: Thats for you to figure out.
[09:31:05] Lt. Fallnya: "Do we have an old zentradi warship some where then"
[09:31:31] Maj. Kaveshera: I'll be deploying 1st and 2nd Platoons inside the hulk here. Along with the Miyuki's 4th Platoon. Our 3rd will provide point D on the Yuki. The Miyuki's 1st and 3rd Platoons will be backing you up.
[09:32:27] Maj. Kaveshera: Yes, we have engineering teams aboard that Salan Scout you found, and her engines fired right up once the parts it needed were repaired.
[09:33:40] Maj. Kaveshera: That Tirolian ship on the other hand, she's being a might testy, engineers dont know if they can get her up and running,
[09:33:43] Lt. Fallnya: "How much trouble would it be to set it to self destruct right in the middile of their flight?
[09:34:04] Maj. Kaveshera: Isn't that a little fatalistic?
[09:34:23] Lt. Fallnya: "Only if were to slow to get off befor the big KAboom"
[09:35:03] Lt. Fallnya: "Or me at least."
[09:35:16] Lt.Jaron: "I was thinking of planting multiple munitions on some debris to either cover the retreat or take some out"
[09:35:31] CWO2 Sarah looks over at Lu and cocks her head to one side. "I'd think it'd be more important to have that ship's firepower to go along with our own. If we can deploy quietly and sneak around the field, I wondered if the trick we used last time might be workable before they can react. Or if we can hide a condor by sneaking it through the debris."
[09:36:15] No match found
[09:36:36] CWO2 Sarah: ([1d100] => [4] = (4) tactics vs. 89% and [1d100] => [46] = (46) Fleet Tactics vs. 59%)
[09:37:00] Maj. Kaveshera: Munitions should be no issue Fairman, we have plenty, hell the ship we're hiding in, Komilla here found a fully loaded missile armory
[09:37:13] Lt. Fallnya: [1d100] => [59] = (59) vs 43%, Tactics
[09:37:35] GM: Ask your questions
[09:38:13] Lt. Fallnya: "Is the weapons operable on the Scout?"
[09:38:37] GM: You asking the Major that, or me?
[09:38:47] Lt. Fallnya: (major
[09:39:08] Maj. Kaveshera: Yes, her guns are operational
[09:39:26] Maj. Kaveshera: For all intents and purposes, we have three ships
[09:40:33] Maj. Kaveshera: Only thing she needs is a command crew and gunners
[09:40:38] Lt. Fallnya: "We could take her out on the field with us, i doubt theyd expect to see such an old Bird, Call me carazy ive been wanting to serve on one for…. (cant think of the word now) Sentimental Purposes."
[09:41:41] CWO2 Sarah nods. "If we're lucky, they won't realize that we have a third ship. If we're not… have they moved the scout at all, to have it noticed by a recon unit spying on us?"
[09:42:23] Maj. Kaveshera: No, the scout is still where you found her
[09:43:46] Lt. Fallnya: "Would ask to captain it then and bring it in as a surprise guest, upon the call of the Captain."
[09:43:57] Lt. Fallnya: "But i wouldent know who to ask to be command crew."
[09:43:57] Maj. Kaveshera: Jeron?
[09:44:06] CWO2 Sarah nods just a little bit at that. "Then hopefully they haven't detected engine emissions, and it'll still be a surprise." She nods a little to Lurana.
[09:44:12] Lt. Fallnya: "Other than Anjin whos the best radio operator ive met."
[09:44:18] Lt.Jaron: (here listening and pondering)
[09:44:18] Maj. Kaveshera: I'm fine with the idea, but she's your troop.
[09:44:32] 2 LT Komillia: ((AFK))
[09:44:59] LCpl Summerwind: Sure, I'll go.
[09:46:32] Lt. Fallnya: "Jaron what do you think?"
[09:47:31] Lt.Jaron: "You have to be able to get off the ship in time and avoid being seen before it blows. Maybe if you have a small fold ship in the cargo hold to use to get out of there."
[09:47:51] Lt. Fallnya: "I did just think of one problem with my idea.. Unless it happens to have a Protoculture chamber to make us big…"
[09:48:11] Lt. Fallnya: "I changed my mind on blowing it."
[09:48:21] Lt. Ishida : WIf I may?
[09:48:23] Lt. Ishida : If
[09:48:35] Lt. Ishida : Ahh, never mind then
[09:48:59] Lt.Jaron rolls his eyes "Ok. Still using it to cover or maybe drone some of the sent mechs to use"
[09:49:05] Lt.Jaron: (drons)
[09:49:05] Lt. Ishida : Use your Alpha. I flew the Reentry pod within my Alpha.
[09:49:08] Lt.Jaron: (drones)
[09:49:24] CWO2 Sarah: (( *tickles Suki* ))
[09:49:34] Lt.Jaron: (sent=zent)
[09:50:17] 2Lt. Aylanea hmms. "Do we have any idea of the remaining missile payload and overall power reserve on the scout? It won't be helpful if it conks out when it tries to fire forward weapons."
[09:50:19] Lt.Jaron: "Major, are any of the weapon systems operational on the Zent ship?"
[09:50:35] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( already asked, they are ))
[09:50:49] Lt.Jaron: (sorry, missed iit; Ok)
[09:50:50] Maj. Kaveshera: You mean the 'Hulk'?
[09:51:16] Lt.Jaron: "Could we get some techs to control the weapons remotely?"
[09:51:56] Maj. Kaveshera: I'll talk to the Captian on that, I dont think it should be to hard to have them controlled from our CIC
[09:52:28] Lt. Fallnya: "Controled, or at least assisted aimed, But it still needs a crew aboard to make it moble."
[09:53:16] Lt.Jaron: "Good. If we can get it moving in when we are planning the fold out would be good. Cover us and leave them something to fight. Yes, but manning the weapons will help put the hurt on and a nice surprise"
[09:53:17] Maj. Kaveshera: I'm sure we can find a few Battloid drivers that can act as gunners.
[09:53:46] Maj. Kaveshera: Remember Jeron, fold drives are useless in the enbula.
[09:53:54] Maj. Kaveshera: ((nebula))
[09:53:59] 2Lt. Aylanea listens quietly as the others discuss that, waiting quietly for response to her question.
[09:54:07] Lt.Jaron: (still, good for cover)
[09:55:23] Lt. Ishida : Sir, as your FIST team leader, I'd like some Reflex munitions loaded. Sarah and I can hide in the debris and fire on the enemy at point blank.
[09:55:53] Maj. Kaveshera nods
[09:56:05] Maj. Kaveshera: I'll ask, I dont think she'll say no.
[09:56:24] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( *pokes the Major idly with stick* ))
[09:56:28] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( heehee ))
[09:56:41] Lt. Fallnya: (belive ayl asked something i missed it
[09:57:01] Maj. Kaveshera: Missile payload on that scout is about full, maybe 2/3
[09:57:22] 2Lt. Aylanea nods just a little bit. "That's definitely good then."
[09:59:12] Maj. Kaveshera: Whoever transferres over to it should get with the engineering team, tehy'd be able to give you a better assessement than I can.
[09:59:53] Lt.Jaron looks to Lurana "Its in your court if you want."
[10:00:32] Lt. Fallnya: "Allright, ill take my fighter, and a beta then over, save a shuttle trip and gives Anji a Ride."
[10:00:48] Maj. Kaveshera: You go aboard that ship Lurana. You follow the captains orders, to the letter, you go that?
[10:01:00] Maj. Kaveshera: ((go = got))
[10:01:19] Lt. Fallnya: "I have no reson to disobey the captains orders. IF she told me to ram it down their throats i would."
[10:01:25] Lt. Fallnya: "Alone if i had to."
[10:01:35] Maj. Kaveshera: Good.
[10:01:45] Maj. Kaveshera: Very good
[10:04:55] Lt.Jaron: "A battloid team would possible link to multiple systems to fire. Komillia you want to help Lurana or play the field with the rest?"
[10:05:27] 2 LT Komillia: I guess can help Lu.
[10:05:38] Lt. Fallnya: "If not ill take her brother and John"
[10:06:00] Lt. Fallnya: "John hasnt seen action in a few months."
[10:06:20] Lt.Jaron nods "very well, if major approves."
[10:06:31] Maj. Kaveshera: Do it
[10:07:05] Maj. Kaveshera: If I recall, Jhon has some gunnery experiance under his belt that will come in handy
[10:08:02] Lt. Fallnya: "Where is that buggard any way."
[10:08:08] Lt. Fallnya: "Did he get transferd?"
[10:08:16] Maj. Kaveshera: I have him in 4th Platoon
[10:08:39] 2Lt. Aylanea nods just a little at that.
[10:09:36] Lt. Fallnya: "Allright, Ill hush now, As far as the rest of the crew ill take who ever the captain asigns."
[10:09:39] Lt.Jaron: "Flight team should load up on the heavy munitions. Gage and Lee with the help of Aylanea can start placing ordanances in the debris field."
[10:09:53] Maj. Kaveshera nods
[10:10:04] Lt. Fallnya: "Guess ill get otell mom, when we get out of the soup i captaind a scout cruiser from the old days."
[10:10:15] Lt. Fallnya: get to tell
[10:10:39] Lt.Jaron smiles and shakes his head slightly
[10:11:53] Maj. Kaveshera: Okay then, if you have other questions get with the CIC team or myself.
[10:12:05] Maj. Kaveshera: Lets get this done.
[10:12:24] 2Lt. Aylanea nods just a little bit at that.
[10:12:35] Lt. Fallnya snaps up and salutes, "Anji you ready for a ride?"
[10:12:59] LCpl Summerwind: You didnt even buy me dinner first.
[10:13:36] Lt. Fallnya: "What would you rathe have them, tomato paste, or ramen?"
[10:13:47] Lt. Fallnya: then
[10:13:52] LCpl Summerwind: Wow, what a cheapskate!
[10:14:00] Lt.Jaron smiles
[10:14:26] Lt.Jaron stands and salute before he departs
[10:14:29] Lt. Fallnya giives a joke gri
[10:14:47] Maj. Kaveshera dismisses the group
[10:15:05] CWO2 Sarah laughs at Anji and Lu and shakes her head a little.
[10:15:26] GM: Okay, we will call it here, next week… The Showdown.
[10:15:30] Lt. Fallnya as she leaves she squeezes jaron on the ass and heads for the locker room to get her CVR on and prepair to launh with the beta
[10:15:39] Lt. Fallnya: err the legios that is
[10:15:40] Lt.Jaron starts to exit and comments to the group "I will sign off on about anything."
[10:16:38] CWO2 Sarah glances over to Suki and ponders it. "Hrm…"
[10:17:09] CWO2 Sarah: (( aww @ calling it. ))
[10:17:36] GM: Not much I'll get done in 45 minutes so, best for me to call it and start the planning process for the BIG SHOW!
[10:17:52] 2 LT Komillia: Understood.
[10:18:10] CWO2 Sarah thinks a minute. "So, we going to be in a single Legios for this, or should it be suggested that having two is more defensible for delivering the payloads?"
[10:18:17] CWO2 Sarah: (( aww, was just gonna ask Suki that.l ))
[10:18:21] CWO2 Sarah: (( *snif* ))
[10:18:44] James: Going to bed, so I can get up early and hopefully get down at my job earlier so I can go watch Iron Man 2 at IMAX.
[10:18:44] Lt.Jaron looks to Sarah and Suki "Seperate"
[10:18:58] James: Disconnecting from server…
[10:18:58] James (exit): 22:18
[10:19:08] Lt. Ishida : If we want more fire power, each of us in an Alpha with unmanned beta
[10:19:08] Lt. Fallnya: ok am curious
[10:19:20] CWO2 Sarah nods a little. "Reflex warheads on both then, if authed. I thought so. Okay."
[10:19:46] Lt. Ishida : Hai, six warheads each
[10:20:13] CWO2 Sarah smiles softly.
[10:20:15] Lt. Fallnya: ok im curious ooc
[10:20:18] Lt. Ishida : I would request hot realods be waiting for us on the flight deck so we can reload once we are empty
[10:20:27] Lt. Fallnya: what the diffrence between LRM and Cruise missiles?
[10:20:29] Lt.Jaron nods
[10:20:30] 2Lt. Aylanea nods. "I'll take a legios as well, with empty Beta."
[10:20:34] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( heehee ))
[10:20:55] GM: crusie missiles and LRM are for all intents and purposes the same thing
[10:21:15] Lt. Fallnya: ahh thought cruise missiles would cause more damage
[10:21:28] GM: if anything they have longer range if anything
[10:22:02] Lt.Jaron looks to Aylanea "You can carry Lee & Gage with the munitions that way to avoid a shuttle out there"
[10:22:29] 2Lt. Aylanea: [1d12] => [7] = (7)
[10:22:34] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( oops ))
[10:22:39] 2Lt. Aylanea nods quickly. "All right."
[10:23:29] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( heehee. ))
[10:23:34] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( wee, excitement! ))
[10:24:59] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( *tickles da GM* ))
[10:25:26] Lt.Jaron: tactics [1d100] => [27] = (27) vs 80%
[10:25:34] Lt. Fallnya: jeese 34 gunners at least for the missiles unless those are linked and fire at the same trgets
[10:26:08] GM: right on, now, unless the enemy beats that roll you are sonfidant you placed the boom booms in the right place
[10:26:10] Lt. Fallnya: 13 gunner for the partical beam cannons, lasers, and at least 1 to fire the main cannon from the bridge
[10:28:42] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( heehee. Hrm. ))
[10:28:46] Lt.Jaron: I was thinking several systems could be linked to single battloid and its combat computer could make the systems under its control fire at the enemy or a group of them
[10:28:54] That's the Tab key, Dave
[10:29:46] Lt.Jaron: hence some tech know how would be required if possible
[10:30:06] GM: might be workable, Zent systms aren't all that complex
[10:31:34] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( hrm. ))
[10:32:52] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( *snugs around* ))
[10:33:19] Lt.Jaron: ok
[10:33:35] Lt. Fallnya: still would be nice to have battloid pilots outside tho to shoot at stuff as point defense defenders
[10:34:14] GM: made mention to that already
[10:34:26] GM: you have two platoons from the Miyuki to back you up
[10:34:46] GM: as in back you ALL up not just you Lu
[10:34:53] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( heehee. ))
[10:36:23] Lt. Fallnya: i know
[10:36:25] GM: Carrie, do me a favor and opena Forum thread for this, so that any additioanl questions etc can be adressed there
[10:36:35] Lt. Fallnya: k
[10:36:37] 2Lt. Aylanea: okie'
[10:36:56] Lt. Fallnya: i assume the battloids of those platoons will be spread out between the 3 ships tho
[10:37:49] GM: 1 platoon is dedicted to the yuki, one to the miyuki, 2 others are going to turn the Hulk intoa fortress, leave the two floater platoons and you
[10:38:05] GM: leave = leaving
