Re: Legacy's new digs
Going into the confines of the building Hotwire takes off his mask and goggles, allowing his glowing green eyes to be easily seen.  Moving through the building quickly he mutters to himself under his breath as he explores, grinning as he sees the labspace.  Oh this was just what he need.

"Reed ain't got shit on me in these digs.  Er...  us!  I mean us!"

He's absolutely giddy.  Looking over some of the communications equipment he thumps a few fingers against his chin something seemed to be right.  But what?  What was it that he needed.  There!

They had plenty of communication equipment and they wouldn't miss one and it had the parts he needed.  A twitch comes to his right jaw as he looks around before quickly disassembling the communication equipment and pulls out a few microchips that were within it.

The next stop was the med labs.  He needed...  something.  Again what he wasn't quite sure.  Muttering to himself he sets the microchips aside and starts moving quickly through the inventory of the medlabs as well as other equipment in the building.  If what he was looking for was here, he was sure to find it, and somehow instinctively he'd know it when he found it.

Re: Legacy's new digs
Zeke can hear a motorcycle pulling up outside. A few minutes later in walsk Hunter in full costume and armed a little more heavily than usual, thouhg his wepaons seem to have a nonlethal bend to them. He does have his bow and a sword acorss his back but in adition theres a collapsible baton, bolos, a tazer, and nunchucks on his belt. he lets out a whisstle as he looks aorund. "Man they sure know how to deliver."

Lucas had the bus drop him off a couple of blocks away. He then looked down at the piece of paper he wrote the address on that Hotwire gave to him.

He continued to walk until he looked up at the building that was now their HQ.

"My God....this is the place?"

He then walked in, looking to see if he could find anyone.

Re: Legacy's new digs
"Yeah."

Zeke was definetly still distracted.  To an extent it seemed he had found what he was looking for, or atleast found things that he could substitute for now.  There were already several pitri dishes sealed up with chemical notations all starting with carbon.

There was a small aquarium sitting infront of him that he was watching intently.  It is empty except for a small patch of pinkish flat glob sitting at the bottom of the aquarium.  Written in black marker along the front are the words 'DO NOT TOUCH'.

His fingers were tapping quickly, furiously and his brow was furrowed as he watches the glob intently.

"Ugh... wish I had a clue what was going on here.  Any leads about those daggers yet?"

Re: Legacy's new digs
Lucas looked to Don. "There's a lot that we need to fill you in on Don. There was a tome that was stolen...the Tome of Erathis, correct me if I'm wrong Zeke. The Pitiless are believed to be the next target of this thief...whoever he or she is...Ozzy...or Painter..one of the New Age Defenders....has wizard connections, so he was checking out a lead on it..."

Re: Legacy's new digs
"Pretty much, apparently it was the Tome that Enigma used so he didn't blow himself up with his handwaving.  As for the Dagger's, they're believed to be able to kill anything.  They're at the museum."

He frowns as he taps at the aquarium, the single glob growing and then seperating into several more globs.  Zeke curiously tilts his head and gives a little sniff.  Something really didn't smell right.  Picking up a pen he drops it carefully into the aquarium and it begins to rapidly dissolve.

"I'm not sure what it's supposed to be entirely.  But apparently this particular strain is capable of asexual reproduction and produces an acid as a byproduct of sugar.  Useful but not exactly what I think I'm wanting to work on."

Giving a slow sigh he sits up and starts to get equipment to drain the aquarium of what apparently has become mostly acid now.

Re: Legacy's new digs
Draining the acid with care and precision he closes the container and moves to dispose of it, then carefully disposes of the samples and aquarium as well so as not to contaminate the rest of his experiments.  He then moves to the medical lab to run a few simulations.  Apparently the eighth pitri dish would have the same byproduct, though that acid would probably even eat through glass.  Great.  He removes the eighth pitri dish and destroys that sample as well.  Picking up the first pitri dish and looks to the seven others still sitting on the tray.  This was going to be a long process.

"Hopefully you atleast give me an idea of what's going on here."

Setting up a new aquarium he places the sample in the aquarium after filling it with water.

Re: Legacy's new digs
Lucas then told Hunter, "It's good to see you. I know that I haven't always been the greatest person to work with....but I am glad to see you out from prison..."

Not waiting for Hunter's response, Lucas then began to look around at this new complex. Had the City funded this for Legacy? Friday would have been proud....

...if she were here....

Face it Lucas...she's probably going into a situation that is going to keep her away for a long time...time to move along...plus you've got your own problems to worry about..

"The daggers should be the genuine article someone already went after them. I should know, it was me." When Lucas speaks Hunter looks up from Zeke's little experiment. "Thanks" Is all he replies.

Re: Legacy's new digs
Lucas scoured the complex, getting a feel for it. It was hard to believe that this was going to be their new headquarters. But here it was....

He then walked back into the room with Hotwire and Hunter...unsure of this "experiment" that he was running, but still lost in his thoughts.

So...what now? Is the Legacy going to stay together? And where's Mirage?

Re: Legacy's new digs
Zeke had been waiting for a bit for the first sample to reproduce.  As soon as he introduced sugar and a few basic amino acids into the water the sample reproduces at an incredible rate.  In the forty gallon tank there are soon fifty to sixty small one inch by one inch flat floating patches of flesh like critters.  Tilting his head to one side he gives a soft sigh and then blinks.  He gives a little nod over towards Hunter.  Makes sense he tried to steal them.  They'd be useful tools all in all.

Grabbing some tongs he carefully picks up one of the flesh like critters and sets it in a bowl nearby.  Looking to the forty gallon tank the remaining critters move towards the side of the aquarium closest to the fish bowl, the movement is mirrored by the single critter in the fish bowl.

"Hunter, help me out for a second?"

Grabbing a white curtain he sets it between the fish bowl and aquarium.  Picking up a notebook and pencil.

"Let me know what, if anything, they do."

They don't do anything for a short while but soon they make very rapid movements.

Soon though they make several shapes.  A square, a circle, a house and the outline of the Decepticon symbol.

Hunter does as he is told. "They're sitting there...Oh now they're moving really fast, now they're making shapes.A square, a circle, a house, and isn't that that thing from transformers?"

Re: Legacy's new digs
"Interesting.  They even did it the right order.  And in time.  For all intents and purposes apparently instant communication.  Fascinating."

Pulling the screen back so that they both could see he holds out the flash cards he had drawn.  The Decepticon symbol had more detail to it than the outline, but there were not enough critters for the symbol to be completed.

"So, it would seem we have things that can communicate with each other.  And they are able to transmit images.  If images as well, why not thoughts.  I know with Friday around we had ourselves our own little network, but this...  well it can keep the need for telepaths to be jumbling around our heads to almost nothing.  Excellent."

Zeke is grinning ear to ear, until the critters in both the aquariam and the fish bowl suddenly stop moving and float slowly to the surface.  The upper part of them rapidly drying and breaking into dust.

"Apparently they are extremely short lived however.  Still, atleast I have an idea of what I'm dealing with here.  Hmmmm...  I'll call it the Thelarian Network.  After the Thelarian Mindslug of Alpha Ceti V of course."

"Communicating organisms, interesting. Well that deals with the  commuincation problem, And while your working on this I have the need to hit something. " He turns to LUcas" What about the escapees or the fact that wasn't it alittle too convenient both my old friend, fridays dissapearance, and Lucas's old enemy all showing up at the same time might be a little TOO convenient?'

Re: Legacy's new digs
Lucas nodded at Hunter.

"It does seem to all fit together Don...the question who is gathering up all of these elements. It's like someone's hitting us when we're at our most vulnerable....like someone is running us through some kind of gauntlet..."

Re: Legacy's new digs
"If half the world's population comes up missing.  I quit."

Zeke then goes on to mutter under his breath as he moves to dispose of the second expirement, setting up a new aquarium for the second pitri dish and once that is completed he goes about cleaning up and steralizing the previous aquarium for a later expirement.

"Would make sense though.  Been a few months of quiet, the boom really has started to pick up lately.  Not surprising there's something or someone behind the curtain starting everything up into an uproar again."

Re: Legacy's new digs
Lucas crossed his arms and began to think. As far as he knew, the Dark Champion was his biggest enemy. There couldn't be someone pulling his strings...

Couldn't there?

He then looked around for a brief moment.

"Have any of you heard from Mirage recently?"

Re: Legacy's new digs
"You two going to need me for comedy relief?  Think I'm really onto something here.  We all know Mirage for the most part can take care of herself and if it was anything serious it'd be all over the news by now."

A few flashes of electricity flow across his eyes as he tilts his head to the side, standing still for a moment.

"Hmmm...  nope.  Nothing out of the ordinary on the news.  Atleast not yet.  The three of you should probably be able to handle it then, and of course there's the NAD if you need any assistance."

Humming the A-Team theme song quietly to himself then he sets about setting up the second pitri dish sample into a new aquarium.
