When Zob finished his song he stepped down and looked to Sneak and refused to take back any credits, "People who do good work deserve to be compensated well, what you do with the credits is your call but they are no longer mine... listen to me Sneak you can use it to better yourself and treat your friends to something good" with that he grabbed his pitcher of beer waved goodbye to her as he headed on back to his table.

Re: RECDEC 7
   two of the  Civie s get  upo  and go to the    MAchine and  ask    Hemsly  to set up the  Machine  and they  begin to sing along , stomping thier   feet  as   a bunch of others    sing from the   outside of the   dance  floor..

 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZVz_IJoyO6Y


  while all this was going On , Shadow Got Up,, as he Noticed  something.. he Poitned at   Pickerton and  said   to  LArry,..she  doesn't leave....

   LArry thumped his   tail   and swung his  head to  look at her,  turning   his head  45  degrees as he looked at her.

  ...Bloody  hell....

 Roll was  talkign ti  Sneaks ' Old"  Mom... there  little Girl  was crying.. the father looked concerned, the  woman looked  defensive....  Shadow  crouched  by  Roll who looked    like his feeling were hurt.

 ..ok.. What's Going on Roll?

 The  Woman started to say something, But  Shadow held up a hand  without even looking at her...Roll First......

 ..I asked if  Nina  Could  come play Vidboard  with us?.. But the Mean Mommy said she wasn't allowed to Play with us...

 Shadows  head  Dropped  down  and he shook it , Shadow  said  quietly..never lookign up...

 ..alright  Ma'am....lets hear what you have to say..and it better be damned good...

 ..You don't know. Mr Shadow.. you never  had to raise  a  real  child... we are trying to protect Nina....

 ..So?.. Orria?..... My Son ?.. no good to be around? They can  fight..get wounded..but  don't dare share some of thie r toys with you?.... These  kids..Roll here.. has seen more darkness  that you'll ever live to see..and he wants to share a tiny bright spot  with your  Daughter..even thought you ripped the ehart of   the young  woman who  protected  him for the last...gods  know how many years?

  He stood  Up......your   daughter  wants to go.. that's easy enough to see... Your husband  wants her to go, but he's too  gutless  to say anyhting.. and YOu..Ma'am?.. I have no idea whats  wrong with you...

 ..how dare you!.... This isn't  your ship.. and I'm Not one of your   pilots!

 ..Bet me?... Do you think.. of one second, if   i called  for volunteers  to load you  onto a shuttle  and take you for  a ride   to  The Pit..that   a 100 of these people   wouldn't  jump up and do it?...... You know why?.. because i'd  do it for them... and they know  i'd have to have a damn good   reason.... Now... I'm taking Roll back over to the other Kids....if you are very smart, You let your daughter   get to know her new playmates... and  if  not.... , ask yourself.. do you have a dman good reason..I just hope the 9 hells you are  some EDT spy..because... well... just don't be...

 They were  Half  way  Back to the   Table were  shade was settigng up Vid  Board for the Kids to play games..   Nina  came  running over with a Big  Smile and raced Roll the  rest of the way..

  Shadow  Just looked at the  couple, and gave his half  smile  and  a nod.

  Sitting  down at the Table, larry  Thumped his tail as Shadow    waved to Dana  and Pointed to LArry..  Dana   smiled  and   nodded.

  So  Connie?.. one free  round?... what do you think?

 Dixie  came over  with a  Grands cew SGT they both sipped  drinks

 ..Free  round you say?.. Then... I will say, that your   weakness  for  children  will be your end?.... Treating  your crew like they  play football  with your rather then fight under you... is goign to be the end of you.. you have  no structure..

 ..  all of us fight  together..... e might  have degrees  of  'under command'..but that's where it  begins and Ends....of course. if the  privilege is abused.. it ends  quickly.. but  almost  all of us , know  we  cam trusty each other.

  Constance looks  at all the others, seeing teh varied  races, ranks..

…………………………..

 Clark shrugs,.. I have a Bunny on the  Bradbury.. they went down the   tunnel we were supposed to go?.. he said there was like..6 Largran Machins  down there, and  50 some Largran troopers.. , they wiped them out?.. but lost  like 30   troopers  themslevs... what would have happened to us..

Haley went about playing with some of the other kids.  Enjoying just running around.
Nikki looked at Jason "Most like to dance and sing with the vidboards.  I grew up playing guitar with my family.  So I just play what I like" to which she did start playing.

Re: RECDEC 7
When Shadow offered his explanation of why Pinkerton was stuck in the role of the Axis pilot, Roy raised his glass in a salute to the pilot.  He finished chewing the bite of meat in his mouth, then added, "Look at it another way.  In WWI, the Axis pilots were pretty much all Germans, yes?  But the Allies?  They had English, French, American...they were a mongrel bunch.  Funny thing about mongrels, though...there's this biological principle called 'hybrid vigor'...you take a purebred sire and dam, and their offspring is almost always more active, more healthy, and smarter than either of the parents."

He gestured around the room.  "How in the world could a mix this motley ever be considered the Axis?  We HAVE to be the Allies in this scenario..."  Before she could respond, he looked at her and raised a hand in a restraining gesture.

"Just think about it for a couple of minutes, before you talk.  Which might be good advice, going from this point forward, in general...but especially with regards to the Hermes or any of her personnel."

He went back to work on his steak, letting her stew under Larry's attentive eye.  When Shadow got back, he finished up the last bite...then let out a short bark of laughter at the enemy pilot's comment about lack of structure.

"Don't kid yourself, lady.  Structure comes in a wide variety.  You're used to seeing everything in rank and file...stacked building blocks, everything conforming to its designated position.  Our structure is more organic...a ball is every bit as structured as a cube, but it behaves in a totally different manner.  You're stuck in an incredibly archaic mindset...you look at military organizations like they're 19th Century set-piece battles, where everyone has one specific role and they do that role and the whole thing breaks down if anyone fails to do their job.  You're ignoring a few centuries of military evolution...guerilla warfare, special operations, multi-role forces, combined-arms forces...looked like absolute anarchy to the 'old guard', each time one of these innovations came along...but the new ways proved superior to the old.  We may look like a chaotic mess to you...but you keep forgetting that your lock-step, rank-and-file forces got schooled hard.  Discipline on the battlefield doesn't always equate to discipline in the barracks, especially when you're dealing with a broad variety of forces from wildly disparate backgrounds.  It's got its time and place...but after the battle is won is neither one of those."

He shrugged, and added, "Not sure why I'm wasting the breath to try and explain it to you, because if you're too dense to have realized that you already lost the battle and grousing about the forces that won isn't going to change it, nothing I'm saying at this point will grant you additional insight.  And I'm pretty sure you're not going to be around that much longer to worry about it, anyway...whether Shadow decides he's done his due diligence to an adversary and then puts you out of our collective misery by shoving you out the static field, or whether you get sent to a penal colony where, if you're lucky, you won't end up being eaten by one of the less-genteel Apefolk, you'll be leaving soon.  So, just sit back, relax, and enjoy what might very well be your last civilized meal."

Re: RECDEC 7
    The party was  in high gear.  Dana  and the Girls  were runnign around , trying to get all the orders  to  everyone  who is calling..

   some of the LAdies and Girls   will  chat with Sneak, as they  laugh  or  giggle  and  talk  about what tips they got..or , maybe  , someone to  'watch out   ' for if they seem to be jerks.

 Shadow   Nodded,..  Delta colonies are waiting for   you Connie... heck..you might  even be a pilot  there.. but you won't be a Captain..and You'll be  flying     'hand-me-downs' that the Delta Flight  doesn't use.

 ....so..why am i here?

 ..you  are here .. to see what   real people are like.. sometime tomorrow  morning?... The Admiral is going to chat with you..then you'll find out  , where you'll be...If  its  here?.. you'll be an ensign , on a very short leash..and you'll have to prove yourself   on a daily basis.. if not?.. you'll be  walkign  the walls in a colony  at the edge of  Ape-folk  territory, as the  leaders  there   try to keep idiots  from  ending up as  dinner...keep that in mind...

  ..Dixie?.. why don't you take    this   Grand Woman  off   to a table  somewhere and Have a  Chat... Bring her  back when you'er    done...

 The Guy looked at  LC  with Daggers,..Sir?.. we had  Plans..we were gonna...

 .. you  were gonna say "  Yes  Sir  LC... I'll  get laid later.."... That's what you were gonna say..isn't it?

 The  fellow  looked  like  someone  punched him .....Aye.... Sir...

 Dixie  frowned as the     guy moved of,  Shadow never looked  Up  from his  study of his  rootbeer,.. I suggest you move along ....  now, Dixie?...

 ..Aye  , Sir... Comon  Sugar. lets  go have us some   girl time...  and they moved off, takign   Connnie's eats and drink with her.

 Lyri said  quietly,..You sure?.. I eman... couldn't it have waited  until later?

  Shadow     leaned  back after  pickign up a slice of pizza, its  easrly?  the  guy is   either trying to see how many score he  can make tonight.. or just sett;ed  on the   first target.....besides..Dixie's a red Bird... let them talk Bird to bird..

Re: RECDEC 7
In reply to Roy Spencer (msg # 818):

When things seemed to be in hand, and Pinkerton didn't seem to be willing to try anything else Melia slid back into her chair, the knife tucked back into its sheath.  She waved at Dana and ordered another glass of milk, and having another slice of pizza. She decided that with all this good food and drink perhaps a trip to the gym later was in order. Melia continues to watch Pinkerton even when Shadow puts Larry in charge of watching her. Though her attention shifts and splits to what has drawn Shadow's attention. When she sees the situation resolve itself rather peacefully with Nina going to join the other children she resumes paying attention to Orria and the others

When Shadow returns, and gives Pinkerton permission to speak she sits back and gives Pinkerton a feral grin as the enemy Captain appraises the table. Roy as always offer his own sage wisdom to the situation.

Orria

Rather than playing the same game as everyone else Orria had began playing with the programming game that Shade had created for her quite some time ago. She moved quickly through the adaptive exercises, making adjustments here and there to her code and her methods. At almost 6 she couldn't explain it, but to her people and languages just made sense to her young mind. She glanced at the screen Score and Jason and the others were using and smiles a little in a mischievous manner while Shade continues to set up.

When the commotion broke out she looked over deemed it irrelevant and largely ignored it her focus returning to the kids gaming and whatever she was working on using her board for the moment, her lips pursed in concentration her little brow furrowed. She watches what Shade is doing and provides interpretations as necessary.

With a grin, the young girl waves a few of other children over, presses a button on her vidboard, and looks over and watches Beth. Who's vidboard screen will suddenly light up with a video. (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QH2-TGUlwu4)

Re: RECDEC 7
  A waiter from the OC  came Over to Shadow's table. Handing him a  printed out list from a Vid Board.

  ..LC... Captain Morri's   compliments....   You  and what pilots    and troopers  are interested, will  begoiung  down to the Proving Grounds , along with the board?... they will be showing off   Mechs , fighters   and  weapons.. Captain Morris  has a   list of Pilots  who  want to transfer  to the  Delta Fleet... he  says  you will have   pick of the litter to fill out  our flights...except  for the Feltites, they will, as  always, replace thier own.

 Shadow  gave the fellow a 20 cred  tip...Thank you ,, PO.. carry on...  The waiter  saluted  and    went off to  the OC.

 Shadow Looked  at the   sheet, browsing names  and Brief  history, he says  , mostly to   Roy, but loud enough for most who might be interested  to hear,Wow... what a crop?

 Frans  leans over to  look at names,..when we Go there  , CArole.. You'll  do the talking, I'm  gonna  sift through the bunch with  , what disgusie   i can  do in unifrom, just to  try and get a feel for them..

 Frans  shakes her head,..look at the  log  hours!..we had more then that as freshmen....

 .. the war is shifting... , like i said to the Red Bird... we have  EDT/EVOLs  suckign up bodies  we could use,  and..for that matter...killing folks we  could use.......it won't be long  until each ship  will be training folks  who  are on board....that's one of the Hidden uses  for the EDT?.. we kill them.. they killus, and the Empire sits back and smiles..

  Beth Looked at her  Vid Board,  and   snapped,..SHADE!!

  The little Verian  looked over  with Grey  eyes as Beth Held Up the Vid board..

  He  just held out his   arms   in  'I don't know' fashion.

   Beth   Frowned  and    did a  fie  finger  passes, before  clearing  the   feed  and   setting up her Blocks...she still glared at him,..I shouldn't  have  to lock out , a non-business Vid board!

 Shade Loked  to Shadow  who frowned at him as well.

ORRIA

Orria holds it in the best she can but eventually her giddiness at Beth's confusion causes her to snicker and eventually outright uncontrollable giggling at the success of her prank her face turning a bright red from the laughter. "Orria put video." She gasps out laughing still.

Melia

Melia looks over at her daughter and frowns at the attention suddenly directed at Shade. "who did what now?"  she asks confused having missed seeing the video.

 then he poitned to the  three  Vidboards ( one was Roll's that  Shade gave him).. all three had Vid  games on that the  Kids  were playing on.

 Nina  and Roll were   playing one of his Games... The kids  were  making thier own racket as  they  gasped  , squealed or  cheered, depending onwhat was  happening to them on the  screens.

In reply to Missy Jagger (msg # 827):

Orria kept until Melia shifted to the mom look, and suddenly she became fixated on helping the other kids and Shade play the games. Though she occasionally gave Beth a sly look out of the corner of her eye. She whistled an apology at Shade for getting him in trouble, as well as a comment on how silly Beth had looked. Melia relaxed a little and laughed with the crowd at the group effort to put Shadow on the spot.

   Shade   holds  one  finger of his   three fingered hand,  and   takes the Vid board , his hands  move over the    keys .. in  a  few seconds  the Board  was  fixed  to  allow  passage , only to the games and such.

 The  Half verian then   bleeps a bit  to show the kids  are waiting, so he should hurry..mean while, others  played the other games

………………..
\
 dixie  came over to Shadow's table, Mussette  seemed to be 'hitting on'  Pinkerton.. She  sat  down and looked  at the Ohers  before  saying,..LC?.. You can't  send  her to those colonies.. she's like to  die there?

 Shadow     shifted  his eyes  to her,..that's a fact!   As it is  for  any coloist or prisoner   we send there..

 well?.. ya  See, LC?.. she's not  built  for  hard   labor?... and..

 ..Jax..... how old were you  when you got dumped into the Stem?

 ..I'm not  certain  , Sir?..  5-6..something like that?

 So..Jax  was  about  5 or 6 ?.. Sneak? . about the same?  Roll is  5  or 6..Lifter.. about  6 Dice  is  8 or 9.. Bug.. around 6? and Dice is about 11... all of them.. in  The Stem..no one  but gangers to look  after them.. no training.. nothing... So?.. You'll forgive me, if    I send a  full grown pilot there, who had  Trailing to a gods be damned colony..and  not feel bad  about it...

  Dixie  looked a  bit   angry , but held her poise...but these  kids  had...

  Had what..Ensign?...  his voice  was  quiet, and firm..Lyri   unconsciously   moved her  chair  back from him a bit...they had, not a damn thing?.... only , whatever clothes they were  left in?..no creds...save  what little might have been on thier  wrist chip?..no weapons..Armor..food..shelter..no  leaders.. no  comrades... but you know what this batch did?... They  survived, with out becoming  'the  Stem"... sure?  they know  tricks now.. i bet there isn't on of them that can't pick a lock or  a pocket...and ..poor..poor    Captain Pickerton... only has a wrist full of chips , a uniform.. and knows  how to  fly a 5 million cred  fighter.....Now?... Go back, Unless you  think Musette's gonna get lucky.. then you can stay here...

 Dixie  's face got a bit   red.....I..think i'll stay here...
