Re: RECDEC 7
---Civie Section--->

Melia drifted in snagging a cup of black coffee, there was of course free coffee available in the MedLab for the staff. The gods only knew how much coffee the medics, doctors, and techs actually consumed and most days it was reasonable to assume that the staff had made at least some sort of attempt to replace their blood with coffee. After a battle and send off it was more of a concentrated effort. That said the coffee in the medlab was poor quality running in line with the old adage of you get quality or quantity not both.

She finds a booth, and sips on her coffee hugging the cup with both hands. Watching the coming and going of people around her. Setting the cup down after a moment she pulls out her vidboard, and starts a letter to Hunter pausing occasionally to look around the room.

Re: RECDEC 7
    Stepping onto th Rec Dec,  Shadow n moved to his Table with Beth  and Lyri..Lyri  checking her   COM  for the time, so she  isn't late for her SEC shift.

  ..so?.. what... You think  some hero Vampic  people are gonna  swoop in and  save  that Brachus  guy  ?

    Shadow Orders  a Coffee and a Club sandwich..Lyri gets  a  Danish and a  coffee..  Beth orders a coffee  with  jelly doughnut.

  Dana  sent  Sneak over to serve  them, she   smiled a bit  at the    table and seemed a bit awkward...hey?. don't trat us any differant  then the others..right?..

 ..yes  Sir, LC..be right back...

when she was  gone shadow  said with a bit of a grin,.....ok?... The Dmons and Vampics that ran... ran towards  the Roussians.... the Red Birds..they all gave up..I guess?.. maybe  a handful ran with the others ..but the Bottom line... there  has to be other  DArk Council ships out there?.. all we saw was a couple corvettes.. and the  Demon ships..where are the destroyers  The  LAir  ships   might be  big and Bad.. but   they can't  scout

 Lyri shurgged ... they have what?  2  decs  of    fighters  each.. lots of  scouting  can be  done..like  a  damn beehive...

 ..Just keep the CAM open on that  POD.. this should be fun

 Right  now the CAM  just showed the    front of the Pod.. they  could see   Brachu's  mangled legs.. and the  COM taped to the   console , happily blinking away as it  played the song.

 ..I don't get it?.... So?.. they come in with surrender lights on to Pick up Brachus....

 ..Then  we  board them , and if they attack  with Surredner lights on?... they and their  Budies  lose  some good wil...

 ..and If they sneak in?

 we see them on the CAM  and send in teh ships...

 ..and   if they flat ..sail in?.. we can attack them ..jeez?.. how  do they save Brachus?

 Shadow winks  as the  food  arrives,..they don't... he's just bait to  catch the fish  that got out of the net...

 Sneak put out the  food, and  Shadow  had her  scan his  wrist, giving her a  20 cred  chip  fo a tip.

Re: RECDEC 7
  they were   about half way done with thier  ' lunch' when    Beth Got a COM  call on her Vid Board.

  Beth looked at Shadow.....the Storm and  The crushing Arms.. just destroyed  a Vampic  destroyer... came in, low  power, no lights..They surprised them..no pods..no surviors...

  Shadow winked

 ..ok?.. you don't have that kinda  Juice...how  did you have ESN ships  stay behind

 ..your'er   right ..i don't . But.Captain Morris may have suggested the  rear guard..be a little bit more   ..'rear'... Captain Morris..he liked Lady...

Re: RECDEC 7
Melia finished her letter, and read over it. The vast majority spoke of Orria's exploits and adventures, the status of the fleet and specific people in grand and broad strokes. All info that wasn't hidden or secret. She mentions the new crew members briefly and talks about her promotion and recent work. She eyes her empty coffee mug and checks the time, paying she decides to head over to the med lab. With bait out, and a recent action there's always some thing extra that needs to be done, and there was little use in putting it off.

-----> From Hanger Dec

Zob was thinking a lot on what Roy said to him back on the hanger dec and it started to make some sense, it was this line of thought that almost caused him to miss his exit on the lift.

Zob awkwardly moved off from the lift and over to the Rec Dec area to get some breakfast that he didn't have time for himself he flagged down one of the waitresses on duty when he took a seat, "Could i please get some bacon and eggs with a side order of sausage links?" he asked the waitress on duty, for once he started to feel pretty good about himself.

Re: RECDEC 7
Zob took the coffee and for once cracked a small smile, "Thank you, i appreciate it i'm a bit scatter brained today it seems, im just so used to fighting all the time i tend to forget about the small things" he then noticed he was rambling which wasn't like him at all, "Sorry... im rambling, ill let you go do your job" he said to the waitress not wanting her to get in trouble.

Re: RECDEC 7
  Beth  Pushed her  Vid Board aside,..you trying to tell us... that you kne w bad  guys  were  out there.. when  no one  damn scout ship or fighter s saw  any

  nope?..didn't have a clue... but    I'm thinking, if that was our Admiral?.. we'd  try to get him back..right?... I'll thinking   there were picket ships out there on the  'Fuji-Everest corridor' side  of    the triangle..they'd  be safe  enough.. enterprising   Officers looking to move up the ladde3r... save  the DArk Council's  poster child?


 Lyri wiped her  mouth, looked  at Shadow  as she dropped the   napkin on the plate,..so? Lilit breaking   that bastard's  limbs, and you  with that COM.. that was  all...'just in case?"

  Shadow  Signaled  to Sneak for   Another Coffee... Then he Looked   pointedly  at Lyri.....Oh No..My dear Master Chief.... that was  done.... for fun.... My hands  were tied because of that civil war mess... and?  I don't give a damn who wins, as  long as they are knocking off each other..that's a good thing.... But I owed that bastard...  if  i could have  caught him on Anzio,  know one would have seen me  until it was time to  cast off..but..this was the best i can do....

 ..There  are  still three i want from that    night at the BAll... LT Octavia.... SGT MAJ  Luca... and   LT  Priss..she's a Pilot..they may even be  dead..but  i won't stop looking..

  Beth shakes her head,..so?..what if  the next one  comes in under  surrender  lights,, and broadcasts  that we   destroyed  a ship coming to aid the Pod?

 ..the captains show the Gun CAms of  a  dark ship slipping into , what is  now., APF  space..besides..if they  come in with surrender lights, they will be  boarded  and  captured

 ..geez?...did you think that up?.. how much of this  was Lilit's  idea?



  ..The breaking  of  arms  and Legs.. after that  she was good...

Re: RECDEC 7
  Lyri   smiels   a tiny bit,well?  I'm off to the SEC.....by the way  were  going  and  cutting across the  Triangle we should  reach  Fuji  space  in a little over a Day.. I  bet  we sweep up a few  Pirates  and slavers on the way..no one is expecting the Delta Fleets   to spread out and sweep  Like   we're doing.

 ..its  a   good  move.. save  time...every ship  we  capture or  destroy  helps  us..every  APF  citizen we save, makes the APF  stronger...and?  we'll send  a message to those  who want to work with the Empire.. damn scary  thing, to see a wall of Metal   sweeping across The Black at you..

 beth    Got  Up, they Both  gave     Shadow a  quick  Hug and left the LC.

 Sneak appeared  and began to clean the  table of the LAdy's    dishes  and  he said,..hey, Sneak?... no hurry, but  when you go back to the  stalls,  get me a  bowl  of..whatever  pasta they have  today , and   top it  with White sauce  ?..But take yout time  , I have  a couple hours  before i have to go to the Hanger Dec..

 .. Sure  Mr  Shadow... I mean..LC?... be right back...

 take your time.. when she left witht eh Dishes,  Shadow  unrolled his own Vidboard, and tapped into  the Feed.....he  zoomed out   enough that the Pod looked  like  a sesame seed, so he could see   around it... he wished  now that they  would have  flipped  it out of the hanger, rather then  push it out.. the pod going  end over  end  would have added to the discomfort. But?  One  cannot thing of everything.

 ..he  couldn't see them..but he   knew  ships of  Delta 4 were out there...there  had  to be  one..maybe  two more vermin to ctach... unless  those Vermin  thought better of it, after they Lost  Contact  with The Sable Claw...

  Sneak  came back with a big  bowl of shells with  the white sauce on and two  buttered   rolls...there you  go, LC... what are you watching....?

 ..Thank you , Sneak.... I guess you never  got  to fish?.. well..there are two  ways to fish.. there is  the  fisherman, who uses  artificial  Lures, and  casts, and  casts  and casts.. waiting  for   something to take the bait?  Or the Lazy man's  way.. stick  some  bail on a Hook,  set a Bobber  and  cvast it out.. and  drink a bweer or  eat a sandwhich  while you wait to see the Bobber move..

 He taps the  brachus dot,..that's  my Bait... I am waiting to see what all we  can catch... got one fisg  so far... but?.. like all bait.. sooner or  later  the  bait  dies..and you go home with what you caught.

 The Girl Nodded she   frowned a bit,..they used to  do that with us Girls?...  some high rollers  would come down to slum?..maybe hit the drug market or  blackmarket...and there were always  people looking  for    young  girls and   kids...

 ..if they checked out..some of us got  sold.... if they didn't  check out... they   had  us 'go back home"... and  when we  got  fsar enough away from the Compound, the  scum would swoop in , try to bribe us  with sweet talk, clothes, food and creds....then the 'blindsiders ' came in.... snipers  and     Knife   folks   take them out.. cash slash them, steal thier  cars and  anything  else we could sue.. and  the   SEC  would find the bodies  on the  daily sweeps..there was an unspoken agreement  since that new  guy took over... if you  knocked off  some  scum..you left the bodies to be  found by SEC.... some folks. where to high profile and   went out the   ejection tubes or  an Blackmarket , airlock

 ..yep?.. Understand  where you  are  coming from...we had  scum in my neighborhood... we made alot of them disappear, but there were always more?... Didn't stop  us any?... We figured  everyone of them we eliminated..was one less  that could hurt someone...

 She smiled a bit,..you would  do well in The Stem...  and she noved off to take an order from some Civies  who sat down.

  Shadow  moved the Vidbaor  over between he  and Zob... Sneal popped  up like a 'whack a mole' asking Zob  if he needed  anything,  she would  react accordingly   and move off.

  ..see that little shiny dot?.. That's my Buddy Brachus... drifting  in the flow.. waiting  for some   nice  juicey   Vampic to come in and try to save him

  Delta 4  got one so far.. a destroyer.. won't be long before the rear guard has to let him go though.. about the   time  I have  to go back on duty, will be about the  time   the rear guard  has to  move on..Then?  if they want him..they  can have him..damn shame  really..

Re: RECDEC 7
Zob shook his head at Sneak indicating he was taken care of but thanked her anyways, "Hes not having a good time" he chuckled as he looked at the vidboard closely, "The point got across rather well i think, even if by some miracle that he gets rescued hes not gonna have a warm welcome back home"

Re: RECDEC 7
  Shadow    chuckled,well?  I don't see him being rescued ..... but   we'll know if he is.... he  smiled  as he  ate his pasta, offering one or the  rolls to Zob.

what....do  .... we  have..here.... coming into view  was  another  Destroyer.. Shadow was  tapping on his COM to  Beth  to let Morris and Rivets know..

 dammit !    The  rear Guard   Must have left.. ... well... we won't get any more?

 he   took a mouth  full of   pasta,..fishing like that..you know?  he talked  around the  Pasta.

 ..cast your  arm off  all day. and get nothing..or?  sit  by a tree watchign a a bobber , that never  moves.... Soem folks  like to use  a Bow?.. but you  need  to see the fish for that?... Nets  are good... but there is another  way.. sorta..frowned   upon though...

 Beth  COMed BAck says she  tied    Uden's Promise  into the feed  as well...

 ..look at that?  as  bold as   can be.. no  surrender lights... all stealthy  and stuff....

 The  Destroyer  sent out  a   pair  of Shuttles,  They closed in on the   Pod   and  gather it in from thier   ramp way using MAg-anchors  to pull it  along...

 didn't think they would  reach it in time..shows you?  Officers  don't know everything..right?

   The  shuttles    moved slowly..took a good   10 minutes  to get.. the POD inside the Destroyer's hanger  Dec.....

  Shadow  split the screen  between    Brachus's point of view and the   view  from the outside.

 ..Beth's a damn smart Girl..came  up with those Buoys  and stuff?... just so happens, the area  where we let the Pod  go?.. has a  couple in the area... so we get so see  all this... Bet these  guys  will be heroes?.. you know?  Saving  thier  Leader...

 from the view in the  POd , they could see, but  not hear..Brachus was excited,, his broken limbs   trying to  Move..  The Ship's captain was  at the Pod waving arms  around shouting orders...  what small ground crew  destroyers  might have  were   pushing hover  arts   towards the POs  to     open the canopy.

  Shadow looked at   Zob, one cheek full off  pasta  as he nodded with a wink...

 The   Glass popped off      the CAptain  did  a Vampic  salute  and   waved    people over, one   fellow  got  a wrench and Smashed the COM.. the    worked on the   restraints  , reached in to Lift Brachus out... The Screen   went      white,, then Red...then Black...

  Shadow calmly reached  over  for  'full screen  as the Destroyer  Buckled In the  Middle ,  Fire and explosions.  traveling both  ways  , both stern bow...gouts of flame , flashes   quickly as   metal and Bodies were shit into the Black..

 where  was  I?.... Oh?  the other way?.. Hicks   would toss  Dynomite into the water, then just pick up the   dead fish that flaoted to the top....no  sport in that?>. but if you're  hungry enough  you might  do it...

 oh?... Rivets?.. he liked Lady too..didn't like that whole song thing... Rivets was  in charge of   Mech  support..part of that was  rigging   explosives  to breach    walls  and  doors?.... Did you know.. you can  fit two war ehads of a    CAp shop class   torpedo , into the bottom of  a survival pod?.. I didn't know  that..i do now though...


 he points his  fork  at the     broken bits of destroyer.. ..they won't ever know though.. then  pilot's seat  was on a weight  sensitive   trigger... one of the reasons  we had to   do the whole, leg and arm breaking thing?..Lilit  would have done it  for  fun...,,but .. firmly seated   with his   weight  on the trigger... all it would take is some  kind person to take the  poor guy out of the seat

    Shadow's COM  beeped  he opened it to speaker.....Shadow here....

 ..i thank you for the   reward of allowing me  to see, that the insult to My   Daughter  as been  put to right...

 .. you were every bit  a part of that, as the rest of us... I am Glad you Liked it...

 Beth  COMed....You nut ball!..that was great!

 ..thanks... But Rivets the guy who came up with that...

 Lyri's voice   was in the back round.....damn shame  we didn't  get a good pic of thier  faces...

 yep... as  far  as the   pod and  Destroyer  goes.... They were 500 miles inside  Nivar  space..should have reported  themselves... now?  that's  two destroyers that are gone.. and they can't even admit  were they lost them

 the COM s  went  off..

 Si's   Voice   said,..you are a scary  person, LC... well  done...

 didn't  do anything ma'am..Just programmed  a COM is all...

 After the COM  went   quiet, he looked at Zob with a smile.....wanna see it again!..

 and he    hit replay  as he   dug into his pasta with glee.

Re: RECDEC 7
Zob politely declines the pasta roll as his bacon and eggs arrives at the table at which point he took a bite and swallowed as he watched the feed on the vid board after watching the explosion he just started laughing, "That is good stuff right there!" he said between breaths... after catching his breath he then took another bite, "You bet i wanna watch that again that is priceless" he said as he watched the video again it was just as good as the first time around.

 ..they never knew  what hit them..I bet that captain was  already  thinging he was gonna buy a new   castle with his reward..maybe   a Hot  tub , shaped like a coffin.

  Lt  McNeil and LT  Hirr  sat looking over  Vidboards    and   were   talking and showing each either things from thier  screens.

 Shadow    watched  the  Vid  a few more times.... well..one thing  for sure?... The VAmoic, who  won't get  to see these  Vids.. will have to wonder what happened..they can only gue3ss  at teh first ship...and   wonder   about the  2nd..but...what if   most pointed about this.... The  Dark Council still has a strong  grip on Vampic military..and   two of the loyalists paid for that with   thier ships and crew...sort of a shame though..would have liked   Brachus  to  listen to that Music another  10 hours or so,,,,

A little while later, Roy turned up, back In his more comfortable casual duty uniform, with Larry following alongside (minus his increasingly-decorated collar).

The pair made the rounds of the security personnel on deck, first those on duty and then those relaxing, Roy chatting easily with them to get a sense of morale in the aftermath of the Vampic attacks and the personnel lost...and to try and get people more accustomed to Larry, as it became more and more apparent that the larg's presence on the Hermes was a long-term prospect.

Walking with Justin and Harry she came with them "Lt. Kase...I'd cling on your elbow, but my arms are full of my home work...all 3 books" she smiled at him, but she did give him a friendly hip check.  She then moved to let him sit with Harry as she sat opposite and spread her books out.  She picked up book one "Well this is the easy one on flying basics.  used the same one in the shuttle pilot lessons,  That one is not a problem" She picked up number 2 book which was the thickest on "This is the one straining my brain" she opened it to the 14th page.  "This one is for figuring out the formula ration for standard banking maneuvers in zero gravity..." She pointed to the mathematical formula written there that was harder than Chinese Algebra.  'Plan for X    (3.14/AB,  A=Speed, B=Pitch) x (45' rounded to the X meter) = >/< 90' bank.  left or right?'"Pi divided by the speed and pitch multiplied by 45 degrees rounded to the whatever meter is equal more or less the 90 degree bank.  Is it left or right." she just looked exasperated "To figure this out in 2 heartbeats at the moment is making me wanna scream"
