   Hacks   lips  were in a  thin line as  Izzy answered..perhaps? that is  your Problem in a Nitshell?.. not paying attention, perhaps you should just transfer as a trooper and leave  your  media aspirations behind...

 Corpral Call?  Did  anyone assault a  Reporter on the rec dec?

 ..no Sir,  The  reporter and her Camera man  did  open the feeds   to  a Vid  that will target some of our  folks  alot more easily now... The LC and the Ambassador  neutralized thier  equipment and sent them to  hanger   Dec  to leave..which was re- enforced by the SM.... The Camera man was injured  as he was given his   equipment.. Nagy had to carry it  down for him... and Sir?  There were no  chairs flying...

 ..So?  another  ..'misreported' bit of news...  he turned to Izzy,..I do not know  why they sent you here... the only fact you are here is you are from an ESN vessel..that doesn't mean you can't be turned.... If you have an ax to grind  with my people..you damn well keep it out of the airwaves.... Maxie..her family and  friends, are paying for her foolisness..of course , we are reaping alot of EDT, to it balances out...

 You did  good  work at the Signing  and sentencing  of Adem....but keep this in mind? this is total war... there isn't anything that you can  call.non-combatant..We do not suffer attacks on us , lightly, and we pay back in spades. Beth , what's   Earth like right now...

 Fighting all over the place..Dallas, LA, StLouis and newyork are the biggest places in America..Miami has some flare up.. and there are random shootings reported.. One of the earth side  reporters  said, there  have been 4 EDT killed for every non  EDT..looking at the stats  for myself, after hacking into thier Stats folks?... most of the Non-EDT are Civies  who are  related to EDT  people, or  EDT  capped for some reason... I don't think they capped  them by accident.

  beth?.. Go ahead  and help get the   war room  set up.. Master Chief  get your people set for the Hanger dec... Ellen can  hang here until we sort out who is going  in the shuttle.

 beth gathered her  chest armor  and   sidearm as well  as three Vidboards  before making her  way to the   door.

 ..Go now  Ensign Sakura....  if  you are assigned to a shuttle, becareful out there.. I think as it stands,  we might not be bringing any more reporters aboard..you are 'grandfathered in'... lets see what you do the rest of the time you have here.

  Then he  turned  and  hit the SEC  COM....Captain Si.. send   any more info  about  the enemy to my COM.. I am Going to   address the troops  so they can  prepare as needed...

 Already  Done, Admiral..

”They wouldn’t let me even if I wanted to” Izzy quietly responded knowing that not only were her scores most likely too low to qualify as a marine that the SEC that had turned on her the moment she’d set foot on the ship wouldn’t welcome her in amongst their ranks just because she no longer carried a camera. To this end she was unsurprised when the trooper painted the altercation between Shadow and Wendy in an entirely different light and she was once again accused of making the ESN look bad, which was something she was still yet to do with her having dropped her only attempt a story and reporting on nothing but the balls and combat footage. In short if the ESN looked bad then it was it’s own fault and not by her own hand.

With so much turmoil taking place back in the states including her home city of LA, it was a bit of a relief to know that her mom was visiting aunt Rosie out of state. Though with that many dead as a result of the fighting it was starting to better resemble a civil war than a handful of riots.

With her being cleared to leave along with the comment that no further reporters would be coming aboard she would give him a bit of look as if to say that he would be lucky to get any wanting to join after today, especially if she got to speak to them first. Either way she would make her way out of SEC and head back to her quarters in order to change into her armour and collect her carbine. She wouldn’t bother with the rest of her gear as most likely all the spots on the shuttles were now taken, but at least she could do hangar defence.

From Med-Tech--post Elipsian-base mission

Roy was nearly to his quarters when he got the comm call from General Bale.  "Protocol violations?"  There was a sharp bark of laughter.  "That's rich...when did it become protocol for him to start fishing for patients on another ship?  And I'm pretty sure it's not protocol to cast aspersions about ambassadors, to their face.  His service record is dubious, General, and I was not about to allow him to even start in on one of my people, so I gave him a directive, as a member of the Corps Command Staff, which he disobeyed.  So I resorted to some minor physical encouragement for him to obey...bumped him with my chest and told him he should pack in preparation for a transfer.  Shadow, being Shadow, may have spoken out of turn...but I'm pretty sure a Fleet WC should be allowed to express his opinion on his own ship, even to a Colonel.  So if there was any violation, it was mine...and Fike's, for swooping in on one of Stefi's patients without her permission.  He wants to make a case out of it, I'll stand at the mast and stack my record up against his, any day."

He was inside his quarters at that point, and added, as he closed the door, "Considering the distressing tendency for his patients to wind up dead within six months of release, I'm sure he would prefer that we not start digging into specifics of his service and methods.  But there's no way in any Hell you want to reference that I'm letting him take Corporal Call."

   General  Bale  chuckled a few times through the  information.well.. there is a paper going throught he pipes  as  i speak....he has the choice of Matterhorn...Rainer or Taranaki... he..of  course  could choose to separate from service..he's  ben in about 80..But.. thank you for  handling that some of  our....less-then -calm people may have sent him out through the  Med tech  bodyparts  chute.

Roy grunted an affirmative.  "He's lucky you're handling his assignment.  I'd have had him checking inmates for venereal diseases at the Delta Penal Colony...but I'm satisfied that he's not somehow lobotomizing our combat troops."  He paused a moment, considering which one of those three could be the greatest risk for Fike's attentions...

"At any rate, General, thank you for taking a hand in this.  Bad enough fighting the damn Empire without having our own people messing things up for us....  He started shedding armor, getting cleaned up for the after party.

..Very Good  SM...Carry On, we'll see you at  the Party when the board makes its appearance.

 The General logged  off

.................


 Beth  was   about  the leave for the party  after   returning from her  quarters  after  a  quick shower.

 Warlrod is coming  to Bring Dusk and cheak on Shade..and Shadow too, I suppose.... Shadow's gonna want some answrs  about   a  white   fighter that can hide, calling him'Uncle'.

 Lyri came out from her Quarters  at the SEC... she  was  trying her  hair  with a  Towel.she  had on a Hermes  Tee Shirt and  Off  duty  pants, that sported her weapons  belt.

 so?..i was thinking?  we  should have  some kind of bet?... Does the Admiral sent the refguees  to  The  Delta's.. or does he  send them  to  Vampra, like he said.... Deltas?..is good. but were putting alot of elipsian  there...only about half of them are women and Kids...and thier women fight, just like  ours do?

 Nagy chuckled,don't forget, A ship load  of  Demons..300 of them were fighting until they surrendered.  has to be close to 1000 demon and  Lizard troops on that one warship...that's alot to put on them colony troops

"Either way sends a message...question is to whom, and what that message is.  Right now, I'm thinking Vampra is likely.  Sending them a ship full of surrendered Demons says two things, right off the bat..."We're tougher than your allies," and "We're so NOT afraid of you that we're sending you a ship load of reinforcements."  Demons surrendering is pretty rare, having hard evidence of it happening...in massive numbers...should rattle some cages on Vampra."

He shrugged, and added, "And if the Demons and Vampics despise each other as much as they claim to, it's gonna be a shipload of very motivated Demons against whatever military might the Vampics care to muster out against them.  Which sounds like a good time for us to attack, while the Vampics think they're beating down some Demon invaders."

He checked the positions of his sidearms and knives, back in casual uniform.  "But even if he opts to send them to Delta, that just tells the Demons there...plus these...that he actually DOES put some value on Demon lives.  And that's gonna have an impact once the war ends and we have to try and keep a peaceful status in place.  But, yeah...if he sends them to Delta, it better be with a shipload of reinforcements for the guards, as well.  I can think of a couple of volunteers I'd like to send for that duty..."

 she  heads out the door.

  Lyri chuckles as her  dog tags   jiggle against her shirt as  she  slips  on a Buttoned    shirt that is missing its sleeves,..one day that girl is gonna find some rich guy who thinks  he found the  perfect bubble head... and  She'll be rich  he'll be gone, and he'll wander what happened!

  when the elevator reached the Officers  dec.. both Door  opened.. Max and stiff  followed..on of the  guards  from the Engine  room strode up to stand in the Middle of the dec while the other  stood by the engine room doors.

 From the Bridge   one guard  came  down towards them  while the other  stood in the Middle of the   passage way  Two Guards  stood outside  the Admirals's Quarters, and  two across the Hall.

  reaching the door,  the guards  hit the button, the doors hissed open and the Smell of food  filled the air.. Te   general and  Maris   were taken  to   the left  end ot the table,, Maris  was cuffed by his ankle to the chair..  The General was not cuffed..  Nagy  walked across the room   while Madsen  stood  on the other  side.. the other guards  left to return to thier posts

AFTER post Elipsian battle tunnel run, rec deck breakfast, etc...

Roy walked into Security, grunting acknowledgement as he saw Lyri and Beth there.  "Should have expected to see you here," he grumbled...but the grin on his face showed it was more of a tease than a complaint.

"Glad you're here, though.  I've got someone for you to do some research on.  The Occui Provost that brought over Vaka's personal effects suggested that, should any lights go out on Everest, it would be appreciated if they went out for a black marketeer named Oggui who's been eluding Occui authorities for a while now.  Can you see what you can dig up on him?  Before you do, can you prep me a secure channel with Captain Messe on Everest?  She may have some information, as well..."

   There was a bit of a Giggle from Beth.Oggui?  why don't  they have  names  like fred or somehting?

 Lyri  just said  , dryly   I bet they  wonder why you don't have  a name like  Behtka  or somehting...

 ooooohhhh..Bethka?  That could be  my secret agent name!

 ..I check on Oggui... you get the Channel  for   Roy's  Girf friend...

 Looking at Roy,..you should dance with her at the Ball..and..you now...after.. her   eyebrows  went up and down.

  in  about  5 minutes,  Roy's  screen in his offcie  lit up..  A smilign  but  concerned  Face  looked  out at him.

 Ahhh! monsieur  Spencer! the  french Lilt in her  voice making his last name  sound exotic.....How is it that i can help you she smiles.. still concern in her  eyes.

Roy pointedly ignored the jibes about dancing with Messe, and the quips about names, just walking into his office.  When the screen lit up, he returned a pleasant, professional smile.  "Good to see you, Captain.  As you've probably heard, the Fleet is putting in at Everest for at least a couple of days.  I just wanted to check in with you...last time we were there, you expressed some frustration with the lighting levels.  Did the issues get resolved?  Or do I need to access some Corps resources to help with the issue?"  He opted to keep the references veiled for now, until he got a chance to find out if she could safely speak openly.

Roy nodded.  "We've got some techs that specialize in focused illumination...we should be able to help you get your problems resolved, either by switching out some lighting or by troubleshooting flaws in the system.  I also had someone request that I track down some items from an Occui dealer there...guy by the name of Oggui, but I don't remember hearing about him last time and I haven't seen any information on a storefront for him.  Any chance you could point me in the right direction?"  For now, at least, he wasn't going to let on that the 'item's he was supposed to retrieve was Oggui's life...they'd had enough experiences with compromised Lights Out managers that he was ready to hedge his bets.

  Will entered the SEC , with some waves   from the  two Lady Piltos  who went to  the   berths  to check  and see what was going on.

   Beth Looks  at Lyri  and she  just shrugged and  continued  to Look, bt  this time,  Beth was also working her magic to try and  find  Oggui.

  The Door Hissed  open again, Lirg  stepped in with Nugast,  the APe-man was ..maybe, an  inch shorter but  his shoulders , chest and   waist  thicker.

 Lirg points  to  Nugest as everyone looks up...Nugest whats to ge Hermes trooper... his CAptain say it is  OK if  SM Spancer  say it is ok...

 Nugest  smiled   an Ape Like  smile which looked a bit  scary  with a human face...Yes?... I learn many things.. I am not to eat Mess tech,,because that is only thier  names... I can eat food.. I am  happy to have chance, if SM  lets me?

 Lyri just stared  at the  two  ,over sized humanoids.. Lirg looking 'thinner' compared to the mass  and Muscle of the ape-man...she  Buzzed Roy to come out when he was ready.

"A mover and a shaker, that's the American phrase for it.  That would fit with what I was told about him.  Maybe you can give me some more information about where to find his operations at the football game.  The item I'm supposed to get from him is a matter of some family honor to a former crew-member, so I'd like to make sure it gets handled, you know?"

He glanced down at the buzz, then looked outside and raised an eyebrow in surprise.  Lirg didn't often come down to Security...he was welcome to, but since he served primarily as a boarding trooper, rather than on a SEC detail, his presence was noteworthy, in and of itself.  The Ape-Man standing next to him was truly a surprise...

But Lyri had only buzzed, she hadn't called, so it was apparently something that could wait for the call to be concluded...

"Is there anything we can bring from the Hermes to facilitate your duties?" he asked.  He was, after all, one of the few members of the Corps Command group that actually got around to see the various Marine units serving with the ESN in their widely dispersed stations...it was natural that, as part of Command, he should ask about the needs of the Marines...

   Messe   smiles  with a  quick  shake of her Hair that causes it to flick around...No, Mon  SM?  You are to here to  get things  From Everest!...It will be most helpful, if  ze things  that  we will talk about, will be  ..how they say..removed from the board?... I have   talked to the Person in Fuji, Etna  and Anzio.. they all say, to tread  careful, since we are ze home 'cops'... They suggested  we  watch  and  give you information , and you will fix  ze things that are causing lights to flutter?

.............

  Beth  was typing, she would look up and Nugest  who  would give her a  Silly grin..then do the same when Lyri looked up at him...

 Will looked at the two of them  as he  staples  papers  and shredded some....Hey Nugest?... how much you weigh?

 Lirg  looked at Nugest  who  shrugged with  his  big grin smile... he  fished out his dog tags and looked ...My animal tags say...they say.... his   eyebrows   moved as he tried to concentrate.

 Lirg   leaned  back to look at the tags, he reached over  and turned then  the other way....they called them ..'dog tags'..which is strange, because thiern  dog does not wear them?

 Nugest smiled and nodded..It says  450 lbs?  But this is old, before  i got on the drop ship..i am bigger  now, not  little  apelette

Roy nodded.  "We'll do what we can to clear up the power fluctuations, then...I've got a few specialists who should be able to isolate and remove the problems, once they're pointed in the right direction.  We should be docking in a few hours...if anything more comes up, let me know.  If you'd like, you can send a list of the problem areas to Lt. Morrow...we can start figuring out whose talents would be best applied to which problems.  But, otherwise, I'll expect to see you at the game, Captain."  He gave another professional smile and signed off, then stepped out of his office.

"Sgt. Lirg...and you've brought a new friend along.  To what do we owe the occasion?"  Nugest looked somewhat familiar, although Roy didn't know the Ape-folk well enough to be sure of who it was.

Roy nodded at the introduction.  "I remember you, Private, from down on that station.  And I've been saying, since way back, that we need all the peoples of the APF to learn to work together if this is going to work, in the long run.  That's a big part of why Sgt. Lirg is here."

He nodded again.  "We'll find a place for you.  I'm tempted to put you with Supe and his heavy gunner buddies, but that would involve sacrificing some mobility.  What kinds of rifles are you trained with?"  He wasn't sure what the Ape-folk were using for weapons...for all he knew, Nugest's 'rifle' could be an assault cannon...

Roy grinned.  "Sounds like a good start of training you for an anti-bacterial rifle. The projectile is smaller than your Pounder's...but you can fire a variety of munitions, and they all do a tremendous amount of damage."

He gave a nod.  "We'll get the paperwork taken care of, but welcome to the Hermes.  For now, I'd suggest sticking with Sgt. Lirg until you get familiar with the ship and the people.  Sergeant, please take him to QM to get an appropriate uniform in the works...we want people on shore leave to know he's one of us."

His comm went off, and he checked the message...initially, he looked satisfied about being at the game...then he got to the part about being Messe's escort to the ball and snorted softly, before shrugging resignedly.  He'd have to figure out when to take care of his Delta Night operations, as it sounded like the next two nights would have a lot going on...

Wiping the annoyed expression from his face, he looked to Nugest again.  "We'll assess your skills and figure out your best assignment after we're done with shoreleave...I've got duties that require me to be on the station for most of the leave, and nobody wants to give up shoreleave time to test skills and abilities.  And unless something goes massively wrong, we'll have time to integrate you with your assigned group pretty well before we actually go into combat."
