Re: Commander's  Quarters
 Shade   gave  Roy a Thumbs Up as he  sat next to  Shadow,  the spot opend  for Henry next to Melia.

    the  Admiral  takes a sip of  wine, as he swallowed  a bite of chicken...What   we need to do... as a Federation..is decide on this next course.. In the  end..no matter  what we  do, it will help the cause..But  we  Must  think of what we  want to stamp out?

 Hennings Nods  to  Beth, and waves a hand telling her to light up whatever she  felt like , On the Holomap that  hung in the  air  over the   center of the  square of tables.

 ..what we see here  firts.. is  Vampra... , Out  Past Anzio and  Aqra, the   space is Vast.. with  only three  real stars that provide  light and warmth... Vampra and her Moon, as  well as another  Planet Kaos..are hope to the Vampic  race.. there is  another planet called  Oasis ... it  is over the    'line' into  Largran Space... we know  nothing of it, save they it does get more sun from a LArgran star..it is a settled planet.. and is more or less....independent... rumors have it, there is a  Native race.. and  some humans who have a colony there...they trade with LArgrans and Vampics  and  any brave  merchant that travels out that way...It is a damn good  Jump off point  for Largran space...Settling the Vampic  system would go along  way to gibing us a Back door   into Empire space...

 Bornberry asks,..what would  entail 'settling'...

 Hack gave a shrug....Aiding the Vampic  Rebels in taking over the Homeworld..or?.. if the rebels  cannot   hold thier own...we'd have to neutralize Vampra, as  we  did  the Hillites and Hyrians...or?..if there is  enough support.. as we did  with Nivar..


 Hennings  nodded  once more to Beth, and the Epsilan and Zeta  quads  Lit up.... Both of these Quads  have  ESN  Carrier/stations, the last  two of the  'Steel  Ring'  , The Angels  built to help slow, or stop Empire movements.. rumors  from both, is  there are  contentions  aboard, between   EDT and   APF  forces..The planets there are  more or less in Empire hands...we would have to  free them..one way or the other...

The  next area  lit up, was the edge of Paradise  space...here we have the far edge of Paradise  Space.. Both the  Red and Blue Moon are APF.. Paradise   stands  independant..thank's to us... a trip there to  eliminate the  squadrons of   Empire  ships. Mostly  Demons , who are still attacking  and raiding  , shipping there...a Good  Will trip, more or less..with an underlying   need..

 'Admiral' Bruce asked...and  what would that be?

 Commander Si  spoke up...to show the Angel people, we have not forgotten them..and to  whittle away more of the   Empires  stretched  fingers... but...the Agra Techs  we have, have begun to get serious success of the growth of  the plants   used in making  Derma foam and Derma plast..Med techs  now have  small kits with  ampules , they  are  able to inject into wounds, per race type... this  quadruples the  manufacture loads, since they  can make all the same type..while the ampules are geared to a race?... For instance, Occui, Sanri.. Hyrian, Demon.. those who aren't  normally compatible with Human/Angel ..thus  helping  us, keep our allies   alive  in and after battle...It would be good to go to the Moons to get more seeds and flowers.., there is also a chance to get  alot more  Angels troops  and  a few ships, since the fleet would be there.. and they would not have to cross The Balck to join us....

 Beth lit up  the next area..  this is , what we have  Called,  'The Matterhorn Line'..it starts  at the    'corner' of   Largran space  and the  Alpha  and Gamma quad..It reaches  from there  all the way to Epsilon  with Creshian space  in the Middle.. and the Demon/Gamma/Epsilon  corner... Rainer has not sent  ships into the  Gamma  Quad  for a while..  Van Ros  Has  done a damn good  job  rebuilding  the  Matterhorn..but it has been bloody..Apefolks , Gava and Naragrans are still finding pockets of   Demons  , Creshians  and  UEs.. they are eliminated on sight.. pirates and such that are  found to be aiding  them are summarily executed .. thier ships added to the Gamma fleet as   scouts   to patrol the Line..its the  weakest point in our  'ring of steel'..because  it  runs across the face of  all three  Major  , Empire races.. a sweep through there.. would help Von Ros in a big way...but, we would  need to consider  the other  areas  near there, that need attention as well.

 amother  area Lit  up.....The Hillite system... pain in our ass... we have swapped out  ESN cap ships , with Captured  enemy vessels  to keep the blockade up... it is working... H3  is  ssuffering from being Nuked..As the Sanri and Occui predicted, alot of aid is trying to get to  H3.. which  gets captured  and aids the flweets, not  to mention addign ships to the Blockade fleet..or transports   for  the Fleet, for supplies...The other two hillite planets are in a very bad  way... food can be grown there.. but  there is no outside resources  comign in..or at least, very few...

 Hack pointed at the Holomap with his fork..we have been intercepting  close  to 90 % of the Good s  goign   in..and  about 95% of those trying to escape... every now and then  we send in agents with a battered  transport, with food  or Med tech... we take about half of what the ship carried,, damage the transport enough  to make it look like it ran the blockade... then  they make a crash landing , bear  a bigger   city... the results  are , Hillites  killing  Hillites  to get the  supplies....meanwhile the agents  slip off, and began whittling away at the hard core. Hittlite Leaders... it is a slow process, to be sure. But it is   effective... there are a few Hillites   entering  APF service, if for no reason, then to  stop the blockade and save thier three Homeworlds..

 Hennings  had Beth light up  the asteroid field,..This is  the nest of the Viper Fleet...  they have  passages  through the ever moving   rocks.. even somethign as small as a fighter  can't  make it through, with out knowing the  pattern... what makes it worse, is the  EDT have  armed some of the asteroids.. so a corvette or sloop trying to get through could be shelled  from one of those Rocks, from People  we have   captured  and questioned....and I mean questioned in the way that our Good LC would do it...there are at least 3  ways in, if you know the pattern... there are   flashes of light that give  a ship the path to take, but if you are  too slow  in following..well....The field  has  as many  hulks  in it as rocks... the EDT  peopel  will strip what they can from the   wounded or destroyed ships..leaving some  as  a 'warning'

 Then the last   spot  lit up.. The Sol, System,..this is  by far, the smallest area, yet the toughest nut for us to crack... for ..maybe 60% of the humans in the fleet..Earth is their Homeworld... But Olympus is a bastion for  EDT/Demon activity...... if  we  could  retake Olympus.. we  would cut Earth off from Demonic   influence, as we would  regain  Saturn Jupiter's moons, Pluto, and MArs... But.. we would risk  fighting the  Forces of  GE-FI  and the   SSN... I do not see us  retaking Earth, with out removing GE-FI and his   motherships... this would be a long..costly engagement , and  would  Give the   Empire  a chance to  sweep into  to some of the areas  I just  explained..

Re: Commander's  Quarters
Henry slipped in quietly and took his seat, still feeling a bit out of place when the high command met in conclave. Mila took it all in her stride, curling up comfortably on the floor.

He listened to the discussion, paying particular attention to Commander Si's talk of medicinal plants.

 Shadow looked   Sheepish as he glanced  at   the  others  and shrugged.

Re: Commander's  Quarters
"Yes, General Bale," replied Henry.

"The matter was brought up at the conference we attended. The creature's handler was there, very upset. As we had been discussing the uses and misuses of the technology, I pointed out that covert attacks were precisely how our enemies operate and that Larry - who is not implanted and does not have a handler - had no way of alerting anyone to a potential threat save attacking it. Had we been warned they'd be practising surveillance on the beach party, we would have known to stop Larry from attacking it. They seemed to get the point: I don't think they'd realised just how real the threat is to those who are out in the Black, in the field.

Re: Commander's  Quarters
Orria stayed seated, "Ambassador Shade says we should go to Vera and remove Adem and Everet from leading. The pure Verian's who want to be APF should be taking over. Then we will get lots more Troopers and Ships to help." She says loudly and clearly trying to enunciate and say things like the adults.

Re: Commander's  Quarters
  Bale Nodded,..thank you.. I was   concerned, as there was a report of Bio-Tech SEC  trying to Bring  Larry in for testing..they seemed  abit  put out at the insulting what they were handled... his eyes shifted to Shadow.

 ... Those test  animals  die all the time.. 9 hell's , they kills  some, as theyb 'test the limits'... as  far as Larry goes?.. there was no insults..just warnings.. and.. to be fair, they didn't have enough people there to take Larry...and that's not counting how many  Hermes  folks were  at the party.

 Bale's eyes shifted to Henry again.

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

 After Orria's translation , they looked at Shadow, who   held up a hand in 'stop ' motion  then nodding to Orria, who was   the  'Official' Translator.

 Shade, without standing , says  some more    grinds  and  bleeps

Re: Commander's  Quarters
"Verian Troops and Ships would be strong and very scary with the right leaders." she starts, taking a breath. "If leaders on Vera do not change, the fleet being there will let the Blue Verian's join us, because Adem can't stop them." she explains looking about the room then back at Shade.

Re: Commander's  Quarters
  Shade  Gives her  a Thumbs Up.. again folks  trun to look at Shadow  who refuses to give  even a hint, of what the translator said.

  Hack  loked at the others,well?  there is another spot ?.. which would  mean going towards  Bura... witht he Hillite  system close, Everest on the way.. maybe a stop ay Uden? Before we go to Vera..... Hyria?.... and  back  door to Anzio, to Vampra

  The Commander   says,If would  come  down to which people  you want to try and load up on?.. More Verians..or  More Angels, since to locations  are  across the Galaxy from each other?

...

 Hennings  Looked at  Henry,did you see   any people   within Bio-tech, that would be  an Asset  to bring  with us?...Military wise?

Re: Commander's  Quarters
Roy looked up from his vid-board, with a grim smile.  "He may have been in the Army, but I agree with George Patton...I hate paying for the same real estate twice.  We've got a large enough force now that we can spare part of it for crisis management behind our lines, and I think that's a smart move to make.  But we absolutely can't afford to take the whole Fleet off the front lines and give the Demons a chance to reclaim domain.  Speaking from a strategic point of view, the Angels have been fighting this war for millenia, and not really making much headway...the Verians aren't as numerous, certainly, but they bring a very different fighting style to the war than the Angels...at least, the Verians from Uden do.  We all saw what kind of a fight the Vera Angels put up.  And given the losses they suffered in that battle, Adem's leadership position could be pretty shaky, depending on whether the Verians think the loss was his fault for poor leadership and preparation, or our fault for antagonizing the Demons and their allies...but given that several other worlds have been similarly in the line of fire and didn't lose half their cap ships in a single battle, I think we can make a good case for Adem being a lousy leader."

He cleared his throat a little, and added, "Bringing the Verians into the war bolsters Everest.  If we can get the Verians and Hyrians to work together, Beta Quad could become a VERY dangerous place for EDT and Demon allies to try and do anything.  We get Beta Quad in order and internally reinforced, then sweep on through.  Go check on that asteroid field and see what we can do about it...maybe Shadow can tag an EDT transport going in and Beth can use the tag signal to chart a course, but at the very least we go rattle the cage on the EDT again.  See how things are looking in the Vampra System, whether the rebel faction is holding its own or not, either help them get on top of things or else give them a chance to join us and then bomb Vampra until it glows.  Sweep on through to Anzio, make sure things are stable there, get a read on Oasis, see if we can get a good beachhead to start in on the Largrans.  Any ships we send to help Paradise can either rejoin us at Anzio, or can head back toward the Sol System and interdict Olympus...we'll make up some of the lost numbers from the Verians, maybe even from the Hyrians and Nivarians when we go back through Beta Quad...if we're really lucky, the Vampics will have settled their civil war and can send a bunch of ships with us against the Largrans.  But we've got to keep the heat on the Demons, and giving them a chance to prove to yet another ally that they aren't going to come help when the Delta Fleet comes calling seems like a good way to do it.  May not do anything against the Demons directly...but after we took out three or four nest ships, the Avians kinda dropped out of the war.  The Creshians took a huge loss with their nest ship at Matterhorn...and the Demons have done nothing in response to even show a token level of dedication to their allies.  I'm pretty sure the Largrans will wind up fighting on their own, as well...and that may wind up nullifying them as combatants, when they realize their allies aren't all that allied with them."

He shrugged, and stated, "My suggestion...preference...vote...whatever you want to call it...is to get right back to where we were and pick up the stick again, and start swinging.  A few strategic detours along the way would be smart.  But giving the Demons room to breathe again?  That just feels like we're asking for the war to take a few more decades to be wrapped up."

Re: Commander's  Quarters
  Hack Nodded as he listened to Roy  and  Nodded... Beth was  getting input from those who were on COM  connect.

  ..That is a very good   way to look at it, SM.  I do  dislike the idea  for splitting the fleet....we have been allowing   carrier/stations  to keep  Cap ships they were building, and sending some captured  ships  to bolster thier  defenses ..perhaps  we can use a few of those....

 his eyes  shifting to  Beta Quad, and Vera.  If  we  head to Vera.. we'll have some cleanign up to do on the way..and?..maybe..pull that  rotten tooth named Lady V


 he waited  for   the rest  to have input  as he took anothe r Bite of chicken

Re: Commander's  Quarters
"There was a large bird of prey which could be a useful scout in atmosphere," said Henry, "And a fascinating feathered serpent which had quite a lot of potential. I don't know how interested their handlers would be in field service rather than research, though. We can but ask... I've managed, sort of."

Despite getting called the 'warrior professor' Henry knew he was not a fighting man, possibly even more of a liability than an asset.

  The Admiral smiled  at Henry, ..Good, when you get the chance... ask them if they would wish to  test themselevs in the field..please... make sure they understand, that getting   eaten by a large  is one of the manythihngs that could happen in the field, should they not wish to  take the chance, I will fully understand... if they  want to  roll the dice.. we can get them here with one of the  picket  ships.

Re: Commander's  Quarters
 Admiral Hennings   looked towards  Shadow,..LC?... You are more then a bit quiet.

 Aye, Sir... Just a bit Tried, we  be good to sleep in my own bed tonight

 BAle   chuckled ,or..Just sleep?

 The  LC smiles a  bit. The rest of the Dinner , is spent  talking  about ships   and   rec decs  and crews. from time to time.  Roy  or  Shadow  or   Henry is asked  by thier people.

 Commander Si comments on Orria  getting better  and better  at  translation of  the Ambassador.

   a bit  after   desert, which was a choice  of Cheesecake  or  a Burian Pudding  , that was....of course..green. but tasted   like  dark chocolate ( shade and Orria  hand  two helpings)

   The Admiral said,..I THank you all for coming..  once  Beth gets  the  Comments  from the other APF leaders, I will announce were  we  are going to sail..

  Catching the Dismissile , Shadow   stands.. ..Shade loooked up with grey eyes  as he snagged   him and Orria another   bowl of  Burian Pudding.

 Commander Si   laughed,..  they can each  take the Bowl with them..I'm sure the Mess  will  do just fine  without the bowls..

 Shade GAve a thumbs up...

 They left..The Admirals     began to filter out...

 Shadow  to shadow's Quarters.>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

Re: Commander's  Quarters
Henry thanked Admiral Hack for inviting them, woke up Mila who had gone to sleep on his feet, and made his way back to his own quarters., feeling that he'd probably eaten a little bit too much Burian pudding.

Re: Commander's  Quarters
Sarah greets Commander Si, "Thank you Commander." Moving to the bar and finding herself a glass of wine.

"Yes it is we past all our benchmarks after leaving port, and our new additions seem to be settling in nicely for the time. We took the time between embarking and now to run a few simulations and do crew efficiency evaluations in each section. Overall they did very well, they are a fine crew." She indicates LT Termaine, "Admiral, this is my tactical officer, LT Termaine.  I asked him along to this meeting as my aide, and to give him some experience with command level meetings and conferences."

Given the formal dinner setting Scotty extended his hand, "A pleasure to meet you in person, Admiral. Thank you for allowing me to join you."

Re: Commander's  Quarters
  The Admiral  as well as Admiral Hennings   shook his hand,  The Commander  was htere  as she nodded that they met at the door.

   The Chef   appearded at   Hack's shoulder,..Ahh, yest, pelase   bring   out the Food.. I will  send out the COM   once  we have    our  first helpign   served?.. we can  eat while we talk  and   willt the other   3   who command  the   other three  sections.. do not be afraid to add  questions or Coments... either of you...

 his eyes shift from  Sarah to Termaine

 then  he motioned for everyone to take a seat.. I  would  have  My SM and   LC  here  as well, but I am keeping this a bit small after   a recent  incident

 the chocies   were   steak or   Fish.... mashed or  baked  potatoes,  sides  of   Corn  or  fat  Burian Green beans   as ell as  a sald  with a caddy of dressing    on the table.. desert would be   Blue berry pie, or  'apple' pie.

 once here one had   food and drink    Hack oepned the COMs..   voices   addressed them, Hack introduced  the board   as well as Sarah and  her aid... as   people   talked and  ate,  HAck said for all ships to have a sweep on any  people they  picked up from Sol System in the last 2 to 3 months..he went on to explain the   German's  and thier   fate ( more or less) ..

 as others   chimed in  with  any results they had.. Hack would begin the meeting in Earnest....The information we have on Lady V, is her stronghold is in the damn  Asteroid field ..I have  an Idea  how to deal with  that..but  our  first  stop  is goign to  be Bura..  I want us  to lay in supplies...  Emmie's transport company  is   bringing   goods  from  fuji to trade    at Bura.. as well as  get  Burian foodstuff, wood clothing  from  them... we  also will help them deal with somehting going on at thier North Pole , from there  we  will go to the Hillite system and deal with  Lady V..one way or another.

 another  reason why we  are going there, is somewhat important ..  There  is alot of Burian Troops...  Purebred   small  Green folks.. Green Angels  and   Green have breeds between  the two..  The  APF folks who are helping settle there.. might have some  Volunteers.. but   Bura  wants  in this war... so? The Hermes is   going to  pick up a  Unit  of  Burian  troops to take the place of the  Germans... and? maybe  a few more... I would suggest, if you need people pick some up. let them know Bura  is welcome in the fleet.   As some of you know?  they have  very good  fighter pilots  i have a few  right now? I may take on a couple extra..

 Then he left the floor open  for others  to speak

Re: Commander's  Quarters
In reply to Dinner (msg # 277):

Sarah and Scotty both ordered their food and sat back to listen in, at the Admiral's bidding she sent a rapid comtext to LC Harrington back on the Ironwood to check all crew, specifically new crew members against the Admiral's criterion. She trusted her crew with her life, but situations like these one couldn't be too careful. For any warship a single traitor could be catastrophic, on her smaller and more lightly crewed Corvette it was very easy for a traitor to take things from hindering an operation to outright disrupting an operation. She watched for her comm to light up with LC Harrington's results.

She listened to the Admiral's plan, "Entering the asteroid field would greatly diminish the abilities of the Ironwood more so than most due to the navigational nightmare that is the asteroid field, and our reliance on our prototype engines. However our forward armament could be effectively used to blast a path through the field. On the note of the Burian's if we can field a ship for them I have at least two people who I would be willing to recommend for promotion and placement on a larger vessel in either their current roles or expanded ones. That could allow me to take on a few Burian officers to fill their roles." Of course, she was thinking of LC Harrington, and LT Termaine. They'd shown a particular aptitude for leadership, and while she'd hate to lose them she wasn't going to set them back like that, other than that it would open up slots for either possibly a few Burian specialists to come aboard the Ironwood and allow the Alpha Fleet to demonstrate its acceptance of the aid. Still she kept the names to herself, unless asked. There were appropriate times to praise subordinates but this meeting wasn't that.

---

LT Termaine sat quietly taking note of the environment and the conduct of others, until the note of punching a hole in the asteroid field came up. "I'd have to look at it a bit more, but I am confident my gunner crews could punch a hole at least big enough for a corvette and fighters to get through, bigger than that is hugely problematic as we begin to get beyond the ability of the computer to track that many targets, and then eliminate them."

Re: Commander's  Quarters
 listening to the  Coments  from the Ironwood's people,  The Admiral  would saw  as he  sipped  some coffee,..the  asteroid  field is  a  roilign mass of  rocks.. there  seems to  be a pattern, we have  yet to crack... but the Viper  Fleet seems to have  set up  flash beacons.. that tell a   craft were to  go to get through.. we had a Pilto?.. Kase?  I think it was.. almost try to enter, but  the cost   for  failure  would have been to high... Tracking ships  entering  hasn't helped..  One  of Fuji's  destroyer s trailed   a Brand  spanking new   EDT   Cap ship into that , mess... the destroyer was  Lost  after the   first hit  crippled it..and   dozens of hits with in the next 30 minutes destroyed it.. the destroyer's shuttle  made it out  with 7  people, all from Med Tech...

 The Commander  looked over the table  with her bluegreen eyes,..as  if  to  taunt us.. the   EDT  sat there in the field , salvaging the  Destroyer , down to the last rivet.. they send  12  Life Pods out towards the  blockade ships.. with   40 some   bodies in..all dead.. we don't know   what hapened to the  rest.. bu rumors of Empire  troops inside the Field  would give  us an idea...

 ..As  I have said, i have  an idea  how to deal with his..but   we'll find out when we get there... the worst it  can   do is  be  another failure...

  Hennings  spoke up We have records  of    ships and fighters  trying to blsst there  way through.. but it   never helped.. there a re Vid Feeds  of  LAdy V laughing..

 Towards  the  end, The Admiral    wished the Commanders  a good Night.

  as they began thier  deserts  The Admiral turned his attention to  Sarah.....As  we Near  Bura.. we  will see  about having the SM and a few SEC troopers  to go with you... The SM  will HAnd  Pick some Burian  Commandos..

  ...as   Far   promotions  go?  we'll see what happens   after  our   next confrontation.. if you can still, afford  to   promote  your   people, we'll give  get them on the que..

Re: Commander's  Quarters
"I'd wager none of the other ships had as light a tonnage as us with as heavy an armament, though the point is well taken." LT Termaine replies to the senior officers.

Sarah nods, "I assume, as per protocol, additional instructions will be forth coming regarding the troops and forces closer in to Bura itself." She takes a bite of the dessert, "I'll have the two files sent to yourself for consideration at your convenience."

  ..that will be  fine, Sarah. There are  scores   of Officers  who want to move up..at least that many who want to stay where they are... both..must rely on  what thier  service    record is, and   who speaks  for them. I am sure they will get thier  turn, May the gods protect us , should  we need to move them all up..

"Absolutely Admiral, and I take the professional development of my team very seriously. We take time every day to train, drill and prepare my people not only to do their jobs as best as is possible but also to be ready to lead at any level. During drills we regularly shift roles of junior officers or put them in section leadership roles to train and teach them to be ready for whatever promotion or combat throws at them. While I love my command Admiral, if the need ever arises I would also not turn down opportunity provided i could ensure my people were taken care of, after all even within my specific missions it is my belief that my people come first.
