Todd, Nereid, Angelfish, Ty'daal:
Lt. Moleta addresses Todd. "I'm investigating the murder of a young woman. I'd like you to answer a few questions about your activities last night."

I wonder... what's higher than the stratosphere?

"Uh, yeah, sure, right," Todd stammers. "Did you say 'murder'?"

Todd, Nereid, Angelfish, Ty'daal:
"Yes I did." Moleta confirms. "But this probably isn't the place to talk about it. I'd like for you to come back to the station; we can sit down and you can answer a few questions."

Ian, Time Keeper:
Martin Shimogawa's eyes narrow, as Coast Guard crewmen move to place him and Ms. Rekha in handcuffs. "This is outrageous! We are in no way to blame for any of this! Look around; you'll find no evidence of any wrongdoing. We were assured that our new procedures are safe; if anything is escaping into the seawater, it's because of sabotage!" He and Sandrine Rekha exchange glances, and both look at Tichmann, still ranting about possession and struggling with the Coast Guard boarder holding him.

Ms. Rekha makes sure that Karen Kwan's microphone is facing her, then says. "It's obvious; these eco-terrorists somehow got to our Security Director! Look what they've done to him!"

Ty'daal walks over to where the corporate villains have been arrested. "I am sure the private army you have created along with monstrous cyborg who tried to murder multiple people is all completely innocent. You are defeated, both by force, by words, and by the power of what is right and just."

The aquatic warrior crosses his arms looking sternly at the criminals.

Ty'daal:
The Coast Guard personnel step back a bit from your imposing presence, and Karen Kwan thrusts her microphone toward your face. Her cameraman is splitting his time between Mr. Shimogawa and Ms. Rekha getting handcuffed and Mr. Tichmann being wrestled to the ground. "These people are accusing you and your allies of sabotaging this facility. How do you respond to these allegations?"

"Their facility here was spilling toxic contaminants into the ocean long before I ever visited this place. It was the foul smell in the water that lead me here. Imagine if there was raw sewage flowing past your home. Would you not be able to follow it to its source? That was much like it was for me," Ty'daal answered.

"Uh. Yeah. OK." Todd says to Moleta. "Love to. I, mean, not exactly love, but...

...

...Ii'll just shut up now."

"Okay, we can sort this all out in the courts. I assure you Mr. Shimogawa and Ms. Rekha that a large amount of evidence has come forward against you. Since you both refuse to help us clear up which of you is behind all this, we will have to assume that you both are. You can tell your stories to the judge."
Ian turns to his aid and within easy earshot of Shimogawa and Rekha he says,
"Arrest these two, and have the Security Director examined by medical. He was the inside man on this, and its obvious they have done something to him."
Turning back to the two top dogs, Ian points his finger at them, shaking his head.
"Take a good look around, you're not going to see the outdoors again for a long time."

OOC: Ian is basically trying to make them turn on each other. I don't want to relinquish control of the Captain to possess one of them because then the Captain will start acting weird.

Ian:
Director Shimogawa has obviously had enough of all this. His anger is about to boil over, but just as he opens his mouth, Sandrine Rekha seems to suddenly regain her own composure and cuts him off. "Sir, as your legal counsel, I recommend saying nothing until--" she shoots a glance at Capt. Tilley "--and unless we're formally charged."

The three of them are led down to your boats in handcuffs. Rekha and Shimogawa watch Tichmann struggle and rant, and you spot them exchanging significant glances. They seem to have decided where they intend to lay the blame...

As the prisoners are secured, the senior member of the boarding party steps up and salutes. "Sir, this facility is secured, except for the parahumans..." He looks uncertainly toward Angelfish, Todd, and Nereid, standing with Lt. Moleta, then back to Ty'daal and Time Keeper standing with you and the DTN broadcast team. "How should we proceed?"

Karen Kwan's microphone is suddenly right in front of you.

"The para humans are working with us on this one. The brought them in because we knew Amphora had its own para human thugs. They are free to go. Let's wrap this up. Seize all records and electronics."

Ian:
The Coast Guard Lieutenant salutes. "Aye, aye, sir!" He begins relaying orders to his subordinates to have the platform's engineering team, supervised by the boarding party, shut down all systems and identify all computerized records.

Eventually, when you relinquish control of Captain Tilley, he's going to have a large list of unanswered questions. He's bright, or he wouldn't be where he is today, and you've been on the news before... He'll figure it out, given a little time for reflection.

Everyone:
[OOC: It'll take at least an hour for the Coast Guard to get everyone rounded up and either in custody or off the platform. Todd has a date at the police station downtown... :) What does everyone else want to do?]

Ian:
[OOC: With a 9 Intellect? Sure! You'd have to track it through Amphora's corporate network and bring it back, or else 'undelete' the files using your high-tech forensic skillz. All you'd need would be a computer terminal and a few minutes to test Intellect against a Difficulty of 4 (the platform IT guy's Intellect). Since you saw the evidence before, and it is evidence we're talking about, your Criminology expertise would apply.]

Todd, Nereid:
[OOC: Feel free to converse while Detective Jones and Lt. Moleta take MAKO into custody. There'll be a little jurisdiction-measuring, so you'll have time before the boat leaves. :)]

Todd shuffles over to Nereid.

"What's this about a murder?" he mumbles.

OOC: 18:27, Sun 02 Mar 2014: Amm-Fibian rolled 4,3 using D6,d6 ((4,3)).
1+9 int + 1 criminology = 11
Undelete evidence


Once he gets a moment alone with the PC's, Ian recovers the missing evidence onto the Amphora computers.

{Um, Nereid, is Todd going to need a lawyer?}

Amm-Fibian seems to have convinced the authorities that the rest of them were O.K., but the police obviously had their eye on Todd for a different crime.

In reply to Angelfish (msg # 180):

[ I don't think so... Lt Moleta has seen the "killer" it's a shadowy physics projection thing,,,I think he is just a little detail driven and wants to know what Todd knows about the casino...So Todd don't worry, tell the truth. Moleta can smell a lie and when he does he like a shark with blood in the water. Well, unless you really think you need to lie...but I swear it will cause trouble.

By the way, should I like mind scan the baddies before they leave...I know anything I find can't be used as evidence but maybe it can lead to some good physical evidence. ]

Nereid:
[OOC: Test your Telepathy vs their Willpowers (4 each)to see what you can pick up.]

Angelfish, Ty'daal, Todd:
Lt. Moleta finally agrees that Detective Jones and the MIB have jurisdiction over MAKO. However, Detective Jones has to admit that the behemoth won't fit on his speedboat. MAKO will be in ACPD custody until he reaches shore, then the MIB will take him. Lt. Moleta seems happy enough that Todd is accompanying the prisoner transport. "You'll be handy to have around if the big guy wakes up in transit." He says.

Ian:
As Capt. Tilley, you can "examine" the platform computers before they're taken as evidence. It only takes you a few seconds to restore the deleted files, and leave an undisturbed record of their transfer to Amphora's Honolulu mainframe as well.

[This pretty much wraps up everything on the platform. Where do you each want to have your next scenes? Todd's is already accounted for, of course. :)]

Ian stays with the Coast Guard as Tilley until the evidence and prisoners are safely transferred to the other authorities. Then he walks to a safe place for Tilley to be "awakened" and transfers back to his natural body.

{Todd, are you gonna to be O.K?  Do you want some of us to meet you at the station?  I mean, as regular people, for morale support... or bail... or whatever...}


(OOC: If Todd wants Angelfish to accompany him, she will.  Or she'll meet him at the police station as Angela if that's better.  Otherwise, she'll head for home to reassure Ishida that she's not going to be arrested/imprisoned/impounded)

{If I should be needed again, Amm-Fibian knows how to contact me,} the alien warrior states plainly through the mind link to the others. Walking over to the edge of the platform he dives off, splashing into the water and swimming way from the platform.

Re: E3S12 - Amphora Platform #3 - A, Ty, TK, I, T
Nereid:
Martin Shimogawa is already planning how to throw his Security Director, Glenn Tichmann, under the bus. :There's no proof I ever approved of hiring MAKO; that's all on Tichmann. I don't know what these people have done to him, but as of now he's perfect to take the fall.: He's also wondering how the Coast Guard knew as much as they did, as quickly as they did...

Sandrine Rekha, on the other hand, is seriously considering whether or not to recommend to the Board of Directors that Mr. Shimogawa be transferred to somewhere much less prominent. :This will be a PR nightmare, regardless of my spin control. We can win the court case, but we're guaranteed to lose in the court of public opinion.: She silently fumes.

[Continued in the following threads:
E4S1 - Metro Precinct HQ - Todd, Nereid
E4S2 - West of Kailua Kona - Angelfish, Ty'daal
E4S3 - Multinational Investigation Bureau HQ - Ian
E4S4 - Pacific Time Clock and Watch Shop - Time Keeper

The plot thickens!]
