Ronan raises a noncommittal eyebrow.  ".....let us stow our various prisoners in your ship and leave this place, while you tell me about this 'Negative Zone horde'."

ACT ONE: FIRST CONTACT - Godthab Omega Blues (Action)
Kl'rt sits down in one of the small quarters available barely more than a closet with a bunk, "You and your fellow warriors fought bravely. Despite my dishonorable means of defeating you my offer is true. Our enemy consumes the very core of the worlds they touch. Like Galactus did to Throneworld but doesn't stop there but uses the matter to grow more of their ships and soliders from the recycled materials."

He leans against the wall, "I did not even give you the honor of exchanging names. I am Kl'rt, Super-Skrull was my Emperor's pet name for the project that upgraded me."

ACT ONE: FIRST CONTACT - Godthab Omega Blues (Action)
Drax steps to Nebula's prone form and the point of his knife stops less than a careful inch from her eye. "The illusion of your fantasy is much more than you deserve," Drax growls before retracting the knife and taking a step back. This woman seems below a threat now, and useless if she has no information. There is no reason to believe her since further clues she offers, willingly or otherwise, could easily be misinformation and lead to precious time lost, and would prolong her life only longer. Drax grimaces then sheathes his knives and turns to walk away, leaving Nebula to her fate, whether it is to whither on this planet, to be buried beneath the deadly pollen, or for his compatriots to take their own revenge upon her, such have her nefarious deeds spread to affect so many lives.

Drax turns to Rocket. "She has a ship. If it's better than what we have, we could use it. If not, it still might have supplies. And if it is useless it could be destroyed. The universe could only benefit from her being stranded here."

Gamora responds to Ronan, "We came here to resupply. We still need to do that before we leave."

Then she considers Drax and Nebula. "Her ship is no doubt bio-locked and booby trapped." Gamora says matter of factly. "I'm sure it would be an upgrade over that clunker we're currently flying around though."

Gamora considers Nebula. She'd no doubt eventually betray them, just like Lyja predicted Paibok would. And clearly she and Drax weren't going to get along. Even if they crippled her ship, she was likely to come after them seeking revenge.

She takes Rocket aside. "Do you think we can we afford to keep the gold guy with us? He seems too dangerous and unstable to keep around. I don't think we have the facilities to contain him for long. If he busts out at the wrong time and mind warps us all again, we'd be in big trouble. Can we motivate him to fight for us? Nebula obviously wants him. Maybe we should trade him for her ship. Let the two of them stay here and live out their fantasy together."

[Watcher, is Glorian available as an ally?]

"Hey, its better than a beat up cargo vessel. If the hunk of junk we have been flying in takes any more pressure on the engines, I am gonna have to get out and push the next hyperspace jump we make!"

We don't need a ship for that. Worldmind reminded Rocket.

"Yeah, but I am not carrying Groot on my shoulders while I zip through space!" Not that he could not lift Groot and a lot more now...but it would be...silly looking.

"I could sure try to rig something up to drain him of cosmic energy. Like a battery or something..." He rubbed his muzzle in thought. "...and then sell cosmic energy batteries! We will all be stinking rich!"

Sigh...Worldmind let Rocket hear in his head. Rocket chose to ignore him.

Re: ACT ONE: FIRST CONTACT - Godthab Omega Blues (Action)
Nebula does indeed have a ship.  A sleek and powerful pirate cruiser with heavy shielding and armaments.  If your transport is a turtle, then Nebula's ship, the Ice Dagger, is a shark.  It's also immediately recognizable as a pirate vessel and will be treated as such wherever it goes.

Lyja responds to Gamora's question after a quick nod and smile that the other woman is okay, having recovered from the perception altering field.  "The golden man is name Glorian.  He's an Earthman named Thomas Gideon who had several run-ins with the FF and eventually ended up becoming the "Herald" of sorts for a being called The Shaper of Worlds.  The Shaper is an enlightened cosmic construct and doesn't have any imagination, so he was hoping to employ Glorian, and others like him, to change reality in suitable ways."  She shrugged.  "My guess is that he didn't work out and the Shaper abandoned him or he ran away."

At the suggestion of containing him or having him fight with them, she shrugs.  "I've never met him, so this is all just from the info that I learned while preparing to infiltrate the FF."  She shrugs.  "We could ask him, maybe?  Although my information suggests that he wasn't the most mentally stable individual.  That's one of the reasons that The Shaper chose him in the first place."

The Worldmind speaks up in Rocket's ear.  "Of course, as a duly recognized galactic law enforcement officer, you would be well within our mandate to incarcerate Glorian if you felt it necessary.  Glorian has broken an extensive list of interstellar laws and is classified as an Omega-Level Criminal in the Corps database.  Finding some siphon or conduit for his power could certainly assist in establishing a stronger Corps and defeating this invasion force."

--------------------------

On board the ship, Cerise and Spirit look up at Kl'rt's comment.  Cerise nods.  "You have defeated me in combat and proven your mettle as a warrior.  I will follow you into combat if you so choose.  I see now that my service to Nebula was likely compelled by Glorian.  However, I am long overdue in reporting to my Praetor, so I request permission in returning to the Shi'ar to do so."  As for Spirit's part, she looks even more eager.  "Even under the golden-skinned man's compulsion, I heard the stories of this horde.  They are an instrument of death and destruction that may be able to grant me the Gift that I seek.  I will aid you!"

Kl'rt blinked, "I had forgotten that you were a warrioress that chased after her own death. But dying to this foe would feed it. But I would welcome your aid nonetheless." He chuckles, "If you are no longer hostile towards me or my strange team then of course you are free to leave. Perhaps you can shake your old birds from their perches into taking action to help stop the wholesale slaughter of worlds."

He leans backs, "I imagine what little teamwork you showed was this Glorian's powers trying to fulfill his desires. But you had the potential, I've been thinking hard since this fleet showed up. Teamwork is how almost every foe beats me, I was genetically altered to be a team of one. But a real team can pull off alot more than one." He smirks again, "Mention to your queen that a Skrull has finally learned the lesson her Xavier found so easy to teach. That should ruffle her feathers."

"We could really use a better ship." Gamora agrees with Rocket. "Nebula's is probably the best one on this planet. Do you intend to detain Glorian or not? If so, I'll have to think of some other way to deal with Nebula."

She turns to Ronan, "Do you have anything we could use as leverage on her? Maybe a pardon or something? I'm sure she's wanted by the Kree for something."

Re: ACT ONE: FIRST CONTACT - Godthab Omega Blues (Action)
Ronan regards Thanos' supposed relative with a look of disdainful disinterest.  "Her piracy is not unknown to the Kree Empire.  If room for prisoners is scarce, however, I don't see why we don't just execute her for those crimes and commandeer her vehicle.  As for the human, by the time his Shaping powers return, you will want to have him in the hands of the full Xandarian Nova Corps.  He will indeed be quite dangerous to you."

"As for me," Ronan drums his fingers on Tana Nile's unconscious back again, "I would prefer we take this pirate's ship, change its notorious appearance, and make straight for Hala once the Corps has taken the human.  There, we will secure you the mighty Kree military aid you need against whatever horde you fear, our superior informational network will easily locate the Mad Titan you seek, and this worthless Rigellian will stand trial and die for her lies against me."

Ronan begins marching toward Nebula's ship.

"I am Groot." Groot says in a dreamy like way. He is not looking at anyone, nor apparently listening. Then again, aside from Rocket-who could tell?

As Groot moves, plants and flowers seem to be growing from his footsteps. He moves over to Drax, pats him on the shoulder-gestures to space and says "I AM Groot." He smiles widely, nods, and pats him again. Then he keeps walking for the ship.

Rocket stares at his friend, and then floats over to the golden man and grabs him by the hair. "What the frack did your freaky pollen do to my friend!?" He snarls.

Re: ACT ONE: FIRST CONTACT - Godthab Omega Blues (Action)
Drax shakes his head at the plant creature as it passes by him then begins his next objective: examining the space-witch's ship. Assuming he would not have or need any aid, he makes his way to the ship and gives it an examination as close and focused as his abilities will allow. There are better pilots or mechanics even among this group, but if there are traps in the thing, as the green-skinned warrior-woman suggested, then he can trip them and take whatever harm they dole out to himself. "Hm," he mutters as he makes his way around the ship, then into it, however he can access it.

Attempt to create Examining Nebula's Ship Asset:
Solo    d10
Single-Minded    d8

Drax takes the time to examine Nebula's ship with his cosmically enhanced senses.  After a few moments, he quickly realizes that Nebula has placed several nasty safeguards and traps in place, but he manages to avoid tripping any of them for the moment.


Dice Pool:

2d6, 3d8, d12

Today: Watcher rolled 7,14,3 using 2d6,3d8,d12 ((6,1,8,4,2,3)).

Total:  14.  d12 Effect Die.

Examining Nebula's Ship d8 asset created.  If you get it past d12, then the group will have removed any traps or safeguards.

Glorian scowls.  "It's not my pollen, rodent.  I imagine that the Cotati are to blame for the pollen infecting your friend.  They can be a nuisance, but they've mostly kept to themselves since I've been here."  He smirks.  "I imagine that your Kree friends won't be too happy to know that they've been infected as well."

In reply to Glorian (msg # 135):

"I am Groot." Groot of course says, waving his finger at Glorian like he is a naughty school boy. "I am Groot, I am Groot...I. Am. Groot!" He even taps the golden man on the nose with his finger, smiling at him.

Rocket looks about ready to bite Glorian's head off...maybe litterally-but listens to Groot's words.

"Ok...whatever this weird Pollen crap is, its made Groot drunk. Or crazy. Or...he could be telling the truth-which is likely, because Groot never lies." He looks around at the others. "Well, he's doesn't! He is Groot after all!"

"I am Groot." Groot agrees. Of course, that may be what he actually means for once.

"He says the Cotati want him to help them spread more life through the universe. Re-seed the place as it where. So they asked him to become their...'Avatar of life.' Which sounds like he just signed up for a freaking PLANT DATING SERVICE!" He yelled at his friend.

Groot just laughs at him, and says..."I...I am...I am Groot!" And falls over due to mirth.

Re: ACT ONE: FIRST CONTACT - Godthab Omega Blues (Action)
"Hm." Ronan seems deep in thought since hearing the word 'Cotati'.  "This is not good.  We must get everyone to Kree space immediately for cleansing.  Doubtless your talking tree here is a distant relative of one of the worst blights to ever be spawned in this Universe.  But don't worry: the worthless Cotati were first defeated by my people in ancient times, and the scientists of Hala would be very interested to meet an offshoot in the throes of its mating season."

Ronan continues toward Nebula's ship, where Drax is already poring over the security measures.  "You are all truly heralds of my salvation indeed.  Here I have been debating how best to make my return to Kree society, and now I have been delivered the Rigellian architect of my misery, and a prize of Cotati-spawn to gift unto Hala in addition!  Your help will not go unrewarded of course; when I am reinstated to the office of Supreme Accuser, I will ensure that your suicidal mission to find Thanos is pointed in the right direction and your 'horde' is dealt with by a small contingent of the indomitable Kree Military.  Who among you is most qualified to fly this ship?  Breathing this hideous pollen is giving me a headache."

In reply to Ronan The Accuser (msg # 137):

"Hold up there blue. Nobody is dissecting Groot-read me? If Groot says the spores are ok, then they are ok-end of story." He shook his head. "Even if it is weird and uncomfortable talking about Groot's love life."

"Second, the Kree Military is not gonna be able to handle the ships from the negative zone all by themselves. Unless you want the empire not to have a fleet anymore. So you are gonna need Nova core help, and any help we can wrangle-which may mean lots of people you normally don't like-such as the skrull. Got me?"

Well said! Worldmind sliently chimed in.

Nobody asked you...Rocket grumbled in his mind.

Gamora nudges Lyja with an elbow. "Groot's gonna get him some..." she says in a sing-songy voice, smiling. She gives Groot a robust slap on where she thinks his rump would be as she walks over to Nebula.

She points to where Drax is forcing doors and ripping various limpets and other devices off Nebula's ship. "Look's like Drax is going to ransack all your defenses and steal your ship. What can you offer me not to leave you to rot on this rock? Looks like Klr't already recruited your 'Graces'. Nice name, by the way."

Kl'rt finally gets control of himself enough to reroute most of his plumbing so he's not leaking externally with a small amount of help from Cerise he makes his way back outside, "Gamora how goes getting us off this rock before accusationer there draws half the quadrant's attention here? Because I promised Cerise here that she could leave to contact the Shi'ar."

He chuckled, "They might not help now. But I think a message I have for them might get their queens feathers ruffled."

Nebula sneers at Gamora.  "An idiot like Drax will never find even half of the surprises that I've hidden aboard.  I know when to cut my losses.  You take the ship and you drop me off at a neutral, inhabited space-capable planet where I don't have a death mark and we'll call it even."  She smiles wickedly.  "You can even keep those faithless witches that I recruited, at least until they betray you too.  I've bounced back from worse than this..."

Nebula smiles wickedly.  "Aren't you the clever one?  Deal."  She grabs her cybernetic arm at the wrist and pulls it back.  From a hidden compartment, a small data chip appears.  "This will disable the traps.  Feel free to give it a thorough examination though if you don't trust me."  Her smile grows even wider.

He chuckles and turns towards Cerise, "A little work with putting a ocean in and this would be a rather sentimental resort planet for my warband don't you think?"

Drax continues to rip through Gamora’s ship, taking it apart as he sees fit, more concerned with getting rid of the booby-traps and her lingering identity smeared across the spacecraft rather than leaving it so intact as a formidable space-faring vehicle. The more he works on it, the more his anger builds, as this bucket could be the only obstacle between this planet and finally finding -- and obliterating -- the murderer Thanos. Wherever he has to go, whatever allies he has join -- no matter what race they are and no matter their allegiances -- he will go there and ally with them, as long as it gets him closer to his goal.
