In Dr. Phage's Submarine

Another screen forms on the wall. Ironically, it appears to be oriented so Dr. Phage can't see it. There is a simple message on the screen, "No. You must take father with you. He refuses to take his meds when he's with us."
In the background, you hear Vitaly chuckle but he doesn't say anything. In fact, he directs a look towards Dr. Phage that could be interpreted only as pitying.
[Secret to JUSTICAR:If Hikari or Karl take a closer look at Dr. Phage's dossier, it becomes clear why he appears to be a 'mad scientist'. By his diagnosis, he is exactly that.]
[Secret to Bellissima:Trishula catches your attention, because his body appears to be comatose. Since your telepathy is active, the reason becomes obvious. Trishula is using astral projection, and apparently waiting for you to notice him. When Bellissima does, he sends a non-intrusive thought your way. "In the event it matters, I can permit everyone to breath underwater and avoid decompression sickness. When you're desperate enough to trust me, that is what I offer. You won't need to release me, just temporarily remove the gag."]

In Dr. Phage's Submarine

Senor Garcia shook his head and explained we it didn’t matter if they were at 22 meters or 72 meters. Looking at the various controls in the CIC/bridge he looked for a depth gauge to figure ut what depth they were at, they would be below 22 meteres by now, and he looked for other things.

“Look at twenty-two meters we’re already at a depth where decompression stops are needed or one has to slowly exhale as if they were freediving to avoid the bends.”

“You really can’t buddy breath with Dreager’s and we already pushed them to the limit diving under the island."
He then explained this bit of information. “You’re not supposed to use Dreger’s below seventy meters, and we probably went below that to get into the islands underwater airlock.”

Next, he explained that JUSTICAR’s rescue ide was just not going to work, besides it looked like the kids armor had been damaged, so it might not even be capable of making it to the surface. “If either myself or JUSTICAR left to get personnel from the Gemini to assist we’d just be saving ourselves as we won’t be able to get back onboard. The submarine is moving, which will make it impossible to catch up to as we descend back to it.”

“Plus, as a titanium hulled vessel this boat probably has a crush depth between two thousand to three thousand feet. So, it can dive pretty deep.”

“Is Runa on the submarine with us? I haven’t seen her, and Chimp Man Z said he was going to help Winter Herald. I don’t see him here either.”


Looking at Bellissima, The Maharaja and then JUSTICAR. “I think it’s just the three of us here, and our three prisoners.”

“Can you swim Bellissima?”
If she could, the idea he had in mind might work.

PASS – looking for controls that will cause the submarine to make an emergency main ballast tank blow.

Basically, I want to force the submarine to the surface (the AI might not really have control of the sub). But I do not want to put my plan into action just yet. I need to get the other PC’s and our prisoners to the forward, and aft escape trunks first. Only after they are ready would I do the emergency blow and make may way to the escape trunk on the sail of the submarine, and make my exit there.

"No we did not.. the island was on the surface the continental shelf specifically here is only 66 meters down. My drones approached the Bio-ship no deeper than 10 meters."

Senor Garcia:
Next, he explained that JUSTICAR�s rescue ide was just not going to work, besides it looked like the kids armor had been damaged, so it might not even be capable of making it to the surface. <DarkBlue>�If either myself or JUSTICAR left to get personnel from the Gemini to assist we�d just be saving ourselves as we won�t be able to get back onboard. The submarine is moving, which will make it impossible to catch up to as we descend back to it.�


{Not true. The Justicar is completely undamaged.  His drones have taken some pounding... but the Justicar is not even scratched and it would need to be Severely damaged to endanger its environmental seal or underwater depth integrity.}

Senor Garcia:
�Plus, as a titanium hulled vessel this boat probably has a crush depth between two thousand to three thousand feet. So, it can dive pretty deep.�


"The Justicar can't go quite that deep.. but close."

Karl spoke up, +'Calm yourself Son... the longer we wait the closer to full system restoration the Justicar movement systems become... you are in no danger personally from this situation. The Justicar has plenty of power and O2.'+

The screen on the wall changes. Still oriented so Dr. Phage can't see it, the message now reads, "My sister has decided to join Holly Cook. We are all in danger. I've set a course to the boats that were waiting when you first came to the island. Please take care of father, we've tried, and failed, harming ourselves in the process."

Justicar is... left stunned... He rolls over to the monitor and opens his visor to speak openly, "..I..I'm so So sorry Bio-sub!  I... did not want any of this to come down this way... we did not expect to find sentient beings as vehicles.  I did not know there was a 'family' of sorts issues involved in all this.  We only came to rescue Holly Cook from what we thought were criminal abductors.  You are new to existence but I know the sting of betrayal by family is... hard to endure.  But thank you, I will personally see to it your father gets help, do not despair!"

Then thinking quickly, Hikari will grab ahold of the techno-organic ganglia and tap out a Morse Code set of coordinates with his gauntleted hand and say, "If you can manage it go to those secret coordinates... if you can get there ~ I may be able to give you refuge and repair.. do all you can to preserve your life functions!"

PM [Private to SSOGM: The Coordinates are for San Sebastian Isle]

Turning Justicar will close his suit and seal it then begin helping Bellissima and Maharajah usher the prisoners' to the main deck hatch of the sub.

Across the LESP Secure channel...
