Paragon shook herself free from her trance. Turning back to the others she smirked, "Yup, we are on your side."

CMZ turns to Paragon.  I didn't know you were capable of that.  Wow.  I am humbled.
He turns to the Colonel.  What do you need us to do?

Colonel Flagg laughs, "I've got a squad of mercs, two of 'em were marine snipers. I tasked them with hitting the robot villagers. I've got a few others with heavy weapons. I had one of 'em hit the guy in the tower with an are pee gee."
"My guys are going to form a perimeter, but stay out of sight. If they send anyone to investigate, you can tell them truthfully you had nothing to do with it. Tomorrow morning we'll move on, I'm planning to make Delmarion Cove in a couple days."
he says.

On the trek to Delmarion Cover (which takes several days), Colonel Flagg and his men destroy three more towers. When there aren't suborned civilians, the robot in the tower is eliminated by one of the fifty caliber sniper weapons. At no time does any other resistance appear.

Where needed, CMZ helped the operator team bring down the towers, and take out the robots inside.  Something about having a walking piece of indestuctible cover always seems to sit well with soldiers.  The howler monkeys would go ahead, coming back to let them know if there was any problem en route; unable to speak, they seem quite capable of pantomiming what they see.

Unable to find a decent restaurant anywhere in the country of Chinilaya (there really aren't any), Drifter ponders their next move as they reach the coastline just north of Delmarion Cove. Colonel Flagg and his men set up a hidden camp and wait to be contacted by Lt. Smohk.

When Paragaon waves, indicating she thought Lt. Smohk was nearby, Drifter nods. Composing himself, Drifter tries to set up another communications portal to talk to the other LESP members.
As he establishes the portal, he hears Spymaster say, "Alright, with the intel we have I'm seeing the building blocks of plan. Step one, we get to the dock. With what I gather from Stephany, they aren't armed, so we try peace there, and try for nonlethal if it's civilians. We're trying to free these people, not stack them like cord wood. Our next move is twofold, we take the truck, and begin traveling to the house on the hill, while Psi-bird uses her skills to try and find the advance team. I dislike having a man down, but our options are hope Drifter is paying attention and gives us a rendezvous, or send Herald out on a hunt, which means we're still down a man, but that man is also isolated. Our third target is the cannon, if we can control that Smohk and Flagg can bring in a bit of heavier artillery, plus we can insure our own communications out. Our last target is the security area, we've got 3 dozen guards, helicopters, and an underground facility, that's going to be quite the spectacle, but I think I have some ideas to make it easier, but we'll see what the best plan is when we approach. They'll likely reinforce if they get wind we're in Chinilaya. Our best plan for now is not to look outwardly hostile, see if we can win the dockworker's trust without a blood bath."
"And that means maybe putting down the guns you can't conceal, in easily reachable spots. Herald, if you can be eyes and ears as we approach, keep an eye for weapons, and listen for any phrases that suggest alarm."

Drifter responds to Spymaster, saying,
"I have a friend that should be able to convince the locals to join us, if they've heard the local folk tales, anyway. Jane, can you say hello to our other friends?"

"I could pop through and talk to them, or go see those duck walkers for you. Why are they walking ducks, can't the ducks walk by themselves?"

A voice that no one recognizes says, "...thats Dock Workers."
and then says, "I sketched from memory what the submarine looked like with as much detail as possible.. can you identify the class of sub and it potential capabilities?  Now that I think of it I should have flown through it to get some idea on is crew compliment and number of torpedo and other armaments its armed with."
Then Winter Herald says, "Your information was acquired without any visible alerts being sent out, and it was a staggering amount in a short time. Understanding the limits of entropy is a difficult task even for my mechanical mind. Paragon might be the only one of us who truly understands it."
"I hope this portal is close to our relative time, Drifter. We are close to your position in this world. I am assuming this line is secure. We need to know where to meet you, and we need to exchange information or at least synchronize."
"I am programmed to operate with units of any size. This includes solo operations. We need to cut their comms and their surveillance if possible. Prevent them from acting on meaningful data, and confuse reinforcements to increase operational friction. But that can wait until we strike. I can listen to the shores from here, with ears and radio, but the ocean delivers more noise than you know. Seagulls in particular are quite galling."
After a pause, Winter Herald corrects a possibly perceived error by stating, "that is not a joke."
Then Captain Justice says, "I see. It will be difficult for me to disembark without drawing attention to myself. Due to being so outside the norm. What would you suggest for my course of action?"

Before Drifter can respond, Jane flits up to the rift Drifter created and grabs the edges thereof. Pulling her wings in tight, she wiggles through the hole.

CMZ stands observant to the proceedings.  He is not totally comfortable with this concept of communication or crossing over through time.  Really, what he wishes is that he gets an opportunity to smash FORCE's android face in.

How Much Trouble They Got In To

The new voice is heard from the portal, saying, "...THAT will satisfy my Editor for months of material!  Y'know there is a standing debate and challenge for ANY documentable pictures of 'Real' Faeries?  The citizen's of Ireland swear to their existence but the 'talking head' of the Scientific Community rebuff all reports cause there is no 'proof'.  Those who won't believe even with these pictures will refuse to believe but those who do believe.. will be joyous for a time. Now ~ I believe!!"
"Hello Jane, my name is Stephany, sometimes called Psi-Bird.  I hope you don't mind my taking your picture... people have been debating the existence of the small folk  for as long as tales and legends have been told by mankind... a lot of people believe in your existence, but are frustrated when nay-sayers claim you do not exist as there is no proof you do. But now... I know different.  Do you mind if I show your pictures to people?  If you would prefer not... I'll respect that and destroy them... but knowing you exist would make a lot of people happy!"
Then Captain Justice says, "I would advise everyone,  It would be in everyones best interest to be very polite and very, very careful with your words."
Spymaster comments, "I wouldn't worry too much about looking out of the norm Captain, it's why we have a cover story for the locals of being Stephany's team and story respectively. Force's men likely know you if the last android we handled sent back any video."
"I doubt your publishers will believe one fairy as evidence, they'd want proof she isn't just a meta. Drifter, we're getting ready to dock the Shadowhawk, and begin our movement from the coast. What's the situation inland? Where should we meet up with Z, Paragon, and Flagg?"
Winter Herald follows those comments stating, "I fail to understand how my consensus initially drew the conclusion that 'faerie' was the ally as opposed to a child, and yet here we are, with the discounted opinion being the reality as opposed to the more sensible one of 'a local child guide'. This must be what it is like to be accustomed to madness."
"If this is open, and it costs life force, then the home team is already aware of our presence. This simplifies things. All we need is to know each other's plans. I feel communication is the most lethal weapon the enemy has, and I would like to cut it. If one team is in a good position to do that, I encourage it. Additional question: can we expect partisan support?"

Colonel Flagg speaks, "I've got a squad of mercs, as soon as we coordinate with Smohk, we were planning to take out that weird-looking antenna array to disable their communications. But that needs to change."
"Watching the soldiers around the thing has me convinced they're not comms specialists. They act like artillery crew. I was hoping Lt. Smohk could give us some insight."
he says.

The new voice, who apparently calls themselves Psi-Bird, says, "Yeah, you don't know my Editor.  Jimmy Lou.. he has a very flexible relationship with Journalism truth and even less with real archeological fact and history.  I'm not a 'investigative reporter'... more of a freelance columnist.  My 'paper' ~ "Chasing Histories Mysteries", is in the entertainment section of Science America on archeology investigating historical supernatural and mystical legends & myths we also do webisodes of the videos and on-scene investigations I and other investigator's do.  We're not really taken seriously, but I ~ at least, try to find historical fact more than story in everything I do!  Its NOT the work I want to be doing... I'm far more interested in the Archeology and uncovering actual professionally research history.  My 'Boss' is more interested in  sensationalism and shock... its... embarrassing.  I'd love to do nothing but pure professional archeological field work on official professional research digs... but being a ward of the state does not really given access to the funds to do a full on Undergrad and Graduate Doctorate in Archaeological studies on my finances... THIS gig is as close as I could get to my heart's goals of being an Actual professional Archaeologist!"
"But.. that said 'Freaky ~ Weapon of Mass Mental Destruction Powers' that I am, likely cooked up by my 'Benefactor' that bastard Franklin Emerson of Emerson Electronics by fucking up my mother... I have helped a lot of people around the world with my mind powers investigating ... and finding ~ strangely more often than not, Actual Supernatural Terrors that need to be opposed to protect the innocent.  So.. meh... I could be doing much worse."
"And I FLATLY refuse to use my freaky, mind-shattering mind power to take advantage of them and cheat by abusing them.  That's EMERSON'S Gig.. I'm better than that!"
"Hey.. Drifter.. its me the new gal currently working with the SENTINALS ~ Psi-Bird.  I did a complete Astral Projection sweep of the entire Delmarion Cove ... that big array is not a communications tower, Machine Ghosting it in cyberspace I learned its a Electrostatic Energy Cannon of some sort.. its a weapons array.  Could not find out its range or effect... but I think it might have possibly other functions the crew of 6 inside are indeed gunners.  Spymaster says he thinks its to counter someone named Justicar."
"HEY, if ...Lady Jane can come through this communication portal... I can teleport objects. I could teleport you one of my PDAs through this portal with all the intel I scouted in pictures I sketched out and notes on it so you will all know what we know?"

Then Señor Garcia says, “we should focus on taking out the electrostatic cannon first, then the submarine and then helicopters.”
“I could probably do a one-man op to take out the sub or focus on the electrostatic cannon instead. I think the sub should be first because it could dive from its dock and escape. The cannon is not a weapon that is easily movable.”

Lt. Smohk has, apparently, arrived as he's heard to say "we have to do the cannon first. It's a very impressive weapon, able to target and destroy anything out to the horizon. We can't approach till it's down. I was hoping Colonel Flagg could handle it."

Colonel Flagg speaks, "If we engage the squad around the cannon before the comms are down, we'll have more company than we can handle. With the help of Zee, Paragon, and Drifter we might be able to bring down the cannon before they're reinforced, but that wouldn't stop them rebuilding it in short order."
"It seems to me that cannon is the center of gravity, once it's eliminated Lt. Smohk could bring that boat in. Once that's done, either the submarine or the communications system would become the center of gravity. Both of these would have to be controlled from some sort of larger installation. I'm not sure who, but someone would need to get into that base and disable their comms so we wouldn't get overrun."
"Once the electro-static cannon and communications are down, Panamanian forces are poised to launch an offensive with the help of partisans so Chinilaya can rejoin Panama thus strengthening our ally."

The colonel pauses, dramatically, then says, "those are the orders I was given, and how I'll proceed."

True to his word, Drifter opens a portal and the other LESP members start coming through, the first one through, however, may not be known to those present.
