Starfleet Priority Channel One: All ships, be advised! Torros II has fallen to an Orion Assault Force! All Cardassian Defence Forces are being recalled from their training manoeuvres back to Cardassian Space. All Federation Vessels in Beta Ursae, avoid the Torros System at all costs! Starfleet Command is in emergency meeting to decide next course of action. Will advise as information becomes available.
OOC: feel free to man just remember to take into account he i on a military base full of trained and armed troops
After the meeting felix leaves the room heading for the bridge
Vadem: do you think they will find the artifact
Felix: I sure hope so cause if they dont we are in trouble
Agent: sir prowler 1-a reports no activity now in the wreckage but confirms the area was visited recently.
Felix: alright everyone set course for the stations location lets see what we can put together from it.
Jacob is in an enginerring bay at damascus working on upgrading his suit and making combat armor for the project candidates.
Jacob: Orion please bring up schematic alpha two dash five
Orion: bringing up now sir
Jacob: lets add the high powered phaser to the arm weapons system as well as the micro torpedo launcher and the hand pulse chambers. Also add a heavy beam hooked up directly to the chest piece. We can leave out warp capabale speeds in it since we have the transport systems up and running. Also i want this one fire red with black and orange trims.
Orion: very well sir should i also install computer overide system we made last week and the upgraded comm unit
Jacob: of course also overpower the shield system i dont want to skip anything on this one.
Orion: very well sir
*OOC: Yeah I should play up the Face Dancer threat... just a bit *
*Rumbles throughout the base rock the facility as the soldiers and guards and commanders themselves start attacking the facility and killing everyone security has been destroyed and the surveillance is down permanently...
Across the galaxy Jacob's hiding spots start exploding including his old suits and cores... *
Guard: What the hell... *His partner rips his throat out as men storm the barracks and the labs..*
*Torros Sector, R.S.S. Matthew Neilson on patrol as part of the Republic-Federation Mutual Defence Pact - the Republic will help retrain Starfleet and help provide policing for Federation Space.
Captain Forrester's Ready Room. Matt is looking out the window, before walking over to his console and sitting in his chair. He activates the holo-display, bringing up a holographic screen with the Republic Emblem in the middle and several small icons along the right side.*
Matt: Computer, connect to R.S.S. Republic, Captain Samantha Allington, Personal Channel.
Computer: Stand by.
*Matt presses the Comm icon that just appeared and waits.
R.S.S. Republic, Captain Allington's Ready Room. Sam is leaning against the window frame, looking out at Icara VII below. Her console beeps and the holo-display activates. She looks in surprise before walking over and tapping the 'Accept transmission' icon as she sits down. Matt appears on the screen.*
Matt: Hey, Sam. Just calling to see how things were in your neck of the woods.
Sam: Same. We're still in orbit of Icara VII while the Archaeologists pack up shop. Command wants them shipped out by the end of the week while they secure the planet. They don't want a repeat of what happened with Adenheim.
How are things with you?
Matt: As good as can be expected. Patrolling Federation Space isn't the most exciting assignment ever. Still, with the attack on Torros a few days ago, we really are needed in this Sector Block.
Look, I finish this Patrol in 3 days. After that, I'm off assignment. You?
Sam: Same. As soon as the Commonwealth arrives tomorrow, we can leave.
Deep Space 9?
Matt: I was thinking 'Bajor'.
Sam: Bajor? Trying to get romantic with me, Captain?
Matt: Guilty as charged. See you there?
Sam: 3 days?
Matt: 3 day--
*The red alert klaxon sounds on Matt's end.*
Sam: Matt? What's happening?!
Matt: I've gotta go!
*The transmission cuts off.*
R.S.S. Matthew Neilson. Matt walks onto the Neilson's Bridge.*
John: Captain, there's a large formation of ships moving in!
*The entire Bridge Crew look in shock as a fleet of dozens of Syndicate ships are approaching.*
Ops: They're not responding.
Matt: Charge Weapons. Raise Shields.
John: A mix of Duranus and D'ian Cartel ships. Most of the Duranus Cartel Vessels are Cargo Freighters, with some frigates escorting them.
Matt: Which makes D'ian the escort group.
*Matt sits in the Command Chair and looks to Will next to him.*
Duranus are over a century behind in Weapons tech, but D'ian aren't. They're up-to-date and we're outnumbered.
Science, how close are the Badlands?
John: Not close enough, and the Orions are between us and it.
Ops: We're being hailed.
Matt: Audio only.
Telana *Over Comm*: This is Telana Tr'ian of the Orion Syndicate to Republic Vessel, surrender or be destroyed.
Matt: This is Captain Matthew Forrester of the Republic of United Star Systems.
Telana *Over Comm*: You have 10 minutes, Captain.
Matt: If we surrender?
Telana *Over Comm*: I think you can guess.
*Telana closes the channel. Matt looks to Will.*
Matt: If we surrender, they'll make slaves out of us, if we're lucky.
Will: And if we fight, they'll probably kill us.
Matt: They'll try to capture us first. I think we can both agree that the Neilson cannot be taken, at any cost.
*Matt rubs his face, grimly, before hitting the intercom.*
Matt: All non-essential personnel to the escape pods.
*He turns to Will.*
Speak to the Department Heads. Surrender or Fight. I want a consensus in 5 mnutes.
Jacob: ok whatever then. Call cap and the rest of the team. See if any one can help.
Orion: message sent sir.
*As if on-cue, Armada blasts into the Base, taking down Facedancers with the new enhanced phaser weaponry and the newly equipped Sonic disruptors. The disruptors drive several Facedancers back as the rest of Vanguard runs in, Hawk taking down several with his arrows and Destroyer just smashing a dozen into the walls, floor, ceiling, pretty much everything! Sanders activates his shield and deflects a phaser blast away from Jacob before knocking several Facedancers back with the shield and a few sharp kicks and jabs.*
OOC: Now going to bed. Be back at 15:00 UTC (16 hours.)
