Talmus: yes.

His mind wonders back to what was to him not long ago.

Talmus: do we have any idea what happened to it.
Phil Coulson: And back up isn't coming. It'll be just the four of us. We'll be outmanned and outgunned. But Fury always said... a man can accomplish anything when he realizes he's a part of something bigger. A team of people who share that conviction can change the world. So, what do you say?

Danny: I dunno... Should be at the ruins of Angel Halo... But its been what nearly 4 months? With all of the illegal scavenging going on I do think someone likely found it.

Talmus: I know. But I should be able to detect the energy source of it and find maybe even who took it.

Talmus floats in the wreckage. Memories flood his mind. So much is still familiar. He feels for the missing artifact.

Talmus knows jetran will round up what is left of there team. He must find and decide what there next move is.

*Deltos IX, Orbit. The Republic Battle Group is in orbit (escorted by several Deltos Patrol Frigates (old Peel-Class Republic Police Frigates, retrofitted with older, easier to maintain and acquire equipment)) as the Republic's Senior Officers and Hawk are in the Situation Room.*

Hawk: We do this by the numbers; Captain Allington will lead the team while I monitor the mission from up here. All members of the Raid Team are to be armed with Type 2/S Phasers - set on stun. PSGs are to be worn at all times - do not remove them for any reason. Do not take any unnecessary chances down there; we don't know what to expect.

Okay Captain, you can take over.

Sam: Thanks.

Dana, what's our time-frame?

Dana: Not great. There's an Orion Freighter in orbit. It's linked to the Daros Cartel - part of the Syndicate.

Hawk: The Daros are in a state of Cold War with the Duranus. They'll probably leave the Tr'ians to rot.

David: Given the fact that the Syndicate are in a state of Mob War with the Kar'moon Alliance, could they afford to do so?

Hawk: The feud between the two Cartels goes back 70 years - long before Tara took charge. The Cartels have only ever helped each other when they stood to gain something far more significant than the risk. We're not talking latinum here... we're talking ships, slaves, officers, Class A contraband, Thalaron Weaponry, Red Matter - things you can't even begin to put a price on!

Dana: Maybe, but there's another Orion Ship on the other side of the planet, linked to the D'san Cartel.

David: Uh-oh.

T'mar: Not good.

Hawk: Lieutenant, you have a talent for understatement! The D'san's are at war with the Duranus Cartel ever since Tara killed Myanne D'san - the daughter of the D'san Cartel's leader - to become leader of the Duranus Cartel! It ended a century-long alliance, sparked a cold front between the Duranus and the D'ian and D'san Cartels, recently turning into open Mob War between the D'san's and the Duranus'! They're more likely to want them dead than the Kar'moon Alliance!

Sam: Well, now we are on the clock!

T'mar, you'll accompany me on the Raid Team. Assemble it for departure in 1 hour.

T'mar: Understood.

*T'mar leaves*

Sam: Dana, keep an eye on the D'san ship.

David, if they beam down anywhere near us, you have my permission to engage.

David: What about the Deltosians?

Sam: According to the treaty, we have a right to defend ourselves, and ships in orbit aren't allowed to beam down anywhere but the Spaceports, except military vessels. The Orions beaming down on top of us qualifies as an attack on the ship itself.

David: Understood.

Sam: Maintain Yellow Alert.

Dismissed.

*The Senior staff walk out, leaving Sam and Hawk alone.*

Hawk: You ready?

Sam: Mike...

Hawk: It was a simple question!

Sam: Yes, I'm ready. And yes, I can keep my cool.

Hawk: I wasn't going to say or ask otherwise.

Good luck, Captain.

*Hawk walks out.

1 hour later, Deltos IX Surface. The Raid Team beams down into the underground catacombs beneath one of the major cities. The team consists of 5 people, including Sam and T'mar. All the team members have Republic Phaser Pistols holstered at their waist, with a spare power-pack next to it. There's a Tricorder at the opposite hip, and a PSG fitted to their left arm (or right arm if they're left-handed).

Sam leads the team heading North.*

T'mar: Sam, where are we headed?

Sam: Tara's Apartment Building. She's probably there while she waits for a Duranus ship to pick her up.

T'mar: Right.

Sam: Okay people, keep cool. We do this one by the book.

*T'mar feels someone nearby with her telepathy and lets everyone else know telepathically. They then get ready to pull their phasers, before they hear them and the PSGs buzz as they lose power.*

T'mar: Someone just rewrote the book!

Sam: Everyone down!

*Sam and T'mar dive for cover as two disruptor rifles open fire, nailing two other team members while one manages to get to cover just in time. Sam tries to reactivate her pistol, to no avail.*

T'mar, any ideas?!

T'mar: Back to basics! *She pulls out a flashbang, pulls the pin and throws it at the attackers. The flash is noticeable, and fire stops as the team hears footfalls moving away.*

That did it.

Sam: Everyone okay?

Security Officer: Danvals and Enrique are down!

*He kneels next to them and checks there pulses. He turns to Sam and shakes his head.*

Sam: Damn...

*T'mar walks over and looks at Danvals' jacket's inside pocket, pulling out a photograph of a women and child, before putting it in her pocket.*

T'mar: He had a wife and son... he turns 6 in a little over a month...

Security Officer: And Enrique has a fiance waiting for him on Dralos...

Sam: We can mourn later...

*Sam stands up and walks over.*

Right now we have a job to do and by God, one way or another we're gonna do it.

*They here their phasers come back online.*

Security Officer: They must be out of range.

*Sam pulls out her tricorder.*

Sam: Alright, they've split up. T'mar, you and Chadwick take the one headed East, I'll take the one headed West.

T'mar: Understood.

*They split up. After shadowing her target for a few minutes, Sam's tricorder goes dead. Her Phaser's still functioning however, and as she turns the corner, she comes face-to-face with Tara, aiming a her Disruptor Pistol at her. The two are in a stand-off, both pointing their weapons at eachother.*

Tara: Dar'mei'na.

Sam: Tr'ian.

Tara: What happened to Tara?

*Sam stays silent.*

Set to stun?

*Sam still doesn't speak.*

Well mine isn't.

Sooner or later our arms are gonna get tired. You can't point that thing at me forever.

Sam: Give it up, Tr'ian.

Tara: Sam, you're not in a place to issue orders. I've got the gun using live rounds, not blanks.

Sam: Nice analogy. Let's see how it helps in prison.

Tara: All this and that's all you have to say to me?

Sam: I'll say the rest at your trial... and when they send you away for killing 13 people...

Tara: Including your Dad.

Be honest, Dar'mei'na. That isn't what burns you, is it? No, it would be too easy to hate me for what I did to your Father. We both know what really triggered this obsession with me.

I played you... lied to you... betrayed you...

Sam: If you get near a point...!

Tara: That's what burns you isn't it? Not that I killed your Dad... and not just that I used you... but that I used you so easily! That I used you so completely and you fell for every second of it!

Sam: Tara... drop the Disruptor. Now.

Tara: Sure.

*Tara places the Disruptor on the ground, and Sam slowly begins to approach, cautiously, before Tara hits a device on her ankle and Sam hears her phaser die again. Tara spears her into a wall before laying several punches on her face. She steps back, getting into a fighting stance as Sam gets back up and takes a swing at her. Tara ducks under it and lays a roundhouse kick to her gut followed by an uppercut. Sam regains her balance and the two get back into fighting stances.*

You never could beat me, Sam.

Sam *masked anger*: After everything we've been through, I have one last favour to ask you.

Tara: What?

Sam *unmasked anger*: Shut... the hell... up!

*Sam punches Tara in the face with a right hook, before round-housing her into the wall and laying several kicks to her abdomen, before Tara catches one and pushes it away, tackling into Sam and taking her to the floor.

Elsewhere, T'mar and Chadwick have entered a large chamber. They here their phasers shut down and run to cover as Disruptor fire opens up on them.*

Chadwick: I'm really beginning to hate Orions!

T'mar: I know the feeling!

*T'mar opens her mind and locates the shooter.*

Got her! Cover me?

Chadwick: Yes sir!

T'mar: On three.

*T'mar counts down with her fingers, and Chadwick sprints across the chamber, drawing the shooter's fire. T'mar waits a couple of seconds before running to a ladder and climbing it. She then stealthily works her way towards the shooter.

Suddenly, just as he dives for cover, Chadwick gets nailed in the shoulder, going down and rolling across the floor, slamming into the barrier he was aiming for. T'mar hears the cry of pain, and steps up the pace.

On the first floor, Chadwick cradles his burned shoulder, wincing in pain before dragging himself fully behind cover and propping himself up.

Back on the Catwalks, T'mar spots Sara with rifle in hand and trained on her previous position. She sneaks up behind her.*

Sara: Where the hell's the other one?

*T'mar locks her arm around Sara's neck and puts her in a sleeper hold.*

T'mar: Right here.

Try to reach for that knife and your head is gonna get some personal time with the deck, got it?

*Sara carefully nods, releasing the rifle. T'mar puts restraints on her and drags her back down the Chadwick's position.*

You okay?

Chadwick *painful, but trying to put on a cheer*: Nothing Andrews can't fix when we get back to the ship. Sir.

T'mar: T'mar to Republic, we have Sara. 3 to beam up. Beam Chadwick directly to Sickbay.

David *Over comm*: Stand by. Where's the Captain?

T'mar: We had to split up. Danvals and Enrique are dead.

*A moment of silence passes*

David *Over comm*: Understood. Ready to beam you up.

T'mar: Energise.

*Back with Sam and Tara, the two are still brawling, with Tara holding the upper hand, laying a dozen strong punches to Sam's face, now bleeding from her (probably broken) nose. Sam gradually collapses to her knees under the beatdown before hitting Tara with a double axe-handle to the abdomen, following up with a shoulder across her upper torso, aiming for her face. Both are now on the floor, trying to get up. Tara is the first back to her feet and hits Sam with a roundhouse to her head, before stamping on her back. Suddenly, they hear a beeping from Tara's belt. As Sam gets up, Tara puts on a really smug grin.*

Tara *mocking*: I'd love to stay and chat, but my ride's here!

Sam: Tara!

*Sam tackles into her just as she beams out, getting caught in the matter-stream. They materialise on an Orion transporter pad mid-motion and fall to the floor, with Sam pinning Tara down, laying a serious rage-filled beatdown, before Tara counters and kicks her off, jumping to her feet, grabbing Sam by the collar, and throwing her into the wall of the Transporter. As Sam tries to recover, a forcefield comes up separating the two. Sam looks around and sees that they're on a small Orion shuttle, probably only designed for 2 people, and probably warp capable. Sam and Tara just glare at eachother hatefully before Tara turns away to the console and warps out.

R.S.S. Republic, Brig. T'mar is showing Sara the sensor feed as the shuttle warps out before they can reach it. Sara stares at the screen in disbelief and anger as her Sister abandons her.*

T'mar: So much for family.

*Hawk walks in, and Sara glares at him.*

Sara: Go to hell.

I'm not telling you a damn thing.

Hawk: You saw the feed. She's abandoned you. You don't owe her anything.

If it's protection--

Sara: Family loyalty means something to me.

*T'mar leads her into a cell. Sara drops her head as she sits on the bench.*

Sara *muttering*: I'm going to make you pay for this, sis...

*OOC: Okay, I really enjoyed writing this. I have wanted to do this confrontation between Sam and Tara for ages.

I especially liked this part:

Quote:
Tara: Dar'mei'na.

Sam: Tr'ian.

Tara: What happened to Tara?

*Sam stays silent.*

Tara: Sure.
What do you guys think? Of this part and the post in general.
