Terrace watchs as cole walks off the observation deck. Being alone now he watchs as the a nearby star enters his view. He pulls out his padd turning it on he takes a look at his family. He hadnt spoken to his wife since the war started so long ago. He had never gotten another chance either. She had been killed at the fall of cesti prime. It seems so long ago now. Now there remaines of the home fleet were wandering a small portion of space, but he knew they would be ready.

Tucker: The Black Phantom was retrofitted with state-of-the-art Federation offensive and defensive technology. That includes Omega Disruptors, Zeta Torpedoes, and AT Shields. It also has Republic Zero-Point Cannon technology. This is all tech that the Federation and Republic feel cannot be allowed to remain in Orion hands.

Sanders: Do we know anything about which Cartel took the plans?

Jack: Yes. The Duranus Cartel.

Sanders: I've heard of them. They've been around since the mid-24th Century, but I thought they were just mobsters - slavers, dealers in contraband, etc.

Jack: They were, until a few months ago.

Tucker: A few months ago, the Orion Syndicate was split in two when a large chunk of the Cartels separated and united with several other Crime Syndicates: The Kar'moon Alliance.

Jack: The two powers are in a state of mob war. Over a hundred civilian ships have been lost in the Shoal Zone from the crossfire alone - over 2000 civilians dead. The Orion Syndicate is losing.

Tucker: Thanks to an unknown benefactor, the Duranus Cartel has managed to receive a new class of Vessel, and been able to upgrade their existing ones. Combine that with the cartel's excessive wealth, and you get the Orion equivalent of St. George's Golden Cavalry.

Sanders: With the technology stolen from the Federation, they could even the odds against the Kar'moon.

Jack: Which is the one reason Command was willing to let them get away with it.

Better to have a crime syndicate where we know where they stand and how to reason with them - not to mention who have morals - than a bunch of cut-throats.

Tucker: But, it's not that simple. The Black Phantom also has a Temporal Node, stolen from the Borg. That is technology which has been outlawed by every single Khitomer Convention since 2415. It is only allowed to be researched on one planet, with equal participation from all interested parties. No way in hell can we let the Orions reverse-engineer it.

Sanders: Danny? Opinions?
Danny: The Cartel has bases along what they call the Carimiri corridor here... my links to the underworld do indeed stretch to say that they are linking up with their first buyer... Renegade Breen who have been hell bent to kill any humans they cross paths with..

The Federation and Republic have been exporting and creating advanced technology that this fleet could rival them within a couple years.. Especially given the weakening state of things we need to stamp them out if we want to avoid more bloodshed.

I suggest we move to the outlying comm hubs and do this...

We set up spying hubs so we can moniter their movements and goings on... Every crate every person.. We get the layout for the main base and plan a heist... of sorts.. with a group of 11-13 people myself and the Captain included..

I have something special in mind for the Captain and a select few.

*Shows the renegade Breen's paths throughout the quadrant.*

So we may do as we may and get the tech..

The Dresden before they are aware can start sinking the vessels of this Cartel before they launch from the dry dock...

If something goes wrong we call in the Calvary and do this the messy way..

Cole: sir

Terrace: before the fleet left i sent a message for all worlds to cooperate with them.

Cole: why?

Terrace: if we couldnt stop them you think they could? they will wait and learn what they can when we are ready we will send in prowlers to gather intel and prepare ourselves. Besides we still have a hefty weapon. All current ships are being refitted with special upgraded weapons . WE didnt have the tesseract for all those years and not put it to good use.
OOC: Oh not yet man.. these things are something that I do plan to explain how they can be beaten...

Officer: Sir... I can't believe Cutter was the one that sabotaged everything... Why... How... His nerves were all over the place... What happened over there with him anyway...

Terrace: all you need to know is that his file is sealed and classified. Maybe one day afer this is all over we will have time to look back and think of what happened

If something goes wrong we call in the Calvary and do this the messy way..
Tucker: One problem.

Jack: Command wants this done quietly. The Orions have a Mutual Defence pact with the UNSC. Command does not want another war.

As for the Breen, same deal. We do not want a war with the Breen. The Breen will call the Tzenkethi for help and we can't hold them both off. We'll call in our allies and before you know it, we've got a Galaxy-wide War on our hands.

Sanders: Which is where we come in?

*He looks to Danny.*

We're unidentifiable assets. The Orions won't be able to link us back to the Federation.

Tucker: I wouldn't have put it quite like that... but essentially...

The Dresden and Excalibur will be on standby in case things go pear-shaped.

Jack: Fortunately, we already know where that Cartel ship is gonna be.

Tucker: We leaked word of this to the Letheans. Since they're always open for new tech, they've put in a bid to buy the schematics for us.

Sanders: For us? What did we offer them in exchange?

Jack: Medical technology and a supply line carrying medical supplies and food desperately needed on the Lethean Homeworld.

Tucker: We also agreed to help them rebuild their infrastructure. They were hit the hardest by the economic crash before the civil war.

Jack: The leader of the Duranus Cartel is going to meet with the Letheans and Breen at Letheas Prime. We'll be waiting just across the border if things turn sour.

Sanders: Let me guess; me and Danny sneak aboard the Orion ship, wipe the schematics, and get back here?

Tucker: Basically, but if you can retrieve the plans, that works too.
