  1. RES TALON MISSION BRIEFING 51802.01 - Season 23 Torek had allowed Leah to approach and after an exchange of information, dheno and other crewmen were taking the captured Othan guards back to the ship for questioning, and lending aid to any of those that had been held hostage. Torek had spoken with Laehval and was pointing out what systems needed to be restored as priority. (someone fold up the cardboard tKsa helping some injured and drop in the real one, same with the t'A) BEGIN SIM BEGIN SIM BEGIN SIM [11:15 pm] KhreRiovtRex: @ +t'Temarr+ Status report Fhaen.

[11:19 pm] KhreRiovtRex: @+t'Temarr+ It sounds as if au mission was more of a success than we had wished for. See that the survivors have what they need and we will contact the fleet back at Justarus that it is now safe for them to send aid and check in their families or associates that were settled here.

We will need transport to the other continent to see what they may have destroyed or stolen, as our main administration and space port to support the Shipyards is based there. Do au have any reports to let us know what has been found? [11:23 pm] Laehval tTemarr: ::Also to Torek.:: S'Bien here is our operational expert and will help organize your people to get them back their home sectors.

  2. RES TALON MISSION BRIEFING 51801.25 - SEASON 23 After the team had pressed upon the main holding compound, realizing they had already taken out many of the guards, some help evidently came from inside, with those being held prisoner, overcoming the remaining guards while they were focused on t'Ksa, Pexil and Koga. After a few tense words, a spokesman called t'Ksa forward, and he moved forward to meet her as well, the others covering him with the obtained weapons to make sure these supposed "Galae' members, were not an Othan trick. Torek tr'Nalus has moved towards the gate to speak with tKsa.

  4. RES TALON MISSION BRIEFING 51801.11 - Season 23 !!! The Talon away team had beamed down to the planet of Quatel to investigate the status of the planet and its people. They have found a large amount of people outside of the town, locked in a high fenced corral. Approximately 50 workers and 5 guards head out to harvest some sort of tuber root that grows well here. The workers all lined up before a small out building and take the tools and bags handed to them to start collecting, so some of our security and team infiltrated the group. The AT attempted to take out as many of the guards as possible, however a standoff has ensued. The work gang, only seeing weapons fire, quickly take refuge in the other storage buildings. They know if whoever is doing this loses, that their families will be made to pay, so they must not be involved. others take off back towards the camp, and a few turn to help the newcomers... t’A ordered the team to close in on one holdout that had barricaded himself in a work shed and ordered the team to take him out. Upon bursting in security forces took out what appeared to be an Othan guard, still just a youth. that had obviously been pressed into service for the Othan. Others on the team, moved back towards the main camp to attempt surprise and to liberate the rest of those being held hostage. [11:12 pm] KhreRiovtRex: Questions after that novel?

STSF Seiben: I don't think this was a good idea.. Rue Wydown: Back to the shuttle? Just a few minutes. ::tucking her PADD away:: With luck the boys are back with some news. Heather Jamieson: :: Walking with Seiben, scanning all the while :: August Jax Robinson: no how long until we reach a town or something? ACTION: There is only a sliver of each of the 2 moons showing this night. The shuttle had gotten several miles up into the mountains, but still had quite a distance to go, but as they had been told, machinery did not function correctly in a an area up above the lake STSF Seiben: It's pretty dark, should we head back to the shuttle?? Rue Wydown: That depends. How did you do with getting the shuttle working? ::pushes back a tree branch, retracing her steps back to the shuttle:: Heather Jamieson: I am up for either. STSF Seiben: Let's head back. We won''t make it to our destination in the dark August Jax Robinson: I was able to get minimal systems going, replicator, lights, heat and comm's STSF Seiben: We'll try again in the morning STSF Seiben: morning* Rue Wydown: ::steps back into the clearing where the shuttle is:: So it looks like we'll be here for the night. STSF Seiben: ::looks at his tricorder:: We still have about 11km to go August Jax Robinson: wonderful ACTION: Heather and Seiben are about 3 miles up the mountain from the shuttle, and 4 miles from their destination. It is virtually pitch black with lots of loose footing Rue Wydown: We've got food, shelter and water. And Holly watching out for us. What more could we need? ::amused by this adventure:: STSF Seiben: Oh sorry.. my tricorder GPS just updated. We're halfway between shuttle and mountain. Still think it's better to head back to the shuttle and continue in the morning. August Jax Robinson: {{{Boooo}} STSF Seiben: (awww) August Jax Robinson: {{half way! don't be a sissy... keep going}} STSF Seiben: (But I don't wanna!) STSF_BluRox: (there is a major dice roll in my favor either way.....) Heather Jamieson: We should settle for the night. STSF Seiben: Where can we shelter? I have some Ration Packs in my bag. Rue Wydown: ACTION>Loose footing equals loose rocks. STSF Seiben: Well, you're the scientist and ranking officer. You got a tent in there? Or should we built something or find a cave... STSF_BluRox: ((no no boys and girls..you walked off with your tricorders, you do not get a magic tent) STSF Seiben: (expected as much) August Jax Robinson: {{Naked and afraid doesn't get a tent or clothes}} Heather Jamieson: We should find somewhere we can rest. :: Looks at her scans :: Rue Wydown: ((This is not Harry Potter. No magic wands either)) STSF_BluRox: (let's pass on the naked and just stay with afraid) Rue Wydown: Hey, you up for popcorn and a movie? ::glances at Jax:: If this thing has enough juice? STSF Seiben: Maybe we should've stayed in the shuttle? Oh well, too late now. STSF_BluRox: (remember, tricorders were having issues even when you left the shuttle, they continue to have lapses in picking up information) STSF Seiben: I agree. My tricorder doesn't have good reception. August Jax Robinson: {{Agree Blu }} STSF Seiben: (like my cellphone service provider lol) STSF_BluRox: (thinks the two expert campers are sleeping at the shuttle, while my city boys are off hiking in the dark.....what could go wrong?) August Jax Robinson: {{BRB - Refill}} STSF Seiben: (yeah, I haven't gone camping in almost 20 years... it shows doesn't it ) Rue Wydown: ((and I was camping 2 weeks ago.)) Heather Jamieson: :: Looks around :: : ACTION: As darkness has taken hold, the temperature continues to drop and it has become a bit uncomfortable STSF_BluRox: (for you species without fur) STSF Seiben: ::struggles to find his footing, shining his armlight out in front of him:: August Jax Robinson: <<Bak>> Rue Wydown: ACTION> Our lead hiker triggers a rock slide of loose gravel that affects the one in the back of this expedition STSF Seiben: Ahh ::falls;: STSF Seiben: Oof! ::falls on his butt:: August Jax Robinson: ::Climbs into the Shuttle::: I guess the others made it to town Heather Jamieson: Ahh! :: falls in sync :: STSF_BluRox: ACTION: As luck, and my pair of Earth and Stone dice command.... They begin tumbling down the hillside together, and a rather unhealthy crunch is heard..... STSF_BluRox: (both, give me a roll 1-10) STSF Seiben: (unlesss.. does KOA count? If so, then 15 years :P ) STSF Seiben: (6) Heather Jamieson: (4) STSF_BluRox: now a 1 2 or 3? STSF Seiben: 2 Heather Jamieson: 1 STSF_BluRox: (Col Mustard, in the Library, with the lead pipe)....oh wait...wrong game....) Rue Wydown: +Republic+ ::as she's sinking into her chair:: Wydown to Republic. STSF Seiben: (I live in Toronto.. to me 'rouging it' is staying in a place with no WiFi ) August Jax Robinson: ((That was my Pick too!!}} STSF_BluRox: ACTION: As the two of them tumble together, a tree decides to help break their fall.....and evidently.... Heather's ankle Rue Wydown: Did Seiben or Jamieson tell you how long they'd be gone? STSF_BluRox: Holly @> +Commander Wydown+ What can we do for you? Heather Jamieson: :: tears up :: Ah...Seiben....I think it may be broken. It hurts. STSF Seiben: What is? Uh oh. I think I'm in one piece. I'll help you to a shelter STSF Seiben: If I can find one. STSF_BluRox: (It is also bent at a very nasty angle) Rue Wydown: +Republic+ Hey Holly. Just doing our check in call. I've got two members of my away team who haven't returned to the shuttle. We've got minimal scanners due to the interference here. I'm hoping you guys can scan and let me know that they're still alive and that I don't have to scrap their remains off the side of the mountain in the morning. Rue Wydown: ((Here's a hint guys - at this point you're going to probably have to build a shelter and not expect to stumble on one in the dark)) STSF Seiben: ;;helps Heather up and walks ahead:: Trees trees and more trees. Almost like a Bob Ross painting. ACTION: Seiben and Heather are still on the side of a mountain, a bit less then 3 miles from the ship. It is very dark, and very steep Rue Wydown: ((Google what would Bear Grylls do if you need help)) STSF_BluRox: (ok..you just slid down a hillside, it is still very steep...where is this walking around?) Rue Wydown: Hey Jax, what movie do you want to watch? Heather Jamieson: I can't move much Seiben. August Jax Robinson: Jaws 54? STSF Seiben: I'll grab some of these branches and vines and try to build some kind of shelter. I sort of remember my Academy Survival Training Rue Wydown: Is that one where the tornado is full of sharks? STSF_BluRox: (Seiben, you just got a bonus point that kept you and Heather from falling down the next hill as you tried to help her walk...just for the Bob Ross comment..... ) STSF Seiben: (lol yay)))) Heather Jamieson: I don't think I can move. :: sits :: STSF Seiben: Stay there, I'll gather up some branches and build a fire STSF_BluRox: Holly> @+Rue+ We'll run a scan for you, but we've also had some difficulty with that region...hence why your team was sent in, but we'll run a full scan and get right back to you...please hold August Jax Robinson: no that is sharknado 1 through 233 STSF Seiben: ::Gets some large branches, leaves and vines and sets about building a makeshift shelter:: August Jax Robinson: this is the one where the Shark gets a bigger- bigger boat and tries to race the aussie Rue Wydown: Ooh, I liked that one. Que it up and I"ll get the popcorn. STSF_BluRox: (Shame, shame , shame.....somebody doesn't know their Enemy Within TOS episode.....Tos Season 1: ep 5) August Jax Robinson: ::taps console and pulls up Jaws 54 and 55 if they have time, or are awake!:: STSF_BluRox: (or TNG: Season 4, epi 9, Final Mission...tisk tisk) Rue Wydown: ::returns after a few moments with buttered popcorn and sodas:: Heather Jamieson: :: Moves over slowly :: Let me help you. Heather Jamieson: Aww STSF Seiben: ::sticks the branches in the ground and pulls them together to form a roof:: I wouldn't recommend that. You'll make your ankle worse. August Jax Robinson: Grape soda, Sweeeeeet STSF Seiben: ::ties up the branches together with the vines and puts the leaves on top for a little tiny bit of insulation sort of:: STSF Seiben: Maybe can you build a fire? STSF Seiben: Lots of wood and stuff lying about Rue Wydown: I could be worried and go charging after the team, get myself lost or hurt. Or I can just chill until morning and then see what happened in the daylight Heather Jamieson: :: Puts her head in her hands :: I've messed this up, this mission. STSF_BluRox: HOLLY> @ +Commander Wydown+ Sensors are still having difficulty scanning that area that you were heading towards, as well as that area in the lake near the dam. We have both you and Jax telemetry readings at the shuttle, and are showing much weaker readings about halfway up the mountain from you of two other signs. Both are week, but one seems very off, as if in some sort of stress situation. The LtCmd Jamison is showing some sort of duress if I read this right. STSF_BluRox: unfortuantly, we cannot beam them out. My suggestion would be to wait until morning and perhaps to check on them, or see if you are able to reach them on your communicators. We've been unable to reach them. Rue Wydown: +Republic+ I'm not sure our communicators will work without the shuttle boosting them. Send me the coordinates and we'll head out at first light. August Jax Robinson: +Holly+ Jamison was born in Duress Heather Jamieson: :: Hugs herself :: It's getting colder. STSF_BluRox: @+Commander Wydown+ Sending to you know. let us know if you need additional personnel to assist you. Rue Wydown: We're going to have to pack a survival kit before we leave in the morning. STSF_BluRox: (I've changed my hometown in the weather channel to Winterfell for the rest of December, next month it goes back to Hoth) August Jax Robinson: maybe I should stay here... to get the shuttle going again? Rue Wydown: @+Republic+ Probably going to need additional personnel to help with the search. Can you have them beam down to the dam site and head up in the morning with the local form of transport? STSF Seiben: ::finishes building the shelter, and starts to build a fire:: It's not much, but I guess it's better than nothing. At least we'll be out of the wind in this spot STSF_BluRox: @ Holly> + We'll have to send another shuttle, we're still unable to beam to the dam either, thus your current shuttle Rue Wydown: Yeah, that's a good idea. But getting a good nice rest will help both of us. STSF_BluRox: and.... STSF_BluRox: Pause sim Rue Wydown: +Republic+ Got it. Have them bring extra parts and equipment. Jax can send up a list. STSF_BluRox: PAUSE SIM STSF_BluRox: PAUSE SIM August Jax Robinson: ::Paused:: STSF Seiben: ::Paused:: STSF_BluRox: Bob Ross most likely saved one of your lives tonight....your negative modifier got Heather out of a Double Critical Fail..I rolled a 1, and so did she..... Rue Wydown: We'll find them frozen in the morning STSF Seiben: August Jax Robinson: i love Bob STSF Seiben: yeah, probably STSF Seiben: Bob is the man STSF_BluRox: Well, I gave you both references.......they won't freeze, but they aren't going to feel great either........ Heather's broken ankle however...we'll have to see Rue Wydown: I gotta head out guys. If I don't see you Thursday - have a Merry Christmas STSF_BluRox: Ok and with that....Crew Dismissed. Happy Holidays to you all.

[11:43 pm] Lerak trPexil: :: scanning :: [11:44 pm] Laehval tTemarr: ACTION> The forest began to thin and they could see the signs of a small settlement. Outside of the warmth of the forest, it began to grow colder. A dusting of snow covered the ground beyond the trees. The houses were charming, wooden structures made from the trees from the forest. There was little to be seen in the way of technology or modern materials. [11:44 pm] STSF Seiben: Mm [11:44 pm] Lerak trPexil: :: Points :: There, up ahead.

[11:49 pm] STSF Seiben: ::nods:: [11:52 pm] Laehval tTemarr: ACTION> As they move (as quietly as possible) through the forest, they are struck by how silent the settlement is. There seems to be no movement within the village itself. [11:52 pm] m_k_tksa: ::whispering:: Are we sure these are lifesigns? And that they're RIhan? [11:53 pm] Lerak trPexil: I do na like this.

[11:57 pm] Lerak trPexil: I am na getting anything.. let me try some things. [11:57 pm] STSF Seiben: Much much interference [11:57 pm] Laehval tTemarr: ACTION> At the end of the village, they can see the beginnings of a security enclosure. Large vertical poles anchor tall fencing that surrounds a huge open area. The lifesigns are coming from beyond the fencing, though the Away Team can already see the people they are tracking. [11:58 pm] KhreRiovtRex: Continues working on report to send back to the home world [11:58 pm] Lerak trPexil: I don't know... wait.. I have something. At the far end of the settlement.

[12:00 am] Laehval tTemarr: ACTION> What seems like thousands of people are trapped behind the fence, clustered together in familial groups and huddled against the cold.

Thoughts from the probe reading. How much interference from the singularity remnants of the destroyed ships? Will it interfere with transport, or would flying a shuttle through that be more dangerous? STSF Seiben: Judging by these readings, I don't think I would recommend transport, though it is possible. I'd say the less riskier option is to go by shuttle. Though there is certainly much risk in both options. Lerak trPexil: I would not be surprised if the probes signals are being blocked..

KhreRiovtRex: The same is noted on the other large continent, lifeforms showing in all major population centers, but a noted lack of large energy sources. Some energy is working however. KhreRiovtRex: We're picking up enough to see that they've not decimated the place.... well, not all of it. But it looks much like on the homeworld.

KhreRiovtRex: Could this na have been done at the same time as the probe was sent to na waste time? m_k_tksa: ::gives directions on what pieces of equipment they should take and what to pack:: KhreRiovtRex: :: knows that she's na removed either of their tongues:: STSF Seiben: Sending the probe was safer I'd say. The probe still is transmitting. Lerak trPexil: The only proper test is a cylinder, but since we are not detecting any power sources on the surface I'm hopeful for that route. :: Readying the RAC instructions to the bay :: KhreRiovtRex: So...again, I ask. Do aur teams go down by hteij or RAC STSF Seiben: I'd recommend by RAC Lerak trPexil: RAC. KhreRiovtRex: Perhaps Pexil, au should look at those readings again. There is clearly power sources on both continent, just not much on the one KhreRiovtRex: Very well. I'll have security and t’Temarr check the more affected area. I want au two, to head to the eastern continent with the Daise Maenak to where we are picking up large numbers of life forms, and assess the populace, and see if there is any indication of Othan influence still in the area.

STSF Seiben: Hopefully, it won't be long to break it in. KhreRiovtRex: She has stated she can na trust me, and walked out without being dismissed. Laehval tTemarr: What was her reasoning for that?

Laehval tTemarr: But au can na wipe out months of irrational behavior with io brief conversation where au completely prove her point by telling her to usurp au. KhreRiovtRex: And yet, when I make attempts at amends, it is thrown hrrau my face Laehval tTemarr: By your own admission, au threw that in her face. ::She tossed the dagger back onto the desk.:: How is that making amends?

Galae put me in charge of our defense in this sector. KhreRiovtRex: They felt I was still able to do the job........ that and they'd still be in hiding if na for this crew.... But, are au having doubts and questioning their decisions as well? Laehval tTemarr: ::Her eyebrow lifted again.:: Au think the Kheinsa is corruptible simply because he is her mate? That is an insult to his profession. ::She waved a hand at the dagger.:: Your attempt at making amends ended in an ultimatum where au invited the Daise'Maenak to eliminate au, and au wonder why I would be concerned? Lerak trPexil: Oh, of medical matters. One of the women I knew from ch'Rihan is living with my parents and recovering nicely, Nalia. She is helping with chores and other odds and ends while she stays. Lerak trPexil: On behalf of my family I thank au for the efforts to help those people. KhreRiovtRex: She stated that she feared I would turn on the crew. I but told her if she felt I was that much of a danger, then to remove it. m_k_tksa: Oh?

Laehval tTemarr: I would say that is na an unfounded fear, given your past behavior. Your actions and thoughts were focused on the Othans and defeating them, but au also alienated yourself from the crew. As I said, trust takes time. Lerak trPexil: I don't know her that well, all things considered. I guess seeing her in that state I took a heap of pity on her. m_k_tksa: ::amused chuckle:: I see.

STSF Seiben: Ie. I do KhreRiovtRex: The other reason I've asked au fahd today, is that I am concerned about ....... our interactions. The crew holds au in high esteem, but it is noticeable, the tension that has built between us. KhreRiovtRex: We used to have a strong working relationship, one of trust and respect, that served us both well with the crew, as well as with each other. However, for the better part of the last year, I only seem to garner feelings of loathing, disrespect and au being short with me. m_k_tksa: ::just waits for t'Valtrix to go on:: Laehval tTemarr: Very well. Signal to all departments to finalize all transfers and inform them that we will be departing. KhreRiovtRex: :: trying to judge t’Ksa's reaction and mood:: STSF Seiben: Ie rekhai.. STSF Seiben: +Dept Heads+ We shall be departing soon. Please finalize your transfers KhreRiovtRex: This ship needs a strong united crew at this time. Au voice is held in high regard with the crew, so it would be in the best interest to our mission, that we try to reconcile whatever rift has formed between us. Laehval tTemarr: Signal the station and request departure authorization. m_k_tksa: And what exactly do au think has caused this rift that au have experienced? Lerak trPexil: :: Gets a delayed message notification on his ISD... sees it's Nalia. Shoves it over for later :: STSF Seiben: ::nods:: +Station+ This is the Talon requesting clearance to depart KhreRiovtRex: That is why I've asked au fahd, so that we can discuss whatever issue au have developed with me, and to see how we might work together to mend it. m_k_tksa: Permission to speak freely, Khre'Riov. KhreRiovtRex: At io time, au were the only person I could fully trust, and honestly it greatly bothers me, that relationship has been damaged. Laehval tTemarr: Station> +S'Bien+ Granted. Transmitting departure orders now. Happy hunting. STSF Seiben: ::nods:: Okay, we're ready to depart KhreRiovtRex: As au well know, I had made the decision, to retire and end my time in space, to raise my family. I thought I was done with this, but then I was forced back here, with promises that if I did, my family would na be hurt. Lerak trPexil: :: He wondered what the message contained, and it made him think of Laehval. For a while he'd been staring at cells of numbers :: Laehval tTemarr: Request readiness from all departments and then prepare for departure. KhreRiovtRex: The crew fahd, I have given all the chance to step away, back before we wrested control of chRihan back, afterwards before the attacks on the orbital platforms and again at the camps. All were offered to leave is they must, to reunite with family. It's my assumption, that since very few left, they wished to be fahd. Au however, I am unsure of? STSF Seiben: +Depts+ Can I get your current readiness statuses? KhreRiovtRex: :: sits back and waits to see if tKsa will engage into the conversation:: Lerak trPexil: +Koga+ Engineering reports ready. Cargo is safely aboard m_k_tksa: Again, permission to speak freely? ::wonders if the Khre'Riov will stop monologuing at some point and actually converse:: KhreRiovtRex: Fhaen, that is why I've asked au fahd. m_k_tksa: ::gives her a dark look:: If it was, au would have allowed me to speak five minutes ago when I asked the question earlier. Laehval tTemarr: ::Scrolling through the ISD, flipping the requests off to t'Rex that needed her attention, and replying to the department heads that needed transfer authorization.:: Lerak trPexil: :: Brings up the engineering status boards :: STSF Seiben: ::Receives responses from the other cardboard department heads"" All departments reported in. Prepping for departure. KhreRiovtRex: I'm sorry that au feel that way, I had assumed au would step in while I was speaking. Fhaen...it is obviously that au have a great anger towards me, and I am....... honestly trying to .... to fix this. m_k_tksa: Stepping in when another is speaking is rude. Lerak trPexil: :: Wish he had gotten some of that wine he brought aboard :: m_k_tksa: Au speak of trust and respect. It's hard maintain feelings of trust and respect when io labeled a traitor for expressing an opinion or for asking clarifying questions at a mission briefing situation so that io may understand the true scope of what the mission entails. After months of that sort of treatment, a crew member would feel that it would be in their best interest to stay distant, if na for the safety of the crew but certainly for their own wellbeing. STSF Seiben: ::Does all the necessary things:: We're good to go. Laehval tTemarr: Take us out. ::She settled back into her seat to watch the view screen.:: STSF Seiben: ::nods:: Taking us out. ::engages thrusters and powers out of the station:: KhreRiovtRex: But you conversed just fine there. I am trying here, I seriously want to know what it is that I have done to cause such a grievance between us. I had counted au as io of my own friends for years, and now I only feel contempt from au. Wait.......what? What do au mean... a traitor? Lerak trPexil: :: Looks out the viewscreen :: It's full of stars KhreRiovtRex: I don't....recall calling anyone such..... m_k_tksa: Seriously? STSF Seiben: I would hope it would be. Lerak trPexil: :: Dinner... they needed dinner together.. just her and him. Tiny bits of time. If that was all there was to be then, that's that. :: m_k_tksa: I do na have enough fingers and toes to count the many times au have either discounted opinions or outright called me or others a traitor to the Galae and ch'Rihan. KhreRiovtRex: I... Morgana....if I may, there was a period, that I was blind with grief, I had given up and planned to let the Elements take me, however as much as I tried, they seemed reluctant to take me, and I seriously wished nothing but to yy'a a the time. Others kept forcing me to come back and take charge, I may have said things in my grief and anger, that I should na have, and for that, I do apologize to au if any of it was directly pointed towards au STSF Seiben: ::heading on their course to the Othan area at a reasonable and prudent speed:: Lerak trPexil: Koga, are we heading out a warp 8? STSF Seiben: I'm heading out at the pre-designated speed limit of this particular area. Laehval tTemarr: Signal the Stinger and keep tabs on her. I don't want either of us to get lost out here. KhreRiovtRex: (lol Seiben!) STSF Seiben: (not making that mistake again lol) Laehval tTemarr: (( He's probably measuring in kilometers, too. )) STSF Seiben: (of course I am. What am I, a heathen? :P ) Laehval tTemarr: (( Colonials arise! )) STSF Seiben: ::signals Stinger and sets up tracking their movements:: KhreRiovtRex: I am trying to make amends fahd t'Ksa, to take responsibility for my words and actions, even if I do na remember it all..... m_k_tksa: We've all experienced grief and loss here. Au are na the only io who lost family members. But au have taken it to an extreme and alienated those who could have supported au. I canna feel sympathy for io who I fear and can na trust, because at any moment au could turn on io or all of us. KhreRiovtRex: Au feel I would do such? Even after we've taken back our planet and are working to make sure it does na happen again? I didn’t ask to be here. Au all, are here because au want to be. I was 'Forced' back and ie, others are dealing with loss and grief as well, which is why I offered any that needed the time to leave, they had a choice. Galae has na given me the same choice. My family was directly targeted in this mess, which is why I've taken this so personally. However, if au feel I am an ongoing danger, then fine, feel free to remove me. :: reaches down and pulls out her ie'yakk and slides it across the desk to t'Ksa:: As medical officer, au would be well within au right to remove me such. If au think it would make au all safer...then go ahead. m_k_tksa: ::rolls her eyes, stands up and heads to the door:: When au are done being so overly dramatic and want to actually have a conversation, let me know.

RES TALON MISSION BRIEFING 51710.12 - SEASON 22 Having returned from their outing, the time has come to start with our next mission, t'Vatrix has sent a message to all senior staff, and messaged N'Dak that she'd like to see them all in the conference room in 5 siuren.

I'm sure au would have liked a bit more time on the station to check back on friends and family back rhae the homeworld. If au have na had an opportunity to do so, we will be stationing out of this location for some time, and working in an outward radius of it's location until we are sure we've cut off the enemy at this point KhreRiovtRex: t'A will be briefed afterwards, I've asked her to keep an eye on the work crews from the shipyards as we don't know them KhreRiovtRex: :: passes out several ISD's to hand around the table:: Laehval tTemarr: ::Takes one down and passes it around.:: NDak: ::He continued to drink from a mug of hot tea that had a slightly citrus fragrance and a, whiff of cinnamon:: KhreRiovtRex: Each ISD I'm handing au, has a copy of this star map, ::points up to the screen, which is marked where we believe the current front lines with the Othan are. m_k_tksa: ::takes io of the ISD, catches the Kheinsa's eye before handing him io as well:: Lerak trPexil: :: Nods :: KhreRiovtRex: While I'm sure many of us including myself, would jol na more than to charge right to face that traitor tr'Tronius and his lot.... however, we have much more important work to do at the moment. That being to make sure that the homeworld is protected and has the resources needed to recover STSF Seiben: ::takes an ISD and passes it to the next person:: KhreRiovtRex: Part of this task to ensure it is protected, is to make sure the area surrounding the Jubel System, where we are here at the Justarus Shipyards, is held and secure. This is where the extra ships where hidden by Galae that helped us turn the tide. However, their numbers have been drastically lowered, and it will take time to rebuild KhreRiovtRex: we must make sure that this sector is secure. However, when they were attacked, and proud to say able to hold the Othan off until they withdrew, they also had not known of the incoming attack until it was almost too late KhreRiovtRex: A few scouts and probes have shown us that the Othan knocked out several key communications relays, as well as enacted a scorched-earth policy, much as they had on the last planet we had just assisted. Laehval tTemarr: ::She nodded in agreement with t'Rexan's plan, pleased that her previous suicidal rush had been tempered with reason and logic. The Othan could be anywhere now and they weren't going to catch up with them by hopping from colony to colony.:: KhreRiovtRex: We need to reach out, and secure the surrounding planetary systems, get the relays up and running, and assist any injured parties KhreRiovtRex: The Othan seem to have a strategy that targets anything that might be useful to us, while it is advancing through and withdrawing from a location NDak: ::He frowned. The dishonor with which the Othan veruul draped themselves with was intolerable.:: KhreRiovtRex: I am concerned about the Ustallan and Quatel systems, as well as Pallor, but out Dumo'kozen can investigate Pallor for now. KhreRiovtRex: What I want is your suggestions on how we go about this. KhreRiovtRex: Do we take Talon out with Stinger cloaked as advance scout? Do we keep the Talon near to the shipyards to show we are protecting it, and use the Stinger for shorter, smaller misisons? KhreRiovtRex: Fhaen, I would like to know au thoughts and recommendations KhreRiovtRex: https://www.stsf.net/forums/topic/21962-map-of-the-rihannsu-star-empire/ KhreRiovtRex: (Talon forums link to starmap) NDak: ::Frowns more deeply, considering over his tea:: STSF Seiben: :pondering, as he studies the starmap:: KhreRiovtRex: :: sets down her ISD, and picks up her water again:: NDak: There is an argument for either. m_k_tksa: I'm na the tactical expert, so I'm afraid I can't give an opinion on how the Talon or Stinger should be used. ::setting her ISD down:: STSF Seiben: Indeed there is. There's merit in both options. NDak: Leaving the Talon, rhae the systems would certainly lower the chances of the Othan attacking the system. NDak: However, flying the flag with a powerful vessel under the command of the Khre'Riov would also send a powerful message, rhae the peoples of these systems who we will have to do some convincing that we are here to help them. Laehval tTemarr: While helpful, the Stinger's cloak will be useless if we come across the Othans. It is their ship and technology. Without significant modifications, they could surely track the ship the same way we tracked theirs. NDak: Perhaps au could assist my daise engineer in that. KhreRiovtRex: :: turns to look at tKsa:: Au may na be a tactical expert, but au are our medical expert, and I am relying on au thoughts on how best to help the inhabitants, if they were left in as bad of shape as that last planet. What impact that would have, both on a supply basis, as well as how much aid we would currently be able to lend them. Your opinion is much valued KhreRiovtRex: Both excellent thoughts Destorie and Laehval...... KhreRiovtRex: Pexil, perhaps au can offer NDak's engineers some assistance with a way to hide Stinger from the rest of their fleet Lerak trPexil: I can work on quieting the emissions. KhreRiovtRex: ::turns to tr'Aieme:: Depending on the conditions we find, we will rely upon au thoughts of how to reassure them that ch’Rihan Galae are na the enemy STSF Seiben: Masking our signature. m_k_tksa: tr'Aieme> ::nods:: KhreRiovtRex: ::nods to Koga:: Ie, that would be helpful as well, work with Pexil on that fhaen Laehval tTemarr: The unique metals in the hull are the biggest flaw. ::She said quietly to Lerak.:: We need to find a way to negate those readings, as well. STSF Seiben: Ie rekkhai Lerak trPexil: :: nods :: KhreRiovtRex: :: turns back to Laeh and NDak:: I would hear from both of au, how au each would proceed at this point NDak: ::he glanced to Laeh, deferring to her:: Laehval tTemarr: I would na leave the Talon behind, Rekkhai. Our repairs are minor now and can be done while we are underway. Lerak trPexil: :: pulling up the Stinger specs :: KhreRiovtRex: ::sets glass down and nods to Laehval:: NDak? Au thoughts? Laehval tTemarr: Lack of supplies hinder us. If we scout the area, we may find others that are desperately needed, both here and on the station. NDak: ::Nods:: I agree. We should send a clear message to any Othan veruul left behind, as well as to the people of this quadrant. The Galae remains strong. KhreRiovtRex: The rest of au? Au thoughts? Do au agree? Lerak trPexil: Sounds valid. We need to make sure the Stinger is also armed as well as she can be. STSF Seiben: I agree. KhreRiovtRex: It is also possible that we may run into the rest of the Othan fleet that had been in retreat, as we knew they swung a wide berth around this station trying to get away from us. I fear I may also be leading au into more yy'a and destruction. As I said back on ch'Rihan, I will na hold it against any of the crew...or it's senioir officers, if au feel au do na agree, and would rather stay fahd at the sta KhreRiovtRex: station, I will na stop any one. m_k_tksa: Do we know the size of the remaining Othan fleet/ KhreRiovtRex: We do na, though we did destroy a rather large number in the battle in our homeworld space KhreRiovtRex: We are hoping that we may find a few of the relays up, but unable to send a signal, that may help us get a read on fleet size KhreRiovtRex: NDak, do au need any replacement crew for Stinger, or wish any of our senior staff join au? Lerak trPexil: I will make sure we have enough replacement relays ready to go on the Talon if need be. KhreRiovtRex: Very well, we will take both Talon and Stinger. Laeh and NDak, I'll leave it to the two of au to decide if we go to Ustallan or Quatel first KhreRiovtRex: I do na think it wise that we split up STSF Seiben: ::nods:: m_k_tksa: ::collects her ISD's:: KhreRiovtRex: Koga, start making preparations to depart and get the clearances from the station. Once tTemarr notifies au of our coordinates, relay to Stinger, set course, and get underway. STSF Seiben: Ie, will do KhreRiovtRex: If nobody else has anything, I'll leave NDak and Laeh to work on our plans. The rest of au are dismissed. Laehval tTemarr: ::She nodded.:: KhreRiovtRex: t'Ksa.....if au would fhaen, I would like a few siuren of au time, let us withdraw to my chambers so we do na disturb Laeh and Destorie m_k_tksa: ::nods, tucking the ISD's under her arm:: KhreRiovtRex: PAUSE SIM KhreRiovtRex: PAUSE SIM KhreRiovtRex: PAUSE SIM KhreRiovtRex: Nice sim folks, I think I'll serve ale next time, to loosen au tongues and get some of you talking! lol KhreRiovtRex: Laeh, do you have anything before we dismiss? Laehval tTemarr: Isn't Romulan Ale just blue vodka? STSF Seiben: lol KhreRiovtRex: Shhhh KhreRiovtRex: lol KhreRiovtRex: ok then... Crew Dismissed. Have a nice weekend m_k_tksa: Gnight guys Laehval tTemarr: Night, all. STSF Seiben: Night KhreRiovtRex: Night Lerak trPexil: See some of you Monday KhreRiovtRex: Yep!
  15. RES TALON MISSION BRIEFING - 5171005 - Season 22 When we had last left off, t'Vatrix had spoken to N'Dak about her plans to work in coordination with those overseeing control of the Justarus Shipyards, to make sure that we had a strong forward base that was held not only to repair and replace old ships with new, but to make sure it also did na fall into Othan hands. The base was well positioned between Othan space and ch’Rihan, so we quickly determined that this area must be fortified and we would would work outward from here to ensure we removed any nearby Othan strongholds or incursions. t'Vatrix has taken Koga and Pexil off to eat and discuss their department needs, while NDak had been discussing with tKsa our plans and trying to smooth things over between the Khre'Riov and Daise Maenak. Laehval had been off working on verifying some encryption code at the request of t'Vatrix (because it was the easiest thing we could ask Cardboard Laehval to do) Destorie N’Dak: (Jolan tru) KhreRiovtRex: (spy!)

STSF Seiben: ::Listens:: tAehjae: @::looks to Pexil:: Destorie N’Dak: Before we departed for this syetem, the Khre'Riov received an message encoded with a cipher known only to her and tr'Vatrix indicating he had survived the destruction of his vessel and that he was, for the moment alive. Laehval tTemarr: Au, as the Daise'Maenak, have the right to know what her state of mind is at this moment. I would say that with the delivery of this message, it is considerably better than before. She seems to be listening to reason and is na so eager to throw herself into battle for the sake of revenge. Lerak trPexil: Reliability of the data is too be seen, and will be marked as such. Destorie N’Dak: ::Glances to Laehval:: The Khre'Riov had asked us to keep that information secret.

Make sure au follow through with tTemarr on everything and make sure to update tKsa on anything that au feel might involve her department as well Destorie N’Dak: But I would caution against any optimism that he is still yet alive. m_k_tksa: I'll certainly consult with the Kheinsa about the situation. But there's only so much he can do. She has to want help for him to be able to help her. Her history says otherwise. m_k_tksa: ::and that brings t'Ksa back to her feelings that she's only there to keep everyone io else alive while the Khre'Riov goes on her suicide missions:: Destorie N’Dak: For h'nah the situation is stable and she has been far more open with me than I would have expected, given our history together. Laehval tTemarr: I think this has changed things for the better. ::She waved the ISD.:: However, if it does na, and she seems to be putting this ship and her crew in danger, I will need the support of both of au to do what must be done. Destorie N’Dak: ::He glanced to Laehval:: Each of us owe her, whether we want to admit it or not. I think we should try to help her through this as much as we can without endangering the crew, ship or Empire. tAehjae: @:: nods as she replaces her drink on the table:: Lerak trPexil:@:: Who guards the guards... interesting KhreRiovtRex: @ :: sees the rest of the food arriving:: Menkha.....I'm starving Lerak trPexil: Ie.. KhreRiovtRex: @ While we are fahd. I want to hear any concerns the 3 of au have. Regarding the ship, our current mission, or...even myself m_k_tksa: ::folds her arms, starting to look obstinate again:: KhreRiovtRex: @ Do na worry, I'll only shove au out an airlock if I don't like au authen.... :: grins at them all:: KhreRiovtRex: @ I"m kidding......just kidding..... Eat up, and let's here each of au thoughts. Laehval tTemarr: ::She looked pointedly at t'Ksa.:: And au, Daise'Maenak? STSF Seiben: @ ::receives his food:: tAehjae: @ I for oi am glad to have au back. I missed na having au on the ship tAehjae: @ :: takes a bite of her sandwich:: STSF Seiben: @ As am I. I'm looking forward to the mission and hope we can exact some revenge on them Lerak trPexil: :: @::eats : STSF Seiben: @::takes a bite of his food:: m_k_tksa: I will na allow her to endanger the crew. I'm sorry, the needs of the io do na outweigh the needs of the many. Destorie N’Dak: Fine, but au owe her at least the opportunity to work through this. m_k_tksa: If she shows any mental instability that will endanger the crew, the mission or others....na question. And she needs to want to work on it, as I told au. Destorie N’Dak: ::He glanced towards Laehval again.:: KhreRiovtRex: @Well? tAehjae: :::: @ mouth full of food ... looks to Koga KhreRiovtRex: :: @::disappointed, as she's given them the chance to speak their minds, away from the ship, and none have taken the opportunity:: STSF Seiben: @ As am I. I'm looking forward to the mission and hope we can exact some revenge on them KhreRiovtRex: @ :: well, she tried:: Laehval tTemarr: Ie, I agree. ::Nodding as she considered.:: Destorie N’Dak: ::He frowned:: Laehval tTemarr: I will give her the news of this message soon and suggest that she speak with the Kheinsa. Destorie N’Dak: Very well. I do na if she will be excited at such a prospect, as I said, I think she might be more willing to speak to t'Ksa first but if t'Ksa does not have the fortitude for that, then so be it. Destorie N’Dak: ::He waved a hand:: m_k_tksa: What exactly do au think I should be talking with her about, N'Dak? m_k_tksa: As I said, I'm an going to seek her out, but I would na shut her out. Her mercurial nature does na allow io to approach her and say "Hey, I hear au were having some problems." ::shakes her head:: tAehjae: @:: swallows her food:: I am still leary of NDak but I think is will always have that distrust of him. Although I will continue to work along side up him, I will na cause any trouble or start anything with him to dishonor him in the faces of the crew KhreRiovtRex: @ N'Dak has pledged his service to me, and I for one take him at his word on this matter. I know au both have had issues with one another in the past, but he is an Enarrain, leads the Stinger and is io of my trusted advisors. I ask that au give him a second chance, as I have. I have seen only good come from it. STSF Seiben: @ I’m sure it'll be good with him tAehjae: @I will follow his orders with the exception of putting au in harm’s way. I will na do that. I will protect au to the end of my life if I have to. He is the Enarrain I know this and is the reason I have followed his orders thus far. KhreRiovtRex: @Hann'yyo for au loyalty as well. We most likely should head back to the ship. They will begin to worry if we are gone too long. I do hope you all enjoyed the meal. The owner of this pub, is an old family friend. Destorie N’Dak: As au have said, many things have changed. Perhaps she would. I would na have imagined her to be as vulnerable as i witnessed her on the home world, but it happened. Destorie N’Dak: ::He paused, biting at his lip. It occurred to him he had na shared with either of them the scene, rhae the Khre'Riovs household:: m_k_tksa: ::gives him another "What-the-what?" look:, then rubs her temples:: Destorie N’Dak: ::He sighed:: I just wonder if she'd be more open to talking to the Kheinsa if it came from someone who has always been the closer of the three of us to her. Destorie N’Dak: ::Waves it off:: But I cannot make that decision for au. Laehval tTemarr: Na, so best to stop speculating. We shall see what she will do with this information. m_k_tksa: Just make sure au put any sharp objects and firearms away before au talk with her. KhreRiovtRex: pause sim KhreRiovtRex: pause sim KhreRiovtRex: pause sim STSF Seiben: ::Paused:: tAehjae: ::paused:: KhreRiovtRex: Thanks everyone for going over a little. The other group was having such great discourse I didnt' want to break it up! STSF Seiben: KhreRiovtRex: Night tKsa!! knowyou have to go! KhreRiovtRex: m_k_tksa: Gnight guys Laehval tTemarr: Night, Ksa. STSF Seiben: Night! KhreRiovtRex: tA, it was great to have you back with us, we'll get you caught up on the story and the logs are up if you wanna peak at them. KhreRiovtRex: Good to have you back as well Laehval, poor NDak's had to sit and talk to me all by his lonesome the last few weeks! Laehval tTemarr: I don't know how he survived. Laehval tTemarr: Poor thing. KhreRiovtRex: I know, right!? But we're glad you had a chance to get away and relax as well KhreRiovtRex: Ok, anyone have any comments, questions or anything they want to say before we close out this evening? : Ok, then Crew Dismissed! Night everyoneKhreRiovtRex
