: $::Missed shots start glancing off a forcefield erected around the compound::
VAdm Sankoh: % ::watches the battle on the ground, strafing the enemy troops when he gets a chance::
Lt TKirr: % ::rotates sideways and looks down through the window at the Marines::
Lieutenant FJ: %::sweeps over part of the compound keeping an eye on whats going on down below, and making sure no air assaults begin::
MajorAZinthys: $::Smiles as the external force is quickly neutralized::
MajorAZinthys: $+Drake+ Echo Squad, take care of that 'field so we can get on in.
Lieutenant FJ: %::fires into a swarm of the oppositions forces::
MCptAdamDrake: $ ::fires some more shots off, but watches as they hit a forcefield:: Damn, forcefield already. Tertiary diversion sequence. Jeddin and Davidson point A and B, I'll take C. Motley and Herrick cover.

MCptAdamDrake: $ Seven...
Lieutenant FJ
: %::moves into position to attack the forcefield:: sweeps over the forcefield laying into it heavily with phasers::
MCptAdamDrake: $ ::finalizes his coordinates and diversion:: We've got to scramble it.
: $ Now! ::hits the keys::
Lt TKirr
: % ::diverts power from shields into weapons::
VAdm Sankoh: % That forcefield wasn't on the reports... it's slowing us down.
Lieutenant FJ: %::moves into position for another pass, firing with the same intensity::
VAdm Sankoh: % +Atlantis+ Sullivan, come in.
MCptAdamDrake: $ ::watches as teh forcefield flutters and disappears - a console several hundred feet away exploding from a feedback pulse::
: $ We're good to go!
: $::Alpha, Bravo, and Charlie Squads storm in as the forcefield goes down::
Captain Sullivan: *Sank* Sulivan here
MajorAZinthys: $+Drake+ Good work, Echo
MCptAdamDrake: $ +Zinthys+ Thanks, Major, but we've got a long way to go.
: $::Rushes into the building::

MCptAdamDrake: $ Let's go, Echo squad! ::sprints in after the teams that enter the compound, lit corridors are filled with Romulans::
Lieutenant FJ
: %::returns to defensive flight, looking for any chance to help the boys on the ground::
MajorAZinthys: $::Stalls as Romulan ground troops stop the inital advance::
Captain Sullivan: *Sank* Your wish is my command, sir.

MajorAZinthys: $::Shoots Rommie scum::
Lt TKirr: % +8Ball+ Sehlat standing by. Any specific targets, sir?
VAdm Sankoh: ACTION> A wave of Romulan interceptors appear on sensors.
MajorAZinthys: $::Quickly surveys the firefight::
MCptAdamDrake: $ ::enters the Romulan compound and slams a Romulan with the butt of his rifle as it mindlessly rounds a corridor::
VAdm Sankoh
: % +Phantoms+ Incoming bandits!
Lt TKirr: % +8Ball+ ::stares:: Never mind.k
MCptAdamDrake: $ ::looks his tricorder on his wrist beacon:: +Zinthys+ Major, I can't isolate Trajeh's lifesigns.

Lt TKirr: % ::swerves towards the enemy reinforcements, charging weapons to full::
VAdm Sankoh: % +Phantoms+ Prepare to flank when they arrive.
Lieutenant FJ: %::moves to intercept incoming, reinforcing forward shields::
MCptAdamDrake: $ ::caps another Romulan that peeks out from beyond a cargo container::
: $+Drake+ Echo Squad, find him now!
Lt TKirr: % ::formates with Phantoms::
MCptAdamDrake: $ ::taps his beacon:: +Zinthys+ I can't locate his lifesigns, I'm telling you! He's either hidden, or he's not here!
VAdm Sankoh
: % ::rolls to the side and attacks the incoming group of four::
Lieutenant FJ: %::falls into formation...::
MajorAZinthys: $::Hurries out past the melee and moves through the corridors with Alpha Squad::
MCptAdamDrake: $ ::watches his team roll a plasma explosive down into a throng of entrenched Romulans, blowing them all to smithereens:: That had to hurt.
: $+Drake+ If he's not here, we're all dead, so we've gotta find him.
Lt TKirr: % ::sets fire to full spread, dodging fire from a distance::
MCptAdamDrake: $ +Zinthys+ Aye.
Lieutenant FJ
: %::follows in suit letting a heap of phaser fire go at one of the Romulan ships::
MCptAdamDrake: $ Let's move! ::rounds a corner and takes out some more Romulans::
VAdm Sankoh
: % ::slams his craft forward and draws out two of the fighters::
Lt TKirr: % ::reinforces shields and enters bandit swarm::
MajorAZinthys: $+Alpha+ Find a way down into a basement of some sort.
MCptAdamDrake: $ ::continues looking at his beacon:: If you see him on sensors, feel free to let me know!
Lieutenant FJ
: %::cuts left drawing one of the bandits in persuit::
Lt TKirr: % ::pushes her speed to maxium and chases a bandit::
MCptAdamDrake: $ ::slams his rifle into a door panel and walks in:: Nothing!
VAdm Sankoh

MajorAZinthys: $::Races around to a perimeter corridor and hears a cry of triumph go up::
MajorAZinthys: $::Hurries over::
Lt TKirr: % ::destroys bandit in a flurry of fire, then slows and pivots as a bandit begins pounding on her aft shields::
MCptAdamDrake: $ ::moves down the corridor, the light from his rifle illuminating what's up ahead:: Increased power to sensors, if you see an energy field, then we'll need to deactivate it.
Lieutenant FJ
: %:: swing up behind the bandit and locks on Phasers, shooting it out of the sky::
Lt TKirr: % +Phantoms+ Sehlat, bandit on my tail!
MajorAZinthys: $Good Marine> I've found something! It looks like a way down.
VAdm Sankoh: % ::comes back about and finishes that one off just in time to take fire from the other::
Lt TKirr: % ::swerves around::
VAdm Sankoh: % +Sehlet+ On my way!
MajorAZinthys: $Well, open it up!
Lieutenant FJ: %::moves to intercept the bandit::
MajorAZinthys: $GM> I can't. IT's locked somehow.
MCptAdamDrake: $ Jeddin> Captain, I've got an energy field of unknown origin about 500 meters from our current location. Zinthys is on his way in, with Alpha Squad.
VAdm Sankoh
: % ::Breaks off from his target and goes after T'Kirr's::
Lt TKirr: % ::evades, throwing shields to aft::
MajorAZinthys: $+Drake+ Echo Squad! Report to sector 005 now.
Lt TKirr: % ::mumbles:: He does NOT like me... must smell my blood...
MCptAdamDrake: $ +Zinthys+ Drake to Zinthys, my squad is on our way to your location, an energy field is located just beyond that door!
: $ ::sprints down the hallway which is devoid of all Romulan activities::
Lieutenant FJ
: %::sees the Sehlat approaching quickly from the front:: hmm tricky shot
Lt TKirr: % ::takes a particularly direct hit, sparks flying about her cockpit::
VAdm Sankoh: % ::gets behind the one on T'Kirr's tail and lets him have it::
MajorAZinthys: $::Gets onto the floor and starts playing with the lock circutry::
MajorAZinthys: $::Closes his eyes in concentration::
Lieutenant FJ: %::as 8-ball hits him from behind, fires hitting the bandit in the front for good measure::
Lt TKirr: % ::struggles to maneuver as her engines slow, out of power to divert::
MCptAdamDrake: $ ::Sees Zinthys:: We're here, Major.
: $::The electronic lock sparks and the door opens down::
MajorAZinthys: $::Stands and cracks his neck:: Let's do this.
MCptAdamDrake: $ And now, for the energy field.
Lieutenant FJ

MajorAZinthys: $Alpha Squad, you're in first
Lt TKirr: % ::moves about to flank FJ while she charges::

Lt TKirr: % Are you all right, Admiral?
VAdm Sankoh: % The morale of the story is that any landing you can walk away from is a good one. And I'm walking away from this on my own.
