(21:16:19) CO_Capt_Harper: :: at the helm, fighting to maintain control after the sudden change in flight environment ::
(21:16:56) MED_Ens_Morsby: ::drinking coffee in the lounge, looking through the crew medical reports::
(21:17:28) XO_Cdr_Vallero: :: in the center seat, helping to captain as Harper's rather busy at the helm, attempting not to wallow in his recent failure and pay attention to the decisions ahead ::
(21:18:26) CSO_LCdr_Wright: *Sharks* Sharks, you are go for immediate launch.
(21:18:45) TAC_1LT_Randen: :: Standing on the transporter pad in full tactical gear sporting a type 3 phaser rifle in his hands and a type 2 hand phaser as back up on his hip. Waiting for the action to start. ::
(21:18:49) CO_Capt_Harper: :: gets control and maintains stable flight for the Mustang launch ::
(21:19:19) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: ::Is almost communing with Atlantis, willing her to hold it together, that the planet is nothing she can't handle.::
(21:19:58) NAV_2Lt_Suzuki: :: hears the order to launch and looks to Sehlat ::
(21:21:30) SCI_Lt_TLira: :: lifts the fighter above the deck and pilots it towards the hangar doors :: *CSO* Copy, sir. *Sharks* Begin targeting the base's defensive systems and providing cover for the Marines.
(21:22:08) CO_Capt_Harper: :: looks over to Lexy :: CSO: Let me know as soon as all Marines and Sharks are away.
(21:23:46) NAV_2Lt_Suzuki: :: excited about atmospheric flight, launches out from the fighter bay when her turn comes up and peels down toward the target with the others ::
(21:24:14) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: appears on the surface of the rogue planet, his marines all around him as they immediately secure the area. Wolfe looks around, watching the scans on his HUD and finds the location where they will need to get into the compound, and points :: @All@ This way. :: Wolfe begins walking, the team following. ::
(21:24:40) CSO_LCdr_Wright: CO: Sharks away. Marines ... away.
(21:24:57) SCI_Lt_TLira: :: scans for a suitable target to begin her attack ::
(21:25:11) CO_Capt_Harper: All: Engaging warp drive!
(21:25:34) CO_Capt_Harper: :: hits warp one to get out of here ::
(21:25:57) CO_Capt_Harper: ACTION: Atlantis goes to warp in the atmosphere, causing somewhat of a jolt.
(21:27:24) TAC_1LT_Randen: :: Is beamed down with his fellow Marines as he follows Wolfe's lead. His non-visble weapons the type 1 phaser in one boot and the knife in the other a constant reminder that they are there is the minor discomfort to his ankles. :: @All@ Go Go Go!
(21:27:30) XO_Cdr_Vallero: :: hangs on in preparation, and was still surprised at how jarring the transition is ::
(21:28:43) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: ::His eyes dash over the telemetry of the shield and hull integrity.:: Self: You can do this, my girl. ::Holding on tight.::
(21:28:51) SEC_1Lt_Kuari: @ :: with Wolfe, Randen and the rest of the team, focusing in on their destination and keeps her senses on high alert ::
(21:29:04) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: rode out the jolt with the same grim expression she's had since the pacifist option failed ::
(21:29:25) CO_Capt_Harper: ACTION> Seconds later, we exit warp high above the planet. The two stealth ships from earlier converge on our position.
(21:30:25) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: looks behind him as he walks and spots Kuari and Randen in his peripheral vision - not that his HUD didn't have the info for him already... it's just nice to get a visual on his most trusted officers. He gestures forward :: @All@ One klick. Remind me to thank Chief for getting us close.
(21:30:30) CO_Capt_Harper: XO: Assume Tactical, Commander. Target to disable only.
(21:31:18) XO_Cdr_Vallero: CO: Aye. :: jumps up and moves to Tactical, relieving the rather relieved-looking crewman ::
(21:32:01) TAC_1LT_Randen: @Wolfe:@ I'll note it in my log. :: Marches with Wolfe and Kuari. ::
(21:32:51) CO_Capt_Harper: ACTION> Defense cannons from the facility begin firing, both at the Sharks and the Marines.
(21:32:52) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: chuckles a bit at the thought of that actually being logged - and then realizes that it will be. Within a moment he is back to business and keeps pushing forward. ::
(21:33:50) TAC_1LT_Randen: @All@ Take cover! :: Finds the nearest cover to get behind to get his bearings. ::
(21:33:57) SCI_Lt_TLira: :: starts targeting the cannons and opens fire, dodging their fire as she tries to fly closer for a better lock ::
(21:34:28) CO_Capt_Harper: ACTION> The two stealth ships converge on us and begin firing, with suprisingly powerful weaponry for their size.
(21:36:35) XO_Cdr_Vallero: :: begins firing phasers at the stealth ships as they pass, attempting to work with Harper's maneuvers to get the best shots, and he can't help but feel the similarity to old times in the Academy ::
(21:36:43) NAV_2Lt_Suzuki: :: takes an evasive pattern, skating past the cannon fire and making a few precision strikes of her own ::
(21:36:47) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: watches the cannons from a relatively safe space around a conveniently placed cliff, calculating a moment. ::
(21:37:42) CO_Capt_Harper: ACTION> The smaller ships are able to outmaneuver us, and their weapons start to weaken our shields. Injuries start arriving in sickbay.
(21:37:43) SEC_1Lt_Kuari: @ :: managed to stay with Wolfe as she took cover, watching around the ridge at the cannons ::
(21:38:58) NAV_2Lt_Suzuki: :: notes the marines' position and switches her focus to the nearby cannons, trying to give them room to maneuver ::
(21:39:32) CO_Capt_Harper: :: comes about on one of them to focus their attacks, managing to get in behind it for a few moments :: XO: There!
(21:40:19) XO_Cdr_Vallero: :: takes advantage of the perfect angle and launches several quantum torpedoes and follows it up with phaser fire ::
(21:40:46) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: *CAG* Atlantis, Wolfe. I'm sure you're aware but we've found the first defense perimeter. They've got - :: stops to count :: - eight cannons. We could use a bit of air support.
(21:41:51) CO_Capt_Harper: ACTION> While these ships are fast and have more powerful weapons than expected, their defense is not as strong, and the first target's shields weaken considerably.
(21:43:12) NAV_2Lt_Suzuki: :: destroys the two cannons closest to the Marine's positions with satisfying explosions, but is forced to evade when the other cannons turn on her ::
(21:44:10) SCI_Lt_TLira: :: dodges return fire from her target of choice and launches a microtorpedo at it, destroying the cannon neatly. She takes a brief moment to check on the status of the others and is pleased with the results of that check. ::
(21:44:26) CO_Capt_Harper: :: frowns as the other ship gets in behind them, and pulls up sharply, the inertial dampeners straining to compensate ::
(21:45:06) XO_Cdr_Vallero: CO: That was effective. :: takes shots as he can as Atlantis evades ::
(21:45:27) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: watches the three cannons turn to fire with great pleasure :: *Sharks* Tango Yankee, my friends. Nice to have a clear path.
(21:45:55) CO_Capt_Harper: ACTION> The second stealth ship lands a considerable hit to our rear shields while in pursuit.
(21:46:23) CO_Capt_Harper: XO: These things are hard to evade, aft quantums!
(21:46:43) SCI_Lt_TLira: *CTO* It is certainly... nice to provide that path. :: focuses her fire on another cannon, fully intending to turn it to dust as with the other ::
(21:47:09) XO_Cdr_Vallero: :: takes a moment's distraction to read their shield situation before getting a lock and launching aft torpedoes at the tailing ship ::
(21:47:30) XO_Cdr_Vallero: CO: Aft shields, sixty percent!
(21:47:31) TAC_1LT_Randen: :: Grins as he watches the cannons burn. It was time to move on. :: @All@ Go Go Go!
(21:47:45) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: is somewhat surprised at such a casual bit of repartee from the dour Wolfe, but files it for later ::
(21:47:51) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: adjusts his approach path to stay clear of the still currently-live cannons, and gestures to continue :: @Away Team@ Adjust a bit, but let's move.
(21:48:34) SEC_1Lt_Kuari: @ :: falls in directly behind Wolfe, moving swiftly ::
(21:48:54) CO_Capt_Harper: XO: Understood, maybe this will work. :: flip-turns Atlantis on her pitch axis to face the attacker ::
(21:48:54) TAC_1LT_Randen: @CTO@ Acknowledged. :: Follows the path the Major sent to his HUD. ::
(21:49:16) MED_Ens_Morsby: ::as the battle ensues, Morsby sips his coffee::
(21:49:25) NAV_2Lt_Suzuki: :: is pleased by Wolfe's comm, but says nothing... still drawing cannon fire, does a bit of fancy flying to open up a path for the other Sharks ::
(21:49:32) CO_Capt_Harper: :: Atlantis, not being a Mustang, is a bit slower in the maneuver, and the IDs groan some more, but it works ::
(21:51:24) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: catches his first glimpse of the compound itself in the distance :: @AT@ Half a klick. We got this. :: elbows Randen in a rough but almost friendly-seeming way ::
(21:53:25) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: takes a few more steps moving toward the compound and starts seeing readouts of the layout inside. He turns to Kuari :: @SEC@ Are you getting this?
(21:53:53) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: :: looks over at Randen as well to see if he gets confirmation ::
(21:54:31) XO_Cdr_Vallero: :: raises his eyebrows at this new unexpected angle and takes advantage, launching as much as he can while the moment lasts ::
(21:55:27) SEC_1Lt_Kuari: @ *CTO* Yes, sir.
(21:55:28) CO_Capt_Harper: ACTION> The pursusing ship, much to the surprise of its crew, takes quite a beating from that volley. However, the ship we were originally chasing turns and lights up our ventral shields.
(21:56:04) CO_Capt_Harper: ACTION> Injuries start flooding into sickbay as consoles explode all over the ship, as they tend to.
(21:56:24) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: trying so hard to not think about the last time they were in a battle and everyone almost died, but failing ::
(21:56:41) XO_Cdr_Vallero: :: takes a moment to grip his console in order to remain at his station as Atlantis shudders ::
(21:57:39) XO_Cdr_Vallero: CO: Ventral shields, sixty-five percent!
(21:57:41) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: ::Watches on at the events unfolding, with an unusual silence.::
(21:58:05) CO_Capt_Harper: XO: These things... :: swears elaborately in Vietnamese ::
(21:58:12) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: @AT@ Let's go, team! Just a bit farther and we'll all be within transport range. Get into position and stand by. :: finds the edge of the distance within which everyone needs to be and ushers them in ::
(21:58:25) SCI_Lt_TLira: :: dusts her target and goes to find another one, but a quick check shows that the Sharks have dealt with the other cannons :: *Sharks* Cannons are destroyed, check for other external defenses.
(21:59:19) NAV_2Lt_Suzuki: :: now that nothing is shooting at her, breaks her evasion and circles back to the installation, looking for targets ::
(21:59:33) CO_Capt_Harper: :: engages the warp drive for half a second, much to Atlantis's protest at the quick start and stop, then turns quickly so that both targets are ahead :: XO: Now!
(22:01:29) XO_Cdr_Vallero: :: takes advantage of the frontal attack and cycles through all weapons as they charge and are loaded, unleashing Atlantis' considerabe armament on both enemy vessels ::
(22:02:34) CO_Capt_Harper: ACTION> There's no outmaneuvering the full firepower of a Sovereign class, and one of the ships completely loses shields while the other is greatly weakened.
(22:02:37) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: @ :: waits for the last AT member to get within range, then steps to the middle of the group and makes sure everyone's personal transporters are synced. :: *AT* Energizing. :: hits the PADD on his forearm and begins the transporters ::
(22:02:44) CO_Capt_Harper: XO: Target engines and weapons on that ship and disable them.
(22:04:12) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: CO: I could have used a pilot like you, many years ago. ::Chuckles.::
(22:04:23) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: @ :: and his team appear inside the compound, in an empty container room just inside the structure. Immediately, Wolfe feels a difference in the pressure, from the protection of his suit against the crushing hydrogen to a normal Class-M-style atmosphere. ::
(22:04:43) XO_Cdr_Vallero: CO: Aye. :: deftly taps over the console, the speed of the computer quickly locking onto engines of both ships and fires short bursts of the phasers at one and then the other vessel ::
(22:05:10) CO_Capt_Harper: ENG: Thank you, I think. How is Atlantis?
(22:05:12) NAV_2Lt_Suzuki: :: rejoins the rest of the wing, still looking for targets ::
(22:05:53) CO_Capt_Harper: ACTION> The shieldless ship is disabled, but the other one is not deterred and presses its attack.
(22:06:24) SEC_1Lt_Kuari: @ :: materializes inside the compound in the empty room, using her HUD to assess their surroundings ::
(22:06:29) CO_Capt_Harper: ACTION> All external defenses at the facilty have been destroyed.
(22:08:01) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: CO: She bears no ill will toward you, Captain. And she hasn't had the chance to be fully broken in, since she was fully refurbished. So she has much more to give. ::Pats the console, and smiles.::
(22:08:09) TAC_1LT_Randen: @ :: Does a quick check to make sure he's all in one piece and checks out the room their in, reading his HUD. ::
(22:08:49) XO_Cdr_Vallero: :: turns his attention from the disabled ship, concentrating on dropping their attacker's shields enough to hit their weapons array ::
(22:09:16) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: @ :: looks at his HUD and confirms it's a balmy 20.45% O2 to 72% N atmosphere. Well, balmy except that it's 7 C. But otherwise balmy. Oh, and there's no one in the storage room, which, as he looks around, turns out to be huge. ::
(22:09:54) CO_Capt_Harper: ACTION> Lifesigns start to amass outside the storage room, however...
(22:10:22) SCI_Lt_TLira: :: runs a final check for external defenses and finds nothing :: *Sharks* Our mission down here is complete. Return to space to assist the Atlantis.
(22:11:20) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: CO: I am certain she will let us know, when she is displeased.
(22:11:37) CO_Capt_Harper: ENG: Good to know, since I may have a bit more to ask of her before this is all over.
(22:11:55) CO_Capt_Harper: :: comes about hard to track the attacking ship, whose shields are almost gone ::
(22:12:22) NAV_2Lt_Suzuki: :: hears the order and corrects course for space, falling into formation and following Sehlat back to Atlantis ::
(22:13:37) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: @ :: hears a chirping and turns to find the nearest door. It's to the west, and it's becoming slightly crowded on the other side of the door. He goes around several large stacks of crates for a better look :: *AT* The welcoming committee is here. Hope they brought crumpets. Kuari, have you ever had crumpets? Oh, and get ready for whatever is about to come through that door.
(22:13:54) XO_Cdr_Vallero: :: fires half-charged phasers against the enemy's shields, attempting to bleed them enough to get a torpedo through to his lock ::
(22:14:43) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: her grim expression is marred by an encroaching giggle at Wolfe's discussion on crumpets, but she schools it quickly when the think about the firefight that's about to begin ::
(22:15:04) ENG_LtJG_Ilaihr: CO: Of that, I most believe. ::Behind his cryptic words there is actual engineering occurring; he simply cannot help himself.::
(22:15:09) SCI_Lt_TLira: :: gets into space and notes that the Atlantis is facing another ship, so guns it straight for the other ship, hoping that it wouldn't see the tiny fighter headed for it as anything but a nuisance ::
(22:15:30) SEC_1Lt_Kuari: @ :: with the room as bare as it is, decides against attempting to find cover and rushes to one side of the door instead, crouching down in preparation ::
(22:15:32) CO_Capt_Harper: :: rotates Atlantis along her yaw axis while still turning to chase the target, "sliding" through space ::
(22:16:16) SEC_1Lt_Kuari: @ *AT* Uh...crumpets? I don't think so, sir.
(22:16:17) CO_Capt_Harper: ACTION> The door opens, and several flash grenades storm into the room.
(22:17:40) XO_Cdr_Vallero: :: makes good use of Atlantis' rotation and gets some good shots out from better charged phasers, then fires a few quantum torpedoes at his target ::
(22:18:43) SCI_Lt_TLira: :: starts aiming for the enemy ship's weapons emplacements :: *Sharks* Target weapons and engines on the enemy vessel.
(22:19:12) SEC_1Lt_Kuari: :: is thankful for her helmet's active protection similar to a welding mask's light dampening effect, but since she can't see while it's working, reads her HUD to pick out a target once she can see ::
(22:19:53) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: @ :: finds a really nice hiding space. Really nice. There's a small hole in the boxes between him and the door, big enough to place his phaser and scope, and still be well covered. He positions himself at the ready. :: *AT* Oh, you must try them. Next time we're on Earth, a few of you will have to join me at my dear mother's house for some crumpets. :: hears commotion on the other side of the door, and his HUD says there are
(22:19:54) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: @*AT*: Oh, come on. Did you really think that would surprise us? :: waits to fire until he has a clear shot :: *AT* Do not fire until you can be effective. Kuari, if you can see the doors, give others firing solutions.
(22:20:14) CO_Capt_Harper: ACTION> The enemy ship's shields almost wink out with the volley from Atlantis, but we are forced to stop our turn as the enemy zips behidn us.
(22:20:53) NAV_2Lt_Suzuki: :: banks hard left as the wing breaks formation, curving under the belly of the enemy ship to come up on the far side as it maneuvers behind Atlantis ::
(22:23:13) CO_Capt_Harper: ACTION> The flash grenades are followed by a few actual grenades.
(22:23:17) SCI_Lt_TLira: :: flips the fighter on its x-axis and opens up the throttle, continuing to harry the enemy ship ::
(22:24:22) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: @ :: does not recoil at the grenades, but gives a huge smile. :: *AT* Now THAT'S more like it! Let the fun begin!
(22:25:28) SEC_1Lt_Kuari: @ :: watches as the grenades fly past her and abandons her position, but isn't fast enough and the explosion throws her into the wall near the doorway ::
(22:28:38) TAC_1LT_Randen: @ :: Takes cover as he watches the grenades, not surprised in the least by the old tactic. :: *CTO* I'll have to take you up on that offer sometime.
(22:29:27) CO_Capt_Harper: ACTION> The enemy ship's shields finally give out.
(22:29:45) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: @ :: watches as the force of the explosion hurls Kuari into the smokenear the door, watching her marker on his HUD as it stops at the wall, and tries to calculate a way to get to her ::
(22:30:08) NAV_2Lt_Suzuki: :: breaks off from firing at the shield generator :: *Sehlat* Disable weapons?
(22:30:38) CO_Capt_Harper: :: sees the Sharks have joined them ::
(22:30:42) SCI_Lt_TLira: *Sharks* Disable weapons and engines, yes.
(22:31:00) XO_Cdr_Vallero: :: waits for Atlantis to maneuver so he can get a clear shot ::
(22:31:07) NAV_2Lt_Suzuki: :: fires on the enemy ship's phaser banks ::
(22:31:15) CO_Capt_Harper: :: comes about on the shieldless ship, who is still quite maneuverable ::
(22:32:22) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: @ :: has a whole new desire to raise the level on his phaser and screw the attempt to let anyone live :: *TAC* Randen, can you get to her?
(22:33:43) XO_Cdr_Vallero: :: adds the power of Atlantis' phaser fire to that of the Sharks, attempting to disable and not destroy ::
(22:34:08) CO_Capt_Harper: ACTION> The other ship's engines give out along with its weapons, and it continues to coast in the direction it was heading.
(22:34:35) NAV_2Lt_Suzuki: :: breaks off firing and waits for orders ::
(22:34:50) XO_Cdr_Vallero: :: lets out a breath of victory :: CO: Targets disabled!
(22:34:58) CO_Capt_Harper: XO: Nice shooting, Commander.
(22:35:17) CO_Capt_Harper: CSO: Setting a course for the station. Have the Sharks escort and stand by, then hail the station.
(22:35:25) XO_Cdr_Vallero: :: grins, finally getting a win doing more for his mood than he was expecting ::
(22:35:30) SCI_Lt_TLira: :: veers away and stops firing, sliding into a holding position near the Atlantis and waiting ::
(22:36:00) CO_Capt_Harper: :: changes their orbit to an intercept with the station ::
(22:36:10) CSO_LCdr_Wright: *Sharks* Sharks, Atlantis is making for the station. Orders are to escort and stand by.
(22:36:53) NAV_2Lt_Suzuki: :: jumps past the disabled ship, hurrying to catch up with Atlantis to enter escort formation ::
(22:37:02) TAC_1LT_Randen: @ :: Looks at Kuari. :: *CTO* I believe so. :: Moves toward her at a crouch. Grabbing her by the back of the suit, dragging her behind cover. Looking her over with the HUD's scanners. ::
(22:37:27) CSO_LCdr_Wright: CO: How shall I identify when I hail, Captain?
(22:37:32) SCI_Lt_TLira: *Atlantis* Atlantis, Sehlat. Acknowledged. :: maintains her position just off the Atlantis' port side ::
(22:37:51) TAC_1LT_Randen: @ *SEC* Can you hear me?
(22:37:54) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: still listening to the plight of the Marines as well ::
(22:37:58) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: @AT: Lieutenant Kuari, can you hear me? Kuari!
(22:38:08) CO_Capt_Harper: ACTION> The station rises above the limb of the planet, as Atlantis approaches, flanked by her Mustangs.
(22:39:00) SEC_1Lt_Kuari: @ *AT* :: moans, and begins to shift from her new position next to Randen ::
(22:39:49) TAC_1LT_Randen: @ :: Smiles at the moans and movements from Kuari. :: *CTO* She's alive.
(22:40:17) CO_Capt_Harper: CSO: As the Enterprise. No need to give ourselves away, just yet. Demand their surrender, since they must know their ships are disabled.
(22:40:36) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: @*AT* Good. I'll cover you until she's ready to move.
(22:41:10) CO_Capt_Harper: XO: Get a status from the Marines as well.
(22:41:10) CSO_LCdr_Wright: *Station* Unidentified Station, this is the USS Enterprise. We demand your immediate surrender.
(22:42:10) TAC_1LT_Randen: @ *AT* Understood.
(22:42:59) CO_Capt_Harper: Station> :: doesn't answer ::
(22:43:15) CSO_LCdr_Wright: CO: No reply, Captain.
(22:43:54) TAC_1LT_Randen: @ :: Shakes Kuari a bit. :: *AT* Kuari, you up yet?
(22:44:31) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: @ :: has the door covered for anyone who wants to come in ::
(22:44:46) CO_Capt_Harper: ACTION> More grenades come in.
(22:45:18) SEC_1Lt_Kuari: @ :: moans some more ::
(22:45:21) CO_Capt_Harper: :: frowns ::
(22:45:57) XO_Cdr_Vallero: :: looks between Harper, Wright, and his console ::
(22:46:28) TAC_1LT_Randen: @ :: Feels around knowing he packed a couple grenades himself. But rarely gets the chance to use them. Grabs one and tosses it out the door. :: *AT* Fire in the hole.
(22:46:40) XO_Cdr_Vallero: *CTO* Atlantis to Away Team. What's your status?
(22:47:00) CSO_LCdr_Wright: CO: Shall I hail them again?
(22:47:24) CO_Capt_Harper: CSO: One more time. And give me the IR view on the main screen.
(22:48:44) CSO_LCdr_Wright: *Station* Unidentified station, this is the USS Enterprise. Acknowledge our demand for your surrender immediately, or we will be forced to act.
(22:49:00) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: puts the IR view on the main screen and looks up at it::
(22:49:36) CO_Capt_Harper: ACTION> The red glow of the station's heat continues to rise above the suddenly visible planet as we close in...
(22:49:40) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: @ *XO* Kuari was hit by a grenade. She's down but alive, Randen is helping her. Other than that, we're peachy.
(22:49:58) CO_Capt_Harper: :: winces as she hears about Kuari ::
(22:50:07) CSO_LCdr_Wright: :: worries for Kuari, her friend ::
(22:50:25) XO_Cdr_Vallero: *CTO* :: grimly :: And your mission status?
(22:51:15) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: @ *XO* We're in the compound. Storage bay with a single door into the rest of the facility. Lots of buddies waiting on the other side. Randen just threw a grenade so that should get them squaking.
(22:52:00) CO_Capt_Harper: ACTION> Boom goes the other side of the door.
(22:52:01) CTO_Maj_Wolfe: @ *AT* Prepare a formation to move out of the room. It's a corridor 1.5 meters wide. Looks like no one's coming in.
