Updated: Mar 18
Little has been seen or heard from the ISS Legacy since her captain began to grow distant from the rest of the battlefleet during the last 12 months. Rumours persist through a mix of increasing displeasure with the conduct of recent affairs, and a rigid fierce loyalty to the Empire. What will happen as the Legacy reappears is anybody's guess...
Elora@tortles#7288: "Mushy Snuggle butt you go there monitor the 'plosives for me. Toosh You sit there an be quiet." she places two stuffed bunny teddies on her console Elora@tortles#7288 sits in the captain's chair. Elora@tortles#7288 was at the front console the entire time Elora@tortles#7288 sits in the captain's chair. Zhyl'ia@thecastellan yawns and looks lazily around the bridge Elora@tortles#7288: "Mushy I do not want to hear you speak of Sir Reginald again." she sighs "Stop crying squeeze it's not fault he is violently racist." Elora@tortles#7288: "Mmm....What sorry?" she looks at the stuffed bunny "I was thinking about dem' legs. Mm." Elora@tortles#7288 Taps away at the console and sings a little tune "I'm a little tea pot short and stout here is my handle, here is my butt." accidentally loads up a torpedo and almost fires it "Whoops." Keelah@crystyll: (theme: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2ZXRzZi8Xuc) P'tok@fflat stands awkwardly at the turbolift doorway, waiting for something to clean up Elora@tortles#7288: "Oooh Mushy look at the fire power of that badonkadonk." she is refering to the torpedo she just loaded up Keelah@crystyll FX | The ISS Legacy - Imperial assault cruiser - is scouring the borders of the Empire, looking for opportunities to expand Elora@tortles#7288: "That's enough to take Flashies hide out. But don't tell him I told you that girl." is still speaking to her two stuff bunny teddy bears she has on her console Elora@tortles#7288 is at tactical Keliaya@anncarise struts out of the turbolift as its doors open and she looks to her left with a curious expression. "I didn't know there were Klingons on this ship." Katherine@falconecoose frowns slightly as she notices the Klingon, before she turns back to her console P'tok@fflat notices Katherine's frown and looks down quickly...he doesn't want a beating Keliaya@anncarise: "Not very talkative, are you?" P'tok@fflat looks at Keliaya and then looks at the ground Keliaya@anncarise: "A war-prize, perhaps? That would explain the shame..." Keelah@crystyll purses her lips, resting an elbow on her chair as slumps back in the seat, her chin rested on her hand as her fingertips drum idly against her cheek Elora@tortles#7288 Peers round and looks at Keliaya briefly then looks back to her rabbits "Ladies those a fine pair of legs round the corner. Mmmmm. You need to look at them." she pauses "Hey ladies what did I tell Elora@tortles#7288: ya about staring.....but seriously look at dem legs." Keliaya@anncarise e grins at Elora, "Someone' Keliaya@anncarise grins at Elora, "Someone has a good sense of taste." Elora@tortles#7288: "I just like legs." she then whispers so only her rabbits can hear "I bet they look good when they sploded." Keelah@crystyll glances to Zee, and nods towards the front left corner, "Keep an eye on that one, she... she ain't right..." Keliaya@anncarise steps deeper onto the bridge, towards its centre, "Captain Se'Lai. Another dull day of patrols?" Zhyl'ia@thecastellan swaps sides Keelah@crystyll looks back, "Kelly. And so far at least" she looks to the screen, "Makes you wonder if the Empire's already pushed as far as it can - there's nothing left out there to conquer..." Katherine@falconecoose raises her eyebrow slightly as she taps away on her console Keliaya@anncarise: "Let's hope not. Once that happens then they'll have more resources to divert interally." Keelah@crystyll glances up at the remark, rolling her eyes but holding her tongue Keliaya@anncarise moves surprisingly close to the captain, leaning a hand on her chair back, "And we both know that won't be good for us." Zhyl'ia@thecastellan puts a hand to her pistol and watches over carefully.. Katherine@falconecoose looks up from her console "Captain. 3 Craft on long range sensors." Keelah@crystyll slowly turns her gaze, "Well that doesn't tell us much. What about an ID?!" Elora@tortles#7288: "Ooo ladies looks like we might get some action. Move over Felica." she shifts one of her Bunnies out of the way slighty Katherine@falconecoose: "No ID on record Captain, they do not appear to be very large but sensors are failing to get a good scan at this range." Elora@tortles#7288: "Woooah Felicia sexopants watch you're language gurl or I won't use your badonkadonk today." she says to one of the rabbits Keelah@crystyll frowns, licking her lips at the possiblities still, "Helm; intercept course" Keelah@crystyll FX | NPC helms nods and the stars on screen streak as the ship veers and goes to warp Katherine@falconecoose: "Captain, they appear to be similar in design to the Alliance but are not giving off Alliance signals Katherine@falconecoose: " Keliaya@anncarise: "Alliance designs?" she looks to Katherine and moves to the console behind her. Keelah@crystyll looks back to Kat, "Good. Let me know what else you find as we close on them" Keelah@crystyll looks to Elora, "Tactical assessment" Elora@tortles#7288: "Mushy snugglebites and Felicia move outs the way I got works to be dooing." she taps away "Oh shiiiiit looks we got some winged birds they got some standard torpedos nothing me and my fine ass ladies Elora@tortles#7288: can't handle." Keliaya@anncarise looks to Kirstine as she approaches, "Can you pull up the readings of that ship?" Keelah@crystyll blinks, opening her mouth to comment but just shaking her head and looking back to the main screen Elora@tortles#7288: "Ladies I'll get yo badonkadonks set up and beam you down there. Toodles." her two bunny rabbits are suddenly beamed away Kirstine@hawkecosse#4702 nods lightly as her hands fly across the console as she brings up the scans of the ship Keelah@crystyll 's gaze drifts again to the crazy girl before looking to Zee, "And this is the race who subjugated the entire quadrant... doesn't it make you feel proud?" she scoffs Elora@tortles#7288: "Sticking a torpedo on some hot ass damesels, blow things up and watch people die." Keliaya@anncarise | Helm: "One minute to intercept." Elora@tortles#7288 Taps away as she sings that little tune Zhyl'ia@thecastellan rolls her eyes "Just don't ask me to babysit her" Keelah@crystyll hits her intercom panel Elora@tortles#7288: "Looks at an image of her stuffed toys on the torpedos. "LAdies you is looking helllllllla fine." Keliaya@anncarise leans over the console, observing the information closely before looking back to the captain, "That's no Alliance ship." Keelah@crystyll: <C> All hands; battlestations. For the glory of the Empire! Keelah@crystyll snaps around as she closes the comm, "Good, I grow weary for a fresh challenge anyway" Keliaya@anncarise: "But there are some similarities in design like the avian-based layout. If their systems are laid out similarly I might be able to hack in if they take our communications." Elora@tortles#7288: "Damsels, when you get back i'll treat yo to crumpets if you do a good job." Keelah@crystyll: "Tactical, raise shields and arm weapons and, and... stop playing with the damn teddy bears!" Keliaya@anncarise moves back to the centre of the bridge. Keelah@crystyll looks to Kelly, "CIC is your playground Kelly; go work your magic" Elora@tortles#7288: "They are not teddy bears. They are my fine ass damsels, experts with splosives." she raises the shield Keliaya@anncarise grins, "On my way. You won't be disappointed." Keliaya@anncarise | Helm: "Dropping out of warp." Keliaya@anncarise returns to the lift. Keelah@crystyll FX | The ships appear on screen looking somewhat like BoP's, though distinctly not Keelah@crystyll taps again and speaks on broadcast Keliaya@anncarise FX | They seem like warbirds with nacelles stuck onto the back and painted white. Keelah@crystyll: <C> Unidentified vessels; this is the ISS Legacy. You have encroached on the sovereign territory of the Terran Empire. Your vessels will be immediately surrendered; failure to comply will result in Keelah@crystyll: your decimation" Keliaya@anncarise FX | The three birds don't even respond to acknowledge, immediately veering towards the Legacy and opening fire. Blue phaser streaks emit from all three of them towards the viewscreen. Keelah@crystyll smirks, "Good, good..." she says quietly before looking up and speaking out, "Return fire! Show them no quarter!" Elora@tortles#7288: "Ready to fire torpedos in 10....9...." she presses the button and fires her two torpedos at one of the ships "Eh I got bored. Oh no our shields are down to 90% whatever shall we do." Says sarcsticaly Elora@tortles#7288 Also begins a firing phaser but that's she doesn't care as much about that they aren't explodey enough Keliaya@anncarise FX | The torpedos connect with one of the warbirds and it explodes instantly. The other two begin going evasive, one dodging the phasers while the other takes a hit, losing most of its shields. Elora@tortles#7288: "DAMMMMMMMMMMMMMN MY DAMSELS DID FINNNE ASS WORK!" Keelah@crystyll spins right in her chair, "If they want to try and dance, lock them down with a tractor beam. Then little miss fruitloops over there can play with her torpedoes" Katherine@falconecoose: "Captain, they are attempting to call for help with a distress call." Keelah@crystyll: "Jam the signal" Elora@tortles#7288: "Mmmmmmmmm. Well done ladies. Now go again!" she fires two more Badonkadonks (torpedos) Katherine@falconecoose nods lightly as she taps away on her console "Already on it Captain." Keelah@crystyll FX | The two... badonkadonks connect and the warbird flares up on screen as it's reduced to dust Elora@tortles#7288: "Well done ladies....Now lets if we use a tachyon pulse on the next one I'm sure we'll hit." she fires two more tropedos along with a tachyon pulse Keelah@crystyll FX | The last one contines to fly evasive dancing around every which way it can and making a beeline for a nearby asteroid field Katherine@falconecoose: "Captain it appears that they have bounced the signal or a relay some where and they are playing the message all across the sector." Keelah@crystyll scowls, "Find that relay!" Kirstine@hawkecosse#4702 taps away on her console "On it Captain." Keelah@crystyll: "Elora I swear to the stars if this doesn't work, then you can join your damned teddy bears starpped to the next torpedo!" Elora@tortles#7288: "No sweat buttercup my ladies are doing their job this is chiiiiiiilds play." Keelah@crystyll: "Well isn't that fortunate..." she mumbles under her breath, looking back to the main screen Anna Leveson-Scott@anncarise FX | The tachyon pulse drops the shields of the last warbird and the torpedoes fly towards it... Elora@tortles#7288: "SIR REGINALD DO NOT CONTACT ME RIGHT NOW I'M IN THE MIDDLE OF SPLODING SHIZ!" she randomly yells out it's clear she thinks some one is talking to her Anna Leveson-Scott@anncarise FX | ...when a Terran Excelsior-class cruiser drops out of warp right in between the warbird and the torpedos, its full shields taking the brunt of the attack. Anna Leveson-Scott@anncarise FX | The ship is Terran design, but it's not broadcasting Imperial Starfleet transponders... Elora@tortles#7288: "Oh shiiiiiiiiiiiiiit I did not see that coming Ladies get back here." Keelah@crystyll leans forward, grasping the arms of her chair, "What in the stars..." Katherine@falconecoose lets out a quiet "Oh fuck..." under her breath before she attempts to scan the new ship Keelah@crystyll looks right, "Get an ID on that ship!" Zhyl'ia@thecastellan smirks Katherine@falconecoose: "Attempting to Captain." Keelah@crystyll is clearly not amused by what seems to be a fellow TE Captain trying to steal her glory Keelah@crystyll: "Helm, bring us about for another pass" Elora@tortles#7288: "Hmmm we gon have to use stronger stuff. Load up the quantums ladies and activate the remote detonation explosives I placed in side you." Katherine@falconecoose continues her scans attempting to get more detailed scans "Captain she is dfinitely Terran in design, same style that was in service following the rebellion against the Alliance." Keelah@crystyll casts a sideways glance, clearly thinking something, "But no Imperial transponders?" Anna Leveson-Scott@anncarise FX | The Excelsior begins opening fire on the Legacy! Katherine@falconecoose shakes her head slightly "None that sensors are picking up Captain, she appears to be similar to a ship that went rogue over 30 years ago." Anna Leveson-Scott@anncarise FX | A Defiant-class warps in behind the Legacy and follows suit with a barrage of phaser cannons. Keelah@crystyll: "I knew it! Elora... it appears that Excelsior should be long dead, do be a dear and oblige" Elora@tortles#7288 Launches her quantum torpedos along with a phaser spread at the excelsior "The Damsels are on their way." Elora@tortles#7288: "Oh shiiiiit princess flufflybutt you sure? Looks like these ships are pounding us quite hard nothing me and ladies can't handle." Anna Leveson-Scott@anncarise FX | The Excelsior goes evasive, but one of the torpedoes hit and tear away a chunk of its hull. Its still operational and fires back on the Legacy from its aft banks... Anna Leveson-Scott@anncarise FX | And in the meantime two more ships drop out of warp, a Nova and an unidentified ship model... Keelah@crystyll snarls, "evasive manouvres, and pound that hulk into dust!" Anna Leveson-Scott@anncarise New Ship: https://i.imgur.com/2p2ZQq1l.jpg Elora@tortles#7288: "What an excellent idea Miss Fulffy butt." she now fires 4 quantums at once instead of two and does a full phaser spread Zhyl'ia@thecastellan leans against the console "Gee.. what an efficient Empire you have here.." Anna Leveson-Scott@anncarise FX | All four torpedoes miss, and the phasers hit the Nova and Excelsior and damage their shields. Katherine@falconecoose: "Captain, that new ship. It is scrambling our targetting systems." Keelah@crystyll snaps around to Zee, "These fools dare to turn our own weapons against! They deserve no less..." Anna Leveson-Scott@anncarise FX | The unidentified cruiser however seems unphased by the attack and it fires back... Anna Leveson-Scott@anncarise FX | The Nova fires at the Legacy as well, not doing that much but adding to the damage. Elora@tortles#7288: "Don't worry my ladies and I can aim switching to manual targetting." unleashes another volley of phasers as before and fires torpedos from front and aft shafts Keelah@crystyll slowly looks back, "How can that be..." she slams the intercom, "Kelly! Perhaps you'd care to explain how our targeting sensors are being jammed..." Elora@tortles#7288: "Sir Reginald reroute auxiliary power to our shields please. They cant take many more hits sooooon!" Anna Leveson-Scott@anncarise | Kelly: <C> "I'm working on it! This isn't tech I've seen before, but it's not infalliable!" Anna Leveson-Scott@anncarise FX | The Defiant swoops close for another attack run and unloads its cannons on the Legacy once again... Keelah@crystyll looks back to science corner, "I want to know all we can about that new ship. They must have some advanced tech if they canjam our targeting" Zhyl'ia@thecastellan folds her arms "Hope you weren't attached to this ship captain" Anna Leveson-Scott@anncarise | Kelly: <C> "There! That should solve the targetting problem." Keelah@crystyll braces as the ship rocks from the cannon fire and snarls, "And someone snap that damned escort in a tractor beam and tear it in half!" Elora@tortles#7288: "Dammmmmn Shawty they took out our shields. Rerouting power some power from life support because who nees that?" Zhyl'ia@thecastellan sighs "Why don't you stop using your targeting sensors? Just aim for where you sense minds" Keelah@crystyll looks to Zee with a quirked brow, "You have seen who is doing the aiming right, I'm not even sure she has a real sense on her own mind..." Anna Leveson-Scott@anncarise FX | The torpedoes hit now! The Defiant takes a few hits and veers off, seemingly crippled. The cruiser seems to be able to take the punishment though... Keelah@crystyll slowly smirks, "But perhaps we can put you to better use if you can sense them and help with targeting" Elora@tortles#7288 Aims specifically for the nova now firing a concentrated pattern at the ships shield and engines "SUCK IT!" Kirstine@hawkecosse#4702: "Captain, we have an incoming hail from the cruiser." Anna Leveson-Scott@anncarise FX | The Nova goes evasive but loses most of its shields, though its engines are saved. It fires back, disabling a phaser bank. Anna Leveson-Scott@anncarise FX | The Excelsior circles back, shields now full again. Elora@tortles#7288: "Oh you little bitch." she overloads one of the phaser banks and fires it at the nova for maximum damage Keelah@crystyll purses her lips, "...put it through" she steeples her fingertips , resting elbows on the armrests as she looks forward Kirstine@hawkecosse#4702 taps on her console as she answers the hail "Aye Aye Captain." Anna Leveson-Scott@anncarise FX | The Excelsior tractor repulses the Nova out of the way just in time and fires back, disabling the phaser bank that just fired! Anna Leveson-Scott@anncarise FX | A Terran female in an unfamiliar uniform appears on the screen... Anna Leveson-Scott@anncarise: "Well, well, well. Look who it is! The Terran Empire's found us at last." Keelah@crystyll quirks a brow before scowling, "Terran rebels, figures..." Anna Leveson-Scott@anncarise: "Rebels? REBELS?!" Elora@tortles#7288: "Oooo shit gurl they is smart." she doesn't pay attention to the conversation and fires phasers aimed at the nova once again along with some aft torpedos Anna Leveson-Scott@anncarise laughs, "You have no idea who we are, do you?" Zhyl'ia@thecastellan mutters "Oh boy, politics" Anna Leveson-Scott@anncarise: "We are the Empire as it should've been. We fought for your freedom. We conquered your lands!" Keelah@crystyll: "You are Terran. You are firing on a ship of the Empire. You are rebels" Anna Leveson-Scott@anncarise: "The Empire betrayed US! The Emperor turned his back on my father to cling on to what little he had after the Rebellions." Anna Leveson-Scott@anncarise FX | Several bridge consoles spark with damage. Anna Leveson-Scott@anncarise: "Ha! Look at you. You're weak. Your Empire is weak, and it's time for someone else to take charge." Anna Leveson-Scott@anncarise: "Or...it'll be time soon." Keelah@crystyll: "And that someone is you of course" Keelah@crystyll totally doesn't sound blatantly sarcastic. totally Anna Leveson-Scott@anncarise: "Me, and the rest of the Imperium." Zhyl'ia@thecastellan checks her small wrist screen as she looks over the talker Keelah@crystyll: "Is that why you have shown your face to surrender with dignity?" Elora@tortles#7288 Fires off another torpedo randomly "boom." Keelah@crystyll taps on her console and a message appears on Katherines screen Anna Leveson-Scott@anncarise FX | The aft torpedoes hit nothing but does seem to scare the nearby Defiant into full impulse. Anna Leveson-Scott@anncarise laughs, "Surrender? Maybe that's what you secretly want to do? A psychological slip?" Anna Leveson-Scott@anncarise grins, "Well, too bad. I'm not accepting surrenders today." Anna Leveson-Scott@anncarise: "I can't let you live and go scurrying back to your Emperor." Anna Leveson-Scott@anncarise: "I just came to gloat, as all good commanders like to do." Katherine@falconecoose starts tapping away on her console as she attempts to run a passive scan of the ship to avoid her scans being discovered Anna Leveson-Scott@anncarise smirks and fades from the viewscreen... Keelah@crystyll frowns, "Terrans..." Elora@tortles#7288: "Ladies I got two more badonkadonks ready for you." she says to her bunnies and fires two more tropedost aimed at the nova Zhyl'ia@thecastellan: "You work for them" Keelah@crystyll: "Thank you for the reminder..." she scoffs Anna Leveson-Scott@anncarise | Kelly: <C> "That comm connection was long enough for me to slip the virus through!" Keelah@crystyll grins and taps the comm panel, "Attagirl Kelly!" Anna Leveson-Scott@anncarise FX | The Nova is in the front arc of the Legacy and the torpedoes can't hit Elora@tortles#7288 Aims for anything behind instead then Anna Leveson-Scott@anncarise FX | The enemy ships are staying away from the rear arc, knowign torpedoes there are still active Anna Leveson-Scott@anncarise FX | Meanwhile the cruiser fires back with a salvo of torpedoes of its own... Elora@tortles#7288 Turns round "Ayo helm my main man help a gurl out and I don't know. MOVE THE GOD DAMN SHIP SO i CAN ACTUALLY FIRE OUR GOD DAMN TORPEDOS YOU NOOB." Keelah@crystyll: "Helm, pattern Se'Lai Six; NOW!" Anna Leveson-Scott@anncarise | Kelly: <C> "Just a few more moments and I should have a backdoor to control-" there is a loud noise and Kelly's feed cuts. Elora@tortles#7288 Fires phasess back overloading one of the beams so it deals extra damage Keelah@crystyll FX | The ship lurches around with emergency power to starboard thrusters to boost the turn speed and quickly bring the rear launchers to bear on the Nova Elora@tortles#7288 Would launch her badonkadonks when they turn Keelah@crystyll taps the comms again, "Kelly? Kelly report!" Keelah@crystyll: "Helm keep them on one side" she looks right, "Rotate auxiliary through facing shields as we move; keep all power diverted to facing only Keelah@crystyll: " Keliaya@anncarise FX | The lift doors open and Kelly steps onto the bridge. She hurries to the middle. Keelah@crystyll spins around to face her Elora@tortles#7288: "KEEP GOING LADIES." Unleashes a slavo of torpedoes onto the enemy vessels along with another phaser spread Keliaya@anncarise: "The CIC is gone. The virus should be taking effect soon and I'll be able to hack into their systems from here." Keelah@crystyll: "Good. Celebrate when it's over, we've got work to do" Keliaya@anncarise: "I'm on it." Keliaya@anncarise works on an engineering console. Keliaya@anncarise FX | Meanwhile the Nova takes severe hits and backs off with the Excelsior's covering fire. Keliaya@anncarise FX | Two more warbirds warp in, taking the place of the retreating Nova and Defiant. Keliaya@anncarise FX | One of them opens fire with its feeble phasers, doing little to no damage... Elora@tortles#7288: "I'm going to modulate the frequency of the torpedos see if any can go straight through their shields." that was the most normal sound thing she says and she modfies the topredos and lets loose Elora@tortles#7288: another barrage along with phaser fire to follow up Keliaya@anncarise FX | One of the warbirds go down. The other dives in for an attack run, firing orange, Terran-style phasers which rip a line across the Legacy's hull... Keliaya@anncarise FX | The bridge rocks violently. Consoles flicker and fizz and the main viewscreen goes out. Zhyl'ia@thecastellan watches the console next to her start to crackle with mild amusement Elora@tortles#7288: "WOOOOOOAH Dammmmn these bandits really don't give up do they. Keliaya@anncarise FX | The entire engineering station explodes and launches Kelly backwards. Elora@tortles#7288 Aims for the remaining war bird and fires and overloaded phaser beam at it as well as launching a couple of torpedos at the excelsior Keelah@crystyll jumps around and checks on Kelly as the console explodes behind her Kirstine@hawkecosse#4702 flinces slightly as she console next to her explodes as she continues to work, despite fragments from the console striking her Keliaya@anncarise is badly wounded and doesn't seem to be breathing, but still has a faint pulse. Keliaya@anncarise FX | The warbird loses its shields but the Excelsior manages to evade away from the rear arc and land a few more hits on the Legacy Elora@tortles#7288: "Ayo science ladies either you get a tractor beam on one their ships so I can unleash HELL on of them!" Zhyl'ia@thecastellan chuckles "Hey, the crazy ones the captain now" Keelah@crystyll: "I'm sorry but I need what you know..." she says softly, placing her fingertips across the side of Kelly's face and closing her eyes as she murmers, "Your mind belongs to me..." Keliaya@anncarise twitches as Keelah delves into her mind... Katherine@falconecoose is tapping away on her console as it crackles "What do you think I am trying to do you crazy Terran." Elora@tortles#7288: "HEY! Felicia Sexopants gets very offended by the word crazy. The correct phrasing is bat shit insane." she aims phasers at the warbird and the excelsior Keliaya@anncarise goes limp as Keelah finishes. Kirstine@hawkecosse#4702 continues tapping on her console as she attempts to get a tractor lock on the cloest target as she wipes blood out of her eys Keelah@crystyll slowly stands, a little dizzy as she processes the aftermath of the meld Keliaya@anncarise FX | The warbird gets tractored and the phasers tear off one of its wings, but the barrage from the enemy quickly disables the tractor beam. Elora@tortles#7288: "Helm Man bring our arc in range of that excelsior I've got some preseeeeeeents for it!" She laughs manicaly and fires two overloaded phaser beams at the excelsior Katherine@falconecoose takes a step back as she brings her arm up to shield her eyes as her console explodes, her arm taking the brunt of the fragments going towards her face before she moves to a new console Zhyl'ia@thecastellan does the sensible thing and takes a few steps away from the console Zhyl'ia@thecastellan: "At this rate you're not going to have a ship worth anything, which means no contract anymore" Keliaya@anncarise FX | The Excelsior takes a few hits and begins to retreat too... Elora@tortles#7288 Keeps up the pressure on the excelsior Elora@tortles#7288 Fires another phaser spread with one overloaded beam this time at it Keelah@crystyll looks to Zee, "You know something... you may be exactly right!" she grins, sounding way happier than she should at that as she moves to science corner Keelah@crystyll: "Ladies. I need you to kill the Legacy" Katherine@falconecoose glances over at the Captain "Any special way you would like us to do it Captain?" Keelah@crystyll: "Play dead; overload EPS conduits, in... these sections..." she points out on the display, "Then cut all power, vent warp plasma and let us drift" Keelah@crystyll: "That should make it look like they've taken our power grid offline" Kirstine@hawkecosse#4702 smiles lightly, as she nods at her sister as they get ready to play dead "Understood captain, ready on your command." Keelah@crystyll: "Do it" Katherine@falconecoose nods lightly as her and her sister start to overload systems throughout the ship Keelah@crystyll stands at her chair and hits the intercom, "All hands; we're going dark, prepare to welcome boarding parties" Keliaya@anncarise FX | Enemies stop firing as they detect the Legacy is disabled... Keelah@crystyll looks to Zee, "We in the mean time have a special mission" Zhyl'ia@thecastellan: "And what excatly would that be.." Elora@tortles#7288: "Ooo Sir reginald it's time to let me borrow your rifle." she pulls out a rifle from under the console "We got some special guests on board." Keelah@crystyll grins, "We are taking that ship. Kelly's virus pulled their command codes, so as they beam over to board the Legacy; we can beam there and take control of their bridge, trapping them here" Elora@tortles#7288 Checks she has all her grenades on her belt "Damsels, Princess Flufflybutt, Sir Reginald get to the safe point." she talks to herself how is she a commander? Zhyl'ia@thecastellan shakes her head and smirks, pulling out her rifle "You know.. this goes far against my contract" Keelah@crystyll: "Hey, your contract is to keep me alive right? Then you can come along and make sure these rebel scum don't void your contract if you want paying!" Zhyl'ia@thecastellan chuckles "Like they'll get past me" Keelah@crystyll looks around the bridge staff, "Arm up! Time to go claim a new trophy for the Emperor!" Katherine@falconecoose: "Captain, the cruisers shields are down and they are beaming over boarding parties." Elora@tortles#7288 Shoots just behind the helm to scare him "THAT'S FOR TAKING SO LONG TO MOVE THE GOD DAMN SHIP AROUND." Keelah@crystyll taps the console on her armrest, "Engaging emergency site to site transport..." Keliaya@anncarise | Helm: "Woah! Hey watch it! It's a big ship okay!" Kirstine@hawkecosse#4702: "Captain, I am still picking up multiple life signs on the cruiser but most of them seem to be beaming over." Elora@tortles#7288: "You pissed off the Damsels, they couldn't launch as many badonkadonks as they wanted to." she glares at the helm Keliaya@anncarise FX | The Legacy crew beams over to a bridge with physical control panels, and pink/purple tattooed aliens manning them. Keliaya@anncarise FX | The bridge crew of the enemy ship hasn't registered that the transport was from enemies yet... Keelah@crystyll doesn't think twice and immediately opens fire on the alien crew Zhyl'ia@thecastellan joins in for the hell of it Elora@tortles#7288 Throws a grenenade and opens fire Elora@tortles#7288: "AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHA" Katherine@falconecoose opens fire her self targeting the cloesest to her Keliaya@anncarise FX | The crew are massacred...one alien manages to grab a phaser from under his console though and aims it towards the boarding team... Zhyl'ia@thecastellan looks over and aims to mentally throw him across the room Keliaya@anncarise FX | She succeeds and the alien loses his grip as he is thrown! Kirstine@hawkecosse#4702 opens fire along with her sister, as her blood slowly runs down her body and uniform, tinting it red where the blood runs across it Keelah@crystyll takes aim and vaporizes the thrown alien just to be safe Elora@tortles#7288 Goes to find the tactical console Keliaya@anncarise FX | The alien tries to scramble away but is distintegrated... Zhyl'ia@thecastellan: "Huh.. I thought you lot would be tougher.." Elora@tortles#7288 She quickly beams over her 4 stuffed toys just to be safe Keelah@crystyll looks around with a sharp eye, "Clear! Secure all exits and find your stations" Zhyl'ia@thecastellan: "Mind if I go find any stragglers?" Elora@tortles#7288: "Welcome my friends!" she says to her stuffed toy collection Katherine@falconecoose places her sidearm on the console surface as she checks the science console Keliaya@anncarise | Helmsman: "We might want to raise our shields as soon as possible before they realize we're on their ship and try to beam people back..." Keelah@crystyll moves to the command station and quickly inputs the stolen command codes she learned through the meld with Kelly Keelah@crystyll: "Agreed. That should do it..." she grins, "We have the ship!" Elora@tortles#7288 Raises the shields "I gots my ladies and Sir Reginald lets unleash hell shawties." she fires a load of torpedos at the legacy Keliaya@anncarise FX | The crew find themselves in full control! Zhyl'ia@thecastellan: "I'll take that as a no then.." Elora@tortles#7288 She wastes no time Zhyl'ia@thecastellan shrugs and leans against the lift doorframe Keelah@crystyll: "Do the other ships have shields raised still?" Keelah@crystyll glances back to Zee, "We will need to clear them out. But I'm more concerned with holding this position until we have complete control first" Keliaya@anncarise FX | The viewscreen activates and shows the torpedoes ripping through the rear of the overloading Legacy, resulting in a series of spectacular explosions in the engineering section and ultimately - Keliaya@anncarise - an explosive and violent core breach. Elora@tortles#7288: "AHAHAHAH BURN BABY BURN!" Elora@tortles#7288 She watches happily "That. Was. Awesome." Katherine@falconecoose: "Captain, all the other ships have left the field, we the only one left." Elora@tortles#7288: "Naptime." she sits in the chair and closes her eyes Keelah@crystyll smirks, slipping into the alien command seat as she pokes around for internal comms Keelah@crystyll figures out the controls and opens shipwide comms, "Attention crew! This is Captain Keelah Se'Lai of the Terran Empire - your new Commanding Officer. We have control of your ship and your lives; + Keelah@crystyll: those who swear fealty may be given a chance to serve. Those who do not..." she glances back to Zee with a smirk, "Will not be so fortunate... make your choices" Zhyl'ia@thecastellan toys with her rifle, clearly rather bored again Keliaya@anncarise: <C> "This is Commander Warwick of the Imperium. In the absence of the Princess I have no choice but to surrender." Keelah@crystyll: "Helm; set a course for the Terran system. Time to show the Emperor our new trophy" Keliaya@anncarise: <C> "You may kill any of the aliens who still resist." Elora@tortles#7288 Snores away quietly in her chair Keelah@crystyll: <C> Thank you Commander, though I really did not require your consent to kill any dissidents. We are headed back to the heart of the Empire; I suggest you make use of the journey to present your Keelah@crystyll: loyalty to me and tell all about this 'Imperium' of yours" Keliaya@anncarise | Helm: "Aye captain. On route to Terra at cruising speed." Keliaya@anncarise | Warwick: <C> "I will do as you suggest, captain." Elora@tortles#7288 Yells out in her sleep "Mesiour sparks exlode them!" then goes back to snoring quietly Keelah@crystyll wanders off, looking curiously over one of the stunned aliens, then up to the science gals, "Maybe on these will make for interesting study. It would be nice to learn any weaknesses of the race" Kirstine@hawkecosse#4702 smiles lightly "I would take extreme pleasure in finding out any weakness this race may have." Keelah@crystyll nods, "Well we have a ship full of live specimens so knock yourselves out. I'm sure they must have /some/ kind of facilities here" Kirstine@hawkecosse#4702 turns to her console "I will see what I can find Captain on the ship plans." Keelah@crystyll wanders back to the centre, curiously looking over the physical interfaces as something catches her eye in the turbolift behind Zee, "Kelly...?" Keliaya@anncarise FX | There's nothing in the turbolift... Zhyl'ia@thecastellan puts a hand to her pistol and glances in Katherine@falconecoose glances over at the Captain quickly before she turns back to her console Keelah@crystyll shakes it off and settles back into her freshly claimed throne Elora@tortles#7288 Naps peacefully Zhyl'ia@thecastellan looks over to the Captain and draws her pistol just in case Keliaya@anncarise: Kelly steps up beside Keelah, smiling down at her, "Enjoying your new prize, captain?" Keelah@crystyll FX | A peaceful and productive trip home ensues with a large portion of the alien crew swearing fealty and many being executed Keelah@crystyll glances up to her right, confused, "Huh, wha...?" Keliaya@anncarise: smiles and perches on the arm of the chair, playfully draping a hand across Keelah's shoulder, "I see you put my work to good use..." Keelah@crystyll closes her eyes, murmuring quietly, "No, this is not logical. You can't be here..." Keliaya@anncarise: "Since when does logic explain everything?" Keliaya@anncarise: "So you're just going to give this prize over to your Terran masters? Why not keep it for yourself? Imagine what you can do..." Keelah@crystyll: "It's just an echo from the meld" she says, more trying to convince herself maybe... Keelah@crystyll shakes her head, "This is my ship now..." Kirstine@hawkecosse#4702 glances over at the Captain before she exchanges a look with Kat before turning back to her console Keliaya@anncarise: "Oh you've still got a lot to learn, my dear captain." Elora@tortles#7288 Wakes up a glances at the captain briefly then looks at her stuffed toys "Some people are just nuts." she whispers to them Keliaya@anncarise: smiles as she stands, her hand trailing across Keelah's back now as she circles around the chair. Zhyl'ia@thecastellan sighs and wanders over "Problem Cap?" Keliaya@anncarise: "I'll be sure to make the ship...presentable, then." Keelah@crystyll glances up to her right with a frown, shaking her head again; shuddering slightly as the preceived hand trails across her shoulder in passing Keelah@crystyll snaps back to Zee, "What? No, of course not!" Keliaya@anncarise: is nowhere to be seen after she snaps back to Zee... Zhyl'ia@thecastellan folds her arms "Try not to lie to a telepath.." Elora@tortles#7288: "Cucukoo." she nods to her stuffed toys Zhyl'ia@thecastellan is definitely not pouting.. Keelah@crystyll shakes her head, "Just a residual effect from a rushed meld with a weakened mind is all" Zhyl'ia@thecastellan: "Mhmmmm" Zhyl'ia@thecastellan is clearly unconvinced Keelah@crystyll ignores the look, "Anyway, we've got a whole new crew to break in. How about an extension on your contract to cover that?" Zhyl'ia@thecastellan: "What are you thinking?" Keelah@crystyll: "If you have a price, it will be met; simple as that" Zhyl'ia@thecastellan: "I meant what would you have me doing" Keelah@crystyll: "Disciplining the new crew; weeding out those liable to betrayal" Elora@tortles#7288: "Yesh we will have a tea party soon Reginald but only if you promise to stop being so violently racist." she stares at one of the toys Zhyl'ia@thecastellan: "A simple enough job" Keelah@crystyll: "Good" she nods Zhyl'ia@thecastellan: "But you are aware of what will happen if they beat your offer" Keelah@crystyll: "They won't" she says flatly Keelah@crystyll FX Timewarp & Epilogue | After returning to Sol with the newly captured battleship and news of the Imperium, the Emperor does indeed take personal notice of the new trophy Keelah@crystyll FX | So much so, that he orders it taken from Keelah and held for study, along with the alien crew Keelah@crystyll FX | A sour Keelah at losing her prize is 'rewarded' by the Emperor with a new command; some old refit Sentinel - the ISS Valley Forge... Keelah@crystyll: - END SCENE -
SUBMITTED: Stardate 94251.2 FILED BY: CAPT T'Keel Se'Lai SECURITY: Level 3 - Restricted
LOCATION: Imperial Border, Kelterre Sector
MISSION: Reinforce Imperial border & neutralize threats.
OUTCOME: New adversarial race encountered; alien battleship captured.
CAPT Se'Lai (ISS Legacy) CMDR Yalul LCDR Elora LCDR Yalul Mercenary Keliaya (KIA) Mercenary Zh'Zhavis Indentured Property P'Tok
NARRATIVE: By the Emperor's order; ISS Legacy was operating border patrol in the newly conquered region of the Kelterre sector. Predictably; resistance was met by a race previously not encountered by the Empire. Though their native vessels were weak and unremarkable next to the power of the Legacy; they were quickly reinforced with rebel Terran forces consisting of a small armada of Terran vessels previously (and inaccurately) recorded as lost. The combined armaments of the reinforcing Terran vessels provided a worthy challenge for the legacy, however in typical xeno fashion; they sought to further unbalance a flag of the Empire with the arrival of a battleship of previously unseen configuration. This vessel was herded and protected by the rebel Terran vessels as it provided their armada with cheap trickery to disable the Legacy's targeting and shield systems.
Suffice to say with such unbalanced odds; the Legacy to severe damage which prompted a communication from the leader of the opposing armada - another TERRAN. This one - identifying as Anna Leveson-Scott - claimed to represent the 'Imperium' and spoke outright against the Emperor in the name of her father, the context of which suggests an air of familiarity and personal regard to which a humble captain like myself is in no place to comment on.
Mercenary Keliaya had enacted a viral feedback loop during the extended comms and we were now in a position to retrieve the command codes to the battleship. A slight drawback to this was the loss of the CIC deeper within the Legacy forcing Keliaya to complete the operation from the bridge where she was later killed due to further damage. I however had the foresight to meld with the dying xeno and retrieve her knowledge for my own - including the successfully stolen command codes to the Imperium battleship.
With the Imperium vessels attempting to destroy the Legacy, I coined a devious plan to turn the tides and ordered a systematic overload of the Legacy's EPS manifolds in key areas followed a complete power drain and venting warp plasma. As the ship began to drift as a result of this, the Imperium vessels were successfully baited into halting their assault and attempting my predicted boarding attempt (a logical deduction based on the proportion of Terran vessels at their disposal indicating an unspoken desire to capture Terran vessels to bolster their own weaker fleet).
However as they dropped shields to board the Legacy, my command crew and I beamed onto the bridge of their battleship and promptly executed the xeno staff present. With the stolen command codes ready, it was almost too easy for me to take control of the Imperium battleship and turn it's weapons on the hulk of the Legacy - with the battleship's Commander on board. Having claimed command of their vessel in the name of the Emperor I informed the crew that they were now the property of the Terran Empire and gave them the standard rights and options to pledge loyalty. The second in command - another Terran by the name of Warwick - made the pledge and continued to provide system wide access to their library files while mercenary Zh'Zhavis worked through the crew to telepathically identify those whose loyalty could be faultered, and deal with them accordingly.
RECOMMENDATION: This Imperium battleship will make a fine new flag for my impending promotion to Commodore and upon our return to Imperial territory; a full analysis of this new subspecies will be provided to support the development of future conquests - which I will naturally assume control over from my new position. will be delivered immediately to Facility 3461 where it will be drydocked and stripped to provide all available intelligence on this new subspecies while CAPTAIN Se'Lai and her crew will transfer to the ISS Valley Forge and resume patrols on the Alliance side of the border.
