OOC: I'm back! Participation may remain spotty - hopefully I'll be around long enough to smack Malcom for screwing up my plan by shooting so dang early. :P

BIC: Gren limps along with B'Looone and the robots, occasionally leaning on one of the less beat up maintenance droids. He keeps his eyes roaming, watching for enemy movement. He especially watches to see if any of the vehicles make a run for it and ensures his recoiless rifle is loaded.

As B'Looone lopes along with Gren and the 'bots, he can't help but survey the damage that they caused to the compound. He regards the breaches in the wall and the fallen towers. "I wonder how much trouble we're going to be in when OE gets the repair bill?"

Leo hesitates at the second shuttle. He considers for a second whether he should just stay here until the coast is clear, or go join the others. After all, these shuttle pilots may not be trustworthy enough to do as they said. In his mind, it sounded like a plausible idea that he should keep a close eye on them. However, after processing the possible outcomes of such a decision, he hoofs it across the tarmac to catch up to Mal.

"The important parts are still intact," Gren grunts dismissively. "And these defenses leave much to be desired. ... Hey security robot, are you programmed to use a recoilless rifle?"

If the robot can, Gren will hand over the rifle and remaining ammunition. He plans to return to the Dart in order to direct it's pod laser - i.e. tell it what to target and when to fire.

Deciding that the target probably doesn't have a A-S implant, Malcom leave his stunner set to stun and fires. The blast hits the Yazarian full in the chest. He staggers for a moment and then seems to shake it off (No A-S implant, direct hit, made STA check).

Simultaneous with Malcom's shot, the two combat robots hurl Tangler grenades at the trio. The grenades land directly on either side of the three pirates and envelope a 5x3 meter area in front of the door. The Dral on the right is caught completely off-guard and is wrapped up in the web. The Yazarian tries to duck out of the way but Malcom's stunner blast delayed him just enough that he too was caught. The Dral on the left, however, manages to dodge the grenades effects and comes at Malcom with his sonic sword.

Seeing the pirates charging toward Malcom and the combat robots, the security robots on the wings raise their laser rifles and each fire off two 10SEU shots, with each 'bot targeting one of the pirates. Both shots slam into the Dral on the right just as it is engulfed in the tangler threads. No screen flashes and it slumps over inside the threads. Malcom's stunner blast seems to have thrown the 'bot's aim off as well as both shots at the Yazarian miss. The first of the two shots hits the other dral. Again, there is no flash of an albedo screen and the dral grunts in agony as the 10 SEU blast rips through its body (50pts).

The Dral closes with Malcom and takes a swing with it's Sonic Sword. Despite all the odds, it connects and connects well and Malcom feels the agony of the sonic weapon ripping through his body (40pts of damage, 13 STA left)

Ting and the security bot continue through the garage into the machine shop again finding it clear.

The security bot replies to Gren's question, "Certainly, sir, I am perfectly capable of handling a recoilless rifle." Getting a positive response, Gren hands over the weapon and head into the Dart. The robot continues along with B'Loone and the other maintenance robots towards the garage.

Maria, B'Loone and Leo all hear a muffled "Tanglers" that sounded like Malcom on the far side of the warehouse. Realizing he's probably engaged more pirates, they all take off toward his position. However, it will be a couple of round before they get there.

Despite the pain, Malcom sees that the Dral is in even worse shape than he is. Abandoning all pretense at finesse or style, Malcom cuts loose with his martial arts training and catches the dral with a backhanded blow. The final hit is more than the Dral can handle and it crumbles to the ground.

Breathing heavy through the pain, Malcom surveys the scene. The two drals are down. The Yazarian is tangled up and cussing up a storm, and Malcom wants to just sit down and rest. The other robots approach, covering the Yazarian. Ting and his 'bot emerge from the back side of the maintenance building just as Maria comes out of the alleyway and Leo burst through the door behind Malcom.

"Caught one." Malcom says, gesturing toward the Yazarian in the webbing. He then sits down and starts rummaging through is pack for some biocort to apply first aid. (+10 points back up to 23 STA).

This post covered 3 turns so elapsed time is now 66 turns, Sebastian is 120m out and getting just a little winded :), Gren is now in the Dart and manning the Pod Laser and B'Loone is still on the tarmac just west of the RedBox shuttles. Maria and 'Ting are at the north end of the space between the buildings and Leo is right there with Malcom and the 5 robots.

Leo is breathing a bit heavily, looking at the down drals and the tangled yaz. Then he sees Malcolm. “Dang. You look like hell.” For a moment, Leo looks genuinely concerned.

OOC: I was going to say that at least he can't smack Mal until Mal does minor surgery on Gren, but now it looks like Mal will be first under Gren's sonic scalpel. :D

BIC: Malcom nods at Leo, "I've felt better." He fishes out a staydose and shoots up the dral at his feet. The more prisoners the better, he thinks. "Ting, take all the sec 'bots but Delta and secure the power plant. Leo, go with 'Ting," Mal grunts. "Hey, I saw at least one other yazarian go into the garage, and there's still a human around somewhere too, so watch yourselves."

"Hercules Alpha and Beta, wait 6 seconds, then doze 'em," Mal waves a hand at the entangled dral and yaz. "Then join Cerebus Delta at the south end of this alley at maximum speed."

Malcom retreats back into the warehouse, hobbling his way to the south door. He waves any of his teammates entering from the shuttle pad doors to the north end on the building.

Leo nods at Malcom. A couple of the tiny beads of sweat collected on his brow and ran down his cheek as he puffs out a last deep breath and jogs away to meet up with Ting.

Actually, the two drals are dead. Malcom rolled a knockout punch but just the basic damage alone was enough to put him exactly at 0 STA. So if you want to give him a staydose or stimdose and then use a biocort for first aid you can revive him. Otherwise he's a gonner. The Dral in the tanglers is definitely history (-34 STA).

That was my understanding, that the dral Malcom punched was only mostly dead. (Sorry, couldn't resist Inigo's influence :D ). Mal wants to shoot that one up with Staydose to preserve it until we have more time to perform surgery on it - and thus have a second live prisoner. That was my bad for mentioning the toasted dral in reference to having the combat bots gas him. They only need to gas the yaz to shut him up.

OOC: hey guys going to try to jump in....

"Garage is clear!" Ting clicks into his chrono. He leaves the 'bot at the door to keep any bad guys from ducking in their now that it has been cleared. Ting dahes to the control room.
"Headed to the control room!" he informs the others.

Leo rolls his eyes in exasperation as he has to run harder to catch up with Ting as he moves on to the control room. Leo, who has made a life style choice of embracing mediocrity, particularly when it comes to anything regarding physical fitness, is beginning to have second thoughts about eating so much junk food.

OOC: thanks BD. At least he hasn’t been mostly dead all day.

Gren uses the targeting camera to keep an eye on the various garage and factory doors, occasionally panning to view the ground to the north. "Computer, target any moving vehicle within range but hold fire until I give the command. Also, monitor all radio traffic intended for the base and alert me to any contact. If you can, use your Robot Management program and the passcodes in your databank to override the mining base computer and order the miner robots to shutdown. Lastly, open a vid-com channel to Red Box Hauler operations on New Pale or an orbiting station."

The computer acknowledges Gren's targeting instructions and responds that it is unable to establish a connection to the base computer. It finds the comm address for RedBox Haulers and establishes a connection. The image of a young human female appears on the screen:

"Thank you for calling RedBox Haulers, New Pales' cargo transportation specialists. Point to point, into orbit, or back down, we'll get your cargo where you need it. How may we help you?"

Maclom injects the dral with a staydose allowing them to revive it later. Hercules alpha holds a doze grenade in the Yazirian's face and sets it off. The Yaz tries to resist but the intense gas concentration is too strong and he slumps in the tangler threads.

Seeing the Yaz down, Malcom turns and heads back through the warehouse towards the Dart. As he emerges from the building on the other side, he sees Sebastian entering the compound.

Ting, Leo and three of the security bots enter the reactor control center to find it completely empty. Maria stays at the intersection of the open spaces between the buildings covering the exits while the other team checks out the reactor building.

B'Loone and his flock of 'bots enter the garage and from there go into the robot maintenance area also finding it clear. He comes out the other side of the building where he can see the reactor building, Maria and the other robots waiting for Ting and Leo to come out of the reactor building. On the inside of the building the garage connects to the tech shop on the south (that Ting passed through) and the robot shop on the north. The entire upper 2/3 of the building is the Mineral Refinery that processes the ore. It's fully automated and running making it quite hazardous to enter.

At this point you have control of buildings B, C and D. If there are any pirates left, they are inside building A.

OOC: Sorry if I wasn't clear. I intended for Mal to head to the south and join the lone security bot (Cerebus Delta) along with the two combat bots so he could lead them to enter Building A from the south, using the door by the medical section. If you don't mind, I'm going to continue as if that is what Malcom did.

BIC: Malcom leads his squad of robots around to the south of Building A, to the door by the medical section. "On my mark - Hercules Beta, lead the way through the door autopistol ready," he orders. "Cerebus delta, follow behind doze grenade ready. Hercules Alpha, you're next laser rifle ready." Mal brings up the rear, electrostunner set to stun and IR goggles firmly in place. "Making entry to Building A by south door," Mal announces into his chronocom. "Robots go!"

Once inside, he will halt Herc B just past the hallway to the first set of bedrooms. Herc A will be sent to clear the bedrooms while Cerebus Delta and Malcom will clear the Medical Section.

Okay. sorry about the mix up. Are you going to wait for Ting to clear the reactor control and come in from the other end of the building or just go in while he's still busy?
