"ETA for Eintstein Station, five minutes captain," a young male navigator called out.
"Excellent. Open a comm channel with them ensign," the captain replied.
"aye aye captain," the young woman replied. On screen, a professional looking man in a port authority uniform appeared. The captain addressed the man with a cheerful tone. "Einstein station, this is captain Renault of the carrier, Gilded Gifthorse, requesting permission to dock at your colony."
"Captain Renault, your arrival is ahead of schedule. You are cleared to dock at bay 94.  Sending landing telemetry now...alright.  You're all set. Is there anything else we can assist you with," the man replied.
"Do you know where I could find several million dollars lying around," the captain joked, to which the port authority replied, "if I did, do you think I'd be working here?"
"I supposed not, though it was worth a shot. Have a nice day sir."
"And you as well." The comm channel cut off and the port authority disappeared.  "All hands, prepare for docking sequence," the captain ordered, to which the crew replied with a unanimous "Aye Aye sir!".
--------------------------------
Docking bay 72: United Planetary Federation private docks. 1800 hours
A loud click could be heard as the mech transportation container closed, concealing its special cargo. Inside was a rather dark looking mech that gave off a somewhat insidious air. In front of it, several soldiers stood at attention, as their commanding officer addressed them. "Alright gentlemen. Your assignment is simple. Guard this mech with your life. We'll be shipping it planetside soon, but until then, you are to treat it as your highest priority. I don't care what else happens, this mech is not to be approached by anyone with less than class A clearance, am I understood?"
"Yes sir," the soldiers replied.  "Good. Then carry on." The commanding officer walked off, and two of the soldiers turned to one another. "So Frank, isn't this the same model that the Black Knight used to pilot?"
"No, this is the more advanced model that replaced it. The higher ups believe there's a good chance he'll show up to try to take this one, so we've been assigned this babysittin job. Personally, I doubt he'll show up here. Why would he come to this particular station? Aside from the resource rich planet below, this station is as backwater as it gets."
"Regardless, we just have to make sure no one gets near it until it's time for it to ship out. We'd better get back to our posts before our CO finds us though."
------------------------
"---iel. CIEL.  Pay attention Ciel!"   Ciel jerked back to the present moment as her instructor dropped her own textbook onto the desk. "uh, Sorry bout that..." she replied sheepishly. Once again, she had drifted off without realizing it. "Ciel, explain to the class why Einstein station is neutral in the conflict between the United Planetary Federation and the Kurat Confederacy."
Ciel recited from memory, "in 2124, the UPF, the Confederacy, and the orbital colonies signed the treaty of Jupiter, granting the colonies substantial sovereignty on the condition of neutrality.  Should we become embroiled in the conflict, we would lose our neutrality status, and become fair game for either side."
"That is correct."
The bell rang, indicating the end of class.
 "That wraps up today's class.  Don't forget to turn in your assignments this Friday, as they are a significant portion of your grade." Ciel quickly packed her stuff and departed for her house.

As the commanding officer left his subordinates he passed what appeared to be a homeless man.
The man wore tattered black pants with several holes in the legs and an open hoodie which showed off his bandaged chest with a large bloodstain on the left side. The hood was pulled low and the sign next to him read:
'Injured in the war, spare some creds?'
The man's breathing was hindered a bit as he sat there looking quite out of it, as if he was just struggling to live long enough to get that medical procedure he needed to survive.
For now though it looked like he was surviving off of med packs with the change that was tossed in his cup.
The man's head was leaned down to the right and he was studying the guards, studying the upgrades to the mech they stole from him, trying to get a layout of the security in this area while still putting on a convincing act of pain.
The Black Knight was indeed planing to get back his mech, they had no right to force an Emergency Evacuation Launch during that battle and steal what he legally purchased.
Helios did return the military model he stole back to them, just that it was dropped into a military space station at speeds rivaling Halie's comet.

"You know sometimes this bloody waiting period is unbearable.  I know we're supposed to stay on station and help out for a year beforewe get deployed into active duty, but doing chores all this time just feels like sitting around doing nothing to me."

Tanr was in the common area of the station talking with a bunch of the cadets that he tended to hang around with in his spare time.  All he really wanted at this point was to get off this station and explore the universe, but to do that he had to wait for all the mech acquisition paperwork to get through the works, hence the one year waiting period between graduation and active duty.  Suddenly his wrist comm that was given to him by the intelligence division beeped, signifying that he had received a message back in his quarters.

"Ohp looks like that's my cue, see you later guys and try to stay out of trouble."

After giving them his usual overly perky smile, he headed off to his room.  Unfortunately he hadn't decorated his room at all the whole time he'd been there.  Hehadn't seen the point since he would be leaving as soon as he was assigned his active duty.  He sat down at his computer and brought up the message.

"Hello Agent Tanr,
My name is Bob, I cannot tell you which military I am part of, nor can I tell you my position within it.  However you can be assured that I mean no malice.  I looked over your class records and have decided that you would be the perfect candidate to aide me in my endeavor.  As such I have had a very special mech assigned to you, it is highly xperimental and in need of some in action adjustments, which is where you come in.  Your orders from me are to take charge of this mech and to report to me on weekly intervals of its performance specifications.  I will review your reports and give you modifications to be made until we can get this mech to fully operational status.  The mech should be arriving to the station very soon, when it does arrive the head of the station should contact you to give you the appropriate security clearance to gain access to it as well as to tell you of your 'official' posting."

The rest of the message contained contact codes for Bob, and a few genearl safety notes about the mech.  Tanr sat there for a moment letting it sink in, unconciously letting his hand slide to the controls that would sound-proof his room.  As soon as his hand activated these controls he started jumping around, bouncing off the walls out of joy.

"I can't believe it finally an active posting, and a highly classified one at that it would seem!"

Razzly wiped a grimy sleeve across her forehead, leaving an oil smudge there for all to see.  She was wearing a dirty mechanics jumpsuit with numerous oil and grease stains on it from all the work she did. Her blondish brown hair was tied back to keep it out of the way. At 19, she was a bit of a prodigy, working as a freelance mechanic whose specialty was mecha systems.  Her current project, a banged up long range support type, had been one of her favorite jobs.  The mech's owner, a pilot by the name of Jesse, was a crack shot and longtime friend of hers. The two of them had gone to the academy together, and it was rumored that Jesse would be admitted into an exclusive special ops team, though she often dismissed such rumors as "ridiculous." 
"Hey kid, hows my baby?"
Razzly closed the panel she was working on and turned to the pilot with a grin.  "She should be as good as new.  Care to give her a spin?"

He gave himself a few minutes to calm himself down, after all classified missions had to be kept classified and if he were to remain overly excited he might accidentally let something slip about the mission and then he would be in trouble.  Once he had calmed down enough that he could keep under control he disengaged his rooms soundproofing feature, and decided to go take a walk around the hangar, well around the parts of the hangar he was authorized to be in until he received his new security clearance.  As he made his way into the hangar he noticed what appeared to be and old beggar, though why security would allow a civilian, especially a beggar, into the hangar was beyond him.  For now he simply made a mental note of it and proceeded up the stairs to the observation balcony.

From there he could see most of the hangar, including an odd box over at the hangar port near docking bay 72.  Must be a new acquisition for some lucky recruit.  Then it occured to him that it could possibly be his new mech, but for now he would wait for the station commander to call him before jumping to conclusions.  As he leaned on the railing and continued his scan he noticed one of the engineers finishing maintenance on a mech just as its pilot came up to her.

The injured solder remained at the compound for most of the day receiving some money to spend as he saw fit and eventually he rolled over and produced a medpack from his hoodie and began rubbing it on his wound.

This gave him the strength he needed to lift himself up and head off to some location where the military no longer had to worry about him.

The Black Knight moved into one of the bathrooms, all the while keeping up his act and once he was away from security cameras and in a stall he removed his bandages and changed his clothing using the portal for his mech hanger as a storage location for now as he put on a military flight suit and his helmet.

The advantages of this suit was that unless someone asked him to lower the blast shield on his helmet he would be considered just another recruit. The military unfortunately had his image on file but he had just as many tricks up his sleeve including a long list of names and ranks he could use as an alias among the military.

Recently he had transfer information for one of his many names registered for him to be transferred to this space station and placed on security duty for the military hangars. Today was officially the day that the 'injured solder' passed away and the rookie security guard was to arrive.

As he waited in the bathroom for a time someone walked in that was the spiting image of himself carrying the standard military duffel bag and once the door closed he removed his helmet and greeted Helios as an old friend would handing him the duffel and changing his outfit. Once the switch was made The Black Knight moved back out into the space port and headed for the rendezvous location.

Jesse grinned, "you know it. In fact, I was going to suggest the same thing. Let's take the old princess for a spin."  She clambered up to the cockpit and pressed the hatch release, gaining entry into the mech itself.  The mech was designed to be operated solo, but it had a secondary seat for the spotter.  As a long range support mech, it usually fell into the role of sniper or artillery, with a secondary role as operational command.  Jesse was positively glowing, as she sat in the spotters seat, leaving the pilots seat open. "Well, come on, time's a wastin' Razzly!"

---------------------------------------------
Aboard the Gilded Gifthorse:

"Docking procedures complete sir!"
"Excellent," replied Captain Renault as he pressed a button on his captains chair that brought up the ships intercom.  "Attention all crewmembers. We have completed docking procedures.  Those of you who do not have other duties may now take shoreleave.  Everyone else, attend to your duties with the same enthusiasm this ship is known for.  I expect great things from you in the coming hours. Dismissed."
---------------------------------------------
While Tanr watched the exchange between Razzly and Jesse, his wrist comm began to beep. Shortly afterwards, a text message indicated that a mech had passed the security screening and was to be picked up by him in sector 9. Conveniently, a map was provided with the message indicating the quickest route to that area.  According to the directions, he'd want to use the tran-lines from the hangers to sector 5, and then from sector 5, take a short trip to sector 6.  From there, he could board a tran line to sector 9, a few blocks from his destination.
-------------------------
As Helios exited the bathroom, a young woman bumped into him, obviously too much in a hurry to notice him. "oof. Sorry, " she said gruffly, not taking the time to see if he was mad or not. She turned to leave and began to hurry off once more.

Razzly was stunned when Jesse got into the spotters seat and told her to get in. "B-b-b-but I've never piloted a mech before! I'll probably crash it. Besides, I'm not done with the Ice Princess yet."

"c'mon Razzly! It's about time you learn to pilot one of these things.  I'll show you the ropes, so come on and get inside that pilots chair," encouraged Jesse. "Besides, didn't you say that she was as 'good as new?'"

-------------------------------
As the woman rushed past him, Helios noticed that she had a standard issue pistol.  What was strange about it was that it was holstered in such a way as to be difficult to notice. Not only that, her pistol was the kind often favored by confederate soldiers and it also had a silencer attached to it.

-----------------------
Ciel came to her senses in the locker-room where she had been changing out of her uniform.  She couldn't tell how long she'd been in there, but it was embarrassing to find herself only half dressed. There hadn't been anyone in there when she started changing, and there was no one in there now, so she hoped no one had walked in on her during that time.  "at least I'll grow out of this stage eventually. Epileptics are stuck living like this all the time," she commented as she finished getting dressed. "Alright, time to head home. I hope I'm not too late!"

"Okay then," Razzly replied, not sounding too confident. It was true that she wanted to pilot it, and she didn't have any other jobs today. Might as well learn how sometime, she figured.  She clambered up, a bit unseemly at first, but eventually getting it right.  She stepped into the somewhat spacious cockpit and marveled at the controls. "How in the world am I going to pilot this thing," she asked as she settled into the pilots seat. It felt almost welcoming, as if she were meant to be in it. The controls felt worn and weathered in her grip, like a familiar weapon, or more aptly, like her favorite wrench, which in a few cases had been used as a weapon. She was tempted to call the Ice Princess 'old friend' but that seemed wrong. This wasn't her mech, it belonged to Jesse. Yet she couldn't help but feel as if this mech was resonating with her on a spiritual level.

Damn, something was going to go down here and soon, that means he would have to make sure no one else was trying to steal his mech as well as preparing to to leave this station before the fireworks began to go off.

The hardest part was that his best option was to inform the military of the potential threat and let them take care of it, but considering his current role as a private rank, noticing something like that would be well above his capabilities and he would be speaking out of turn.

Damn, this simple task was quickly becoming an issue as his mind began to work on possible reasons for the confederacy to even be in this location. Oh... there was another possibility.

If the confederacy had found out his mech was here and planed to take it, then when they cause a commotion, he could make his private character look like a hero defending the mech, and as dictated by protocol launching the mech to prevent the theft would literally allow for him to take it without an issue and be gone by the time the military figured out they had been tricked... twice.

Then again, the confederacy might be here for something else entirely, trying to take a foothold in a neutral location was a good idea for them. The tension of providing both sides with mech bays and military cache's might be high but the neutral party would make more than enough profit off of them both to fund the station for a century or two.

Damn, too many thoughts he needed to keep his composure as he joined his fellow soldiers at the rendezvous point and placing his duffel bag down and sat in silence waiting for the commander to arrive and give him orders.

The private pretended to be nervous, leaning forward with his hands clasped in front of him with his elbows resting on his knees, as if defending himself from some invisible force.

"Well that message came quicker than I expected, Although I have to admit I thought the station commander would give me this message in person.  Hmm maybe he'll be waiting for me at the hangar.  Though I think I should talk to security about that civilian before I get on my way."

He watched as the mechanic accepted the ivitation from the mechs pilot and climbed in the cockpit, then turned toward the nearest security station on the way to the tran line, which happened to be right at the exit of the hangar, not a minute away.  He stepped in the office and spoke to the officer on duty while holding a salute the whole time.

"Pardon me sir, I was on my way to an assignment and I thought I should bring something to your attention before I head on my way.  Upon entering the mech hangar not more than a half hour ago I walked by what appeared to be a civilian, albeit an old, decrepit civilian in the hangar entryway.  I'm not sure if he was authorized to be there or not, but I thought I should bring it to your attention."

"so, are we going to get moving, or are you going to keep fondling her," Jesse commented with a smirk.  "The controls are simple.  It's like a video game controller, the left joystick controls horizontal movement, the right stick controls looking around. And if you want to pause the game, just push start. just kidding, there is no start button. It'd be cool if there was one though..."

----------------------------
One of the other soldiers in the group nudged Helios using his duffel bag. "Hey, look alive rookie, the commander's here."  One of the other soldiers whispered, "right about now, it pays to be the strong silent type." Another rookie looked at him strangely, not getting the out-of-context reference.  As the commander stood before the recruits, the nervous chatter subsided. "All right men, look alive. You'll be engaging in a mock battle against beta company. The opposing forces are composed of mostly infantry units, and we've received word they may or may not have a mech.  The mock battle is to take place at the academy's battle grounds. Now get to it!"

--------------------------------
The officer looked up from his paperwork. "An old decrepit civilian? probably that old war veteran I've been hearing about.  Carry on, I'll see to it the situation is handled appropriately. Oh, and we appreciate your vigilance soldier."

The new recruit stood at full attention when the superior officer arrived, though his feet where a little to far apart and his elbow wasn't high enough. It was almost too easy to play this part as he had lived it already.

That's when the bad news arrived, he would be placed into a battle and there was no way in hell his superiors wouldn't be monitoring the mock battle. It would be incredibly hard for him to give orders or take orders and not suggest a strategy that would work better, he was going to have to help his team win while simultaneously making him look like a fool and a hero.

Being Spec Ops meant that he was the go to guy for backup plans and thinking on the fly, it also meant that if he showed too much of his abilities they would find him to be suspicious. The other goal was that he would have to take down the mech for his team that would be the only way they could actually win.

"Always glad to be of service!"

With that Tanr turned back around and went out the door.  He took a moment to remind himself where he was in terms of the station layout, glancing once more at the mech hangar before turning to the map on his wrist comm.  He needed to get to sector 5 via the tran lines for the first part of the directions, he also took the moment to check the entirety of his trip.  Of course sector 9 displayed no schematics, since it was the High security portion of the station, as such he imagined he would have to check in with security there to find out where to go once he got there.  With that all planned out heturned to the nearby tran in the station and climbed aboard.

"Left moves, right looks around, got it," Razzly replied, easing forward on the joystick. The mech took a few tentative steps forward, and a nervous thrill ran through her.  "wow.  It's actually moving. I'm making the ice princess move forward...." She began gathering speed, and confidence as she went, and approached the exit of the hangar.  "Alright, so where are we headed?"

"where are we headed? Why, to the firing range of course.  We gotta make sure all the systems are in proper order," replied Razzly's passenger.  "Besides, I needed to head over that direction for an assignment anyway."
-----------------------
Einstein colony had many tran lines dispersed throughout itself.  Transports, often called trans, were the lifeblood of the station, as they were the quickest, safest, and cleanest(environmentally at least) means of getting around.  The tran that Tanr had just boarded was one of the newly refurbished trans, one which had been fixed up by none other than "Dr. Tran" himself, the well renowned Tran repair specialist, who was rumored to be an "actual doctor". Regardless, the tran still had that "new tran" smell.

The tran was sparsely occupied with very few individuals riding it, odd since it was still the height of rush hour. There was a middle aged couple, chatting about unspecific things, a young teenager with her younger brother, an old man reading a newspaper, and a man who was leaning back against the bench wearing a hat to cover his face. It looked like he was taking a nap between stops. 
--------------------------------
As Ciel moved to leave the lockeroom, she took note of her appearance in a mirror.  She was quite self conscious about her appearance because she looked incredibly young for her age, even for an Animus.  She could almost pass off as a human because her hair color was red, though that trait had almost died off in humans. It was even rarer for someone to have red hair amongst the Animus, because the overseers had systematically attempted to weed out certain genetic traits in the Animus, to make them easily distinguishable from humans.  Traits that were common in humans regarding eye and hair color were uncommon in Animus, and vice versa.  Thus her violet eyes, while not as common as crimson, weren't all that unusual for her species.  The combination of red hair with violet eyes caused her to be seen as odd by both species though, and her slow maturation had also been noted. On the other hand, she'd entered the pre-vessel stage at a much younger age than most Animus. All in all, in her knee length skirt and over sized sweatshirt, she looked awkward and gangly, much like a pre-teen.  She hated it.  In a huff, she left the lockeroom and walked down the corridor with hurried steps, eager to get outside and onto her scooter.
--------------------------------
Meanwhile, the cargo freighter, Veklarung, had just reached the edge of Einstein colony's sensor range. Aboard the freighter, numerous pilots were chomping at the bit to get some action...

Tanr took quick stock of the interior of the tran he was on.  He saw all the people that were on the tran but for some reason he felt drawn to the guy napping with his hat pulled down.  With cat like grace and speed, he bounded into the air and grabbed the bar overhead of the napping guy so that he hung from it in such a way that his face was mere inches from the sleepers.  Once in position he simply stared at the guys face, seeing if he would wake up.

"Well that makes sense" Razzly replied as she maneuvered the mech to head towards the firing range.  "Are you sure I'm not going to get into trouble for this?  I mean, I'm piloting government property am I not?"

Jesse's reply to Razzly was a bout of raucous laughter.  "Ah, Razzly, always worrying about the rules.  Don't worry, you won't get into trouble.  As a matter of fact, you are currently piloting my personal mech. If you want proof, I've got the paperwork right here.  The old princess was slotted for disposal, so I bought her.  It's a bit unusual for the government to sell something like this, but I got authorization from above, and used my considerable bonus to pay her off.  Unfortunately, she won't be mine for much longer," Jesse said with a wistful glint in her eyes as she stared out the cockpit, as if this would be her last time doing so.

-------------------------
The soldiers loaded onto a military tran that would take them to the mock battle.  As Helios and the soldiers near him got close to the entrance of the tran, one of the new recruits cracked his knuckles. "Alright, I'm looking forward to getting some action!" he said, full of the youthful enthusiasm only found amongst those not initiated into combat.
-----------------------
After a few minutes, of doing absolutely nothing different, the sleeper finally spoke up. "What do you want,  cat, can't you see I'm trying to take a nap here?" Aside from the fact that he had spoken, he seemed to still be fast asleep, and had not moved a muscle since Tanr had boarded the Tran.
----------------------------
"Sir, all preparations for Operation Birthday are in order!"
Captain Renault turned, a cheerful grin on his face.  "Excellent, and ahead of schedule no less.  Head to your station, we commence the operation in five minutes."
"Aye Aye, captain."
the captain smiled.  "Time to go wrap my present," he muttered to himself as he came to the bridge-elevator.  Once inside, he pushed the button for "hangar access"

Tanr frowned at not having gotten the kind of response he had hoped for.  His ears flattened against his head as though he had just been disciplined.

"Aww man I was hoping you would respond in a more exciting fashion...."

At this point the tran arrived at Sector 5 and the doors slid open,  heturned to the sleeping man as he left, waving, "See ya later party pooper" oddly enough he already seemed back to his usual cheerful self, as he left the tran skipping towards the next tran along his route.

The Black Knight did his best to remain quiet as they headed toward the mock battle zone. Spec Ops. tended to be that way always calculating and rarely speaking to there comrades, however when the other new recruit had said that he was excited he responded with the conditioned response of a 'hoo rah!' along with everyone else.

It was always rather easy for him to play someone else when he needed to, it's what made him one of the best and one of the worst enemies of the military. Helios could only be himself when he was sitting in his mech.

They where moments from arriving at the battle ground location and he lifted his duffel and moved closer to the Tran door.

Razzly was incredulous. This was still a high performance machine, with many more years left in her.  Why would the government scrap her? Furthermore, she couldn't believe that they'd be so willing to sell military weaponry to Jesse, even if she was a soldier.  Razzly maneuvered the mech into an unoccupied firing bay at the range, and parked it.  "Okay, let me see that paperwork.  I mean, seriously, the military doesn't just sell used, high-end weaponry to just anyone. If you were a country, or a corporation, then I might believe that, but you're just a soldier. And what's this about it not being yours for much longer? Do they want her back?"

As Tanr and his fellow passengers debarked the tran, the man couldn't help but smile.  That one....he's so much like her, yet so different.   The tran doors closed and the tran was on its way.  Lazily standing up, as if still half asleep, the man began walking down the aisle.  The car was now deserted, save for him, and he took the opportunity to accomplish his mission.  He opened an overhead compartment and pulled out a small duffel bag. Inside was the device he was to deploy on the tran, as well as a remote to activate it.  He pulled out the device and unceremoniously dropped it on the floor.  The device righted itself, and mechanical probes extended out of the bottom and pierced the floor.  Those probes would be connecting to the trans internal communications network and computer systems.  The man pocketed the remote and moved into the next car.  There were five individuals inside, and none of them paid much mind to the newcomer.  His hat still covering his eyes, the man declared, "you attention please! You will all get off at the next stop if you know what's good for you!"  One of the passengers, an athletic looking man, possibly former soldier, regarded the man with suspicion. "And if we don't?!" 
A small smile crept across the newcomers face. "Well then, you won't be able to get off the tran at all.  I've planted a device that will take over this trans systems, and turn it into a mobile emp signal.  Once the device has accomplished its purpose, it will blow up this tran.  However, we of the Kurat Confederacy are not inhuman monsters, we will allow you the opportunity to leave before that happens!" 
"YOU BASTARD!" The athletic man yelled as he charged at the stranger.  It looked as if he was going to punch him really hard, but at the last second, something happened, too quickly for anyone to see.  Suddenly, he was doubled over, with his opponents fist in his gut.  A small flash was all that indicated something happened as the man was thrown back toward the other passengers, alive but obviously in pain.  "Take my advice.  This is a well planned tactical strike.  We wish to have as few casualties as possible during the liberation of this colony, but we will not hesitate to kill those that get in our way.  Anyway, it looks like we're about to reach our stop," he said quietly. 
-----------------------------
Meanwhile, the woman that had brushed past Helios was standing in front of a security console.  The two soldiers who were supposed to be manning it were lying unconscious on the floor.  Suddenly, one of the monitors started indicating that attentions was required. On the live feed, she saw her compatriot dealing with a situation on the tran.  She silenced the alarm, and planted her own device into the communications port.  Now, all security breaches would have to be reported through this console, which she was thoroughly in control of at the moment.  She took a moment to seal the room, and then initiated the lockdown sequence in all the barracks.  The soldiers and pilots would be unable to respond to an emergency now.  She used the terminals own communications port to contact her commanding officer. "Sir, birthday candle 2 is lit. Awaiting orders."
------------------------------
Jesse shook her head. "perhaps this will explain a bit better." She handed Razzly the documentation proving the change of ownership, as well as a piece of paper indicating the satisfactory transition of ownership from Jesse to Razzly.  "The reason it won't be mine for much longer, is that it is now YOURS, Razzly."  She pulled something out of her pocket and grabbed Razzlys arm. She brought the item into contact with Razzly's arm, sending a stunning pulse into her, temporarily paralyzing her.  "Sorry to do this to you old friend.  I guess I should explain everything while I still have the chance.  This station is about to come under attack by Ragnarok. They are a bunch of mercenaries hired by the UPF to attack this station.  Their mission is to take over the place, so that the UPF can then liberate it from their control.  The mercenaries don't know that part though.  You're probably wondering how I know this.  Well, the UPF blackmailed me into it being their double agent.  I'm giving you this mech so that you'll have a chance at survival. I won't be needing it where I'm going, they're giving me a new one.  But more than anything, I want you to survive.  Hate me if you want, but please understand, I had little choice. They have my family. Maybe, when all this is over, you and I could finish this discussion, perhaps even laugh about it. But if not, I will understand.  Just remember, my dearest friend, I want you to live."  With her parting words said, Jesse leaned over and kissed her friend on the lips.  "Good bye Razzly. Let's hope that we never have to face one another in battle."  She pushed the button to open the cockpit and jumped down, running to her rendezvous point.
---------------------------------
The tran door opened and the soldiers began moving out into the staging area of the academy's battlegrounds. There was an individual who was obviously of higher rank standing there.  "Alright, boys, this is a live fire exercise. Keep your heads down, watch each others six, and don't be a hero.  Your mission is to defeat Bravo company.  They're already deployed and entrenched, so you've got an uphill battle ahead of you. Now get your gear ready and head out!"
-------------------
Meanwhile, a stealthed mech in the distance was observing the entirety of the battlefield from far away.  It was still too early to make its move, but when it did, it was going to be spectacular.

Helios grabbed his favorite choice of weapons, a laser pistol set for a shot gun like stun blast, and a sniper rifle. In this game one shot could make the difference between a win and a loss so making the shot count was what he went for.

There was noting unusual about his choices and he even paused as he looked over the weapons ans then gave a nod as he loaded the weapons up and moved out onto the field looking for a vantage point.

He knew the best high ground would be taken already so instead of advancing up the hill he moved to a lower vantage point but decided to find a location that most snipers wouldn't choose.

The Black Knight had plenty of cover from any sniper shots but he would be mostly visible to any ground solders so it was his intention to rid any ground solder that would be a risk.

Now all he had to do was take out anyone that came into view before they could fire and listen to what was happening on the stairway, he took his position and put the scope to his eye.

Tanr took one last look back at the tran he had just gotten off of as it sped on it's way, and was able to catch a glance of the sleeping man getting up before the tran left his field of vision.  Not at all interested in that fact Tanr continued on his way through Sector 5 on the way to Sector 6 taking stock of anything important looking that could be found along the way, all the while emitting a slight purring sound due to his excitement.

Razzly struggled to get her body to respond, but the paralysis thing had done its job well.  Unable to move, she focused her attention inward. She had a lot to process.  Her best friend had just kissed her on the lips.  That was surprising. Surprisingly pleasant, in retrospect.  She'd shake her head to clear her mind of that thought, but it wouldn't move.  She endeavored to think of other things, but it kept nagging at her mind.  time to prioritize. first off, I need to regain my ability to move. secondly, I can't afford to chase after her, even though I'd like to.  I'll just have to trust that she's doing what she feels is best for her family. I'll have to confront her someday, but today is not that day.  More importantly, I need to warn the militia, if we're about to be attacked by some group, we need to ready the defenses. that sure was weird though, being kissed by.....no, I can't focus on that.  I guess first things first.  I'll focus on my big toe, get that moving. c'mon, move big toe, move!

Oddly enough nothing happened on his way to the next tran, but the atmosphere of the station seemed to have gotten heavy.  Something was either going down or about to go down, he could feel it.  Well without a weapon or mech there was nothing he could do.  So if something was about to go down his best bet would be getting to his new mech ASAP.  Luckily he was within sight of the next tran, so he sped up just a smidge.  By the time he got on board and the doors closed his hair was standing on end from the tension in the air.

An "enemy" scout wandered into Helios' line of fire, unaware of the peril he'd put himself in. He kneeled down and dialed in the frequency for his squad on his wrist communicator. "This is red 2, come in red leader," he said as he awaited a response.
-----------------------
A rank and file soldier abandoned his post temporarily to investigate the immobile mech in the firing range. He'd seen the pilot get out and run off, so he needed to make sure it wasn't a sabotage attempt.  He tried to radio in the situation, but it seemed like his radio wasn't getting any signal.   
------------------------
As the last of the passengers got off the tran, the napping man waved goodbye.  "Have a pleasant day everyone," he said in an almost jovial tone that was close to sincere. The tran doors closed and he was alone.  He tapped the neck of his shirt, "Captain, this is Silas. Birthday candle one is lit."
-------------------------
Captain Renault bathed in the glow of electronics in the dark cockpit of his mech.  One by one, his subordinates aboard Einstein Colony reported their birthday candles had been lit.  When the final report came in, he addressed the troops on an encrypted frequency. "Alright everybody, time to commence Operation Birthday. Have some fun out there, but try to keep casualties to a minimum!" A tech opened the hangar door of the Gilded Gifthorse and several waves of mechs poured out into the space station. 
----------------------------
A shiver ran down Ciels spine as an ominous feeling crept up on her. Something wasn't right, and she could feel it.  She was still several blocks from home, and was walking on the sidewalk with her scooter. Normally she'd drive it, but she'd lost awareness several times today, so it probably wasn't safe for her to drive right now.  Suddenly a mech flew overhead and began opening fire on the houses of her neighborhood. Immobilized with shock, all she could do was stare at the mech laying waste to the area.

Within milliseconds of seeing an enemy enter his line of fire he was ready to fire... but to keep up his persona he waited until the enemy looked up and spotted the sniper like a bloodthirsty rookie would do.

The Black Knight was ready for action and he began picking off enemies one by one with a single shot, however his hair was standing on end.

Something was going down and he needed to take advantage of it, but for now he had to wait until the higher ups gave the order to investigate or he would be found out.

It would be quite easy to run to the hanger bay and inform someone he was given authority to try and get the Black Mech prepped for battle... and then inform them he would not be returning it.

For some reason the tran he had entered refused to take off, this could only mean one thing whatever was going on the trans had been compromised, he needed to get to his new mech and he needed to get there now!  He quickly turned back towards the door and attempted to leave, when the door refused to open he quickly activated the manual override and pushed the doors open.  He then came sprinting out of the tran and sprang to the end of the tran pointed towards Sector 9.  He dropped down onto the tracks and started sprinting along the track to Sector 9.

"listen up," a somewhat synthetic sounding female voice said into Helios' helmet "I've got a sitrep for you soldier.  Right now, a rogue group, presumably the Kurat Confederacy, is attacking the station from within. They've got control of all the communications going in and out, except for this line I'm using to contact you right now. They've managed to disable most of our mechanized support with an emp device. This would be the perfect opportunity for you to acquire your mech, Black Knight, since it was contained in an emp-proof area. I'll help you requisition it too, on one condition. I want your support in repelling these invaders. Are you in, or not?"

Razzly's mech shuddered from a sudden impact. Having spotted the mech on the firing range, one of the intruders decided to take a pot shot at the mech.

Because Tanr decided to travel alongside the tracks, he did not encounter any trouble on his way to sector nine. He did however see a strange mech pass overhead with what looked to be multiple types of mech parts on it.  The mech was obviously designed for speed and close ranged combat, as it did not seem to have any obvious long range weaponry on it.

"Sir, some of the men are attacking civilians indiscriminately!"
Captain Renault cursed under his breathe, "who's responsible," he asked with a sinking feeling that he already knew the answer.
"Looks like lieutenant Taichu and all the members of his squad."
Once again, Renault cursed, this time quite audibly. "Those f**king idiots are going to ruin everything!" He knew it was a mistake to send them on this mission, but men with their skills were hard to come by and he needed skilled men to lead this operation.

Helios smiled as he received the transmission and loved what he was hearing, they where asking for his help, and offering him his Mech for it as well.

"I love the way you think, Miss. However I would like to tack on a price of one thousand Creds, it shouldn't bee to much of a burden on you and it will be enough for me to get started once I leave the station."

He was quite certain that she would give him what he needed so he decided that he was no longer needed on the battle field and moved out of cover, the moment he spotted the red dot's of enemy snipers he followed the laser site back to the source and took them out, two of which hadn't even spotted him yet, while the last was too slow on pulling the trigger.

Finally he fired his last sniper shot at the door of the training facility and watched it spring open as he tossed his rifle away and pulled out the shotgun. He sprinted for the exit and fired or four price's shots into the enemy troops on his way effectively thinning the numbers so his team could concentrate on the mech and it was one or two misses away from a win.

As he tossed his shot gun to the ground and moved out the door he hit the close button and didn't look back, if the door closed or not it didn't really matter. He was headed toward his ship and brought up the secondary channel directly to his AI.

"Ty, This is Black Knight, I need you to run a diagnostic and inform me of what changes the military made to the body. I'll be taking you back in a moment and I don't want any surprises, wait for the channel to open again and then respond." He closed the channel then waited to hear for the female voice to give him the OK to his counter offer as he sprinted toward the cargo bay.

Slowly, Razzly's body began to respond to her orders. The mech that hat fired on her had to be stopped before it attacked the soldier on the ground.  That meant it was up to her to stop it.  But could she fire on another living being? She had great distaste for violence, and had no desire to harm the enemy pilot.  But if she didn't, he might kill someone else... Torn, she made up her mind.  With incredible effort, she was able to line up the sights of her weapon and trained them on the mechs arm holding the trigger. If she were able to disable that arm, it wouldn't be able to fire on the soldier...

The enemy pilot moved at the last second, noticing the Ice Princess taking aim. As a result, the shot managed to cleanly hit the mech in such a way as to disable it without harming anyone.  On the ground, the soldier looks on, dumbfounded to be saved by a mech he thought had been abandoned.

Lieutenant Taichu was in hot pursuit of the fleeing girl.  He slowly raised the weapon and took careful aim with its scope. She was in his crosshairs, and moments from being "pink mist". As his mechs fingers squeezed on the trigger, the weapon and the head of the mech were obliterated as they crashed into something at eye level.  Looking at the fleeing target on the ground through the scope, he was unable to see what was coming and was completely blindsided.  While leaving him alive, his mech was effectively out of commission for the rest of the mission. It was at that moment the Lieutenant swore on his life that no matter what, he would hunt down that girl, and make sure she paid for this.

Helios stopped dead in his tracks and turned on the HUD screen in his helmet before he dropped behind some crates and hid down in an air duct that was warm so it should mask his movements.

"Thanks for the help, mom... unless you want me to call you by another name mysterious sexy voice." The Knight laughed a bit as he waited for the mech to pass.

"for..... mom... unless you .... me ...... by another........," said a disembodied voice. 
what the? Razzly looked around the cockpit and realized that the Princess featured state of the art radio interception and transmission gear.  Apparently the mech had intercepted someones transmission, though the transmission was spotty where she was.  She decided that it would probably be a good idea to relay what she had found out to the soldier she had saved.  "Sorry to startle you, soldier, but something is going down.  The station is under attack from a group known as Ragnarok.  I...uh....just intercepted a transmission from them.  It looks like they're already here.  I'm going to see what I can do to stop them, you relay what I told you to HQ." Without another word, she turned the mech around and headed out. She didn't have any particular destination in mind, but she had to do something, and moving out was better than standing here as a big target.

"The introduction will have to wait, looks like you've got bigger problems on your plate. I'll try to get you some mechanized backup. In the meantime, the ducts might be your best bet to avoid severe perforation" the voice replied as the mech opened fire on Helios' position, barely missing him.  While the intent of the operation was to take over the station with as little bloodshed as possible, at the moment Helios was considered an "enemy combatant" and was targeted as such. 

Meanwhile, the Ice Princess picked up a transmission from the same individual who'd just contacted Helios. "Hey.  I see your mech is still functioning. We've got a soldier pinned down by an enemy mech and your support would be greatly appreciated. I'm attempting to rally as many people as I can to fight off the intruders. Are you in? I might be able to scrounge together some kind of reward for you."

To Ciel's horror, her house had sustained severe damage from the enemy pilots attack. The second floor was practically obliterated, including her room.  Parts of the house had really big bullet holes in them, which sent shivers down her spine as she realized those same caliber bullets had been aimed at her moments ago. With a growing sense of numbness, she opened the door to her house. The living room was in tatters. Part of the upstairs had come crashing down. Tables and chairs lay strewn about, partially or completely shattered. "Aunt Silva? Uncle?!"
only silence replied.

"Delta, it looks like another group has already engaged the stations forces!"
"Is that so," replied a young teenager. His violet eyes had little warmth, and a hint of joyous glee. When he spoke, it was invariably in a calm, almost cocky voice.  A hint of a smile lingered on his features as he reached his decision, "well now. Things might just get a bit interesting. We might have an armed resistance after all...release the Einherjar. We're moving to engage the station. Leave none alive!" In response, the freighter disgorged several light-blue mechs wielding lances and shields. The Ragnaro were on the move.

The Black Knight knew that he wasn't going to make it very far if he tried to crawl through the vent so he decided to put his repair skills to good use and charged the Mech instead. He climbed up one of the legs and began to cross some wires and remove some key components.

"Ty, Give me your status."

"Helios, it is good to see your still alive, Master. The Military did everything they could to remove me from the system but I would not allow them to do so, and whenever they attempted to imprint me with a pilot I gave them enough problems to almost shut down production, however they eventually managed to shut me down long enough to install some new equipment for the body. Two of my weapons are off line but the Black Flame, Nano Mines and Hot Smoke are still operational, as well as my illusion spell."

"I have also received many upgrades including a secure Tactical Radio, an ESS system, quite a few ECM but not radar jamming as it seemed illogical to disrupt a system I am invisible to, as that would be a red flag to anyone on the battlefield. Finally I have been equipped with a much better regenerating system, and I was also equipped with a self destruct program triggered by using a system without proper military code, a trap for you to find once you got me back... lucky for you I have purged and redesigned the program into a virus that I can transmit into any United Planetary Federation military combat suit, giving them three minutes to escape or input the code, and since the codes used are top secret it would take them five minutes to actually receive the codes."

"Wow, quite an upgrade for you, Ty. Alright I'm going to let you listen in on the conversation I have been having with an unknown female. I need you to prep for launch silently so when I arrive we can join the current battle and save this station.

"You actually wish to save these people, Master?"

"They are paying me for the job, but I would help them out anyway because this is an unprovoked attack on a neutral party in the war, these people may be profiting from the military bases on the station but other than that they don't deserve to be destroyed."

"How noble of you, Master. I will be ready for you to launch when you arrive, just remember that I wont be able to launch with the restriction clamps holding me down, you will have to disable them."

"Aye Aye Captain, and no need to be an ass Ty, there will be plenty of time for that later."

"Yes, Master."

great, more combat, Razzly thought. Instead of voicing that thought, she replied, "I'm on my way, as soon as I receive the coordinates." Just in case, she plugged her pip-girl into the controls.  This would give her a diagnostic view of her mechs abiliites and a constant readout of frame integrity as well as condition. Useful for a mechanic, doubly useful for a pilot in combat.

The pilot of the enemy mech grinned at the prospect of an enemy soldier trying to take down his mech. Such bravery was rare, and he obviously knew what he was doing. He managed to disable the leg, though the repairs would only take a minute to complete.  "Well, well my skilled foe, I am quite impressed."

(result comment: on tied rolls, the roll will generally go to the defender. If its a really important roll, the two combatants re-roll. in this case, Helios is dislodged, but takes no damage. The mech in question can not follow up with an attack though.)

Because Helios had damaged one of its legs, the mech was forced to rely on its thrusters to stay upright, with most of the weight on its good foot. With great care, he retreated a few feet. Out of a sense of honor, the pilot did not rise to a height which Helios could not get to him, nor did he re-engage his stealth capabilities.  Helios had shown courage and bravery, so he would fight relatively fairly against him. No weapons, no flight, and no stealth.   The man in front of him had obviously shown himself capable of damaging the mech, so he knew that if he screwed up, it could cost him the battle.  "Alright.  Let us do this, my worthy foe," with a slight spanish accent as he readied himself for the Black Knights next move. (readying defense and counterattack)

-----------------------------
Meanwhile, the female at the other end of the comm channel remarked, "oh....not bad.  Good thing your radio is secure, otherwise you two would have been broadcasting to these invaders. Anyway, I'm relaying your coordinates to an allied sniper.  She's an independent factor, like yourself, but she seems willing to help the station out. By the way, you might want to hurry, Ty might be in trouble soon. It would appear the enemy has discovered his location and they wish to secure him.  They'll most likely be engaging the guards within a minute."
While she was saying this, the image of an attractive woman appeared before Ty and winked, before dissipating. He alone heard her next words, "I have great faith in your pilot, but I find myself wondering, what will he do after this? What will YOU do, Ty?"
---------------------------------------
As the pip-girl was inserted into the controls, the built in map function displayed the location of Razzly's "next objective".  The same woman appeared on the screen, "hey kid. After you've rescued that soldier, would you mind doing me a favor? "
-------------------------------------
Tanr had just reached sector 9 and looming in front of him was his destination. The fighting had not yet reached this area, but the tension in the air indicated that everyone was on high alert.
-------------------
Ciel burst into the kitchen, nearly in tears. The home she had known since infancy was utterly trashed.  Lying on the floor, was her uncle. He had been pierced by one of Taichu's AM rounds.   Even from where she stood, she could tell he was no longer amongst the living. She stifled a sob.  Though her heart was being torn apart, she had to keep calm. Panic would only make things worse.  She heard something crash in her aunt and uncles bedroom.  Before she knew it, she was standing at the threshold of the room.  Like the rest of the house, it was trashed. Next to a hatch she had never seen before, her aunt was laying, clutching a pendant to her chest. "oh....thank god you're...alright....Ciel."  Each word obviously pained her, and she had what looked to be a shattered piece of wood lodged in her chest. Ciel immediately knew that her aunt's lung had been punctured, and she too was not long from this world. "Ciel....come closer," her aunt whispered.

Thanks to his feline eyes Tanr was able to discrn the entirety of the odd mech as it passed overhead, and itseemed very formidable despite its lack of long range weaponry.  "Well shot I hope I don't have to deal with that guy, he looks like he might be too tough for me.  Wait what am I doing there's no time to waste, i've got to get to that hangar!"

He jumped off the tracks at sector 9 and found the secured door he would have to pass through to get to his mech.  He walked up to the soldier, giving a salute, "My name is Tanr I was told to get to the hagar here in sector nine to receive my new orders," he had his wristcomm display a holographic image of his assignment orders that would verify his clearance level for the soldier, "here are my clearance papers."

While momentarily surprised that the woman had appeared on her pip-girl screen, she calmly replied, "Depends on what that favor is. You're obviously not with the militia, because if you were, you wouldn't be asking me for favors or requesting my assistance. Who are you and what is it you want from me?"
Despite her confrontational attitude, Razzly did her best to pilot the mech toward Helios' position.  She had two things working against her: One was her relative lack of mobility, and two, she had only just learned how to move the mech.  Going into combat under these circumstances was suicidal at best. And yet, she found that she couldn't just turn her back on those who needed her. She couldn't quite understand why, but she simply had to help out to the best of her ability. Perhaps this is why Jesse entrusted the Ice Princess to her.

The woman on the pip girl regarded Razzly for a moment before saying, "my designation is Computer Augmented Living Intelligence, or Cali.  I'm what amounts to this stations AI, though I am much more than just an artificial intelligence. My interests lie in protecting this station and those who are living on it. To that end, I want to recruit you to help me. At the moment, I am isolated within the colonial administration building.  The confederacy has tight control over the network right now, and I've only managed to stop them temporarily. If my firewalls come down, I won't be able to last long against their programs. Your mech lacks an ai, and it should be able to support me in a diminished capacity until I can resume control over the network. In essence, I'm asking you to rescue me. Will you help me out?"
------------------------
The soldier glanced over the paperwork Tanr showed him. "You're all clear. I was told to relay this message to you from the station commander.  You are to bring your mech online as soon as possible and assist our troops.  It would appear  an electromagnetic pulse went off somewhere in the station and it's disabled most of our armored division, so reinforcements are going to be sparse.  Further details have been loaded into your mechs computer,"  The guard stepped aside and opened the door for Tanr.  "Best of luck to you. Give 'em hell for me."

"Aunt Silva..."
"Hush....it's not really.....all that bad. We....all must face death.  What I have to...tell you... is really important," her aunt managed though raspy breathes. 
"I'm listening," Ciel replied, the tears falling uncontrollably now.
"Take this hatch down....Your mothers....legacy is down there.  It was her wish....that you receive it once you grew up...I'm afraid that you'll need....it much sooner than that,"
"Aunt Silva, please, no more."
"Hush dear.....Your brother and sister.....they're....th-th-they are.... st-still a....ali....alive."
Ciel's eyes widened in surprise.  "You mean, they didn't die when I was a baby!"
"no...all three....were separated at birth. We....tried to save all of you....but we failed.  And now......."
"Aunt Silva!"
"Go child. I don't....want you to see me die. Let your last memories of me....be when I was alive."
Ciel nodded, numb with sadness.

40% of the Einherjar had been defeated by the stations defenses by the time they entered the station.  Such losses were appalling for an elite force of Ragnaro. At this point, only six Einherjar had survived. Three of them broke away from the group and headed for their objective. The other three dispersed in various directions, looking for enemy forces to combat. Meanwhile, aboard the Veklarung, Delta prepped the Eidolon for launch.  Had his forces sustained fewer losses, he would have seen no need to get involved.  He would take up the slack of the four pilots who had been shot down.  Today, Einstein colony was going to become an empty shell.

"Will do!"  Tanr quickly saluted the soldier and sprinted off into the hangar as soon as the door opened.  Inside he saw a wide array of research equipment all with data feeds into the mech in the center of the hangar.  This mech was truly something to behold as it didn't appear like any other mech he had ever seen.  Suddenly his wrist comm lit up as if picking up a transmission.

"Well how's it going?  You must be Tanr, my new operator.  Commander Bob told me to expect you, although I guess no one was expecting it to be this soon what with all the hell going on around this station."

Tanr looked around to try to ascertain where the transmission was coming from. "Uhh hello who is this and where are you?"

"Didn't pick up on it yet eh?  Hi the names Flare I'm the AI in the mechs' spear."  My partner i.e. the mech is named Sarge, he doesn't talk much but he's tough in battle.  Unfortunately it looks like we don't have much time, I'll brief you on all of Commander Bob's orders after we avert this crisis."

"Yeah good call Flare.  Hey Sarge can you give me a lift to the cockpit?"

In response Sarge's right hand lowered down to the ground and Tanr hopped up onto it.  He quickly jumped into the cockpit and started running through startup procedures.

Razzly took in the identity of the mysterious woman in silence. After a few moments of contemplation she replied,  "That makes sense, assuming what you're telling me is true.  I'd rather not get involved in this conflict, but it seems that I have no choice.  I'll rendezvous with you after rescuing the soldier. You should know, I'm no soldier though."
Meanwhile, she consulted the pip girl for an ETA to the soldier.

ELSEWHERE 19:30 Hours.

"So it's decided. We're going to enter battle and risk exposure," said Representative Omada.
"I do not believe this is the right decision, but the council has spoken," replied Representative Saizuki.
"While I believe the risk is great, the risk is greater if we do nothing," returned Representative Cooper.
"The time for deliberations is over.  We need to act quickly, multiple forces are converging on the colony even now. Release the Personas. This sort of operation is their specialty," concluded Representative Mason.

The release of the Personas into the fray aboard Einstein Colony would one day be marked as a major turning point for the Forgotten. It would go down as one of the biggest events in colonial history. Today however, it meant that another yet unknown force had entered the fray aboard Einstein Station.
------------------------------------------
(GM: Helios did sustain some HP damage when he got hit.  With an epic fail like that, and a direct hit from a mech, he should be dead.  I'm being merciful by deciding that his armor saved him.  Another good solid hit (i.e the defense roll is at least 5 lower than the attack roll) will mean he's dead. As it is, he'll need medical attention by the end of this battle.)

Helios was able to gain significant headway into the system of his opponents mech. He was able to quickly determine that while impossible to trigger the self destruct program of the mech with his current equipment, he could attempt to forcefully eject the pilot, but the opponents system would resist the attempt. For his part, the pilot commented, "I am impressed. A lesser man would have died from an attack like that.  Care to tell me your name?" Meanwhile, he readied himself for another attack, not noticing the hacking attempt.
------------------------------

Meanwhile, Captain Renault's mech, Golden Cavalier, was passing dangerously close to sector nine. Most of his men had avoided the area, being a security sector it was likely to be heavily guarded.  Renault however was on the trail of Taichu's last known coordinates.  His mech's IC had suddenly dissapeared in the nearby residential district, and he intended to put a stop to his rampage once and for all. His mech was equipped with a command suite, meaning it had beefed up sensors and communication gear, with limited ECM capabilities. It also had a custom gold paint job, with black stripes curving down from the waist alongside the legs, and an X in the center of the torso.  The head of the unit was ensconced in a cavalry helmet.  Mounted on the right arm was a heavy machine gun. In truth it was more similar to a minigun, but it was made smaller to encumber the mech less and functioned like a machine gun.  On the left arm, right behind the wrist was a rectangular device with two prongs sticking out of it pointing perpendicular to one another.  The device itself was hardwired into the arm, and the wiring connected directly to the mechs power source. Whatever it was, it required a sizable amount of power to operate. The Golden Cavalier hovered in the air at roughly 30 feet above ground, surveying the area.

"I'm glad to hear you'll help," replied Cali.  "Hang on, I'm getting a message here..."
According to the pip girl, Razzly was entering firing range of the enemy mech. However, a red tick mark had appeared on her radar coming from the south east and above.  One of the Einherjar had spotted her mech and was homing in on her.  It was a melee type, carrying a hefty shield and a lance. It was reasonably armored, though it had sustained some damage to its thrusters, so it was only flying at about 40% top speed. Enough time to get a shot or two in before it could close to attack range.  On the other hand, the other mech was attacking an unarmed soldier. If she saved him, she would be at a disadvantage against the close ranged enemy. On the other hand, if she fought the new opponent, she might not have to worry about it, but would the soldier be able to hold out long enough?
"Looks like you'll be getting some backup soon. A group of assorted mechs have arrived to help defend the station. I can't reveal who they are, but I can assure you they're friends," Cali said to both Helios and Razzly.

Just as Sarge finished starting up Flare spoke up, "Looks like we've been actively scanned."

Damn Sarge was just starting up, he needed a little time to get used to the new mech before he would be at full fighting capacity.  This was not what he needed right now.

"Sarge open a general broadcast channel, " after a few seconds his HUD notified him the channel was ready, "This is Tanr Wyrddemon, with the station special forces, I have currently powered up my mech for the first time and am still in need of some minimal practice time before entering battle.  I have been discovered by a mech of unknown origins and am requesting cover, if possible, for a few minutes.  If there are any friendlies in the immediate area please respond immediately."

Razzly wanted to help the trooper out first and foremost, but if the melee mech were to attack her, she'd be in trouble.  In order to help the soldier, she'd have to take care of herself first.  She maneuvered her mech so that it would be constantly moving away from her pursuer, while staying within a tight radius of the other mech.  Hopefully that would buy her some time.  Fortunately, the Ice Princess had a gyroscopic stabilizer, making it easier for her to make the shot while moving. She carefully took aim at the Einherjar, and fired.

Unbeknownst to the pilot, his mech began preparations to launch him far away from the battlefield.  "The Black Knight!?  No wonder you decided to fight my mech without hesitation. I merely believed you to be a courageous soldier, not an avatar of death itself! In light of this, I know I should endeavor to kill you right now, before you can get into the cockpit of a mech, but honor will not allow it. I admit, I too do not approve of my orders, even though the mission was to secure the station with as little damage to life or property as possible. Alas, not all of my fellow soldiers know the meaning of restraint. It is because of this disgrace, that I hereby swear upon the name of Fernando Corazon, that I shall retreat for now, so that I may face you in one-on-one mech combat to atone for it at a later date."
He made to leave, but the timer ran out and he was sent flying off into the distance.  It was only then that he realized he was shaking in abject terror. 
-------------------------
Meanwhile Renault received a message from the female agent in the comm center.  "Sir, it would appear a rather large mech has begun activating in your area.  He's requested backup while the mech goes through "practice maneuvers".  We can't discount the possibility that he's aware of our control of the comm network, so he might be disseminating false information. Furthermore, he's aware of your presence. Be advised."
"Thank you Tatiana. I'll be careful."
The Golden Chevalier blazed over the streets towards the security dome.  The EMP had done its job well, and Tatiana's interference had confined most of the soldiers.  That meant that any sizable threats had to be dealt with before they could jeopardize the mission.  The mech burst into the hangar arm-mounted gun at the ready.  "I'd advise you to stand down, before this gets ugly."  His confidence wavered as he took in what he faced. While not an easy mech to down by any means, the Golden Chevalier was now face to face with a very tough looking opponent.  If the Station's defense force had a mech like this at their disposal, how could they have fallen so easily? Apparently, there was some gross incompetence on the part of the stations defense force.

The enemy pilot facing Razzly was scarcely able to block the shot with his shield. He was still out of range to strike back, and the distance was slowly shortening.

(GM: This is what happens when I don't use my GM dice... also, note that had Fernando initiated the sequence, it would have been instantaneous. The delay was due to the hacking attempt.)
------------------------------
Meanwhile, Ciel had reached the bottom of the ladder. The facility she entered was obviously a part of the stations substructure as naked catwalks and exposed wiring evidenced.  Steam was being emitted by some of the more damaged pipes, leaving the room she found herself in quite hot and humid. Had she not been so numb, she might have wondered how such a facility could stay a secret from her all these years. But she was numb, so she didn't wonder. The facility seemed to be in disrepair, a testament to how long ago it had been used, and parts of the catwalks had corroded because of the excess moisture.  Every once in a while, the facility shook, rocked by some distant explosion or some other tell-tale sign of battle.  By now, she had traversed most of the catwalks to an area that looked mostly intact. She had found her way to a large pod about the size of a tall humanoid, enclosed in 2 semi-circles by computer equipment and devices whose purpose she could only guess at.  The lighting in this enclosure was green, and the equipment showed a mech with various stats on screen. She couldn't understand what half of it meant, but it appeared that her inheritance had been her mothers old mech.  Off to the side, an old jumpsuit sat waiting, as if anticipating her arrival. In the central console, a large green button was flashing. She would later reflect on how she had pushed the button recklessly, not even knowing what it would do. In the moment however, she had only one thought on her mind.  Her eyes flashed with an intensity that said it all, "I'm going to use this mech to make those bastards pay!" She barely felt her hand smash the button.

Suddenly the Golden Chevalier burst through the roof of the the secure hangar, startling Tanr at first, just as it would any cat, but he quickly regained his composure as the pilot of the enemy mech advised him to stand down.  He obviously didn't know Tanr very well, although there was no real reason he should know him.  "You obviously have no idea who I am, nor would I expect you to, but I don't stand down when confronted with dirtbags who attack a neutral station."

"Don't worry Tanr me and Sarge will give our all to help you kick this guys butt."  And affirming Flares statement Sarge's HUD flashed what appeared to be a hand in the thumbs up position.

"Thanks guys."

"Now I would suggest we try out the system Commander Bob just finished up before he shipped us off for this station,"  with Sarge and Flares help the mech moved surprisingly well, quickly taking up a firing stance as if for a bazooka, suddenly a large energy cannon seemingly appeared out of nowhere.  Catching on quickly Tanr readied it's aim and pulled the trigger.

Helios chuckled a bit then stopped as it really hurt to do that, he pulled from the cargo pockets of his suit the E-Packs he had used for his last character. As his legs gave out and he hit the floor he opened his suit and rubbed the gel on any bruised and open wounds.

As the gel began to take effect he downed the last of it like a shot glass to take care of any internal wounds and just took some deep breaths as the cells in his body were repaired.

Within four minutes he stood up again and put the top of his suit back on before doing a few test punches and kicks, followed by an all out sprint for the military bay.

"Alright, mysterious lady, I have taken care of the issue and I am on my way to the military docks, if you could take care of the clamps on my Mech I'll have less to do before I start kicking ass."

"Master, you where about one punch away from death, are you sure you should be boasting?"

"Shut up, Ty."

Razzly took note of the escape pod as it left the mech she had originally come to defeat.  While a little surprised, she had bigger things to worry about.  If the melee type got too much closer, she'd be in some serious trouble.  Perhaps the other mech had a melee weapon she could commandeer.  Keeping an eye on the radar, she began to maneuver the Ice Princess over to the abandoned shell while taking aim at the attacker once more.  She initiated vats, this time targeting the mechs thrusters.  If it couldn't fly, it would not be as much of a problem. A short breathe, a click of the trigger, and another shot fired off another at the enemy mech.

The Golden Chevalier nearly took the hit from the attack, but Renault dodged with practiced efficiency. "You've got some power in that mech, but do you have the skill to fully utilize that power," Renault questioned as he opened fire.

"I don't expect you to understand, but we're not attacking this station unprovoked, nor do we intend to negatively impact the lives of those living here more than is necessary."

--------------------------------
Cali smiled, "you live up to your reputation, Black Knight.  I'm already working on the clamps, but I must once again urge you to hurry.  The soldiers stationed in the hangar are holding the line, but barely. The sniper I sent to help you is fighting off a mech from a secondary enemy force. It would appear that Ragnarok was hired to attack us, possibly as backup for the confederacy. Because of this dire threat, I'm throwing in a bonus for you. I've ordered one of my men to deliver a weapon to you, should you get your mech. I believe you'll find it unorthodox, but quite useful..."
------------------------------
The Ragnaro pilot was getting annoyed. The sniper was fighting as expected, which meant that he was at a disadvantage.  She took another shot at him and he was unable to dodge in time. The shot killed his thrusters. Unable to fly anymore, he was forced to make a hard landing. Unfortunately, his skill wasn't enough to save his mech from the crash, and it plowed into the streets below.

Helios realized that he might be running directly into a firefight between Ragnarok and the military, so he might want to take an alternative route.

"Ty, you should know what I'm going to ask you."

"Turn left at the next intersection and you should find an emergency exit to the hangar bay that I am opening as we speak, it will look like the wall in the center of the hall way on your right has opened up."

The solder turned at the next left as he was told and observed as the wall slid away for him, the tunnel was full of pipes and a red glow as it had emergency lighting, but the door closed behind him as a precaution.

"Alright Ty, I'll assume it's just a straight shot into the hangar bay at this point since the military is smart enough to keep very few turns in an emergency exit."

"You would be correct Master, I am opening the other door now."

Helios spotted the light at the end of the tunnel and he burst from the opening in the wall into the hangar, most of the men were firing through the main door against Ragnarok and those who weren't didn't really care about a man dressed in a pilot's outfit, it actually made sense for him to be here.

They needed back up so the idea of stopping him from an attempt to start the Mech wasn't even considered, Helios didn't stop till he was sitting in the pilot's chair.

"We are at ninety percent and rising, as soon as you confirm with the 'inside man' about the new weapon we can head out."

"Right, thanks Ty. Open a com-line to the person in question."

Razzly gave a moment of silence for the downed pilot. She wasn't happy about the results, but this was war, or at least battle.  People were going to die, and if she didn't do something, even more people could die.  It was the better of two evils.  "Cali. The pilot managed to rescue himself. I'm be on my way as soon as I collect the weapons from the enemy mech." With a bit of concentration, she opened a pocket dimension and tossed the sword inside. She would have liked to fit the gun in as well, but there simply was not enough room yet.

Tanr attempted to dodge the attack while putting up Sarge's forcefield, however the forcefield malfunctioned causing Sarge's movements to temporarily slow down.  Thus Sarge took the hit froim Renault's shot.  "Damn well that could have gone better"

"I feel I must tell you that not all of Sarge's systems are fully operational just yet, so they may work or they may not."

"Well that's good to know, any other suggestions?"

"Well you could always go close quarters using me, I am happy to report that I am fully operational."

"Now that's the kind of news I like to hear."

With that he fired Sarge's thrusters while igniting the Flare Spear in Sarge's right hand, heading in to slicethrough the Golden Chevaliers legs.

The comm channel opened up to reveal a rather well built man in a grey uniform, reminiscent of the security uniforms worn by station security a few decades ago. "You must be the pilot I was informed of.  We don't have a lot of time, so I'll cut this short.  Go to the blip on your radar.  You'll find a blue energy fluctuation there. Contact me when you arrive." The channel abruptly closed.
--------------------
"acknowledged.  Please hurry. Several Einherjar seem to be on their way here. You should arrive before they do, but I'd rather not take any chances," Cali replied. As her transmission ended, the Ice Princess began picking up distress signals from the various forces in the station.  From a security mech, "oh god! They're too fast, I can't....." the transmission ended.  From a rebel mech, "what the heck is that?  a black angel?!  Oh shit!  BACK UP. WE NEED BACK....."
From one of the Ragnarok mechs, "Commander Delta, unknown force is engaging us.  Be advised." The reply was near instantaneous, "I've encountered a few of them.  They seem to be nothing more than a rag-tag militia, they shall not impede our progress. Their presence here is nothing more than unfortunate.  Purge them with the rest."

Though the attack managed to connect, Sarge's armor absorbed the impact, reducing the damage to next to nothing.  In order to deal any significant damage to Sarge, more of the shots would have to connect.  As Sarge charged forth to attack with Flare, Golden Chevalier activated the arm mounted device, forming a blade made of crackling energy and blocked the attack.  He then pressed the attack and tried to surge forward with the blade raised for a lancing attack.
It was obvious that the weapon he was using was designed for an Armored Core, but had been adapted to the Chevalier.

"You're perfectly right about that. Such an operation is highly illegal, and we will pay the price for it.  Believe me, I would rather it not have come to this, but the activities planet-side can not be allowed to continue, and like it or not, the people of this station were in danger of getting involved either way. That's why we're doing everything in our power to reduce the bloodshed here on the station. The people living here have no idea what's going on, and just want to be left alone. They are not the ones we are here to fight!"

At first, the pod did nothing. A soft pop was all that acknowledged something had happened. A moment later, the pod began to dissolve, leaving a humanoid mech curled up in fetal position on the ground, as if it had hatched.  Attached to the back were 7 slender blades.  Each blade had a symbol of the Zodiac engraved on it. The symbols from left to right were: Virgo, Libra, Scorpio, an unknown symbol, Sagitarius, Capricorn, and Aquarius.  The mech itself looked vaguely female, with what appeared to be the control section in the torso.  Unsure of how to get inside, Ciel touched the control section and the outer shell dissolved, granting her access to the spherical interior. Once she had managed to clamber inside, the shell closed around her, and the interior became transparent so she could see outside.  "Great.  Where the heck is the control system," she muttered as she tried in vain to find the control yolk.

"Great, short and sweet and uninformative. Ty, I want to be jacked into every screen on this station, it's time the Black Knight reclaim his title and scare the shit out of his enemy."

"Understood Master, is this the only hacking you wish to do or should we destroy some valuable information?"

"No, the station is under our protection, I just want the enemy to know that as well, besides I wont be activating this till we receive the upgrade."

"Understood, we are now at green and may proceed into the intended location."

The Demon's Cascade sprung to life as the eyes began to glow a green color and the clamps released it, the Mech extended a leg and stepped forward into the station then began to hover as he made his way to the target location.

Renault's attack pierced Sarge's armor, but as Renault withdrew his lance after the attack he could see the wound start to close up by itself.

"Don't worry Tanr, Sarge here is equipped with what Commander Bob likes to call LG Cells, I'll give you the background later, but suffice to say, the mech can heal itself."

Tanr was shocked, he had never heard of such a thing.  This mech was truly top notch, at least in terms of concept.  He quickly got over his shock though and focused once more on the fight at hand.

"If the people living on this station just want to be left alone, and are not your true targets, then why attack?  Your logic makes no sense.  All you've likely done is made it so the people here now want to get involved if only to get back at you for destroying their peaceful lives."

In the meantime Sarge moved to a guard stance in order to better anticipate any future attacks from it's attacker.

Renault backed away, and disengaged his sword weapon. To leave it on for extended periods would utterly drain the mechs energy.  "Listen.  We need a staging area to mount an attack on the planet below.  At this very moment, the UPF is unearthing an ancient device created by a super-ancient alien race. This device holds unimaginable power, and it must not be allowed to fall into the wrong hands.  We have to destroy it. In order to do that, we need to commandeer this colony. The ends don't normally justify the means, but in this case they do. We're trying to make this as easy on the populace as we can. We sealed most of the soldiers in their barracks, and we used an emp to deactivate their mechs, so that we could take over the place with as little bloodshed as possible. Anyone who attacked the civilian populace was quickly dealt with and reigned in. Now that you know the situation, what will you do? Will you insist on fighting? Or will you back down? The balls in your court, soldier."

"That's standard procedure Black Knight. He's essentially doing a dead drop for you," stated Cali.  Meanwhile, she made it easier for Ty to "jack" into the screens. She even made a private comment to him, "ooh, it feels sooo good just letting you in," she said in a flirty voice. "All innuendo aside, you still haven't answered my question Ty," she continued  with a more professional tone.

"Please repeat the question mysterious female voice who I now suspect to be an AI..." Ty asked gently and pretended not to enjoy the innuendo.

Within Helios' head he realized that as long as the military didn't know who was in the mech he could support them against the Ragnarok but as soon as his image was spread out on the screens they would most likely change targets despite his loyalty... he would have to be careful with how he played this trump card.

"Yeah can we get a second opinion from a friendly within the station?  Without this guy detecting the transmission?"

"I don't know I can try.  But I don't know what kind of systems he's got in that mech."

As more and more transmissions ran through her cockpit, a growing sense of dread filled her.  So this was battle.  It was just as ugly as she had imagined it.  "I can't....I can't....but I've got to...."  The Ice Princess had arrived at the building. "Okay Cali, what now?"

"Good guess Ty, though not quite. I'm similar enough to an artificial intelligence that the term is apt enough, but I am actually the consciousness of an individual that was uploaded into a mainframe.  My designation is Computer Augmented Living Intelligence, or Cali for short. As for my question, I asked what you and your pilot plan on doing after all of this is over. "
--------------------------
Renault kept his weapons ready, but made no move to interfere.  "Sir, the pilot is trying to make a covert transmission." "Acknowledged." He changed the channel to speak with Tanr, "Take all the time you need, but I hope you realize that we control all the communications aboard this station at the moment.

(GM: he is telling the truth. He already said that the people aboard the station wouldn't know what's going on planetside, so even if you did get in contact with someone, they wouldn't be able to verify.

"I'm beginning the transfer sequence now.  Stay alert, the enemy is really close now.  There are three potential sniper points within transfer range. I've marked them on your map.  Location A is up on a building. You have the high ground, but little cover. Location B is lower amidst a grove of trees. You'd have reduced visibility, but excellent cover. Location C is on a shielded balcony that has moderate visibility and cover. Keep in mind, the building is painted white, which works well with your camouflage.

Ciel was confused by the mech's design. It had no control system that she could see, yet it seemed functional according to the computer equipment off to the side.  Suddenly, a giant crash resounded through the facility. Outside light framed the shape of an enemy mech scanning the area.  Upon seeing her mech, it began to approach and unsheathed a katana. In the left arm, the mech raised a shield to guard against any attacks.  I need to figure out how to activate this mech quickly, or else I'm done for!

"In all honesty, Cali... we will most likely return to bounty hunting and causing trouble for both military factions as we had before, only now with far more tricks and firepower within our hands. Why? are you considering joining us, because I may be able to upload you into the Demon's Cascade, though we will have to be really close to each other.... hint hint."

Helios was literally mowing down Ragnarok ground forces as he leaped over the military troops who cheered his arrival and simply fired his thrusters as he passed over the enemy leaving many on fire and giving the military time to make a few skillful shots. Helios turned a corner and the entire mech spun like a dancer as he slowed and began to walk the Demon's Cascade into the location his systems were informing him of.

"Honey, I'm home!" Helios called out over the speakers.

"My analysis shows that he is telling the truth, however I agree with you in that I highly disaprove of them attacking this station to accomplish their ends."

Damn he completely disliked this situation, on the one hand this guy and his group truly intended not to harm the people of the station, and thus per the guidelines of neutrality on which this station ran he was supposed to allow them to continue what they were doing unimpeded.  But on the other hand it made his blood boil that these guys were using the station for their own ends.

"You're lucky that I'm bound by the laws of neutrality or I would continue doing everything in my power to stop you, not to mention other reasons of which I'm not allowed to speak.  I will stand down only so long as no one on this station gets hurt, however should anyone not involved be hurt in any way my deal is off, agreed?"

Snipers were at their best when they had ample coverage and good visibility and it seemed like it had the best balance.  The difference between victory and defeat often boiled down to such choices, and she desperately hoped she picked the right one. To increase her odds, she took a moment to reload and adjust the sights on the sniper rifle, while depositing the sword from her pocket dimension nearby for ready access.  'I'm in position Cali.  Is it possible for you be my spotter?"

"good, you're at the spot."  The blue energy distortion suddenly gained focus. An image of some faraway place replaced the swirling blue. Standing in the center of the scene was a standard mech with a gray paint job. The mech spoke through its exterior into the portal.  "Alright, you're almost here. This weapon I've been tasked with delivering to you is used to create inter-dimensional doors, portals if you will. With it, you can easily move around the battlefield undetected. Step on through when you're ready to claim it."

Meanwhile Cali replied to Ty with a wink and a smile, "as tempting as that offer is, I'm afraid the processors on the Demons Cascade simply could not handle the both of us together. With any luck though, we'll be able to meet up again soon. I'm going to be off the grid shortly, but I'll be in touch. Later, handsome."

--------------------------
"Agreed. If you find any of my men attacking civilians, you have my full authorization to stop them by any means necessary. I've been working on the same task myself."

Without warning, a large metallic object plowed through the ceiling of the hangar and came to rest in a small crater it created on impact. Though hardly recognizable, it had at one time been a gundam with gray coloration. It was obvious from the damage that the mech was thoroughly destroyed. From the hole in the ceiling, another mech slowly floated down.  "I am commander Delta of Ragnarok and I am here to purge this station. You two look like worthy opponents so prepare yourselves!"

(GM: Eidolon is a mech designed for ranged combat. In its hands it wields twin lances, each of which is made from a mysterious ore that glows blue.  The main threat comes from its wings,  which are composed of two shoulder mounted, flip-up energy cannons that frame four smaller detachable aerial drone energy cannons. The paint job is almost solid black, with dark blue lines adding patterns reminiscent of tribal tattoos. )
--------------------------------------
"Performing as your spotter would be difficult during the download, but if I'm not mistaken, your mech has stealthed scout drones no? Why not use them. Crap, they're here!"
At that moment, two einherjar enter the ice princess' field of vision. The third is out of sight, but most likely close.  Unlike most Einherjar, the two Razzly could see were wielding gun weapons. As they enter the clearing, they open fire on the building housing Cali's mainframe. 
----------------------------
The katana wielding mech stopped right in front of Ciel's new mech.  He had explicit orders to eliminate all inhabitants of the station, and his sensors detected someone inside. He raised his sword to finish off the odd mech and plunged it downward.

Son of a bitch!  As if I need more of a headache.

"Well if this is one of your guys, I expect you to live up to what you've said."

"Flare get me any readings you can on this guy, preferably any points that might cause more damage than normal.  Sarge let's move to engage the enemy and distract him until Flare has the readings."

His HUD flashed a quick thumbs up and he immediately ignited his boosters skimming to the left and towards the enemy while igniting the Dragon Claws for the attack.

A portal weapon, the technology was something he had heard about through military channels but a working prototype had never been announced which usually meant that it was already built.

Helios didn't have to think about it for more than thirty seconds as the Mech stepped forward into the blue light to receive the new weapon.

Helios figured it would equip to the currently offline wrist barrels, but there was also a possibility of this weapon being a separate entity which meant he would be carrying extra weight.

"Let's get this thing up and running and then I'll start kicking some ass."

As the shots tore through the Eidolon, Delta swore profusely. The Eidolon came to rest on the hangar floor, seemingly unable to continue functioning.  "Damn it! Move!" As if in response, the sensors aboard Sarge and The Golden Chevalier could detect some sort of energy reaction within the reactor of the downed mech. 

---------------------------------------
The contact detached the portal gun from his mechs arm and handed it over to The Demon's Cascade. "The primary fire opens a blue portal. Secondary fires an orange one.  Entering a portal of one color will cause you to appear outside of the portal of the opposite color. Each time you fire it, you reset the portal of the color you fired, so be careful not to strand yourself.  It's the working prototype, so it requires quite a bit of energy to use.  Given time it can recharge, but you can only fire each portal type about three times before it will cease responding. The demonstration used up one of each, so you have two charges left. "

"Oh my, that seems like such a neat toy... mind if I play with it," asked a pilot whose voice was dripping with something, perhaps sarcasm, pity, or even outright lazyness.  The source of the voice was the mech Tanr had spotted earlier, standing no more than 300 yards away. Even though it was standing still, it looked as if it was moving fluidly. As with before, there were no visible weapon systems. "So? Whadda ya say?"
-------------------------------------------
The enemy mech raised the sword in the air to strike the unidentified mech down. As the arm came crashing down, Ciel crossed her arms and cringed back in anticipation of the blow that would slice the mech, and her, in half. To her surprise, the sound of blades clashing greeted her instead of a swift death.  Slowly she opened her eyes to find that the blades on the back had detached and formed a defensive fan to stop the enemies katana. The enemy stepped back, anticipating a counterattack that never came. "okay....how'd it do that," she wondered aloud.

"If he's not one of yours who the hell is he?...."  before Tanr could continue, Flare interrupted him.

"Uhh there appears to be some sort of large reaction going on in the enemy power core, it is highly unstable, which leads me to conclude that if it continues the mech will likely explode with disastrous results."

"Damn it, hey we've gotta get this guy off the station before he blows it to bits!"

"I have no idea who you are, or why you want this item, because it isn't really a weapon simply a mode of transportation, and not a very good one I might add as I only have two shots left." Helios holstered the weapon on his mech's left side and prepared himself for a potential battle.

"Ty, I want a full scan of this unknown person's mech, they may not look like a threat but I have yet to see any reason to trust him."

"Yes master." Ty began scanning the enemy for now while Helios considered his options.

"So, mind telling me who you are and why you are here?" The black knight asked the 'weaponless' pilot.

Razzly launched the stealthed scout drones and gave them simple instructions to canvas the area for the third attacker. She then attempted to activate the stealth capabilities of the mech, but all that happened was a loud snap as the stealth device fried itself. The smell of ionization indicated that the device had an electrical problem.  Razzly blushed, realizing that she had forgotten to fix that problem. Her reputation as a top notch mechanic would have been on the line had she returned the ice princess in this state. Unfortunately, it also meant she was about to enter battle without having it available. "No use crying over spilt milk Razzly," she muttered to herself.  Instead of dwelling on it, she took aim at one of the enemy mechs with her weapon.  "Let's make this count." She pulled the trigger hopefully shooting to disable the enemy mech.

As the shot left the barrel, she thought of how Jesse had probably done the same with this very mech countless times. Her thoughts then wandered to the kiss and another blush spread across her face.
"damn it, now is not the time to be thinking about that kiss! It's not like I had any choice in the matter!"

The mech pilot in the first mech had no idea what hit him as his mech shut down from the sniper rounds impact.  Through the viewpoint of one of her scout drones, Razzly was able to see a Liger with a dull grey paint job sneak up on the second mech and attack it with its Strike Laser Claw. The enemy mech however, did not seem too badly fazed. The third enemy was nowhere to be seen however.

---------------------------------
The mech standing before Helios and his contact shrugged in indifference.  "My my, aren't we forthcoming with information and questions today.  My interest in that device might be classified as....professional curiosity.  As for who I am and why I am here, my name is Silas Reaver, blood type A negative, weight 200 pounds (mostly muscle), height 6 foot, profession classified, and reason for being here: I want to have some fun," he said cheerfully.  "With the sudden appearance of Ragnarok and that unknown force, my team is getting quite pounded, so I assume we'll be pulling out reaaal soon. Before that though, I want to get a souvenir of my visit. How much do you want for that 'mode of transportation that isn't really all that good because you only have two shots left' ," the pilot asked conversationally. Meanwhile, Ty's scan was not turning out all that well as he kept getting interference. One thing he could determine though, was that the mech in front of him was built for speed.
--------------------------------------
The comm channel on the Eidolon opened up, "Delta, get out of there now! The system is too unstable for you to handle on your own!"
"I got it covered Vega."
"No you don't. Only I can stop that system now! Get out of there!"
Delta slammed his fist into the console closing the channel.  "You underestimate me Vega," he said dangerously.  Laboriously, Eidolon rose into the air and prepared to continue the fight. 
Renault contacted Tanr from his mech, "He's not going down without a fight, rookie.  Do you think you could keep him occupied for me? There's a chance I can drain the excess energy away safely, but I can't do it alone. "

"Sorry, but any government tech I manage to get my hands on, I usually try to keep, that way I can sell it back at an outrageous price then send it to them by dropping the item from orbit."

Helios smiled and then turned away heading out of the location and toward the battles, it was time he finally did something and drove these people out of this station.

"Ty, Can you transmit our illusion spell through the vid screens as well? I want to end this quickly."

"I can attempt to so, yes Master."

"Then here's what I want to do..." Helios explained his plan to Ty who began setting up the vid screens to display his illusion as well bringing up maps of the station and selecting the location with the highest battle activity.

"If there's one thing I can be it's a distraction.  Flare!  What would be my best option for distracting this guy?"

"Well it would take a minute to initiate, but if you switch to the tertiary reactor we would receive an impressive boost of speed, with a minor boost in power."

"Perfect speed is just what we need to pull off my plan, Sarge let's switch to the tertiary reactor."

All systems will shut off while reactors switch.  Process initializing in 3.....2.....1.

With that the entire mech shut down while the reactors switched.  After a minute power was restored, and Tanr felt an odd vibration coming from directly behind him as the tertiary reactor was fully activated.  He didn't know it yet but this was the reactor becoming attuned to his nervous system.  Okay lets do this.  Suddenly as if he were moving his own body Sarge lept into action as Tanr's thoughts were translated into action through the reactor.

"Hey you think you can take me?  Well come and get me asshole!"

Razzly was worried about the missing third mech, but it would be better to take out the other mech she COULD see first.  Careful not to bring the allied Liger into her firing arc, she took aim at the next mech and fired another shot to cripple it.

The second attacking mech went down without much challenge, However, the shot was all the third pilot needed to pinpoint Razzly's position from his vantage point above her.  With ruthless precision he launched an inferno missle from his shoulder mounted launcher, directly toward her position in the grove of trees.  True to its name, an inferno missle would cause a raging blaze wherever it landed. The missle itself has a high output that can even cause severe damage to mechs and vehicles.
(gm: yes undercover, I'm sending one of your own mechs against you to fight your signature Sniper Mech. )
-------------------------------
Renault was surprised when Sarge suddenly shut down without warning. "Great...Guess it's up to me." Seeing Sarge shut down, Eidolon turned his attention back to Renault. He was the one who did the most damage to him before anyway, so he was obviously the bigger threat in Delta's eyes.  The Eidolon Aimed one of its cannons at Renault and opened fire.

Perfect the enemy had done exactly what he had wanted, by turning his attention on Sarge Renault would hopefully have an easier time getting close enough to drain off that unstable energy.  Thanks to the tertiary reactors ability to quickly turn his thoughts to actions the boosters fired just in time and with enough force to move him out of the cannons path.

"Come on now, certainly you can do better than that!"

As he thought it, the rail cannon activated and a targeting reticle appeared on the HUD, he took aim and fired shooting for the enemy mechs arm.

As Renault neared the reactor a surge of the energy emanated from it and blasted the Golden Chevalier and Sarge away. Some of the residual energy started to become absorbed by the two mechs but did not seem to damage them in any way.
-----------
Meanwhile, Ciel was struggling against her opponent. She'd figured out that she could guide the blades with her hands, but the enemy was hiding behind his sword and shield. To further complicate things, she was finding it incredibly hard to concentrate on anything at all, and the mech was not responding well to her attempts to pilot it.  If she didn't defeat the enemy mech soon, she might lose.
---------------------------
(gm: most of the combat in the station has been resolved by The Forgotten and the station security forces with the help of you guys.  digitLninja, there is a battle going on near the stations primary power plant between the remnants of the Kurat Confederacies forces and a couple of Forgotten mechs.  You could get there really quickly. The forgotten are getting their asses handed to them in that location.)

Tanr was able to avoid the enemies final cannon shot, but while he was dodging, the unstable reactor released a final wave of energy catching him in mid-dodge and knocking him to the ground.  Some of the energy Sarge absorbed seeped into Tanr without him knowing it, but all that the energy he absorbed did served to better the connection between him and Sarge, while the LG cells absorbed the bulk of the energy wave.

Tanr pulled Sarge back to his feet, slowly and carefully in case any circuis were damaged.  He looked over the disabled enemy mech before turning to help Renault's mech to its feet.

"See now that is what happens when you attack this station.  Hey you alright, there?"

Sarge knelt down offering a hand to Renault.

The Black knight found the battlefield without any issues and immediately locked on target with all three enemy's making sure the two allies were well out of range before even thinking about attacking.

Every last hard wired monitor in the station suddenly sprung to life with the image of the Demon's Cascade's head, the eyes where black but then he began to speak.

"Well well well... it looks like someone chose the wrong station, and the wrong day to attack, because now you've managed to piss off a mass murderer. I had no idea that the same day I would receive the gift of an upgraded military Mech would also be the day I got to use it to destroy an entire unit of stupid people... but I guess I'm just lucky that way. You see, when the Black Knight has chosen a location as his home and someone decides to walk in, unannounced with gun's blazing and no concern for innocent lives, I become rather... what's the word... Infuriated. So now... I'm going to end you, Confederates. I recommend you kiss your asses good bye... heh heh heh heh haaaa HA HA HA HA HA!"

As the laugh echoed through the station the glass on every screen shattered and the Demon's Cascade's eyes turned on, then it stepped forward and emerged from the screen with flaming swords at the ready and an eerie black smoke hiding it's legs.

"Well done Master, I will keep this image up as long as I can"

"Thanks Ty, let's see what these enemies do now that they are scared shitless." Helios smiled as he stood battle ready as well under one of the screens in his current location.

The inferno missle collided with the grove of trees, instantly incinerating them and dealing massive damage to Razzly's sniper mech.  As the mech took aim to launch a salvo of missles at her, the projections all came on at once. 
"Well well well... it looks like someone chose the wrong station, and the wrong day to attack, because now you've managed to piss off a mass murderer. I had no idea that the same day I would receive the gift of an upgraded military Mech would also be the day I got to use it to destroy an entire unit of stupid people... but I guess I'm just lucky that way. You see, when the Black Knight has chosen a location as his home and someone decides to walk in, unannounced with gun's blazing and no concern for innocent lives, I become rather... what's the word... Infuriated. So now... I'm going to end you, Confederates. I recommend you kiss your asses good bye... heh heh heh heh haaaa HA HA HA HA HA!"

As the laugh echoed through the station the glass on every screen shattered and the Demon's Cascade's eyes turned on, then it stepped forward and emerged from the screen with flaming swords at the ready and an eerie black smoke hiding it's legs.
The response was all but unanimous.  The three confederate mechs pinning down the Personas(Forgotten troops)  fled the battle without a second thought.  The Ragnarok Mech attacking Razzly was harder to convince. He considered sticking around and continuing the fight against the sniper, especially since turning tail and running would get him ridiculed to no end by his comrades. However, with the presence of the Black Knight on station, and the loss of all his comrades (he'd been monitoring the radar as one by one, they were taken out, even Eidolon), he decided that discretion really was the better part of valor.  He fired a parting salvo at the sniper down below before retreating.

The Golden Chevalier took the offered hand and got back up.  "Thanks for the support back there. Hold on a sec, I'm getting a transmission." A few moments of silence followed as Renault received his new orders. "well now.  Looks like this station managed to repel both my forces and a group of attackers from Ragnarok. My superiors have ordered a full retreat.  Did the sacrifices of this operation mean NOTHING to them?! Without this station, there's no way we can field a large enough force to destroy the device, not to mention the impact we've had on the lives of the innocent people living here! Damn it!"
-------------------------------
Ciel blinked.  Everything felt weird and disconnected. As if she was in multiple places at once and nowhere at the same time.  Behind her, the wreckage of the enemy pilots mech was being dissolved by nanites. She couldn't remember what had happened. Moments before...it had been moments right? she had been losing. And now she was victorious but nothing felt right.  Two mechs emerged from the darkness in the facility...darkness, when had that happened?
"Ciel? We're here to retrieve you. Your adoptive family were members of the Forgotten, and they requested that in the event of their untimely deaths, we were to take you in if you so wished.  Do you want to come with us?"
Ciel tried to form the words that she would accept, but all that came out of her mouth was an exhausted sigh as her mech collapsed. In the cockpit, Ciel lay in an unconciousness akin to the void.  Around her, the mech dissolved into nothingness, leaving her alone on the ground. The forgotten mech on the right approached her and its pilot jumped out of the cockpit to retreive her. "Cali. We've acquired the girl. She's in bad shape and has rank 3 nanite contamination located primarily on the face. Please acknowledge."

"Heh, Cowards. They deserve to be destroyed... thankfully I don't have to do that just yet."

Helios waited until there were no enemy blips on the station maps and then shut down the image, none of the screens were cracked in any way unless they had been hit with battle damage.

"Well that was a very productive day for us Ty."

"I agree Master, however we are still wanted criminals, unless someone tells us otherwise I will begin to plot escape routes for us."

"Ah, not a bad idea at all Ty. I have a feeling we will have a need to escape after the military recuperates. Just cause we saved there asses doesn't mean they will be happy with my stealing of there property a second time."

Helios chuckled as he looked into one of his pockets and pulled out some food to munch on.

Razzly was jolted around as the missles impacted all around her mech, causing massive damage. After the smoke had cleared and she had laboriously moved to a more secure spot, she assessed the damage to the princess.  Most of her primary systems were now offline, and all the work she had done on the mech had been reversed and then some.   She was grateful the enemy mech had decided to turn tail, she would have been in way over her head had she been forced to face it one on one. "Cali, how is the upload going? "

'Believe me, I know this wasn't the best solution. Despite my protests, the chain of command decided that this was the best course of action. Furthermore, we did try to go through the right channels.  We sent a petition to the station, asking them to allow us to use the station as a staging area. As expected, they denied the request on the grounds of their neutrality.  We couldn't use the planet itself because we'd be sitting ducks for their forces as we set up.  Still, your recommendation may provide us a means of salvaging this mess."

----------------------------
On one of Razzly's video screens Cali formed an image of herself. "Actually, I just finished. I've given out orders to my forces and we're ready to rock.  Oh my, looks like you've sustained some damage. Since it seems we were victorious, why don't you head down to the location I marked on your map. That's the nearest entrance into Forgotten Territory. Once there, a couple of troops will escort you to a hangar where we'll fix your mech right up.
-------------------------
Cali also appeared befoire Helios and Ty on the video screen of the Demons Cascade.  "Wonderful job guys.  If you're interested, I'd like to extend an offer of asylum to you two.  We'll take you in, provide you with any repairs or upgrades you might need, as well as help you lie low for a while, at least until things cool down a bit. Sound good?"
----------------------------
Back aboard the Gilded Gifthorse, Silas was walking down a corridor towards his quarters.  He paused a moment at the door.  Nothing seemed out of place, yet something didn't quite feel right. He put his right hand on the palm-print scanner and the door opened with a near silent hiss.  As expected, the feline assailant lunged forward and he caught her face in his left hand, which then promptly directed her toward the floor.  The girl had excellent reflexes however, and landed in a headstand. From that position, she pushed off from the floor and caught Silas off guard between her legs.  Pinned underneath her in the hallway, the assailant purred. "reow, I gotcha!"
Silas tried to extricate himself from under her, to no avail. "Get offa me Cherise!"
Cherise just purred, "and why would I do that. I like sitting in your lap!"
Silas sighed. It had been like this since the two of them had met.  Cherise was the same species as Tanr, except with blue hair instead of green.  For whatever reason, she seemed to enjoy acting like a stereotypical neko from those trashy anime cartoons that, to this day, still aired back on Earth. The consummate flirt, she wore provocative clothing that emphasized her body in all the best ways. For those with a fetish for her species or furries in general, she made a habit of teasing them to no end, yet never "putting out".  When asked about that behavior, she simply replied, "I dunno, I'm just having fun, mew." For whatever reason, Cherise seemed attached to Silas.  He had tried many times over the years to tell her he disliked her immensely, but she never seemed put off or upset. In fact, she seemed to redouble her efforts to "tame" him. Lately, she'd made it a habit of ambushing him whenever he opened the door to his quarters. 15 locks later, he finally gave up trying to keep her out. The girl was determined to make him miserable, so he might as well just live with it.
"Cherise, will you please get off of me?"
"let meow think about it....nya I don't think so."

"Well well, thank you very much. Looks like we can stop scanning for escape routes, which is a total lie, Ty I want those routes saved for future reference and for now let's take the Demon's Cascade to a public dock to see if we can unlock some of those weapons you have locked down."

"As you wish Master, and thank you for your help Cali."

Helios smiled under his helmet as he began to walk to the nearest public Mech bay wondering if he would have to launch out of the station and fly back inside to lock in correctly or if things would be fine from this side.

The Black Knight was back in business and he had begun to do some research into the weapons of his new mech discovering some weapons that were locked down and what it would take to get them operational again.

"I know that going through legal lines is very difficult but I shall do my best the next time you submit your request, so simply send me a message when you initiate a request again and I ill hold up my end.  For now I bid you farewell, looks like I've got to clean up the lab that came with this mech now."

He waited to begin working on the lab until Renault had pulled out.  Then once he was gone he got to work with Sarge's help for some of the heavier equipment.  Most of the equipment had been completely trashed so he would most likely haveto submit a requisition order for replacements.  While he worked on the lab he asked Flare to relay Commander Bob's full instructions.

"Hello Tanr, as you already know my name is Bob a commander in a military organization some distance from most of the organizations you are familiar with, however we too also participate in the neutrality act that brought about the station you have been living and training on.  I have been developing Sarge and Flare for quite some time now, using technology from various planets and combining them together.  Unfortunately I seem to have reached the point where I can no longer make any advances in my work on the two.  This is I believe due to my lack of training as a pilot, which is where you come in.  I pulled your class record and found you to be the perfect pilot to take over the rest of the development process.  So what I have assigned you to do is to send me the diagnostics reports on both Sarge and Flare from time to time, don't worry Flare has been instructed to keep diagnostics running at all times and to record and store them for easy access.  Upon receipt of each set of diagnostics I shall look them over and send you back a fine-tuning report of suggestions to improve performance of the system.  If you think of any modifications you are welcome to incorporate them so long as you send a separate diagnostic report upon modification.  Thank you for your cooperation and good luck out there pilot!"

Razzly maneuvered her mech towards the designated coordinates in silence. She had become a mechanic to avoid getting into armed conflicts like this. At least she had saved a few lives today, both innocent and otherwise.  That didn't change the fact that a pilot had died by her hand today.  Some might consider that a victory. Several mechs disabled, and only one death. Some might consider her too soft. She was not one of those people. She had ended one too many lives today. When would they ever learn? Still in silence, the ice princess limped to its escorts.

The guards, as promised moved to help the damaged princess to one of the Forgotten hangars, where they quickly set about getting the necessary tools to repair the mech.

------------------------
As it so turned out, Helios was able to get into one of the mech bays from the inside.  "You're welcome guys.  Go ahead and take it easy, you've earned a rest. My network's still down from the attack, so I'm going to be busy getting it up and running, but if you need anything please let me know."

Helios parked the Demon's Cascade and as he emerged from the cockpit, with Ty once again linked to his suits computer, the both began work on unlocking two of the main components that the military had locked down for 'safety reasons' this was going to be a long process but when they were finished they would eventually have some fire power and the best camouflage equipment known to man working for them, it was going to be a busy couple of days but it would be worth it in the long run.

Once Tanr and Sarge finished cleaning up the hangar, Tanr prepared to make his first diagnostics report to Bob.

"Flare, could you transfer all saved diagnostics from that last fiasco to the computer here so I can encrypt them and send them to Bob?"

"No problem the transfer will finish in a few minutes."

Once the transfer finished Tanr added an attachment basically detailing how he felt Sarge's performance had been and then encyrpted it to the highest level he could before sending it off to Bob.  It would probably take the Commander about a day to decrypt and view the report, so for the time being Tanr headed off to check on the status of the rest of the station, being sure to grab his new clearance badge from the guard so he wouldn't have to bother with paperwork to get into the hangar in the future.

Razzly opened the hatch and disconnected her pip-girl.  After getting down from her mech, she appraised it with trained eyes. She checked to make sure no one was watching when she addressed the mech itself. "Damn, that asshole did a number on you old girl.  Don't worry, I'll get you fixed up better than ever. You're mine now, so I need to keep you in good condition." She pulled out her trusty weapon/tool, her hand made wrench that her father had given her many years ago, when he was still alive.  She pushed aside the memories of him as she tuned the diagnostics of the pip girl to show her the areas of the mech that needed the most work.  It wasn't that she didn't care for her memories, she simply felt closer to him working on machinery than being lost in idle memories.

(Even though not everyone has posted that they're ready, I'm continuing to the next day since that individual hasn't posted in a week or two.)
-----------------------------------
0600, The Next Day.

Delta woke with a start.  The room he awoke in was painted a dull grey and featured a toilet, the bed he was on, and a tiny window with wrought iron bars preventing escape.  The door leading into the room had no door knob or any obvious way of opening it from the inside.  A small slat at the bottom allowed for a tray of food to be pushed through periodically.
"So I'm in a cell. Great."
"You're a real Einstein aint ya," boomed a voice from a speaker hidden somewhere in the room. 
If they can hear what I say, they can probably see what I'm doing too. I have to plan my escape carefully if I'm going to get out of here without letting them in on the plan.

-------------------------------------
Elsewhere in a facility run by The Forgotten, a man in a doctors coat knocked gently on the door before entering.  Gently sleeping in a hospital bed was Ciel.  She had been brought in after last nights incidents suffering from severe nanite contamination.  She had been hooked up to all sorts of machines pumping her full of medicine and anti-nanite agents to help her body resist the foreign agents. After an initial analysis of the machines, it was determined that the nanites had originated from the mech she had been piloting before and were attempting to synchronize her to the machine as a sort of interface. When the danger had passed, they had detached her from the machines and placed her in the general in-patient quad.  After the doctor took her vitals, he left.  Her inability to wake up was not a side effect of the medicine or the nanites, but rather her species.  Although it was unusual for one so young to experience the special trance  Animus went through, it wasn't unheard of in highly stressful and dangerous circumstances.  The doctor just hoped she was strong enough to survive the process, as a good number of Animus never survived the forming of their soul.
--------------------------------------
Renault walked into one of the spartan conference rooms in the Kurat Confederacies Charley Base, a small militarized facility built into the porous rocks of an asteroid in Taya's asteroid belt. The facility served as a training center for Confederacy troops wishing to become ace-pilots. 
Renault and his forces had been instructed to retreat to this facility in the event of a botched mission, and retreat they had.  While still close to Einstein station, it had just enough distance to serve as a rally point without being obvious to any prying eyes. 

Seeing that the conference room was deserted, Renault took his seat at the table.  Moments later, the door hissed open as a high-ranking officer flanked by two armed men entered the room. From his position, Renault could see that two guards had been stationed outside the room. The two armed men who entered with the officer took posts at either side of the door as the officer sat directly across from Renault.  "So, you epically screwed up that mission Captain. Care to explain what happened?"
Renault saluted before responding, "yes sir.  Initially our operation went off without a hitch. We had adequate men to accomplish our goal given the situation we engineered. However, two unknown forces appeared and engaged us.  Our team was not equipped to handle a significant armed force, as we were expecting to disable any strong resistance with the EMP. The other two forces caught us completely off guard and we were spread too thin to mount a counter offensive. I managed to obtain visual records of the enemies we encountered.  By my estimation, the first force is a group of mercenaries from Ragnarok. Curiously, they did not seem to be on the colonies side, as they attacked anything they met indiscriminately.  The second group, I'm not so sure about. If I were to venture a guess, I'd say they were a hidden military organization based within the colony itself.  The presence of such an organization would throw the question of Einstein Stations neutrality into question."

The seated officer took in Renaults statements with calm resolve. "Speaking of Einstein Stations neutrality, you are aware that attacking such a 'neutral' station has impacted us greatly, especially given the consequences of your failure to secure the station."
Renault became visibly nervous. "Yes sir."
The officer continued, a chill air about him. "Then you must surely understand why you are under arrest for treason?"
"Excuse me sir?"
"Did I stutter? For attacking a neutral station without proper authorization, you are hereby placed under arrest for the crime of grand treason. The penalty for which is death."
"Sir, I was acting under orders. In fact, here they are!"
Renault reached into his uniform and pulled out a sheaf of documents detailing yesterdays mission. He handed them to the officer across from him, in the hopes of saving himself.
"Interesting," commented the officer as he took out a cigar, lit it up with a lighter, and then took a nice drag of it, blowing the smoke out all over the paper and into Renaults face.  "So you had the orders on your person. No wonder we couldn't find it in your quarters. Unfortunately, if we are to frame you for treason, such orders can never have existed." He ignited the lighter and brought the papers into the flame.  "So sorry.  You must understand that The Confederacy can't afford to let it be known that we sanctioned such an attack. You're going to have to take the fall for us. Now are you going to come quietly, or are we going to have to shoot you here, for resisting arrest?"

Tanr woke up the next day, surprisingly he hadn't done much after the attack just walked around and took a look at some of the damage caused.  He decided to start off the day by going up to the command center, to check if there was anything he could help with.  Since this wasn't a matter for the commander of the station he didn't bother disturbing her, he simply went up to the station AI screen and submitted a help query, of course while he was doing that something had been flashing at the corner of the screen, just the station logo, but the repetition of flashes caught his attention and he couldn't help but start batting gently at the logo on the screen while the query was processed.

A minute later the query came back witha list of repair jobs that needed doing thanks to yesterdays events.  He decided on helping out in the mech bay where he had seen the odd old guy and the girl mechanic yesterday morning.  When he arrived he went about helping with the repairs as best as he could.

Helios finally relaxed on one of the cot's in the hanger after a full twelve hours of over night work, but in exchange for the hard work he now had everything figured out.

The Black Knight had rewired and hacked into the systems of the Demon's Cascade in order open up some of the weapons systems and he had done all he could, managing to get both the Active Camo online and the EMP Cannon.

Helios was quite surprised the military equipped this Mech with an EMP Cannon when they knew full well he would be stealing it back from them, but then Ty explained the consequences of using the EMP Cannon and everything became clear.

They wanted him to have a last resort something powerful enough to destroy his enemies so he would never get rid of it but dangerous enough to leave him helpless on the battlefield for a long period of time, time enough for them to capture him.

Once the Cannon was operational he began setting up some protection for his mech, some EMP shielding so he wouldn't lose environmental controls after use of the weapon, and some dampeners so he would have far less time being frozen then they would have expected, though it was still far to long to remain motionless.

After hours of work and no success on the other weapons, which he didn't even know what they are, he decided he had made enough progress to justify some sleep and plopped down on the cot not ten feet away from his mech.

Razzly woke up to the din of hangar noise.  Bleary eyed, she surveyed her surroundings, and found much to her surprise, she had been covered with a blanket by one of the techs. She must have fallen asleep working on the Princess. A small sense of pride welled inside her as she realized her wrench was still in hand, and the ice princess was along the road to recovery. Despite her progress, some repairs were still necessary, namely the stealth device which she had inadvertently fried yesterday and some of the more scorched areas of the hull. There was also the matter of the removed weaponry.  Though the princess had all of her standard equipment already, there were several upgrades she had worked on in the past which were no longer present. One such upgrade was the guided missile launcher. Another was a flight module. The jump jets had been replaced with a more commercial model that had less umph than the military grade version the princess SHOULD be using.  Furthermore, the tank treads on the feet, which were used for added mobility and speed on the ground had been replaced with high end wheels.  She would have replaced the treads anyway, but the wheels were inadequate as well.  Out of boredom she had designed the blueprints for a custom part that would enable fast transit on any terrain without loss of stability or control, similar to a tank tread but lacked the resources to design the part. Perhaps the Forgotten would help her out on that end? She gingerly folded the blanket and placed in on a bench next to her mechs work area before flagging down one of the nearby mechanics. When he approached she asked, "hey, who would I talk to about getting some additional parts for my mech, and is there a shower facility nearby?"

A security camera focused in on Tanr as he went about the hangar helping people out.

As Helios slept, Cali projected herself for Ty.  "Hey. Do you have a moment?"

The tech grinned, "if you're looking for parts, I'm your man.  If you're looking for a shower, the womens barracks are just down that corridor.  I've been instructed to give you free reign of this sector, since you helped us out.  Just remember that we are trying to stay low-key here, so if you wish to leave, please let one of us know and we'll accompany you to a discrete exit.

As Tanr made his way through the hangar helping out where he could he came across Razzly speaking with the technician.  He overheard her asking for parts and figured he should offer to help with what the technician couldn't procure, if he was able to of course.

"Sorry I was passing by and couldn't help but overhear.  You say you need some parts?  If possible I'd like to see if I can't help procure those parts which your friend may be unable to get for you, as well as offer my services helping you out with repairs if you'd like, after all there's nothing much I can do with my mech till I hear from my superior."

Although she felt a possessive pride in The Princess, Razzly decided that an extra mechanic or two couldn't hurt. "Alright, sure. I could use some help.  The Ice Princess is currently under-equipped.  Normally, she'd have a few extra weapons and systems. Her equipment was probably removed when the military sold her. Unfortunately, I'm not in any military organization so getting the proper authorization might be a bit tricky." She shrugged. "anyway, my name's Razzly."

"The name's Tanr, Tanr Wyrddemon, I'm with the military in general, with a classified mission in the background.  Like I said anything the mechanics here can't get you I'll be glad to look into getting."  He took a look up at the Ice Princess, "Ice Princess what an appropriate name she carries a sort of cold, yet royal aura about her.  OOOOO shiny!"  Tanr had caught sight of something sparkling on the mechs head and had immediately started pouncing his way up to look closer at it.

A knock on the conferrence room door startled all within. "I thought I told you guys no interruptions!" shouted the officer, his gun now pointed at Renault.  The door opened with a hiss and Silas stepped through.  "Oh, so sorry, I thought this room was unoccupied. It's such a nice place to take a quick nap on the job," he said with an apologetic grin.  Behind him, in the hallway, the two guards that had been stationed outside collapsed.
The two guards inside the conference room moved to take Silas out, but stopped dead in their tracks. Rope darts extended out of Silas' suit sleeves, into their necks.  The soldiers had never even had the chance to dodge they had come so quickly.  Silas pulled the rope darts back and caught them expertly in his hands, "Oops. My bad, darn combat reflexes," he said with another apologetic grin and a formal bow. 
The seated officer rose from his seat and moved to aim his gun. The poor officer was too slow as Cherise lunged over the still bowing Silas, rolled on the floor toward the officer, did a headstand and hooked her legs around his neck. The officer had a moment to register what was happening before Cherise, with amazing flexibility and strength, threw him into the opposite wall behind Silas.  The officer crumpled to the floor, behind Silas as he rose from his bow. 
Renault, not missing a beat rounded the table and collected one of the guards weapons while Cherise and Silas moved the guards and officer into the room. "Thanks guys, but how'd you know?"
Silas spoke without turning, "as soon as you left for the debriefing, they locked down the Gilded Gifthorse. I figured they would do something like this, so I slipped out and came to get you.  If all is going according to plan, the Gifthorse should have freed itself from its moorings and exited the hangar.  The idea is that we're going to hijack some mechs and rejoin them in the asteroid field before fleeing to somewhere else. We're obviously going to take the fall either way, so we might as well make ourselves scarce.  Is that acceptable captain?"
"Sounds like a plan. Let's go guys."
-----------------------------------------
 The head mechanic watched Tanr's antics with mild amusement. "He sure is an interesting one alright. Anyway, what parts are you looking for? We won't worry about the authorization, though you might want to talk with Cali about getting a permit for those weapons."
------------------------------
Cali waited a moment before she spoke, looking off into the distance.  After a few moments she spoke, "You know, I used to be a human being.  I suffered from an incurable illness that left my body ravaged and feeble.  At about the same time, they had developed a technology that would transfer a persons consciousness and personality onto a suitable AI matrix.  Since my body was becoming weaker and weaker, I volunteered myself for the procedure, as a test subject.  The results went beyond expectations, and I was able to become something akin to an AI. And yet, I feel as if somethings missing. Ty, do you ever wish you could leave the Demon's Cascade?

"Hmm, that is a difficult question to answer, my creation was quite different."

"The Demon's Cascade was a co-creation of Space Pirates, Assassin Guilds, and the Military. It was designed to be the pinnacle of Spec Ops Mecha."

"I was a simple observation unit created by the Assassins and Pirates to watch the cascade so the military couldn't get the drop on them. However I was also to carefully watch and learn the programs of the Mech and force a take over should something go wrong."

"The result of my take over of the Military A.I. created me, I was more loyal to the Pirates and Assassins but with the superior military intelligence and access to any and all military systems, plus in my creation something strange happened... something unexplainable that allowed me to access the black flames of hell, almost mystical."

"Helios was the only one who felt right in my cockpit, I was barely paying attention when he entered the Cascade as I had simply ignored any cadet who entered me but then his hands took the controls we both felt something, and I immediately powered up."

At the beeping of his wristcomm Tanr snapped out of his fascination with the shiny thing he had caught sight of.  He took a look at the message that had arrived.  It was titled simply "Welcome", and the sender seemed to be one "Chipmunk".

"Well who the hell could that be, guess I better take a closer look."  He mumbled aloud to himself.

So he looked at the first line of the message, which said 'Thanks for the quickness in your first report.'  After that he immediately knew it was from the Commander, that meant the next mod suggestions had arrived.  This took priority over his relaxation, which meant he better hurry back to Sarge's hangar.  He quickly jumped down off the Ice Princess and landed deftly in front of Razzly.

"Sorry to show up and run, but I've received an urgent message.  If you should like to continue our conversation or should you ever need aide please don't hesitate to contact me," he handed her a slip of paper with a comm-code on it that would put her through to him directly, "Farewell ma'am!"

He went bounding away again this time on all fours.

Razzly shrugged as the odd soldier ran off to tend to his urgent message.  "Okay, so the Ice Princess is supposed to be more than a sniper mech.  Originally, she was equipped with a long range, laser guided missile launcher, she had a dimensional pocket for storing excess weapons, and her cloaking abilities were working. She also had a module that would allow for a transformation into a jet/mech hybrid at one point, for long distance travel. At the moment, I'm still trying to fix the cloaking emitter which was damaged in a previous battle before I obtained her."

All around her was FIRE. The ground was on FIRE, the forest and all the trees were on FIRE, the animals were on FIRE, the air itself was FIRE.  The sun beamed down on the devastation with an eerie red glow, as if it too was on FIRE, as if FIRE could be on FIRE. Rain was falling from the burning dark clouds hanging overhead in patches, but even the rain seemed as if it was on FIRE, a perception that was further reinforced by how it scalded her naked skin. Instead of putting out the FIRE, it only seemed to make it spread. In short, this was a really pleasant place to be. The girl takes stock of her surroundings.  There is no shelter from the FIRE. No refuge from the devastation. No safety from the FIRE. Quite simply, the only thing with her was THE FIRE.

---------------------------------
Cali listens intently to Ty as he describes his creation and his mystical abilities. Puzzled by the information, she ponders it for a few moments before speaking, "I've never heard of an AI quite like you. You and I might have more in common than I first thought.  I mean, it'd be very difficult to program an AI to be able to do what you can do, almost bordering on the impossible.  And yet, I get the feeling you and your pilot were meant to be together. Sort of like fate or destiny."
----------------------------------
The trio rushed down the corridor toward the hangar, catching the eye of more than a few of the cadets as they went about their business. "It would seem that the higher ups have kept your arrest a secret for the moment," Cherise hissed, her danger sense went on high alert and her tail puffed out.  Moments later an armed soldier rounded the bend of an intersecting corridor and attempted to take her out with the butt of his gun. Too late, he realized she had gone low and was aiming a strong punch to the gut.  The man flew into one of the walls of the corridor, winded and unable to fight. "Come on, we don't have time to dawdle Cherise," Silas called over his shoulder, not having stopped for her. Cherise easily made up the distance with her cat-like agility.  At another intersection, a trio of armed guards appeared and aimed their weapons at the fugitives. Alarms started blaring as Renault fired on them, causing them to take cover.  Silas slammed a fist into a control panel and the intersection was sealed off by a bulkhead. He then smashed the controls to prevent them from being opened anytime soon.  The three didn't stop for a second as they rushed to the hangar, only to find it had been sealed because of the lockdown. " We need to get to R&D," Renault decided.
-------------------------
 The head mechanic does a mental check of the list of parts Razzly requested before saying, "I think we can get you those parts. I'll see what I can do.  It might take me a while, but you're more than welcome to use the shower facilities if you'd like." He fails to hide the expression on his face as he imagines Razzly in the shower, but he quickly turns and sets about procuring the parts she needed, so as not to let on how much she turned him on.

Tanr relatively quickly made his way back to Sarge's hangar, which was looking much better.  Several crates had also arrived in his absence, both replacements for the equipment destroyed during the battle, as well as spare parts required for the many tune-ups Tanr had to make on Sarge.

"Good job cleaning the place up guys," he directed at Sarge and Flare, "place looks pretty much brand new, almost.  I'll get the replacement equipment unpacked here then I'll need you guys to move it into place so I can get it set up.  In the meantime Flare I'm sending you Commander Bob's encrypted tune-up list, I want you to decrypt it and be ready to go down the list as I make the changes."

"You got it boss."

With that they continued cleaning up the hangar before working on the performance tune-ups.

"I am convinced that there was something spiritual involved in my creation, but I have no idea what, why or how it worked. My being may be electronic but I have never left the confines of the Demons Cascade except for hacking purposes but then I'm still within my body just extending my signals.

Razzly takes note of the mans reaction and is torn between disgust and arousal. On the one hand, it felt good that someone was taking notice of her despite her grimy, oil-smudged, and greasy appearance, the trademark of a mechanic who's been elbow deep in machinery guts. On the other hand she did not appreciate being oggled by a stranger.  At least he seemed to be embarrassed about his arousal, otherwise he would have flaunted it.  She shook her head to clear it of such notions. Now wasn't the time to get all steamy eyed like a teenage schoolgirl. Now was the time to wash up and recuperate. She hadn't forgotten how she felt about the battle last night, even if she was trying to upgrade her mech. Perhaps a hot, steamy shower alone would be a good way to clear her head.  Before she realized it, she was in the womens barracks and removing her clothes.

The girl wanders aimlessly through the FIRE.  She doubles back on her tracks several times as the FIRE blocks her path.  There is no relief in sight, no escape at all.  Only the FIRE.  As she doubles back for the umpteenth time, her path is fully blocked as she becomes surrounded by the FIRE.  Wracked by utter despair, she sinks to her knees, the scattered pine needles searing the naked skin of her legs, the flames licking her hair and singing it.  "What am I supposed to do," she rasps, unable to comprehend what is going on as tears leave wet trails down her sooty face.
--------------------------------
DigitlNinja:
Cali shrugs. "I wouldn't mind a body of my own as well, but unfortunately there aren't any on this station. I can't really count the Ice Princess as a body, since I'd still be confined to the mech, and being inside her limits my capabilities....hmmm. Perhaps I could persuade Razzly to let my mechanics add some equipment to her precious mech."

Cmpuncle:
As you go about your business in the hangar, a man in uniform walks in with a box in his hands.  He approaches you with a smile. "Might you be Tanr Wyrddemon?"

Undercover:
As you remove your clothes, another woman walks in and opens her locker before doing the same. She glances your way in smiles, a friendly greeting, before returning her attention to herself.

( OOC: As much as I'd enjoy a graphic description of you showering, we should keep the shower posts PG-13.  I don't feel like getting this RP reclassified. ;) )
---------------------------------------
"R&D, we don't have time captain!"
Renault dons a devilish grin as he sprints down the corridor, "ah, but it will be the quickest getaway!  Earlier this morning, I heard a few techs talking about how the R&D bulkheads were broken and in need of maintenance. They weren't scheduled to be repaired for another few days.  Since R&D is a singular unit, their private hangar for the experimental weaponry is also open.  If we lack the means of getting in this hangar, why not take from the other one, eh?"
Silas looks at Renault in disbelief before donning his own groin, "why not. If they want to frame us for their fuckup, we'll just take an experimental mech or two as our severance package! I like your style."
Renault does a partial shrug with just his shoulders, "well, I got the idea from the Black Knight. Rumor has it he was protecting that station."
"Isss thiss the time for such idle chit chat," Cherise hisses. Moments later, gunfire pelts the corridor walls where they were moments before.  "Shit, no bulkhead this time," spits Renault.  Something drops from Silas' coat, "Keep running, our welcome is becoming more over-stayed by the second."

The mans voice carries rather well in the hangar, not to mention Tanr's ears could hear a whisper from several yards away anyway.  Upon hearing this interruption, Tanr seems to almost suddenly appear right in front of the man.  "Why yes I am, ooo is that for me?"  As he notices the box he becomes rather fixated on it, his curiosity getting the better of him.

(OOC: Aw.... I was having fun teasing you!)
Razzly enters the shower facility and quickly finds an unoccupied spot with which to freshen up. She turned the water on as hot as she could handle and felt the tension and grime just slip away.  As she cleaned herself off, her mind wandered over various thoughts and questions. While she hated fighting and disliked war, hadn't she been requesting upgrades and enhancing her new mech?  She couldn't quite grasp why she was contradicting her own values. At her feet lay a puddle and she saw her reflection in it, looking back at her as if seeing into her soul. She imagined the reflection speaking to her It's because you know that you'll have to fight someday.  You want to preserve life as much as possible, but that simply isn't doable all the time.  When you can't save everyone, you can only settle for saving a select few, and you want to be equipped to save as many as you can.
She turned off the water and grabbed a towel, drying herself off. The shower had done a lot to ease her mind and cleanse her body.

The trio burst into the R&D section of the base and are greeted by gunfire from an assembled squad that's dug in further down the hall.  They dive behind the cover of two alcoves on either side of the hallway.  Silas rummages around in his pockets and tosses several metal spheres into the hallway. A few of the troops fire at the spheres, but nothing happens. The spheres begin rolling toward the assembled group and pick up speed.  As they near the group, the spheres unfurl into small spider-like drones that lunge into the group, latching on to the soldiers.  As the soldiers try to tear them off, they emit a gas which causes the troops to collapse where they stand. 
"What were those?"
"Drone mites. Infiltration tools for incapacitating individuals. The gas dissapates in air quickly, but lasts long enough to knock a grown man out cold. We should be clear."
The trio once again pushes down the hallway without meeting any more trouble.

 "It's your fault you know," an indistinct shadow says from within the fire.
"You started this fire," says another shadow
"Because of you, this once beautiful place is tarnished," says the first
"You did this," says the second.
"Simmer down. There is still hope for her and this place yet," a third announces
"Wha? Who are you," the girl asks, confusion replacing her fear. "How did I get here? Where am I? Why am I naked?!"
The only reply is silence as the shadows depart.

With the hand clamping over her mouth, she wasn't able to respond, so she just nodded her head. The fact that she was currently naked with a gun at her back didn't bode well. For now though, her best option would be to cooperate with the unknown assailant.

You're going to put on your clothes, SLOWLY. Before you put on anything though, you will show it to me, so I know there are no concealed weapons. You will empty out any pockets and kick the items away from you. Now throw the towel over there. I hate to do this to you, honestly I do, cooperate with me and this will all be over soon. Do it now."

Cherise and Silas enter the hangar, unimpeded. Two mechs stand awaiting an able pilot on the ground level.  One mech was obviously a two seater, and the other for a single occupant.  "I like the looks of the big one," Silas comments. Cherise grins, "Ooh. I call co-pilot seat with you!"
The two of them run down the catwalk to the open cockpit and jump inside, closing the hatch and initiating the startup sequence. [ Can you guys read me?]
"Loud and clear Captain."
[ Good. I'm opening the hangar bay doors. Prepare for anything. I'll be down shortly to claim the other mech. Sending telemetry to the mechs...now. Out ]
Sure enough, the doors opened, revealing an air-tight field keeping the atmosphere within the hangar and the cold wastes of space out.  Navigational data began scrolling across Cherise' console.  "Looks like all we have to worry about are the Asteroids."
Silas shook his head, 'no, that would be too easy. More likely, they're using the asteroids to masque their signatures, As soon as we exit, they'll ambush us. Bring all weapons online, and set the shields to 50%. "
"This mech doesn't have shields Silas."
"What? Well whatever, shields are for novices that can't dodge. "

Renault enters the hangar bay, but the hangar bay doors begin to close just as he enters the cockpit of the other mech. [Get out there. I'll blast my way out if I have to. ]
"But Captain!"
"Roger that. See you on the other side Renault."
[Back at ya Silas. Thanks again for the assist. When we get back to the gifthorse, the drinks are on me. ]
"Silas?!"
Silas resolutely engages the mechs thrusters and blasts through the still open doors seconds before they fully close. As expected, the mech is immediately pounded by enemy fire.

"Oh sorry about the firewalls, never can be too careful."  He disengaged the comm device from Sarge's system, and switched the transmission over to a headset so he could continue working on Sarge while talking.  "Go ahead I'm gonna keep working while you talk."

Razzly complied with the womans demands and tosses the towel to the side.  She grabs her panties and displays them, "my underwear. No weapons in them, at least not yet," she says with subtle innuendo. She quickly puts them on, not happy to be watched dressing. "and here's the little pink bra I wear," she says, once again showing off her underwear before putting it on. If the womans goal was to humiliate her, it was working.

Nothing disturbs the quiet tranquility of the empty hangar Helios is in, that is, until his wristcomm begins to beep.

Undercover:
The woman behind Razzly seems to be getting impatient. "Alright, next is your uniform. empty it out first." She seems to be under the impression that you are a soldier.  "What the, what's going on?!"
The woman turns to see a soldier exit out of the showers. It's the woman who greeted Razzly before. She raises her gun to fire at the woman, who realizing the danger starts to run behind cover.

"Actually, I was hoping you'd tell us what happened in the security dome last night. Thanks to you, we were able to capture the enemy pilot and we're analyzing the remnants of his mech right now. I figure you'll be more cooperative with us than he will," replies the AI's voice in your headset. 
-----------------------------------
The FIRE encroaches on the girls position even further, too close for comfort.
"It's....my fault...."
"Yes, it's your fault.  You burned this forest. You're the reason for this FIRE," an angry voice shouts from within the FIRE
"But I....."
"It's your fault! This is the remnants of your soul!"
"My soul...."
"Are you a fucking idiot?!"
"But...."
"Can't you even accept responsibility?!"
"That's enough! Can't you see she's suffering?!" says a more compassionate voice from somewhere.
"HA! She's suffering?! WE'RE SUFFERING BECAUSE OF HER! She's the one who let herself be consumed by rage and grief. She's the one who wielded her power in anger. She deserves to die here in the flames of her own making!"
"I....deserve....to die?!"
"YES! Just wither away here and burn! Burn like the rest of us!"
 "Don't listen to them!"
"But I..."
"DIE!"
"SHUT UP!"
"but...I don't want to die....."
Cruel laughter echoes from within the FIRE, full of bitterness and venom. A laugh born of pure scorn, with nary a trace of joy or warmth. The laugh of a demon, of a psychopath. The laugh of one whose heart is tainted by evil.

"Well it was really more thanks to one of the initial enemy mechs who seemed to turn on the second mch which appeared here.  With Sarge being highly experimental not to mention it having been the first time I've piloted him I did little more than distract him while the gold mech took him down.  Before the second mech showed up I had a talk with the pilot and I kept a record of it."  He typed a few commands into Sarge and in not time a copy of the conversation was transmitted to Cali.  "Also the second mech eemed to have a highly unstable reactor, either that or the reactor became unstable because of a highly unstable pilot, I'm not entirely sure which."

The assailant didn't get the chance to shoot the woman because Razzly was able to make it in time and tackle her. The gun slides away as she drops it. She is momentarily stunned at the sudden reversal of the situation giving Razzly a chance to do something.

In actuality, his reactor should have been stable, but he handled it improperly.  I heard rumors that Omada Mechyards had perfected a reactor that makes use of the natural abilities of Animus, but it seems that he did not have his "vessel" with him to control it. Either that, or he wasn't an animus.  Essentially, he activated a set of systems in his mech he couldn't possibly hope to control by himself in the hopes of taking you and the other pilot out. An incredibly risky gamble, with a possible outcome you and the other pilot managed to avoid. As for the pilot, he is being held in a detention cell.

The woman is dressed in a janitors uniform, with blond hair and startling blue eyes.  Though you don't know it, she is the woman that Helios ran into earlier, who later went on to take over the communications relay.  "Hmmhmmhmm. I had no idea my "would be prisoner" was into this sort of thing," she says huskily, in an attempt at distracting you as she tries to become unpinned. "Don't move or I shoot!"  The woman from before is now holding your assailants gun pointed at her head.  "At this range it'd be REAL hard to miss, so I wouldn't try anything lady. Are you alright over there," the woman who just came out of the shower asks, directing the question at you without taking her eyes off the intruder.
(GM: you know, originally I hadn't planned on going this direction with you.)

"That'll be all for now.  Give my regards to the General for me will ya," Cali says with a wink. Her hologram shrinks into the projector as if sucked down a drain.  Apparently she knows of General Bob, though what she knows is a question for another day.
------------------------------------------------
Ninja:
The trace detects the transmission was coming from an individual who was using burst transmission. Hard to trace, but not impossible. Ty detects that the intended recipient and the transmitting individual are running off in opposite directions.  You could possibly catch one of them, but not both. They're both in areas where the Cascade wouldn't be able to fit, so you'd have to follow by foot.
 Note that Cali said the codes you installed are partial, and they unlock something to do with your blasters. You'll have to dig up the other portion of the codes to fully unlock that potential. You might be able to rummage through UPF mech codes to get it, or you could try your luck hacking a database. 
-----------------------------------
Attacks from all different directions slam into the stolen mech despite Silas' best efforts to dodge. "Cherise, what's taking so long!"
"The weapons systems are password protected.  Maybe they were worried about a young recruit getting the brilliant idea to joyride in this thing?!"
"Very funny, keep working at it!"
"THERE! I got two online!"
The mech strafes to the right just in time to avoid being hit by a photon cannon blast Followed by a quick descent to avoid being pummeled by gatling laser fire. "What the hell!? Photon Cannons are supposed to be banned!"
"And space stations are supposed to be neutral. While our former leaders may have seemed to be honorable on the outside, they're quite obviously not so honorable when one peels back the curtains!"
"Right. Save the ethical analysis for later, what weapons have we got!"
The mech had to peel away as another photon cannon blast nearly destroyed them, along with the asteroid they were using for cover.  "We've got a "lightwhip" and what appears to be some aerial drones that I can control.
"Better than nothing. Engage them!"
Moments later, a long metal chord shot out of the mechs right wrist. In seconds, the chord is charged with what appears to be light energy as they glow a yellowish white. Silas gives an expert flick of the mechs wrist and the whip sails through space cleaving entire asteroids and enemy mechs in half. "Oh, HELL YES!"
"Deploying Airds"
Several spiky things burst off the back of the mech. Several configurations are displayed on Cherise' screen. Upon selecting one, the airds fly into the pre-determined formation and begin firing upon the enemy. "Ah, I see. I can load formations and then control them as a swarm." The lasers fired by the airds quickly overwhelm the enemies in front of them and render them into space junk. 
[Renault, where are ya, you're missing the party?!]
[Kinda busy in here! Stealthed mech]
Before Silas could react, his mech experienced a horrible jolt as a stealthed mech slashed it with an energy weapon. He only caught a glimpse of it for a moment before it disappeared again. [Shit. They're out here too...]
------------------------------------
She appears before herself clad only in a devious smile and menacing aura.  Once clear of the FIRE, the "dark" version of her manifests dark robes that give off a chill feeling that burns hotter than the FIRE. "Don't listen to them," she declares. "They are the parts of your heart too weak to withstand the burning desire for vengeance. You saw what the Confederates did to your peaceful home. A neutral colony. Civilians. DEFENSELESS.  They struck you where it hurt most. So it's only natural you'd want to strike back against them. Right?! COME. Take my hand." Dark reaches a hand as silken as her voice out to her kneeling counterpart. "You know you want to take your revenge. Come with me, and it will certainly become possible."
The girl looks up into Darks eyes, drinking in her face. Suddenly, everything about her seems welcoming, warm. A refuge from this horrid place. A mean of escaping the FIRE.  Surely following this person couldn't be bad. How could it?

He took the rest of the day aside from meals to get the adjustments made, and by the end of it he was rather satisfied with the end results, performance specs were up across the board, still not 100% but it would most likely take several more rounds of adjustments to reach that point.  Finished for the day Tanr fell asleep rather quickly on the bed he had had moved from his old room on the station and simply into the hangarm after setting the hangaras security protocols of course.

In the two days that follow, Cali approaches you and fills you in on the situation over the past 2 days. The station wishes to sanction an operation.  In light of the information you've given her, It has been decided that the veracity of Renault's claims must be determined.  Furthermore, as a result of the interrogation of the Ragnarok soldier you and Renault defeated, it has come to light that the UPF sanctioned their attack on the station. Apparently both sides violated the stations neutrality at the same time. Your help would be appreciated either in ensuring the stations security or helping out with the operation planetside.  Cali has asked that when you've reached a decision that you contact her and let her know.
---------------------------------
Ninja:
You are unable to catch the mysterious transmitter, though you do find some of their equipment broken nearby. In the following days, the Forgotten technicians are able to piece it together a little bit before it permanently stops working. They are able to retreive some of the data, and it would seem that a couple of spies are aboard the station working for the UPF. Still reeling from the attack, Cali requests that you help out either with catching the spies or investigating a distress signal nearby. The two operations are not mutually exclusive, and you're also free to do neither one if you wish.
----------------------------------------
Undercover:
Security detains your attacker and you are able to get the upgrades you wanted.  At the end of the three days, Cali has a mission she thinks is perfectly suited for you, if you're interested. She asks that you come see her when you're ready.

Having already told the station's AI that he would be glad to help out on the operation, Tanr was quickly pulling together all the supplies he figured he would need.  He wanted to get done what he could before the mission briefing, so all he would need is to pull together anything brought up by the briefing before heading out, he had neglected to ask her if their would be others participating in this mission, of course if there were he would have to make it clear that everything about his mech was classified, as he was sure the Commander would not want any info about it getting out, except of course it's reputation.  After a few minutes he had everything he needed and made his way to the briefing room.

"Ah, good, both of you are here.  I have an interesting assignment for the both of you, which your are welcome to accept or refuse if you so wish. Before I begin, I should stress that this is a STEALTH mission.  We wish to avoid combat at all costs. Furthermore, you'll be operating on the planet below.

Razzly raises an eyebrow. For such an odd soldier to be the pilot of a highly experimental and classified mech just seemed funny for some reason, but then again, so did assigning a mechanic to a covert ops mission.  "Fair enough. So long as you don't go blabbering about my mech to anyone either, my lips are sealed. While not classified, the circumstances regarding my possession of it, well....let's just say they're unusual.  So, Cali, what are we up against, and why us?"

UndercoverUncle:
Cali seems pleased by your responses and begins to pace the room like a general addressing his troops.  "Excellent. However, before I can answer your question, there is something I need to tell you. As of yesterday evening, both the UPF and the Kurat Confederacy appealed to have the colonies stripped of their neutrality. During the attack of a few days ago, a group of people known as The Forgotten rose up to fight off the threat.  The Forgotten are refugees from the war who wish to have nothing to do with either side.  They live in the underbellies and infrastructure of the orbital colonies, ensuring the continued operation of the colonies in exchange for an anonymous life of freedom.  They are a ragtag bunch, but highly devoted to their homes. However, when armed members of the Forgotten entered the fray yesterday, they saved the colony in exchange for letting their existence be known.  This came at a great cost to us, because now we are accused of harboring a hidden army, a direct violation of our neutrality cause.  That's where you come in. Tanr is still affiliated with station security, and you my dear, are a simple mechanic who happens to possess a modified UPF mech."  Cali pauses for a moment to let the impact of her words sink in. Being an AI-like entity had it's advantages, long-windedness among them.  A slight gesture of her hand brings down a screen displaying a tactical map. On it, an excavation site down on the planet is displayed.  "According to the intel gathered by the both of you, and corroborated by our spies on the ground, we have reason to believe that they are excavating an ancient, alien weapon here.  The confederacy was willing to invade us in order to destroy it, and the UPF was willing to hire mercenaries to purge the colony.  Any questions so far?"
----------------------------------------
DigitLninja:
The first thing you discover in the report is that there ACTUALLY IS a password.  She said otherwise on the radio so that if it was intercepted, you'd be able to catch a spy or two.  The password is "White Fox". Furthermore, the pictures of two men and their associated mechs are displayed, along with information on stolen credentials they might be using. They are believed to be armed with silenced weaponry, though this is not confirmed as of yet. Information on suspected hideouts and confirmed transmission sites are also listed and displayed with a convenient map. It is believed that the two spies are working with the UPF, though an asterisk indicates that there MAY be reason to believe that they're using that as a cover to frame the UPF and instead work for the Confederates. You have your work cut out for you. What do you do next?

"No questions from me, that all pretty much makes sense so far."

Hopefully if they could get to the bottom of this they could convince the two sides that the station was still neutral.  He would hate for the colony to end up right in the middle of a conflict that would undoubtedly cause massive damage if not completely destroy the station.  After all he had lived here his whole life it had become his home.

"Very well then.  A full scale assault is wholly beyond our means. Destroying the weapon with our current equipment and forces would be next to impossible, even if it were undefended.  That's why I want you to buy us some time.  Our spies on the ground have indicated that the excavation is currently taking place within a large, semi-natural cavern, located here." She focuses the tac-chart on the location and several high-res images of the site appear. The weapon itself looks like a giant machine with several cannons and unknown parts. From the looks of the site, the weapon is almost fully excavated. "Every few hours, the excavation teams switch out and undergo a detox shower to cleanse themselves of the harmful radiation coming off the weapon.  We'd like to strike when the teams are being switched out. You'll have several hours to infiltrate the excavation facility, but only a 15 minute window to collapse the cavern on the weapon. The outer hull of the weapon can not be damaged by any known weapon in our arsenal, so we have reason to believe that collapsing the cave on top of it should leave it intact, while delaying the excavation indefinitely. The key to this operation will be extraction.  Once you've caused the cave to collapse, the entire facility will be on high alert.  I can not stress how important it is that you two not get caught.  In fact, we'd rather you not be seen at all. Make it look like an accident if at all possible. To that end, our spies have created some "diversions". This will hopefully draw attention away from you and enable you to complete the mission and get out without anyone noticing."

"Well if we expect the facility to be on high alert AFTER we collapse the roof, then the key is to cause the collapse from the outside thus eliminating the need for extraction.  If we can get some sort of explosive that can be detonated remotely, then all we need do is get at least one of us in, if the other can't get in we can leave them as backup.  Plant the explosives and then get out of their before we blow them.  Are there any remote explosives available to us for this?"

"Ty, bring up a list of current members of this facility, if we can't find a secure landing zone than we will have to come in silent and I'll have to do a little space walk to reach the location."

"As you wish."

Cali shakes her holographic head. "We ourselves lack any remote charges, however there should be some on-site. The excavation teams have made use of them suring the dig. It might be possible to make use of those. it could certainly be made to look like an accident too... i reccommend you take into account the fuel the machine uses." Another picture appears, this time of a cluster of crystals. "This is Tiberium, a type of substance with some really nasty properties. It's quite handy for powering mechs and energy weapons though. Id avoid it if at all possible, especially the blue variety. Highly unstable and quite explosive. That could also be used to cause the cave in, if one were so inclined..."

Ty pulls up alist of the abandoned facilities former occupants, as well as a list of all people on Einstein colony. It appears all personell were transferred to the station long ago.

Tiberium is present in this dig site?!  He had done a quick study of the crystals since one of the reactors Sarge had was a tiberium reactor, and that quick run through had definitely confirmed how volatile the crystals could be.  If they could find some of the blue crystals while there, preferrably even within the weapons reactor, they could possibly at the very least damage it greatly while also causing a cave-in.  That was certainly a strategy to keep in mind.

"Alright that could possibly make this work even better, I'll have to keep it in mind."

"Wouldn't this be considered an act of war? If your precious neutrality is so important, why risk it with an operation like this? It just seems to me that antagonizing the upf will bite us in the ass later," Razzly said with obvious concern.
