Subject: Story thought.....


Well I've got an idea of what Ash could do as he returns to the cargo bay, just would like a bit of input from ya'll. I plan to have him check in with Trish for a situation update, seeing that Willow and John are off fixing Sifu.

I was going the have Ash gather Captain Havelock, Lord Hood and Mr. Bridges (with his two goons)to help keep the peace in the cargo hold (I figure Trish will be staying too). Ash would recognize men of power and he would know that other would too. Lord Hood and Havelock together would calm the hoypaloy and Bridge's body guards would just look scary. That way Ash could keep more eyes on the group.

He'd tell them about the techy boys and to be sure they don't wander.

I plan to write this up this afternoon while watching football so if I miss a good from you I'll back post.

Ash watched as Wolf moved through the engine checking panels and flipping switched. The flashing lights and warning beeps subside as the big mechanic addressed the issues. The din of frightened voices from the cargo bay became more clear as they silenced. Asher saw a brief moment of relief pass over Wolf’s face as things seemed to get more in control. Just he was moving to see what he could do to help Wyatt’s voice came over the comm…..

"This is yer captain speaking. I'll be appreciating y'all's cooperation in settlin' down and finding ways t' stay out from underfoot as the crew goes about their duties. Crew...please go about yer duties an' deliver t' me reports on systems directly t' the bridge. Ash, Kid, it'd do well t' see how you can be of assistance in the hold right about now so John can git to his duties."

As the kid heard his name and the tone in the Cap’ts voice he knew he had to get back to the cargo bay..and quick. Giving Wolf a weak smile and shrug then sighed…”Gotta go.”

As he passed the comm. He grabbed the mic, he switched to the bridge….”On it Sir, just stayed to see if Wolf needed an extra hand.” Ash felt that if Wyatt had to call him to the cargo bay then things might be a bit more dicey than they looked.

I've read the character bio so OOC I know he's controlled, but IC we still have figure it out. Appearances and attitude can drive preception, so it will depend on how the dwarve presents himself.

Now Cor making a declaration of his beleif would influence others thoughts because they trust him.

Stardate 2368.07.08
USS Discovery, Main Security Office– 0550
Chief Petty Officer Edward Kaster snapped to attention as Lt.Reid entered the office,”At ease Chief…. Do you have the reports?”

“They are on your screen sir.”

John sat behind his desk across from the watch officer. As the screen light up he reviewed the deployment of team as viewed by their NCO. Each NCO seems to focus on the same issues. It concerned John but nothing that couldn’t be worked out.

Closing the reports he made his way to the Wardroom to await his Officers reports. John needed to compare reports. His Officers had to be dispatched from different locations from the teams had to meet up at the point of the problem. How had they handled planning on the run and coordinating the teams.?

Lives depended on how quickly they could respond and adapt. He knew LaRue would still be on the bridge so he’d review with her later.

Raditz was first, he was solid officer and good leader, if a bit quiet. John wasn’t surprised when he handed him a written report.

Ensign Kato was next followed close by Teir. Before Mamoru could speak Steward broke into his usual diatribe, between the colorful descriptions the solid report came through. They seemed sure of their teams, but they wanted to know more about their enemies. They charged into what they thought might be a Borg attack with little more than rumor of tactics. These things seem like well organized zombies of old stories and games, but this was no game.

When the Officers were finished John dismissed them. He spent the next hour researching anything available on the Borg attacks against Star Fleet.

Still getting into character, I may be spending too much time just getting to know Lt. Reid as the Security Officer. His duties form as much as his personality. When I have structure then my story flows better.

A sharp whistle caught Ash's attention. He spied Wyatt and he directed him after the motion near the stairs. The young folk were b-lining for the engine room.

The kid hot footed after them but the first made it into the engine room. The boat lurched when something hit it.

Ash caught up to the gang of four, “Gorrum, you folks are bound to die one way or another, …..get the hell outta here, this ain’t no pleasure cruise.” Ash heard a similar shout from Wolf on the inside.

From inside came girlish scream, followed by the thud of a body collapsing on the floor.

Pushing the teenager out of the way Asher rushed in to see Wolf standing next to the engine holding his shotgun. On the floor was a pasty face kid.

“I’ll get him outta here before he wets himself and messes the floor.”

Grabbing the teen by his boots pulled him to the remaining three teens, “Take this an get back into the cargo bay, if any of you show you nose anywhere ya ain’t invited you’ll get to meet the black up close and personal.”
As the teens dragged their companion away the turned back as Wolf re-sheathes his shotgun.

“Sorry guy, I should’a stayed here,…… Wyatt has it under control out there. ….What’cha need ?”

Topic: The Trilogy War
Subject: Evening......


Ulthok had seen the exasperation on Cor’s face when he had addressed the thieves leader, but the mage feared more for his friends than did from his friend. The spike armored dwarve sent shiver through Ulthok when had first seen him. The look and smell clued the mage that this might be an extreme fighter, the kind that once started won’t stop until all they believe foes are dead. When in rage they are even immune to some magic spells. Ulthok didn’t really care much if the bullies got their due, he just didn’t want to be included in the melee. For all they had been through, an ounce of prevention was worth the bird in the hand.

Peri hadn’t surprised him that she would join in but had no clue what might do and Valene’s Tygr scaring away the thieves mounts easily dispersed the ugly throng.

The dark dwarve was clearly the greater of the threats, so when Cor invited him to join them for the night it must be to size up his potential to help or hinder the party. "Right then lads an lasses, tis nigh time to set camp before we lose all light. let's get a fire started and see to a meal……, If you wish you can join us for the evening."

Ulthok, found soft spot to make his bed and prepared an evening meal for himself and Peri all the time keeping a close watch to what the small fighter was doing.

“Peri..we seemed to have done well or just got lucky. Watch the Dwarve, but don’t anger him. Most Dwarves have an odd sense of humor but if this one is a Berserker they can be very dangerous. We will need to get to know this fellow, so watch, listen and we will talk with him more later.”

Handing Peri an apple tart the two sat enjoyed their meal.

The idea of working on special Anti-Borg training could be part of the out come from the SIM. Taking what was learned about changing weapons so they don't adapt so quickly.

Everyone gets trained so all the teams are equal.

Is the idea of Security sections of 10 plus leader on different decks sound?

Subject: Teir.........


Ok, Roger, I'm working on a small post where John is reviewing the reports from the group leaders, NCO's.

I figure that there are Security Sections for each Section Group and they are dispursed throughout the ship.

John will be reviewing the reports in his Serurity Office in Alpha section. He'll have the Section Offices report in person in wardroom of the Alpha Teams section at 0700.

Teams Alpha, Beta, Gamma and Delta are special forces teams.

Teir is a Special Teams Officer (like Navel SEALs), the Alpha team he was going to join was lead by NCO, Senior Chief Petty Officer Noah Dunn. There ten members on each team, plus leader and an Officer when needed. Part of their special training is developing Anti-Borg tactics.

Ensign Raditz, Ensign Kato will also report, their are Special Teams too. Ensine Sojal was the four Special Teams Officer, but wasn't assigned on this action.

Ensine LaRue is finishing Ensine Parker's watch on the bridge, she's Master-at-Arms teams, general security teams.

So run with it. I'll build on what ever you write.

Stardate 2368.07.08
USS Discovery, Lt. John Britt Reid’s Quarters– 0350

Ensign Antoinette La Rue had reported and John relinquished the Rim to her. He needed to get a bit of rest before the reports came in. The people under his command had proven to more than adequate but that didn’t mean there could be improvement. The ship relied on them to hold the breach so they could do their jobs. So much depended on the unseen efficiency of security forces on board. John would review the reports before 0800 staff meeting. Their input might give him insight on ways to keep the Discovery stable when chaos wants to reign.

John had checked with sick bay to be sure Ensign Parker was care for, the young man has suffered an concussion and scalp wound but other than that he’d recover quickly.
Returning to his stateroom the Lieutenant straitened to mess caused by shacking of the ship. The crystal heirloom that held a single antique silver bullet had slid to the edge of the bureau but had not fallen. John picked it up to set it safely away. As he turned it there on the bottom was his family’s creed.
I believe...
• that to have a friend, a man must be one.
• that all men are created equal and that everyone has within himself the power to make this a better world.
• that God put the firewood there, but that every man must gather and light it himself.
• in being prepared physically, mentally, and morally to fight when necessary for that which is right.
• that a man should make the most of what equipment he has.
• that 'this government of the people, by the people, and for the people' shall live always.
• that men should live by the rule of what is best for the greatest number.
• that sooner or later...somewhere...somehow...we must settle with the world and make payment for what we have taken.
• that all things change but truth, and that truth alone, lives on forever.
• in my Creator, my country, my fellow man.
It wasn’t so far from his allegiance to Star Fleet, but it was deeper and older and personal.

John finished and went to rest while he waited for the reports to come in.

Ulthok and Peri edged a bit closer to the ring thieves, as they approached they heard the battle seasoned Dwarv address the general pubic.

“Look 'ere. I ain't really looking for a fight, see?'' The Dwarv replied, hardly containing his amusment. ''I've only just got movin' and you've gone and stopped me. If you just stand aside, then I won't 'ave to 'urt ya'. Well... kill ya'.''

Whispering to Peri…”I like his spunk and Cor seems to be quite right.. those thieves have no clue what they are doing. This could be fun. “

''Oh dear, seems my little girl is hungry as well. It really is your unlucky day.'' Pointing his hammer at the party. ''Are these your people too? They look a little better than you do. Well now, maybe I will have a fair fight.''…… ''Because I've decided to turn this lil' situation on it's head. 'ow about this. You give me your food an' money, an' maybe i'll let you lot live. 'ow does that sound?''

With that Ulthok spoke, “Great Googlie Mooglie no we’re not with them… ..we don’t care to ride with the stupid……..besides that tall one appears to be allergic to a real fight.” With that the mage touched his nose and whispered the “pepper” as he cast a cantrip of sneeze on the thieves’ leader.

The mage knew that if the leader faltered the rest would run. The embarrassment just might save the humans life and keep this Dwarv from turning his attack on the party.

Peri seemed to find it comfortable on Ulthok shoulder and he didn’t mind, she was light and he was thrilled at the what this bonding could do. Shrugging on his pack and weapons the mage prepared to leave. Valene left to grab her gear too and met them in the hall. They made their way down to the kitchen. When Ulthok enter the cooks gasped at the sight of the tiny Dragonet perched by the Halflings head. Pri’s bright eyes and curious smile put the folks at ease.

“We seemed to have missed our chance to enjoy your glorious breakfast, but might find a bit food we could eat as we ride? I seem smell fresh pastry, might we get a few wrapped in paper so they might last a will. The cooks laughed and grabbed up bread, cheese and apple tarts. They quickly packed up the food Ulthok handed Peri a tart, “Here you go, we’ll have more as we ride. Enjoy them now it may not be so easy from now on.”

The small adventures thank the staff and Ulthok left a few gold coin on the cutting board. The mage slipped the food into him pouch of holding and the three left to join the others. Leaving the kitchen the three made their way to the courtyard. The party paused as the mage enter with the Bluegreen Dragonet.

“Friends, you were all concerned, as was I, when my Find Familiar spell went wrong. I thought I was being draw to be the familiar of a Dragon, I was nearly correct. This is Periwinkle Thistledown, if you haven’t guessed she is a Fairy Dragon, she has chosen to be my companion. I’ve told her a brief bit all of you, including that cat. …..Now of you that know Fairy Dragons this will be a very interesting time.”

The mage then found his pony, as he started to mount the poor shrieked in terror, bucking and flinging Ulthok to the ground. As the Halfling plummeted Peri lightly fluttered up and away. Looking up from the ground Ulthok saw Valene sitting on a large creature that had the look of large canine with feline features. The expression on Valene face could only be interpreted as “Oops!”

Some Time Later……………

The party had gathered the animals and were well on their way. Ulthok had given Valene her share of the breakfast to enjoy on the ride. He nibbled the bread and cheese offering Peri bits as she wished. He knew she was waiting for the apple tart. When they had finished their late breakfast he pulled a tart from the paper wrap and handed it up to Peri. “ Let’s see if we can make these last a few days?”

The Nexted Day…..

Party had seen more and more folks traveling north away from the oncoming enemy. As they approached a crossroad. There a group of riffraff had surrounded and threatened a rather ominous looking Dwarve. Cor stopped the party, "Well now, seemed like there may be a bit of a situation ahead. Ready yourselves but for the moment we hold. Seems to me that 10 on 1 is a bit unfair but the thieves will likely figure that out soon."

A few little cntrips could start them sneezing so they couldn't fight. Any thoughts folks.

A great place for a little mischief to bother the riffraff, the bunch of bullies.
