have not seen gravity

I am away from home this weekend taking my daughter to a university tour and infromation session. I will seek to clarify and sum up positions either Sunday or Monday.

The way I see it, Wyatt, Wolf and Tess took the shuttle to help with the turbine once the Captain was finished his discussion with Matherson.

Asher and Jessie are taking pictures. Ody put down he was planting the bombs but the young men need time to make them so that was a bit premature.

Someone dropped off the soup to the passengers and they are heading to caves.

Willow and Ma discovered the sabatoge to your engines as the above is happening.

Amber and Havelock are in the infirmary

Cameron gathered his clothing and is somewhere on the ship.

Timeline..........

I just figured that Wyatt and Wolf had gotten the guy started before Wyatt went to talk to Jessy and Matherson. That would have taken some time, there would be silent pauses and posturing that drags out conversations. Wyatt would have had to go get the violin case and then put somewhere before he went to see Matherson or at least verified it was behind the chair. Then he would have had to put Matherson's case somewhere and retrieve the violin case.

In that time Ash had gone to his cabin and gotten the things he needed and had to carry the other items to the shuttle and stowed them. He went back to get Jessy and she had to change. The brainiacs would have had time to slap together the crued bombs in that time.

All the time was there to build the bombs, it just might not have been filled with story too well.

timeline

The time that has passed is less than 20 minutes so for since you asked them to build so - no. Not enough time

Based of the tools you have given the boys they can build four bombs. Three will be either pin pull detonation or impact (they will rig them to go either way).They will be area fragment explosions that should kill or do damage in a 20 foot range and each is the size of a breadbox. These will take one hour to complete

The fourth on is a heavy on that the used a crybaby canister and that can be rigged for a radio detonation. This is a big boom, capable of destroying a aircraft or at least a section of a building. Note - they scavenged all of Ma's sterno and cooking oil to make this. Completion of this one is one hour after the others.

Sheldon thinks he could make an effective "real" missile from one of your decoy missiles. But he needs more grenades, detonators and a high glucose syrup. That will take two hours more.

Wyatt is talking to Matherson around 9:10. Figuring 10 minutes to complete conversation and then time to get to the shuttle - then the message from Willow across the ship and comms would be just as the shuttle is taking off. Albert is away right now so if Bro could reply to the call and let me know if you will land again to check out the problem of sabotage on the ship.

I will say it here to avoid the doubts - someone got into the engine room and the compression coil is now gone. Vanished except a whole lot of dust, which makes no sense to anyone. This means that you are officially humped - no repairs will lift you off without a new coil.

I feel like I am lingering here too much so I hope this weekend to whoosh us forward an hour or two. Opinions are always welcome.

Thank you for the time frames.

I've posted. I returned Wyatt to the ship, but didn't know whether Willow would meet them, or ask him to come to the engine room and didn't want to get too far ahead of things. So, I'll watch for a post from you, Cathy, and then move along as necessary.

Roger, would the coil off of the ASRAV work as a replacement for the one missing on Roc?

no

You would need a similar engine at least and a ASREV is a short range vessel. Specifically a Trace Compression Block engine that uses the compression coil for most of the main functionality. A Hornet class, Dragonfly, and a few salvage machine would be examples.

weekend

The weekend got away from me between the university tours for Mmv and the search for RED hot wheel shoes for Incrediboy (long story). I will be working up a post today.

On a sad note, Teller has left both Rocinante and Destiny. Something about to much drama on the inn. So I will play out Jessie and see about getting someone to take Tess in Destiny. I am open to suggestions.

On that note - did we lose Connor as John? I have not seen anything from him in awhile.

posted

I have posted a bit. the conversation with Matherson and the Engine room reveal.

Not sure what to do with Ash though as I need to know where you are laying the bombs and how you are setting them up.

I also need a list of locations that you photographed the case.

Love to move this forward. I have a couple of silver screens to do and then I would like to get to the "here they come" stage.

Sorry...............

I'd hoped our post on hiding the bomb was implied enough, but oops on me.

On the map I figured the bombs were hid in and near the hills to lower left. That was to draw them away from the caves and the atmo processor. Figure a mile or so apart. The gravel, grass and rocky terrain would leave clues for the Merc's to follow. I figure that's around 4 miles away from Roc. If you draw a line square to the 1 mile distance line (end nearest the cave) on your map over to the hills that would be the first, then using that 1 mile line as a scale figure a mileish along the hills to the second and same to the third. That would be headed toward the gap at the bottom to the page. Ash and Jessy would swing back to Roc in an arc counter clockwise across the foot of the montains in the lower right. Again to draw the Mercs in a longer route to head back.

I'd figure Wyatt wants to pick where to plant the big bomb or make a missile.

Does it need more info?

of course Questions

Roger, Wolf was in and out of the engine room a number of times before I dropped off the scraps to create the homemade claymores. What's the time frame from when I gathered up the stuff in the engine room, dropped them off, and pulled the mule out of the ships hanger.

During that time other then the young bomb making lads who else was onboard including crew. Rocinante is not that big and its corridors are pretty straight with crew quarters locked down be kinda hard to hide so one of us may have caught a glimpse of our 'troublemaker'

Big bomb...or missile...

I'd prefer a missile. We don't really have any idea where a ship will set down.

I'm sorry to correct you, Roger, but Connor is my second boy who opted out playing a girl originally. Giddeon is the one playing John, and he's just waiting for something to post to.

okay answers

Bro - Sorry I got your sons names mixed up, but i do so with my own as well. Giddy has not posted for two months and he has yet to let you know the turbines were uncoupled.

Tann - Actually no you didn't post that you went back to engine room. In fact, I asked your specifically where Wolf was going before leaving ship and you said you were gathering guns and ammo from yours and Asher's room only.

"The only stops I'm making Roger are to pick up my extra ammo box of 100 rds for the Pistols and an extra 50 rds for my shotgun. As for the JC I'm reloading the few rds I fired and grabbing all 3 of it's magazines and 150 Shotgun rds for a total of 200 shotgun rds. Of those 200, 100 of them will go to John for the SPAS shotgun he has and I'm putting all into my backpack. Then its on to the Mule. And just to be clear I have all 4 magazines for the pistols."
You did post you had a bucket of scrape but you did not post where you got it. I could only assume you got it along the route between Asher's gun supply and the mule. You probably would not keep scrap in the engine room anyway but in a supply locker.

I wanted Wolf to go into engine room so he'd discover this missing part himself. But you didn't so I improvised a way to get you back. As to when did this happen between now and the time you left to go to the atmo processor. Part of online gaming is that sometimes i have to guess.

That's a good point...

I'll bring it to his attention.

I brought it to his attention...

And he said he'd make a post right pronto. I think he's gotten a little busy with school, work, the extra classes he signed up for, and a girlfriend. However, as he is my son, I have sufficiently beat him to show my displeasure at his negligence. The beating was so bad that the bruises should be visible in his profile.

Roger, I hope that my latest post didn't screw anything up.
