Day 1, Moringstar’s Ranchhouse, 6:40 PM PT

"I appreciate you takin' this meetin' Mr. Morningstar. We was instructed t' see you 'fore delivering the Old Warhorse t' his final resting place in Serenity Valley. Told you'd have the know-how t' get us through the dangers that be, " Wyatt said while shaking Morningstar’s hand.

“What my dear captain means, “ Willow interjected smoothly,” is that we hope you’ve received word of our mission. Captain Havelock’s family has received Alliance permission to put him to rest in Serenity Valley, among his men. We understand you’ve mapped some of the Valley and may be able to help us accomplish this safely. Have we understood correctly? “

Morningstar looked confused by Wyatt's opening but then clarity came to his face as Willow explained further. "Havelock!" He said aloud, "Oh yeah. I got a wave from a Federal Marshall about Havelock." he returned to his desk and began punching on the screen of the cortex box.

"Captain Havelock." The Shepherd said, "I read about him and a group of transport crew that found against a mercenary band. " Was that you people?"

(assuming a yes it was)

"Mighty brave of you. Standing against so many for the lives of a group of people you never knew before you rescued them." He continued, "Were you well rewarded in the end?"

(whatever you choose)

"I would have thought that after saving so many rich and generous folks that you be livng large and putting the fright trade behind you?"

(whatever you choose)

"Aha!" Virgil called out, "Yes I do have a letter here for a Colonel Sanders. Oh my!" Virgil face fell a bit, "he was with the 42nd Infantry. " He exchanged a look of dread with the Shepherd who walked over to look over his shoulder. Carson also grimaced. "Sorry to say that records are a bit sketchy and frankly we have more markers out there with no name than we have ones with. The good news is we know where the 42nd is but the bad news is they area is not cleared of ordinance."

Morningstar turned the screen around so everyone could see. There were marked areas on the map for units and some were in green, others in red. The 42nd was in the red zone but not too far from the green edge. "Now I can ask Jon to get some of his boys together, have them go out in the morning to clear and area to the 42nd and you can lay him to rest by the afternoon assuming there ain't no hitches. If there is, well it should be much longer than that. He has come a long way, I'd rather see him in the right place. Are you in a hurry?"

"Perhaps Virgil could get you a few complimentary rooms at the hotels in town? Or we have a five star Noodle House in town?" Shepherd Carson suggests quietly.

Day 1, Serenity View’s Spaceport, 6:20 PM PT

“Firefly eh? Nice machine. Take you anywhere even if half the parts fail on you. Those aren’t the factory drive pods are they? You had work done recently?”

“Yeah you could say that” Wolf smiled at Chewie and took another drink when offered. “Few weeks back we were on a transport run when we heard this mayday. Was from one of those high priced Star liners. Seems they had a hull failure and needed off of it quick. Well we found them and got them off all safe and sound but as we were moving away she blew and caused us a lot of damage to the engines so we had to land quick. Ended up on this no name husk of rock and waited there till a passing Alliance ship found us. Well some of the rich passengers were so happy to be alive they paid for new engines and now we are returning the body of one of them that did die, a fine gentleman name of Havelock.”

"What!" Chewie said loudly, "That was you? I heard about you on the Vids! Killer mercenary slavers trying to snag rich people for ransom and sex slaves! Wow! Were you there? Like in the thick of fighting?"

"Chewie!" Captain Case admonished lightly, "Give the man a chance to breathe first. I am sorry to hear of the loss of your friend. I am surprised they allowed you to bring him back here. I thought Serenity Valley was a closed site by now."

(assuming some response about events and the mission)

"Well Mr. Apollo, it is a pleasure to have made you acquaintance. I have things to do and I should really check on Billie but it has been an honour. I hope to see you around. We might be over at a saloon in town called Whistler's tonight if you have some off time. Maybe we will see you then." And with that the captain goes back to the ship through the Cargo Bay."

Chewie turns to Wolf, "Tell me what happened? I want to hear the whole thing. The cortex had it some like unification war all over again."

Day 1, Serenity View’s Spaceport Tower, 6:20 PM PT

Jade made her way over to the tower of the spaceport. It was clear to her from the ground and the air upon approach that the field was recently broaden to allow greater access. But they were using only half of the area so far so they were expecting a lot more traffic in the future.

The tower wasn't renovated and the ground crew was running around in a state of rush that comes from being a single crew dealing with orders from 3x as many ships. Jade decided to wait to talk to them and entered the tower itself and headed up to the watch deck via the lift.

The tower was busy too but there were a lot of staff using makeshift desks and cortex consoles wired haphazardly across the ceiling and floor. An older woman sat in the controller chair near the centre and was using a head set to talk to someone while she worked at her station.

"Yeah, i know that you'd like us to do that but it is not going to happen. Rules are rules and I am not breaking rules without someone saying that I have permission to do so. Yes, I realize your time is valuable but so is mine." She paused and rolled her eyes before seeing Jade standing there, "Hey! I am the boss here. You got issues, you deal with me. The law was in place when you signed the papers and it ain't my fault you didn't due the diligence. So you go to Virgil, Tell him Vivian says hi and let me know how it works for you." She clicked the headset and looked over at Jade, "Hi there. Vivian my name and I am the controller here. If you are waiting for maintenance, my crew will be there as soon as they can. If you are looking for a job, can you do ship maintenance?"

I live to confuse people! Victory is nigh!

“What my dear captain means, “ Willow interjected smoothly,” is that we hope you’ve received word of our mission. Captain Havelock’s family has received Alliance permission to put him to rest in Serenity Valley, among his men. We understand you’ve mapped some of the Valley and may be able to help us accomplish this safely. Have we understood correctly? “

Morningstar looked confused by Wyatt's opening but then clarity came to his face as Willow explained further. "Havelock!" He said aloud, "Oh yeah. I got a wave from a Federal Marshall about Havelock." he returned to his desk and began punching on the screen of the cortex box.

"Captain Havelock." The Shepherd said, "I read about him and a group of transport crew that found against a mercenary band. " Was that you people?"

Shrugged shoulders could be taken any which way and that's what Wyatt Sung settled for. Noncommittal and yet at the same time not denying the deed. For all intents and purposes, unless it put credits in their hands, fuel in the tank, and food on the table Captain Sung didn't care much if anyone had heard of them or what they went through.

"Mighty brave of you. Standing against so many for the lives of a group of people you never knew before you rescued them." He continued, "Were you well rewarded in the end?"

"We lost a good man," a warm flare had been set off in his stomach by the comment as though reward was what they'd done it for. "Truth of the matter was, we did what had t' be done in order t' survive. Heroin' usually get's ya killed. It doesn't keep yer ship in the sky an' yer crew fed."

"I would have thought that after saving so many rich and generous folks that you be living large and putting the fright trade behind you?"

Sung sent Willow a look that was as much pleading for her to cut the questioning off as asking whether a Shepard was supposed to be that keen on finances.

"Aha!" Virgil called out, "Yes I do have a letter here for a Colonel Sanders. Oh my!" Virgil face fell a bit, "he was with the 42nd Infantry. " He exchanged a look of dread with the Shepherd who walked over to look over his shoulder. Carson also grimaced. "Sorry to say that records are a bit sketchy and frankly we have more markers out there with no name than we have ones with.

"Perhaps Virgil could get you a few complimentary rooms at the hotels in town? Or we have a five star Noodle House in town?" Shepherd Carson suggests quietly.

"Actually," Wyatt drawled not unkindly. "Stickin' 'round a bit might provide me an' mine with some time t' line up our next set o' fares. An' while I appreciate yer offer of hospitality, it ain't necessary. Thank you kindly all the same. You can drop a wave our way when it's safe t' take Havelock home. 'Til then, I don't plan on muckin' about much so you can find us back at our ship if'n ya need us."

No Thanks..........

"Captain Havelock." The Shepherd said, "I read about him and a group of transport crew that found against a mercenary band. " Was that you people?"

Asher felt a bit of pride that folks knew they’d done right by the passenger, he hoped others might cotton to help folks in need.

"We lost a good man, truth of the matter was, we did what had t' be done in order t' survive. Heroin' usually get's ya killed. It doesn't keep yer ship in the sky an' yer crew fed." Wyatt kinda answered as the kid felt, but what Shepherd said next bothered him.

"Mighty brave of you. Standing against so many for the lives of a group of people you never knew before you rescued them." He continued, "Were you well rewarded in the end?...I would have thought that after saving so many rich and generous folks that you be livng large and putting the fright trade behind you?"

Now the kid felt a twinge of anger, what’s a Shepard asking about rewards for? Weren't they all about doing good for the sake of doing good? Asher was about to call the Shepherd on reward comment but he caught Wyatt’s glace to Willow and held his tongue.

Mr. Morningstar went on to tell about where the 42nd was resting and it didn’t sound good. Uncleared territory for graves would make it dangerous to take Havelock there but that’s what they all agreed to do. The explained it may take some time clear things enough to get in there. The Shepherd then offer that Mr. Morningstar should get them a free room in town.

"Perhaps Virgil could get you a few complimentary rooms at the hotels in town? Or we have a five star Noodle House in town?" Shepherd Carson suggests quietly.

Wyatt answered for them.

"Actually,Stickin' 'round a bit might provide me an' mine with some time t' line up our next set o' fares. ..An' while I appreciate yer offer of hospitality, it ain't necessary. Thank you kindly all the same. You can drop a wave our way when it's safe t' take Havelock home. 'Til then, I don't plan on muckin' about much so you can find us back at our ship if'n ya need us."

Continuing the conversation

“Firefly eh? Nice machine. Take you anywhere even if half the parts fail on you. Those aren’t the factory drive pods are they? You had work done recently?”

“Yeah you could say that” Wolf smiled at Chewie and took another drink when offered. “Few weeks back we were on a transport run when we heard this mayday. Was from one of those high priced Star liners. Seems they had a hull failure and needed off of it quick. Well we found them and got them off all safe and sound but as we were moving away she blew and caused us a lot of damage to the engines so we had to land quick. Ended up on this no name husk of rock and waited there till a passing Alliance ship found us. Well some of the rich passengers were so happy to be alive they paid for new engines and now we are returning the body of one of them that did die, a fine gentleman name of Havelock.”

"What!" Chewie said loudly, "That was you? I heard about you on the Vids! Killer mercenary slavers trying to snag rich people for ransom and sex slaves! Wow! Were you there? Like in the thick of fighting?"

“Ahh yeah I guess you could say that. Wait! Vids? You say you saw it on the vids?” Wolf was generally shocked having not had the time to watch a vid caster since he’d been released from holding.

"Chewie!" Captain Case admonished lightly, "Give the man a chance to breathe first. I am sorry to hear of the loss of your friend. I am surprised they allowed you to bring him back here. I thought Serenity Valley was a closed site by now."

“Not 100% sure why they let us do so, though Havelock was a very big help in the rescue. You’d have to ask Captain Sung, Wyatt Sung, my captain as he knows all the details.”

"Well Mr. Apollo, it is a pleasure to have made you acquaintance. I have things to do and I should really check on Billie but it has been an honour. I hope to see you around. We might be over at a saloon in town called Whistler's tonight if you have some off time. Maybe we will see you then."

“Yeah maybe so, I’ll try to bring my friend Asher along, maybe more of the crew”

With that the captain goes back to the ship through the Cargo Bay."

Chewie turns to Wolf, "Tell me what happened? I want to hear the whole thing. The cortex had it some like unification war all over again."

“Nay no Uni war pretty simple really” Wolf then proceeded to tell Chewie a modified account leaving out more of the intamite details of his personal fight and trying to tone down the clear media exjageration. However one thing had caught the Rocinante’s mechanic’s attention so after telling the tale of the rescue he asked.

“So was wondering. Your Captain mentioned someone named Billie. She another of your crew?”.................
