Bridge,Nosi

Cherryh looked over his shoulder from his seat at the ship's helm. In contemplation his lips tugged towards one side of his face.

"Alert O'Conner," sucking at his teeth. "We can always contact her once we find the Hedland and our contact," he decided.

"As for the away team," turning his head around and rubbing his neck. "Let them proceed at the best pace they can. And if they can, paint our debris trail as they go. They don't have to have to physical tag it if need be. Just have the computer ID each piece. It'll come and handy on their way back. And make sure they network it."
Hmm. Luke, this Gundam reminds me of a puzzle.

Alastar followed along in silence, smile on his face. He was rather proud of himself, to be honest. Anti-social tendencies where often the bane of him, but at least he'd found himself amongst kindred spirits.

He followed Chien as he went, heading towards the hanger.

Wayans frowned as he walked over to the communication's desk and picked up the phone. He eyed Cherryh nervously, then patched himself through to O'Connor.

Wayans quickly relayed the news and hung up the phone, his ears burning red from the insults he had just been assaulted with.

"He took that better then I had anticipated. He seems to be confident with the away team. But I have to agree with him on his thoughts about Lorenzo....You don't think OMNI or ZAFT found him do you?"

Patty and Chien

If she had to listen to Aura's chatter for the entire mission, Patty may have considered removing her helmet and opening the cockpit and letting her self suffocate in the vacuum of space. Of course that was the last resort, her first option was....

"Shyne, cut the chatter. We need to keep all the channels clear for any transmissions that the Hedland may be sending."

Closing her eyes she thought about her conversation just before launching.

A few hours earlier

The briefing had finished and Patty went to change into her normal suit right away. Her old OMNI one was still in her locker, but now there was the new ATLAS one as well. Putting it on, it fit a little snug, but not to tight.

As she made her way over to the shuttle, she heard Chien call out to her.

"Hey, Patty! Nice normal suit!"

"Chien," she was about to yell at him to take a hike, but then she had one of her, feelings. "Hold on a sec." She then pushed off the floor and floated over to him. She could see the other B Team member Alastar had come along with him.

Leaning closer to Chien she asked him, "Is your Mobile Suit all ready to go?"

"Yeah, it fine. Not sure about the others though."

"Good, just make sure your's and Alastar's are good to go. I've got a feeling you may be needed at some point." She tapped her nose as she told him this, a slight hint at the fact she was feeling uneasy.

Chien had been in ATLAS as long as Patty and was well aware of her intuitions when it came to danger. "Kay," he replied a little uneasy, "I'll get to it." Turning to Alastar he said, "Hey, lets double check your Dagger L, make sure it good to go."

Now

Patty still felt uneasy, especially since she had to use an Aile pack rather then her Doppelhorn. She wasn't used to the speed of an Aile striker and rather preferred to direct fire support with the Doppelhorn, but O'Connor had planed the mission and she had no say. All she could do was hope it went according to plan.

Mao was sitting uncomfortably in his new ATLAS uniform that he was forced to wear before entering the operation. Looking around the shuttle he found there was nothing of interest so he decided it was best to look out at the three Aile Daggers that were going to escort him and his team. Eventually he got bored of staring and decided to open a communications between the three MS. "Sooooo. Who are you lucky people who are escorting me and the other mechanics? I know a certain Shyne is here in her conceited self, but who are you other two?" Mao knew it wasn't all that appropiate for this at the current time, but his boredom got the best of him.

Alastar might have found amusement in his rather apathetic feelings towards the change in uniform, as opposed to the more mixed ones amongst his comrades, had he been aware of it. He was, however, not. Far more focused on the maintenance of his machine, the pilot had loosed his jacket to keep it from snaring as he worked.

What he did notice was the lack of parts, it seemed to him, for many of their mobile suits. ATLAS was noticeably short on AQM/E-units for the various mobile suits. He reluctantly had accepted it would likely take a miracle to obtain one, or a performance on the field damn near one, which was something he wasn't sure he could pull off.

With a slight sigh he returned to work, trying to improve the calibration on the left leg thruster and coax a bit more thrust out of his unit as a result...

"You don't think OMNI or ZAFT found him do you?"

"Blegh," was Cherryh's reply to Wayans, his eyes and tongue lulling to one side of his face. "I think OMNI and their silly protocols must have tamed me far too much," he said.

"'ey!" Turning his seat to face the various stations on the bridge. "You, keep glued to the sensors. Don't ignore it even if you believe it's insignificant or only appeared for an instant. Or pipe up immediately if you think we're being jammed. "And you, tell our away team to keep one eye on their mission and another on their surroundings. Eye out for anything suspicious and navigate with caution around places of a likely ambush--and yes I know we're in a blasted debris field.

"See to it all mobile suits are prepared for launch with one team on standby to head out now--we can have the teams rotate if we're gonna be out here for a while. And relay all of this to the other ship."

"Oh yeah," finally turning back to Wayans, "your question. Honestly, I don't know what this Lorenzo guy is like or who he is, making it hard to guess if he's been captured or running late or stabbed us in the back or trying to lose someone tailing him.

"And unless OMNI or ZAFT can somehow pinpoint are general vicinity from the video broadcast then finding him is probably the only other way the may be able to find us. Pray for peace but prepare for war, they say"

Aura Shyne

Aura stayed momentarily silent before she noticed that neither Enzo nor Patty would humour the mechanic. All the venom of her response was loss due to the long pause.

"Lucky? You're the lucky one crewman. We were handpicked by Commander O'Connor. We're all luck to fight for ATLAS."

As the young Ensign babbled angrily with the reprogrammed wording instilled in her mind. The Sight of the missing ship could be vaguely seen in the distance.

Wayans

Wayans nodded as he quickly sent out the commands and the bridge crew teetered away.

"For us to succeed we need to avoid any more confrontations."

"Well lady, I don't think I asked for your comment, now did I? Haha, I'm just messing with you, I'll settle down now. The other two seem serious, so you wouldn't want to get in trouble either." He was sort of having fun now, but from the silence of the other pilots, he could tell they were saying "Shut up" in their heads.

Chien

Wiping sweat off his brow, Chien couldn't shake the uneasy feeling in his gut after talking with Patty. He was currently double checking all systems on his Aile Dagger L hoping no issues came up.

Unfortunately the read out was indicating a problem in the right leg.

"Shoot, is it a malfunction?" He looked over the information coming up, "Hmmm, hey Tech Monkeys!" He called out of the cockpit, "Did one of you leave something inside my Dagger L?"

"Uh," on of the techs said looking up at Chien hanging out of the cockpit, "I am missing a wrench."

"Are you trying to get me killed! I swear, where'd they dig you up from! FIX IT!!!"

Patty

"Chief Mao," Patty said after listening to the only thing that Aura could say that she would agree with, "I'm Lieutenant J.G. Patricia Johnson, and I'm ordering you to..." She didn't finish her sentence as she noticed what looked like the silhouette of a Drake class in the distance. After zooming in on the area she was sure of it.

"Alright, we're almost there people. All Mobile Suits disengage from the shuttle and begin approach towards the as of yet unidentified Drake class. Once we confirm its friendly we'll bring the shuttle in closer."

After issuing her orders the Aile Dagger L she was piloting separated from the shuttle and ignited its thrusters and approached the Drake class.

Aura and Enzo

The two Ensigns disengaged and followed Patty's lead. Aura's 'Elle' gracefully pulled up beside Patty's unit while Enzo trailed behind.

"That is defiantly the Hedland" Said an oddly soft spoken Aura.

"What happened to it?" Enzo soundly exclaimed.

The ship was in bad shape the engines weren't even lit and there was no lights on in any of the bridges. It appeared to be dead in the water.

"Lt. Johnson..." Said Aura "I'm can't reach them at all, Their not responding to our beacons"

Patty

Both of the Ensigns under her command seemed unnerved by the seemingly lifeless ship, and Patty couldn't blame them, she felt a bit spooked too.

Since the Hedland wasn't responding to their IFF beacons she'd have to think of some other way of establishing contact, before deciding to board the ship. Boarding without any information was dangerous and was going to be a last resort.

"Shyne, cover my six," Patty ordered, "I'm going in closer to inspect the bridge. It may be a trap, so its better if only one of us gets close. "She then issued orders to Enzo, "Cagliari, scan the area for any signs of activity, could be another ship around here just waiting to pounce."

As she began to move forward towards the bridge she radioed the shuttle, "Start moving up, we may have to board the Hedland without any information, so break out the small arms."

The bridge was still dark as Patty placed the Aile Dagger L's left hand on it making hard contact.

"Crew of the Hedland, we are fellow comrades from ATLAS sent to assist you. Please respond." As she spoke she began to wonder what had happened to the ship. Had she been ambushed while they escaped.

Mao heard the radio in, and did as prompted. Going from the back of the ship and forward distributing Sub-machine guns and Pistols, He finished and headed back to the cockpit of the shuttle.

"If we're going to have to breach the ship I think we'll come under attack by our own forces. I think it'd be best if we waited for any response...or maybe you Dagger pilots can search for life signs with thermal signatures?" Mao watched as the pilots moved the shuttle closer to the Drake-Class. He gripped the pistol in his hand with hope that he wouldn't need to use it, as the shuttle came within boarding distance.

Enzo was silent as he quietly scanned the ship, but it was difficult to discern but their appeared to be power within the ship.

Patricia was greatede with the tinny voices of some panicked crewman. "This is Crewman Anderson of the Hedland we're trying to open the catapult doors but have lost power."

Ensign Shyne was quick to assist. She quickly located herself near the catapult door and plugged her hand into the emergency release panel. The Door now powered by Ensign Shyne's Dagger Elle was able to open.

"Is it safe?" asked Enzo with an obvious concerned tone.

Patty

"Chief Mao, I understand your concern," Patty replied, "Breaching the ship is our last resort."

A crewman of the Hedland responded to her message, hearing the quality of his voice she wondered what she sounded like in skin talk. "Crewman Anderson, this is Lieutenant J.G. Patricia Johnson. One of my team is currently opening the catapult door. I'll come to the bridge as soon as I land and you can update me as to what happened."

Hearing Enzo voice his concern Patty removed her Dagger L's hand from the bridge and towards the hangar. "Cagliari, stay outside the ship with your Dagger L and keep an eye on things till I give you the okay to land. Once we're sure things are safe we'll charge up our Dagger L's batteries."

Rather then land inside the ship she had the hand of the Dagger L grab onto a hard point. "Chief Mao, lets bring the shuttle into the hangar. Ensign Shyne, leave you Mobile Suit there so the door remains powered and accompany me into the hangar."

With that said she opened the cockpit hatch and attached a booster pack to her normal suit and flew into the hangar. Touching down she waited for Aura and the shuttle and hoped somebody from the Hedland would show up to take them to the bridge.

Enzo nodded quietly and pulled back keeping his eyes on the Hedland and the nearby asteroids. He was feeling overwhelmed, Patricia and Aura had suddenly transformed into these two capable soldiers. O'Conner had taught him how to pilot a mobile and he was confident in that aspect, but Patricia and Aura had something he lacked.


Ensign Shyne unbuckled herself from her seat, attached a small booster back identical to lt Johnson's and opened her cockpit. She touched down near, and instinctively activated the built in light on her helmet and shone it into the hangar. She could not see much at all 3 maybe 4 daggers but no sign of any of the maintenance crew.

Then it hit her. By breaching the catapult door like that did she just suck the whole maintenance crew out into space? Sweat suddenly began to form on her brow then there was suddenly movement inside. A far door opened and a person in an EA pilot suit suddenly emergenced from a slow opening door.

Aura bit her lip and reached for her pistol, glancing quickly at Patricia. The fleet had only just recieved their Atlas issue uniforms, the Hedland was cut off from the rest, it would be normal for them to be still wearing EA issue clothing.

The Nosi

Wayans


"Cherryh!" Wayans shouted all of a sudden. "our spotters have picked up an irregularity in the asteroid belt, there was a small collision around 600 kilometers yellow 6 A" He said. "This happened 30 minutes ago, I suggest we..."

The main was suddenly cut off by the not so intense voice of Briana Water's herself.

"Order the mobile suit's to launch. Whatever that was will be here soon, and thanks to our friend O'Connor it is most likely not friendlies."


Mathew O'Conner

O'Conner was no fool he knew where the majority of his pilots were, he suddenly burst through the doors of the pilot lounge the moment the alarm sirens rung.

His face red and his temperment at it's normal.

"Are you all deaf move it now! The last one out of this lot to be fully suit and prepped to launched will be met with serious disciplinary actions! That goes for you too, Merc!" With that he was gone probably at the hangar already or something inhuman like that.

Mao and the shuttle Floated right into the hanger beside the Daggers that belonged to the ship. They landed right behind an armed Aura Shyne casting light on the person who had just come out of the far door. Mao put his helmet on and headed straight out the shuttle. And just as the door opened so did his mouth.

"Hellooooo? Anybody home because us ATLAS guys are here to help out." Mao did this to hopefully disarm Aura and make the guy who just come in a little more comfortable so they could begin the operation as soon as possible.

Patty

As Aura touched down beside her Patty tried to take note of everything around them in the hangar, when a door opened on the other side. At first she was tempted to act as Aura did and draw her side arm, but she stayed cool for the moment. That is until the shuttle touched down behind them and Mao popped out and gave an unusual greeting.

She decided to try an communicate with the person in the EA normal suit, "Hello, we've been sent from the Nosi to assist you. What exactly happened here?"

The youngman was easily identified as a cadet. He ushered them to a safer part of the ship quickly. Lt. Johnson and the mechanic team following him, the Two ensigns staying on patrol.


He brought them to the infirmirary were they were met by an Ensign Alec.

Alec quickly explained the situation to Lt. Johnson while Mao and his team were ushered to what was left of the engine room where they heard the rest of the story.

What happened to the Hedland was a collosal accident, and it most certainly a big loss to ATLAS.

Ensign Alec, sighed as he glanced at Patricia a woman he never met before. He saluted, "Ma'am, the Captain has fallen Ill, and is incapable of manning his post. Given our Situation, you're the head officer of this ship and the only one eligible to lead this ship."
