[OOC: Ah, well... It seems my connection is still not trouble free and I am now trying to write this post for the 3rd time. :evil: Because the human part is not finished, I will post the Loroi part first. I hope you don´t mind.]

[Before the meeting:]

Parat Twilightsaber listened carefully what Stormrage had to tell. Thought about for a moment what to answer and then sanzaied her, together with some warm and friendly feelings:

{Fear not sister. You have done well and I appreciate that you got the idea with the failsafe. I will use these codes wisely. But, at least for now, we are save and you can rest now. I am sure we will need you and your skills...}

[At the meeting:]

Spoiler: show
Twilightsaber looked into the eyes of her crewsisters, as none of them had answered her question, yet. That was not what she had expected. She closed her eyes for a moment, to concentrate on how to continue. She was tired now, too...

{Well... I suggested to their "Captain", that we could arrange some kind of training together, so we could learn more about each others capabilities. He insisted on discussing that with his officers. What do you think about that matter, Nelopaio? We should as well help them at least with some basic things: They are struggling to create some basic needed medicaments for us, like painkillers, etc... Softsapphire, maybe you could help this "Doctor Black" with that problem?; Copperspears status has not gotten better, she is still in coma. Paiad, could you look into that and see if we could help them with their... basic medicine?
However, I suggest that we all should rest before we start with those problems.
Any other things to add?}

Paiad lifted her hand for moment that she wanted everyones attention. She has also an small canister in her another hand.
{I will do as you requested. I also wan't to tell that I have looked on some of their hygienic products and I say they are quite safe to use. Some of them may cause irritation on eyes or mouths, so be carefull with them. Just don't use anything marked with any of these or similar warning symbols.}
She showed the canister to anyone and continued privately to Twilightsaber.
Spoiler: show
{I also know that one of hair care products includes herbital component, which have mild soothing effect. Should we reveal that we have examined one of their ships, lie to them by finding it 'accidentally' or do we only wash the hair of woundeds to get them relax?}

[And the human part. Thanks to Beliskner!]


Spoiler: show
[SHI?] Hadrid rised his eyebrow.

[You know them, Commander?] -Captain said.

[A bit, they have military contracts with Earths Government and they are specialized in HI-tech engineering, but basically they are simply tech thieves...]

[Wow... that's harsh... Why would TCA work with such people?] - Chief Engineer asked

[Isn't that obvious? The whole 65% of TCA budget is used only to fund bureaucracy and earth itself. With fleet to maintain, crews to be paid there is no much money left for research and development.]

[I never thought that you are "anti-imperialist", commander.] -Captain answered, after sipping on his cup of coffee.

[It's not about being pro or against, simply I think money coming from colonies should be spent for ships and research not for luxury life and retirements of aging 20 billions men at earth.]

[A bold claim, to accuse earth of licentiousness, Aldean... Its true, that the colonies "pay", but you don't count how much "we" invested in them.] - Chief Engineer said quite irritated by younger officer

[I don't recall Aldea being founded by Earth, but by Mars industries which wanted to make an permanent outpost for mining operations in that sector...] - Hadrid snap back.

[Enough, how much I like good conversations, we descend from the topic. Hadrid you asked me in elevator about a salvage trip. Chief Abramovic will oversee the operation with second shift while we turn the ship around and make preparations for departure.] - Captain said

[And what I am supposed to do, Sir?]

[Get a nap and some rest. You are on duty since first shift, while the third is about to step in.] - the Captain answered.


Then, Roland commented on the current situation. Captain Blake looked over to the Seargent, sitting there instead of 1st Lieutenant Wolffe, an uncommon sight on such an officers meeting. He rubbed his chin and then answered him:

[Well... ths brings us to the next point of our agenda. Most of them are now sealed in the guest quarters and are only allowed to leave with the permission of Hadrid or me. However, we might need their help in whatever lies before us. Therefore I would like to give them diplomatic status, as you already suggested. Before anyone anyone of you now freaks out: this only implies that they can leave the quarters to non sensitive areas, like the messdeck, the training area, etc... However, they will not get back their weapons and will be guarded if they leave their quarters. We could for example arrange some kind of combined training exercises and would be able to lern more about them and what they are able to do... What do you think?]

[There is another thing, that belongs to that topic, Sir.]

[What is is?]

[For time being we should use only "feminine part of the crew" for direct contact with our guest. Just to be sure... We wouldn't want any incidents right now..]

[Well... that could be a problem. The majority of our crew is male... And what kind of "incident" do you mean in particular?]
The Captain raised an eyebrown and looked directly into his First officers eyes.

[Sexual, sir] - Hadrid said without single body reaction, like a machine.

Blake could only stare at him for a brief moment.

[I beg your pardon?]

Charlie`s face lost color at the thought that he had confused the diplomat with unsubtle behavior. In a swift remedy to his possible offence, Charlie resolved to give as much factual information as possible, and hope for the best.

[I fear the fault lies with me, for the confusion.]

[As you may have noticed our two species seem inexplicably similar, your appearance would only be disturbing in so much as we look alike. Although very few of us would be honestly disturbed by it, most of us want to like your species if nothing else then because you look like us.]

[I miss interpreted you questions context, for this please accept my most humble apologies, I meant no offense.]

[I am sorry for the way I have acted, if it has bothered you in anyway. All of us on the ship have known each other for a considerable amount of time, most of us know each other like family. It can be difficult for myself, and the crew, to adjust to new faces, needless to say that we are not even the same race.]

[As for male to female interactions it would be no different, among friends at least, than how you would treat other female members of your crew. Although, you may notice that women receive some special treatment from men.]

[I hope this clarifies things a little more for you. If there is anything I can more I can explain. I'll try my best to be clearer.]


Charlie finished speaking and was genuine in his intentions to clarify any topics that Stormrage may ask upon.


Stormrage's expression softened subtly,the traces of a smile touching her lips, "There is no need to be worried Charles Aldridge, you are being very polite and courteous! It is nice to know Humaniti wants to like us as well for we are just as intrigued by humanti for similar reasons."

Stormrage takes a step closer to Charlie looking up into his big brown eyes with wonder in her expression, "...In all the known species the Loroi Union has encountered in its many millennium of existence we have never encountered a species so similar to the Loroi like humaniti! It is a wonderful discovery the meeting of our two species!!"

She nods accepting his answer, "Yes, were a male Loroi on-board our vessel he would also receive some special treatment from myself and my crewsisters."

She pauses lowing her eyes and the ice pack from her head - rubbing her chin with the back of her icepack holding hand in a Very human expression as if pondering weather to ask a sensitive... potentially embarrassing question.

Then she looks up into his eyes her deep green gaze soft and open, "Charles Aldridge, may I touch your face? Your skin tone is fascinating. Loroi skin is blue because our blood is blue. I'm curious about humaniti, its one thing to see a being that looks similar but to really know how similar we are touch is the simplest at least on the surface way?"

Stormrage said with a subtle smile tinging her lips.

[There is no need to be worried Charles Aldridge, you are being very polite and courteous! It is nice to know Humaniti wants to like us as well for we are just as intrigued by humanti for similar reasons.]


Charlie`s face lost all the built up tension at the revelation that he did not offend, the pretty blue women in-front of him. He decided it would best to let her finish speaking. To his utmost surprise she stepped closer leaving her heart stopping close at little more than two feet, and yet she continued speaking with out missing so much as a beat.


[...In all the known species the Loroi Union has encountered in its many millennium of existence we have never encountered a species so similar to the Loroi like humaniti! It is a wonderful discovery the meeting of our two species!!]


She nodded her head in acknowledgement of his description of male tendencies of differential treatment of females.

Stormrage then paused for a moment she looked downwards ever so slightly, almost considering something to say. She lowered the ice pack from her head and rubbed her chin with the back of hand, an expression not unlike one of deep puzzlement in Humans. However since Charlie did not know if this meant the same in Loroi as it did in Humans he could only guess. The answer came quickly enough...


[Charles Aldridge, may I touch your face? Your skin tone is fascinating. Loroi skin is blue because our blood is blue. I'm curious about humaniti, its one thing to see a being that looks similar but to really know how similar we are touch is the simplest at least on the surface way?]


I... I... I don`t see the harm in it. It... won`t be a problem, go ahead... Charlie said with a stutter, the apprehension showing clearly on his face yet he did not look away. He sucked in a quick breath and awaited hopefully gentle touch of the blue lady.

In the meeting:

Spoiler: show
"I'd like to see what the Loroi are capable of. ' Roland nodded and thought for a minute. "If You like I can arrange some basic drills, evacuation and anti-boarding drills. anything more complex would require more, fluid communications I'm not sure my people are well enough versed in Trade to handle tactical communications without some effort."

As for incidents, and using only female Personnel I don't think that would be at all possible. I Don't have the female personnel to provide a security escort to more than one or two of their people at a time. But I can assure you every marine on this ship is a professional... They aren't likely to risk compromising security for a quick roll with an alien...even one who looks human."


He didn't sound annoyed or insulted, He actually smiled slightly as he spoke. as if he understood the possible problems having a ship load of very attractive, very exotic looking women on board.
"I'm not keeping track of it, but I'm pretty sure anyone here on the ship who has the itch has probably found someone to work off energy with. If they haven't odds are they aren't going to score with someone who doesn't even speak the same language....baring curiosity, or a bet, I think most of the crew will Keep it in their pants."

Sitting in on the impromptu staff meeting, Nelopaio is mostly quiet, taking it all in until Twilightsaber questions her directly... Taking a moment to sort her answer, she nods slowly, {I can see some wisdom in that suggestion, Mizol... However, I would also wish to exercise caution. It would be a good way to reveal ourselves more than we might wish, and we know VERY little about them, beyond their ambassador. Even simple operational procedures might be odd to both sides. In the end, however, it will help distract the younger crew from whats happened, and for that alone, I'm solidly in approval. They need something to do.} she sends via Sanzai, her undertone one of consideration, then of firm resolve at the end, her amethyst eyes fixed on Twilightsaber, {We also need to arrange a meeting to discuss the capabilities of this... Craft, and any possible tactics that could be undertaken to allow us all to leave this system intact. We all know those scout ships never work alone.}

Stormrage's expression shifted to one of delight... her pretty green eyes widening in excitement briefly.

Then she turns pensive as if slightly worried but she places the ice pack in her hand back into her helmet as she steps closer. Looking deep into his eyes she lifts her hand very gently to his cheek... hesitating just a moment... as if what she was about to do was... somehow trespassing in some inscrutable social fashion of the Loroi. Then her eyes soften with... affection'?'... a tenderness that is hard to read...

Her touch is.. well bizzarre. Charlie felt a surge of... something. Like a electrostatic pulse but not at the point of contact but in his skull. Her flesh was unexpectedly cool... not cold... just cool. Her flesh was soft - certainly not the iron hard power he'd expected. No different than any human female touch. Standing this close the fragrance of fresh sea water was clearly noticeable in her pretty blonde hair.

She remarks softly, "...oh! So warm..."

Her touch was gentle, tender. Her emerald gaze never wavering and her eyes almost seeming to glow with an inner light... But what was significant to Charlie is he could feel her touching his mind. In his mind she was a silhouette of color vibrant green and yellow with swirls of reddish orange glowing pulsing! He could not explain it but he 'felt' her passions, her fiery lusts, her storming rages.. but also her unyielding bravery, and vast frightening power... like a goddess touching his soul... she was beautiful! Charlie could not put it to words or hear any words or feel any specific emotions... it was wholly like Nothing he had ever experienced before in his life! She was not seizing his mind or invading... she was just... THERE - wholly and fully like he had never touched the being of another person ever before! It was terribly intimate and MAGNIFICENT!!

To the Loroi...
Spoiler: show
In the mindscape of their communal awareness of each other all Loroi can sense the mental signature of living beings around them to some degree or another. The crewsisters could feel the 31 presences of their fellow loroi including the small but bright signature of their newborne charge - 'Amber-Eyes'. His young mind casting about touching their in curiosity and child wonder occasionally but clinging to close contact to his mother 'Yellow-Sun'.

Then... suddenly there was another 32nd presence! One of their crewsisters was touching another mind... it was clearly Stormrage but the mind was so very odd! The Loroi were still getting over that all the humans around them were alive and moving and clearly living beings but did not register on the signature sense no matter how close they were. Now this new mind by proxy noticed in contact with Stormrage was like a black shape on black canvas outlined and identified from the background of darkness... there clearly but no details determinable. A shape a definite mental presence but shrouded in blackness. A human mind! Stormrage must be touching a human... physically!

Then just as suddenly the human mind vanished as contact was broken... by Stormrage.


Storm's reaction was to smile gently and comment, "...ah. There you are..."

She removed her hand from his cheek stroking it ... clearly affectionately and stepped back.

Suddenly she was gone from his mind - her fiery lovely presence removed and again... he felt himself alone in his mind.
But now he knew what it felt like to be truly alone having felt what it meant to NOT be alone. Almost like loosing a close friend...

"Thank you Charles Aldridge. You are very kind and I am appreciative. I must rest now... for weariness saps my strength. Is there anything else?"

Then just as suddenly the human mind vanished as contact was broken... by Stormrage.


The "discussion" in the meeting suddenly came to an end. None of the Loroi there or somewhere else on the ship could say, think or sanzai something for this brief moment. This was uncommon and not what anyone would have expected to happen. As the link to the human was broken, the Loroi assembled in Twilightsabers quarter looked at each other, as everyone could feel the tension building up in that room.

Twilightsaber and anyone else knew, that Stormrage had crossed a red line with her behavior.

{Touching a human, a male (!), physically... trying to enter or read his thoughts at least to some degree... Wasn´t she aware how unpleasant this felt to the human ambassador? Does she want to scare him and the others? Why was she getting so close with a human male in the first place?}

After all this rushed through the Mizol Parats head, she formed a sharp and direct thought and sanzaied it to Stormrage. A human would have probably yelled at her for this behavior, but what she sanzaied her was nor really that strong or in any way painful. However, she knew about her current state of mind, how tired and exhausted she was, so this sanzai she was about to send, was most likely causing her a migraine attack and that was no accident...*

{I´m way to forgiving with that particular Teidar...} she thought for herself and then sanzaied to Stormrage:

[What are you doing there? Explain yourself at once!]

[You can roll if you can block that part of the sanzai with a successful roll on your block power, however that will have a penalty (not sure how that translates in English) of 2 because of your tiredness and exhaustion.]


For the human side:

Spoiler: show
Just in the moment as Stormrage broke the link to Charlie, his com-unit started beeping and a very familiar voice spoke to him:

[Noel to Sergeant Aldrige, are you lost somewhere? You still haven´t come back to the medbay. Lucky you that Murasaki isn´t here... However, you better get back here. That meeting won´t last forever... Noel out.]

Post Re: [RP]Cydonia Rising [IC]
Stormrage`s face lit up in what could be described as girlish excitement were she human.

She dropped the ice pack into her helmet, and raised her hand slowly... she stopped her hand midway to Charlie`s face, he wondered if his stubble was bothering her.

He was still looking her pretty Green eyes, he saw something in her face - something he could not place, apprehension maybe.

She seemed to get past whatever was bothering her.
But in the time it took her to make up her mind as if to proceed, Charlie went back to memory, back to the spaceport when he was leaving for the TCA academy.

Charlie`s dad hated the aliens, he hated the fear of the unknown - hated the danger that Orgus represented.

Charlie never hated the aliens, just feared the danger of them - his dad had taught him as much.

Charlie came back to the moment, in slow motion he could she her hand reaching ever so slowly the rest of the distance. Those green eyes still locked with his own brown ones, not blinking - she continued to reach across.

He could smell the clean beach air, more strongly than before - maybe she was closer or maybe his senses were just hyper alert.

Her eyes glowed with a warm fire, her fingers drew near...



...and then...her soft finger tips were not what he expecting, not the rough power that he had seen before but the delicate softness of silk. They were also cold, not the biter chill of ice, like cool water on a hot day. Her touch was not all that unpleasant as he was expecting, but there was something else, something like a electric shock. It did not sting, nor was it a jolt - it felt like a heart beat at the base of his head, a heat beat the grew stronger.

Stormrage said something, but he did not hear, he could barely think.

Then in the blackness of the void that was the inside of his mind, there was something there. Something smoky and colorful came in to form, almost human in-shape - somehow in knew Stormrage was that shape and was there in his own mind with him. She was not hurting his mind, forceful oppressing it... just there. She could feel what she felt but not truly what she felt - like a half seen picture. He felt what gave her name "Stormrage" and a passion for life that surpassed his own, he also felt what must have been a solid steel core that lay at her very being - an unyielding mentally. And yet he could say that he did not see it, or know it, just feel it. All of those feeling were gone, replaced by the feeling of her just being there - not forcing or pushing, just there closer than anyone had been before or ever will.

"...ah. There you are..." Stormrage spoke with tenderness that he would not have known before, but now seemed correct - as if she was always delicate, he just could n `t see it.

Charlie barely registered her words, but she was clear - almost too clear.

He felt more than saw her hand stroke across his cheek, it was tender and affectionate.

And then as soon as she was there, she was gone - that timeless moment gone forever. He felt alone, like part of him had left with her. He could not explain it, but something important had just happened - and he was sad it was over.

"Thank you Charles Aldridge. You are very kind and I am appreciative. I must rest now... for weariness saps my strength. Is there anything else?"
[/quote]

Trembling Charlie spoke
[It was...my pleasure... I'm glad you are... happy. I'll leave you to your sleep now.]

He might have been too hasty in his get away, but he could not deny she seem tired now perhaps more so. What he did not what known was that he felt very weak himself.

Hand still shaking he gave a limp salute, he turned from her to leave. A few steps later he turned to look at her, he gave the biggest smile he could muster.

He walked slowly away, slow enough to remain standing, he waited till the door made it`s distinct closing sound. Once it did, he was certain she was gone - he lent against the wall for support. It might have been the second or third shift but he doubted the weakness stemmed from that, it had to do with what happened.

Charlie sat down, and tried to collect his thoughts, tried to figure out what really happened. He did not get far, the only consistent thought was; {This must stay with me alone, I must not speak of this to anyone.

While he was still seated and confused about anything gone on in his brain, his com unit beeped...

[Noel to Sergeant Aldrige, are you lost somewhere? You still haven´t come back to the medbay. Lucky you that Murasaki isn´t here... However, you better get back here. That meeting won´t last forever... Noel out.]

Charlie could not even remember who Noel was, let alone where the medical bay was. However Charlie felt urgency grow in the pit of his stomach, he forced his feet up under him and stood.

He tried to run but still felt weak, he managed to hobble at first and then walk. He walked with the best speed he could muster, he walked faster, the weakness leaving him slowly gave him strength back enough to compose himself. Just as the medbay door came into sight, Charlie stopped.

He breathed deeply, and exhaled - he did so for a few moments to become strong again.

He stepped through the door, and tried to remain inconspicuous as possible.

Stormrage watched as Charles made a curious hand gesture... she could only conjecture it was a display of respect... or perhaps affection... and emotions within her own heart began to roil with a familiar hunger. But it was his clear smile as the door closed that sparked the fires of her desires...

When the door closed she lifted a hand to her breast over her heart which had sped up... her breath coming in excited soft gasps. Even if her mind told her different her body at least told her 'humans were similar enough to Loroi to spark the passion of desire...', at least within her!

Then suddenly...

Caught off guard, mind shields not erected, or expecting the power of the directed thought Stormrage reels... stumbling to lean against a nearby wall. Her head throbbing in protest - all amorous thoughts and passions quelled quite succinctly.

{... 'groan'! Not so forceful... I can hear you! Yes, I touched one of the male human soldiers... Charles Aldridge. I asked his permission first. I did not try to probe or read him... I merely touched his mind... and revealed my presence to his mind. Nothing more. I was... very gentle, he was in no pain... in fact I think he found it pleasurable... as I did as well... He was not frightened or harmed and I learned something useful! Humans.. at least the males are physically attracted to us... trust me I know from body language and speech! They find us very attractive and physically desirable!! You may be able to use this Mizol.

Now before you go being offended... it was not just my personal curiosity... or proclivities; my actions were also a directive from "Still Storm". She wanted me to confirm that Captain Alexander Jardin's lotai was not unique to him only. As I was one of the Teidar tasked with interrogating him I know what touching a human feels like... "Still Storm" wanted confirmation. }

Softsapphire was shocked by Stormrage's emotions.

{And there I thought I was the one to be called xenophiliac... Well, well...}

{Stormrage, when you have taken a good rest, I will request to see you as well. This... experience... you did, it could be more valuable than you might think. And I still want to meet you for the other things in your mind. Anyways, relax. If you think he didn't seem in pain, I can certainly believe you. They may be word-liars, they don't seem to be body-liars.}

Nelopaios face just goes blank for a moment, aside from a very slight twitch in one cheek, and she slowly turns her gaze in the general direction of the sensation, as though staring straight through the interior structure of the ship... She doesn't say a word, or sanzai, or even seem to react at first, aside from that... Then very slowly shakes her head, turning her attention back to the meeting... The Mizol Parat already seemed to be on the case, and it really was more a matter of diplomacy at this time... Which could quickly lead to crew issues... she thinks to herself, wondering if a chemical sedative might be in order for a certain Teidar...

[OOC: Sorry, got terrible sidetracked, so there will only be a small post tonight.]

For the human side, in the sickbay:


Spoiler: show
The door of the sickbay opened and Dr. Noel could see Sergent Aldrige as he came in. He couldn`t help but stare at him for more than a brief moment, as he looked as he had seen a ghost. His face was as white as the sickbays ceiling. He had never seen him like this and stepped closer to get a better look.

[Mon Dieu! Aldrige... ] He took a deep breath. [Corporal Nordstroem is on her way down here... Just go to bed after she is here, ok? And take the rest of your shift off. You look worse than Chief Abramovic after that last engine inspection...]

The door behind them opened and Corporal Nordstroem entered the medbay, a 1,78 tall and skinny woman with shoulder long white-blond hair and blue eyes that looked so cold, that it became a bit frosty in the room. Charlie nodded and went to his quarters, saluted to Noel and Nordstroem on his way out.

[Uhm...Dr. Noel, Sir? Are there now ghosts on Cydonia or did he drink something from Murasakis secret stash?]

[No clue... ] Was the only thing Dr. Noel could answer as they both gazed after Charlie.


At the human meeting:

Spoiler: show
[Sexual?] Captain Blake couldn´t believe what he was saying or thinking there. [I hope everyone aboard this ship takes this as professional as possible. This is no cruise ship and those... guests are not here for the amusement of the crew. I hope I don´t need to go into the details if I say, that I expect that every crewmember knows how to keep his pants closed in... certain situations involving our guests.
However... Sergent, please develop some kind of basic training with them. Drills, some mock fights, etc... Try to find out what they can do without blowing a hole in the ship or killing someone. Maybe you talk to one of their officers directly, together with Hadrid? I think the name of that officer was Nelopaio and she was some kind of first officer of their ship.]


[For Stormrage]

Spoiler: show
Twilightsaber thought for a moment what to do next with this Teidar...

{Stormrage, this is not the time for personal experiments with those humans. Keep your emotions under control or I wont be that friendly next time!}



[At the Loroi meeting:]

Spoiler: show
Twilightsaber sat there with her eyes closed for a brief moment and an expression on her face that would have stroke fear even in the heart of one of those damn shells. Just the blink of an eye later, she was back to normal.

{Well... Nelopaio, maybe you could meet with one of their commanding officers and discuss that matter? You could arrange some kind of training with them for the younger crewsisters, however primitive it might be. What do you think?}

She then switched her attention to Paiad:

{Thats good to know. Maybe you can help their scientists to create some kind of more usable form? Their "Captain" mentioned someone called Dr. Black. Maybe you can talk to him together with Softsapphire to get some more insight about what they know about us and their knowledge in general?}

After a moment more of silence, Nelopaio nods, sitting up just a little straighter, her amethyst gaze more attentive now that she has a clear direction and purpose... {I'll make the request and arrange for both as soon as I can, provided they're amenable to such ideas...} she sanzais, then very faintly smirks in a sort of macabre humor, {I'd imagine they would enjoy the continued structural integrity of their vessel, so a strategy session would likely go over well.} That said, she goes quiet once more, listening as the meeting continues.

Stormrage was not moved and too tired for a protracted battle of wills as she moved to set her armored vacc-suit down next to the bed neatly on the floor pulling her Blaster powercell from the suit's belt compartments, she replied with sanzai somewhat frostily and without focusing it in a private sending but a general one perhaps from fatigue but not likely, { "I understand your concerns, Twilightsaber but just as you have directives to accomplish on this mission... I too have directives that I will also accomplish as well. Directives that come directly from Torrai Command... were Copperspear conscious she would inform you of them but such is not the case. No, I will not reveal all of those directives to you... but I will not fail to accomplish them. It is not my emotions that are out of control... sometimes.. I actually enjoy my tasks. I will not jeopordize the mission. I have just as much interest in seeing it succeed, but I also have my orders. I am going to rest now.. we can ...discuss things when I'm rested. We need to establish a Soroin guard... or watch... even if unarmed at our shuttle. I'll organize a duty regimen when I'm rested. And I still think you should push for our shuttle to be considered a diplomatic Loroi Union Embassy in Extremis. But that is a... 'discussion' for when my head is not throbbing in pain... Rest well crewsister." }

Storm draws her blaster and and loads it, detaching her holster from her bioplas armor and setting it on the nightstand next to her bed along with her Psi-amplifier circlet. Then she goes to the lavatory turning the shower on she steps in letting the refreshing water pour over her as she unseals her bioplas crewsuit armor and under the stream of water undresses... letting the bioplas armor absorb the hydration ...crude as it is to replenish itself. The normal storage rack in a Loroi sleeping suite would have a much more efficient means to repair/nutrient enrich and 'feed' a bioplas suit but this would do. Finished she let the water pour down and clean her hair of the day's fatigue. She was uncertain of the bottles of cleaning solution within the shower so she ignored them.

Stepping out she found a closet with many jumpsuits and spare hangers and hung her bioplas armor on one of them. The hairdryer was a convenient discovery and she made use of it joyfully as she toweled off dry... but still nude. She pondered what to wear to bed as her bioplas was still wet slowly absorbing the hydration and bodily wastes from her skin for sustenance... she then glumly considered she had not eaten anything in many hours. But figured it would be best for Paiad and Softsapphire to figure out what in the human food stores was 'safe' to eat.

Walking into the bedroom she found a dresser that had simple white clothing though it did not fully cover... she choose a large {Tee-shirt} shirt that was obviously too large fer her but did allow her to walk around somewhat covered and modestly as it hung down to her mid-thigh... at least in her room. It would do for now... as she was going to sleep. She adjusted the temeperature in the suite from the environmental controls until it was comfortably cooler in the room.

She walked over and sat down on the edge of the bed and picked up the ice pack from her vacc-suit helmet held it to her head for several minutes... until the pain subsided. She nodded slightly weariness finally taking its toll.

Then she placed the icepack on the nightstand - just opposite her blaster within easy reach. Storm pulled back the covers and curled up in the bed under them. resting her head upon the pillow. She looked up annoyed the light switch not within reach... a flick or TK power and the switch plunged the room into brief darkness... before the reddish hued nightlight above the bed slowly warmed to life bathing the room in a soft reddish light like soft dim moonlight.

Sleep came fast... and unfortunately... so did the dreams... nightmares of battle and space - brutally slain crewsisters, friends, desperate situations adrift lost in space of life & death and overarching the disproving gaze, unyielding, of her proud and aloof mother Lomisonni ‘Bright-Storm’. Her mind pondered not even consciously...

Why am I always returning to the Deathwind? Can I not move on? All my friends died there... and nothing I did mattered. Spirits help this not happen again... almost did anyways... 31 is better than 0... I should feel blessed ... why do I still feel ... failure... Mother why am I never good enough for you?

Her mind shifted to a collage of shifting thoughts and fears of deep subconscious sleep and drifting fancy... the last image being a tall dark-haired brown-eyed human marine with a sweet smile of affection... charles...

Charlie stepped through the door, while trying and failing to remain unseen. Charlie felt like everyone was staring, although he may have been just jumpy.

[Mon Dieu! Aldrige... ] Charlie heard the french Medic speak, truthful he had forgotten the mans name. Noel something, Charlie couldn`t remember the fatigue must be making think slower.

{It`s just fatigue, nothing else...}

[Corporal Nordstroem is on her way down here... Just go to bed after she is here, ok? And take the rest of your shift off. You look worse than Chief Abramovic after that last engine inspection...]

{My shift? It must have ended, I kept on deck though to the next. Thats why I feel so weak... Well at least I can sleep now.}

Charlie waited a few moments for Corporal Nordstroem a lanky blonde-white haired maiden, however her most striking feature was her blue eyes - they could freeze the blood of the hardest Drill Sargent easily. Most forgo looking her in eyes over much, but she was pleasant enough. However at this particular moment Charlie did not feel to have the strength to bandy words over much.

Charlie wasted no time with pleasantries, he saluted and made a hasty escape.

Charlie briefly considered a shower, but felt more of his strength ebb - he promptly chartered a course for the armory. He still had his weapon and EVA suit.

Charlie arrived at the armory, and dealt with the formalities as swiftly as possible, freed from some of his burden, Charlie made straight and true for his quarters.

He tried to avoid all contact with other people, and did so. During
the trek to Charlie`s room, his thoughts turned to what happened at the guest quarters.

{What happened exactly, I wonder. It wasn`t all bad... I think. I mean, I liked it maybe... I don`t know. Whatever she did, It needs to stay with me.}

Charlie arrived at his room with out much trouble, He quickly changed from his work suit to a Tee Shirt and shorts. He rubbed his head, nothing hurt but he felt like it should.

{I'm sure something happened...}

Charlie climbed into his bunk, and got under the blankets.

{...So why is it that I want to see her again...}

Charlie lay down and felt gravity increase the thousand fold, pulling him into sleep filled oblivion.

{...I'll just make sure she is ok, and has everything she needs...}

Charlie fell into a deep sleep, free of the worries that built up. Oddly he had a smile on his face...

For the human side
Spoiler: show
Captain Blake thought for a moment and looked at Sergent Steen.
[I'll expect your suggestions for those drills tomorrow.

He then drank the rest of his coffee and looked around.
[Is there anything else we should discuss now? If not, I declare this meeting closed.


For the Loroi side:

Spoiler: show
Twilightsaber looked into the eyes of her crewsisters. Were they alright or frightend by the situation? Well, there was still a lot to discuss with those humans

{Well, I suggest that we adapt to their sleepcycle and rest now. Is there anything else we should talk about at the moment?}

With meeting ending Hadrid rosed and head towards officer's quarters. Passing main hall and locked doors to guest rooms he stopped and turned forward men guarding it.

[Keep those doors closed and locked, no one is allow to enter or leave this room without MY or Captain's authorization. Is that clear?]

[Yes, sir] said marine from guard detail.

[Good, make sure you tell that to next shift. Carry one.]

Seeing nod from marines, Hadrid continued toward his room. Officer's quarters have similar pattern to guest rooms, small lobby and 2-3 bed cabins with private bathrooms with exception of captain's and first officer's cabins. While Captain cabin have 2 rooms and bathroom for his own disposal, Hadrid's room is in size of typical officers room but with only one bed. Instead 2 beds there is desk with computer screen on it, chair and small bookstand filled with old paper books(most of them concern are engineering, mechanics and another technical things) and standard wardrobe. Also there are (privately bought) 2 square upholstered in black leather stools placed against the wall used by guests.

Hadrid was about to enter his cabin when he saw ensign Kitty Anderson approaching in hurry.

[Commander, Sir Do you got a minute?] Kitty said catching Ferox in door.

[Kitty can it wait? I could use a good sleep.]

[Well... I wanted to talk, much is happening around lately.]

Hadrid lowered his head truing to focus [Alright, get in but be quick about it.]

Entering Hadrid's room Kitty as always, saw small mess on his desk(opened several books, countless sheets of paper filled with sort of calculations). Hadrid sat at his chair and looked at her.

[Ok let's hear it.]

[Ok.] she closed doors behind. [How did you find them?]

[Who?]

[Loroi of course, who else?] Kitty grabbed one of stools and sat on it, in front of Ferox.

[Aaa that thing, you are still angry at me?]

[We had this situation before.]

[You are angry at me. Hey that situation with asteroid doesn't count..]

[Excuses, but you are stalling]

[I don't know Kitty, I saw flashes on horizon.]

[That it? 'flashes' you must be lucky or I should say Loroi were lucky.]

[What that supposed to mean?] Hadrid stood up and moved a bit to his wardrobe and started removing his hoody

[Meaning that 'If you didn't saw them at that time, we wouldn't have such problems now' we would simply collect remains.]

Hadrid turned toward her, unzipping his upper part of uniform [You blame me from troubles? Trust me Anderson, I am pissed off the same as you.]

[You are? How so?]

[Well, firstly captain ignores my warning about security, secondly he allows them to have weapon with them, thirdly.. well I feel like captain rolled out red carpet for them... ] he tossed his shirt inside wardobe staying in underwear sleeveless shirt.

[Hm you got that right. What's your opinion about them, I mean loroi.]

[Opinion? Please Kitty I am Aldean officer, I do not have personal opinion.] Hadrid sat back to his chair and started removing his boots.

Kitty exploded with laugh [Now you are joking. I mean it. Some guys were talking..]

[About?]

[Well...] kitty tried to find words [Well don't stop now..]

[Some guys were looking at them and talking among themselves comparing.. you know what I mean]

[I guess, but what's stir about?] Hadrid placed his boots under the table.

[Stir? Why the fuck they are comparing alien's asses?] Anderson jump up from stool in anger

[Because it's what guys do?]

[Why doesn't they measure ours then?]

[Oi they measured it several times already I'm sure of it]

[You hog] Kitty snap back [hey you started]

[Maybe they will give you 'good shiny armor knight' recuse fuck for saving their skins.]

Hadrid looked at her like stoned, sitting in his chair. [What the fuck did you say to me?]

[O I'm sorry did I say it aloud?]

[You did. Why are you in period mode?]

[What? no I don't have one yet]

[Good, I was afraid that you would claw some loroi faces in rage. Kitty amusing at it is I want sleep we will finish this conversation later ok?]

[Fine] she looked at his bed and made provocative posture [my bed is cold at nights]

[Get another warm blanket from quartermaster.] Hadrid said trying to ignore her "offer"

[What?!?] Kitty said walled with response. [Arrr you are such... never mind] She turned and left Hadrid cabin.

Seeing Ensign gone Hadrid quickly opened small closet in floor from which he took bottle of rum and took one big sip. {Damm and that's only the beginning....}

Soon he crawled to his bed...

Frowning in thought o herself, Nalopaio reflects on the days events... Fully intending to have a word with a few people, not the least of which would be her counterpart on the other side of the line, regarding the very real danger the Cydonia herself was in. The other issue would be taken care of beforehand... Sending a simple message to Twilightsaber, requesting that she come to her quarters when she awakens. Too tired to do much more than snag a quick shower, she leaves her armor to absorb it's nutrients as needed, stripping down and crawling into bed...

On the next morning, Twilightsaber awoke and thought for a moment about what had happened yesterday. The situation with the humans was friendly, so far. No hostilities or fights. At least that part of the mission went as planed. However, facing the enemy in such a vessel was not something she was looking forward to. She realized that Nalopaio wanted to speak with her and so she stand up, got dressed and walked to Nalopaios quarter. She had to smile as she realized that she was the first of her crewsister that had woken up this morning. She was a Mizol, without a doubt.
Standing at the door to her quarters, she again realized how much simpler everything was aboard that human ship. A simple button at the door that would let a small speaker emit a sound to indicate that there was someone on the other side of the door. No fancy computer interface, camera or a scanner. Just a simple button. She didn´t know why, but this fact amused her.
She could feel, that Nelopaio was asleep and out of curiosity she had to push that button and could hear a surprisingly loud, buzzing sound. That was not what she had expected...

Startling awake with a... Squeak?... Nelopaio blinks wide amethyst eyes at the room in general, even her damaged sanzai carrying a strong 'what the heck?!' a fair distance before realizing what it actually was... A buzzer... No chimes, nothing pleasant, instead a grating, jarring buzz that reminds her of her own sanzai voice. Huffing, she tosses off the sheets, quickly donning the underlayer of her armor before calling out "Enter!" in her singsong voice... Upon seeing who it is, she motions the Mizol Parat inside, continuing to speak, since she has yet to don the modified amplifier that would allow for reliable sanzai...

To Twilightsaber...
Spoiler: show
"Ah, Mizol, thank you for responding to my message. It would seen that we have a crew issue, which, outside of the diplomatic mission, now falls directly under my purview. First, as acting commander of the crew of the Argent Fire, I'm going to ask your support in formally demanding, under pain of court martial, that these 'orders' of Stormrages be revealed, to the both of us. With Copperspear incapacitated, her responsibilities fall to me, which includes information that would ordinarily be privileged for her alone. I'm not giving Stormrage free reign to run about under unknown orders, and I think you'll agree that it poses an issue... As does her blatantly insubordinate attitude the other night... Which, in all fairness, I'm willing to attribute to excessive strain, and write off with a simple settling of the matter and acknowledgement of the need to maintain discipline. Those are my concerns, Mizol, but I'll only act on them with your agreement, as, in the end, the mission is yours." she says in a clinical, professional tone, donning her armor, then her amplifier, and finally switching to sanzai speech...

{Thereafter, some food is in order... And that discussion with the ranking officers of this vessel.}

As she heared Nelopaios voice, she entered the room. Some kind of voice activated mechanism must have opened the door as she said "enter".

{Clever, those humans... Simple but functional.}

She then listened to what she had to say to her and thought about what she had heared for a moment.

To Nelopaio:
Spoiler: show
{I can understand your concerns and I have a similar opinion on those orders. She could jeopardize and endanger the whole mission with such actions and we need the help of those humans. We have to know what she was ordered to do or if she made that up herself. Scaring the humans is not a wise choice, too. You are acting commander of Argent Fires crewsisters and I support your suggestions. We still have around 600 beats till a human officer arrives and will take some of us to some kind of "dining hall" aboard. I arranged this with the human Captain yesterday, so some of us can test that human food. So we have some time left, to settle that "problem" with Stormrage. What do you think? Maybe you and her could go there, together with 2-3 other crewsisters, so we can test if she can behave in such a situation? If not, we should restrain her to her quarter or decide on other, more severe methods of punishment...}

[OOC: So, a new scene, I hope you like it. Thanks to Beliskner and Charlie! And its time for some music, again (I listened to that as I wrote it, I am not sure if it fits): Link]


Meanwhile for the human side:



After an way to short rest, Hadrid went to the messdeck for breakfast. He entered the room and looked around: the large room was crowded this morning, the tables were nearly all occupied and the line on the serving counter was longer than expected. A few guys played billiard on the tables there, others were watching a movie on one of the larger screens there and some of the ships chess players enjoyed a game or two. He could see the cooks filling the trays at the counter with portions of scrambled eggs, bacon and a few slices of toast. Nearly every food was freeze-dried aboard and most of the crew highly doubt that those "eggs" had ever seen a chicken before.

Standing at the end of the line, he could hear that the voices of the other crew members around him died down almost instantly. However, from the few sentences he had heared, the most discussed thing were those new "guests" aboard and some stories that surrounded them. The most scary one involved Sergent Aldrige and that weaponslocker guest. Sadly, he could only hear the beginning of that story before the discussion ended. Something told him, that he should check out whatever really happened, before such stories spread across the ship.

As Hadrid finally reached the counter, Chief Foster looked at him, smiled and gave him a bigger portion. A full cup of coffee later, the easy part was over and it was time to find a place to sit and eat. Much to his surprise he at once saw a table that was nearly empty, only one person sat there and somehow only stared in his cup of coffee. It was Sergent Aldrige.


Hadrid approached the table and sat on opposite corner of it. Seeing absent minded Aldrige he looked at him and said:

[What is it Sergent? Did you not come to terms with the food today?] Hadrid said, beginning to gobble his meal.

Post Re: [RP]Cydonia Rising [IC]
Charlie had woken well before what would have been his shift, he'd been awakened by dreams that he could not remember and not the comings and goings of crew - which was odd considering he was a very light sleeper.

After a quick shower, Charlie found himself in the mess hall. He thought to come here for food, but did not find the desire to eat it - he got a cup of coffee and found an empty table. Normally he would sit with people he knew but today Charlie found that all he wanted was to remember what he was think about before waking up, it was something important... maybe, Charlie could not remember.

Charlie must have been radiating an aura of "I want to be alone-ness", as none of the seats were filled.

Charlie noticed some tables would periodically all look in his direction, all of these tables had one of the off duty marines in their company.

{That`s odd... Regardless there is only one or two tables... maybe three that look at me.}

Whatever it was; the forgotten dreams, the overly exciting events of yesterday, or the seemly endless attention streaming from the careless observers, the coffee was hardly touched.

Then something strange happened everything seemly quieted down to silence, and when things gradually grew louder, even then, remained quieter than before. Charlie knew that only the captain, who was rarely seen, or Lieutenant Commander Ferox had the effect.

Whomever it was, Charlie did not bother to look up and out of his coffee cup.

[[What is it Sergent? Did you not come to terms with the food today?]

Charlie rose to his feet, in that instinctual military training that had been rung it his his head since he was a boy, and made as if to Salute - Charlie stopped himself when he noted that it was Lieutenant Commander Ferox.

Ferox wasn`t the type to force a salute at breakfast, he was the type of officer that one could go to with problems and not be dismissed out of hand. Charlie had never been the mans office himself but had heard enough of him to know that saluting him was not needed right now.

It matter little however, the commander had already sat and was already eatting some of his food.

[No, sir. Just need a bit of Coffee to perk me up, with our... guest`s arrival it was a long day. One of Docs said I could get some sleep, after I was relived. I was in the medbay just before the... happened. I guess I just needed that little bit more before my shift starts.]

Charlie waited a few moments while Ferox ate...
