[Local] N'Py See@gulremal: <FX> Couple of days later, on the way to the Breen outpost...

[Local] N'Py See@gulremal: <FX> The Unfettered Voice of the Dispossesed appears as a holoprojection, with others gathered for the meeting.

[Local] N'Py See@gulremal: <Voice> Hello there! I'm glad your meeting with Chief Engineer Ittik was fruitfull.

Egzo@HF_Mudd nods. "He had a lot of ideas, him and his people. Some of 'em were kinda... out there, but..."

[Local] N'Py See@gulremal: <Voice> Oh yes, they are always full of ideas, yet not always tempered with wisdom of how to properly apply them.

[Local] N'Py See@gulremal: <Voice> You managed to get the location of the Breen facility where they prepare the drills for deployment. That is good. What do you plan to do next?

Egzo@HF_Mudd looks to the others, Lorri first.

[Team] Lorri@crystyll: um...

[Team] Lorri@crystyll: did we have a plan beyond 'stop them'?

[Team] Warhunter Ku'jho@Domarg: Usually that's called entering into 'aggressive negotiations;..

[Team] Lorri@crystyll: :p

[Team] N'Py See@gulremal: heh, it's up to you

[Team] Istar@anncarise: Heyp! Sorry for being late!

[Team] Warhunter Ku'jho@Domarg: Heya, no worries. All good.

[Team] Egzo@HF_Mudd: We've just been asked what the plan is for dealing with the Breen and their drill(s).

Lorri@crystyll glances back, "Well you know the extent of my strategizing is normally constrained to the negotiating table. But here's what we know:..."

[Team] Istar@anncarise: Ahhh

[Local] Lorri@crystyll: "The target is a Breen orbital facility around a Class-L frozen planet, the only stellar body in it's system which also hosts a small colony on the surface..."

[Team] Istar@anncarise: Just decided to bring Istar as she'd have been along on Thana anyways!

[Local] Lorri@crystyll: "It is believed that the drills are in a series of drydocks on that facility awaiting modification before shipping out, and we have unconfirmed data regarding how heavily armed the place is..."

[Team] Istar@anncarise: As opposed to making an entrance halfway in case it was hard to justify!

[Team] Egzo@HF_Mudd: Fine by me.

[Local] Lorri@crystyll: "But given that it's a primary shipping hub for the region, we can assume on the heavy side I believe, as it is home to the patrols that conquered D'Rexian space"

[Local] Lorri@crystyll: "As for the strategy to take on this place..." she smiles back, "...I figure that's more your domain. But my recommendation would be a stealth incursion"

Egzo@HF_Mudd nods. "Works for me. I don't /always/ gotta go in loud."

Lorri@crystyll perks a brow but resists out loud asking 'really?'. She simply smiles, "Of course. Though I am afraid my knowledge of demolitions is limited, I am unable to say what would be required to disable +

[Local] Lorri@crystyll: + these assets once inside."

[Local] Warhunter Ku'jho@Domarg: Quantum chargesss.

Egzo@HF_Mudd looks to Ku'jho and nods. "That'd do it."

[Local] Lorri@crystyll: "This of course assumes that we are able to get in unnoticed. Without knowing their defenses it is difficult to predict"

[Local] Warhunter Ku'jho@Domarg: Agreed. We would need to know more on them.

[Local] N'Py See@gulremal: <Voice> The drills? *she rises her hand and above it a holo of a drill appears* They are a massive, battleship sized affairs, equipped with impulse engines, thrusters and antigravity system for -

[Local] N'Py See@gulremal: - atmosphere entry.

[Local] Warhunter Ku'jho@Domarg: We could alssso engage the idea of one anti-matter bomb, rather than a team incursssion.

Istar@anncarise appears in range of the holocomm on Thana's bridge, "Our Ghost Operators can help with precisely beaming explosives to vulnerable parts."

[Local] N'Py See@gulremal: <Voice> They have thick armor plating that makes teleportation inside highly improbable. To effectively cripple them, you'll have to gain internal access.

[Local] Istar@anncarise: "Guess it'll have to be going in manual then..."

Egzo@HF_Mudd nods again.

[Local] N'Py See@gulremal: <Voice> There is a multiple of access points *multiple points lit on the drill holo* But they do need an access code or you'll have to deal with all the crazy defense systems that are installed.

[Local] N'Py See@gulremal: <Voice> However, since the Hated Enemy will most likely shut all of these down during their own re-speccing, that might be of secondary importance. The drills are powered by multiple fusion reactors -

[Local] N'Py See@gulremal: - so overloading those was an starting idea. However, Hated Enemy might not keep them online and use the station's power instead. *to Ku'jho* Antimatter explosives, planted by the main fuel storage -

[Local] N'Py See@gulremal: *drill holo zooms inside to one room, close to it's center* should do the trick.

[Local] Warhunter Ku'jho@Domarg: With a team incursssion, I would recommend quantum chargesss, they are lesss volatile than anti-matter in regardsss to handling and moving around.

Egzo@HF_Mudd hmms but nods.

[Local] N'Py See@gulremal: *nods* You're the expert, now we need to figure out how to get you inside.

Egzo@HF_Mudd hms. "Unless one of you ladies can get us one of those access codes, we'll have to do it the old-fashioned way."

[Local] Egzo@HF_Mudd: "That'll take time."

[Local] Egzo@HF_Mudd: "Won't be quiet, either."

[Local] Istar@anncarise: "What kinda code is it? The kind that can be put on a card or the kind you'd have to remember?"

[Local] N'Py See@gulremal: <Voice> Well, if you could plant some kind of sensor drone closer to the facility, I could spy on their comms. Plus you could so some scouting while doing that.

[Local] N'Py See@gulremal: <Voice> Well, if you could plant some kind of sensor drone closer to the facility, I could spy on their comms. Plus you could so some scouting while doing that.

[Local] N'Py See@gulremal: *do

Egzo@HF_Mudd nods, and looks to the Orion(s) again. "Now /that's/ a job for your Ghosts."

[Local] Lorri@crystyll: "Indeed" she looks to Istar with a smile, "What do you think?"

Istar@anncarise nods, "Definitely sounds more efficient than blasting in."

[Local] Istar@anncarise: "We should be able to covertly transport a drone in. Guessing manual control's fine if we aren't inside the drills?"

[Local] N'Py See@gulremal: <Voice> Oh, I was thinking about scouting the defenses. Unless you have AI run drone, I doubt you'll be able to control it manually from far away...

[Team] N'Py See@gulremal: gah, I was thinking about dropping a probe, not a drone, lel. my apologies for the confusion

[Team] Istar@anncarise: OH! hehe

[Local] N'Py See@gulremal: <Voice> Armor plating of the drills will block any comms from the outside. But if you can slip a cloaked probe in the vicinity of the enemy base, I might snoop up some useful info.

[Local] Istar@anncarise: "We got probes, but not cloaked ones..."

[Local] N'Py See@gulremal: <Voice> *looks between Egzo and Ku'jho* I believe KDF have tech to help with that, yes?

Egzo@HF_Mudd hesitates, then nods. "Yeah, we can do that."

[Local] Warhunter Ku'jho@Domarg: We can modify the probe to be cloaked. However, the place may have tachyon ssstyled sssensssorsss for jussst sssuch tactic.

[Local] Egzo@HF_Mudd: Those're expensive. Breen may not bother.

[Local] Warhunter Ku'jho@Domarg: Dependsss on who hasss more of the will to win.

[Local] N'Py See@gulremal: <Voice> Oh, the probe doesn't need to be too close to the base, you can drop it at the system outskirts.

[Local] N'Py See@gulremal: <Voice> My skills and abilities to control the comm signals should do the rest.

Egzo@HF_Mudd hms and nods.

[Team] N'Py See@gulremal: if you guys are okay with this plan, everyone gimme a roll plox

[Emotes] Istar@anncarise: rolls 71 (1-100)

[Emotes] Egzo@HF_Mudd: rolls 65 (1-100)

[Emotes] Lorri@crystyll: rolls 51 (1-100)

[Emotes] Warhunter Ku'jho@Domarg: rolls 87 (1-100)

[Local] N'Py See@gulremal: <FX> Next few days montage: Lorri and Ku'jho overseeing their technicians as they modify the orion spy probe with a cloaking device snatched from one of the KDF probes. Hag'lhr sneaking by a breen -

[Local] N'Py See@gulremal: - patrol, dropping down the probe that immediately cloaks. Voice going into some kind of meditation as she boosts the probe's range.

[Local] N'Py See@gulremal: <FX> Istar and her data specialists parsing through the comm data snooped up the the drone, pointing at a ceratin communication...

Istar@anncarise appears on comms to report findings to everyone, "Well, looks like the Breen are behind schedule. The drills won't be ready for another six weeks."

[Local] Egzo@HF_Mudd: "That's one bit of good news."

[Local] Warhunter Ku'jho@Domarg: Good, then their sssecurity may be lacking.

[Local] Istar@anncarise: "Bad news is, they're bringing in help to speed things up. They're expecting a ship with engineering specialists in bout 48 hours."

[Local] Istar@anncarise: "And they're not gonna be travelling alone, either."

[Local] Warhunter Ku'jho@Domarg: Then let'sss hit the ssspecialissstsss asss a pirate attack idea.

Egzo@HF_Mudd nods to the Gorn.

[Local] Warhunter Ku'jho@Domarg: Can we know more on the ssspecialissstsss. Ssship data, sssecurity essscort?

[Local] Istar@anncarise: "Take out the biggest threat first. Makes sense."

[Local] Warhunter Ku'jho@Domarg: Or do we jussst want to focusss on hitting the drillsss already presssent?

Egzo@HF_Mudd points out on a simplified diagram what the probe found.

[Local] Istar@anncarise: "The comms didn't say anything about the incoming ships, just a ship called 'Vicious' and escort. Could be a single one but I got a feeling they're gonna be more alert than that."

[Local] Egzo@HF_Mudd: "Standard Breen mobile outpost, but it looks like they've stripped out the warp drive, slotted in more shields and weapons. Four drydocks around it. One's got a cruiser in for maintenance."

[Local] Egzo@HF_Mudd: "One drill in each of the other three. Half a dozen turrets around each."

[Local] Istar@anncarise: "Our Naval Intelligence boy looked up the named ship, it's a Chel Boalg warship, or however ya pronounce it. No clue bout the scorts, though."

[Local] Egzo@HF_Mudd: "And some raider packs patrolling the system, like I said."

[Local] Warhunter Ku'jho@Domarg: Then the bessst idea would be the incursssion team to plant charges, preferably within the next thirty six hoursss.

[Local] N'Py See@gulremal: <Voice> Hmmm, capturing that incoming ship could be our way in.

[Local] N'Py See@gulremal: <Voice> I mean, if you believe you can pull that off?

[Local] Egzo@HF_Mudd: "Yeah, we can do that."

[Local] Istar@anncarise: "Now there's an idea!"

[Local] N'Py See@gulremal: <Voice> I mean, they most likely have the access codes, right? With them and the ship, we could walk straight in...

[Local] Istar@anncarise: "Think it's worth a try. Go in, jam their comms and hit 'em. Worst case they go down fighting, and we eliminate their backup."

Egzo@HF_Mudd nods again.

[Local] Istar@anncarise: "Either way, works in our favour."

[Local] N'Py See@gulremal: <Voice> *to Istar* I can boost your jamming signal, fake comms if needed. If we do it quick enough, enemy base will be none the wiser.

[Local] Warhunter Ku'jho@Domarg: If that isss our courssse of action, then give usss all data on vessselsss involved, ssship type, crew complement, ssshield capacity, weaponry. That'll help usss arrange our attack.

[Local] Istar@anncarise: "We'll give ya everything we have on the Vicious. Escorts we'll have to figure out once we get close."

Egzo@HF_Mudd transfers over the more detailed data from the probe.

[Local] Warhunter Ku'jho@Domarg: Underssstood.

Istar@anncarise forwards over the Vicious' planned flight path and all information Orion Naval Intelligence has on the Chel Boalg class.

Warhunter Ku'jho@Domarg looks over the data.

[Local] Warhunter Ku'jho@Domarg: Chel will be a problem, depending on if we can take it out quick. Ssshe packsss ssseriousss tactical.

Egzo@HF_Mudd nods. "Figure it'll probably be on a skeleton crew, maybe even external power. Cold engines."

[Local] Egzo@HF_Mudd: "But yeah, first target, like ya said."

[Team] Warhunter Ku'jho@Domarg: gonna use my Combat skill to provide a tactical advantage to our attack.

[Team] N'Py See@gulremal: oh we will do the actual fight next time

[Team] Warhunter Ku'jho@Domarg: Ok cool.

[Local] N'Py See@gulremal: <Voice> I'll leave you to tactical planning. I need to rest and prepare myself for the signal jamming once the trap is sprung.

[Local] N'Py See@gulremal: -- SCENE END --

[Local] N'Py See@gulremal: ** for now
