What does the bolded part mean exactly - which station is that ??

I think he meant hail the fighters. If that's what you want to do.

I already did, standard ID and hail. May give us a clue a to their intentions.

Thought there might have been some station nearby as well.

The narrative mentions an estimated ETA of anywhere between 2 and 18 hrs, how much of that has been spent up until now ?

At any rate I want to track the fighters and give the men below early warning if they start to close in.

Kuroitori
Mugen draws a bead, lining up the barrel of the gun with the nearest technician in the same smooth motion with which he draws it. A deafening squeal of static blasts across the comm waves, and two of the Skandians slap their hands up to their heads as the augmented human takes his shot - and immediately flips backwards from the heavy pistol's recoil in the microgravity. The Skandian's head explodes, and by the time the two armed techs return fire Mugen has spun most of the way out of view. Shots spang around him as he scrabbles from view, and when he finally grabs a fighter wing to steady himself he sees both men propped against fixed struts to absorb the effects of their shots. That does leave them exposed, and his second shot fells another crewman. Pulling back on the fighter, he launches himself on a high evasive arc across the chamber, bounces off the roof and drops directly behind the third man before he is able to land a single successful shot.

Over the comm link from Kuroitori, Ren whispers into his ear, "Captain, we have strike-fighters in the area. I'm going silent, but will remain close by. Signal when you want me."

Starmaster One
The two fighters begin their scan of the area, but don't even have time to detect trespassers before they are politely greeted by Yil'chara. "What? Who goes- a Starmaster?" The pilot's confused response stumbles over itself, then is cut off by his co-pilot's coolly arrogant response. "Light Freighter Starmaster One, you are trespassing in a military no-fly zone. Power down your vessel immediately, state your business and stand by for boarding." The two fighters skew thrust through the debris field, parting around a shattered hull fragment as they close on the Starmaster's signal.

Gman continues cutting through the hull, judging his depth by Pruitt's report from the other side and uses the electromagnet on the grapple arm to haul the rectangular piece free of the main hulk. Through the glowing rectangle he can see Commander Pruitt with one suited palm resting on a stack of server modules and sensors.

Pruitt tosses the server modules gently in through the open ramp to land in the cargo netting within Starmaster One, then hoists the sensors and launches himself after them. He has just passed through the hatch (and back aboard his vessel) when Yil'chara speaks over the crew frequency. "Guys, those fighters are on their way over here - what should we do?"

[OOC: The "station" Pruitt was referring to was Ebon Processing Plant II, from Post #4]

Patna
In the tight confines of the cabin, Lawrence slips past behind Richaundra and down the corridor and into the JIM attached to the hatch. Richie brings Patna carefully around, opens the extended cargo bay doors and begins to steady the spinning fighter. It takes a few minutes as it keeps spinning out of the mechanical grip, but by the time Lawrence's suited figure disconnects from the sealed hatch the smallcraft is stabilized and gripped in the dorsal cargo arm. He strides over to Patna's lip and slowly slices off the other wing. Richie is able to begin a low-power burn toward the Believer, while Lawrence manipulates the cargo arm to bring the wingless fighter aboard ship. The pilot watches the armored suit with clear and growing apprehension during the entire procedure, hoping he's been rescued but clearly aware of the valuable salvage he's sitting in. Once the fighter is secured aboard ship and Lawrence makes no obvious effort to crack the cockpit the Skandian pilot tentatively knocks his fist on the cockpit window.

The fighters seem to be diverted towards away from Patna and she is able to close on the Believer unmolested. At closer range she can see that - aside from whatever heavy weaponry decapitated her - the ship mostly fell to wave after wave of light attacks. The superstructure is generally intact and there are still visible lights aboard ship, but it is leaking air from a dozen hull breaches and the engines are outgassing something blue and corrosive. There are probably a number of damaged points where Richie and Lawrence could board - or with some technical skill they could conceivably force a docking port.

"A rescue operation, what do *you* think.."

"We already located two of your officers at [gives the location of the Skandians previously encountered that refused to be taken in].."

"I suggest you make speed since they are not likely to be alive much longer and refused any help on our part."

"In addition some of your men are still holding out in the Assault Carrier, presumably fighting off Scavengers or Crusaders,


"...how long before your fleet train gets here ...there's no way we can handle this alone ?"

Yil'chara relays the communication to the Commander and Gman so they follow along.

Edit, also if we have any weapons on this ship *now* would be the time to tell me

Without even a thought Mugen finished the job he has started and propels his vibroblade with force into the back of the Skandian that he has gotten the drop on. But this was clearly only the third man of the original four he had seen, the other had to be around somehwere. Mugen activates his thermal vision to detect the last man and checks for electronic signals from of any of his comms or gadgets while sending out a short message to the man through his implants, surrender and live.

OOC: I'll be gone for 4 days after today, during that time Yil'chara will be "automated", carry out the orders of the commander and hopefully move to evade threatening events but not much else..

I'll be on until 1500 today though, so if there's anything that still needs be done, just let me know

You completed the cut in the last update, my friend

The cargo (and Pruitt) are aboard!

Ebon Processing Plant II - I see.

There were seven of these, EPP1 was destroyed by the Crusader attack and we're now operating around 2, the site of the battle more or less.

Understood.

The destroyed station would be very useful as a background story, since it's unlikely our identities could be confirmed anytime soon

Since I'm about to leave anyway I'll leave it to crewmates though, good luck.

A choked gasp comes over the local Skandian frequency as Mugen drives his quivering blade firmly into the back of the third man, clamping one hand on his shoulder and drawing it up in a long slash through the vac suit. Blood boils out into the hangar's vacuum while the Nihon'jan issues his warning offer - then carefully examines the room around him. Thermal vision doesn't reveal anything initially, but after a minute of slow movement and careful examination of cabinets and shadows alike he spies increasing levels of heat building towards the back of one strike fighter. On closer inspection, it appears to be engaging its startup cycle.

Starmaster One
The voice that comes back to Yil'chara over the comms seems less certain, but the assertiveness remains.

"We will verify your contact reports. If you are indeed operating as volunteer SAR for the Navy, then our commander will thank you. In the meantime, transmit the following id code when approaching Skandian vessels and you will not be fired upon."

It goes without saying that the light freighter will still be searched before the fighters permit them to leave with any military-grade technology - the Republic simply isn't that trusting, and Yil'chara passes that assessment back to his crew along with what has been said. Also the information that an additional id signature has been received. Should he replace their current id with the Skandian Navy id?

With the cut complete, Gman releases the segment of hull plating and retracts the cargo arm, while Commander Pruitt closes the ramp before the fighters get close enough to pick it up.

Where (or what) next?

Mugen realizes that the bastard is planning to start one of the fighters to either escape or finish him so he responds accordingly. In an instant his cybernetics contact the fighter's computers and order it to shut down totally even as he activated his targeting systems in his sensory enhancements to take aim at the assumed external ordinance under each wing. One way or another the fighter would be staying in this hangar until the pilot inside was taken care of. Mugen also sends orders over the cybernetics to start another of the fighters behind the one already being started....

Guys lets go see what else is in the debris field. GMan start using the Skandian Navy ID code. Let us see if there is any Believer salvage to be found. Keep an eye open for Life Signs.

Richie comes out in a vac-suit and hooks up a commo link ... or just puts her face-plate to the canopy if nothing else will work.

There are probably a number of damaged points where Richie and Lawrence could board - or with some technical skill they could conceivably force a docking port.
Maybe that hole where the bridge used to be will lead to something good, going inside for something big and valuable seems like it would be a double-pain in the rear.
We REALLY will be avoiding those outgassing vapors, I don't need that drap in my hold!

Blaming the Las Vegas massacre on gun owners is like blaming 9-11 on frequent fliers.
