"I'm thinkin... 'we'll rise again'."

Wash fires up the engines and lifts the wounded Firefly into the black, guiding the wounded ship away from potential danger.
As Tranquility clears the asteroid that was almost her graveyard, a glint of sunlight catches her logo as she peels away, into space.

He puts Tranquility on auto pilot, then walks to the galley where the rest of the crew are meeting.

Wash thinks:
= I wonder what the new guy is like.
I hope he's like Oreo - without the killing and the stealing. =

As Wisp moved the last load of his things into the cargo bay he watched as the man who had been unconscious then stolen a shuttle proceeded to open up a cryo pod. Not wanting to get involved Wisp quickly got out of his space suit, grabbed a few items and headed up to mess. He was so glad to be out of that Gorram suit. Military issue may have been functional but it sure as hell wasn’t comfortable. And was there no way to cover up that damn smell?

Before Wisp headed to the mess he knew there should be some sort of bathroom in the passenger quarters where he could freshen up. Upon finding an empty cabin he quickly shed his sweat soaked t-shirt and proceeded to try and bathe best he could in the small sink. Unfortunately his toiletries were buried somewhere in his boxes of items in the hold and he didn’t fancy digging through it all so water would have to suffice. He threw on a fresh shirt and a battered brown flying jacket. He wore a pair of dark combat fatigues on his lower half with all the pockets stuffed with random pieces of technology and wiring. The outfit was completed by a much worn brown leather utility belt. This was again full of various items including a hyper spanner, sonic screwdriver, and many other small devices some of which Wisp had invented himself. A conspicuous space on the right hand side revealed where a weapon holster should have lain but Wisp decided to leave that out for now.

Upon reaching the galley he found he was the first one there and proceeded to pick a squat in the middle of the table. He really a beer. He could raid the cupboards but thats a little forward for a new crewmember. He had some down with his stuff along with other rations and stuff but didn’t wanna go all the way down there. In fact after the day he’d had as soon as he sat down his energy sapped pretty quickly. He was pretty ready to just fall into some sort of coma. As soon as he had some kind of bed set aside for him he was gonna take full advantage of it, Unpacking be damned. First thing in the morning he’d set up his things. Job one was getting his bioreactor set up, then he could use that to power his other technological gizmos that he had brought with him. Then he could set himself to the task of overhauling the sensor package.

But he wished he had a beer...

Shiny walks away annoyed with Oreo. She senses Storm and summer following her as she walks to the Gally
she thinking.. He had to go and open the cryo pod, He just had to do it!
Then she thinks about the Capt telling her to watch them. Shiny says aloud to herself, "what is wrong with the man folk on this ship?!
She not happy that the responsibility always land on her to watch the twins. Shiny talks to her self. If I wanted kids, I would have them.well first i would get married. Married! she snickers to herself no thanks men are like big kids. And I don't want kids. Shiny didn't realize she said that aloud
She turns her head to see if the twins are still
behind her. She see's they are.
She walks into the Gally and see's wisp. the twins sit down at the table.
Shiny feeling guilty towards the twins, She starts making them each a sandwich.
She Turns around and looks at the twins,
"you guys must be hungry."
The twins nod.
As she turns to finish making their sandwiches she notices wisp looking at the food on the counter.
knowing he must be hungry makes him two.
Without saying a word she gives the twins their food, Thes grabs wisps off the counter and slides
it over to him. She cracks a small smile. then turns to the ice box grabs two beers opens them
and slides one to wisp.
Wisp thanks her between gulps.
Shiny, sits opposite to wisp.."you get to meet
the rest of the crew....lucky you. She say's jokingly but with a hint of sarcasm.

...Also, I can kill you with my brain.

Oreo and Wash get to the galley and sit down at the table.
Shadow walks in last and sits at the head of the table.

"Ok all, 1st, let me say thanks to Wisp for saving our bacon back on that rock and for all the help with patching us up."

He looks at Wisp.

"Don't have much to offer you in the way of reward, but we can take you any which way you want.
You're welcome to stay aboard 'long as you want.
We'll be needin' parts and repairs so we'll be lookin' for a place that can accommodate us."

"First we all got some story tellin' to do. I've already told Wisp about our 2 Twins that we saved from the black market dealers.
He knows that they are... were... part of the Alliance project called
The Gemini Project.
What I didn't tell him is that they can read minds as a by-product of the DNA hybridization to try to make a 'mental super-soldier'.

"I also told him about Oreo and how the Alliance experimented with his DNA in the Operation Reaver Echo One project.
But I think Oreo should be the one to tell his story."

Looks at Oreo

"The rest of us should tell our stories to each other here.
We have some time before we get to the next planet and we'll be spendin' some time together so let's air it out.

**In the shuttle**

(El does a head count and tells the cap that there are 12 people in the shuttle. It is so cramped in the shuttle that El feels his nerves on edge. He has to move.)

El: O2! Have you fixed the CO leak yet?

O2: Almost.....There! That should do it.

El: OK! I can't stand another second in here!

(El breaches the airlock and steps into Tranquility for the first time in what seems like a long time.)

El: Kat, Why don't you guys get everyone settled into the cargo bay. I'm heading to the galley.

(El heads to the galley to find the rest of the crew, not to mention a new face, sitting around the dining table.)

Captain: El, I quarantined your shuttle. What are you doing here.

El: It's good to see you to. We fixed the leak. YOU try being in a shuttle with eleven other people. Everyone else is getting settled in the cargo bay. I say we stop by and see Master Ojin. He can find these people new homes.

Cap: As long as you fixed the leak. Good to have you back El. Your unique talents are always needed on this ship.

El: It's good to be useful again. I have to talk to you about something later. Something from my past. I'm going to need your help.

(El sits down next to the twins and feels at home for the first time in a while)

When you can't run you crawl. When you can't do know the rest.


Thursday, March 4, 2010 6:14 PM


(El settles in and suddenly oreo speaks up)

Oreo- my sister?

(El turns in his chair to face oreo)

El- well, well, well, i see the family cat is still alive and kicking. how many lives do you have let anyways?

Oreo- gorramit! what did you say to me?!

(Before oreo could react, the captain steps between them.)

Captain- knock it off you two. not on my ship. you two got something to settle, then take it outside.

Oreo- outside, but we're in space.

(the captain flashes a look of astonishment)

Captain- I know that dumbass.

(Oreo suddenly feeling very stupid, withdraws. satified with oreo choice, he turns to El)

Captain- its hard enough to keep the big lug under control enough, don't need you stirring him up.

El- you got it cap.

Captain- So, what about kat?

El- she's here and in good health.

(Oreo cracks a small smile of relief.)

Captain- well, the gang is all here then.

"Zhu zui! Both of you!
Elbarto, you tellin' me you brought 11 others with you?
On my boat. You broke a locked seal, and disregarded a quarantine?
Not to mention we got 2 day's rations for the 5 of us plus 2 kids - that's 7.
Now we have to feed 19?! Plus the oxygen reserves just reached a breathable level for 7 people!"

"Wash, change course for Aquila.

Whilst Wisp is sat finally relaxing Shiny comes in accompanied by two young children. ‘I bet they're the two Shadow was on about.’ Project Gemini was it? The Alliance were always busy messing with the natural order of things. They wouldn’t be happy until they’d shifted the whole human race into a great super soldier species. As he’s pondering his thoughts Shiny slides over a sandwich and cold beer to him.

“You my Darling” He says diving into both of them with abandon “Are a Goddess”. He listens as she sarcastically references the rest of the crew. “How many people are aboard nowadays? They all a nice bunch?”

Before she has a chance to answer Shadow comes in with Oreo in tow. He stands up and gives Wisp and introduction but before Wisp can get up and introduce himself a man who was referred to as Elbarto enters and receives a thorough dressing down from the captain. When this is finished he sees his opportunity and takes to the floor.

"Im Wisp. Got a real name but it sort of has a warrant (or six) to go with it" Wisp took a hefty swig of his beer.

"Born on Ariel to a middle class family went to a good school had a great career as a technical whiz-kid to go into. But, My parents were terrified of the Alliance, during the war they attended every unification march, meeting, protest you name it. I got dragged into their little 'don’t arrest me I’m a zombie' plan.

From age ten onwards I was sent to the military Youth Academy. Rarely saw my parents. The military were training kids to be officers and soldiers at young ages so they’d be dangerous weapons by the time they reached adulthood. I wasn’t easily brainwashed"

Wisp looked into the bottle like a dying man looking at his wife. Then he shook his head and returned his gaze to the people before him.

"I stuck it out till i was 15. Then I ran away. Lived on the streets of Capital City. Learned a lot more things, Got in a lot more scrapes, met a LOT of women. I ended up providing technical expertise for a shady business venture run by a mob and earned myself a warrant or two so I left my name behind and started using my call sign from my youth"

Wisp looked around at the motley crew and smirked inwardly.

"I ended up on commerce after another unfortunate incident, and joined a ship named the Sereni-tree. Then it gets weird.” Wisp paused at this point to make sure everyone was keeping up with him. “There was some intergalactic hiccup, I call it an Unexplainable Quantum Interaction Event I’ve been studying them since, anyway me and a few others appeared in orbit around Boros with no idea how we got there. This got us the unwanted attentions of a group known as Crimson Squad who I’ve since found out are the Alliance Military wet work team. And this in turn got us the attention of the resistance.”

“We ended up helping a resistance movement survive assassination as they were exposing the President for some very illegal dealings. This lead us to Santos” This was where everything fell apart. Keep it together Wisp “Whilst we were regrouping we were attacked. Don’t know by who but I've got some ideas. We got hit hard and we started a very rapid evacuation and got separated. That was two years ago and I've been trying to find them ever since”

“I was on my way to follow a lead on Silverhold when I saw your ship and repaired your hull whilst you were all unconscious. Unfortunately I've had to cannibalise my ship to save yours and that leads me here. If any of you have questions feel free to ask away.”


Friday, March 5, 2010 3:29 PM


"Ok, looks like we can get you to Silverhold to search for your old mates, just as soon as we unload our 'new cargo' on Aquila."

"Floors open for you to tell Wisp a little about yourself. He did save our lives, so lets play nice, shall we?"

As Shadow leaves for the bridge,
he takes out a knife, walk over to the message board,
holds a message up on it with his left hand and
stabs it with the knife. - TRANQUILITYS LEVEL 5 [SECURE CHANNEL]

Oreo- only because the captain asked. dont think for a minute that you know me. them bastards killed my folks and turned my into there damned experimental hampster. after kidnappin me when i was just a boy.

HI, I'm David Grotivo for Planet News. This late breaking story has just come in. Reports of a verse wide man hunt is underway for the capture of an alleged fugitive known as Skye L Jordsons ,alias Oreo.Skye was a willing volunteer of an Alliance Military Weapons Program call "Operation reaver Echo One". A Proto-type one failure of a series of three.The fugitive escaped from the facility that was based on Silas 5. Details of his escape are still unclear at this time.

The fugitives whereabouts are unknown at this time as well, but Witnesses of the Silas 5 explosion, that happened a few months back have described a man matching the fugitives description, placing him at the scene during what the Alliance is calling, A "tragedy". Witnesses also say, that working in conjunction with the Fugitive, was a small group of individuals that sources say are responsible for placing more then sixty-two deadly explosive devices throughout the Alliance complex.They too, are also wanted by Alliance Authorities.

Alliance officials had this to say on Tuesday;
"After a month of excavation and recovery, we have yet to find any remains or a body of the Fugitive Skye L Jordsons a.k.a Oreo. This leave us to believe that he is still very much at large. Please use extreme caution. He should be considered unstable and extremely armed and dangerous.

****Closing Video File****

****Opening Primary Evaluation File****

Voice Log Number 12: Skye displays rage and anger when shown pictures of families and other things that would normally bring out happiness and joy or anger and pain in a normal human mind. The process of altering a human mind into pure aggression and hate is now at fifteen percent. the reaver blood and begun fusing perfectly, with very little complication. He will be the first of a new race. a better race.

Voice Log Number 22: Echo One, as he is now dubbed, is now at forty-three percent. He has begun showing remarkable signs of strength and abilities as his body begins to transform. Its fascinating. his level of aggression is off the charts. Once enraged, markings appear on the torso, chest, arms, hands and neck. Symbols maybe, i have tried to compare them to some ancient marking from back on earth that was, I was able to only come up with one possibility. Ancient Rune, probably Scottish or Irish. Also, the eyes react to the change as well. turning from there natural hazel color to pure white. the pupils basically turn invisible, but the eyes are still able to react to natural light, wind, cold, heat, just like a normal set of eyes. his canine incisors extended nearly a full inch. like that of a wild dog or cat. such as a tiger. no, something more mythical...a vampire or werewolf. Echo one has become a advanced form of reaver. he doesn't share the same characteristics of the lesser, more commom reaver before him. Echo, is pure hate. a weapon. we know he dreams. recalling childhood memories and family. but, his memory will be erased soon. he mutters a song or a poem over and over.
goes as followed:

Do not stand at my grave and weep,
I am not there... I do not sleep.
I am the thousand winds that blow...
I am the diamond glints on snow...
I am the sunlight on ripened grain...
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you waken in the morning's hush,
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of gentle birds in circling flight...
I am the soft star that shines at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry—
I am not there... i did not die

Once Oreo finishes the room is silent.
Shiny waits a few moments then speaks.
"well as you know I'm shinyfrye. (shiny looks at wisp) My friends call me Shiny".
Shiny pauses, " my family is very wealthy and has strong ties with the alliance." (shiny glances at Oreo).
She continues....My family believes in a better society, Heck even I do. BUT how to go about....well that's were we differ. I believe education and music....(Shiny pictures in her minds eye her sitting at the piano with her furry dog on her lap getting lost in her music).
But that's where me and my family part ways. They have crossed the line of ethics. I really don't think they even realize it. the deeper they, I really should say my Father, My mother lives in her own happy world oblivious to anything. (Shiny getting off subject quickly realizes it and refocuses).
Anyways, I'm not making excuses for them, I'm just saying. When one gets so focused on a solution its easy to cross the line of ethics.
Especially when power is involved. ( shiny pictures Jaykin in her minds eye, and seeing how close she came....)
Shiny looks around at everyone. She's debating
if she should go on. Deciding she had already
said more than she would of liked.
Shrugged her shoulders and said that's it.
and sat down.
She hates feeling so vulnerable Letting someone in who she doesn't know and not sure she can fully trust.
She gets quiet wondering if he has his own agenda. (she snickers to herself, i guess we all do).

Jennifer Brary had been on Miranda since just before the release of The Pax. She had been a climatologist sent there to study the effects on the atmosphere. When everything started going downhill she managed to get herself into the bunker with a few others. They’d been cooped up there until Elbarto and the others had freed them and helped them escape. On one hand She was incredibly grateful but on the other... Her whole life before Miranda was gone. Her parents had been dead many years before, she didn’t have a husband, all her friends had been in the industry. Could she go back to her old job? With all she’d seen she was sure to be disappeared as soon as she walked in the door. She had to start again, live the simple life under the radar wherever this crew dropped them off. Aquila was it? Didn’t sound particularly advanced, not a lot of career opportunities for an out of date climatologist.

She sat in the cargo bay of the firefly ship after they had vacated from the cramped shuttle. Elbarto had gone off somewhere, she didn’t know where. She was thirsty. She looked around and estimated roughly where the galley should have been and set off. She’d been told to stay put but they hadn’t been given any sort of supplies so she took matters into her own hands. Upon reaching the galley door she heard voices inside and thought about turning back until whatever meeting it was had broken up. Something inside her compelled her to listen though. Probably because these were the only new people she’d met in years.

It was then when she overheard one of them mention that they were on the run from Crimson Squad. There was a name she recognised; every scientist in the verse feared a visit from the CS. An idea formulated in her head. It was cruel and wicked. She managed to overhear the captain saying they’d go to Silverhold when they dropped off her and the other refuges. She began to head back to the hold forcing the idea into the back of her head. She hadn’t been a bad person before all this, she shouldn’t start now. But she’d seen so much wickedness the Idea just seemed to get more appealing. If she could find some cortex station when they landed, she could sell them out and earn enough money to retire. No more starting again. No more hardship. No more fear.

But these People had SAVED her! Her conscience screamed back at her. She couldn’t betray them after all they’d done. She couldn’t just think of herself! The battle raged between her inner demons as she felt the ship hit atmosphere. Who was she going to put first? Herself or strangers.....

(Oreo sits at a table with kat. they drink and catch up on past events)

Kat- alots happened with you over these past few months.

Oreo- yeah, none for the better though. things just keep gettin worse. the alliance trailin us. jaykins still out there. nothing but'a boat load of trouble every where we go.

Kat- well, it is the life we chose. theives. scrappers. lookin to stay out of reach of the alliance.

(kat finishes her drink and slides the cup away from her)

Kat- how are you?

Oreo- how am I? i'm fine, i guess? why?

Kat- i mean, how are you still coupling with the...the reaver side of you.

Oreo- oh, that. i ain't gone reaver in some months now. been havin headache spells, nose bleeds. Why you askin?

Kat- i had did some diggin and ran across something.

(kat reach down into her bag she'd been carrying around with her and pulls out a file folder. she hands to oreo)

Oreo- whats this?

Kat- Read it.

(Oreo opens the folder and begins to read page after page)

Oreo- this is a gorram medical history of the Echo One Project!

(kat lowers her head. despaeratly trying to fight back tears)

kat- is, but...

Oreo- hey, whats wrong with you?

Kat- Skye, you're dying. thats why you've been having headaches and the nose bleeds. and it's going to get worse.

Oreo- what?! (chuckles) how do you know im dying?

Kat- the last page.

(oreo thumbs through to the last page)

Kat- you were made with a fail safe.

(oreo's eyes widen as he reads)

Kat- they were ejecting you with some kinda serum the helped maintain the proper balance of white and red blood cells to prevent the reavers blood cells during tranfusions from completely taking over. you havent had the serum since you escaped all those months ago and the reaver blood cells are begin to tear you apart from the inside.

(for once oreo was speakless)

Kat- if you can't get that serum...then you will


(oreo throws the folder, sending the pages inside flying throughout the air. he let out a fearsome growl. the pupils in his eyes rapidly fade out.)


(Oreo, to far gone into his transformation, doesnt hear kats plea's. kat stands to her feet, quickly noticing mother and her two kids. kat sprints over to them and forces them up, pushing them towards the exit, along with others who happen to be in the same direct path. within a few feet of the exit door, a table flys over head of kat and crashes against a wall. panic and screaming burst out right on cue. before exiting kat looks back as oreo rages through the small little bar. breaking, hurling and even killing everything in his way.)

Kat- its my fault. i shouldnt have told him. i shouldnt have...i need to find the captain.

Jennifer stood looking out over the forested landscape of the planet Aquila. Terraformed into a thick jungle to provide wood for industrial projects it had a dense humid atmosphere. The town they had landed in was fairly large and advanced despite the fact most buildings were constructed from logs rather than brick or metal. She and the other refugees had been taken to a man referred to as Master Ojin who was in the process of sorting out housing and work permits for them. He urged them to have a wander round the village and get used to the surroundings. It wasn’t the worst place in the verse to get stuck she told herself. It was warm if humid, there was definitely work, She could see logging vehicles parked up on the edge of town with a great lumber mill behind them.

But there was still that nagging thought at the back of her mind. She was a trained scientist, she’d spent 5 years getting a specialised degree in atmospheric toxins and now here she was contemplating her nice life working in a lumber mill? She was better than this. What had happened to her life to make it all fall apart? She had to find a way out of this. It was at that moment when she was about breakdown and cry in the middle of the arcade when the cortex console caught her eye and the ugly idea raised its head. Her id took control of her body without thought as she dialled up the index and called the Crimson Squad information line. After a brief pause she was connected with a very smart young man whose uniform bore the instinctive red trim of the Crimson Squad sat behind a desk.

“Crimson Squad Information. State your business” Nobody called this line to get information only to give it. His voice was cold with a hint of boredom; he got hundreds of these calls everyday most of which were a worthless waste of his time.

“I-I-Ive got some information on a man who you ran into on B-Boros a few years ago. He’s a member of a ship called the Tranquillity” She stammered out looking from side to side to make sure none of the crew saw her. The man on the other end of the line silently rolled his eyes.

“Miss the Crimson squad have many individuals of interest. Your description holds no value. Now unless you have any more information I’ll…”

“Wait! I know his name it was…erm” It was a W she was sure. Something weird Wall? Wind? Whisper?

“Miss this is a waste of both our times good day” Just as he was about to end the link it jumped into her head.

“WISP!” She shouted before checking her volume “His name was Wisp”

The young man now sat up a little straighter and paid her more heed. He had daily memo’s stating all the people on red and yellow information priority. The name Wisp had been high up on the red list for as long as he’d worked in this department. Bringing him in would result in a definite promotion and a hefty bonus.

“Let me check my database” He lied looking up the file with inner glee “It seems this man is wanted on minor charges. Where could we find him?”

“I want a reward. Whats he worth?”

Damn Civilians cutting into his bonus. “It says here I’m allowed to grant up to 1000 credits for information” Actually on his screen there were several more zeroes after that which he didn’t tell her about.

“No I want 20,000 or no deal” She was gambling. She had no idea who this man was or why they wanted him. She was selling out a stranger. She felt ill inside.

The young man felt his heartbeat rise, He had to weigh up between giving away too much and losing this valuable knowledge. “10,000”


“Where is he?”

“Hes on a ship on Aquila, Hes headed to Silverhold in about a days time”

“Thankyou for your information” He smiled broadly “if you look below this cortex station you will find a slip for 10,000 credits. Good day” With that the link closed.

Jennifer took the slip with trembling fingers. “So this is what you get when you sell your soul to the devil?”

Across the galaxy The young man called his superior with the information and entered the details of the credit slip into the computer with details to arrest her as soon as she cashed it. He made sure to tick the box marked for Lethal Force and laughed to himself at his up coming promotion.

Wisp left the bridge and climbed down the ladder into the first cabin. The interior was a healthy size, about 8 metres square, and included a foldout bath unit, a desk and a queen bed.

“Now then” Wisp said to himself surveying the room “ The sensible thing for you to do is to go the cargo bay and get all your things in here. Yes Wisp that’s the sensible thing” With that he fell face first onto the bed and began to snore.

Wisp awoke nearly twelve hours later with his face still pointing into the bed and his feet over the side. After a brief moment of disorientation he managed to pull himself into a sitting position. He began to survey the blank walls and mentally began placing his belongings. The shelving at the bottom of his bunk would make an excellent gun cabinet with a few minor alterations. He already had the portable welding gear and he had parts of his old gun cabinet to convert. The desk would make a good workstation for his inventions. He had to get his computer set up and then arrange his micro fine gear into one of the desks. There was space in the corner for his bioreactor, there was no way he was gonna risk his sensitive equipment on a firefly’s internal power server. The Energy spikes literally made him shudder in a wave of geekdom. He’d have to route down a cortex feed from the bridge but that was second nature to him. He’d practically rewired the whole of the Epsilon twice a year to adapt in new pieces of equipment he incorporated and invented.

After his room was done he could start working on the ships sensors and counter-surveillance package. By the time he’d finished with this bird Alliance cruisers would have to be within spitting distance to see it on scans.

“Right then, Time to unpack”

Shadow heads to the new guys room to see what he's up to.
"Hey wisp, we should be taking off soon. Ojin has replaced the Alliance shuttle that Elbarto came in on
with another shuttle from a firefly in his collection so we'll have the full compliment.
His workers have just finished the repairs and are about to refuel us.

As Wisp surveyed his new room he felt much more at home than he had done for a while. The Epsilon hadn’t really been built for the applying of home comforts and such. It was strange how this room on a ship of other people seemed to be more private that living half heartedly through your own ship. Although the downside is he couldn’t pilot in his underwear anymore, unless...

It was at this junction that the Captain called Wisp and asked him to track down the crew on the planet. Wisp grabbed a 12mm and holster from his newly constructed weapons cabinet and fitted them to his belt as he made his way out of the ship. As soon as he got outside a wave of humidity hit him causing him to rethink his jacket option and head round town in just his t-shirt. Aquila (from the Latin Eagle) had been terra-formed much more than most moons its size due to the soil quality it already possessed. A lot of core moons had been turned into huge farmlands but this far out it wouldn’t have paid off to have a food planet. So it was decided it would become a great forest world, providing high quality lumber for the core and also serving as an oxygen refinery. The planet was divided into the poor who worked on the wood and the rich towns that sold fresh oxygen. The town they had landed in was on the poor side of the world.

“Now where will everybody be?” As Wisp spoke to himself he saw Kat running out of a bar as the sounds of crashing tables and broken glass erupted from behind her. Wisp drew his weapon and headed towards the ruckus. “That’s here they’ll be”


Tuesday, March 16, 2010 10:17 AM


(Kat passes Wisp, not realizing he was part of the crew.)

Kat- I gotta find the captain. Oreo is going to tear the whole place down. and the people...

(inside the bar, oreo rages on. people scatter and cower beneath tables and in corners. Oreo, jumps up onto the bar beathing heavily, when he notices a local standing in the middle of the room starring at him)


(the local pulls a pistol from his waist holster and before he can aim it, oreo, is nose to nose with him)

Local- what the hell...

(Oreo grabs him by the throat and lifts him off his feet. Slowly he begins to tight his grip around the locals throat. the local instantly drops his gun and begins trying to pry himself from Oreo grip.)


(Oreo tights his grip again and the locals words turn to desperate gasps for air.)

Oreo- diiiiiiiie...

(Suddenly a gunshots wrings out. Oreo slightly tilts his head in the direction of the shoot and locks eyes with wisp)

Wisp- Put...Him...Down!

Oreo complies with Wisp request that he put the man down by throwing him lengthways at him and the Captain causing them both to dive in opposite directions as the mans body careers into the air where they once stood.

“That whatever the maker you turned up Captain I was just about to comm for you” Wisp had taken cover behind an over turned table whilst the captain was crouched behind a group of chairs.

“Does he do this often? What are we supposed to do? Theres no way we can take him on in melee and I don’t really wanna kill the psychotic bastard” Wisp shouted across the defenceless void to the Captain.

Wisp peaked over his defence just as a chair soared above his head. If he could get someone on the ship to grab his stun rifle this could be over quickly but there was no way he and the Captain could get out without being crushed by flying furniture/ patrons. They had to do something quick as Wisp was sure as soon as Oreo ran out of makeshift missile’s he was gonna get much more up close and personal than he cared for.

“Whats the plan?


Monday, March 22, 2010 11:20 AM


Just then Kat, Oreo's sister, and one time 1st Mate of Tranquility, steps into the room and speaks a trigger phrase that only she and Oreo know:

"Go n-eírí an bóthar leat."

At once Oreo stops and looks around.
His eyes still seemingly glowing, stands down.

Kat speaks again.

"We need to get back to Tranquility."

Wisp and Shadow speak in unison:

“We better get out of here sharpish” Said Wisp taking one arm of the unconscious Oreo as the Captain took the other side. With Kat in front trying to shield the slumped body from view the group took a casual but swift trot through town to the cargo doors. As soon as they were in the captain began closing the doors and called PilotWash on the bridge.

“Wash I want this bird in the air before I get up there” He didn’t pause for a reply instead finished carrying the lifeless man into the medical bay.

“What the hell happened back there?” asked Wisp as he began to attach a monitor to Oreo “Does this happen often? Should I sedate him or something?”

Before the Captain could answer a rumble from outside the hull indicated the ship was beginning to leave orbit. “Ill Answer your questions in a bit first I gotta make sure the feds aren’t following us.” He shot a glare to Kat who stood quietly in the corner as he left.

“Im gonna get to the engine room and see if Shiny needs help. If you need a hand with him gimme a shout. Oh Im Wisp by the way”


Thursday, March 25, 2010 3:16 AM


"Kat knows how to sedate him and how to handle him when he wakes up. Kat, stay here. I'll be on the bridge."

(in the infirmary. Kat stands in a corner. arms folded, with a sad look on her face)

Kat- it seems this always happens to you. restrained. treated like an animal. but, why does the truth do this to you? why do you refuse to handle these situations like a normal human person?

(Kat's arms drop to her side as she notices Oreo beginning to stir. she walks over to him. and gently places a hand on his forehead and the other on his forearm)

Kat- Skye? Skye?

(Oreo, begins to moan slightly)

Oreo- gorram, turn the light off.

(Kat flips around and hits the switch, dimming the light. she turns back to Oreo)

Kat- how you feeling?

Oreo- don't remember much. got a splittin headache.

(Oreo tries to lift his arms only to find out they've been locked in restraints, along with his ankle's.)

Oreo- what did i do this time?

Kat- you...because of me, you hurt a lot of people, maybe even killed them. you changed and you...

Oreo- wait, wait a minute. what did you do?

(Kat reaches for a stool and sits down. she lets out a deep sigh and begins to tell Oreo everything. after a long one-sided conversation, Kat finishes. Oreo, lays still. starring at the ceiling.)

Kat- say something. anything?

Oreo- what do you want me to say Kat? i haven't seen you in months. and all of a sudden you're back. with all...this. you risked your life. just to find out I'm going to die anyways. (slight chuckle) probably be for the best anyways.

Kat- don't say that. we are all we have Skye. Mom and dad are gone. it just you and me. and I'm not going to let you die too. (Kat lowers her head and balls her fists on top her her knees) I'm not going to let the alliance take you from me.

Oreo- remember when we were kids? dad would take us to the river ever summer.and we used to pretend to be pirates from back on earth that was?

Kat- yeah, i remember. but, what does that have to...

Oreo- who knew we'd actually become pirates.

Kat- yeah.

(Oreo tries to adjust his wrist in the uncomfortable restraints. Kat notices and begins to undo them)

Oreo- what are you doing? Captain will send you out the air lock.

(Kat moves over to the other side of Oreo and begins to undo the restraints)

Kat- i doubt it, if he hasn't spaced you yet, I'm pretty sure I'm not going to find out how fast my blood can boil out my ears just yet.

(Kat unlatches the last restraint and steps back as Oreo sits up)

Kat- Besides, if you get outta line, I'll just tranq you again. and i know how much you love that.

(Oreo turns his head towards Kat and rolls his eyes. Kat's steps towards Oreo and throws her arms around him.)

Kat- i love you little brother.

(Oreo, kinda taken back by the the emotional moment, eventually returns the tender moment.)

Oreo- I love you too, brat.

Kat- hey!

(Kat punches Oreo in the arm and lets out a quiet laugh. but, quickly it fades.)

Kat- but, Skye you're still going to...

Oreo- There's only two options Kat.

(Kat winces cause she knows one of them already)

Kat- I'm not just going to just sit back and watch you die. So,whats the other option.

Oreo- I know a couple of guys. They're on the Browncoat.

Kat- Who are they?

(Oreo lays back down)

Oreo- Frost and Drake Darker.

Kat- Drake Darker. Little Drakie. the same little Drakie that lived two fields over from us.

Oreo- that'd be him.He's on the browncoat, last i remember, its been awhile.

Kat- why do you need them?

Oreo- oh, they have a few talents that might come in handy.

(Kat stares at Oreo confused as he falls back asleep. she stands up, leans over and kisses Oreo on the forehead)

Kat- we are going to do something very stupid and extremely dangerous aren't we?

(Kat lies down on a cot adjacent to Oreo med-bed and falls asleep)

it's early in the a.m. Irish is sitting with his feet proped up atop a desk as he leans back in his chair. A cup of bamboo tea slowly cools. "This project is beging to bore me", sighs Irish as Chance, his female work assistant enters the room. "Irish, maybe you should get outta here for awhile. you've been locked up in here for days. hell maybe even weeks." Irish closes his eyes and sighs again. "The alliance isn't making it easy to find him you know".
Chance place her hands on his shoulders. "yeah, i know, but that doesn't mean you should work yourself to the bone like this. You found him once and im sure he'll surface again." Irish removes his feet from his desk and places them onto the floor. "Thats just the problem. The crew. Him. they've all just fell from the grid. I mean, even the alliance is having touble tracking them. If only i just knew where to look..."
Suddenly, Irish is hailed over the cortex. A haunting, yet familiar voice chimes in. "Irish. I see you're still as lazy as ever." Irish's eye widen with surprise. "Son of a bitch. How dare you..." The msytery figure cuts Irish off before he could finish. "Hey! slow down, before you have a heart attack.I come barring a gift." Irish, rolls his eyes. "And why would i want anything from you? I remember the last time i recieved...a gift, from you i spent almost a month in an alliance cell only to wind up being forced to work with them. Thanks, but no thanks."
The msytery figure laughs. "Still the same self conscience basterd. Well, you have my number, as it were. com me when you change your mind." Irish extends a looks of disbelief. "ANd what makes you think i will?" "Call it a hunch. the figure exclaims half laughing." The cortex screen goes blank, leaving irish to his thoughts. Irish thinks to himself. "What the hell was that about? He turns to Chance is still standing behind irish, confused. "Chance,and you please get me the file on the these two indivduals and everything we have...On Operation Echo Reaver One.?"

drake finally responds

Drake- it's proably good that you haven't drank. you get real stupid when you drink.

Frost- I get stupid?! I GET STUPID?!

Drake- see, exactly what i'm saying. couldn't have said it better myself.

Frost- come on mate! we have to get outta here. We'll be docking in persephone in three days time. i say we leave the ship. find somewhere new to go eh?

“Ok guys huddle up and I’ll fill you in.” The motley crew who were on the ramp of the Tranquillity gathered round Wisp as he produced a file containing several large glossy mug shots.

“So my lead was that there was a brawl a few weeks ago in a bar. During this someone’s firearm went off and caught a bystander square in the chest. I know this may not sound like much at present but it gets good. So this guy doesn’t even budge when the bullet hits him, Witnesses say he just brushed off his chest like it was a raindrop. This sounds like one of my guys by the name Bernard "Needy" Needham.” Wisp produced the first glossy showing a young man white male. Pretty boy who’d let himself go a little. “Don’t know what happened to him but he basically sold his soul or something a few years back and he’s immortal. Problem is he’s also bat-gosa crazy, Has a habit of getting angsty murder. He should be considered unarmed but VERY dangerous. If you spot him give me a call and I’ll come and talk to him.”
Wisp pulled the next photo showing an older man, tough and angry looking “This guys ‘Safe’ hes an old soldier If you spot him approach him casually and say ‘you know a friend he met on Boros’ He’s also pretty dangerous. Come to think of it most of the people I know are pretty dangerous, what can I say? I follow a rough crowd?” Wisp let out a laugh as he took the next photo. “Seryn probably with a child around 3 in tow” Next photo “Vixen Goddard. You probably won’t see her as she’s on a few wanted lists but if you do get the hell away from her and get me. This is Soul. He's ex special forces, and as scarce as rocking horse shit. If anything he'll approach you and you should be very polite to him. Likes to wear black” Wisp started passing round some more photos of various soldier looking types each with a name and bio in the corner “These others are people who rolled with us and may be able to help. Remember they’re all with the resistance so they probably don’t wanna be found and they're pretty trigger happy. Say my name and my Ship the Epsilon. One last thing. I just wanna say that I appreciate your help in all this”

“Captain I’d appreciate If you covered my back as we do most of the investigating. First port of call is the bar where all this went down. Its in an underground centre containing lots of bars, shops, amusements and such. Its called the Phoenix Complex.”

Professor Trepsil stood in the elevator yet again in his smart suit on the way to his meeting with Crimson Squad. It was early this month but that wasn’t all that unusual, the CS liked to keep everybody scared and on their toes. Impromptu high security meetings were their way of having fun almost. As the lift opened up the ditzy blonde secretary sat in the soothing beige room with that inhuman smirk on her face. Trepsil started to wonder if she wasn’t actually human? There was always the joke running round in the scientific circles (It’s worth noting that any jokes in scientific circles are a distant cousin to jokes of normal peoples) that the secretaries were all androids programmed to answer phones and look cheerful. Anyway whether she was robotic or otherwise she was still the woman at the desk.

“Professor Trepsil here for a Holo-Conference with Crimson Squad”
“Oh its not a holo-conference today its just a conference. Down the hall room 8. Have a nice day” She tilted her head to the side at the end of her sentence and smiled so wide Trepsil was sure he could spot the motors pulling her lips apart.

As Trepsil started down the hall her words had actually reached his brain and he paused mid step. A real conference? Must have been a mistake. CS hadn’t held a real conference here since back when this fiasco started off. Must be a mistake. He finished off down the hall and stepped into room 8 and was greeted by twelve real life men all looking very angry. He gulped.

“Morning Professor Please have a seat.” Said one of the generic generals round the desk. Trepsil was too shocked to actually notice who had spoken.

“Morning Generals” He managed “Why have you all come here?” Trepsil was nervous as hell and he showed it. These men were bad news and they scared the living daylights out of him showing up unannounced at his doorstep.

“There's been a development in the caged sparrow case. We received some intelligence that the subject was headed to Silverhold. Our surveillance on the ground has made a positive ID of the subject and there’s a strike team assembling now to bring him in.” This was a different general, he still couldn’t tell who it was. The room was dimmed everywhere but where he stood casting the men in dark shadows.

“We’re going to be on site here monitoring the operation. You’re here to provide expert information on any tactical scenarios. Please have a seat. You’ll be here a while”

Trepsil obliged in sort of a trance. Wisp was in process of being caught? He felt sorry for him. Trepsil had always secretly admired him for standing up for what was right and sticking it to the man, something which he always failed to do. And now He was sat on the team bringing him in. Trepsil hated himself.

The Tavern ressembled a cave of wood and mist. Low ceilings were shrouded by plumes of cigarette and pipe smoked. The full depth of the place was also invisible in the gloom. The tables were lit by bowls of wax that had once been classified as candles but had been mutated through years of placing new candles into the remains of the last. The bar filled one wall about 10 feet into the mist and faired no better with illumination, A single bedraggled man tended the bar with very little visible enthusiasm. His hair was balding without restraint and what hair he had hadnt been washed in some time and mingled freely with his beard. Most of the patrons could be described by very similar means and none of them could be described as looking friendly. Some sat around small tables playing cards, other hung to the shadows talking in hushed tones.

The group entered and were un-noticed by most as they made their way to the bar.

"Morning" Wisp Called to the bartender "I was wondering if you remembered a gunfight in here about a month back"

The bartender looked distantly through Wisp. "lotta gunfights in here"

"Bystander got shot in this one. Walked away from a kill shot"

"hmm yea. I remember. Awful Queer"

"I was wondering If it was this guy?" Wisp slid across the glossy photo of Needy

The bartender didnt even look down at the picture but pushed it back towards Wisp "my memorys not that great im 'fraid"

"are ya sure?" Wisp slipped it back with a pile of notes underneath.

"oh well maybe I could remember" It was at that moment that the man who had been who had been follwing them walked into the bar.

(Oreo looks around. wondering. trying to figure out what was making the noise.)

Oreo- what is that? Lights? no. montiors? no.

(Oreo closes his eyes. and tries to concentrate)

Oreo- sounds like...snoring?

(Oreo opens his eyes and looks over at his sister kat, who is fast asleep still)

Oreo- ain't you. Probably storm and summer, but it can't be. those two hardly ever sleep and when they do, i know they don't snore. they sure as hell talk in their sleep though. then who the hell is that and where is it coming from?

(Oreo sits himself up, kicks his feet over the sides and lowers himself down to the ground. he begins to walk out of the infirmary. he makes his way towards the bunks, while checking rooms, the brigde and the galley along the way. he reaches the captain's bunk. he hollers down.)

Oreo- hey cap, you down there?

(Oreo pauses for a minute to wait for an answer, but none is given. he continue to the other bunks only to wind up with the same conclusion.)

Oreo- this don't make no sense. ain't nobody even on board, even the twins are gone.

(suddenly, oreo realizes that the only place left to check, was the cargo quick as he can, he makes his way down to the belly of tranquility. after about an hour of searching, oreo, plops down onto an old crate.)

Oreo- i've searched everywhere. i know i ain't hearin things. there's someone on this gorram ship.

(Out of breathe, oreo lays back and stares into the distance.)

Oreo- gonna need to get in contact with drake here soon. worn out from walkin around, guess that means the o'body is startin to give. i gotta find a way to stop this or cure it.

“Needy’s an ex-Companion, used to service some pretty high up ladies. Then he got caught up in the resistance passing across pillow talk and the like. Anyway a reporter got wind of what he was up to and exposed him so he went to ground as a more tooth and nail resistance fighter. In a fire fight he took a direct hit and from what I've been told...died. Here’s where the weird starts. Don't ask me how but he got revived. He tried to explain it once about some ethereal being who looked like an old friend of his but I never really understood. Anyway so after he came back he’s literally bullet proof. I've seen him get smacked around by 4 guys with crowbars and not get scratched. This is when I met him, first he was a little wacky but he soon turned into full blown mayor of crazy town, ranging from violent psychopath to catatonic coma patient. My theory is its some kind of parasite that’s doing this to him but I really can’t say. Anyway from what I heard about the bystander it sounds like him and if he’s here i might be able to help him and get in contact with the rest of my team. I'm pretty sure they're underground with the resistance but they won’t tell me jack.” It was at this point the bartender returned holding a printed glossy from a security camera. The image was grainy but It did resemble Needy.

“This is the guy. Was here about a week before he got shot then disappeared. I hear that he’s wanted for strangling some girl as well. Is that why you guys are here?”

“Something like that. Thanks for the help” Wisp turned away from the bar as the bartender wandered away to serve someone. “Well it’s not a lot to go on but at least he was here. I’ll try and contact the local resistance see if they know something. I wonder who the tail is working for? He’s a little obvious, makes me smell trouble”

Kat- you're crazy. ain't nobody aboard, cept you me and the twins.

(Oreo stops to think for a seconds.)

Oreo- come to think of it, i ain't seen those brats around at all.

(kat yawns)

Kat- maybe they're outside the ship playing.

Oreo- ain't no way. ships closed tighter then a crabs buttocks.

(Kat sits up, wide awake now)

Kat- im pretty sure there fine. just hidin. they are children you know. you remember being a kid dont you?

(Oreo flashes an "annoyed" looked towards kat)

Kat- alright. alright. lets go find them. i didn't know you cared about them so much.

(an embarresed look sweeps over oreos face)

Oreo-...i don't. but, they are kids you know. they might need protectin or somethin'.

Kat- the only thing that needs protectin around here is me from your wild ass imagination. not, everyone is out to kill us or abduct us.

(Kat stops, realizing what she just said)

Kat- I'm sorry...i didn't mean...

Oreo- it's fine. lets just go find them kids.

Shadow looks at the photo and turns to Wisp:
"If that's all we have to go on, then that's all we have to go on."

The two get up from the bar.
The dark figure following them also rises from his seat - unnoticed by the 2.
Shiny and Wash do the same, quietly.
Shiny keeps one hand on her weapon.
Wash keeps praying quietly.
