[9:34] Lazu@Basilisk9466: This is the Angelfire. Check in, fleet. Ready to kick some Tal Shiar butt?

[9:35] Rori@zanethesage: Himiko here. All packed up and ready to go!

[9:35] Dekan@kanekasier: [Coms] This is the RRW Daehlen, we're always ready to kick some Tal Shiar butt.

[9:35] Matthew Erik Sharp@Erik-99: [Captain Geiger] Didn't think I'd hear that outside a Starfleet ship. Spirit of Fire, ready. Other freelancers will join upon our signal.

[9:35] Ten@Farmer42: This is the Irrah Ekhesai. We're ready to go. Long range sensors show a clear approach vector.

[9:36] Lazu@Basilisk9466: Little birds have a line on a Borg incusion that went wrong in the Agrama system. Sounds like a perfect hunting ground. Set course and watch for any Tallies we might be able to disable or tail.

[9:37] Ten@Farmer42: I've made arrangements with a few Romulan captains who owed me some favors. I can call them in, should they be needed.

[9:37] Rori@zanethesage: Bi'iara, lay it in and engage the TCS on arrival.

[9:38] Matthew Erik Sharp@Erik-99: Last time I was at Agrama was to help surpervise security during Sela's farse peace conference.

[9:38] Lazu@Basilisk9466: Small world.

[9:38] Matthew Erik Sharp@Erik-99: Small galaxy.

[9:41] Lazu@Basilisk9466: Borg ships dead ahead. Let's clean them out. Engage and fire at will.

[9:41] Rori@zanethesage: [Bi'ara] TCS engaged, Commodore. Fight with honor.

[9:41] Matthew Erik Sharp@Erik-99: Ah frick

[9:41] Collage@grgrafitti: Poor Will.

[9:42] Matthew Erik Sharp@Erik-99: Lacking in information here. No one said anything about Borg.

[9:42] Lazu@Basilisk9466: Nicely done. Scanning... anyone else getting Kazon warp signatures? What the hell are they doing out this far?

[9:42] Rori@zanethesage: *dives in and aroudn the Borg wrecks* Confirmed! That was fast...

[9:42] Ten@Farmer42: I've got a small flotilla on sensors.

[9:43] Dekan@kanekasier: [Coms] We see them. Probably picking through the rubble. Shouldn't be an issue.

[9:43] Lazu@Basilisk9466: They've probably found something good. Let's see what it is. Doubt they'll respond to a polite enquiry though.

[9:43] Matthew Erik Sharp@Erik-99: [Cap Geiger] Erik, have a small group of our friends ready.

[9:43] Dekan@kanekasier: [Coms] Daehlen can take point; follow us in

[9:43] Matthew Erik Sharp@Erik-99: Way ahead of you.

[9:44] Rori@zanethesage: *rolls idly as she flies* Moving in.

[9:44] Lazu@Basilisk9466: Got it, eyes on a disabled Romulan warbird. Not one of ours, I'm pretty sure.

[9:44] Dekan@kanekasier: [Coms] Permission to engage?

[9:44] Lazu@Basilisk9466: Take them down.

[9:44] Ten@Farmer42: Tagging vulnerabilities. Sharing sensor data...now

[9:44] Dekan@kanekasier: [Coms] You got it!

[9:45] Matthew Erik Sharp@Erik-99: [a couple freelance ships warp in and aid the fight]

[9:45] Rori@zanethesage: *rolls and dives around, using those quad phasers for effect*

[9:45] Dekan@kanekasier: [Coms] Targets down, recovering fighters

[9:45] Lazu@Basilisk9466: I.R.W. T'ralis, definitely not one of ours. Scanning.

[9:46] Collage@grgrafitti: *pushes buttons at her console* I could do stuff too...

[9:46] Matthew Erik Sharp@Erik-99: [to freelance ships] Thanks for the help. Remain with us for now.

[9:46] Lazu@Basilisk9466: Confirmed, cargo bays full of Borg wreckage. Let's see if we can plunder their nav computers, prepare boarding teams.

[9:47] Dekan@kanekasier: [Dekan] Combat engineering teams are uh, standing by.

[9:47] Matthew Erik Sharp@Erik-99: We get salvage claim on non-Borg tech. We need compensation for this kind of work.

[9:47] Collage@grgrafitti: Dibs, oh my god Dibs Dibs Dibs Dibs Dibs!

[9:47] Rori@zanethesage: Disengage TCS, Ituno, bridge is yours till I get back. Have the OMEGAs on standby.

[9:47] Ten@Farmer42: Sensors show us clear for boarding, Captain Lukita.

[9:50] Rori@zanethesage: Bridge, keep open lines at all times.

[9:51] Collage@grgrafitti: Dood, check this out, BattleNet *somehow links command access for the away team* Deep Blue can suck it.

[9:54] Rori@zanethesage: *looks around* Can't seem to get enough of their Borg tech...let's move forward.

[9:54] Lazu@Basilisk9466: Well, that was a warm welcome. Picking up an access terminal ahead, past all this wreckage.

[9:54] Matthew Erik Sharp@Erik-99: We'll try to leave some goods for you guys.

[9:54] Ten@Farmer42: *Pats the wrist mounted electrical projector* The Lukari make pretty good guns...

[9:54] Lazu@Basilisk9466: Eyes on more Romulans up ahead.

[9:54] Dekan@kanekasier: Oh.

[9:55] Ten@Farmer42: Especially when integrated into a borg...

[9:55] Dekan@kanekasier: This place is a uh, real mess...

[9:55] Lazu@Basilisk9466: Just lucky the Kazon hadn't got around to boarding. Keep moving, should be one more group ahead.

[9:55] Rori@zanethesage: *looks around, seeing all the damage* Whatever it is, it chewed this ship up good.

[9:55] Dekan@kanekasier: Can't um, say I feel bad for the Tal Shiar, but...

[9:55] Collage@grgrafitti: Wasn't me.

[9:56] Rori@zanethesage: Stack up!

[9:56] Lazu@Basilisk9466: That's all of them.

[9:57] Lazu@Basilisk9466: Except... two drones?

[9:57] Rori@zanethesage: Oh my god..*looks down at the two*

[9:57] Dekan@kanekasier: This um... This seems... Off.

[9:57] Collage@grgrafitti: I should have drones. I wonder what th logistics are behind making drones

[9:57] Lazu@Basilisk9466: Damaged. And only partially assimilated. Someone check them, I'm going to go over computer records.

[9:57] Matthew Erik Sharp@Erik-99: [Sharp's team places beacons on certain tech and salvage and they're transported away]

[9:57] Rori@zanethesage: *muses* Do we need a doctor...or an engineer?

[9:58] Ten@Farmer42: Both.

[9:58] Dekan@kanekasier: Well uh, you've got one...

[9:58] Collage@grgrafitti: A Doctineer!

[9:58] Rori@zanethesage: *takes out a tricorder and crouches, scanning* ...they're still alive and early-stage assimilation!

[9:58] Ten@Farmer42: There are liberation specialists. For them it should be relatively easy to fully disconnect.

[9:59] Collage@grgrafitti: Ooooooor bow to Queen Collage.

[9:59] Dekan@kanekasier: I can counter the nanites. I um, brought some of those when I heard we might face down some uh, some borg.

[9:59] Ten@Farmer42: Good job, commander.

[9:59] Matthew Erik Sharp@Erik-99: Collage, we don't need that.

[9:59] Dekan@kanekasier: Particularly with the Tal Shiar.

[9:59] Rori@zanethesage: *looks up at Dekan* Have them beamed out. My ship isn't equipped to deal with them.

[9:59] Lazu@Basilisk9466: Do it, and then get them back to Ten's ship. I figure her CMO has some experience with Borg.

[9:59] Rori@zanethesage: *stands up and looks around*

[10:00] Collage@grgrafitti: Talk about a real Doctineer

[10:00] Lazu@Basilisk9466: In other news... jackpot. I have their nav plots, should lead us straight to their HQ.

[10:00] Rori@zanethesage: This place gives me the creeps...

[10:00] Ten@Farmer42: She does. She's been my personal doctor since I was a child.

[10:00] Dekan@kanekasier: Subadmiral? Your uh, heh, your place or mine?

[10:00] Ten@Farmer42: Mine.

[10:00] Ten@Farmer42: Tag 'em, and I'll send them home.

[10:00] Lazu@Basilisk9466: We've got what we need. Beam us out and let's get underway.

[10:01] Dekan@kanekasier: *Nods, kneels to administer the counter agents, and then steps back* They're safe, for uh, for now.

[10:01] Rori@zanethesage: *looks at the console Lazu's in front of* OMEGAs, stand down for now. Beam me up, Bi'ara.

[10:01] Collage@grgrafitti: Wonder who they are

[10:01] Matthew Erik Sharp@Erik-99: [tags the remain salvage of interest] We're done here and the area seems clear.

[10:01] Ten@Farmer42: Ekhesai, two to beam up with emergency tags from the Dhelan.

[10:02] Matthew Erik Sharp@Erik-99: [taps his wrist tech] Garrett, we're done here.

Dekan@kanekasier: Dekan to Daehlen, one to beam up

Ten@Farmer42: Lazu? We ready to move out ourselves? I don't think this bird is stable, and god only knows why the Kazon haven't boarded yet.

[10:03] Lazu@Basilisk9466: Yes. Energise.

[10:04] Ten@Farmer42: Let's scoot, people. Places to be. Tal Shiar sum to deal with.

[10:04] Dekan@kanekasier: [Coms] This is the Daehlen; we can torp that wreck when you're all clear.

[10:05] Matthew Erik Sharp@Erik-99: [Garrett] Right. We got all the salvage. The others should be satisfied with this.

[10:07] Rori@zanethesage: *returns to her bridge and gets back in the chair* TCS reactivate! Con's mine! Let's break into a holding pattern and watch the area.

[10:08] Ten@Farmer42: I've got the instalation on sensors.

[10:08] Lazu@Basilisk9466: Got a listening post up ahead. Move to engage and destroy.

[10:08] Matthew Erik Sharp@Erik-99: We're closing in, Garrett. I got the others on standby.

[10:09] Lazu@Basilisk9466: Not friendly! 6 o'clock!

[10:09] Rori@zanethesage: Shields to full! General quarters!

[10:09] Matthew Erik Sharp@Erik-99: Lovely.

[10:09] Dekan@kanekasier: [Coms] Where did those bastards come from?

[10:10] Ten@Farmer42: No idea. They didn't show up on any of our scans.

[10:10] Lazu@Basilisk9466: Cloaked patrol, probably. That was a Llaihr class. We're in the right place.

[10:10] Collage@grgrafitti: Summoned by bad language and stutters, it is all Commander Dekan's fault.

[10:10] Lazu@Basilisk9466: Dekan, care to torpedo that satellite?

[10:11] Matthew Erik Sharp@Erik-99: Firing missiles

[10:11] Collage@grgrafitti: Hax, hax the satellite

[10:11] Dekan@kanekasier: [Coms] Soon as I teach that kid some manners, talk bad about the Comman- [Dekan] Can do, Captain.

[10:11] Rori@zanethesage: I'm hit! I have damage on decks two and four, nothing serious but I have reduced firepower.

[10:12] Lazu@Basilisk9466: I've got eyes on the HQ. Big one. Move forward, it's probably well armed and defended, so be careful.

[10:13] Dekan@kanekasier: [Coms, chargrined] We see it. All hands still at battlestations.

[10:13] Ten@Farmer42: We're ready for anything over here.

[10:13] Matthew Erik Sharp@Erik-99: Calling in freelance captains. Let's put them out of business.

[10:13] Rori@zanethesage: All hands, blue alert, rig for silent running.

[10:13] Collage@grgrafitti: Not literally, I mean, ethereal horror from beyond kinda rates outside "being ready"

[10:14] Ten@Farmer42: That's...

[10:14] Ten@Farmer42: That's a gateway ring...

[10:14] Rori@zanethesage: Strong energy readings dead ahead.

[10:14] Rori@zanethesage: *gets out of her chair in the dramatic fashion* Wait...they did it?

[10:14] Matthew Erik Sharp@Erik-99: [Cap Geiger] You guys better have a decent payout for this.

[10:14] Collage@grgrafitti: *squeals excitedly* I love Iconian junk!

[10:14] Ten@Farmer42: CONTACT WITH HOSTILES!

[10:14] Dekan@kanekasier: [Coms] Transwarp ring! What in the... Red alert!

[10:15] Rori@zanethesage: Drop the cloak, go hot, hot hot!

[10:15] Lazu@Basilisk9466: That's not Iconian, that's Borg. The crazy bastards have a full on Borg Transwarp gate.

[10:15] Matthew Erik Sharp@Erik-99: [engages T'Varos

[10:15] Collage@grgrafitti: I like all junk, so still pretty excited

[10:15] Matthew Erik Sharp@Erik-99: [multiple freelance ships warp in]

[10:16] Lazu@Basilisk9466: Engaging the station turrets, phaser spread looks good.

[10:17] Dekan@kanekasier: [Dekan] We've got you shielded, Ten. Fighters are in escort formation.

[10:17] Matthew Erik Sharp@Erik-99: [freelance ships outmaneuver the Tal'Shiar ships and overwhelm them]

[10:18] Lazu@Basilisk9466: That was way too easy, even with all our firepower. Either they're weaker than we thought, or...

[10:18] Collage@grgrafitti: I'm not going to say it.

[10:18] Collage@grgrafitti: Because as soon as I do, they'll warp in and start shooting, and someone will blame me

[10:19] Rori@zanethesage: You're learning, Collage. *snickers*

[10:19] Collage@grgrafitti: One of us has to

[10:19] Matthew Erik Sharp@Erik-99: [Cap Geiger] I thought the Tal'Shiar was supposed to be more tough than this?

[10:19] Dekan@kanekasier: [Dekan] I've still got a uh, bad feeling about all this. It's... Getting worse.

[10:20] Matthew Erik Sharp@Erik-99: Careful, Garrett. They maybe a rag bunch, but they're still the secret police of the Star Empire.

[10:20] Ten@Farmer42: A minimally defended gateway ring? Of course this is a setup.

[10:21] Lazu@Basilisk9466: Well, let's keep working. Scaning the HQ, let's see if we can find something worth finding before the trap hits.

[10:21] Dekan@kanekasier: [Coms] We've got nothing on scope but fading singularity breaches and one banged up station. Sensors are active though.

[10:21] Ten@Farmer42: That's....

[10:21] Rori@zanethesage: I'm going to check out that ring...*the Himiko vanishes, its cloak active*

[10:21] Ten@Farmer42: Wait. No. It can't be. That's...

[10:22] Dekan@kanekasier: [Coms] Oh sh- [Dekan] Shieldsup!

[10:22] Matthew Erik Sharp@Erik-99: You guys are going to owe us extra for this shit.

[10:22] Lazu@Basilisk9466: Incoming warp signatures. Tal Shiar battlecruiser, and... oh hell...

[10:22] Rori@zanethesage: BRING US ABOUT! *squeals over communications, trying to flee*

[10:22] Ten@Farmer42: We've got an incoming hail.

[10:23] Lazu@Basilisk9466: [Tal Shiar Admiral] Well. Look who's shown their faces.

[10:23] Collage@grgrafitti: I DIDN'T SAY IT *clings to her console for oh-my-god-we're-gonna-die-dear-life*

[10:23] Matthew Erik Sharp@Erik-99: [freelance ships form up and ready to engage the new ships]

[10:23] Lazu@Basilisk9466: [TS Admiral] I don't think you brought enough ships, though.

[10:23] Rori@zanethesage: ...we're going to need a lot more OMEGAs.

[10:24] Lazu@Basilisk9466: Please don't tell me that you've done what it looks like.

[10:24] Ten@Farmer42: Lazu, the friends I mentioned? They're setting up an escape vector for us. Sending the route to all ships now, just in case.

[10:24] Rori@zanethesage: All stations, general quarters, prepare for Borg intruders!

[10:24] Ten@Farmer42: No...nonononono....

[10:24] Lazu@Basilisk9466: *A second transmission joins the first.* Cooperation was... logical.

[10:24] Lazu@Basilisk9466: *The Transwarp ring flares to life.*

[10:25] Matthew Erik Sharp@Erik-99: Ah hell. Son of a bitch.

[10:25] Rori@zanethesage: The ring is powering up! Power levels through the roof!

[10:25] Ten@Farmer42: This.,..You shouldn't...

[10:25] Lazu@Basilisk9466: You allied with a QUEEN?!

[10:26] Dekan@kanekasier: [Dekan] Ohelementswhy

[10:26] Lazu@Basilisk9466: [TS Admiral] As she said, it was logical. We both had things to gain. Such as allies for when fools like you came knocking.

[10:26] Matthew Erik Sharp@Erik-99: Oh yeah. I'll have a talk with Captain Lukita about owing us extra for this.

[10:26] Ten@Farmer42: You...can't...

[10:26] Matthew Erik Sharp@Erik-99: [Cap Geiger] You better.

[10:26] Dekan@kanekasier: [Dekan] Subadmiral?

[10:26] Lazu@Basilisk9466: You're insane. I knew the Tal Shiar was desperate, but you're insane.

[10:27] Rori@zanethesage: *the Himiko is in a tight climb behind the queen under cloak*

[10:27] Collage@grgrafitti: Lazu, the better part of Valor. We are going to get murdered.

[10:27] Rori@zanethesage: All ships, engage them now!

[10:27] Lazu@Basilisk9466: [TS Admiral] I don't think further discussion is useful. I look forward to picking over your wreckage once the combined fleet is done with you.

[10:28] Lazu@Basilisk9466: I'm picking up a lot of incoming transwarp signatures.

[10:28] Ten@Farmer42: nooooo....nonononono....

[10:28] Lazu@Basilisk9466: Fleet, prepare to disengage.

[10:28] Matthew Erik Sharp@Erik-99: [pushes Garrett's weapons crewmember aside] This is my specialty.

[10:28] Lazu@Basilisk9466: *The Tal Shiar command ship warps clear.*

[10:29] Lazu@Basilisk9466: [Queen] Ah. One more thing. 5265636f6e6e656374696e67

[10:29] Dekan@kanekasier: [Coms] Commander? [Dekan] Drop all platforms! We're uh... Gonnabuyemsometime

[10:29] Ten@Farmer42: *A loud scream is heard, and Ten's ship halts for a moment*

[10:30] Dekan@kanekasier: [Dekan] Medical to the Irrah Ekhesai! Go! Gonow!

[10:30] Lazu@Basilisk9466: [Queen] You will be assimilated. Resistance is futile. *The Diamond warps clear. Then the transwarp gate vomits ships.*

[10:30] Collage@grgrafitti: *starts tapping furiously on her console*

[10:30] Lazu@Basilisk9466: RETREAT.

[10:31] Rori@zanethesage: All ships, retreat!

[10:31] Dekan@kanekasier: [Coms] All go; We'll hold them for a moment, then follow! Go!

[10:31] Matthew Erik Sharp@Erik-99: All freelance ships, fall back.

[10:31] Collage@grgrafitti: Donating escape vectors to fleet. *transmits millions of calculations to the scaping fleet*

[10:31] Lazu@Basilisk9466: Sigma Delta 5201986 Bravo, all ships, FALL BACK.

[10:31] Ten@Farmer42: This is the Irrah Ekhesai. The subadmiral...she's...she's down.

[10:32] Dekan@kanekasier: [Coms] We read you Irrah Ekhesai. We'll guard your path out. Get moving!

[10:32] Rori@zanethesage: *rolls past Dekan* I'll draw their fire, you pick em off!

[10:32] Collage@grgrafitti: Run now, triage later *her fingers fly over the console, almost overloading it*

[10:33] Dekan@kanekasier: [Dekan] Torpedo spread across their bow! Watch for the Himiko!

[10:33] Rori@zanethesage: *does tight barrel rolls, the phasers and cannons ripple firing across the field of battle*

[10:33] Ten@Farmer42: *Ten's ship makes all haste out of system*

[10:33] Matthew Erik Sharp@Erik-99: [Cap Geiger] All freelance ships, disperse and lay low.

[10:34] Dekan@kanekasier: [Dekan] Dropping defense platform! Himiko, go! We're warping out!

[10:34] Rori@zanethesage: Break away, I'll cover your escape!

[10:34] Lazu@Basilisk9466: Engaging warp, Angelfire is clear.

[10:35] Dekan@kanekasier: *The Daehlen fires one last spread, then warps while the automated platforms continue to overload their heat sinks firing plasma beam after plasma beam*

[10:36] Lazu@Basilisk9466: All ships, pull back to New Romulus. Doesn't look like they're pursuing.

[10:36] Rori@zanethesage: *the Himiko takes significant damage while covering, and manages to warp away*

[10:36] Matthew Erik Sharp@Erik-99: [hails the Angelfire] Lukita, I hope you know that you owe us extra for that bit of mess back there.

[10:36] Ten@Farmer42: This is the Irrah Ekhesai. The Subadmiral is unresponsive...We're getting her to sickbay now.

[10:37] Lazu@Basilisk9466: I know, Erik, that went a long way off plan. We'll discuss compensation after debrief.

[10:37] Matthew Erik Sharp@Erik-99: I'll hold you to that. [closes channel]

[10:38] Rori@zanethesage: *the Himiko comes out of warp at the New Romulus system, instantly entering a cartwheeling flat spin, the maneuvering thrusters firing violently to slow the ship*

[10:38] Lazu@Basilisk9466: Himiko, you need help?

Dekan@kanekasier: [Coms] Hang on Himiko, we've got engineering teams on standby.

[10:40] Rori@zanethesage: *she manages to right it, but the HImiko is belching plasma, and the comms are staticy* Yeah...I ripped a nacelle in warp. Probably was too banged up to even go to warp, but...

[10:40] Matthew Erik Sharp@Erik-99: You can head out, Garrett. I...have another ride back to Risa when I'm done.

[10:40] Lazu@Basilisk9466: The Angelfire's in decent shape. We'll give you a tow to a dockyard. For now, everyone get planetside for debrief.

[10:40] Rori@zanethesage: *coughs over the line* Understood...did eveyrone make it?

[10:40] Matthew Erik Sharp@Erik-99: [Cap Geiger] I see. Take care then.

[10:41] Lazu@Basilisk9466: We got lucky, no ships lost, but we're all pretty battered. Still checking casualty reports here.

[10:41] Dekan@kanekasier: [Dekan] I can ah, task some of my teams to that. Blown nacelles are um, something of a hazard when you've got six of them. *Chuckles ruefully*

[10:41] Rori@zanethesage: Keep...me posted. I think I lost about six good engineers when my cell ruptured...

[10:41] Matthew Erik Sharp@Erik-99: [walks through the lobby, feeling nastolgic in every step]

[10:42] Rori@zanethesage: No, no, I'm sealing off facilities. No bodies unless they're robots or androids.

[10:42] Rori@zanethesage: I'm going to evacuate my crew and go grey once I'm in dock. Tow me in and I'll see you all in a bit.

[10:42] Rori@zanethesage: Himiko out- *the channel dies off, comms died out*
