Current Alignment: Capital of The United Aschen Empire

Current Government: United Aschen Empire

Langara is the capital of the Aschen Empire. The terrain of this geologically young world is fairly temperate, alpine climates at the higher latitudes, and tropical climates near the equator. Langara has an average temperature of 43.6 Degrees Fahrenheit, and has a 74% Nitrogen and 22.5 Percent Oxygen, the flora of this world is indistinguishable from that of Terra, and the world is not terribly alien in appearance.

Langara is the fourth planet in it's system, in the outer edge of the Sun's habitable zone.

Langara has seven continents and three oceans, and is home to the original twelve Aschen nations.

Langaran Continents.

Map of Langara

Alpheus - Predominately temperate climate with a varied geography, Alpheus is a lush mountainous continent and home to the Province of Caprica, and Caprica City itself.

Dromas - Dromas is a southern, predominately lush and warm climate with a large southern Savannah, Dromas is home to the lush flatlands of Aerilon to the north, and the arid, savannah like climate of Libran to the south.

Lamos - Lamos is a cool, lush continent to the north in Langara's eastern hemisphere. There is quite a bit of precipitation and every several years, Lamos is hit with powerful storms from the northern Tethys ocean. Lamos is home to the Province of Sagittaron, and it's Capital, Tawa, a coastal bay city.

Metis - Metis is a large southern continent in Langara's eastern hemisphere, characterized by a massive, expansive desert in the north western portion of the continent, and lush jungles and savannah to the south. The Provinces of Leonis, and Scorpia share Metis in the north and south respectively.

Tibertus - Tibertus is a large, lush and arid, Siberian continent with a cold unforgiving climate in the northern portions of the continent. However the western side of the continent is lush, and used for farming by the Tauron people. Tibertus is home to the Provinces of Tauron, Picon, and Canceron

Inachus - Inachus is a mountainous, heavily populated continent in the south eastern hemisphere of Langara. Inachus has climates ranging from temperate, to Arid, and is home to the provinces of Gemenon, part of Canceron, and Virgon.

Oceanus - A large collection of islands in the eastern side of Langara, and has a largely tropical climate, home to the Province of Aquaria.

Tethys Ocean - A Large, cold and unforgiving ocean in the eastern side of the Alpheus Continent, known for it's storms. (Terran Equivalent would be the Atlantic)

Aries Ocean - Large, somewhat warm ocean on the western side (Terran Pacific Equivalent)

Menoetius Ocean - Warm ocean in the southern Hemisphere, south of Inachus.

Enipeus Sea - A large body of water bordering the Tibertus, Inachus, and Metis Continents, likened to an Aschen Mediterranean.

Hanley nodded. "Have your engineering crew provide my engineering crew with specification for whatever parts they need." Hanley explained.

The two Marines standing on either side of the Admiral both shrugged at eachother. But the Admiral kept her composure, even as she surveyed her own surroundings. She was fairly young for a woman of her station, but her eyes betrayed the years of experience she had.

"That's fine, she can come with us. I'll have someone from Intelligence to join us as well." Hanley added, as she turned to leave the bridge. "You mentioned you have information, I trust that in exchange for these repairs, and for the medical attention provided to your crew, you will provide me with whatever information you know."

She stopped almost immediately before exiting the bridge.

"For starters, what exactly happened here?"

Ean chuckled as she stopped. "Well that depends. Do you want the full honest explanation here in front of your men, or would you rather we get your intelligence guy and keep it private. I don't know much about the training you boys receive" he said nodding at the marines "but I've spent my own share of years as a grunt, enough to know that soldiers do so very much like to gossip."

As he said this he waved at Emily, who took a clear pad from her station, tapped on it a few times and sent a message to Chief Berri down in Engineering, advising her of the Aschen's offer. A short moment after, the pad beeped, and anyone who could read backwards through the clear pad would see a number of explicatives having been sent as a response, enough so that the statement made little to no sense.

Of course Emily only said "Berri's been informed, You can have one of your engineers meet with her, she'll be ready to give them the explanations they need."

Esteem's Hangar deck.

Hanley nodded in response. "You're right, we should have this discussion in private."

She gestured towards a pair of large doors. "Follow me."

AHSC Reverence II 'Esteem'
Admiral's ready room.


It was a long trek, and an even longer ride through the Reverence II's high speed intraship tramway system before they reached the Admiral's ready room.

Opening with a pleasent chime, and an audible hiss from the pressure differential, Admiral Hanley's ready room was a sparsely decorated office space, with shined, black flooring, and stark white walls. In the center was a large desk, with a futuristic metal, and glass design.

Hanley moved first to sit in her chair. Already seated in an adjacent chair was an older bald man in a well dressed suit, he was diligently typing on some kind of glass slate, strange text scrolling up, and down the slate.

He stopped only to look up at Ean, then to Hanley, and then back to the screen.

There was an empty chair across from both Hanley, and the bald man. They were arranged in a triangular arrangement.

"This is Special Agent Duram, With the Imperial Intelligence's Global Defense Division." Hanley said, introducing the man.

Duram swiped at his screen, and his expression began to darken as he was seemingly watching something unfold, in real time, on his slate.

He terminated the datalink transmission, and began to focus his attention on Ean, and Claire.

On cue, Claire finally spoke up.

"So, like I asked earlier, back in the hangar bay. Your ship looks like it's been through hell to get here. People seldom end up in Aschen space by accident." Hanley said, interlacing her fingers on her desk, resting her forearms, and leaning forward.

"Those aren't turbodisruptor burns on your hull. What happened?"

Admirals room, Esteem

Ean sat down in the chair, leaning back and groaning like an old arthritic man, rubbing one of his shoulders with a grimace as he said "Your intelligence right." This was accompanied by a nod at the bald man, special agent Duram. "I know you guys like to be efficient, so with that in mind first I gotta ask if you boys have heard any news about an attack on another of your planets... Moley I think it is?"

"Molecay, Captain" Emily said from behind him, her hands crossed behind her back.

"Right, Molecay. If you guys have already gotten the news about that then that means we can jump right into it. If you haven't, well then that means we gotta go with the long version."

Engineering, Cobalt Glaive

"Oh for fucks sake, Marco get that valve sealed, we're losing the pressure differential. Sam get your ass in gear and finish that patch, and Margaret get out of that slot before you-" A red headed woman, standing barely more than five feet tall, was shouting orders near the core of the ship, where both it's engines and reactor were located. Unfortunately she was cut off when one of the pipes to the reactor exploded, incinerating a young black haired woman. The smell of charred flesh was barely noticeable in the chaos of the reactor room.

Medbay, Glaive

A handful of carts with wounded were being rolled out to make way to the Aschen vessel's infirmary, but several cases were still being treated in Intensive care. One such case was a blue furred creature that looked like a cross between a satyr and a slug, with no mouth, and solid black eyes, four total, two in the normal position, and two more atop prehensile stalks. Unfortunately the creature's wounds were severe, one of it's stalks had been sheared off, along with an arm and the lower part of one of his legs. Doctor Amed'dali was working to save him with a handful of nurses, attempting to cauterize and stop the bleeding.

Inside the ready room, both Claire, and Duram gave Ean an annoyed look. They looked to each-other, and Duram shrugged.

"We received word that an attack has transpired, yes." Claire replied.

"The Military has gone onto high alert, and we're making preparations for possible future attacks." The Admiral said with a nod, as she pulled up something on her screen.

She brought her gaze back to Ean, and began to jot down some notations. "That's why you're here. You're going to tell us everything you know, including how your ship was able to circumvent our defenses." The Admiral said. "In exchange for treating your wounded, and repairing your ship."

Duram simply nodded, and began to type some more.

"Now." Claire said. "Go ahead, and jump right in."

Inside the Medbay, those that were the must humanlike were moved first, Aschen medical personnel moving them in special pods, where they could be treated. Those with minor injuries were taken to the infirmary via stretcher, while those with more severe injuries were sedated, and placed in these pods, which were filled with a special amniotic liquid that was designed to rapidly speed up the healing factor.

The single strange creature was the subject of curiosity by Aschen medical personnel. No one knew how to treat it, so it was left in the medbay, with the occasional curious, or disgusted look.

Ean rubbed his neck, took a deep breath, and went right into it as he was asked.

"About eight months ago or so, we were hired by this group of people that approached us on our way through Andromeda. They had a come in out of nowhere in a similar manner to how we did on you. They asked us to help them develop a few things."

"The first thing they wanted was to refine their version of what I call the Shockpoint drive, that's how we came in here. Now your uh, your plank thingies, they stop people from being able to warp into your space. That's the fun part about the Shockpoint drive. It doesn't warp or teleport or open a portal or none of that. It just makes us and the surrounding space go really fast. A lensing field protects us from Time Dilation effects from exceeding the speed of light. Think of it as taking an egg, suspending it in jelly inside of a jar, and then launching that jar from a slingshot."

"They hired us to revise and fine tune their system, guess they copied us, or maybe they came up with their own version. Gotta say the one they used has a helluva lot more magic in it then ours. Anyway, they paid us a lot of money so it wasn't a job I was gonna turn down, gotta feed this lot somehow." He jerked a thumb at Emily, who rolled her eyes.

After that however, he starts to get a more serious look to his face. "They had us refine and fix their system, and as we were doing that, I took a gander at what else they had. I noticed something troubling. They were taking everything I fixed, and using it to make things I'd never thought of. But the main difference was that most of what they were developing looked to be invasionary devices. I make it a rule to never get on any one groups bad side, but something about how these lot were acting had me suspicious."

"I had Emily do some digging then." He said, gesturing for her to continue.

The smallish girl piped up and continued the narrative. "They're called Asylians. And while we're not sure where they originate from, they clearly have a great deal of ability at their command. During our stay with the ship that asked us to help them, we encountered no less than seventy five other vessels, and from the recon team that I had snooping around their vessel, we discovered that number consists of less than five percent of their primary fleet. Everything was pointing to an invasion of some sort. That in and of itself would have been fine, not our concern. But after determining exactly what they were planning, the captain made a decision with his conscious rather than his brain."

Ean Winced at her harsh tone and shrugged. "We found out that the reason they wanted help refining the Shockpoint is to scale down the system, for use in a gravity based ground assault device. But the reason they wanted something like that isn't for occupation reasons. They intend, from what we discovered, to 'wipe clean the ash plate'." Ean shook his head at that. "I'm a lot of things, but I can't stand by when someones talking about genocide. Now I figure you lot don't want or need our help, especially since I'm sure you're aware that some of my crew ain't exactly human, and even the some of the ones that are human ain't exactly normal. I've got both aliens and magic users in my crew, I've even got some alien magic users. My problem is I'm a big softie, and I tend to pick up strays and orphans. Killing isn't my nature, but letting others die when there's something I could or should have done is also not my nature."

"So to make a long and exciting story short, We tried to leave, and the Asylians tried to stop us. Almost succeeded too. About half my crew is dead or injured, ships barely functional, and our jump was way off. But at least now you know who hit your planet, and what they want." He smiled easily at them, head tilted to one side.

Hanley listened to the words with deep consideration, while Duram typed with a hurried, and frantic pace. This intelligence was all very good, it led to motive, and made for good propaganda to galvanize the population. Both Aschen officers considered the statements being given carefully.

There was a long pause as Hanley considered the gravity of the situation.

"If what you say is true, then you have done the Empire a great service in warning us so that we may prepare adequately for the coming invasion." Hanley said, before she turned her attention to Duram, whom paused from typing so that he could briefly look up to Hanley.

"You'll need to inform the Emperor, and possibly our allies." He said with a slight nod.

"I know the Taiyou will want to get involved, thankfully Emperor Prince has made overtures to strengthen our existing alliances with the Continuum, too." Hanley replied. She steepled her fingers on her desk, before she decided to make a decision then, and there. Even if the Emperor could possibly object.

"Our scientists will want to understand this Shockpoint drive, and access to everything you know from your time working with the Asylians." Hanley said as she leaned forward.

"I intend to honor my portion of the bargain, by repairing your ship, and towing you outside our borders, but I want to offer something more. We want to understand the inner workings of this technology, you will be compensated generously in whatever forms of payment you desire." The Admiral said, looking to Duram, and then back to Ean.

"Unfortunately, I would ask that your people remain quartered aboard this ship while you do so, They will be treated with dignity, and given access to our facilities, which can be quite accommodating." Hanley explained.

"If these Asylians intend to wipe us out, I fear they will be disappointed. The Aschen people are forged in the fires of hardship. Through the crucible of one hundred and fifty thousand years of war." Hanley said, bringing up her screen, keying a communication interface, she was typing up a sort of Instant message while they were speaking, her hands dancing across the keyboard.

The Computer chimed in response.

Hanley then turned to Ean.

"Begs to question though, and perhaps it's our paranoia. We're not exactly known around the galaxy for being the friendly sort." The Admiral said calmly. "Many would see us exterminated, so why help us? You risked everything coming here."

Admirals office, Esteem

Ean shrugged at the Admirals question. "Already told you I was a soldier once. I've killed on orders, put down a hundred men who I'm sure were as scared shitless as I was. But I killed them for the same reason hey tried to kill me, orders."

Ean leaned forward, clasping his hands together and sighed deeply, his hat covering over his face. "When I got those orders there was always a reason for it. It wasn't always a good reason, but there was a reason. Sometimes it was revenge, sometimes it was for profit, sometimes it was for pride, honor, or some other silly thing."

"But these Asylian guys, they're not doing this for any reason other than because they feel they can. Their bullies, plain and simple, and they clearly got no qualms about slaughtering civilians and innocents. For gods sake they plan to kill children, and for no other damn reason but to quote prevent future infestations"

Emily's face was a set of hard lines, and Ean shook his head at the very thought of it. After a moment he leaned back and took a long draught from his flask. Once the cap was back on he got started again.

"As for the tech I helped develop, it's pretty straightforward. It wraps a ship in a lensing field, basically a strong magnetic sheath holding photons in stasis. That forms the shell of your "egg". After that, a gravitational manipulator generates a black hole and anchors it to the front of the ship. That's where the acceleration comes from, the black hole pulls the ship forward, while the anchor keeps it positioned in front, like a carrot on a stick I guess. They've done something similar with a few adaptations, they took an idea from another of my ships systems, our Thunder gun. Basically they have sort of missile that they launch towards a planet, it doesn't show up on any sensors as anything other than a hunk of metal, in a fight you'd probably mistake it for debris from ship damage. Problem is that once it actually gets to a planet, or to another ship for that matter. They're able to tether it to their ship, allowing them to nearly instantly move forces from one to the other. Only way I can think of to counter it is with a hard barrier between the ship and the anchor"

Ean rubs his neck again and then continues "Other than that, you might wanna look out for their gravity sling. It's essentially the same as the shockpoint drive, but it works for short distances, allowing them to reposition almost instantly. I haven't figured out how they got that one to work, but I imagine it's similar to their troop transport method where they're just using something in the area as an anchor to relocate to, maybe a drone or something."

The captain looked back at Emily and nodded at her "I forgetting anything hun?"

Emily spoke up with slight agitation "There's a couple things. One of the weapons they hit us with was biochemical in nature, several of our men just turned to ash. We don't know how or why, it seemed magical in nature but none of our sensors or sorcerers were able to detect or determine what happened. I'd be on the look out for that, you guys have more comprehensive anti-magic defenses, but even so."

"Other than that, I feel you should also know, we were fighting them for about two hours trying to get our Shockpoint drive charged, and kick their forces off our ship. At first the fight was going in our favor, we had surprised them and managed to get some distance. However after only fifteen minutes they started to predict our movements, almost like they knew what we were thinking. I've checked and double checked almost twenty times now, but the only conclusion I can come to is that they somehow studied us as they fought us, and learned how to counteract all our tactics. Your empire may have more than a hundred years of experience in warefare, but I wouldn't say that's a good thing. The longer a battle draws out with these guys, or a war, the more they're going to learn and adapt to counteract you. You might need more than just Allies to beat them."

Emily shrugged then and crossed her arms, turning off to one side as though she'd stopped caring as she said while walking off to one corner of the office. "But that's just my opinion, take it as you will Aschen."

Ean grimaced and waved her off, whispering. "Please don't take that personally, She's had it rougher than most of us. She's our helmswoman and our tactical officer, and she doesn't take well to losing, or authority. After what we've been through, well... We're all on edge I guess."

He sighed again and leaned back in the chair, pulling his foot up and resting it on his knee. "As for your offer, If you lot don't mind having a gaggle of mangy strays and wastrels that nobody else wants around hanging out with ya, I've got no problem sharing everything I've heard and learned about em with ya." He tapped his nose then and said something particular interesting "matter of fact, I don't know it for sure, but I might be able to give you a general heading as to their home sector. You can take and use that how you will."

Med bay, Glaive

It took almost two hours before the operation could be called complete. Doctor Amed'dali sighed and stepped out of surgery, exhausted and sore from being so tense for so long. She eyed the Aschen soldiers and personal standing about the area, their curiosity and disgust evident to her. Well if they wanted to complain they'd have to take it up with their betters, she thought, They're the ones who invited us.

Engineering, Glaive

Where Doctor Amed'dali had just finished up her battle in surgery, Ean's chief of engineering Sasha Gourndy was still fighting to keep the ship from exploding. She'd managed to bring the temperature of the core down to a level she was comfortable in saying wouldn't result in everyone in the sector dying anytime soon, but she still wasn't happy with the output. The Reactor was so far gone at this point, she put the rough estimate of the ship being sail worthy again between two to three weeks. "Captain ain't gonna like that." She muttered to herself, eyeing the Aschen personnel she'd yelled at to 'fuck off my shop' until they decided to patiently wait outside of wrench throwing range. She growled at them with all the disgust the short woman had in her body, She sure as hell wasn't going to let anyone else touch her darling in such a state, no matter how high and mighty they thought themselves.

"Turns to ash..." Hanley commented to herself, as Agent Duram peered up from his data slate. "It sounds to me like Thalaron radiation, we've been working on an experiemental shield defense to remedy the shortcomings of thalaron weapons employed on some of our prototype strike craft. It may come in handy when faced off with whatever they're using to turn people to ash." Duram said off handedly, while Hanley nodded.

"We'll either need the shockpoint drive from your ship to study it, or we will need the blueprints to construct our own." Duram said, tapping a few more notations.

"Ideally I would like to get a crew to study your ship's technology, disassemble it completely, get a complete schematic of all essential systems, and then reassemble it, but we will also accept unrestricted access. You will of course be compensated for your efforts."

"Let's start small, Special Agent." Hanley rebuked. "Our engineers can learn a great deal just by doing repairs, we will also have to fabricate parts for them, Let's start small." The Admiral suggested, while Duram nodded.

Listening to Ean's explanation, Hanley was already starting to formulate an understanding of what they were going to be up against. So their technology was gravitic in nature, she presumed this would be confirmed by EVE's spectral analysis of the battle of Molecay. Not only would they have to stay one step ahead, but end battles decisively to prevent their own tactics from being dissected, and used against them.

Of course, EVE would also analyze everything being said in this room.

Once the pair were finished explaining the situation, Hanley stood up from her seat and inclined her head, gesturing to the adjutant standing in the far side of the room.

"Ambrosia, please." Hanley instructed, and the adjutant turned to leave.

Slowly, she sat back down.

"We will have to arm ourselves, and mobilize our armed forces. When, and where do you anticipate another attack?" The Admiral asked.

Glaive, Medbay

The Aschen medics stood largely silent, talking amongst themselves, but otherwise staying out of the way. Many of them weren't trained in Xenobiology, and were unqualified to operate on aliens.

Glaive, Engineering

Most of the Aschen engineers opted to stay out of wrench throwing range except one, who curiously watched the woman work on the reactor. His name was Peter Laird, and she was the Deck Chief of the Esteem, an accomplished Aerospace engineer, and one of the lead engineers who designed, and oversaw the construction of the Reverence II.

"If you slave the ship's cooling system to the Esteems, you should be able to bring the temperatures down far enough to take the reactor offline." Laird said.

"And then, swap in one of our fusion reactors. They run off of water, which is abundant.." Then he took a look around.

"And you won't take out half a star system with you, if this thing goes critical."

Esteem, Admirals quarters

Ean had nothing to say regarding their talk of thalaron shielding or whatever, had no idea what it was. Hell he had no idea how the Asylians had turned his men to ash so whatever it was, the Aschen were welcome to try whatever they wanted.

Course when the agent mentioned tearing the ship apart Ean started laughing like a man tickled pink. "You thank your stars your not in range of Sasha for her to hear that, she'd come pluck your head clean off." He said between bouts of laughter.

"As far as the blueprints and the like, I'm willing to show you everything except the private quarters of my crew. That's their own personal space and homes, most of them live on the ship and have been for years. You wanna search em, you'll have to get their permission, and if they say no, that's the end of it." He took a hard tone here and leaned forward. "And to make my point clear, you try and force your way on any of mine, You can consider it the end of all our negotiations. My crew has trusted me into the darkest hells like you've never known, And I won't betray that to anyone no matter what's at stake, clear?"

With that said he leaned back in the chair and shrugged his shoulder, as if shifting some weight off. "Fixing the ship is something you'll have to take up with Sasha, she's not going to want any of you touching it, it's her baby. I'll talk to her and make her understand, but You'll probably have to deal with her grumbling."

"As for their next attack, That's where things get a bit more complicated. They have a map of all your systems, and from what we gathered on their plans, they don't intend to make any large moves. They want to attack at different sorts of locations and in different ways, specifically to watch how you react and respond. With what I told you earlier, You can see why yeah? They want to analyze and study how you fight, so they can find the best way to defeat you." He says, taking another sip from his flask. "Now, they hit Molecay already, according to you. What I can tell you is they'll likely hit another fringe world, and then try to hit molecay again, maybe to see how you've changed tacts. After that however I can't tell anything, they'll probably make adjustments and changes, or maybe completely change their strategy."

Emily nodded to affirm this. "We can guess and give you our impressions based on our meeting with them, but other than that there's nothing we can really say for sure."

Glaive, Engineering

Sasha Grunted at Peter. "Aye, that'd work. But we'll need direct lines, we don't have any access points for coolant outside of this room. Have ya boys pull some pipes and hoses, we'll get it sorted and bring her down. Bout time to let the old boiler go anyhow."

The Quantum reactor that was Sasha's pride and joy had powered the Cobalt glaive since it's inception. It provided power equal to a an entire planets worth of fusion reactors. Unfortunately it had always been like a giant diesel engine compared to other star ships, requiring massive amounts of fuel, and it's current state, the damage it had sustained, was certainly enough to cause a system wide wipeout.

Sasha ground her teeth, making a sound loud enough to be audible even over the reactors struggle to function, which was quite impressive. "Better make it a whole bank of fusion reactors, we'll have to pull everything here apart and rearrange some things, but I'm not gonna short the captain on power. We'll make some adjustments, come up with something later. It's what we do."

Both Duram, and Hanley sat quietly digesting what Ean was telling them, but they also knew that EVE was listening in, and comparing his description to what she already observed concerning their tactics. The objective would be to keep the Asylians from gaining any form of tactical advantage.

Hanley contemplated in silence, before her face lit up with a realization. So they would be trying to analyze their tactics, find a weakness.

“Wild weasel.” Hanley said aloud, and Duram nodded, looking up. “Wild Weasel?”

“Wild weasel tactics, and asymmetrical warfare. We could force them in a prolonged war of attrition, defense in depth.” Hanley said, while Duram nodded.

She turned her attention back to Ean, and nodded. “We won’t breach the trust of your crew mates, if we can have sufficiently complete schematics, we can fabricate a ship of our own to study, and prototype.” The Admiral said, standing from her seat.

“You have done a great service to the Empire, and if your intelligence pans out, you will be generously compensated.” The Admiral said, extending her hand. “You, and your people will have free access around this ship, so long as they do not attempt to enter a restricted area. I also ask they travel with an escort beyond their designated sector.”

“I will try to arrange accommodations planetside, where you, and your people can be more easily protected if you so desire.”

Engineering, Cobalt Glaive

Peter reacted quickly to the acknowledgement that the Glaive’s reactor needed additional coolant systems, so he grabbed his radio and brought it quickly to his ear.

“Emergency cooling pipes, make it happen!” He called out, and no more than ten minutes later, about a dozen deckhands were running into the room with several different sizes of conduit, ready to pump a supercooled slurry of ethylene glycol and liquid helium through the Glaive’s reactor to bring it down to temperature.

“We can have a fusion reactor installed with a pinch fusion module, and run with a purified deuterium fuel, it should provide the power output this ship needs, they’re also incredibly efficient. I’ll try to see if i can get you some quantum plasmid regulators to give you that extra oomph if you need it.” Peter added, pouring over the machinery before him.

“How is the power distributed? Do you use physical copper wiring, or do you use some sort of superconductor?”

Ean nodded and tipped his at to the admiral. "Just give us a bunk somewhere we can be out of the way while we wait for the glaive to get back in working order, that'll be fine. My people have only one home, and that's the glaive. We won't make ourselves anymore a nuisance to you than absolutely necessary, we'd prefer it that way if it were turned around, you follow me."

"As for blueprints and scale models, I actually have a scale model in my personal quarters, sort of birthday present from Sasha. It won't be enough for the details, but it'll be good for giving you dimensions to scale up from. Blueprints and all I've got here." He said pulling out a floppy disc. "heh... It might be difficult to get something to read this, I like to keep the most important stuff on the oldest possible format, just to make it annoying. If you can get it up and running on something I can decrypt it for you, fraid the key don't exist nowhere but in my own head."

"Other than that, I've got one request. When you start to fight these guys, please don't let them push you back to being all alone alright... I can promise you that in this universe, people like this are the exception, not the rule."

Engineering, Cobalt Glaive.

Sasha, alongside peter, directed the workers carrying pipes to various locations in the reactors core, where they'd fine ports sealed with standard lock caps blocking access to the coolant network.

To Peter himself she said "All that sounds fine and dandy, but let's keep it one thing at a time here. First we bring her down, then we pull her out, then we can talk about replacing her. Powers distributed using a liquid silver compound that's pumped through a set insulated copper pipes. Captain basically built a mechanical heart, the energy flow is matched to the flow of the liquid silver compound, and in a pinch she can pump it fast enough to bring efficiency to just about 100%."

She grumbles. "Your gonna need to know all this anyway I figure, captain said I'd have to let you look at everything in the ship, just don't fucking touch nothing I don't tell you to, or I'll bite your damn fingers off, got it?"

"We're going to put them down like a rabid animal. After that I can't make any promises, but with people like you offering help, and our allies coming forward. This could make people look more favorably on others." Claire replied, as Duram cleared his throat. "One more thing." He said, as he turned his tablet so Ean could see it. A picture of Admiral Thauce from her transmission in the battle of Molecay.

"Admiral Illia Thauce, do you know anything about this particular Asylian?" Duram asked, holding up the tablet so Ean could get a good look at it. "This is the officer that carried out the attack against Molecay." Duram didn't elaborate on any further Aschen machinations regarding the Admiral. Even Duram hadn't been briefed, as he just received the transmission from command to inquire on this particular woman.

While Duram was talking, Hanley took the disk, she would have to find an old magnetic drive somewhere, or have one fabricated.

Peter raised his eyebrow, watching as the technicians began to interface the pipes with the coolant ports on the reactor, letting the supercooled liquid flow through the coolant network.

"We use a superconducting gel matrix, in a flexible, but durable conduit. It's a zero-resistance medium capable of handling immense bursts of power, with zero energy loss." Peter explained. "It makes electrical work nearly trivial. We could probably upgrade the ship with this power distribution technology, and drastically increase your ship's performance."

Ean took one look at the picture and shuddered. "Oh yeah... that ones trouble, knew it the moment I first saw her. She wasn't around much longer than it took for them to outfit her ship with a shockpoint system, but the little bit of time I spent with her made it clear to me she was in charge. She's smart, fast, and ruthless. She's the sort that'd open a way to the warp and allow demons to spill out over your worlds, if only to distract you while she sees to her own ends."

"To make it clear, I'm not one to condone killing in cold blood, or assassination. Always prefer to be respectable about it, and face someone ya don't like while they got the gun in their hand. But this woman... If you get the chance, don't hesitate, cuz the longer she's chewing at ya, the worse it'll get."

Emily was silent but nodded in affirmation. Ean waved the picture away and said little more "She's a tight one too, doesn't like when things don't go her way... Might make use of that, put her on the back foot enough, and maybe she'll lose focus. Might help, might not, dunno."

Emily spoke up then "And just to be clear, if your facing her make absolutely sure that any weaknesses in your defense she uncovers and exploits, you seal up right away, because she will NOT hesitate to hit them. She's not above Biological, psychological, or chemical warfare, and she WILL use daemons if she thinks it'll help."

---

Sasha blinked a few times, then chuckled. "Well... Shove a stick up me arse and call me a lolly, cuz that sounds sweet as can be. What else ya got for me there." She says, coming closer to look over the technicians work. Once she verified that the Aschen technicians weren't incompetent at all, she finally relaxed a little, eying the reactor as it began cooling towards shut down.

"Aye, upgrades for this old boat'd be very welcome indeed. Have to take some of it up with the captain, but knowing him he'd just leave it all to me." She smiled then with a fiendish grin. "So with that in mind, let's really make up something special. Refit the entire weapons system, and then later Imma take you over to the foundry, show you what we're working with there, and see if you boys got anything that can make THAT sing a little sweeter."

Hanley cast a glance over to Duram, and then she nodded, before bringing her attention back to Ean. This was all valuable intelligence, and one that the Aschen would make use of.

"You've done well, I believe we can handle it from here." She said, bringing her gaze back down to a message from EVE.

"Special Agent, Captain. If you'll excuse me, I have a few other things to attend to." Claire added, as she moved out of the ready room. Hanley was going to head down to Astrometrics, where she could get a deep space message out to someone that could provide some assistance.

Duram slowly stood up.

"I'll show you to your quarters."

Taking his datapad, Peter made sure to record everything, there were several ways this vessel could be upgraded, and if the intelligence panned out, the Aschen would make the Cobalt Glaive the pride of their technological prowess.

"Light-Mass fabrication, a more efficient navigation system, energy miniaturization, refit the weapons systems with our disruptor technology? A bit dated, but very powerful." Peter said, listing off a few of the upgrades they could bestow on the ship. Resigning himself to let Sasha lead the way.

Ean nodded, rose from his seat and saluted the Admiral with a sweep of his hat, smoothly replacing it on his head as he turned to follow Duram out of the cabin, with Emily in tow.

Sasha did indeed lead Peter through the entirety of the glaive, allowing him to see all the bells and whistles, including their troop and fortification deployment system, what she called the foundry. The two of them would be spending more than a few sleepless nights together, going over the ship of course.
