"Welcome to Harbinger Perilous" said a man with a deep Texan accent, descending from the stairs confidently holding his arms out wide as if he was showing off Perilous to the new recruits. He then stood at the front of them all, looking around "I am Admiral Jones, and I am your commanding officer on this station, some of you may have heard of me in the past and my exploits during the Mars-Earth war, if you have heard of me, you know that I run a tight ship and my men are the best of the best and I expect those high standards from all of you." He walked backwards and forwards with his arms behind his back inspecting the new recruits. "Very nice, I've got a good feeling about all of you, you will all be assigned to different parts of the ship for training and to be given your positions." A man from behind stood forward who appeared to be another high ranking officer started reeling off names their officers and the sectors they are assigned too.

He got to the last few names and stopped listing them and nodded to the Admiral. "Some of you may be wondering why you haven't had your names called, this is because we have noticed your excellency in training and will be assigned to a special unit where you will be given one on one training, you will be a part of the Secret Space Unit or SSU as most know it as." As he finished speaking the sound of footsteps could be heard walking into the room, a smartly dressed man with sergeant stripes on his shoulders, the admiral just watched him smiling. Some of the recruits started to look in the corner of there eyes as the man walked down the middle of the room too the front, saluting the admiral he turned around watching the room. The admiral turned his head to the sergeant "your late sergeant Rogers." He replied "my apologies sir I just got back from reconnaissance." Rogers then proceeded to walk back and forth in front of the recruits and let out a slight smirk "Sir, are these really the new recruits, they don't look like they could fight their way out of a paper bag." he stated. The Admiral laughed and told the room "this is Sergeant Carl Rogers, the meanest toughest SOB in the galaxy, he will be one of the SSU trainers". The admiral then read out the last few names and their trainers, he got to the last name ans laughed to himself "recruit Auriana Wilford, you're the lucky one, you get the 'delightful' sergeant Rogers." Rogers looked at her looking slightly annoyed, "sir you cant be serious... her?". The admiral just smiled and turned away from the room to walk out. Rogers scowled at the Admiral and then looked to Wilford "come on Wilford, you better be ready for this, I guess I best show you to the SSU quarters." He then proceeded to swiftly walk out of the room not waiting for his new apprentice.

Rogers didn't give Aura any time to get acquainted; she wouldn't have that opportunity in the battlefield. He rushed off down corridors towards the SSU quarters. He then stopped at a door and looked over his shoulder making sure that Aura was behind him, he saw her trying to catch up and he smiled. There was a scanner next to the door, he put his eye up to the scanner and the door opened slowly. He stepped into a large long room. It was sparkling white with windows showing the stars and Earth was completely visible. All the way down there were multiple computer consoles, TV's, couches and tables, even the odd pool table. It looked like leisure room but at the same time looked as if it was some sort of war room where the SSU conducted its mission plans. At the end of the room there was a huge monitor and a long table, sort of like a meeting area.

Rogers turned around to Aura "This is where you will live from now on, SSU headquarters, the most high tech unit in the whole Earths forces. Say high to Ghost." At first nobody was around and Rogers just smirked, then all of a sudden "Howdy!" A man appeared out of nowhere next to Aura surprising her. He was dressed in a grey body suit that covered the whole of his body; he also wore green goggles that prevented you from seeing his eyes. "This is Ghost, he's our stealth expert, if there's any time we need someone to get in and out of somewhere without being seen he's our man." said Rogers. He went up to Ghost and started to talking to him, they were whispering and joking around "Get the program ready." This was the first time Aura would have seen some sort of happiness from the sergeant. He was more comfortable in the SSU, he could relax, he didn't have to always go by protocol and he actually trusted the people around there. Ghost quickly disappeared in the blink of an eye again.

"I'll show you around." He walked forward pointing left and right to different rooms. "Those two rooms are the sleeping quarters and the kitchen, that's right we have our own chef, it’s a lot better food than in the mess hall, those rooms on the right are the ship hanger where we have the Black Star, our own ship, and we have the firing range next door." There was one more room that he didn't tell her about he just kept walking towards the large monitor at the back of the room. "This is the Space Intelligence Assistant or “SIA” for short. She tells us everything we need to know about all the goings on in the universe, isn’t that right SIA” said Rogers speaking to the computer. Suddenly the computer replied in a female voice that sounded like someone had slightly altered it to make the voice sound very attractive “Yes Sergeant, I am specialised in all aspects of space travel, warfare and survival, I also have constantly updating databases that tell me everything that is occurring in the universe”. SIA was showing on the monitor all the information on nearby planets, including temperature, population, trading figures and weapon sales. Rogers then turned away from SIA and walked into the room he hadn’t mentioned yet, it was a large circular room with a balcony where Rogers was stood on the balcony when she stepped in. The door closed behind her, “Are you ready for your first test Aura?” shouted Rogers down to her. “This is the Simulator, everything that appears in this room is not real but the dangers are very real so keep your guard up.” All of a sudden he disappeared and all that was around Aura was trees and jungle. A rifle was laid on the ground next to a bush. Rogers was hoping this was all she would need to protect her against anything that the jungle had waiting for her, be it a tiger or a much worse monstrosity.

Rogers watched Aura intensely from the balcony next to Ghost, she was looked confident and ready for her first test. She ignored the rifle given too her "what the hell are you doing?" Rogers said to himself frustrated that she was putting herself in unneeded danger. He was tapping his foot on the ground anxiously as Aura went through the forest, she had kept that confidence from when the simulation had started, she was passing through the trees and bushes with relative ease. She climbed up a large tree, she knew that she had to use all of her senses and not just her eyes in this sort of terrain, this impressed Rogers, she wasn't just some hot headed grunt, she knew how too adapt despite her lack of experience, this must have been why she was recommended to the SSU, but the fact that she left the rifle was ticking him off. But she started too make her own weapon which appeared to be a spear of some sort.

Rogers turned too Ghost, "shes not bad, but shes been dumb as well as smart at the same time." he said as he leaned on the control board in front of him, Ghost replied "Yeah she knows how too get around, should I make it harder?". Rogers just nodded and in turn Ghost selected a fight simulation and sent in two beasts too fight her. Rogers then called out "SIA I don't want her killing her new 'friends' in there seeing as she hasn't gone for the weapon we gave her" SIA replied with "Affirmative sir". One of the monsters sprinted through the forest looking for its prey, hungry for fresh meat. Then it heard a snap of a branch, Rogers winced as Aura had stepped on a weak branch and he knew she wouldn't get her chance to attack first, it saw her up the tree and struck giving her little time to react, but she managed to jump down and stab it with her quickly crafted weapon. "Nice" Rogers said, "shes not just a pretty face, maybe I was wrong." She didn't let up and continued to attack the beast and held it down by the throat getting her weapon back. She was quick on her feet and was acting like a veteran soldier, she noticed something behind her and hit it to the ground. Both beasts stared her down angrily, snarling at Aura. She attacked again and they appeared hurt, but still just as savage as before. Rogers had a intense look in his eyes hoping that she had a plan because these beast wouldn't give up until she was dead. She dived over towards the rifle but SIA warned her not to kill the monsters, Aura obeyed SIA and turned around to the beasts and knocked them out with her spear.

Rogers looked on impressed at his new apprentice and gave a slight smile too Ghost. He walked down from the balcony and into the simulator through a separate door. A pistol appeared in his hand as he walked through the wild forest, then he saw her in the small opening. He whispered through a small headset to Ghost, "wake them up" all of a sudden the beasts slowly got up and stared at her but they were different now, calm but still as intimidating, now maybe even more because of the dead stare. Aura prepared herself, but at the sudden movement they pounced and jumped through the air straight away. Rogers stood up holding his pistol through the bushes and fired two loud shots, both piercing through their heads. The beasts dropped too the ground lifeless. Rogers holstered his weapon and walked into the clearing up too Aura clapping his hands slowly. "Well done, you showed why you were recommended to us, you had all the attributes that you need, brains, agility, strength. But sadly you failed" as he finished talking he aimed his pistol at her head. "I could kill you right now with one movement right now, and you wouldn't even feel it. Take the rifle next time." Then in the next instance the forest disappeared as well as Rogers weapon, they were back in the simulator, he lowered his hand and walked away from the room. As the door opened he stopped, Rogers looked over his shoulder too look at her. He reached into his pocket, and pulled a small object out it was the badge of the SSU, the logo showed the beast in the simulator. "I almost forgot". He threw the badge at her "Catch!".

Rogers just watched Aura as she fought her corner, the passion and fire in her eyes, it was that of a real soldier. As she stormed off, Rogers looked at the badge in his palm as she had placed it there, he had to get her to stay she was different from most people he had trained, but he was angry at the way she showed no regard to his orders, he turned and followed her into the corridor "Hey stay still soldier!" he shouted. She stopped and looked at him. "Do you want to know why I told you to choose the rifle?" he said sternly. He clenched his fist angrily as he thought back to past battles he'd been involved in, "its because that is the only thing that is going to keep you alive out there, you think those beasts are the toughest thing in the galaxy, do you think that a spear is going to kill 100 soldiers charging at you in an open battle field?". He looked into Auras eyes again just watching her. "I will not have you put the lives of my men in danger, I don't care if you take a damn damn sword with you into battle, but you always take a firearm, it gives you another option in battle, I see that you specialize in short range battle any idiot could see that, but you will never survive with that mentality, look at Ghost, he uses a Sniper Rifle and many knives both keep him alive".

He left the badge on a small table next to him, hoping that she would take it and continue in the SSU, Rogers wanted her to stay. There was so much she could achieve, maybe more than himself. "If you change your mind i'll be in my quarters" Rogers just walked away back into the main room of the SSU headquarters and then into his private quarters. His room was like a 5 star hotel, there were TV's, Computers, everything that he would need. He even had his own private link to SIA. There was a large window on the right of the room where he could see thousands maybe even millions of stars, he had a couple of chairs next to the window with a small round table where there was a notepad and pen. Rogers made a small note in it "Discuss next mission with rest of the team". He always made small notes like this, it allowed him to remember everything and he could easily get to the notes. Next to the pad was a photo frame, it had a picture in it, there were two men in it Rogers himself and a second man, the both had an arm over each others shoulders, smiling. Rogers just looked at it "I wish you were still her old friend, you would know what to do with all this stuff with Aura". Rogers just leaned back in his chair looking into the stars, "SIA dim the lights please" he said, "Affirmative sir". The lights slowly dimmed and Rogers just took time to relax and think, "Oh Carl, nothings ever easy is it" he said to himself.

The Sergeant followed Aura out of the room. His presence lingered for a moment before his voice came. Oddly enough, Aura found it comforting. He wasn't kicking her out, that much was obvious, or else he would have already told her to leave. "Do you want to know why I told you to choose the rifle? It's because that is the only thing that is going to keep you alive out there, you think those beasts are the toughest thing in the galaxy, do you think that a spear is going to kill 100 soldiers charging at you in an open battle field? I will not have you put the lives of my men in danger, I don't care if you take a damn damn sword with you into battle, but you always take a firearm, it gives you another option in battle, I see that you specialize in short range battle any idiot could see that, but you will never survive with that mentality, look at Ghost, he uses a Sniper Rifle and many knives both keep him alive."
Aura smirked slightly at the thought of Ghost. It would be marvelous to be taught by him. Sergeant Rogers placed the badge on the table next to him and said, "If you change your mind, I'll be in my quarters." As he walked away, Aura shook her head. He never showed her his quarters. He never showed her her quarters. Her eyes flitted around the room, looking for the bag she had set down earlier. Seeing as it wasn't there, she figured that someone perhaps brought it to the room she'd stay at? Maybe not... Aura took a breath, leaned against the table and picked up the badge. It shined bright, but Aura knew she didn't deserve it. Not yet. She'd prove her worth before she wore it.
Putting it in her pocket, she left the room and walked down the hallway. It felt like a short distance, but Aura knew she probably walked at least a mile. She came upon a dining hall. It was odd-looking, and seemed more like a library than anything. Either way, there were people here. She walked in and caught the eyes of a couple recruits she traveled with. Going and sitting next to them, they asked what happened after they left the room.
Aura wasn't sure what came over her, but she only notified them of little things. "I ended up being partnered with an autocratic son-of-a-bitch who gives a damn." She laughed. "Like a gym coach, except all about the guns." It was the recruit's turn to laugh. "Now I'm just trying to find where my bed will be at."
The recruits looked at each other and back at her, then one said. "I'm not too sure. The rest of us are all together in one room. There isn't a spare bed, though. I'm guessing you'll be closer to your trainer if anything." It was the last thing Aura wanted. "Look it up in the directory."
Aura had another idea in mind. She'd just ask SIA. Smiling, she left the table. "Thanks, guys!" Heading back towards the simulation room, she listened to the partial silence of the station. She entered the room she first met Ghost. She wasn't sure if he was still there. Hardly timid at all, she called out, "SIA, where's my room?"
"Down the hall, take your first left and follow that to the north side of the station. There you will find trainee rooms and high-caste quarters." Aura was half-surprised that it worked.
A little giggly, she headed off at a run, feeling power up and down her legs. She was there in no time at all. In fact, there was a room with her name on it. This surprised her. She saw it before even Sergeant Rogers. She didn't recognize and of the names, actually. Opening the door handle, she stepped in. It wasn't a hotel, but it was pretty darn nice. She headed straight for the bed, wanting to know it was soft enough to lay on. Sure enough, she laid down and drifted off peacefully.

At first, she thought it might be an alarm clock ringing, but then Aura realized, it was a siren. She wasn't completely clueless. Most of the time, sirens were the sign of warning, of danger, of alert. Aura hopped out of the bed, and looked out of the room. Everyone was calm, but rushing. She needed to find Rogers.

Carl sat back in his seat and started to drift off to sleep as Perilous drifted through the stars. He had calmed down from the argument he had with Aura but just wanted to be alone for a while, where he could just collect himself. He thought about calling Aura into his room and discussing some things calmly without any shouting, that was if she was still around. However he felt it might be good for her to have a think to herself and maybe it was good for Carl to have a think himself.

Carl almost fell asleep when all of a sudden the dimmed lights in his room changed to red and were flashing slowly, then there was a loud alarm. It was a category 5 alert, this was serious, they only used this alarm if the ship had been attacked or even worse and invasion of one of the home planets. (Home planets being Earth and other planets colonized by Earth) Carl asked SIA "SIA what is going on SIA?" He was worried, they hadn't had an alert like this in a while, the last time this happened the Perilous was almost ripped in half by a large space pirate ship. "Has Earth been attacked SIA?" he asked. "Negative Sergeant, Earth is safe, the Perilous has been attacked." she replied. Carl became confused, how could the ship have been attacked. They would have detected it earlier and they would have been able to deal with it and if they had been fired on, he would have heard and felt the explosions. "Who has attacked us SIA" he asked. "That is unknown sir, members of the ship have been disappearing and soldiers have been found dead in the corridors, the Admiral has been locked in the Bridge with a large amount of security, he has authorized lethal force and has requested that you come to the Bridge" she said. "Why doesn't ask me over the intercom?" Carl continued to ask. "Communication outlets have been terminated by the attackers" she replied.

Carl rushed into the SSU headquarters and saw his team around the war room. Aura was walking into the room as well. "Aura join us in here." he said. He'd forgotten about their differences for the time being, this was serious, they needed to get work done. "We have been attacked by an unknown force, members of the crew have been disappearing and bodies have been found in the hallways and most rooms, the admiral is safe for the time being but I must get to him in the bridge and explain the situation." Carl explained to the team. Then a rather large man built like a bunker started speaking, he a low voice that matched his frame. It was 'Tank' he was the heavy weapons expert "Sir I saw some people get killed when I was coming from the mess hall, but I didn't see who did it, they just fell to the ground. No gunshots or anything, just bullet woulds and one of them looked like he had been cut with a sword." he said. Carl didn't know what to think, who were these guys, from what Tank said, they were assassins of some sort. "Looks like we have some guys who are experts in stealth, this means we need to be extra vigilant, go in teams of two and try to clear the ship of any hostiles, Ghost I want you to scout the ship and tell me any information on these guys, we will all keep in touch via our private radios, the ships comms are down. Aura your with me. Move out!" he ordered. Almost instantly the rest of the SSU left the room fully armed and ready to fight. Carl looked at Aura, "Looks like you get some real action. Go into the armory and get a weapon, you have hundreds to choose from. Now lets go" Carl said and after he went into the armory and got his rifle. The room was huge, covered with weapons wall to wall, anything you could think of was there, rifles, mini-guns, swords, anything... Carl then went to the main entrance of the SSU headquarters waiting for Aura.
