Through out every ship, everyone heard a boatswain's whistle call all hands followed by an announcement from Captain Theryrus Siethis. "Now hear this, now hear this! This is Captain Theryrus Siethis of the Dreadnought NES Armando Bailey. Several days ago this fleet was assembled to recolonize the cluster. Everyone was told that the military was just an escort, to help protect the defenseless colonist. Then we were given our real orders, we were to be the government's fist in their new colonize. Your captains and command staff decided that wasn't going to happen. So we banded together and have past through the relay, which has not happened in 15 years. We are now all we have, we have no nation, no home world just this fleet, similar to the Quarian fleet before the war. Now each ship has a representative and their is a new council or admiralty board. That is all." Then a second all hands sounded.

The Quarian captain was standing at parade rest in front of her chair when Roran entered the bridge. She immediately about faced and stood at attention, in a calm authoritative voice, "You found her crewmen. How can I help you?"

Over the loud speaker, "ATTENTION ON DECK!!" Every crewmen, guard, and pilot snapped to attention. A Turian walks out from the starboard door on stage and approached the podium. "Have a seat. I will try and make this quick. For those of you who don't know I'm Captain Theryrus Siethis. 5 years ago the government ramped up rebuilding and outfitting its Navy. A few months back they started recruiting people to try and recolonize the local cluster. Last month we were given our orders, 'Escort civilions to as many habitable planets as possible. If any locals, try and bring them into the fold. Any resistance, from the locals or our civilians, we were to neutralize them through what ever means necessary.' In other words we were to come as conquerors and occupy worlds after we fought to free them. So the captains and our command staff decided enough was enough, and made a break for the relay. For now, till a long term government is put in place the captains shall lead the fleet. Now I would ask that if you do not want to join a ships crew, remain in the civilian parts of your ship or move to one of the quarian ships. Any questains please feel free to as any of our guards, your department head, or the ships AI. Here on the Bailey, the AI you need to know is Enola. With me are Fighter Commander Dakira Gar'nakk, chief medical officer doctor Valova, chief engineer Chief Neeha'Shiro vas Armando Bailey nar Rayya, and Geth-Unit-216s aka Enigma." As he said their names they stood up and waved then sat back down. "As far as the heightened security, we will remain at this level for the next few days till we straighten a few things out. Ok, if you want to join the crew please meet with one of my officers. Crew feel free to talk freely with your officers well their here, just be nice and once they leave this room they are back on duty. ATTENTION!! DISMISSED!!" The captain left back through the starboard side door. Once he was gone the other officers spread out, Neeha walks down near the holo projector with Enigma, Dakira stayed at his seat and Valova walked to the podium.

"Sometimes i swear he gives the same speech..." Roran said to the Quarian Officer with a slight Chuckle

Roran Wondered about the crew. It was so different the Quarian Culture Crews, outside species, Possible Contaniments, Disobediant crew members, and, being a quarian, He knew there was a Drell Assassin somewhere on the ship! But, ah well, if he was stuck here then he might as well help. Maybe he'll work with A sexy Quarian officer....Or a animatronic geth because apparently there in abundance here.... Earth shouldve have studied Quarian history because, even though Shepard Cured them, They still are a threat if they start asking more Questions.

"What can i do to help out. If it involves Mechanics, i can fix it." Roran said Reassuringly.

Over the com, "This is Captain Theryrus Siethis, formerly of the Turian Hierarchy. It is good to hear from a the Salarian Union, even if it is from a former officer. Please proceed to these coordinates. Do you require assistance of any kind?" With that the captain sent coordinates for the portside airlock along with docking procedures.

At this time Commander Elana Selani walked into the Main Hall. "Krogan, you are from clan Urdnot? Your with me. Sister Asari..." nodded at Valarirae, "Lieutenant, on me." Then she left the room and headed to the airlock. Upon arrival at the airlock the crew snapped to attention, "As you were. Techs, mechanics bow side, medical stern side. Security both sides. The two of you flanking behind me." Without a moments pause the crew moved as ordered.

Neeha nudged Roran, at a whisper "Come on for now you can standby me as part of my team. At less till we can get you officially assigned some were. By the way I've been looking over your file. Looks good. You were on the fleet to help fix weapons, but your good at fixing many things. Were would you like to be placed?"

"Good to see a friendly face Captain. We are ok at the moment, we were hopping to see if we couldn't work out some kind of trade. We have lots to offer, and by the look of your ships you might be in need of a resupply. We have information about what to get where and who is friendly and who is not." Irgol nods telling the helm to take them to the coordinates.

To Jacoopi flying was always a good way to calm himself from outside thoughts.

Taking slow deep breaths and adjusting his grip on the joystick, he said to himself, "All that matters now is the mission at hand, and of course, staying alive." For now he calmed himself and flew in formation with the other pilots. He eyed the neutral ship on first glance it seemed that the ship was in really poor condition, but on closer examination it was not severely damaged anywhere in particular. The only external problems he could see was dents in the hull along with some of the paint chipping. He returned to himself and wondered how he could deal with the problem with Othesat, he just could not think of a good way to help him and her.

Comms told him about the contacts in FTL. At first he was excited for the action but usually when a Captain/Commander says a lot that means about equal numbers or more. If there were that many, he was in for the fight of his life...

Val nodded at the commander then turned to Blake, "I guess so little one. You ready to play. And don't worry kid I wont let you get hurt... to much."

Neeha tries to hold back a laugh, "No, not a completely. And thank you, but we couldn't have done it alone, we needed people like you to help us." Stopping at a few booths, when ever she sees something she wants she adds it to a list on her omi-tool.

Just then the commander gets a video message on her omi-tool from the captain, "Commander, the enemy around 60 fighters has moved into system and are closing fast. Looks like they're leading about 50 boarding craft. That ship your on is to vanrable get it out of her and to the rearguad. Im sending our gunships to escort you. Activating emergency override to unhook you from the Bailey. Once their safe get back here on the double. Over and out." With that the Salarin ship unhooks and is genteelly pushed off. Elana runs up to the Irgol, "Captain move us to these coordinates and dock with the frigate. That way we can off load our people then we can get you and you crew out of here."

Jacoopi's sensors pickup the fighters in a wide 'V' formation and as soon as they are in range of the fleets fighters and frigates they open fire. Over the coms from Commander Dakira, "Gunships get that ship safely to the rear."

"Roger." Jacoopi responded to the alert by reaching behind his seat with his left hand and grabbing his helmet then put it on. He flexed his neck just to make sure it fit him well. His ship was to the left of the shuttle which was in between the attackers and the shuttle.

"Everyone on my wing, keep the shuttle alive, that is primary." Jacoopi turned his ship about 85 degrees to the left to face the approaching hostile fighters. As they came within firing range he multi-locked on to 4 different targets and fired 4 anti-fighter PKR rounds. He himself was locked on to by another enemy ship, to evade the missile he boosted his ship upward and to left while deploying his normal countermeasures along with some brand new ECMs. (Electronic Countermeasures.) Before he forgot he set his dual mass accelerator to be controlled by his ships VI and automatically engage targets. He hoped the countermeasures would also protect the shuttle and also the neutral ship from any incoming missiles.

Blake nodded. "Lets just hope whatever issue this ship has does not include a leaky fuel tank near a source of fire" he mentioned.

As the various messages and what not went off, Blake monitored the situation. Mostly, it was just crosschecking and formations at this point. He noticed that, according to a group of reports, a few specific fighters were headed straight for them.

"So" Blake mentioned as he turned towards Val, and employed his kinetic barriers. "Anyone else think this might be one big trap? Mysterious ship to lure us in combined with a sudden enemy appearance?"

"Nah, I just think its our luck" Gemli mentioned. "Everyone knows the goodguys always have the worst of luck".

Blake wondered if he had a red cape hidden somewhere.

Kearan sat in the dark and the dank of the ruined ship, his eyes sunken and dark, his skin an unhealthy grey colour from malnutrition, his mind flitting in and out of conciousness in the dark of the ship. He was the last, the last one left, out of a crew of 800, he was the only one left standing. Or sitting rather. Then again, there had certainly been less crew alive on the ship when this whole mess began. Only about 250 crew members survived the crippling of the pirate ship Anubis, and it was of those surviving few that Kearan was the last of. Power had been simple, the reactor was still functional, it was just the engines that had been trashed by the Cerberus cruiser, not that they hadn't given as good as they got. Life support was functional on those decks not blown open into the vacuum of space, and although initially to conserve power they had switched off the artificial gravity, as their numbers dwindled, it was switched back on. Nobody expected to survive the ordeal, and it was at least nice to have your feet on the ground, and not have shit gliding through the air. The few Salarians on board were the first to go, their hyper metabolisms succumbing to the strict food rationing set in place. They were bagged and ejected out the airlock. That decision was soon regretted. Food supplies ran out quickly even with tight rationing, and it wasn't long before starvation and hunger took their natural course. What little Command structure was left on the ship quickly broke down as the crew began to split into warring factions. Most of the humans did no fare well in the ensuing conflict. Assaulted by a combined force of the Batarians and Krogan, they were decimated and most scrambled into hiding, Kearan amongst them. The Quarians were the next to go, their life suits giving them a unique advantage in the area, but lacking medical and technical supplies meant that even small wounds laid them low. They also refused to do what the other parties accepted. Eating the dead. With food rations all but non-existent at this point, the Krogan/Batarian alliance and the Asari/Turian group began to attack one another over not just space and control, but in order to gather food. Kearan was not exempt from the situation, unlike others, he simply adapted early. Stray turian scouts and batarian hunters met their end on the tip of Kearans combat knife, their bodies dragged away to the dark corners of the ship Kearan survived in. What remaining human crew were left he soon hunted down. Easier targets than the powerful krogan or biotic Asari. As the two opposing sides ground themselves down and dwindled in numbers, even the fractious alliances began to erode, and soon it became every man for himself. Eventually, it became just one man and himself. Kearan killed them. Every last one, kept their corpses cold in the medical bay, rationing himself. That was when the real struggle began. It had been different knowing that there were at least other living beings on the ship, but being the only living soul for thousands of lightyears was... straining for the mind. Soon the voices came, tormenting him for the crimes he had committed to stay alive, in time, eve they left him. All that remained was the silence, and it had been silent for a long time.

Kearan had run out of "food" over a fortnight ago.

He didn't think he would last much longer, the pain in his stomach had left, but now it was gone, he almost missed it.

He had sat in silence for so long, that the hiss of an opening airlock was so alien he almost didn't notice it. Had he missed someone? Was there another survivor who had eluded him? No, no surely not... Who...

He tried to stand but his legs failed him and he slumped back down to the floor. He tried to cry out, but his voice wouldn't come, all that came was a hoarse whisper. They wouldn't find him, he was in his hiding place, the place he had used to elude the rest of the crew in the early days of the wreck. They would come through, scavenge, and leave. He would die here. Alone in the dark, with not even the voices to keep him company...

The gun.

He wasnt even sure where the thought came from, or if it was even him that thought it, but it was right. His hand slipped down to the pistol at his hip. Carnifex model with extended barrel and ultralight materials. He was glad for the lightness as he struggled to raise the weapon away from his body. He squeezed, the trigger depressing with a slight click just before the mass effect accelerator blasted the bullet down the hall, ricocheting around the hall with a deafing rattle and ping of noise, echoing throughout the hollow ship, But Kearan heard nothing, his mind having already succumbed to darkness.

"Yes...Captain." he said as he curled his hand into a fist, trying not to turn on the captain "What can we do to help? I can calibrate weapons, but im not exactly the best aim. I wont be effective to help fend of our intruders. Well, unless its deck guns, or modifications to make them deadlier. Sir." he said after the captain finished his speech and his head followed him as he paced around

Although he silently doubted the captains commands in his head. He lived on a freighter that was on the brink of overload, with a bunch of old salarians that for he knows, could have cabin fever... "Were all dead..." he very silently whispered to himself.

Over every com channel, with a Japanese accent "This is Admiral Katsumoto Yamamo to the Bailey and her fleet. I call you now as a courtesy from one worrier to an other. You are in possession of an item of great importance, stand down, turn it and its carrier over to us or be destroyed. If you hand it over we will leave you alone, do the honorable thing and live to fight an other day. We will withdraw for one hour, any ship that tries to flee will be destroyed for being cowards. I Await your response. Endurance out." With that every attacking ship disengages and jump into FTL.

Captain Siethis to all ships. "ALL HANDS! NOW HEAR THIS! ALL HANDS NOW HEAR THIS! All small craft find harbor. Begin fleet wide repairs if need be scuttle the ship. All away teams your on your own find shelter and hunker down. Frigates and cruisers to the rear. I will hold the Bailey here, everyone give us a wide berth and for no reason approach us. No matter what happens its been an honor to serve with you all." On board the Baily, the captain looks at a report, most boarders have been repelled on the baily.

Fleet started with status change
2 York class Cruisers 1 boarded
1 Berlin Class Cruiser badly damaged
1 Turian Cruiser no power or coms
4 Quarian Cruisers no fighters or shuttles left
6 Turian Frigates 1 boarded (has the away team on it for now), 4 destroyed
2 Alamo Class Frigates all lost
2 Geneva Class Frigates 1 badly damaged

As the remaining ships that can, move to the rear of the fleet, the captain, "Baily what do we have on the Endurance and this Admiral?" A holo image of Baily appears next to the captain. "Sir. All we have is a mention that he is a fleet Admiral currently attached to the Special Projects division, and who has never lost a fight since the rank of captain, nor has he back down from a fight regardless of the odds. As far as the Endurance goes there is a romor it was to be the biggest carrier ever built, not just having a larger capacity but have the fire power of a dreadnaught. Sorry sir but that's all I have."

As Baily gives his report Blake's datadrive gives off a low beep.

Commander Selani turns to Roran, "Back to the ship." Turning to Irgol, "With respect, lets head to the unknown contact and holdup there, if there are any other teams out or survivors looking for shelter they might head there."

Pain...

Jacoopi removed himself from the stun of the impact, he realized the situation. His ship; on fire. Himself; bleeding out.

First thing was first, using his right hand he reached over to the red EXTINGUISH button. The canister spray cooling foam onto his engine which now was only leaving a trail of smoke. His stabilizer engines were destroyed, and thus his ship was spinning wildly on a horizontal axis. He'd have to grab manual control of the ship's RCS control to stop the spinning. He flipped a switch to control the RCS and pushed it against the direction which he was spinning.

Jacoopi's vision started to darken and then lit back to normal, his blue blood was freely flowing down his left hand and down his torso. The shard in his hand hurt the most so he grabbed it and yanked hard. The piece slid out, his hand started to bleed even more and he dropped the piece to the cockpit floor with a Pong.

He realized his ship was slowly drifting towards the abandoned frigate, but he did not worry about it now. Only small pieces of the transmission came through to his comms but he heard enough to know they had lost for the time being. The shoulder piece of shrapnel now was to be removed with a tug of his right hand. That too he let go of and it fell with a Ping.

He tried to reach for the one in his robotic leg but he was limited by the large disc in his torso. His vision started to fade again, this time darker but still came back. The smoke was still present in his cockpit but was not enough to overwhelm his oxygen scrubber and cause him to suffocate. He faded again, but this time when the lights returned, rather than looking at the void of space he was staring at the quickly closing frigate which he had seen earlier.

In the blink of an eye his own autopilot kicked into gear. His right hand slid back his throttle into a reverse so he could lose speed while his left hit the landing gear button which only 2 of the 3 had lowered because one had been jammed. Most fortunately for him, the hangar bay door was open, it was a tight fit but as soon as the frigates gravity took hold of his ship he turned his entire ship off and it slammed onto the metal floor and skidded into a medium sized stack of crates. The extremely loud metal-on-metal screeching would have startled anyone in the immediate vicinity. He managed to pop his cockpit open to let the smoke out. Before he could disembark the lights faded once again and he finally succumbed to the pain and lost consciousness laying in his ship with the large disc embedded in his torso, the flake of metal in his leg, and his own blood had pooled onto the floor.

Life was holding onto him by a broken joystick.

Val was taken back by the message but managed to pull herself back when she heard Blake speak up. "Kid calm down, we're going to be ok. The captain did what he had to do. Now get on that control panel and tell me what we got. Can the ship move and what systems do we have. Krogan check the weapons systems then guard the door. We don't need anyone getting us in the back." She commanded as her training kicked in. Carefully she removed the captain from the chair laying him on the ground face up. Seating in the command chair she started to try and gain control, which to her surprise was rather easy, the captain never locked the system out.



As the Doc and her team approached their shuttle the pilot calls out to them, "Hey some things up. The ship is coming back online. Life signs have moved to the bridge and engineering. Scans read that the engine room is unstable and any one in there is at high risk, recommend you move there immediately. Also been trying to reach you looks like when who ever started the core started a disruption field limits coms. Got a one way message from the rest of the fleet." The pilot plays the message he recorded. "Captain we just lost the Salarian ship. We also cant raise anyone who landed on the unknown ship." "Sir the enemy, their launching an other wave." "All ships that can have moved off and are heading toward the relay. We still have the two York class and one Turian cruiser that were unable to leave. The Turian ship has minimal power at best." Orders Sir" Captain Theryrus in a very angry determined voice, "FOR THE HOMEWORLDS!!" Then the comms go dead. A look at the scanners reveals a massive fight between the Bailey, her few sister ships and large wave of fighters and bombers. The shuttle pilot, "Ma'am I cant raise anyone any were, and I don't know were to go or what to do."
