"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.

As the ship docks most of the techs, mechanics and medical staff leave. Only Commander Elana Selani, Chief Neeha'Shiro, Dr. Valova, Roran, Gemli, and Val remain by the airlock.

Over the Com to Irgol, "I will have my first officer along with a medical team greet you. Sorry standard procedure to check anyone coming onboard. And if you don't mind some of my mechanics would like to take a look at your ship."

Neeha still whispering, "If allowed, you want to join me on the inbound ship?"

Over the com, "All fighters stay alert, long range scans picking up a lot of unknown contacts in FTL. Will keep you advised."

"Of Course. I'd never miss a chance to study another ship." Roran whispered back to Neeha "I might be able to decipher those FTL readings as well. Identify what types of ships they are"

The Krogan nodded and followed, eager for a good fight if they decided to choose the unwise action of being their enemy. As they moved, Blake Harrows came into play. He joined up with the Commander and the others, still a little sore. Gemli was a bit impressed. "I was under the impression you might be too sore to move for a little longer after that sparring session".

"Luckily for me, I anticipated the pain. That said, we are going to have to work on your definition of sparring later" Blake told him, before catching up so he was walking alongside the Commander. "Ready for work, ma'am. That said, we need to talk, either now or later. I made a breakthrough on the Blackfile".

The Blackfile as he called it was his father's datadrive, encrypted so heavily even someone who knew him in great detail would take time in decrypting it. The thing had layers upon layers of encryption, and it required multiple keys in the right order to get through. His father had shared everything he knew about encryption with Blake, including a number of advanced encryption algorythms that sometimes took him days to explain it all in detail.

And this was the first breakthough Blake had gotten so far. Each part of the file used different encryption algorythms and keys, so one solution would not work again.

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...

CDR Elana looked at Blake, speaking softly and some what quietly to him well maintaining her calm professional opperince, "Look kid, your cute, smart and its important. But lets talk about this after we deal with our new guest." at the Krogan, "And Urdnot, be nice to the kid, or me and you will have to spare."

Over the com to all fighters, "Contacts have stopped just out of system. All fighters stay on full alert incase they enter." To Jacoopi and his squad, "Form up on the inbound neutral ship. Protect it, at less till we can deal with it."

"Well Captain for the moment I do not see a need for any of my people enter your ship, we are quite old at this point. Unless trade needs change that. You are more then welcome to send some of your people onto our ship." He talks to his shipmates with the comms muted for a moment. "Alright we are all docked we will have the cargo bay ready for your crew to check out whenever you are ready."

As the comms click off he asks "what do we know about the ships that are on their way here?"

Chief Neeha to Roran, "Lets go take a look at what they have. Who knows what toys they have just laying around." then procceded to board the Salarian ship.

Commander Elana to Blake, "Hey kid lets check out our new friends here first then I will help you with our other project." gave the kid a quick smile, she had grown to like having him around. She unofficially adopted him even if he didn't know it. Turning to Val and Gemli, "You two, come with me. I have a feeling this is going to get interesting." With that she walked onto the other ship.

Dr. Valova nodded to the group and departed towards the med bay.

As Othesat's shuttle leaves, the six Turian Frigates moved to the front of the fleet to form a defensive wall aided by all non-gunship squads. As this happened the Quarian Cruisers fell back behind the dreadnaught and other cruisers. The two Alamo and Geneva Class Frigates moved to cover the rear, while the Berlin Class Cruiser along with the Turian Cruiser move to cover the flanks. With the Turians on the starboard and the Berlin on the port.

As Roran Followed her onto the ship, he looked around "Reminds me of The Neema during the war..." There was much similarities.The walls were falling apart, the crew was in, some what decent condition. "Maybe they need more help then we think..."

"Hey, he is the one that asked" Gemli mentioned. And while it was true that Blake had asked him, Gemli did have another reason. Blake was no expert on psychology, but he was a Krogan and he knew bloodrage. And Blake was raging on the inside. Did Gemli go tough on him? Yes, but other Krogan might go further if they did not reject him. Gemli would make it hard enough for Blake so he did not go looking elsewhere, but would also hold enough back to keep the kid from getting any serious injuries.

The Asari's challange though interested him. "You know that isn't exactly something I wouldn't mind" he mentioned with a smile.

Blake nodded at the Commander's words, and began to work on his Omni Tool. "Alright. Hold on though, let me set up a comm line though. And here..." Blake then deployed a drone. "In case there is hostiles aboard, I can try and hack into any needed systems from here so long as the drone stays alive, so you can focus on other things should it come to that. And please, be safe".

The last part of what he said held a different message though. Please don't make me lose anyone else...

#, as written by Jacoopi
Jacoopi pulled his ship in to formation with his wing to defend the neutral ship. The fact that the other ships stopped outside the system meant either: They were scared and are turning around or they were preparing for what is to come. His ship was not correctly outfitted with a defensive load-out and only had the standard dual Mass accelerator gun, a single torpedo, and a 12-round PKR pod. (Precision Kill Rocket, AKA the same rocket type that shot Garrus in the face in ME2.) By this point in time all outside concerns were gone and his feelings faded from everywhere but his legs. He could feel the machine in him and it felt so unnatural, he could get more natural implants but sadly he could not afford any better ones.

Going down to the cargo hold, he helps direct his crew setting up their booths. he gets around and sits at his chair watching over the whole bay. He stands concerned about the ships on their way here. However they were never more safe then they were with this whole fleet around them. Looking over what they had to offer here, he hoped they would make enough to fix this ship, also information on the relay is it working...can they go home and see their families before they die....

He shakes his head and focuses on what is going on here and now. "Now we wait for our new friends to show up and trade us what we need"

The commander looked at Blake, "Sorry kid but you coming with. And don't worry, I'll have the lieutenant look after you. As for me, I'll be fine. Just an other routine mission. Now come we got work to do." Looking at Gemli and Val, "Lieutenant, I want you glued to the kid, he doesn't make a move without you knowing about it. now everyone on to the ship. The quicker we get this done the better." Without waiting she finishes boarding the trade ship.

Over the coms to Jacoopi's squad, "Listen up. I want all gunships to provide escort for our shuttles. Once the fighting really gets going, I want you to provide close support to what every ship your near. Be careful, gunships aren't the best for this type of fight and we don't have the supplies to replace any. So if it start getting to bad I want you to land and help the crew in what ever way you can. Eagle squad escort shuttle xray-590." (Othesat's shuttle)

As Neeha made her way to the cargo bay, "I hear you. I was on the Shellen during the war. And if they need our help then Im glad to have some one with me. Especally another Quarian, nothing against the others but they just don't understand ships and fleet life like we do." With that she starts looking at the different booths.

"Especialy-" He cut him self off, he didnt want to sound racist in front of someone. "Nevermind...It is nice to have another Quarian with me on the ship. It seems they managed to situate themselves in mechanical positions better then most other creatures during battle. Im sure the only reason the Geth didnt wipe us out when we tried to take back Rannoch, is because there were Quarians like you who actualy understood the diagnostics of an element Zero engine, and knew how to Keep a constant flow and prevent overloads." Roran said as he finished and looked back at her "I have a feeling i just sounded like an Incredible loser..."

"Wh....okay, I am in" Blake said, surprised. This would be his first mission or op or whatever, and he was a bit excited. Still. He could not let it show. He went by the Asari. "I guess we are a team them".

He looked at the ship scans. "Okay, so, if we can avoid using my last name while on the ship, that would be good. Because these are Salarians, which means a good chance of STG. The more information we give them, the more tehy can use it against us, either in a fight, or bargaining with us. Especially if they want information".

Gemli smiled. "Got it Commander. And hey, if they try and take information, I can extract what I can from their brains". He laughed a little at that point. "Dont worry, I wont smash any skulls in. Not without being provoked anyways".

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."

Roran looked at Neeha "Thank you, ive been scanning those signals." Roran looked down at his omni-tools "I think i know-" As he felt the ship become unattached "I knew it. We need to get to Irgol, or this ship will become toast!" He said as he looked up towards the bridge "I hope we can make it in time."

"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.

Two of Jacoopi's rounds find their mark, while an other tracks its target, and the fourth is shot down. The missile fired at him misses but recovers and takes out one of his squad mates.

Two of the Turian Frigates are boarded well a third is taken out by a damaged boarding craft that kamikazed into the frigates engines. One of the two surviving frigates got swarmed and was forced to pull back to the rearguard. Half of the fight fighters and most the boarding craft break off from the fight and head towards the dreadnought. The Alamo and Geneva Class Frigates, being faster, more maneuverable and better suited for anti-fighter, speed into position to add the dreadnought. As the frigates repositioned the York class Cruisers moved as fast as they could straight for the approaching crafts, to act as a wall and to try and scare the boarding craft.

The shuttle at this point starts evasive maneuvers and awaits safe harbor on the injured frigate, since the ship it was heading for the front.

Neeha nods at Roran, "Your right." and heads to Irgol to see what she can do.

Val turns her shields on and flashes her biotics then winks at Blake, "Well then they are in for a surprise if it is."

The commander runs to the bridge to get a better look at whats going on.

Upon arrival at the bridge, he see's Fighters and Boarding Craft heading for them. "We need support so we can make an FTL jump! This ship doesnt have adiquate Armorment to fight them." Roran says as walks up to Irgol "Our only option is escape right now, the fleet wont last long!"

Jacoopi noticed the missile evaded him but slammed into a squad-mate. "We lost one, but the shuttle is still alright," He spoke to command. "All ships on my wing spread out, but don't go too far!" he issued to his wing. His VI opened up on a enemy fighter with twin linked mass accelerator. Jacoopi locked and fired another rocket round, but during this he had been locked while issuing commands and had a missile incoming. His ship boosted right but it wasn't enough to fully evade.

BAM!
The missile crashed into the left side of his shields and almost totaled it.
"Shield status 19%," his VI spoke, "Use caution."
"What do you think I'm using?"
"Error: command not registered."
"Son of a-" Another missile flew over his head and detonated early causing no damage. He spoke to his wing, "I'm hit but my shields are holding up." At that time he dumped extra countermeasures for safety. His ship lit up from the lights on his countermeasures as he maneuvered. At this rate he was gonna run out of countermeasures at some point and be vulnerable to attack.

As everything starts to happen Captain Irgol gets to the bridge of his ship. Hearing what the Captain of the Bailey has to say he starts to bark orders to his crew. As he is doing so he hears Commander Elana talking, he nods to her then goes back to barking out commands to his crew. Though both the ship and her crew are old you would not know it in the way they all moved as one as their captain delivers his orders.
Upon hearing Roran yapping at him "This is my ship, and my bridge you will address me as Captain or I will have you locked in the brig until I change my mind." Irgol was trained to be a military Captain, thus he will not stand for any breach in protocol well he still holds command of his ship. "As a Quarian I figured you would know better. Also as a Quarian, one would think, you would be willing to fight to the last to try and save your fleet. No we will not jump to FTL, not until we have done all we can."
Looking at his crew one last time Irgol takes a deep breath. "Ready main cannons, make ready all missiles, arm mines and counter measures. Our orders are to get to that frigate. She is hurt bad, so we will do what we can to keep her safe as long as possible. If the guns ships buy us enough time then we will dock long enough for the Fleet crew to get off."
Irgol has a way of taking control of a room, even in his twilight years his hands and voice are steady and strong. Tapping the ships intercom "All hands prepare to be boarded. We do not know who we are up agenst or where this attacking fleet came from. But we are Salairins we will not roll over and die, we will fight for our ship and her new friends." With that he turns the com off and a cheer can be heard coming from the rest of the crew as they all get ready for what they know is going to be a long day.
The ship starts making its way to the damaged frigate as quickly as it can. The cargo ship had a few weapons modifications on it, her crew had taken a few parts from their Salairin war ship before they sold it, seeing the gunships in combat the cargo ship opens fire to try and thin the attacking ships out.

Othesat sits in the back of the shuttle, as it starts to evade she is tossed about the back of the ship. As the ship lands on the damaged frigate Othesat slips out of the shuttle, her left arm held up to her body as it may or may not be broken. Using the commotion of the fight, and damage dealt to the ship to make her way to the ships med bay for help.
