(Sorry if I missed a tag. I tagged as many people as I could tell was on the boarding team)

"I would recommend helmets on, in case there is no atmo on the ship, or it gets vented on us" Blake told them, securing his helmet. He then walked forward, looking around. Blake used his omni-tool to scan the room, as well as various ship systems and for life signs.

"Looks like a trap, smells like a trap..." Blake mentioned, as Gemli raised a weapon. Blake looked towards Val. "Just curious. How difficult was it to get this hanger door open? And why are these no other craft here?"

"Anything else interesting?"

"Yeah...the ship has a lot of Anti-Fighter weaponry. And it just went online! Val, we need to get to the Weapons systems pronto!" he mentioned as he went to a locked door. "Just let me hack this..."

"No time!" Gemli said, as he used his natural Krogan Strength to force the doors open manually. Suddenly, various automated defense systems also went online. Gemli started shooting drones and turrets as they poped up. "Go! I will cover you both!"

#, as written by zeph_gm
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.

As his ship comes up beside the badly damaged Frigate Captain Irgol smirks at Roran. "Get your people together little Quarian. You are going to help get that Frigate back up and running. That is how you are going to help. My ship does not have the weapon power to do much of anything, but with that by our side we might just live...or run, if I am not mistaken her engines are much better then ours." As his ship docs with the frigate he points to a few Salairians and tells them to get some others onto the frigate to help get her space worth. Looking to his first officer "Keep them off us as long as you can, then get out of here. We will meet at our fall back point. The ship is yours Commander." With that he leads Roran and the other fleet people towards the frigate.

As they get to the air lock "We might be old Salarians but we still have some fight left in us. And remember your fleet is out there too, and every part of it is a much richer prize then this old clunker." As he says this he moves onto the Frigate, weapons ready just in case.

As the Salarians board the frigate they are meet by a hurt Vorcha guard leaning against the opposite wall. "Turn back. Ship broken, engines broken, most crew dead, no hope. Engines not ours, all going to die." Just then Volus tech emerged from a maintenance hatch, "We were boarded some how and they waited till we fell back to strike. They took what was left of engineering. With so much damage the crew is having a problem keeping the ship together and trying to retake engineering isn't going well. I recommend you if you have men to spare great other wise leave now. We picked up a ship in need, cant tell which frigate it is but it is better off then we are. Help them we got our ship." With that the Volus reenters the hatch, and the Vorcha starts down the whats left of the hall towards engineering.

Commander Elana and chief Neeha followed the Salarians.

As Gemli takes out drones, a Geth runs into the room well typing on its omi-tool, and yells out, "Hold your fire! The system activated when you landed with out authorization. One moment." just as he finishes deactivating the system four shot come through the door hitting the geth in the back. As it falls to the ground it yells out. "RUN! WAVE OFF! SHIP LOST!" It types a few things in to its Omni-tool and as it hits the last button it lays flat on the deck, motionless and its light slowly fades out. A second later everyone there receives coordinates of what looks like a powered down frigate.

Val runs you to Blake and Gemli, activating her Biotic Protector to cover the three of them. "Fall back, we are not here to retake her. That geth sent us coordinates of an other ship. I would rather try and help the other ship then try and clear this entire ship with just the three of us. Now fall back to the shuttle." She covers Blake regardless of what his next move is.

Jacoopi picks up a faint signal coming in slowly from off the fleets six o'clock. His ships VI reads it as a frigate class ship that's gone dark.

Othesat makes it to the med bay to a find a horrific scene. Crew laying all over the place in mixed conditions, with medics running from person to person in an attempt to help everyone they can. One of the human medics walks over to her, "Let me take a look... Ok... you seem fine nothing critical. You can stay and help or report back to your station." With a nod he ran off to help a hurt Turian with third degree burns all over his body.

(OOC: The gone dark ship is Kearan's ship which is on the six of the fleet/Jacoopi. They were boarding a damaged frigate in OUR fleet. Not Kearan's. The people going onto the damaged frigate [not Kearan's] are trying to retake it I believe.
Location recap:
Jacoopi-his fighter-near salarian frigate
Othesat-on Salarian frigate
Roran/Irgol-on damaged frigate
Kearan-his little empty ship in rear
Gemli/Blake/Val- I do not know, either on Salarian frigate or damaged one...)

Having been all but ignored by the medics Othesat moves to a desk and sits, trying to wrap her head around what is going on. Dieing due to a ship failure or an attack from another ship where she can do nothing is one of her biggest fears. Well sitting at the desk in the med-bay she leans on the com button and hears the conversation about the drifting ship...thinking that might be a safer adventure. Moving back to the shuttle bay, she does not have to sneak much as everyone is running around with all the troubles. Finding an empty shuttle, after bribing one of the deck officers to open the bay doors, she hopes into the shuttle and flies it to the coordinates given to the other group.

Upon landing on the dark ship, she searches for a light on the ship. Once she has found one she starts to explore the ship. A flashlight in one hand and her Scirpion in the other hand.

After hearing the vorcha and the Volus' message Roran was very reluctant to delve further into the ship. "This Frigate...i dont think we should....i mean..." He was very nervous that a wall would open up or something would jump up at him "This ship isnt savable. We have to get out before were fried! The only way to save these people would be to convince them to get back onto your ship Captain Irgol." Roran said as he looked down the hatch the volus had climbed into.

He heard his Omni Tool beep slightly. "Oh what now..." he said as he raised it up to his mask. "We have heavier units inbound from FTL. This ship is lost if they land a Round on us, in this condition. Orders?" Roran looked Irgol

"Alright, fine!" Blake mentioned as he started to fall back. Gemli went over to Val however.

"I don't mean to be disrespectful or disobey orders, but perhaps the guy with natural plate armor should be the one who covers our escape, since I can risk going out of cover and not dying from the first shot that penetrates my shields!" he mentioned as he maximized his tech armor. "You Asari are a bit too squishy to do that!"

As Blake re-entered the hanger, a rogue missile apparently hit the side of the hull they were at. This caused significant damage, including causing a bit of damage to the shuttle as well, as it shorted out when it tried to turn on its engines. "Son of a bitch. Now what are we supposed to do? We need to get back to the ship! I mean, our ship is literally right over there. Hell, you could throw someone across".

Gemli looked back at Blake. "You know, you are a genius. Thats a great idea right there".

Blake had a bad feeling Gemli was not kidding. "Gemli. Urdnot Gemli. Don't you get any ideas now! No! You stay back!"

"I don't hear a better idea, and I can throw you with enough force to get you over there in twenty seconds" Gemli said smiling.

Val, Gemli, and Blake's shuttle pilot over the com, "This is shuttle pilot to boarding team. The shuttle has taken some damage but she is still good to go, but we need to leave now!"

Val looked at Gemli, "With respect, you are better suited for going through wreckage then I am. A gap in the floor or debris in the way, expressly getting Blake through it. I'll hold the door till your both on board then I'll be right behind you." Well keeping her biotic field blocking the door, she activates her shields and turns on her helmet com to an open channel. "Shuttle craft this is LT Valarirae Saburo. Be ready to go as soon as Urdnot Gemli, and Blake are on board, I will be right behind them."

The shuttle pilot, "Roger that ma'am... ma'am?... Roger that." He starts the engines and opens the shuttle door.

"LT Jaccopi, its ENS Laren. I've taken over as your wingman. Recommend we fall back to a minamum safe distance, preferably a place we can land. I'm running low on munition and not sure how mush longer we can hold. Our gunships weren't designed for sistande combat against these many fighter sir, over."

Click! There it was, he was out of solid countermeasures. Only his electric countermeasures remained, which are technically unlimited.

"Zero countermeasures remain, recommend rearming," his VI chirped in annoyingly. Jacoopi was starting to get pissed, but he tucked it all away from the situation. He was informed by his VI of the silent ship on his and the fleet's six. He glanced back to his right to get a quick glance at the ship. He only made out the ship's shape and distance before the Ensign could read out to him.

"Roger, I hear you ENS." He opened up comms to his wing. "All fighter craft on my wing, RTB to rearm and refuel. If you can't land on the NES find a cruiser with a hangar, wing lead out." Jacoopi said this with a firm and quick tone.

His ship's lock-on indicator started blaring, a missile was headed for him. The ECM distorted it off track while his evasive maneuvering got out of the missiles path. While he evaded the attacker lined up his/her main guns on Jacoopi's already weak ship from the left.

He heard his shields fizzle out before he or his VI could react. Thunk. Thump. Two large fighter slugs found their mark in his ship. One shot landed in front and below the cockpit, the other below his left stabilizer engine. The engine started to stutter and leak cooling fluids. The cockpit shot caused an panel to explode along Jacoopi's body, which had he not been wearing his armor would have probably killed him and caused smoke to gather in the cockpit. He was hit with 5 pieces of shrapnel, the first had hit his helmet and ricocheted off only leaving a small dent. The second was a circular like piece that impaled into the side his left shoulder pad which did not penetrate deep enough to harm him but did limit his circle of motion with that arm. The third stuck into his right cybernetic leg guard with no effect. The fourth was a fairly large chunk of metal impaled deep enough in his chest to make him bleed around it, but due to his armor slowed it down enough to stop it from shattering his ribcage. The fifth was small sharp pole which in a sense, nailed through his left hand to his joystick and busted some of the joystick controls. All this at once knocked him around his cockpit and stunned him and out of breath as smoke gathered around him.

Othesat gets into the shuttle, finding a random pilot sitting in it rather then doing anything else to try and save the ship or help the crew...she uses one of her tranquil darts and knocks him out after he notices her. Dragging the man out of the ship and leaving him on the hanger bay floor she steals the ship and flys to the ship as she had planed to do before...As she flys she watches the battle that is happening. Dread fills her body as she thinks about getting blown up as she makes for the dark ship.

Her landing on the ship is a little rough, but clean. After checking that the ship has air she gets out, her Scorp drawn and at the ready. Blending into the dark as a good assassin does, she moves from the shuttle to the control panel in the shuttle bay. There is very little power on this ship but she manages to get the shuttle pay shields to turn on so the doors can stay open for anyone else looking for a safe place to land.

After this is done she starts to search the ship looking for the med pay and pain meds...

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."

"Yes Commander." Roran said as he turned and ran back to the ship. "This is chaos!" he muttered to himself. "Weve been given orders to go find shelter, but we have no Regroup location. We have a massive ship headed our way. Ive met humans, they never retreat from a battle or let there enemies go without firing a few shots at them..." Roran continued complaining until he was in the ship, among a few other Salarians.

"Bah....So much for assisting the Human Rebbellion..." he said as he looked around before seating himself at a gunners chair. "Wow is this old..." he said as he looked through the Firing Screen "This must be Pre-contact War..." he said as he chuckled. He quickly removed his hands "This needs calibrating. Dont want to put a hole in the ship now do i..." He said as raised up his omni-tool and linked it to the gun to begin Calibrating.

As they were heading back, Blake could not help but notice the blinking light and the beep. He opened it as he listened to the message from the Admiral. And once he was done, fear suddenly entered his eyes. He played the message for Val and Gemli as well, so they knew how urgent it was. "Val! I need to get to the Commander now!"

He tried hailing the Commander, but moved quickly enough he reached her first. "Do not trust him! A part of the drive just unlocked, a message from my father. See for yourself..."

He sent the message to the Commander now. "Son... if your reading this without me then one of two things has happened. First, you 'found' this drive in my safe. or I am no longer with you and for that I am sorry. If it is true that I am no longer there then I leave you with my friends Elana Selani and Valarirae Saburo, they will look after you. Knowing Elana she has not told anyone including Val who you are or why you are so important to her. Also if your looking into Admiral Katsumoto Yamamo, he is the fleet Admiral of my Terminus Systems defense and security fleet. Chances are that you took the dive through a relay and now facing his fleet. He knows of you but will be after this drive, its designed to send a signal should it pass through a relay without prior authorization. With the network in disarray I could not send to codes but they are buried in this drive. Katsumoto will do anything to protect our sites through out the Terminus Systems and to get this drive, but attached to this note is a code to grant you my level clearance. DO NOT LET HIM OR ANYONE ELSE OUT THERE GET THIS DRIVE. You can trust my two friends but no one else from the SPD.I love you son and am very proud of you. Keep up the good work and stay safe. -Dad"

"Do not trust him!" Blake mentioned. "We need to get out of here now, make a dash for the Mass Relay or somewhere safe! We need to move now!"

Blake was aware he was essentially giving the commander an order, but frankly given the importance of the message he figured at the very least they could discuss that issue later. If it was an issue, technically his father just promoted Blake, at least elevating his clearance level.

Gemli was more or less half confused, half angry, and half protective right now. It occurred to his intelligent Krogan mind three halves makes no sense, but he could think about semantics later. Right now, he just had this overwhelming desire to punch the admiral and protect Blake, Val, and the Commander.

At least he knew Blake trusted him. That made him also feel half happy with himself.

Irgol looks around, then hits the ships com "I have a ship leaving now. If you can escape to her now. You have 5 minutes." He thens puts their location on the computer for anyone who is looking.

"Back onto the ship we give them 5 minutes and then as you said, we head for the other ship. This same crew will board that ship, along with anyone from this crew that joins us."

With that he heads back to his ship to update the crew to their new plan.

#, as written by Jacoopi
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.

The turian leads the Doctor to a shuttle in the main hanger just as a fire brakes out. Lt. Natasha starts directing the damage control teams as the turian loads the Dr. onto the shuttle. The shuttle quickly takes off, making the turian who had no time to sit fall out. Part of the celling collaped, killing the turian, as the pilot closes the doors and flies out of the hanger as fast as possible. The shuttle makes a quick landing in a hole in the unknown frigates hull.

The Salarian ship makes its way to one of the few docking ports thats still working. As the commander orders Roran and Neeha off the ship, a damaged escape pod collides with the Salarian ship. The impact renders the bridge crew including Irgol unconscious and damages the docking tube. Neeha grabbed Roran and ran into the frigate incase the tube depressurizes. The commander ran to the bridge grabbing Irgol and carring him to the docking tube. Once there she could see that the tube was going to break at any moment and that she couldn't make it well carring him so she used her biotic push to throw him. Just in time for the tube to break, and due to age and damage the Salarain ship couldn't seal the door so she was spaced along with most of the surviving Salarian crew. Luckly Neeha was standing by to seal the door on her end with a tech override and some juice from her suit.

As Gemli throw Blake into the shuttle Val turns and carfuly uses her shockwave to push Gemli into the shuttle. Thankfully the co-pilot had grabbed his sidearm and was waiting by the door. So when Blake was thrown he was there to catch him and get him out of the way, as Gemli lands on his stomach on the floor of the shuttle. sortly there after before Gemli can more Val uses her biotic charge to bridge the gap and uses him as a landing pad. Once she pulls herself off of him she yells to the pilot, "Ok We're on let go." With that order the co-pilot jumps to his seat closing the door and launches the shuttle. They make their way to the frigate in time to see the commander get spaced. The pilot goes to bring them in for a landing in the hanger but notices the wreck of a fighter, but due to the damage cant pull away and instead aims the nose away and crashes into the wall. Both pilots are killed on impact and the shuttle is beyond repair as it is half in the interior wall of the hanger.

Roran had heard Irgol's plan to return to the damaged frigate. Of course it would be the one he didnt want to be in, with his luck, anything could happen.

He watched as the shuttle from the bailey Docked with the frigate through the gun visor and Irgol docked with the damaged frigate. As it docked the entire salarian frigate was rocked and Roran was thrown out of his seat. "Woa! Are they still shooting at us?" he said as he stood up, But before he could regain his foothold Neeha took him and they ran across the boarding tube that was most definantly going to implode.

And to make it better he got to watch Commander Elana and the Salarian Crew get spaced as Neeha sealed the door. Roran sat down and sighed. then looked up at Neeha and murmmered "What the hell just happened?"

Neeha was frozen hand still in a fist on the button staring at the now sealed hatch. After a few minutes she slowly dropped to her knees, in a sad and hopeless voice, "Not again. Ancestors forgive me." She slowly looks up at Roran, even through her mask he can feel the pain and hopelessness. "The... war... the fleet... Keelah. We're all dead... again." As flashbacks of the battle of Rannoch, and the battle for Earth flash through her head.

"We are NEVER doing that again!" Blake yelled as they got out. "EVER".

"I thought it was fun" Gemli mentioned.

"You think anything that explodes is fun" Blake mentioned with a slight smile. Then he turned to Val. "We need to go, immediately. Where is the Commander?"

"No time!" Gemli mentioned, as he ran towards the bridge. Blake called the bridge in advance, warning Gemli was about to yell and that they needed to get out of here ASAP.

The message disturbed him greatly. So did the silence from the commander. He started calling around, knowing if anyone knew where she was.

The Docs pilot calls back to her, "Ma'am I'm not sure how good these reading are but Im picking up a downed gunship in the hanger with inconsistent life signs. There is also a faint reading of resent gun fire from a corridor between us and what's left of the bridge. Possible faint life sign in that same area. Also got three life signs moving on the bridge with two more near the remains of a docking port. I'm gona stay here and try to coordinate with the incoming shuttles since I cant raise dock officer Heal or anyone on the Bailey."

Val tried to reach the commander on all channels well following Blake to the bridge. "Cant reach her. She'll be fine. She knows how to handle herself and I'm sure she will call when she can." Inside she felt that some thing bad had happened but kept a positive out ward appearance.

Blakes call to the bridge goes through but there is no response.
