Commander Argus Brighton had trailed the small group like a lost puppy, or a brass hounddog, and it might've been contributed to the copacetic view that he'd been given upon following them. The woman, primarily. Seraph Tymas. After she had issued her ten minute warning, he had decided to make his presence known in the most arrogant of ways. Beaming a smile not concealed by his armor and harboring an expression that made him almost punchable, Brighton had placed his hand on Kirkwood's shoulder, in an art of reassurance that he had mastered over the years.

"Don't let th' scaary black-heired raveness fool you, kid. Lady just likes t'bust the newbies balls. Don't get too ahead'a yourself though, I have seen Stevens sittin' a little funny as'a recent." He bantered, smiling toward Sera.

"Present an' briefed, missas. Though for some reason, I doubt you're keen on takin' off without me." He seemed to try and play up his status, before his closed-lip smile had sprouted into a grin. "You just like me too much!"

Brighton's hand seemed to find it's way to his temple, where he had pressed on the two circular dots that were present there. It seemed to be some sort of implant, accentuated when he had began talking as if the man were on the phone. With it, his eyes trailed away and he turned around. "Lieutenant Castor, y'boarded the ship already?" He had asked, broadcasting his message through the CB radio.

And Brighton's accent was undeniably Australian, and slightly nasally, and it became pretty obvious when he had addressed Seraph once again. "Well, love, when y'put it like that, how am I not gonna like y'either?" He had retorted, a coy smile laden on his face. He, too, appreciated the informality of the ship. Though, he wasn't so sure about Castor, who had soon addressed him as well. "Preened and ready to go, Lieutenant Castor." It seemed that Brighton had adopted a far more formal tone with Castor, though that still wasn't saying much.

"We're off." The Commander had spoke again, as he rose his hand to meet the implants on his temple. "Any'a you get motion sick on me and you'll have to fish the toothbrush out your ass before you start scrubbin' the deck withit. Know where the lavatories are." It was hard to tell whether the man had been all too serious about it or not. His armor was clean and compact, and it was certainly something he took pride in.

Regardless, he had reciprocated Seraph's salute, and saw her off. As she had taken toward the cockpit, he had taken toward the hallways terminal which she occupied beforehand. He was going to brief himself on the mission as much as possible.

But it was short-lived, before he had forced himself away from the computer, and made his way toward the ship terminal. A nod had been given toward Castor as he took off in that direction; the lazy man's version of a salute. In a moment, he had found himself buckled in, lest he find himself in such an unfortunate position as Terschurr.

And while Brighton endured the rough flight with relative, seasoned ease, he couldn't help but offer just as much banter over the CB channel as Seraph had seemed to match. All in all, he favored the informality of the ship. It had helped him establish a working bond with the other crew members; an action that wasn't favored by most Commanders, but something he found essential in caring for his team. And so he did, and with reason.

"We'll meet in CIC, that way we'll gett' get time to suit up and have a last brief before we shove off." Brighton reminded Seraph again, though it seemed he wasn't too sore to do so. As much as he could even attempt to be, he was the last thing from reminiscent of any sort of drill-camp Commander. It was his own flaw, but not one he was too readily keen on fixing.

And as they had landed, the Commander disengaged his buckles and took a moment to stand up. A little nauseous from the trip, as always, but regardless of his stature, his stomach wasn't made of steel. The feeling quickly subsided, and the man found his way toward the CIC. His demeanor had quickly shifted from lenient to business-like and nearly ritualistic, as embarking on a dangerous planet was no laughing matter. "Make sure you're suited up the moment we step foot on Hagira. No skin showing, you flighty broads, the insects here're at least five times worse than they are in the great country-continent of Australia, and that's sayin' somethin'."

"We don't touch the wildlife, and we dispatch of any movin' thin' which comes within 20 feet'a us, lest y'd like t'die. Listening, Ensigns?" He said, as he soon found himself inside of the CIC.

And then he began to suit up, though he had mostly been ready when they had landed. His helmet gave a hissing sound as it'd engaged itself and he'd plugged into the technology his armor already held. He had a rifle equipped - one of his own brand. It was sleek, and self-absorbedly hinted to the Commander's wealthy background. He had a pistol and two knives on him as well, and the subsequent ammo that followed. Pouches that lined his armor had carried grenades, a radio, and other kinds of doodads that he found neccesary to carry with him, as well as his own personal oxygen tank that was fastened to his back.

"We shove off when we're all ready and briefed. No time after and no time less." The man said, as he turned his attention toward the technology in the room.

Brighton had patiently waited until the Ensigns and everyone else had found themself ready, and his secondhand man was at his side. That, being Castor. He had nodded, and took a step toward the exterior door. When he found that Seraph had gotten her orders out and they were just about ready to disembark onto the planet, the rifle he had clipped to his side beforehand came off, and readily found itself in his hands. He'd given Seraph a small curtsy and a nod. "So chivalry isn't dead, is it?"

The armored man grinned over at Lieutenant Castor, though the emotion could barely be seen through the orange-red reflective surface of his helmet. "Lets tango, then." He had affirmed, only then stepping out onto the planet's surface after Seraph.

The crunch under his metal boots had affirmed his presence, and he had almost been mystified by the brimming wildlife around him. The HUD present on the screen that sat in front of his eyes had fed him information about it, and dulled the experience a considerable amount, however. "All it needs is a loo and a few offices, and this place'd be right off, hm?"

The commander's words didn't go with reckless caution. After Seraph had exited the ship, he too brought his rifle around in an attempt to spot the area. It was going to be far more difficult in the thick underbrush and trees when they had gotten there, but that was another thought for a time in the future.

Blip.

The pilot of the transportation ship stood up, and waved a hand behind him.

Blip.

The radar showed a ship. A ship? A piece of debris, maybe. A small piece of rock, perhaps. But it was something; they hadn't seen anything in quite a long while. Space was like that, and space was boring.

In response to the pilot waving him down, Argus Brighton hopped up from the chair he'd been lazily swiveling in and took place behind the pilot, looking to the radar.

"Got something. And..." He pointed to a light that flashed on the console, and then pressed a button below. The SOS that had been sent out flashed on the console, the text streaming across the screen slowly.

Need Fuel. Crew's dead. Attacked by pirates.

Text. Maybe they were too injured to send a message? Argus had soon sent a voice response back. In an Australian accent, he sent,

"We're pickin' you up. Hold on, there. How many survived?"

He read the message.

Argus reached for the indentation on his temple; an implant. Once pressed, his voice came over the vox system of his own ship. "I need some dockers and soldiers at the bay. And doc. Hamilton, Rock, Yeminite... Liya, and Genji, get down there. We're taking in a wounded ship. One man, wearing armor, is the only survivor. Bodies expected."

He paced out of the pilot room, and flitted over to the docking bay. He was armored, just as well, though his helmet was off. The transportation ship moved toward the injured, and it's rectangular bay opened beneath. All of soldiers, dockers, and Argus waited for the ship to drift in, and to use their equipment to settle it.
