Assorted Role Plays: Black Talon

One of my many little forks of role play set in my overall universe. This isn't canon by the way.


This is typed like a transcript from a communication system.


Notice reference to "Soul-catcher"? This is a reference to a game that pretty much inspired the very first role play for "The Game" that me and my friend did back in school, and started the entire universe. That game is called "Hostile Waters: Antaeus Rising".


Nostalgia.

Information sheet concerning the construction of the Black Talon.


Engineers report construction is at 40% and proceeding to plan, however there have been some minor "issues" regarding its development. Our chief engineer reports

intergration problems with the Core Neural Network and the tech units throughout the craft, she says it could be down to a worn/ missing sub-Bio-Matrix. Easy to replace?

No. For starters we need to find a replacement part. Which is, well in the most optimistic way... Impossible. Secondly we would need to find the defective unit, ussually we would use

the Diagnostic systems, but since the reserve circuitary and power grid is down, we're pretty much screwed. But hope is not lost, Kira believes she can fix our little "predicamnet"

without a spare unit or fidiling with the broken one, yeah wow, i'm not very optimistic but she's proven herself on many occasions in the past to be very... lets just say

"resourceful".


Oh And Linx, you know when our sensor probe on the other side of the wormhole picked up those UTF ships last week? Well i have some insight into that, I did some research into the Soul-Catcher's databanks and found some files on her history in the UTF Navy! Talk about luck, but the files survived the re-install of the system core routines, some kind of encryption i think. But anyway about our "visitors", i dug out some Navy operation file called "Project Paralellius" high level stuff, you know? governmnet cover-ups? And after i bypassed the tri-leveled firewall i pulled out a file on the operation's vessel deployments! And thats when i stumbled upon a particularly interesting file called "Spirit Sheet" it contains data on some kind of alien ship, and well, yes, you probably guessed it by now... The Black Talon, apparently the UTF spent almost 34 years trying to find it, after their eggheads uncovered a map of unknown origin stored in some kind of a crystal

And all this time, it was right here under their noses! Anyway i also picked out some files containing scripts that the UTF found around here and geuss what? they contain detailed info on the Talon's systems!!!!


So, i forwarded it to Kira, and she practically kissed me for it (well worth the time i spent! haha!) and she said she can fix it, i told her to contact you asap. Right, i diagressed but it was important! about the UTF vessels, i found detailed info on 3 small task groups that were deployed to the Van-Kurr's belt to try and find the gate to the Talon's resting place (we found it by accident! haah!!) and our "friends" appear to be from the 3rd group code named "Sires". But heres the wierd bit, it states that they were dispatched from Andgate Docks in the Rellian System 3,500 years ago... thats around the time of the UTFs downfall, so the dates add up, but how come we just saw them? i KNOW FOR A FACT that that Frigate, the "Chester" by the way, has an operating life on self-sustaining of 10 years MAX, and does not have any means of facilitating cryo or generation management, not to mention those corvettes. you might think i miss-identified them, but nope, i triple checked and the IDs and ship serials plus names and schematics, all match 100%... wierd isnt it. I need to get back to work now, so cya later Linx.

Hi Serris, thanx for the info, it has opened my eyes.

Linx, Serris told me what you wanted, and hey your the boss, you saved my ass more times than i can shake a photon enhancer tube at!, anyway, i know its a bit late but the Shark's all suited up and ready to kick ass, took me damn long enough to convince my crew that i wasn't pissing around, but i set 'em straight so everyone's ready, and i ran a check on our systems, the Shark may be old but shes a survivor, we're "a"-ok skipper as we used to say back in the TSRC Sc. fleet. ;D


P.S All After cleaning about a foot of dust and grime of the bridge consoles! :P

Sir, the Sentinel is ready, we report combat readyness. Me and my crew are ready for anything, sir.

Linx, assuming the guys contacted you, i can say we are as ready as we're ever gonna be. The Catcher is holding up well, she's had a bit of a problem with her portside capactor grid, but the engineering team managed to patch it up (or so they said ;]). Its been ages since we fired up her main systems, i was almost expecting them to not start at all- but the Catcher is reliable that i can say! Apart from that little "hiccup" she's well within operating limits,

and after a few diagnostic runs and tests, plus motivating the crew, she will be ready for anything, as Feral would say.
