We’re waiting for you for the briefing Yeah yeah Welcome to you all, let’s get started. As you know we are in the LEIR System on the outer edge. This morning at 9:35am HL1, a distress call has been identified. Without wormwholes the message is a two-day trip away from here with quantum dot for the first half of the journey. The other half will be at cruising speed… that is 370 meters/second An old station of communication antenna will be your quantum dot and will serve as a check point. Lary for this long journey you will be provided with a StarFarer. A space vehicle capable of travelling long distances in the absence of wormwhole. A big machine. Concerning the equipment you will get the classics, assault weapon handgun and your own knife. Of course explosives for Plada with reinforced armor against explosion. An additional spacesuit in the StarFarer will also be useful. For what we know, There is no information about the source of this mayday call. It is played in loop, probably preprogrammed. I won’t lie, this can be a trap so be careful. It might be a trace of an old message. The Starfarer is ready, waiting for you with two mechanics on board. Takeoff is programmed in 30 minutes. Questions ? Major ? Fine … then go ! StarFarer to Idris, do you copy ? Over Idris to starfarer, loud and clear Lary. Over Hey Nancy ! Nancy’s here So what ? I don’t give a shit So, ready to go kick the ass of those pirates dressed up as crybabies ? Over If it is to kick some ass … sounds good to me … Ok start the engines Started Shield 100% … now ! Great, lock the doors Ok How many modules ? Six operational Happy shuttle ! Enjoy your flight. Over and out Perfect, all is ok. Happy shuttle ? Happy shuttle. Happy shuttle. Hum ? No that’s your own thing ! … that’s bullshit. I won’t say it. Should we cancel the mission Major ? Happy shuttle Yeeees , Ready for takeoff in 3 ! Shift the energy on the engines 2 Why putting all the power on the engines ? There’s no rush ! 1 the faster it will be over … … the sooner we’ll be done. And we’re off !
