After playing through several stages of The Telurian Saga on his datapad, Niall heads to the Crow's Nest in his dress uniform. Not sure why they're having the promotion ceremony here as opposed to the briefing room, like last time.

Military Etiquette ☞ 80% 1d100 = 79 (SUCCESS)

Niall takes a seat away from the bar. After the small bottle of Ego's prime hooch, he's not super interested in the thrice-distilled toilet bowl cleaner they call alcohol in here, so he orders nothing. If he sees anyone he knows he says hello.

When the other members of the 1st SOG come in, he stands and walks over to them. When he sees Nova and Ego, he asks "Anything cool from the Armory?"

Ryden circulates, saying hello to anyone he recognizes, especially anyone from ADP, Engineering, the Flight Deck, or other SOGs. Afterwards he settles with some water at Niall's table. Ryden is fidgeting with the tablet, working on a dozen coding projects a little bit at a time. He is, of course, making no progress on any of them, but he finds it hard to concentrate without his suit computer. Also it allows him to stay aware of people moving around them, as well as casual conversation. Still, he feels naked without his suit computer and it shows to those who know him.

"Wonder why Speckles is holding the ceremony here, unless he's going to skip right to the party afterward." Ryden chuckles a bit a this.

Conditions:
Local Time: Day 54, 1730
Location: A.D.F.S. Dauntless, 1st S.O.G. Berthing


Ryden walks in, spots Niall and Halko, and takes a seat with them at a table. Two female officers are seated, grimacing as they sip degreaser. One wears a resting bitch face like it's very comfortable and familiar to her. She's got the gold ribbon and silver star of a commander over her left breast. The other female officer looks to be a Hoshi: creamy skin, beautiful, almond-shaped eyes, and lustrous blue-black hair. A tight alertness around her her eyes and the blue ribbon with a silver star marks her as a Captain in rank. He can't make out their M.O.S. patches in the lighting though. Aside from the two female officers, his incomplete gang, and the bartender that Rosseyn slept with, the XO of the Dauntless, CDR Mikhai Renzi, is present. The Crow's Nest is full of brass. Halko's the only enlisted even present. The Hoshi Captain looks rather familiar, but Ryden can't place the face. A few minutes later, a burst comes through and Ryden's datapad beeps at him. It's a message from Bodean.

Code: Select all
"Hey Big Guy, we're back in the fleet. Hope things are going well for you and your wife! If you get a chance, send us a vid message. Just wanted to say hi. Talk to you later! Brainiac out."

"Sumbitch! You're still alive! Would you know that I helped train-up those cats in the 1st MEU? But CPT Anaru wouldn't let me join 'em! Speckles told him I was too valuable a training resource given my time in the SOG, and he bought it! Good guy, that Anaru, but I came damn close to punching him into the nearest star when the frakker told me that! Villana and I are doing well otherwise. Debatin' with her Twilight Valley style --nudge nudge-- about making a little Marrowrath together. Anyway, I gotta git. You give the SOG my best! --B"

Ryden's e-mail to LCDR Davis, SUPPO receives a terse reply.
"Lieutenant? Well, congrats, shipmate. I got the box of chocolates. Kept a prototype suit on hold for you in case you made it back from your squad's operation. Hit up the new Chief Sergeant. She's already been apprised of the sitch." The message terminates. There is no signature.

Ryden's e-mail to CDR Perry, COMMO receives a nearly gushing reply for a woman of her reserve.
"Lieutenant, I couldn't begin to thank you more. Not only is the girly stuff absolutely wonderful, but you brought back enough spare parts for a number of departments to make vital repairs. Seriously, if you see any brass at the Nest, you can bet your rations will be no good there. I let them all know who they had to thank for all the materiel. Have fun at your new command. --COMMO"

Ryden's generic status report to Miwa of being back in the fleet gets delivered, but he gets an automated response in return.
"I'm currently unavailable and unable to disclose my whereabouts. INFOSEC, you know. Leave me a message. If this is my 2D Ninja, I hope you brought me something either sweet or that smells good! Looking forward to hooking up for some side-scroll action over some degreaser with you." :drunken:

Ryden is certain the Hoshi woman is the captain of the Stilleto. Makes the woman beside her the XO. She's got an XO look to her. Resting bitch face just made her a natural for it. But the message from B-Man brightens Ryden's face. "Crash, Backlash, guess who trained up the First Marine Expeditionary unit? None other than our B-Man. Dude is definitely the type to sharpen marines into super bad asses. Sounds of it, they are trying their best to have a little Marrowrath too. Gods, that still wigs me out. But damn hard to be anything but happy for them. After all of this we'll have to send him a unit pic and message from all of us."

The message from LCDR Davis brings a smile to Ryden's face. 'This is why you do favors for people in supply. They do you favors! Wait, Congratulations for what?' Reading Commander Perry's email has him smiling until the last few words which immediately bring him back to LCDR Davis's opening statement. His eyes immediately snap up to the Hoshi woman and her dour companion. Captain Tanaka of the ADF Stiletto. Which would make her bitch faced partner...a quick check of the info net..Commander Qorbin. The team was about to switch commands. He swallows hard.

He shoots off an email to Rosseyn.
"Nova. SITREP.
The Nest is brass central. There are two female officers. Pretty sure they are both our new command team. Captain Tanaka of the Stiletto, Hoshi woman, and I think Commander Qorbin. Will confirm and message back. Dauntless XO, Renzi, is also here. Got a message from B-Man, he says hello.
Brainiac."

Ryden copies the entire team, including Ego.

He then casually slides his tablet over to Crash and Backlash with the message up as he gets up and heads over to the Hoshi woman. "Captain, Commander. Welcome to the Dauntless. Lt. Ryden Hunter. I'm pleased to meet you both and wanted to thank you both for your attendance of this ceremony. Are you both from the Stiletto?"

When Niall sees other members of the 1st enter the Crow's Nest, he waves them over.

Ryden wrote:"Wonder why Speckles is holding the ceremony here, unless he's going to skip right to the party afterward."


Niall nods, feeling a bit more at ease now that some of his teammates are here. "I was wondering that myself."

Niall scans the room as Ryden does his thing - head down over a screen. He notices the room is full of officers. Did Crow's Nest become an officer's club while we were away?

Ryden wrote:"Crash, Backlash, guess who trained up the First Marine Expeditionary unit? None other than our B-Man. Dude is definitely the type to sharpen marines into super bad asses. Sounds of it, they are trying their best to have a little Marrowrath too. Gods, that still wigs me out. But damn hard to be anything but happy for them. After all of this we'll have to send him a unit pic and message from all of us."


Niall smiles widely at this bit of news. "What'd they always used to say? 'Twilight Valley will rise again'? Heh. Bodean's gonna be personally responsible for that, I imagine." Niall tries not to think about Bodean and Villana's close blood relationship.

When Ryden slides his tablet Niall's way, he reads it with interest.

Ryden wrote:"Nova. SITREP.

Stiletto? What's that about? Niall looks up, and tries to find Tanaka in the crowd. Wait - are we being transferred off the Dauntless? Why?

A clean-shaven Cairo walks into the Crow's Nest [toting any remaining liquor Ego had originally brought along, which he'll drop at the Bar first thing], and then looks around for the rest of the Squad. Once he finds an open seat with the others he greets them, "Crash, Brainiac, Backlash, how are we doing this evening? Good to hear that Bodean is doing well. Anyone hear anything interesting while roaming the corridors? I guess they are setting up hydroponics on a couple of ships, so that's good news. Still in set up mode though, so I guess it'll be a while until we see anything fresh that we'd recognize. I wonder if we have anyone in Fleet with Plant powers."

If/when directed to check his Email (or the tablet on the table), CJ will read Brainiac's summation of the Brass present and looks over at the Stiletto Command team. CJ recognizes Captain Tanaka from their video-call this morning, *Interesting. Damn, she's much cuter in person. I wonder what kind of operations they have been handling, if they got over to Chandrakhant and Hesperos, or if it's all just Fleet-babysitting all the time. Hell they may have other SOGs running to entirely different quadrants, reaching out and making friends in high, or low places.*

Into the Crow's Nest walk two people who could not be more dissimilar in appearance. They both look familiar to the older members of the 1st SOG.
ImageImage
The woman's voice is as hauntingly beautiful as she is as she laughs at some remark made by her companion. Every aspect of her appearance suggests grace, and a beauty refined through careful study of both the sophisticated and feminine arts. She is of slightly taller than average height for an Arismal woman. Lean of figure, elegant in dress, and absolutely polished in both appearance and demeanor. Her companion is short, wiry, appears introverted and uncomfortable in this environment, and is sending off nearly palpable waves of sexual anxiety.

(Rolls held)
'Of course Ms. Perchuhi and Mr. Aleš are here. That would only make things awkward.' He looks for the monocle recorder she wore on the Profit Motive. 'Mr. Aleš, of course, had barely been involved in anything, but I imagine he's been very busy since the flow of food from the Second's mission and now ours.'

He walks up to Mr. Aleš, and coincidentally his beautiful companion. Normally he would simply disregard her as stupid - usually brains and beauty do not come in the same package, but like Jill, that was not the case for Ms. Perchuhi. She is a super-predator and every bit the analyst he is, though focused likely on other things. "Mr. Aleš, Ms. Perchuhi. Lt. Ryden Hunter. We met briefly aboard the Profit Motive. I hope the night finds you in good spirits, or at least better than average." 'Damn, 23 days ago we got them.' Aside from greeting them, he does not press for more conversation, though he will engage them if pressed. He begins looking around for the FAR Ambassador at this point. Ms. Perchuhi would make an excellent analyst to glean information from her and Mr. Aleš would be an obvious bait for conversation. The man behind the food distribution in the fleet.

When he sits down, he grabs his datapad and types something from memory as a reply to all message.
    'Also present, we have Isabela Perchuhi and Rúni Aleš.

    Isabela Perchuhi: Tier 2. A former fashion model turned journalist (some would say propagandist) for the planetary council, she's well-known for her great beauty and ability to use that to disarm her targets. A well-known political commentator, analyst, and public relations mogul who worked for the planetary council. I figure she's here to read us for the admiralty, or, more likely, to read the FAR ambassador when she comes later.

    Rúni Aleš: Unknown Tier; stayed out of the media despite his once great wealth. A wealthy entrepreneur (and pacifist) who introduced new food distribution methods to restaurant chains. I am 95% certain he was instrumental in the current food stock status for the fleet. Guy's an introvert, so keep questions brief and on topic. I figure he's here as part of the show that comes along with all this Brass.

Almost as if on que, the FAR diplomat and her Arismal security escort show up.
ImageImage
Wanda flashes a warm smile at the 1st SOG members who are present, says a word to Rolyn, then wanders over to have a seat by the two A.D.F. women already seated. They begin to talk to one another. It looks like formal introductions as handshakes are exchanged. Rolyn splits off from Wanda and heads for the 1st SOG. Giving Cairo a big hug, he says "Sorry about the cold shoulder, C.J. I don't play games in the field. It's been damned good to see so many Arismal in one place and managing to survive."

Ryden introduces himself to the two civilians. "Mr. Aleš, Ms. Perchuhi. Lt. Ryden Hunter. We met briefly aboard the Profit Motive. I hope the night finds you in good spirits, or at least better than average."

Unexpectedly, Mr. Aleš is the first the respond. "Congratulations on your commission, Lieutenant. Yes, I remember each of you who were on board the ship. I'm glad we could avoid a physical confrontation that day."
Ms. Perchuhi follows suit less pointedly. She seems to have no sharp edges, only soft, rounded corners smoothed and polished by beauty, and, Ryden can discern, through years of careful practice. "It's a pleasure to meet you Lieutenant. Unlike Rúni, I do not have an eidetic memory, but I do recall you and your teammates from that day. Well, your strong, handsome faces and the disaster you averted anyway." She looks over at Rúni. "Remember what we're not supposed to disclose, Rúni." She returns her attention to Ryden. "We're in fine spirits, Mr. Hunter. It's not every day that we're invited to attend a military ceremony. Won't you introduce me to your teammates?"

"Thank you kindly. I am glad to have avoided it as well Mr. Aleš, more than you know. With all the tension in the fleet, any physical conflict between Arismal are to be strictly avoided if possible. You're far too polite to call me handsome Ms. Perchuhi, though admittedly some of my squad are. An Eidetic memory has its benefits and its burdens, as I am sure Mr. Aleš can confirm. There are things one would rather forget the details of, but cannot." He sounds to be talking from experience.

"I'd be happy to, but can it wait until they are all here? But if you'd like I can introduce you to those who are here now."

Contingency: If she insists, Ryden will lead them to the 1st's table. "Team, may I present Ms. Isabela Perchuhi and Mr. Rúni Aleš. Mr. Aleš is best known as a genius who has mastered the art of food distribution networks in the past. Ms. Perchuhi was a well known political commentator and analyst, and I am sure her mastery of her craft has only increased. I believe you will both recognize Lt. Niall Zeddus, and Sergeant Jerrick Halko, both from their times before the military and the mission to the Profit Motive. May I also present Lt. Cairo Xanrays, a newer addition to our team since we met you 23 days ago. I'll let Lt. Xanrays introduce his friend."

JiC D20: 1d20 = 17
JiC D100: 1d100 = 99

Relaxing casually at the table, CJ watches as none other than Isabela Perchuhi walks in, *Hoooo-boy. She looks just as good as she did 10-12 years ago walking a catwalk in lingerie. All the grace of a frill cat, claws that go with it; a little bit domestic and a little more of the wyld. What's the old saying? Women and cats will do as they please, and men and dogs should relax and get used to the idea. Well she maybe not quite the same, but still wow. She's some kind of politician now right? ... * His eyes flit briefly to an email where Brainiac is advising Nova of the Prorx nest they seem to have landed in, *and it will probably requires twice the care to get out without being stung. Hmmmm so the pale little guy is a pacifist? How do you stick to something like that when the world has been shattered.*

His gaze is momentarily drawn by yet another shapely form as Wanda and and Rolyn arrive, *Ahhhh a new rival-challenger type. Bringing a bit of the exotic in from out of Fleet, but still don't know about trusting that one.* CJ cocks an eyebrow at Rolly's repeated apology, "No worries Cousin. We hashed it all out last couple days right?"

When Brainiac approaches the table with the civilian-supermodel (ex-or not) in-tow, Cairo's fairly sure he'll wake up any second now. When that doesn't happen though, he rises to shake hands politely, "Good evening, Cairo Xanreys, and this is my cousin Rolyn Xanreys."

"No new scuttlebutt. Though I suppose..." He looks around the room at all the brass, "There will be some soon." Niall thinks about the hydroponics op, and wonders if his haul of seeds motivated that, or if it was a happy coincidence. In the future, we'll either have to engineer or obtain some food seeds that perform well in... what do the aliens call them... low-light conditions. Normal lighting. Though I suppose that can wait until we have a colony set up somewhere and know what the situation there will be. "If they're the seeds I brought back, I dunno if it'll ever be any food you recognize. But I hope it'll be a step up from nutrient paste."

Niall's eyes follow Ryden's as Runi Aleš and Isabela Perchuhi enter. He smiles, glad to see them in good health after their tense encounter on the Profit Motive. He can't help but wonder what they're doing here, at a promotion ceremony, but he rises to greet them nonetheless. He scans his memories for anything related to Runi's business dealings or personal interests.

Business and Finance ☞ 70% 1d100 = 14 (Runi Aleš - SUCCESS)

When Ryden introduces them, Niall shakes Runi's hand. "Mr. Aleš... we didn't have the opportunity to talk aboard the Profit Motive. Niall Zeddeus. I'm familiar with your work back on Arismal - I dined often at Ravo, in Irinu. One of the restaurants in your network. Always the finest food. Pleased to meet you. I take it you're the one setting up the hydroponics operation?"

As he greets Isabela, he also tries to remember any particular business or personal interests of hers.

Business and Finance ☞ 70% 1d100 = 90 (Isabela Perchuhi - FAIL)
Intelligence ☞ 70% 1d100 = 17 (Isabel Perchuhi - SUCCESS)

Niall also moves quickly to take Isabela's hand, offering her a warm smile.

Charm/Impress ☞ 20% 1d100 = 32 (FAIL)

Gods... is it possible she's even more beautiful than when we met. Unbidden, Ryden's warning about her flashes through his mind, and he chuckles. She's a PR hack - I wonder if my parents ever contracted through her to repair the damage I did to our family name. I don't recall her name coming up around the table... but dad was never one to trot our mistakes out over dinner. Regardless, he thinks, I have no doubt exactly how she sees me.

"Niall Zeddeus. Glad to meet under more relaxed circumstances."

Rolyn nods, still with a tightness around his eyes, and leans in to whisper to Cairo. "Hard to let my guard down or trust anyone here though, especially after hearing about the infighting. It'll be a welcome relief to transfer to a smaller ship."

When Brainiac approaches the table with the civilian supermodel, Cairo rises to shake hands politely, "Good evening, Cairo Xanreys, and this is my cousin Rolyn Xanreys."

She shakes hands politely with both of them then almost perceptibly brightens the room when she smiles at Wanda. "And you must be the diplomat Arismal's finest has brought safely to the fleet! Tell me, what do you think of the proposed idea of a military organization holding an election? An election where only the captains of the military ships are viable candidates?"

Perhaps for the first time since meeting her, the 1st SOG's present members see Wanda look flustered. She's only able to feebly respond with a choked out "Wha...what?"

Niall's eyes follow Ryden's as Runi Aleš and Isabela Perchuhi enter. He scans his memories for anything related to Runi's business dealings or personal interests. Mr. Aleš' exploits are well known despite the low profile he always maintained. A very private multi-millionaire, Mr. Aleš was always one who had shunned the limelight and scrutiny of the Arismal global media industry even when his work earned him world-wide repute. When Ryden introduces them, Niall shakes Runi's hand. "Mr. Aleš...we didn't have the opportunity to talk aboard the Profit Motive. Niall Zeddeus. I'm familiar with your work back on Arismal - I dined often at Ravo, in Irinu. One of the restaurants in your network. Always the finest food. Pleased to meet you. I take it you're the one setting up the hydroponics operation?"

"Just consulting and assisting, as always." Niall detects a hint of disdain from the man directed at him. Perhaps due to the fact that the two men could not have lead more different public lives.

As Niall greets Isabela, he also tries to remember any particular business or personal interests of hers. He can't recall which of the telecomm conglomerates with whom she worked, but he does remember that she was the top of her entire field, and by a healthy margin. He also seems to recall her having been the target of that same field on more than one occasion with rumors of her having various highly influential men and women under her sway over the course of her career. "Niall Zeddeus. Glad to meet under more relaxed circumstances."

She cups both of her hands around his outstretched one and gives it a gentle squeeze. "So sorry for your loss, Mr. Zeddeus. Your father was a fine man; a true paragon of virtue among a class often filled with charlatans." While Niall might not be the most charming fellow at all times, he sincerely feels the warmth of not only her luxuriously supple skin but also that of her expressed sentiment and is genuinely moved by it. Not an ounce of artifice appears present in her countenance.

Rosseyn walks in with Ego and some items stashed under his arms. Giving a nod to Niall, he greets him. "Zeddeus! They've got all kinds of stuff in there. I picked these up for the crew. Well, except me and Backlash. I'm not sure if his exploding or my energy transformation would allow these to work properly. We'll get it figured out."

Looking around, he sees the brass, civilians and diplomats all hanging around chatting it up. Definitely a strange sight for the bar here. Speaking of the bar... Rosseyn hands Niall the harnesses and says "Get these handed out. I'm grabbing a drink."

Walking up to the bar, he smiles at the bartender and says "Good to see you, sweetheart. What've you got back there for me?" She looks as good as ever.

Perception [59%]: 1d100 = 9 [+15% in Space]
JiC D20: 1d20 = 11
JiC D100: 1d100 = 88

When Isabela's query stumps Wanda, CJ offers a friendly comment [Lore: Alien (80%): 1d100 = 16], "Actually, that is referred to as a stratocracy, a form of government headed by military chiefs. Typically you will find such in societies in which the state and the military are traditionally or constitutionally the merged. Citizens with mandatory service, or veterans who have been honorably discharged, usually have the right to elect. The military's administrative, judiciary, and/or legislature powers are supported by law, the constitution, and the society. A stratocracy can therefore be considered a meritocracy and does not necessarily need to be autocratic or oligarchic by nature in order to preserve its right to rule. If I am not mistaken the Bwadenn of your FAR were as well, order their society as such, correct? Or am I thinking of someone else? ..."

CJ offers a wave of greeting as Nova and New-Guy (Ego) get to the Crows Nest and stifles a chuckle as he sees that they have brought along several harnesses, *Now that's a bit funny. He's got to have a Portal back to the Berthing, why carry all that stuff around?*

Corrigon follows Rosseyn into the Crow's Nest, the holster for his new hand cannon empty having quickly secured it in their berthing, but otherwise suited and booted in his dress uniform and damn did he make it look good. Definitely get in trouble for carrying a weapon around all these people. Noticing the ranks of the people there, he raised an eyebrow. Pretty sure I'm the lowest ranked person in this room ... who isn't a civilian.

"Sir," he greets Niall, though he sounds a little hesitant to use his name, considering they had only met for a few minutes before he and Rosseyn had gone to the armoury.

He looks around and spots a few people from the Profit Motive. He nods a greeting at them before heading to the bar. Get a drink first, maybe

After collecting a drink, he goes over to the civilians from the Profit Motive. He still had a good relationship with them after his stint onboard.

"Good to see you again," he greets them with a smile, "how is life on-board the profit Motive nowadays?"

Percep 39%: 1d100 = 89
JIC: 1d20 = 5 1d100 = 88

Halko stays seated next to Ryden, trying his best to not put any creases in the dress uniform. When Ryden pushes the data pad across the table with the info on the Stiletto Captain, Halko simply offers a nod. That may be but there's no use speculating. One way or another, we will see what happens.

When the various people start to gravitate over to their table, Halko slides out and smooths out his uniform, dusting of the shoulders and tugging the lapel straight. Offering a hand, smile and a nod to those he's introduced to, Halko stays pretty quiet as he starts to wonder if it rally is him getting the promotion today. Frak, could it really be me. Why the hell are all these officers here? They better not be making me an officer. I mean, I'll take Master Chief but butter bars just aren't for me.

Niall smiles at the man. Though in the presence of all this brass, he can't help but correct the enlisted man - though he does so under his breath - "Don't 'sir' me."

He claps Ego on the shoulder, and moves off to speak to the others.
