Galaxy Asunder IC

The "Black Pearl" was docked at one of the Irrida class space stations. An ancient design, these space stations were once defensive line during the Federation-Thornian Collective war, now have been refurbished as a sort of rest stops for the spacers.

While the rest of the crew hit the bars, or were resupplying the ship, Dorian and Sage took the recent haul to a meeting point with one of their Atlas contacts.
- Here's the stuff - Dorian said while pushing the grav-cart towards the corporate representative. He was a shrewd man, accompanied by several soldiers of the Atlas private military, the so called Argent Lance.
- Tablets? - The corporate rat asked while examining the crate on the grav-cart.
- For the most part. Some crystals too. Amethyst by the look of it. Could be something else. Each of those have been faceted in some sort of metal casing.
- The pay's been transfered - Sage said.
- Good. You need anything else?
- Yes. One of our teams had found a most promising site. We're uploading the coordinates now.
- Allright, we'll check it out. - Dorian said as the Atlas representative took their leave.
- Motherf!$@@er. -Dorian said after the Atlas men were out of sight. He took a sip from one of his flasks.
- So, where's the site? - Dorian asked Sage.
- Desert planet of some sort. Belim VII, fifty parsecs away from our current spot.
- Whoopity!%#^ing-doo, another one. We're not getting payed enough for this crap - Dorian said.
- Holy $hit Dorian, they're paying ten million for this haul.
- No way. - Dorian took a glimpse at Sage's tablet computer. - You're right. They've must've hit a treasure trove in there. Let's get back to the ship, before more players get in on this. - He sent a message to everyone on shore leave to return to the ship asap.

-A'ight! Learned your lesson?- Jakeeus started laughing -Did'ya think these were just for show? I'll grant ya surprised me at the beginning.- He continued laughing and clicking.

A young fellow was sitting in front of him bracing his wrist.
-You [redacted]! that hurt!-
-Don't be such a wuss, it happens when you limp out at the end.-
He then turned to the crowd spectating the match: -Anyone else wants to try the feel of an iron arm?-
A loud screech then caught his attention.
-Just a moment, got a text.-
He checked his arm device and got up: -The offer expired, got some stuff to do- He then pointed to a random guy and smiled: -I'll beat you up next time I come here.-

"Oh those [redacted], it's almost like they knew I took some extra time off... Time to run.-

Dorian was sitting in his chair on the bridge of the Black Pearl, and was addressing his crew via the ship's internal communication systems.
- We've got a big one lads. Even though it's on another bloody desert planet with god knows what on it, but for this haul those rats of Atlas are willing to pay 10 million federal credits, rather than their usual quarter million. Get rested, and be on your toes, this will no matter attract unwanted attention. I expect the landing parties to be prepared for anything.

Dorian downed a large gup from his flask and addressed his pilot.
- Jeq, take us out of here.
- Aye captain. - The pilot replied.
Moments later, the cruiser left the docking area of the space station, and had set it's course to Belim VII.
There were several more AUs((Astronomical units)) towards the hyperspace jump point, so Jeq limited to cruising speed. Dorian was sitting in his chair, observing the pilot and the other staff on the bridge.
- Captain - one of the officers said. - A ship is insight, Gozanti Class, markings match those of Captain Raemus.
- Fire up a couple of Ion cannon shots at it's ass. Payback's a b!@$%. - Dorian said. As soon as the cruiser's ion cannon batteries hit the nearby vessel, the Black Pearl received a hail. Dorian brought it up on screen.
- What is the meaning of this..? we're on a mission on behalf of the... Hawken? What in the hell is wrong with you..?
- Where's my f@#%^ing money sh!thead? - Dorian asked the captain of the ship he just attacked. The ion cannon shots had disabled the ship's systems, rendering it unable to escape.
- Either you cough up those 5 mil you owe me asswipe, or we're boarding you motherf@#$%er.
- Hawken, be reasonable, I'll get you the money after this job, the Ishan Corporation is paying well for the haul we're carrying, and you don't want to mess with them... You can come work for them too, I mean the pay's excellent...
- Be reasonable? You owe me, and avoid paying me for the last five years you cheeky deadbeat f@#%er. I'm f!%#%@ing done being reasonable. Also, Atlas pays much better. Gunners, knock out his defences. You're paying me now Raemus. In creds or in cargo, I don't care. - Dorian terminated the conversation with the other captain. He then addressed the crewmen on the hangar.
- Lads, prep the Baldr for immediate take off, we're gonna collect some debts.
- Boarding party, be present in the hangar ASAP - He said to his away team. Sage has cocked her guns already. Dorian picked up his gear and went into the turbolift with his liutenant.

The dropship of the Bloodhawks had docked with the ship of Captain Raemus. It was a small vessel in comparison to the Black Pearl, however, this shouldn't be a cakewalk.
As one of the boarding party finished breaking through the airlock, Sage tossed a couple grenades inside.
- Here's the plan - Dorian began - Veeri, you take a couple of lads and secure the cargo. If you find any Spice, toss it out the goddamned airlock, anything else is good to grab. There should be some of that ancient alien junk, since that dipsh!t mentioned he's hauling something for Ishan. Jakeeus, and the others focus on the crew. Me and sage will take out the captain. Ready?

"Yes sir", Veeri saluted mockingly.

The cargo was secured without hassle and Veeri had her men begin sorting it out. She strutted through the items stopping at the piled spice.

"Ungh, why waste such good stock."

She had tried to convince Dorian more than once since joining to change his mind on spice and slaves but to no avail. No point in arguing it now though Dorian seemed irked more than normal by Raemus. Oh well, there should be something in here that will make this detour worthwhile.

-Consider it done captain.- Jakeeus said with a tint of boredom.
"It's always taking down people, while he does the good stuff... Do I even have to shoot anything?"

The ship's corridors didn't provide enough cover for him, and some intersections were guarded by both sides.
Faced with the danger of being attacked by two sides he threw a photon grenade in one side while shooting at the other.
"[redacted] MY ARMOR!" The surface of his pauldron was smoldered by stray plasma.
-Hey you piece of [redacted], I'm going to bite your neck off and then steal your money, how do you like it now!?- Jakeeus shouted while turning to the other side of the corridor.

Dorian and Sage proceeded straight to the bridge of the ship, where Raemus and his top lieutenants were no doubt barricaded and ready for the last stand.
- Knock knock mother@#%$er - Dorian said as he placed a breaching charge onto the door. After the door was open, Sage tossed few concussion grenades into the room. Few of Raemus's men were knocked out by them, but the rest pulled up quite the fight. The firefight was intense, with the enemy crew all bearing rapid fire weapons, giving little opportunities for Dorian and Sage to counter attack. After a lengthy fight, the enemy crew was eventually put down, and Captain Raemus was injured during it. the equipment of the bridge was also relatively undamaged, despite all the shots fired.
- Sage, check the ship's computer, I wanna know where this human garbage was going to next.
- The last known course was Belim VII - Sage replied after few pushes of a button. She was now tapping into the accounts of Raemus, looking for any credits to leech over to the accounts of the Bloodhawk Corps.
- So what were you going to do on Belim, huh buddy - Dorian asked the injured captain.
- An ancient alien site's there. People say it's promising. All the major players for ancient tech are going there. You as well, I presume - Raemus coughed.
- You don't say. Sage, anything good?
- Yeah, he's got 12 mil in his accounts, transferring them now.
- You only said you wanted five...
- Interest Raemus, interest. You know, you dumb#$%#^, if you were going to pay me when we agreed, you wouldn't be in this mess. Now look at you. shot in the stomach, your crew's dead, you're pennyless, and we're also taking your cargo. This is what happens when you try to f#$% with me.
Dorians radio beeped. It was Jeq.
- Captain, two federation cruisers just exited hyperspace.
- Just hail them our privateering contracts. They'll bound leave us alone. - The federation generally stayed away from the business that the merchants concluded themselves, interfering only rarely. This made easier for the privateers to run their day to day operations.
- Aye sir.
Dorian returned his attention to Raemus.
- Did you called for your fed buddies to take you?
- No, I severed ties with them, I work solely for Ishan now... - The captain coughed again, this time more rougly than the last.
- So what are they doing here?
- LAst I've heard, they cracked down on a branch the Noregi Cartel- This cartel was the Galaxy's largest organisation dealing in Spice, and one of the reasons that Dorian ceased his drug trade, since the Noregi demanded a large cut, about 60% of the profits from any other spice dealers. Soon after, the majority of the spicers had dropped out of business or joined the cartel, making it a monopoly in drug trade. 4 out 5 people in the Federation bought their Spice from the Cartel.
- Good, at least some of the smack will be taken off. - Dorian said as he shot Raemus in the head from his shotgun.
- Let's go see what they're hauling - Dorian said to Sage, as he contacted Veeri.
- I presumed you secured the cargo already? what's good?- Dorian asked her on the radio.

- Do you want to fork over most of what we would've gotten for the smack to the Noregi goons? Because I don't. - Dorian replied to Veeri. - Begin loading the goods onto the ship, I'll join you shortly.
A few moments later Dorian was overseeing the loading of the goods onto the ship.
- What's with the sealed container?- Dorian asked - Is it Raemus's alien haul?
- Could be sir - One of his men replied.
- Is there any way to pry it open?
Sage noted a keypad on the container.
- I could try hacking it - She said.
- Let's do it back on our ship - Dorian said while pushing the container into the ship.

A few trips with the dropship later, all the goods from Raemus's cruiser were on board on the "Black Pearl's" cargo bay.
- Jeq, you're free to move towards the Hyperspace jump. Let's hope we'll reach Belim VII first. - He turned his attention towards the sealed container. Sage along with Tormidal were using a decoder to crack the code lock on it.
After several tries, the code was cracked, and the container was opened. Inside there were several tablets with the aline language on them, as well as an intact weapon and remains of what seemed to be a droid of some sort.
- Now there's a f$#^ing payday if I ever saw one - Dorian said while examining the gun.
- But before we hand it over to Atlas... Tormi, can you see what you can get out of this?- He asked the Evolon technician.
- I can see what I can do. - She said while taking the gun off the hands of Dorian.

It took a few days to close the distance to Belim VII, but the Black Pearl arrived. Dorian decided to hide the cruiser on the darkside on one of Belim's moons, and use the dropship to land on the planet itself. Accoring to the scanners, the planet was barren and devoid of life, despite of a breathable athmosphere, but there was a base camp set up by the archaeologists.
There was a suspicious lack of other craft present in the orbit, as Dorian thought that there would be no doubt at least some presence from either the Federation's Navy or the private corporate militaries.
After the dropship has landed, the landing party had exited with their guns at the ready. The site too, much like the planet, was empty and devoid of life.
- Stay sharp lads - Dorian said.- something's definitely off here. Let's head to the site.

The digsite was right nearby the basecamp. There was heavy mining equipment present, and a large alien structure unearthed. It was a smooth black surface, with blue energy lines going through some of the seams of the structure. there was an entrance right nearby the group.
- Blooyd hell you think this is? - Dorian said while reaching for one of his flasks.
- A structure of some sort by the looks of it. - Sage said as she readied her drone for recon. As the drone flew in, Sage began getting the readings from it.
- Empty. No life signs. Wait... The bot's picking up something. Very faint. but it's almost out of range.
- Life signs? - Dorian raised his eyebrow.
- Seem's like it.
- Let's head inside. - Dorian said before ordering some of his men to set up defenses.
Inside of the alien structure was artificially lit by the excavation team, using floodlights and other equipment. the inside was made of the exact same material as the outside did, with streaks of blue lights flowing through the seams in the walls.
- This is no ordinary structure. - He said to his team I'll be f"%%"ed if this isn't a bloody starship.
- What makes you think that, Captain?
- These goddamn narrow corridors, and the fact that the other sites were nothing compared to what we see here. also the map your drone drawed. Seem's oddly shaped to be a bloody building.
Indeed, the lines resembled a plan for a space faring vessel rather than a solid ground structure.
The corridor that the group was walking formed into a small room, and branched off into three different sections.
- I'm heading down the central corridor of this thing. Veeri, Jakeeus, take some lads and take the other two. Maintain coms at all time. Mae it up between yourself as who goes where, but make it quick.

Jakeeus was a bit unnerved, he wanted to make a wondrous discovery and get the credit for it, yet he knew he had to gamble on his chance to shine.

- So I guess it's sorted - Dorian said whilst beginning to move down the central corridor.
- It's too quiet here - Dorian said. - Where the f!"$ is everybody?
- There were no other ships on the landing pads, now were there? - Sage asked.
- No, there weren't. - Dorian took a sip from one of his flasks.- But it doesn't make any f"%ing sense. Why would you abandon the site, they were bound to leave some eggheads behind. And guards for them too. Just seems... you know, f"%ing unusual and suspicious as f"%.
Sage's wrist computer beeped, indicating that the drone had encountered something. it was about 50 meters from Dorian and Sage. Minutes later, they completed the distance. The drone had found some dead personnel of the dig site. It seemed they were shot, but the wound different from the traditional blasters or projectile weapons of the federation. though there was no blood, there were also no traces of burnt tissue of any kind, that a blaster shot usually leaves.
Dorian pushed the button on his earpiece.
- Hawken here, We've found some of the eggheads. Killed clean, by an unknown weapon. Stay f"%ing frosty lads.
- What do you think happened here?
- Aggressive scavs? Possible automated defenses? - Dorian pondered. - Who f!"%ing knows Sage. Let's keep moving forward.
- A door is nearby, opened by the looks of it - She said while looking at the feedback her drone was giving via it's camera. The feed suddenly stopped, as if the drone was shot.
Dorian and Sage immediatly took cover by the door. Inside the room, they've seen two figures, whom by the looks of it, were some sort of combat droids, armed with the weapons similar to what Dorian and his crew looted from Raemus's cruiser.
- Look's like now we know what the f!"% happened to them. - Dorian said while releasing the safety from his shotgun, and firing several blind shots into the room. It seems they've connected, as electrical hissing was heard. Sage did the same, and had sprayed the room with blaster fire, as Dorian also fired several more shots.
- Watch out for automated sentries! They put up quite the f$^ing fight! - Dorian said into his earpiece as he fired upon his attackers.
***
Jakeeus's group walked the corridor, until they reached an open door. There were several corpses, both of scientists, and of Atlas' Argent Lance troopers. As soon as the group entered the room, several of the combat droids sprung to life and opened fire onto them, as soon as the group got into cover.
***
Veeri and her group had reached their objective, just as easy as the others had did, and they too had found corpses of the archaeological expedition, as well as Atlas troops. The chamber that Veeri and her squadmates found seem to be a holding area for stasis pods. many were damages, and some recently, due to the firefight that ensued. She did however, spotted one stasis pod intact, but before her squad could secure it, they too were ambushed by the droids.

Jakeeus hissed, the sudden movement of the droids made every scale of his body twitch, he reflexively shot at the first droid he saw.

As the firefight progressed the group realized that the plating of the droids could easily disperse heat, making them quite resistant to direct plasma shots.

-Jakeeus reporting, we've engaged a bunch of droids too, those [redacted] ambushed us, thankfully we've had no losses yet... By the way we're pinned here.- He responded to Dorian's comm while two droids were making their advance.

- We're in a f"%ing tightspot as well lad - Dorian replied to Jakeeus - Just hold your f"%ing ground and try to flank the damn bast@rds. I'll join you after we're done here.
- Ha! got one - Sage said excitedly.
- Not over yet. at least one more of these f"$%ers out there - Dorian said while reloading his shotgun. With those words, one droid emerged from the room, just in time to be tazed by Sage's blaster rifle's build in taser. Dorian switched to his pistol and shot the droid in the head. the damaged machine collapsed, it's sensor lens dimming down.
With this droid down, the two moved into the room and took cover by some consoles. It seemed there was the only droid left in this room, and there were more of dead Argent Lancers, as well as destroyed droids. It seemed that the fighting before the Bloodhawks arrived was massive, as there were dozens of droid debris on the floor of the room. Without hesitation Sage and Dorian opened fire upon the last remaining droid, destroying it in the process.
- Seem's like the last of the f"%ers here. - Dorian said after wiping his forehead. - You stay here and try to figure out what's the deal with this room, I'll go help out our scaly friend.
Sage just nodded, after looking for her destroyed drone, and Dorian rushed to help Jakeeus and his squad.
((If Gryphs doesn't respond soon, I'm gonna auto her character for a bit))

One of the droids became too close for comfort so Jakeeus pulled his knife and plunged as hard as he could between the segments of the neck, severing several cables, then finished off the droid with a shot where he made the hole.

-Aha, I should pitch the idea for a headless droid to an engineer, those would be really a pain in the ass!- He exclaimed after watching the droid falling limp.

While the fight was still going on this opening allowed the group to spread to the left side of the room, partially encircling the remaining security droids.

-A'ight lads, let these heaps of scrap eat some plasma fire!-

Dorian rushed in to help out Jakeeus' squad. He arrived at their loction just as the squad was finishing off the droids. With a couple of shots from Dorian's weapons, the firefight in this chamber was done for.
With the droids now destroyed, the crew could examine the chamber in higher detail. It seemed to be an armory of sorts, as there were lockers and gun racks, mostly empty ones, but there did were a lot of damaged alien guns scattered around, few intact ones too, many along the now dead troopers of the Argent Lance.

* * *
Veeri's squad had, after a lengthy firefight, dispatched of the security droids of the alien structure. The stasis pod chamber was now cleared, and the squad could examine it in higher detail. There were plenty of corpses of the Argent Lance soldiers.
In her typical manner, she reported her finds to Dorian.
* * *
- Sage here - Sage contacted Dorian just after Veeri's report. - The chamber we've cleared is a control room of sorts. I think you're right captain, this is indeed a starship, as I can see some controls oddly familiar to a ship's controls.
- I f"%ing knew it - Dorian said. - You lads wrap up here - He said to Jakeeus - I need to see what the fox has found. Seems more important than some guns, maybe it'll say why Atlas wants this heap of alien junk so much.

He and his group started inspecting the alien weapons and the droid remains to see whether they could obtain enough material for a deeper analysis.

- F!#%ing amazing - Dorian said while looking at the intact stasis pod. - Intact, and still powered on. Do you think that the being inside is still alive? - He asked his crewmates, and got a lot of guesses and shrugs for an answer.
- Get Tormidal on site, I want her to examine one of our finds - Dorian had contacted his ship.
He then sat down on a pile of rubble in the chamber with his hand around his head. He was clearly having a moral dilemma of sort.
In his youth, when his father was still alive, Dorian dabbled in human trafficking. And not just slaves to the remote worlds of the Outskirts. He smuggled people as well. Various political dissidents, people that oppose any of the major corporations, you name it.
While 10 million federal credits was a fantastic sum, Dorian found it hard to overstep his principles. Although Veeri still pestered him about it from time to time, Dorian knew well, that both spice and people trafficking is and always will be a dirty business. Sure, the pay off was good, and one could make a lot of money this way, but, sometimes, you just have to draw the line. And the line for Dorian was these two enterprises. He swore to himself that never again he'll dabble in such business.

Soon enough, Tormi had arrived with her tools, and had confirmed that there is a being held in suspended animation, inside the pod, and is in fact alive. She also stated that the pod can be removed with no damage to the being inside.
The crew of the Black Pearl had then resumed the excavation. Intact weapons, alien etched with text, the stasis pod, all was being loaded onto the dropship of the Bloodhawks.
During the process however, two atlas dropships had landed, both marked with Argent Lance insignias. the crew had just finished loading the haul inside the Baldr.
When the landing party from them came out, the unexpected happened. The corporate representative that dealt with Dorian came forward and began talking.

- Mister Hawken, on the behalf of Atlas Corporation, we are terminating our contract with you. You are charged with killing the personell of Atlas and the Argent Lance, and plundering alien artefacts for selling on the black market. We have informed the Federation of your crimes, and their cruisers are inbound for this planet. surrender your plunder, and come forth with your hands up.
- Like hell we will. Go f#% yourself asswipe - Dorian said as he fired a couple of shots at the Atlas landing party. His crewmen followed shortly. Sage got onto the ship, to man it's on board weapon systems. She fired upon one of the dropships of Atlas, destroying it in the process.
- It's either us or them - Dorian shouted at the top of his lungs- Kill 'em off and let's get the hell out of here!

- How the f"$ do I know?! - Dorian said while firing blindly from cover - My guess is as good as yours fox. I had a f"%ing suspicion this was a set up, 10 f"%^ing mil from these corporate dickheads sounded too good to be true - He said while reloading his shotgun.
The dropship's heavy blaster cannons were dishing out a lot of punishment towards the Atlas crew, nearly pinning them in their cover.
Seizing a window of opportunity, Dorian ordered his crew to retreat back into the vessel.
The second that Dorian sat in the pilot's seat, he initiated the take off of the ship.

- They won't shot us down, we bear to precious a cargo - Dorian said while flipping the switches on the control panel. Sage then fired several of the missiles at the remaining Atlas ship, as Dorian took his own ship into the air.
I orbit, there was a single Atlas Cruiser, and evading it was rather easy for a ship the size of Baldr. Just in case, Dorian created a little ruse - He jettisoned a crate full of spare parts, as well as some explosives, emulation an explosion of the dropship, while he made his way back to the Black Pearl. once docked within his truty vessel, Dorian ordered Jeq to take the ship straight to Hyperspace, towards the nearest star system outisde of Atlas's control.
Only when the ship was in hyperspace, did Dorian allowed himself the now luxury of sighing from relief.
- This should buy us a couple of days at least. - He said. - Whatever is in that bloody stasis pod, sure seem's important. That or the feds finally pinched Atlas for trading in alien goods.
