Topic: B Burnt Skies - Recaps
I'll be using this thread to recap sessions in an abbreviated manner. I'm keeping notes too, but having something shorthand doesn't hurt and writing it down helps solidify it in my head.
Bridge Crew of the GGV Ticonderoga:
Captain: Erren-Laiyerr [NPC]
Navigation: Hawkins Kelmehkeer [BDA]
Weapons: Arcturus Reed [Alex]
Sensors: Portk-Yongen [NPC]
Internal Diagnostics: Noah Owens [Shadow]
Communications: Natasha Selminov [NPC]
Fighter Coordination: Keller-Shedeer [NPC]
Other Crew of the GGV Ticonderoga:
Fighter Hangar Technician: Michael [Toby]
Fighter Briefing Officer / Relief Fighter Coordination: Koll-Cadaav [Vapes]
The Ticonderoga was assigned to guard a security checkpoint in Earth orbit. Cargo and behavior made it apparent that Rio de Janeiro is one of many rioting hotspots. MV Forever Young was caught trying to smuggle in firearms and explosives. Captain Laiyerr ordered its destruction. Owens sabotaged maneuvering thrusters so big gun couldn't be brought to bear, just point defense. Big gun on accompanying frigate GGV Bites The Dust destroyed freighter Forever Young.
Ti was contacted by Admiral Boris Lashnikov and told to reposition over Rio and await further orders. Owens further sabotaged Ti, called out by captain.
Captain Laiyerr: "You are relieved of duty."
Owens: "No, you are!"
Owens hits Laiyerr with a comically large wrench.
Allegiances quickly show themselves. Captain calls for security. Hawkins draws firearm and supports Owens. Shedeer draws gun at Owens, is shot by Reed before he could fire. Natasha talks captain down before he can do anything more. Owens places entire ship in lockdown, sealing the bridge. Yongen stays out of it.
After subduing captain and Shedeer, crew decides to leave through subspace making it look like a malfunction (as things are actually starting to get screwed up onboard). Evacuation is sounded and all except chosen few mechanics and one fighter squadron are evacuated in escape pods.
GGV Ticonderoga drills out of the system, going to an uninhabited system. It is now adrift in space, in questionable repair, and an escape pod is floating nearby that didn't make it out in time before being dragged through.
