JoeChuck Posted March 20, 2014 Share Posted March 20, 2014 SMAX "Holy Immotus! Whatever you're doing out there. Keep doing it," Malik belches over intercom, "systems are running better than they ever have." ,, The two mutants Smax immolated can still be seen glowing off in the distance. Nolo has effectively cleared a path straight to the Herc's wreck site with little threat of more floaters attaching to the ship. The two halves of the Herc are visible now and the a new ship approaches the wreck site. ,, This new ship is all white with silver filigree and the ship is a strange oval-shape. Nolo and Smax clamor back into the Hypewire to the cheers of the other Ares troops. If Smax had the capacity to feel amused, he would have been only slightly with the praise from these men. ,, The co-pilot taps Malik on the shoulder, "We're getting pinged by the Zion-Duster out there. Should I reply back?" ,, Malik nods to the co-pilot and steers the Hypewire closer to the Zion-Duster. ,, Before the co-pilot even starts to his reply the intercom system is overtaken with a message from the Duster, "This is High Cleric Gerard Hulivon. Are you friend or foe?" ,, Malik snatches the headset from the co-pilot, "We're here to help, but we ain't your friends." ,, Hulivon and Malik exchange for a while as the Hypewire makes it's final approach to the Herc wreckage. The two have agreed on a plan to extract the survivors and blow up the remains of the ship. Malik takes the Hypewire right to the front of the Herc and docks with it. The Clout does the same with the back half of the torn apart Herc. ,, "Smax, I don't know if it would be a good idea for you go aboard that Herc," Malik says will loading his mazer, "I think you should lay low and maybe figure out a way to help from the Hypewire. It's no secret that we stole you away from Black Helix today, but the survivors have already been through a lot and might freak out at the site of you." ,, Malik presses a button that opens a hatch to the lower part of the ship that seems to have a separate control console and displays for guiding the ship. ,, "Its a panic cockpit," the co-pilot comments,"in case, we're boarded by terrorists or taking heavy fire. It'll also detach and serve as an escape pod." ,, Malik chimes in, "I think you should be able to link the panic-pit's displays to the Herc's security cameras, if you want to try to keep an eye on our backs."
