Liona Tossed the command tablet onto her bed and swiftly hit the small touch panel on her closet, when it opened there was a lime green heavy suit,
thick at the neck for the helmet, the material looked soft but it was rock solid, capable of bearing life in space and providing proper support for
combat. Liona quickly assembled the suite and activated the pad attached to the wrist, the whole suit seemed to light up. As she left her room
switching the light off, she caught a glimpse of an old six shooter pistol sitting on a stand on her desk, after a minute of staring she caught
herself with a nod and continued out of her cabin.
As the large bridge door slid open Liona briskly marched into the bridge, shouting "status report!", "nothing new" shouted Defen in his english
accent, he was mounted on a stationary chair surrounded by monitors and holographic displays, navigating through them and adjusting charts."wheres the
security??", Nilo interrupted,"they are uhm, still in their cabins maam", "well well, 4 months and they still want to sleep?" said Liona,"i'll handle
this..." as she stormed down the hallway, Nilo gave a crooked smile to the rest of the crew as the whole bridge instantly relaxed.
Liona slammed the captains code into the security cabins panel, as the door slid open three men were hunkered down at a table between two bunks,
playing what can only be described as an outlandish farkle.The Smoke was thick and the captain could hint it wasn't just cigars, "who the hell do the
three of you think you are? contribute nothing up to this point and cant even be showered? Is that what i think i smell ?! Did you morons think this
was some kind of vacation? Gear up, you have Five minutes or your greasy hides are staying on board with no pay, got it!?"Liona stormed back out into
the hallway, door sliding down behind her...."sixteen long weeks, and we just saw the sweetheart, and all of the sudden now the dog comes out to
play."-Rigard began to laugh hysterically,"so what'd you do to her Goan?" the other two, specialist Thomas and Seargant Goan sat akwardly silent
prepping their gear, Rigel looked around,"what? sayin shes not like a rabid dog now?", "Rigel, sucker me out of pay again and im hitting you in the
face,i mean right between the eyes this time, got it? That Liona isn't one to keep pushing!"said Thomas-"wohh just like that time on Cardell right??
get out of here i was only playing"-said Rigel..Seargant Goan stared at him with stern eyes.."alright your majesty, i get it" said Rigel as he began
to prep his gear...
"captain i have just picked up multiple signals on board the cargo ship,from the looks of it we have life"-said Defen,"They're comm systems must be
down, why else wouldn't they have hailed us by now?"-asked Liona, from the other side of the bridge Engineer Stensen shouted "Captain, i think your
gonna want to see this". Stensen brought up a video feed onto the holo-screen..a fuzzy picture of a mans face appeared, he looked erratic and in
shock."This is Tel-v8-099 i repeat Tel-v8-099, we are in a full lock-down, we have sick crew members on board and our navigation systems have stopped
responding. we thought it was the storm but all systems are at one hundred percent, the Guard suspects sabotage, says he saw tw............" static
interrupted, as his face began to disappear off the screen.Liona asked Defen "What the hell is going on? The storm should have fried everything.",
"well ma'am i cant get a clear reading from the ships diagnostic component, ill keep digging but something has it totally scrambled" Defen
said."Alright, Tennix give one final notice to the boarding team" commanded Liona.
Liona walked up to one of the side consoles punching numbers in, "Heeuvi, Itor.. airlock in five minutes!"- a muffled answer responded with what
sounded like "on our way"."Defen, whats going on with the interference, is there a storm?"-"no ma'am i noticed it a couple minutes ago, its slowly
been increasing but i thought it was the sun playing tricks on the receivers, the static is getting thicker every second, in about an hour we will be
in the dark" said Defen, "are you saying one of those dead zones are forming right on top of us?", "wellll..technically .. yes." said Defen.
"Tennix!!" Liona shouted, "get all of the Heartford brats up here, now! we have an issue, a really really big issue!","right away captain" he said as
he charged down the bridge hallway.
Liona unclipped her communicator from her belt as she navigated through some charts on a side console,"Dr. Bana, we have reason to believe there are
sick on board the cargo ship, you will have to accompany us just in case", "Are you sure its safe for me to go captain?"-asked Bana with static
distorting her voice, "you will be fine, the scary part will be the airlock transfer.", "good" said Bana, "i have never fired a gun in my life"."well
lets hope today you wont have to bana, see you in a minute.", Dr.Bana put the communicator down as she blankly stared at her trembling
