“Life here, began out there”
Lieutenant Karl Valerii finds himself at the helm of a Raptor playing taxi driver for Rear Admiral Karak. also in the cockpit is co-pilot Ensign Karra Jarris, a young looking attractive Asian woman, Jamal Kenner, a knuckle-dragger, and the Admirals personal guards a couple of Marines.
The Raptor is being escorted by two Vipers piloted by Ensigns Tara and Sara Jarris, the other two thirds of the Jarris triplets. They are identical triplets but each has their own styles to tell them apart.
Since the Vipers don’t have FTL it is a few hour trip where the officers get to know each other a bit. Apparently Kenner is along to do a little maintenance on the station while the Admiral does his inspections.
Ahead looms Olymp station the station is an old installation that relays the signals of a chain of sensor-satellites surrounding Sagittaron. The Olymp does not use the Command Navigation Program (CNP).
After arriving the Raptor docks with the station and the Admiral, his body guards and kenner depart. Valleri takes the opportunity to grab some coffee and a sandwich with Kara in tow.
Once Kenner finishes his repairs, the team departs the station leaving the Admiral behind and his Marines behind. 20 or 30 minutes out their dradis picks up something on the edge of it’s range. It doesn’t take Valerri long to realize it’s some type of Jamming around the station.
As they close on the station they register 4 blips on Dradis which appear similar to Cylon craft. Once in visual range they realize it something totally new. With the Raptor being without weapons, Valerii begins a series of defensive maneuvers while Kenner uses the ECM gear to try and jam any Cylon targeting. It’s up to the escort to take on the Sparrows. Two-thirds of the triplets engage the enemy and with timely interventions by Valerri and Kenner are able to take the 4 craft down. Luckily for the fighter jockeys they were flying Mark II Vipers.
After Dispatching the Sparrows, Valerii docks with the station and they contact the brass. Major Taylor informs them that he and 4 others are in the security center near CIC, but that the Cylons have them pinned down and it’s only a matter of time before they breach the center. It is up to our Heroes to get to him.
Kenner then proceeds to get partial control of the stations video feeds from a terminal in the hallway he is able to see the two Cylons on patrol nearing their position and the four Cylons outside of the Security section. The Heroes set up to ambush the first two. With all the dead bodies lying about from the Cylon attack it doesn’t take them long to find some heavier ordinance, a couple of Marine Assault rifles and a few pistols with explosive rounds. The Three manage to get the first group in a crossfire and take them out though they realize these guys are a lot tougher than the old Cylons. Kenner always the optimist sees no problem taking out the last 4.
As they get closer to the Security center they find the body of the Admiral and his marines they were overrun trying to protect CIC. The comm gear is down, but Kenner finds a duty station still operational. Needing a little edge to help out. Kenner is able to McGuyver a power junction causing it to explode. This destroys one of the 4 Cylons and disorients the other three. A Party manages to take them down although all suffered some wounds of their own in this fight.
One of the Cylons was about to use some should fired weapon to blow open the door to security when our heroes interrupted. Luckily for the group the Weapon was not damaged when the power junction exploded. The Major and his men exit security and follow the group back to the Raptor.
The two Cylons not picked up by the video feed have found the raptor. as the group approaches one of the Cylons turns and throws a couple grenades inside the Raptor. With the Raptor destroyed. Kenner sees no reason to be subtle he aims and fires the rocket launcher destroying the last two Cylons.
But how do they get off the station? That’s when they are reminded that the Large Cylon ship is still docked.
That’s when the players get their first view of the Turkey. After dispatching it’s defenders, Valerii looks over the controls ad says he thinks he can fly this thing. It takes a couple of cracks at it before finally figuring it out. The Crew along with the two Vipers begin the long flight back to Sagittaron.
