    Pruitt, you are truly an expert! Kelt06

    Have you been struck by the jawbone of an ASS lately?

      When you call for a pickup a transport is sent from a small space station, General Bartholomew Hughes is at the station and would like to hear your impression of the Wanchi. A small shuttle (12 men 2 pilots) comes to pick you up. When you are returning there seems to be some agitation in the cockpit.

      “Come on control where are you? Control? Control…I don’t know what the hell they’re doing but there will be hell to pay.”

      “I’m not interested in dead sticking it with the General there so you better give us an approach.”
      Snoirot follows the proceedings with interest.

      "Dead Sticking ??"

      He looks at the pilot with an inquisitive, slightly worried look on his face.

                      Sorry but my first job is to look for survivors. After that I will obey orders from the highest ranking officer. You sir are a passenger nothing more. Now please sit back so that I can do my job.

                            Looks like something took out the station. All things considered, I kind of doubt were going to see survivors. Good thing we didn't get on her bad side...

                              As the shuttle approaches the station there is no evidence of power. No transponder, no radio comms, no lights nothing. The shuttle slides through the open hanger bay entrance and settles down to lock itself to the deck with its own magnetic clamps.

                              The pilot comes into the cabin and points to Gorman “Since you have the foresight to suit up you’re going to help me search for survivors. How much do you know about the model 23 space station?”
