Tallellinian Sector: Vanir Home Base
« on: August 18, 2014, 03:52:21 PM »

 Situated in the outer edges of the Tallellinian Sector, this area was more like a mini galaxy within a galaxy with some of the planets as big as suns themselves. The Vanir home world is in fact one of eight moons that rotate about a blue giant known as Elfir, it is 2/3rds the size of Earth and the gravity is about 96% of Earth's so the impact is not felt so much.

 The primary base is located near the upper regions of the moon on a large super island that is more a continent in itself. Moderate in climate except for winters which are harsh and last for nine of the 14 months of one year. The base is sprawled over around 300 square miles of tall spires and structures that in a way mimic much of Atlantis.

Rob blinked as they reappeared in a new area. "Cloaking in place now," he said, hitting a sequence of buttons to make sure they weren't able to be detected.  "Ladies and gentlemen, please remained seated as this ride has not come to a complete stop," he said, mimicking the voices he always heard at amusement parks.

<From M35-117>

The jump to hyperspace with the Wildcats had been fairly normal, though Jack and AJ both were reminded of long endurance flights over the Pacific, just without anything to look at but the stars...

"Hobo 1-1, all systems green, nothing on RWR." Jack reported, looking around at the system before them.

"Hobo 1-2, ditto that. Liberty, it's your show, we're just here to smack anyone upside the head who gets out of line." AJ said.

 Blinking lights all green told Alecia that things were....all green, which gave cause for her to smile. "Hobo one and two, Liberty copy. We'll hold here while we do a scan of the place. Our most up to date intel tells us the Vanir are few in number and much of what they do and have is run robotically. So we're likely to come against little to no face to face contact, or at worst a million Genii clones. Major Lorne.." Her eyes were front and center on the planet/moon, the thing was huge but not even a blink compared to the actual giant blue planet that was running this system, almost as big as a small star in itself. "...start a surface sweep, we're looking for any possible large complexes."

 By now she was running through routine check lists, next was the escort's secondary mission. "Hobo, I think at this point your help will be invaluable, we'll need a probe of their defences from all three of us. We have enough EW gear on all three ships to be as good as being cloaked in any case; still these guys are pretty smart we can't deny that...Cadman, Ngyuen, you two aren't just passengers, look in the small locker attached to each side entry door, you'll find in each a pair of high resolution infra red/ night vision binoculars. Those attached to the gimble fitting on the door window so we'll need your mark 1 eyeballs on the job as we make our passes. Maxwell, beside the rear cargo door up back there is a larger locker, open it, you'll find a .50 caliber chain gun that fits into a pressurized port just below either of the rear windows, it has its own sighting mechanism, you can take care of that." Pretty much all tasks assigned now, all they had to do was commit.

 Lastly. "Rob, you'll be flying, I'm going to use my secondary sensors to assist Major Lorne, just so we don't miss anything...are we all ready to rock?"

Maj. Evan Lorne
Lt. Laura Cadman
Sgt. Robert Cheung
Cpl. Doyle Maxwell

"Roger that, Major," Evan said, and he leaned in, fired up the scanners for a sweep.

Maxwell was far too excited at the notion of being a gunner, and he bounced to his feet, headed to the locker to find the .50 cal.

Cadman and Cheung acknowledged Satterfield's orders, heading off to find their equipment and then settling in to be extra eyes.

Evan was tense, knew what the Vanir were capable of, hoped that they really had deserted this place - and that they'd left something behind.

Rob glanced over at Alecia.  Well, it seemed like she had everything in hand and knew just who she wanted to do what.  There was no reason to argue.  It was all very sound logic. "You got it, major," he grinned.  Rob loved flying so he wouldn't argue there at all.

"Liberty, Hobo 1-1. Instead of going hot, which as fun as that might be, the Wildcat upgrades did NOT include a cloaking device, let's try to be more discrete. I was rather clear with the Colonel that we're not doing this for shock and awe." Jack commented with a disapproving tone.

"Hobo 1-2 here. Recommend we stay weapons tight and only go hot if Alpha Romeo Two gets in too deep. Liberty, you can probably be better positioned to track their progress and provide immediate fire support as needed. If needed. Hobo 1, maybe better if we instead take the lead and do overhead flybys first." AJ suggested. She knew Jack was still bitter about losing one of his own during the Genii base assault, only worsened because the tactics used had been fueled by emotion over any operational logic.

"Concur, 1-2. Liberty, we are not here to light up the base, we are here on recon. Alpha Romeo Two is doing the leg work, we are only here to provide cover, and in your case, get them in and get them out. That does not happen if you turn the volume up to 11 and light the place up like Baghdad at midnight during the Gulf War before they're even boots on the ground." Jack added, "Find an LZ, we're going to break atmo and run for terrain masking altitude to do some recon. 1-2, let's go."

Jack banked his fighter towards the surface, with AJ off of his starboard wing going trail. The two fighters easily penetrated the atmosphere and raced for the ground. The two former Hornet pilots pulled up in sync just before they would hit the ground, and their fighters were now only a couple of thousand feet off the ground at this point. They then banked around and started towards the last known location of the Vanir base.

<Spirit Of Liberty>



 The youngest member of the team was still suffering the awe and shock of the 401's take of procedure then the subsequent jump into hyper space. This was effectively her first beyond planet space adventure since she arrived at Atlantis via the gate and had only ever been beyond that in a Puddle Jumper surveying the mainland from orbit. So this was something completely out there for her; despite her initial reaction she was liking it.

 "Copy that Major." Her small voice went over the internal radio as she followed Laura's lead, swinging the mechanism into place over the side door window. The hi-res binoculars fitted into place perfectly and she found she could move them around roughly 30 degrees either side as well as vertically both ways. She played around with the settings for a moment until it was correct for her eyes, focusing on one of the 302's to begin with. She could almost see the stitching on AJ's flight suit. Amazing! Was her best reaction.





 "Recon only Hobo. We follow the Scouts rule book on this one. When and only when we feel we can safely put AR-2 down we will do so after we make that decision jointly." Alecia pushed the 401 down after the two fighters keeping a distance of about three kilometers behind them. "Right people we're going down low and slow, eyes on the ball, we have one chance and one chance only. Any sign of immediate danger, we bug out." She glanced over at Rob, nodding to him. "Hold her steady Rob, center line flat at six hundred knots relative to the surface; we'll keep to ten thousand on the first sweep, then drop to a thousand when we've found a suitable place that looks inviting. We can assume the main area we need to find will most likely be the biggest." She twisted around for a moment. "Evan, keep a watch on the alarm system, as soon as you even see a red glow on the warning panel shout very loudly."

Rob rechecked his headings.  He didn't want to waver even a bit.  At least not until they needed to.  He glanced out the window though, wondering just what they were getting themselves into.  It was a bit eerie if he thought about it.

"Holding steady.  Everything still seems normal," he commented.  Except for the uneasiness in his stomach that was.

Maj. Evan Lorne
Lt. Laura Cadman
Sgt. Robert Cheung
Cpl. Doyle Maxwell

"Roger that, Major." Evan kept an eye on his panel. He glanced at Henschel. "Is it just me, or is it unnaturally quiet down there? Even if they abandoned the place, unless they took the care to shut down every single light and fan as it were, shouldn't one of us see...something? And they'd be fools not to leave security up. Plus they seem kinda spiteful, like they'd leave security up just to mess with whoever comes after them. But it seems awfully...dead. Or maybe cloaked."

Maxwell found the .50 cal and got it set up with quick, steady hands, a bounce in his step.

He reported in to Satterfield and Lorne. "Ready, Major." Two birds, one stone.

Cadman, with Nguyen on her heels, found the goggles and suited up, ready to assist.

She reported in to Satterfield and Lorne. "Ready to get my eyes on the prize, Major."
