(WPWT) USS Ranger
« on: March 22, 2019, 04:02:22 AM »



The USS Ranger is one of the BC-309 "Tempest" Class, an evolutionary design to the BC-304 in this timeline. In Prime timeline terms, the Tempest-class sits between the -304 and Dreadnought classes in terms of size, measuring from bow to stern at 525 meters. It carries 48 craft in its hangars, with F-302s and a variant that appears best described as a "stealth F-302", but also the F/A-305 Wolverine, which only just came into service in the Prime timeline. In addition, they do not appear to have the AC-401, instead having a different model of transport altogether...

Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.

The crew is a skeleton compliment for this mission, along with a small group of Marines for protection, though the air wing is fully staffed by Free French forces (this is best illustrated as all of the fighters bear the French Air Force roundel with a white Lorraine cross over it, like the Free French in World War Two).

"...that is a problem." Cam commented.

"Well, it was always going to be a gamble, but I was kind of holding out hope that Sam's Infinite Universes theory would pan out this not happening." Daniel replied.

The star had consumed the planet and the Ancient outpost there that housed the ZPM.

"Well. Gentlemen, we've come all this way for nothing. Would you..." Captain Pierce started before an alert chimed.

"Sir! Three Ha'tak vessels just dropped out of hyperspace behind us and are closing." An officer called out.

"Helm, bring us about and jump us out of here." Pierce ordered.

"The star's gravity well is preventing us from forming a stable jump. We got too close, we need to put some distance between us and the star to be able to jump." The helmsman reported.

"Get us clear then. Weps, go hot, hold the snakes off until we can..."

"Conn, Sensors. The Ha'Taks are launching fighters, bombers, and transports."

"Things just got worse. Captain, can we outrun them?" Daniel asked.

"Not the way they jumped in on us. They've been keen to capture one of these things since we launched them, they'll probably try to disable us and take the ship. Flight Ops, tell Colonel Berge to put her fighters in the air."

"Flight Ops, aye, sir."

"Beam in, beam in! Picking up two squads in Main Engineering, one Jaffa, one Human. Marks are of Ba'al."

"Colonel, you want to start earning your keep around here. Deal with it." Pierce said sharply.

"Let's go." Cam said.

By the time SG-1 got to Main Engineering, it was a slaughter in progress. The boarders were not interested in taking prisoners here, and it was just a small team of Marines holding the line. The only prisoner that the boarders might have taken, the Chief Engineer, chose suicide over capture.

The Jaffa wore equipment that looked like a best of both worlds arrangement of their own equipment and Tau'ri technology. Their armor was more streamlined, they wore camo uniforms under the Jaffa armor, and wore helmets more suited to combat than ceremony. Their staff weapons were no longer staffs, but looked like assault rifles with their barrels replaced with the buisness end of a staff weapon.

The humans, on the other hand, looked like Special Forces, wearing digital camo uniforms, and armed with a mix of South African and Israeli weapons. They moved with precision and speed, not a single movement was out of step or wasted on anything that did not advance their goal or position. Their uniforms bore the mark of Ba'al on their fatigues and body armor where normally one would find a flag of a nation - Ba'al was their nation.

"Sir, they're trying to disable our generator and our shields. If they kill the power, we're dead, if they kill the shields, they can beam more over. We got two groups of ten here, the Jaffa are setting up a perimeter, the SpecOps guys are sweeping the deck for survivors and planting their charges."

"Okay...we've got to get in there and stop 'em. Taleeya, Jackson, you're with me. We'll get ourselves some high ground and attract some attention our way. Vala, you take Gallagher, try to get in quietly and get the drop on them from behind. If anyone's got any ideas to spice it up, speak now or forever hold your peace because time's a ticking." Cam said, readying his energy rifle.

"Yeah, watch your fire in there. Some things in there don't exactly react well to gunfire." Daniel added.

"Thanks, Captain Ramius, I hadn't figured..." Cam shook his head.

Why does everything always happen when you're contemplating doing something entirely different? That was the question Vala asked herself after finding out the whole 'steal the ZPM thing from the dead planet' was put to the sword after discovering that the said planet had gone from dead to buried.

With watering eyes from the smoke and sadness of it all, Vala drew up her gumption once again to find determination in her survival instinct. They had little choice now but to go from defensive to hit a run tactics, a little like guerilla warfare. "I have one suggestion and its a long shot, couldn't we seal off an area as we confine them, then vent the atmosphere?" No, that might not work because if there are friendlies still in that section they'd die as well. "Forget I said it Cameron. Major Gallagher we need to find a service shaft and quickly." Even as she spoke Vala's eyes were surveying the area looking for the obvious pinned hatch that could give them an alternate route towards the rear section of the ship.

Would they actually get a chance to catch their breath now?  Taleeya hoped so.  They had certainly just faced a lot.  Of course it seemed like things were only going to get worse as the alarms started clashing.  Seriously?  Were they never going to catch a break?

She hurried after her team as they headed for the Engineering room.  Just what were they walking into?  She didn't have to think about it long as they walked into a blood bath.  She growled under her breath, swinging her staff around in a guard position.  "Seriously?" she growled as she moved to followed Cam.  "Will this never end?"

Gallagher suddenly found himself aboard USS Ranger. This was the first time had been beamed, and it gave him a slight funny feeling. Nothing bad per se, but weird nonetheless. He was glad for the moment of rest, however, and after being dismissed went off to the ship's galley to get a brew on.

While there, he refilled his camelbak with water. When his water stopped boiling he fished some tea bags out of his bergen. While he preferred loose leaves, a small bag of tea bags was easier to keep in his bergen. He poured a layer of milk in a cup and his canteen and added the bags. One for the cup, and two for the canteen. Then he added the water and the sugar.

He stirred the mixtures before letting them cool for a minue. Then he screwed the cap back on the bottle, and returned it to its pouch. He picked up his cup and drank the tea quickly. He was glad of the fact that the heat didn't really bother him anymore.

He had barely finished the tea when alarms sounded around the ship. The Major picked up his bergen and strapped it on as he was running back to the bridge. Gallagher was brought up to date by a junior officer while the boss and the ship's captain were talking. He then followed the team to engineering.

He inwardly smiled at the hunt for red october reference Doctor Jackson made after the summary briefing. He had nothing further to say, and when given the order to go he led the way to find a service shaft.

It took a minute before he found it. He was happy to find that he just had to pull the hatch open. He was also pleasantly surprised to find that the space was roomy, and that he wouldn't have to take off any of the items he was wearing.

He let his rifle sling and took the L3A1 bayonet from its sheath and crawled into the shaft. He looked back to see if Vala was following him, and crawled on. After a minute or two, he came upon another hatch where he saw a pair of feet in front. silently, he opened the hatch and recognising that the man stood in front of him was an enemy he stuck the bayonet into the man's neck. He then unslung his rifle and covered the corridor.

<Engineering Deck, USS Ranger>

"Well, we did kind of end up in a timeline where the Goa'uld landed on Earth, so probably going to be a few more firefights before we can go home." Daniel commented.

"I still want to find out what was going on with that timeline where the other SG-1 all had machine guns and assault rifles. Tough neighborhood, I bet." Cam replied as he took the lead into the room, moving to get behind a covered part of the catwalk railing.

"Let's save the infinite universe discussion for another day, if you don't mind." Daniel said as he took up position near Cam.

As the service hatch door opened, thanks to Gallagher, Cam swung up and began firing wildly at the Jaffa to get their attention. Daniel did the same, spraying fire with his P90 just enough to get attention but not to hit anything.

"Jackson, can you maybe cuss them out a bit? Y'know, trash talk them?" Cam asked, before swinging up to fire another series of energy blasts.

"...what?!" Daniel replied, now confused.

"You and Tal, get 'em riled up, call 'em hurtful names, throw out obsenities, just something that keeps their focus on us." Cam said.

Daniel was just even more confused. Groaning in annoyance, Cam swung up.

"Hey! Yo! Kree! Jaffa, Kree! Up here now! C'mon, kree!" Cam shouted before firing more at the Jaffa and then ducked back down. Some of the barks of commands among the Jaffa were a bit more angry in tone. And it seemed like Cam had a good deal more return fire.

Daniel now finally got it, and looked to Taleeya. "Okay, I get it now, just say whatever you think will get them fired up. Make 'em mad, I guess."

Daniel shouted something in Goa'uld that got a fair bit of fire thrown near Daniel for it, plus a few angry responses.

"That seems to have worked, what'd you say?" Cam asked.

"Oh, uh, I kind of insinuated that Ba'al engages in relations with barnyard animals." Daniel replied. It only now occurred that Vala probably heard him and she'd likely never let him live it down.

"Teach me that when you get back, will ya?" Cam said with a smirk and came back up once more.

Right behind Gallagher, Vala wriggled on as best as she could through the one meter by one meter square shaft. More than enough room but oh how her leg was burning; she shut that out mentally, a trick Teal'c had shown her how to do a long time ago. When the Major stopped to fire off a couple of rounds, Vala squeezed past him, only barely to go further along until she found another hatch opening. She peeked through the cracks where the metal didn't join and saw nothing then slowly opened that cover dropping it down by holding it with her hand so it didn't make a noise when it flipped open.

A dark mane of hair fell through the opening first, then the fair face of Vala Mal Doran. This whole while something was nagging at her and she realized hearing Cam, Taleeya and Daniel's firing adding to Gallagher's exactly what it was. They were inside, inside a space ship firing projectile weapons; just how long would it last? She pulled back inside tapping her radio. "Cameron, back where we were there is a blast door control if you can close that from the your end somehow, there should be a secondary switch somewhere up here in the ducts. I can do the same from this end so we seal those goons off and then we hit the freon extinguishers." As she spoke Vala looked around with her little torch following the miles of cables that she shared the space with, across from her she found the secondary control switch for the blast door below her. "We need to do it at the same time."

Taleeya glanced over at Cam.  A grin touched her lips.  "That i cam do with pleasure."  The Free Jaffa happily started hurling insults.   Being shot at put her on edge and she was ready to see the tables turned.   When they fired back she ducked before shooting and shouting again.

Covering the corridor, suddenly a small group of hostiles crossed into his view. Gallagher immediately opened fire, not even bothering to aim. He just needed to get rounds downrange so that the enemies would take cover so that Vala could do her thing. "Whatever you're gonnae do, I suggest you do it quick!" the Major yelled over the gunfire.

"Vala, this isn't a -304, the layout isn't the same." Cam replied over the din of the firefight. He looked over to one of the ship's security still with them.

"Can we purge these guys out with the fire suppression system?" Cam asked.

"No, sir. The SpecFor guys have gas masks, we've done that trick and a few others too many times." The Sergeant replied.

"Vala, you guys need to figure out something else on those Special Forces guys, alright? The fire suppression system won't get them, and they're the ones trying to blow up the ship. And make it quick, we really riled up the Jaffa and it's getting dicey here!" Cam replied back over his radio.

"You're the one who wanted to make them mad, Mitchell." Daniel pointed out as he was swapping magazines. "Wait...wait wait wait. Vala, get to the control room. That looks like it seals up."

"What are you thinking?" Cam asked as he came up to lay down more fire.

"Look, anyone else in there is already dead. Sergeant, does this ship have a way to eject potentially dangerous naquadah generators, like ones overloading?" Daniel asked.

"Yes, sir. It's inititated from there."

"Vala, listen to me. Get to the control room, we'll regroup there. We need to trick the computer into thinking the core is going critical and initiate the ejection process. Gas masks might stop them dying in a gas of halon, but it won't save them if there's no air period." Daniel said into the radio, "It's our only chance, because if we don't do something, they'll blow up the ship."

"Damnit, he's right. Sergeant, pull your men back and lock that door. We'll call when we're done, do not open it unless we call. Tal, let's go."

Cam took the lead, advancing to the next bit of cover on the catwalks to get them closer to their goal.

That made sense, two decks up if her guess was correct. Was she right though? A point was made this was not a 304 or as near as, some things may be the same yet many things even on a very brief observation felt different. Generally the layouts were as similar as you'd expect so she was going off that. "Understood, wish me luck. Major Gallagher I'll need you to watch my back, now where is an up ladder?"

Finding that took a minute, climbing up was another thing for as they passed the first deck above Vala heard voices on whatever deck area that contained; she stole herself to carry on as quietly as possible with each agonising step on the ladder a strain just to ensure she made no sound. At last where she guessed the control room was, Vala peered through the crack of the access panel with her vision taking in just one solitary guard as far as she could see. There were two locks, a twist and turn thing. With one gloved hand over the other gently she turned anti-clockwise with the first, then the second. Very slowly she pushed the door open an inch, then three, a little more until it was all the way. Now she had a major problem, Vala was not about to shoot someone in the back; to her that was cold blooded murder, so there had to be another way. There was.

Like a tippy toed sneak with the butt of her weapon raised Vala crept up behind the man bringing the reinforced end down hard on his head. The guard dropped going in the knees first with that bringing Vala's next reaction, hitting the door seal lock. A hiss of air closed the opening leaving her to work, hesitation in her mind though, did she possess the brains to do this, had she followed every lesson watching Sam work back in their own time? Swallowing hard Vala told herself she could do it. "I expect anytime with the next few minutes someone is going to be banging on that door, please don't let them in." Gallagher would know what to do, he didn't need a lecture.

Going over to the main control Vala looked closely at all the doodads, there were a lot of them yet it was quite easy to see which was the right one. There was a keyboard and a display no different to back home; once she had her fingers going over it, just ten seconds later she was ready to initiate. "Cameron I'm in. Stand by." She crossed her fingers and then pressed enter into the reactor core overload control. The bar graph output began to climb, it reached red in seconds followed by the expected alarms.

Taleeya glanced over her shoulder.  So they were moving out again.  It definitely seemed like they needed to move quickly if they didn't want to be pinned down in one spot and more then likely killed.  "Right behind you, Colonel."

She glanced around quickly, making sure It was clear before darting after Cam and Daniel.  She wasn't completely sure what they had planned or where Vala was headed, but it seemed like they had things in hand now.
