PG8-K59 Alpha Site- West beach area
« on: September 25, 2013, 02:30:56 AM »

The western shores of the immediate Alpha site were only a few bare miles from the base. Tall trees somewhat similar in form to California redwood line the shore almost right down to the five mile long beach. It was quite dense forest underneath the giant trees, there were game trails leading everywhere and plenty of that; the Alpha base personnel had also made a road, hard packed with crushed limestone all the way down to the sandy beach from the main base road. Other than that, the area was simply a pristine seaside place that anyone could spend some time; to that point, there was a superb break on the northern end of the beach and surfing had been a topic of discussion among the younger members of the Alpha Site.

{Ziggesh-Borg} NPC
{Gemog-Borg} NPC
{Hakashk-Borg} NPC

A rustling in the bushes and more birds took to wing. A hushed curse in a guttural language and a another curse which sounded like pain. "Arggh! Gemog ya liddle mongrel, if ye be screaming like that I'll kill ya fer sure" The biggest brute said to a smaller comrade. These were Borg, there was of course a much longer name in their language, but the locals had trimmed it down to simply 'Borg'. All three of them carried what appeared to be Hozgura pulse rifles.

At over six foot something in human terms and almost as wide, the 'smaller' one simpered. "Ya shotted me ya big rat!"

"Yeth, he shotthed ya because ya disturben the birthds." A middle sized one, Hakashk said with an obvious lisp.

"I'm hungry, I gotta eat." Gemog replied, licking at the stub of his missing right forearm.

"If'n ya both don't shut it, I'll eat the both of ya. We're waiting for the oomans' they'll come...the Chief said they will come. So wait." The huge creature told them. Backhanding both of them in one swipe just for the sport of it.

<Saggitta exit ramp>

*10 minutes previously*



Flynn and Maria had gone straight from the bridge to the armory. There, they sought advice from a grizzled old veteran Marine Sergeant, the Chief armorer in fact. He supplied them with what would be suitable for two women according to their build, a rather smart guy. Maria being the smaller, carried a lighter pack, Flynn's a little larger. They both had G36K rifles with the M40 grenade launcher attached; both had Zat's and their own choice of side arms. In Maria's case, the venerable 9mm Beretta and both of them had a spare ammunition and some basic overnight rations and water. That was as much as the two of them could carry; not being full time soldiers, in Maria's case, she was a pilot before anything else; but she could handle herself. Three times while serving on the Daedalus under Steven, their ship had been boarded, twice by Wraith and once by the Alliance. The both of them were in the standard issue black BDU's of the SGC. Maria always though she looked ridiculous in a helmet, but the old sergeant insisted.

At the base of the ramp, they were met by a detachment of Marines, that was Linde's doing and Maria was grateful for it. She led them up the incline, back to where her and Flynn stood just a short while ago. From here they could see the gravel road leading to the beach and the heavy woods; that was their path. She turned to the Marine Lieutenant first. "I'll lead down to the tree line Lieutenant, from there I guess your boys can surround us ladies and we'll take it from there. I know this place, once we reach the trees, we have a good twenty to twenty five minute walk to the beach." Maria grinned at Flynn.

"Nervous? I am." She said honestly. "Move out." She gave the order as she had heard it many times and suited her words by leading them to the first line of tall trees.

Flynn had never had to dress in full gear like they were doing now, but she knew each part had its purpose and she wasn't going to argue.  Although she made a slight face at the helmet.  They did look odd, but surely had their purpose as well.  Flynn swung her pack onto her back and followed Maria.

She felt a bit better when she saw the Marines waiting for them.  At least they wouldn't be on their own.  Of course she was sure that her and Maria could stay hidden if need be.  Although she wasn't sending the men away.  Oh no, she was happy with the added protection.  She returned Maria's smile.

"A bit," she admitted. "Never done anything like this before."  Of course there was a first time for everything.  She stayed close to Maria as they set out toward the trees and beach where they had seen the birds.

"Wettin to Aguayo and Caldwell. We cannot get a solid reading from the drones. The foliage is too heavy and too damp. It's masking everything, including the IR."

"Then we're on equal footing Flynn. The best I can come up with is some rather nasty encounters aboard the Deadalus..we were boarded a few times in the past. Not a thing I want to revisit quickly." As pretty as the forest was and the view from this point of the beach, something about it gave her the creeps. She tapped her radio. "Copy that, we'll keep a sharp eye on things. It is quite thick in the forest" Maria waited for the Marines to move off, she hoped still, she was doing the right thing.

((OOC Robert can you NPC you Marines for us please))

Flynn shuttered a little at that thought.  "Never experienced that either.  My time here on the Saggitta is my first," she said.  She gripped her gun tighter, not taking any chances.  She hoped it would end up being a false alarm and just some native animal that had gotten the birds going.  "The forest is kinda creepy," she said.  Normally Flynn loved the forest.  She had grown up in the woods after all, but this was different.  Something didn't feel right.

<<four Marine red-shirt NPCs>>

Corporal Danielson nervously looked around him. When the LT had told his four-person team off to escort the XO and the science officer, he thought it would be a nice break. Then he had been told there might be hostiles in the area. No problem, he thought. We've got plenty of firepower. Then he had heard the TACO saying that they couldn't get drone support because the foliage was too thick. "Taggart, take point," he ordered the team's scout, a short slightly chubby brunette. "Aye, aye, corp," she replied as she slipped ahead into the woods. "Garcia, left flank. Bailey, right flank." He didn't like some of the noises he was hearing in the woods. But then he was a farmboy who had grown up on the Kansas prairies who didn't have much experience in the forest.

"I was born and raised in DC and until I went to the Academy, other than the parks in the city, this is my first time in a place like this." Maria replied, getting a shiver up her spine as she looked at the massive trees. She craned her neck back to look up, almost falling backwards from the weight of her pack. "God...I can't even see the tops of them." She whispered, afraid to startle anything. It was quiet, she always imagined forests to be noisy with at least birds. Or was that unnatural?

Falling in the middle of the Marines, Maria did feel a little more at easy. Their professionalism, gave her some confidence at least.

***************

After some walking, at a fairly good pace, they finally reached an opening in the trees, looking at a sparkling sea in the sunset. It was beautiful to say the least. "Lieutenant." She said quietly. "Shouldn't we have seen something? I mean anything at all? Birds, a squirrel....I don't like this at all. Something spooked those birds and if wasn't a danger they would have come back." She knew that much. Marine birds always stayed near the same area unless chased off by something.

Flynn fell into step beside Maria and with the Marines.  She wasn't liking the feeling she was getting from the forest, but she couldn't explain why.  "Normally I like being in the woods," she said, walking with Maria. "This is different though."  She felt like the trees were watching them, ready to reach out and grab them at any moment.  She shuttered at the mere thought and actually wanted to turn around, but didn't want to seem like a chicken.

"Colonel Aguayo, I grew up in the Wisconsin woods," Taggart said. "Near Lake Michigan. Forests do not get his quiet unless there is something very wrong." Danielson and the other Marines began looking around the party, every sense alert for something. "Ma'am, with all due respect, I suggest we get ourselves back to the perimeter."

Normally Maria wasn't one for allowing nerves to get to her. But this was different, they were on unfamiliar territory, they were a small band, admittedly with a lot of fire power, but for the first reason alone and being so far from safety, Taggart was right in his assumption. "You're both right. I don't like the hairs standing up on my neck as they are. There is something terribly wrong with this picture and I for one don't want to be a part of the canvas. Turn us around elTee, Flynn and I will bring up the rear."

With that, Maria ushered Flynn in behind the Marines a few paces back. The two women were side by side and Maria had the north end of the beach to her left as they faced the pathway back. "I don't want to alarm the Marines, Flynn. I'm supposed to set by example, but to tell you the truth, I feel utterly haunted just standing here and I have no idea why."

Flynn agreed with Taggart.  It wasn't good when a forest was so quiet.  It could mean trouble and being a planet they weren't familiar with wasn't helping.  Flynn turned and fell in step with Maria.  Hopefully they made it back to the ship without any problems.  She certainly felt uneasy.

Flynn glanced over at her friend.  "I know what you mean.  It's an eery, creepy feeling," she agreed.  Like they were being watched.  But by what or who?  She shivered at the mere thought.

{Ziggesh-Borg} NPC
{Gemog-Borg} NPC
{Hakashk-Borg} NPC

The three Borg sat in wait, discontented grumbling all the while, as they waited for the humans the Chief assured them was going to come. the forest was silent, the animals scared off by the Borg, or just wary of them. And finally, their patience was rewarded as they heard the sound of boots walking along the path, headed towards them. Rifles were checked again, as they prepared to move.

Then the humans came into view, well armed soldiers at the front, while two females in slightly different uniforms brought up the rear. It was apparent that they were wary, but surprise would still be on the Borg's side.

"Alroyt, me an Hakoshk'll take down them soldiers. Gemog, you keep the two pretties in back form runnin," Ziggesh said quietly, the two nodding in agreement as they took aim with their Hozguran pulse rifles.

The first sign the Marines would have that they were under attack was as pulse rifle blasts flew at them, three blasts seeking to take down the Marines now, so this would be easier. Hakoshk and Ziggesh would keep up their suppressing fire on the Marines, and Gemog turned his rifle to the rear, planting a few shots into trees to keep Maria and Flynn from running. The thrill of battle soared through all three of them as they launched the ambush. Now was the time to fight, to win honor and glory, and in doing so, strengthen their people.

It all happened so fast. One moment Flynn and Maria we about to follow the Marines back up the trail, the next moment all hell broke loose and a hail of weapons fire descended on their position. Three of the Marines went down in the first exchange, hopefully the others got into a good firing position, because Maria couldn't see. Her sight was blinded by the flash of an unfamiliar energy weapon and it had forced her and Flynn to fall back even further behind the Marines.

They were cut off, there was no way for them to get back into line with their escort and even as she heard the call from  Steven it was too late. Maria's eyes cleared just a little and she saw the hulking brute with the weapon in among the closest trees. She did what she was taught to do, pulling Flynn down with her. "We're cut off, we need to go around somehow." Maria said as she now crouched close to the ground, pulling Flynn as far as she could away from this brute. Pulling back on the bolt, now on her knees she started firing at the closest beast. So this was the Borg? Her stomach turned over, knowing that her life might end here and now. Two hits registered by the 'puffs' of dust off the thing but he still stood his ground. She grabbed her radio link and looked in dismay to see it snapped in half. Tears welled in her eyes.
