After watching the tank leave Rashida decided she'd go get her belongings. Figuring she had enough time while the rest of the crew was on a merry tank ride.

Though she figured the ship would need someone guarding it, open bays tended to attract the worst kind of people. In fact she'd gotten on board her last ship through one.

Plus, There was no telling on Persephone. So with that in mind she sent a cortex message to her friend and asked if she could bring her stuff.

Rashida could track the merry tank crew by the cloud of dust they were kicking up, Tanks could be so much fun or an engineers worst nightmare , this one would need a lot of love

"I can't honestly say", Sue said as they drove along down the road, "I've never driven one of these things before, so I've got nothing really to compare it to".

She looked over the controls.

"Definitely a museum piece... but a very nice one at that... it moves as well..."

Re: Atlantis Cargo bay

Mark looks around enjoying the roar of the big engine and the feel of 32 tons of armor around him, plus stuff that goes boom

" She was restored on JangJyn and give to us for liderating a town with with, I have upgrades planned for this thing , such as cameras for when we drive with the hatches buttoned down , Oh take that road, it will lead back to the boat "

Mark didn't want to be away from the boat too long and he had to get his engineer up to speed with the boats systems and the plans for this tank

Re: Atlantis Cargo bay

The crew rumbled along in the tank and did a simple circle or ride around the block, Now Sue would get a real test of her driving skills, Reverse the tank up the ramp and into the cargo bay of the Atlantis

" OK Sue just take her easy backing up the ramp , it took me a couple of tries but I got it , Use the refernce lines on the deck and I'll watch our six "

Re: Atlantis Cargo bay

Sue drove the tank to the entrance of the ramp and then turned it so that the rear was facing the entrance... then she realised something.

She popped open the driver's hatch and popped her head out... noticing a big turret, not to mention the rest of the hull behind her...

"Er, Captain?" she asked, "How am I supposed to see the reference lines?"

Re: Atlantis Cargo bay

As the tank pulled in, it was observed by a woman who stood clear of the ramp on the ground, carrying a selection of luggage and cases with her.

In the tank Serena turned around in the commanders chair.

"Sue, I'll guide you in, but a back up camera should definitely be installed on this mobile heap"

-Srena and Someone

"I know what you're thinking. "Did he fire six shots or only five?" Well to tell you the truth in all this excitement I kinda lost track myself. But being this is a .44 Magnum, the most powerful handgun in the world and would blow you head clean off, you've gotta ask yourself one question: "Do I feel lucky?" Well, do ya, punk?" -Harry Callahan

Re: Atlantis Cargo bay

Mark looked up at Serena from the bow gunners position

" I'll take front and you take the rear but to the side, lets help Sue put her in "

Mark noticed a pretty looking woman with luggage at the entrance to the ship, they had an audience, With Mark and Serena's help Sue parked the tank perfectly, she had developed a good feel for the clutch and steering
Mark walks down the ramp to meet the lady with the luggage

Re: Atlantis Cargo bay

The woman looked the man up and down and stuck out her hand.

"Staff Sergeant Vasilia Rudel... Well former Staff Sergeant I'm here because you made a post about a job and I need a job. Went to look for you in the Casino, someone told me to find the big black ship, so. I found that. Anyways, you need a resume or something?"

Up Close the boxes all look like they contained military hardware of some sort.

Re: Atlantis Cargo bay

Pleased that with assistance she had managed to reverse the tank into the cargo bay without damaging it - or more likely, something else - Susan Ling popped open the driver's hatch and clambered out, hoping that she would never have to do that in an emergency.

She noticed the new arrival, a Vasilia Rudel and wondered if she would be their new boss. Jelena was not exactly command material, that was for sure.

Mark looked at the lady, definitely a military stance to her , he leans back on his hips and folds his arms across that big chest, the sleeveless overalls had some dirt from the tank on them

" Well Vasilla, I'm Captain Mark Ho Chang and this big black beast of a boat is the Atlantis , these folks are some of my crew, we're out testing our new, old toy , Shall we go upstairs to my cabin and chat then , I can help with some of the gear "

Mark was 6' 4" of lean muscle, it was no effort for him to carry some of the larger items as he walks he looks at the new crew and Sue

" Seal up the large ramp but keep the personal ramp lowered, and I want a ramp guard posted, Sue could you get that set up , I'll be in my quarters if you need me "

Mark indicates to Vasilla to step into the lift

"All due respect sir I can carry these myself" Vasilia said as she hefted the cases, the former staff Sergeant was built like a boxer and moved like one. Carrying the cases without a sweat underneath her patrol cap covered head

Taking a look at all the ships entrances and choke points she was making a strategic profile as she moved throughout.

Re: Atlantis Cargo bay

Sue moved over towards the ramp controls and pressed the button to activate the big ramp. It lifted up towards its sealed position with a distinct rumble. As it did, Sue began to think over a rota for guard duty on the ramp. Best for her to take the first shift, but then she'd have to get Jelena over as well.

Re: Atlantis Cargo bay

Rashida was down the personal ramp and receiving her gear as Sue took over, reentering the ship she said "Permission to come aboard!" With the fakest pirate accent she could muster.

Re: Atlantis Cargo bay

Sue looked at Rashida like she was a strange mail delivery and smiled.

"Permission denied", she said with a grin, "Unless you dance a jig, me heartie".

Who said guard duty had to be boring?"

- Sue Ling

Re: Atlantis Cargo bay

Rashida closed her left eye and tried to remember what a Jig was. Deciding she might as well try something.

She began river dancing.

Re: Atlantis Cargo bay

Sue laughed at this. She didn't thank that Rashida would actually do it... and wondered what Rashida would do when she was on ramp duty.

"OK", she said, "Permission to come aboard granted".

"Many thanks to yee" Rashida said as she walked up the ramp and towards the engineering bay. She'd have to get herself acquainted with the systems of the pseudo warship before she was any real use.

Re: Atlantis Cargo bay

What Rashida would find is a well organized engine room, every conduit was colored coded, the engine had been upgraded from a 5.4 L to a 6.8 L The engine room spanned at least two decks and from the looks of the various systems this boat could move and put up a fight
There was an internal grav spinner complete with a  redundant grav boot assembly , the capacitor units had been recently replaced with solid state caps , The boat had been well cared for and could use some more love

Aft of the engineering area was the shuttle deck and only one armored skiff sitting on its launch and retrieval cradle , they were missing a shuttle
It was time to check the ships sytems and see what their status was

Mark returns to the cargo bay all sweaty and spots Sue on the ramp doing ramp duty, he still remembered the times he did the same thing on the same ramp

Re: Atlantis Cargo bay

Sue saw him arrive and stood back slightly, away from his physically imposing form. She stood to a degree of attention.

"Well, things are going OK", she said, "Only problem was someone coming up to the ramp trying to sell us double glazing, but I told him we weren't interested".

- Sue Ling

Re: Atlantis Cargo bay

Mark cracked a smile

" Nope we don't need that product, the way I fly would peel er off "

Mark look out at the lazy goings on of the space port , much quieter than a core port and much harder to find new hires . as much as he liked to fly he needed a chief pilot to fly this thing and fly it well

" We need us a chief pilot, know of anyone looking for work, I got us a good engineer and some other good folk "

Re: Atlantis Cargo bay

Sue shrugged.

"Only people I know are nowhere near here", she said, "Sorry about that. I could go and have a look round the bars, see if someone is looking for a slot. Drinking dens are a common place for people who are down on their luck. Jelly will be able to tell you that for sure".

Re: Atlantis Cargo bay

Mark leans on the tank

" Probably too drunk to fly this thing , guess that means I get the hot seat , I love to fly and it shows, did I ever tell you of my first time flying this boat ? "

Re: Atlantis Cargo bay

As Mark leaned on the tank and chatted with Sue a loud sonic boom is heard in the sky , automatic alarms sound on the ship
Mark runs down the ramp, something was coming in hot, and he spots black smoke which could only come from one type of ship, or ships running without containment, Reavers, gorram reavers !

Mark is back up the ramp and glares at Sue

" WE GOT REAVERS INBOUND , BUTTON UP WE'RE OUT OF HERE !!!"

Mark hits the intercom

" ATTENTION ALL HANDS WE HAVE REAVERS INCOMING, ENGINEERING I NEED FULL POWER ASAP "

" Sue button up the hatch , I gotta rev us up "

Mark bounds up the stairs
Sue spots a busload of people heading for the ship, things began to happen fast, the bus stops and a lady rushes out

" Please, help us we need a ride from here "

Outside two of the parked ships are hit and explode, some of the service buildings go up

it was time to make a decision
