I get up, rubbing my sore legs, and try to get my breathing back under control.
I should've worked out more instead of sitting in labs all day
"Now, maybe we've right to call Shebnii and make a dash for the nearest airlock, and get the iffreann out of - "
At this point I notice Caleb is hurt, and stutter
"F-frank, come quick, C-Caleb got shot!"

"Short one is Buck. The other one is Broom. I am not exactly sure what kind of stupid game they are playing now, but they look as inconspicuous as a murderer who returns to the crime scene still wearing his victim's skin. They are good at being decoys and causing all sorts of ruckus, though."
((outlander confirmed in IRC that Ishmael is speaking at a volume at which I would probably overhear him))

While still talking to Gene over the comms, turn around and shout:

"Hey, will ya shut the hell up!?"

Quickly say back into the comms, loudly and angrily:

"No, not you Gene! I meant, Hammerhead! GOD-FUCKIN' DAMN IT!"

Turn my comms off and jump up, looking accusedly at Ishmael and shout:

"Look what ya did now, you asshole! YOU BLEW MY FUCKIN' COVER! Who the hell even invited you here!? Go find your own waterin' hole!"

With crewmates like that, I don't need the Navy to take me down. Maybe it'd be best to bail? Let us see where it goes.

After that first chase through what felt like half of the station, Frank kneels there, bent over with his hands on the ground, panting heavily. His heart beating fast enough to make him worry about a heart attack and his lungs burning from the exertion. Right now he wasn't even completely sure if they healed up sufficiently yet or if he'd cough up blood in short order. [IC]Frank[/IC]

He props himself up a bit, straining to make out any more details about the figure next to the light...

"F-frank, come quick, C-Caleb got shot!"
The exclamation, unexpected in two ways, takes him totally off guard. He flinches violently and whirls around, crossbow halfway lifted-

*hiccup*

He scrambles to lift a hand to his face in the universal gesture of 'quiet!'

"Someone's there!" he whispers insistent, pointing at the person in the distance
"We have to get away from the entry!"
Apparently, sometimes stuff might happen.

Buck hears an angry voice in his head that sounds disturbingly like Ishmael's: "YOU DIDN'T HAVE ANY COVER TO BEGIN WITH! JUST SHUT UP AND KEEP QUIET NOW!"

Frank lifts a finger to his lips. "Someone's there!" he whispers insistently, pointing in the distance. "We have to get away from the entry!"

Saoirse and Caleb strain their eyes and are able to make out the same figure, sitting one shelf up on a stack of cargo shelving. The figure seems to notice they're there and waves a spindly arm at the three reprobates. Given the appearance (four thin arms, a mess of tentacles for legs) it appears to be hiltorel.

Aghast, think to myself:

"Get outta my head, you piece o' shit! I'll cave your face in if you try that mind-control crap on me again!"

Internally count to 5, and DO NOT think about anything else until the timer is up, lest Ishmael steal my thoughts
Once I reach 5 and haven't received any new thoughts from Ishmael, relax at having expelled him from my mind

Ugh, FSM this hurts! I groan in pain as I try to straighten up, putting a hand over my wound to try and slow the bleeding a bit. This time my mind is much clearer than at Nanyej, and I can almost hear my old medic's exasperated attempts to teach us basic first aid.

Saoirse calls Frank to get him to help, but Frank whispers back about someone else being there. We both look and I notice a many-limbed creature waving at us...it almost looks like the hiltorel we saw at Nanyej. Why it's waving at us and not attempting to kill us or just run away from the heavily bleeding, walking armory that is our squad is beyond me.

I stagger forward a bit, pulling a painkiller syringe and a coag booster from my suit and injecting them.

"I- ugh...I'll be fine, guys, just gotta let this stuff kick in." A small part of my brain notes with dark amusement that with the pain tinging my voice, I don't sound like I'll be fine.

I sigh in relief as the painkiller kicks in and straighten up a bit more. I decide to try talking to this guy, he doesn't seem too unfriendly...yet. Probably shouldn't mention that we're fugitives though!

I limp towards the alien, still holding my stomach. "Hey, we're not here to fight, just passing through. You, uh, wouldn't know of a way out of here, would you? We're...a bit lost."

Caleb limps towards the alien, still holding his stomach. "Hey," he says, after he's close enough. "We're not here to fight, just passing through. You, uh, wouldn't know of a way out of here, would you? We're... a bit lost."

The alien breathes out a puff of smoke and laughs pleasantly - a short, tinkling sound, full of mirth. "Lost? The way you're limping, that doesn't seem to be the worst of your problems right now." She's sitting with her tentacles dangling off the edge of the shelving, and she leans forward slightly, as though to get a closer look. "So, who's after you?"

I look ruefully at my gutshot. "Yeah, we're in a bit of a mess."

I think for a split-second on what to tell her...I can't just say we're running from mercs, no telling if that'd be too obvious...

"I think a few people up there didn't really like humans being around. We were just minding our own business when we got attacked. Bastards are still after us, too...you might want to clear out of here before too much longer. Know a place we could get out of here from, or at least lay low so they don't see us?"

I nod at Marina and duck behind some machinery, pulling my pistol and holding it at my hip.
If the owners of the voices enter the room:
-I slip by, into the corridor, and behind the closing door.
Otherwise:
-I holster my pistol and walk confidently down the corridor next to Marina.


((In the following, an "engagement" is defined as a situation which has already gone bad—I don't need to kill more civvies if we can bluff by them.))
If an engagement occurs while I am still hidden:
-I allow Marina to draw the fire, then catch the foe(s) in the crossfire with up to three shots with my pistol.
If an engagement occurs while I am overt, and there is only one relatively unprepared foe:
-I shoot the aggressor with my pistol, with up to three measured shots.
If an engagement occurs while I am overt, and there are multiple foes or one more prepared foe:
-I dive into cover.
-I pull my plasma rifle and set the foe(s) ablaze with up to three shots-equivalent.

"Ahoy! Buck. Broom? Finally you got here, ye Godless, filthy landlubbers!"
"This one had a lil' too much, dun' he? Fuckin' rookie."

Comm Hammerhead:

"You done takin' yer fuckin' piss already? C'mon, we're up at the bar, get yer ass over here! East elevator's fukced as usual, had to scream 'floor five!' 'till my throat's sore. Good thing we finally have some antidot for that"

Take another big swig from the cup, turn to Brom

if Gene responds and confirms that he's coming, tell Brom:
"Hey, you mind fetchin' that asshole? Stupid bastard always gets lost, I swear!"
Sit down at the table and sip my drink.
Examine my surroundings looking for possible exits, and anything that might be of interest to us.


If I am asked to retrieve Hammerhead:
Spoiler:      SHOW
"I suppose we can't just leave him out by himself. Consider it done!
He shall be returned before you can finish your next drink, or my name isn't Connley Mckale!"

Nod in Ishmael's direction
"I'll take care of that one while I'm at it. Try to talk some sense into him.
Evidently he's forgotten what line of work he's in, or he simply can't hold his liquor."

Approach Ishmael, and nod to the alien next to him.
"Sorry about this, old friends. My buddy here seems to have had too much to drink."

Pull Ishmael aside, and speak just loud enough that some of the others around us can hear.
"Listen, bub. Being that we've done some jobs together in the past, I'm going to let this incident slide.
That said, you can't go using our past aliases so carelessly.
Even as long ago as that was, there might be someone here who knows us by those names.
And as professional mercenaries, that could be a dangerous thing.
In our line of work, we understandably make quite a few enemies."

Quiet down to a barely audible whisper.
"I go by Connley Mckale now. Buck goes by Billy Butcher, and Gene goes by Ellis McCormick
You don't have to like me, but if you make any attempt to break our cover like that again, I'll shoot you dead myself."

Leave the bar and locate Hammerhead.
"Now is not the time to be zoning out, Ellis.
We need you at your best! Have to look good for possible employers!"
Escort Hammerhead to the bar, and sit down with him at our table.

If Buck does not request that I find Hammerhead, remain in my seat until I've had a few sips of my drink, whilst considering our current situation.
Nod in Ishmael's direction
"I'm going to deal with our friend for a moment. Try to talk some sense into him.
Evidently he's forgotten what line of work he's in, or he simply can't hold his liquor.
This won't take long."

Approach Ishmael, and nod to the alien next to him.
"Sorry about this, old friends. My buddy here seems to have had too much to drink."

Pull Ishmael aside, and speak just loud enough that some of the others around us can hear.

After my interaction with Ishmael, return to my seat and finish my drink.
Once again, take stock of my surroundings in case anything's changed.

shouting:
"BOB NO WANT FIGHT"
"BOB NO WANT HURT YOU"
"NOW YOU LEAVE OR BOB BOSS HURT YOU"
start sobbing

If the enemies cease hostile action or leave:
- find a back exit from the place I'm in and leave by that way
- then observe my surrounding and take cover again

If the enemies stay enemies ((:P)):
- give them a sweep with the minigun
- after attacking quickly look around to find an alternative exit
- keep the enemies at a distance by using the semi-auto pistol

If an enemy comes within melee combat range:
- hit him with a good strong swing of the plasma baton
