    You search around, finding a 0070 edition of UC HISTORY, the foremost reference on history since the Bombing of Laplace. Flipping it over, you begin to read.

    A few hours in, you come across a chapter omitted in the 0074 edition you owned as a child. It details the history of the Mobile Pod Series, including an incredibly detailed chapter on how many mobile pods were converted for construction work. You decide to hold onto it.





    Congratulations, you've just discovered your first secret plan! Many special units can only be created using these special plan, with existing units as a base, as well as parts obtained from destroying enemy mobile units.

    You call for someone, and, after a few minutes, the rugged man, South Burning, from before saunters to the door, waving.

    "How can I help you, kid?"

    You say nothing for a moment, before looking at him.

    "What are you planning to do with me?" you ask, your tone hard from years of dealing with bureaucrats and slave drivers. Burning chuckles.

    "Well, that's not really my call. The captain makes that decision. If it were up to me, though, I'd like to get you down to earth. Where are you from?"

    "Dublin," you say, deciding to tell the truth. "My father took me with him to Side 3 when he and my mum got divorced." Burning nods.

    "Well, we're just past Lagrange Point 2 right now, so it'll be a while before we can get you there."

    Well, you aren't going back to Dublin anytime soon, and there's no chance of you getting back to Side 3 (Not that you'd want to.)

As for the repatriation forms, we'll have to get out of the minovsky interference before we can request for HQ to send some. Mind waiting a bit?" You nod, as he begins to leave. "By the way," he says, "welcome to the Trafalgar." With that, he is gone, and you are alone once again.

    You lock the door, and turn on the shower. The hot water feels fantastic, and you can feel your muscles relaxing.
    A few minutes later, you walk out, clean and comfortable, clad in a comfy towel. Sitting on your bed, you meditate, just like you were taught. The clarity it grants you allows you to focus your powers, keeping stray thoughts from the crew out of your head.

    After about 10 more minutes, you hear a knock on the door. Standing up, you readjust the towel, and look through the peephole. Burning is standing there, with a federation female navigator's uniform. You open it up just enough for him to put his hand through to give it to you.

    "Thank you, Lieutenant," you say calmly, accepting the clothes happily.

    "No problem, kid. Just stay away from Monsha when you wear that. Ariwel has enough of a hard time keeping her dress buttoned around him." You shudder, and nod. With that, he leaves you to your business. You get dressed quickly; the uniform is slightly baggy, but comfortable.

    You call back Burning again, and ask him to get the captain's permission to leave. "Sure thing," he says, calling the bridge.

    "Captain Vismenda, she's asking to be let out,"

    "I don't see why not," a feminine voice says from the intercom. "Let her out. I want to meet her, anyway." With that, the call ends, and Burning steps aside.

    "Well, that's that. Enjoy some freedom. Mess is on sub-block 3, bridge is on Block E. This is Sub-Block B." He leaves, nodding to her as he turns the corner.

    You are now free.

    You head over to Sub-Block C, the engineering block. As soon as you get there, you duck to avoid getting your head taken off by an errant Mobile Suit arm. Looking at its source, you see a couple of engineers flinch away from a bullet lodged in the elbow joint of the GM that owns the arm. One of them spots you, and gulps.

    "Uh, sorry miss. Didn't mean to nearly get you there."

    "It's alright," you say, breathing shallowly from shock. One of the engineers, a young man, not much older than you, hops down, walking over to you.

    "Hey, you're the civvie we picked up! Welcome to the Trafalgar! I'm Ben, and that's Jerry." He points at the older, bearded gentleman, who waves halfheartedly, focused on the MS's joint.

    "Nice to meet you," you say politely. "I was wondering if I could check on my machine?"

    "Sure thing," Ben says, pointing you towards the hangar, which is just up the stairs. "There were a few dings from the Oggo attack, but that thing is solid. We just had to hammer them out." You nod, thanking him.


    You walk down the stairs, where you find your Elmeth sitting there, practically untouched. The paint isn't even scratched. Breathing a sigh of relief, you turn, catching sight of a large pile of scrap to your immediate right as you begin to go back up.


    As you go back through Engineering, Ben stops you.
    "Hey, you're probably getting hungry. We're going to the mess in about 30 minutes. Care to join us?"

    You're planning to go and meet the captain now, but you're free after that.

    "Cool, see you in 30 minutes." With that, he gets back to work, and you head up towards the bridge.

    A few minutes later, you make it up to the bridge, where you are greeted by Burning. He takes you the captain, a handsome Indian woman who appears to be in her late 30s. She smiles politely at you, and holds out a hand.

    "Hello there, Miss O'Clay. My name is Vismenda Thomas. I am the captain of this ship. You've been quite the unexpected gift, you know. We were not expecting our newly-obtained mobile armor to come with a pilot." You scratch your head awkwardly.

    "Er, yes..." Should you tell her that you were merely the test pilot, and had no actual combat experience? Or do you tell her a lie and say you're a proper pilot?

    You don't say that you weren't an entirely unwilling participant.

    "At most, 11." She whistles appreciatively.

    You think of Dad, of how he's probably in his lab, mulling over test data from your last training sortie, trying to find a way to compensate for your absence. After all, his precious data was always more important then you. You think of Ecce and Vice. Will they have to fight? If you have to fight, would you... have to fight each other?

    "If I don't have to fight, I don't want to," you say carefully. The captain nods, an understanding smile on her face.

    "We won't make you do it unless there is no choice. May I expect that of you?" You nod, eyes stern, and her understanding smile becomes an impressed one.

    "Good on you. Now let's-" You tackle Captain Vismenda to the ground just as a blast rocks the ship. "Front cameras on!" the Captain bellows, and the screen brings up the image of the the assailant. A Zudah is there, accompanied by 3 Oggos.

    "Ready the GMs!" the captain yells into the intercom.

    "It's no good! Engineering got hit by that blast! The GMs are too damaged right now! All that's functional right now are the Oggo we captured and the Elmeth!"

    You have to take an alternate route to avoid the fires in Engineering, but you make it down to the Elmeth and launch, shortly followed by Burning in the Oggo.

    Nope, we found 1 ton of scrap earlier. So we can repair it. And we should. Just look at the thing.

    Whoops, missed that part. I'm guessing that's where the scrap metal came from.

    What are GM's stats?
    >> Ori !cBEvEK4Lak 02/02/12(Thu)20:43 No.17781985
    RGM-79 GM
    HP: 20
    ARMOR: 15
    60mm VULCAN GUN (Roll a 5 or higher to hit, deals 5 damage, 7 if the enemy missed his last attack), BEAM SABER(Roll a 5 or higher to hit for 4 damage, 10 or higher to hit for 8 damage, 15 or higher to hit for 12 damage), 100mm MACHINE GUN(must roll a 5 or higher to hit for 5 damage)
    It costs 1 ton of scrap metal to repair. The same is true for any Mobile Pods. The Zudah will cost 2 to repair, and the Elmeth will cost 3.

    No. This Zudah is extra-damaged. Once it is serviceable, it will take 2 to repair when it is heavily damaged.
    >> Anonymous 02/02/12(Thu)20:50 No.17782052
    Alright. We should recommend that the GMs be repaired first, because the Elmeth costs more to repair, can take more damage even in its current state, and is only a single unit anyway. Lieutenant Burning's team takes priority here.

    >> Ori !cBEvEK4Lak 02/02/12(Thu)20:58 No.17782134
    We have 4 GMs inside. All are damaged right now. The Elmeth, however, is NOT damaged enough to require repair. Armor must be completely depleted to require repairs that cost resources You can currently repair all of the GMs in the ship's possession, leaving you with 0 Tons of Scrap Metal. You do not have enough metal anyway to repair the Zudah yet.

    As you return to the Trafalgar, you and Burning drop off the scrap and the Zudah in the hangar. You jump out, and run to Engineering, to check on Ben. You arrive just as the area just as the birdlime finishes sealing the hole shut. There is no one to be found.

    I think Shannon is simply latching on to the first semi-normal potential friend she's found after waking up to Monsha leering at her.

    You run as fast as you can down to Block C, the medbay. There's only one bed taken. Ben looks at you with his one non-bandaged eye as you come in. You wave at him, and your breath catches as he does the same with red-soaked, bandaged stump.

    "Sorry... I don't think I'll be able to make it to lunch..." he mutters, coughing. Your sadness and worry opens your mind, and you can see his memories. You see yourself reaching out for Jerry as he flies, silently screaming, into the void. You see the Beam rifle explode, and feel the burning pain on your left side, before you see no more. Involuntarily, the tears begin to flow.

    "Don't worry..." Ben mutters, smiling weakly. "I'll survive, and I'll be the one fixing your Elmeth whenever you bang it up." You smile at him, and take his good hand, squeezing it tightly.

    "I know."

    You keep holding on until they put the shroud over his face.

    I haven't found a way to contact him yet, unfortunately.

    You walk out of the medbay, hand still clenched as though Ben's hand was still interlocked with yours. As you walk out, Monsha pushes you aside, and you hit the wall.

    "Watch it, bitch!" he says, flipping you off and lighting a cigarette.

    "Leave me alone, Monsha. I'm not in the mood," you mutter, eyes downcast. Monsha eyes you, his bandaged lip curling as he looks into the medbay.

    "What, you sad because a fucking mechanic is dead? Big deal. We'll get a new one, they're a dime a dozen."

    >> Anonymous 02/02/12(Thu)22:16 No.17783003

    That is, discreetly use our Newtype powers to have a look at his mind. If our emotional state made us receptive to Ben's memories, it could do the same with regards to Monsha.

    Information is the most powerful weapon.
    >> Ori !cBEvEK4Lak 02/02/12(Thu)22:27 No.17783123
    You saw that dark place before. You don't want to go there again. It's a storm of mysogeny and narcissism. You look back at Ben, trying to ignore him, in his memory. Monsha catches you looking at him, and a sick grin slides up his face.
    "You liked him, didn't you? Ohoho, that's RICH! No one's going to mourn that red shirt piece of shit! All he and his buddy could ever do was scratch my GM's paintjob.

    As the shrouded body was led away to its final rest, the Irish Newtype sat in place.

    Like a broken doll.

    Inside her head swam the feelings and last memories of Engineer Ben Charles Stuart.

    What got to her the most, though; Was not the tearful adventure of leaving his parents at the spacedock.

    Nor was it the wrenching heartbreak of his 'one true love' leaving him a 'dear John' video as a man chuckled in the background.

    It was his last thought that froze her.

    He felt both saddened and guilty he would never take this breathtaking redhead to lunch.

    The emotions rolled and boiled inside her, his peace submerged under the rapidly unbalanced feeling began to boil over.

    Her scream pierced the inside of the medbay.

    Thankfully, the oldtypes thought it was just that. A scream.

    But even the weakest newtypes at side 2 could feel the anguish, anger, and most importantly; the saddness.

    Noticing the looks, you close your mouth, making facial gestures to indicate the presence and scrutiny of the other patrons to Ben. He gets the hint, and nods, staying silent as you walk to the counter, get some food, and eat.

    After a brief meal, you leave the mess hall, yawning. It's been a long day.

    "I promise not to peep," says Ben, earning a chuckle out of you.

    "Good night," you say, tucking yourself in bed and turning off the light.
