You've made an under the table deal with the space pirate Felicity Prudence to help her break out on of her "associates" from Hegemony custody. In return, she promised to move her operations out of Accord space, officially becoming Somebody Else's Problem. Your superiors didn't seem to mind. Getting a notorious pirate out of their hair AND bloodying the nose of a rival? How could they pass it up?Now all you needed to do was to figure out what to do next.>Start getting the intel on the prison.>Try and recruit other captains to help you on this.>Other

>>46577142>>Start getting the intel on the prison.This is your daily reminder: Psykers, Psionics, and Psychics do not exist in the Galaxy. Please report any citizen who claims to have witnessed psionic activity, or anyone who claims to know someone with Psionic Potential to your local authority.
>>46577142>Start getting the intel on the prison.
>>46577176>>46577265>>46577288Why not get the intel after, and have the other captains give their input in the planning stages?
>>46577325If psychics don't exist, then explain how Tank spoke last thread
>>46577325That's about as likely as Arrogant Psychic Spess Elves manipulating everyone via mind control, possession, etc.>There's a space elf mind controlling our sister isn't there?
>>46577591Tank speaks the language of the heart ~ !! <3
>>46577632Last thing we need is Not!Magic Powers popping up in combatEspecially Space Combat
>>46577959eh, im banking on bio weaponry, then we have an excuse to have a Cole cameo!

>>46578146So kawaii it hurtsOnly tears express my loveFor that model ship <3
>>46577142You decide it's best to get some intel on the prison first. You head over to the Gullinbursti's main conference room, where Elizabeth was getting things set up. Sure enough, the moment you step in, you see a holomap of the target system floating in the center of the room. Elizabeth smiles as you enter."Captain! Good to see you!" "Elizabeth." You nod to her. "So what do you have?""Well, I grabbed all the data your clearance allows for, and it was quite a lot!" Elizabeth nods. "Naturally, it looks like we've done quite a bit surveillance on this system!""What do we have?" "Well." Elizabeth points to the holomap, showing a small, boxy space station orbiting a massive gas giant. "Looks like our target is Hellgate Station.""Charming name." You muse."And a well earned one, too." Elizabeth nods. "Hellgate is basically the stopping off point for prisoners arrested in the Frontier, before they're shipped off to more permanent accommodations in Civilized Space.""So we're on a time limit here, then." You frown. "That's right." Elizabeth confirms. "Judging from when Felicity said her man got captured, we've probably got less than a week to break him out.""That doesn't leave much time to operate." You sigh."No, and to add to our problems." Elizabeth snaps her fingers and dots begin to wink on around the station. "Hellgate has a permanent garrison of two Halcyon-class destroyers and numerous corvettes. There's also a nearby quick response fleet consisting of two more destroyers and a cruiser. They can jump in within half an hour.""Damn." You frown. "Anything other than a frontal assault?""Well." Elizabeth points to a bulk transport. "We can wait for the transfer convoy to arrive, and try to hit it in transit rather than the station itself. But that means we'll have to cut it really close, and if that transport gets to FTL with our man on it, it's as good as gone.">We'll attack as soon as possible.>We'll wait to ambush the convoy.>Other
>>46578420>We'll wait to ambush the convoy.
>>46578420>>We'll wait to ambush the convoy.
>>46578420>>We'll wait to ambush the convoy.We're gonna have to board something either way. Might as well make preparations.
>>46578420>We'll wait to ambush the convoy
>>46578420>>We'll wait to ambush the convoy.We're gonna need a couple things--some sort of gravity well generator to make sure they can't jump out of system, and a comms jammer so they can't hail for backup. Heavy armor for the boarding action, too, would be nice.

>>46578420>We'll wait to ambush the convoy.Something something u-boathttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0Y9ZQsAgveI
>>46578420"I think it's best to hit the convoy when it's leaving." You state. "That way we don't have to deal with breaching the main station's defenses.""A pragmatic choice, yes." Elizabeth nods. "Now, considering that one of Felicity's subordinates is involved, she's been inquiring if she'll be allowed to participate in the rescue. At your discretion, of course.""Hmmmm." You frown. "Do you know the firepower of her main ship?""Ah yes, the Lavender Kiss." Elizabeth nods. "It's a converted civilian ship, but observed capabilities seem to indicate that it's a destroyer level threat. It's her main flagship, after all.""I see...">The extra firepower will be appreciated.>I don't trust her enough to be watching our backs.>Other
>>46578722I like it!
>>46578771>The extra firepower will be appreciated.But prepare for her sudden but inevitable betrayal
>>46578485Eh, sorta prefer Colossus armor>>46578771>>The extra firepower will be appreciated.Well, considering our odds, I think it's okay just this one time. Just keep an eye on it.
>>46578771>The extra firepower will be appreciated.Our enemy can easily call in a cruiser for support. We need the help.
>>46578771>The extra firepower will be appreciated.
>>46578771>>The extra firepower will be appreciated.An extra gunhand is always appreciated.>>46578808You think we could get our hands on something like MJOLNIR Mk IV/V? The later shit just looks embarassingly tacky.
>>46578808Needs more armor
>>46578928>>46578933No better excuse for an armor dump
>>46578771>>The extra firepower will be appreciated.
>>46578933>>46578981>>46579111>>46579178Let's not turn this into an impromptu art dumping thread
>>46579215What was that? I couldn't here you over cute girls in armour.
>>46578771"The extra firepower would be much appreciated." You nod. "We're going to be seriously outgunned here, even WITH her help.""I see I see." Elizabeth smiles. "And now we get to the real heart of the issue. Who is going to handle the actual extraction?""What do you mean?" You raise an eyebrow. "Well," Elizabeth continues, "that involves figuring out who will actually be physically taking the target out of the ship. Will it be them or us?""Well, if we leave it to Felicity, then that means she's taking on all the risk, and if the operation goes tits up, we can lay the blame on her." You muse."But if WE do it, we increase our bargaining power." Elizabeth grins as her inner spook comes out. "And come on, do you REALLY think Felicity is being on the level with us about this? I mean, she refuses to give us any more data on him other than his cell number!">Let Felicity handle the extraction>Handle the extraction yourself.>Other
>>46579286>>Let Felicity handle the extraction

>>46579286>>Othermixed team, basically send Tank and anyone else who volunteers from our side except elizabeth so we can use her to keep track of both the hegemony's comms and felicitys in case of trouble.
>>46579364Shouldn't we be more worried about if we have consensual ear touching?With Amy we worry about "sudden but inevitable" betrayal.
>>46579286>>46579286>>Handle the extraction yourself.
>>46579478>Lose Amy from betrayal>Gain a pirate captain through ear touching
>>46579530And one more ship to add to our "Fleet".
>>46579286"We'd just have to handle the extraction ourselves and find out the, don't we?" You grin. "I guess so." Elizabeth chuckles. "I'll hammer out something with Bradford and see if we can't get a plan of attack. We've got a week of free time in between, so choose wisely what we do with it!" "I'll keep that in mind." You nod as Elizabeth strides out of the room, leaving you alone.>Go see if any of the other Captains are present.>Go check in on one of your crew (specify).>See if there are any available missions to take in the meantime.>Other
>>46579642>Go see if any of the other Captains are present.We'll need the support.

>>46579642>>Go see if any of the other Captains are present.
>>46579544>Infinite Stars Fleet Collection
>>46579544>>46579821Now we just need a bunch of other ships with different design aesthetics from all over the galaxy from all factions. Even the alien faction.
>>46579947What if Tank IS the alien faction?
>>46579975That'd explain why he's always suited up, why he never speaks, and why so far there seems to be only one of him
I swear I haven't seen this many Shadowruns since we were trying to figure out who, and what the fuck was up with Cole and her powers in CIMQ.First it was psychic powers actually being developed by clandestine groups, now it's space elves influencing people. At the rate we're going, I wouldn't be surprised if there were ties to Project MK Ultra.
>>46579642>>>Go see if any of the other Captains are present.
>>46580039It goes much deeper than that.Obviously the Majestic 12 are continuing their experiments on Sam despite the loss of traditional funding from Earth in the project.That's what the good doctor's serums actually are. Secret experiments designed to improve Sam as a living weapon.
>>46580039The Accord is secretly run by a cabal of aliens that are using the many corporations and research institutes to test their alien technology on humans. And the space elves are on the Frontier, trying to stop these secret aliens from complete their plan to summon the being that dwells at the centre of the galaxy.
>>46580039They weren't Psychic Space Elves at all! They were actually PROTOSS
>>46580158>what's the difference
>>46580039We fight our secret clone when?
>>46580183When we rescue our imprisoned sister from the psychic research facility.It turns out our Sam was the secret clone all along. The real Sam is actually a huge bitch.
>>46580131B-but the Elders see such potential in us! Why would we deny their will, when we could be So Much More?
>>46580158>we 'borrow' a psi blade for experimentation. Or a Warp Blade for MAXIMUM OVEREDGE.>>46580183>>46580209Something Something, SHADOW MOSES but on a Moon!
>>46580039>"Your sister was never real! All these years you thought you had one – that was just in your mind!"
>>46579642You decide to see if any of the other Accord captains were around to recruit. This was going to be a big mission, and any kind of help would be greatly appreciated. You exit the Gullinbursti and head into Eridani station, towards the regular hangout spot for ship officers. Maybe some of them will be present?>Roll 1d20

So what Shadowrun would piss off anons most? The one where Psi powers are being developed by ayys/the gubmint/megacorporations? The one where Spess Elves are mind-controlling people across fucking planets? Or the one where we're playing SPESS METAL GEAR, complete with La-Li-Lu-Le-Lo's?
>>46580468Spess Metal Gear, mostly because it doesn't really work without LEGENDARY SOLDIERS or at least a mentor who is actually our "parent" or sibling.
>>46580468Probably the one that seems to come out of left field the most....NOTHING WEIRD HAPPENING.
>>46580274Unfortunately, the bar was practically a ghost town. It looked like you came at a bad time, with the other captains presumably all being off on assignment. However, there was only one Captain present.Molly.She was sitting at the bar, sucking her cocktail through a straw as her feet swung back and forth casually on the high bar stool. The sight would have been incredibly cute if you hadn't known about her true circumstances."Hey! Sam!" Molly waves at you, referring to extremely casually like she was already your friend. "Back so soon? You totally demolish those pirates?""Well, uh, actually, we kinda made a deal with them." You say sheepishly."Ooooooooh. Well, I guess we can't all be perfect!" Molly shrugs. "I personally would've blasted them all! Pew pew!"You genuinely wonder if Molly was really as mentally mature as she claimed she was. >Might as well commit to recruiting her.>Maybe you shouldn't recruit her.>Other
>>46580468Any one of them that isn't at least well foreshadowed beforehand
>>46580500>Might as well commit to recruiting her.
>>46580500>>Maybe you shouldn't recruit her.Maybe on a different type of mission.
>>46580497No mysterious backstory at all would piss me off incredibly.I read this quest for the inevitable day it turns into Not!Firefly, right down to the vaguely explained psychic powers.
>>46580500>Might as well commit to recruiting her.You take the backup you can get
>>46580500>>Might as well commit to recruiting her.Goddammit Molls, we don't have time for bantz.
>>46580500>Other>Ask her what she's been working on.Need more info
>>46580500>>Might as well commit to recruiting her.
>>46580500>Might as well commit to recruiting her.Though we need to be upfront about her having to work alongside them.
>>46580500"So, Molly." You take a seat next to her and order a cocktail of your own. "What have you been up to lately?""Awwww, just doing some pirate hunting!" Molly giggles. "Even did a few cross border raids into Confed space! It's great to see their shitty ships burning in space!""I'm sure it is." You nod. "Hey, how do you feel about hitting a Hegemony station?""The Heggies?!" Molly's eyes light up. "Do I ever! Those guys are always sooooooo stuck up their own assholes!""Well it just so happens that we're planning to hit a major Hegemony base in about a week." You grin. "You interested in joining in?""Am I ever!" Molly then frowns. "Waitaminute. What's the catch?""Those pirates I was talking about earlier? This is part of the deal we made.""Eeeeewwwwww." Molly winces. "Can we blow up the pirates afterwards?""No." "That's no fun!" Molly groans. "Fine, if you want me to join in, you gotta do one favor for me!""What kind of favor?" You ask suspiciously."I won't tell till you agree!" Molly smiles smugly. "It's more fun that way!"Yeah, you're starting to really doubt Molly is as mature as she claims to be.>Fine, it's a deal.>Sorry, no deal.>Other
>>46580929>>Sorry, no deal.
>>46580929>Sorry, no deal.I won't say yes unless you tell me first, so it appears we're at an impasse.
>>46580929>>Fine, it's a deal.Lay it on me.
>>46580929>Sorry, no deal.
>>46580929>OtherTry to sweet talk her into telling.
>>46580929>>OtherPromise me that it doesn't include blasting the pirates we made a deal with, then we'll talk.
>>46580929>>Fine, it's a deal.
NOBODY RESPOND TO HIM
>>46581131I had to do a double take because I thought I had two tabs of the same thread open. It's just the same post in 2 different threads.fucking planefag takes forever to write.
>>46580929"Sorry, no deal."You cross your arms, trying to bluff her."Awwwwwwwww, you're no fun!" Molly pouts. "Fine! I was planning to go karaoke by myself, anyways!"W-what."Karaoke?" You blink."Yeah!" Molly nods. "An c'mon, an Earthling like you should know what it is, right? I mean, it practically originated on Earth! It's like, one of our oldest traditions!">I know what karaoke is!>...explain further.>Other
>>46581170Yeah, asshole's been posting in different threads all day

>>46581184>>I know what karaoke is!Is she going to make it "interesting" like taking a drink if we suck at a song?
>>46581184>I know what karaoke is!Time for Sam to reveal that she could've been an idol if she didn't join Sol Security
>>46581237>Strip KaraokeOkay to be honest that's sorta unfair when we're both wearing skintight suits and depending on the make, it might not allow underwear to even be worn.
>>46581392>Strip Karaoke>With somebody who's physically a 12-year old
>>46581184"I know what karaoke is!" You say proudly. "I mean, we used to have karaoke nights back in Sol Sec all the time!""Really?!" Molly's eyes sparkle. "Everybody else on this station are such prudes, they don't wanna sing with me! You wanna give it a try?""Sure." You shrug, and briefly if you should invite the rest of your crew to come over. You're pretty sure Molly wouldn't mind the extra company but...>Invite the crew!>Just keep it the two of you.>Other

>>46581756Blue. Seems to fit desu.
>>46581433"Hey, you don't mind if I invite some of my crew, do you? They love to do this sort of thing too.""REALLY!?" Molly's eyes sparkle even brighter. "Yes! The more the merrier!""Heh. Just a sec." You send a summons via your suit comm. Amy, Lida, Elsa, Natalia are instantly onboard. Unfortunately, Bradford was still in a planning meeting with Elizabeth, though he wasn't really the singing type anyways. Scott was kind of waffling on going or not, since you suspected that he'd much rather keep developing his ideal robot. You're pretty sure you can get Lida into badgering him to come. But what really surprises you is that TANK of all people sends an affirmative. He never came to past karaoke sessions!...this was going to be interesting."Come on, come on, let's go!" Molly tugs at your arm in anticipation. She leads you to yet another unexplored section of the station, where they apparently had an honest to goodness karaoke bar. You didn't even know one existed on this station!"Yo, Cap. Who's the squirt?" Amy asks as she arrives first.You watch as Molly's frown deepens.>Tell Amy that's CAPTAIN Squirt>Let Amy continue to dig her own grave.>Other

>>46581802"Careful Amy." You grin. "That's CAPTAIN Squirt to you.""W-what?" Amy laughs nervously, thinking you're bluffing her. ""Hahaha, you really think that?" You grin confidently, shaking Amy's own confidence."Hahaha, no, you... you can't be serious, huh?" Amy hesitates."Come one, Amy." You grin as you motion to Molly's now very stern expression. "Is this not the face of a Captain about to chew your ass out?""Um, well." Amy stammers.Molly then calmly hits a key on her suit, fully displaying her rank and credentials in holographic form right in front of Amy's face.You've never seen it go whiter than ever before."M-m-m-m'am!" Amy straightens up and hastily salutes."Dohohho, did Amy get herself into trouble again?" Elsa chuckles as she arrives with Lida, dragging a very reluctant Scott with them. "She looks like she's about to die from fright!" Natalia giggles. "Can I take the corpse for study?""Well now, your crewman just showed complete disrespect and insubordination in front of a superior officer, Captain." Molly turns to you with a glint in her eye. "That warrants some PUNISHMENT, correct?""That's correct, Captain." You nod in agreement as you glance at Amy, who was now sweating bullets.>DECIDE HER FATE>Let Molly decide her fate.>Other

>>46582284"Hey, Molly, you were the one wronged here." You turn the smaller Captain. "I think it's only right that you choose her punishment."And Molly laughs.And laughs.AND LAUGHS.Amy shrivels even more than before.>Quick, pick the MOST EMBARRASSING KARAOKE SONG YOU CAN THINK OF!

SING ABOUT YOUR ENORMOUS PENIS." Molly bellows."B-but why?" Amy groans."BECAUSE YOU GOTTA HAVE MASSIVE BALLS TO SPEAK TO A CAPTAIN LIKE THAT!" Molly roars."She has a point there, Amy." Elsa concedes."Just close your eyes and think of the Captain." Lida pats Amy on the shoulder."SHUT UP!" Amy snaps.Tank then arrives and waggles his fingers in warning, instructing Amy not to snap at her fellow crew like that."WHY IS EVERYBODY AGAINST MEEEEE!" Amy wails as the music starts."So, Tank, what motivated you to drop by today?" You ask your armored bodyguard as Amy alternates between singing and crying about how proud she is about her giant penis as the other girls hoot and holler.Tank just shrugs noncommittally."Giving me the silent treatment, huh?"Tank shrugs again."Yeah, you're right, that as kinda a stupid thing to say." You admit. Finally, Amy finishes singing about how big and great her penis is, and she just slumps into her seat, hands over her face in embarrassment."All right! Who's next, who's next?!" Molly asks, standing on the table with the remote in her hand. She was REALLY getting into this.>Volunteer to be next.>Suggest Tank sing.>Other

>>46582981"C'mon, Tank!" You toss a microphone to him. "How about a little duet?"Tank quickly shakes his head. He had only come here to observe."No such thing as observing in karaoke! You're going to sing!" You tut.Tank tilts his head, wondering if you're ordering him."Yes, that's an order, Tank."Tank slumps down in defeat and accepts the microphone."Good boy, Tank." You grin. "Oh man, now THIS I have to hear!" Elsa grins."Maybe I can finally confirm if he actually has vocal chords or not!" Natalia shudders with anticipation."I still don't get how this is fun."

>>46583167You immediately queue up a very old classic: a Nightwish song.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oXo_Vu0FyxwThe first part goes smoothly enough. After all, you weren't one of the best damn karaoke singers in all of Sol Sec for nothing! Plus singing the song like a million times also helped.And soon comes up the part where Tank would have to sing. You'd finally get to see what he'd sound like-And then Tank's helmet speaker starts blasting out the prerecorded vocal version of the song in synch with the karaoke music.That... that...CHEATERYou shoot a poisonous look at Tank as you sing your part. Tank just shrugs as his speaker continues to blare the canned lyrics. The rest of the crew just groans, regretting having expected anything else. >I gotta admit, Tank, that was pretty clever of you.>You realize this warrants more disciplinary action.>Other
>>46583388>I gotta admit, Tank, that was pretty clever of you.

>>46583388>Clever, but I'm still nightspot with you.
>>46583388>Well played, Tank.>But why are you even here if you're not actually going to sing?
>>46583418actually never mind. Ask if anyone else wants to sing with us.
>>46583388>>I gotta admit, Tank, that was pretty clever of you."That's pretty good..."
>>46583388"I gotta admit, Tank." You sigh as the song ends. "That was pretty clever of you."Tank nods with satisfaction."But that makes me wonder even more. Why did you come if you didn't have any intention to actually sing yourself?" You ask the armor piercing question again.Tank shrugs. He just didn't want to feel left out this time."...oh." You blink. "I guess that's fine then.""That's still kinda weak." Elsa sighs."And so unfair!" Amy pouts."My turn my turn!" Molly says happily as she swipes the microphone from your hand and starts the next song.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HgzGwKwLmgMShe was a surprisingly good singer, even if her vocal chords weren't quite fully developed to the full range a more adult singer would have. You can tell she's really enjoying herself. Hell, her energy is so infectious the rest of your crew starts singing along with her as well, save for Tank, who just shifts around with the beat.And that's when you get a call from Bradford.>Take the call.>Eh, it can wait.>Other
>>46583618>Take the call.Business.
>>46583618>>Take the call.
>>46583618>>Take the call.Terror mission?

>>46583618>>Take the call.Captains gotta captain.
>>46583618>>Take the call.It's probably important.
>>46583618Any particular reason for picking Don't Stop Me Now?
>>46583618>Take the call.I feel like Sam would be the most hypocritical person ever if she ignored XO. At least a niggling feeling that she was terrible.
>>46583618You quietly slip out of the booth while everybody is distracted and activate your comm, opening a link with Bradford."What's up, Bradford?" You ask."Captain." Bradford's stern voice responds. "Me and Elizabeth have been doing some digging into who Felicity was looking to break out of Hellgate Station, and I think we might have an idea.""Who?" You ask."...I think it's better that we speak about this in person." Bradford states.Well, that can't be good. You glance back at Karaoke booth everybody else was in. >I'm a bit occupied right now. Tell me when I get back.>All right, I'm heading over right now.>Other
>>46583819>>All right, I'm heading over right now.
>>46583819>>All right, I'm heading over right now.We infiltrating, or smuggling stuff?
>>46583819>I'm a bit occupied right now. Tell me when I get back.They'll still be in prison when we're done doing karaoke.
>>46583819>>All right, I'm heading over right now.gogogo
>>46583819>I'm a bit occupied right now. Tell me when I get back.They'll still be in prison, no need to rush.
>>46583819>All right, I'm heading over right now.Business before pleasure. Pop our head in and tell whoever's closest to the door that we'll be gone for a bit.
>>46583819>All right, I'm heading over right now.>OtherTell Tank to give our sincerest apology to Molly.
>>46583819You send a quick message to Tank and the others letting them know you had to step out for a bit. You head back to the Gullinbursti, where Bradford and Elizabeth were waiting for you."Captain." Bradford nods to you. "Good to see that you could arrive.""What's this all about, Bradford?" You sigh. "It's something that's very sensitive." Elizabeth says with a frown. "On a very personal level.""What... what are you talking about?" You ask, dread slowly bubbling up into your stomach like tar."We've been crosschecking every record and scrap of data on who's being held in Hellgate." Elizabeth explains. "Since prisoner turnover is so high, not even Accord Intelligence has up to date intel on who's in there at any one time, but...""...we found who we believe is Felicity's target." Bradford activates a screen, showing the mugshot of a dark skinned man with heavily dreadlocked hair. "This man, Genger Shore. Huge rap sheeting involving smuggling and piracy, but that's not all.""What? Why the hell are you guys beating around the bush so much?!" You exclaim.Both Bradford and Elizabeth look at each other nervously, as if wondering who would have the bad luck of giving you the bad news."Captain." Bradford takes the fall. "We put his name in the records, and he comes up in one that might be of interest to you.""How?!" You blink. You're pretty sure you've never even seen this man before."He was the registered navigator of the Solar Sailer." Bradford sighs. "The ship your sister was last seen on.""This man knows, or k new, your sister." Elizabeth concludes.And that's when an icy hand grabs your heart.>LOSING CONTROL OF THE SITUATION>Gotta stay calm.

>>46584246No... but that meant... Carly....The room begins to spin as you lose your footing, stumbling backwards as Bradford and Elizabeth both rush forward to catch you."WARNING, VITAL SIGNS FLUCTUATING BEYOND NORMAL LEVELS. ADMINISTERING SEDATIVE." Your smart uniform drones as you suddenly feel very heavy and drowsy."Captain! Captain!" Bradford cries as your vision fades out. You can swear you can hear Carly laughing somewhere.>Fight to stay awake.>Just let go for just a little while...>Other

>>46584329No, you couldn't fall unconscious. Not now of all times. You raise an arm and grab Bradford by the collar."Tell. Me. More." You growl."On it, Captain." Bradford nods. "Oh dear, things have gotten much more troublesome." Elizabeth sighs. Carly, what happened to you?>And that's it for tonight! As always, next thread is next week. Don't forget KanColle on Friday!
