Unfortunately, the Zentradi were quick to retaliate, taking cover and firing at you and Lara, leaving the both of you no choice but to fire back. The room strobes with light from your muzzle flashes as you pour autocannon fire into them. In a few brief seconds, all the Zentradi are slain. However, most of the control equipment is destroyed as well, the consoles smoking and smoldering in the aftermath. "Well shit." Karla grunts as you see her and her team dash up. "This is going to be a problem. We're going to have to find a way to bypass the controls here...""How long will it take?" You ask."Too long." Karla says grimly. You glance to a still intact screen showing a NUNS frigate exploding from enemy fire. Even with Amy's songs supporting the push, it wasn't enough. The longer the fight dragged on, the more casualties the fleet would take...>Try to bypass the damaged controls. >You'll need to sacrifice the captured flagship.>Call SMS for support.>Tell Dorothea to use the Macross cannon.>Other

>>2612126Damn, there wasn't much you could do when it came to computer systems, especially when a good deal of them were already junked by cannon and laser fire. Then again, your own Valkyrie was basically a giant computer..."Karla." You speak up. "You think we could use a Valkyrie as a stand in for the control system?""It's... possible." Karla concedes. "One might not be enough. Two can definitely do it, but it'll put both of them out of action and II don't like the idea of leaving us undefended.""Don't you have anti-Zentradi weapons?" You ask."Of course." Karla motions to heavy rocket launchers her team were lugging around. "But it's quite a limited supply.">Just make do with one Valkyrie.>Use both yours and Lara's Valkyries.>Other
>>2612255>>Just make do with one Valkyrie.I hope we have enough RAM.

>>2612255>>Use both yours and Lara's Valkyries.
>>2612255You hesitate for a second, but seeing a heavy beam laser glance off the Pacifica's defense barriers is finally what convinces you to go all in. "Plug both our Valkyries in. We'll just hope we get lucky." You say. "Gotcha." Karla nods and turns to her team, who immediately start pulling cables out of the destroyed consoles as well as your Valkyries."Hey, don't scratch the paint!" Lara grumbles as she pops her canopy open. "Or I'll break your necks!"As you open your canopy and hop down, you see Karla's eyes glance up at your fuselage for a brief second. She then looks at you and grins as she saunters off towards one of the hastily repaired control consoles. Yeah, there was no way she didn't see the pinup of Lara and Dorothea on the side of your Valkyrie. Though you wonder why she didn't say anything about it...?Well, there were bigger things to worry about, and you had to focus. "Great, so what do we do now?" Lara wonders. >Grab a launcher and stay on guard.>You should move on ahead to scout.>See if you can help with the systems in any way. >Other
>>2612339>>See if you can help with the systems in any way.
>>2612339>>Grab a launcher and stay on guard.Guys she said it would definitely work with two, which means the main problem now is guarding this team with no Valkyrie to use.

Rolled 12 (1d20)>>2612339"We'll just keep an eye on things." You tell Lara as you open up a side panel in your Valkyrie, revealing a stashed away EX-GEAR suit for emergencies. Sure it didn't have any built in firepower, but it would give you enough mobility to stay one step ahead of the big and lumbering Zentradi. You also pick up one of the missile launchers specially designed to take out Zentradi. Honestly, it was more meant to be a weapon of last resort, but you couldn't afford to be picky right now. Meanwhile, Karla and her team plug your Valkyries into the system and dead screens start flickering to life. "Now let's see if this works..." Karla mumbles to herself.>Roll 1d20

>>2612433"We got incoming!" One of the team members yells, though you don't really need to hear the warning as you can feel the ground rumbling, a telltale sign of the giant Zentradi approaching. "Numbers?" Karla asks, not taking her eyes off the screen."Looks like it's just one." "Just one? We can take him!" Lara grins, hefting her launcher. "How about it, Cap?">Let Karla's team handle it. >Better go get rid of him.>Other

>>2612461You nod to Lara as you heft your launcher. "Yeah, let's do it. Better than just sitting around, right?""Haha, that's what I'm talking about!" Lara grins as she powers up her EX-GEAR. >Wait for the Zentradi to enter the room so you can ambush him. >Create a distraction to lure the Zentradi away from Karla's team.>Other

Rolled 6 (1d20)>>2612521"Follow my lead!" You yell to Lara as you fire up your EX-GEAR's thrusters and boost forward in a burst of speed. You and Lara barrel down the hall and right between the approaching Zentradi's legs. "HEY!" The Zentradi yells as he turns around trying to track your movements. Looks like it worked. Now all you had to do was keep ahead of him...>Roll 1d20

>>2612641Fortunately, the Zentradi is not one of the most agile creatures, especially when they were full size. He stumble over himself trying to catch the both of you, and Lara manage to zip away safely out of his reach. "Looks like we made him angry!" Lara cackles as you keep flying at full speed on your EX-GEARs. "Yeah, now we just gotta take him down!" You grunt. Easier said than done, though. Your launchers weren't exactly the most ideal weapons to use, but maybe you could find another way to neutralize him...>Try and fight the Zentradi. >Try to trap him somewhere.>Other

Rolled 1 (1d20)>>2612669As the giant Zentradi soldier lumbered after the both of you, you wondered just how exactly you were going to get him out of the way. You needed some way to get rid of him...>Roll 1d20

>>2612706"Lara! Let's trip him up!" You radio to her."Gotcha!" Lara nods, instantly understanding what you mean as she dashes ahead.Meanwhile, you spin around, your launcher aimed and ready to fire. The pursuing Zentradi is caught off guard as you fire, the missile spiraling and shrieking through the before exploding in the giant's face. The Zentradi roars in pain as the flash and smoke temporarily blinds him and he reflexively stumbles forward......right into the tripwire Lara had hastily set up. You dive for cover as the Zentradi's foot catches on the cable, causing him to lose his balance and fall forward, his face slamming into a wall and bending his head in an unnatural angle with a sickening CRACK as he goes down. He doesn't get back up."Nice shot, Cap!" Lara whoops."Nice work, Lara." You grin. "We are in business!" Karla cackles over the radio. "The weapons platforms are going offline and the fleet's advancing! Now we just have to wait for them to arrive and take over!">You should head out and help. Keep fighting.>You've already done enough. Wait for the fleet to arrive.>Other
>>2612727>You should head out and help. Keep fighting.

>>2612727"So Karla, you and your team going to be okay from here?" You ask."Yeah, we'll manage." Karla replies. "Better go and impress that Admiral of yours!"You don't dignify that with an answer as you and Lara return to your Valkyries. The cables connecting them to the consoles are cut and the two of you quickly boost out back the way you came. Them moment you hit open space and your battle computer updates the situation, you notice that the fighting has now gotten MUCH closer to the mining hub. With the weapon platforms down, there was nothing stopping the fleet from pushing forward, forcing the Zentradi defenders further and further back. At the moment, it seemed as what was left of the Zentradi fleet was preparing for one last, desperate counterattack against the Pacifica. The captured flagship was still inactive. Looking at your screens, it appears that what was left the crew was putting up a much tougher fight than expected, preventing the NUNS boarding teams from seizing full control of the ship. The resistance was stubborn enough that Kellerman was contemplating just scuttling the whole ship. As for SMS and their diversionary force... comms with them had been unnervingly quiet. True, the debris field played all sorts of hell with communication, but the lack of intel was concerning. What if the diverted Zentradi forces had turned around...?>Go defend the Pacifica.>Help secure the flagship.>Go investigate the status of SMS.>Other

>>2612778>>Help secure the flagship.If we can bring it under control it can turn the tide of the entire battle, then we can have time to check up on SMS
>>2612778>>Help secure the flagship.
>>2612778You bank towards the currently derelict Zentradi flagship, now surrounded by several NUNS ships as boarding teams attempted to secure the massive ship. You also noted the presence of allied Zentradi ships as well, their own macronized marines proving to be a much needed asset in a situation like this. "Kellerman, do you read me?" You query over the radio. "Kellerman's back with the fleet, so I'm in charge of the boarding actions!" Julie replies, the sounds of gunfire audible in the background. "What can I help you with?""Um, we were wondering what we could do to help secure the flagship." You say. "What's the situation?""Well, a group of holdouts have fortified themselves in the secondary bridge." Julie sighs. "We're trying to root them out but they're being pretty damn stubborn about it. Our guys are stretched thin trying to secure the rest of the ship's critical systems, so I'm a bit short on bodies right now...""Well, I guess we could volunteer." Lara mumbles. "Or maybe..." You pause. >Help Julie assault the secondary bridge.>Just destroy the secondary bridge. >Maybe Amy can help out a bit here.>Other
>>2612835>Help Julie assault the secondary bridge.
>>2612835>>Maybe Amy can help out a bit here.Tune her into the speaker system!
>>2612835>>Help Julie assault the secondary bridge.
>>2612835>Maybe Amy can help out a bit here.
>>2612835"All right, hold on, we're on our way in." You say. "I'll be waiting!" Julie says cheerfully. You and Lara fly down to one of the open hangar bays, which had been repurposed as a staging point for the boarding forces. allied Zentradi marines wave at you come in and helpfully point out the way to go. "Jeez, they really did a number on this place." Lara grunts. "That they did." You nod in agreement as your Valkyries slide through the halls. Everywhere, the walls were scorched and holed from laser and cannon fire, and there was blood spattered everywhere. Zentradi bodies choked the hallways and were hastily shoved to the side to make room to pass through. Perhaps once the ship was secured there would be enough time to process and properly dispose of them. It's not long till you see Julie in her battlesuit with a squad of Zentradi marines hold position outside of an open doorway. Every so often, laser fire would spit out through it, drilling into the poor wall on the opposite end. "Glad you guys could make it!" Julie says happily as her battlesuit waves. "As you can see, they're pretty well dug in there...""Numbers?" You ask."About a dozen." Julie shrugs. "Probably the last of the command crew.""Prisoners?" Lara asks curiously."Not a priority." Julie replies flatly. "We're ready to go!" One of the Zentradi marines says, he and a few of fellows hefting large shields to provide a modicum of mobile cover.Still, those things were basically just metal sheets. Maybe your pinpoint barriers would do a better job...>Let the allied Zentradi go in first.>You should go in first.>Other

Rolled 18, 11, 15 = 44 (3d20)>>2612881"Okay, we'll go in first and draw their fire." You offer. "Our Valkyries have pinpoint barriers built in, so we should be able to absorb their opening salvo so you and your guys can do your thing.""Awww, that's so sweet of you!" Julie says happily. "All right, we'll follow your lead in, then!""Heh, always charging in first, huh?" Lara laughs."You don't have to come along, if you don't want." You jab back. "Are you kidding? I'm having the time of my life!" Lara responds. "On your signal!"You nod as you power up the pinpoint barriers built into your Valkyrie and boost through the door...>Roll 1d20

>>2612930>Admiral>Having a quiet night after a large battle
>>2612933Certainly won't be quiet for Harry.
>>2612918You and Lara move in, pinpoint barriers powered up and raised. Almost immediately, a storm of beam fire meets you, slamming into the luminescent wall of energy protecting you. The barrier flashes and your Valkyrie shudders from each impact, but it holds. With the enemy Zentradis' opening salvo spent, Julie and her marines take the chance to retaliate, stepping in and unleashing their own torrent of gunfire into the room. Enemy Zentradi are cut down in swathes, but a few survive the return onslaught and you see one in the back preparing the throw a grenade. You could try shooting him, but you'd have to deactivate one of your barriers to reach your cannon. Or you could try tackling him or blocking the grenade...>Shoot>Charge>Block>Other

Rolled 20, 15, 1 = 36 (3d20)>>2612973Thinking fast, you deactivate one of your barriers and pull out your autocannon, hoping that you could shoot down the grenadier before he could throw...>Roll 1d20

>>2612978>>2612981First 20 in a MC quest. Feels good man.
>>2612975You fire one shot, and one shot is all you need. The single bullet flies out and strikes the Zentradi officer directly in the forehead. The officer only lets out a pained gasp before falling backwards, dropping his primed grenade among his surviving fellows and exploding them instead of you and your allies."Holy shit, great shot, Cap!" Lara laughs. "You really saved us some pain, there!" Julie walking up and pausing and pointing to your pinup. "Ohmygod is that a little Lara painted on our plane...?""Fuck." Lara mutters.>It totally is.>Uh, no, not at all.>Other

No matter the result, I hope Admiral takes it a lot better than Lara. Though, it may depend on how it's revealed since a flyby to the bridge in front of EVERYONE would probably cause her to freak out at us in private.

>>2613058No sex for a few weeks is a worthy price to pay to see everybody's faces.
>>2613025"Caaaaaap." Lara growls, getting ready to do some not very nice things to you. However, you don't give Lara the opportunity, instead blasting off and zipping through the the ship's halls, forcing her to follow you. "Thanks a lot, Julie, but we bettergetgoing!" You say quickly. "Caaaaaaap!" Lara yellows, now more annoyed and furious than ever. As you leave the flagship, you note that fighting overall has pretty much ceased. Not only was the flagship finally pacified, but the mining hub seemed to be in NUNS hands. At this point, there wasn't much to do but return to the Pacifica.And if that was the case, you might as well show Dorothea your surprise, right...?>Time to show the Admiral (and everyone) what you've got on your Valkyrie.>Maybe it could wait till later...>Other

>>2613070As combat operations began to wind down, you got the recall order to return to the Pacifica, which was well and good since that was what you were planning to do anyways, but with a bit of a twist!You take a deliberate route that would bring you flying across the bridge of the Pacifica, where you and the pinup would be well within visual range of the entire bridge crew. It would be a good old fashioned buzzing. "Wait a minute..." Lara grunts as she pursues you in her Valkyie. "Oh no, you aren't-""I am." You chuckle."You son of a bitch, Cap." Lara groans. But there's no time to do anything else, as you fly straight across the bridge, making sure to show the pinup to everybody present. Comms are silent for a few seconds, leading you to fear that nobody had seen what had just passed by, but thankfully and reassuringly, Dorothea's voice comes up with barely restrained fury an embarrassment. "Captain. Explain." She says simply. While her tone sounded outwardly emotionless, you got the serious impression it was taking up all of her willpower to not scream at you or melt in front of everybody present.>I'm not sure what you're talking about, Admiral~.>I'm pretty sure it explains itself~.>Surprise!>Other

>>2613097"I'm not sure what you're talking about, Admiral~." You reply with a taunting tone. "It's just an innocent pinup, you know?""Captain." Dorothea says as cooly as she can manage. "Once you land, report to my office. Immediately."Well... it looks you really struck a nerve with her or something. A bit hard to tell since she had to keep her mask of professionalism up in public. But in either case, even though the battle was finally over, things were just starting to heat up...>And that's all for tonight!
