Chapter 1: Death from Above

The PCs finally come out of hyper sleep from stasis after traveling four years aboard the ship that they've been assigned to the battle cruiser called the Demon Wolf. To investigate the reason why the mining colony on the planet Edorus has abruptly stopped all communication and mineral shipments to earth. Upon awaking from hyper sleep the party is greeted by the Colonial Authority Military Rep and Officer of the Colonial Marines 1st Sgt David Anderson. The commander in charge of the mission to the planet. "Morning Ladies, I hope you all slept well while in stasis. When your refreshed, dressed and have eaten I'll brief you on our mission with in hanger bay 7. Now move out ladies! MOVE, MOVE!!!!" David informs the group.

Waking up from hyper-sleep is a gradual process. At first it's nothing more than a fuzzy sludgy mush of half formed thoughts as the stasis creating process is slackened and the human body begins resuming it's normal functions. After the pod detects that it's meat popsicle is sufficiently “warmed up” an injection of synaptic boosters and a carefully measured dose of stimulants bring the pod dweller back to wakefulness, if not exactly alertness. Eyelids are practically glued together and there's a slightly oily film on the skin. The smell that intrudes on the nostrils mixes a chemical tang with unwashed body. The chill is bone deep once one becomes aware of it.

With a groan Travis “Stacks” Osmund rubs his eyes until he can squint into the bright antiseptic lighting. ”Right.” Clad in nothing more than a pair of white boxers Stacks crawls out of his pod and snags the can of Recaff he'd left sitting nearby four years ago real-time. The lanky tech doesn't bother with the heating tab, just chugs it cold. The sludgy gritty mess doesn't taste much like the heaven that is coffee anyway, so it's just there for the effects.

He gives Sgt Anderson a mock stunned look. ”You mean we're here for a mission, and there's gonna be a briefing?” He polishes off the can with a small grin. ”We'd be in real trouble without you to tell us these things.” With a small belch he tosses the can in a receptacle clearly labelled Medical Waste and begins ambling for the showers with long legged stride, giving Sgt Anderson a genial bump on the shoulder with his fist as he passes.

Getting first crack at the hot water is well worth getting an early move on. The effects of copious hot water, soap, a razor for his scalp, and Recaff leave Travis feeling almost human.

A slight chuckle escaped Two-Bit's lips as his fellow recruits began waking up and getting around, it is so much easier when you just have your internal clock ding and wake up after a few years of autopilot. It helped that he had his body functioning the whole time doing basic maintenance around the ship but his mind returned to full function instantly.

Two-Bit watches the others getting out of hyper-sleep and begins analyzing each of them, Stacks had all the signs of a man who was too good at what he did to be in the service but not enough sense to know it.

Heilda Ravenoff

Like a light switch Heilda steps out on to the metal flooring. She had stepped in only moments before in her mind, and it was an interesting shift. She had been in statsis before, but this time she could feel how far away from home she really was. The officer's scream sounded like mumbles as she tried to ignore him. Shower, Food, Breifing in that order, she thought to herself.

With her bag around her shoulder, Heilda began her approach to the showers.

Heilda Ravenoff
Knowing the drill quite well, Heilda finishes her war shower in record time. She dresses in her formal attire. She prefers a black synthetic jumpsuit, with her personal logo on the front. Heilda has always had a knack for wearing for wearing clothes. Her curves and the tightness of her uniform, leaves heads turned. Hielda doesn't do it for the enjoyment of others, or some evaluation of self worth. She dons her jump suit, because men are stupid. They see things, and forget to think with the right brain. However, even after getting properly dressed she felt naked without her guns. She needed them, without them she was weak and frail. An easy target, that she refused to be.
After retrieving her weapons from the armory, she moved at her usual brisk pace towards the dinning hall. After acquiring the some "grub" she sits finds an empty table, and takes a seat. For being a highly trained, intelligence operative she always seems to be eating food below her station. It was in some way demeaning to her.

TwoBit watched the woman closely, her walk spoke volumes of her, first he knew she was aware of how attractive she was, second he knew she knew how to use that to manipulate men and women alike. I always find myself in such interesting company.
