Chapter 1: The Crash

Prologue
The year. Is 2269 A.D. The Galaxy, controlled by two stalemated Superpowers, the COG or Coalition of Ordered Governements. Remnants of the United states and its allies and the Soviet Imperial Sector, descendants of earths Russian Soviets and all they had controlled after World War III in 2012. The world is filled with corruption and violance and for you, a Red Company Merc... Life could not be any sweeter. The violent world filled with jobs needing to be done, either for the two Superpowers of the Galaxy or the many independant governments you are never out of work. In fact your on you way to a mission now.
__________________________________________________ ________________________
The old, out-of-date, mass engine of your clients cargo ship hums in the background as you sit in the quarters provided, a grimy cot in a small cramped room. As you sit and wait for you shift guarding the 'precious' cargo of the old junker. After a moment of notihng, you here the static of an old intercom and the voice of none other than your Commanding Officer Emelio calling you all to the Mess for briefing and that youll be touching down soon on the mining planet.

OOCthe ball she must be set in to motion

Wojo paces the the ship scratching at stubble. He walks his way up to the cockpit Whats our inbound eta? he asks getting inpatient. after an answer he goes back and rechecks his gear. he cleans his jackhammer and makes sure it loaded with stander 12 gauge buckshot no use in using the more expensive stuff for a normal mission.

Leon doesn't shudder at being second in command but takes it just as honorable and respectable as any postion. He relays the time of the briefing to the crew and then proceeds to partake in his duties.

"Its good to be in the black...The smooth sensation of no hesitation...There is nothing like the feeling of this grand eternity here at our bow."


"Routine Check Alpha Golf Oscar Six Niner:
Emulsion Bays 1 Delt, 3 Romeo, 9 Whiskey in Collateral with Arft Deck O2 Reservoirs Juliet, Echo, Hotel...All systems check...Proceeding to Core Generators 50.70*...."


The stern voice emanates with more grammatical punctuation than that of the captain with a less monotone and receding vocal cognition. Like the evening solar wakes of Prometheus 7 with the astral winds rolling over the low gravity plains.

As you all persue your individual tasks aboard the ship your individual earpiece crackle with static before the familiar voice of your commanding officer reaches you, "Report to the Mess.. Rest of the team is waiting." With that the white noise ceases and the only sound you here is the dull throbbing of the engine.

Wojo board out of his mind heads down to the mess hall. futile trying to make himself presentable to his co he runs his fingers though his longer then average hair and adjusts his eye patch. ((any one seen Hoss Delgado form Billy and Mandy show. Like that but not as buff.))

As Wojo winds up in the mess hall he is accompanied by Leon and Piotr who both arrive at the same time, the two offering quick apologies to the CO, Emelio who is distinguishable in his Red Company battlesuit, his 1011-Mauler Shotgun resting on his shoulder and his helmet resting in the crook of his arm, the grizzled old mercs predetory features visible aswell as his green byonic eye. As you three make your way towards the main table the rest of the team is sitting at your recognize Travis, Sergei and Lorenzo, familiar troopers that have come with you before on various assignments. They all where medium battlearmor with single red stripes on their left sleeves donating rank, each one carrying a Kirov Assault Rifles. Suddenly Emelio speaks up "You ladies sure took your time... Everything go ok while you where freshening up?" With that he offers the three of you a crooked grin and motions for the Table, where Piotr and Leon both take a seat..

"Local Routine check took a little extra time today. Barnum in the loading bay iso chamber was sick so they had a temp stationed for him. And the temp was none other than Quigly the new initiate. But beyond that my derelict activities come at no avail. Thus, no trendy apology."

Leon takes his seat well under armed compared to everyone else in the meet. His high collared jerkin pilots coat readied for quick LnS with minimum resistance, and stationary at this hip is the small Mauser K8-9 that seems to have never seen its day but with the methodical routine cleaning Leon could make any battle worn weapon seem new.

Wojo grunts as he adjusts his weapon and leans against the bulkhead. So whats the job boss he asks wishing could pull out a stogy and take a couple of puffs, but they wont let him they say it strains the air filters to much in a closed system like a star ship.

Emelio nods as everyone takes there seats, thought the venerable old commander stays up looking to Leon he asks in his gravelly voice, "Ship performing well then?" then looks to Leon for a reply before shaking his head and addressing the group, "Time for that later... The job gentleman is simple we accompany the freighter down to the planet and guard his stock for a day maybe two tops before being transported back.. I know real exciting but he's paying really good.." After that he nods and looks over those assembled, shotgun still resting on his shoulder, "Now as you know Leon as my Sergeant will be acting as second on this mission, you troopers know how things work so if you have concerns complain to Leon if you cant find me... We'll be staying aboard the ship for the duration though I might be inclined to let you all trave-." In mid-sentance a large boom rattles the ship and the alarm system starts to scream and red lights flash before a panicked voice on the intercom lets in, "All emergency crew to stations, We've lost our engine and have come under attack by surface fire... I repeat we have come under attack all emergency crew to stations.. Everyone brace for the crash..." after that Emelio switches to his command voice, "Feck, get to the crew quarters and strap yourselves in, this bucket doesent have any defensive power so brace for the 'landing'.." With that he starts to say something in a different language obviously curses as he opens up the door to the quarters and waves you all forward, "Move!"

being tough is one thing, but Wojo know being lose in a orbital crash is like trying to find out what a pingpong feels like. he heads down to the fast drop bay and straps him self in. He may not know how to fire a ship gun, but once they hit the ground they will be on his level and thats how he likes it.

"Asseverating All Companies Parallel Quarters. As routine emergency tests Guys. No funny stuff or your dead!"

Jumping into his stirrups last he helps everyone safely mount in their places as he finally stumbles to his. Fastening the latches together and sucking in his breath Leon then monitors back over the men.

"Lets get a Head count... Upon successful crash all able company hands of bravo team assemble service supplies. That includes you too Mr. Wiggles. Aegis team will maintain crew integrity and safety. Next, Upon medical inspection from senior officers of Zulu those deemed capable to perform duties will begin integration protocol. And this isn't training so you only get one chance to screw up because then your dead... I wouldn't worry with whats outside the ship but whats going to happen inside it..."


Crashing was never a nice job but nonetheless a valuable field guide instruction went a long way. Like all instruments of guidelines the often lack the real consistency...the fact that things like these are unpredictable.

After seeing that everyone is settled, Emelio straps himself in and orders everyone to brace themselves before the ship is rattled by another hit from the surface. After a few moments the ship begins to shake and a high pitched squeeling is heard throughought the bay sending the old junker down to the plants surface. Emelio can be seen praying in what is undoubtedly Italian and the other troopers seem to be doing the same though in English. Finally you feel the ship slide, a piercing metalic squeel reaching all of your ears before one last booming shudder and everything turns still, after a moment Emelio opens an eye and looks around everyone seeming miraculously to be uninjured. "Alright! Unstrap and arm yourselves I doubt them sobs arent comin' ta finish the job.. Red Company Oscar Mike in ten Mikes." With that the grizzled old commander drops down to the floor, his heavy booted feet thunking against the metal flooring, his helmet moving to cover his head. The sound of the plasma charging up in his shotgun. "Red Company... Split into three squads, Leon you and Trooper Wojo take outside patrol, atmoshpere is good so dont worry, Travis you're with me well be taking stock of damage before securing the whats left of the ship, Sergei and Lorenzo keep the casualties safe.." With that he jogs off deeper into the ship followed closely by Travis while Lorenzo and Sergei start helping the ships crew.

"Nice ride guys and a successful crash I'd say...because I'm still alive."

He dusts off the debris and falls out of the stirrups then loads his gun.

"Alright Wojo lets take fort. This should survive standard protocol and I'm pretty sure your trigger fingers getting pretty hairy are you ready for a shave?"


He moves to the compression hall and manual overrides the door.

"Wojo move."

adjusting his eye patch and unstrapping himself Wojo cocks his shot gun and takes point and looks back at Leon smiling
Not on your life old man
with that he takes up a crouch position and opens the hatch and surveys the surfaces.

As you both exit the crashed junker the site of a barren planet devoid of plant life meets your eyes. While desolate and unfriendly the open, wind ravaged environment makes it easy to spot unfriendlies from a long distance away. As Wojo looks on, his not so keen vision still manages to pick up a trail of dust moving closer to your position outside the destroyed ship.
