Tragedy of the Guardian (IC/Meillur Only)

I-883 Orbit
Independent Starship Guardian
Grand Lord Leo Aldamar


Leo stood at the bridge of his starship, a proud vessel despite her worn paint and new civilian role, she had formerly been a warship I service with the stellar navy, before her forced fleeing during the Great Disaster. Now however she found use as a cargo vessel, which the stores for her torpedoes emptied and turned into large cargo bays.

He had served on this ship for many years, and had been through many a engagement with it, and he had known that at some point, someone might come looking, he had many a secret, both the information which he held in his memory, and the biotechnological secrets which lay hidden within his very flesh. However he had no way of knowing just how exciting his day was about you become, as he moved in to what he believed was an arranged smuggling pickup.

Destroyer Squadron 45
I-883 Orbit


Commodore Jochem Oosterveen was assigned with the DESRON 45 comprised of HMS Bullfinch, HMS Dove, HMS Violet and HMS Electra, four Halberd class destroyers tasked with anti-piracy operations within the Atmoran frontier, and roughly five days ago Commodore Oosterveen was tipped off by the SIVD of a potential pickup of illegal goods as he about to head out to track down and hunt the smuggler down, he received a rather unusual order from his Sector Commander accompanying him will be Lieutenant Franziska van Gerresheim, a SIVD spook.

As the DESRON 45 came within Commodore Oosterveen's flagship HMS Bullfinch's primary weapon range the rest of the 3 three destroyers began to spread out with the Bullfinch taking the rear, HMS Dove and Violet were taking to the sides of the smuggler's vessel, while the HMS Electra sped up to the front to cut off her escape route. The four destroyers were still far enough away from the targetted vessel that even if they knew they were there, the HMS Bullfinch could send a round straight through her hull to stop her from escaping.

As the four vessels began to close in around Leo's vessel, Lieutenant Gerreshiem was getting in her combat armour along with a platoon from AESOP Red Team, as the four destroyers were in range to launch their boarding party HMS Electra fired a round from her 6.1-inch railgun buzzing the ISS Guardian on its portside. As the Electra attracted the attention of the Guardian noticing it was a demilitarised New England warship converted to military use, he gave orders for his destroyers to proceed with extra caution as they closed in around the warship cutting off its escape. Commodore Oosterveen proceeded to open a communications channel with the Guardian "This is Commodore Jochem Oosterveen of IASC Destroyer Squadron 45, you are being ordered to surrender peacefully and allow to boarded and searched, any signs of being uncooperative with HM's Armed Forces will be met with forced." as he said that he ordered the captain of the Bullfinch to launch the 3 Pelicans in his hangar carrying Lt. Gerreshiem and Red Team.

One of the ships sensor operators, without so much as turning his head said "Four vessels just appeared, destroyer sized, atmoran by design, Halberd class"

Leo frowned, it would seem that someone had gotten word to the authorities, or just as possibly, this had been a trap set by the atmorans. He brought a holographic view of the area up, which showed the four atmoran ships, and he noted two of them coming alongside, one was trying to cut him off, and the last one was keeping its distance behind him, a bad situation indeed, while fully armed he would have had his torpedoes, which while they may not have won him the fight, they would have given him an extra tool, particularly the antimatter kind, that may have allowed him a chance to escape, however that was not an option now, so there was really only two options, fight on the ship, which would be bloody and would only result in his eventual defeat and destruction, or comply, which he could work with far more.

He looked over to one of his comns officers and said "open communications" without a word said, the channel opened, waiting for the grand lord to give his response.

He then stood straight and said "Commodore, this is...Captain Aldamar of the Independent Ship Guardian, we will slow and permit you to board, we are decelerating now"

he gave a nod to his navigations officer, who began using the forward maneuvering thrusters to steadily slow the ship, the light cruiser beginning to slow down, and with that, he nodded and the channel was closed.

He then pressed a communicator on his wrist and said "Vorsis, meet me in the primary hanger, no power armor or rifles, only pistols"

"Yes my lord"

He then left the bridge and made his way with great speed, and before long, he made his way through the blast doors of the hanger, walking into the large room, which had a few Vanguard shuttles, which had been repainted, remarked and had most of their weaponry removed. There was Vorsis and three other of his legionaires, standing in a standard grey jumpsuit that he had ordered the crew to adopt when dealing with outsiders, in an attempt to hide the true nature of the crew of the ship as much as was possible.

He turned his head to Vorsis and said "Cooperate, a fight will not end well for us in this scenario, if we behave we may either get out of this with the ship, or find an opportunity where they have let their guard down, and can escape"

The Legionaire simply nodded, and watched as a forcefield activated, meant to hold in the atmosphere of the hanger, and the thick armored shielddoors that protected the hanger when not in use retracted, revealing the cold darkness of space, and allowing access for the Atmoran shuttles.

As the three pelicans entered the hanger bay, Lt. Gerreshiem and her Red Team were doing a final check on their StG-21s, the pelicans then set down within the hanger as they made contact with the ground the ramps lowered letting the 20 AESOP (pronounced as Ace-Ops) operatives pour into the hanger bay with their assault rifles loaded with 7.62x51mm SLAP rounds, Gerreshiem had came prepared in case her targetted had decided to resist her commandeering of the ship and crew.

Gerreshiem emerged from the middle pelican wearing black/olive the Mark 71C advanced combat armor, as she stepped forward towards the giants in front of her with her StG-21 on her back and her P-9 sidearm at her side as she was face to face to Leo Aldamar she gave a slight smirk through her polarised black VISOR she broke the tense air in the hanger "Leo Aldamar, Captain of the Guardian, what a pleasure it is to finally make your acquaintances. I am Lieutenant Franziska van Gerreshiem with the SIVD and my acquaintances behind me are apart of the IASC AESOPs and I believe we have much to talk about."

Leo hid a frown and said "Very well" he then said "Where will this discussion take place, I assume that you will wish to have the discussion somewhere more secretive, I doubt such armor is standard issue amongst Atmoran policing personnel, as such I suspect that you are special forces of some type, a rather excessive response to smugglers" he then said "It isn't the smuggling run you are after, but rather, something else"

With a sly expression behind her polarised helmet, she responded to Leo's inquiry "Yes, of course, my compatriots are indeed not regular forces they're in fact special forces for the IASC excelling in commandeering a ship. And I, well all you need to know is my bosses in the SIVD are very keen on.... securing a valuable asset." she looked around at Leo's crew once again before she said anything further, scanning them up and down "I must say if it wasn't for what you are, the Squadron would've sent a MAC round straight through the hull of this fine ship of yours, but my bosses want you alive."

Gerreshiem motioned with her finger for Leo to bend down and lend her, his ear as Leo was at head level with her she quietly whispered in his ear "I know what you are."

He frowned, and it took everything in his power to keep himself from drawing his weapon and putting several bolt rounds into the agent in front of him, however such would have put his crew at risk, and so he restrained himself, however barely. He then said "Very interesting, i am curious to hear just what you seem to believe that I am besides human, but I will humor it if for no other reason than I have no choice"

Franziska noticed the small hesitation to act after she ever so directly after she revealed she knows they're Vanguards and his identity as a Grand Lord she spoke in a mellow tone "Yes, of course, humans like my compatriots and I..." she paused for a second before she asked Leo of something "I believe it would be most appropriate for you and me to speak more privately, there must a room nearby where you and me can sit and discuss further on why I came here. Of course, your crew and my compatriots will remain in the hanger as we talk." the tone of her voice made it clear that it wasn't a request to speak privately with Vex, she waited patiently for his reaction.

He nodded and said "There is a briefing room not very far from here, it will not take long to reach it" he could already see that the direction that this was heading would not be a positive one, at least not in regards to his crew. However all that he could do for now was cooperate and wait until an opportunity arises to act. He then turned to lead her to the briefing room and began leading the way to it, the Vanguards remaining in the hanger where they were instructed to stay.

As she made her way into the room she positioned two chairs so they'd be facing towards each other with the table in between them, she extended her hand to motion for Aldamar to sit down across from her, as the two were sitting across from each other Franziska took off her helmet revealing the youthful face of Franziska who's mother was Mizuhese and her father was an Atmoran noble, her brown hair was done in a ponytail to keep it tidy. After Franziska set her helmet down on the table in front of them, she leaned in with a small smile on her face speaking softly to Aldamar "Captain Leo Aldamar, let me reintroduce myself I am Lieutenant Franziska van Gerreshiem of the SIVD, Office of Special Assignment's Group for Special Tasks between known as who knows of our existence as the Ghosts. And it is my pleasure to say Captain or should I call you Grand Lord that and my bosses within the SIVD are very keen on acquiring you and your men's services.", Franziska leaned back into her chair looking at Leo with her own eyes without the visor in their way.

He sat down, and listened, doubting that the Lieutenant was telling the full truth, given the nature of the organization which she stated that she was working for, and he prepared himself for what was to come. He maintained a neutral face and said "Given the situation, it seems that the 'choice', would be either imprisonment, and likely forced induction into your order regardless, or a more 'willing' induction" he then said "However, such would leave no guarantees that my former legionaires would not be effectively enslaved"

Franziska with a serious face moved in close to Lord Aldamar speaking a reassuring tone "Lord Aldamar, I must say you have assessed the situation before you quite well. It is indeed true there are only two options before you resist and fail, for even you escape now the SIVD will find you again like they did now but the next time they find you will have wished you came in peacefully." she continued on in a more amusing tone "Which of course leaves the last option available to you, come peacefully and willingly with me into the SIVD, while I can understand your concern after all my organisation is known to use devious tactics to achieve their goals. However, Lord Aldamar you have mistaken one thing, Atmorans do not mistreat their men so I can assure you in the least that your men will be treated graciously, after all like I said you're worth more alive and healthy than you are dead."

Franziska leaned back into her chair with a slight on her face she spoke "Mijnheer I believe we both know it's our both vested interest for you to come in peacefully and pledged your sword to the Wolfic crown. With that being said, guessing from your body language I'd guess you want more reassurances from me or from my higher-ups that your men will be treated with the utmost care if my word is not enough."

The Grand Lord frowned, taking a moment to think and calculate different possibilities, however he came to a decision rather rapidly indeed.

"Given the lack of a real, acceptable alternative I will accept"

He had decided that the short game was no longer viable, he would have to remain patient for the time being, and wait for an opportunity, no matter how small, to present itself. He would cooperate until then, so as to try and create a false sense of security within those who seaked to use him and his legion.

Franziska smiled as she crossed her arms in a gleeful tone she spoke "A wise choice Lord Aldamar, quite honestly it would be honestly a shame if I had to do some wetwork to make you concede to my bosses demands but that is not the case, for now, is it? Lord Aldamar now we come to the second topic at hand, as we both know it is most beneficial for both parties for the ISS Guardian and crew to be listed as lost with all hands. A simple procedure really, so at this very moment Lord Aldamar as far as everyone who will ever find these documents about the ISS Guardian you and your men is hereby officially listed as dead."

She gave off a slight smirk as she said she leaned in closer as she took some Atmoran identification out of her breast pocket and slide it across to Leo "Captain as of this moment Leo Aldamar no longer exists he was killed along with his crew with all hands after resisting DESRON 45's attempts to board the Guardian. You are now Frederik van Hunze, your men will be issued their new identities when we reach the Argent Moon."

As Franziska was talking to Frederik the Atmorans had brought in a freighter that somewhat matches the specifications of the ISS Guardian , as the ship was in place Franziska pressed a button on her gauntlet sending a signal for Commodore Oosterveen to begin firing upon the freighter with salvos of tungsten slugs from the secondary guns along with a barrage of antimatter torpedoes at the freighter if there was sound in space you would hear the screams of her hull as the DESRON 45 proceded to lay waste to it in a matter of seconds.
