Rather than the who's who of the people running the sector, instead it was you, Dorothea, Freyberg, and yet another new face, though could immediately tell that he was part of the fleet's fighter group from the pilot jumpsuit he was wearing. The CAG, maybe?"Captain." Dorothea greets with her her usual professional air. "I believe you already know General Freyberg. This here is our air group commander, Colonel Kellerman.""Sir." You salute. "Good to finally see you in the flesh, Captain." Kellerman nods. "Please take a seat."It's only now that you notice just how HUGE Kellerman was. His body was wide and thick from both a large frame and thick muscles. His rough, tanned, and scarred skin also indicated many years of experience and rough abuse of all kinds, both natural and man-made. He was also wearing a pair of stylish sunglasses. Whether it was due to a legitimate eye condition or just because he thought it looked cool, you weren't sure, and didn't think it was a right time to or place to ask, anyways. "Now that you're here." Dorothea leans forward, hands interlinked together as if deep in thought. "Can you detail exactly what happened out there?">We saw Zentradi and engaged them. Simple as that. >It was a walk in the park. >You should've seen everything through the drone feeds, right?>Other
>>1991280>>We saw Zentradi and engaged them. Simple as that.
>>1991280>>We saw Zentradi and engaged them. Simple as that.Short and Sweet.Now that we're rocking Yellow colors...Rochelle when?
>>1991280>We saw Zentradi and engaged them. Simple as that.
>>1991280>We saw Zentradi and engaged them. Simple as that.Since we got our paint job done for our plane, we now just need a matching pilot suit.Cue us playing: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NvTgRwJaAA8
>>1991280 (OP)>>We saw Zentradi and engaged them. Simple as that.>You should've seen everything through the drone feeds, right?ALL RIGHT IT'S TIME FOR SOME DECULTURE!>>1991295For a moment I thought we ended up with Edge Nagase's colors. And we will have to meet the bridge bunnies and other pilots/idols.
>>1991310And when we're not carrying an idol on our seats, we playing this?https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V4FrQBxLwTMOr this?https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sWUmIAs89n0
>>1991280>>Other"Yes sir. We received reports that zentradi battle pods were in the area and the decision was taken to engage them with regular valkyries instead of just leaving them to ghosts.The battlepods attempted to hide in the asteroid belt where they likely might have had a better chance against us in CQB, hence me and Lara decided to flush them out with a salvo of micromissiles before engaging them in the open.During the encounter, we also discovered a Recon variant attached to the squadron which was attempting to get away. Lara kept the rest of them busy while I broke away to engage the escapee so as not to let the enemy get any data. All targets were destroyed over the course of the mission."
>>1991310>>1991334Culture is not just limited to rock music and idol ballads, some prefer jazz music. Or SPANISH GUITAR
>>1991362Hmm, gotta prove ourselves a bit more before posting ACZ tracks.
>>1991280Anon >>1991339 gets my support. Anon understands how to answer a question.
>>1991280>>1991332>>1991339Yeah, flesh this out a bit more.
>>1991280Well, I guess I'll change my vote to >>1991339.
>>1991339Pretty good. As much as Lara's cute butt.
>>1991280"We found and engaged the Zentradi. Simple as that." You say. "Four standard Regulds and one recon variant that were lurking in the asteroid field.""And I see you and Williams eliminated them pretty handily." Kellerman grins as the holotable activates, showing the battle from the perspective of an observing Ghost drone. It was kind of surreal watching your own actions through a different set of "eyes", but you do see Lara making quick work of the Zentradi battlepods while you chased down and splashed the recon scout."Five enemies shot down with zero casualties. Not even a lost Ghost." Dorothea nods approvingly. "It seems you and Lieutenant Williams' records were not just for show."You stay silent, waiting to be asked to speak. "Now this isn't a cause for concern?" Freyberg asks, dabbing some sweat off his brow. "Zentradi being sighted so close to the Cluster...""They were engaged at our outermost defense line, five light years from the Cluster." Dorothea sighs, as if she had to explain this multiple times to him. "The reason for it was to give us ample warning to respond, just like how this situation played out.""Good, good." Freyberg sighs. "You know how it is. People hear word of Zentradi lurking on the borders and they start to get... antsy.""I'm well aware of the civilian concerns." Dorothea says curtly."Don't worry, it was just a scout party!" Kellerman laughs. "The Zentradi only respect strength, and such an aggressive response will put them off from coming back. For a while, at least.""Still, the fact they had a dedicated scout accompanying them is concerning." Dorothea frowns. "That signifies intent to map out our defenses.""R-really?" Freyberg pauses."That's a pretty big leap there, Admiral..." Kellerman frowns.>It's probably nothing.>Zentradi don't send out scouts without a reason.>No comment.>Other
>>1991501>>Zentradi don't send out scouts without a reason.
>>1991501>Zentradi don't send out scouts without a reason.
>>1991501>Zentradi don't send out scouts without a reason.The don't strike me as a 'tourist with a camera' type.
>>1991501"The Zentradi are a lot of things, but one thing they aren't is stupid." You cross your arms. "Despite being uncultured, they're still a military society. That means everything they do has a reason."Dorothea nods at that, while Kellerman just shrugs. Freyberg looks concerned as usual. "We'll step up surveillance patrols. I want you to double the number of Cat Eyes on deployment." Dorothea turns her gaze to Kellerman. "Can it be done?""Double planes means double shifts. We can do it no problem, but that won't leave us much of a reserve." Kellerman sighs."Of course. It's only temporary." Dorothea replies."If you say so." Kellerman nods and looks at you. "So how exactly will chain of command be handled here concerning the TSF?""Technically, they fall under your area of responsibility, but they answer directly High Command." Dorothea responds. "Which means they are under no obligation to follow your orders.""Typical." Kellerman groans. "And let me guess, all their orders are gonna be routed through that spook?""Agent Weiss is the designated liason, yes." Dorothea confirms. "I don't like her at all." Kellerman grumbles. "I've been getting a lot of complaints from my pilots about her, too. They always get the feeling she's snooping around.""Has anybody actually caught her 'snooping around?'" Dorothea narrows her eyes."No." Kellerman admits. "But you know what they mean.">To be fair, considering her line of work...>Best just to ignore her.>No comment.>Other
>>1991642>>No comment.>>OtherSympathetic eyes
>>1991642>Best just to ignore her.Spooks gonna spook. Even when you don't want them to spook.
>>1991642>>No comment.This session's Karla is real 'spooky'. Not the funny 'spooky' but the can we cause an accident to her level 'spooky'
>>1991642>To be fair, considering her line of work...
>>1991642You decide to stay quiet on this matter. Talking about spooks openly was always a dangerous thing to do, even it was just idle chatter."I'll keep that in consideration." Dorothea sighs. "Anyways, speaking of Agent Weiss, she and Amy have already taken a shuttle to Nabaal.""Really?" You blink. "Why?""Her idea. An effort to 'raise morale', Agent Weiss is planning to take Amy to a big meet and greet with the colony big shots.""Sounds like one of those fancy parties." Kellerman frowns. "I'll pass.""Good, because you're not invited." Dorothea smiles ever so slightly. "No need to be formal, though. It's basically just networking for Agent Weiss.""And why do I have to be there?" You frown."Personal request. You and Lieutenant Williams are to act as Amy's escorts." She explains."Chaperones, you mean." You correct."Just keep an eye on her." Dorothea groans. >True, the kid has a knack for getting into trouble.>Orders are orders.>Sounds like a waste of two good pilots.>Other
>>1991756>>True, the kid has a knack for getting into trouble.Wew, don't want Amy to be on her lonesome. She might decide to jack another plane and fly off.

>>1991756>True, the kid has a knack for getting into trouble.
>>1991756>True, the kid has a knack for getting into trouble.>Other"Will you be joining us in that den of villany?"
>>1991756"True, the kid has a knack for getting into trouble." You nod. "Sounds like you've taken a liking to her." Kellerman chuckles. "Maybe she'll stop trying to steal our rides.""Doubt it." You shake your head. "Well, there's already a shuttle prepped, unless you'd prefer to take your Valkyrie down." Dorothea points out.>Take the shuttle.>Take your Valkyrie.>Other
>>1991913>>Take your Valkyrie.I bet shit's gonna go down. Might as well get prepped.
>>1991913>>Take the shuttle.
>>1991913>>Take your Valkyrie.
>>1991913>>Take your Valkyrie.Yeah take the Valkyrie
>>1991913>Take your Valkyrie.
>>1991913>Take the shuttle.Inb4 amy runs off and tries to steal our plane.
>>1991913>Take your Valkyrie.Two seater fancy entrance with Amy?
So I'm guessing our new flight suit is a light and dark grey base with yellow highlights while Lara's is a blue one with bright red stripes streaking across it.Now we just need a cute emblem on our plane.
>>1992092Clearly it needs to be a cute pinup of the admiral.
>>1992110>>1992092Seconding painting the Admiral on our plane.
>>1991913"I guess I'll take my Valkyie. Pretty sure the paintjob on it should be finished by now." You shrug."Being a bit of a show off, are we?" Dorothea cracks a bit of a grin. "Well, I AM a pilot, after all." You grin back. "So it's just going to be and Lara going down there?""That's correct." Dorothea nods. >We'll be seeing you, then.>Why don't you come down too?>Other
>>1992135>We'll be seeing you, then.
>>1992135>>We'll be seeing you, then.
>>1992135>Why don't you come down too?
>>1992135>>Why don't you come down too?
>>1992135>>We'll be seeing you, then.>>1992124>No routelocking until all options are shownI need an aggressive Meltrandi waifu Cole
>>1992162>No routelocking>>1992124And that's why I think we should go for a holographic paint job that we can easily change.
>>1992174Let's paint our designated idol on the Valkyrie instead!
>>1992174I just realized, with holographic paint jobs, we can sideline as a billboard!Or make idoling easier.
>>1992188We can do that easily for shows and PR events.>>1992190Maybe we can even switch it to "dazzle camo" or even make our VF look like a much smaller one from a distance.
>>1992188Sheryl Nome is a-ok.
>>1992206Ah, the wonders of holographic camo.But I feel like if that's an option, that'll be out of our reach for now.
>>1992206Or they'll force us to fly a specialty plane full advertising (like one of those blimp ads but it's a plane!) and have us project holoprojections of cute kittens in boxes and upcoming idolsThen BAM! Zentraedi arrive and become utterly confuzzled by advertising and garish colors.Thus inventing an insidious new culture weapon. Memetic advertising.
>>1992135"We'll be seeing you, then." You nod as you get up."Please stay safe." Dorothea says coolly. "Lara knows the way down, so you can follow her lead.""Yes ma'am.""Don't crash into anything on the way down there." Kellerman grins. "Would hate to lose a good pilot so early.""I'll try not to, sir." "Very well, dismissed." Dorothea says. "Let's return to business at hand."With that, everybody gets up and goes off on their own ways. Dorothea heads back to the bridge, Freyberg shuffles off to join her, well Kellerman gives you a nod and heads off to wherever he goes.You meanwhile head off to the hangar, where you see your Excalibur, now all painted up with the black camo and yellow trim. Just like old times."Heh, I could swear you're tearing up right now." Rutger laughs. "Nah, the atmo in this hangar is just crap, that's all." You retort. "Well, anyways, paints all done and dried up!""Is she ready to fly?""Of course!" Rutger nods. "As long as it's not into another furball!""Nah, just a casual thing, this time." You assure him."Then she's ready to go." Rutger pops the canopy open for you. "Just in time. Looks like Lara was waiting for you, too."You turn to see Lara's Excalibur already on the launch deck. She waves enthusiastically to you and you give her a thumbs up.You drop into the cockpit and the two of you launch. "Come on, Cap! I'll lead the way!" Lara chuckles as you see her Excalibur happily weave and dive for Nabaal's surface. "How about we give the people down there a little show?">We don't have time for any acrobatics.>Sure, I'm up for a buzz or two.>Other
>>1992337>>Sure, I'm up for a buzz or two.Haha, time for crashing and making chief mechanics hate us!

>>1992337>>Sure, I'm up for a buzz or two.Pilot.
>>1992337>We don't have time for any acrobatics.
>>1992337"Sure, I'm up for a buzz or two." You nod. "All right!" Lara whoops. "Let's gooo!"You see her Excalibur dive down into the atmosphere, and you follow suit. A quick dive through a cloud bank, and you could see Nabaal City, the planetary capital. As expected, you could see the massive, towering figure of a Macross-class ship standing guard among the towers and skyscrapers. Your HUD immediately marked it as the SDF Kapisi.At its feet, you could see the city itself. Just a wide swathe of buildings and towers. On the edges of the city, you could see crystal blue lagoons, surrounded by pearl white bands of sand. "All right, where do you want to go?" Lara chuckles mischievously.>Buzz the city center.>Buzz the lagoon beaches.>Buzz the Kapisi>Other
>>1992470>>Buzz the lagoon beaches.Time for Snow.

>>1992470>Buzz the Kapisi
>>1992470"How about we hit the beaches?" You suggest to Lara. "Give the tourists a show?""Now you're speaking my language, Cap!" Lara laughs as she banks her fighter towards the lagoons. "Yellow Team, this is Kapisi Control, you are deviating from the projected landing course." The flight controller's concerned voice buzzes through your comms. "Is there an issue?""Nothing at all, Control, just working out a kink in the controls. Gonna circle around to see if I can get it sorted out!" Lara replies."Acknowledged. Stay safe. Control out."Well, it was obvious that Lara had done this before. "So that bought us a couple of minutes!" Lara says, unable to contain her glee. "What should we do?">Just do a high altitude flyby.>Perform a few maneuvers.>Low altitude high speed pass.>Other
>>1992618>Perform a few maneuvers.Yep, nothing like working out some kinks with some maneuvers.Gotta test EVERY control surface, yes.Lara, pls.
>>1992618>Perform a few maneuvers.

AC 4 is where its at!
>>1992694>Lara as Yellow 4Oh man, I hope a bomb doesn't set off while we're flying almost non-stop, while having to defend something.Or else...
>>1992618"Let's give them a little show, I guess." You say. "You've done synchronized maneuvers?" "Right on!" Lara laughs. "Of course!""All right, let's go then.">Roll 1d20

>>1992732Or maybe something went wrong with our plane.
>>1992736Fortunately the dice system Merc uses for this quest means that we only got an 11, which is kinda meh.
>>1992711However, before you could so much as throttle up, you see a pair of VF-171s bearing Nabaal Colonial Defense Force markings drop down on either side of your formation."Yellow Team, we're here to make sure you two land safely on the Kapisi." One of the pilots announces over the comms. "Don't want any accidents over these populated areas.""I suppose so." You concede. Whether they caught on or were genuinely concerned, you weren't sure. But you couldn't do much about it now. "Aw man..." Lara groans."Maybe next time." You try to reassure her.The two of you land without issue and are quickly led deeper into the... ship? Base? You were never sure how to refer to landed SDFs since they acted as both. Either way, you're quickly led to a small lobby area, where a familiar face was waiting for you. "Captain!" Karla smiles as you approach. "Good to see you arrive!" "Well, it's part of the job, isn't it?" You say coolly. "Of course, of course!" Karla nods with that innocent smile of hers. "Anyways, things are just kicking off. Amy's just washing up right now, so we'll be going in shortly!""Do we have to hover over her the whole time?" Lara frowns. "Sounds like a lot of trouble."Hm, well, I guess anywhere with a line of sight should be fine. This is a very secure area." Karla shrugs."And yet you made us go through all the trouble to come down here." You narrow your eyes."Just a precaution!" Karla assures you. You're not sure you believe her."All right, I'm done." Amy grumbles as she shuffles out of a nearby door, now dressed in what you assume is her idol garb. A pretty flashy and gaudy affair, in your opinion. "So how are we doing this?" >Stick close to Amy.>Just watch from a distance.>Other

>>1992781going for this
>>1992766"We'll give you some space." You tell Amy. "But me and Lara will still be keeping an eye out. If you feel you're in trouble, just signal us.""I'm sure I'll be the one telling you to come save someone from her." Karla chuckles."Hey!" Amy grunts, obviously not amused. "Yeah, that's probably the more likely call!" Lara giggles. "All right, first things first, let's go meet some potential sponsors!" Karla beams as she hooks an arm around Amy's and starts dragging her off. "This is gonna suuuuuuuuuuck..." Amy groans as she's pulled away. "Hm, so, where do you want to watch her from?" Lara asks.Well, you could immediately spot a few places. You saw a small alcove off to the side that was pretty well hidden from the main crowd, but still afforded some good lines of sight. Pretty good if you wanted some privacy and to not be spotted right away. There was a raised balcony area that held a sort of lounge, which give a good view of the whole party area, but did leave you a bit exposed.Finally, you noticed that there was a full bar here. Looked like a good place to blow off some steam while you waited.All the while, you could see the place slowly filling up with people from all sorts of walks of life, ranging from full business suits to just business casual wear. But one thing for sure was that these were all fairly powerful or influential people that you should be wary of. >Alcove>Lounge>Bar>Other
>>1992824>>AlcoveGet the best ground.
>>1992824>AlcoveNo getting caught drinking while on duty.
>>1992824"Let's set up in that alcove over there." You nod. "We can keep an eye on Amy from there without being spotted.""Great!" Lara nods and the two of you make your way over, being careful to weave and dodge the other party guests. Thankfully, nobody bothers either of you. You guess that a crowd like this wouldn't have much to do with a pair of lowly fighter pilots. Either way, you both manage to reach the alcove and set up, keeping an eye on Amy as Karla drags her from group to group. Amy puts on a painfully forced smile every time as Karla does all the talking, thankfully. "Jeez, Karla's really putting her through the ringer." Lara sighs. "Guess that's what it's like to famous...">Sounds like Lara and Amy have a past?>Seems like a good idea to hear Lara's story. >Focus on watching Amy.>Other

Rolled 14, 15, 8 = 37 (3d20)>>1992890You figure it would be a good idea to keep an eye on Amy. Never knew what would happen with her involved. Maybe a bloody nose or thrown chair. Kid had a lot of fight in her. Lara quickly intuited how serious you were about this assignment and kept a vigilant eye as well. >Roll 1d20

>>1992958As you watch on, you notice some odd movement. One of the caterers looked to be tailing Amy and Karla rather closely. A casual viewer may not have noticed anything odd, but you could tell that certain waiting just seemed to be walking a circle around Amy's position, keeping a perfect distance away from her.However, every so often, he'd slip a little closer, and a little closer. "You see him too, Cap?" Lara grunts. "Yep." You nod. "What's the call?" She asks, cracking her knuckles.You key your comm, tapping into Karla's frequency. "Hey, Karla, we've IDed a possible troublemaker tailing Amy. What do you want us to do about it?""Well, I'll leave that up to you." Karla whispers back cheerfully. You look up to see her give you a little wave. "But do try to keep it quiet, all right? We don't want to alarm the guests!">Take him to the side and ask some "questions.">Call in security to handle it. >Wait and see what he tries to do.>Other>

Rolled 13 (1d20)>>1993021"Come on, let's go ask this guy some 'questions.'" You say to Lara."Got it." Lara nods. "Keeping it quiet!"You and Lara then split up, each of you taking a wide circle around the suspicious person so that the both of you would be able to take him from both sides...>Roll 1d20

Rolled 9 (1d20)>>1993097
>>1993097However, despite your best efforts to approach the waiter carefully and casually, it appears he's caught on to you, as he immediately shifts direction away from both you and Lara, making a beeline for the rear of the party space, where the rest of the catering has been set up. Looks like he was trying to lose the both of you. >Let him go, he won't be bothering Amy anytime soon. >Keep tailing him. >Call security on him.>Other

>>1993123> let him go for nowIf he tries anything again, call sec then. No need to make a scene immediately.
>>1993123You quickly make the call to base security, giving a quick, rough description of the man. Security assures you that they'll look into it, but you're not really that confident that anything would come of it.That's when you feel a tug on your sleeve, and you turn to see Amy standing there. "Hey, how about we blow this shitty party and do something that's actually fun?" She whispers conspiratorially to you. "You look just as fucking bored here as I do.""Where's Karla?" You ask warily."Managed to give her the slip." Amy shrugs. "So? What do you say?"This was concerning. Maybe it wasn't a good idea to have Amy diverge from her schedule like this, but then again, indulging her seemed like it would boost her morale. And at the very least, it was a good sign that she was trying to pass her plan by you first instead of just disappearing on her own. >All right, what do you have in mind?>I think it's better that we stay here. >Other
>>1993204>>All right, what do you have in mind?As long as it isn't too extreme.
>>1993204>>All right, what do you have in mind?We can veto if it will ruffle too many feathers
>>1993204>All right, what do you have in mind?I mean she's gonna go regardless, better if we tag along to keep her out of too much trouble.
>>1993204>I think it's better that we stay here.
>>1993204>>All right, what do you have in mind?
>>1993204"Well what do you have in mind?" You ask, slightly intrigued. "I just wanna go... anywhere!" Amy ruffles her own hair in frustration. "Just getting dragged around this stuffy like a hood ornament is driving me crazy! Hell, I'll even let you choose where we go!"Seemed like she really wasn't enjoying her time here...>Sounds fair enough. >It's too dangerous.>Other
>>1993239>Sounds fair enough.Let's find some shop nearby and get a souvenir or something. Maybe a tacky vacationer shirt for us.
>>1993239>Sounds fair enough.
>>1993239>>Sounds fair enough.
>>1993239>Sounds fair enough. >Other: " But i don't know any place at the moment. Tell you what. I will look for a nice place then next time we can pop the next popsicle stand we get stuck with. No good? Oh well i tried guess will be safer for me to go with you then." *devilish smile and the run away*
>>1993239>>Sounds fair enough.>>1993246Supporting. How about the most obnoxious Hawaiian shirt we can find.
>>1993241Why not buy her this series mascot. I vote for some kind of cute robot or a alien ferret.
>>1993239>>Sounds fair enough.>>OtherLet's go find a mall or something to hang out, Lara's a local, right? Wouldn't she know a good place?>what to do for money, does Amy have an expense card?
>>1993239"Sounds fair enough." You agree. "Yes!" Amy gives a quiet cheer and hugs you. You have to actively remind herself that she's still basically a kid. "Hey, what's going on, Cap?" Lara asks, finally linking back up with you. "Hey, Lara, you mind running interference for me and Amy?" You ask her. "I know I'm asking for a lot-""No worries, I've got it, Cap!" Lara winks. "Leave it to me and go do what you gotta do!""Thanks." You nod, impressed with how loyal Lara was to you. You then turn to Amy. "Well, I don't have any immediate ideas on where to go, but getting off this base will be a start.""Any ideas, then?" Amy asks.>Get out on foot.>Well your Valkyrie is parked in the hangar...>Other
>>1993271>>Get out on foot.Time for a STEALTH MISSION.
>>1993271>Get out on foot.
>>1993271>Get out on foot.We need a distraction...
>>1993271>>Get out on foot.
>>1993271>Get out on foot.They'll spot the Valkyrie easily.
>>1993271>>Get out on foot.Find a place where we can find disguises, or at least a less conspicuous wardrobe.
>>1993271"All right, just follow me lead, Kid." You tell Amy. "We'll be getting out on foot.""Really?" Amy blinks. "You sure we won't get caught?""Don't worry, I've done this plenty of times." You grin to reassure her. "Just trust me on on this."Um, o-okay." Amy mumbles as she reluctantly grasps her hand over yours...>And that's it for tonight! As always, next thread is next week! And don't forget Frontier Knight on Saturday!
>>1993309Thanks for the run, Merc!
>>1993309See you next time, Boss.
>>1993309Thanks for running Merc!SEE YOU NEXT DECULTURE!!!Also we're at the holding hands stage now? That's incredibly forward!
>>1992912More of a joke about how Planet Dance is basically the only fucking song Basara knows for the first half of 7.
>>1993309Fell asleep, and I come to hand holding. Merc, that's, like, several bases.
