Alastair looked to Elenor first then looked over to Klaus. Did they really just request to strap missiles to this tank? A tank they could just reach around to the side and unplug like a normal rational being. His straight face and smile slowly changed into the most evil of evil grins. Lucky for him the crew could not see it through the helm of his mindy else they might think he had gone just a little mad. Though he was mad, completely angry at the fact one of the aliens had to dirty their hands.

He walked over to the tank and slapped the side of it. "Permission granted, though on one condition." He said in a calm cool voice. "Make it five and have our dead kuvvy friend here hugging the fifth." This pleased him to no end to know there would be no coming back for this guy. Alastair was going to make sure not even a cell remained of this filthy animal.

Giving a nod, Elenor grinned as she slung her rifle off it's strap. "Alright Klaus, let's rig this puppy. We'll go with mister fancy pants for our, figure." She says, walking over to the corpse in question, and dragging it over to hte tank. As soon as Klaus had unloaded the missiles needed, she'd begin carefully cracking them open to access their detonation controls and beginning to re-wire them, setting them up to fire on a remote detonator. She set the detonator to be a signal pulse from her radio kit. "Be very careful rigging these to the tank please. They aren't quite as safe to handle now." She warned as she began setting up the 'rope' to hold the whole affair to the tank.

Engineering Tunnel

As Eden's small team grouped up, she moved them through the engineering tunnel's entrance and then narrow passageways until they were almost on top of Aiko's group, which outnumbered their own with the addition of the Leinve. Eden signaled for CFS off to the group. The Leinve had been freed moments earlier by the princess' careful work and had grappled with their robes in which their translator was, then put aside the task and gave a graceful motion of the brows as they extended up and out in lieu of words of gratitude that would be said through the device.

When Eden, Kikios, and Wyatt got to the four of them, the Leinve looked over their shoulder as if simply verifying that there was nobody behind them before halting mid-stride, then took a small number of steps forward and put their body between Aiko and the approaching Mindy, though there movement was clunky and not versatile like a trained warrior, so Rei was able to move between them and Aiko quickly enough. They still managed to make eye contact with the princess and wiggle their brows in a feverish, perturbed manner before looking back to Eden's group. the Chusa herself had raised a hand and spoke to Aiko.

"Ketsurui-shoi, you have rapport with this alien. Would you be able to ease their alarm?"

YSS Kaiyō II
Bridge


Hoshi's expression had relaxed into a thin smile. Despite the shots the fighters tried to press past the Kaiyō's shields, she was dodging or deflecting them well while Chlorate showed a prowess Hoshi believed to be unmatched in that seat by anyone else that had sat there. Her bridge crew were showing their capabilities to end a fight where the enemy had found one. Her brow crinkled inward as a lone fighter had narrowly avoided a few rounds directed at its hull, splashing in and out of the fiery wreckage of one of its comrades. It was the only fighter left, but her mind concentrated not on meddling in the pilot and weapon operator's clearheadedness and questioned that of those on the ground.

She spoke into Belmont-chui's comms, tying in Eden, "Remember that these are places of worship to those you just saved. If there is a non-destructive method to decommissioning that tank, choose that over one that eliminates a place of cultural significance to an entire alien species."

Alastair was grinning ear to ear as he watched the crew set the stage. This would be something they would be remembered by. A clear message to the kuvvy scum not to mess with Yam else you will be purged!

His grin slowly changed into a frown as he heard Hoshi over the comm channel. A personal reminder that he was to be mindful to the fact the locations they stood were places of worship to the aliens. This both confused and angered him as this was nothing but a mirage. A false temple designed to pull the aliens into a false sense of loyalty to the Kuvexians overlords. This place had no more cultural significance than a random rock. He wanted nothing more than to reply back to Hoshi and say how much a coward she was not being able to cleanse this shrine.

Just as he was about to reply back to Hoshi and Eden he remembered the look of the aliens. It was one of relief when they had been saved by the crew. This quickly changed to hatred that ended with a kuvvy remodeling the room with his brains. While this place was a falsehood, it was still home to them. A home he missed back on the compound where he would find comfort among friends. Enough damage had already been done by the Kuvexian trash. They had left enough filth in this holy site.

"Elenor, find another means to disable the tank. While I want nothing more than to purge this place. We own it to our new alien friends to keep it intact. Klaus, find a way to clean off that kuvvy guts. Just try and not burn down the place in the process."

The grin returned to Alastair as he picture the kuvvy being purged by fire. He looked forward to a mission where he would set ablaze an entire station or ship.

Pausing as she was given the order to stop, she turned her head very slowly, the worry somehow managing to be etched onto her helmet's blank faceplate. "Are you positive sir? I can't exactly just flip a switch and render these inert now. And the way I rigged them, the slightest accidental jolt will set them off. And I didn't bring my demo kit to disarm explosives with me." She explained, handling the warheads like they were very likely about to jump up and start biting at people. Which, if they were mishandled, they would do and much worse.

One of the good things about Ranger training - they could use pretty basic tools to rig a demo charge. The other bit of good news, they were trained in basic EOD to reverse their own charges, but that needed a toolkit designed for it. Which was the bad news. Which meant that Elenor was now handling 5 very dangerous tubes of explosive power in her arms as she looked at squad leader.

As first Alastair thought that she was joking. He had just given the order to rig the missiles. Yet there she stood holding five fully armed missiles in her arms like a mother holding her baby. Only it would not be poop the crew ha to clean up but a room filled with them. He thought to himself how yet again the Kuvexian even when dead cause trouble for him and the crew.

"Don't panic, we can fix this. I am an expert at coming up with plans." He said calmly yet his face told a different story. He reached into his cargo pack and started to pull out what was inside. First came out a bunch of cuffs. Followed by sporks, Flip-Flops and other prisoner related items. Lastly he pulled out a tracking bracelet and showed it to Elenor. "Think we can use this to make a timer trigger?" He asked in a serious tone. "If we can rig to a timer it will buy us time to eject them out into space."

Kiyo’s eyes turned slightly after downing another of her targets, her HuD picked up Saya’s movements, a small part of her allowed to be emotional, and worried for her friend, she loved that girl and hoped she can get through this without something bad happen to her. She knew that as medic Saya would have her ST updated that she wouldn’t have to worry about introducing herself to her. Her HUD picked up Alastair’s movement and his interaction with the Kuvy. She understood his feelings, pre-battle mode Kiyo had heard about what the Kuvexians were doing and she felt saddened and angered that innocents were getting hurt simply because someone has issues, but battle mode Kiyo didn’t care, and she turned away without comment, verbal or otherwise as she proceeded forward again.

The activity around Alastair caught her attention, where she noted the death of the Kuvexian, the head exploding would cause a reaction later, now she had her duty to do, and as she moved on she heard Klaus’s reaction before she followed the others she was given.

She turned her head to Elenor as she spoke to Klaus and blinked her eyes before she understood what she wanted to do. Seemed like an interesting idea to the blue-skinned Neko and thought maybe she should stay close to watch and see what happens. Alastair’s words surprised her, but she watched Elenor. But of course their Captain had to remind them of the cultural significance and she wondered how her comrades felt about that.

She looked to the explosives but remained still since she didn’t have the skill to unrig them.

"Fear not, noble Reinbe," Aiko said when Eden's group approached and the new alien friends showed off their defiant stance in the face of the reinforcing Yamataians. She took her own step forward and stood beside the Leinve liaison so that he could see her face as she spoke to him. "This is a great leader from my peoples' Star Empire and she is here to assist us moving forward."

The princess turned to Eden and gave a slight bow, preferring it to a salute even though they were in a technical combat zone as to enhance the Leinve's edification regarding Yamataian customs and gestures. Were this not a diplomatic situation, Aiko would be incensed by the constant interruptions that blocked her from her objective. But she knew her job and duty today, and stuffed those feelings away from her steely surface.

"Chusa," she said with a nod before looking back to the Leinve.

"Please, let us continue toward the freedom of your people and the others trapped here," the princess urged, though her voice remained steady and stern. "We must make it to the station's engineering area quickly!"

An alien pulled away from their group, pushing towards the Kaiyō personnel, while keeping a keen eye on the explosives and also their distance from the Mindy-clad and dangerous-looking Yamataians. Their spindly fingers were interlaced over their sagging, lowermost mammary glands before they held out their hands, which were widespread and almost flamboyant as their fingers splayed.

"Poofsh," they said slowly as they fingers fell downwards, then lifted both hands to point to what Elenor held, then looked around. Spinning to look behind them and up, then at the tank, they pointed once more to the tank, then to the windows and to the walls of location 5. "Poofsh!" They said again, hands raised a bit more and a bit louder now to show their excitement. Teal fangs showed behind a near-lipless smile while their hunched posture and widened yellow pupils within blue eyes showed a concern. "Bo-..." The alien said slowly while gesturing in a similar fashion as before. "Boowoom!" They fol

A few bright aliens had become enraptured by the alien, watching, then when the alien was done, they snapped their thumbs clapped against the rest of their fingers on either hand and they spoke a strange, clicking dialect that utilized vowel sounds while looking to one another. Those that agreed looked about at one another before looking to those that had not been watching and poked or prodded their fellow alien species to speak in the vowel-heavy and click-laden language. Those shaken to look at the standing, watchful alien were quiet in anticipation to see the next move from the armored individuals that had come to change their way of life.

The Leinve looked less than assured for a moment as they stared at Eden, then Aiko's words pushed past their fear and they turned to her while their brows did two nod-like gestures, bobbing up and down. Eden pushed on with her team when the Leinve had done so, and the group, Leinve, samurai, and Star Army personnel alike, moved deeper into engineering.

On the way, Eden explained herself through a voice comm to those who could hear over their Mindy units and telepathy.

"There is no way this station can defend itself against an attempt by Kuvexians. The thing about it that can be its own saving measure, though, is the utility of this class of station. They are not meant to be lived in, worshipped in, as this one is used for. Rather, this is a cargo station. It may seem odd to us, but it is small enough to move at FTL speeds with little prep time and for extended periods. Its conversion to what it is now didn't come without detriment to that ability. Leka-hei, rerouting power from their cloning power conduits to the engines will be necessary, as well as making sure that transfer is going to be stable for a few months. The ultimate goal is for this station to be allowed to flee. To freedom.

"Ketsurui-shoi, if this alien you are with is able, they will need to make the decision where they go. Where this station reaches harbor isn't up to us, but them. But you know as well as I do that Yamataian space will provide them with protection and aid in incalculable measures."

Elenor was about to explain to Belmont-chui that she had already set a remote detonator, when one of the people they'd come to help came up, and began gesturing and making the sounds they were making. It looked to her, kind of like they were saying to get it outside then blow up the tank. But that was mainly her read on the actions of the being. Of course, the fact that most of them seemed to agree with this idea, was interesting. Changing her comm settings to keep her words only to the team net, she returned her gaze to Alastair. "I've set them to a remote detonator, with one of our unused channels as the triggering method. I'm not against setting up a redundancy, I didn't have anything to rig one myself, just letting you know what has been set up, Sir." She said, letting Alastair make the final decision now.

Saya watched as Wyatt followed off with Eden and bit her lip for a moment before she sent him a private message

"Please be careful. Come back safe."

It was short and sent only to him, but she didn't want to distract him too much. Instead, she had something at her location to distract her with worry, mainly in the form of several bombs the team was about to set up. Saya found her hands on her head with eyes wide in concern as she began to bounce back and forth on her feet in worry. She had been about to say something before Alastair thankfully thought better of his idea and decided to change it. She had small flashbacks of the start of their incursion into the base and the last tank she had been around to be destroyed, and the injured alien she had to more or less bring back to life.

Then the alien came forward and began to make motions with their hands, all too like the aliens from the first location. She took a few steps forward after she had checked over the other aliens and made sure there was nothing wrong with them outside of some bumps and bruises and waited beside Alastair and Elenor. She was bottom of the rung in terms of rank on this mission so it certainly wasn't her place to speak, but she was curious about the hand motions and had already started to wrack her brain over what they meant.

It was careful work unloading each of the five missiles and help Herrick-hei rig them all together, especially the added load of a dead body. But in the end they managed to do it. Klaus felt pride in his achievement.

So it was only natural that the universe would bring it down on his head. It was a foolish oversight on Klaus's part that this was a holy place for the locals. And that it would not be for the best to begin relations with ruined churches.

"Ohhhhh, bollocks. We better find a way to deal with this," said Klaus as he gestured towards the bomb/funeral explosive they had created. Seeing one the aliens approaching, Klaus paused and listened.

Klaus was no expert, but it seemed as long as they didn't destroy the place, they were free to blast the kuvexian away. Seeing this, Klaus decided he liked these people. Flashing the one that gestured a thumbs-up, he turned to Belmont-chui.

"Looks to me, like they're ok with blasting this sucker outside this location sir."

Alastair looked across at his team. He then looked over to the alien race who acted very excited. He had to make the right call on this. Granted every call he made was the right call as he ran by the numbers. Never one to do anything that would be in violation of any rule. This location was unclean and required to be shut down and purged.

"Alright team, you heard the aliens. Lets Boowoom this place into next week. I will leave it up between yourselves to decide on who gets to push the button." He then walked over, head held high, to where the aliens stood. "Come, let us be off to a safe location." He said in a calm voice to them as he reached his arm out to point towards the exit.
