Lenna nods after Kotema turned to face her with the other silanbar on her lap and stroking it. She blinked some as she was not expecting something like that. Then as she was told the tower was told and we are heading there. "I don't know what is going on about this ship any more than I know how to talk Silanbar. But do agree with you about that I'd rather not become baked in plasma." Seeing that hold one finger motion she nods some and then eaps as the power goes out and the ship drops, then turn back on and goes up, and repeats a few times.
The Furnace, aka engineering
Nikicon was monitoring that plasma breach that is caused by the open doors, The fuel and power dropping very fast then it goes out " What the fuck???" the ship free falls as she grabs onto something, and then the power comes back on and the ship moves upward, Quickly Nikicon hammers out into the computers something as the drives containment fields start to fail, more plasma venting from the ship but due to Nikicons doing there is more coming from below and Kotema will find that it was helping to keep the ship in the air. Seeing the edge of the spaceport approach Nikicon reverses it and the plasma drifts from the bottom and flows up out the top now, but without the effect that was from the bottom. Knowing that there was going to be a hard landing Nikicon jumps into a seat and belts herself in and readies for impact whimpering softly.
Back to the bridge
Lenna started to make her way over to a place to sit just after the second power-induced dive and belted herself in. Then it happens moments later As told Lenna grabs around the crash handles or the edge of the seat she was in and holds on through the impact. Then once it was stopped she chokes out unbelting herself " Another Happy landing, Now let's get the trucks out of here if we still can from the crash impact, and get them into the Sobek. " Her compad beeps some and announces "Captin Lenna, I have detected 3 incoming craft of unknown forces, weapons are hot and locked onto me, Raising shields shall I open fire??", "Negative Sobek, contact tower confirm incoming is not the defending forces. Raise shields except for the port side as we are going to need to drive some ground vehicles inside, open the port cargo bay, and lower the upper ramp to the hanger." Lenna commands, to which Sobek responds "Already contacted tower and was given ok to fire ma'am awaiting your command to do so." Lenna's voice comes back "open fire but only if the line of sight does not impact our or the spaceports activities. " " Aye aye Ma'am firing"
Meanwhile on the Sobek
After waking up during the start-up command Sobek the ship's AI scans the area finding Lenna or Nikicon nowhere about and finds the remote start option used as with the weapons systems activated. Scanning the area nearby it finds Lenna and Nikicon's tracking signals on a badly damaged approaching craft. Seeing that there was a lot of fighting going on it contacts the tower " Sood Zadra Tower this is the AI on the ISS Sobek, I detect a lot of fighting nearby what is going on." the tower quickly sends a text message about what was going on. Then the sensors detect 3 craft that is doing what looks to be an attack run on the spaceport and will be threatening to hit the Sobek's starboard side. Once more contact was made with the tower and was confirmed that it was not friendly forces. The Ai opens coms to Lenna
"Captin Lenna, I have detected 3 incoming craft of unknown forces, weapons are hot and locked onto me, Raising shields shall i open fire??", "Negative Sobek, contact tower confirm incoming is not the defending forces. Raise shields except for the port side as we are going to need to drive some ground vehicles inside, open the port cargo bay, and lower the upper ramp to the hanger." Lenna commands, to which Sobek responds "Already contacted tower and was given ok to fire ma'am awaiting your command to do so." Lenna's voice comes back "open fire but only if the line of sight does not impact our or the spaceports activities. " " Aye aye Ma'am firing"
With the final command from Lenna given the warning lights within the empty frigate go to status red, red-hued lights turn on as the Turrets on the dorsal side line up their shots, and a verbal warning in multiple languages is given to the starboard side to the effect of " WARNING INCOMING HOSTILES STARBOARD, SHIP IS OPENING FIRE PLEASE STAND CLEAR, SEEK COVER AND DO NOT APPROACH WARNING LIGHTS" Red strobes start to flash around the four dorsal main gun turrets. Then a few adjustments are made and then BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM! The four twin-mounted turrets fire off into the sky followed by another boom, and then one last boom. The four turrets sent a total of 8 406mm by 1626mm Armor Piercing, Capped, Ballistic Capped shells at each of the invading ships that they would have to fly through, forcing them to break off, or risk getting shot down.
Burnt and now half a Croissant
Lenna hears the announcement from her ship and then the sound of her turrets firing off three bursts and moves out trying to get her way back to engineering to get Nikicon and then to the cargo hold to drive the trucks off. Looking over toward Kotema, the other silanbar, and then to Zek she states " go to the cargo hold get it open I'll go to engineering and get Nikicon meet you there or on the Sobek if I take longer than you.
Engineering .... or what is left of it.
Nikicon wakes up some as Lenna shakes her awake. " no not yet momma a few more hours rest."
Lenna keeps shaking Nikicon as she says "Wake up Nikicon we need to get out of here the whole place is on fire!!!!"
That is true whatever was left of the fuel had caught fire and was burning all around the two as Lenna fights with the belts of the seat Nikicon was in. Giving up Lenna grabs a knife and cuts the belts lifting Nikicon up over her shoulder and starts to walk out with the wounded hare on her shoulder.
Nikicon did not fair as well as those on the bridge as when the ship crashed there was a flash fire, that sucked up all the air knocking the hare out cold, as with burning a good part of her hair off, luckily the hair burning saved her skin from the heat and flame. She was breathing once more but was not in a good way as she tried to hold onto Lenna as she was picked up and carried from the engineering.
