The Captain being down did not phase Hiroshiko at all, she was still scared shitless that she was going to finally die on a kami-forsaken Sharie. "If I ever survive this, I will never step foot on this death machines ever again!!" she thought to herself. Her previously unknown mental occupant promptly reminded her that she had Yuri on top of her.

Rolling the science person off of her now freed but very pained body somewhat forcibly, she tried to connect mentally to the ship's network to figure what is going on. She still had not gotten any directions on what needed to be focused on.

Inaho picked herself up and shook her head. "Now I know what a piñata feels like." New damage reports and requests for orders were overwhelming the still struggling coms system. Two things stood out. They had been attacked by a still unknown enemy and the Captain and XO were currently out of commission. That meant she had command. "Hurray for me." She said rather dryly.

First thing to do was to regain so some control. The ship needed guidance. She overrode the alarms and made a ship wide announcement. "All hands to battle stations. Repeat, all hands to battle stations. Damage control teams to Decks 5 through 11. Get those fires under control." That would help get the ship in general moving.

With that done, and more detail info coming to her through the ship's MEGA. She send a message to Yukiko. "Are you still alive dear?" She asked though she already knew she was. "We need those engines up and running asap. Runa can take over the turret repairs, for once engines comes first." She then located Doctor Fletcher near Upper Engineering. "Doctor, report to the Med bay stat. Taisa Motoyoshi is seriously wounded and needs to be stabilized at all costs."

With another sign Inaho looked around the bridge. This place was going to need some serious cleaning once they were out of this mess. She spotted little Momosumi and said, "Momosumi, were you able to get any reading or photo's of what attacked us?"

Although the connection was somewhat spotty, Hiroshiko would be able to the ship's network. The ship's MEGA had been quite shaken by the event that had sent the Wakaba to where ever the hell they were now and had needed to do several reboots to get itself working properly. The recent attack had also messed with many of it's data receivers but it had finally been able to pinpoint the damaged router. It directed Hiroshiko to deck 12 and repair or replace it's routers so that communication could be restored to the Wakaba.


Sorry @Soban , I missed tagging you the other day.

Fletcher nodded, he was needed elsewhere. "Ok, we've stabilized her, so get her to sickbay. You'll need to take it slower than I'm going to do." He said to the Neko who was with the wounded he was currently treating. Then began to head back towards the medical bay.

Medbay

Fletcher strode into the medbay, heading straight to the surgery where he would need to work. "What's the situation with Taisa Motoyoshi?" He asked.

"We're putting hemosynth into her, but it's coming out just as fast. Her vitals are bad." A nurse responded as they moved into Surgery.

Fletcher looked first to the readouts, "Ok, we need to stop the bleeding. Get me a scanner so I can see through all this blood." He said, trying to work out exactly the plan was going to be, but acting like he had one already for everyone else's sake.

Calandri was knocked down by the sudden explosions and shook her head as she tried to regain her footing and started to stand up, hearing a scream behind and a shout. She turned around to find the XO down after being hit by shrapnel from the explosion as she swore in her native tongue. Now this was a terrible first mission, she shook her head and came over to the woman and the XO with a sigh as she kneels down with them "okay, what I am going to need, is him out of the armour, I believe I can carry him down to the Medical Facilities." She looked down at the armour, in all her training the armours that the yamataians used where always the most confusing thing to open up.

“Join the military, you will! They say! I’m in a gang, I say! Oh, honey, we know it’s a club, not a gang! They say! Parents, I swear!” Runa grumbled as she got to work on her previous orders. “Now I am stuck in Yui knows where and none of my people are with me” She smiled as she thought of what she might do to her parents when they returned. Now her task was completed she rode on her drake back for new orders.

She spotted the XO and the others. ‘Ma’am task is complete. Anything I can do to help?” She asked, thinking she’ll have to play nice for now since she needed them for her survival.

The tiny robot was still in shock. The captain she had been talking to before was now down. Was she dead? Was she coming back? She shook her head and paid attention to Inaho's question. "Not entirely clear," Momosumi admitted, "but it's big." She sent a private message to Inaho, explaining "I susoect it could be related to the SMX pod. It seems there was some sort of attack here before, and I'm guessing it has to do with them." This time, Momosumi attempted to use the scanners to identify if the type of damage dealt to the previous ships unfortunate enough to arrive here was similar to the damage the Wakaba had just taken. She also cross-checked available databases to see if there were any known weapons that would cause this damage pattern.

The young Minkan girl seemed to settle down some. Calandri's calm dementor helped. The girl, a caretaker, looked down at the XO's Daisy suit. It was part of basic training, learning how to put these things on and take them off. Any idiot with half a brain should be able to figure it out. "Come on, think!" She muttered to herself. There! That was the release switch. The armor unlocked itself allowing them to remove it. But as they were removing the right leg guard they must have accidently bumped it because the XO temporarily regained consciousness and began screaming in pain. The poor Minkan girl screamed as well and dropped the leg, causing it to hit the deck. The shock was too much and the XO again went out.

MedBay

Santo Hei Valdia Masao entered the surgery and began to assist the Fletcher. She had to float up to the table because the 7'1" doctor naturally raised the operating table to a height that was most comfterble for him to work. Even though she was about two feet shorter than him, with her Neko ability she didn't even notice the difference. She liked working with Doctor Fletcher and had already learned a great deal from him working aboard the Wakaba. While the nurse was assisting him in trying to stop the bleeding, Valdia ran some other scans to see what the extent of the damage was. She frowned at her readout. That couldn't be right. A Neko's body was full of nanomachines that helped repair serous trauma. But according to her scans, the nanomachines weren't repairing. In fact, they seemed to be doing the opposite. "Doctor Fletcher. We have a problem."

Bridge

Momosumi search would reveal a 90% match to weapons used by the SMX and NMX. Energy readings and damage indicated heavy capital ship weapons. The computer was still processing images being uploaded from the ships scanners and the Mindy suits surrounding the Wakaba. Results were still inconclusive. Inaho was silent for a moment as she took in what Momosumi said. "Keep at it. We need to know what we're up against."

Fletcher looked across at the screen to where the Nanomachine display was located. It took him a moment to digest the information. There were a few possible options, none of them good. "Are they subverting her nanomachines or are they invaders?" He asked, watching the screen himself and calculating their options. Hemosynth and it's nano-machines were very well protected. If they were being subverted, then something was worse than wrong. Sacrificing the whole ship and it's entire crew would be a cheap price to get the information back to Star Army research level bad. That was the worse case because it meant every single Neko in all of Yamatai was vulnerable to having their own defenders turned against them. Invaders were still bad, but he could fight them even as they replicated inside her body. Bolster the number of defenders with more Hemosynth, identify how the nanomachines could target the invaders, and other techniques.

After Calandri recovered from the screams of the XO and the girl's screams as well. She knelt beside the XO and wrapped her two left arms around the body, one just under the shoulders and the other on his lower back as she lifts him up. She used her two right arms to help lift him up into a more comfortable position for both of them, as she held onto his his waist with her two left arms and her two right held his legs to stop and jostling or bouncing, especially if he woke up. Gently and slowly she rose back to standing tall, with a small nod to the girl that helped "thank you, sorry for the scare at the end but he should be okay now, I can take it from here." As she turned she saw Runa that and she smiled calmly "well if you need something to do, follow me I guess, make sure I am not bashing the XO against anything and warn me if he wakes again, I would rather be prepared for a scream or activity that will happen."

With that Calandri started to walk, she knew it was better to with the ship shaking and stuff falling. She made her way towards the Medical Bay, only being there a few times before, mostly to chat with the medical staff, about her biology, it may of been more awkward than she realised but it had to be done at the time. She knew the way and prayed to her goddess of healing and life that the XO would survive this "Kavva nostari filnura."

Before her, one of the two smallest crewmembers saw Calandri pick up their XO as if it was nothing. A benefit for a huge body, the drake rider figured. Runa simply nodded her head and followed the supergirl. Her Drake also kept watching on the situation as they flew, especially concerned whether its mistress was alright healthwise considering she’d been knocked unconscious previously. As they neared the medical bay, Exyrus chirped, thinking that not only could their XO get help but maybe Runa could get a check-up.

Valdia ran her scans again and again, growing more frustrated with each result. She couldn't get two test to come back with the same reading. One minute the Taisa's body is doing what it's suppose to do, next it's doing the exact opposite. She quickly called for a different scanner to be brought over. Within minutes one was wheeled into the room and Valdia ran a scan. This scan showed that while the Nanomachines were not working against the Taisa's body as originally feared, it wasn't working very well if at all. She quickly did another scan and got similar, but not quite the same results. "Doctor, it might just be our equipment. I can't seem to get a good reading. The equipment seems to be working fine, but I can't be sure."

A nurse stuck her head into the surgery. "Doctor, the XO has been injured. They are bringing him in now." Valdia looked up at the giant doctor and said, "I can see to him." She quickly removed her gloves and headed back out into the general med bay.

Valdia came out while putting on new gloves right as Calandri carried in Chusa Canterbury. A nurse had a gurney table ready to take the XO. "Set him down here please, carefully." Valdia began her examination. "What happened?" She asked. She continued to work as she listened to Calandri's tale. Thomas's head had a nasty cut and it looked like he had suffered a concussion. His leg was even worse. The bone of his right leg was sticking out and it looked like it had become gangrenous. The leg was going to have to come off and now. She glanced up the tall Calandri and asked, "Are you squeamish? I need you to hold him down. Hold his legs and his shoulders down. Don't let him jerk."

Valdia took an amputation tool and quickly began cutting. There was some blood splatter but not much. She quickly had the leg off just below the knee. Blood began to flow, which was a good sign she wouldn't have to cut more above the knee. Valdia did an inspection that there weren't any foreign particles in the leg then set the leg into a machine that began to securing blood vessels and nerve ends. It was an automated thing, in about an hour the leg would be ready to have a prosthetic replacement put on. Not your fancy cybernetic one, that would require some more specialized surgery and customization but they could get a let on that worked almost as good as the one lost.

Thomas was strapped to the gurney so he wouldn't accidently move while the machine did it's thing and a nurse began to clean up his other injuries while doing a brain scan to check for damage there. The XO was still unconscious. Valdia removed her bloody gloves and tossed them into an overflowing waist bin. It never seemed to end. She glanced at Calandri and the mini Neko that had brought in the XO. "Are you two good? Do you need checked over as well?" She asked.

Calandri was taken back by the quickness of the medical team, she wasn't really prepared for the sudden surge of activity that she had become a part of but continued with the task at hand. She nodded as she moved to the gurney table and using her four armies, slowly moved the XO off her shoulder and onto the table, careful not to bash or knock the higher ranking crewmate. She breathed out as she thinks back to what happened "We were at deck 24, repairing the engines, when the explosions happened, I didn't see what happened to the XO, but I assumed he got hit by loose debris or shrapnel from the ship." As she spoke she watched the woman work on examining the body and was asked a question she had never been asked before. She knew of the word as she shook her head "Was raised a hunter, skinned animals and helped when people got attack, I'll be okay." With a short breath out as she leaned over the unconscious man as she moved her arms to the pin him to the table as they began work and Calandri breathed a sigh of relief that the man didn't wake up throughout that ordeal.

After the straps were put in place, Calandri removed her arms and looks at the man on the table, he looked peaceful here, unlike she had seem him since coming on the ship, it was almost a different person. Calandri paused as she was asked if she was injured and she gave the medical staff a shrug "I am not sure, I got some pain in my shoulder and ribs, from being thrown about the ship, but I have felt worse so I think it is okay." She rotates her lower left arm and winces a little "Hock nalvi Groi?" She bowed a little as she then looked at the stares of those around and took a moment to realise "oh sorry, can I help you in anyway?"

Hiroshiko's concerns about the state of the ship's Chief Engineer were only heightened when she got the orders from the ship's MEGAMI. It took some digging in the digital metadata, but she was definitely sure the MEGAMI was the source of it. "Order acknowledged, making my way to deck 12." she replied back digitally to the AI. She was thankful that her original specialization as a Sensors Technician required her to have a rather through knowledge set on maintenance of MEGAMI's network systems.

She nodded to the Science girl, grabbed her deluxe repair kit, and limped her way to the nearest Zero-G corridor. When she arrived, she she climbed up to pull an environmental suit from one of the hidden compartments. Undressing and redressing herself in the Zero-G environment, she stuffed her uniform into a buttpack and began get climb up to Deck 12.

Deck 12 Maintenance Conduits

Arriving at the location of the routers at fault within the deck's maintenance conduits, she was greeted with an utter mess of shrapnel and twisted supports. She begun inspecting the structural integrity of the conduit and that section of the ship by flashing a light to get a clear look. The explosion did not seem to leave a lasting effect in that regard which allowed her to slightly smile in relief so long as that area of that side of the ship did not take any heavy kinetic strikes too many times. The repair would be a minimum a 4 man job.

Turning her attention to the panel that was supposed to protect the sensitive electronics within. Seeing the multitude of small holes going through it, it was confirmed that the door had failed at it's intended job when she was greeted with shredded routers. "Now that is some serious bad luck." the male voice within Hiroshiko's mind spoke to her.

"That is what replacement routers are for. The shopping in storage wasn't for fun now." she responded silently back to "herself". She begun digging out the ruined pieces of the 3 routers and switches so she could inspect the power/data connections. So long as they were intact and largely undamaged, it will be a simple swap.

Fletcher let himself step back from the problem, detaching himself to consider the alternatives for a moment. "Give me a nanite panel." He decided, the neko nurse nodding and running it quickly as Fletcher tried to sew the captain back up. When it returned, he frowned. There did seem to be some sort of strange nanites, but they seemed weirdly ephemeral, but responded to cold. He made a couple of mental calculations. He made a decision, "Put the captain in a nanite bag and then into cold storage. We'll have to deal with this when we return to Yamatai."

He scrubbed, making sure that there weren't any foreign nanites on anyone or in the operating theater. He walked out to see the XO, unconcious. "Who's in command?" he asked, not knowing what parts of the command staff were dead. He hoped he hadn't just been promoted to commanding officer present on the ship, there were a lot of wounded. It wouldn't be the first time, but it wasn't something you ever really wanted to have happen.

Out in Space, Wakaba picket line

As the destructive energy beam hit the ship, Setsunu Meiosei sprang into action. Her calm and authoritative voice cut through the panic chatter and got her picket line reformed. When more shots didn't come Setsunu took a half dozen of her best fighters, Katana trained Giretsus, and teleported 100 klicks in the direction the attack had come from. They found nothing. Nothing visually and nothing on their scopes. The enemy had vanished. As soon as their teleporters had recharged, Setsunu and her fighters teleported back.

That attack had really shook everyone up. The fact that the enemy had completely disappeared had everyone on edge if it would suddenly show up again. Setsunu set a rotation, so that those on patrol could take a break and get some rest. It was critical to keep people at their best. Several of her fighters protested, saying they didn't need a rest but Setsunu would hear no complaint. She even took the first rest rotation to show her people how important it was, even though she didn't want to come off the line either.

Aboard ship

Setsunu got out of her Mindy for the first time in what felt like days. She unbraided her long green hair and ran her fingers through it. Connection to the ships AI was still spotty but she was able to bring herself up to date with what had been going on inside the ship. She was quite startled to learned that both the Captain and XO had been incapacitated during that last attack. Setsunu immediately made her way towards the Med bay. As she left, she grabbed her Aether spear and strapped it to her back.

Med Bay

The Med Bay was overflowing but Setsunu was finally able to locate Thomas. The XO was still strapped to a gurney table and unconscious. Setsunu looked over her dearest friend and thanked the stars that he wasn't more seriously hurt. She gently took his hand in hers and brushed a the hair out of his eye.

Valdia smiled at the tall four armed woman. "Probably would be a good idea to get you checked out anyway. We wouldn't want something minor to get worse because it wasn't checked out." Valdia took a hand scanner and ran it over Calandri. The hand held beeped twice then showed it's results. Valdia nodded. "Just some bruising. Nothing serious." Valdia looked around when Calandri asked if there was anything else she could do to help. "Well, I guess we could use some help moving people who have already been treated elsewhere. Give us some more room to work in here." She was about to go on when she saw Doctor Fletcher come out of surgery. "Excuse me."

Valdia headed straight over to the Fletcher. "How is the Captain?" She asked. She nodded her agreement as Fletcher filled her in. "I concur Doctor. Taisa Motoyoshi is very important to her clan. She should be ok until we return." She paused and looked around the room. If we return she thought to herself. Fletcher's inquiry about who had acting command now brought her around. "I don't know sir. I believe you are. Even if Chusa Canterbury were to wake up right now, you would still have acting command. He's had a concussion and as per regulations, he wouldn't be cleared to return to command for at least 6 hours after he regains consciousness."

Thomas' eyes opened and for a moment he couldn't figure out where he was or what he was doing. His eyes wouldn't focus. "It's ok." He heard a soft familiar voice say. "You've been wounded, but are being treated." His eyes were finally able to focus on the person standing over him. He recognized the beautiful dark skinned face and dark green hair. "Hey Sets. How are things going?" Setsunu smiled. "Same as always." Thomas returned the smile. "That bad hu? Well I suppose Taisa Kazue has things under control." The smile disappeared from her face. She looked around and noticed Doctor Fletcher. "Shosa Fletcher. Chusa Canterbury has regained consciousness. I thought it best if you inform him as to the condition of the ship and her Captain."
