Title: Attempted Rescue
Location: Maxwell Ranch and Beach - Los Angeles, California
Synopsis: Things don't always go as planned… even for the supposedly infallible LA Resistance… This is a good example…
<ResRadio> Ham Tyler says, "All Resistance folks, Listen up! Diana has something special planned tonight. She is going to wipe out one of the LA Resistance Cells... The one that operates near the Beach. She has something new she is going to test on them, and we need to be there to stop it."
<ResRadio> Jason Briggs says, "roger that Ham, she won't even get a chance to."
<ResRadio> Elizabeth Maxwell says, "Acknowledged."
<ResRadio> Alexis Ayala says, "Acknowledged, I'll go get geared up."
<ResRadio> Ham Tyler says, "Briefing in 10 minutes, Docking Bay 94... And who named it that, anyway?"
<ResRadio> Elizabeth Maxwell laughs.
<ResRadio> Ryan Rivers says, "I'll be there soon. I would have given you guys some warning about this... But it not only happened while I was off shift, but they moved rather quick with the turn over. Only found out less than half an hour ago."
Alexis Ayala runs up the stairs to her room to get her gear
<ResRadio> Ham Tyler says, "Not a problem Ryan. Fifth Column just informed me of the Weapon they are using... we need to destroy it, if we can.... It's the ONLY one they have... Some kind of Disintegration Beam... I'll explain it all at the Briefing."
Alexis Ayala comes down the stairs in her gear, ready to go.
Ham Tyler stands in the center of the Barn, head looking down at his feet. He seems annoyed, but that is OK, he always does.
Jason Briggs walks in and waits for the briefing to begin. He notices Alexis, Ham, and Liz wait for the others.
Angelica slips in, heading for the infirmary.
Alexis Ayala shifts from one foot to the other, carrying her Visitor Laser Rifle and her Sniper Rifle case.
Juliet Parrish is just a little late arriving, don't hate her! She slips into the back.
Ham Tyler clears his throat, "All right folks.... Let's settle in, and listen up."
Late for his own reasons, Ryan comes in with his M16 at the ready, with his Desert Eagle replacing his Glock as a sidearm. He just folds his arms as Ham's commands, looking for a piece of wall to lean against.
Jason Briggs looks at Ham Tyler and pays close attention to what he has to say.
Angelica slips onward where she was heading, quietly.
Juliet Parrish is formulating her own plans in her head...Bates is going to like her even less by the end of the night...
Ham Tyler takes a deep breath, "All right, here's the situation... Diana has 15 Members of the Beach Area Resistance Cell. Tonight, she is killing them. It is unknown the exact time, but we are going to be in position to stop it." He pauses, "Fifth Columnist Franklin, Reports Diana has a new toy that she plans to unveil tonight, some Disintegration Beam or something like it. I want it captured or Destroyed, although, I'd prefer that we capture it."
Alexis Ayala listens carefully, her attention on Ham as she listens to him. She pauses to take in what she's hearing, absorb it even, and hmms to herself, contemplating the ramifications of the Visitors having such a weapon, and what happens to them when we get it.
Elizabeth Maxwell nods a little bit at Tyler, shifting position slightly, and simply listening.
Juliet Parrish continues to listen, and plot, all at the same time. She's multi-talented.
Jason Briggs says, "If we can get that weapon, that will turn the tides in a big way."
Ryan Rivers blinks at the name of the new weapon. "Holy crap, feel like I'm in a sci-fi or something with that beam jazz," Ryan replies quietly, a comment meant mostly for himself. His comment is rather serious though, and the fact that it is a rather 'extreme' mission in terms of new weapon and rescue, it means that it will be a bit more 'complicated'.
Maggie McQueen nods at Jason's statement, quietly listening.
Ham Tyler looks at Briggs, "We wouldn't be using it... Not at first. I plan on sending it to Brook Cove Laboratories in New York, so they can see what they can do to neutralize it."
Jason Briggs nods his head to Ham Tyler and agrees with him that it needs to be researched first.
Alexis Ayala hmms, thinking about that, and then nods slowly, "How soon do we leave?"
Ham Tyler glances at Alex, "I want you with your Sniper Rifle... Find a Rooftop, and you will take down anyone that starts to use the weapon. Clear?"
Alexis Ayala blinks softly, looking to the arm in which she carries the case, "Not a problem sir, be happy to."
Jason Briggs grabs his rag and polishes his Laser Sidearm, listening closely.
Ryan Rivers just continues to listen quietly, just taking a few bullets and putting them into a M16 clip as he observes from the sidelines.
Ham Tyler nods slightly, "We should be able to use the Rooftops of the Beach Front Apartments nearby, for some sharpshooters. We will not be taking a Skyfighter or Squad Ship as cover this time.... I am hoping Diana will wait for sundown before starting the executions, however, we need to be ready to move.... Doctor Parrish has an Apartment in the area, that for some reason, Bates has not taken down, or even bugged. I was there this morning, and checked the whole place... So we will all meet there, before we get into position." He shrugs, "Get to the Beachfront Apartments, Number 203, how ever you want, but do not get caught."
Ham Tyler adds, "Any Questions?"
Juliet Parrish shakes her head slightly, having listened and knowing full well where she's going.
Jason Briggs asks, "Any available vehicles to take?"
Alexis Ayala hmms, "Sounds like fun to me."
Maggie McQueen grins and moves to stand next to Alexis, eager to go.
Michael Donovan hustles into the barn, halfway into the planning stages of things. He sneaks his way into the rest of the group as unobtrusively as possible, which actually turns out to be pretty obtrusively when you consider it.
Ham Tyler shrugs to Jason, "I am Borrowing Heather's SUV, while she is in Texas.... Elizabeth has a Jeep.... Beyond that, whatever personal vehicles you have...." He looks at Ryan, and says, "Ride with me, Donovan and Parrish... That way, we are sure to be able to get into the city. I doubt even the Cops at the Border crossing would question a Gold Shield..."
"We aren't flying in? Crap," Ryan replies, just starting to get OUT of his jumpsuit. He can't go in looking like Kid Commando after all. He has some short gym shorts underneath along with a white t-shirt underneath, so it isn't a big deal.
Ham Tyler shakes his head, "Going in by Squad Ship would give us away, if we landed on the Beach... I suppose we could fly in close...."
Jason Briggs asks, "Anyone got any room in a vehicle for a Marine?"
Alexis Ayala starts to look anxious, looking around a bit, shifting her weight to the other foot.
Ham Tyler looks thoughtful, "All right, Elizabeth or Gooder, you can fly us to a point NEAR the Beach, and we'll walk in from there.... Although, we might have to wait until full dark to get close to the Target Area."
Jason Briggs pops his fingers.
Michael Donovan looks generally pissed off at something or other as he listens to the plan unfurl. However, since he doesn't seem to be staring daggers at anyone in the room, the cause of his problems probably isn't in the room.
Ham Tyler glances at Julie, "Doc... Want to do me a favor?"
Juliet Parrish looks up, nodding slightly to Ham. "Sure, I'll try..."
"That's a good call... Regardless of what happens, we could use the air support and the promise of a quick escape," Ryan notes. Looking toward Jason, he shrugs. "If Ham says we have room, we got room. I'm just Grunty McGruntGrunt here."
Jason Briggs looks at Ryan and starts to laugh at his comment about Grunty McGruntGrunt.
Ham Tyler smiles at Julie, "Shoot Bates... than capture him. Don't kill him though."
Juliet Parrish smiles slowly as Ham gives her his 'favor', and she nods slightly. "Don't kill...got it." That's a pretty lose stipulation, given that as long as he's breathing he's alive...
Ham Tyler smiles at Julie's response. Next, he points to squad Ship 190, "We'll take that one... Mount up folks." Of course, as long as his heart is beating, is all Ham cares about. Breathing? Minor, just don't let his pulseometer detect a Heart Stoppage, or removal...
Alexis Ayala grins, and shakes her head at Grunty McGruntGrunt, and arches her back, getting the crick out of her shoulder while she moves to the squad ship to mount up and stow her rifle.
Juliet Parrish inclines her head slightly towards Ham before she moves to Mike's side, then towards the plane.
Jason Briggs grabs his gear and heads for the ship.
Elizabeth Maxwell hmms, checks her weapons, and heads on up for the ship, without a word.
Jason Briggs takes a seat in the cabin of the ship.
Michael Donovan's jaw just sort of hangs open at Ham's last order. The look on his face doesn't improve after something is whispered into his ear by the lady at his side. Suppressing his trademark grimace, he checks his sidearm, holsters it, slings an M-16 over his shoulder and starts after Julie.
Ryan Rivers just tosses the jumpsuit over his shoulder and makes his way toward the place he is supposed to be. Which is good, since he is supposed to be there.
Alexis Ayala straps in and gets ready to go
Michael Donovan slides into the pilot's seat and looks back at all parties assembled. "If anybody's gotta go," he deadpans, "now's the time, otherwise you're gonna have to hold it until the bullets stop flying."
Jason Briggs says to Michael, "I am cool."
Elizabeth Maxwell glances over at Mike and laughs a little bit, rolling her eyes.
Ryan Rivers merely gets his jumpsuit back on really quick. "Well, you could pee your pants, but well, people tend to look down on someone for doing that," Ryan offers with a small smile, which swiftly fades as he gets himself ready for flight.
Ham Tyler sits at the spot, closest to one of the hatches, "Just fly Gooder... and no auditions for the Blue Angles this time, Clear?"
Michael Donovan does a quick preflight check and begins flicking switches, the craft beginning to thrum to life. "You know something, Tyler? I think all the fun's gone out of our relationship."
Juliet Parrish finds herself a seat, no doubt amusing herself with all sorts of pleasant, warm, fuzzy thoughts
Ham Tyler arches an eyebrow, "And why is that Gooder? Because I am letting your Girlfriend shoot Bates, while I am saving Diana for us?"
Michael Donovan goes quiet at that, though the observant might notice his knuckles whitening just slightly on the control yoke as he taxis the craft out of the barn.
Jason Briggs hangs on for the flight.
Ham Tyler just relaxes, having long ago, gotten over his fear of flying anything other than Choppers... Oh wait... Donovan's driving. His hands grip the seat, whitening his knuckles.
Jason Briggs looks down the rear cabin of the ship and asks, "What's a matter Ham? hate flyin?"
Ham Tyler mutters, "Only when Gooder is the pilot."
Jason Briggs thinks about asking Gooder to do a Barrel Roll just for Ham, but quickly erases that out of his mind.
Juliet Parrish smirks faintly, looking over towards Ham. "You know...some day he might just prove you right, just out of spite, if you keep pushing him about flying."
Alexis Ayala bites her lip softly.
Ham Tyler shrugs at Julie, He mutters to Juliet Parrish, "The... he crashes us, just to... me for... him... know I... beaten..."
Juliet Parrish chuckles softly, rolling her eyes at Ham before muttering back.
Ham Tyler just smiles his best smile at Julie... It looks surprisingly like his 'evil' smile, or his 'Let's kill something' smile... Maybe, because, he only smiles one way... badly.
Ham Tyler stands up as the craft touches down, "You're improving Gooder." He moves to the hatch, and says softly, "If anyone has a weapon they can not hide effectively from view, wrap it in something...." He waits for the hatch to open.
Jason Briggs hides his Laser Sidearm in his shoulder Holster and zips his coat up.
Maggie McQueen stows her compound bow and arrows in a gym bag and unstraps herself, standing up and waiting to exit.
Michael Donovan refrains from comment, instead choosing to wrap his rifle in the aforementioned something after flicking the switch that starts the entry hatch opening.
Jason Briggs walks over to the hatch and waits patiently for it to open
Alexis Ayala mms and stands up, picking up her rifle case, and then pausing a moment, she opens the case and puts the Visitor rifle in as well, stepping out quickly
Juliet Parrish has her sidearm with her, as well as a rifle. Taking her labcoat off of her shoulder, she hooks it over her arm, hiding it quite effectively before following Ham out.
Ham Tyler leads the way towards the Beach, after glancing around. "Nice landing spot, Gooder." He is carrying a bag, that contains his weapons.
Alexis Ayala hmms, "Alright, where should I be?"
Ryan Rivers just has his weapons still slung out and about looking about the rather seedy area with a cautious look. After all, cops + South Central = Bad Things. Of course South Central = Bad Things Anyway. Either way, he is ready to fight because he is going to... Like it or not.
Jason Briggs waits for further orders.
Michael Donovan shrugs at Ham's comment whether it was genuine or sarcastic. "Hey, who'll be nuts enough to look for us here?"
Ham Tyler shrugs, "All right folks.... Let's go. Alexis, find a building on the Beach, get on the roof... the rest of us, we go into hiding as soon as we get near the beach, and wait for Diana and Bates to show up. Do not attack until I give the order."
Jason Briggs says, "Acknowledge Ham." and gets ready to follow the group.
Elizabeth Maxwell nods at Him, checking her weapons quickly, and getting ready to follow. "Right."
Alexis Ayala rushes to the beach, making haste to follow Ham's instructions and find a building with a roof that has a good view of the area.
Ham Tyler motions Alex to the top of the building that houses Juliet's apartment, than, leads the rest of the Resistance towards a parking lot near the same Building.
Alexis Ayala uses the roof exit to get to the top of the building and starts to set up her rifle.
Elizabeth Maxwell follows along behind, looking around the parking lot, and checking her weapons again.
Juliet Parrish moves over to find a spot next to Mike as they settle in for the worst part... the waiting.
Maggie McQueen follows Elizabeth closely, not sure where to go.
Ryan Rivers merely looks for a place that is more sound for cover than actually good for hiding, looking toward the a beach front house and hiding behind the rare large rock that is in the front yard, placed in there to have their addressed engraved on it. He nods over toward the two girls Elizabeth and Maggie to see if they wants to join him there, considering if they do, he'll just go prone at the top of a sand dune. If not, the Rock is his!
Michael Donovan does his stoic best to maintain a veneer of calm and readiness on behalf of the troops in general and Julie in particular. Still, he's a guy who can't stand the five minute wait for microwave popcorn, so this particular passage of time is even more trying.
Ham Tyler ducks down between some cars, and is not worried about cover right now. No Visitors in sight. He reaches for his weapons, pulling out his Laser Rifle, His Uzi, some grenades, and his Laser Pistol. Yes, the man is a walking arsenal, but he is just the man to have around in a fight.
Alexis Ayala finishes with the rifle and starts to look around the area, looking for a good area to set the rifle and shoot from.
Jason Briggs goes and hides behind a sand dune.
Maggie McQueen moves over to the rock and kneels next to Ryan, grinning and fiddling with her bag's zipper.
Jason Briggs pulls out his Laser Sidearm and readies it.
A Squad Ship and a Skyfighter land on the beach, near a special set of Scaffolding set up. Quickly, a number of Visitor Shock Troopers sanitize the beach in all directions for 100 yards. After the check for anyone around, the leader nods to the Skyfighter, and a female Visitor in a white Uniform, with a Black Armor' breast piece, steps down from the Skyfighter, trailed by a Human in a Business suit. They move to the scaffolding, where the Resistance Prisoners have been taken, and stood up. Following Diana is another squad of Shock Troopers, that carry a LARGE weapon. It looks like a cross between a rocket launcher and a Laser Rifle.
Juliet Parrish recognizes Diana and Bates instantly. The rest are faces that she will forget by tomorrow, but those two...oh, no, they hold a special place in a dark corner of her heart. And one day, they'll see just how special...maybe even today, for Bates.
Jason Briggs looks around as the area is crawling with Visitors. He grasps his Laser Sidearm tightly.
Maggie McQueen pulls her bow out and readies an arrow.
Diana smiles at Nathan, "You see? A Model of Efficiency these Troops are. If you would allow me to provide your Security Forces, you wouldn't have a worry. O'Leary has screwed your forces up so badly, that even you can not trust your forces..." She looks over the prisoners, "If any of you care to beg for mercy, now would be the time to do so."
The prisoners just look at Diana, hatred visible in their eyes. The Resistance Group's Leader just laughs, "Like such a request would be granted?"
The closest of Diana's Troops, #136 backhands the Resistance Leader, and pushes one of the female Resistance members in front of the new weapon. He than, using a hand held remote, fires the weapon. Instantaneously, the Woman is vaporized, with only a short scream escaping her lips.
Nathan Bates winces as the scream is cut short, "Now Diana, why would I be able to trust your Security forces to keep my best interests at heart?" He asks, casually.
Ham Tyler stands up at the scream, yells, "Ayala, NOW!" For his own part, he fires his Laser Rifle at Diana, having Stashed all his other weapons in his Jacket, on his belt, or other places so he can lead the charge. His Laser Rifle spits a blue stream of Blasts, all headed for the nice white target.

Elizabeth Maxwell sights down, seeing the backhanding of the leader, and being just as offended as Briggs, lining her laser pistol up, quickly.

Ryan Rivers blinks at the new weapon. "What the crap is that? The new weapon, or just something that they just never shown before?" he pauses as he looks to Maggie, eyeing her for a long time. "Are you using an.... Well, I guess I have my sword, so who I am I ju-" His words are cut off as the weapon does the trick in one shot right before his very eyes. "...Ho-lee Crap." Of course, the time for fighting comes, and Ryan just takes off the safety off his gun, just taking a few rounds toward Elizabeth's target when he sees he's still standing. "When I said I wanted to take a few shots and with the girls, this is NOT what I had in mind," the lone law enforcer comments morbidly with a grunt.

Michael Donovan's lips remain a tight line as one of the people they were meant to be saving meets instant death instead of rescue. His mind, of course, is not on vengeance, like some people, but on minimizing casualties. "Button, button, who's got the goddamn button?" he murmurs to himself as he brings his rifle to bear on the sea of red uniforms around Diana and company, picking one and shooting.
COMBAT: Michael Donovan attacks Visitor Shock Trooper #138 with Colt M-16A1 Assault Rifle and hits! DAMAGE: 42
Juliet Parrish hunkers down, her eyes narrowing as she sees the troop backhand the woman, and then the Doc gasps as she sees the 'new weapon' in action. "My God," she whispers, eyes widening as her grip tightens on her weapon. She looks about ready to charge in this very moment, but manages to hold herself back. Barely. And then Ham charges, and she doesn't have to...good. Straightening, her sidearm is lifted, and she aims at Bates, for a leg, hoping to take him down...if he can't run, that makes her life easy.
COMBAT: Juliet Parrish attacks Nathan Bates with Visitor Laser Sidearm and hits! DAMAGE: 51
Maggie McQueen draws a bead on a trooper close to her and pulls back, releasing the arrow and grinning viciously. She so enjoys shooting lizards, especially if they aren't going to play fair with their weapons anymore.
COMBAT: Maggie McQueen attacks Visitor Shock Trooper #137 with Compound Bow and hits! DAMAGE: 35
Alexis Ayala observes the large weapon as she sets her rifle up, taking aim at one of the first Shock Troopers holding the large weapon, hoping to make them drop it.

Diana lets out a soft cry of pain, and a long hiss in Sirian, that sounds like a wounded Snake or an angry cat meeting it's doom. It means something like 'Ambush'.... She drops low, so that she is not visible, and her laser sidearm is in her hand. She moves slowly towards her escape route, the Skyfighter, and fires a shot at the Resistance Leading Tyler.
COMBAT: Diana attacks Ham Tyler with Visitor Laser Sidearm and Misses!
Shock Troopers start firing at the Resistance. Trooper # 139 picks up the remote for the new weapon, and starts shooting it at the Resistance Prisioners. Another Disappears.

Nathan Bates is shot in the leg, and he goes falling. Damn, that freaking hurts. He looks around, and his eyes narrow, "Parrish!" He has a pistol, and what else can he do but shoot at Julie?
COMBAT: Nathan Bates attacks Juliet Parrish with Colt M1911A1 Pistol and hits! DAMAGE: 23
Ham Tyler pulls out a Grenade, and throws it. This is not going well....

Jason Briggs fires his weapon, missing his target by only mere inches and then ducks back down behind the sand dune. He gets ready to take another shot just as a laser bolt hits him in the neck and he collapses.
Ryan Rivers smiles as he takes down one and sees the second that follows soon after. Good, first round of fire, two down. His hope in the battle swiftly rises. A good ambush can often beat numbers if they are within reason. But as he sees that they are still shooting at the prisoners, he curses. As the rock takes on intense fire, Ryan dives behind the rock for cover. He watches as first Maggie falls and then Elizabeth. This... This is not good. Even with the grenade, the fight is far from going well. He would run with the girls, but where too? Like heck would he get far with either of them with this many of them still shooting. "Just hold on, you two... I won't let them touch either of you." Praying to God so he isn't made a liar, Ryan lines up another seat of rounds for another Visitor.

<ResRadio> Alexis Ayala says, "This isn't looking good, anyone healthy enough to get back here but hurt get back here and I'll do my best to patch you up" <ResRadio> Alexis Ayala says, "And take Liz with you."
Michael Donovan hisses a bit of English that doesn't lose much in the translation to any other language as another 'rescue' bites the dust and the bolts start flying their way toward the 'rescuers' in a bulk, economy-sized dose. "Shit! Shit, Shit, Shit!" He's brought out of his beating himself up as a single pistol shot makes itself heard amidst all of the laser fire, its target being the young doctor fighting alongside him. Two and two come together sickeningly in his heart and mind, and quickly slinging his rifle over his shoulder with his left hand, he draws his laser pistol on the gun-wielding Bates and fires. "You won't hurt her again, Bates. God help me, you WON'T HURT HER!!!""
COMBAT: Michael Donovan attacks Nathan Bates with Visitor Laser Sidearm and hits! DAMAGE: 49 COMBAT: Michael Donovan has knocked Nathan Bates unconscious!
<ResRadio> Alexis Ayala says, "Julie if you can get back here, it might be a good idea to bring Liz...I know what you can do and we're farther from the action, I can cover you."
<ResRadio> Ryan Rivers says, "I would take Liz and Maggie out of harm's way, but I would need some fierce suppression fire. They got me pinned down enough as is."
Rather like Bates, Juliet lets out a scream as a blast from a Visitor rips through her shoulder. Thankfully, it's not on her firing arm, and gritting her teeth and thanking whoever is watching the group...okay, never mind, no one is watching as Julie gets shot a second time, tears leaping into her eyes and blurring her vision. How she is still standing is, well...a mystery. But she remains leaning against the cover she found (That isn't doing her any good), and shifts her weapon over to fire at the trooper who, without a thought, is happily vaporizing the Resistance prisoners. Must. Stop. Executions. Especially since Mike so gallantly got rid of her tormentor. Or one of them.
COMBAT: Juliet Parrish attacks Visitor Shock Trooper #139 with Visitor Laser Rifle and Misses!
Elizabeth Maxwell, while in the middle of checking her weapon to fire again, gets two rifle blasts, one to the shoulder, and one to the leg, but they're deep enough, and she drops over.
Alexis Ayala grits her teeth as 139 fires, "FUCK!" she says to herself, sighting in for the Visitor quickly and aiming. She is frustrated but never the less takes the time to aim, hoping someone gets back to her and is able to take Liz before it gets much worse...
COMBAT: Alexis Ayala attacks Visitor Shock Trooper #139 with PSG1 Sniper Rifle and hits! DAMAGE: 65
Maggie McQueen falls back, her bow still in her hand as the visitor's blast tags her hard. She was aiming at the one that had the remote but the arrow hangs loosely from the string now.
Diana moves even closer to the Skyfighter, letting another bolt zap out towards Tyler. That man shot her, than blew up some of her troops!
Her troopers are taking a lot of fire, but they are returning it in kind. #139 pushes the button, and another Resistance Puke disappears, just as he is shot. #138 picks up the Remote, dropped by the other Shock Trooper and fires the weapon again. A 4th, 5th, and 6th Resistance Prisoner dies, as they were all huddled together. The other Troopers continue to fire.

<ResRadio> Pyotr Zagadka says, "This Is Pyotr. Thank you so WERY damned much for waking me up, Comrades. Now give me your Coordinates. I am inbound in Shuttle." <ResRadio> Ham Tyler says, "We are on the Beach.... Just east of Downtown...."
Michael Donovan, wielding his sidearm one-handed, lays down some covering fire for Julie. "Come on, Julie! We've got to get the others and go!" As much as he hates leaving the unfortunate prisoners to their fates, while allowing Bates to escape the fate he so richly deserves. As almost an afterthought, he pulls a grenade from his jacket, yanks the pin with his teeth and sends it flying towards the remaining group of shock troopers.
<ResRadio> Alexis Ayala says, "Requesting permission to shoot the weapon?"

<ResRadio> Pyotr Zagadka says, "Affirm-ative, Friend Ham. Wait.. Weapon? What Weapon? ETA 3 minutes."
Over head, the sounds of three Squadships can be heard. They are coming in for a landing... What is inside of them?
<ResRadio> Ryan Rivers is almost crying, though in anger or sorrow is unknown. "Very Damned to be... This is turning out to be the worst battle in ages and you-" Sound of a laser shot can be heard before a split second of static and then nothing.
Juliet Parrish curses under her breath as she misses the Trooper firing the weapon, only to see someone else's shot take him down...and another Trooper take his place. She shrugs off Mike's plea, barely keeping upright on jello-y legs as she attempts to take down the latest trooper. "No...not while I"m still standing. Besides...I owe Bates a thank you."

Alexis Ayala bites her lip, this isn't going well, she sights up the rifle and literally fires at the first thing that stands still long enough to make itself an easy target.
COMBAT: Alexis Ayala attacks Visitor Shock Trooper #139 with PSG1 Sniper Rifle and hits! DAMAGE: 64 COMBAT: Alexis Ayala has knocked Visitor Shock Trooper #139 unconscious!
The Doors to one of the newly arrived troop transport open and standing in the portal is.. Pyotr. His Laser Rifle already leveled and aimed, he takes a bead over the heads of his comrades and is ready to cover any of them as they make their way towards the ship.
<ResRadio> Alexis Ayala says, "Looks like time to pack up..."
Diana gets to her Skyfighter, and fires one last shot at the Resistance.
The three Squad Ships land, near to Diana's ship, and disgorge 4 squads of Shock Troopers. They form a ring around the Weapon, and Diana.
COMBAT: Diana attacks Juliet Parrish with Visitor Laser Sidearm and hits! DAMAGE: 44 COMBAT: Diana has knocked Juliet Parrish unconscious!
COMBAT: Visitor Shock Trooper #575 attacks Michael Donovan with Visitor Laser Rifle and Misses!
Ham Tyler is lucky enough to get close to Bates, and he picks up the man in a fireman's carry, while his other hand holds an Uzi, and fires it at the only Trooper that can get close enough to him, or the other Resistance folks, before they could escape....
COMBAT: Ham Tyler attacks Visitor Shock Trooper #575 with Uzi SMG and hits! DAMAGE: 37 COMBAT: Ham Tyler has knocked Visitor Shock Trooper #575 unconscious!
Ryan Rivers shouts some into his radio, almost crying. Almost. There is a reason that Ryan was in the Police and not the army. He isn't a killer. He isn't meant for the battlefield. But when one looks at it, there are few that actually say they are and aren't lying. But despite how 'I'm no soldier' air of Ryan, he sure keeps the kills coming. Skill, luck, or by divine intervention, Ryan finds himself still standing thus far into the fight. That is UNTIL he gets shot in the chest, having tried to line up to take the shot while a volley was still being fired. Hopefully it didn't hit a lung, but either way, it drops him rather fast. His eyes tear up, as he slowly loses the battle to the blackness. "I'm.... Sorry... I hope you both live... to forgiv-" Ryan isn't able to finish his comment before the pain seizes him again to the point where he is sent to the work of dreams. SOMEONE is calling in sick for the next couple of days. And if here were awake, he would comment that this isn't what he meant when he wanted to be laying down with two girls at once either, but thankfully, that is not the case.
Alexis Ayala moves back, hitting the eject on the clip for the rifle and removing the chambered round at the same time, before stuffing the rifle into it's case, packing it up and heading for the side of the roof with the fire escape, bounding down it as quickly as possible.
Juliet Parrish finally drops...well, Mike, looks like she's no longer standing, the final shot from a very lucky Diana drops the Resistance founder, into a heap on the ground.
Michael Donovan curses loudly as Julie starts making a beeline towards Bates. He has little other alternative than to follow after her and make sure nothing happens. Unfortunately, something does, thanks to someone against whom he already has a long, long list of grudges. Holstering his weapon he runs towards the fallen Julie, attempting to pick up his fallen lover as quickly and carefully as he can manage, and get her back to the waiting escape craft.
Pyotr Zagadka realizes that he can't make ANY difference with a single rifle.. And that his friends need help. "EVERYONE. Dammit... Get on board. Grab a person and drag aboard if you have to. Dammit. MOVE MOVE MOVE!" he cries.
Pyotr Zagadka peeks inside the carrier. "Anyone else?" he cries, as he grabs for the door mechanism.
The Visitor Troops finish the execution of the Resistance Prisoners, than begin to pack up the new Weapon, the Disintegration Device, and begin to get prepare to leave. That display of horror should keep the Resistance in fear.
Alexis Ayala rushes in, "Pyotr, can you fly straight and level enough for me to work on Julie?" she says, moving to Julie and looking over her wounds, starting to patch her up.

Pyotr Zagadka takes the lack of answers as a yes and slips into the control seat, just as Alexis jumps in and closes the door.. and punches it.
Alexis Ayala makes a point to make sure she doesn't lose her balance while administering to Julie.

Pyotr Zagadka is one of the last out of the Shuttle, quietly helping people get the injured into the infirmary. When he is finished he ends up sitting cross-legged on the bow of the shuttle, lighting a smoke, his rifle cradled in his lap and a bottle of beer sitting beside him. His long red hair is all tied back into a harsh topknot.
Alexis Ayala attempts to revive Julie, and bites her lip, continuing to work on Julie, hoping she can patch her up so she might be able to help the others.

Michael Donovan looks around to get a quick headcount and see if there's anyone in need of his immediate assistance before turning his attention back to the passenger that was loaded onto his shuttle.
Pyotr Zagadka just watches the first aid attempts, oddly detached. Sorta Shell Shocked by what he saw when he flew in... and other tings. He inhales deeply, holds it, and lets the smoke cascade from his nostrils. Sorta sucks to be, technically, a doctor yet no medical training.
Alexis Ayala grrs, gritting her teeth and continuing to work on Julie, "Come on...come one..."
FIRST AID: Alexis Ayala attempts First Aid on Juliet Parrish and is able to heal them a little. FIRST AID: Alexis Ayala has returned Juliet Parrish to wakefulness with smelling salts.
Alexis Ayala uses the smelling salts, grimacing, "Julie?"
Juliet's nose wrinkles, and a deep groan comes from her as she's revived. Maybe leaving the thrice shot woman out cold would have been kinder.
Alexis Ayala sighs, "Julie, I need you to help me and Angelica with the others...
FIRST AID: Alexis Ayala attempts First Aid on Juliet Parrish and is able to heal them a little.
Pyotr Zagadka lays back on the ships bow and takes another drag of his smoke.
Juliet Parrish manages the slightest of nods, moving to try and drag herself slowly to her feet. Despite the first aide that she's received, she's still bleeding, but ignores it. "Get...everyone downstairs." she mutters.
Alexis Ayala hmms, "I'm pretty sure they're all in the infirmary Julie.."
Michael Donovan arrives again from the Squad Vehicle, carrying the mostly-stabilized but still unconscious Maggie.
Pyotr Zagadka finally slips off the bow of the Shuttle and ashes his cigarette. "What can I do help?" he ask, of no one in particular.
Alexis Ayala nods slowly, and then immediately moves towards Maggie and Michael, "Michael, I'll take her into the infirmary, I'm going to be helping Angelica in there until we've done all we can for tonight." she looks to Pyotr, "If you know first aid, we could probably use you, if you don't, well then, you can get tools for us, please?"
Pyotr Zagadka nods once, not saying another world and makes his way into the infirmary to return a few moments later with a cart full of first aid kits.
Michael Donovan nods at Pyotr. "What she said," he answers the Russian. Carefully, he passes Maggie off to Alexis, then shrugs off his rifle and jacket. "I'm good for another set of hands," he says. "I might not have any degrees in medicine to back me up, but I took several correspondence courses in 'Not Letting People Bleed To Death In Front Of Me.'"
Juliet Parrish heads down on her own, leaving a trail of blood droplets, but determined to make it and treat those who're injured, whee.
Alexis Ayala carefully hefts Maggie in her arms, ad carries her towards the infirmary, quick but careful, hurry the hell up without fucking up, story of her life...
Pyotr Zagadka doesn't watch Alexis and Maggie leave. He forces himself not to watch. Instead he starts helping Donovan as much as he can. He, he does have nimble fingers. Techy Fingers.
Elizabeth Maxwell gets dragged over to the infirmary by, well, someone.
Elizabeth Maxwell gets dragged in by a random Resistance member, and left on a table.
Pyotr Zagadka walks back and forth between cots, handing tools and implements and bandages and medications... Like a good little nurse.
Alexis Ayala carries Maggie into the Infirmary, "Angelica...I've got Maggie, we have room for her?"
Angelica glances up and nods. "Set her on a table, yes."
Alexis Ayala nods and moves over to a table, setting Maggie down carefully, finding where she's been shot and looking around, "ointment for burns?"
Pyotr Zagadka steps up to Alexis and hands her the ointment. "Da." he says evenly.
Angelica sighs, walking over with her equipment. "Laser blasts, yes?"
Alexis Ayala nods, "Yes, laser blasts..." she says, treating Maggie's wounds with the ointment.
FIRST AID: Alexis Ayala attempts First Aid on Maggie McQueen and is able to heal them a little.
Alexis Ayala sighs, "I've done what I can done, it's your turn to do your thing Angelica."
Pyotr Zagadka just steps back and watches, hands held behind his back. Impassive.
Angelica nods a little, checking the work that's been done, and trying to run her equipment over it. Gotta love those alien medical things with high advanced technology... the cellular regenerator is the one in use, after a quick check of the sterility.
MEDICAL: Angelica attempts to heal Maggie McQueen and is able to heal them a little.
Alexis Ayala looks to Angelica, "Who's here that might need my help Angelica?"
Angelica hmms, checking her work over after its completed, and nodding a little, using smelling salts then.
FIRST AID: Angelica has returned Maggie McQueen to wakefulness with smelling salts.
Angelica says, "Probably the other unconscious one, if anyone."
Pyotr Zagadka stays out of the way, ready to hand out.. well.. stuff as needed.
Maggie McQueen groans and opens her eyes to see Angelica standing near her. "Ooooh," she moans, "I don't think we're in Kansas anymore." She rubs her face and peers between her fingers, seeing Alexis and Pyotr(?) standing nearby. "Did anyone get the wicked witch?" she asks of Alexis.
Alexis Ayala shakes her head, "No she made off in a Skyfighter with that disintegrator."
Pyotr Zagadka doesn't think, if he knew, that she sees them standing next to each other.. Since he is back a few feet and standing as stoic and impassive as any logical space alien from some bad television sci-fi. "I will want all yuir reports on this.. disintegrator." is all he says to the group. "Pass that round." Wow, someone has become professional.
Maggie McQueen groans with the news and the pain of her wound. Laying back, she watches, noticing that Pyotr is helping Alexis with the wounded. She keeps quiet, wanting to learn more about the people Alexis worked with. After all, Maggie is the new person here.
Angelica ruffles Maggie's hair, idly. "Feeling a little better?"
Maggie McQueen turns and smiles her crooked smile at Angelica. "Yeah, a bit. Thanks, darlin."
Alexis Ayala giggles softly and then looks to Pyotr, "Right...for sure, You take care of yourself, okay?" she says, while thinking, 'Gee, someone is acting rather distant', and smiles to Angelica, "Angelica, anyone else here I can help, or is there anyone left that I can help with my skills?"
Pyotr Zagadka shoots a look at Alexis... He picks up on the tint in her voice but says nothing. "Da. I will. You both take care of your selves as well.. comrades." and with that he turns and makes his way towards the door.
Maggie McQueen clears her throat and calls to Pyotr as he heads out. "Hey, thanks, man." She looks sheepish as she speaks. "You really saved our butts out there."
Pyotr Zagadka Stops at the door and looks over his shoulder. "Is my job." he says. "Nothing more... nothing less. Now excuse me. Another part of Job calls."
Angelica stays quiet, simply watching, and wandering over to the next unconscious case, to handle, leaving them to their conversation, and pulling Elizabeth's clothing off on the shoulder and leg, to start running the sterilizer on her large laser rifle holes.
MEDICAL: Angelica attempts to heal Elizabeth Maxwell and is able to heal them a little.
Alexis Ayala blinks softly, watching Pyotr leave, and looking to Maggie, with a helpless shrug.
Maggie McQueen frowns a bit as Pyotr dismisses her attempt at a thank-you and tries to smile at Alexis. It comes off as a scowl.
Angelica glances up at the others, after finishing with the one instrument, starting to use the other in silence, concentrating on the work being done.
MEDICAL: Angelica attempts to heal Elizabeth Maxwell and is able to heal them a little. MEDICAL: Angelica attempts to heal Elizabeth Maxwell and is able to heal them a little.
Pyotr Zagadka stops by the door and starts rifling through a strange cabinet, looking for something.
Maggie McQueen lays back and closes her eyes after smiling at Angelica and Alexis. Soon she is softly snoring.
Angelica gets the smelling stuff, waves it at Elizabeth, and shakes her a little bit to wake her up.
FIRST AID: Angelica has returned Elizabeth Maxwell to wakefulness with smelling salts.
Pyotr Zagadka growls and punches the side of the cabinet.
Elizabeth Maxwell gets woken up, with shaking and awful smell, blinking a little as she does. "Unh. Wha?" She glances around. "Something wrong?"
Pyotr Zagadka pulls his hand back, shaking it and muttering lowly in a cursive string of, well.. Russian curses.
Angelica glances over at Pyotr, raising her eyebrows.
Elizabeth Maxwell moves slowly on the bed, trying to set up. "Guess we didn't do too well tonight...." she sighs a little bit, standing very slowly, and trying to walk over to the cabinet.
Pyotr Zagadka leans back against the cabinet and there are tears threatening the corners of his eyes. "I saw them DIE! " he says quietly. "I had to fly in and leave them.. Disintegrated....." he rubs the palms of his hands against his eyes.
Elizabeth Maxwell sighs and shakes her head. "I saw one or two before I was hit... I'm sorry Pyotr... I wish we could have done something as well... we were under fire too fast, and too heavily..."
Pyotr Zagadka punches the cabinet again. "If someone could have just woken me up.. Or I had one more damned day to finish the weapon!" he groans.
Elizabeth Maxwell sighs and shakes he head. "a couple other people were taken out before I was, in the attack. we were thinned out too quickly..."
Pyotr Zagadka turns around. "We needed more people. And why Bates, dammit. I thought he was off limits!" he says, growling.
Elizabeth Maxwell sighs a little. "They didn't do anything fatal to him. That's what's off limits."
Pyotr Zagadka pahs. "if I was REAL smart... If I was REAL devious. I would make my delivery system for Red Dust set up so if I didn't enter a code from specific terminal at certain times it would go off.. Did ANYONE think of that?"
Elizabeth Maxwell tilts her head. "Guess we'll find out, then. That would require consistent contact with a specific terminal in the building, I'd think. He doesn't sleep there, to my knowledge."
Pyotr Zagadka nods. "But he does visit it often enough. There could be pattern. I not saying this is what he did. Just saying I can't believe no one thought of possibility."
Elizabeth Maxwell hmms and shakes her head. "A pattern with a several hour gap, anyway. I just don't know. He mostly is wanting to protect his own carcass, I'd think. Especially now, when everyone is gunning for him."
Pyotr Zagadka Grunts. "I should stuff him in tha Conversion chamber."
Elizabeth Maxwell shakes her head. "That has a separate locking code from everything else in there for a /reason/, I'm not going to unlock it without authorization from some of the group leaders. It isn't a toy, or a petty revenge device to use on a whim. Although..." She smiles just a little. "A Bates loyal to /our/ cause might be a nice change of pace..."
Pyotr Zagadka smirks. "Exactly what I thought." he says with a smirk.. and that strangely evil glint in his eyes.. that devil-may-care look.
Elizabeth Maxwell shakes her head a little bit. "Still, not without further authorization, from someone sane, and not holding a furthered direct grudge from what happened three weeks ago."
Pyotr Zagadka raises a brow. "I don not hold a grudge."
Elizabeth Maxwell nods. "I mean one of the upper people. Which... right now excludes Mike, Julie, and Heather, at least partially, from being accepted as authorization."
Pyotr Zagadka snorts.
Elizabeth Maxwell shrugs a little bit and smiles. "Those are the ones... directly involved. Which would make me concerned about them wanting him put int it for petty revenge."
Pyotr Zagadka shrugs. "I just wanna do it cause it would be fun."
Elizabeth Maxwell just... looks over to Pyotr, at that. "'Fun'? There's nothing 'fun' about it." She shakes her head.
Pyotr Zagadka shrugs again. "Well, we need to find our entertainment SOMEWHERE."
Elizabeth Maxwell hmms a little. "If you like 'fun' of that sort, you should talk to Tyler about it. He's the one who enjoys violent entertainments."
Pyotr Zagadka shrugs. "I am just a realist in me entertainment." Man, he's been a cold sonuvabitch lately. "Anyway. I need Syringes.. and I need to get back to work. SO we have a bit more back up next time we decide to get ourselves slaughtered."
Angelica glances over at that, bringing over a box of syringes. "Here you go."
Elizabeth Maxwell frowns a little and shakes her head. "Again, talk to the others. I'm not going to do it without their approval, regardless of my own opinion of him."
Pyotr Zagadka shakes his head. "It was just suggestion. Personally, I just wanted to get minds off things. But I have my project for that."
Elizabeth Maxwell hmms a little bit at that and nods. "How well is your project coming along?"
Pyotr Zagadka smiles a bit.. ferally. "Oh, very well. I think anyway. Soon I will be able to give demonstration but.. IF you wish you can look it over before that. But you can't tell anyone what you see until the demo."
Elizabeth Maxwell smiles a little bit and nods. "Oh, I'll wait and look then... you should probably keep it covered in the lab, though, when not working on it, sometimes other people come down into there."
Pyotr Zagadka shrugs. "I keep it locked in case when not there."
Elizabeth Maxwell nods a little bit. "I mean when I'm down there. I don't lock it when I'm inside..."
