The El Paso Supply Depot Raid
Location: Maxwell Ranch and El Paso
Synopsis: It started as a simple raid, becomes dangerous infighting, and than the Raid becomes almost Deadly
Elizabeth Maxwell is on the mat still, stretching idly, trying to make sure she's properly stretched in all directions in any manner possible, even trying to spread her legs sideways in a full split, like she's trying to do now.
Heather O'Leary slips down from the Kitchen, her hands holding a glass of water, and in her other hand, is a sandwich. She settles down on the stairs, to watch Liz get all sweaty.
Elizabeth Maxwell isn't getting sweaty, at least not yet... She tries to bring the split out wide enough to bring her rear clear down to the floor, smiling as she sees Heather. "Hi honey..."
Heather O'Leary grins, "Open a little wider, dear..." She winks.
Elizabeth Maxwell laughs a little, trying to open wider in fact, spreading down as far and hard as she can.
ATTRIBUTE CHECK: NAME: Elizabeth Maxwell ATTRIBUTE: Agility (Hard) SUCCESS
Heather O'Leary grins, "Now, if you didn't have your shorts on...." She grins, and lets that hang as it is. She takes a bite of her sandwich.
Elizabeth Maxwell laughs a little and blushes slightly, raising her eyebrows. "What you think I'm practicing it for, if not for that?" She grins happily. "So what you been up to?"
Heather O'Leary chuckles softly, "Not much. Been doing a little flying today, trying to find a Visitor Skyfighter Maintenance Depot... Looks like El Paso is about as close as we can get..."
Elizabeth Maxwell oohs a little and nods, considering that. "Well, that's quite a trip..." She smiles a little. "Not as far as some trips though, I suppose..."
Heather O'Leary nods, "Not as far as Pluto... but it will be our second longest distance to go on a Raid...."
Elizabeth Maxwell smiles and shrugs a little bit. "For a raid, yes. For anything else, New York was longer, and we should go back sometime by ourselves, to have a more fun vacation without an incident."
Heather O'Leary sighs softly, "I don't know... I am not sure I can turn the President down, if he asks me again...."
Elizabeth Maxwell sighs and shakes her head. "Is he going to pester you about it every time you leave the dust zone?"
Heather O'Leary shrugs, "I was ordered by Tyler to leave New York before I could tell the President No again... So he will ask me the next time he hears about me being in New York... Maybe we could go someplace else...?"
Elizabeth Maxwell nods a little bit. "Well, if we need to, sure."
Heather O'Leary shrugs, "Besides, other than go shopping, New York is boring."
Elizabeth Maxwell hmms and nods a little bit. "Well, what places are more exciting, to go to for a break?"
Heather O'Leary looks thoughtful, "Depends on what you want... I liked it the last time I was in Hawaii... No Visitors there either, for now... Alaska's a tad cold, but Snow is interesting to me, since I never saw it growing up... Umm..." She shrugs
Elizabeth Maxwell smiles a little at that, raising her eyebrows. "Hmm... I didn't think it'd be cold enough at least in lower Alaska to have snow cover, at least at this time of year..."
Heather O'Leary smiles, "I was talking up in Northern Alaska, actually...."
Elizabeth Maxwell oohs a little and nods. "Northern Alaska.... yikes. That gets really cold... colder than I've ever been in, matter of fact." She smiles a little.
Heather O'Leary nods slightly, "It tends to, yes... As for how cold you've been... I think I remember the coldest... Up in the mountains..."
Elizabeth Maxwell laughs a little and nods. "Yep. Up here, and on the mountain, during the winter. But winters here, while cold enough for the dust to work, aren't exactly the kind of conditions like the Arctic Circle might have..." She grins. "At any rate..." She smiles.
Heather O'Leary chuckles, "Ever been to Russia? I know a good contact there that can likely get me some Parts for the Harrier, parts the US Government doesn't have... NOT to mention, the black Market there... We can get plenty of weapons... Work and, with some of the countryside there... good vacation place."
Elizabeth Maxwell raises her eyebrows a little bit at that. "Hmm... parts for the Harrier, in Russia? that's interesting." She smiles a little. "How good or bad is their government behaving above the dust zone, though?"
Heather O'Leary shrugs slightly, "Black Market is pretty rife over there... The Government above the Dust Line? Well, it is much like the Government there has been for awhile. Although, With my Marine Credentials, they will be good to me."
Elizabeth Maxwell hmms a little, raising her eyebrows at that. "Really, that's interesting... even if you're dealing with black marketers?"
Heather O'Leary laughs, "Well, it's a grey area over there... You see... The Government official deplores the Black Market, but they get 'taxes'... kickbacks, really, so they let things go."
Elizabeth Maxwell laughs a little bit and nods, raising her eyebrows. "Ah... so it goes on unabated as long as they get their cut. Interesting way of doing it. As long as it has good stuff, we should probably check into it, then..."
Heather O'Leary nods slightly, "Well, if we could find a couple people interested, that could fly, we could take two Squad Ships over, and I'd happily get the Harrier a few Missiles.... Not to mention, I'd like to see about some of the British Parts they have. I've got this one held together with Bubble Gum and Baling Wire...."
Elizabeth Maxwell laughs a little bit. "Well, I can fly, so can you, just that we'd need a couple people to help load." She smiles a little.
Heather O'Leary nods, "But I like to fly with you as my co-pilot." She winks, and finishes her sandwich. After she swallows the last bit of bread, meat, and cheese, she picks up her glass of water, from the stair besides her, and takes a long drink.
Elizabeth Maxwell smiles and snuggles, nodding. "Well, true. We'd need people to load anyway, as noted previously..." She hmms a little. "Wonder how well I can scramble a radio signal, and link two systems up..."
Ryan Rivers comes down, in grey sweats, looking like he's ready to pump some weight. He has a gym back thrown over his shoulder, which has his sword, but other than that.. Nothing too big here. He nods to the girls, preparing to do his work out thing. He doesn't stay much save the work out when he has work the next day, but he figures in the two hour 'workout' time, he can see if there is anything he is needed for... And the gym equipment is free.
Heather O'Leary arches an eyebrow, "Why do you need to scramble a Radio signal?" She looks confused, but when it comes to stuff like Liz's sudden off shoots in tangents, that is not new. She smiles at Ryan, "Hey there, big guy. If you need a spotter, let me know. eh?"
Elizabeth Maxwell smiles a little. "Well, I was thinking, if I could scramble it to prevent easy jamming or override, I could link systems between two squad vehicles. If I could get the second to mirror the first exactly... it wouldn't be useful for combat, but when we need to take two squad vehicles, if we could link the autopilot to the controls of the one we were in, it wouldn't take so many pilots to do it."
Heather O'Leary bites her lip and shakes her head, "And if the Link fails, for even an instant, the other Squad Ship could go down..."
Elizabeth Maxwell scratches her head. "If it failed, it'd have to revert to the other autopilot. I could probably program that to follow us on radar..."
Ryan Rivers smiles faintly, putting on a modest (at least to him) 100 pounds. "Well, if you want to you can... I usually don't do anything too bad during the week... I get a bit of exercise while on the beat. More so when I am doing it on foot like they do some days."
Heather O'Leary stands up and moves over to Ryan, "Unless you'd rather kill some Visitors tonight?" She glances at Liz, "I don't know... Kinda risky either way, if you ask me... but I just fly em, I don't understand enough about Visitor Tech.... With our Tech, I'd hate to try something like that...."
Elizabeth Maxwell laughs a little bit and scritches Heather on the back of the head. "Well, I could be up for that, sure..." She grins. "I think I can make the switch over smooth, actually. Just needs to mode switch, that won't take long enough on one of their computers for it to drop really."
Ryan Rivers blinks as he doesn't even get his first chance to push iron before the offer is made. "You guys planning a raid? ...I guess /that/ is what the talk is about," Ryan replies, sitting up as he rubs behind his head.
Heather O'Leary nods, "Got to raid a Visitor Maintenance Depot in El Paso, so we can repair a Skyfighter's Laser Cannons...."
Ryan Rivers ahs and nods. "Well, if you need me, let me know... Just hope I don't get shot. Nothing is more annoying than having a late night mission... Getting shot up, and then having to do a 14 hour work shift the next day," Ryan offers with a weak smile.
Heather O'Leary smiles, "I'll need you Ryan... Just going to be you, Elizabeth, Myself... Maybe Miss Ayala...
Elizabeth Maxwell smiles a little bit. "Sounds like a party..."
Heather O'Leary nods slightly, "I Think we'd better get ready... at least the El Paso Base we are going after is pretty quiet at night...." She moves over towards her weapon Locker, and looks in it. She grabs her sword, Laser Rifle, and MP-5. The Pistols she has in her room.
"Right... Could you get me an M16... Not like I carry one around," Ryan replies, getting his 'uniform' out from his gym bag. He takes off his shirt, then pauses to look at Heather and Elizabeth and realizes he isn't in the LAPD gym, where there are rarely women that come in. "Guess I should go into the restroom and change," he offers with an absent-minded chuckle as he gets his bag.
Elizabeth Maxwell nods a little bit, grabbing a laser rifle and pistol, and her little handgun, then laughs at Ryan's comment. "Well, if you really feel a need. Not like we're gonna watch."
Heather O'Leary chuckles, and grabs an extra M-16, "Your M-16'll be on the bench..." She sets it down on the weight bench, than moves upstairs with her weapons. Her clothes are upstairs anyways.
Alexis Ayala is quietly eating some sandwich leftovers.
Heather O'Leary is heading to her room to change, carrying her Katana, a Laser Rifle, and a H&K MP-5... Might something be up?
Alexis Ayala blinks, looking to Heather, "Heather?" she says.
Elizabeth Maxwell slips up from the basement just after Heather, heading in about the same direction.
Heather O'Leary glances at Alex, "Yes? Alex?" Seems Alex noticed her, before she could get changed. Poor Ryan, having to wait on the Girls to get into their 'Raiding Clothes'.
Alexis Ayala hmms, "I something up? Usually I'm the only one carrying weapons around..."
Elizabeth Maxwell is carrying weapons as well, scarily enough, and smiling.
Heather O'Leary chuckles, "Well, I was going to ask you, after I got changed, if you wanted to start to earn your keep around here, by joining us on a Raid?"
Alexis Ayala ahs, "Just let me get the combat gear on...I'm going to have to ask Ryan if he can get me some UBT's from SWAT...off the market or surplus or something..."
Heather O'Leary smirks, "Just use Black Clothing, Alex...." She shrugs, "I've got to go get changed...."
Alexis Ayala nods, "The UBTs have special pockets for clips and such."
Ryan Rivers enters up from the basement at last, dressed in his 'superhero' clothing, an M16 strapped to his back. "So, when are we going out?" He pauses to look at Alexis. "Equipment from SWAT? Not sure I could even get stuff from that without people wondering."
Alexis Ayala nods, "I've seen UBT's on the market all the time, for SWAT Fanatics, figuring it might be easy for you to get a hold on, not the guns, just UBTs."
Elizabeth Maxwell smiles a little at that. "Probably can get one next time we go up north or something, then, at a surplus store."
Alexis Ayala hmms, "I could use some...good for clips and such, but I'll get my fatigues on all the way, where are we meeting?"
Elizabeth Maxwell glances to Heather for that.
Alexis Ayala looks to Ryan, "Maybe if you have any going out for surplus you could manage to get me some sooner than our next trip? Not a huge deal?" before looking to Heather as Elizabeth does.
Heather O'Leary comes back from her room, all changed into Black Jeans, a Black Long Sleeve Shirt. Her hair is not visible. She has it up under a Black Knit Cap. "We'll meet out in the Barn."
Alexis Ayala nods, "I'll be right there then." she says, putting away her sandwich.
Heather heads to the Barn/Hangar.
Alexis Ayala waves to Heather, "Heading upstairs for gear."
Heather O'Leary is dressed in her 'black commando' jeans and sweater. Not to mention the Knit Cap holding her 4+ feet of Hair up and out of the way. She is checking her weapons, while also muttering a plan to herself. Out of that might be heard, "Wish Julie was here to go over the plan with.... I hate ground pounder Mission planning...."
Elizabeth Maxwell slips into the barn, assault clothes on as well, only the rifle visible strapped to her back. She dangles her cap, since she doesn't want to put it on yet, and smiles at the others.
Alexis Ayala sighs, heading down from her room, a shotgun over her shoulder with an M16, after emptying her gun racks upstairs, with the PSG-1 in a case she holds at her side.
Alexis Ayala is also wearing full fatigues, fully-camouflaged.
Michael Donovan follows the fashion trend that seems to be popular with everyone else. He carries his standard armament, a regular pistol in his shoulder holster and a Visitor sidearm at his hip.
Ryan Rivers is just wearing his usual mission clothing, only having two guns... His rifle the M16 and his handgun the Glock. Too much stuff can weigh a person down, so he would rather have the mobility than the extra firepower. He just shrugs to Heather, "Just take it slow and easy. Nothing more you can do."
Alexis Ayala hmms, and sets the M16 down, electing to take the Visitor Rifle instead.
Elizabeth Maxwell smiles and snuggles Heather happily. "It'll be fine, honey. Don't worry so much."
Alexis Ayala hmms, looking to Heather, "I might have a plan, I discussed it with someone already, I think Ryan might have heard part of it. There's a bit too it, but I think it has a good chance of working..."
Heather O'Leary smiles at Ryan, "Thanks..." She sighs softly, "Well folks...." She sighs, giving a Mission briefing with Face-black on. Ought to go great, eh? "In case you didn't know, that Skyfighter over there..." She motions to #570, "Got it's Laser Cannon Barrels a little bent. Nothing we have can cut them off. So to repair that one, we have to go get some stuff from the Visitors. I found a Maintenance Depot we can get to easily enough." She pauses, and shrugs, "Doc Parrish approved this raid, so if that is on anyone's minds, no need to worry about that." Heather always hesitates, if it looks like, even if only to her, that she is stepping beyond the bounds of a low level leader.
Ryan Rivers merely looks at the new girl for a second, returning the wave. He would ask about her, but well, now is not the time. He just nods before looking to Heather and Alexis. He doesn't mind who makes the plan... Just as long as it works. That thought in mind, he just leans against the wall, smiling faintly as he does.
Heather O'Leary glances at Alex, and nods, "Well, after you see the Photo's I took from the air, of the Base, we'll see if your plan is feasible...." She motions to an aerial recon photo she took from a Skyfighter. She's not near as good with Cameras as the Ex-Newsman, but it is not too blurred.. She shrugs, "It is a fairly tightly spaced base. Vehicle Storage appears to be inside some Hangars of the Old El Paso airport." She shrugs a bit, looking uncomfortable... "I figure they store the repair tools and materials in there as well. Next to the hangars is their barracks. I figure we can fly a Squad Ship, and 1 Skyfighter in, and take the Barracks out from the air, while the Squad Ship Lands." She pauses, "That should leave just the two squads of Shock Troopers on guard to deal with. Either we land and go out weapons blazing, or we land the Squad Ship, than have the Skyfighter go in and take out the Barracks, than go in fighting." Simple, direct... that is her idea of a Raid Planning.
Heather O'Leary hasn't, as yet, noticed Maggie, cause she's being stared at, and her moderate fear of public speaking is acting up.
Juliet Parrish has even managed to get away from the city to be here for Heather's big debut, though she remains at the back, and as in the shadows as she can. Yup, just watching.
Maggie McQueen hangs back a bit and watches everyone
Alexis Ayala nods slowly, "My plan is a little more indirect, but if we pull it off right, we could split the squads and might not have to fight two squads at the same time, or might not even have to fight two squads, my question is, is if anyone here is a heavy weapons shooter, and if anyone might be able to sneak in unnoticed, before I lay out what I've thought out for this type of scenario."
Elizabeth Maxwell watches the planning, smiling happily at Heather as she speaks.
Ryan Rivers just listens hrmming to himself as he does. "Strike as fast as possible to take away their air supremacy, then use our own aircraft to support ground. Sounds simple enough."
Juliet Parrish remains back where she is, though her instinct is to walk up and smack Alexis upside the head. She asked O'Leary to plan this raid for a reason. She can see she is going to have to have a talk with the other woman. She smiles faintly as the picture of what Tyler would do if he were here pops into her head.
Maggie McQueen tilts her head and listens carefully
Heather O'Leary glances around at the assembled fighters, "Well, Martin's not here... He normally handles the heavy weapons... But are you thinking of having ONE Person hold off a Squad of Shock Troopers?" She doesn't like the idea of one person taking on a group of 4 to 8 Shock Troopers, alone...
Alexis Ayala nods, about Martin not being there, and shakes her head, "No, not at all, it's not like that." she says, shaking her head. She sighs, and then steps up to the photo, before asking again, "Granted, Martin's not here, Do we have another heavy Weapons person?"
Heather O'Leary shrugs, "Tyler's pretty good with the BFG's... But not anyone else I know of..." She sighs and shrugs, "I think with myself, or Donovan at the controls of a Skyfighter, that would handle the big guns."
Alexis Ayala nods, "Would you be content to sit at maximum range and pelt them from afar?"
Heather O'Leary frowns, "I'd rather we didn't shoot the base up too much, because that alone would possibly make it so we couldn't get the stuff we needed. If it was a standard, in, kill them all, get out raid... it would be fine. Personally, I think just destroying the Barracks, than using our Ground Team's aim to take the Visitor's down is best. Less collateral Damage to the Base. The Barracks I am sure are just barracks, because they are well away from the Hangars, and no Vehicles are ever near it." She motions to another picture, this one shows a ground view of the base. "I watched them for a few hours... IF the Shock Troopers take up refuge in the Hangars, getting them out will be up to the ground team anyways."
Ryan Rivers hrms. "I know I haven't had training in that. Police here. I know it is likely simply point and shoot, but well, likely should let someone else do it. I could always take a turret... Or just try and draw them out. Hiding behind an object while people go out in the open to shoot you up isn't too hard."
Maggie McQueen nods
Alexis Ayala nods, "That's why you'll just be shooting the barracks and the Lizards, what we want is them to think the main concentration of the attack is from the your Skyfighter, while we slip, run, or dash into the Hangar and use it against them, we'll have more cover than they will, and with their barracks destroyed, they'll have to pick between targets, while we leave someone off in the distance, from the same side the ground team comes from, to pick them off from yet another direction, farther from the visitors, but closer to the ground team, if it's done right, they won't even know there's fire coming from another direction, they'll be slower to react because they won't know where to put the resources they still have."
Elizabeth Maxwell nods a little at Heather and smiles. "I suppose we should be careful with the shooting even on the ground..." she considers that, and hmms.
Alexis Ayala adds, "Granted, the strategy IS more complex."
Alexis Ayala says, "It's harder to pull off than a simple strategy, but if it works, we'll be better off, and it doesn't, we can still easily regroup.""
Heather O'Leary shakes her head, "I think, since Julie told me to do this, that this time, we'll go with my plan. No one here is really trained in Military Tactics, other than a few... I think the Guerrilla Tactics we have used as a group before is our best bet... Besides, without having people with Heavy Weaponry pointing at the Visitors, we'd have to depend on Skyfighters... Since this is a raid I asked for, I feel I have to be on the ground... Complex Strategy, at the moment, is not something I want to try and have to give orders for. We aren't trained for it."
"And I think it's time to get some action happening and stop all the talking. It's not getting us anywhere." The voice, familiar and yet more gruff than most would recognize, comes from the back. (Julie)
Alexis Ayala blinks, as she's told she's not trained in Military Tactics. She nods slowly, "That's why it's still a relatively simple strategy, if we CAN pull it off..."
Alexis Ayala looks to the gruff voice...
Heather O'Leary frowns slightly at the voice, than peers closer, is that the Doc?
Ryan Rivers smirks as he hears the voice. "Someone spoke my mind... But I really didn't want to get caught up in the argument. The night isn't getting any younger, that's for sure."
Alexis Ayala sighs, "I'm just looking to go in with a slightly stronger strategy that might mean less injuries on our side..."
Maggie McQueen looks around to see who the new voice belongs to.
Heather O'Leary sighs, "But it won't. OTHER than a few people, and of those, only you are hear, few people know how to pull it off. We go in my way. If you don't like it, Alexis, you can stay here." She looks at Elizabeth and Mike, "One of you want to fly the Skyfighter? I'll handle the Squad Ship."
Juliet Parrish sighs softly, pushing off the wall and out of the shadows. She eyes Alexis as she steps forward. "And I think that Heather is right. It's best to go with the tried and true, with our strengths...going up against Shock Troopers is not the time to be trying a new tactic, especially without the right people around to fill all the parts." She turns her attention to O'Leary then, and winks. Maybe she hadn't needed to step forward.
Alexis Ayala looks to Heather, "The only one that needs to know how to pull it off is the Leader, if everyone else does what is planned for the, that's what strategy is about, and tried or true or not, History has proven that tried and true is going in with more than a bunch of machismo gun-runners guns blazing."
Juliet Parrish frowns sharply now as Ayala continues to push. "O'Leary's made her decision. She's the one I chose to organize this, and we're going with what she's decided. As she said, if you don't like it, you don 't have to come."
Michael Donovan frowns slightly, adding his voice to that of Heather and Julie, "Since time is of the essence here, I don't think we've really got time to revise things too extensively, Alexis. Heather -has- experience with this, and with the members of this unit. I trust her and us to get this job done right."
Alexis Ayala blinks, and looks to Juliet, "Well, I'm sorry if I don't like it, but telling me that if I don't like, I don't have to come is a serious leadership cop-out if you ask me. And I've had problems with Heather's leadership already, but like a good soldier, like a good member of the Resistance, I didn't bring it up except with someone else in my chain of command, privately and politely, but if you want to cop out, that's friggin fine with me, MA'AM"
Alexis Ayala says, "I'll go, but I'll go because if my comrades are getting shot at, I should get shot at to.""
Maggie McQueen watches the discussion wide-eyed.
Alexis Ayala says, "I’ve been brushed aside and depreciated since day-one here, and I’m feeling just a /bit/ like a degenerate 13th wheel, I apologize if I've become a bit disagreeable, honestly, and I’m going to step aside, because I've already made a fool and an ass of myself."
Heather O'Leary moves over to Alex, "Fine. Tell you what... You want to lead the fucking raid, do it. I'll stay here, and practice my 'Leadership tactics' so that they are up to your damned desires. I'm not a ground-Trained Leader. I am a frigging pilot, doing my best to keep my people safe. You don't like it? Fine. DO something about it. ACT Like a fucking brainiac, and tell me longer than 5 minutes before a fucking raid." The Irish Temper shows.
Alexis Ayala looks at Heather, "I'm not a fucking brainiac, and I never said I was, I just want to be a LITTLE more appreciated here, and I thought I'd make an effort tonight, but I was wrong, my strategy might not work, it might be a little too risky, and I'm done, I've been put in my place."
Alexis Ayala says, "That's what happens, you need to be put in your place because you're running your mouth, someone does it, I was off my rocker, out of my place, and disrespectful, and there's a fourth I'm thinking off that doesn't come to mind...I'm sorry, and I'll do what needs to be done."
Heather O'Leary rolls her eyes, "No... But you *will* be... After we get back. If you are coming, get your ass in the Squad Ship." She points to #191. "As for being appreciated, perhaps if you didn't think you had to always be right, which I've seen MANY times already, you wouldn't feel that way." She herself boards the Squad ship, and slams her duffel bag onto the Co-Pilots seat.
From outside, "ENOUGH!" Juliet...shouting? Uh-oh. And the look in her eyes, well, anyone that wants to mess with her right now must have a death wish. "I've had enough of this. You had your chance to voice your idea, the person who was assigned to plan this has decided, while it might have worked with more preparation time, she's sticking with her previous plan. That's the end of it. Capiche? Anyone who doesn't like it can chose to join the Bates' Brigade. The rest of you, suit up, and get your asses on the plane before I consign you to the medical area with laser burns."
From outside, Alexis Ayala mumbles something about 'cop-out' again, but nods slowly.
From outside, Maggie McQueen gets her ass on the plane, quickly.
From outside, Elizabeth Maxwell shakes her head at the fighting, and gets into the squadship to wait.
From outside, Michael Donovan scowls at everything and everyone. "This is a resistance movement, people. Not a mutual admiration society. If you want to feel wanted, find a fucking support group. If you want to save the world, get on the goddamn squadship."
From outside, Juliet Parrish stands outside the ship, glaring at those still waiting outside, just waiting to make good.
From outside, Ryan Rivers just shakes his head quietly, though to what exactly is known as he gets on the ship.
Heather O'Leary sits at the Pilots seat. Her body tense. She starts the start-up procedure.
Juliet Parrish has strapped herself in, looking less than happy. Whee!
Pyotr Zagadka has been less then happy since he got back from New York so nyah on Julie. He pulls himself into the ship, readjusting something under his jacket, and slips into the nearest chair hopefully closest to the rear.
Ryan Rivers buckles himself in as well, just offering to Heather. "Just take a few breaths... Just take it out on the Visitors. I know that's what I do," he says with a weak smile. He seems to be in better spirits. But well, he usually doesn't get down for too long.
Alexis Ayala finds a place to sit down, and, with a sigh, she does so, not really sitting herself down next to anyone, she doesn't need to be saying anything right now. She just needs to do what needs to be done.
Maggie McQueen quietly buckles herself in a back seat, not wanting to draw attention to herself.
Heather O'Leary nods and flashes a quick smile to Ryan, and she flips the switch to close the hatch. "Everyone ready to go kick some Alien Ass?" Her voice, while still filled with previous tension, is a little lighter. Hopefully, she gets to kill a Shock Trooper with her bare hands, or maybe the sword... Yeah, the sword. She has it on her hip, all nicely sheathed and everything.
(Heather O'Leary) - Visitor Squad Ship #191 fires up, and is ready for take off. the Pilot taxi's it to the Yard.
Flight to El Paso
(Heather O'Leary) - Visitor Squad Ship #191 moves towards the Visitor Base. It appears to be heading for a landing near the Hangars.
<ResRadio> Heather O'Leary says, "As soon as we are down, Mike... Take out the Barracks."
From outside, (Michael Donovan) - Visitor Skyfighter #200 sticks by the Squad Ship's wing, ready to break away to circle around as soon as the other ship begins its descent.
<ResRadio> Michael Donovan says, "Copy that."
From outside, (Heather O'Leary) - Visitor Squad Ship #191 lands within 50 feet of the Barracks. As soon as it is down, the hatch opens...
<ResRadio> Heather O'Leary says, "Now Mike!"
Alexis Ayala looks up, getting ready to disembark.
Heather O'Leary grabs her bag, and pulls out her MP-5. She slips it over her shoulder, and grabs the Laser Rifle. That she holds. "As soon as Donovan takes out the Barracks, we go for the Shock Troopers..."
(Michael Donovan) - Visitor Skyfighter #200 swings around at a tight arc. Whipping about sharply, the craft begins to open fire on the barracks.
The Barracks goes up in flames from Skyfighter #200's expert marksmanship. It explodes in some extra blue flames, as the Power Cells for the Shock Troopers Rifles and Pistols explode. The remaining Shock Troopers look around in, well, shock, and move towards the Squad Ship that has just landed... a couple turning to fire at the Skyfighter. They miss though.
Shock Trooper 577, and his closest friend, 576 are shooting at the Skyfighter, from near the Hangar. 575 and 574 are racing from the hangar, towards the Squad Ship. From the Gate/Entrance to the Base, #336 and his buddies, 337, 338, and 339 come racing in.
Heather O'Leary leads the group from the Squad Ship. She calls out, "Everyone, pick a target. Alexis, show your aim, and take out one of those Visitors going after the Skyfighter..." She herself, chooses one of them herself. #577.
COMBAT: Heather O'Leary attacks Visitor Shock Trooper #577 with Visitor Laser Rifle and hits! DAMAGE: 47
Ryan Rivers just takes out his gun as he is at Heather's right side and offers a few bullets right for one of the Visitors. Looks like 575 is the lucky (or unlucky, depending on who you ask) number for the day.
COMBAT: Ryan Rivers attacks Visitor Shock Trooper #577 with Colt M-16A1 Assault Rifle-<burst> and Misses!
Pyotr Zagadka jumps down from the squadship just after Ryan and automatically sidesteps, Laser Rifle brought to bare and ready... He beads on the first Visitor he sees and squeezes the trigger, sending a lance of hyper accelerated photons their way...
COMBAT: Pyotr Zagadka attacks Visitor Shock Trooper #576 with Visitor Laser Rifle and hits! DAMAGE: 31
Elizabeth Maxwell sights out one of the other troopers, making sure to go after a third one from the two being gone after, so more are dropped at once. She pauses and watches the other three fire, then picks her target, sighting up at the main sight.
COMBAT: Elizabeth Maxwell attacks Visitor Shock Trooper #575 with Visitor Laser Rifle and hits! DAMAGE: 31
Juliet Parrish has her weapon up even before she's fully off the ship, As Heather gives orders, the 'head' of the Resistance cell simply picks up on one of the closest Lizards, firing off a shot as she lands on the ground, eyes narrowed as she hopes this shot gets lucky, being as there really wasn't much process of aiming done.

Alexis Ayala is racing out at the rear of the group, but letting herself be set back just a bit, it's not likely that their attacked from the rear, not at all, but she's not wanting to be surprised if they do, she'll be ready. At Heather's order she nods, taking a knee and then an aim, her coveted rifle in her hands, she takes careful aim.

Heather O'Leary lets a soft scream out, as the Visitor Laser Blast catches her in the chest. She is knocked back, and her Laser Rifle goes flying. As she lays on the ground, she is able to get her MP-5 up. She fires it full auto at the Trooper that shot her! She is hurting, but she dares not just lay there. Besides, it is not in her nature.

Elizabeth Maxwell whimpers softly as Heather gets hit, running over towards her and trying to check on her, holding the rifle up and blasting again with it once again, as she tries to keep Heather safe, and covered.
COMBAT: Elizabeth Maxwell attacks Visitor Shock Trooper #575 with Visitor Laser Rifle and Misses!
Stubborn woman. Juliet is going to have her hands full after this raid, as per usual. She can't spare any attention for the injured right now, and she can hear there's more than one. Perfect. No, for now she concentrates on making sure there aren't any more, if she can help it. Having avoided being hit herself, somehow, she takes aim this time, she focuses on taking down the Lizard she hit the first time.
COMBAT: Juliet Parrish attacks Visitor Shock Trooper #574 with Visitor Laser Rifle and Misses!
Alexis Ayala winces in pain, automatically dropping prone as her rifle slips from her hands, she finds the Visitor Rifle on her shoulder and slips it around from her prone position, firing.

Heather O'Leary is not fired upon, so she rushes to her feet. her H&K not being what she wants, she rushes right at 336. Drawing her Katana. Time to take this up close and in person. Besides, she may have argued with Alexis, but she is a team mate, and this Lizard took Alexis down.
COMBAT: Heather O'Leary attacks Visitor Shock Trooper #336 with Japanese Katana and hits! DAMAGE: 5
Ryan Rivers rolls out of the way of the attack, though when he tries to stand back up, he falls down. Though considering how much he is firing on the guy on the way down, he might hit him a few times.

Apparently, Juliet has found her weakness...aiming just makes her worse. Oops. Well, that's fine, this round she closes her eyes as she squeezes the trigger...she has to see if her theory, found in the heat of battle, is right. She is a scientist after all!

Alexis Ayala gets hit again, and already prone, the laser rifle clatters to the ground, Alexis' Shoulder burnt badly near her neck...

Heather O'Leary smiles as the enemy gets all bunched up. Time to ruin their day. She pulls out a pineapple grenade. She pulls the pin, and rolls the grenades towards the Visitors. "Die Scalies..."

Ryan Rivers just covers his head for the explosion, just shouldering his gun as he just makes his way toward Alexis, moving to try and pull her out of harm's way. He figures with the numbers reduced he can do that somewhat safely... And she should at least be more protected from stray shots if he is holding her.
Alexis Ayala is inert, so is easy enough for Ryan to pull her out of the way, though she does groan at being moved, her injuries looking rather severe, and both the PSG-1 and the Laser Rifle sitting there as she's pulled away.
Pyotr Zagadka looks away and hold himself against the shuttle as the grenades goes off.. He looks back a moment later and sees Alexis has taken another hit. Growling he crabwalks her direction, taking bead on the closest Visitor.. hoping for a good hit so he can drag Alexis out of harms way..
COMBAT: Pyotr Zagadka attacks Visitor Shock Trooper #338 with Visitor Laser Rifle and Misses!
Elizabeth Maxwell laughs a little at Heather's throw, smiling. "Good shot, honey...." She digs up her Glock and points it down towards one of the nearly fragged ones, and fires, to keep them away from wounded.

Not dead yet, but soon. Opening her eyes enough to peek out, Juliet finds her theory confirmed. Damn blind luck! Not being one to argue with luck, however, Juliet closes her eyes again and fires towards the bunched up aliens. Eenie, meanie, miney, moe...

Michael Donovan keeps a bead on the scaly bastard that he fired on upon arriving, especially given the trooper's own choice of target. With a snarl he gives the guy another zap.

Ryan Rivers just pulls out his field kit, looking over Alexis' wounds and sighing as he begins to treat her wounds. "With how often I do this... might as well considering being a doctor."

Alexis Ayala is most heavily injured from the shot she took near the neck on her shoulder, though she's not faring well from the chest either.
And they ALL.. FALL... DOWN! Well, except one. Still crab walking Pyotr comes up alongside Alexis and Ryan and narrows his eyes on the remaining scale head... He brings the end of the rifle to bear dead on him and squeezes the firing stud.
COMBAT: Pyotr Zagadka attacks Visitor Shock Trooper #339 with Visitor Laser Rifle and Misses!
Elizabeth Maxwell perks up at the continued persistence of the one enemy trooper, and grumbles softly, pulling the pistol up for another shot. "Need to keep you safe... you're the one who knows what we need..." she mumbles at Heather.
COMBAT: Elizabeth Maxwell attacks Visitor Shock Trooper #339 with Glock 17A 9 mm Pistol and hits! DAMAGE: 12
The only reason Juliet opens her eyes now is because she hears the sound of running feet...and thank God she does, it allows her to duck to the side, avoiding the spit...ewww. That's just plain -rude-! Narrowing her eyes, she quickly brings her rifle around to bare, firing a quick shot off.
COMBAT: Juliet Parrish attacks Visitor Shock Trooper #339 with Visitor Laser Rifle and hits! DAMAGE: 45 COMBAT: Juliet Parrish has knocked Visitor Shock Trooper #339 unconscious!
Maybe Heather should go all Conner Macleod, and yell, 'There Can be Only One' as her sword strike removes the head of Shock Trooper 338. When the head hits the ground, the look of shock on the Lizard Face is priceless, and rather funny. His buddy, well, that is another matter.... He is rocked by a bullet from Elizabeth, and a Laser blast from Julie. He is thrown in two directions at once. Yup... Flying roasted and tenderized Lizard... Anyone hungry? They say it tastes like Chicken
Maggie McQueen flinches from the venom attack and jumps back. As the lizard head rolls along, her gag reflex has her holding her mouth and looking a bit yellow.
Heather O'Leary glances around, to see if anyone else needs killing. Nope... well, to be funny she says softly, "There can be only one, eh Snakes?" The adrenaline rush fades, and she is rocked by pain. Time to gasp, and sit down. She looks down at her shirt, and sees where the Blast hit her. Damn, aren't they small enough already?
Alexis Ayala does the unconscious thing, there, she did it.
Maggie McQueen sheathes her bow and looks around, waiting for someone to give another order.
Juliet Parrish straightens as the last lizard falls, her rifle lowering next to her as she glances around, surveying who's hurt. "Mike," she calls, "Get my kit off the ride home?" The instruction given, she turns to moves towards the one who appears the worst hurt. Her own injury isn't noticed, yet.
Elizabeth Maxwell wraps her arms around Heather and strokes her hair. "Oh honey..." She tries to fix as much of the blast as she can, worrying about her girlfriend.
FIRST AID: Elizabeth Maxwell attempts First Aid on Heather O'Leary and is able to heal them a little.
Pyotr Zagadka grrrs and lowers his rifle as the last Reptile goes down.. And he looks moderately impressed at Heathers sword baring antics. He doesn't flinch at all when the one loses it's head over her. He looks over at Ryan and Alexis and frowns as he sees her muscles loosen with going unconscious. "Damn." he mutters. He looks up at Ryan. "Is she going be okay, Comrade?"
Michael Donovan seems ready to argue the point, but since Julie seems to be remaining upright okay and shows no signs of immediately life-threatening damage, he simply nods and hustles to the squad ship to obtain her kit.
Ryan has ignored his wound as well... But well, he is getting pretty used to that. "She's pretty bad, not as Ham was when he was hit... Still..." he doesn't finish his statement, getting to distracted by his work again. After all, medical stuff is important. At least he brought some of the stuff used to treat laser wounds though he doesn't seem the best in the world in using it. This is his first time using it in the field after all.

Heather O'Leary looks at Elizabeth, "Anyone other than Alexis down? If so... help them... Oh, and that new girl... She got Venom on her... better check her for allergic reactions... I can wait..." Sure, she *can* but she'll wait in pain.
Juliet Parrish comes up next to Pyotr, and smirks faintly. "She's going to be fine, don't worry." Juliet assures him, moving to kneel next to Ryan. She looks over the work that's already been done, and nods faintly. "Want me to try? I think Maggie could use a little help..."
Pyotr Zagadka isn't a medic by any means.. some doctor he is. :P Oh well. He stands and quickly shuffles off to help people up.
Elizabeth Maxwell sighs. "I'll check her, she's not screaming like you did, so I'm hoping not..." She looks over to Maggie, and slips over towards her.
Heather O'Leary watches as Liz heads over to Maggie, and smiles. While Liz is sidetracked, she stands up, and takes her Katana with her into the Hangar. Time to make sure there is no Snakes in there... There are, 5 Lizard Technicians. Not one is armed. She stands over them, "Stand up..."
Maggie McQueen looks at the burn on her from the venom and feels a bit faint from the carnage around her.
Heather O'Leary reaches for her radio, and speaks into it quietly...
<ResRadio> Heather O'Leary says, "Julie... What... What do you want me to do with the 5 Technicians?"
Michael Donovan emerges from the ship with the kit in question. Luckily, he opts not to deliver it to Julie via the 'Think Fast Method', but rather hands it to her.
Maggie McQueen smiles faintly at the woman who is taking the time to check her wounds.
Juliet Parrish frowns softly as she looks up, and sighs. She speaks quietly into her own radio before she nods her head at Mike to take care of Alexis for her. She, herself, stands, and moves towards the barn.
<ResRadio> Juliet Parrish says, "I'm coming."
<ResRadio> Heather O'Leary says, "Copy..."
The 5 Techs stand up. "Please, don't kill us...." Heather shrugs, "Not my call..." Mind you, if they see Julie's face, it will be a case of killing them anyways, so they don't tell Diana....
Elizabeth Maxwell checks over the burn and sighs, trying to wipe the venom off with a spare piece of clothing. "You'll need to get the burn fixed, I don't have any of the antidote, nor do I know entirely how to apply it..."
Pyotr Zagadka finishes helping with the wounded as best he can and stands up, brushing his hair from his eyes.
Juliet Parrish has her mask on, lucky techs. She comes into the barn, still wearing it, and about as hurt as Heather is, but she doesn't show it either. "They of any use to you?" she wonders to Heather.
Heather O'Leary shakes her head slightly, "I doubt it... If they are willing to do the work we need, likely they would sabotage it. No way to make sure they wouldn't be lying when they spoke... besides, they are Techs. They won't know anything we can use, except for repairing the stuff we have...."
Ryan Rivers just nods to Julie, letting her go off to do her thing and since Mike is handling Alexis... He looks to make sure that no one else needs treatment.
Pyotr Zagadka ahems and turns to Heather and Julie, walking over to them. "They could show me where smaller tech pieces are." he says, patting his shoulder bag. "Could be as useful as big stuff, da? Like comms and hand computers and what else."
Heather O'Leary looks at the techs coldly. Julie knows what she'd say to do, but than, she ain't the boss. She glances at Pyotr and nods slightly. "Sure, take this one..." She motions to the one with a stripe on it's breast, "He's likely the boss..." The others all have blank rank stripes. Just the lowest of the low.
Elizabeth Maxwell slips in quietly with Heather and Julie, after checking on Maggie, to see what's going on.
Juliet Parrish shrugs faintly, nodding. "You're running this mission," she offers after a moment, pulling her own rifle around. "It's your call. But I recommend you get them to show us just how useful they can be alive by moving what we need onto the ship."
Maggie McQueen walks over to the man kneeling by the unconscious woman and crouches down. "Hey, need any help here? I can carry her to the ship if she can be moved."
Heather O'Leary smiles coldly, "All right...." She points to the remaining four Techs, "Go find me ANYTHING that will help fix Skyfighters or Squad Ships. Not the Spare Parts. Tool Kits. Hull Plate Cutting Devices. Laser Repair Tools.... Especially some kind of Welding Device that will work on the Laser Cannon Barrels. She still has her Katana out, and says softly, "If you get them here and loaded, fast enough, maybe I won't have to kill you...."
Pyotr Zagadka brings up his rifle to bear on the tech's stomach and smiles a version of his Russian smile.. a cold and stony one that could freeze water. "Well, Comrade.. Look who get volunteered, Da?" he asks. "Play yuir cards right and I don't make bar-b-que. Lead tha way, tavorich."
The techs run off to follow orders. They wanna live! As they do Heather winces, because her chest wound is starting to hurt. She leans against the hangar wall, and closes her eyes.
Juliet Parrish frowns sharply and steps forward. "You alright, O'Leary?" she wonders.
Elizabeth Maxwell frowns at seeing Heather like that, walking over to her and wrapping arms around gently.
Heather O'Leary says softly, "I took a shot right her..." She motions to the area right above her right breast, and her right lung. "It's getting a little hard to breath...."
Juliet Parrish frowns a little more deeply at that, and seeing as Mike brought her kit over, she nods. "Lemme see..." She gets in closer for an inspection, purely professional!, hmming to herself.
Ryan Rivers sees Mike go off and that means he can continue to do his work. "Nah... I want to stabilize and try and get her awake before moving her," he offers to Maggie before working some. "So... What's your name? I'm Ryan... I'd shake your hand, but the blood and all."

Heather O'Leary lifts her shirt. Like she cares if anyone looks at her burnt breast? Not really, she just wants to be able to breath.
Pyotr Zagadka is issuing instructions as he leads his entourage away. "Okay. I want it all, Comrades." he tells them. Bit of everything. Comms. Whatever you use for portable computers. Yuir smaller hand held electronics tools.. laser welder... data cores.." the list goes on.. all the small stuff they can get and carry. Anything interesting and, to him, cool.
Maggie McQueen nods and smiles lopsided. "I'm Marjory Dean McQueen, Maggie for short, which I ain’t." She chuckles dryly at her old joke. "Just tell me what ya want me tah do." she drawls.
Juliet Parrish reaches into her kit as she looks over the wound, and goes to work with temporary fixes...hopefully it will help. Question is, when will she deal with herself? Has she even noticed yet?
MEDICAL: Juliet Parrish attempts to heal Heather O'Leary and is able to heal them a little.
Heather O'Leary says softly to Elizabeth, "Make sure Pyotr doesn't fill the squad ship up too much... We need these repair tools." She winces as Julie works on her wound, and almost passes out from the pain, but she is able to keep to her feet, "Julie..." She gasps, "... Can I... Sit down?"
Elizabeth Maxwell nods to Heather. "All right, honey..."
"Absolutely not," Juliet answers, lifting a hand to her side as she gets a sudden stab of pain, frowning sharply. Her hand comes away sticky, but that of course she attributes to Heather's blood. "Come on, we'll find you a comfy spot."
"Well, right now... Um... Well, um, massage my shoulders?" Yeah, Ryan's jokes aren't that funny. "Seriously, just um, tie bandages around the wounds that I've treated which should be evident from the Laser Wound stuff I've put on it."

Heather O'Leary nods slightly, "OK... Julie..." She says softly, "You will get your wound looked at, right? I saw you get hit..."
Maggie McQueen looks like she is about to rub his shoulders before she realizes he isn't serious and then starts to do the bandaging like he said.
"What?" Julie frowns over at Heather, head tilting to the side.
Heather O'Leary says softly, "Julie... You were hit by a Laser blast... I saw it hit you." Her hand moves to the wound, to touch it slightly. Her hand was busy, cause Julie should feel the prick of a Needle. "Just some Pain Killer and Anti-biotic..."
FIRST AID: Heather O'Leary attempts First Aid on Juliet Parrish and is able to heal them a little.
Juliet Parrish inhales sharply, looking down at the prick, frowning sharply. "I didn't even feel i...it. Whoa." Suddenly the world spins, and Juliet sits heavily next to Heather, closing her eyes.
Ryan Rivers smiles faintly as Maggie was actually going to do it. "Hrmm... These wounds are worse than I thought... Here, help me get her into the Squad ship." He moves to pick up Alexis by the shoulders, trying to ignoring the wound in his leg that is still bleeding. Will he be able to summon the strength to ignore it and get her on? Fine out soon!
