Serenity RPG

Week 78 - Hulk Redux
It will be mine. Oh yes, it will be mine.

Not wasting any time, the two ships headed off into the black, steering for where they believed it they would intercept its track. In the sixteen day journey, shuttles went back and forth between the two vessels, bringing folks from one ship or another while they shared meals and company. Conner spent a great deal of time with the Captain, and Hawke and Al provided training sessions in Zero G, Martial Arts, Vacc Suit operations, etc. Most everyone participated, Ivy more enthusiastically than most.

Week 77 - Hawke
She's going to kill us in our sleep, I just know it!

The following morning, Brian called the Captain to the ship. When she arrived, she was hesitantly introduced to Valis, in the form of a brass-covered robot with an elegant female form. They explained that the Valis bot could roam anywhere about the ship but not go more than about 100m away on the outside or the robot would go idle. Lacking in expression and still learning how to use the body. The Captain thought she was beautiful and had no issue at all with her moving about the ship, helping the engineering team with their duties. She had been working on spider drones, small repair bots to fix critical systems in hard-to-reach areas and speed up maintenance. Since Mikki helped build the body, she had a bit of pride in the creation and no issue with her walking around. Reactions from the rest of the crew were mixed, ranging from Gale (completely ambivalent) to Carl (who racked is shotgun everytime the bot came into sight).

Week 76 - Powered Armor
No Captain, we don't have any in your size.

With Orchid’s strict “no guns” policy for unsecured personnel, Carl chose to stay on board with Ivy, Kurt, and Hart. Abigail was still sleeping off her stun and Brian remained cloistered in engineering with his lab. Grace wandered back into “marine country”, finding a surprising number of former CiW enlisted working there while Zeke and Jose worked on the Calypso. Orchid’s team had connected Valis up to the new frame and the download had begun. Valis assured the Captain that only the OS was being moved, the base personality, none of the data, which meant, in a sense, Valis was creating a child. Overall, the repairs and downloading was going to take two days.

Week 75 - Rejection
A body for Valis? What's the worst that can happen?

Kurt shuttled over from the Calypso and was escorted back to the infirmary, where Hart and Odette closed the doors and began to work on him while Conner paced back and forth outside with Ivy and the Captain. The procedure was very quick, less than an hour, and the recovery equally as fast, with Odette’s supervision. As Kurt regained consciousness, his eyes flew open and his body stiffened and Ivy rushed in quickly, putting her hands upon his head and instantly relaxing him. She sat there on the bedside, her face fierce with concentration as she explained that, when Kurt awoke, his ability was no longer limited to a short time frame and he was overwhelmed. She was helping him get a grip on it, and that he’d be fine.

Week 74 - Reunions
Yes, I can kill people with my mind. Why do you ask?

Later that evening, the Capt headed over to the Calypso seeking Conner. She found him in engineering, helping Zeke and Jose with maintenance, which was what he did when he was unhappy. Seeing her show up, Zeke and Jose suddenly found other places to be, and Conner stood there facing her like a man bracing to be struck. She explained that the Adm had proposed to her and that she did not say yes. Conner released the breath he did not know he was holding and asked her what she was going to do. She explained that being an Adm’s wife was not something she ever envisioned for herself. Conner in turn told her that, until things were sorted out with Kurt, he would be on the run and not fit to give her the life she deserved, and he would not blame her for accepting the offer. She took his hand, led him to his cabin, and showed him how silly she thought he was.

Week 73 - Proposal
Lyrette Coffey-Monroe, has a nice ring to it, doesn't it?

On the last day of the repairs, Hyacinth received a note from Orchid, asking him to ask the Capt if she would do a run for her. The trip was to pick up terraforming gear on Kerry and deliver it to Meadow, a word that had been being terraformed for a long time but was having environmental issues. The run was profitable and they needed the cash, but that left them traveling empty to the border so the Capt hunted down another job, finding a delivery of education kiosks from St Albans to Whitefall to supplement the burgeoning school system on that new colony.

Week 72 - Ivy-napped!
Again?! What am I, a library book?!

On the third day of repairs, a group of men showed up at the gate in black trucks, wearing body armor and with holstered weapons. They waited at the gate, after ringing the bell, and looked like they were trying desperately to not look hostile. The Capt and Gale went out to meet them and they explained they were the replacement team from VS Security, the corporation that the crew had contracted with for securing the compound. They were here to take up station and honor the contract, but they had one request…they wanted the body of Kevin Smalls, the lead guard who had been killed in the “altercation”. The Capt explained that Mr Smalls was not dead but was recovering in their infirmary and escorted the new leader, a Lt Wheeler, to see him.

Week 71 - Aftermath
Great, another powerful villain out there who hates us

Carl wounded and hiding in a guard shack, Gale face down in the grass, bleeding, and one guard dying on the sidewalk while the police surrounded the area and forced people to stand down. The remaining guards reluctantly surrendered their weapons and the police moved in, took everyone’s guns and started gathering statements. Stg Hawkes was ordering people loaded into cars, and paramedics were gathering Carl and Gale to take into medical custody. Carl stunned one of the paramedics and the cops stunned him back, knocking him out and loading him into the ambulance with Gale. The Capt did what she could to explain that the wounded had a better chance with Hart than the local hospital when Ivy tugged on her sleeve, pointed to the sky and quietly said “Wells is here.”

Week 70 - Crossfire
I said "Stop him!" not "Kill him!"

Overnight, Hy received a note from Orchid, indicating that her group had intercepted a transaction about a group of mercenaries being sent to attack the compound on Faraday, to take Ivy and kill everyone else. They were a rather (in)famous group (Macon’s Marauders) that used high-end gear, drop ships, etc and were used for hostile incursions. According to her data, the team had 24 hours before the mercenaries arrived. Hy took this directly to the Capt.

Week 69 - Abigail
It's not paranoia if they really are out to get me

While the crew was focused on lasers, Ivy noticed Abi lurking around outside. Carl and Hy headed out to collect Abi and bring her in. She explained she came to rescue Brian, and Brian explained that he was not a prisoner. Abi suggested that was because he was brainwashed and it became clear that Abi was not firing on all cylinders. However, when the Capt heard that she was a metallurgist, she asked Trevor to vet her and he spent the day researching Abigail to determine her background and risk level.
