"Ah! Y-yeah that sounds good. Just pull here and... yeah. Okay. Thanks!"

Zori tossed the weapon aside like it was made of bees and quickly grabbed the small gun that Yas had offered. She fell in line behind the soldier and clutched the pistol as if it was the only thing that would keep her alive.

Yas quickly scooped up the gun as it clattered across the floor, before it had a chance to finally fire.  He pulled out a strap from a pocket, attached it to the weapon, and slung it across his back. 

"I don't recognize the attackers or their sidearms. This might help us identify them later on.  Plus," he said with a toothy grin, "It's always nice to kill your enemy with their own weapon."
Probably not a Goat, either.

"Well we can't stay around for long." Remarked Keel.

"You guys can stay here and hold them off while the rest of us can sneak the diplomats out of here."

"Right on" said Hay.


Gesturing to the Diplomatic Party she pointed south, 'The next bastion is the Swamp of Merrimoor, we can get you guys there before the day is out if we hustle."

Turning to Keel she said, "Who's coming with and who's staying behind?"

//Awa-- com-- hour... Come in. Are you reading us?//

Following the affirmative response, the Captain continued the message, accompanied by the deep rumblings of a ship in active combat.

//We've engaged the ship in orbit. It's too dangerous for us to pick up the diplomats ourselves, but the Drason has already started evacuation using their shuttles. They don't seem to be targeting the Senate's craft. The Phai have a landing pad secured nearby, to the south. The invaders currently look like they're too busy fortifying to care much about a small group of escapees, but we have no idea when that will change. Get the diplomats out of there, and we'll send down the security team to help you retake the meeting chamber. Hopefully, we can hold them off long enough for the Senate to send aid. Good luck, team. Sidereal out.//

Meanwhile...

Above Myrinori's atmosphere, the Sidereal Hour and the still-invisible enemy ship exchanged blows. The Sidereal was maintaining the offensive, despite the formidable array of mass drivers on the opposing craft. Occasionally, they would broadcast an order to stand down and withdraw, but it was always met with a flat reply of "No."

"Sir, we've got two more ships entering the system... both Invader. We'll be in their line of fire in just under an hour."

"Evasive maneuvers, keep Myrinori between us and them as long as you can."

"Well I can hold myself up pretty well against these guys, but I'd much rather let hardened warriors take care of it. I'll take the diplomats." said Keel.

"Get the senators out of here already." said Kean as he was following Hay and Keel. He looked back at Zori and stopped for a second.

"Good luck." he said and quickly followed the senators.
There is, of course, a difference between having a laugh with someone, and having a laugh at their expense

Yas raised one eyebrow slightly as the Faiclori announced she would stay and fight.

"Whoever these invaders are, they seem to be content to hole up in the meeting room.  I can't hear anything following us."
Probably not a Goat, either.

The group made it rather uneventfully to the Phai stronghold, loading the diplomats and any other non-combatants onto the waiting shuttle. As they were boarding, a second, nearly identical craft landed nearby, opening up to reveal a small platoon of security officers of various species. Some were wearing Sidereal uniforms, some standard green Senate ones, and all were armed.

Inya watched as they marched off, perhaps 15 strong. She knew from experience that, on such a vessel as the Drason, the five or so green-shirts likely composed the entirety of the security force. She looked at the quickly filling evacuation shuttle, to the security force, then back to the shuttle, and decided that, ultimately, it was better that she remain planetside for the moment.



Upon back-tracking to the Great Tree, the Away Team encountered a few soldiers patrolling the outside. They were, for the moment, unaware of their presence, hidden by the planet's dense foliage. They would rumble occasionally, likely radioing in to the temporary base they'd set up.

//Away Team, we've done some scans of the interior, but between their cloaking technology and whatever the Phai already had set up, we can't give you much. We do know this much: they're not using shuttles to transport down. The ship is sending out pulses of energy at regular intervals now, focused around the area of the central chamber. They've likely got a transporter receiver set up inside. The Phai are preparing for a counterattack as we speak, but it will still be some time before they arrive. Head in, try to take out the receiver if you can. At least try to thin their ranks before they get a proper army down there.//

"Cool, you guys over there form up on me." Said Hay to some greenshirts. "We'll be the Alpha brigrade to draw their fire and test out there offensive capabilites, we'll group up on the knoll over there and give the others a chance to go in as the Beta Team." After synching their comms Hay gestured to Keel. "You down, Keel?"

"I'm down. Just tell me where to shoot." Keel joked.

As the senators and the group escorting them left R5 never seemed to follow them, instead he wordlessly stayed with the group at the great tree. It looked around, scanning the room for a discarded weapon, he soon located one, a pistol by the looks of it.

"OB, I advise you be prepared to "repair" any organics, I actually have some knowledge of autonomy my self so if you need assistance..." The droid trailed off as it walked over to the discarded pistol, slowly picking it up, and simply stared at it with its singular eye.

Isaak drew his own weapon, a ridiculous looking thing he had pieced together himself. It resembled an oversized pistol, too short to be a rifle but too long to be a pistol. It was covered with various switches and knobs, and a display on the back. Several wires poked hazardously from the casing.

"So we go in and take out the transporter while your group group acts as a diversion?", asked Isaak to Hay. "I don't suppose you know of any back entrances? We can't just go barging in the front door."

"It's a tree it doesn't have a fire escape" quipped Hay. "Beta's job is to take down what Alpha softened up and cut through long enough to extract anybody left alive. We'll cover you back out." And with that Hay boosted her voice aplifier to max and said:

"Sidereal, STRIKE!"
