A Terran Adventure (Part 43) - Graduation

Rate this Entry
On the Bridge of Spirit Avatar, I instruct the crew to prepare the ship for the jump into the unknown.

As the jump event fades and the unknown area of space takes it's shape around me, I note no immediate threats so I instruct the crew to perform a visual scan of the area while I prepare Spirit Eater and Spirit Buckler for the salvage operation.

Upon completing my final checks I recieve a report of the visual survey. No hostiles, and what appears to be the wreck of an Aran a ways off the bow of Spirit Avatar.

After issuing standdown orders to the crew of Spirit Avatar, I head to Spirit Eater and instruct the crew of Spirit Buckler to follow me.

Upon reaching the wreck with Spirit Buckler still 25+ km away, I take the nominal space walk over to the looming hulk and try to cut my way in through one of the damaged airlocks.

As with the other Arans, the automated defence systems cut in forcing me to back off or be killed. Heading back to Spirit Eater, I reach the bridge just as Spirit Buckler reports that they are in close enough proximity for visual targetting of the wreck.

Giving the order to Spirit Buckler to launch all marines, I instruct Spirit Eater to renezvous with the M7M so that I can take direct command.

Upon taking command of Spirit Buckler I instruct Spirit Eater to RTB to Spirit Avatar and to standdown. No sooner than Spirit Eater left for base, than the Marines reported successful infiltration and casualty free capture of another Aran and with another positive result... all members of the Spirit Bucaneers are now at Elite status.

With the marine squad back on board, I tow the salvaged Aran back to Spirit Avatar for the return trip to known space where more dangerous boarding missions are yet to come...
