Ah yeah, and that happened in Nevada… Oh yeah and that too…. Oh forgot , that too….
So the Nevada Base was a total loss. And was noticed based on the blast cloud.. Oh another day in the office well now on the Moonbase Alpha (the non-secret location base also know as the staging base we are keeping up for appearances). And we have the Chile base for what its worth..
At the moon base Alpha:
Smokey 'Yes the water was me to slow them down so I could get the rest of the people and things out before time was up. I only had like 5 seconds. We need to work on that base count down and the warnings.' (Smokey thinking another item for the Tiz's new base to add list – portal detection and the silent count down with notification to the team)…
"How did they track us to the Nevada base to open the portals" was a question asked by Shadow Goddess. Well, without Dr Goodman… While not in the base but outside the base somewhere but we know his communicator is active just he is not answering. No phone a friend for him I guess…
"Well, I checked us and removed the things she did after the mentalist intrusion".
Kincaid was surprised with 'Since when do we have a telepath, seriously? And why was I not told? I know we had a teleporter but also a telepath? Would have been nice to know that given the past altercation with the mentalist.' … crickets would have been herd if there were crickets on the moon base Alpha. 'You could have hung around more or asked' …
Shadow Goddess called a contact who is a mentalist and Smokey and Shadow Goddess did an experiment in blocking in finding Shadow Goddess by her friend. They went to the Coliseum in Rome and called her friend. Smokey tried to shield her from detection. Shadow Goddess's friend could not find her but her pre-cognition allowed her too. Experiment , well not so well. Back to drawing board on this shielding thing.. Back to moon base Alpha.
A short time later, Kincaid received some information from Athena on their project. Then he asked the team for assistance with retrieving something to assist his powers. (Smokey makes a mental note of 'Yes, vague but hey, we have worked with less of a thought not even on the back of the napkin yet.')
Kincaid asked Fury for assistance once he 'obtained' the GPS coordinates from Athena for his requested information. The location was in the Mariana Trench. Athena also informed Kincaid that the satellite she used was hacked and they probably know the location also. And were enroute to the location as she was telling us.
So not wanting to leave a message for Dr. Goodman that the team needed some rapid gills for a fishing expedition, Fury offered to transport us through the water down to the coordinates while we were in an air bubble and at rapid speed. The escape plan was for Smokey if anything happened to Fury to try to get everyone out before we were crushed into fish food (long shot but a viable backup plan).
Tix reconfigured he tank bot for water movement and combat.
We transported to the water surface and then Fury worked her magic.
We found the coordinates and well there was an alien ship on one of the shelves of the ledge of the trench over 4 miles down.
The ship was partial exposed on the shelf down the trench walls at over 4 miles down (there were 2 miles left to the absolute bottom of the trench). It was from the mid section with what looked like a phallic attachment like a star trek nacelle. Kincaid could sense power sources in the ship once we got close. Tiz sensed them also along with several smaller power sources which felt sort is like her bots.
Standing on it was about 2 inches of sediment but revealed a red metal that has glitter in it. A red glitters metal.
We sensed the incoming submarine with the others who knew of the location but were slower. Tiz sent her aquabot tank to intercept them while we checked the ship.
After a quick scan, Smokey tried to teleport the ship. Lets just say a medic was called as Smokey as he was down to 1 body left. Iota helped him with some injected medicine.
Fury sensed the water was inside the ship partially also.
A search of the shit revealed a tear in the side that exposed all 3 decks to the ocean but interior doors were closed to contain the sea water. Upon entering the room, a 6 armed bot of some weird construction awoke and came through a partially opened door. Kincaid attacked which his killing attach seemed to heal and power it up more. Shadow Goddess, Tiz and Smokey attacked it and killed it.
Moved into the first sealed door. Tiz opened the door of which Fury informed us that the green gas was Chlorine gas and some other gases she does not recognize. She stopped it from leaking out and moved our air bubble into the room in while not allowing the water to infiltrate the rest of the ship. And the door was closed.
This room was a launch bay with some crates and a 3 person landing craft in an alien configuration.
The next room was a rack of blue crystal spears. Tiz checked determining they are some kind of explosive but very foreign technology and then IOTA said they was some sort of crude AI missile. There are 120 of them in racks in this room.
The next room was a corridor with a few doors. The team went to where they thought the power source was.
Entered a room with a glowing cylinder with a force field around it with 4 crystals pointing towards the glowing cylinder and there appeared to be two missing crystals (positions for them but no crystals).
Kincaid tried to reach the power source after coming to the conclusion that it was a white hole (Yes, this led to a good 10 minutes of comments). Lighting arched to him and appeared to supercharge him to 400%. The blast doors around the cylinder were closed by Kincaid . The lighting stopped but this left him very weak with no powers and more human, vulnerable. He was lifted up to the 4 crystals as they were 15 feet off the floor and took them. He then ingested the crystals. And then ingested his 2 power rings. (Lots of comments of various things)…
There then came into the 2 doors, 3 Bots in each door. Smokey teleported them to the bottom of the Mariana Trench the other 2 miles down to give us time to work through things.
Tiz's auqobot was badly damaged engaging the submarine and its combatants. She attempted repairs and it asked for a resupply bot as it was almost out of ammunition.
Smokey decided to send it one of the 120 blue crystal missiles. No time like the present to test an alien missile. The aquabot shot it but it did not blow up. Hmm… we obviously missed something in those steps for use… Damn poorly written instruction manual…
Aquabot was destroyed and they were resuming their approach to the coordinates.
Smokey reluctantly decided to try and move the entire ship again to the dark side of the moon temporarily until Fury can finish the landing bay in the new moon base beta . Then Smokey will move it back to the new moon base beta. This time Smokey was able to move the ship to the dark side of the moon without any issue.
Then Smokey took the team back to the moon base Alpha from the ocean.
Kincaid is slowly getting his powers back or his new/altered powers…
And the adventure continues to take over Columbia and then world in our continuing adventures of 'How NOT to be Heros' ……
