=^= Ric bring one of your squads off our flanks a little and be prepared to head to the homeworld in case they start some thing there. We can give air support to an away team.=^= Came the Captain voice over the CIC coms.

Parker CO

=^=Roger, tower, Red Squad is ready to go planetside,=^= Ric replied to the CO.

Switching channels back to the squads, he sent the order. =^=Red Leader, prepare for atmospheric patrol. We’re sending in ground troops and may need to give them air support. Stand by.=^=

=^=Blue Squad, you are clear for launch. Take up flank position vacated by Sehlat and Red Squad=^=
=^=Roger, CAG. Blue Squad is go,=^=, came the reply from “Omaha”, the Blue Squad Leader.

Ricochet (CAG)

=^=Roger, CAG. Red Squad heading for atmosphere.=^= Xandra’s voice was sure and confident as she turned her nose towards the planet and moved into hovering position to await the coordinates where the ground troops would land so they could clear the area for them.

A deep breath inhaled and exhaled thru her lungs as memory control and the familiar feel of her ship loosed the last of the tension from her. She was dark borne once more and it felt good. Not just sim training, not just following Ric as she did maneuvers to be sure she could still fly. This was a true mission. The tension completely melted away and she was, finally, her usual self. She didn’t realize the comms were still open as a small laugh of relief bubbled up and filled the empty space under her canopy.

Red Ldr

A moment later, Ric opened the channel once again. =^=Apex, standby. Depending on what happens planetside, I want to be ready to give Red squad some extra support. That includes you and I, copy?=^=

Ricochet (CAG)

=/\=Copy that Ric.=/\= Ael replied. As much he liked flying, not being needed yet meant things had yet to go sideways. Always welcome news.

-Lt Ael Khev, Apex

Xandra didn’t like the idea of Ric joining them, but she wasn’t one to keep him from the black anymore than he would do to her. She just hoped it was all he saw today. Not being able to resist, she tapped the private channel to the CIC, =^=Sure you wanna do that, old man? I mean, it’s been a while since you were in the seat.=^= She had been joking with him as he had put her thru the simulator paces after CNS cleared her for duty. He had been doing other things and not joined her and she had constantly teased him about getting rusty. She didn’t see a reason not to make him smile with the small jibe now.


On the private channel, Ric replied, +^=I’ve spent so much time in that seat, it’s permanently molded to the shape of my butt, lady. Besides, it just like riding a bike, right?=^=

At that moment a call came in from the bridge. The XO was relaying the Captain’s orders to recall all squads and away teams.

Returning to the primary channel, Ric gave the order to return. =^=All squads, this is CIC. Return to mother ASAP. The Skipper has recalled all away teams. Return and refuel, but remain on standby. We’re going Breen hunting.=^=

Ricochet (CAG)

=/\=Roger that CAG.=/\= Ael turned around and headed back.

-Lt Ael Khev, Apex

Xandra frowned. “Go to space… no, wait… watch the grounders… no… wait… come back to the Oly.” At times like this she wished she was CAG or someone on the bridge so she could have a better understanding of the belayed and changed orders. As the others chimed in, she did as well.

=^=Roger, turning back.=^= She let her scanners scan the surface to be sure there wasn’t anything rising up to meet them and then turned her squad back to the ship.

Once aboard, she popped the canopy and hopped up to sit on the edge as her crew saw to the turn around. She waited till she saw Rick and nodded for him to come over. Hopefully he would have some answers.

Ric made his way from CIC to the hangar floor. Seeing Xandra waiting for some explanation, he motioned for Apex and the other squad leaders to join them.

“It appears the Breen and Tholians didn’t want to mess with us. They were having some issues and the Santiago got caught in the crossfire. The way I understand it, there was no attack on the Federation ship. I tend to believe that, seeing as how they took off when we showed up. There was no incursion on the planet either. The problem is that they brought their conflict into Federation space. The Olinski is giving chase now to see if we can figure out what the hell is going on.”

He eyed the group of squad leaders. “Keep your flights at condition yellow. I don’t know what’s going to happen when we catch up to them, but I want y’all to be ready to fly at a moment’s notice. Any questions?”
