It was a cold and damp night on the swamp Planet XL3-791, known only for one thing and one thing only Blackwater Maximum Security prison. The worst criminals throughout the NEE would always end up being shipped off to this shithole, a perfect place for the war criminals and serial killers to rot for the rest of their life. Escape from this place was futile, even if an inmate got hold of one of the small prison transport ships, the nearest planet was a good week out without a Grav Jump. The only contact the prison made with the outside world was the NEE station positioned nearby that would serve as a hub for visitors.

Sitting in one of the rows of a small transport ship, Elaine di Marquis stares out the window as they pass over the dense swamps that covered most of this planet before glancing to take a look at the other two passengers aboard with her. They both were preachers, dressed in simple robes with rosaries and bibles clenched between their hands. "How admirable." She thought to herself, these men were attempting to preach the word of god to a bunch of killers. Soon though her mind drifts back to the problem at hand... getting Shaun Hollifield out of Blackwater. She had to do this as secretly as possible which is why she was currently dressed in civilian clothing with a wig and colored contacts, if her cover was blown Elaine could lose everything she'd worked for these last ten years and even worse her baby brother...

Landing in the docking bay of the prison, Elaine and the other visitors are escorted to a small reception hall after the guards did a quick search of their belongings . Walking up to the main desk, a man preoccupied with the current MABall game who glances up at her for a moment before sliding a data pad to her and refocuses on the game. Quickly filling out the information, the princess signs it with one of her false identities she had created for going incognito before sliding it back to the man who glances at it for a moment.

"Hollifield eh....." The guard says whistling slightly. "What would a pretty little thing like yourself want with a scumbag like him?" Elaine could see the man was checking her out and had to resist the urge to punch the pig.

"None of your damn business" Elaine said closing her eyes before she turned around to go sit on the nearby bench, waiting to be escorted to a private room where Shaun would be waiting for her.

"So, how much are we getting paid to do this again?" Jack asks, sitting nervously on the bridge of the Whale, watching the scanners, making sure nothing on the ship is running that doesn't absolutely need to be doing so.

"Enough..." Vincent says over the com system, sitting within Gravemaker in the holding bay, "Besides, they're old friends who can use our help. Maybe they can even give us a hand with our shit..." As he says this, Vince reaches up and gently runs a hand across the long, thin red scar going across his neck.

Jack curses quietly then says nothing else.

Neither one of them wanted to be in this kind of situation, hiding on the moon of Planet XL3-791 with stolen stealth technology being their only line of defense against the scanning and security systems of the planet below them. If it had been for anyone else, Vincent would have declined the job, even though the money offered would be a sight for sore eyes after the last couple of years. But it had been Elaine, the older sister of Lance, asking for their help to get Shaun out of jail.

Things had ended badly for the crew the last time they were together, due to the loss of one of their members. There had been a fight, and the crew had split up, seemingly going to the edges of the universe to avoid one another. None of them had spoken to one another since then, but now it seemed fate was bringing them back together against their will, like a black hole sucking in a ship that got too close.

"If this goes bad, we're all fucked, you know that right?" Jack asks.

"I know." Vincent says calmly.

"We'll be sent down planet side, put in that prison where the guards'll just sit back and watch as we're torn apart." Jack says.

"I know," Vincent says again.

"How the hell can you be so calm?" Jack half asks, half yells at his captain, feeling uneasy as he brings up a video feed from within the cockpit of Gravemaker and sees just how calm the man within really is.

"Everything's going to work out," Vincent says, staring straight ahead, towards the bay doors of the Whale, "I can feel it. Besides, you know there's always a brawl whenever Shaun is involved. This time, however, I'm the one with the bigger guns..."

I was true. Vincent had outfitted Gravemaker with his new Buster Armor system. It tripled the armor strength of his mech and allowed for more weapons to be added, which could easily be shrugged off if the need arose. It was outfitted with a grenade launcher, beam cannon, missile launcher, rail guns, plus anything he could carry with him. As soon as the signal was given, he'd be ready to go.

Today had been an odd day for Shaun Hollifield. It started off normal enough, with Shaun waking up to see his cellmate touching himself to a picture of a pin-up model a guy a few blocks down from them had smuggled in. The cellmate, whom Shaun had named Percy, always tried to get in a quick wank before the guards patrolled for contraband checks, always hiding it in a hollowed out section of his bed. The guards would have to dismantle the entire frame to find it... Shaun even helped Percy make it out of boredom. After the morning contraband check, Shaun resumed his hobby of sitting in front of the bars and studying everyone he could in this shit hole, mainly the guards. In fist fights, he could take on any of the fucks in here in a one on one fight, but that's rarely how fights went down in here... it was usually seven or eight people beating the shit out of you for as long as they could until guards came in with their stun batons and started beating everyone to make them calm down... regardless of whether or not you were the victim of the previous beating. Shaun had few friends in this place, having refused to join any of the inmate gangs, and so was without any protection from anyone else... and so far, he was fine... but he'd heard through Percy that Antonio was tired of Shaun's shit, and aimed to put him in the infirmary this afternoon during mess-hall. Antonio was an idiot in every sense of the word, but he also led the Aryan Brotherhood in Blackwater, and could really fuck Shaun up if he didn't find a way to either appease Antonio or give him reason to pick on someone else.

If Shaun still had SDM, Antonio would be dead already...

SDM was probably stripped for parts the day he was convicted...

Shaun's expression changed from bored contemplation to depressed, thinking back at how he wound up in here in the first place... a lot of it was fuzzy because he was drunk out of his mind, but he could remember screaming and destruction... Shaun knew he belonged in here for what he did, but there was too much to do on the outside... He wanted to find Izzie's family and tell them what happened to her... wanted to let Lance and Vince lay into him over what he'd done... then he'd come back and rot.

Shaun snapped out of his thoughts when a guard opened the door to his cell and kicked Shaun out of the way, slamming him and Percy to the ground so they could begin the contraband check. Shaun felt that his lip had been busted open a bit from the kick, but it was a minor wound, even compared to the ones he'd gotten just in prison. Though really, he doubted anyone else here had survived the epicenter of a self destruction mech before.

The guards found nothing, as was usually the case... they'd found Shaun's stash of junk food once, but that was the only thing of Shaun's they'd ever found. Percy had porn stashes all throughout the cell and never got caught. He was slightly crazy, but was amazing at hiding things... it's why Shaun only got caught once with junk food...

"All right... Cell's clean..." The guards said, sounding almost disappointed, but un-cuffed the inmates and closed the cell doors back, Shaun resuming his meditations.

-=-

A few hours passed, and it was time for breakfast, one of the few times the inmates were allowed out of their cells. Shaun was usually back of the line, wanting to watch everyone else while he was close to the guards. Antonio and the Brotherhood were giving him their usual menacing glares, which left Shaun feeling unimpressed... might have worked were the biggest guy in their little club not cock-eyed... one eye was on him and the food.... Shaun nearly laughed, but that would only begin the fight sooner than Shaun wanted it too.

When Shaun was finally up at the front of the line, he grinned at the lunch workers, who sneered back, plopping down a slab of over-cooked meat of indeterminable origin with what he assumed were mashed potatoes and a cup of lemonade, which Shaun knew was at least 50% piss at least.

"You know, you can cut out the subtlety and just shit on the tray" Shaun said, causing one of the lunch workers to take a swing at him, with a guard quickly running over to beat him with a stun baton. Shaun chuckled as he left to go sit down, dumping his tray in the trash before walking over to one of the tables a gang had already eaten at and left. He sat down and looked over at Antonio, who was still glaring at him, the cock-eyed bastard behind him looking at Shaun and the door. Shaun couldn't resist laughing this time, and it was all the antagonizing Antonio and his boys needed, all of them running towards him, some brandishing their lunch trays as weapons, others just screaming and using their fists. Shaun ran at them as well, tackling the cock-eyed guy and slammed him down onto Antonio, while the rest of the gang (roughly 7 people) beat Shaun's back with everything they had, Shaun simply biding his time until the guards came and got them off of him.

Shaun was cuffed and escorted to his cell, The guards being used enough to fights in this place that it wasn't enough to get you sent to solitary... hell, inmates killing each other just meant less of them to watch. There was legislation in the pipes about making Blackwater a free range prison, where prisoners were dropped off and forgotten, leaving them to their own devices away from the rest of the galaxy.

Shaun smiled, having managed to protect his face during the beating by biting Antonio to hold it in place... and most of the bones in his back were robotic, and it'd take more than the lunch trays here to do them any harm. Shaun used the sink water in the cell to clean himself up, that being the closest he could get to a shower until after lunch. He took out some soap Percy had helped him hide, and washed his hair, taking advantage of the fact that most of the guards were in the mess-hall. Afterwards, Shaun again looked presentable, and no sooner had he put the soap away, a guard tapped on the bars to his cell.

"Ya got a conjugal Hollifield... Lucky bastard" The guard said, opening the door to the cell and cuffing Shaun, escorting him to the visitor's building where the conjugal rooms were located. Shaun was un-cuffed and thrown into the room, and sat there waiting for whatever lady had decided to fuck a prisoner that day. It happened every once in a while... Nymphos just wanting a quick fix... First time Shaun had been picked though. He decided to take off his shirt and flex, give the girl a show so that maybe she'd become a regular visitor... and was surprised to see that the chick in question was pretty damn hot when she walked in the door. Shaun gave a sly grin as he looked her over, and felt a strange pang of nostalgia as she turned to shut the door...

He'd seen that ass before...

"So... wanted to fuck a prisoner? Or you got some ulterior motive for coming in here?" He said, having stopped flexing and now looked into her eyes... certain he'd seen her or at least a picture of her before...

Walking into the room to find the man she had been looking for flexing like a damn idiot in a pathetic attempt to woo her, Elaine simply turned around closed the room's door to give the two some privacy . When she turned back to face Shaun he had stopped and was now staring at her.

"So... wanted to fuck a prisoner? Or you got some ulterior motive for coming in here?"

"Ex-Major Hollifield you sure catch on quick." She said smirking slightly as she walked towards him, stopping a few feet short of the shirtless man . "Especially for someone who is considered dead in our databases, but that's not important for now. What is however... is that you are going to help me, whether you like it or not." She continued, her eyes staring back at him while her face was deadly serious.

"I KNEW IT!" Shaun nearly yelled, giggling in excitement about how he'd been right. He started to yell again but stopped himself, but was obviously quite excited.

"Elaine di Marquis, right? Saw a picture of you once that Lance carried around with him... you still have a nice ass by the way" He said with a chuckle, hands in the air to show he didn't plan on getting touchy feely.

"Lance socked me one for checking you out already, not gonna do it again without your permission" He said, looking in her eyes, then what she asked sunk in.

"Lance run away again? Kid might be smart, but he's an idiot when it comes to laying low... You've caught him before, why do you need me? Trying to break your old record?"

Elaine stared back at Shaun as he finished talking as a small silence filled the room for a moment before she grabbed the back of Shaun's head and slammed it against the table she was previously leaning on before giving a swift kick to the downed man's ribs . She did however not put a lot of force into the attack but hopefully it would teach Shaun to keep his dirty thoughts to himself. Elaine takes a few steps back as Shaun lets out some small grunts of pain before he began to chuckle slighty.
"You got a funny way of asking for help." He said with a small grin. Walking back over to him Elaine crouches down and grabs the back of his head .

"I'm not asking Hollifield... I'm telling you to help." She said angrily as she reached into her purse and brought out her data pad and began cycling through some programs. I've been keeping track of Lance for these past two years ever since the lockdown at Wuhai. He would send me an encrypted message every day but those stopped a few days ago at least that was until I found this yesterday." She said brining the device to Shaun's face and hitting the play button. In the video footage Lance was clearly seen curled up in a small cell with several large bruises and gashes across his body. "It was sent to me by one of moles I have aboard my brother Alexander's ship."

Standing up, Elaine begins to pace the room while she lets Shaun get back on his feet.

"Alex always wanted to be the next emperor, even back when we were all kids. He's also willing to do anything to get it... including killing Lance and myself to better his chances. So I need you Shaun... you and Margrave are the only two who can save him right now." Elaine said with her back turned to him, hiding her slightly watering eyes while she grabbed onto the pendant Lancelot had given her. The footage was always too much for her to watch, seeing her little brother in such pain and not being able to do anything to stop it.
Shaun didn't stand up after looking at the data pad, shocked at the images he saw... though Elaine's mention of Margrave made his eyes widen, and realize something.

"Vince is enough to bust Lance off of a ship. You don't need me. I deserve to be in here... killed innocent people because I was too full of my own shit to put down the damn bottle... I'd rather wait out my stay here and serve my debt..." Shaun said, looking down at the data pad still, seeing Lance curled up and bloodied in a cell... he imagined that's what some of those folks looked like that night... He wasn't going to needlessly piss on their graves... not when Elaine already had command of military troops and Vince working with her...

"Pathetic...." Elaine said quietly as she wiped a small tear from here eyes. "You are so goddamn pathetic! You know Lance used to talk about you in his messages. He said that you and Vince were the closet things to brothers he had ever had, yet your won't help!" She yelled as she grew more and more frustrated. A few moments later she continued again.

"Did it ever occur to you exactly why I'm here? If I tried using any of my forces to stop Alexander he would kill Lance instantly! I need someone who isn't in the NEE to get Lance out without being detected and who I trust won't turn him in for the money. You've served in the special ops so I know you can do it while Margrave runs a distraction for you and If you help I'll make sure that you are well rewarded. Otherwise I will personally make sure that the rest of your stay at Blackwater is as miserable as possible. So what's it going to be Hollifield?"

"DON'T PRETEND LIKE YOU KNOW WHAT IT'S LIKE TO KILL INNOCENT PEOPLE!" Shaun snapped, then quickly looked away, ashamed he'd rose his voice to Elaine when she was there asking for his help.

A knock on the door signaled that they had two more minutes, and Shaun sighed in defeat.

"I'll help you on the condition that I can turn myself back in once this is over. I do deserve to be in here, and I'm not going to piss on the graves of those people by busting out of here" Shaun said, then a slight grin took to his face as he stood for a moment, then sat down on the dirty cot provided for the love making... there was a reason Shaun had been standing until now...

"But it's going to look really suspicious if you leave like that when you came in here for a conjugal..." Shaun said, looking Elaine in the eyes.

"Hmm you're right." Elaine said, sighing as she grabbed the data pad and slipped it back into her purse.

Walking over to Shaun she bends down and stares at him.


"This means nothing got it? So keep your lips shut Hollifield or else.." She said in a serious tone as she grabbed his head and then proceeded to give Shaun a large kiss on the lips, ensuring that her lipstick gets all over his mouth region while she ran her hands through his hair ruffling it to appear as if he had been rolling around in the filthy cot. Breaking off after a mintue or so , she turns around and opens up her jacket and begins to dig into her bra and quickly pulls out a small device in a few seconds and tosses it to Shaun.

"Vincent will use that to find you so keep it somewhere safe, where exactly I don't want to know." Elaine said as she began to make her way to the door, ruffling her own hair to get the post-coatis look going.

" Also for the love of god, have some self control." She said glancing back to Shaun who had a small tent in his pants before knocking on the door which promptly opened. Soon Elaine found herself back on the transport ship headed back to the NEE station where her small personal ship awaited takeoff. Taking out her data pad she sends a codeword to Vince to inform him to start the operation.

For what seemed like hours, Vincent sat silently in the cockpit of Gravemaker, although for the time he was calling his mech GraveBuster, due to the fact that he was wearing the new suit of Buster Armor that he had made for it. The armor was thicker, meaning the mech was a bit slower, but could take much more damage from all types of weapons. It was also outfitted with heavy weapons that Gravemaker would normally never use. This armor was built for such operations as the one Vincent was about to undertake.

And as he was thinking these thoughts, while running his hands over the motion controls for all his piloting equipment, he got the signal. A red flash in the corner of his field of vision let him know it was time.

"Show time..." he says to Jack, telling the pilot to open the bay doors.

Slowly Vincent walks GraveBuster out of the Whale and onto the dusty surface of the moon. Looking up at the target he shifts the weight of the mech as he crouches down and ignites the thrusters. After a moment of calculation, which was just a fancy way of saying he was going to try his best not to crash land on the building in question, he leaps, averts full power to the thrusters, and sets off like a rocket towards the swampy planet.

After just a few seconds of zero gravity he begins to feel the pull of planetary orbit and does a slow flip, making it so that the feet of the mech will land first.

Sticking the arms out he controls his decent and direction, causing the mech to land in the central courtyard of the prison. Thankfully there was no one there at the time, however the force of the impact caused the surrounding walls to collapse.

Looking around, scanning the structure for heat signatures, he launches a grenade at one of the walls least lit up, then charges towards it. Crashing into the building people flee from the randomly rampaging mech, but Vincent ignores this as much as possible as he hunts down the red blip on his radar marking Shaun.

"Alright Hollifield," Vincent says over the speakers when he finds him, "Get your bullet riddled ass in the mech!"

Figuring that Shaun wouldn't recognize the mech in the new armor, to further mess with his old friend Vincent uses a voice modulator to change his own voice, making it sound deeper, more robotic, a little like Darth Vader.

Open the chest he waits for Shaun to get in, the looks at him for a moment as the cockpit closes before punching him in the back of the head, knocking him down. Before his old friend can protest he hist the thrusters and takes off for a clearing he and Jack had designated before as the pick up zone. Once he reaches it the Whale seems to appear out of thin air, and once the mech is inside it takes off. Once out of rage of the planet Jack puts them into hyperspace to meet up with Elaine.

Shaun couldn't help but notice the cleavage of the princess of the galaxy as she dug into her bra to pull out a transmitter, a sight he was sure few could claim to have seen... he made a mental note to the list of cool shit he'd gotten to do, and was at the top, right above shoving a mech head into the engine of a space-ship, causing it to explode.

She also happened to notice the erection he was sporting due to the vision of the flesh valley, and demanded he had self control.

"It's nature babe" He said, then she left, and Shaun took the moment to slip down his pants and flex his right leg, placing the transmitter where he once stored ammo. He was then cuffed and led back out of the room, and somewhere between the visitor building and going back to the penitentiary building, a most curious thing happened... A mech fell out of the sky and started smashing everything...

"Oh fuck" Shaun said as he watched in awe, the guard in charge of guarding him having abandoned Shaun to the rampaging metal giant, as no stun baton could prevent that thing from rioting. The mech then looked at Shaun and spoke to him, Shaun fairly certain that Elaine was setting this up, but you could never be too sure... a lot of people probably wanted him dead... people he probably couldn't even remember.

"Beats prison though" He mused as he ran to the mech, figuring at the very least it could kill him and appease the people's families... and as soon as he made it into the cockpit and saw the pilot, he was knocked to the ground and held there by the mech taking off again, realizing this was Vince in a new version of Gravemaker, if not a new beast altogether. He resisted the urge to protest the punch, but knew he deserved it, and this was possibly the first of many, so he sat quietly until the two were exiting the mech and were on the whale, Shaun very impressed at the prison break.

"Elaine give you a way to contact her? I need to make a few requests if this is going to work without anyone dying" Shaun said at last, feeling saying hi would just be awkward at this point, and decided to keep to the business at hand.

"Might need to do some adjustments to my limbs for this..." He said, not really looking anyone in the eye, hoping he wasn't coming across as being an ass... just hard to pick up where they left off after all that happened...

"AK is in the back, put him in storage after you left," Vincent says, walking over to a monitor, hitting a few switches, causing a machine to come to life, "You'll have to ask Jack about contacting Elaine, she spoke to him, not me. I was...busy...when the call came in. I only heard the ass end of the deal."

Large mechanical arms, like those of a spider, surround GraveBuster and begin to carefully remove the dark green Buster Armor. As this happens the computers running it all run a full diagnostic over the mech and the pieces of armor, calculating the damage sustained, ammo used, and drain on the battery pack.

"Head over to the...well, what used to be the med bay," Vincent says, walking over to a fridge, "Haven't had a medic on this ship since way back when."

Since the crew had broken up, they had more or less turned the once med bay back into a storage area. The table and supplies were still accessible, but there were alot of parts and boxes in there as well. Lance would have a fit if he were to see the state of things.

Vincent grabs a couple of beers before heading over to the med bay/storage area, following Shaun inside.

Twelve hours later, Elaine's personal transport ship was awaiting the whale at the designated rendezvous point in deep space. Jack, the man who she had contacted to get their help in the first place had sent her a message with a small list of supplies that Shaun needed for the operation. Luckily most of the items were easy enough to procure since she was a Commander in the NEE though she had to order several boxes of each to not look suspicious.

After the small mercenary ship had landed and air had been restored to the bay, Elaine along with her four personal guard enter the hanger.

"Welcome aboard." Elaine says simply as she watches the three men exit the junk heap that was their ship. "However..." She said turning to look at Shaun. "We can't have a convicted felon running amok on my ship." Nodding to one of her guards he approaches Shaun with a looking odd devicein his hands. Quickly the guard wraps it around Hollifield's neck as the sound of a large click fills the room.

"It's simply a security measure. Any funny business and you'll get 2000 volts running through your body. " Elaine said as the guard took his place back behind her. "Now please follow me, I'll take you to your rooms.. " She said as she turned around, leading Vince and Jack to some nice guests rooms. The two were free to roam the ship during the three days it would take it take to get to Alexander's fleet, though the briefing was in a few hours. Meanwhile Shaun was placed in a holding cell for the time being with some of the equipment he had asked for waiting there for him (minus the weapons of course).

The augmentations were a success, prompting Shaun to be in a bit of better spirits aboard the Whale, talking to Vince a bit over the comm units as he rummaged through his room to find some of the things he'd left behind, such as all of his paints. Having finally augmented his left and right hands, the skin had to be removed for them to be able to function as intended, though Shaun had an idea around this now.

Paint them.

Which is precisely what he did during the several hours it took to arrive at the rendezvous point, stopping only to tell Jack the equipment he'd need from Elaine to rescue Lance. ((list at the bottom, later to be moved to the OOC when I get around to making it))

When they did arrive, and Shaun was welcomed with a shock collar, Shaun couldn't help but have to good mood sucked out of him. He wasn't here because anyone liked him, he wasn't here because he was the best... just the best option given very limiting circumstances... and also, the collar was very cold.

As Vince and Jack were lead to their accommodations, Shaun was led to the brig, where a nice cell was waiting for him, along with the supplies requested, minus the weapons... probably a good idea on their part. Shaun shrugged and got to work suiting up, checking the tech equipment and then began whining about needing to talk to Elaine about something to the royal guard standing outside of his cell... his way of making himself feel at home.

List:

1 standard issue special ops uniform, no insignia

1 set of multiple frequency goggles

1 combat knife

1 tranquilizer pistol (silenced)

1 cyanide pill

1 assault rifle (silenced)

1 glove, 1 fingerless glove

1 encrypted comm unit

1 chloroform vial, with cloth stuffed inside, corner hooked into lid so that removal of lid removes portion of cloth.

Despite what had happened in the past, it felt good to have Shaun around again. The Whale had been so quiet without the crew. Vincent had still not forgiven him, he had understood when both Shaun and Lance had left after Izzie's death, and he had tried to keep himself from checking up on them, but it hadn't worked. Partly because of his nature, and partly because of what had happened over the years, Vincent had managed to keep tabs on the others, until recently anyway.

After he had learned about what Shaun had did he cut ties. Jack became the go between man if ever one was needed. This whole thing made him feel like he was stuck somewhere between a dream and a nightmare. The crew was getting back together, but it was not under ideal circumstances.

When Shaun had been modified to his liking Vincent headed off to his room. He had taken up playing solitaire when he had the time, and so that's what he did until they were brought into the ship Elaine had waiting on them. It was huge, and the Whale fit easily inside, several Whales could fit inside. They were all separated, more or less. Shaun was taken away while Jack and Vincent were taken off to their private rooms. They were nice, he had to admit, but he would rather have stayed on his own ship, with his own things.

Walking down the various hall that lead to the main bridge, Elaine held a datapad in her hand looking over the schematics of Alexander's flagship. The intel the mole had sent her placed Lance somewhere down near the main engines, if this was true Hollifield would have to make his way from the back of the ship to the front undetected, while Vince would have to fly through a armada to pick the two up for . Lost in her thoughts, she walks through the automatic door to into the bridge as the crew inside stops their work for a moment to salute Elaine. Giving them a salute back, Elaine sits down in the commanders chair and leans forward slightly and glances around the bridge.

"Status report?"

"No problems detected ma'am , we should rendezvous with the Titan in approximately 45 hours."

"Engines prepped for Grav Jump ma'am." Another voice called out.

"Very well, begin the jump."

Soon the ship is speeding towards their destination as the crew go about their assigned tasks while Elaine begins to fill out the official paper work to dock at the Titan for a "refuelling".

"Ma'am I'm getting a message from *Insert Shaun's codename*'s guards. They say he is insistent to talk with you." One of the communication officers says.

Sighing slightly, Elaine gets out of her seat and begins to walk towards the door.

"Tell them I'll be there shortly."

"Ma'am!"

A few minutes later, Elaine had finally reached Shaun's holding cell where her two royal guards gave a salute at their nearby station.

"I would appreciate it if you didn't harass my crew for meetings Hollifield." Elaine said calmly staring straight into his eyes. "Now what did you want?"

"Hey now, asking me to risk my life, then giving me a shock collar and then locking me up in a brig and I'm not allowed to whine a bit? Cold hearted. Anyway, now that I have you here, I wanted to make another request... didn't want to send it over the comms in case they were bugged... We might need a hacker for this job. Sneaking onto a Pirate ship to rescue hostages is a lot different from sneaking onto a NEE vessel, especially one owned by one of the royal family... just sneaking around won't get me past all the sensors and shit... I recommend hiring someone from Nova. Plenty of hackers there surf the NEE servers for fun and never get caught" Shaun said, smirking a bit as he spoke, but a serious look washed over his face after a moment.

"Why would Alexander want to hold Lance like this? It a political move? Or is their some hidden war going on in the Marquis family?"

"It's a war for succession, Hollifield." Elaine said simply. "Lance to Alexander is a threat."

"Then why'd he take him alive?"

"So he can draw Lance's suffering out. Alexander has always had that tendancy, he loves seeing people squirm and beg for death."

"For days on end? With as banged up as Lance was in that photo, I think Alexander's keeping him alive... for what I don't know... You okay?"

"I'm fine.." Elaine said as she quickly turned away from Shaun to hide her eyes which were beginning to water. She had to remain professional and not lose her cool for the sake of the mission.

"And you don't know just how sadistic my half-brother is... he'll keep Lance on the verge of death for as long as he can or until he thinks someone has caught on." She said quietly. "Which is why if we fail, Lance is as good as dead."

"Good thing I'm damn good at situations like this. Get your hands on a hacker and It'll almost guarantee success for the mission... might want a med team waiting on the Whale as well... and to tell Vince to clean the med bay out..." Shaun said, smirking a bit.

"And the whole "turning away so I can't see you cry" thing didn't work... I've seen it before" he said, now winking a bit.

"Where the hell did you put all this shit before?" Jack asks Vincent as the two of them work together trying to sort out the med bay, "Seriously, why do we even have all of this stuff?"

"That's a very good question," Vincent asks, picking up a cardboard box, cursing as the flaps rip off in his hands and the content scatters, "Better question, why the fuck do we still have cardboard?"

The room was more or less filled with unused parts that they didn't really even need, but that years of having to repair several mechs in one go had taught Vincent to keep on hand. AK was in perfect shape, aside from a few layers of dust and some cobwebs, and hadn't been touched since it had been moved into the back, but still there were dozens of spare parts and boxes of ammo for it. And, unfortunately, he still had all the spare parts and ammo for Izzie's mech. There was no need of such things anymore, there never wound be now, and so with the help of some of the guards they started to clear them out.

After a few hours the med bay was back to how it had been before the band broke up and Rocky had died of a drug overdose. In fact, it was better now, because as the med team Elaine had prepared started looking things over, they decided it sucked, and so brought in a few things.

There were new instruments, new machines and equipment, and the entire room was now being sanitized by nano machines designed to kill any germs on the surfaces of the interior of the room and anything else inside. They also replaced the old light bulbs with energy efficient ones made from recycled space glass. It was almost as if someone had taken a room from one of the top medical facilities in the NEE and shoved it down the throat of the Whale, and it had gotten lodged in his gut.
