RESEARCH FACILITY--PLATFORM

Don't get distracted by the ocean, Quiri, even though you do hear it all around you. Focus on the mission. The asari tried not to close her eyes and breathe in the salty air. It reminded her of home. Not Omega, certainly, with its perpetual stench of spaceship exhaust and unwashed organic beings. Before she ventured there--or even met Diana Velian--she'd lived on Thessia, the asari homeworld. Her father hadn't liked it there very much. "Too soft," he'd grunted. "Far too womanly." However, since her mother would rather have died than set foot on Tuchanka, the krogan Quirinius had borne it all like a good sport. It's a pity he went off to crack skulls before I was 30.

The breadwinner of her family had hired himself out to the Blood Pack for a "strategically important mission" in the Terminus Systems--details classified, of course. The asari felt her fists clench. Mercenary bastards! The only things that are "strategically important" to them are the locations of their next targets to assassinate! Naturally, her father had met his fate in the middle of a tremendous firefight. All that her mother could say after that was, "He died like a krogan." Indeed he had, but Quiri didn't care about that. She wanted her "Otsa" back. That was the slang word for "Father" that she'd made up even before she could walk, and it had always warmed his heart.

A smile spread across her lips, before reality jarred her again. Not now. Move out! She focused her attention on the fringed back of Qui'in Tuhrop's head. If we run into trouble, I'll slow down time for you, Captain. She was glad his command was strong.

"Then I want you perform an espionage around the base. Find any possible connection to Cerberus. If there is, whether they have been notified of our arival should be relayed to us - give us a little heads-up warning. Understand?"

"Understood Human:Tom," Rogue replied activating its camo. It would complete this task, and made sure to update Tom as instructed.

Zack let out a heavy sigh. On his top three most hated list it went Vorcha, then Volus, and finally Humans. He was indeed a human who hated his own race. It was mainly because of the almighty Alliance. He absolutely hated the Alliance, for just about everything they did. Now he was stuck on a human colony, and they were following one of them. He looked over at Quirinius and smirked.

"Well this will be fun, by the way I'm Zack" he said to her.

Chiron on the other hand let out a sigh of relief. It was nice to get off the ship, and the place looked nice...much nicer than Omega. He followed the others, glancing around as he walked.

Tom ran out from the ramp exiting the ship, so as to join the others. He was breathing heavily, like he was in a rush... which he was. He also could not help but admire the view of the ocean and the colony.

Tom glanced apoligetically at Captain Tuhrop. "Sorry I'm late. I had to prep the ship's security firewalls before shore-leave."

He assumed Rogue, the Geth Infiltrator, would not use the elevator. Even with camoflage on, it be easy to spot the outline of the invisible synthetic up close and personal. Tom speculated either a ventilation shaft, or even the elevator shaft itself. Either way, what was important was that Rogue was able to infiltrate the research facility undetected.

Tom joined the others in the elevator. The mechanical doors slid shut, and Tom could feel the downward motion of the elevator moving down. Through the windows, they could get a good view of underwater world, with many coral reefs scattered and exotic fish swimming around.

"This station does not intefere with marine biology?" Tuhrop enquired.

"Unlikely." The representative claimed. "This facility is designed to be environmentally friendly. Its run by Hydroelectricity, naturally of course, and we have kinetic barriers surrounding the tower that ensure no marine life gets intefered."

"What research do you do here exactly?"

"We study and experiment further usages with element zero, since most of it on this world is harvested from beneath the ocean floor. There are other divisions in this facility we study, like Marine Biology. Sirta Foundation is one of our biggest sponsors, as our study with marine biology goes towards medical advances."

RESEARCH FACILITY--ELEVATOR/MAIN HUB

Quirinius had seen easy, greasy smiles such as Zack's on the face of many a human--and that was exactly why she was on her guard. Still, the young asari decided to give the Vanguard the benefit of the doubt, at least for now. After all, if any representatives from a certain clandestine organization made a sudden appearance, she'd need someone to do the shooting and biotic-charging while she slowed time to a crawl to facilitate the battle...

"I always love a fight," she told Zack, "but on the chessboard. Mostly."

She hoped she'd said that last word coldly enough to make shivers run down the man's spine and let him know she was no one to be trifled with. My mother was the exotic dancer, not me, she thought with a rueful sniff. She expected far more of me, even in my Maiden years. It's a pity that I haven't made her completely proud--at least not yet...

"I always love a fight," she told Zack, "but on the chessboard. Mostly."

"Ayah, I always hated chess..." Tom added, awkward elevator music like from the citadel was playing in the background. "Everytime I go up against someone, its either a draw or a loss. I've always been a blackjack sort of person..."

Admitting his weakeness in chess was probably alot better than reminding Quiri of how she almost got herself killed by Eclyspe Mercenaries just from playing one game. Not to mention the fact that it probably was not the appropriate occasion with the Facility Representative in the elevator with them.

The elevator made a halt. The door slid open, and revealed a wide hallway; with a window running across the wall overlooking the underwater world below the ocean. People wearing lab tunics and security officer uniforms were seen everywhere.

"Impressive..." Captain Tuhrop was able to mutter.

"I always love a fight," she told Zack, "but on the chessboard. Mostly."

Zack chuckled as his first response. She had a bit of attitude to her, and she could use a gun. Sure chess wasn't his strong point, in fact he probably wouldn't know the difference between a rook and a pawn.

"A cutie and a fighter? It must be my lucky day," he replied.

Chiron nodded his head in approval as the elevator doors opened.

"Remarkable," the krogan said.

Rogue had silently followed the group until they reached the elevator. It watched the group get into elevator. It looked around, spotting a ventilation shaft. It looked around for any security officers and then quickly opened the shaft. It climbed inside and made sure to close the shaft again. Rogue began its journey through the ventilation shaft, moving as quickly but as quietly as it could.

RESEARCH FACILITY--INTERIOR

Quirinius cocked a wry eyebrow at Zack--painted indigo, and very arched.

"Fighter? Yes. Cutie? Hardly. My 'father', if you want to use the term, was a krogan. I've got his mouth, and I'm considered hideous by most other asari." Turning her head towards the interior of the research facility, she scanned the room for any suspicious signs--edgy personnel, oddly-placed documents, mysterious electronic consoles or gadgetry--and found none. Good, she thought, but that doesn't mean everything is on the up-and-up here. After all, why would the Captain investigate if he thinks it's a wild goose chase?

"You're being too hard on yourself darling, you look great," Zack replied.

She certainly was different from most asari he had seen...and been with. She must have the love of fighting from that krogan dad of hers. Then again asari were pretty deadly themselves. Both beautiful and excellent fighters, a deadly combination. Quarians weren't half bad either. Zack snapped back to reality, unsure of where he was trying to go with this. He looked around at the interior of the base.He had to admit, he was actually impressed...but he wouldn't show it.

"Hey Tom, do you think Ghost feels at home?" Zack asked looking at the ocean through the window.

Odd, Tom was one of the few humans he actually liked. Tom understood different cultures and respected them. Not to mention he was one hell of an engineer.

"Hey Tom, do you think Ghost feels at home?"

"Maybe you should ask him yourself?'' Tom replied to Zacks comment, looking out of the window of the underwater world.

"Have you made many developments with medical advances?' Tuhrop asked the representative.

"We are currently in the works of a new type of medigel, designed efficiently for soldiers on the battlefield. Unfortunatly, I cant spare much detail; its classified." she eyed Tuhrop. "But right now we are more interested in the data you have on Cerberus. How is it you acquired it?"

"Derelict Cerberus Vessel. We'll tell you all the details once we speak to your boss."

"He's not here at the moment, I'm afraid. He's at the colony making negotiations." The representative revealed. "I am his Personal Assistant... I apoligise, I did not formely introduce myself. I am Neesa, I organise the Head Facility Manager's calendar and appointments. If we just store it in his archive for now, we'll begin analysing once he returns."

They passed through the main lobby, which was populated with employees and receptionists. The modern architecture was remarkable visually. Pillars of marble stone could be spotted, which Tom intepreted as art deco.

Neesa, the receptionist, walked them towards one of the desks - where a tall skinny man was standing next to. He had slick black hair and a skull-like cheek boned face. He wore an all black tunic, defining his visual sense of pride. Something about him rubbed Tom off the wrong way.

"Executor Hawking, Head of the Research Facilities security." Neesa introduced. 'He will give you a guided tour, if you wish. He will also lead you to your quarters."

"Our... quarters?" Tuhrop enquired. The thin man eyed the Turian.

"I'm afraid this is part of our security protocol. You must remain here, in this facility, until the Head Facilities Manager returns from the Negotiations." Hawking spoke in a raspy voice. "Afterward, he will appoint to analysing "your data" and report to the systems alliance cyberwarfare devision. You cannot leave until all of the above is complete, and without my supervision."

RESEARCH FACILITY--INTERIOR

Something is wrong, wrong, wrong, wrong, wrong...

As Quirinius listened to Hawking's words, her scalp began to crawl as if a thousand tiny rachni hatchlings were exploring her sensitive blue tentacles. She gritted her teeth, trying to smile or at least appear civil and cooperative. Internally, however, the asari knew what was going on. Adrenaline was beginning to flood her system, preparing her to fight or flee from the facility.

I can't run away and let the Captain down. Not now. However, this man Hawking almost sounds like he's taking us as prisoners. Or hostages.

I hadn't been living on Omega for so long without learning a few things.


Instinctively, she clenched her hands into fists, within the confines of her sleek black leather gloves. I'm getting ready to unleash a biotic attack if I have to, she thought, more to herself than anyone else. Brace yourselves.

Chiron let out a loud sigh, but he wasn't upset. In the back of his mind he was expecting something like this, but he wished it wouldn't happen. He looked over at the rest of the crew, checking their reactions. He knew most of them wouldn't question this, but some might. He looked over at Zach to see the merc simply had his arms crossed. It was difficult to tell what he was thinking, hopefully he'd keep his mouth shut. He eyed Quirnius as well, seeing that she was new and he didn't know her that well yet.

"Well if that is the case, than might I ask about that new medigel? I am a doctor, perhaps I might be able to assist you" Chiron said, figuring if he was stuck than he might as well be doing something he liked.

Zack shook his head and chuckled. He wasn't in the least bit surprised that his kind would pull this crap. He was almost grateful they were getting quarters, as he expected they would be stuck in a cell or something. He looked over at Quirnius, and saw her clenched fists. Even he knew a fight wasn't the best solution...at least not until he knew they had the upperhand. He casually took a step closer to the asari.

"Easy Cutie," he whispered.

He looked over at Neesa, taking her to be the more friendly of the two.

"So...Neesa was it? How long do you think all of this will take?" he asked.

Tom eyed the Asari clenching her fists, as if ready to unleash a biotic kick to Hawking's face. Quite feisty, but perhaps could not blame her. Atleast to Tom, Hawking looked like quite a cold hearted character; the type he tries to avoid conflict with.

"Well if that is the case, than might I ask about that new medigel? I am a doctor, perhaps I might be able to assist you"

Hawking gave Chiron an evil eye. "A Krogan Doctor? Quite the rarity; you people are indeed a peculiar bunch." he crossed his arms, in an authoritive way. "But I should point out to you that non-personel are not authorised to such priviledged review and information. Krogan Especially."

"In my presence, Executor..." Tuhrop added sternly. "I will not tollerate such discrimination against any of my crew mates."

"My apoligies, Captain. But seeing as this is a Systems Alliance controlled facility, exclusively run by humans, you must understand we are abit weary with outsiders." Hawking replied, no hint of sympathy behind such cold words.

"So...Neesa was it? How long do you think all of this will take?"

Neesa turned to Zack. "I expect within the next few hours. A night by maximum."

She glanced at Tuhrop. "I truelly am sorry about the inconveniance, Captain. But because we are dealing with Cerberus Opperations, you must understand its well worth the wait."

"We'll cooperate, for now." Tuhrop resignated. "Take us to our quarters."

RESEARCH FACILITY--VISITOR QUARTERS

Once the crew of the Valkyrie had been escorted to their temporary quarters, Quiri shook her head and sighed. "I'm quite loath to tell you this, Captain," she said, "but this is highly unusual. I know I haven't had much experience on missions of this sort, but my instincts tell me that this 'security protocol' is not an ordinary one. Even on that cesspool of an asteroid where I lived before, people knew to be on their guard when they were taken to any unknown part of a building and left there." She faced Tuhrop squarely.

"It was all I could do not to plant a firm biotic drop-kick in that Hawking character's face. When should we start trying to escape, if something really is amiss?" She glanced around. "I don't want any 'security guards', meaning possible assassins, trying to surprise us."

Quiri began expressing her concern to the captain, once they arrived at their quarters. "When should we start trying to escape, if something really is amiss?" She glanced around. "I don't want any 'security guards', meaning possible assassins, trying to surprise us."

"We're gonna have to play along for now." Tuhrop replied. "I dont think they are holding us prisoner. They did not exactly say we are not allowed to leave our quarters, as long as we dont go exploring the labs and other restricted areas."

"Besides, we dont know they are working with Cerberus." Tom added. "Well, not yet anyway." he scratched his head. Tuhrop glanced curiously at Tom.

"What do you mean by that?" the Turian Captain asked cautiously.

Tom hesitated for a second, exchanging a grim look. "Promise not to get mad at me? Before we departed the ship, the geth approached me looking for work. I told him... uh, "it"... to do a little digging around this facility."

Tuhrop's eyes widened with suprise. "Why did you not tell me this before?"

"Because you were already off the ship by the time Rogue came up to me on the Engineering deck."

"Dammit Ulrich! You could have compromised everything! Had it ever occured to you that Rogue could have be detected by the security systems?!"

"The thought did occur, but Rogue assured me that his hacking abilities could bypass the security systems and avoid detection. Otherwise, there would be alarms going everywhere by now."

"Oh yeah, I'm so glad we found this data" Zack said sarcastically as he leaned against a wall.
__________________________________________________ ______________

Rogue had waited until the group was escorted to their quarters before it moved. It had silently followed Hawking until it found what it was looking for. It waited by the door, until a man walked up to the door and opened it. Rogue followed the man inside and waited for the right opportunity. Another man left the room, leaving just the one. It watched the man until he yawned. Rogue slammed the man's head into the table, knocking him out. Rogue placed the man back in the chair with his head resting on his arms. When he woke up, he would just assume he had dosed off.

With that Rogue looked to the terminal. It began to type, quickly bypassing anything that dare be in its way. It stopped typing, and turned to leave the room. Rogue had disabled the security systems with ease, and now it could finish the other part of his mission. It could access the more important files, which meant locating Hawking's office where Rogue would find what it was looking for.

((Well, I was assuming we all discuss the next step. Afterward, Rogue contacts Tom and we progress through the story. But if you want something to happen during then, lets bring it ))

Tuhrop paces around the room. "Next time you have another bright idea Tom, make sure I'm the first to know about it."

"But it wasnt my idea..." Tom scratched his head.

"Rogue is just a machine, Tom!" Tuhrop replied sternly. "But then again, it might give us a little heads-up on which side is which. Whether Cerberus' presence is lurking here."

A humming noise rang from the door. It opened up, and Neesa walked in. She smiled apoligetically.

"Sorry to interupt. How are our accomodations?"

"Do you need something?" Tuhrop went straight to the point.

"We need to have a chat with one of your crew members. Specifically, the one whom first encountered the data on the Cerberus Vessel."

Tuhrop glanced at Tom. "Your looking at him right now."

Tom looked a little scepticle. "What sort of questions?"

"Theres no need to worry." Neesa raised an assuring hand. "Just general questions we need in order to file a report to the Systems Alliance."

Tom stared at Tuhrop. Tuhrop hesitantly nodded. ''Very well. Take your time with Tom."

((Hooray! Lol, thank you PK! Anyway, I will post any OOC comments on the discussion and recruitment thread in the future, promise.....Except this one of course, and any short comments that would be more preferable to say here in the RP, etc.))

Kallic had been surprisingly quiet on the way into the facility, simply fidgeting away on his Omni-Tool the entire time.

Once they had been 'accommodated' with their quarters Kallic had proceeded to silently scour the room for bugs and other surveillance devices, and once satisfied, stood in the shadow of his larger companion, Chiron, fiddling away on his Omni-Tool still; listening to the Captain scold Tom about the independence of his actions with Rogue at the same time. He would give his input when they would ask for it, at the moment however he was content to do his job...And watch them debate.

Suddenly the door hummed and slid open, the representative named Neesa entering.

"Sorry to interrupt. How are our accommodations?"

"Could use more privacy, personally," Kallic muttered off to the side making a vague indication to his bug search not too long ago.

"Do you need something?" The Captain asked straightforward.

"We need to have a chat with one of your crew members. Specifically, the one whom first encountered the data on the Cerberus Vessel."

"Your looking at him right now."

"What sort of questions?" His crew mate, Tom, asked.

"Theres no need to worry. Just general questions we need in order to file a report to the Systems Alliance."

Kallic raised what counted as an eyebrow for him at this remark.

''Very well. Take your time with Tom." The Captain told her, Kallic completely uncertain as to whether this was a safe idea or not; if she were speaking to him here that was one thing, if she were taking him somewhere else, that was another matter completely.

For the first time since he'd been in the facility Kallic turned his unique blue-hued Omni-Tool off, and looked up, an indication that - for most that knew him well enough - he was finally uncertain of the safety of the situation, or at least that of one of his crew mates. It was simple and subtle, but he knew that it was enough to garner attention from those who knew him, hopefully the Captain would notice this and create some precautions to having Tom going off alone - if that were to occur. Even if those precautions were made after they left.

Chiron remained silent as Neesa entered the room. He looked to Kallic, who was busy with his omni-tool. His friend always seemed to be doing something, not that there was anything wrong with that.

''Very well. Take your time with Tom."

Chiron nodded his head slowly and looked back over at Kallic. He had turned his omni-tool off and had his head up. Something was troubling Kallic, and he guessed it had something to do with what just happened. He looked over at Tuhrop and waited for him to speak.

Zack had leaned back in a chair, trying to pass the time. It felt like ages for him since he held one of his weapons. It was practically torture for the mercenary. He looked around the room for something to do, but sadly he couldn't find anything. He waited until Neesa was done speaking before looking over at his new favorite asari.

"You know cutie I still haven't gotten a name from you," the merc said.

Rogue silently moved down the hallway. Now that the security was disabled, it wouldn't have to worry about being detected. Rogue would make sure to thoroughly search the databases for any information it could find. Rogue hacked opened a door with ease, and slipped inside.

It came across a terminal and got to work. Rogue searched for whatever it could find. It searched through nearly every file, looking for anything about Cerberus. Sadly it seemed that this was base had nothing to offer...that was until Rogue thought of something else. It had searched every file about the base in order to find something about Cerberus. What about the organics working in the base however? Rogue went back to the terminal to run a background check on every organic that was working in this base.

Neesa left with Tom, leaving the rest of the crew in the quarters. He noticed Kallics omni-tool was switched off.

"Dont worry. They told us to not bring weapons inside." Tuhrop crossed his arms. "They didnt say anything about Biotic Amps."

If trouble were to occur, hopefully Tom's well known biotic shockwave would be enough to knock a few guards down. But Tuhrop wasn't one to take chances.

He looked at the spot where Tom was standing, near a table. There was something on that table. Tuhrop approached it. I looked like some type of data chip. He picked it up and gave it to Kallick.

"I think Tom left this for us." Tuhrop speculated. The data chip was a communications relay between Tom and Rogue. Obviously while Tom is being interrogated, things would get a little awkward if they found he was communicating with a Geth inside their own base. "Smart boy."

VISITORS' QUARTERS, RESEARCH FACILITY

Apparently, the Vanguard--Zack-- wasn't a true adept at reading asari body language. Quiri knew that her muscles were as taut as a tiger's when it was about to pounce. Not only that, but her scalp was absolutely killing her. The "thousand tickles" she had felt before were giving way to pinpricks, and they were painful. Desperately, she glanced up toward the ceiling.

Ventilation duct. A little biotic push, and--There! The grating yielded.

Fortunately, no one else seemed to notice the noise. Raising a finger to her lips in the direction of Zack, she leapt up into the air while Captain Tuhrop and the others were distracted. Success! The asari wasn't exactly a trained professional at leaping vertically into ventilation ducts, but when adrenaline and sheer terror were at work, they successfully "trumped" lack of skill.

I'm sorry, Captain. If we don't get out of this alive, I will have paid for this mistake, but-- She bit her lower lip to keep from screaming. This isn't my normal danger signal. It's been amplified--it's BEING amplified somehow. The natural biochemical impulses in my brain are slowly being pushed toward systemic overload by an unnatural cause. Meaning, it's synthetic. Man-made. If I don't find what it is and stop it NOW, I'll have a cerebral hemmorhage.

Slowly pulling the grating shut behind her with a barely-audible click, Quiri started crawling through the pitch-darkness, depending on her other senses to make up for what her natural eyesight lacked. Most of all, she relied upon pain. The stronger it became, the closer she knew she was getting to the source of the agony. Twist and turn, round and round, crawl silently or lose some ground...This, the asari knew, was her current motto.

Tuhrop handed the data chip relay to Kallic to insert in his omni tool.

"Contact Rogue and see what he is up to." Tuhrop requested. "Now Quiri, I have a job-for----"

Tuhrop turned around to see the Asari was no where to be seen. "Where the hell did she..." he glanced at Zack. "You didnt scare her off with those creepy infactuations of yours, did you?" he crossed his arms.

Tuhrop looked up at the ceiling, to see that the ventilation shaft above. Could Quiri really have gone up through the vents that quickly within a few seconds?

"Where the hell is she? What the hell could she be doing?"

------------------------------------------------------------------

First all he saw was pitch black. Then his vision adjusted to only a blurriness, he couldnt make out where he was. Tom immediatly gathered he was sitting on a chair, but the rest of his body of numb.

"The sedative is wearing off already?!" a voice said. Tom couldnt tell if it was male or female.

"The effects are designed to be temporal, so it can be out of his system before we can apply the serum." That voice he definatly recognised, as his hearing properly adjusted. In the end, he had to ask himself; why was he not suprised?

Tom tried to remember back. The last thing he remembered was a sting at the back of his neck, just as they were escorting him down the corridor. Then he lost consciousness immediatly afterward.

"Do... your worst..." Was all he could mumble. "You'll... only be... wasting... time..."

RESEARCH FACILITY--VENTILATION DUCTS

((I'm going to create a room in the facility, and some seriously creepy crap!))

Fan. Fan. Maybe that way--no--another fan. Quirinius braced herself against the cool blasts of air that were coming from three different directions in the research facility's ventilation ducts. Maybe I'm lost. I hope not...

Sharply-increasing pain told her that this was definitely not the case. The asari crawled a few more feet forward and fell straight down through another grating! When she landed unceremoniously in the middle of a strange and sterile white room, all she could think about was the agony enfolding her.

Struggling to her feet, Quirinius slapped her hands against her temples and begged the goddess Athame not to let her scream. Secrecy was key here. All that seemed to be in the room were computer consoles--perhaps important data?--and an electrical wall with glowing blue tubes surrounding something.

Someone. The object in the middle of the wall was, oddly, a salarian. He wasn't speaking--in fact, his jaw seemed to be wired into the apparatus! However, the panicked look in his eyes told the asari to spring into action. Stuffing a leather gauntlet into her mouth, Quiri threw herself toward the wall with a biotic charge. Why does it seem to be far weaker than usual?

Reflexively, she punched the console that controlled the wall with her right hand--the one that still had a leather gauntlet protecting it. Nothing. Rage filled the asari's veins as she did so again and again, fighting the pain.

"Nnnngh!" mumbled the helplessly-trapped salarian. "Rurghl hurghl mmmmote!"

That did it. Quiri saw that his eyes had darted toward a remote nearby. Lunging for it, the asari mashed every single button simultaneously.

The tubes on the panel-wall mercifully dimmed, and the salarian relaxed.

Quiri, stepping forward slowly, noticed that she was no longer in danger of suffering any more cerebral damage that she already had. Relief flooded her whole body. "Can...can I...get you out of that wall?" she asked humbly.

The salarian thrashed his head violently back and forth in a negative gesture.

She felt stupid. "Right. Too much glass to be broken. I'd...injure you instead of helping you. My name is Quirinius V'tala. Would you like to meld your consciousness with mine? Your jaw seems to be entangled with the glass tubing, and I don't want to hurt you any more than you've already been hurt." When the salarian nodded his assent, Quiri opened her mind to his.

Too much pain. Too much pain. Withdraw. No-no-no-no-no...

She gently obeyed, but not completely. Better. Can...can think now. My name is Subject Ten. Can't remember real name. Experiment. Confidential.

"You mean these people were experimenting on you?" Quiri asked, doing a double take.

Correct. Subjects One through Nine have expended all bioenergy. A pause. Provided electricity through biochemical overstimulation. Brain power equals volts. 'Renewable energy source'. Potentially unlimited.

She couldn't believe it. "That's unconscionable! That was your purpose here?"

Correct.

"You didnt scare her off with those creepy infactuations of yours, did you?"

"Whoa whoa, creepy? I think you meant to say charming there," Zack replied in his defense.

Though as insulted as he was, Tuhrop did give him this mystery asari's name. That he considered payment for her current whereabouts, even though his new crush did ask him to remain quiet.

"Quiri the cutie went up into that vent while the rest of you guys were talking. Where she is now though is beyond me," Zack said.

Rogue went through every doctor, soldier, engineer, etc. It scanned through every line of information, looking for anything remotely useful. If Rogue had the ability to sigh, it currently would be doing that. Not that knowing one of the workers here likes blueberry pie isn't fascinating, its just Rogue was looking for any traces of Cerberus.

Suddenly Rogue spotted something. Within this database Rogue found a message. While normally it would have discarded it, the information it contained was exactly what the geth was looking for. Rogue quickly traced the letter back, before activating it omni-tool.

"Human:Tom respond," Rogue said into its omni-tool.

"Don't worry. They told us to not bring weapons inside. They didn't say anything about Biotic Amps." The Captain tried to reassure Kallic, who only stared blankly at him in response.

The Captain retrieved something Tom had discreetly placed on the table he'd been near before departing.

"I think Tom left this for us. Smart boy." Captain Tuhrop mused before continuing; handing Kallic the relay device, "Contact Rogue and see what he is up to."

"Will do, Captain," he responded. No sooner had he up-linked the chip to his Omni-Tool than a synthetic voice came through: "Human:Tom respond."

"Tom busy with interview, Rogue, this is Kallic - Any information for us?" He responded while listening in on the background conversation about Quirinius suddenly disappearing into the vents, and the chauvinistic mercenary Zack making excuses for his pathetic advances toward the asari, as well as explaining what she did. It was fortunate Zack wasn't really an 'official' crew member of the ship or he'd be in deeper trouble - or at least he should have been. But Captain Tuhrop was known for patience and leniency, Kallic, a former military captain himself, would not have been.

As for Quirinius and what she'd done, well, she could have said something instead of running off; and since she was a far more official crew member now, Kallic couldn't say how the Captain would react to that.

Kallic just rolled his eyes and shook his head at Zack as he waited for a response from Rogue.

RESEARCH FACILITY--BIOENERGY CONTROL ROOM

((In which Quirinius V'tala will play her true "endgame" as a character.))

Quiri turned to the salarian once more, who was still attached to the wall.

"So, what do we do now? How do I break the tubing and set you free?"

You cannot. Asari! Hide! Even though my tympanic membranes have been severely damaged by electrical currents, I can still hear. There are footsteps approaching in our near vicinity. Quickly! Beneath that data console desk!

She dove underneath it, just in time to see a research station orderly enter: human male, early twenties. He was pushing a medical cart with an I.V.

"All right. Time for your intravenous fluids, you amphibious bastard," he said.

"Mmmmmmmalking cloaca!" the salarian mumbled through his wired jaw.

The orderly clicked his tongue and shook his head. "Manners, manners!" he chided. "Just think: I was about to give you your muscle relaxant with a little something special. Atropixenine, with additives, and now you get nothing."

Atropixenine with additives? Not a normal dose, then. Possibly poison.

The orderly spoke again. "Instead, you know what's going to be pumping through your worthless veins in a matter of seconds? An ultra-powerful stimulant that will let you feel every volt that courses through your brain! This will most likely kill you once the juice hits, but that's what the boss wants. You're all used up anyway, Ten, or on the brink of it." He shook his head. "Me? I'd just shoot you, but you still have a little bioenergy to tap."

He pushed the cart forward, his face a perfectly professional blank slate.

Oh, no, asari! Help me! That fool doesn't even notice your presence!

Quiri emerged from her hiding place and sprang to action. "Not so fast!"

"Wha--?" The orderly did the only thing he could think of the moment, throwing the full weight of the medical cart in Quiri's direction. Unfortunately for her, she couldn't dodge out of the way in time, and the heavy apparatus slammed right into her. She crumpled to the floor, fought and kicked, and was eventually subdued by a warm fluid....atropixenine...lulling her again.

When she awoke, she felt several cold things--tubes--enveloping her.

"I wondered why the wall was off," the orderly began with a wry smile. "I also wondered what gave Subject Ten the courage to call me a walking cloaca. In both cases, it seems to have been you," he said. "No matter. You're Subject Eleven. I released Ten from the wall. He's not going to get very far before our security guards shoot him down, but I gave him a running start. You should be proud." He picked up the remote that powered the wall console.

Quiri closed her eyes and sent a message from her consciousness to Tuhrop's.

Get out! Get out! Get out! Get out! Get out...Abort the mission. Now.

"What, are you actually meditating right now?" the assistant sneered. "Too bad there's nobody to 'embrace eternity' with, except for me." Licking his lips, he stepped forward to Quiri. "You want to? I'm not above a beautiful asari..."

"I'm above an ugly human," Quirinius replied icily. "Release me."

"You really think that's going to work? You have a TON of bioenergy in you."

"As soon as you use that remote, mister, my brain shall suffer an instant hemorrhage! I won't even give you ten volts. I'll die, and your boss is going to make you catch hell. The pain from this bioenergy wall is what brought me down here, anyway. I crawled through the ventilation ducts to find it, too."

Get out. Get out. I'm lost. Get out. Get out...

"Clever. Too bad all that brainpower is going into all this tubing, missy."

"It can certainly try. I'm warning you."

The orderly tightened his grip on the remote. Quiri sent one final message:

If you can, find Subject Ten. He'll tell you what happened. ...I'm sorry...

The orderly punched a button on the remote. Immediately, every fuse and light fixture in the entire research facility EXPLODED. That meant all was pitch-dark, and would be for several minutes until the emergency generators activated. That meant that, if they wanted to, the Captain and his crew would have precious time to try and escape from the research facility. With no power, none of the security locks were still engaged on any of the doors!

The personnel immediately started swearing, wondering what went wrong:

"Where the !#%@ is the !@$%ing power?!"

"Hell! The lights! Somebody turn the lights back on, or you're all DEAD!!!"

"The cells! Someone go to the cells, immediately! The subjects will escape!"

As anyone could see, chaos was reigning in the formerly orderly facility.

"Tom busy with interview, Rogue, this is Kallic - Any information for us?"

"Human:Neesa is working with Cerberus," Rogue replied.

Rogue pulled its rifle off of its back, and held it with one hand for the time being. Rogue kept the other free in case it needed to continue conversation with Kallic.

Suddenly the lights went out, and the terminal shut off. Rogue stepped out into the hallway to see that it too was dark. It seemed the entire facility might be experiencing a power outage. Rogue had no trouble seeing through the dark, but it knew the humans were not as fortunate.

"Requesting permission to retrieve Human:Tom from his interview," Rogue said into its omni-tool once more.

Tom slowly regained all his senses together, after the tranquilizer weared off abit. He raised his head in time to see the Cerberus bitch walk out the door, not before giving her collegues a set of instructions before she left.

One of the interrogators approached Tom. "Sorry we have to do this to you, but I'm afraid its necesary."

"Necasary for what?" Tom replied, sternly.

"Secrecy must be kept. We cannot allow the Systems Alliance to learn of Project Genesis. This must also be kept silenced to the general public, and the only way we can ensure that is to eliminate witnesses. Starting with you, the one who found the data in the first place."

Tom clenched his fists. He couldnt use his biotics. Smart move by Cerberus - they must have temporarily disabled his amp. But all of a sudden, the lights to the room went out. The emergency red light illuminated the room dimly. The interrogator spoke to the two way mirror.

"Status Report of the Facility!" he barked.

"Uh, it appears to be a power failure. Emergency Systems should be online within a few minutes."

__________________________________________________ _________________

Tuhrop heard the conversation between Kallic and Rogue. Most troubling - he had his suspicions on Hawking, but he was a little suprised it was Neesa, the "personal assistant". They were probably going to take them out one at a time, starting with Tom.

Tom could be in serious danger. "We have to go rescue Tom. Hopefully they need him alive in order to--"

He could hear Quirinius' voice. "Get out! Get out! Get out! Get out! Get out...Abort the mission. Now."

He turned around. Nobody was there. "If you can, find Subject Ten. He'll tell you what happened. ...I'm sorry..."

"Subject Ten?" Tuhrop echoed. He hit his head, seeing if he could snap out of it. All of a sudden, the lights to the room went out. "Well, that makes things easy for us." Tuhrop walked over to the door, and opened it. The power failure must have deactivated all security locks.

"Lets look for Tom. Keep an eye out for Quiri as well." And this Subject 10, if I'm not going crazy.

PITCH-DARK RESEARCH FACILITY--INTERIOR

Subject Ten was an excellent sprinter. He could run like the wind despite his twenty years--middle age for one of his species. In his childhood and youth, he'd often played a game with his friends called "Run, Salarian, Run." It was a scenario of revenge. His compatriots had all gleefully pretended to be krogan--the "hitters", who were trying to assassinate the one salarian primarily responsible for the genophage--the "runner". Subject Ten had always volunteered to be the runner, but he was refused more often than not.

That was because, when he was the runner, his "hitter" friends lost every time. None of them could even hope to catch him because of all the diving and zigzagging that he did through their enemy lines. Subject Ten loved it!

He didn't like this at all. There was far too much danger afoot, and besides, in the darkness he couldn't even see the exits because there were no signs illuminating them! Nevertheless, he continued on through the black corridors of the facility, filled with panicking people and hidden machinery.

Amidst all the swearing and bickering going on, he discerned this outburst:

"What the hell happened? Answer me! Don't just clam up like an idiot!"

A timid voice responded, "I--I think it was Keith's fault. You know, the BWO?"

"Bioenergy Wall Orderly?" Surprise, and then dismay. "That dumb@$$. I should have known he'd screw things up sooner or later, with the probability leaning more toward 'sooner'! What'd he do, push all the buttons on the remote?" A heavy sigh. "No. Not even Keith is stupid enough to do that."

"Right." A pause. "I know the boss told him to terminate Subject Ten, because let's face it--he's all used up. His brain's so fried he can't even remember his own name." In the darkness, Subject Ten smiled briefly. "If I know Keith, he did as instructed and then found a Subject Eleven too fast."

"What? Where?!" The other person was furious. "That can't be right!"

"That's the only thing that could have possibly caused this to happen. The power didn't just 'go out', as it would during one of the ubiquitous storms on this island. Every single light fixture, data console, heavy machine, heater--everything that depends on a source of bioenergy, which is the only source of power in here besides the backup generators--EXPLODED. That doesn't happen unless someone with WAY too much bioenergy got put into the wall at the last minute." Another heavy sigh. "Keith would do something like that."

"!@$*." The other person punched the timid bearer of bad tidings, who gave a grunt of pain. "As soon as the power comes back on, we're going to check that wall. Together. If there's ANYONE in there besides Subject Ten, then you're the one who's going to get it. Not me. I'm going to tell the boss you told Keith--if he's still here, the worthless moron--to find a Subject Eleven."

"No! You can't do this to me! We're best friends, not only co-workers, Juxon!"

"If it's your @$$ or mine that gets shot, I'd rather it be yours. No offense."

Somewhere nearby in the darkness, did a certain turian's mandibles twitch?

Subject Ten couldn't tell. All he could sense was a tall and crested shadow...

"Human:Neesa is working with Cerberus," came the surprising, yet ominous news.

"Mmm," was all Kallic muttered as his brow furrowed ever so slightly at this news.

"Requesting permission to retrieve Human:Tom from his interview," Rogue asked over the com.

"We have to go rescue Tom. Hopefully they need him alive in order to--" The Captain said aloud, pausing suddenly, looking about as if trying to find someone, then smacking his head like a bug was on it, muttering, "Subject Ten?"

Kallic raised a concerned eyebrow at this but continued his task of communicating with Rogue. But before anyone knew it the entire room went dark causing Kallic to stop before he'd even started continuing said duty. The Captain uttering, "Well, that makes things easy for us."

"Lets look for Tom. Keep an eye out for Quiri as well." The Captain said to them after opening the door to the room, Kallic nodding and turning back to his Omni-Tool to finally respond.

"You heard that Rogue? We're heading out to find Tom, suggest looking for Quirinius instead; can perform infiltration on this end, Mmm...Myself," Kallic told Rogue, knowing that splitting the bill between the separate entities would be smarter and save them all time; after all, they couldn't have taken Tom far in such a short period of time, and Kallic was experienced in 'espionage'-like tactics, finding him wouldn't be that difficult - Quirinius was another matter as she could quite literally be anywhere, and Rogue seemed perfect for finding her in the poor conditions the facility was in right now.

Almost as an immediate afterthought Kallic proceeded to say something else to Rogue before ending communications, "Avoid casualties Rogue, facility still Alliance and most of the personnel with it, stealth best for you still. But if caught, go for knockouts and crippling strikes, no killing - please; security just doing their jobs."

With that Kallic deactivated his Omni-Tool and ended communications on his end, moving up next to the Captain, "Ideas, sir? Or are we, as the human saying goes, 'flying-by-the-seat-of-our-pants'?"


"But in you...I see the potential to see the Force die, to turn away from its will..."
"You are beautiful to me, exile. A dead spot in the Force, an emptiness in which its will might be denied."
"But no Jedi ever made the choice you did. To sever ties so completely, so utterly, that it leaves a wound in the Force..."
"I would have killed the galaxy to preserve you...You are more precious than you know..."-now...it's verbatim!-A quote from Darth Traya (Kreia)

"You heard that Rogue? We're heading out to find Tom, suggest looking for Quirinius instead; can perform infiltration on this end, Mmm...Myself," Kallic told the geth.

"Acknowledged," Rogue responded.

The still invisible geth proceeded down the hallway with ease. Rogue kept its rifle in its arms as it moved silently. Rogue stopped when it reached a door it had to hack earlier. It was about to hack it again, when the door simply opened. It seemed the blackout did something to the security as well.

"Avoid casualties Rogue, facility still Alliance and most of the personnel with it, stealth best for you still. But if caught, go for knockouts and crippling strikes, no killing - please; security just doing their jobs."

It seemed risky, but the salarian probably knew best. It had learned different fighting styles from the different organic races. If Rogue was attacked, it could easily attack without killing.

"Very well, safeties will be engaged," Rogue responded.

Rogue placed the rifle on its back once more. It didn't know how Quirnius got separated from the group, but the asari wouldn't be too hard to find in a mostly human facility.

Tuhrop activated his omni-tool and switched the Torch Mode on, which illuminated the darkness. "We'll have to be quick, and cautious." Tuhrop added. "We dont have any weapons, so our Biotic Specialists will have to surround the party... which only leaves Zack, because one is in captivity and the other has skuddled someplace else."

Tuhrop approached Zack. "Are you up for the task, Zack? Once we get Tom, you wont need to be under too much preasure. Hopefully they'll have sometype of armory next to the interrogation chambers aswell."

Tuhrop walked into the darkness of the very dim hallway.

Zack chuckled to himself, amused by Tuhrop's question. Sure he had to cover the whole party, but he could knock any human back that attacked the group. Getting to hurt his own race always made him happy.

"I can handle it no problem," Zack said eagerly.

He followed Tuhrop down the hallway, and began channeling biotic energy into his arms. A shockwave might be too deadly, slam was just as deadly, and he didn't want to use an entire charge. Then again these guys might be armed...he'd go with a pull throw combo then.

((Hey Tysyacha, just re-reading over your post. I assume the "twitching mandibles" belong to.... Tuhrop? :/ ))

The group ventured along the dark corridors, relying on their Omni-Tool Flash Lights. Every now and then did a security mech approach the group, enchanting "Hostiles Detected."

Possibly reprogrammed.. maybe not. But Zack seemed to have no trouble dealing with them.

Tuhrop twitched his mandibles, as he saw a dark figure snooping around the hall. His flashlight revealed a half naked Salarian standing with cold feet. There seemed to be some puncture markings around his limbs.

"...Hello?" Tuhrop added. He wondered if he was a prisoner of the facility. "What are you doing out here?"

PITCH-DARK RESEARCH FACILITY--INTERIOR

((Yeah, that was what I meant. Sorry if I sounded presumptuous there.))

The salarian swallowed hard. "Subject Ten," he said. "Experimental specimen. Bioenergy wall overload--far too much output. Asari--asari dead. Cerebral cortex hemorrhage." He shook his head. "She came to find me. Rescue me. Perhaps bioenergy wall was causing her intense intercranial agony. Not sure."

He gazed into Captain Tuhrop's eyes. "Bioenergy wall means sentient beings are turned into living batteries. I was the last, before the asari. Wanted to release me, but proved impossible. I regret that she is gone. Was my hero."

All of a sudden, with an ominous whirrrrr, the power came back on...

...and twenty to thirty astonished personnel gaped at Subject Ten.

He almost wet his pants. "RRRRUUUUUUUUUUUUUUNNNN!" he screamed before fleeing. Drawing their own weapons, the research staff opened fire.
