Here's Ch 80-Part 1. Enjoy the show-K&K
DISCLAIMER: OK Ami, it's all yours! First, thank you to Mr. T. for the use of the Angels. Thanks to everyone else who is letting us use their creations. How was that, Yuri? Great! Oh yes it was, Kei! Well, we left you up in the air so let's get to Chapter80 without further preamble:-
'The 'Bay' Bolts' or 'Bagging the Babes'
Guess who had just reached the bridge? Right! Kei O'Halloran had just spoken quietly from behind Faye and Rally. "You'll both either give me your words not to antagonize either of those vessels out thre or by Kami, I'll toss the pair of you into the shimatta brig. Understand? Well?" she added quietly. (A sure sign of danger when Kei goes quiet, folks!) "We promise, Boss." sulked the two sullen 'cowgirls' resignedly.
Legato, Mar and Kome had run into each other in the corridor and had ridden the lift upstairs together. All three piled past Captain and Exec to get onto the bridge where Legato took the pilot's seat while Kome and Mar raced into the nav room and took up their own posts. Yuri Donovan quietly sat down beside Legato in the co-pilot's seat. Ivanhoe stood behind Legato while Nick Wolfwood stood at the firing panel controls. Legato turned to his Boss and announced "Flight crew all present and correct, Captain." Then he resumed his pre-flight checkups. "Arigato, onegai stand by for further orders, Commander." replied Kei, striding past them to the rear exit. "I'll be in my ready room. Ivanhoe, you're with me." Captain and Security Chief walked side by side down the back hallway to Kei's ready room. The door was already open and the two 'cowgirls' were standing with their backs to the huge conference table leaning back on their chairs. Ivy and kei were the only 'Angel 2' flight crew members present at this meeting. The room soon became crowded as the rest of those summoned arrived.
Finally Kei took her customary seat, her security chief at her side. At a sign from the Boss, Donnatella keyed the doors shut and sealed them. "You may all be seated." said Ivanhoe who remained standing by his superior's side, his plasma rifle held at port arms. They all sat down and awaited their Captain's next words. "First off, arigato to you all for coming on such short notice. As you may or may not be aware, two pirate vessels are hovering in orbit just above us. Oro their intentions are we do not yet know, however, both ships are from 'this' time era. Emma has informed us that the 'Botany Bay' is under the command of the infamous pirate 'Khan' while the 'Sol Bianca' is commanded by the female brigand 'Feb'. Khan is 'supposed' to be somewhere in the 'Chimerian Wastelands' on the other side of the universe and 'Feb' was thought to be raising holy jigoku somewhere in the bloody 'Gamma Quadrant'! They've probably both been displaced by fluctuations in the continuum. Unless they exhibit signs of hostility, my orders are to leave them both alone! It's better to be prepared though, hence, this meeting. You all know which of our three ships you'll be travelling on when we leave 'Endor' for 'Shimougou'. After this meeting, you will all report to your assigned ships as quickly as possible. In the 'rare' event that we need to use the 'Angel's' four shuttles, the 'Queen's' two or 'Starcrusher's' three, the same crews as before will be used. The kids will, of course, remain aboard the 'Angel'. We'll resume our practice of going armed at all times and oro I have to say now may not sit well with all of you but I've got to say it. Our three vessels are now under the direct authority and command of 'UG' and the 3WA. Since I'm the highest ranking line officer of those two organizations, you will consider all three ships as being under my direct control. Since piracy is seen as being an 'act of war', the flight, engineering, security and weapons teams as well as all the fighters are all hereby deputized into the 3WA. As suvh, all assigned personnel will wear official 3WA uniforms while on duty and there will be 'NO' exceptions. OK. Pack up, draw your uniforms, weapons, supplies and gear and report to your respective posts. To recap for you: Jane 'Emma' Emeraldas commands the 'Queen'; Han Solo commands 'Starcrusher' and I command the 'Angel 2', however, since I control all three ships and must coordinate things from here, I am delegating command of the 'Angel 2' to Legato Bluesummers. He's got more experience with pirates than I have, anyway. Go to your posts at once. Remember that if you're targeted by the 'Sol' or the 'bay' raise your shields and cloak. Keep your weapons powered up and ready at all times. You need not decloak to fire but you will engage the enemy only on my orders. I don't think that 'they' know oro the Hell they're doing here either. That's it- any questions? Nai? Then you are dismissed. Good luck, tomos watashi (my friends)." finished the redhead. The meeting was over and they all dispersed to their assigned tasks.
"Yo! Khan! Have you figured out where the Fxxx we are yet, man?" The svelte dark-haired captain of the 'Sol Bianca' was becoming quite annoyed with the self-centered megalomanical skipper of the 'Botany Bay'! Why had she ever agreed to an alliance with that baka and his band of bloodthirsty cutthroats? Those guys gave piracy a bad name!
"My dear kawaii Captain February, you have merely to look at the heavens to know where it is we are. This is the 'Delta Quadrant' and that red planet to the East of us is 'Antares'. 'Minerva', 'Eldrad' and 'Lyoko' are also clearly discernible. That means that the world below us can only be 'Antare's' third moon- 'Endor'. How we got here I have no idea. How the ship of the kawaii 'Queen Emeraldas' suddenly appeared before us and just as suddenly vanished only to make its reappearance on the surface of 'Endor' beside those other two strange vessels is also a mystery to the great 'Khan'! However, if I may hazard a guess, my dear, I'd say that John Berringer and his idiotic vendetta against the two young damsels of the 3WA plays some small part in it. In my humble opinion--" answered Khan.
"Stow it, Khan! Oro the Hell are you planning to do now?" yelled Feb angrily. "Holy shit! I remember now!" cried Feb's blonde executive officer in the process of pulling on her uniform slacks after removing her heavy spacesuit. "Captain! I don't know how the Fxxx we got here but we sure as Hell better get outta here and fast! This sector is crawling with 'cowboys' and Khan- if you're still listening, we're smack dab in the middle of the Kami shimatta 'Aquarian Galaxy'! That's 'UG', 'Starfleet', 'Galactic Command' and 3WA turf! The middle ship down there is Berringer's flagship, the 'Starcrusher' and that neon sign beside it is Kei O'Halloran's 'Lovely Angel 2'! Khan! Feb! She's the baka bitch that fried Max Berringer three years ago! She's 3WA, man!" yelled Commander April, double-timing to the bridge with all thoughts of changing totally forgotten!
