Location: G10 Onix Tags: Exploration ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ "I think I've found it, boss!" "Looks like a Kawashita probe, alright. The sensor dome's still intact!" "Good. We'll need that." "Bot, crack the dome open." "Wouldn't it be simpler just to take the whole thing back with us, boss? I bet Octan would pay well for something like that." "Trust me, Jason, we don't want Octan to know we've been here. See that little green thing in there? It's this probe's onboard computer. That would tell us what ship launched this probe." "So what?" "Let me ask you something, Jason. Which would be better: finding a space probe that we can't use and can't safely sell, for fear of getting turned in for theft of proprietary technology? Remember, Octan and Kawashita aren't at war any more. Or, getting our hands on Viktor Kramer? And the navigational codes for the entire Kawashita Group quadrant?" "The second one, of course. But what's the connection, boss? I don't get it." "What do you think the odds are, eh? A red and black ship captures Dr. Gregorovich, a top Octan scientist, and his top-secret prototypes. Then, out of the middle of nowhere, a Kawashita probe shows up, in the very same system where Gregorovich got grabbed. Pretty interesting, no?" "How do you know it was Kramer?." "I saw the footage of the ship. Octan may not know what the ship is, but I do. It was the Variga - I'd stake my life on it. This little thing is what's finally going to let us get our hands on Kramer - and maybe a few nice secrets with it? Bots, push this dome into the lava. We don't want Octan to figure out we were here. Let's get back to the ship and see what this baby can tell us."
Location: F02 Lesser Drigo Tags: Spying, Spaceship With the MANTIS and Octan fleets both in orbit around Lesser Drigo, it was only a matter of time before MANTIS would capture an Octan vessel. The MCS Trade Winds, a Merchant Confederacy ship, was on a supply run to the surface when it was intercepted by MANTIS. The crew was kept for questioning and MANTIS command saw an opportunity to use the vessel to infiltrate the Octan spaceport. They put together a group to pose as the Merchant Confederacy crew in hopes to gain information on Octan's fleet movements. Note to judges. The Octan truck is reused and should not be judged. Hawk: You three stay here. I will go and scout the area and see if I can get into the control tower while they unload the ship. You guy wait for my signal. - Spec Ops1- Hold it there pilot. The base is on lock down. There are MANTIS spys everywhere and you need special clearance to get past this point. Hawk: Sorry sir. I hear those MANTIS guys are vicious thugs. Keep up the goo…. Spec Ops1- That's enough small talk. Please return to your ship. We will be performing inspections soon. Hawk: Yes sir. - Hawk: This is bad. They will be around soon to inspect the ship. They will find out that we are MANTIS for sure. Snake: I say we go in and blast them with our death ray blasters! Sue: Yeah! Hawk: Are you two crazy? Do you know how many of them there are out there? Chogg: Chogg have an idea. Chogg is master of disguise. Chogg: Mister robot man! Could you help me here. Robot: Affirmative. Chogg: Robot is needed in the control tower. Spec Ops2: Sure go right through. Hawk: Wow Chogg, I can't believe that actually worked. Chogg: Chogg given top secret spy gear from CEO - Spec Ops3: Don't move MANTIS scum. You may have been able to fool my partner some how but your not fooling me. Chogg: Chogg has good news and bad news. Hawk: What is it. Did you get the data? Chogg: Chogg got data but Octan got Chogg. Hawk: Don't worry Chogg, we will come to you. Sue jettison the remaining containers. Snake get on the boarding ramp. Chogg Jump now. - More pictures under the spoiler tag Thanks for looking. This is my first attempt at a large ship and I underestimated how hard it would be to photograph. I might still add some more pictures tomorrow. C&C appreciated.
Location: H03 - Kaalin Tags: Spaceship, Land Vehicle Hombre, I asked you here today because you're about to take your first steps into a new world... Sorry, this is just a very emotional moment for me... ... ...No! please... shhhhh... don't say anything. There are just a few things you need to know about leadership before you go. Let's get the dogs some exercise while we talk. Come Fluffer! First, we need to discuss debriefing sessions... One. Be sure to always wear quick drying underwear. When things get messy, as debriefing sessions tend to, it's nice to know that you can carry on afterwards with a quick hand wash and line dry. Use the hair dryer for faster results. Two. Adequate hydration is essential. Especially if you plan on a marathon debriefing session with the Kawashita sales and marketing team. Their presentations can go on and on and on. Three. Always keep lotion handy. It prevents chafing which can cause prolonged debriefing sessions to become painful. I carry a tube in my underwear at all times, since one never knows when a spontaneous debriefing session may occur. Four. Sometimes you'll find yourself losing stamina during a long debriefing session and you'll start to become unable to keep up with the presentations. Our Octan PharmaTech division has pills to help you stay alert and maintain your attention. I also keep a stash of these in my underwear at all times. Five. Pay attention to where our customers eyes to tend be drawn to. We have had remarkable success with focus groups remembering our brand when we place our logo on underwear, for instance. Six. Same applies to audio branding when our customers hear our name when they are focus and stimulated. We are working on olfactory, gustational, and tactile branding where customers can smell, taste, and feel our logo. Seven... Wait a second... How the hell did we get on top of this A-hole? By the way, have you been using my shoe polish? Later... Commander Hombre, this is your pilot speaking... we will be arriving shortly and I'm being told your team is assembled and waiting. Also, if you look out the left side of the aircraft you'll notice a flock of migrating space whales moving north for the winter. ...and gentlemen it looks like your commander has arrived. I will sign off now and let him take it from here. Commander Hombre, let me introduce you to The Shareholders, Octan's special task force for dealing with the recent assassination attempts. Our point man and Emboian, Maður; veterans from the Mars Mission and specialist in this terror group Colonel Mees and Captain Vīrietis; survival expert Hernan Alvaro; on loan from the Mercy Brandy, my associate Cantillon; you've met our pilot Djevojka; and that blue guy is just around to unload the cargo. Good luck gentlemen, we have full faith in you. ...to be continued. C&C appreciated
