Coriolis IC: THROUGH THE DARKNESS

Zenith heralded the dawn of a new era – and the Horizon blossomed once again. Three dozen star systems, linked by fate and by the will of the Icons, wandered together towards a brighter future. But as the Emissaries arrived, the happy days drew to a close, and the Dark between the Stars slowly came creeping back.

Zaynab prepares to dock with with the stern airlock, though she waits till the boarding party is there to actually complete the maneuver. "Why would someone disable to bow airlocks? Unless they want us to walk into a trap in the stern. Maybe there was just some horrible accident, but let's proceed cautiously until we know there's no one trying to kill us aboard." She pauses, then has an additional thought. "Maybe the people who were posing as us back at Coriolis are working in cahoots with whoever has ... well, done whatever was done to this ship."

"Stern it is, then. I don't want to chance a spacewalk if we don't have to." Amir puts on some protective clothing, and tucks his tools of the trade in his pockets. "I'm sorry if we scare some poor, stranded souls, but I'm going in armed and armored." He slings his accelerator carbine over one shoulder, and a vulcan cricket pistol in a holster.

Lastly, he holds up a drone. "Lucky for us I picked this up on my last big shopping trip. A reconnaissance probe, which we can send along down hallways and such to scout. I'd rather someone shoot at this, than my head."

"Well well." Basil eyes the drone. "After we're finished, why don't you loan it to me for a day-and-a-half? I could jury-rig it to hold an' operate a blaster."

Amir looks at Basil appraisingly. "That's an interesting idea ... yes, let's talk about it more once we get this done. Always nice to have more options."

Fayz stood at the airlock, suited up and packing his Vulcan carbine. Luckily, Amir's drone was going in first, but the Firstcomer was still planning on being the first afterwards, in case there was something lying in wait. Seeing something was one thing. They still had to rescue the crew and see if the vessel could be repaired in time. He looked back at the other three, checking to make sure they were suited up."

"Captain, Zaynab? We're ready to begin boarding procedure down here."

Zaynab docks and activates the controls that will allow them to open their airlock. "Everything should be set on this end."
