OOC: Hua is still at the commander’s place, right?

Pacifica checks with Hua the status of the section she’s raided. She’s taking to her using her PSI ability to talk through the speakers without using her vocal cords. She also asks Daymar (in private) about the number of men they have; she suggests taking over the least "reversible" threats (which in her opinion is missiles, then reactors, etc.)

Daymar, do you know the number of security men that are “clean” (not subverted)?

Pacifica wants to know more about the people they might face, this will help her in making suggestions. In the meantime, she suggests using Zybo to calm down the situation.

Zybo’s got the leadership to deal with those that aren’t subverted. If “our people” play along, this could give us the chance to subvert others in a less stressful situation.

Well, we took over two of three security shifts, at roughly 60 each IIRC, so there's about 60 loyalist security left. For how many men we have total, I think it's in excess of 250: 120ish security, 60 or so from the bridge, at least 65 or so prisoners from various places, and miscellaneous others.

Yeah, you can't quite talk with Hua quite yet soon enough though.

That message is going to the troops at the fore command center on deck 6.

Are you talking about Zybo or Vinobi? you don't know where either of those two are..

The security section is actually the security and moral section, so the base number per section is 30, not 60. You had around 60 security converted.



Most* of the remaining 30 security fought in the big mass combat battle. Most* of those (3/4's?) where neutralized in the fight. After the fight, while daymar was brainwashing, Sgt. Pookivo counted the numbers up, and about 15 are unaccounted for: either they escaped the battle, or they weren't in it. Three of those were taken out by pacifica, plus two more at the forward command center, so know you're looking at 10.



Sgt. Pookivo's count of officers reveals that you eliminated 17 of them in the battle, out of a total of 36. You've also got the six you converted a ways back, and Pacifica shot and impersonated Butieku, so that's another seven down: there are 12 left... actually 10, but you don't know Hua's been playing assassin yet.



Of your initial 60 security, 9 are out of action, so that's 51.


So in terms of armed men, you have 51 security, 6 officers, and 3 dreadstormers. They have 10 security and 10 officers.


You've got about 115 people from taking the three command centers (I think about five were shot). Vibibu (life support officer) is collecting his section: none of those are brainwashed, but he should have neutralized around 40 or more of them by now, with maybe 20 left. Daymar's old section is locked up, of course, so that's another 60 neutralized. Another 40 were nabbed by Daymar's fire trick.



So I'm counting about 180 people on your side total, mostly security and command centers. Another 140 are locked up without a fight, and around 20 security and 15 officers were violently put out of action.


That's just under 400 out of the 1836 men who were on the ship. But its 106 of the 126 who are armed.



Let me know if you think I missed anyone in that count.

That looks accurate, I'm glad you have better recollection of all this than I do! It sounds like we're in a pretty good position so long as no one blows up the ship!

"Good. I suppose we could soon be left with only our own officers."

I'll take my leave now and try to escape unnoticed.

OK, then I'll try to make it to the command center to talk with Daymar and Pacifica, and to tell the security amassed at the command center to check the names of the officers they found dead for a 'Zybo' and a 'Tutuna'.

It works!

There are two command centers... you can get the information either at the one on deck 9 or deck 6. Which one is Hua headed to?


You've got a lot more captured than dead... but neither Zybo nor Tutuna are among their number... they are still free.

The dreadstormers make contact with each other. Hua reports that she has shot the captain and rigged his radio to explode. Vinobi will be "leading" any soldiers who come to that location to do little to nothing.


Everyone now knows the updated troop numbers discussed above now. The officer's quarters are being held by Vinobi, the three command centers are full of security troops and converted personnel, and Vibibu is slowly collecting the life support people.



Officers and Sections worth noting:
  • Lasers is currently led by Jokuchi, who is on the dreadstormer side. Lasers is one of two sections most aware of the fighting, as it happened mostly right next to it.
  • The Warp Drive is full of engineers from motive and drivers from transport. The fighting happened near them and the security used was mostly stationed there. They shouldn't have any leadership present, as Jivithi (a converted officer) wasn't there in the battle, and he commands motive.
  • The Maneuver drive is a target for anyone trying to blow up the ship. Jivithi is probably there, commanding it.
  • The Reactor Core is another hot target. Tizu, its commander might act on her own. It has been far away from any of the fighting.
  • Missiles is a target for a self-destruct tool. Its led by Buthiji, who Vinobi thinks is one of the more likely to actually try self-destructing the ship.
  • Zybo was in the battle, but escaped, and Vinobi considers him likely to try something.
  • Tutuna, a security officer, also escaped, and is Vinobi says she's likely to try doing something.

The closer one. If they're both equally far, I'll go to the one Pacifica was at when the battle broke out. She said she needed help if I recall.

Are the security at the bottom of the ship having any problems with the off-duty personnel they've confined?

"Right, I think phase two should go like this:"
"1) We leave a pair of guards at the command centers in case any of the converted personnel have resisted Daymar's programming."
"2) We split our force so we can take control of the Missile section [I think there would be many locations; perhaps the main office?] and the Reactor core simultaneously."
"3) We check in on maneuver and lasers to see if they need any help keeping the crewmen there under control."
"After we're done with the Reactor and Missiles, we can take control of Maneuver and Lasers, then go sweeping for any astray officers and personnel like Zybo & Tutuna."
