"Yes this is Jesse. She and her mother have been staying here at the base since the incident. I felt kinda bad they didn't really have alien insurance." Lara said a little jokingly trying to break as much tension in her life as possible. Her Pshycologist asked her to. "Jesse This is General Walker"
Jesse waited until Lara had delt with the General before answering, "Yes but I'll be glad when my home is repaired, although I guess it won't be my home anymore, not like the old place.." A glimmer of sadness glossed over her face as she lowered her head slightly at the though of her entire home being re-built.
Snapping out of it, she looked up, "I still have some questions though, about this place, the Transformers - what and what they are, but I don't really know who to ask...", emitted the girl
Outside the Altech.... Time: 11:05a.m.
Outside the Altech base things were pretty quiet, for the moment, but for Sergents Walker and Benedict, they knew this wouldn't last when the Vice president arrived. Up and down between the barricades, Sergeant First Class Lieutenant Holly Dunbar and Private First Class Simon Williams patrolled the lines of railing, their weapons trained and pointed ready, making sure they're was no trouble..
(From the Locron/beach thread. For whomever cares to answer:)
As the captain barked out instructions the communications expert on the ship began to carry out his assigned task. “Hello Altech. This is the British navel Carrier U.S.S. lexicon. Approximately thirty minutes ago some sort of meteor landed just off the coast of California. Shortly afterwards we picked this up on our sonar.” The communication expert began to play the message they had just picked up only to be interrupted by a huge creaking of the hull which made the entire crew go silent.
From comunications Private Sally Glumose got the message. But couldn't respond at the transmission ended. "Well thats not good at all. Sargent im reporting this directly to the General's I will be back in ten minutes." Sally said
"Ok I will have somone take your post while you deliver the message." The Sargent said as Sally got the printout and ran out of communications.
Sally ran through the halls looking for the general after she wasn't in her office. She decided to head to the Medical Bay as it was General Lansings place to go and check up on the wounded.
Jesse shook the General's hand nervously, she still didn't respond well to autority figures and got nervous around them. As she shook his hand, she noticed the pips on his uniform, she didn't know much about the military, but having been told earlier he was a General, she knew that meant quite high importance, and had to ask.
As only a child could, Jessse, just came straight out and blurted out the Question. "General? But I thought Colonel Lansing was in charge here? I'm confused.."
"Well I am but even I need help from time to time Jesse. She was promoted with me. But she is just now getting used to the slight change in the issues of the Transformers. Since the Vice President is comeing to tour the Facility today. I figured you would want to jump in and learn your way around." General Lansing said as the Ensign rounded the Corner.
"General's Im sorry if im Interupting but we have a situation at Plato Beach California Here are the Printouts from the Transmission from the new Prototype Carrier from england. It was sent as an SOS but it cut out shortly after it was sent. We susspect a Decepticon must have destroyed the vessle." The Ensign spoke to the Generals
"Its down the Hall and to the left. I trust you can take care of this little situation. Oh while your at it. Send Shipwreck that direction This is definately a situation he can handle. If its a massive decepticon then we need him to take care of it we don't want another titanic on our hands." Lansing said to Genral Walker.
"Send Shipwreck, roger that Ma'am." she added before snapping to and giving a quick salute to General Lansing.
She turned on her heel then headed down the hallway to a security door, with a retinal scanner.
~Let's hope this works~ she thought, wondering if they had put her clearances in.
She bent down toward the occular reader, and it scanned her retina... About a second later the screen said
Welcome General Walker
She openned the door to a dark lit room, with red and green lit screens.
"General on deck!" said one of the military officers in the room, causing everyone to stand and everyone that was military to snap to.
"At ease." said Walker, and everyone went back to their posts.
"Who here is in communications?" said the General to the room. "I need to contact Shipwreck and the USS Lincoln." she said.
She specified the Lincoln because she knew that the Lincoln was stationed near California at the present time.
A Navy comm specialist stood up.
"Ma'am, we have an uplink to the skipper of the Lincoln... Agent Shipwreck is taking a little longer." she said, handing an headset to the General.'
"Thank you, Ensign." she said, putting on the headset.
Someone off to the side was counting down silently, with their fingers, 3, 2, 1, then pointed to the General as the Lincoln's Admiral came on.
"Hello, Admiral Jackson." she said saluting.
"Formalities require time, and we don't have it if this is the Emergency call I was expecting." he said, waving off the salute.
"Yes, sir... We recieved the signal from the Lexicon, and we'd like to see if you could scope out what's going on." she said.
"We're already prepping one of our Hornets for the task of flyover." he said. "He'll be off the deck in about two minutes." he added. "Anything else?"
"Just that you let us know what you find." she said with a smile. "Oh, and just in case, we're trying to get you some help... an older looking Battleship will be steaming your way as soon as we can get a hold of him."
"Thank you, General... Let's just hope that this 'just in case' doesn't happen." he said. "We'll let you know, Jackson out."
*end vid comm*
She smiled to herself, her Uncle served under Admiral Jackson before he was transferred to a Naval base in the states, the Admiral was a very good commander.
As Jesse was left alone she continued wandering the station, eventually deciding to get some fresh air, slowly she made her way to the reception and swung her way through the metallic-glass doors, walking through the underground car-park before walking up the long slopway that led down there. Finally outside she stopped and closed her eyes, lifting her head as she took an intake of fresh air. She missed the beach, and walking along it.
Returning to "planet earth", she snapper her eyes open and looked over at the military troops outside patrolling the barriers around the organization. All was quiet for now until one shouted across the distance, "Hey little girl what are you doing in this place, it's full of Scum!" Soon others chipped in and things began to get rowdy again,. Jesse just looked blankly, half-afraid, half in shock and the rest just uneasy...
Lara had decided to go up as well. Hearing the shouts as she waited for the Vice Presidents vehicle. "Whats going on out here?" She spoke up with a serious face on this time. The crowd was begining to get annoying to her. "Jesse are you ok?" Lara added. She knew that this was only going to get more stressfull as this war went on.
"Why don't they like you working with the Autobots?", asked Jesse looking blankly at the protesters without even turning to face Lansing, "Why can't they see you're only trying to help get rid of these... What do you call them?.. 'Decepticons'??"
There was a small glimmer of a welling in one of Jesse's eye, although she was very much a tomboy, and tried to act a little tough like nothing phased her - nothing could be further from the truth. Right now she was feeling extremely vulnerable.
"Its because they haven't seen it from our point of view. And now they feel threatend by the existance of both the Autobots and Decepticons. Since the destruction here had caused many to believe that both sides were a harm to the human race these protestors believe they can actually make a difference. When in reality all they can do is stand there and yell their lungs out over nothing but the little war from a planet far from us." Lara exclaimed as she stood there taking harsh words from the crowd. Along time ago she had orderd the men not to harm them even if they were pelted. "All we can do is endure this punishment from our own kind for even darkness never stays forever. Light will always shine upon the horizon. We will be here to make sure that they see it everyday." Lara added "If you would Could you come with me I could give you a proper tour with the Vice President he will be here any moment." Lara added giving Jesse a warm smile of comfort. She understood all to well what the girl was going through and knew that they would haft to end this war before something else bad happens again.
Hoist: Hmm, I'm guessing nothing to do with Beast Wars or Armada, so either a sequel based in or around the first renegade rp trilogy or War For Cybertron? I'm guessing War For Cybertron!
