Undercover, part 2
January 16th, 0165AL (2021)
They walked up to the building on the corner and went inside. Once they were sure no one was watching, Brad pulled out a life signs detector.
Brad: Okay, there is no one on this floor other than us, 2nd, 4th and 6th floors are empty, there is one person on the 3rd floor, and 7 people on the 5th floor.
Lt. Black: Good, our job is a lot easier if we get there before anyone else does.
They climbed the stairs to the 4th floor, and entered a small room that appeared to be a meeting room. Brad removed part of his left hand, and the separated part first formed into a green ball, then sprouted 4 legs. Brad then took the object and placed it in a potted plant on the windowsill, and they watched as it hid itself in the plant. As the rest of his hand reformed, Brad looked at the life signs detector again.
Brad: 5 new people just entered the building, do you think it is them?
Lt. Black: I hope so, I don't want to wait for too long.
They walked out of the room and down the hall to an even smaller room, and closed the door. Lt. Black pulled out a tablet computer, and Brad stuck one of the fingers on his left hand into an input port. The screen went from black, to static, to a confused blur of colors, and then to an image of the meeting room, viewed from the potted plant. They watched as the women they had seen earlier on the life signs detector entered the room. The group took out some scanners and began to search the room. Several minutes later they completed the scan, and then closed the window shade behind the plant.
The meeting lasted for about half an hour, during which they talked about an al'Hasiq Masura class warship that was recently discovered, abandon, on an uninhabited planet. The leader of the meeting, Vala, said the planet the ship was located on, Malora, has no stargate, so they would need to gather a fleet to be able to take the planet and hold it until they were able to control the al'Hasiq ship. They planned to take the planet in about 6 months, which should give them enough time to gather up the supplies they needed, without attracting too much outside attention.
After the meeting the group left the building, Brad pulled his finger out of the tablet computer, which went to the desktop.
Lt. Black: Is that saved?
They began to leave the building, and as they passed the door to the meeting room, the nanite blob squeezed under the door and crawled up Brad's leg. He grabbed it, and it reconnected with his left hand.
Lt. Black: That just seems odd...
Brad: It still is a part of me, even if it isn't attached.
As they began to walk into the forest to get back to the GS-3, 4 people jumped out from behind them, each pulling out a gun.
They turned around to face the new arrivals.
Thug: Just give us all of your valuables, including those funky glowing bracelets, and you will be okay.
He looked over a the other three people with him, who were all women, and one of them nodded.
Lt. Black: And what if we don't want to?
Thug: Then I stun you.
He fired his gun at Lt. Black, which did absolutely nothing because of her personal shield. Lt. Black then pulled out her own stunner as the group and shot one of the thugs, who instantly collapsed, as all the thugs opened fire on Lt. Black and Brad. Brad then swung his left arm around at them as it formed into a sword, causing the first thug to fall on his rear as he avoided it, before it connected with another thugs stunner, knocking it out of her hand and into a nearby tree's roots.
Thug: Just what are you?
Brad pulled out his stunner and fired at one of the thugs that were still standing, as Lt. Black did the same, and both of the thugs collapsed on top of the first, who was then shot by Lt. Black.
They began to run into the forest to the GS-3, and as they reached it, they heard the sound of another ship approaching.
The ship began firing into the forest as they got in, and Lt. Black pressed a few buttons on the control panel, activating the shield, which turned the cloak off.
Brad: It would be nice if we could have a ship that could have the cloak and the shield active at the same time...
As they flew out over the ocean Brad flew the GS-3 somewhat erratically, and managed to avoid nearly all of the weapons fire from the other ship, which looked like a modified transport ship.
2 other ships soon arrived, and opened fire on the GS-3.
Brad: Hold on.
Lt. Black: What?
Brad: Just a new flight plan.
He pulled the ship up into a half loop, then did a barrel roll to get right side up again, before beginning a 45 degree climb. The sensors told them that the 3 other ships were nowhere near as agile as the GS-3 was, and they were still attempting to turn around as Brad and Lt. Black sped off.
Lt. Black: That worked, a little wild, but it worked.
As soon as they were clear of the atmosphere, Lt. Black activated the Wapbervklex drive, and they began to fly back to the Valmal.
Brad: Lets go home.
Lt. Black: I agree.
Smarty218: Thanks for the comment!
Schulmanator: You would have to have nanites in order to blame it on them...

zelgadis: Not all planets can have the same building style.
crushedcar: It's the gate that is out of scale... but that is actually a car in the gate. And are you sure now?
