"Look, everyone" said Mk.10, turning to face the group, "I can't beginto say how bad I feel about this, but you're all like family to me,and I would never intentionally hurt any of you. So for what it'sworth, I'm sorry."For a few moments, there was an awkward silence."Oh well, C'est La Vie...Shall we go now?""Yeah" hurriedly echoed amongst the group.
"You know you hurt my girlfriend right?" Jay said to Mk.10
"Yeah...and...I'm can't express how sorry I am..."
"And my sister..."
"Good...now...do you also remember what you did to my Phoenix?"
"Actually...that was Katrina"
"Defending herself from the ship you were controlling, yes."
"look, you wern't your self, but reapir my ship when this is all over, or I'll drill a hole in your casing and send you to the midget."
Jay smirked, smugly "C'mon guy's lets move." Jay had succesfully rebooted the EVE and so he, and Mk.10 where to lead the way to the engine room, when a comm message came through.
"This is Tara to any pilots," she said, "We're going to need a pilotin the drive room."
"Ah sod it" Jay grumbled, "Can't anyone do anything on their own these days?"
He did a quick scan on all channels for the members of his department over the radio, all responded busy.
"Ambers tied up, so are Martinez, Saker, and Goddard...Efof's MIA, looks like it's gonna have to be me.."
"What about Dean?" Seymour suggested, unaware of Dean's fate "We can't lose the only one with any real working weapons!"
"Dean's dead Niples." Jay replied solemly "He was killed in action...well, eating a toastie, but the end results the same."
Jay, using the EVE's right arm fiddled about with something on the suit's right shoulder.
"No, looks like I'm the only pilot available..plus, I'm the only one with full navigational access, I can activate the drive without any auth codes from the captain or First officer."
He pulled his arm back down from his shoulder, and placed a weapons crate on the floor. "Emergency equipment, should the suit malfunction, or to equip any supporting infantry units. There should be enough ammo there to fully re-stock Mk.10's rail gun, and weapons enough for the rest of you. You guy's go ahead to fix the drive, I'll head to the drive room, I'll be waiting for your cue."
Who: Dante, Keto, Tara, Wildflower, NigmaWhere: Outside the Drive Room
When: When the scutters are closing in.
Dante cursed as he ran out of ammo, and ducked behind cover quickly to reload, as he did so a loud crashing noise was heard, and as he emerged from his hiding place a dozen scutters flew past, down the adjacent corridor, hurtling through the air aflame.
"AND STAY DOWN!!" came a voice, followed by a sound that resembled a mechanical device, walking.
Dante kept his weapon raised as the newcomer rounded the corner into sight.
"SHOOT IT!" Yelled Keto, as the immense machine headed toward them.
Dante took aim.
"SHOOT IT NOW!!" Keto yelled.
"No! WAIT!" Tara yelled, "Look through the glass! It's Jay!"
"SHOOT IT!!!" yelled Keto.
"Somebody call for a driver?" Came Jay's voice over the battelsuit's external speakers
"Jay, thank god" Tara said, "we need you to..."
"I know, get everyone's asses out of this mess..."
"Ok...ego....." Wildflower piped, she could have quite a forked tongue when it came to her exes.
"We need a way in" Dante said "You can get us in?"
"I'm the cheif of navigation, of course I can get us in" Jay said "Good to have you back by the way big guy....um....did you lose weight?"
"Less chit-chat more door opening!!" Keto snapped, seeing more scutters emerging around the corner.
Jay sighed then spoke "Holly, release drive room access, authorisation Chrysler. J, - 378 Kilo, Lima, Echo."
There was a beeping noise, following by the door hissing open. the group piled inside and Jay sealed the door, inside the room Captain Calvert was asleep in the captains chair.
"He couldn't have let us in?" Tara said, irritated.
Secure inside the command centre, Jay clambered out of the battlesuit.
"SHOOT IT!!!" yelled Keto a fourth time, Jay, grabbed a stapler off a nearby desk and tossed it at Keto's head then sat down at the helm control, tapping in codes and commands as he did so.
"Chrysler to Mk.10, we're in position...."

Who: Rosette, Shakespeare, Seymour & Rufus.Where: Outside the shipWhen: Just after Mk.10 got restored"Uhh, guys.. I need a little help here" Rufus called, holding his hand over a gaping tear in his suit. Rosette jumped to his side, and using the lack of gravity, carried him with one hand (making it look like she was super strong) back to the airlock, as any movement on his own part would've ruptured the suit more."Have you got any ideas to stop the skutters?" she asked as they bounded across the hull."Uhh... Not really the time for me to be thinking of a way to save the ship, i'm more concerned with my own safety..." he replied truthfully. Seymour looked up to Jay and Mk.10. "Are you guys ok?" he asked, watching them gliding through space towards the comet, with included effects of a trail of ice behind it."Could be better!" called Jay, still frantically trying to restart the E.V.E. Mk.10 looked around, "is that... a comet?" he asked, only just spotting it due to Jays suit being in the way. Instantly, he began saving himself, and activated his retro boosters. Unfortunately for Jay, they were in front of him..."Oww, thats a little hot!" he called, feeling his suit warming up incredibly fast as the jets of flame from Mk.10's boosters kicked in. Mk.10 turned them off, and let Jay do it, managing to manually vent air from the tanks in his suit, propelling them towards the airlock.Rosette almost threw Rufus in, and closed the door, giving him a chance to get inside, before opening it again ready for the others, Jay and Mk.10 turned slightly as the ship drifted a bit, putting them off course. Rosette saw this, and swore under her breath before taking the taser from Shakespeares hands, retracting the cables, and firing at Mk.10 again."I won't zap you, don't worry!" she said over the radio as the small magnets attached themselves to him. She used the magnets on her own suit to keep herself attached to the ship, while pressing the button to retract the taser chords, thus pulling them in.Mk.10 stood sheepishly in the centre of the room. "Sorry isn't quite good enough, is it?" he asked, mainly to Jay. "I didn't mean to threaten them... I'll make it up to you, i swear"A few seconds later, everyone was safely inside the ship, doffing their suits hastily, ready to save the ship from the skutters. Just as they finished, Rufus smiled, as if a giant bulb above his head blinked on."I know how we can stop them!" he shouted, leaping into the air almost excitedly, getting the feeling that he's about to save the day.Everyone turned to face him, with a quizical look on their faces..."so?... what is it?" jay asked, as Rufus didn't say anything."Well... the core is a huge ball of energy right?" he began, explaining it piece by piece."Well... whenever we activate the wormhole drive, it needs a tremendous amount of energy... that ball that powers the ship gets bigger to create that energy.... if we wait till the skutters get into the core, then fire the wormhole drive... we'll get rid of them all before they can do anything!" he said, smiling smugly."Sounds a bit... simple..." Seymour said, "I like it!"**Previously, elsewhere**"Smeg. Smeg. Smeg. Smeg." callum chanted, sat on the floor in the middle of the Holly control room with 4 armed skutters facing him with guns. "What did i ever do to you?... smegging jonesy"Just as they were about to fire, MK10's orders came through. They all dropped their guns, and ran towards the core. Callum got up quickly, and ran to Holly."where are they going?" he asked."To the core, looks like... I've heard the plans of the others, they'll need the wormhole drive..." he said, being helpful for once."Ahh... ok." callum said, turning around, spanner in hand, with a mission in mind.<tag people!! we need that wormhole drive working, and to get to the drive room and get that drive going as they all get into the reactor core!!>
